Alchemic Inspector Riiko

It was finally time that my skills were needed again. Severian, the Guild Leader of the Alchemists called his favorite assistant for help.

2015-06-19 ALC HW 01

Which was, of course, me. I couldn’t be any prouder as an Alchemist who has reached the “pinnacle of our art” and was ready to fullfill this difficult task.

In Mor Dhona, I met with fellow Alchemist Guild members.

They were having issues with thieves who stole important Alchemic documents or something…

2015-06-19 ALC HW 02

Of course, I helped them figure out what happened.

We investigated all suspicious behaiour in and around Mor Dhona.

It was very clear to me that something big was going on.

2015-06-19 ALC HW 04

With the help of my newly found Alchemist buddies, I arrested the most suspicious persons.

The main suspect was an old Alchemist. At least he claimed to be one but he looked weirdly rich and old and something was off. My Lala nose could clearly smell it!

2015-06-19 ALC HW 05

With special alchemic powder, my Alchemist butty bestowed the arrested dude!

2015-06-19 ALC HW 06

And then she spilled it over the book that was stolen.

The powder glowed red both times which means, they had the same kind of “Crafter’s Aura” and there was a connection between them!

2015-06-19 ALC HW 07

Suddenly, the old Alchemist (“Waoud’s body”) collapsed and an other dude in the room (“Clone with Waoud’s soul”) tried to run off.

The strong Alchemist budds managed to stop the clone.

So what had actually happened?

2015-06-19 ALC HW 08

Waoud was an Alchemist who had become old. As he wanted to gain eternal life, he manages to transfer his soul to a younger body. Unfortunately, we caught and arrested him.

He should have just become an adventurer, honestly. Adventurers don’t age ever. :D

My Alchemy buddies thanked me for the geat help and I returned to my own Alchemic Studies.

2015-06-19 ALC HW 09

In the end, I became an Alchemist specialist to craft the Dravanian Trees for my Mog House.

Needless to say, it was a bit of a waste as in Patch 3.2 the specialization requirement was lifted from most recipes…


Heavensward 3.2: Finally an update!

It’s been a while since I wrote new blog entries.

It’s also been a while since there has been a patch. But then, 3.2 was announced and everyone was waiting for it like crazy!

2016-02-28 EA pre-HW3-2

The day before, nobody knew what to do. So we had gathered in Ishgard to show off our awesomeness.

It’s also time I show off the amazing pics I managed to take of Nez!

2015-12-08 Nez night

So beautiful ö.ö

Mag has also started his own twitch stream!

Of course it’s still new and not as crowded as the FFXIV Live Letters, but it’ll get there.

Leonie had the great idea we should embarass Mag live and all over the internet being super embarassing while he’s streaming.

2016-02-27 Mags stream 01

His stream:

And then, Patch 3.2 was implemented!

Thank you all, my loyal readers for demanding updates.

Thank you, Ritz, for menacing me with a demotion if I don’t update today. It was very motivating!

2016-02-28 Rii HW 3-2

See you in Eorzea!

EuroAsylum challenges A1S

After failing at Thordan so much but with the stead progression we made in mind, we went into Alexander 1 Savage (A1S).

2015-12-19 Alexander A1S 01

We just wanted to see how it goes and if we were able to beat Faust.

We beat Faust with actually no real issue. I was impressed. It also meant that we dealt enough damage to beat the whole thing.

Someone told me, I did 1600 DPS on Faust as SMN. They assumed, it was due to Deathflare hitting the adds but upon more detailed analysis afterwards, the main damage was actually on Faust itself. ö.ö Can I grow an epeen now?

Anway, we proceeded to the actual boss.

Things died pretty quick. It was amazing.

Just replace “things” by “us”.

2015-12-19 Alexander A1S 02

We tried quite often, but eventually, the mechanics killed us to a point that we just gave up.

For now.

We’re just a mixed bunch of endgame raiders, casuals and wanna-be raiders like me.

I just wish there was raid content harder than Alex normal but easier than Alex savage. :\ That’d be perfect.

