Final Fantasy 14 online log 2

I have returned with a new ff14 log, and I got things to say. I’m enjoying the game more. And it is a much bigger log, and I want to share.

The Navel

The lord of crags at first seemed difficult, but it was fun. Granted, I was overgeared by this point from farming I did in MSQ and with dungeons. I had an edge on the fight.

One thing I was not a fan of was phase 2. In phase 2, the boss’s heart or core exposed, and you are to attack the heart. For some reason, I could not attack the heart, but I had the boss aggro of the titan.

But even after that, the boss was fun, and I still enjoyed the fight, although phase 2 was weird.

POTD or Palace of the dead

Something I never did and confused POTD for haukke manor when my friends asked if I did POTD. But Palace of the dead was something far different. Each run, you climb nine floors and fight a boss on the tenth floor. And it is fun.

The only danger is the enemies leading up to the boss and the traps. The dungeon traps that can disable attacks to turn you into a frog, to be a land mine that I swear does 80% of your max hp.

You can find items that boost the spawn rate, shows you traps, and boosts defense.

I, Aluria, and Dae climbed the ranks. We cleared 1 – 10 | 11 – 20 | 21 – 30| 31 – 40|.

Final Fantasy 14 online log

It is time for a new gaming log for a game I fell in love with in 2021. And it is a game that everyone is playing, and I mean most people enjoy this game, and it is Final Fantasy 14 online, and it has been a blast, but I have been playing through the main story, and it’s great.

I have been thinking about Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis and making it my second game and base pso2. No point trying of me trying to farm gear for a game whose end-game gear is worth 4 billion. not worth it.

Sylphy interview

I wanted to do this. And that is to interview someone, and it would be fun to ask questions and see what someone feels or why someone does the things they do. :3

Q: Why did you make [blu]? Was there a reason for the guild being made or was it simply you wanted a guild, and you made one?

A: “Well, being a noob I was treated pretty poorly back in 2012. In the guilds I was in, [Abstract] being the worst offender, I was ignored, harassed, picked on. My friend at the time xRirix suggested I make my own guild and so I did, naming it [Spellbreakers]. It later became the guild you know today [Blu]”

Q: When did you start playing elsword, and Why do you continue to play elsword?

A: “Back in 2012, I was working as a volunteer in player support with another company known as Artix Entertainment, I retired from the company and was looking out for games to try out. On the back of an Otaku USA magazine was an ad for Elsword so I gave it a shot and it stuck really well with me. Started early 2013 if I remember correctly, picked Eve’s Code: Electra as she had just released. Mostly the reason I stick around is because of the friends that I have and the ones I have made over the years and for the love of the guild.”

Final Fantasy 14 online – A new change

Ok, so this blog post was overdue for the longest time and talked about my feelings towards pso2, and I did this a lot, but it end-up being something I would not do or something else. And my blog has a lot of blog posts on this matter.

I share my thoughts, feelings, and everything with my blog. And I have been thinking about this for a while. I have given Phantasy Star Online 2 and, by proxy, New genesis for roughly two years of my life. And that is a lot to devote time to a game that may or may not be good. It is something I try not to do, given this is blind faith I place into a game.

I placed my blind faith in too many games, alright, and it is time I cut down the number of games I play anyway to have one main video game. But enough, let us get moving, shall we?

Why I’m feeling this way

One game was able to leave an impact on me that pretty much caused me to make this blog post. And I guess, technically, it is two games, but I will get into that later. The main game for the section is Final Fantasy 14 online or FF14.

Something about that game left an impact on me. And I don’t know, but it is not a fleeting feeling either. But there was another game I have been trying to keep up with for some reason, and I don’t know why I’m trying, but I’m talking about Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.

It is funny. If I had never tried to play final fantasy 14, I think I would have been fine, but the game did something for me. I can’t say my pso2 friends feel the same way. And that’s fine, but I like this game and the style. And to play ff14 with or without friends.

