What We've Been Doing:
Flying Woes, questing dilemmas, the extra hurdle that is 9.0 covenant questline and Finally the Primus Returns in Chains of Domination after weeks of grinding quests on the ground of a Protection Paladin.
The Gears of War are upon us, lots of catchup mechanisms put into the game for people who grind Dungeons, World Bosses, Fated LFR. Ilvl varies greatly for the drops, in dungeons you can get 236 Loot for timewalking, 249 Loot for heroic, 265 Loot for fated LFR, 272 Loot for the last boss of the Fated LFR, 278 or 285 for Fated World Boss. I can see that you will be able to start the questing experience in Dragonflight even with green gear from world quest, But if you have a few hours to farm dungeons and can get to 230 iLvl you can queue for 2 LFR at a time, the queue for DPS is about an hour, the LFR is more damage intensive than normal, so bring potions (5 gold each), flasks (500 gold each), potions of spectral agility strength or intelligence 60 to 120 gold each for 190 buff to your main stats for 25 seconds, buy feasts from the AH even if you don’t know how to cook yourself, the feasts cost about 11 gold each.
Purchased Dragonflight for my main account Epic Version 128$ CAD including Tax, and a 6 month subscription recurring payment 109$ CAD to assure blizzard that my 1 month of bonus game time will not go to waste ( the subscription is refunded to you if you already have an ongoing subscription payment ongoing ).
Carefully leveled Tauren priest to get Stay Classy Achievement on Blackrock, i will take a few days to complete this guild achievement and grant access to tab vault #8.
Doing World Quests for Gold or Anima first, with LFR and the weekly do 20 world quests i get about 4000 to 7000 anima for my 4 max level characters. My druid unlocked all level 3 building upgrades so he gets 2 bonus anima items per world quests. 40,000 anima was required to unlock tier 3 of the covenant hall. 750 anima for doing 20 world quest and 500 rep for a covenant of your choosing or more anima if you want that 175 anima.
Grand Nagus is in Hamburg for the second week, we hope to have him back soon.
Oops, I forgot to send part 2 last week. Sorry about that! School is back on and everything has been crazy busy as I try to remember how I did everything.
Have not really done anything in FFXIV for the past two weeks, only thing I have done is check my weekly Jumbo Cractpot and put in three new numbers. No big winner here. I have been spending most of my free time practicing and participating in the Zemus Zone 5 tournament put on by the randomizer community Final Fantasy 4 Free Enterprise. I'm not out of the tournament yet and just won my last match and have gone further in the tournament than I have in past years. Scary and excited!
Anyway here's part 2 of episode 451. Enjoy!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at Final Fantasy XIV!
