Finished my Carnwenhan yesterday. It's pretty cool but its base damage at 75 is just so horrible. Also my elvaan's gorilla arms obscure it from view in town.

Finally got the first upgrade done to my Pyf harp (50 iron plates.) x_X 75 colorless souls is gonna suuuuuuck....

I think the nicest advantage of Empyreans is that, when I told my LS I was down to needing 9 plates, they agreed to just get 'er done that night. A few hours of farming later and we were just done. Dynamis stages never worked like that, and still quite don't work like that due to the 2 hour time limit.

Colorless souls are as easy as they have ever been. Koios is very soloable and Gamayan/Chione are very straightforward duos (soloable by some jobs). Colorfuls are more easily obtained as well.

You'll be done with your harp in no time.

Well, not "no time" considering my LS is chipping away at six Empyreans at once and graduate school picks up again on June 2nd.

As long as it doesn't take me four years like Ghorn did, I''ll be happy. Smiley: laugh

I'm still sitting at like 8 souls and 3 iron plates. We keep talking about going out and just spamming the **** out of the IC in Altep, but never get around to it.

On a positive note, I have capped singing, wind, and almost done with string! Thank you VW NMs for the massive skillups!

I am also 48/60 and 32/100 on ghorn. I have farmed my attestation already and just need to finish up the Silverpieces to turn it in! Woot!

My string still isn't capped. I'm not sure how it's possible but it isn't.

Crazy! When I say almost, I'm still like 80 skill levels away, LOL, but for string, that is definitely almost! I accidentally dropped my Picollo and there weren't any on AH for quite a few weeks, so I purposely put a harp in my threnody macros until I could replace it. It totally helped my skillups!

Got my 75 G~Horn on Friday night! Like I mentioned up above, it would be a longer process then those that are pumping relics out in 30 days, but I don't care!!! Now for the trials. I have also changed LS's in the meantime and as soon as they heard I was working on G~Horn they announced in LS that if anyone had some spare time, they should start building some T3 pops in Aby for colorless souls for me /blush

On a whim I picked Sagasinger for my possible Rank II prize, because I didn't think I was actually going to win, and hey, career bard and it's a sword with "singer" in it and bard can equip it! And I didn't recognize any of the other gear.

And there it was, in my inbox. Smiley: lol

And now I'm staring at my gear and realizing I have no clue what a modern melee bard is going to be wearing. I've been lazybarding it in my Empyrean +2 since I have 90 Ghorn and I'm crunched for inventory until I finish my Maat trials (two more fights to go...)

Major achievement: Got into an Arch Dynamis Lord static with nothing but Relic weapon users. since apparently i'm the only bard on my server! So yay. (My bard actually is not that special, so that is amazing ...)

I finished my first neo-Salvage piece. I went with the Marduk body first because I missed the look. It's 10 fast cast and 2 refresh so it comes highly recommended.

"Oh **** my string skill is still 340."

Grats on that. Make sure you 99 it before you 99 your Ghorn, you won't be sorry.

Even with 99 harp I wasn't able to cap string for months (it didn't help that you couldn't use harp for lullabies at the time). String skill may be important if you don't always overwrite your harp songs with Ghorn songs, but you'll be able to get by most of the time.

At this point I'm just hoarding money (stashed away 8 million doing half assed farming.) I'm hoping either one of my old HNMs will let me back in when I finish my master's degree this May (since I have one useful shiny and I'm 75 horns away from a second useful shiny and I'm happier playing mage jobs anyway) and I'll be able to rebuild LS points and use that to buy myself some Arch DL kills for the horn. Then I can continue to hoard money and plates for the harp.

14 capes and 2 complete stacks of pebbles later, I've gotten my Rhapsode's Cape. Feels like I finally killed the roadrunner and I don't know what to do now.

It comes from Reives from Dho Gates, Marjami Ravine, and Yorcia Wield as one of the potential reive rewards at the end.
