Riiko’s blog – the promotional video by Visgal

After a disappointing discussion in LS, it was clear that some people didn’t know that I had a FFXIV blog for several years now. It was decided that I needed a 4 second promotional video.

Visgal created it.

Thank you, Vis! ö.ö I’m sure, people are aware of my blog now and the visitor numbers will increase! ò.óV


Becoming a Diva when you’re hungry?

Some say, you become a Diva when you’re hungry.

I say, it’s not at all like that for me.

I don’t become a Diva when I’m hungry.

I become a monster.

And people say, they fear me.

Only food can appease the wrath of the hungry monster.

Let me tell you, I’m hungry quite often.

Make sure to always have some tasty food with you so that whenever the monster awakens, you can feed it and it doesn’t devour you in its hunger.

Mag, the Shapeshifter becomes an Au Ra

It was a normal day, or so I thought.

It was the day when Mag became a really sinister but very hot Au Ra.

See for yourself:

2015-07-02 Mag Au Ra 01

We leveled, we traveled, we fought, I drooled.

2015-07-02 Mag Au Ra 03

Super handsomeness by my side felt really nice.

2015-07-02 Mag Au Ra 02

When suddenly, a few days later.

Excuse me, who are you, miss?!

2015-07-02 Mag Au Ra 04

It was Mag.

I know.

Mag was still pretty hot but different hot, if you know what I mean.

But then, Mag transformed again. It was in Alex Turn 1.

Out of nowhere, Mag shrank in size and became SMALLER THAN ME!

2015-07-28 Alex Happenings 01

Ever since, Mag had to endure the horrors of being small like a Lala while still being super skinny and vulnerable – no protective fat-layer protecting your body.

It was a hard time for Mag, and I’m not sure if he will ever recover…

Please note: If you’re actually playing with us, you will know that Mag has since then become a Catgirl, Catboy and is now a Lalafell boy. This shows how the blog is many weeks behind the actual happenings in Eorzea >.<;; There is just too much to tell! And mag is changing races on what feels like a bi-weekly basis x_x

Bismarck Ex: Deathventures

In the Rising Stones, there was some really suspicious robed child waiting for me, trying to sell me some battle access. Just like Urianger used to do in the Waking sands.

I was like: Wow, kid, step back!!

That was when Urianger joined and explained, that this was his child which was following in his footsteps. It was no shady person at all, so I should trust that lil rascal.

2015-06-30 Bismarck Ex 01

Fine, I accepted the challenge.

It was an extremely hard fight against Bismarck.

2015-07-11 Bismarck Ex 01

You thought the fight you had experienced before was hard? lolnope, it wasn’t.

This was the real deal.

“Small mistake, big wipe” is the motto of this one.

Attacking the wrong enemy? Take damage and die.

Step into one of the hundred AOEs that occur? Take damage.

Tank swap necessary but you were too slow? Wipe the group with AOEs.

See weather wrong? Get kicked off or die or wipe. Or all of it.

Not enough DPS? Wipe.

Healers don’t help with DPS? Maybe they are busy keeping everyone alive who steps into AOEs or attacks the wrong enemy and gets smashed thanks to that.

2015-07-11 Bismarck Ex 02

We had a solid and reliable group. It couldn’t go wrong, right?

Moar Death.

2015-07-25 Bismarck Ex Death 01

It was Akhen who had made a pact with the Vanu Vanu.

They killed everyone but him.

He had betrayed all of us, sold our souls to the Vanu birdies! He had even betrayed Nef, his own wife!!

But it turned out, he had done it for the greater good: Thanks to this secret pact, we defeated Bismarck.

2015-07-11 Bismarck Ex 04

So with this pact, we managed to beat this awful Primal and never had to face him again.


