Solo Black Wizard Party

I decided to go for the gold immediately. I have done a couple of solo parties before, but never recorded them like this. I thought I would try one of the hardest ones right off the bat. I have never seen a solo black wizard party recorded anywhere (of course, there might be a reason for that), though many have theorized it. Let's see if I can do it...

Monday, May 10, 2004

12:24 a.m.   Started...here we go.

12:29 a.m.   Oops...won the fight with two mages. Saved and went after it again.

12:33 a.m.   Got it. FIRE is very handy at the beginning of the game. Saved it at the inn with one black mage. Time for the fun to begin...

12:34 a.m.   Imp got a critical hit, but I survived. Reached Level 2. I just wanted to get started. I will quit tonight after Level 3.

Level 2

12:38 a.m.   Five imps wiped me out. I used FIRE every round, and it still wasn't enough. Resetting...

Here lies Solo, slain by five imps...

12:42 a.m.   I tried to fight with my knife, and almost lost to three imps. Since I have to return to the inn after every fight, might as well just use FIRE every round (I will not survive otherwise).

Fire! Fire!

Three imps? Barely escaped...

12:45 a.m.   Five imps beat me again. Pathetic.

12:48 a.m.   Next fight: Five imps. I hit Reset.

12:48 a.m. (still)   Five imps again. Reset.

12:52 a.m.   Took down two parties of four imps, and one party of three (saving between each). Reached Level 3. I am quitting for the night.

Four imps...who's your daddy?

Level 3. More FIRE spells? Doh!

Tuesday, May 11, 2004

12:18 p.m.   Logging in.

12:25 p.m.   I got hit by four imps on the way back to the inn (what were the chances) and barely managed to get away.

12:33 p.m.   In an attempt to replenish some of my money, I got a strike first and attempted to fight three imps with my pocket knife. I managed to win the fight with 24 HP, and didn't go back to the inn. Instead, I got in another fight (with three imps again) and used my magic to beat them. It was a calculated risk, but it worked. Then I went and saved it, resulting in a net gain of 6 G. To anybody else crazy enough to attempt this: do not buy things that you do not absolutely have to have at the beginning, like potions. You will need all the money you can get for the inn.

12:41 p.m.   Yeehaw!! Took down five imps. I had 1 HP for the last three rounds, and every round the remaining imp struck first and missed. You gotta love that!

12:47 p.m.   I did the math. I have 36 G, and I need 142 EXP for Level 4. If I fight six parties of four imps each (24 EXP), I will level up, and with the net loss of 6 G on each fight (24 G from the fight minus 30 G for the inn), I have just enough money to do it. Five imps is still too much for me. Until I reach Level 4, I will just reset the game (and I will not record it) if I don't get a party of four imps.

12:57 p.m.   After three successful fights with four imps, one party got to strike first and killed me.

Imp scum. You'll pay for that.

1:01 p.m.   Just for fun, I tried a party of five imps, and won it again. I can now afford one party of three imps. Maybe five imps isn't that bad after all...

1:06 p.m.   Tried five imps again. They kicked my butt. 40 EXP to Level 4...

1:08 p.m.   Five imps destroyed me again. I guess I am too greedy...

1:11 p.m.   Almost beat them! Was down to one imp and had 5 HP left. I dealt 5 DMG to him and he struck back for 4. Next round he happened to come out first and killed me.

1:14 p.m.   Booyeah!! Take that!!! 10 EXP to Level 4.

1:18 p.m.   Four imps almost killed me, but I beat them. Level 4!! I have work to do, so I am logging off for now.

Level 4

6:14 p.m.   Logging in.

6:49 p.m.   Now that I have four Level 1 spells, I can usually do two fights between each trip to the inn, unless one of them is a five imp party. Still don't think I'm ready for the Temple of Fiends, but I'll attempt it at Level 5. I am now only 64 points away, so it shouldn't be long. I have a meeting at 7:00, so I am logging out for now.

