So the day before the update we get our last teaser and I think it's probably the most exciting one so far. I'm probably being a bit unfair to the Empyrean Armor and new spells, but that's because we don't know... anything about either yet. Let's take a look.
Flat Shields. Something decent that's Rare/Ex would be cool too.
For some reason I'm guessing that the fish will be from Abyssea. Which is both good and bad in that it means if I want to fish there I can't EXP too (or not as much anyway).
In unrelated Fishing news I'm now 0/271 on Gugrusaurus for my Ebisu Rod. /sigh
A teleport NPC is sooo nice to have around as well. I'm sure people will still take half an hour to cash in merits and come back, but at least then they won't be able to claim it's because it's a long walk. It'll be the undeniable retarded emanating from them.
I'm looking forward to the "big day" tomorrow. I've got my five Magian Weapons (Indra's & Varuna's Staves, Taipain Claws, Sekka, and Uzura all with me. I'm logged by the Ru'Lude Gardens AH for quick buying up of anything that becomes a hot commodity (hopefully). And I'm nearish to Maat so I can hopefully do the limit break quest quickly and start getting jobs to 85. See ya then!
UPDATE: I didn't notice it, but "Thursday, September 8th"? Day/date fail, indeed!
