The Binding Coil of Bahamut - Turn III
Kneel before Zod!
Looking for FFXIV blogs to follow!
Hello! I’m new to the world of ffxiv and I thought it would be nice to follow some blogs and possibly meet up with people.
I’m specifically looking for Balmung players since that’s where I’m at (and to a lesser extent RPers). But it doesn’t mean I won’t follow you!
I’m real noob with this game and I play an elezen named Aiden Khontus.
So reblog this to the blog you want me to follow and I shall. (I’m triple-torch)
I don’t always post FFXIV stuff, but I tend to relatively often. Especially when it comes to being a red galka.
Once I’m finished my classes, I’m going to have a Harry Potter movie marathon and it will be glorious.
I finally look kind of like a scholar at this point! Unfortunately the only piece of Coil gear I’ve obtained has been the boots which aren’t BiS for me. The healery drops I need are mostly from turns one and two, which we haven’t even seen drop once yet.
So needless to say I’ve made loads of progress in my game despite the fact I went about everything completely backwards with my relic weapon. I jumped right on into running AK and ifrit hm and garuda hm securing all my weapons but not talking to the Rev Toll lady and getting things lined up. Oh well, Ifrit was easy and I love Garuda, the only problem is getting a good group, even with our FC’s awesome healers and monk there’s a duty finder someone always screwing stuff up. But I absolutely love meteoring the hell out of garuda and her sisters! Ah good times! So now I’m on Titan hm. I almost think I need to upgrade my darklight gear to myth gear for Titan. I’ve been asking my FC if I can just be dead for the whole fight and let them drag me through. So far, they’ve been vetoing that idea though I don’t know why!
I’ve also taken up crafting. I have been weaving a lot. I feel like I missed a lot of stuff by not understanding all the little things. I only recently learned how the convert my old items and meld. But again, thats ok because it has made me a smarter player which brings me to my new goal!
I have been helping a lot of my FC members get through the higher level dungeons like AV, which I enjoy but I have encountered A LOT of duty finder healers who just aren’t on the ball. I personally think there’s a new crop of players coming up in the ranks of the overall who just fate grinded their way up not stopping to learn the little eccentricities of their class and job. So anyway, I healed with my crappy physick throughout AV the other night and while complaining to the Songs ( my Bard and Healer FC friends) Grazia suggested that maybe I missed my calling and that I should become a Scholar which is exactly what I’ve been thinking for awhile since lillyfey is my tumblr hero! :)) So last night I activated Brave New World and took on the task of leveling a conjourer which has been fun and I’m already to level 10 only needing 15 since I was already 37 on Arcanist. So yay fun! Johnus is a White Mage and said , “Hey we can be healing buddies!” Although, I must say that I think my heart will always be in The Black. Someone called me a witch the other day on Garuda, hey its a compliment to me! But overall, I think having a scholar and white mage is a really a win-win situation and remarkably we have none in our FC.
So with all our FC Jr members quickly becoming level 50s, last night we decided that Tuesday nights will be our Chimera/Hydra/HM Primal nights and all us “old” 70 levels will do duties for the younglings, which I think is great fun! Lionel, out FC Primo, wants us all to be relic +1 weaponed and armored up so that we will not only be the biggest FC on Brynhildr but also the best! A great goal, I think plus we’ve already had a funding campaign for our HQs when housing comes out and we have some smart market board investors so we are ready! Also, you may see that Selene is wearing level 48-49 jewelry but there’s a reason for that: covert and sell on market board. Kuro is our level 50 jeweler/smithing/leatherer so he’s always making new stuff for us to wear and sell. So bring on the housing! Gah, I love my FC! Vongola forever! :D
Looking good! Titan can be rough to get past, but the best advice I could ever give is try to learn the patterns of the fight since it’s all about repetition. It’s a very mobile based fight, and getting out of virtually everything is key, which is really rough as a caster. Once you get the stages under control and can anticipate what he will do next, it makes the fight so much easier! Which will yield more damage on the heart and eventually his downfall.
