What the buck? It’s not biting!

Many times have I sat there and stared at the surface of the pond.

Will it bite the next time I throw a brute leech in?

Of course, it won’t. It’s not a fish after all.

It’s a bucket.

How is it ever supposed to “get caught in my fishing line, just cause I’m using brute leeches”?

2016-06-10-fishing-for-rusty-bucket

It’s the rusty bucket I’m after. Actually, it’s called Magic bucket, and it’s a minion. But it originally comes from the rusty bucket that was frequently fished inside towns in Vana’diel.

Two stacks of brute leeches later, still no success.

The bucket is a lie, I tell you!!

The Weeping City: How to not defeat a Demon

My battle buddies revitalized me and we ventured deeper into the ruins.

When suddenly, we were warped up above the clouds!

We fought a weird phere thing that changed its shape all the time.

When suddenly, it became a black hole and sucked us in!

Was this the end?!

Of course not.

We were warped down to the ground and had to battle Atomoses again.

When we were done, we jumped down to a small version of the round Sphere enemy.

It looked like it contained a galaxy within itself. o.o;

I was mezmerized by its beautiful appearance!

When we defeated it, we were warped up to the sky again and battled the real thing!

Afterwards, we unlocked a passage to the real depth of the ruins.

Within, a demon was waiting for us.

And this demon had severe hair issues.

Instead of nice and soft hair, her hair was able to form into sharp knifes that knocked us out easily! @_@;; Scary!

In the end, we defeated her and took her green-yellow glowing ball that she was wearing as hair decoration.

Cait Sith appeared and took it.

Apparently, it was some important piece…

When suddenly, a monster took the rival pirate leader hostage! She had been following us to take revenger for her killed buddies.

It didn’t look good for her.

But our cool pirate leader managed to stall the demon until Cait Sith was done unlocking the magical staff from within the orb.

Then, Sithy used it!

A bright light spread through the halls banishing all demons.

We returned to the pirate house.

There, the female rival leader admitted her defeat and thanked us for saving her. She also gave us a grimoire with loads of important data about the Void Ark.

I knew it wasn’t over because to big dungeon raids, there are always 3 parts. ò.ó;;

In my sleep, I had a vision.

Diablos was floating around, going on a stroll.

Then he met that demon we thought we had defeated.

They didn’t seem at all like they were close to defeat at all. O.o;

I woke up and told Sithy about it. Sithy was clearly worried and rushed into reading the Grimoire to find further clues on how to proceed.

The Weeping City: The Weeping is real

Some months ago, I met with the Sky pirates again.

They had some news regarding the Void Ark with the demons on board.

I was invited into their house on the flying mountain.

Inside, the boss was already waiting for me.

Smart how I am, I forgot their names again…

Anyway, I was checking with the lil lala Mechanist girl.

She looked like she was in a real pinch. Didn’t the others tell me she had repaired the compass to locate the Void Ark?

That was when she approached Cait Sith…

And cuddled him like there was no tomorrow!!

After this cuddle attack, the lala mechanic gave us the compass.

We had some serious discussions and planned out next steps.

They are of course top secret!!

All I can tell you is that we located a place where the Ark must have crashed and landed there to explore it.

Not sure why we didn’t do it through the air or while flying, but okay. Maybe we would miss something.

It looked nice at first, but you could see there were ruins hidden everywhere.

And those ruins were inhabited by the most terrifying spider-scorpion create I’ve ever seen!

Also other demons lived there that wouldn’t let us pass…

A battle erupted and I lost consciousness.

Was this the victory of the inhabitants of the Weeping City?

Who even named the place “weeping”? Was it because everyone was crying because I was knocked out?

I don’t have any other explanation.

An unusual Challenge in Hullbreaker Isle (Hard)

I received an unusual challenge from a quite familiar looking person. They invited me to some parts of the Hullbreaker Isle that I’ve never been to before.

2016-06-10-hullbreaker-hard-01

There, some pirates were fighting against members of the Maelstorm. At the same time, it seemed like they were pretending to be taming dinosaurs like in Jurassic Park o.ô

2016-06-10-hullbreaker-hard-02

When suddenly, one of the Velociraptors broke free and attacked me! O.O;;

It knocked me out. When I came to me, I found myself locked into a cage! The pirates had captured me! Nooooo!!

Thankfully, my loyal Ifrit was there to melt the metal and break me free. <3

2016-06-10-hullbreaker-hard-03

I quickly called all my friends to help me smash the pirates into the ground.

Unfortunately, due to the demotivation and lost interest in saving Eorzea, only Loxie and Trem answered the call. Everyone else was either nowhere to be seen or busy with some obviously unimportant stuff. Nothing was as important as getting revenge on people who lock up Lalafell ò.ó

2016-06-10-hullbreaker-hard-04

We rushed through the place and smashed any attacker.

2016-06-10-hullbreaker-hard-05

When we arrived at some Maelstorm platform, I remembered that I was called there for a challenge!

Some Roga that I seem to have met during some important Warrior of Light business wanted to fight me.

2016-06-10-hullbreaker-hard-06

Well, he lost, obviously.

What do you expect when facing 3 Warriors of Light at once when you’re “only some normal dude”?
