I completed the next stage of my AST HW relic weapon:

I finished the collection of the 7 Heavensward bird mounts and obtained the Firebird mount that is the meta mount you can get once you have collected all the birds.

You also get the achievement:

And the title: Tamer of the Undying Flame.

Another house lottery

Introduction into housing in FFXIV


Not the greatest location, but almost on top of the market board and summoning bell.

The summoning bell can be added to your estate, but the market board can’t, so you want to get as close to one as possible location wise with your estate.

Started working on the outside of the plot and doing so, 

got this achievement when making stepping stones:

They added Framer kits retroactively for all the Shadowbringers Tribal Factions and the  Arkasodara in Endwaker . They didn’t have one yet.


Still working on getting to Series Level 25. Currently at Level 10.
