While Sorakirei is my POL handle and usual forum handle Treasa is my main character on Midgardsormr.


  • Curse The Yagudo: Main linkshell, mostly social and contains skilled and helpful people.
  • MidgardsormrLJ (shell): This linkshell was originally created for social events organized via the Livejournal community. It eventually became the linkshell used for a weekly static.
  • EternalSunshine (shell): currently collecting dust in storage
  • Shikigami Weapon: Summoner centric linkshell

Level Grind


Treasa is focused on leveling up these jobs

All other jobs will be leveled as needed or for fun.


Treasa is very proud to be part of the following EXP statics


Artifact Armor

Treasa acquired the following sets

Relic Armor

Working on the following

  • Paladin: 5/6 (missing CoP Cape)
  • Summoner: 4/5 (CURSE YOU BASTOK!)

I'm cursed when it comes to Bastok. SMN hands rain when I'm not there and don't show up when I'm present.

Wish Lists

There is certain gear in this game that is just too good to pass up but trying to get it is quite difficult if you don't know the right people.


Maat Fight

My level 69 Paladin faced off against Maat on Saturday, June 9th, 2007.

Gear Worn
Battle Summary

I forgot to use the Blink Band. I also didn't end up using Sentinal, Rampart, Shield Bash or Holy. Looking back I realize I made a number of mistakes. Two of my Swift Blades did not hit. I have no idea why the first one, after using all those sleeping potions, didn't work. Though the other missed one was during Maat's Invincible which I totally didn't see in the log. Goes to show you how focused I was on everything else.

Name Home Base About the name
Riskysafety San d'Oria Named after an Anime Series

Brisby Jeuno Named after Mrs. Brisby of N.I.M.H fame
Eightyfour San d'Oria Named after 84 Lumber, for she is my woodworking supplies mule

Chocobo Raising

The addition of Chocobo Raising was super exciting. Having the option of calling a chocobo from just about anywhere to safely ride through aggro areas still is one of the greatest things in the game. While I'm not the best Chocobo breeder, I'm doing what I can to get a RED one, and learning proper raising techniques as I go.

The June 2007 update finally provided Chocobo breeders with somethings we've needed for a LOOOOOOOONG time! First is an option to skip the cut scenes, wonderful for those of us who occasionally neglect our birds or were away. Second is an option to provide more than one piece of feed at a time.

FYI Lost Chick is the name of the lost chocobo quest that I always forget and take forever to look up.

Gallant Hope

GH was my first chocobo. She was born a few months after Chocobo Raising was added to the game. While I tried to treat her well eventually neglect set in thus I had to sit through 30+ minutes of chocobo update cutscenes one afternoon. /sigh At least I finally had a chocobo to call in the wild. She was slow, but did her job well of keeping me safe in scary areas.

  • Stats
    • Sex: Female
    • Color: Yellow
    • Other stats: Nothing of note, I was too new to raising

Transient Hope

TH was attempt number 2. TH is the daughter of Winter Storm Red Male (Owner: Cydori) and Gallant Hope.

    • Sex: Female
    • Color: Yellow
    • Strength: Outstanding
    • Endurance: Better than average
    • Ability: Bore

Scarlet Hope

Scarlet Hope is the daughter of Winter Storm Red Male (Owner: Cydori) and ? Red Female (Owner: Nimbex). This egg was traded to a trainer around 1:50am Thursday, June 21st. Scarlet was retired on day 65.

Lessons Learned

As one spends time in Vana'diel, you can learn quite a number of things of use and maybe not so much. Here are a few things I have learned in my travels.

  • Status of a BCNM orb: Every wonder if that orb in your inventory is cracked or still good? Trade it to Shami in Port Jeuno. If it's cracked he'll take it. If it's still good he'll remind you where you can use it. (Tested: 11-27-05)
  • Blazing Peppers: Used in the quest Let Sleeping Dogs Lie. These babies can be purchased at the AH, but if you want to save some gil head up to (E-5) of Pashhow Marshlands. Trade your sickle to a ??? and you may harvest up some Blazing Peppers.

Special Acknowledgments

My occasional quests for furnishings and other special items require the services of skilled crafters. I would like to thank anyone who has ever made anything for me. The following is no where near a full list, but it's a start.

  • Xyjah: Red Hobby Bo, a new chocobo rocking horse furnishing.
  • Heimdall: Palmer's Bangles, Gilfinder enchantement
  • Eadwyn: For my first aquarium.
  • Genjuro, Dilvias, and Izzitda: For their alchemical skills that contributed to the aquariums
  • Semitry: For the majority of my aquariums.
Many thanks to the Shikigami Weapon linkshell for helping me to finally get a Yinyang Robe of my own on 03-03-08.
