Last week in Final Fantasy XI
The week started with being awarded to the Copper Emblem of Service II
and finished with the Iron Emblem of Service III.
My Dark Knight raced from level 71 to 73 and learned finally the "Dread Spikes" spell.
New Merits on Black Mage unlocked the Ancient Magic spells "Flood II" and "Quake II".

Members in the Linkshell needed help on Rank Mission 9-1, killing a splitting slime in Gustav Tunnel. Well, our first attempt was a mess. The splash AoE killed us two Black Mages rather fast and the main tank

hitting the wrong mob and thus waking two up didn't help it.

On attempt number two we Spawned, slept, gravity and sneak pulled it to a save area.
There was enough room for Mages to stand far away on a ledge while melees took it to the opposite side.
The fight went smooth and easy this time. No matter which BLM got attacked because of Sleepga hate the 2nd one would cast Sleepga then. Rince and repeat. Victory!

In Japan the annual VanaFest (Vana'Diel Festival) took place.
The announcement updates were like dropping a nuke on the FFXI community.
Cities and Linkshell chat was full of it. Lot of blood flow yesterday.

I'll cover the VanaFest/announcement topic in a separate post.

funny thing is everyone is acting like the server migration will cause the end of the world where if you take a pratical look at the aspect of things it makes sense. take the lower populated worlds and merge them with more stable worlds and it dose seveal things, the major of them is it reduces the work lode and down time when they need to do maitence to the servers so it saves time for the workers and means less down time for us players

It is probably my least favorite part in fact. I'm going to lose my name ! :(

If I were still playing, I'd probably lose my character name which I had been using since 2 weeks past NA PC launch... and probably would have quit at that point. Bumping the level cap to 99 and the inevitable gear/balance issues to come is just not worth while.
