Drow in FFXIV

Drow in FFXIV

Postby Amber » Tue Aug 27, 2013 5:27 am

Hi! :)
First, long time lurker and big fan of Drowtales!
I'm not exactly sure if this is the appropriate forum for this, or if this is old news, but... I picked up FFXIV and started playing the early access, and was pleased to see several important features in character creation: Dark Elves (known as Duskwight), two names, and ability to use apostrophes in names.
Naturally, I had to pay homage to my favorite girl, (so many feels!)
Image
The only unfortunate part is while the first and last names may be up to 15 characters long, the total name length must fall at or within 20 characters. Poor Naal here is no longer Val, or perhaps she is embracing her new life as a commoner...
For those not interested in playing, there's a free character creation benchmark that I enjoyed using to recreate (hair and eyes, didn't reset the face) a few other favorites:
Image
Mel, of course!
Image
Sweet Faen. What a bonus that "Odd Eyes" is a character creation option!
There's also options for dual toned hair, so the possibilities might well be endless...
Image

Apologies if this has long ago been discussed or is of no interest. It put a smile on my face, so I had to share.

I hope that there are still people here playing FF14! I've got a summoner (Achlys Noirterel) over on Siren that I play now and then. She used to be a duskwight Elezen but I hated how the summoner outfits looked on her so I ended up race changing her to the Miquote (or however that's spelled.)

Easy enough to fit a quest here and there while the little guy naps. :)

Nice! How are you enjoying BLM? I figure it must play pretty similarly to the THM spec. I'm thinking of pursuing that at some point. Much as I enjoy SMN, sometimes I enjoy a change from a dot-based DPS.

BLM is straight glass cannon type damage. If your tanks are bad, you're going to be pulling hate fast. the only problem is the old "stand n cast" type of damage--it's inconvenient on movement fights only being able to do Scathe and hoping for a Thunder or Fire III proc. Still, it's going to be my DD of choice *heehee*

I wanted to start off rolling DD so I could get into a healer role easier... that's my go-to playstyle in MMOs. Also, my character Mersedeh Illhar'dro is a healer in RH, so...

Ahah, right on! I have to watch on my SMN as well if there's a bad tank - I can't use Bane AT ALL and I have to be slow with my DOT application. ;_;

Uuugh, I hear you on the movement fights. I've been puttering around on my THM spec to level it enough to get a skill and man. Anytime I have to move around a lot it's pretty much Scathe Scathe Scathe. On SMN I don't have that problem, but my DPS tanks if I can't stand still long enough to reapply my DOTs. Ruin II only goes so far for mobile-damage. ;_;

Nice! I think I've always gone damage dealer right off the bat in all the other MMOs I've played, too. Dealing damage is just so much fun, though I enjoy the other roles as well. I actually prefer melee DPS, but I ended up picking SMN because it's always been a favorite job/class/whatever. As far as healing or tanking, I just tend to prefer to be familiar with the game before tackling those.

With Achlys, I'll probably pursue BLM and SCH at some point...not sure if I'll bother with a tank spec at all.