Though the Garuda staff looks super cool and I love it.
YOU are wrong.He tortured Squall,remember?How Squall could not hate him?
Remember that Seifer was controlled by Ultimecia?He was clearly brainwashed.And I think personally that’s why Squall doesn’t hate him.If Seifer would have tortured him of his free will,so yeah,I would understand Squall and his hatred for the guy.But it’s not the case.The poor guy had his feelings hurt when he didn’t pass the SeeD examen and he decided to follow the sorceress because he wanted to be accepted and respected,and he thought the fact being the sorceress’s knight would fulfill his dreams,and Ultimecia took advantage of it.He was controlled and brainwashed.I really think he wasn’t able to think straight anymore.He was lost in his madness.The only way for him to escape that madness was that Squall and the Orphanage Gang stop him and Ultimecia.Again,it’s just my personal opinion,I don’t think Seifer is a bad guy.
It’s out of context I know,but I needed to say what I think about that whole Squall/Seifer thing.
Ah, I agree. I’ve never honestly considered Seifer a villain. If one of the party members (like, say, Rinoa [couGHS]) had been under Ultimecia’s control and done bad things, would people call her a villain? I don’t think they would… but idk.
Then again, I haven’t played the game in a long time, and frankly, it’s always been unclear to me when Seifer’s “brainwash” wears off. Like, is he still brainwashed when he brings Rinoa to Ultimecia as Adel? I can’t tell/remember. D; If not, then… yea, he done fucked up.
But, still, at one point he was under Ultimecia’s control and I think he did so many horrible things during that time that even if he WAS no longer under her control, he couldn’t imagine himself ever being able to come back from the things he did, and it colored all his actions since then. That doesn’t excuse him his sins, but…
I DON’T KNOW, I JUST REALLY FEEL FOR SEIFER OKAY ajhksdgwuyagd
Thank you thank you!!!I have a lot of Seifer feels too askhslfddghd
I half agree and half disagree with this. Seifer in my book has always been a sort of neutral character, never really being “good” or “evil”. I also don’t really feel that he was brainwashed, either. When Ultimecia originally shows up, she gives him a choice offering him to come with her to a place of no return—she doesn’t force him. I really feel he just gets too wrapped up in wanting to stand out and become stronger. Is Ultimecia luring him in with hopes of grandeur? Totally. But he has the choice to follow her and he does. This in direct contrast to when Ultimecia actually -possesses- Rinoa like she’s a puppet. Seifer’s involvement with her is entirely willing to my eyes.
The whole type of person he becomes is shaped by that choice, for good or bad. He is caught up in the power and the romantic notion of being a ‘Sorceress’ Knight’, which leads to him eventually torturing Squall for info and treating everyone else like dirt. Even after plenty of fighting throughout the game he says: “The knight has retired. I guess you could call me a young revolutionary.” Ultimecia was just a stepping stone, and even after being her knight he still has visions of power in order to prove himself.
This isn’t to say he’s bad, though. He’s a very dynamic character, and even when he was thought to be dead many of the people who knew him mourned him. And through the (many) battles with Seifer, Squall didn’t land a killing blow, which I like to think of giving him a second chance. Once of the great aspects of this game is how -real- the characters are and feel. They all have human wants and needs, and unfortunately most of the time Seifer’s needs are selfish. But even being selfish we can still -relate- to them. He wants to stand out and be noticed and respected, and that’s not really a bad thing.
Instead of blame being place on Ultimecia and her meddling, I think a bigger issue might be the fact that the GFs rob a person’s memories. Maybe Seifer wouldn’t’ve felt the need to prove himself so much if he had his childhood friends to lean on?
Then again, Squall and Seifer have always butted heads, so who can say. Good? Bad? Somewhere in the middle, I think.
