Used my Fantasia potion and visited the aesthetician! I was able to make myself shorter (amazingly) and my hair and tats are on point now. This is totally how I would look, as myself, in a fantasy environment... Lol.

I'm also showing off my ilvl 142 grimoire that I just got! Level 58 now and loving the Summoner life!

Fate drops are still limited, but you get 5 per map and map costs are at 75 tomes of poetics. So you will do your daily run mass dungeon runs (Labyrinth, Syrcus, WOD) and you can get them finished within a week.

It's frustrating being on a PS3 and dealing with the PSN stuff.

Anyone logging hours today? I just go to Heavensward but I need to go back and work on my Trials of the Braves for my Zodiac. Let me know if you need a SMN in your party!

Really sorry to hear that. I hope with the patch, it may fix your major disconnections issues unless it is not game side related and is your ISP related due to weather conditions or something... I know some people in the south  were having issues with internet due to flash flooding.

So... I found this. Thank you +Michael Lyon​ for this! Anyone looking for help, hit me up. I main as SMN and I've already been through a ton of stuff. I'm currently working on completing the rest of the story and getting into HW.

I'm also in the RoG FC, a very active free company that's always looking to help.

Well, I main WHM healer, and manage my pet and hotbars, and everything and I do it all on my PS3. I do not have a PC to play it on, I have a Mac, so I did order the Heavensward Mac version of the game along with the Heavensward PS3 expansion. It is possibly more challenging on a console to do it, but if I can do it on a PS3 with latency issues from Japan on a NA server, it is definitely doable on a PS4 on a NA server in the US. But healing is definitely not for everyone. You should play the job you feel is best for you and go with it. But yeah, you definitely will want to get THM up to level 26 for Swiftcast, that's a necessity in end game content, especially as a SMN where you assist the healers by raising players on the go during fights and what not.

So let's see, ilvl 115, got my Atma relic, and figured out glamour. Not too shabby!

Yes I started MCH but I hate it. Probably won't ever use it. I'm leveling ARC now so I can get Hawkeye. And I have three books left to get my Animus. Two if you don't include the one I just got.

Anyone gonna be on later? I know I will!

+Patrick Lyddy Just enjoy whatever you are doing in the game and the rewards of completing it when you do. There is no hurry or race to get to the end. If its worth it to you, that's all that really matters.

When I was doing my books, I have done them 2 times for 2 different relics, the first time was before they nerfed the FATEs and stuff, it took hours to wait for some of the rare FATEs, but the 2nd time, after they nerfed it, I still had to wait a few hours for some, but most usually I only waited about an hour or two at most, and I got a book done in a day, one per day if I focused just on doing the books only. There's one rare FATE, I forget the name though, in the East Shroud, and it spawns as the second part of a two part FATE, so you won't see the name of the FATE for your book on the map unless you complete part one first.

Best of luck!

So I learned today that the best time to play is early AM. There was hardly anyone in Mor Dhona and the server ran great after my own network issues were sorted.

Time to log back in and get back to my Braves books!

I normally play 10pm - 1am sometimes a bit earlier or later, so if you see me online during that time send me a tell! Happy to friend up and help out if you need a healer sometime or a SMN/BLM/NIN at level 50 or lower.

Story
Tagline
Knitter for Hire, Crocheter, Dreamer, Enabler!
Introduction
Welcome to my profile! If you've found me, you must be a crafter! I'm a knitter first, crocheter (hooker) second. I love taking on new challenges in patterns and in life.

I've built up a slight reputation for "enabling" other crafters so if you follow me, you've been warned. I like to post about new patterns, new yarns, new sales, and all around crafty things that are interesting or intriguing. 

As for the social aspect, I'm looking to network mostly with other crafters. I'm an amateur photographer, beginner designer, writer and also somewhat of a grammar nazi. I blog irregularly at www.kobuu.com, mostly about knitting and various projects on which I'm working. Greatest accomplishment of 2013 was to knit my entire Ravelry queue. That said, it's now 2 pages long, again, and will pose just as much a challenge going into 2014. 

Thanks for stopping by! I am always on the lookout for more connections and really enjoy meeting new people in hangouts or via posts. It's a great big world out there but we, as humans, can make it just a little bit nicer by connecting with each other.

The owner, Kristin, has working knowledge of current designers like Stephen West. We bonded over that instantly. We then had a discussion about different kinds of yarns, I showed her my current project (Fractal) which she enjoyed. There's a couple of places to sit and just knit/crochet here and still feel welcome. On street parking was a snap, the other customers were friendly, even to a male knitter, and overall the store was neat and PACKED with yarn. One caveat: there is no Malabrigo or MadelineTosh here. The owner has decided not to carry them due to supply issues. This is not a fault, just a warning if you're looking for those. I, for one, enjoyed the hand-dyed yarns, the small batch stuff, and the array of Cascade products there! I will definitely be going back and will enjoy every minute!

Pretty nice atmosphere. Waiters are a little pushy with clearing your table as you go. Have to tell them to leave the sauce if you have an empty plate of it. Overall really good value and you leave feeling full but not heavy. Beware, I think they undercook the fried dough. It was cold and gooey inside.

This place has become our new favourite breakfast spot. The staff is friendly, there is a ton of space and even on this past Mother's Day, there was no wait for a table and the food came out fast and hot! Will have to come back for lunch or dinner.

Order online, delivery is fast and food was delicious! We tried this place on a whim and were glad we did. Specifically, the Lo Mein was made perfectly to order. I actually just placed another order with them as I was starving and we needed something quick and cheap. Their prices are a *little* high on some dishes and about average on others. Expect a great deal of food though. You won't be hungry afterwards. I will warn that I think they use MSG. It's that ever hungry for more Chinese food thing when you eat their stuff. But it's TASTY so I kind of don't care. Give them a shot! Their website is actually very secure. I place my order right through there and they just call me when they get here!
