"Welcome to Eorzea. Here’s your next disaster."
 
   Someone else mentioned it, but I thought I’d post it up.

Who’s playing FFXIV and what datacenter/server?

If you wish to give character names, add that too.

I’ve got Taelena Laensward on Midgardsormr.

   I have only been playing half-heartedly since poking Bozja, I can only tolerate so much FATE grinding, but when I'm on I exist is Velvet Kurau* on Lamia. It'll be interesting to see if any two of us are even in the same datacenter.

*Yes, I run my MMO toons female pretty much always, and will do so until MMO males lay off the steroids and get some fashion sense. So probably forever.

I think I need to get a new time card - I took a break after finishing the 5.3 MSQ and I need to get back in.

   I was a regular player about six years ago, but I got to a point where I couldn't progress any further without going on zillions of raids -- roughly level 40, if I remember correctly? Not all the way through the original main plot. Anyway, I only knew one other player at the time, and I got tired of pick-up raid parties with strangers and quit.

It was a fun time until then, though. I liked the setting and a lot of the little visual details. I haven't made a habit of playing MMOs, so I don't know how it measures up as an MMO, but it was definitely a good Final Fantasy game, if that makes sense?

That's pretty much how the community at large sees it, it's a Final Fantasy game first, an MMO second, especially once you hit the first expansion's content (a lot of the very early stuff is pretty cliche MMO, right down to almost literal 'kill 10 rats' starter questing.) Also if you're a long time Final Fantasy player there's nostalgia and Easter Eggs around seemingly every corner.

   Nadia West @ Adamantoise (NA datacenter), white mage for hire (other duties as assigned).

There's several of us who play who also check in here. We're all end-game equipped and one of us raids on the regular, though the rest are a bit more casual about it. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I did check with the group and anyone who wants a guided tour at any level range, we'd be more than happy to hitch you to the XP train and take you along.

As for grindy... I mean, I can see it, but I used to play World of Warcraft so by comparison FFXIV is lightyears better (IMO YMMV etc). The more recent patches have, I think, really made the early and mid game experience much *less* grindy and better overall -- for example, it's entirely possible now to progress at a satisfactory rate doing only the main story quests, whereas before you pretty much *had* to step aside and grind a bit to keep your levels up to the entry requirements for the MSQs.

And now that cross-world parties are easy-peasy... :D

Pretty sure you need to be in the same subsection of the region (i.e. Adamantoise is in Aether, while Lamia where I'm at is in Primal) to do cross-world parties. My search for a tame healer continues.

I didn't think this was correct, because their site explicitly says "The World Visit System allows you to travel freely between the Worlds in your data center", and the top of their server status page says "North American Data Center", implying (to me at least) that everything under it is, y'know, in the NA datacenter.

Which apparently it is, but digging deeper I'm forced to come to the conclusion that you may be right, that each of the sub-data-center whatever-they-are's is considered a Data Center too.

I'll have to test when I get home tonight and see where all I can go.

Having just played a third alt through ARR, it's shorter than it used to be, but there's still a lot to play through.

A Data Center is one collection of Worlds (servers). So, the Primal Data Center contains Exodus, the server my two mains are on. I could cross-world with anyone else on the Primal Data Center, but not anyone on Crystal. My third alt is very new and is on Coeurl world, on Crystal Data Center.

Anyway, between my two mains on Exodus I'm happy to help anyone level, run dungeons or raids, whatever PvE content people want. I don't really do extreme content without unsync (ie, running it at max level, higher than the content was designed for), but I've done just about every dungeon and raid in normal mode, in any role.

I have Elhn Kitsune and Qalia Borlaaq on Exodus, and Aenra Kaljian on Coeurl.


I think BZArcher is also on Exodus? Anyone else on Primal is also welcome, if we want to get together and do something. =)

The 'episode arcs' of ARR feel a lot better now. Especially Titan and the Company of Jerks. Which I was done with in no time, while still hitting the good parts of the arc.

Oh gods yes, the Company of Heroes. It felt interminable to me, to be honest, but you're right--it used to be a lot longer. I could see some other places they cut down on the quests, such as Tataru's quest to find something she's good at.

