Aqu’a Fantasia

When did you start ffxiv, and why?

I started playing back in 1.15, long before A Realm Reborn existed, because I’d grown bored of playing FF XI Online and with Yoshi taking over production of XIV I’d hoped things were looking up (I was not disappointed and have been online since!)

Tell us a memorable experience in ffxiv!

Spending a month straight ocean fishing will never leave my mind – or my titles – but that’s not necessarily a good thing… Learning to fight the final tier of the Omega series as a whole will always stay with me as it was the first time I’d progged together with our FC leader as a co-healer and haven’t yet found a more reliable bird person!

What else do you play right now or in general?

I’m a sucker for story-based games and mythology. Currently playing Immortals Fenyx Rising for its Greek Myth portrayal, puzzles and soul-crushing sarcasm. Same for the Hades game!

What was your first Final Fantasy? And what is your favorite Final Fantasy Game?

VIII was my first, I remember asking my older brother when I was little if he could play so I could keep watching, then when he suggested I started my own game my brain melted and has never recovered since. It’ll always be my favourite, alongside X. And IX. And most of the others. Except XV ¬.¬ What do you enjoy doing in ffxiv? FISHING. Always run out of new fish to get though 🙁 Also fostering my superiority complex by spamming Mentor roulette in raid gear

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

I have most things… except the goddamn Firion Triple Triad card AAHHHHH. I try and do most things as they’re released, but I’m not too worried about the Ultimate content (I have some kills, but not too interested in getting a static for them).

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

FFXI was my first MMO. I’ve played some free ones in the downtime between XIV and ARR but nothing really stuck

What are your RL activities that you enjoy?

Cycling, Piano, and Crossfit! And much sleep

What songs do you enjoy from ffxiv?

All Primal songs are awesome. I think my favourite song at the moment though would be the XIV & NieR mashup of Weight of the World. Two great games key motifs weaved together so nicely ❤

Do you have pets?

I have a greyhound called Baldrick. He’s a moron and not at all cunning.
