So not to get spoilers into the post preview, let's start with 6.1. story recap - basically a lead-in. After the world is saved from apocalypse, we went on a leisure treasure hunt - where we found a secret treasure vault of Thavnair. Turns out, it held not just a massive gold stash which was … Continue reading FFXIV: 6.2. Buried Memory MSQ Review (Spoilers)
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 noticed it first in Stormblood, but it's more prominent in Endwalker, as in Stormblood "The Measure of His Reach" was alternating with other, non-song lines. If you read Endwalker questline achievement names - the ones that are given for finishing a story chapter - they make a song lyric together. https://www.youtube.com/embed/ikrNcwGRLvE Someone conveniently looped … Continue reading FFXIV: Achievement Names Are Theme Songs!
So, I'm glad to announce that my pre-patch goals are by and large complete :) Main Story Questline: obviously, complete - and as far as Thursday. Thanks to Dara from previous post comments - I've discovered a custom Party Finder which made my Meteion queue just 10 minutes and a first try kill ) The … Continue reading FFXIV: Last Minute Preparations
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?
I've blasted through the expansion in 3 days of gaming sessions. As always, it was cool to replay - I think this is where FFXIV took its final form. Rock-oriented OST and main themes with superb Jason C. Miller on vocals, more grave and tragic story, sheer epicness - all the treats that remained throughout … Continue reading FFXIV: Shadowbringers Done
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!
Suddenly, there's so many things to do before pre-patch that I'm spread really thin. Within 2 weeks, one weekend off gaming for a Summer trip, I need to do so much stuff on all alts! Lolo and Sanya, my flagship alts, both have last minute raiding to do. Obviously, a couple more weekly Aglaia runs … Continue reading FFXIV: My Pre-Patch Fuss