Wednesday, May 12, 2004

11:54 p.m.   Logging in. I plan to get to Level 5, beat Garland, and possibly get to Pravoka during this session.

12:02 p.m.   Level 5. I bought a heal and a pure with my remaining money (wow, that's not very much for all the leveling I've been doing). I am going to take a stab at the Temple of Fiends.

Level 5

12:09 p.m.   I made it to the Cap and got out, only hitting a ghoul (which I killed in one shot of FIRE) and running away from four wolves and a grey wolf. When I got out, though, I then realized that I didn't have any more tents to save it. I will have to make the long trek back to Coneria without saving first.

12:15 p.m.   Made it! How lucky can you be? Ran into a party of five imps which I dispatched, and then managed to run away from a party of four imps ten steps away from Coneria. Saved with the Cap...hey doesn't that DOUBLE my Absorb rating? I need some more levels (and two tents) before I try that again. Right now, I got the munchies. Be back in 20-25 minutes.

12:42 p.m.   I'm back.

1:11 p.m.   Slain by imps, which is now a rare occurrence. I am also venturing north to fight wolves and grey imps, though only one fight at a time, usually. 370 points to Level 6.

1:16 p.m.   Slain by imps again. Tried to do three fights and got nailed. Too greedy... 322 points to Level 6.

1:34 p.m.   Level 6. I now have three tents and a heal. I am heading up to the TOF, where I will try to fight Garland. If I fail, I will level up some more.

Level 6

1:36 p.m.   Saved outside the TOF. Going in...

1:40 p.m.   Hey, I won!! Saved it at Coneria. I now have five tents and a heal (I didn't try for the cabin, because it would have been too long of a stint inside the TOF). I'm going to see how close I can get to Pravoka. A lot of running, more than likely.

Ooh, I'm really scared. Die, wuss!

Thanks, dude!

*Yawn* Is there any way we can skip this?

1:42 p.m.   Two ogres?! Aaahh!!

Run away! Run away!

1:44 p.m.   Arrived: Pravoka. Yay! Had to save it in a tent, because I had no money. This might be a short-lived trip.

1:46 p.m.   The pirates tore me up. Nope, not yet. I have class, so I am logging out for now.

Just too much for me

6:48 p.m.   Logging in.

6:57 p.m.   The only thing I can beat over here is two creeps, which only gives me 30 G (not enough to save at the inn). I have to go back to Coneria until I am stronger.

7:02 p.m.   Made it back to Coneria. I need a couple of more levels.

7:25 p.m.   Beat five imps with no magic and low HP! Bought a LIT spell and saved it. Forget about the wolves for now. Imps give more G for just a little less EXP.

7:53 p.m.   I am successfully fighting three battles with imps between saves almost every time. I am now 525 points away from Level 7. I need to take a short break.

10:07 p.m.   Logging in.

10:52 p.m.   Level 7. Another Level 1 spell. I am quitting for today.

Level 7

Thursday, May 13, 2004

1:53 p.m.   Logging in.

2:53 p.m.   I had a few tough fights, but am now within 1,188 points of Level 8. I am going to make another run at Pravoka. I have enough G now to buy an ICE spell, and with five FIREs and three ICEs, I think I can take out nine pirates.

2:59 p.m.   Arrived: Pravoka. I will buy an ICE spell, save it, then try the pirates.

3:08 p.m.   Pirates destroyed me, but I think I can survive over here now. I will stick around and see what happens.

Still can't do it

3:11 p.m.   Yeehaw! Took down an ogre!!

3:24 p.m.   Level 8. I am going to try the pirates again.

Level 8

3:29 p.m.   Almost won. I am going to buy gloves and a couple of potions, without saving, and try it again (should have done this before the last try).

Close, but no cigar

4:08 p.m.   I tried the fight about a dozen times, and got close every time, but couldn't ever win. I am going to get another spell; I think SLOW might be helpful. I went ahead and bought the gloves and saved that.

