The beginning of Crafting and Gathering adventures

New Crafting and Gathering adventures awaited me with Stormblood. Suddenly, my guild leaders had new tasks. All at the same time. It was really weird.

My bestie Nanamo-chan wanted some musical instruments crafted from my Goldsmithing master.

Unfortunately, she didn’t realize who she was talking to…

Nanamo was really understanding, so no major issue happened. Thanks to “her dear Riiko”. :)

She also insisted on starting a Goldsmithing school in Rhalgr’s reach but didn’t want to be known as their funding source. Such a noble plan, lil Nanamo! Thanks for supporting those in need.

As Botanist, I helped out the local botanists in Idyllshire to ensure their supplies of fresh food. Unfortunately, a cookie tree has vet to be invented.

The Goblin from Idyllshire and his pupils were building something and needed rare ore to be mined for them. If course it was an easy feat for me to do.

From a Sahagin, I learned a new way of fishing.


And now I’m stuck on the Level 68 quest for ever and ever… :(

All my other crafter teachers had new tasks for me that lead me to Kugane or other new areas. If you are curious what happened.. Why don’t you do them yourself? >:D

I figured, everyone can do these quests as they are leveling these classes. Why bother to specifically write what you already know anyway? :\


Can you draw these FFXIV job and class icons?

It is several months ago since this trended on Twitter. I always meant to fill it out but I eventually forgot about it. Now it’s time, to do what has to be done: Can I draw these icons?

Oh right, my name is Riiko Rinkoko and my main job is WHM.

LOL if this was a test at school I would have failed due to forgetting my name… It’s been many years since school, please forgive me!

I’m surprised how many icons I could remember – the wrong way around! Many would have to be mirrored horizontally to be correct. If there is anyone around who can explain this phenomenon, please do!

After finishing, I noticed that I drew SCH as a Butt Mage when in fact it is a Boob Mage! O.O; Please check it thoroughly, everyone!

Here you can find the original post with the blank form if you would like to fill this out too! :D

A useless Miner?

Also my Miner Guild Master sent me to Ishgard.

This is slowly getting old.

I met with a group of soldiers whom I was to accompany. They were lead by a professor who was looking for some super rare minerals. While the group of soldiers was to protect us all, I was to procure the items.

2015-06-19 MIN HW 02

So we ventured forth into the Goblin territories.

2015-06-19 MIN HW 03

The professor told me where to gather and what to look out for.

Every now and then we were attacked by the local monsters.

2015-06-19 MIN HW 04

Suddenly, the coungest solider got scared by a Goblin and fell off a cliff.

2015-06-19 MIN HW 05

Luckily, it wasn’t very deep and he survived with a broken leg.

The goblin was actually just there to help me gather the items the professor was looking for…

2015-06-19 MIN HW 06

Still not sure why the soldiers were there. I mean, I’m basically a one-Lala-army and no monster tries to attack me when I’m gathering.

Except in the Diadem. <.<;

In the end I hadn’t done much to help the team. Yet they felt happy that I had been there and helped them out. XD

Blog Stats

Since the release in late August, WordPress has tracked handy stats for me.

Looking at the visitor and views per month figures, I would say it’s definetly going in the right direction. What’s counting most is the green visitor figure. I assume, WordPress counts each IP address. So in case someone’s provider assigns a new IP address every time you visit the page, WordPress assumes, you are a new visitor. ö.ö /drool

In August 2014, I had an average of 25 visitors per day! Wooooosh~

2014-09-02 Statistik Visitors-views per month

In which countries is my blog a real hit?

Most of my readers live in the USA, UK and Germany. Or maybe people from those countries have just the best taste in awesome blogs? :D

I would like to thank all of you for reading my blog.

Spread the word and enjoy Eorzea!

Everybody’s Darling

Quite unexpected as I had not payed attention, I was awarded the “Everybody’s Darling” Achievement.

This meant, loads of people like me, right?

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 01

Happily, I embraced everybody around me.

My friends were rather unimpressed by my sudden embraces.

Was I not their darling after all? ;_; They were probably just being shy, right?

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 02

I rushed to the Apkallu Falls, received my awesome new mount and directly tested it while waiting on my gathering points to spawn.

Well, my new Magitek Mount does look golden. I’m not sure if I actually like it.

I mean, it’s cool and all but it’s just not my beloved Rosalinde, that I saved from the Imperials.

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 03

Unsure how I should feel about the golden Magitek, I proceeded with my gathering adventures.

I had big dreams of raising my very own minion army by planting and tending which should grow into strong plantmen and plantwomen.

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 04

Lost in thought I remembered my gathering times as Lalafell.

It was easy to reach the grasses and herbs on the ground. My back wouldn’t hurt all the time from bending down as catgirl…

On the other hand, my arms feel much stronger as catgirl and the ricks just get smashed like warm butter.

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 05

Still, not much has changed. I still sit on my baldie Gobbue like I used to. I still wear the same magical clothes and still enjoy everything the same.

I like the cold nights in the Shroud when only the moon and the stars witness your adventures. It’s refreshing and relaxing.

And when the sun rises again, her beautiful light warms my heart and fills it with joy.

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 06

To be more social during my gathering adventures, I decided to visit lonely Jam.

She has recently become victim to the severe Desert cliff dune fishing during heatwaves phenomenon.

Little Jam just sits there all week, hoping for heat waves, fishing near the edge into the deep depths of the canyon.

As I sat there with Mag, this quickly became rather boring. It makes me curious… Why is Jam so addicted with this? Are those dune fishies really that tasty? ö.ö;

2014-07-22 Everybodys darling 07

Tell me, guys, what makes fishing so exciting?
