                                     PvP Brawl Gravity Lapse

NEWS:

Microsoft bought ABK.

Great chance taken, given the problems ABK are in.

OW2 and D4 delayed because the buyout could result in a XBox only console launch?

Sources say Microsoft approached ABK in Nov ‘21 and the Q3 earnings call announcing the delay happened on Nov. 2nd

Bobby to leave if and when the deal goes through.

FY 2023 for ABK starts in July and Bobby’s contract ends then too, it would seem.


Why do you get the upgrade as a top level player?

Why don’t the other difficulties not get an equal chance to complete their conduits?


10.0 announcement soon?

Leak and encrypted content could be that.


FFXIV Patch 6.08, third patch of Endwalker implemented on Jan. 25th


What We've Been Doing:



Aprillian

Constraxx

Two Battle for azeroth dungeons on Goblin Rogue Earthen Ring US, Dense sharpening stones, Heirlooms enchanted gear, topping or 2nd place on the meter during most fights, dropping to 3rd on trash pulls because range can engage from a distance to start their dots.  We wiped on 4th boss I think the healer pulled threat and the tank ignored the trash on the boss pull, in any case the healer bailed and we got a group going again in less than 5 minutes.


Exalted with Clan of Darkness doing quests at Darkmoon Faire.  Mining in Silithus to improve classic Blacksmithing with Daprishnah for a faster flight.


Sold 3 arcanite bars for 2400 gold, about 2000 gold profit since I had most of the mats already and the arcane crystals were only 60 gold each.


Sold 5 Goldthorn = 525 gold

Sold 185 Stormvine = 3145 gold


Bought 900 death blossoms (12 gold each)  to start inscription = roughly 14k spent

Spent about 4k on tranquil ink, rare drop.


Tome of Small Sins dropped from a cache, requires 80 renown with Venthyr.


Grand Nagus


Not my intention to say MS bought ABK to fix it.

Sprout video of the week: My FFXIV UI Setup | HUD Tips & Tricks + Job Change Menu!





Got a Orchestrion as a reward for a Retainer Venture, i can have my own music in my apartment now.

Started the second chapter of the Endwalker MSQ. Already love the story of it.

Yoshi-P really knows how to tell a story.

Hello everyone,


Sorry this is so late, it has been a busy month.  I have had some time to play games though!  I have been hooked on FFXIV and have been loving the music, the story, the character development, and the community.  I recently finished the Heavensward campaign on my White Mage and am currently around level 64.  


It has also been so nice to run dungeons with random people and not be faced with multitudes of harassment, criticism, and hate.  Instead most of the FFXIV community is very understanding, kind, and extremely helpful.  They want you to do well and they are more than happy to teach you mechanics if needed.  It has been fantastic for my anxiety!


Today's Blast from the Past is a string of clips from episode 135 through 138 and continues the focus on the first game playing days of Vrishna.  Enjoy!


--Kyle
