At a Crossroads....

Anybody know what significance today holds?  Well it's actually the 1 year anniversary of my blog!  Wow, 1 year... how the time flies huh?  While this should be a joyous day filled with party balloons, cake, and a Prock shaped pinata we can all beat to hell, it's also a day of reflection.  Brace yourself for a lot of text.

Mage Solo AOE'ing - Revisited (Mover Pulling Vs. Speed Scrolls)

Alright young Mage, so you just hit 60 and you want to maximize your time by solo AOE'ing right?  You want to use that brand new Frost Nova to crush your foes beneath a mountain of ice, right?  But, you're still kinda noobish and are unsure how to best accomplish this....  well I have two options for you.

Fansite: Fiesta Online Costume Vault

 Stumbled upon another Fiesta related blog, the Fiesta Online Costume Vault!  I'm not sure how long this blog has been in existence, but from browsing it a bit, it's well put-together, clean, and informative.  There are some great screenshots in there from both released and unreleased costumes... looks like someone's been messing with cash shop links!  (I used to do the same thing!  Just lazy to do so now.)

Anyway, if you're pixel-obsessed like I am, I suggest you stop by over there and have a look.

Conquering Dragon's Tomb - Clearing Mobs & MiniBoss Solos (Mage)

Doing the Dragon's Tomb instance dungeon is still one of my favorite activities in Fiesta.  I've now gone through DT with all four original classes, Trickster coming soon.  By far, my favorite class to take through DT is the Mage.  While I oftentimes leave pacing up to the Tank as I don't want to overburden him, it's quite evident that for the most part, a Tank isn't really necessary, at least not until the end.  However, getting from start to finish (just before Cornelius) is oftentimes a good measure of the worth of the Tank in your party.  Same can be said for your Cleric.

(Sorry about the audio, looks like the music I selected has been blocked.  Will have to re-work this at a later time... though I think if you go to my YouTube channel and select the video, the audio is still there.  Still, I don't want to use a workaround and get myself in trouble, so new audio is on the way!)

Stupidly Easy Part II - A Naked Mage? The Level 20 Promo Dissected

Alright, so the naked Cleric experiment wasn't all that impressive, I mean I have three options to heal myself, Heal skill, HP Potion, and HP Stone... so being naked wasn't all that bad, plus I had a shield.  So what if I didn't?  And what if I went one step massively further and upped the ante by going with the squishiest of them all?  Think it can still be done sans armor?  Let's find out!

Okay, now to be completely honest, I tried this promotion probably over 10 times testing various methods and sort of practicing.  Each time I gained a bit more insight into what I can take away or handicap myself further with.  And here is what I came up with....

Strange Luck - Treasure Chests

Just found it really odd, but still kinda cool... found four chests in one day!  Also weird that it happened so close to maintenance... usually over the course of a week, those chests get stuck in inaccessible places until maintenance clears them out on Tuesday... if only my enhancing luck was this good!  *sigh*

AEW Near Trumpy Remains - BCT Spot

FOS - Near Sylphs

Trumpy Remains - Map Corner

Trumpy Remains - Entry Room (hiding in the corner, but grabbable!)

Enhancement Glows - Trickster

Didn't see something like this in any organized posting, so I figured I'd post it here.  Since I was enhancing my own set of Claws, I was able to snap screenies of each successive attempt and show the graphical representation of each enhancement level.

+0, +1, +2
+6 (this one might be wrong, have to doublecheck)
+10 Image to come... too many fails, ran out of stones.. bleh.

Stupidly Easy - The *NEW AND IMPROVED!* Level 20 Promo

 Alright, I just don't get what people's problem was with this quest.  If they had been at all actually playing this game from level 1 - 20, they should be fairly versed in how to use their class at this point.  Granted going into the Shadow Dungeon the first time blind, without knowing what to expect, you could be in for a rough time.  But OutSpark and OnsOnSoft went just a bit too far.

The Shadow Dungeon oftentimes is the budding new player's first glimpse at hardship.  Working to overcome hardships like this builds character and a sense of pride in your character that you went in, maybe failed a few times, but figured it out on your own and got the job done.  Now, it's a walk in the park.
