So day after day my char gets a little better, and day after day i try a para balron. Well today i killed one for the first time, took a bit of running around and a little luck but i finally downed one. So naturally when the next para came up i thought "ya i got this thing licked, no biggie" When he hit about 60% he blasted me with a melee shot a FS and an EB all in about 3 nanoseconds and I was thereby humbled, and naturally he took the 8k gold the one i managed to kill dropped. I still got 1 though ^^ Hopefully ill find a 120 parry scroll sooner or later, theres only 1 around that i've seen on sonoma and its overpriced, right now im sitting on 115 bushido and 110 parry for lack of scrolls, hopefully when i get those up ill be doin good. Made up for the lack of parry by using a 2 hander, hence the running around to drink pots lol.