4:16 p.m.   Bought SLOW and saved the game. I have taken down a party of three madponies, and a party of two ogres. I should be able to win this fight.

4:21 p.m.   Nope, they smoked me. I need another level.

4:32 p.m.   I am 588 points away from Level 9. I am logging off for now.

6:02 p.m.   Logging in.

6:10 p.m.   Level 9. Another Level 2 spell to use, and I purchased DARK and a couple of potions. Let's try it again.

Level 9

6:16 p.m.   Yes!! I don't know if it was Level 9, DARK, or a combination of the two, but the pirates weren't hitting very well at all. I now have the ship.

Arrr, matey! I swindled you out o' your ship!

6:18 p.m.   Hit a shark on the way back to Coneria, but I dispatched it with four shots of LIT. I am at Coneria now, where I will be leveling up on the sea enemies. LIT will make this very easy.

6:26 p.m.   Two oddeyes and six sahags mopped up the floor with me.

Ouch

6:36 p.m.   I have 1000 G. I am going to try to sneak into ElfLand to buy a Copper Bracelet.

6:38 p.m.   Got it. Back to Coneria.

Doubled my Absorb again

6:41 p.m.   Back in Coneria, I bought a SLEP spell and saved it.

6:55 p.m.   Level 10. I am logging out for now.

Level 10

10:32 p.m.   Logging in.

10:41 p.m.   Earned enough money and went down to ElfLand and bought LIT2 and a large dagger. Went back to Coneria and saved.

11:02 p.m.   Level 11. Screenshots of levels are pretty pointless now. I am going to go get a FIR2 spell.

11:05 p.m.   Got back to Coneria and saved. I am logging out for the night.

Friday, May 14, 2004

8:08 p.m.   Logging in.

8:36 p.m.   Level 12. I have also bought HOLD and ICE2.

9:04 p.m.   Level 13. Saved at Coneria.

9:37 p.m.   Leveled up some more and bought supplies. I now have 11 tents, 11 pures and 73 heals. I am logging out for now.

Saturday, May 15, 2004

9:18 a.m.   Logging in.

9:35 a.m.   Level 14. I am just raking in the G, and I can beat anything in the ElfLand area. I'm going to make a test run at the Marsh Cave.

9:37 a.m.   Arrived: Marsh Cave.

Just a test...

9:38 a.m.   Scorpions.

Scorpions are so unfair at this level

9:40 a.m.   Stupid crawl paralyzed me, and two bones, a red bone and the crawl took their sweet time killing me.

Paralysis is deadly...

9:42 a.m.   Zombies and ghouls...what do you think happened?

Paralysis again...

9:45 a.m.   Got to the third floor that time, but a crawl and some bones got me again. I think I can do it if I get lucky enough...

9:47 a.m.   Party of zombies and ghouls, and FIR2 came out first!!

Burn, baby, burn!

9:49 a.m.   Another party of crawl, red bone, and two bones, but I beat them. Arrived at the wizards.

Cross your fingers...

9:50 a.m.   Ouch. Three wizards didn't take long. I want to try it again, though...

I didn't even pose a challenge.

9:54 a.m.   Arrived at the wizards again.

9:57 a.m.   Can you believe it? On the second try I got only two. Both of them struck first and one missed. LIT2 came out and killed one. Next round, LIT2 again, didn't kill him, and he hit me for a lot of damage. Then I tried ICE2. Dead. The CROWN is mine! Now I just have to get out...

Woohoo!

10:02 a.m.   Out. On to ElfLand to save it. Let's see if I have the same luck with Astos...

Marsh Cave is behind me

10:05 a.m.   Restored my magic at ElfLand. On to the Northwest Castle.

10:06 a.m.   Arrived: Northwest Castle. Saving.

You laughed at me? I'll do you for that...

