I liked the ending of the Ivalice Raid where Ramza and Co. shield you from Ultima. That was neat.

But given I didn't know what Tactics was about until after the Raids came out, I was totally lost aside from the XII stuff, Agrias, and T.G. Cid.

Yeah, I had never played tactics, so any nostalgia and blatant fanservice was lost on me, all I saw were cool boss fights (mostly in Orbonne, I didn't care for the other two). However, having a Tactics-crazy friend explain all the various contexts to me drew a lot of interest in tactics, I'm probably going to completely legally obtain a copy of Tactics to play now.

Wait, Alexander is meant to be a reference to IX? I thought it was just, y'know, Alexander. Giant castle summon that uses light to attack.

Just when he sprouts his wings, since as far as I know that's something only IX's Alexander did. I don't really mind that kind of stuff since it's quiet enough that the only people that would recognize it as pandering are the ones that'd enjoy it.

A lot of his XIV design is inspired by IX but that is about it.

Thats about as referencey as Ifrit's design being inspired by X, aka not much.

Cruise Chaser is also a IX reference, being the ultimate summon from that game. The lapis lazuli mechanic is also a nod to how collecting those jewels powered up the summon further.

Was running Sigmascape 4's to upgrade my DRK's sword on my DRK when I was grouped with a WAR that outgeared me by a mile... but he refused to tank, saying he never did.

I know you can get by as an off tank in a stupid amount of encounters and never actually do your job but... is that common, despite that?

Some like to joke that every job is just a DPS of a different color. Some will go "hold my beer".

Especially wars, who can actually match up with some DPS classes at maximum efficiency.

Though that guy was being a dick, Hashil.

As a secondary war, I'm perfectly fine being the MT if the other tank doesnt feel comfortable with it

Still, if you queue for a role there's no good reason for you to not perform that role.

Plus, remember how in Eragon everyone cries "a single tear"? Yeah, just try that with One Piece and see if it works

In other news it looks like some announcements have slipped by

It looks like the block on the timer slipping on Aether and Primal have resumed, so the housing market on the high pop servers should start rolling again. They also very casually hinted through that that 4.5 part 2 will be around the 1st or 2nd of April, with a third patch sometime at the end of the month that might have the world visit system.

Mar 19th 2019 at 4:08:26 PM

March 26 is 4.56. April 1-2 is EU Datacenter expansion.

Mar 22nd 2019 at 4:39:28 AM

Hrothgar and Dancer are getting announced really soon more likely than not.

How do the Japanese only fan fest work for folks who don't speak the language? Do they have a stream with subtitles or something?

This actually something from pre-alpha. That's pretty clever given we're going to the First.

The First has some very Lightning Returns vibes about it.
