Devastation of Bahamut

Eeeeeeee FFXIV 2nd Year Anniversary Fun!!

Oh My Ifrit!

meeting 2.0 Ifrit for the first time yeeekss!

Wow does time FLY!! Can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since ARR launched. Out of nostalgia, went back through and looked at footage from launch until now. I remember not sleeping the entire first week or two of ARR Launch >< I managed to fit in work, life, and non stop FFXIV while taking short naps everytime the server went down, thank god! In a way it was fun but primarily I’m NEVER DOING ANYTHING LIKE THAT!! Ever! AGAIN! All done crazy youthful days of staying up every single night playing games lol!

Aque The Weaver

trying to look cute for the camera after grinding all HQ crafting sets in the second week of ARR

I could tell just how delirious I must have been from the raw footage that I was sifting through, it is a giant mess of jumbled together bits and pieces, what was I doing here, why am I doing this quest, wait, who am I? WHERE AM I? It’s pretty hilarious! Heavensward was a much saner experience for me, I took it slow, steady and old lady like /pats self

Exploring Heavensward

poking around Fortemp’s Manor and talking to every NPC in Heavensward!

Cannot wait for the 14 hour live stream! And for the anniversary event in game, minions gimme gimme (on a side note, both carbie plushies arrived last week, OMG MINIONSS). I’m not planning on staying up all night but thank god SE scheduled it for a weekend so that if I do stay up, I won’t be such a zombie while at work!

Version 1.0 Aque

Aque in 1.0! Not too shabby! I literally changed nothing from 1.0 to ARR, this is also the closest model I could find to my FFXI character!


I also look forward to the creative process that always seem to occur around the anniversary date! Hopefully everyone will also enjoy my random video shoo shoos!

When the 1.0 servers went down, I made the following FMV, out of feels and also from great anticipation for what 2.0 was to bring:

Final Fantasy XIV FMV: Twilight Over Eorzea


This next one was created during last year’s anniversary! It was inspired by something Mr. Housing said.

Final Fantasy XIV FMV: Where It All Began, The Path to A Ream Reborn

From: Yoichi Wada, Mr. Housing
“Thank you for playing FFXIV: A Realm Reborn.

For me, the most memorable part of this journey was the “End of an Era” trailer, which bridged 1.0 and ARR. The team worked as one to claw its way up from the rock bottom we’d hit in 2010, and this trailer marked the point at which we felt we could finally bring our FFXIV to the fans again. I remember how deeply moved I was, seeing that we did in fact make FFXIV a true FINAL FANTASY title while at the same time personally coming to terms with what had happened.

Through your fandom, we were able to make a fresh start. Please continue to help make FFXIV all it can be.”


This one was created after the conclusion of the 2.0 storyline, with the insane cliff hanger heading towards 3.0. It’s not technically an anniversary video but it felt appropriate at the time I was making it:

Final Fantasy XIV FMV: Of Families, Friends and Foes

Looking forward to celebrating the 2nd Anniversary with everyone!! SPAZZZZZZZZZZZ!! woo wooo!!!

FFXIV Fan Festival Day 2 Summary

producerletter

Las Vegas Fan Festival Day 2 is over and tomorrow YoshiP and team will be on a flight to prepare for London Fan Fest next weekend! What did we learn today?

