Well, it’s the end for me. I don’t have the jobs or the decks to take on the northwest part of the map. :B
Whoo! Spent a few hours today and unlocked the last 2 paths that I needed to clear the damn event. I’m not even going to try to get the “Complete!” status for Fight de Chocobo because that would most likely require the stats of my jobs to be higher and that will be a looooong time before that happens.
I was lucky that I got enough feathers to get to the battle with the chest first since there was a good chance the Gold Chocobo waiting there would drop a Rainbow Feather. I only needed 1 more after all! And it DID give me the last feather I needed! ^-^ I wish it dropped its card though. 😡
Afterwards, I beat up the Gold Chocobo for the second Chocobo familiar which was the Chocobo Family! ^o^ It’s adorable and has pretty cute animation! You can see it here~!
Here are a bunch of screenshots from the last part of the event and from a card draw I did earlier in the week. (Oh, I just noticed I didn’t include the job card I got. It was the Knight.)
Regarding the encounter with Silver and Gold Chocobos where they are of an element you’re not equipped with: it seems like they won’t run as long as you don’t attack them with their weakness. o.O Or maybe I was just lucky? It happened twice where I just slammed it with everything BUT the opposite element. It never once gave notice that it was going to escape. In fact, during one battle, the bird was nigh vicious and attacked with the spell that lops off a ton of HP twice. .__.;; I almost died that time, but thankfully, Regen kicked in. :B
Oh, I did something dumb. .__. I had enough Gold Chocobo cards to upgrade the ability to level 2 (or was it 3?) but there was a 10% chance of failure. I took the risk anyway and guess what happened. >_> I’m not sure I want to bother doing the map over and over to try and get more of them. The moral of the story is unless you don’t mind hunting for rare event-only monsters to collect their cards or have a ton of Revival Tickets to use, that 90% chance of success isn’t worth attempting. 😛
The exact same thing happened to the Earth Adamantoise cards I had, but I was even MORE of a idiot that time since I used up 2 Revival Tickets to get the 90% chance. Of course, it didn’t go as planned and by that time, it was getting to the point that I could barely survive the fights with the monster so getting more of the cards by fighting wasn’t feasible. Sigh. I STILL don’t know what the hell I was thinking then. I would have maxed out its ability if I just used the remainder of my Revival Tickets. =___= It’s a useful card too since its Break power is high and I use the Knight job a lot.
(Yes, you would figure I would have learned from my mistake with the Earth Adamantoise experience but NOPE, had to be stupid AGAIN.)
Anyway, with this special event out of the way, I can go back to grinding for Pagan Heads!
