On Blue Mage & FFXIV’s Limited Jobs

In my summary of the Shadowbringers announcement from this year’s North American FFXIV Fan Festival, I only really touched briefly on my own thoughts. If you follow me on Twitter, though, you probably know that I’m rather frustrated by the way Blue Mage will be implemented in the game come Patch 4.5. My thoughts on the […]

Various things kept me from being able to really collect proper first impressions for Pagos, which was initially such a mess that it turned out I didn’t miss a whole lot.

Thoughts on Eureka Pagos

In general, the FFXIV community likes things to be familiar, and you can’t really blame them. Ever since A Realm Reborn, the developers have played it safe, with very little in the way of changes to both the game’s core structure but also in the finer details.

5.0 Job Speculation!

Mog Station Review: Faerie Tale Princess’s Attire

It’s that time again! This week brought two new sets to the FFXIV Mog Station, one each for male and female characters: Faerie Tale Attire sets for Princes and Princess’s. The sets could have come right out of a Cinderella styled Disney animated feature even if they feel a bit out of place in FFXIV‘s more cosmopolitan fantasy. As usual, […]

Mog Station Review: Angelic Attire

We all knew this one was coming, so I’ll skip the length preamble this time and get right into my review of the new Angelic Attire from FFXIV‘s Mog Station. This review is essentially part two of a pair, and if you’re so inclined, you can also check out my review of the other, companion […]
