So the 2.1 patch for FFXIV dropped on December 17th as was promised. The first thing I noticed when logging in was the sheer amount of people. Being on Masamune, our server is always a busy place, however today was even busier with all the bustling excitement over all the new content! 🙂
So one of the first things I did, was try to unlock Crystal Tower as it was the content I was most excited about. The first few days however the FATE’s involved were a bit bugged, and I didn’t have as much time to try and get it done because it was during the work week.
So because of that, the first thing I ended up opening was the “Aesthetician”… that word is hard for me to say.. so I end up calling the pink haired gentleman a barber instead. I only say it when he’s not in the room… I’m sure the term “barber” would somehow make him feel degraded, but its easier to say, and gets the point across.
To my surprise, the long pigtail hairstyle, which I didn’t actually tend to like before when I’d seen it on other races, actually looks pretty decent on a lalafell. I paid my gil and decided Katella was older now, and so it made sense that her hair had grown as she had. Now she looks kinda like a doll. 😉 I didn’t change the hair color, or anything else. I might go back eventually, but I’m kinda liking the look right now.
I wasn’t the only one who changed my hair.. lots of new do’s all around. Here is a picture of Rainie with their own new do!
I picked up the new dailies for the Sylphs and Amalj’aa. I’m actually liking having something else to level my scholar with other than leves and FATEs. Plus I get to ride some fun new mounts occasionally. 🙂
Here is a close up I got of Eos, when I was hiding from some Ziz’s.
Mini Ninja took me around, and was able to do the quest for the new Coerl Kitten and Wolf Pup, they are so cute, but their stories are kinda sad.. 😦
We put together three parties from Distant World to try Crystal Tower, and we were able to run it all together! It was so much fun! I was in team A this time around and it was Nicos, Rainie, Merikosum, Zoe, Yumi Hibiki, Euramon, Epee and me. This is us when we first entered. ^^
Here is a video of the screenshots I got during that run! It was a blast! I can’t wait to do it again!
