Verily, you will never leave anything for the sake of Allāh the Exalted except that Allāh will replace it with something better.
—  The Prophet ﷺ, Musnad Ahmad #22565

“Staff make a Lightning venue that’s easier to grind in!!”
“I can’t grind in the Workshop, it’s too hard!!”
“I can only grind in lower level areas this isn’t fair!!”


That would be great if the Workshop wasn’t hell on earth for even a decent Coli team.

I used Culex’s leveling guide to build my team; the team I take to grind exalt fodder and can farm practically everything (but the new tougher bosses; and even then it’s mostly just the Mire’s toads because they hit like a truck).

Even Culex says that Workshop is hell and he cannot remotely advocate going here unless you absolutely have to; and even then to only farm if you have a mage/healer in your team, which, I have not had time to build before the festival. That place is only farmable if you’re supremely lucky; nevermind the broken dodge rate and missing Ambush turn glitch that makes using Eliminate an utter breath and health-draining crapshoot.

So now I’m back to mindlessly grinding a much more sub-par drop rate in the Arena. But hey, at least the wasps will feed my scaly children.

anonymous asked:

What was your first impression of Lady Emmeryn when she became the youngest Exalt in Ylisse? I'm only curious because of the negative (though irrational and presumptuous, but understanble nonetheless) she received, some out of anger because of her father's actions, others out of skepticism due to her mature air offset by her physical age. Not many though would have said that they were happy or accepting of their new Exalt save for those who have known her for some time.

“Well, I’m afraid my first impression of Her Grace was one of admitted uncertainty. I was only a lad in the midst of a war when she was crowned Queen, and the soldiers and officers I was with knew only whispers of her. Some part of me dreaded that she would carry out her father’s legacy, while another feared that she would be an ineffective ruler who would let the halidom sink into discord. Another part of me still hoped that she would be the kind of leader Ylisse so direly needed to hoist itself from the ashes of its ruinous state and restore it to its former glory.

It wasn’t until a few years later that I would meet her for myself and realise that she was more than I could have possibly dreamed of in an Exalt. The moment I first met with her… well, I suppose I was taken aback, as I’d imagine many others who met her had been. She seemed to radiate with that air of unbridled compassion and kindness that she had, and the simple words she spoke were full of wisdom and honesty. With seemingly little effort at all, Lady Emmeryn changed me and gave me something to strive for once again. Even though she may no longer be among us, defending the legacy she left behind and seeing her vision for the future come to fruition remain the greatest ambitions of my life.”

  • hatched a lightning egg for thundercrack
  • It was ugly as sin
  • Bought a scatterscoll
  • He got uglier
  • Ended up just exalting it

I wasted a lot of money and I have myself to blame tbh.

Best To Worst Placements for Sun - with reasons for top and bottom two.

1. Leo - Their planet (or in this case, star) ruler is the Sun. The Sun emanates the light in our universe to reach all over the corners of our solar system and quite literally this translates to Leos holding up the universe and becoming the most important figures in either their own or other people’s lives, either way children under this sign have the ability to make an impact in someone’s life and most of them will do so whether it be deliberately or in an oblivious state. Most of the times, Leos are self-confident with who they are. If people under this sign do face self-confidence issues, they eventually evolve to become more trusting of themselves as ego-consciousness becomes more evident with the development of their lives. 

2. Aries - The Sun is in exaltation in Aries. This means that although it isn’t Aries’ ruler, people whose signs fall under Aries are gifted in life in having very high opinions of themselves, which of course can sometimes be fallible but can also mean good as Aries children are always giving off an aura of self-assuredness in the sense that they do not seem like they doubt themselves even if it is quite the opposite mentally. It also means that they can come across as imperious leaders as the Sun being in it’s exaltation lends Aries’ to have extreme raw energy of the Sun which leads them to have immense trust in themselves and their decisions. The Sun’s energy is typically quite malleable and clear in Leos which allows Leos to grow with their ego but is in its purest and clearest form in Aries.

3. Taurus

4. Gemini

5. Capricorn

6. Sagittarius

7. Pisces

8. Virgo

9. Scorpio

10. Cancer

11. Libra - (okay, before I start, I am aware of the Libra hate going around and please trust me that I’m not basing my MTL on that.) The Sun is in fall in Libra and in a way, I believe it is a befitting fit to Libra. The Sun is about the ego, about yourself and your self-expression, this fits the Leo perfectly as this is their “archetype” or rather what they are associated with. Libras are a socialising sign and depend on others for confirmation and guidance, so they DO take a bit of everyone who they’re around’s personality and use it as a tool to get a long with someone. (If you’re an individualist from another sign, this can be aggravating for rather obvious reasons.) However I don’t believe that Libra has “no personality” but rather that they need to develop the self-confidence and trust in themselves to let their own personality shine through rather than using another’s to let themselves feel accepted by others.

12. Aquarius - The Sun is in detriment in Aquarius and though I don’t really believe that to be a bad placement, it can be considered the worst placement for the Sun as the Sun is more concerned about self and ego however Aquarius are more group oriented. Aquarius children do not see individuals, they see groups to “save” or “revolutionize”, they see the bigger picture whilst the Sun is focused on one point of the picture. Sun in Aquarius is concerned about the well-being of others and their needs and that is why they are considered the Humanitarians of the zodiac. It will take time for the Aquarius to realise that although you should definitely take in regard the feelings of others, it is important to remember yourself too.

oh man can't see why he's got disdain for teenage fangirls when he's literally been following this band around for like 10 fricking years exalting himself as THE source of knowledge. i've been creeped out by coz for like 8 years already tbh

HONESTLY THOUGH.  (I’ve been vaguely creeped out for about 6 years, but I didn’t have my bad vibes properly validated until recently.)

anonymous asked:

Okay question!!! Yay so if a planet is ruled by a sign, for example Venus is ruled by Taurus and Libra, would a Venus in Aries (since Aries is opposite Libra) be in fall or detriment? Or none at all? Also since Venus is exalted in Pisces, would that make a Venus in Virgo (opposite Pisces) in fall or detriment?? Or again none at all?? Sorry if this makes no sense and thanks in advance if you answer!!

Opposite of ruler is detriment. Opposite of exalted is fall. :-)

Prayer to St John Vianney for Parish Priests

 Dear Saint John Vianney, your childhood dream was to be a priest, to win souls for God. You endured years of toil and humiliation to attain the priesthood. You became a priest truly after God’s own heart, outstanding in humulity and poverty, prayer and mortification, totally devoted to the service of God’s people. The Church has exalted you as model and patron saint of all Parish Priests, trusting that your example and prayers will help them to live up to the high dignity of their vocation to be faithful servants of God’s people, to be perfect imitators of Christ the Saviour Who came not to be served but to serve, to give His Life in ransom for many. Please pray that God may give to His Church today many more priests after His own heart. Pray for all the priests under your patronage, that they may be worthy representatives of Christ the Good Shepherd. May they wholeheartedly devote themselves to prayer and penance; be examples of humility and poverty; shining models of holiness; tireless and powerful preachers of the Word of God; zealous dispensers of God’s Grace in the sacraments. May their loving devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist and to Mary His Mother be the Twin Fountains of fruitfulness for their ministry. Amen.

I hope the message you gave over Colossians 3 went well and that you learned a lot from it as well :)

It’s this coming Saturday. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Holy Spirit speak through me and Christ be exalted

I really want to throw my dragons into the transmutation cauldron!!! I bet they would make awesome stuff! XD

I hope one day they have an update that makes this possible. It would be a lot more fun than exalting them.
