FFXIV: Weddings and Palace of the Dead

I’m feeling a bit better after my little rant post yesterday — thanks to all for putting up with that. Part of that has to do with a FC wedding I attended last night and part of that with the Palace of the Dead patch today.

It’s been a while since I’ve attended a wedding, and it was fun to see many FC members getting together, all dressed up to have a good time. Maybe I don’t praise my FC enough, but these are some good, fun folks. 🙂

Patch 3.5 also dropped last night bringing the Palace of the Dead. This is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. While work is keeping me from indulging in it until later tonight, what I read in the patch notes has made me happy. Not only does most of it seem to work the way I imagined, but the shiny weapon you get from it is ilvl 235 – a good alternative to Relic for someone like me. Also, reaching certain floors awards Tomes, which was an unexpected kindness that I didn’t see coming.

I’m fully aware that soloing this is going to be difficult from the start, but I’m sure going to give it a good try. It seems that you can keep all of your gear leveling, even if you roll back to level 1 to start the dungeon over. Depending on how difficult it is to level the weapon, 30 points doesn’t sound toooo bad.

I’ll let you know when I get there.

  1. It’s events such as this that keep me playing MMORPGs. Without this sort of interaction, with nice people, everything descends into a fairly meaningless number grind. I grew up hoping that MMOs would give me a virtual world I could escape into. They’ve pretty much all gone the opposite way, abandoning the over world experience, at least at “end game” for, basically, a lobby based dungeon system.

    However, we have to work with what we have, I guess. I’m in a nice FC for people with social anxiety issues and derive as much enjoyment from being around them crafting etc as I do from the stresses of the DF.

    At the end of the day it’s all meaningless numbers! 😉

    • I’m lucky that my FC is very accepting of things like social anxiety and such. I’m a very shy person and a bit of a hermit, so I need folks who understand when I’m not always up for being in voice chat every night.

      Glad you’ve found a FC that’s a good fit for you. 🙂
