Joe's Guild Wars 2 & FF XIV stuff, 9/25/2020

Public
Thursday

This morning I did some Pinball FX3 recording (non-streaming), and took my best game out of the session, which was:



I also recorded a Pinball Arcade session as well, and the best one?:



Whoaaa! Found me another desktop background.


So, for my Guild Wars 2 stream today I did a couple dailies, and then continued on the level 70 storyline quests, and eventually made it to the early level 80 ones. Almost there!

Tried out a new dual-sword build as well. It's a bleed-based (damage over time) build it seems, so I'd have to switch out all my gear from "precision" and "ferocity", that determines crit rate and crit damage, respecively, towards "condition" - aka damage over time - damage, as well as expertise, which is a stat the increases the durations on all the debuffs you inflict. So I just switched back to my dual-axe build, figuring all that logistical stuff can wait for another time. I really need to finish out all these story quests, so that damn "You've got mastery points!" popup will stop doing its thing (masteries won't be unlocked until all the Vanilla and some of the next expansion quests are done, thus the reason for the urgency).

And the records I played today were:

Richard Pryor - That N****r's Crazy
Funkadelic - One Nation, Under a Groove
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
Tschaikovsky - Violin Concerto in D, Opus #35

Friday

This morning off-stream I decided to make a gameplay video of my usual routine when playing FF XIV. Just something I wanted to do.



And also this morning I played a little bit of Guild Wars 2. Just played my elementalist for a little while, about 15 minutes or so. Another lucky break, I ended up helping kill the Shadow Behemoth. :O>

Wow! ANOTHER desktop background for me!


A very eventful Guild Wars 2 session this evening. I worked on the Vanilla storyline quests with my warrior. Come to find out later that I didn't have to all this time. I could've just went on the quests menu and clicked the "Heart of Thorns" section and clicked Start. If only I knew then what I know now.......

But after two, count em', TWO, Heart of Thorns quests I unlocked masteries. And best of all:....

I actually tried animating the text, but that would've taken all night to get right so, no....


But after this, after trying to make head or tail out of how these work - they're nothing like I had anticipated, they're actually game perks, not stat bonuses, a la Diablo 3 - I got back to working on map completion and event-running. So, things are back to normal now. For now.......

I also tried using a hammer weapon, but didn't get into it much. Too "stiff", for lack of a better word. But I did, however, start using my greatsword weapon again, and wondered why I even stopped using one. Awesome as hell:



But it looks like, from here on out, I'll just keep doing what I was doing, map completion and jumping into events - Guild Wars 2's version of FATEs - whenever I can. I kinda want to try my hand at doing dungeons, but these things are goofy as hell. No trinity (ie tank, healer, DPS), and no level sync (this would trigger some serious WoW flashbacks!) that I know of. These would seem to be a real mess. Maybe some other time on these....

Oh, and for the records . . . . . You know the drill....

The Moody Blues - In Search of the Lost Chord
MC5 - Kick Out the Jams
Public Enemy - Yo! Bum Rush the Show!
The Dubliners - Seven Drunken Nights
GWAR - Scumdogs of the universe

Okay, time to go. Thanks for checking this out, and see ya next time. ;)>
