Having transferred to FFXIV completely as my major MMO and gaming pastime, I remember my WoW times with a mix of nostalgy and yuck. Of course, can't help comparing both games inadvertently - so yes, that would be a comparison post :) It is yet a question if and when I would return to WoW. … Continue reading The Things That I Don’t Miss in WoW – and Things That I Do
Lo, I've reached Ishgard on a new alt, and immediately took the job of a Dark Knight. This is gonna be my job from now on, until I add up Reaper at 70 (or will it be available only after Shadowbringers lore at 80?). Anyways, finally the alt is doing what it meant to be: … Continue reading FFXIV: Hello Darkness
As promised, my second (and last so far) fashion show-off for the eight combat jobs my Lalafell plays! Glamours, or transmogs for lalafell are tricky to an extent. The race is an analogue of gnomes by its height, being the shortest and the only "small folk" of the game. Unlike gnomes, or other small folk … Continue reading FFXIV: The Glams My Lalafell Wears
First and foremost, my raid and currency farming shenanigans: That's right, I've earned the third Pandaemonium weapon of 590 ilvl per character :) I think I will manage one more before 6.2. - or almost will. Aglaia is going very well, I have 4 more weeks to cover more slots, but all in all I'm … Continue reading FFXIV: Recap of One Month Before 6.2. & Alt Madness
I've been planning a fashion show off for a while. With all the peaceful currency farming and little things to report, I think it's finally time. My miqo'te plays 8 combat jobs, so here we go. GUNBREAKER (tank) Gunbreaker is a tanking class whose weapon combines the properties of a sword and a gun. The … Continue reading FFXIV: The Glams My Miqo’te Wears
There we go, Live Letter from the Producer has come and gone. I normally don't have patience to watch presentation, so I read the summaries at fan sites, which luckily are plenty. My experience with non-combat activities was not-so-good at this game, alas. I tried and abandoned crafting and gathering too soon, as the whole … Continue reading FFXIV: What Am I Expecting from Patch 6.2?
Lo, my FFXIV adventures have crossed a certain threshold. Job Leveling. Done and done! I'm 90 at all the jobs I play - so my altoholism is quite sated. It is so cool that I have a wide range to play - even during farming, I would vary and hop from one job to another … Continue reading FFXIV: Asphodelos Farming Done… Long Live Farming!
It's been roughly a year since I started playing FFXIV for reals, and well, I can finally say I caught up. I've got four major goals today - for better or for worse, almost complete. Leveling. Well... yeah. Two more days of duty roulettes to finalize the last job. This is great, because frankly I'm … Continue reading FFXIV: Quick Update
As the final stages of leveling go on, I bumped into a SCH finale. It was a great build up for a course of 80 levels, and I expected a moving piece, but it deserves a separate post after I'm through with it. Just.. don't make me retell it, it was one of the most … Continue reading Scholar Job Finale
*That's me fighting Ultima, Garuda barier part So, June is when I started my third (and this time successful) try of FFXIV, and after a year I can finally say I caught up with everything. Leveling Jobs: less than 20 levels to go each, the Arcanist duo left, split into two toons: I finished Gunbreaker … Continue reading FFXIV: A Couple Weeks To Go
