I haven’t touched any of the new raids yet – I’m not super interested in dealing with that pain until the next set of Tomes drop (next week?) and people are a bit more geared and practiced with the fights. From what I have seen, I doubt it’ll be a series I farm for much of anything, but more of a story clear. … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Shadowbringers – Second Time Through MSQ
Second time around
At the suggestion of a guild member I accepted the offer to do a run through on AQ20 as well, and the result of it were a few more pieces of gear. The biggest of them was Buru’s Skull Fragment. This was a shield that eluded me on Belghast in classical wow. Each time it dropped, there was always someone along on a main, that I passed it to, or another alt with better dice. So I have to admit, that I was borderline giddy when it dropped. In addition this I managed to pick up Polished Obsidian Pauldrons, which in theory was a downgrade from my Stockade Pauldrons. However if you notice, the new shoulders are a level 60 item, meaning they are eligible for Heavy Knothide Armor Kit… which in turn makes the item a net gain overall. Last gem from AQ20, was the Head of Ossirian the Unscarred which netted a pretty nice tanking neck: Pendant of the Shifting Sands. … [Read more...] about Time Capsule Tanking

At this year’s E3 followup, there wasn’t any huge new reveal, aside from the launch date itself – just more tweaks. There certainly seems to be a bit of a disconnect between the overall MMO sphere and the 2050 fandom the devs are used to, with the devs somewhat understandably being more connected to their fans. After all, those are people who are willing to pay to play, and especially for a free to play game, that’s what you need. I got my hands on the game for the second time this year, and while it’s a solid play experience, I worry that, created in a vacuum, its potential for growth beyond the original Defiance experience is limited. … [Read more...] about E3 2018: A second look at Trion’s Defiance 2050 reboot
0 I just got back from a business trip to Chicago. This was my second time in the Windy City. Thankfully, it wasn’t so windy. The four days I was there were fairly mild — mostly 60’s and 70’s with 10-15mph wind. As a Southern California shorts-wearing flip-flop-card-carrying member, I did get chilly in the evenings when I would adventure out looking for food. Since I’m not really into the whole food scene or the city scene — especially at night in Chicago — I spent a lot of my time inside. … [Read more...] about Can You Play More Than One MMORPG at a Time?
