So for a while I kinda wanted to blog about my time in FFXIV but I had this impression that everyone associates this blog with otome games (and well honestly – I don’t blame anyone for doing so (´ﾟωﾟ)). I thought about then starting a completely separate blog for FFXIV stuff but then I remembered – this was originally intended to be my game blog..so I guess it would kinda defeat the purpose if I can’t blog about games on it right?? Does anyone remember that I have an MMO game category? (¯―¯٥) But I know a lot of readers here mainly care to read otome game reviews so to make it a little easier to filter I’ll just preface my FFXIV posts with “FFXIV”! Hopefully that will make things a little cleaner and as usual they will be categorized in the Final Fantasy XIV category. There won’t be a set schedule on when I will make entries but I’d like to post when something interesting happens or there’s a new update etc. And hopefully this will breathe some life into the blog since my reviews tend to be once or twice a month these days.
With that out of the way I’d like to bring to the attention my FFXIV identity crisis fueled by Fantasia. Fantasia is a cash item you buy for $10 that lets you change your character’s race/gender/appearance. Square Enix knows that most of their players love this stuff, like a bad drug, so they put it on sale for 25% off all month. Sadly I took the bait ＼(^o^)／
After fiddling around with the benchmark I found a Miqo’te Moonkeeper look I really like…and well here I am. Honestly though I love my Au Ra a lot so I can’t see this lasting too long. On that note, I have a history of fantasia abuse.
I started the game as a hyur midlander male cause well I just wanted to stare at a hot guy the whole time 😆 A lot of my Japanese server friends were lalafells so I decided to shrink and became a chibi version of my former self. That lasted for a while until I decided I really liked this male Elezen look so I grew up. The Elezen necks really bothered me when they weren’t wearing clothes so I decided to try the catboy thing.
After 2 months I decided I wanted to be the same height as my lala-husband so I went back to lalafell. Once weddings were added in Eorzea, my husband & I switched to midlanders because we realized that all the nice wedding details would be lost on the tiny people.
Half a year later, 3.0 came out and we turned into dragon people. (I made my husband go back to midlander though because his male Au Ra was twice my height x_x). And now with the sale of Fantasias, this morning I turned into a cat girl (；・∀・)。 Honestly I really do miss my Au Ra especially that hairstyle which is unique to that race only. But I was curious I guess….I think out of all the races I’ve been so far I like Au Ra’s the most, the emotes, the voices etc. I like midlanders too but the female voices are kinda eh…but since I have some extra fantasias I might try it out. Not really a fan of female Elezens (cause necks) and Roes because I like cuter stuff (though I did manage to make an uguu roelady in the benchmark lol xD). I’m hoping in 4.0 we’ll finally get the Vierra race so I can be a bunny girl (*´∀｀*).
