FFXIV is in a bit of a holding pattern for me while waiting for Stormblood to come out, but I'm still plugging away at gearing up different roles and getting all my jobs to 60.

I finally gave "One Tamriel" a look.

 

It's fine. to the point I'd almost call myself addicted to it. On the other hand, my level 5 character felt about the same as my VR6 character, so it seems like there's no real feeling of progression anymore.

It's a rare drop from the final boss of the level 55 dungeon "The Aery." But it's rare enough that I've never even seen it drop, and I've run that dungeon many many many times. So to get it randomly from the Palace of the Dead was a very nice surprise.

I have never seen it drop either and I have many jobs to 60 at the moment!
