Logged in this morning to take a look at “The Rising”, FFXIV’s Second Anniversary since the realm was reborn. I picked up the seasonal quest and after a normal “FATE” involvement, and what I suspect to be some flavored text giving small hints towards to what is coming up in the near future, I returned to Uldah to speak with the Wandering Minstrel, and the other NPC that looks like Yoshi-P’s actual blackmage character.
After a bit of running around to talk to different NPC’s, I ended up being teleported to the best part of the questline.
I found myself in what appeared to be the “Rolling Stones” building in Mor ‘Dhona… only in a parallel universe.. on the “18th floor”.
It was awesome to basically be put in a virtual FFXIV’s workspace, I loved all the familiar artwork posted about!
To go in and be able to interact with NPC’s representing the actual FFXIV dev’s was pretty cool. ^^
It was neat, and I kinda didn’t want to leave, which made it nice when once I did leave, that The Wandering Minstrel revealed he’d be hanging around Ul’dah for the next short while (till the end of the event) and that us players could talk to him to be transported back again should we desire.
Really loving my new minions from The Rising event.. Lady Iceheart
In other news…. a quick update..
I’ve been doing Alexander Savage with a nice group and have been enjoying my time so far. We’ve gotten past Faust and to the part with the resin line on Floor 1. Sadly its sounding like schedules are going to begin being an issue unfortunately, but I had fun while it lasted. They are an easygoing group of skilled players. I’ll miss running with them if it doesn’t end up working out.
Here is just a random picture I took when Nicos and I were taking a break from a dungeon run and leveling. Don’t we look smart in our “Sherlock” gear? ^^
Its nice to have Sunny back on our server at the moment 🙂 Here he’s showing off his Astrologian spell.. really jealous… I’ve wanted that skill since Y’shtola originally cast it! Lightly working on Astrologian, I’m 53 now. They added new buffs to the class, helping its potency be more on par with the other healers, so I’m happier at the thought of working on it again.
Here is a great one Sunny got of us (in his Lala form)
Here we are with Miga and Dys
I got my Whitemage and Bard both to level 60 ~
Here is an “underwater” pic in Neverreap… kinda liked it.. sometimes I stand in it despite the small debuff. LOL
Did the FATE that gives the halfbarding
Just throwing this in here… Went to the Beach for a few days, and Blind bought me this…. Don’t Blink!!