10:07 a.m.   You gotta be kidding me. First round RUB was ineffective, and I decimated him. It wasn't even a challenge. Well, I guess I can get the KEY now...

Freeze!

That was too easy...

10:12 a.m.   In the Matoya Cave area, I hit a party of imps, and did 7 DMG the first round. I can beat the Marsh Cave, but I still can't consistently kill an imp in one hit. That's hilarious!

Hey! Possession alone is a misdemeanor!

Awake? I can't tell the difference...

Oooh...I'm a legend now

Careful...I'm a pyromaniac...

A sword? Who needs 'em? Pah!!

10:28 a.m.   Bought a silver bracelet and FIR3 in Melmond and saved it, and sold all of the other treasure I plundered. The screen of Nerrick said "Drawing failed," so I wasn't able to get it. I am going to get Level 15 and I am going to quit for now.

Knock yourself out

Pretty good defense

10:31 a.m.   Level 15. I saved it at Melmond. I didn't say this before, but the silver knife brings my Hit % above 32, therefore allowing double-hits. I am quitting for now.

A decent weapon!

1:46 p.m.   Logging in. Just noticed that it wasn't just my screenshots that were messed up, but my savestates, too. I am forced to go back to right before going to Matoya's Cave. I hate it, but at least I didn't lose the Marsh Cave. I won't record anything more until I return to where I last recorded a log entry.

2:15 p.m.   Back to Level 15. I realized that I didn't clear out the TOF key rooms in the first time through, so I did this time. As a result, I ended up getting Level 15 before getting to Melmond, and I had enough G to buy FIR3 and SLO2. I also grabbed the screenshot for Nerrick, and for the TNT, which I realized I was also missing. I went back and inserted them at the appropriate places.

2:35 p.m.   Went up to the PNOP and defeated a party of four frost wolves.

Not bad for an easy fight

Almost got 'em, but not quite

Hey! Pick on somebody your own size!

2:40 p.m.   Took down a tyro!! HOLD spell works very well against him. I paralyzed right at the beginning of the fight, and then I emptied my spell racks (ICE, FIR2, ICE2) on him. He never recovered. 3,387 EXP, baby!! Of course, I am out of magic, so I have to return to Pravoka now.

Now that's what I'm talking about...

2:48 p.m.   Wolves and grey wolves are running away from me.

2:51 p.m.   Level 16.

2:51 p.m.   Level 17.

3:11 p.m.   Why haven't I been using FIR3?! What an idiot!

3:19 p.m.   Level 18. I think I am going to try the Earth Cave.

3:26 p.m.   Arrived: Earth Cave.

3:31 p.m.   Wizards got me.

3:34 p.m.   Beat the vampire in one hit. Got the RUBY.

That's about to change...

Looks pretty valuable...I wonder if I could sell it?

3:41 p.m.   Wizards!!

3:47 p.m.   On the third floor, a coctrice stoned me on the first hit. Don't have enough time to try again. I am logging off for now.

Too much cocaine...

Sunday, May 16, 2004

1:41 p.m.   Logging in.

1:54 p.m.   Killed the vampire with one shot of FIR3.

1:57 p.m.   Level 19.

1:58 p.m.   I HATE WIZARDS!!!

2:01 p.m.   Wizards again. I pound into oblivion practically everything else here. Why do they have to have wizards here?!!

2:08 p.m.   Coctrices. One of the other things I can't beat in here.

2:11 p.m.   Three spectres and two geists made anything but short work of me.

Did I say I hate paralysis?

2:15 p.m.   Wizards. It would take a lot of levels to counter this. I just have to have a lucky run-through.

2:23 p.m.   Two trolls got to come out first. All the luck is going against me here.

2:30 p.m.   Images are in here, too? I thought I didn't hit them until the second time! A couple more tries, then I'm going to level up and get a LIT3 at Crescent Lake.

2:37 p.m.   Vampire goes down in one hit again.

2:39 p.m.   Geists and spectres.

