FFXIV: The Hunt Begins

The Monster Hunter crossover in FFXIV launched this week and the community in general has been going nuts over that cute little Palico up there. The minion was the one thing I really, really wanted out of the event, so thankfully, he’s not too hard to get.

While I’ve unlocked the trial last night, I have yet to run it. I was waiting for friends to be ready to run it with me, so that probably means tonight, if all goes well. But in the meantime, just look at the cuteness… especially the Miqo’te dialogue interaction!

The vibes I’m getting from this event is that it’s been warmly welcomed. The EX drops a mount and tokens (in case you’re not lucky enough to get a mount drop), but it doesn’t sound like the chance at the mount is too hard to get. Once you’ve mastered the fight.

This might be one EX I actually try to do. I’ve seen the mount in person, and it looks pretty awesome. Since it’s a 4-man, it might not be too difficult to rope a group of friends into farming it together to share the drops.

I’ve been advised to practice normal mode first, though! I’ll let you know how it goes!