In the end, the Longstop was the longest part of the quest. While the wine part afterwards is longer then the parts before it, I didn't find it too bad. Plus, well, that poor guy in the forest needs some kindness sent his way, so I'm glad they kept that.

   I would be down. I have one character who is basically in end game (I'm using a mix of Puppet's Bunker and Neo-ish gear) for her jobs and one who is 'younger' that I've been leveling off and on.

I like my FC so I don't plan to leave, but I enjoy grouping with lots of people. :D

If my tally is correct, we almost have enough people for a EPU Forum Light Party across the Primal DC, though as ever we might be short a healer.

Hah! Actually, my main character's main class is Astrologian. I can do whatever, though.

And you're right. I'd be down for some content. If there's people who still need to grind out relic weapons, there's always FATEs and some Antitower runs, or I'd be happy with whatever queue people want.

   Okay: For the Primal Data Center, I see myself, Astynax and BZArcher.

I'll let everyone else on Aether organize themselves, but for the three of us on Primal (and anyone else who happens to be around!) if we want to get together we should set a time and date.

Any time people are free?

It varies, in part because I've gotten grabbed a bit by other games (Outer Worlds finally available outside of Epic Fail, and Breath of the Waifu aka Genshin Impact.) Most nights I can be available in the 8 to 11 PM range (Eastern time.) If we're hammering FATEs I'll likely be on my BLU trying to get the last few levels until 60.

I can be around at 8 EDT tomorrow if you like, and if you want we can start with an unsync Cutter's Cry run to try to get Ram's Voice and Dragon's Voice for you. I can confirm BLU is really awesome for FATE grinding, aside from getting XP.

Could be worth a try, the questions being who, what, and where? Most times I'm meeting people from other servers it's in a roulette, so I don't know if there's a traditional meeting point (the Waking Sands maybe, for masochists anyway.)

Alright, I'll pop on around 8 PM and we can figure it out from there. Do you have any more relics to grind FATEs for?

Will do! Astynax and I had some fun, we did some FATE grinding and a Puppet's Bunker run, and I got (him/her) a few Blue Mage spells. =)

I'm not on Twitter, but I'll send a friend invite next time I'm on the game since I'm also on Exodus.

FYI I'm a him, I just prefer the female models/animations in most games that provide the option. And the true endgame of FFXIV, glamour, is much better for female characters IMHO.

Lady Nadia of the Death Glare.

I'm part of Spuds Free Company, with Alice Romanova as my main, and several alts that are making their way though ARR. A game that's nice about letting you do everything on one character, and I still fall victim to altitis.

   Sena Hikari - Adamantoise

Bunny Samurai that just hit 80 the other day. I'm almost done with MSQ stuff and am looking forwards to some end game grinding.

You can 100% go from level 1 to 80 doing just the MSQ as that is what I did. You end up doing your randoms for tomes anyway as it's a good way to gear up until 80.

   Now, now. It's not as if she's a thaumaturge. ...though she probably makes more money than the sinister siblings...

Anyway, the stereotype of Lalafells being evil is racial profiling! We're only moderately more inclined to dastardly deeds than the average Ascian.

...Okay, I'll admit there are a couple of us the world could do without. But one of them's already been (redacted because plot spoiler)! And the other one... well, yeah, he's a prick. But we also have the best cinnamon rolls! Tell me you don't go 'Awww' every time Nanamo or Tataru do something cute and/or ruthless.

Edited because I used brackets instead of parens the first time. The joy of forum markup!

The fact they're cute and on our side doesn't completely disguise the evil.

   I mean, it shouldn't disguise it so much as wrap it in a thin veneer of acceptableness. That way when they need to pull out the knives, you expect it, but still go 'Awww'.

Potato jokes aside, I should be back in the game in some form or fashion within the month, goddess willing. I thiiiink I'm one or two versions behind, though; last thing I remember was gearing up for the Titan monster truck rematch.

Yeah, that is Eden 4. Since then we've had E5-8 and two Nier Alliance raids, and they're all awesome.

   I mean... she has multiple fighters and at least one presumed hero on her payroll, she's started learning to operate the strings behind the scenes... it's not a huge leap to see her in that role.
