Catering to Casual Crowds: FFXIV Has Done No Wrong

Last time we tackled on some of the factors (outside of sales graphics and gameplay) that greatly affects the success of an MMORPG. I mentioned that casual content, voice acting, cutscenes, music and support play a major role on bringing satisfaction to players, casuals or not, thus bringing more sales. I also defined them accordingly. So which of those category do you think Final Fantasy XIV sufficed? Did Final Fantasy take at least one of those? Let us take a look at the first Casual Content. Casual Content in FFXIV These are all according to my personal opinion a Final Fantasy…

The Best Tank in the Game

I have come to realize that in playing any game, you have to choose the best among the choices of character / class. Picking the “what suits you” class or “what is fun to play” in your FFXIV Account is not applicable anymore. Emphasis on this even more if there is progression involve. Picking the best class in an MMORPG which involves progression will surely lessen the hassle and headache. So in Final Fantasy XIV, in leveling or creating a character to be a tank late game, which should you choose? Paladin, Warrior or Dark Knight? Let us analyze. The…

Who is the Best Support: Machinist or Bard?

As I shared some information about the new ranged support job in Final Fantasy XIV last time, the Machinist, a question came to mind. Now that there are two physical range DPS in FFXIV, which is more powerful between the two, Machinist or Bard? The follow-up question is which do people or raids prefer more, Machinist or Bard? More powerful doesn’t mean it is more preferred since both have different utilities aside from dealing damage. Some things that Machinist lack can be provided by Bard and vice versa. So let’s take a look the differences of the two. Best Support…

The Howling Eye Extreme – Garuda Overwhelming

Last time I shared my Howling Eye experience in the hard mode. Now, I want to take a look back on my Howling Eye Extreme experience and share it with you guys. Reasons Why I Love Garuda Extreme The Howling Eye Extreme is one of my favorite fights in Final Fantasy XIV because it is all about team execution, minimal errors and everyone has to do their role in this fight. One move and you have to redo the fight all over again. I hated having to do the fight all over again when we were in the last phase. My…

Ifrit Hard Mode! The Demon Within!

It has been awhile when I first started playing Final Fantasy XIV. It was A Realm Reborn FFXIV Account back then. I finished the story and managed to pass through the Primals. I was thinking, “I hope there are harder difficulties for these Primals.” Lo and behold, there were really harder modes of the Primals. Will people be needing to do them because I really wanted to try killing them? Fortunately, in order to get the strongest weapon in the game back then, you had to finish all of the three and finding groups wanting to finish the Primals was…

On the State of Hardcore PvE Raiding

Raiding During the Player Drought I was just browsing around reddit, minding my own business and just looking for something to write about, and then, suddenly, I find this little post on end game raiding. “Getting 8 people together to do scheduled content is difficult. And when you have content that requires several weeks of practice to clear and people slam their heads against walls for it, it leads to burn out. Couple this with the fact I believe we’re just so far into the game’s life cycle now that there might be a diminishing pool of veteran raiders willing…

Titan Hard Mode: The Landslide King!

Here is another reminiscing moment again, this time, my experience in trying to finish Titan Hard and Extreme. This fight really is, if I may, a pain in the butt! Like most of the dungeon fights in my FFXIV Account, if you disregard the mechanics, you are dead. Most especially in all Primal fights. It is really hard that you have to keep in mind the mechanics, your role in team and if you are actually the leader of that group, you have to literally hold the hands of the new players or forgive me for using this term, the…
