What We've Been Doing:


Massive Loss of Interest in World of Warcraft, lost in the new content, no time to play, no friends playing, Unsubbed all my accounts for the first time in 14 years, no point paying $600 a year for a game that none of my friends have time to meet me in game.  Pulled all my auctions off the AH, between 400 and 1000 auctions to make 8000 gold, no point to even list anything of Old people don’t want gear even if you are giving it away for under 100 gold.  Sold a Huge ogre Cache and another Draenor Pet.

Insane Investment Into Mechwarrior: Mercenaries 5, large DLC created by Pyrana Games, 12 mission Campaign, Crusader Mech, Expanded Mech Lab, Sharp rise in difficulty Level, Enhanced Stability in MultiPlayer, all for a low price of $16 + Tax. 30 to 50 times more players Streaming in 4K, all the graphics and every screen has been polished up in Polygons.  All the Writing on every screen is in True Font Type for 4K screens or Curved Screens.

Quests you should do in FFXIV, other than MSQ and job quests:

Guide:Progression and Level Locked Content

As a Dr. Who fan, this was interesting to see:

AST job is level 90 now, and i can now use a new glam

The next stage of the Anima weapon is finished:

The reward for Everybody’s Darling is this mount:

It’s the Gold version of a key MSQ mount, of which there are 4 different color variants, I believe. Black, Gold, White and Red. The Black and Gold versions are available by playing the game, getting the Black from the MSQ and, as you can see, the Gold version form this achievement. 

Also I painted the roof and windows and door of my house.

Let me introduce you to a feature of FFXIV: Wondrous Tails.

If you are far along enough, you can visit Khloe in Idyllshire and get the book from her.

The book looks like this:

PvP progress:

I reached PvP Rank 29 and Series Level 15 and earned this key:

And it unlocks this mount:

Next job I'm working on is Machinist, currently at level 82.

This is a screenshot of one of her glams i just made:

GrandNagus_ - Twitch I mostly stream FFXIV


Hello everyone,

I swear sometimes I wonder if I'm travelling with the Doctor and having my mind wiped each time I return.  Feels like I blink and then lose a month.  Anyway, here are some audios for this week.  I hope you enjoy them!


Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at Final Fantasy XIV!
