FFXIV: catch all

That reminds me, I guess they didn't talk about female Hrothgar yet either. I assume one of the later fan fests will have more info about those.

Happy tenth anniversary to A Realm Reborn!

I’m debating on coming back for the free 14 days. Anything special happening?

The tenth anniversary event is going on til October (which gets you a cool mount), along with a Moogle tomestone event where you can run various content to earn currency that’s turned in for all kinds of mounts, minions, emotes, housing items, and other cosmetics. Otherwise we’re in a bit of a lull until patch 6.5 comes out in October. A lot of people are coming back to farm content, so queues should be quick.

And there is a lot in the mogstone event.

I celebrated by getting the street set I'd threatened to do as soon as it went on sale. And it did, so.

Came back for my free 14 days and holy f@#k I don't remember how to play my character. Are there any catchup mechanics to help me get back in the rhythm? Of course, I'm close to 50 so maybe I just grind it out and hop onto Red Mage since I'll be learning all over again.

You can run story dungeons with NPCs now, that can be a stress free way to dive back into things. Otherwise run around the world doing FATEs, or just stand in front of a training dummy pressing your buttons until it comes back to you.

Which job were you?

Black mage - though I also have a summoner alt on another server.

I was afraid you'd say that, BLM is pretty infamous for changing its whole play pattern and rotation every 10 levels, so I don't think I'd remember how to play it very well at 50 either. I think generally you want to cast Fire 1 until you get a free Fire 3, and then do Ice 3 when you run out so you go right into the state to get all the MP back. I'd say you can get away with running dungeons with some randos to get your legs back--generally, people are pretty cool about returners, and if they aren't that's on them, why are they getting all in a tizzy over an ARR dungeon?

Starting to get the hang of things again, though I did NPC dungeons to get back in the swing of things. I think I might be up for some roulettes this weekend if anyone is interested.

I've got family visiting this weekend but after that I'll be around if you wanna play!

I can't tell if that's legit, or a fever dream.

It’s a legit fever dream, and I can’t wait

The continuation of the fever dream with the moon bunnies, obviously!

Got omni-90 today! It feels very weird knowing I'm not going to have anything to level until 7.0.

Midgardsormr!

We'll both have to be online at the same time to send the friend request. We chat in Discord, and I believe invites are working again, so try this link and hop into the Final Fantasy 14 thread.

let me do it

My FC is about 20% "Ugh, lame" and 80% "OMG that's my new main!" on Pictomancer.

Not happy about the change to viera noses in the graphical update and the lack of info about hats (other than some comments made recently about making adjustments).

My interest is piqued by pictomancer. I’m curious how it will play. I like the outfit, but we’re probably looking an another expansion of robes and other caster gear designed for BLM.

They do love their A-line outfits. At least the graphics update is gonna make the gear look much nicer. I loved how the job gear looked. The different clothing materials look much more distinct and realistic.

Trying to figure out how realistic it will be to finish Endwalker before Dawntrail. I’m almost done with ARR but realize I have a ways to go.

Depends on how much optional content you do along the way, but it is theoretically doable. You might need to make it your only game for a while, though.

Each expansion is about a full-length game generally, I think? Probably 200 hours or so to catch up?

I am soo much looking forward to Dawntrail

Did anyone else get an email invite to the Golden Saucer for the launch of FF VII remake? I’m just curious if they’ve done these crossover events before and what to expect.

Also, now that I’m in my mid 50s would love to run some roulettes soon with folks.

I got an email invite, but I think it's referencing the Golden Saucer in FF7, which I assume is going to make an appearance in Rebirth.

Anyone want to help me finish the Ultimate Weapon team mission this evening? I'll probably be on around 6-630 tonight PST.
