It has taken me a long time to finally get Tristan up to Level 58, to get to this quest, despite Celestia has only been out recently. He hasn't exactly been the easiest but by far my favorite character and balance my favorite school. I'm lucky to have had X to run around the spiral with, despite I'm sure he would say the exact same thing about me at the same time. It definitely has been a challenge, and a good one. We're almost done with Celestia as well, finally entering the Crab Empire area, as of tonight but we'll get into that another entry.
I would have to say that Ra is my favorite spell, and not because it's the latest spell out for Balance or because of the bigger hit damage plus it is an all hitter, that helps though. I like it for its look, plus I'm really into Egyptian mythology, and Ra and Horus are my favorite Gods. What they were all about. Horus or the part of the spell that is looked to be a falconesque being was the God of the Sky, God of War as well as God of Protection, which I think fits Balance quite wonderfully. We balance students are considered the buffer and I'm constantly keeping others alive rather than actually giving out the damage. Now, Ra was the Sun God, which again, fits what the spell is about as well, obviously. I understand why they combined Ra and Horus together as well, because in lore it happened that as well. In mythology Ra and Horus because Ra-Horakhty, then became Amun-Ra. It all fits if you know anything about myth, but, I'm done with my little lesson despite I didn't say much and what I have said can be quite confusing.
While getting to Level 58 was in itself a big challenge for X and I, I'm telling you the actual boss you fight to get it, at least for me it was hard. I don't exactly know how many times I actually died, but, it was quite a bit. I'm excited though to see what is coming up for me though in Celestia. I plan on trying my hand at stacking again as well since tonight X and I played around with it and started me wanting to get back into doing that to see just how much we can do with his new Leviathan spell that he obtained the same time I got Ra. I'm stoked.
