FFXIV: Tales from Tells – Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Over the weekend, I was actually working on finishing some of my many job quests I’ve ignored for far too long in FFXIV (gasp!). Man, Black Mage quests are a pain in the tail… but that’s not what this is about.

So, I’d just returned to town to complete one of my quests, and hit the normal cutscene…. when I heard the ping of a /tell pop up. At first, I figured it was a friend or a FC member poking me for something. But when I went to read the tell, it was from someone I’d never met before.

Their question was cryptic.

I pondered how to answer this, since I didn’t actually know why. Then, me being a writer who loves words, I became curious and decided to Google it. After reading through a quick article, which I thought was pretty interesting, I shared the info with this questing soul.

There was a bit of a pause… and I got this in return:

ask3

I guess he asked the wrong person if he didn’t expect an answer.

Just when I thought that was the end of it, I heard another ping:

ask4

Oh, dang. I didn’t know this one either.

And to Google I went. When he realized I didn’t respond immediately, it dawned on him that I was looking this one up, too.

But, “bruh”… if you can type these things to me, you can type them to Google for yourself. 😉