2:45 p.m.   Two spectres and two geists killed me from max. I am getting a LIT3 and another level.

2:52 p.m.   Arrived: Crescent Lake.

2:56 p.m.   Level 19 (again). Also bought LIT3. I'm going to make another run at the Earth Cave.

3:06 p.m.   I was doing great, using LIT3 on any wizards I saw. Then FIR3 didn't kill the vampire in one hit, and he killed me.

3:14 p.m.   One shot of FIR3 killed the Vampire.

3:20 p.m.   Made it out! Saving...

3:27 p.m.   Level 20.

3:27 p.m.   Picked up the ROD.

Oh yeah...got the crowbar

3:31 p.m.   Restored magic at Melmond and saved outside Earth Cave.

3:37 p.m.   Lucky wizard survived the LIT3 and got a critical hit on me the next round before I could kill him.

3:42 p.m.   Spectres and geists.

3:47 p.m.   Removed stone plate.

What's under here? Smells kinda musty...

3:51 p.m.   Killed by images twenty steps from Lich.

3:58 p.m.   Arrived at Lich. We'll see how this goes...

4:00 p.m.   Oh yeah. Lich is dead.

You like that? Want a little more?

One orb lit

4:15 p.m.   A pede ran away from me.

4:18 p.m.   Got the canoe.

4:33 p.m.   Replenished my potions. Level 21. Saved at ElfLand, about to make a run toward Ordeal.

4:37 p.m.   Saved it outside Ordeal. I am quitting for now.

9:41 p.m.   Logging in.

Hope this isn't TOO much of an ordeal

9:43 p.m.   First step in enemy-infested territory got me in a fight with four medusas, who stoned me.

Losers

9:53 p.m.   Was doing good, then the nitemares killed me.

9:54 p.m.   Five medusas struck first, three used GLANCE, and I ran away the next battle after another GLANCE. Talk about luck...

9:57 p.m.   You can run from the mudgol.

9:59 p.m.   Ran from three mancats.

10:00 p.m.   Stinking nitemares.

10:11 p.m.   Got the heal staff, then two sorcerers got me.

I hate sorcerers

10:16 p.m.   Seven red goyles and their FIR2 killed me.

10:18 p.m.   Seven mummies and a WzMummy got to strike first and killed me.

Go ahead! Strike first! Losers

10:20 p.m.   Medusas again.

10:23 p.m.   Five sorcerers?!

You gotta be kidding me!

10:24 p.m.   Three zombulls barely killed me.

10:27 p.m.   Five sorcerers again. I remember having problems in this place, but not near this many sorcerer and medusa fights.

10:34 p.m.   Sorcerers, mummies, medusas, in that order. Three more futile attempts.

10:39 p.m.   Red goyles, nitemares, zombulls.

10:47 p.m.   Got the TAIL. Here come the Zombie Dragons...

Very nice

Eww! Gross!!

10:48 p.m.   Do my eyes deceive me? I am out!!

I survived?!

Yay!!

10:51 p.m.   Saved it at Melmond. I am logging out for now.

Tuesday, May 18, 2004

9:26 p.m.   Logging in.

9:37 p.m.   Saved it outside the Ice Cave. Let's give it a shot.

9:39 p.m.   Five wraiths wiped me out.

Paralysis and large hits...at least it wasn't slow

9:41 p.m.   Coctrices and mummies.

You're almost as bad as sorcerers

9:43 p.m.   I have never had so much difficulty with undead!

9:47 p.m.   Ran away from two sorcerers.

9:48 p.m.   Undead again.

9:50 p.m.   Coctrices. I'd forgotten how hard this place is!!

9:52 p.m.   Ran away from three sorcerers.

9:55 p.m.   Survived the spiked square. I'm not even going to attempt the Frost Dragons.

9:57 p.m.   Three sorcerers did me in.

Speak of the devil...

10:00 p.m.   Three mages struck first, two rubs were ineffective, and I ran away.

