Yeah I get it that many players report hunts in linkshells but then for fuck’s sake also discuss party invites in there, or in any case, /say, when everyone’s already at the given spot. Fuckin’ jerk of a behaviour to randomly shout for invites without any sort of preliminary as to what appeared and when. JFC.

"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."


"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

More like don’t store nude photos (or any other kind of sensitive material) in the cloud. ._.


if I’m playing XIV you can literally call me on skype at any moment and I’ll gladly have a conversation because soloing an MMo gets lonely

can relate

I really would be better off just jumping off a bridge or some such… everyone would, I guess. @.@

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

Patience level: OVER 9000.

Veteran rewards rank 8: Wind-up Gilgamesh and “Enquire Within” - a Hildibrand+Nashu portrait for housing.

I’m not sure what to make of the assumption that by that time, everyone will either have a private chamber (note what all is needed to get where you’re even able to buy one) or will be able to afford (and luckily purchase) a personal house.

Also: Hildibrand? Like, the most divisive character of the game, whom people either love or hate, without any real middle ground? Surely, his portrait would be more appropriately earned (crafted?) in his own questline, if anything… Why not a portrait of Louisoix or a replica of his staff that hangs in the Waking Sands for example?

Oh well. Don’t look a gift chocobo in the beak, of course, just adding my own 2 gil here.

Not sure how I feel about Lightning being back a third time. Sure, let’s be fair to newer players - on one hand, I completely agree with that. On the other though… About every third female character has already been running around donning the Lightning hairstyle already. Not to mention the fact that the amount of “Lightnings” and “Farrons” (and extensively, if a bit unrelatedly, “Strifes” and Clouds” and “Yunalescas” and “Oerbadias” etc) and their permutations are already so over the top that I literally want to smack my head into my keyboard when I see one - which is pretty much continuously. And really, an exclusive event, with exclusive rewards is exclusive exactly because of that aspect - only available to certain people and/or in a certain time-window. If you miss out on it, for whatever reason, tough luck, but that’s how it is. I don’t know why everyone keeps whining about this one (pretty much only this one), it already happened twice with enough time between the two occurrences to catch up too. Nobody whines about making the Gysahl Ring available, nobody whines about making the 1.0 FFXIV extras (CE, FFXI tie-ins, etc) available, nobody whines about basically anything else that has been exclusive in the game. And what I understand even less is why SE gives in - ok, anniversary; ok, make players happy; but there should be a line drawn somewhere. Or are they going to bring every exclusive event back every year in August-September? Make a different event with those characters (whether that’s Lightning or Shantotto or anyone else), with different rewards - that I could understand. That would make sense. This just doesn’t.
