September 30, 2011 - On with the show!
I haven't been on RO much lately, because I just started back to school a few weeks ago and it's really more social interaction than I can bear most days. Still, I've logged on a few times, done a few TIs, helped my guildies get zeny or gear, done some potting. I tamed an Incubus the other day! He's so cute. I named him Emir.
Now if only Gravity would introduce a tame for Anubis, my RO life would be complete. :<
My HP is inching ever closer to AB. She's 92/52 now, almost 93. One of my guildies was nice enough to get her a +7 Dress Hat , and I scored myself a +5 Dea Staff . Now I just need a good card for them both. I'd like to get a White Lady card for the Dress Hat, but I doubt that's ever going to happen. But the Dea Staff? Yeah, I'm stumped on what to put in it. I'll figure something out eventually, oh well.
Everyone's doing this thing, so I guess I'll do it too. LOL BANDWAGON.
How long have you played on iRO?
Off and on since open beta. So about eight years?
How many characters do you have in total?
18. 9 female (main account) and 9 male (alt account).
Do you have any 150s currently? If so, what did they 150 on?
No, not yet. I'll get there eventually.
Do you have any transcendants and/or third classes? And do you ever regret transing and/or getting them to third class them?
I have one trans character and one third class character that went trans. I don't regret transing either of them, and I certainly don't regret getting *Chlorine* to Wanderer. SR is too much fun.
Do you believe in the myth about stats improving NPC upgrade chances?
What is your favorite town?
Niffleheim! Glast Heim! I really like Kunlun and Ayothaya, too.
Have you ever encountered or spoken with a Game Master in-game?
I talked to Oda once. Seems nice.
How many times have you "quit" the game?
I never really quit, but there have been times when I've gone weeks or even months without logging on. School, work, and life in general will just get in the way of gaming, sometimes. Also I've been known to become distracted by console RPGs; I once spent over 400 hours playing FFTactics, and during that entire time I never touched RO once.
What was the first item or equipment ever given to you to keep by another player (GMs count)?
My friend gave me a Kitty Band, way back in the day when it was one of the most coveted headgears ever.
In your opinion, what is the best item you've ever owned or borrowed?
Oh, since hitting gypsy I've actually had some really good items. I really like my Varient Shoes, and I just got a +4 (lol low upgrades) Immune Valk Mant. I'm pretty fond of my +4 Peerless Crown of Deceit, though when I reach 100 INT it won't be quite as 1337 as it is now. I hope they implement a NPC to take cards out of items, because I'd like to salvage that CoD.
What is your favorite headgear and why?
Too many to list! I'm a sucker for adorable headgears, I have more than I could ever use just sitting in my Kafra. I must admit a certain fondness for my Rabbit Earmuffs, though.
What was the last monster that killed you?
Fucking Mysteltainn. That bastard.
How many hours, max, have you ever done of leveling straight without stopping?
Oh God. I once spent a week straight leveling with a couple of my friends. We would level and go through quests all day and most of the night, I think we got like fifteen or more hours of leveling done each day? It was crazy.
When was the last time you were asked for heals, warps, buffs or itamz by a noobie?
What is the biggest reason you play RO currently?
It's fun. And I have a lot of friends that play.
What made you chose your first class when you first began iRO?
I chose Acolyte because I like helping people. It ended up not being my main, but I still enjoy playing her.
How did you meet the majority of your friends (in RO)?
Oh, I just wander around randomly and join in conversations. PUGs for TIs are a great way to meet people, too.
Have you played on other [legit] ROs besides iRO?
I've only ever played iRO, sadly.
If you are/were well known, what do/would people know you for?
Being a huge bitch. :D No, not really. Helping out newbies, I guess?
How often do you use Battle Mode?
All the time.
How often do you WoE?
What is your most memorable experience on iRO?
Getting 99 for the first time on *Chlorine*. I was on the tail end of a seven-hour stint in ID doing an Ice Titan TI when it happened. I was beside myself with happiness, and I was so excited that even after I logged off and tried to go to bed I couldn't sleep. It was crazy.
Have you ever played RO in the nude *v*?
No. I've played it in my underpants, though.
Have you ever played RO drunk?
Not really. I have played it so buzzed on caffiene that I could barely keep my hands steady enough to hit the hotkeys, though. That was pretty fun.
Have you ever played iRO while engaging in any sort of naughty activities?
No, can't say as I have.
What kinds of food would you assume are stuck to/inside your keyboard right now?
I don't eat or drink around my computer anymore. I learned that lesson a long time ago.
Do you have one or more inactive novices you’ve made simply to save a particular name? How many?
Nope. My names are a little...strange, so I usually have no problem getting them.
Are you in a guild? If so, give a sample of what guild chat commonly consists of ;)
Yes indeed. Guild chat usually consists of bad jokes, discussions of what gear various guild members need, and glad tidings of Valkyrie Present events. Thank you, Azure Breeze, we here at ShinRa Electric Company value your contribution to our blue herb funds.
What do you think of this survey?
It's pretty fun.
