    I keep meaning to take some screencaps for you re: sketching purposes, but my brain is a sieve and I keep forgetting until after I've shut the game off for the night. x_x I can grab some this weekend if you still want some?

    Sudden urge to infodump about zippers

    Until i got this job they were very mysterious and frustrating things but it turns out. It is fairly simple to fix a lot of common zipper problems with the right knowledge ! And you can do cool shit with them!

    It is a little bit funny when people treat me like a wizard for being able to fix them tho. I promise i do not have magical powers, you just gotta know how they work!

    4% enrage on O10S aughfhfbfyfhf /hits dragon w my whm stick

    We keep having really annoying server hiccups that fuck w bulwark phase but hopefully we'll get it next week. I WANT TO BELIEVE

    I mean we're doing pretty well for only raiding like...barely 4 hrs a week but still. I feel like we could have cleared tonight without mechanical fuckery out of our control :( got the whole "Akh Morn during Exaflares" bullshit down finally at least. (Seriously that is bullshit. Whoever designed this fight is pure evil)

    ...anyway I've seriously been spoiled by FFXIV's glamour system bc i got on Maplestory 2 for a bit and was yet again trying to figure out an outfit that doesn't look like crap and failed

    It's just. God. SO BAD. Clearly designed to squeeze the most amount of money out of people who are willing to spend exhorbitant amounts for virtual outfits.

    1. Glamour items ("outfits") and gear with stats are completely different items.

    2. Only certain pieces of gear can be turned into outfits so you can have the appearance glamoured over your actual gear.

    3. All the other cosmetic outfits are cash shop

    4. They range from $3-$7 per piece for very basic things, mostly plain shirts and pants and various sunglasses. Fancier outfits (a.k.a. the good stuff) are mostly only from rng lootboxes you can only buy w real money. Each lootbox costs $3 and contains a single random item. If you get an item you don't like you can turn it into coins but you only get 1-3 coins per piece. You can buy the fancier outfits with these coins, but they tend to cost upwards of 20 a pop. So that comes out to like $50-$70 on the low end if you want a single specific outfit

    5. If you want to convert a piece of stat gear into an outfit item, the only way to do so is by using a specific item purchased only with the coins above. So depending on rng it costs $9-$21 to turn a single piece of gear that you ALREADY HAVE into a glamour item to put over other gear.

    (For reference: most expensive cash shop outfits in FFXIV are $18 and you get 4-5 pieces usually (head, body, hands, legs, feet) and sometimes a hairstyle, no rng needed)

    I just...want pants...because half the gear turns into underwear/miniskirts on female characters...and i found a piece of gear that remains pants but discovered I'd have to pay a frankly absurd amt of money to convert it and noped out

    I could buy a pair of normal pants w the currency i have but they just look like...jeans. i don't want to wear jeans w a fully armored top half lmao. It looks stupid as hell

    Virtual fashion is sufferings

    See the top for this set is super nice but the bottoms are.... :/ why do you let me have a fully armored top and take away my pants!!!!

    Also there is a tiny pumpkin on my head bc its the only hat item that doesnt hide Keten's glorious hair and otherwise id have to pay $14 to be able to hide gearslots

    20190313_110138.jpg i went looking for a faceclaim for him bc i was having a hard time translating his character model into my style and Ryan Potter is basically exactly how i was picturing him in my head. Dang.

    20190313_105748.jpg KHX Browser Enzel vs KHUX Enzel

    Technically they should be the same age bc of the reboot but i was headcanoning that second version lived longer bc everything didnt go to shit immediately >.>


    (For those who don't know: the current mobile game was originally a browser game. To justify the reboot as a mobile game when they shut the browser game down, they essentially had the world end, your character dies, but the universe gets rebooted and everyone's memory wiped bc of a certain group of NPCs planning ahead (sort of) which is why you're repeating all the same stuff again in the mobile ver, except this time it comes with reoccurring nightmares about your previous death :') )

    My co-healer requested we go back and beat O4S after 11 (before moving on to 12) to get the snake mount for everyone. We never beat it, got stuck on second phase for months & had a bunch of rl nonsense happening & member shuffle. Consequently we went straight to 9 and havent beaten 3-8. Anyway.

    I've never been in as healer (i tanked it iirc) but i feel pretty confident about it. I mean yeah, higher ilvl means we'll be skipping mechanics. But anyway. I like tanking but healing is def the most natural for me?

