Don’t worry guys: I’ll find things I hate and write about those again. That hasn’t gone away! I have definitely noticed that views increase the more I hate and dislike something, so I’ll try to keep a nice balance. But today, we’re talking about something I love a lot! Final Fantasy XIV. I played since the original, with a level 30 BLM still on one of the legacy servers. I also wrote an article or two on the game, and even planned on writing a monthly column on it before work and school piled up, preventing that from occurring. I’m definitely considering a weekly or monthly column though, where I discuss what I’m doing in game, things that are interesting or horrible in equal amounts, because no game is perfect. But if I’m a mark for any company, it’s Square-Enix.
So, I’m back! Back to Final Fantasy XIV. I have a new character on Malboro [Mizuno Cyan, don’t judge me], and on Friday I’ll have my main, a 60 WHM on Behemoth to play with some college friends. My co-workers play on another server which I won’t divulge, but if you are looking for someone friendly to play with. . . maybe you should pick someone else. I kid, I kid. The game is still oh so gorgeous, and there are things I love! Adding repeatable quests for people who level alts. Thank you, thank you. Thank you. But there are things that make me exceptionally cross. This was my own fault, but it happened, and I’m still pissed about it. I went to transfer servers, but I picked the wrong one. That’s my fault. I’m upset that I have to re-transfer and there’s nothing they could do about it, but it did definitely happen.
See? I found things to be mad about! OH. AND ONE MORE THING. I took some time off from the game for reasons. I was a part of a Free Company on Gilgamesh with some close friends, who did not inform me they were going to boot me for inactivity. What they also didn’t warn me about is that the Resident Caretaker would only hold housing items for x amount of time. Square-Enix, please, I entreat you, change this! Or at least consider it! I lost eight to ten million gil worth of stuff [depending on the market] that I don’t know if I’ll have the gumption to farm up or acquire again. My body temperature probably went up at least five degrees, skin turning crimson with discontent. These aside, it’s a gorgeous game. I’m back, hopefully to stay! I have so much stuff to catch up on. I also would love some manner of doing content cross-server, but not a server merge. Just the cross-server instances with friends would be really quite lovely. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some questing to do. . .
