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
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
My first evening was naturally devoted to MSQ - and the next chapter is complete. I'll post some screenshots, but pick them as vague as possible in this post, as not to spoil the story. First of all, story: I loved it. It's like your favorite TV show just got a new season - a … Continue reading FFXIV: Buried Memory – Spoiler Free First Impressions
I figured out that in my case Aether Currents progress panel is the best way to check in with overall MSQ progress, so here goes: That's right, today I'm trying to cover Elpis and delve into Labyrinthos as far as possible. By weekend, I expect MSQ and Dark Knight leveling to be complete, and maybe … Continue reading FFXIV: Almost There?
My fresh leveling toon finished Titania in FFXIV. Nothing special of the act itself, it's an arena-style raid boss, required to advance through MSQ (Main Story Questline). So everyone that made it past level 73 killled it at least once, and so had a chance to receive it in duty roulette when leveling alt classes. … Continue reading FFXIV/WoW: Community Difference
Styrgeim doubled on dark stuff and rolled a Reaper immediately upon 70 :) I've played Reaper before on my Lalafell, so I'm familiar with the RPR rotation basics - simple and flashy enough to enjoy the job. Too bad I haven't thoroughly explored its current level yet: MSQ is reserved for Dark Knight, and roulettes … Continue reading FFXIV: Reaper!
There, Hesperos went down for the last time tonight, and that concludes my gear farming in this tier. The only thing left is another stroll to Aglaia upon Tuesday reset, and my flaghsip 2 alts are benched until patch 6.2.! Here's the gear sheet of a casual FFXIV raider, I think I did very well: … Continue reading FFXIV: Farming Done!
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
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
