So after a rather lengthy fight, I found out an inportant bit of information. It turns out that Sabotenders will aggro! Yes, I had two jump me so I was not able to get a single spell off so I was dropped /sigh. Thus, it was back to Jeuno.
An interesting turn of events, I ran across an adventerer who wanted a teleport. He claimed how he had not been around for like three years, and was broke (welcome to my world). I sent a party invite to go ahead and be kind this time. The person had to ask how to accept my invite? You are a level 60+ blue mage? Someone explain how this happened.
Well after that, I decided it was time to work on BLM some more. I used my return ring to zap me to the Meriphataud Mountains. Then, I just started hacking away at gobs and Wandering Saplings until I figured it was time to call it a night.