And this is one game I want to devote my time to, and I need to drop these games I lost interest for. Find one game I can commit to and play at my pace, and I think this is great and something I need to do for a long time.

Too many games.

New year resolutions and goals for 2023

So with 2022 coming to an end and 2023 soon on the horizon. I should make goals, changes, and things I plan to do this time instead of me making these goals because of someone. I am making these goals for me and no one else in mind. These will be goals, plans, and things I want to do for my future.

And these are changes in my life and what I want to do moving forward. And some of these changes are needed, of course.

2022

2023

Things I plan to do before 2022 ends

Twitter

For this, it is time I do some cleaning up. And since I don’t roleplay anymore and for other reasons. I don’t see a reason to keep these accounts around. For those who don’t know, I made these Twitter accounts for roleplaying. Twitter back from 2011 to 2014. These were accounts for roleplay, venting, and whatnot.

These accounts are dead and still on the site as I wanted to leave them as a reminder of the great times I had, but given that Twitter could implode at any time, and these accounts were going to be something I look back laugh fondly with some people.

The accounts I am talking about are sonik and SorcererofKarth These roleplay accounts were something I enjoyed using back then, but I feel it is time to get rid of them and let them be free. One of the accounts my ex made help make in a skype call. And with my roleplay group defunct, there is no need to hold onto them anymore.

I spent a day in base Phantasy Star Online 2

I had a silly Idea, and that Idea was to spend a day in base PSO2. Now spending a day in base pso2 is something I can’t do, but I can spend time there to make up for it.

There is something about Base PSO2 that NEW Genesis does not have, and it is that charm. It has that magic feeling of a bygone era of MMORPGs that a lot of new MMORPGs can’t seem to capture that feel or maybe they don’t want to.

Being able to join an urgent quest that started without you is a great feature. If you joined late, you can still catch up to the players. To hop in and get in the action is great.

After that, I fell asleep in the base pso2 lobby and woke up after. And I got back into the action with the seabed, a fun water level. And can I just say I miss the random events you find when you are out and about on the expeditions?

They range from mini-boss battles to silly events to get rare drops to you helping out your Auxiliary in combat events. There is always something to do when on expeditions, and it is never the same from point A to point B. And that’s why base pso2 is a good game with some features.

Some small changes

Well, well, well. Time to talk about some things, but it is enlightenment for me and a step forward. I’m happy with this result. I think it is for the best. For me, health-wise, this blog post should be long blog post, or it might be short. I do not know.

2022 has been a crazy year, but I think because of this year, I realized something and realized something I should have since 2020 but better late than never, huh? It is better to learn the lesson later rather than never at all.

And after doing some thinking, I want to change the tone of this blog post to something happy and more uplifting. And let me begin. It is December and the final month of the year, and I guess the blog post I made here was something I needed.

Social media

Twitter and Instagram

So, this section was going to be about me listing off some things, like how using @onychaos gives me social anxiety and whatnot. I guess I can turn this around. I suppose I should start changing the way how I use social media.

I was worried and focused on old friends that I was blinded. Time to stop worrying about them.

And I think that is completely fine. No point worrying about other people. That is my wake-up message, and I’m glad I got it. And it is good to get the idea sooner than later.

I used to be bitter, holding on to the past when I should have let go of it and I think I am ready to let go of the past and everything linked to it. Look to a bright future with or without friends, and that’s ok, and I accept this now. it is a better choice.

Let’s talk

Alright. This blog post will be unlike the other blog posts and more over the place. Time to face my demons. This blog post won’t be seen by the person I want sadly. And something that weighs on my mind all to way back to 2021-2019, and I dare say even 2015. Doubt, thinking far into the future, and living in the past for comfort. And my mini breakdown on Twitter.

No one is at fault here.

https://media.tenor.com/bYmQ98273UUAAAAd/trevor-belmont.gif

Let’s clear something up. This is here to give an understanding of how I think, maybe.

