[FF14] [Screenshots] Adventures of Brushy Ception in Wonderful Eorzea 5, Brushy the DarkKnight

Welcome to the 5th entry in the series of Wonderful Adventures of Brushy Ception in the World of Eorzea. It has been a long time since a new chapter was written about poor little Brushy and his friends, but it’s good to be back.

OMG guys I’m baaack! I mentioned in a previous post that that would be my last FF14 post, but I lied. Yea, never be too final about things, especially MMOs. Well, FF14 is still the best MMO out there right now after all these years, so I kinda go on and off with its subscription. I’ve finally reached level 60 after much grinding and hard work, and have time to post something about my new experiences with the game and its expansion ๐Ÿ™‚

So of course the first thing to do would be to rearrange the messy hotbar :/ and redo the macros!
ffxiv_06282016_085705
I’ve missed this huge bird so much ๐Ÿ˜€

So I heard you can fly in Heavensward ._. Not sure how it would be like, but everyone advised me to unlock it quick. Like, it’s really the top 2 priority, the other being main story quests (MSQs). So, here we go, completing the A Realm Reborn MSQs before we can unlock Heavensward content.

 

Main Story Quests!

Back when I first started playing FF14, I skipped most of the cutscenes, even the voiced ones (nuuuuuu) as all I cared about was leveling, maxing out my character, gearing and dungeons. Somehow, I am still unclear about what 2.0 MSQs were all about, and that made me regret a little. This time round, I decided to take a different approach and watch all the scenes ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Scions of the Seventh Dawn, hi again.
ffxiv_06292016_113054
Things got ugly pretty quickly as the nasty Ascians appear. But shiny Nexus ๐Ÿ˜€
ffxiv_06292016_120507
Really I was not prepared for people to die so soon…

So I realised I look too formal with that hairstyle, so let’s get a makeover done.

ffxiv_06302016_105151
Never too busy to get a new look, amidst dying NPCs and the worsening situation with the Ascians.
ffxiv_06302016_224108
K, so things escalated quickly, and I got angry.

So long story short, and let’s not spoil too much of the story here, the scions got into trouble and died ._. And I got pissed, as seen above. But who was I pissed at? I would point my fingers at none other than Alphinaud. This pesky little thing has always been proud and annoying. Yet he’s still alive and kicking.

ffxiv_06302016_224356
One might ask: Why isn’t this Alphinaud boy ded?
ffxiv_07012016_100648
Poor Tataru T.T
ffxiv_07012016_100937
Bye Minfillia Waifu. You have been mostly useless throughout the whole story anyways.
ffxiv_07012016_111611
And leaving me to babysit this boy further D:

ffxiv_07012016_111852
Finally, new content!

So we shall continue with the story next time.

 

The Dark Knight :3

So I decided to play Heavensward cos of Dark Knight. I enjoyed playing a Tank class in FF14 on a Paladin, but when I heard there’s gna be a Greatsword-wielding tank in HW last year, I was thrilled. And finally, I have the chance to really play one.ย 

ffxiv_07012016_114905
Of course we must start the path of a DARK Knight with someone who’s dying.
ffxiv_07012016_115001
But somehow stands up again the next moment.
ffxiv_07012016_115500
I love newbie outfits. Too creative and a pleasure on the eyes โค
ffxiv_07012016_115730
And look at those skill icons! SO EDGY!
ffxiv_07022016_103459
A true Dark Knight belongs to the Dark Side.
ffxiv_07032016_083740
Just an hour ago, I was standing in this nicely-decorated room in a suit and shiny weapon. But I think rags and broken armor and steel symbolize an adventurer more appropriately.
ffxiv_07102016_114212
So… level 50 Drk quest. Who do we fight other than our best bud?
ffxiv_07102016_114327
OPEN THEM EYES!
ffxiv_07102016_114343
Classic FF14 style, always end up fighting a doppelganger of ourselves. But that’s some badass looking armor and sword.
ffxiv_07102016_114358
I think my sword will break within 2 clashes.
ffxiv_07102016_114730
Hehehe. Die, antiBrushy.

ffxiv_07102016_115115

This is not the end of the road for the Dark Knight class though. The story continues with level 52, 54, 56 and so on quests for new skills and plot, which I shall not divulge here. But be rest assured the 50+ skills in Heavensward are really cool and good.ย 

 

That’s All FER NAO~~

It’s finally the end of Part 5! Of course, there are still many more peektures of “Brushy the Dark Knight” waiting to be uploaded and shared D:

For this chapter’s ending, let’s take a look at some brilliant fashionย โค

ffxiv_07042016_224253
So I bought my copy of Heavensward on Amazon the other day with the help of Pie, and this was included in the package deal: Butler Suit.

ffxiv_07042016_224301

ffxiv_07062016_140622
Along with this Original Fat Chocobo and many other cosmetic items. Unlike its yellow fat sibling, this chick can’t fly ๐Ÿ˜ก

ffxiv_07062016_113234

I’ve wanted one of these Japanese-styled garments for a long time since it was first introduced into the game, but I was always away from the game when the event arrives in Eorzea… But now that it’s on sale permanently in Mogstation, here we go.

ffxiv_07062016_114440
I found the original pair of shorts (underwear) that belongs to the set a tad too short for a decent male, so I ended up choosing another bottom piece from the market board. Too bad the pattern cannot be dyed red D:
ffxiv_07062016_114451
Greatswords are great ๐Ÿ˜›
ffxiv_07212016_222628
Esoterics armor. Please don’t mind the minion of light. P.S. Idyllshire is an awesome place.