See ya!

10:02 p.m.   Undead again.

10:06 p.m.   And again.

10:12 p.m.   Yet again.

Just wanted to give credit to the Zeus Gauntlet

10:16 p.m.   Frost giant and a frost wolf. Wolf did FROST right off the bat, and the giant struck. I tried to run and was unsuccessful.

10:30 p.m.   Two frost dragons. Need I say more? I think I can make it, though it may take a few more tries. I am quitting for now.

Umm...yeah. No chance.

2:21 p.m.   Logging in.

2:34 p.m.   One sorcerer got lucky.

2:55 p.m.   After several run-ins with mostly undead, I finally got past the spiked square.

2:56 p.m.   Spoke to soon. Another lucky ONE sorcerer.

3:04 p.m.   Ran away from two frost dragons.

3:06 p.m.   Survived spike square.

3:07 p.m.   Two sorcerers.

3:32 p.m.   About a dozen more tries. Still unsuccessful. However, I doubt leveling up is going to help me that much. I will try a few more times and then maybe start leveling up. Right now, though, I am logging out.

5:18 p.m.   Logging in.

5:51 p.m.   After several futile attempts, I made it past the spiked square again.

5:54 p.m.   Made it to the floor with the ice shield, and was killed by undead. I think I am going to get a few levels and come back.

6:09 p.m.   Level 23.

6:19 p.m.   Saved it at Crescent Lake, which is where I am leveling up. I am quitting for now.

12:08 a.m.   Logging in. I am going to level up for a bit before going to bed.

12:24 a.m.   Level 24.

12:45 a.m.   Level 25. I will attempt the Ice Cave again tomorrow.

Wednesday, May 19, 2004

6:12 p.m.   Logging in.

6:17 p.m.   Arrived: Ice Cave.

6:22 p.m.   Three mages. Coctrices are running away.

6:25 p.m.   Undead. Wizards are running away. It almost seems HARDER three levels higher.

6:29 p.m.   Survived spiked square.

6:30 p.m.   Two sorcerers.

6:34 p.m.   Survived spiked square.

6:37 p.m.   Killed by six wraiths.

6:41 p.m.   Killed on the spiked square.

6:53 p.m.   Killed on the spiked square.

7:06 p.m.   After several unsuccessful attempts, I made it past the spiked square.

7:10 p.m.   uioahiyspxcbiovubhsoierhypjw890!!! Sorcerers.

7:27 p.m.   Made it to the Eye.

7:28 p.m.   XXXX right off the bat.

He made it look VERY easy

7:34 p.m.   Made it again.

7:35 p.m.   XXXX again. I'm going to get more levels. I am logging off for now.

Friday, May 21, 2004

7:18 p.m.   Logging in. I am going to try the Ice Cave a few more times, and then I will level up to Level 30 if I am not successful.

7:33 p.m.   Survived spiked square, then immediately killed by a mage.

7:39 p.m.   Five trips in which I didn't even make it to the spiked square. I finally made it to one and beat it, then I was killed by three wraiths. It's back to Crescent Lake for levelling up. But first, I need a shower. Be right back.

9:10 p.m.   Had some other errands to run, but I am back.

9:27 p.m.   Level 26. Saved at Crescent Lake.

9:54 p.m.   Level 27.

10:17 p.m.   Level 28. I am now above the recommended level for beating the game with a normal party (27). You'd think I could beat the Ice Cave now. I am logging out.

Sunday, May 23, 2004

10:01 p.m.   Logging in. I am going to attempt the Ice Cave again.

10:11 p.m.   Survived the spiked square. No problems yet...

10:13 p.m.   Eye killed me.

10:21 p.m.   Ditto.

10:28 p.m.   The eye. Nothing else in here is killing me. I've only been paralyzed once in all of my previous trips.

10:42 p.m.   I beat him! GLANCE ineffective first round, and then I came out first the next round and finished him off. How I just have to get out.

