Final Fantasy XIV ~ Eorzea

Eorzea Recap

Ever since my posts, we’ve gone quite far in Final Fantasy XIV, and we’ve explored Eorzea heavily. Heavensward is around the corner, and then Stormblood, which is apparently when we’ll leave Eorzea, if only temporarily.

We’ve also joined a Free Company, it’s unfortunately small, so there’s not really much in activity. I’m kind of hoping we’d get new recruits applying somehow, but it’s hard to think of how. I’m almost tempted to ask for a temporary raise in position so I can try doing recruitment.

I feel like I should’ve just tried to make our own Free Company, one specifically for new adventurers looking for a safe haven from all the spam invites. Something they can feel 0 attachment to and leave, or help grow/be a part of.

Eorzea [Day 6 & 7]

The 6th day was a surprise. The date was June 7 2017, and I had only woken up via phone call, except when I was woken up, it was over the prospect of Final Fantasy XIV – registration. I had a terrible sleep and required an extra hour from that point.
I was sleepy and didn’t really realize it, but we’d cancel our hang-out day and play FF14, as actual players.
Thus, I woke up an hour later after that, and when I awoke, I found my account activated and then some. I was somewhat dazed after waking up. Thinking “what did I get into?”

Day 6 – We began our play session at practically 7PM.
We blend into June 8, until 5AM.
Day 7 We then resumed on June 8, and bled into June 9.
We played practically 24 hours in only 2 days. Unhealthy, very much! So very unhealthies!!

Day 6 summary – The 6th day was extensive game-play, almost 12 hours straight! This day saw us getting retainers! I also learned about macros.

The 7th day saw us doing quite a number of things. We joined a Grand Company, and got our personal Chocobos! Just as bad as, actually, worse than the 6th day, we both over-played. Normally I play far late into the game doing misc. things.
We both learned macros!

Because of how we’ve been playing, I’ve gotten my time mixed up and didn’t realize much. We’ve been going nuts with the game.

Eorzea Day 5 Bonus Pictures

I want to show off some more of Eorzea’s beauty, so here.

Maybe the Free Trial’s all we’ll need, maybe we’ll want/need more. Only time and adventuring will tell, for what’s beyond our trial may be more trials. We know not.

It’s a beautiful game and beautiful world though, and it’s a healthy MMO, to boot. One doesn’t even need to play constantly. We may even stop after 3 months if we cap off depending. Or we’ll just duo things and join randoms/become good enough to join randoms and aim for success. I dunno.

Regardless of choices, that doesn’t change the beauty one can find. In the Free Trial alone, you can experience much. It’s a shame with how restrictive they are on it, and it’s a bit more of a shame that the free trial and playing capabilities expire once you go “full”.
It’s kind of unfair how one can progress and do a lot of crazy things at no expense.

The best advice I can give anyone interested is… Free Trial for a bit, stretch out your trial time as much as you can, find a comfortable place, and then pay. It’s an investment that you can always return to after that, but while it’s free, do what you can/make of it what you will. Especially those who can’t afford to actually pay for it, you’re still getting an amazing experience and can still do things with others, at least, up until LV 35. You’re only 15, 25, and 35 shy of the level cap.

Entering Eorzea [Day 1 & Day 2]

I’ve decided to write up our latest activities. Unfortunately, it’s really early/late, and my brain and eyes are mlkasflj. Anyone who used to play games for hours on end but haven’t, should recall such feelings. I haven’t felt this in years, even during PSO2 we didn’t do as much lamksfasfh type of things.

So, the la;ksfjlasf story begins with…
