Tykkaru – FFXI

Quick Update

Posted in Uncategorized by Tony on April 15, 2009

Real Life

Think I’m between A-B in Organic Chemistry II, so I’m pretty happy there. Taking Molecular Chemistry, and I’m not doing much productive…

Think for the exam I’m going to plan to divide it into two ways to study: 1) Theory 2) Problem Solving, which is the logical way to do it since the exam is just those two parts (problem solving allows you to use the course book as well!).

Daniel is coming home from Australia! I was so happy about it that I cried.


Ah yes, a lot has happened in FFXI. I’m still in zEUs, I’m quite happy. Wish to be come to event as another job as Bard, but as it is a requirement and I think I’m one of the better BRDs in the LS I’m on BRD duty. I’ve been in this LS for a year now and I think that I can count on one hand the numbers of times I’ve not come as BRD…

Finished with SCH relic as well! 5/5! Need to get the belt to drop, but it’s kind of a low drop rate, so… Raisen got his SCH to 75, so now we’re 3 SCH! We’re going to become such an enlightened force to be reckoned with!

A Crystalline Prophecy was released too! I won the second time. I chose the Redingote with M.acc +4 and M.atk +4! ffxi_20090415_082230

I’m sorry to say this though: Redingote only looks cute on Tarutarus! I think that Tykkaru is cuter than ever! ❤


New course, new failure.

Posted in Uncategorized by Tony on January 21, 2009

So, I kind of almost failed my last course, Mass spectrometry. I don’t even know what happened. Was totally kerplunked by the whole thing. I kind of feel like a failure right now… Robin was the top of the class, I got the lowest score in the class. *sigh* There went that fantasy…

I’m taking the C-course in Organic Chemistry right now, hopefully it will go better, if not, I don’t know what I should/will do with myself. It’s kind of tragic that the past year, all my grades has plummeted… 😦

So yeah, I’m kind of sad/in a bad mood right now.

Real life stuff, not so much in-game stuff…

Posted in Uncategorized by Tony on December 17, 2008

Went to see Happy-Go-Lucky with Martin last night, he’s a good friend, I’ve finally understood that, we’re nothing more than friends, which is good, since in the dark, ambient movie settings, I could actually make out his wrinkles, and he kind of looked old…

The movie was great, had an infectious laughter, but I’d rather watched something else, what upset me was the taxi driver, his cynicism really upset and put me in a bad mood. I felt sorry for him. :/

I’m still thinking of leaving zEUs, but still haven’t found the right moment to tell them yet… it feels like I’m betraying them somehow, which is not the way to go. I’d miss so many people as well… all the tarus in the LS I’ve kind of bonded with… well, that’s probably it…

Merged RL with FFXI blog!

Beginner Level
____ Can say “I love you”
____ Isn’t hiding another boyfriend.
____ Thinks kissing is sexy

Has a glowy smile

Is at least marginally sensitive

Will probably remember my name the next morning
Intermediate Level
____ Can say “I love you” without my saying it first
____ Likes me enough to tell me I’m special

Trusts me enough to tell me I’m wrong

____ Lets me have a time-off when I need it.

I like him so much, a lot really, but I don’t know what to do? Some say that I should take the initiative and talk to him? But I’m not someone like that, but on the other hand, what do I have to lose? Except maybe my dignity? And self respect? *sigh*

A friend sent me a quote today from The Sandman…

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up a whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…

You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ or ‘how very perceptive’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.

It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love.”
– The character “Rose Walker” in The Sandman


FFXI update?

Oh right, I’m pretty much getting bored with it. Not much happening, thinking of returning to Phoenix. But I don’t know how to break it out for the linkshell, they recently funded me a Jubbah, and I haven’t really been active enough to think that I’ve compensated for it, and I don’t want to leave it on bad terms. :/

I think two new updates has been since I was on. SCH merit category 1 and 2. I don’t really know what to say about them, they don’t seem that good to be honest – the Relic for SCH body looks pretty nice though. Enhanced Sublimation? 😮


Keryu lent me his new tuxedo. I think I look super charming in it! 🙂

RNG Madness!

Posted in Uncategorized by Tony on September 16, 2008

So Tykkaru’s currently levelling the awesome-wawsomeness of RNG.

Currently with loaned gear he’s doing around 200 dmg/arrow against Colibris and 1000+ dmg Sidewinder (or Misswinder) along with 600-900 dmg Barrages Tykkaru seems to be pulling hate quite often. Now Tykkaru doesn’t have a lot of HP, at the best he has around 650 HP. So what should he do? Paladins rarely cover him nowadays, so he just waits until the mob is 30% and he kills them off with a Sidewinder.

Tykkaru’s now level 58 as well. That level 57 was from an earlier party. ^-^

Maintenance is happening right now, after the maintenance Tykkaru’s going to get his AF bow, finally being full moon during a reasonable time of day as well as joining zEUs in Dynamis-Qufim!

Tykkaru’s stats

Posted in Uncategorized by Tony on September 16, 2008

Tykkaru is my Tarutaru in FFXI. Was one of the first members and the first Bard to join the prestigeous and awesome-wawsomely cool EU HNMLS Finale. Now he’s on Midgardsormr and playing with the EU HNMLS zEUs.

Tykkaru usually plays on BRD, below follows some of his gear and stats.

Just not a lot of gil at the moment. He’s 6/12 on Imperial Wootz Ingots!
