The Great Terrible Names Post – FFXIV Edition

I’m pretty let down with the collection of odd and silly character names i managed to collect during my time in FFXIV.  I suppose it shouldn’t be a surprise that the quantity is way below that of my GW2 collection considering i only lasted a few months in the game.  I’m sure given the same amount of playtime, i could …

FFXIV Database Exploit

I honestly didn’t know what to say when i heard about this on Friday.  At first i thought it was just a joke or someone screwing around with us.  There’s a thread over on Bluegartr forums discussing the entire issue since all of the official forum posts seem to have been deleted.  It’s sad, depressing, and i can’t say I’m …

Lightning Returns

No not that Lightning thankfully.  I’m talking about weather effects of course and those specifically in FFXIV.  They’re simply amazing to look at and really add to the atmosphere, as they should. During my normal running around like crazy to get as much done as i can, i had one of those “stop and smell the roses” moments.  It happened …

A Relic Reborn

One of the perks of starting A Relic Reborn right after hitting 50 is that you essentially have to do a lot of the tasks on the quest chain anyways to progress towards The Binding Coil of Bahamut raid dungeon.  Killing two birds with one stone instead of having to redo the primal fights for this quest does save a …

Titan Falls

My last obstacle, boss fight wise anyways, to completing all the hard mode primals and completing my first relic finally goes down.  After countless hours and numerous wipes to Ifrit and Garuda, thanks to really poor pick-up groups, i was able to snag a FC group with experienced players and take Titan down in no time.  Much to my surprise …

Magitek Armor

Main scenario quests complete!  With the completion of the story, players are rewarded with a magitek armor mount.  That’s only two mounts at this time for me which makes for an easy decision as to which one to roll with.  I mean how could anyone not want to ride around in one of these?  OCP, I’m coming for you and …

The Song Remains the Same

Definitely not, after hitting 50 on my bard which is my second class/job to max level.  I’m not sure i would even consider this class a real Bard to begin with.  I take that back, i am 100% sure it’s not really one.  Don’t get me wrong, this job is a lot of fun from a damage standpoint and from …

The Good the Bad and the Ugly XIV

I planned on doing an overview of what i thought of ARR a week ago but decided to wait until i hit max level.  It really is the only fair way i felt i could do it.  The game deserves that at least after three years of rework and a complete overhaul.  I’m also going to ignore the log in …

Warriors Come Out To Play

      My trusty bird Sirdidymus My first max level class/job, after a few weeks of super exciting Fate grinds, is of course my badass Warrior.  I have a serious love/hate relationship with this job.  On one hand, I’ve always enjoyed the heavy armor classes with big 2-handed weapons.  On the other hand, i retired from tanking four years ago when …

Pride and Duty

After some confusion as to what was actually necessary to acquire and unlock my first job, i managed to have the classes leveled that i needed and unlocked Warrior.  There were some rumors of Pugilist being thrown in the mix, which i didn’t have leveled, but they were false of course.  I forgot how much i enjoyed actually having to …