Doubts. I have doubts that they go well online. I try to push these thoughts back that things will be ok, but my thoughts only come back stronger. I know whatever I do, friendships, relationships, something comes to warn me that they will end.

It is either I doubt my friend will be there in the future or that I never deserve anything good. When good things happen, these thoughts follow. It’s a harmful cycle that I hope to break free of it.

But even then, I have doubts it won’t go well. Most of the doubts come true, and I begin to wonder if these are even doubts anymore but a look into my future with whatever I doubt. It’s funny since I had dreams that gave me a peak into my future.

Thinking too far into the future has been a flaw of mine. It’s either too far in the past or too far into the future. Never the present. I look to the future as it is more important than the present. It is a harmful mindset, but looking into the future.

I see the future as something better, but I stay too focused on it that it does me more harm than good. What would happen if this changed or that changed? What would life be like if I can’t help but focus on the future?

And living in the past. One who lives in the past has no future, or along those lines. What my friends and ex told me. Something I laughed off as silly, but then I started to live in the past as it gave me a sense of comfort when friends I held close started to change.

Then it was not until I started to live in the past more as life began to change for the better and worst. And I would say for both as I recall past events fondly and gain comfort and peace at the cost of creating a harmful bubble, so to speak.

PSO2: New Genesis Headline (11/29/22) Thoughts

So, this is going to be a big post on Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis’s December update. And my thoughts about it are that I have a lot I want to say because I know other players were not too pleased by the headline. I would even say some were disappointed by the headline.

This blog post will be me talking about what I liked and didn’t like, what was good to show off and what was not good to show. I want to share my thoughts on the headline and what I’m looking forward to, in my opinion.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis: Headline

Let me set the stage. It is 7:59 Am, and players are waiting for the headline before some sleep, going to work, or starting their morning. A lot of people have seen the update video prior to the headline. And if you are wondering, what video? I got you.

We all saw the Stia trailer two months ago. And we knew about the class changes. Well, almost everyone knew. Back to the matter. It hits 8 Am, but we have to wait 8 mins for it to go live. Also, you need to subscribe to the chat for a day to chat.

After 8 mins, it goes live, and we get the news.

Happy Heart Panic Build 18.B (NSFW)

Alright, so I am late to this one. So to make up for this. I will give my thoughts on Build 17 B And Build 18 B and make up for the lost time. By the time I get done, Build 19 B may be finished.

Happy Heart Panic Build 17. B

Eclipse is a unique enemy that can fire a portal that can go the opposite way. If you are left, it will go right. And if you are facing right, it will go left. The enemy does not have contact damage only the attack (portal) does damage and will trigger a fun animation for Sam and Whispy.

Next up is Lil daisy. This enemy you can’t defeat but rather avoid since its attacks can destroy walls the player can’t break. This attack can trigger a unique animation for Sam and Whispy.

Overall, new enemies, and I like them. Build 17 was a playground to test out the enemies or whatnot. I would call this part 1 since the next build would be part 2, but I’m assuming here.

Also, don’t SHADOWBAN me, WordPress. ouo

Happy Heart Panic Build 18. B

Now to the big update, which depending on when I post. This blog post could be three weeks late to the party. Oh, man.

So in this update, there is a lot to talk about, and I miss talking about this game, haha.

Stardew Valley

It has been a while since I played Stardew Valley, and coming off of Terraria Master Mode to something more comfy and relaxed. It is a nice feeling. I guess it is a break till Link / whoever else plans to play since the goal of the co-op world is to beat moon lord. But until people are ready, I will talk about Stardew Valley.

I played Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch a few years back. It was a fun game, but it had shuttering issues on the Nintendo Switch back when I played it. But I loved it. And now I have it on steam and with mods that I can’t describe on WordPress, but they are fun mods to use and wholesome but not something you would use to show friends.

Stardew Valley is a great game that is more than a farming sim. It feels like terraria, Minecraft, and animal crossing with harvest moon. And it works out very well.