Apart from fabulous fashion, we welcome Pie and Bunny back on board too :DDDD

ffxiv_07062016_100536
Bunny is lazy as can be. We need to drag him along roulettes and stuff to even put some more EXP on his bar.ย 
ffxiv_07062016_100813
Main scenario roulette too much work.ย 
ffxiv_07062016_125031
Let’s hope a 4th joins us soon!

[FF14] Back and New to Heavensward

So, I missed FF14 and decided to reenter Eorzea.

Of course, the main reason is to admire my beautiful, hard-earned but outdated Nexus skin.

13502595_10154981959887571_9158099924446296094_o

Though there are now plenty of other nice new skins, though there are now Anima weapons, though this newbie Curtana/Holy Shield skin no longer signifies nobility, I shall cherish this Nexus skin and not move forward along the Zodiac line for Paladin weaponry. White glowy circle on shield looks so protective and the swordย ๐Ÿ˜›ย I just like the Nexus animations too much to give it up ๐Ÿ˜€

I think I’ll get Anima (or TRY to, depending on how difficult or time-consuming it is) on Dark Knight, and maybe continue the Zodiac line on Monk. We’ll see… For now, let’s enjoy the game and story as it should be!

[FF14] [Screenshots] Adventures of Brushy Ception in Wonderful Eorzea 4, The Eternal Bond

So it’s Valentines’ Day today, and this post was specifically reserved for this day (sheer procrastination). But anyways, I ignored the event quests again, but nice decorations and stuff around the cities, I can have that.

Thus, Happy Vday to all ๐Ÿ˜€

 

The Eternal Bond

ffxiv_01282015_072105

So to start off with the marriage in-game, you have to go thru the Mogstation and pay up ._. Then you can bring along the bracelet (proof of purchase) and complete a series of simple travelling quests. In the meantime, you will receive your wedding suit, embrace emote and a new hairstyle ๐Ÿ™‚

As usual, I will play around with dyes. But as of now I’m still in the original terebinth color, so colorful colors actually don’t bring out a better look ._.

This dye was on for a mere 5 mins.

And so off we go completing the simple quests…

So I found out what the "twelve" in Sanctum of the Twelve means.

After completing all required quests, you will be allowed into the cathedral or sorts to plan your wedding! The place is indeed pretty beautiful! Be sure to spend some time taking pictures cos you probably won’t return anytime soon.

It’s such a waste for nice places in game to be restricted to a one-off thing called “wedding”. They should bring more of these features into housing and stuff really.

ffxiv_01282015_090516

So we are now ready to preview the details for our wedding procession.

Simple stuff, but the previews for the style of wedding was quite repetitive since the first half for all 3 are the same and you can't fast-forward it.

Then of course, more posing around in the new suit…

And as usual too, it continues into the battlefield ๐Ÿ˜›

ffxiv_01282015_102236

So if I were this short, will I still be able to get married? (Cerberus fight)

ffxiv_01282015_122836

As a photographer (screenshot maniac), let’s do some lovey dovey poses ๐Ÿ˜€

The Big Day

And so the time has come for the real wedding. Sadly, most of the invited PEOPLE (no longer friends) did not turn up, and so we had to make do with A FEW guests and of course our family friend/savior/besty/4star-all-crafts/billionaire/sponsor-of-my-forager-gear/no.1-Bard-of-2014&2015/nastily-awesomely-nasty bunny. He’s awesome cos he’s not like Bella who skipped the entire wedding ๐Ÿ˜ก Still, we have to proceed with our wedding, since what we really wanted was to get our hands on the awesome 2-seater chocobo mount!

Sunny morning, patiently waiting for things to happen.

What's a wedding if there were no kisses involved? Well in this plan we are supposed to grow wings suddenly and fly and then kiss in midair. However, I couldn't take the screen in time, so catch the kiss in the video below :P

And it’s time for us to say goodbye D: If we have to say goodbye, we do it in a cool, awesome fashion. So we do it on a huge chocobo.

Now’s the time to retake the lovey dovey pic in HD. This is mainly due to me realizing why my screens were not as HD as I would have liked. By switching into fullscreen mode, my game resolution automatically changes to 1920..

New wing consumable item :D

Let’s end here today, since I have to leave the house soon. But of course, here’s the video of the 2nd half of the wedding procession ๐Ÿ™‚ I did not turn on the BGM for the 1st part so it’s horrible.

Crazy Jumbo chocobo action. Pie went crazy and jumped at every wall he sees. I can do nothing but clap.