    Idk why i thought of that suddenly (hoping we'll clear O10 tonight? Knocks on wood) but i had a vivid image of

    " *hits Exdeath with a stick* GIMME YOUR MOUNT, YOU DECIDUOUS SONOVABITCH"

    White Mage auto-attack makes this really satisfying noise. Even tho its basically useless for healers i have it toggled on out of habit from tanking and so occasionally I'll run past Middy during fireballs phase and hear


    and have to try very hard not to start giggling

    Just the image of me whacking the ankle of this giant dragon angrily with a stick

    We didnt clear...everyone was off their game including me & our DRG had an audio driver problem and was doing it without sound with his phone on Discord for callouts...augh. hit 3% enrage tho. Friday we try again! (Tbf we only got like an hour in bc of said computer troubles and then clearing Chaos took 3 pulls because everyone was a bit off...i stood in something dumb and died during Earthquake bc my brain short circuited or sth x.x weh. p sure i caused 1-2 wipes on Middy too. I felt fine but i guess i was weirdly spacy.)

    There is a cat in our neighborhood...im assuming stray because we're in a city but who knows. Occasionally it comes by our windows and meows, i guess bc it hears us talking? It's usually at night and it scared the crap out of us once bc the window was open for air but the curtain was closed, and its meow sounds like...a person imitating a cat. Legit. Its actually kind of funny now, we've heard it come by a few times. (Its definitely a cat and not a person bc you'd hear the footsteps of anyone getting that close to the window, but since we're ground floor and have curtains I've never actually seen it.)

    Anyway, i hope its doing ok bc its cold out tonight. Heard it come by earlier and meow off into the distance.

    Oh dangit. I wanted to draw something for the zine they do every year for Yoshi-P's birthday but i forgot and the deadline is tomorrow for submissions. I guess i could knock out a copic drawing but id be doing nothing else tonight...and i wanted to work on crafting...hrm.

    I actually did sketch my idea a while ago but i have to redraw it to refine/color it weh. I stalled because i needed to go look up reference of people playing harps.

    Friday night raid kinda sucked...it was just a combo of things, our shotcaller was sick so she was a little slow w some callouts, i was weirdly spacy again and died to some dumb shit i shouldn't have and so did other people...I'm just frustrated because i know we can do this! And also its something different every wipe that fucks us over so there's not like...something specific we can focus on improving aside from "die less often"

    Esp when we have a perfect run and then the server fucking lags and Bulwark doesn't pass properly and we die :|

    (I hate Bulwark as a mechanic so much...I'll take fuckin. Allagan Field over it. Jesus. Its not *difficult* its just so goddamn finicky about where and when it decides to pass from one person to another)

    At least i did ok w Hot Tail unlike on Wednesday, but one of the spin/flips killed me because i was a fraction of a second too late reacting which was embarrassing bc i hardly ever get hit anymore. >.< ofc it was an Earthshaker one so i died instantly. (So did 2 other people so i feel a little less bad but not much)

    We survived a goddamn Akh Morn with only 6/8 people alive because i healed my butt off (cohealer too & we had some help w mitigation from other people i think) which was futile bc we ended up wiping anyway bc too many people had died that run and dps was low. But. I was kinda proud of that regardless.

    Trying to remind myself that faster clears happen bc people have weapons/gear from O12S (which we don't so we cant be expected to clear that fast...still...) but sometimes i get bummed about it.

    I still have i380 pants because I'm waiting on the Savage pants but upgrading just to push gear an extra 10 ilvls seems pointless bc the little extra vitality isn't going to save me from instakill mechanics...eh. i guess what irritates me the most is that right now it feels like our clear is dependent on RNG and how stable the servers/internet is feeling and not actual skill.

    And the increeeeedibly lame design reasons given for that decision.

    Edit: reasons that smell like bullshit considering how cheap ronso look next to viera. They look like roes with rubber masks and clay hair. Even their animations and rigging looks the same as male roegadyn.

    I know the dev team is probably super overworked at this point but this was definitely an executive decision. I'm p sure most people would be content waiting if they got actual options. X.x i had a feeling this would happen but i wanted to hope SE wasn't....*that* out of touch??? Guess I was wrong.

    (Apparently there was some interview from ages ago that said something about the entire concept of male bunnies being weird and im like. You know male bunnies exist irl right. Thanks for being too fucking cowardly to make a fanservice race anything but women. :/)

    But god. I feel bad for the devs and i hope they understand they made a huge PR mistake but I'm also like "the people who are gonna suffer for this are the asset creators pulling 12 hr days huh"

    Its just...bad all around.

    Thinking about it, everything else they revealed in the keynote actually made me very interested where I hadnt been before? Which is probably also why the race reveal was so...meh.

    (I was heartened somewhat by the tumblr fanbase's response to the fat Miqo'te in the trailer being "yo SE wtf why can't my character look like that" and apparently there was some talk about working toward expanding player character body types in the future? So despite the whole annoying "using fat people as shorthand for moral decadence" thing, the responses were pretty good.)

    (Val would finally look accurate!!!)
