Imagining Time Mage in the world of Final Fantasy XIV

In the first part of my series, I discuss how I would have loved to see Chemist as a healer, as I think it’d spice things up a bit. I also mention how I feel there was a missed opportunity with the skill changes made to jobs in Stormblood. The simplification of the system, in particular. But now it’s time to give some love to the tanks. After all, they didn’t get a new job this expansion either.

Imagining Chemist as a Job in Final Fantasy XIV

Now that Stormblood, Patch 4.0 of Final Fantasy XIV, has been released for just over a month, I’ve had some time to play around with the new jobs, as well the rather major changes made to the pre-existing ones.

As I was playing around with them, it left me wondering what jobs they could include come 5.0. (I know. It’s a long ways until then and 4.0 just dropped, but I can still wonder, can’t I ?)

Reviewing The FFXIV Stormblood Job Actions



Stormblood is introducing red mage; and samurai, both of which are DPS. So, while I think it’s safe to say that queue times for DPS may be atrocious for awhile, what else is happening in the DPS world?

My Thoughts on an Ideal MMORPG

I’ve played MMOs for as long as I’ve had a computer able to run them. Whenever I move to a new MMO though, there are always elements I have gotten used to that I really wish were in the new one. So, I want to talk about what I think would make the closest thing to a perfect MMO. Which, to me at least, is just an MMO in which you can be fully immersed in. Kind of like how Sword art Online is, just minus the harems and terrible plot lines.

What if FFXIV wasn't an MMO

It’s easy to find a reason to turn a normal offline game into an MMO. I mean, who doesn’t want to play with friends in their favorite game? To me, that alone is enough to wish a game was an MMO. So, what possible reason could make an MMO a desirable offline experience? Well that’s what I’ll be exploring in this article.

A Look at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest in Frankfurt

Throughout this series the one thing I can’t seem to escape is Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. I have lost track how many times it has shown up in my articles ever since it was first announced back in October of last year.

A Breath of Fresh Air Among FFXIV - Soul Surrender

Soul Surrender, Patch 3.4 of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, ushered in an array of new features and additions to the game. With numerous quality of life changes; apartments; the new trial “Containment Bay P1T6” where we get to fight Sophia - Goddess of the Warring Triad; and the finale to the “Alexander” raid and storyline; there is definitely a lot of fun to be had this patch. Oh, and let’s not forget about the glamours and new hairstyles. I mean how is this outfit not the most adorable thing ever?

Being a Guild Leader; What I have Learned Both the Easy and the Hard Way

Guilds are usually one of the first things we learn about when starting an adventure in an MMO world. We see everyone in them, with those strange little titles and tags somewhere around their name. If it’s your first time playing an MMO, you may even be confused as to which one is their name. However, after only a short while in this new world, we often soon find a home. Naturally, at the forefront of that home, there is a leader.

Regional Differences of MMOs - A Guide to What MMO is Right For You

From our views on life to the very foods we enjoy, it’s no secret that culture influences us in almost every aspect of life. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that games are also shaped by where we come from. In the MMO world , there are three prominent countries that make MMOs: Korea, Japan, and the “west” (Usually referring to Europe, Canada, and the United States)