I can show you my modded Stardew Valley, and at least I can show you anyway. I have been having fun farming and doing quests to make people happy.

Once I learn how things work again in Stardew valley, I can start progress. I am playing a modded Stardew Valley. So It is unclear to me if the modding scene for certain mods for Stardew Valley will be active as some mods are out of date or if some mods will become unstable when the SMAPI – Stardew Modding API and content patcher get major updates.

I wanted to talk about this game because it is good, and it is worth playing like the likes of Terraria. There is a lot of content, and with mods, you add more hours of new content, features, and much more. See you later!

Sonic Frontiers thoughts

Sonic Frontiers. Oh man, what a wild ride this game has been. From fans and people feeling mixed about the game to feeling completely different after launch. From sega’s poor marketing to now, it has been interesting.

Sonic Frontiers is an open zone game and not an open world say dark souls, the breath of the wild, and so on. You do get the freedom to run around in these massive areas. And you have cyberspace levels that come as a second option* to clear a zone/island but you still need to explore the island to clear some of the story.

For me, I was worried that this game would be like Sonic forces which is serious at the start but becomes light-hearted. Or how the levels were going to be super short like Sonic forces but while that was not the case, for the most part.

The levels or stages were set up like Sonic Forces, but here, also had level layouts from other Sonic games like Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Sonic Generations, and more.

You have Green Hill, Chemical Plant, sky sanctuary, And a city stage as level themes. These are short stages but they are meant to be replayed and are not the main focus of the game since that was the open zone. being the selling point. If you were hoping the levels would be longer than Sonic Forces, you will be a bit disappointed here.

When Sega said this was an open zone-based game, I thought they were being fancy but no, they meant it, each area is a zone, meaning there is a load screen, a completely new area. And the zones do not connect like other open-world games.

Things I liked

Here is where I will talk about things I liked or loved.

  1. The open fields
  2. the combat (a bit simple but more later on)
  3. The story
  4. boss fights were great
  5. the RPG elements were interesting
  6. Some of the mini-bosses were fun to fight
  7. The boss’s music was good.

Terraria – Master Mode

I want to talk about this game mode. Terraria is a great game. I made a blog post about this game, which I will link here. And terraria has four world modes.

Journey Mode is the easy difficulty where you can play the game at your pace, and the game is easy. That’s what the wiki says.

The classic difficulty for the world is normal. Not too easy, but not too hard. A fair mode where you can enjoy the game at normal difficulty. Great when you beat Journey mode world or hoping into a new world.

Expert is a hard mode for those who want more out of Terraria. Normal difficulty is not enough. The expert mode will test your skill, and bosses have new ai.

Master Mode is a harder version of the expert mode, and I would say this is terraria unapologetically hard, where everything has to be ready ahead of time. Buffs, potions, armor, defense, and build large arenas for bosses.

So, why am I talking about Master Mode right now? Well, I have beaten Terraria in master mode. And I did it in a small world to speed up things, which is good and bad here. But I will get to that later on.

So slimes are a weak enemy and have become a threat in master mode. At least when I played, Slimes, demon eyes were rough. And when you think. “I can take hits now.” A zombie with a weapon can one-shot you. I should know, I got one shot by a lot of zombies.

After I died for the 100th time, I got ready to face my first boss in master mode. The one and only King slime and I got folded by the king slime. So I made a tall base with an arena close to space and in pre-hard mode. I summoned the Eye of Cthulhu, and I got washed, as the kids say.

But after the 7th go, I took down the eye after finding some good gear, then I went on to fight Eater of Worlds, and after dying more to Eater of Worlds, I was able to take Eater of Worlds down.

The Goblin army is something you want to be ready for because they are annoying but pale in comparison to the Pirate army, which will ruin your day.

Skeletron is so annoying. More so in master mode since the bosses have higher attack values and a bigger hp pool. But after many, many, many failed runs. I took him down.

