I nearly forgot, but 7 weeks have passed since raid tokens started dropping, and this means I get a 620 weapon for the "main" jobs of my alts this week! Miqo'te obviously gets a Dragoon weapon (and it's my first job to cross the general 600 ilvl threshold), Lalafell decided she's a Warrior main, so … Continue reading FFXIV: My First Patch 6.2. Weapons!
As expected, leveling slows down after 50 for a number of reasons. So, I've just managed Machinist, Monk and Scholar/Summoner through Heavensward, all jobs now hanging at 60 and waiting for another roulette level to be able to spam Stormblood dungeons. Leveling through Duty Support has its pros and cons. Pros: absent queue time, which … Continue reading FFXIV: Reset Update
Today's the reset day, and I'm checking in with the past week adventures. Raiding. I figured out every mechanic of all four encounters and how to cope with them. I can't tell I'm flawless of course - hiccups and deaths do happen occasionally, but all in all I'm very confident about what to do, where … Continue reading FFXIV: Reset Day
Of course, you can play any job in FFXIV and complete the main storyline, but there are canonical jobs for the story character as he/she swaps them during his/her adventures. I have collected them throughout the web and trailers, and here goes the list. FFXIV: in the failed launch of the initial game, Warrior of … Continue reading FFXIV: Canonical Warrior of Light Jobs by Expansion
Well, there's no lengths I can't walk for roleplay reasons. The next brilliant idea about my alts was to reschedule jobs among them - which means more leveling :) Two reasons behind the decision: one, some jobs feel better with Roegadyn than with Miqo'te and Lalafell, so yes, roleplay. Two, and most importantly, it was … Continue reading FFXIV: Altoholism Has No Cure
Outside of raid resets, I'm deeply in two major activities - Sage leveling and Fell Court of Troia dungeon gear farming. Sage is not truly a disaster, but I severely lack major abilities in earlier content roulettes. The kit is simply not enough to bear with critical situations - especially considering the AoE heals. And … Continue reading FFXIV: Fell Court of Troia on Farm
This blog is my gaming diary, first and foremost, but sometimes I write an IRL piece for the important stuff. LotR and GoT new series, as my personal top high fantasy settings, surely deserve one. Normally I wait for the whole season of this kind of series to binge-watch them in one sit, but in … Continue reading IRL: House of Dragon and Rings of Power First Episodes Review
Sage to me is definitely the hardest healer to play today - even compared to Scholar :) This is the last combat job to level and master, except BLU (which is a DISGRACE). See, the general idea is a lot like Scholar: relying on pre-emptive shields which requires exceptional knowledge of boss mechanics, a sort … Continue reading FFXIV: Struggling with Sage
I've just realised that Patch 6.2. is essentially my first current patch in the game. I finished Shadowbringers questline just a couple of weeks before Endwalker expansion release, and while I hopped on MSQ on day 1 of the expansion, I spent 6.0. and even a lot of 6.1. leveling alt jobs. I skipped 6.0. … Continue reading FFXIV: My Gearing Map for 6.2. and 6.3.
Island Sanctuary is a fresh casual activity of patch 6.2. It's sort of a mix of housing and... Animal Crossing? I wouldn't know, I did not play the game. Anyways, it's a thing-in-itself, with island-earned and island-spent currency. The only thing that requires mats from the outside world is Island Prisms to glam your cabin … Continue reading FFXIV Island Sanctuary: My First Impressions
