Joe's gw2 Stuff & Other Stuff, 10/29 - 10/30

Another good session today. I did my usual, running with my renegade. I worked on some crafting, and then did my dailies. And like usual, robean ran with me I ran with robean, trying to keep up with her as she helped me unlock stuff. Can't say enough about what a big help she's been, especially when doing dungeons later on, when I got left behind. She actually runs back to me and has me follow her, when by default I just drop out of the dungeon, since I'm probably going to get kicked anyway.

Oh, and a word about dungeons in Guild Wars 2:

The dungeons in FF XIV are NOWHERE NEAR what they are in GW2. Dungeons in FF XIV are basically long corridors, with some enemies and bosses thrown in. A lot of GW2's dungeons have jumping puzzles, narrow ledges where you can easily fall, and other traps that can severely damage/debuff you if not kill you outright. Players don't kick you out of these out of maliciousness. It's because if you get stuck in one of these areas, it's next to impossible to catch back up. I don't condone being kicked (not gonna learn how to do these if I'm just going to keep getting kicked out of them), but I definitely understand it.

Now, you CAN type down "/gg" in chat, and it respawns you at a checkpoint, but A#1: I often forget about this out of habit (by default, I'm clicking "Leave Party" before I get booted from the group). A#2: It can only be done out of combat, and since everyone is on a headlong rush to the last boss, this almost never happens. And A#3: I don't know where these "checkpoints" are. For all I know, I'd just respawn at the very very beginning of a dungeon, while everyone else is almost at the final boss, making this totally moot.

And here's the vinyl 33rpms I played today:

Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
The Chieftans - Self-Titled Debut
Stan Getz - With Laurindo Almeida
Tschaikovsky - The Nutcracker Suite (side One)


This part was done quickly, since I have to get a nap in, due to poor sleep.

Didn't do a FF XIV session today. Late getting home from work, and had a hell of a time trying to stay awake afterwards. I'll have to try for next week I guess. I might also change my FF XIV times to Tuesday and Wednesday mornings as well, since I'm off on those days and can actually do something. :/>

A pretty honky dory session today. I got disconnected for some reason, so that threw me off for a bit. Otherwise I just did some crafting, and then did all my dailies, including fractals. And robean jumped in later on as well. :)>

The vinyl records that I played this evening were:

Paul Simon - Graceland
Queen - Flash Gordon Soundtrack
Bill Justis - Plays 12 More Big Instrumental Hits
Maurice Revel - Bolero

Okey dokey, gotta get ready for work now. <Take care.>, guys. And have a great night/day. ;)>
