[FF14] [Screenshots] Adventures of Brushy Ception in Wonderful Eorzea 2 ._.

And here comes the promised part 2 of the FF14 screenshots post. Due to time constraints, the Lilith Rod was not presented in the previous post. Back then, I did not know what a feat it was to obtain that rod. But now that I have FINALLY completed my relic Novus, and am moving forward to the Nexus questline… Well, it’s not the first time SE has made people grind, and it’s not the first time I grind, but everytime I am faced with yet another major farm/grind task, I feel sad.

Look at what Pie's holding. That's the Lilith Rod. No glow = no deal :|

A closeup. Don't ask how I got such a good picture of it. We were doing treasure maps and met the floating eye and we both got caught in Petrification X :D Free 20 seconds to take a good pic.

And due to me hiding the interface for a good minute, I didn't notice that Pie had died without me noticing ._. until it was too late :P

The Road to Novus

So the road to Novus… it’s been more than half a year for me, mainly because I left the game after just uprading my shield to Novus. Alexandrites are a pain to collect. Back then, and even just a week ago, the best sane way to amass 75 of them would be 1 per day via expert roulette. Basically a countdown to the number of days left to Novus, or number of days left till you quit the game. But SE made it quite alot easier just this patch. For example, by hunting non-stop from yesterday till a few hours ago, I farmed like 3k Allied Seals and along with it, about 2k Soldiery, which equates to more than 20 Alexandrites in such a short time!! It’s no easy task, since you have to constantly be on the lookout for Hunt spottings in chat and rush over IMMEDIATELY. K let’s not talk about this horrible process, but here it is, my shiny :DDD

Note: A rank hunts now give 40 Seals and 30 Sol. S ranks give 100 Seals and 100 Sol!! Weekly B rank gives 100 Seals too so don’t forget them. The main reason why this is now the main way to obtain Alexandrites is that EVERYONE hunts now (for unstained logs), so hunt parties are up constantly and people are working hard finiding the spawns.

The excitement :P

Patch of Darkness

And talking about new patch, we have a couple of awesome new features added to the game. Say hi to World of Darkness.

The new crystal tower raid WORLD OF DARKNESS. Name sounds badass and interesting, and the new gear dropped are i120 with pretty appealing designs.

This is pretty random, but I saw this toon outside the crystal tower entrance. Looks weird, but has a certain charm :S Simply put, he's cute.

It's a fun boss and in fact, many of the bosses in WoD are fun to play with. This dog grows more and more complacent until it starts breaking its chains and you have to re-chain him.

Beautiful Cloud of Darkness used to be beautiful, at least in Dissidia she was a sexy lady. Here, she reminds me of some crazy unleashed Claymore monster with that expressionless but HUGE face.

The Keeper of the Lake

So this is the new 4-man dungeon. You are required to unlock it and complete it, along with WP HM and AK HM to resume your expert roulettes :3

New dungeon to be unlocked along with storyline.

1st boss seems the hardest since we wiped twice before clearing.

K this boss is fine by itself, but the 2 flying things above will constantly drop bombs onto the field. These bombs explode after a while and should be pushed to the sides of the field (similar to Bray HM last boss bombs). The boss will periodically suck everything, including bombs and you, to himself and you have to RUN as fast as possible away from the boss. Hence, tank should keep the boss at the sides of the field, so that when he sucks the bombs, the bombs will all be near one edge, and your mates can run to the clear side of the field.

The last boss(es). I din take a screen of the 2nd boss since he was easy. Just dodge aoes and thats about it.

The last boss is actually a 3 part boss fight. There is this demon-wall thing (like Cloud of Darkness) but he’s simply fixed onto that side of the wall and keeps using aoe skills. After a while he summons one of the sleeping dragons to battle and tank should immediately start putting all attention onto it. You can ignore managing aggro of the wall boss since he’s just using the same aoe skills throughout. The dragons become the boss and they take a long time to defeat. After you defeat both, the wall boss will be left with a tiny bit of HP and you can kill him off quickly.

The blue aoe is from the wall boss. He will aim either the outer circle or the inner circle, so I find it best to tank near the middle line, allowing easy side-stepping.
