    Thanks. Unfortunately I'm already a LVL 50 Dark Knight and have a friend in the mid-30s as a White Mage. I'm sorry.

    Just finished Heavensward's main scenario. I recommend doing the Heavensward quest totally blind. There aren't any mechanics which you have not seen before. Just look and react. You're definitely going to have a good time with this as your first-time experience.

    Seriously, what an end.

    I always wondered why the fanbase dismiss so much the idea of a MMOFF as not being a FFgame ?

    Thanks for the heads up! I have been absolutely busy the last month or two I don't even have time to download the extension pack, despite having early access to everything. This week will be the week when I can dive back in, definitely going to try what you said! I can't wait. Let's discuss more after :D

    Final Fantasy XIV is hands down the BEST Final Fantasy game I've played in a long time.

    I think you are not using the correct words, FFXIVARR/[Insert expansion here] should be there instead.

    The title of the game on my PS4 doesn't have 'A Realm Reborn' anymore ever since Heavensward launched. It's just 'Final Fantasy XIV' for the app and 'Final Fantasy XIV Online' for the launcher.

    Make sure you brush up on your FFVII summons ;) At least one of them is going to be referenced in the game at some point.

    I think the relaunch of FFXIV: A Realm Reborn was so successful most people forgotten about 1.0 already. So I think it's a smart move for them to change the name to FFXIV Online now, sort of like FFXI Online. Create less confusion, and slowly phasing out the bad memories.

    Between you and @LeonBlade, you guys are making it very difficult for me not able to start the game yet. This weekend is looking to be packed again... I might have to schedule time on weekdays... I can't believe I am THIS busy.

    Yep. A few people have told me that 1.0 did eventually turn into a good game once things got patched out. It was just that the name was too tarnished for anyone to really come back to it. Apparently combat was a lot more intricate back then, I wouldn't know for sure lol
    Haha. Hope everything settles down for you. You're making me feel bad for slaving away at this game. I'm almost prepared for Alexander. Then again I could be over prepared at this point...

    It did. As a matter of fact, there are still part of 1.0 I love a lot. The graphic was honestly the prettiest thing, but also major flawed. But I really mis the running motion, etc. Combat was very fun back then (once it was fixed... sort of), I main'ed Warrior back then and it was a completely different job it felt like.

    Things are settling down now. But as a 36 years old single guy, I'm also trying to find a mate, and sort of seeing a new guy as well, so I diverted a bit of time for him instead of my gaming life. Now, if he can just go to bed earlier... :D

    Working my way through Heavensward finally and having a blast. Will post about my comments when I'm done with the main story quest... but as I was looking for reviews and comments today, I came across this...



    According to the description, over 200 people on Excalibur participated in this... Gosh, I love nerds.

    So, I've been gone for a while on XIV mostly because I've been busy in real life. Happy to say I've been back for over a week and finally caught up with at least the main story quests! What a great expansion pack Heavensward was!

    Anyway, as I was looking for a photo of the Deputy Delivery Moogle, I found this:

    Isn't it gorgeous? I contacted the maker, fellow Balmung resident Lahu Foraz and see if he/she is still making it! I might be one step closer to become a moggle in real life! :D

    music is pretty hype as always, and finally the story will move us to the expansion.

    I very much love FFXIV, the problem is, not many people on here do. Kagari and I both raid, I know DrBretto plays but I'm not sure how often, and there might be a few others.

    Trying to clear A8S before the patch, we got to the final phase with J-Storm before we hit the enrage timer with 4% left to go. Hoping to get the clear here soon as a great final hurrah into patch 3.4 and the final raid tier before the expansion.

    Sophia's theme is fucking amazing, I love how expansive the new Deep Dungeon looks, and looking forward to the difficulty. I think this could act as the hard mode dungeons that people want if they do it right. Loads of QoL stuff that's awesome and I just can't wait.

    Each patch trailer just gets better and better. Also, waiting for my check to clear in the bank so I can get my plane tickets as I'm going to the FFXIV fan festival in October.

    I haven't played in a while. It's a great game, but I have a hard time not seeing the MMO aspects for the time wasters they are anymore (saying more about MMO's in general than FFXIV, I have MMO'd since EQ) and I just can't stick with it for very long anymore. I do break down and buy a month here and there and catch up on the story, though.

    that's great to hear, XIV is one of my favorite titles of the franchise, and that comes from one which barely played MMOs. I think if ppl gave it a try they would fall in love with the world, ost and overall storyline.

    have fun, it will be amazing that's for sure.

    I generally play two months after a new patch and then it's break time.

    I´m really interested in playing XIV, I really want with dire passion >.> , I just don´t have a PS4 (I heard Yoshida saying something like "we can´t guarantee that we´ll keep supporting PS3 in the long term") or a decent PC to run it, plus I´m pretty tight on cash until I can get a job.
