They Fought The Law, And The Law Won.

If you have not heard by now, there was a huge Salvage/Nyzul/Sandworm glitch awhile back that allowed people to increase the normal droprate of items. Until now, many people thought they got away with using this bug to get free item drops, but apparently SE has not taken kindly to the situation, and issued mass bannings. The players on Odin have kept it pretty quiet who was banned and who wasn't.

My character, who has never even entered Salvage, is perfectly fine, and noone I know personally on Odin was affected by this series of bannings (that I know about anyway). I do feel bad for some of the people who recieved the banstick, but honestly this just makes me feel better about my groups shitty Nyzul Isle drop rate. That however, is another story...

Edit: Turns out I do know a few people who got banned. Not sure if they are temp or not, but I'll be nice and keep it quiet for now. :-/

Seraph the Red Mage!?!

The hell you say!?! Yeah, I've sort of put Paladin on the back burner and taken a shot at leveling Red Mage, to be the more complete player I guess. It's been moderately fun so far, and I have gotten to level 50 with capped skills, and full AF in storage waiting to now be worn. Not too terrible of a situation to be in.

There isn't much to talk about, the job revolves around refreshing the MP users, casting haste on everyone who wants it, debuffing the monster when necessary, and healing when able. Oh, and the routine ten minute converts, to try to compensate for my terrible Elvaan MP situation. -_-

Anyway, Ararith and I got to joking about being able to Ballista once my RDM was 75, and the topic of how I would go about winning came up. I suggested I could just kite her with DoT and movement speed, like any good RDM should.

I'll post a more detailed discussion about my thoughts on RDM once I get to 60 and can take my elemental staves and AF for a test drive. Right now, I do feel sort of like just a refresh whore, and with only decent gear, my enfeebles don't always stick, and that makes me a sad panda. More details when I get to it!...
