One of the nicest things about playing a game like FFXXIV is that you are not bound to a single job and can try out all the jobs that are in the game. Though I started as a Thaumaturge (what ultimately becomes the Black Mage) I quickly had to put it down because overworld combat was simply too … [Read more...] about How to Become a White Mage FFXIV
I recognize that it's a bit weird writing a post about whether FFXIV is a game that is worth the subscription, especially when it's clear that I genuinely love the game and have rarely put it down. Truthfully, there have only been two times since I started playing FFXIV that I didn't renew … [Read more...] about Is FFXIV Worth It?
When I first started playing FFXIV I somewhat rushed my character creation because I was too overwhelmed with how many options there were.

I didn't think I would be writing guides about stats and optimization in FFXIV as I tend to shy away from the more technical advice. Truthfully that's why I would never write a guide about Job rotations and instead chose to write my opinions on what playing each Job is like. At this point I don't … [Read more...] about What Is More Important, Gathering or Perception? | FFXIV Guide
I think no one is going to be surprised that I'm posting yet another guide on Crafting since it's the task I've been primarily doing for the past few months. I truly don't think there has been a day I haven't spent a few hours crafting since returning full-time to FFXIV and though my favourite … [Read more...] about What Is More Important Control or Craftsmanship
If you know anything about me, you know that I'm an extremely impatient person who lets all minor inconveniences get under his skin. This year I was asked by a few colleagues to make an alt on another data center so I could complete Savage Raids with them, which meant having to redo the story of … [Read more...] about How to Unlock Flying in FFXIV
It's no secret that the Leveling Roulette is the most optimal way to level your Jobs to the maximum level and is typically the only Roulette players will complete daily, especially if they have side jobs they still need to level. You may already know that I went on a rampage this year in hopes of … [Read more...] about How to Limit Your Leveling Roulette in FFXIV
If you're a long-term player of FFXIV you will understand the luxury of saving time by doing certain duties unsynced. Whether it's to farm Mounts from Extreme Trials, catch up on loot from previous Savage tiers or get your Wondrous Tails complete for the week, the option to complete duties rapidly … [Read more...] about Do You Get Rewards for Unsynced/Unrestricted Duties in FFXIV?
