AFv3 – Pics and comments

Well… WHM got off lightly. I kinda like it and it’s not nearly as cutsie as the AF or Relic. BLM looks like he’s going out to dinner and probably with his cheap friend the DNC who can’t afford a decent tux.

SE wussed on THF and didn’t give them the robe or tunic or something they needed to go with those pants. WAR, DRG and DRK kinda got left out with very ‘meh’ interpretations of their existing armour. Not terribad but a bit dull.

I hate the BLU. Looks like the guy is prepping for surgery. Also, was it really necessary to make SCH’s JSE even MORE ugly? The body isn’t too bad but the overall effect is horrendous.  And wtf with the bad colouring on the COR gear? Looks shabby as all hell -absolutely hate it.

Apparently all the best dressed SAM wear pink. It’s ok but like PLD not awe inspiring. BST is kinda getting there but the best bit is definitely the helm. I like that they’ve toned down PUP a little with a plainer body. NIN is about what I expected. SMN and RNG are both full of win! I really like the look for both of them.

MNK I couldn’t give a crap about but Ure’s happy with the stupid pants. RDM is super masculine but it always has been. I like everything about BRD except the hat but it’s beautiful otherwise. The hat is v silly.

So there, before we’re burdened with gear we don’t like cos it has stats we’d kill for… is Eld’s aesthetic appraisal of AFv3!

Fish! Today’s fish is orobon a la creme. Please enjoy your meal!

I know, I know… I haven’t posted in a while.  Things have been busy at work and in game but I just haven’t felt much like posting.  No drama, just have other things to do – damn work for being hectic!

Gathering inside for Walk of Echoes

Well we’ve finally caved in and are doing some Walk of Echoes. I still REALLY don’t like the way SE has done things in regards to loot distribution and keeping the zones open but our melee need weapons and our mages quite like hMP gear. Yes, ok so we spend most of our lives in #2 because its easy but we have dabbled in #1 and #5. I’ve added my feedback about the event to various threads. Read More…

Last couple of weeks in a nutshell

Wow, hectic time out here in the real world for the last couple of weeks, so no time for much other than flyby blogging. Sorry for the random short posts flagging up useful or interesting things I’ve seen, I didn’t have much time for much else.

Like most people, I’ve been living in Abyssea but I must admit to getting a bit burnt out. So a couple of days off has been good.  Especially when they involve theatre trips!

In game, we managed a weird but vaguely productive Xarc run. Everyone seemed out of sorts and peeps were all playing the wrong jobs. Still we walked away with a few nice trophies including a Duelist’s Chapeau for Silkxiv and I completed my COR relic set and completely lootwhored it out that run. It always seems to work out that way for me. Nothing for a while and then bam! Three pieces at once. OK… one was an open lot BST piece which no one wanted AT ALL, so I spent points on it for Mitch and then discovered it completed his BST relic.

Updating everything all over again.

I can’t actually keep on top of all the new gear right now. I’m not even attempting to gear all 7 jobs right now. I’m trying to focus on pieces which make a difference to several jobs or to key jobs. The problem is, right now I’m using different jobs… WHM will always be number one. That’s the easy one.  RDM has become increasingly useful, whether I like it or not. BLM doesn’t get used as much as it did, but that goes in cycles anyway.  SMN has come out far more than it has in ages and I’m glad it’s now 85. I thought I had resigned myself to leaving SCH and COR behind. Alas, no. COR is still the most likely to get dropped but now I doubt it.

I’m just under halfway to finishing my Surya’s Staff +1. I have something like 97 lightsday kills to do and I am done. Thanks to the help from Kaibelf & Martinius. By which point I suspect my SCH will be complete as it is now 83… I managed to complete my WHM Afv3 legs at the same time as Kenda finished his THF. Not much progress on the headpiece, I really need to focus.

Filling out the AFv3

This is more for my record than anything else but I wanted somewhere to post up compiled info on the AFv3 stuff for my jobs. I’m not sure I’ll take all 7 to 85 yet let alone quest this stuff for all.  Read More…

More AFv3 (BLM, BRD, RDM, SCH, COR & SMN)

Well, it’s all a bit overwhelming. Before I went to bed last night I managed to collect one Kindred’s Crest for the level cap and take a look around Miseraux and Attowha. I found so much stuff and will post a screenshot post later but wow. I particularly like the mini Orobon near the waterfall in Mis.

I’ve collected together the sets of AFv3 pics from various places (credit to peeps contributing to BG and to Evil Paul). Remember there are +1 and +2s. In most cases people have posted the uber +2s but even the +1s are remarkable.

Base head pieces are bought with Cruor from the NPCs inside the new zones. I picked up an Orison Cap.  Then I guess you go to the Magian Moogle and get a trial set up. Not sure what happens next. 🙂
