When did you start ffxiv, and why?

Technically during a beta event for 1.0, I didn’t like it and moved on like a lot of people, it was off my radar until a couple of months before Stormblood dropped. I picked it up as part of WoW -> XIV migration with a few friends who prompted gave up on it and I’ve been here ever since!

What else do you play right now or in general?

I tend to go quite hard on JRPGs as you might expect, currently playing a lot of Monster Hunter: Rise too.

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

First: Final Fantasy 7 on my Dad’s cracked PS1 when I was about 7 years old.
Favourite: Unpopular opinion but Final Fantasy XIII-2, the time travel, multiple endings and customisable third party member really spiced that game up for me.

What do you enjoy doing in ffxiv?

Glamours. I’m all about that fashion, specifically finding gear that no one uses and trying to make it work! I’m particularly proud of my Persona 5 inspired RDM glamour using level 1 Female Roegadyn chest armour.

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

Ultima Online way back in the olden days. On an old server called Pangaea.

What are your RL activities that you enjoy?

I play a lot of Magic the Gathering, Warhammer 40k and absolutely love pointlessly complex fantasy boardgames.

What songs do you enjoy from ffxiv?

I adore the Nier universe so the Weight of the World Prelude Version from the end of the Copied Factory raid is a banger. The way it blending the Final Fantasy Prelude into the orchestral sections is incredible.
