Housing Adventures Reborn on Omega

After our small victory in Gyr Abania, it was time to relax.

With the move to Omega, everyone got a house. At least those who wanted one, from what I know. It was time to tend to my house and design a bit more. My house is located in a secluded corner of the Lavender beds. Market board, Summoning bell and local merchants are offering their services nearby. I don’t have a beuaiful flower pond anymore, but I got a large mansion so that’s that.

On that day, I picked up Lilly in her house and have her a small present: “Papalymo and Yda” Painting.

Then, I dragged her with me to show her my garden.

She snuck inside the house although I told her it’s not finished yet… Food was standing all over the floor and she ate quite a bit of it… then passed out. x_x

Soon after, we had ranked up our newly founded Free Company to the rank where we could buy our own house!

Quickly, I ran to our (my?) most favorite plot and purchased the medium house for the Free Company.

There it is:

This spot has a marvelous view on the ocean. It comes with a small private beach and a little private park.

Of course, I built the company workshop directly after placing all the furniture from my retainers inside.

We then worked on our first airship.

It looked beautiful.

Here you can see “Chelci’s Miniskirt” on her first voyage. It’s white with red highlights – classy White mage style.

Then, I proceeded to do some work on the outside of the house.

Our next step would be the work on a Carbuncle house.

Spoiler: It looks amazing!

Goodbye Excalibur! The Storm of Revolution has drawn me to Omega.

It was time to say goodbye.

Not for good, like I would leave Eorzea completely! It was “only” Excalibur server that I would be leaving.

Let me tell you how it came to this.

When the NA data center moved to the West coast, the pink increased drastically to 180-200ms. It was very noticeable for me and some friends, but many also said they didn’t notice anything. Not sure how, I was using Swiftcast>Medica II and it casted Medica II with normal cast time and did not register the Swiftcast effect. Only the next spell would be registered – or if I waited a second before casting the spell.

It was okay, I could live with this somehow, I told myself. While gathering and crafting, I also noticed delays. I would have to re-write all my handy crafting macros!

We had a FC meeting to discuss the status. As not much information was known from SE side, we didn’t come to a decision whether to stay or to leave for one of the new servers. Everyone was basically okay with moving and with staying. Except Nez, he wanted to remain on Excalibur whatever happened!

As the days passed, the Early Access came closer. I didn’t want to start discussions or make people nervous, so I didn’t talk much about this maybe potential move. We were all waiting for information from SE.

The information came like 2 days before Early access and one day before 24h maintenance. With the information that we could take all our money, would be reimbursed for the houses and apartments that we left behind, and the knowledge that we would be able to log onto the new server with the Early access, we decided to move.

That meant, I had to say goodbye to my friends who stayed while trying to convince as many as possible to join. Many joined and I’m really happy about this. Also friends of friends joined and came over to our One Punch Mog FC.

Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Nez who wasn’t joining us. And I said my goodbyes to Nero, Shyvanna and their buddies ;_; Good thing is you can still stay in touch outside of Eorzea but it’s not really the same T_T

After this wall of text, please find the screenshots below:

We gathered at our FC house. I had already emptied the furniture from the garden and from inside and had it on a retainer, ready for transfer.

It felt weird to leave the house behind T_T

At least, some of us gathered to say goodbye.

Especially to dear Nez! Nez was staying behind and we all are missing him ;_;

The empty house. x_x

Was also trying to say goodbye to Nero but he just came with the awful Tidus laugh! Goodbye to that ò.ó

I also said goodbye to Stoneskin. :\

Some cheesy words.

Some more cheesy words.

I sent a cookie to some people. That was when Shyv sent me this ;_; Awww!

The following nearly broke my heart.

Goodbye, beloved Moogle House!

Shyv came over to comfort me, but it still felt so empty ;_;

I’m already missing all you nice people but please know that we’ll always welcome you on Omega. Even without the Free Server Transfer and bonus things you get.

The time on Excalibur was awesome but the time on Omega will also be great.

At least I got to see PF fill up with 100+ parties for the first time in my life. O.O;

Diadem 2.0 is just like 1.0 but with messy Emergency Missions

We also flew to the new Diadem 2.0!

We expected major changes and excitement.

Indeed it was full of FATEs that you had to do besides some mission stuff to unlock a lower area.

The mission results were alright and we got some spoils whith which we could buy new stuff. Like… idk was there actually something new to buy? <.<

But then, suddenly an Emergency Mission happenes! O.O

We traveled to the center of the area and entered a special building.

There, we were fighting multiple enemies at once.

It was really messy and confusing.

Somehow, we killed or aggroed something that wasn’t supposed to happen.

For whatever unlogical reason, the monsters didn’t reset or despawn so we could have tried again.

They stayed where they were and we totally failed, had to leave and hope for a new Emegerncy mission in a different dimension…

We came back several times but never managed to either see or beat an Emergency Mission.

At least everyone who still needed it now had obtained the Pegasus mount. :D

Goodybe, Diadem! Never see you again. :D

Murder Mystery in the Mist: Who dun it?

Things were so calm the past weeks so it was time for a murder.

It was just what I was thinking when I entered the FC house and found Mag dead on the floor!! O_O;

He was murdered but who dun it?

I called the friends from FC to help investigate.

At first they accused me but why would I ever do such a thing?

The investigation lead us outside. Leonie’s wonderful herbs had been harvested by someone else and then left alone!

But who had done this? and did this have to do anything with the murder?

At least we found out that Mag was poisoned by a cookie! This increased the suspicion against me of course >.<;

When we returned to the house, Chelci was dead in a puddle of blood! O_O;

But who did it?

In the end, we solved the murder. It was maybe a slightly far-fetched story that Trem had been angry that he had been replaced in our PotD static as he wasn’t online anymore. Mag had made an awful comment and Trem decided to kill all members except Riiko and blame it all on her!

It was a funny event that – if done another time – should be planned more carefully with the learnings I had.

One Punch Mog Housing Adventures

Thanks to Ley, we moved from the One Punch Mog FC to Ley’s FC and named it One Punch Mog FC.

The perks are the awesome house!

Due to full housing areas in Excalibur and insane “sales prices”, there was no way we’d get a house.

The new house, thanks to Ley, was in the Mist.

It was a lovely spot and I directly decorated it in our FC colors.

The view from the house was stunning!

You could even climb on the roof and enjoy the wonderful holiday resort!

Ley was something like a mommy chocobo lady to my little chibi chocobo. ö.ö I really like her glamour, it looks so elegant and beautiful whereas mine looks chubby yet cute.

Of course I decorated the walls of the house in a beautiful yellow chocobo theme.

The others were not amused.

So I put some more work into it all.

And I think I did a pretty good job!

People come by frequently to relax.

Or even to joke around awkwardly.

We even had this beauty in there <3<3<3 Leonie and me couldn’t stop ourselves…

People added more things and slowly, we made the place our own.

And that’s when I had the idea for a Mystery Murder event!
