Another FFXI Blog

Welcome to my world.
Recently I've been sitting at home after the long eight hour days I put into my choice of current occupation doing nothing but play a computer game where all I seem to do is sit around. This game I refer to is Final Fantasy XI, or FFXI.

Why do I start this blog, even though it seems I do nothing of interest to anyone? One answer, I was bored, and my friends have blogs. Will I keep up with this? Who knows, maybe I will, maybe I wont, only time will tell and we'll just have to see where this takes me. Possibly I'll talk about my sitting spots, and possibly go on to tell tales of my grand adventures as I watch others stroll by as they look busy.

If you frequent the server of Cerberus, and happen to play during the evening/early hours of of North American Central Standard Time, you may find me at my favorite sitting spot, Aht Urhgan Whitegate. I frequent the spot atop the stairs, on the right, near the mog house. Most of my friends have come to frequent this spot also, and at times, remind me when I actually happen to stretch my legs that they are in "my spot".

The time now is 1:14am CST. Where am I in the world of FFXI? Well... The Boyahda Tree actually. Tonight I am working on, or shall I say, waiting to work on my trial to complete my cure potency staff. It's been about three hours, two monopoly games, and several nightcored songs on YouTube and still no weather for this. I'm begining to wonder what exactly it really is I'm doing.

I'm not alone tonight, and I haven't been the passed few nights either. I have been accompanying my Linkshell co-leader to these trials hoping to get a few completed where I wont be standing still on this. As a White Mage, a healer, it's hard to do these for myself for the lack of strength my character needs to actually take on one of these...wretched spiders.

I must say, I really lack the motivation to really do much in this game. I prefer the company of friends, and lately there has been a lack there of. When I start to think back, I begin to remember all the fun times I had back on Hades with my friend Kirameki. No matter where we were, or what we were doing, one, or both of us, would die. My friend would ask me why I would do things with her if they resulted in my character's demise, I would tell them that no matter what happened, we laughed and had fun.

With the picture on the left of this, we were in Gusgen grabbing keys for Kira's race specific gear she had never went to pick up. During one of these attempts, we had found the chest, and before we opened it, took this little screen shot of "Kira in a Box". So many stories we had together, and about four hours of fun chatting away to our linkshell before it split and the members went there own separate ways.

For now, I believe I have a good start on this so called "Blog", if you ask me why I call my Blog a Bug...well...I really can't tell you why. Kiori Bug has always just stuck with me when I created my name three years ago for my Mithra. Until next time, have fun, and stay safe.


  1. Awesome post! I too have many sitting spots in XI, I probably should write about them as well. I don't know how you have the patience to do the trial quests, personally after completing my ultimatum I gave up on weapons for other jobs. I look forward to reading more from you, keep it up! :)

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging! ^_^

    I can definitely understand the lack of motivation. I'm a group person as well, and really find it perplexing that many have the solo mentality in a game that's designed around teamwork.

    Regardless, it's always nice to have that "spot" where you can just relax and observe things. Hopefully, you'll find another friend where you can run around and have many more adventures.

    Again, /welcome! Looking forward to more posts.
