*spoiler alert: the content is not that vast to divide it into non-spoiler and spoiler parts, so I'll be discussing MSQ and raid questlines on the way. Approach with care! Well, I think I've seen it all by now: the main story questline and the raid questline, with aftermaths. I think that Loporrit tribal crafting … Continue reading FFXIV Patch 6.3.: My Impressions
Legion Raids on Farm… Kinda
With legacy rules online since this week's reset, I've tried a couple of test runs yesterday with Micromantica the Frost Mage main. Raids of the previous expansion usually don't make sense to me during current expansion lulls. By the end of Legion I tried the easiest Highmaul, and only my paladin and in her protection … Continue reading Legion Raids on Farm… Kinda
Ny’alotha: A Peep into The Waking Dream
It's N'Zoth times in LFR, and so far this wing is insane. I will describe my group experience in the next post, here's just a summary opinion on the boss design and difficulty. First of all, lore. Despite of what other people say, the whole thing is quite logical. We placed the beacons all over … Continue reading Ny’alotha: A Peep into The Waking Dream
Ny’alotha: A Peep into Halls of Devotion
While first wing of Ny'alotha seemed hardest in terms of trash rather than bosses, the second wing kicks poor LFRaiders right into crotch! Despite the two weeks of gearing up in 8.3., the second wing seems way overtuned - most notably, with Hivemind and Vexiona. I can't possibly imagine how a group of 410 access … Continue reading Ny’alotha: A Peep into Halls of Devotion
Ny’alotha: A Peep into Vision of Destiny
The traditional raid wing review will start with a simple fact: we're so weak, and LFR is so overtuned by now. Let's start with infamous trash. Definitely, very definitely we'te not able to AoE packs, and we have to pull very, very carefully one by one. Mechanics are very punishing, which is excessive for trash, … Continue reading Ny’alotha: A Peep into Vision of Destiny
So, the long holidays are finally over, and we're back on the posting tracks. It's been hell of a farming ride. Whenever I had spare time from IRL activities (and there was more than enough spare time!), I've been ploughing all the raids with all the toons in no particular order. Still there were some … Continue reading Marathon Aftermath
Suns Out, Thoridals Out?
My first Sunwell set is complete! Funny enough, it was my rogue running the raid AND it was the druid set! The last remaining piece dropped when I decided to clear all the trash, even before the first boss Kalecgos. Achievement is great, but we've got a lot of work to do here for the … Continue reading Suns Out, Thoridals Out?
This is Actually Fun!
When I started this whole transmog project a couple of weeks ago, I never thought I would be engaged so much. No really, how sad the multiple re-runs of stale raids on multiple toons may seem on paper? And yet it appeared to be the coolest activity during my lull! It has multiple attractions. Obviously … Continue reading This is Actually Fun!
Transmog Farming Guide
The goal of this guide is to cover the solo raids which provide class sets for achievements and set collections. Maps and explanations provide shortcuts to minimize legwork and use of hearthstones. You should bind your hearthstone to Great Seal/Snug Harbor Inn (Boralus) to get the best access to the Stormwind/Orgrimmar portal rooms. Use Dalaran … Continue reading Transmog Farming Guide
Transmog Hunt: God, That’s Some Work to Be Done!
My newest agenda is solo hunting for transmogs in older raids - naturally all expansions before Legion, Vanilla -> Draenor. Some classes for obvious reasons have a smaller amount of work (death knights, monks, demon hunters). In theory they can be dismissed from the expansions before they were introduced, although they still have a say … Continue reading Transmog Hunt: God, That’s Some Work to Be Done!
