Geeze, this is not even a blog post about
ME doing good deeds. but whatever you say.
I probably should blog about my experience of soloing Boss Cake
that took me 40~50 minutes and only got an average Kandayo
and how I met a Mexican lvl 4x mage and became friends.
But I’m telling this story anyway.
I wanted the lvl 64 Maple Kandiva Bow.
I’ve been wanting it for a while
(just not buying it from FM. The process
and experience of earning that bow
is more satisfying :p)
As I was looking for a spot in FM,
I ran into CeaseIV, lvl 128 Bowmaster
I have talked to him before, but just a quick conversation
or so at FM that lasts no longer than 15 seconds.
I don’t know him as well as I know some of my friends.
I forgot the detail, but basically, after hearing that I was looking
for a Kandiva bow, he generously gave me one for free.
He said it’s not good stat, but I didn’t care.
I just wanted to wear it for the look :p
I insisted that I’ll pay some meso for it,
but he insisted to take it for free.
Now I have been giving helping hands or items/mesos
to people before, and I know it’s a good thing and
IT FEELS GOOD to GIVE to others without asking for rewards.
Still, being the receiver makes me grateful.
and I bet CeaseIV (CeaseiV) feels good for doing a good deed too =]
At the same time, I met Serenii, lvl 89 Ranger, in FM
Similar to CeaseIV, I know Serenii recently, but not well enough
to even call her friend. I just didn’t get know him well
(yes it’s a he and he says it)
Basically, he whispered me asking my opinion on his situation:
He bought a 105 att 2 slots Dark Arund and was wondering
if he should 30% the rest, or use white scrolls.
Long story short, he is going to use white scroll and
i was there watching.
I always thought to use a white scroll you apply the scroll
on the item first THEN use the 10%/30%/60% scroll on it..
Turn out that Serenii can’t get his white scroll to work.
once again, long story short, he handed over the white scrolls,
the 105 Dark Arund , and 10% scrolls without hesistation
I was overwhelmed by the trust he had on me…
If I had 11 white scrolls and this kick ass bow,
I don’t think I can let another person to try it without
anyway, so I tried it (doing it wrong) and white scroll didn’t work.
eventually we learned how to make it work.
There’s more story after this, but the point is, I am just
overwhelmed by the trust he had on me.
We became buddy later :p
(i’d buddy CeaseIV too if he wouldn’t mind adding me)
I just saw Serenii’s post on sw.net talking about the same thing
I overpaid B0wjob by 200 million for his 109 att, 4 dex Arund. I also trusted him to hold my items while shifting to another account. He gave the items back to me, and the next day he gave me back the 200 mil. Maybe it wasn’t the greatest financial decision on his part, but him I would trust with a lot more than 200 mil after that. A person who took advantage of me in FM, I wouldn’t trust with a dime. There’s more to life than money, and there’s more to Maple than squeezing every last meso out of a person whom you think a fool.
life is beautiful