Elsword progress

I’m back with an Elsword progress update and made some good progress and I managed to get quite far within the game. Or rather, I got far as I could go any way and I will be getting a desktop computer soon and this one should be able to run Elsword much better, here is hoping.

The computer I plan to get is this one at the moment.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/alienware-aurora-r12-gaming-desktop-intel-core-i7-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3070-1tb-ssd-white/6499893.p?skuId=6499893

So now I will wait and see what will happen.

So now for Elsword

Elsword progress

As I take time to learn what I need to do. I have made a good amount of progress. And it is great to see. I will update my Elsword page, which is here!

  1. Elsword el collection

El collection is a big one and will add a boost to your account as a whole. Giving permanent stats to your account will help out the new alt characters. Your main characters will get a nice boost in power and combat power. At the moment, there are 51 characters to add to the Elsword el collection book.

I’m 28 / 51 at this time

My goal is to get every character in the el collection book and then bump them up to the third job after that is done.

I think Stage 2 is good enough for where I am at in Elsword, some characters being at stage 3 would be better but that will come at a later date.

I have been doing this in my free time, and Mick is a kind fellow. Offered to join me in leveling up the alts to 99.

Elsword strangers and friends

—-Elite players—-

Daive or Shaive is very much an elite player. I think he would fit in with the KR players since he is not fond of NA. He seems to pull a 180 from something is so hard to this is so easy. again, he would fit in well with KR players.

Amelize is an elite player.

Sura

BadAsPanda

9thswordgod

Taong

ItsKylestia

CtrlAltEve

Eznii

—-Players on my level—-

Xandering (Mick)

UmbralLance (Umbra)

Elsword services

This is something I will start trying to do once I get my alts ready to farm the mats to craft things that players want or need. Now what those are is something that will have to wait for the time being and this will be a good way to make some money in Elsword.

Some closing thoughts

I will take my time in Elsword because I am nowhere ready for the new raid or even Berthe raid since I don’t have enough Adaptation, polarize, and boss damage to last within the Berthe raid, Story or not.

Unless I whale like most players in Elsword or have whale friends that buy me items to sell or whale, only then I will be able to catch up with the game, but even then, I would need a lot of El Resonance points to be able to last the Berthe raid and later content. I will need 400 El Resonance and some to enjoy the game and end-game content. And there is so much that goes into this.

I got a goal, and I will follow it though. I stopped trying to compare myself to other players since I need to have the gear to be strong, and I get one shot in the Berthe as I mentioned before. Once I make a breakthrough in progress, I can begin to catch up slowly.

That’s all, thank you for reading.

Fate grand order plans

So, I am getting close to saving the seventh singularity in fate grand order, and then next would be Solomon’s singularity from what friends say or have said. I plan to stream the fate go story until I clear the storyline, and no, I don’t mean lost belt. If I get to the lost belt, that is where my adventure will end.

Seventh singularity

And since HyperSonic7701, Mastakirby, and zombie stream fgo, there is no need for me to stream it as well. But I suppose I can stream fate go after I clear the main singularity story. I can make streaming fate go to certain events that pop up, and if I like them. I will stream fate go.

To be fair. It was all for HyperSonic7701, and I think He got an idea of my playstyle since he wanted to see how I played the game. Given Mastakirby server is somewhat full of elite players for fate go, I guess he wanted to see if I play the same as them, but I think he knows now.

The seventh singularity might be a long stream. The cutscenes I will skip some, if not all. If I feel this will be a long section. I will start streaming in the morning. If I feel it would not take too long, I will start later in the night.

If the singularity is close to being “saved” I will push forward but like always, if I’m running low on time (2:30 am), I will end it there as I have other games to play as well.

Solomon singularity

If this is not post-game, I will start this singularity, and when this is complete. Fate go will be finished for my things to stream. And I think that would be a fine way to end this mini-series.

It was fun having HyperSonic7701 there to watch. But now, he will have vods of me getting clapped to enjoy for a short while.

That’s all, and that’s the game plan.
