I write this with extreme frustration, we have been battling her now for a few days, and although a few of us have entered her and survived alone, as a guild we don’t have the stamina. Yes of course I refer to Garuda extreme! But the end is in sight, she was brought down to a whisker of health after 5 hours of going toe to toe. I sense her worry, how she hopes that on one of our wipes, we will rage so hard the PC will go out the window (good job I have a ps4 as backup). I miss those early easier fights now!
My initial thoughts on the final effort, as Garuda’s and her sisters were gang banging us from one whirlwind to another, was one of anger, of despair, of helplessness. But upon awakening a mere 3 hours later to catch the train to work, I realized how far we had come. We had 2 groups running last night! We have 15 people online at any given time, we have around 35 separate players that have logged in during the past week. A couple of nights ago I was online till 5am and there were still 5/6 of us online grouping up. Everyone is getting on, FC chat has me curling up with laughter at times, and mumbles even more so. Even Garuro is starting to be funny!
In the last few news posts I’ve individually named all the new members but there has been so many it would look like the end credits of the movie Ghandi! But I hope you are all enjoying your time here. I also welcome back Jokar who recently made a return. Our thoughts are with you and your family my friend. We look forward to grouping with you again.
I’d like to thank new and old members too for the maturity shown in the past month or so when there was some mild disruption on the forums. Thankfully that’s has moved onto another dawn, and we can be eternally grateful. I think it bypassed most members of the Final Fantasy section anyway! The games too good to bother with such rubbish!
We seem to be running something every night right now, but official guild runs have fallen on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. Keep an eye out on the forum calendar and FFXIV section of the forums to have the best chance of joining. We will always try to be fair but unfortunately there will be always those who may miss out. Remember anybody here no matter how long you have been in the Free Company are very much welcome to arrange your own events, or speak to one of the Elders to arrange it for you! On that note I’ll close by saying welcome to Kiba and Rozus who have both been given elder status due to the fact that they have really helped out with arranging events and with our free company house. That way they are now roped into keeping the effort up even if they don’t want to!
I finish with a picture of me in a chimney. Why not.
