Running with the Guild

I’ve been running some events with my guild ViP when I can fit the time in (and when the internet works, which is sporadic at best) and we recently completed a bunch of meta in the latest saga that ArenaNet released. I loved every second of it – minus the final battle because the rewards were few and the fights took forever. I had a much nicer time in the ramp up events. Still, it was achievements and fun times all around. It seems like there’s always something going on, and I really like that.

Going After Warclaw

Me and my husband have been back playing GW2 – and it feels great. We’ve been working on unlocking the roller beetle, and are on the final steps of a collection required to obtain it. In the meantime, I’ve been working towards my Warclaw mount. I have completed the collection aside from the track reward, so once I’m done a bit more PvP I will hopefully get to unlock that, too.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


I love the creativity of people.


I FINALLY managed to get Herta completed – a collection that will let me use up some crafting items that otherwise seem to just stack forever in my bank going unused. It was a great feeling, and I can’t wait to move on to the next collection.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

May Gaming Goals – 2021

Gaming has taken a bit of a back seat this month as I delved into Animal Crossing, but that’s OK.


  • Did not finish four floors at Quail Plaza. DID do a lot of pillaging to make this goal easier, though. Now I just need to find the time.
  • Did not complete any older games in my steam library. Did play a lot of new-ish-to-me games though!
  • Did not continue the next chapter in Divinity.


  • Reach 80 in another class in FFXIV – I got to 80 in botanist, and I am 76 in Bard which is pretty dang close to 80.

May Goals:

  • Continue Divinity Original Sin II with the husband
  • Reach 80 Bard in FFXIV
  • Reach 80 in a craft profession in FFXIV
  • Re-establish what I was doing in GW2 and see if it’s possible to fit that into my schedule
  • Build 4th floor at Quail Plaza
  • Complete 1 room or section in Animal Crossing on my island (complete is used loosely here, I know designs are never truly complete).

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Mood Lighting

I’ve been working on setting up my house in Animal Crossing – and I finally have at least one room not looking too shabby now! I have a little poetry corner set up, complete with mood lighting and of course rain.

Custom Designs

I downloaded this neat illusion design for my work area in Animal Crossing, and I love it so much!

Thanks Diana

Some times my villagers are pretty blunt.. This is Diana commenting on my eye because I was stung by a wasp. I’ve since learned exactly how to avoid those obnoxious critters. If you get your net out, and shake the trees while standing directly in front of them, all you need to do is spam the ‘A’ key and you’ll catch them every time. No more swollen eyes for me!

Pillaging? Don’t Mind if I Do

Just a few of the items I ended up pillaging on my last run through Novus on the Sklotopolis server.

Pillaging Galore

I was finally able to pillage one of the best sites I have come across in a long time. My neighbour over on Novus had been inactive since I moved there, and eventually their place was disbanded for being inactive. There were a bunch of buildings left up, so I deeded alongside of them to speed up the decay process. Then I waited. It took roughly two weeks for the 40ql stone buildings to decay enough for the ‘clean up’ option to show, but I was able to pillage the site, and I kept a steady eye on it via my laptop because there were two others in the area who were also trying to pillage it.

What I found was an incredible amount of building material (which is fantastic for me, as I continue to build up my plaza and I hate making those items) and some pretty rare items along side. I found a blue tome (sorcery item) which I gave to Moumix (I already have a blood of the angels that I never remember to use, I don’t need multiple items), I found a bunch of unique bloods which I split as well – and then, a day later because I didn’t even realize they were hidden in a satchel, I found two rare bones.

Rare bones allow you to turn items in your inventory rare (one use) so I promptly used it on my seryll pickaxe. I’ve never actually found a bone on my own (you can find them rarely in treasure chests scattered along the land, or win one in a unique slaying, or even find them digging). Tons of steel tools, weapons, armor, and all of it high quality to boot. It was definatly a pillage that I will remember for a while. After I hauled all of the supplies back to my deed, I decided to take them back to Liberty, which is where I spend most of my time. I am not really good at splitting my time between servers, so once I remove everything from the deed on Novus I’m going to disband it and just focus on one server. Less stress for me that way.

As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