All that work for this little rock...

10:48 p.m.   Made it out. Got paralyzed and almost died, but managed to get a FIR3 out just in time.

11:00 p.m.   Got the airship and the class change. Saved at Coneria.

Oh yeah!

Hey! I have blond hair?

11:03 p.m.   Level 29.

11:36 p.m.   Level 30 in the Mermaid Shrine. I have also been to the waterfall.

Looks strangely complex...

Sweet! I can breathe underwater!

I get to ride the submarine!

11:49 p.m.   Got the SLAB and saved at Onrac, then talked to Dr. Unne and saved it at Coneria.

I have never learned an entire language so quickly!

12:05 p.m.   Defeated Kary.

It ain't my fault you didn't take your sleeping pill!

You're going down!

Second orb lit

12:14 p.m.   Level 31. Restored heals and saved at Coneria. I am quitting for now.

My current magic spells

Monday, May 24, 2004

10:30 a.m.   Logging in. I will get the CHIME, and at least attempt the Mirage Tower.

10:47 a.m.   Got the CHIME and bought NUKE. Saved at Coneria.

Only person I bother talking to

Mwahahahaha! Fear my wrath!!

10:53 a.m.   Realized I forgot to buy a CatClaw, so I did.

Best weapon before the Masamune!

10:54 a.m.   Wow! I didn't save it before going to the Mirage Tower, and four ankylos toasted me in the desert.

Have to save before crossing the desert

11:01 a.m.   Cleared out first floor of Mirage Tower, warped out, and saved it. Now for the second floor.

11:04 a.m.   Level 32.

11:08 a.m.   Cleared out second floor. I am going to sell the excess equipment and come back.

11:18 a.m.   Defeated the blue dragon.

11:19 a.m.   Five badmans (badmen?) knocked me out before I could use Defense.

11:25 a.m.   Tripod is giving me problems. I have to log out for now.

2:41 p.m.   Logging in.

3:04 p.m.   Level 33.

3:06 p.m.   Got the protective cape and got out.

3:14 p.m.   Saved at Coneria. Bought STOP and ZAP! at Gaia. Bought SABR at Onrac and saved it there. Ready to go after Kraken.

3:27 p.m.   Level 34.

3:32 p.m.   Defeated Kraken. Saved at Onrac.

You kinda sound like Jabba the Hut...

You even look like him!

And you smell like him when you're dead!

3:36 p.m.   Saved outside Mirage Tower. I am quitting for now.

Tuesday, May 25, 2004

11:00 p.m.   Logging in.

11:06 p.m.   Done in by the blue dragon.

11:10 p.m.   Blue dragon did 267 DMG!! I had been weakened a bit, so it killed me.

11:15 p.m.   Blue dragon again. I have to use a NUKE on him.

11:22 p.m.   Level 35. I am in the Floating Castle.

11:24 p.m.   On the floor below Tiamit, I encountered and defeated a fighter. I didn't know you could face those in here.

11:29 p.m.   Arrived at Tiamit. I didn't hit the WarMech, thankfully.

11:32 p.m.   I beat him! Restored the power to the fourth and final orb, and warped out. Saved it right outside. I got it on the first try!

We'll just see about that!

You against me...who will die first?

Ha ha! You did!

11:38 p.m.   Didn't get hit in the desert. Flew back to Coneria, refilled my potions, and saved it. Then I flew up to the Temple of Fiends and saved it in the airship hovering over the TOF. I am going to go in and get Level 36, possibly Level 37. I won't try for the masamune just yet.

11:42 p.m.   Level 36.

11:44 p.m.   Got too greedy. Four gas dragons wiped me out.

11:47 p.m.   Two worms gave me enough, five steps in. I am going to warp out and come back in, since I am not in that far.

11:51 p.m.   Talk about a one in a million shot. A mage's RUB worked on me, even with a protective ring AND a protective cape.

Still getting over this one...

