In this weekly column, Jatobi takes a look at the world of FFXIV and the many things going on in the endless adventure.
One of Bradford's biggest regrets is not playing Final Fantasy XIV when it first started years back. He's playing it now and is enamored with the flashy Red Mage class, a Final Fantasy Class he's loved since playing Tactics as a kid.
Rejoice, fellow Eorzeans! Patch 5.1 has finally arrived, and with it has come a bunch of changes, additions, and the absolutely incredible first raid in the Nier Automata collaboration Dark Apocalypse is called The Copied Factory. Unfortunately, I only had a few hours this weekend to spend time in Final Fantasy XIV, but you know I had to run the raid so we discuss it!
In the last Final Fantasy XIV article, we talked about leveling up alternate jobs and other things we could do to fill the time while we wait for Patch 5.1 to drop tomorrow. Did you guys take part in the All Saints’ Wake content?
While we’re all sitting around patiently chomping at the bit for Patch 5.1 to drop, what are you guys doing to pass the time? Jonathan takes us through the side hustle he goes through while waiting for 5.1 to finally release.
A few weeks ago, an article was written that talked about how friendly and helpful the FFXIV community is. While I don’t necessarily disagree with those statements, the community also has a seriously deep issue with toxicity and impatience for new players.
As with all my articles, everything I say reflects my own experiences on my server, your mileage may vary and I’m sure there will be people in the comments vehemently denying what I say. That said, can we talk about Housing for a moment?
The term WoW clone gets thrown around a lot, but does it mean what people think it means, or are they using it as a derogatory comment? Not only have I’ve seen it the past few weeks in the comments of this very column, I see it from my friends as well, and frankly it’s sad. Comments aside, at least we only have Six days left until Head Start!!
More and more recently I’ve seen posts from both new and prospective players asking similar questions; what makes the game so great? How long does it take? Is this game for me? To be completely honest, the answers are quite subjective to each person.
With just 33 days left until the launch of Shadowbringers, Square Enix has ramped up it’s hype train with a bunch of press events and videos showcasing the upcoming expansion and changes they have planned. It’s not even Summer, yet the things are heating up at a rapid pace in preparation for the looming expansion, the question is, however, are you ready?
Over the past week I have been busy working on my questline with Noctis, as well as farming MGP at the Gold Saucer to get the 200k MGP Regalia. Note that prior to this event I have truly never bothered with the Gold Saucer, I had my work cut out for me. Granted it wasn’t exactly hard to amass 200k MGP with the easy Fashion Report’s the last couple weeks but having to learn all the mechanics for Lord of Vermillion and Triple Triad was unique to say the least.
Things are heating up for me, and it’s not just the summer weather causing it! I’ve kept myself busy with a couple things, notably Snake EX, (Big shout out to my guild, pandemonium for allowing me to learn this fight!!!), and the FFXV crossover event. The real meat and potatoes of this week comes at the end of the writeup, so stick around until the end, it’s EPIC!
Hello again my awesome gamer friends, and welcome back to another edition of The Eorzea Prospect! I hope everything has been good with you over the past week, and the game is still holding your attention in these last couple of lag months! Only 79 more days until early access starts for Shadowbringers… HYPE!
