Eureka Pyros First Impressions

This time around, I’ve been able to dive into FFXIV‘s latest Eureka chapter, Pyros, from the get-go. 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. Pagos was quickly patched in some pretty […]

A Guide to Glamour in FFXIV

Most of the time, when I get a request from Patrons, I’m asked to put together a new glamour, but returning player and Patron Helena wanted to see a breakdown of how glamour works in the game now. It’s changed a lot since it was first added during A Realm Reborn, after all, and it can be […]

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. If you’ve done a Dungeon in FFXIV, you have a pretty good […]

5.0 Job Speculation!

For the lead-up to the announcement of Stormblood, I waited to talk about my real thoughts for the expansion until we were much closer to that year’s FanFest, but things are different this around. There have been some purported leaks from the development side of FFXIV, and included in those leaks are what may be the new […]

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 […]

Mog Station Review: Demonic Attire

’tis the season for Mog Station additions, from the looks of it. It was only a couple of weeks ago that we got the Nezha Lady’s Attire, and now we have two more sets: Angelic and Demonic Attire. As has often been the case with these sets brought over from other versions of the game, these two […]

Mog Station Review: Nezha Lady’s Attire

When I last reviewed a Mog Station item, it really seemed like Square Enix was ramping up the number of cash shop additions, but after that things slowed down a bit. While we did get a pair of new Carbuncle outfits not long after, while I was without a PC (which is why I never […]

Further Thoughts on Eureka: Anemos

We’ve had the first chapter of Eureka in FFXIV for a little over a month now, and for most of that month, it’s been the main thing I’ve done in game. I’ve finished up complete sets of Anemos gear and weapons for Monk, Ninja, and Red Mage, with future Protean Crystals probably going toward glamour selections for […]

Eureka Anemos First Impressions

As much as I play FFXIV, it might come as a surprise that I don’t actually care much for its core gameplay. I dislike its global cooldown-centered combat system, and I like the now traditional safety dance style of encounter design even less. I’ve always preferred RPGs to action games because of their slower pace, so […]