11:55 p.m.   I would have beaten two gas dragons, but one got a critical hit and did 207 DMG.

11:58 p.m.   Defeated four gas dragons (used three NUKE spells), receiving over 16,000 EXP. I exited and saved at Coneria.

Oh yeah!

12:04 a.m.   Level 37. Refilled potions and saved at Coneria. I will make a run at the masamune tomorrow. I am quitting for tonight.

My current (and final) spells

Monday, June 14, 2004

1:50 p.m.   Yes, I know I haven't played this in about three weeks. I just had to take a break from it (though I know I am so close to beating it). I finished the game I had on Final Fantasy X, and have started another season on Madden 2004 with my Broncos (yeah, baby). For all of you who are keeping up with this, I am sorry. I just wrote this to let you know that I am planning to play some more on it tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned.

8:06 p.m.   Logging in.

8:56 p.m.   After several unsuccessful attempts to make it past the gas dragon floor, I have decided to level up until my HP is over 400.

What were the odds?

Monday, June 21, 2004

6:58 p.m.   Logging in.

7:07 p.m.   It happened again. I figured out why, though. It was because he cast XFER on me first. I haven't had a problem with him until now...

7:13 p.m.   Made it that time. Used a NUKE, though.

7:27 p.m.   Done in by four earths.

7:35 p.m.   Past the evil gate. Beat the phantom without using a NUKE.

7:36 p.m.   Frost wolves and frost giants got critical hits.

7:44 p.m.   Past the evil gate. Phantom gave me no problems.

7:48 p.m.   Zombie dragons pierced the triple-defense shield.

7:53 p.m.   Past the evil gate. Phantom didn't even damage me.

7:57 p.m.   Level 42.

8:00 p.m.   Lich didn't even do NUKE until he was almost dead, and then it did 270 DMG and didn't kill me. Ready for the fire floor...

8:14 p.m.   Kary was a cinch.

8:21 p.m.   Level 43 right before Kraken.

8:23 p.m.   Beat him! He did LIT2 for the first four rounds, and I was able to get my triple-defense shield up. He got one hit in later, but it didn't kill me. I am now on the masamune floor. I am going to run from everything I can (as I have already been doing).

8:26 p.m.   Six sorcerers challenged me six steps away, and my life flashed before my eyes, but I was able to run away. I have the masamune!!

The fruit of my labors!

8:33 p.m.   Got out. If I walk across the short floor right before the gas dragons, eight WARPS will do the rest. I restored all of my heal potions, sold my Cat Claw, and saved at Coneria. I'll level up to 50 before attempting Chaos.

8:40 p.m.   Level 44.

8:48 p.m.   Level 45.

8:53 p.m.   Level 46.

Level 50

Tuesday, June 22, 2004

12:51 p.m.   Logging in.

12:56 p.m.   Killed the phantom in one hit.

1:05 p.m.   Masamune killed Lich in three hits, but he did get a shot of NUKE in for 294 DMG.

1:22 p.m.   Got my triple-Defense shield up before Kraken hit me. He went down easily. I forgot to report Kary, but she obviously wasn't a problem.

1:26 p.m.   Got to Tiamit.

1:29 p.m.   FAST and the masamune made Tiamit go quickly.

1:31 p.m.   Ready for Chaos...

Remember me? Blah, blah, blah...

Blah, blah, blah...

Blah, blah, blah...doom!

Here goes...cross your fingers!

1:38 p.m.   Oh yeah! Lady luck was with me on the first trek through! She must have felt sorry for me after all of those tries at the masamune. CHAOS IS DEAD!!!!! I decided to go the NUKE route. I had all nine of my NUKEs, and I put up my triple-Defense shield, and then cast all nine of my NUKEs. I ran out, and then started wailing on him with the masamune. He cast CUR4 when I had only done about 200 DMG to him (I don't know why?!) and didn't cast it later. But it worked!!

I'm melting! Melting!
