The Beauty of FFXIV
Today has been a rather quiet Sunday for us in FFXIV. We reached a point in our story questing where we could not progress until level 40. That meant we had to do some Fates and other quests to get us nearly a full level. I don’t mind Fates, personally. I think they are a lot easier to zone out to than having to constantly go from one quest objective to the next. Graev truly hates them, though. We kind of butted heads on the subject, as Graev feels they are completely out of place in the world. I see his point, but I see the sidequests as the same thing only more annoying.
We’re moving along nicely. I think we’ll probably be 50 in a week or so, and then we’ll begin either leveling alts or thinking about some end-game activities. I know our guild is busy doing all sorts of fun things like leveling crafters, running high-level Fates, and just enjoying the game for what is has to offer. FFXIV is a themepark, but the atmosphere and presentation are so dang good.
Anyway, I thought a nice way to end tonight’s little post would be to show off some of my favorite looking locations in the world of Eorzea thus far. Enjoy!
I stared at this view for about 20 minutes. Graev logged off and I moved around to find the best view of the area and just took a dozen screenshots. I love how you can see the crystaline formation in the distance, and really see the water, sky, and just gorgeous ruins.
I think this might actually be a close up of the crystals in the distance from the previous shot. Throughout the world there are these crystal areas. I really have no idea what they are supposed to be, but I feel like they each represent one of the primals. Anyone know what these are?
Here’s a really pretty shot I took of my character on his unicorn. This little sanctuary had a flower garden. I couldn’t resist capturing an image of the colors just erupting off these flowers.
This is the ominous looking Central Coerthas Highlands. The zone is gloomy, snowy, and quite large. My least favorite zone so far, but there are a few great vistas with scary looking fortresses in the distance.