2015-12-19 Alexander A1S 03

On a side note, I would like to show a parse of one of our Thordan Ex runs. For privacy reasons, I changed the names to the jobs people joined as, except for mine. ò.óV

Was pretty proud to be 2nd DPS! ö.ö I even died a few times because mechanics. But hey, Summoner DoTs stay even if dead. Way to go, me!111

Quality of Life: Crafting, Gathering, Limit Breaks

On Twitter, a lot of japanese players post photoshopped pictures of their characters at the beach with water splashing around them.

I’ve done the same.

It looks awesome!!

Gathering in Ayskszrzszs Lla.

2015-10-11 Gathering 01

BRD LB2. Suddenly I pull out my 2 Crossbows that I had kept hidden in my back pockets and shoot like there is no tomorrow.

2015-11-07 BRD LB 01

SMN LB3 is epic. I’m still not satisfied that I’ve never used it before.

2015-12-29 Mag SMN LB 01

It’s like super epic giant explosion!

2015-12-29 Mag SMN LB 02

My aim is to use LB3 as SMN and take cool pictures ò.ó

2015-12-19 Riiko SMN

The other day, I crafted loads of collectibles for the Maser 3 crafting books. Thanks to my new macros from the internet (slightly adjusted to my CP), it worked out perfectly.

2015-12-30 Crafting 01

And thus, I was able to craft cool stuff like Ifrit minions!! ö.ö

2015-12-30 Crafting 02

Too bad the horns are so expensive, or I could give them away like hot elezen ear soup.

Quality of Life: The small things

Did you know that there are Goblins in Idyllshire that will interact with you?

2015-11-15 Idyllshire Dragon Moogle Mag Rii 01

Whe you put on the Goblin mask, they will start panicking and dancing to you!

2015-11-15 Idyllshire Dragon Moogle Mag Rii 02

Remember the Teleport-Guy from Idyllshire?

He’s now jobless and calls himself “one-time guide”. XD Poor guy, replaced by aetherites. :\

2015-11-15 Idyllshire One Time Guide

From time to time, a little Carby appears at specific spots. Also an Au Ra Lady is walking through town frequently, but I featured her in my blog already.

2015-12-09 Idyllshire Carby

There is also a nice spot in Idyllshire that looks like you’re ona hiking trip in the Alpes.

2015-08-15 Riiko Owly

The Goblet is not the most awesome place to live, apart from it’s amazing oasis flair and the beautiful pond in its very middle. ö.ö I wish the Lavender beds had a nice and accessible pond like this one!

2015-08-27 Riiko Uldah

From time to time, Chaosi shows up to show off his latest dance moves, Summoner skills or awful fashion style.

2015-12-04 Chaosi SMN

As Summoner, I myself am using the Limit Break 3 on a frequent basis.

It looks EPIC!!

2015-11-21 Mag Void Ark LB3 SMN

Actually, I’ve never used the SMN LB3 and in the pic it’s not me but Mag. >.<;;

Did you know that I’m such an awesome WHM that I obtained the BRD Relic Bow while being a White Mage?!


2015-12-04 BRD Relic Zeta

Now I can shoot with a bow while casting Holies.

(I wish!)

In our Free Company home, the top floor is like a throne room. We actually held the last officer meeting there with our leader on the throne and the officers at the table.

2015-11-16 Officer Meeting

I was glad that my designed room was actually used for what I had intended it to be used for. ö.ö

After the meeting, I quickly claimed the throne.

That was when Ryko brought me cookies.

2015-11-16 Ryko 01

I quickly gave up the throne and fed on the awesome cookies. Who needs a throne when you can have cookies!

2015-11-16 Ryko 02

Have you ever tried /gpose?

It’s a new tool developed for people like me who like to take screenshots.

Before you use it, make sure to be in a party with your friends and have everyone perfom an emote of their liking.

Then use /gpose

2015-11-18 Lacy Sis Chelci

Everyone will start the emote they used before at the same time. The background is blurred and looks cool. Also, everyone will face in the camera’s direction. Minions and Companions will do the same. The facing part will only work when in a party though.

Last but not least, I witnessed the giant dinosaur in the tiny island in Diadem once.

It was massively impressive.

2015-12-03 Diadem Danger 01

A few days later, I saw pictures of two dinosaurs on this tiny island… It looked even more impressive and I was a little jealous that I have never experienced this now that Diadem has become unpopular again. >.<;
