Sumasu Dreams of Ice

Main Scenario Quests

Started out with "OMG someone stole teh crystals!" and ended with a tea party. They are definitely prepping us for Heavensward and Ishgard. Lots of political stuff  that I enjoyed.

Yeah, it became clear pretty quickly why they announced Heavensward before 2.4 came out. It's seriously moving us in the direction of Ishgard. I thought it was a good addition to our existing storyline, and I enjoyed the political angle as well. 

He just needs a hug?
I do hope they don't go this direction for overall shoulder armor designs...

Very reminiscent of the ridiculousness of WoW. I'm not a fan.

Cash Shop: Debacle or Delight?

With the addition of the cash shop in FFXIV, it's been a hotly debated topic on the forums. We definitely have some strong opinions on this. First, let's limit our discussion to subscription based games only. We consider cash shops in free to play (F2P) games a little bit differently, as well as some hybrid models. F2P games need to make their money somewhere.

We are fundamentally opposed to cash shops in subscription based games. There are multiple reasons and yes, some cash shops are more palatable than others, but we are definitely against it in general.

Nophica's Bosom or Bust!

Our new coil static is having a grand old time! We've been weedkillers for quite some time, and are currently working on turn 7. The best part is that all the members now belong to our FC, and everyone is being embraced by the bosom. We couldn't be happier! Well, actually, that's not entirely true. We could, and will, be happier when we finally succeed in beating the rest of coil

Our coil static consists of:

Rubi - Milli - Rainy - Cinna - Balor
Yelta - Kariri - Radiant

We've added another raid night since we want some faster progress and we have a maximum of 2.5 hours a night to work on coil. We should have turn 7 down very soon!

We're also still enjoying a close-knit community of small free companies that play together, mostly under the umbrella of the Derp Squad linkshell. It's great to have our small group for coil and a larger group for running dungeons, doing Frontlines, having full alliances for CT, or anything else we can think of! Of course, our free company is the breast. :D

Twin Win

Not much to say really except that after a total of ~10-12 hours the new static murdered a dragon. Some had never seen the inside of turn 5 before joining the static and a few of us had seen snakes a few times. 

We are really proud of our group and excited to start working on turn 6 next!

Let Me Explain... No, There is Too Much. Let Me Sum Up

It has been a very busy time for us since 2.2 came out.

Yelta and Kariri (along with our good friend Rubicon) decided that our current Coil team was no longer making weekly progress so we bowed out.

Yelta and Kariri (along with our good friend Rubicon) decided that our current FC was not meeting our needs so we bowed out.

We hung out homeless and without a static for a week or so and weighed our options. Join a FC of a friend? Seek out a recruiting FC that might fit us?

Through the Maelstrom: Too Busy...Can't Talk Now.

We're staying super busy with the new patch, and we're having a blast. Instead of blabbering about it, today we've just got some pictures for you. Enjoy!

Not 2.2 related but pretty nonetheless
