FFXIV: Blessed Cauldronking’s Alembic

I don’t usually blog on weekends, but this was one achievement that has taken me months to earn, and I’m excited to post about it! I’ve finally crafted enough items as an Alchemist to earn the Blessed Cauldronking’s Alembic!

Craft 370 unique items as an Alchemist.

Considering I didn’t start crafting with Amon in earnest until maybe half a year ago, I think this is a pretty nice get. Especially since I was gated by things like having to grow different color and types flowers for many, many corsages over the course of weeks.

It’s much more impressive in person, but here’s a quick GIF of it.

This may not be a huge deal to folks who make crafting their game-lives, but this is my first level 70 blessed tool… and… I think I’m taking a break from crafting at this intensity for a while. XD

Removing the Tape

So I wanted to show you something. Check it out!

How about that! I removed the washi tape marker for my first finger position earlier this week!

Actually, this was more because the tape had begun to bunch up at the G string now that I’ve started playing the lower notes. I ignored it for a while, then finally got annoyed with it and decided to take it off.

I hear about how you’re supposed to be focusing on training the ear rather than the eye to know where fingers should be on the finger board. While I don’t feel comfortable enough removing the third finger tape yet, I’m adjusting to removing the first finger, and it’s gone well so far!

Progress!
