Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Binding Coil of Bahamut Turns 1-4

Uploaded this a while back but totally forgot to post it on here, and kept sending people to this blog to view it, gomenne! Here it is, better late then never! The video is from 10/24/2013. We’ve been steadily working and improving on Turn 5 as well, Twintania is a pretty fun fight but quite stressful! I am so ready to go back to being lazy now lol

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – FC – BlueGartr – World First Turn 5! Congratulations!!

Well done BG!!! This is pretty exciting news!!



Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Binding Coil of Bahamut Videos from 10/08/2013 Posted Finally!

It only took me weeks to finally start recording and then a few more weeks to encode, cut and upload to youtube. I blame SE servers for that or my ISP, anyone but me! /nods For some reason if I spend the day uploading to youtube, I will 100% have issues in game that evening so this limits me to certain days of the week ; ;

Tonight we’re going in again and will hopefully be able to try Turn 5 again finally, we’ve only gone in once and leeroyed our way through conflagration! Usually we go on Tuesdays but Dakana had to go and eat a fancy dinner instead tut tut, so this does shorten our attempt to two nights this week.

Without further ado, here is Team Titan derping in Coil 1-4, total duration for the run on 10/08/2013 was around 1 hour and 17 minutes, including afk time and learning turn 4 from scratch for Dakana. If all goes well tonight and there is no need to afk etc. I hope to see a <1hr run go go Team Titan!

Turn 1 – Baby ADS

Turn 1 – Caduceus

Turn 2 – Big Momma ADS

Turn 3 – we putzed around and i have a video of it… it’s not very entertaining so /doesn’t bother

Turn 4 – Blietzkreig!

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!

New #FFXIV Exploration Videos are Up!

I will be posting longer videos on content etc later. But I figure there will be lots of other people posting things like that so I’ll just post whatever suits my fancy whenever I feel like it /selfish /nods XD

The game is absolutely beautiful and I find myself stopping to enjoy the scenery during gameplay. Eorzea truly is reborn.

The exploration playlist below is where I will be uploading these short videos highlighting the scenery, flora, fauna and atmosphere of the game.
