Patch 6.4 PART I
What We've Been Doing:
Zenith: The Last City
I got accepted into the Alpha for 1.3 and it’s awesome, that’s all I can say.
Alpha 1 opens for Major Patch 1.3 - Skyward Summit - on March 14th! Features include the Cyber Ninja class, player housing, new lifeskills & more!
Figured out Roles
Zenith: The Lost City
Spatial - Spatial
Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries, shenanigans!
For each class’ Hunting Log finished you get a unique class ring. I got
the one for Gladiator, the class that turns into the job Paladin.
I unlocked a new trial I knew about, but never knew where to go to unlock it.
The Great Hunt. It is different in the way that you can get currency from it
to buy things with, with the other trials you don’t get any loot on normal
and weapons on higher difficulty.
I went on a shopping spree for Orchestrion Rolls. I bought every roll I could that cost less than 1k gil.
I work through the list on the MB and then go to the next world to get the rolls from that MB.
You can do that with all the worlds on your DC and that way you can get to all the good deals on the DC.
It takes a long time, but it’s a good way to get cheap rolls, also if there are MBs where one specific roll is not available you can look at another MB if it’s available there.
A new thing I learned about minions in FFXIV is the emote /handover.
GrandNagus_ - Twitch I mostly stream FFXIV
I seem to have blinked and lost a month or two. Has anyone seen February? How about March, that's almost gone now too.
It is the busy season at school: trimester ending, trimester beginning, and our robotics team doing overtime trying to get something ready for competition at the end of March. I feel like once April starts I'll be on a home stretch with a lot of activities settling down.
Gaming has been all over the place. A bit of FFXIV, a bit of Phasmophobia, lots of Hogwarts Legacy (and yes I am aware of the controversy and have donated an equal amount to the Trevor Project to balance things out), and I have been trying to put in a bit of practice for an upcoming randomizer tournament with Final Fantasy 4 Free Enterprise.
That's the quick-quick summary. I also got another Blast from the Past for today, this one from episode 457. Enjoy!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at Final Fantasy XIV!