Except to help our fellow LS mates to beat him up, too…

Dark times are about to come. Little do they know: They will only win if they sell their souls to the Vanu Vanu…

(It wasn’t actually like that but it sounded like much more fun to tell it like that… Also, that kid doesn’t seem to be Urianger’s son, but spreading rumors is just too much fun to not mention that thought!)

Alexander: No Cheese for the Illuminati

The battle continued.

The Au Ra and Roundox were super good battle buddies since the Au Ra Lady blew up the Illuminati enemies.

2015-07-08 Alexander 18

We proceeded deeper into Alex.

2015-07-08 Alexander 19

We found some adorable Gobmachines that were steerable. I knew I HAD to get one!

2015-07-08 Alexander 20

Unfortunately, the Illuminati Goblins protected them well. They placed bombs everywhere.

When dealing with bombs, it’s most important thing is to note that bombs hit everyone when they explode.

2015-07-08 Alexander 21

The Illuminati were so caught up in the battle that they blew themselves up in the end. <.<;

2015-07-08 Alexander 22

We were like….

That was really smart…. NOT.

2015-07-08 Alexander 23

Roundox felt really comfortable in Alex. She wanted to live there one day and collect treasures day and night.

2015-07-08 Alexander 24

When suddenly, we found out that a spy was observing our actions, pretending to be one of our Goblins and not an Illuminati.

2015-07-08 Alexander 25

We followed the spy!

2015-07-08 Alexander 26

A giant watery thing blocked our way. It took over different forms. Sometimes, it transformed into a giant hand. Sometimes into a giant Magatsu.

2015-07-08 Alexander 27

We defeated that thing and caught up to the spy. But before we could question him, the Illuminati just killed him! ;o;

How could they!

2015-07-08 Alexander 28

We searched the body and found a map to the core of Alex!

2015-07-08 Alexander 29

There, we faces a mini version of Alex that attacked us quite heavily.

2015-07-08 Alexander 30

It randomly sent a few of us into quarantine, on this platforms, where evil enemies were awaiting those who got quarantined.

When a fight against this boss went really bad, also healers would get quarantined. This happened to me once in my career of WHM Alex fights.

2015-07-08 Alexander 44

I kinda looked pretty epic how everyone died even though they were quarantined…

2015-07-08 Alexander 45

Anyway, in the end, the boss is defeated and victory is always mine.

Long live the Lalafell – and their subordinates.

We entered the place where the core was located but the Illuminati boss appeared!

2015-07-08 Alexander 31

We seemed to not care about this as the Au Ra girl climbed on the core and opened it o.o;

Inside, there was some huge power supply, but it didn’t seem to be some kind of treasure anyone was looking for.

What were we looking for? O.ô

2015-07-08 Alexander 32

Anyway, the Illuminati boss told us, he would get revenge on inviading his place and for not handing him the cheese recipe! Then, he escaped with his cat pet.

2015-07-08 Alexander 33

We returned to the Goblins, when the local Goblin informed us that they have been robbed! O_O;;

2015-07-08 Alexander 34

I accepted the quest to investigate while Cid and the Au Ra just ran off. This proves that Goblins are super reliable, loyal creatures that don’t run away when you accept a quest. ö.ö

2015-07-08 Alexander 35

Roundox was veryupset and sad.

2015-07-08 Alexander 36

When suddenly, the Thief was presented, totally beaten up!

2015-07-08 Alexander 37

Cid and Biggs had brought the stolen goods back!

2015-07-08 Alexander 38

You cannot imagine Roundox’ joy!

2015-07-08 Alexander 39

As thanks, she gave Cid the Glowstone.

2015-07-08 Alexander 40

When suddenly, the Glowstone showed off some weird magic stuff o.o;

2015-07-08 Alexander 41

It seemed to be some old grimoire stuff or something that the Au Ra lady was after. She said she’d examine the stone closer.

2015-07-08 Alexander 42

Okay, would be nice to know what that Au Ra lady really knew about all this stuff. <.<

But nobody tells me anything! Not even the cheese recipe!
