The Titan diaries

Yesterday some nice people helped me out to finally beat Titan! ^_^

Just a few minutes after that I got my relic weapon and I even had enough Tomestones of Mythology to make it +1.
And thats my little baby! I had only Ifrits' weapon before, so the upgrade was quite huge for me. So let's see what lies ahead now. I'd love to run The Binding Coil of Bahamut with my Free Company soon, specially for the story!

Thanks again to everyone who helped me!

Titan-Crysis

The past few days me and my group tried to kill Titan. Yesterday we got him to 20% and today we all want him to die!
Titan is by far the hardest boss in the game that I have met so far. First of all you have to get used to the small delay - sometimes you'll get hit even though you're not in one of his aoe circles on your screen. After some practise you can adapt to that "little" problem though. But it's still hard. You'll have to get used to his patterns and you'll have to find a group which is willing to progress together. We wiped a lot, but day after day we were doing better.

Anyway...

Titan I hate you. <3
See you next time!

1 month of fun

What's up everyone?

It's been one month now since I created Kou Ji and I had a lot of fun playing and roaming around in Eorzea. I thought that I'm going to show you the progress I made during this month and I will continue to do so in the next months as well.

Progress first month

As you can see - my little Gladiator is about to become a Paladin soon! Can't wait to get 50 with my Tank, even though I suck at tanking. Haha! Anyway, it's been fun to farm FATEs with little Winston. Meanwhile I was taking tonns of screenshots. I really love the different world map designs.



See you next time!

Relic-Quest and Tomestone farming

Those days I went quite far with my relic quest. I bought the weapon and the materia, killed Chimera and Hydra, Ifrit and Garuda. The Titan has to wait a bit I guess, because the people in my FC (including me of course) don't have enough gear to beat him yet.

That's why I'm farming tomestones now, trying to get the Darklight gear (going for the jewels for now) and maximize my damage output. Usually I don't enjoy farming, but with my FC it's been a lot of fun to do some Amdapor Keep and Castrum Meridianum runs to get Tomestones of Philosophy.

Already got 2 pieces (would have been 3, but I went to buy the pets first...xD):
It was a nice upgrade to the jewels I had before.

I don't regret to buy the Minions, they are really adorable. Check them out in case you haven't seen them yet:

The Fledgling Dodo became my favourite Minion. I just love his hurr durr derp derp looks!

The Dust Bunny <3 really cute when he drops his stone!

And last but not least: The Wide-eyed Fawn. I don't like this one too much, I always feel the urge to kick it... Still, it's cute, somehow.

Beach-Event with my Free Company

I have to say that I'm starting to like the FC that I joined some days ago. At start they seemed a bit weird, but now I like to hang around with them. We even had a funny beach event going and I made tonns of nice screenshots.
 
It was really a lot of fun, thanks guys!

Dungeon ragequit~

Hello my fellow Eorzeans!

How have you been? I had a lot of fun playing through the awesome storyline and getting my Magitek mount.
It looks awesome, but I prefer to ride through Eorzea on Winston's back. I even bought my little fella three new bardings and now he has a mix between all of them:
After finishing hunting log #3 for my Grand Company (Immortal Flames), I decided to swap over to the Twin Adder in Gridania and upgrade my ranks there. However, I didn't know that you can only swap GCs once in 30 days, but it doesn't matter too much I guess.

The first thing I did after dinging 50 was killing Ifrit (HM). It's a really funny fight and on my third try it finally dropped:

My little Book! :D
Some things, however, didn't please me too much. If you are playing a dps and don't have a friend that plays neither healer or tank you'll have to wait ages to get the duty finder pop. Then, after let's say 1 1/2 hours, you finally manage to get into the dungeon and then some idiot decides to leave after not even trying to keep up a good fight, just because another one said "Hi, first time for me!". About 10 seconds later the whole group left, leaving me and the new dude behind. Awesome! Nice attitude of those players, wth is wrong with those crybabies in FFXIV?

Oh well, I'm leveling a small tank by myself now. Can't decide which one though - Warrior looks cooler but everyone tells me to go for Paladin!

Enjoying the errors

Yo, what's up guys?

It's been a while since my last post, but I was quite busy irl and played during my free time of course. Well, at least if the server let me log in I mean...

I think many of you made a new "friend" during the launch: Error 1017.
This error is one of the most annoying things I've experienced during a MMO launch... I mean wow, if they would have made a good queue system there wouldn't be any problem, but as it is now it's just simply horrible. I hope they manage to fix it, because it starts to be really frustrating. Tomorrow will be 10 hours of maintenance, but I got a bad feeling and I'm sure they won't be able to fix it.

However, during the time I could play I made some nice progress. My main class, the arcanist (or better my summoner? :D) is currently level 44. I also crafted a lot, because crafting in FFXIV is really a lot of fun and you can make a lot of money.
I'm summoner, dah!
Me and my friend~... We are playing together since level 1.
My main goal was to find all the minions that you could get by now, and I already got a nice amount of them in my little list. I love all the minions, they are really adorable. Sadly there is no Mog yet, I hope they'll change that! Who wouldn't want a cute white fella flying behind him with his big bom-bom on his head?!

That's my favourite pet: The baby bun! It's lovely and adorable and it makes me want to poke it. =^.^=
Oh well, after dc'ing I'm not able to log back into the game, so I'll call it a day and take a rest!

Good night then, see you around. ZzZz...
