When did you start ffxiv, and why?

Started at the end of Stormblood. Ryve was kinda hyped about Shadowbringers and I tried it for the first time. Dreydn and other friends also tried it out at the same time. I believe another reason for going to FF14 was the kinda depressing “raid”-group we got into in WoW after a long break.

Tell us a memorable experience in ffxiv!

The story, Hildebrandt, the story around Palace of the Dead and raiding are all memorable. More specific experiences? Working towards clearing a savage/ultimate and having those super-close moments at the end, where everybody is razor-focused and strained at the same time.

What else do you play right now or in general?

Oh boy. A lot of mostly everything. Shooters (L4D, Payday, Outriders), RPGs (Demon Souls: Remastered, Disco Elysium), Indie (Fights In Tight Spaces, Valheim, Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth) and Fighting Games (Dragon Ball FighterZ, Guilty Gear: Strive). I do prefer Co-op games over anything though.

What was your first Final Fantasy?


And what is your favorite Final Fantasy Game?

FF14… hard to compare MMO to Singleplayer though. FF7 for singleplayer, since it’s … the only other one that I finished.

What do you enjoy doing in ffxiv?

(Progress-)Raiding at high end with competent people. Pushing myself to refine my class. Zoning out to gathering/crafting.

What are you missing in ffxiv? Classes, Housing Items, … ?

… the 2nd Ultimate of Shadowbringers that didn’t make it in because of pandemic (;_;)

Is ffxiv your first mmo? If not, what was your first mmo?

World of Warcraft was my first mmo, which was … 16 years ago. Thanks for that question. Stuck with WoW occasionally with a good amount of break due to school. I did try other MMO’s over time, like Aion, GW2, StarWars: The Old Republic and Wildstar.

What songs do you enjoy from ffxiv?

Well, I hate none of them. Seriously. If I got to name a few … Trial music is good (Ravana, Suzaku, Sephirot, *Lady of the Moon*). Music from Ultimate fights are unique, as in, they always sync up with the fight which is pretty cool.