  • Patch 2.4 rolls out October 28th (nothing new here, everyone figured it’d be out very soon after the London Fan Fest but nice to have official confirmation!)
  • YoshiP is still a troll
  • The Live Letter didn’t give much more new information but did confirm a few things
  • New housing ward will be made available, but in the form of ‘subdivisions’. The explanation seemed a bit complicated so instead of typing it up, I just made a quick excerpt of that section below.
  • Final Coil of Bahamut will have 4 turns. First will be doable with current i110 gear, 2nd turn will be more challenging, turn 3 and 4 is supposed to be insane.
  • The Hildibrand quests are going to continue being hilarious but the storyline ends before 3.0. Pretty sure they won’t phase out Hildi but YoshiP would not commit to yes or no. Short intro to Ultros and Typhon from the questline below. The music is absolutely awesome and brings such nostalgia for the older games!
  • There was an interesting discussion about echo and adjustments to the difficulty of Second Coil of Bahamut. I made a clip of it below. I’ve heard many different view points on content ‘nerfing’ in a way, which you can tell the audience wants things to remain ‘hard’. I understand both view points, and agree with what the producers need to balance in term of financial profitability from content. It’s a huge discussion and everyone has their own opinions. My two cents: what does matter in the long run? Allowing more players to catch up means profit for the company which in turns allow them to create harder content for future patches which the 1%ers will eat up quickly and then move on.
  • Also of note, in content where there is a weekly lock out, they are trying to balance out a system which will allow players to assist other LS mates. We’ve been asking for this for ages, not being able to help friends after weekly Coil clear for example was the poop!
  • Ninja gear – looks like it’ll be sharing with Monk for contents up to 2.3. Then it starts to get specialized.
  • Ninja primary stat – dexterity
  • The marriage system is called Eternal Bond and a limit will be placed on number of ceremonies allowed per day. Sort of like RL wedding halls, gotta book it?!
  • Best of Show cosplayer was the amazing Garuda. So many awesome cosplays, very impressive
  • To everyone who got to go and then got to win a Titan at the Raffle … /stinkeye /jealousy!!!
  • KOJI FOX CAN SING HOLY FREAKING HELL!
  • A bunch more small details here and there, watch the full live letter below

Full Live Letter From the Producer at Las Vegas Fan Festival

 

 

 

FFXIV Fan Festival Day 1 Summary

titanyohnehotscoops

What did we learn today:

  • YoshiP is a giant troll (which is why he rocks)
  • Soken’s energy is infectious
  • Gondai’s small team works their butt off with amazing skills
  • Dark Knight (or something of similar name pretty much confirmed by TrollShiP)
    Me: Vivid, yoshiP was trolling about jobs and batman and Nolan and shit, please decipher!
    Vivid: Dark Knight
    Me: oh… OH ohOHHHHHHHH!
  •  My previous post about Samurai has apparently been making the rounds as “data mined at fan fest” wut….. rumormille machine chug chug chug XD
  • Viangaa is a thang, no really YoshiP…… oh fine

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Odin Makes Excalibur Cry

I just realized I have not made a blog post in… 6 days! OMG! End of the world! Between work ramping up, hubby  and starting a 3rd DM Group for Bahamut’s Coil, life is pretty hectic these days. So to get myself back into the groove of news digging, I’m reposting some videos I upped but never mentioned XD

On August 29th, Odin visited Excalibur and completely trounced us…

On September 1st…. Excalibur fought back and won! Congratulations to DM FC mates who received the achieve and gold medal!
Yes yes… in the video below I was doing a lot of running around doing nothing lol. You can’t see it from the video but I was experimenting with a new targeting filter to see what works best for targeting Odin. In the end it just devolved to running right through him to tab target (even if he does not appear on your screen) to get a lock on him but you have to stand pretty close to his AOE (I have another video that demonstrates this better, need to find it though >< over 3 TB of encoded videos for the game so far….)

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Behemoth Fate Is AWESOME!

I am lucky to say I have a rockin pc and gaming setup, and I am loving that the game takes advantage of it. It loads just enough people around me for me to useful as a healer and with the new gamepad targeting system (I will write up a guide for this soon I promise!), I had no issue running around ‘tabbing’ with the gamepad and since Behemoth is the only enemy target in this particular area, its super easy to get him.

I have heard that some people can be right on top of him and he will not load, I also notice that whoever you have target on including Focus Target, will always display, so there is some display AI and priorities at work here. I’m pressure sure there were several hundred players in that same space and I did not feel a lick of lag not at all ❤ it! The targeting for me was pretty simple and whenever I lost sight of him, I ran in towards the concentration of battle effects (pretty useful to have them turned on here!)

I think SE should consider making these types of FATE give full priority to displaying the HNM and it’s pops (like adds etc.). Regardless, without further ado, here is the video, enjoy!

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Relic Reborn To-Do List

Finally starting to take stock of end game and events and in browsing the forums, I see players are already offering guides which rock! Yay community! I will be posting two different lists here, one from BG and one from official forums.


Relic Reborn guide courtesy of Rogue Muse on the official forums, this one lists the materials needed for the synths. (Work in progress)

NOTE: This is a bare-bones, spoiler/story free-ish quest guide. Information is compiled from various sources, including bluegartr and people posting on the forum. Credit goes to the people who shared the information. There are still a few variables, so please post if you can flesh out the missing data.
