Labyrinth of the Ancients

An awesome thing happened, I met a new friend that plays on our server through a mostly random twitter encounter. What do you do when you meet new friends? Dance the Manderville of course! Also I dip my toes into the Labyrinth of the Ancients sub raid of the Crystal Tower. Really enjoying it so far.

Amazing Neighbors

This week on Aggrochat we take up the challenge of Godmother from Alternative Chat and answer her 10 years 10 questions survey. Additionally I gush about the FFXIV community on Cactuar and the really cool link shell that is based on our housing neighborhood. Finally several of us set foot in Hard Mode Copperbell Mines and Hard Mode Brayfloxs Longstop.

10 Years :: 10 Questions

Today I deviate from my standard post to take up the quest of the Godmother of Faff, @AlternativeChat. In honor of the 10th year anniversary of World of Warcraft she is asking us the current and former wow playing public to answer 10 simple questions about how World of Warcraft has effected us. I devote this mornings post to answering all of her questions with a couple of paragraphs on each.

If you are interested in her quest check it out here.

Carried to Greatness

Last night I ended up doing something I wasn't really planning on. I ended up queuing for both Hard Mode Garuda and Hard Mode Titan... and getting through both of them. That means I am now the proud owner of Bravura the Warrior Relic weapon. I was absolutely carried through the fights but I don't really care... I have an awesome weapon as a result.

Also I talk about the major nostalgia crit that is the World of Warcraft 10th anniversary celebration and all of the events associated with it.

Belghast the Healer

And finally we are all caught up! In this post I include a rundown of the 35 stalwart individuals still in the running for the Blaugust grand prize, and the 2 similarly awesome individuals who got a late start but have not missed a day since. I talk about last nights live stream and my experience running dungeons as a healer. This was literally the first time I have actively healed in about seven years.

Tiny Conjurations

Since I have a tank, melee dps and ranged dps... I decided to start working on Conjurer so I could get some form of a healer. I also talk about all of the technical difficulties I have been having lately, and how much I am enjoying our return to FFXIV.

Lalafellication

I have been bad about updating anook, so running through and posting a bunch of articles all at once. In this post I talk about Hitbox which is all the more relevant now that the Twitch controversy is brewing. Additionally I talk about my switch from Highlander to Lalafell, and why exactly I decided to embrace the adorable and use my vial of Fantasia now. Finally I talk about the entirety of Greysky Armada going broke and purchasing a new house in game.

Hitbox Frustrations

I have gotten out of the habit of posting these manually each morning, so I am trying to do better about that. In this post I talk about my frustrations with the Hitbox streaming service, and just how many "features" are completely broken right now. Additionally I talk at length about my experiences melding with the Duty Roulette community on Cactuar and the Aether server group. So far I have had really good experiences.

I talk at length about my need to pair down in the total number of games that I am playing. What made the cut? Elder Scrolls Online, Wildstar, and Lego Minifigures Online... and to a lesser extent Warlords of Draenor Alpha.

Crimzon Clover World Ignition

Catching up on posting stuff from over the weekend. This post is the return of Steampowered Sunday as I devote some time to playing Crimzon Clover World Ignition, a really great entry into the Bullet Hell genre on steam. Well worth the money if you like that sort of thing.
