The first time we went out, we both died. Was attacking a beetle and two Antica's jumped us. She died first, and I followed soon after. Talk about not able to do anything! Three things gang raping me. I at least was able to reraise myself that time. The second time, due to macro errors, punt died, but I lived. Was attacking a Dhalmel and she was getting double hit for hard damage. This time, punt did not die, but I was wiped since I was unable to get my spells cast. I attempted to repose birdman, however, it was resisted. The Dhalmel was asleep but woke up and with them both attacking me, I was not able to cure myself, and of course like the idiot I am, I forgot to have reraise on me, so... down I went.
On the bright side, my items were hot selling at the auction house. Thank goodness for that, I am tired of being broke. Also, Sav and I are much closer now. In fact, due to our closeness, I was able to convince her to focus on attacking, which meant she did not continuously attempt to get the bettle or neckie's attention. That is the reason she lived. I mean, she did not take a single hit!
I still have a strong urge to kick her for a field goal. My flipping word why do they have to be so... puntable?!?
Still, I lost a bit of experience, and I was getting so close to advancing. I am optimistic, though, I would be more so if my BLM job was not so gimped. It is not anywhere close to a proper ratio to my WHM job. I only went so far originally because I wanted to make travel much easier and cheaper on myself. Not to mention, it sure helps to be able to warp when I get a chance to telewhore. Some might see it as degrading the way I sell my body like that, but still, got to put fish on the table somehow.
It is difficult to find others to adventure with my BLM. Still, again, I am hopeful. Guess we shall see how tomorrow goes...
