So long, sweet Gold Bolt.

24 Feb


MillionsKnives’ Gold Bolt

R.I.P 24/02/08

This is what happens when people come into my room and talk to me while I’m EXPing Ranger. People who’ve never played FFXI just don’t understand ._.

50k Bastokan Conquest Points down the drain… on a stupid Imp… I’ve had this bolt lying around since I was a level 30 Ranger and now after using it for only 9 levels its gone. /emo

It’s hard enough to EXP enough in the middle lands for the 30k CP Windurst  arrow :/ so even if I switch back to Bastok it’d be aaaages till I could get one again ; ; . If I do get one l’ll save its use for events, no more EXP party usage >=|

Is it worth using my one time item retrieval on this? I can’t decide! I don’t think I’d ever be stupid enough to drop a good bit of gear. I’m only stupid enough to fire it at a mob. So this seems like the only situation I’d use that in. I just cant decide if I should save it for something more useful, like, say, when I have a Annihilator and drop that.

Whats everyone’s thoughts? Use my item retrieval or wait two years till I have enough CP to get one again? I’m not too sure I want to draw GMs into looking through my logs :/ I mention windower every so often and they might see my Windowed macros etc >_< Is it risky?

Edit: Just looked it up and it was only 32k CP, that is a lot better. No point using retrieval on it if its only 32k CP ^_^

Edit: This time last year I got Sky access, I’ve now offically been stuck on Divine Might for over a year D: Kinda funny really…

    Aww man that sucks ; ; Ive done that with one of the event eggs which cheesed me off, hmmm… I would use item retrivel :/ since, you arnt dumb enough to drop a piece of gear then regret it, but the windower thing is dodgey D:

    you say you arent dumb enough, but mistakes arent made by dumb people, theyre mistakes – you dont have to be stupid to make them. i wouldnt waste an item retrieval then be banging my head when i drop something i cant replace

    i wouldnt bother w/ item retreival, 50k conquest isnt really that much; how much longer is this arrow good for anywho? if you want it back take the oppurtunity to level some lowbie jobs and make the CP

    Suckage. :/

    I’m a bit of a RNG noob, good sir, so I don’t know whether this item is worth using your ‘whoops lol’ retrieval card; although my gut feeling is that it’s probably not. x:


    I don’t really have anything else to say, other than I like the fact that the related posts are: ‘Quiting forever’ and ‘IM SO PISSED!!!!!!!!!!!’ x:

    lol ty for the comments you three. In answer, this bolt is good to use forever if im using my OBow. I kinda agree that I should prolly wait till I farm 50K CP again. With the rate it takes me to lvl lower lvl jobs that really will be two years tho :/ Guess my DMG will just not have to be so uber on WS anymore D:

    The related posts are visions of the future as people start to out parse me because of this!! XD

    unfortunately I couldnt get it to work on my wordpress, and thats why I made a blogspot one. WordPress uses the same template themes for everyone and that is why you can’t add javascript mods. But I only have a free one, so I don’t know if it will work on paid blogs.

    Msg me if you need any help ^^
