How My Adventure Began: The Story of a Noob

I have been adventuring in Vana'diel since it came out for Xbox 360. I started in San d'Oria as a Warrior, where I slowly grew in level with the help of my boyfriend. At level 13, he had to return to Jeuno so he could level up himself. Handing me a Flame Claymore (which I still carry today), he wished me luck and set off for Jeuno on a chocobo, promising to return whenever I needed his help. I skilled my Great Sword as I soloed, forsaking parties due to stubbornness and stupidity.

My boyfriend returned to aid me in getting my support job items since I had not partied and had none. We quickly got the Crab Apron and Damselfly Worm, though I could not resist to explore in Gusgen Mines and ended up dying twice. We did however get the skull, and he cleared a path to the exit so I would not die again. I still am grateful he put up with my noobiness back then...

After I had my support job (monk) leveled, I finally forced myself to join a party. This first experience almost caused me to quit the game. I arrived at the Outpost in Valkurm Dunes, where I was asked to tank. I provoked the mob as they told me, but the other players must have been new as well because they screamed at me to "VOKE" every 10 seconds. I died because the White Mage did not cure me, and he said "You died because you weren't voking." The leader said "Hey let's not attack anyone. Though I am just kidding when I say that," and booted me from the party. I was confused and angry because they were all treating me like crap for doing exactly what they asked me to do. A kind red mage passing by the Outpost stopped to raise me, and I was able to leave the dunes without aggro.

Shortly after I was booted from that party, another new Warrior invited me to a party. Reluctantly, I accepted, but this too was a mistake. He took me and a Thief to Jugner Forest without a healer, where I died again as the Thief fled. Now, I do not easily give up, but these two experiences made me think the game was full of assholes and dumb people. I told my boyfriend I was going to quit and he asked me why. When I told him what happened he became angry and insisted that I had been invited to bad parties, and that not all players were like that. He even asked the names of the people who had treated me that way but I did not give them since the damage had already been done and yelling at them wouldn't give me a better gaming experience.

He told me to get to level 20 so he could get me to Jeuno, acquire a chocobo license, and level with his Paladin, which was also level 20. Though he had always tried to get me to join parties, he told me I should solo till we could party together. "We'll always party together from now on."

By level 30, I had gained party experience with my boyfriend, my Kazham Keys, and Thief sub, opposed to Monk. Still, I used Great Sword over other weapons, the "right" weapons for Warrior. This stubbornness followed me all the way to 75, in which I was using Ground Strike with a Martial Sword. On the way to 75 I had gotten myself and my boyfriend booted from several elitist parties. While annoying, this didn't persuade me to skill up Axe or Great Axe. I still wield the Great Sword with pride, though I do get ridiculed at times.

Long Story Short: About Me

  • I have used Great Swords from level 13 Warrior all the way to 75.
  • My main job is Dark Knight and my main craft is Alchemy.
  • I have a penchant for chocobo raising and racing.
  • I don't hold grudges but I do lose respect for annoying and/or rude players. If I had to name the #1 thing about people that drives me nuts, it's arrogance (irony, since I am an Elvaan XD)
  • My priorities in game are storyline (quests and missions) > leveling > gear.
  • People know me as Z, Zat, or Zati; I am a goofy person who doesn't forget this is a game like some do.
  • I attempt to solo notorious monsters for fun. That is, as long as there isn't a huge group waiting on me XP
  • I enjoy helping other players out and making new friends. If you reside on (Asura) Pandemonium, drop a tell sometime. I don't bite too hard.
