This week in FFXIV:
What We've Been Doing:
Sold a Medallion of the Legion for 4.6K gold this week and 2 Battie pets for 13k each. Bought a vial of the sands for 52k and sold it for 71k.
Dragon Flight is out of sight!!!
Kurlie dings 70……now who?
@ss has been kicked in PVP
Sit for 15 seconds and look.
Catching pets in Zenith is amazing. But come on, why do you make video players try to throw? If we could throw, we wouldn’t be playing video games!
The agent system is addictive. Did cooking challenges.
Legions in Population: One has been disappointing. Either not enough players or player don’t revive.
I’m back after some time off I needed to recover from a stroke I had on Sep. 11th.
I feel way better and I hope the last few issues will resolve themself soon.
Overall I’m really lucky it turned out the way it did.
What I can say is that if a friend or loved one feels or acts different, not normal, don’t take it lightly. Had I not been aware of the risk, the potential of what the symptoms were pointing at, I might not have gotten away with it as well as I did.
WoW bringing back “systems” - a post on the MMO-Champion forum.
I think WoW can make systems, it’s just gotta be the right ones.
Preach interviewed devs and they basically said had they known artifacts would have been the hit they where, they’d have kept them, but since they had developed and worked on azerite armor and that entire system for 2 years they couldn’t just scrap that system and the work hours tied to it.
What do we learn from this:
Make the right type of systems, aka had artifacts been a system that could have coexisted with azerite armor, all would have been good for the artifacts.
How you do that doesn’t matter, if it’s evergreen, purely cosmetic content, it doesn’t really matter in the end.
In case of the AP systems it did matter, since one power system was replaced by another, but it’s on the devs to create the systems that can survive the end of an expansion and become evergreen.
Torgast can be one such system, or it could have been. The Mage Tower could have been, but in my opinion, it’s too small scale to work, but it’s a good try to bring it back.
Make dragonriding evergreen and let the player use it game wide, once 10.0 content has been completed. Until then it should only be usable on the Dragon Isle.
Not a big issue, I believe. And once it’s unlocked on the first character, make the world wide unlock account wide.
Just got the Reaper Job to 90.
Sold a chest piece for over 400k gil, never thought it would sell, but it did, really happy with that.
I've got audios for you this week! I did a little blurb about my gaming so far and I have another Blast from the Past coming to you from episode 454. Enjoy!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at Final Fantasy XIV!
