2020-06-15 17:43:30 LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/x5fnrlDBCI
2020-06-15 18:35:12 My first Fiesta job is... nothing? It's a Chaos run, and I have a Berserker coming in the mail. (Probably two, since I'm playing Berserker Risk.) Could we see a PS1 console Quad Zerk vs Sandworm in our future? Bad Boss Karl says hi. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/d2pqq8SPdd
2020-06-15 20:31:53 Used the Ice Rod to dispatch Magissa (since I'll probably never use it later), got the Elf Cape on my seventh try, then swung by Tycoon Castle for some Freelancin' Fun Time with Weapons. Quad-Zerk incoming? #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/9nl8qno5eP
2020-06-15 22:44:02 Berserker Barrage! Getting some side work done, interrupted by brief periods of walking to the next battle. The squad is almost strong enough to beat Liquid Flame, but not there yet. The grind is real. A 1/4 chance we'll see Quad Zerk vs Sandworm. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/gEoDdI38Ry
2020-06-15 23:31:37 Hahaha! We did it! I've got Zerk-Zerk-Samurai. Except I don't get Samurai until Earth crystal. It is official! There will be Quad-Zerk versus Sandworm (my second ever), this time on actual PS1 console. (Oh, and BTW.... This is a "Forbidden" run.) #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/ComQf9dhdq
2020-06-16 13:02:13 And the Berserker grind begins! Starting out at level 18. Plan is to grind offline to level 42 ("Life, the Universe, and Everything"), then stream Sandworm "attempts" (meaning, me sitting and watching along with you to see whether they succeed). #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/nPGd1RsBbx
2020-06-17 18:23:42 I started the grind at level 18. Now I'm at 30, aiming to reach 42. Halfway there, right? (kappa) 12 levels down, but they were the easy 12 levels. We'll get there, though. Sandworm will rue the day! Getting a lot of side work done in the meantime. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/qDLmJ3mpSD
2020-06-18 13:42:30 Grinding away. Saw a tip about lizards near Istory that give more Exp than where I was. Had to dispatch this guy along the way. But I got annoyed by how often I ran into lone Mythril Dragons, yielding very little Exp, and demanding more consistent supervision. https://t.co/CnAM9BTtHa
2020-06-19 22:21:21 "C'mon baby, let the Zerk grind roll... Roll all night loooong..." I've made it to 42, but I'll keep grinding until I can stream. For some reason, Galuf alone kept getting pummeled, even through Elf Cape. I had to give him Hunting Knife to block it. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/ZjPUouZlOi
2020-06-21 01:25:34 And we're up to level 45. Poor Galuf keeps getting abused through that Elf Cape. Plan is to stream tonight, Saturday night, starting at Midnight Pacific time. https://www.twitch.tv/ersatz_cats Quad-Zerk versus Sandworm. PS1. Can they do it? Damn, I hope so. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/87XeLEOgwy
2020-06-21 21:35:50 Well, I didn't get it live on stream in 21 tries, but I returned hours later, running attempts in the background while I worked. And on my fifth such attempt, out of the corner of my eye, I saw Lenna deal the final blow. My Fiesta can now continue! #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/eG76g0OoMO
2020-06-21 22:57:31 Oh man, this run is gonna be wild! First off, I finally got my Samurai. High levels + high gil = no enemies survive. But my earth job is a THIRD Berserker. Oh, and this is a "Forbidden" run. I could still end the game with Quad-Zerk again! #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/K4Y4oTrYdL
2020-07-09 12:54:36 And that, my friends, catches us up to this evening. Been tearing through world 2 while figuring out the pile of updates. Got to Tyrannosaur, realized I still had Death Sickles on, thought "Oh damn, that'll be a do-over." lol They killed him anyway. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/VDtr4v1RRv
2020-07-09 13:01:00 No Gil-tossing yet. No nothing yet. They're unstoppable by default. I just set my Samurai to Berserk and let them fight it out while I do other stuff. I was hoping to get the full SWAGYOLO kill on Atomos. Didn't quite get there, but they were close. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/nw7F0roo4f
2020-07-09 17:05:04 Still with Samurai set to Berserk. They actually gained a level up to 47 over the course of world 2. At some point I'll take over the wheel again, but for fun, I decided to take one roll on auto-Berserk against Exdeath. 4x Flame Rings got it done. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/7nf4Jwunz8
2020-07-09 19:26:09 Nearing that fateful hour of this "Forbidden" run. (A.K.A. "You about to lose yo job!") I assume it's a 1/4 chance I finish with Quad-Zerk, which I'm prepared to do. But I definitely wanted to take care of this guy now, before I'm unable to. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/rh9MM1ZbbE
2020-07-10 13:31:54 I lost one Berserker, and am now down to two Zerks, one Samurai, and one of either of my choosing. (Guess which one I'm choosing.) The Halicarnassus fight can be a little annoying with multiple Zerks due to her frog move, but otherwise not a threat. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/I9odo2UO5K
2020-07-10 14:50:44 I hadn't been very consistent about picking up the Genji gear in any of my runs so far, but I did think to grab some here. I'm at just over 100k gil for the NXD fight, and Gil Toss will probably use that up. I may seek out a Mover fight first. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/6TsgBATwib
2020-07-10 15:16:04 I decided to take one shot at NXD before re-funding. I almost always save Magic Lamp for the end, but this time I fired it off right away to reduce targets. Holy cow, Gil Toss is strong! Kept firing away, and NXD just died. Never saw Grand Cross. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/0mR1q0vyVh
2020-07-10 21:27:43 Here I gooooo agaaain on my oowwwwwnnnn. I'd prefer not to register new runs until the previous one's fully verified. But I can start playing through Wind Shrine. Oh yeah, why are Lenna and Galuf already dead? Heh heh, I think you know the answer. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/xUcNVlx9yO
2020-07-12 18:36:58 That's right! I'm doing another two-character Fiesta. I did this last year successfully, but I got super lucky on jobs. Waiting on my Red Mage here. Siren is an unexpected gatekeeper for two Freelancers. I had to grind to level 16 just to beat her. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/x7xo1LwoHB
2020-07-12 19:42:03 I'm not a big fan of "Popular" jobs runs, but I thought it might give me a boost on a two-character Fiesta. Of course, I'm taking all the advantages I can get here. My math says the odds I get a good mage job I can pair with !Dualcast are about 53%. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/Rb1gHioY2p
2020-07-13 19:43:42 I've got a Samurai (Yay!) and a Dragoon (meh) waiting for me after Ronka Ruins. Two Aegis Shield holders. Looking like a successful two-character Fiesta. Slim chance left I could pair my !Dualcast with actual magic, but not impossible yet. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/mrvEl4A8Oy
2020-07-13 21:52:52 Two-character Fiesta gives you a new perspective on full-party heals. With Cray Claw, there's no pre-fight to kill Lenna and Galuf, so you have to do your heal-and-kill before the ruin city. It's the most complicated the Cray Claw fight ever gets. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/fL5WxHjcpN
2020-07-13 22:21:22 Let's see, this fight cost me... (mentally calculates 750x8)... 6000 gil. Just doing some Gil Toss style warm-up exercises, you know. Red Mage has been fantastic here in world 1, firing bolts and swinging swords. But soon I'll be off to world 2. #FF5FJF2020 https://t.co/hYxuoEv8jY
