Updates and pictures

It's been rather quiet on the blogosphere of late. Maybe it's because of the holidays, maybe it's because a lot of people quit playing Wildstar (myself included) or maybe it's just because there is nothing to blog about.
I myself fall into the last category. Well not entirely. I have tons and tons of things to blog about, but I just can't seem to get it in writing.

Right now however I have achieved a lot of things on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn that I just HAVE to share it with everyone.

First off: my static Coil group has made it to turn 9. Or the Second Coil of Bahamut Turn 4, whatever tickles your pickle. Unfortunately I wasn't there for our first turn 6 clear, but I am there on the kill screens of the turn 7 and turn 8 kills.
On the turn 7 picture I'm standing to the far right, on the turn 8 one I'm standing on the far left. And no I'm not the big burly Roegadyn ;)



I'm very proud that my team has come this far. We are currently competing over the first turn 9 clear in our Free Company with another coil group and we hope and pray that we get it first. But for that we will need some more gear...

Speaking of gear, my Animus bow is coming along nicely, I'm currently working on book 7/9 and I hope to be finished next week. After that the big grind for Novus begins, but I'll comment about that in another post.


Speaking of gear. I have been having fun with some glamours to make my character stand out among the crowd (see above picture). You need to see glamours as a sort of transmog from WoW but a bit different. Luckily for me one of the healers in my coil group is a master crafter and had an awesome looking chestpiece "lying around". Mind you this chestpiece is worth 1 million gil on the Marketboard so I was kind of stunned he just gave it to me. For reference, it's the Augmented Saurian Tabard of Aiming and for anyone who plays endgame, you know how ridiculously expensive this thing is as normal quality... This one is high quality. Anyway, I do believe Sandrian looks awesome in this look so I think I'll keep her this way for a while.

Another interesting thing that I did was finally bring Sarella over from Shiva. And turn her into a Hyur because having two Miqo'tes is kind of meh.
I've been mostly using her as Botanist so far, currently level 31, but main Monk on her, a class that I thoroughly enjoy. I'm currently in what I believe a very sexy gearset for botanist so ofcourse I had to share this with you guys. The set that you see here is one that I crafted myself on Sandrian and I'm damn proud of it!


For the near future I hope to level Sarella to level 50 botanisht and show off that gear and clear turn 9 and get my Animus weapon on Sandrian. Which I ofcourse will show off aswell.
I can't make any promises about blogging more, but I will try to put an update of my activities every now and then.

  1. Looks like you're having fun. :) I'm doing plenty for multiple blogs worth of content I just haven't had the want to write and blog so I'm taking it easy til I'm ready. Have forced myself before with very bad results, so I salute those who can!

    I kinda miss FFXIV just waiting for something more to do before I consider it. Personal housing would be great. I tried to come back on the free weekend but I'd removed the authenticator from my phone and it seemed to big a polava to sort it out so I could log in so I didn't bother. One day. ^^

    1. Yeah I found my home on FFXIV. Nice guild, nice static raid group and tons of stuff to do.

      We actually have personal rooms in the guild house right now, I'll do a post on that later. Personal housing is due in one of the next patches.
      I'll probably write about Diablo III a bit when the seasons start aswell.

    2. That's awesome. :) My home is with my Rift guild. Though I play other stuff, they're my main group of peeps to play alongside. <3
