Last night, a group from my Free Company, KoM, downed the final boss of the Dragonsong War in the Final Steps of Faith. This was not an easy fight to do in Duty Finder, and one of the guys in our FC was on his 9th try. But seeing we made up most of the party and we were on voice chat, I think we had the edge over a normal PUG. The battle was quite mechanically intensive and really required a lot of coordination from all people in the party. The times we wiped, it was often because it wasn’t understood that “STACK NOW” meant “EVERYONE MUST STACK OR DIE!” Yes, that means you, too, random PUG member. Mechanics aren’t optional if you want to clear, folks. That is the message that S/E is speaking loud and clear with this fight and what I’ve seen in the Wiping City raid. The final round, we got him down under 10% and I had to do my duty as the party’s dragoon: ie. sacrifice myself for the LB3. There just wasn’t a good time to be locked in … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Final Steps of Faith Down!
7 step of scientific method
Update: As anticipated, Steps of Faith got a nerf in patch 2.57. Hopefully this will help prevent stories like mine from replaying in the future. And maybe folks will stop auto-dropping this trial, too. Maybe. So last night, I reached the Steps of Faith Pain trial on Zuri while working to complete the main scenario story and get her ready for Heavensward. I knew that it would be tough to do using the Duty Finder. I just didn’t know that it would be near impossible. -Steps of Faith Begins- Me: Hello! Healer: Oh FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- NOT THIS TRIAL! DPS: I shoulda just run Ifrit HM four times to finish my poetics. Why did I roulette? Tank: Here, guys, I’ll save you from the pain! *drops* *Rest of group drops, too* Me: I… uh… actually need this for story progression. Guys? … Guys? That was how my first DF went last night. I knew that I was going to be in for a nasty ride. It seems that people hate this trial so badly they will actually eat … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Steps of Faith Nightmares

Wikipedia defines neuromarketing as: a field of marketing research that studies consumers’ sensorimotor, cognitive, and affective response to marketing stimuli. It can essentially be seen as the process of applying the scientific method to the business world in order to understand what makes consumers tick and why. It’s a relatively new field and one that shows a lot of promise for business owners, marketers, and advertisers to derive the most value for every dollar spent. The learnings derived from neuromarketing are broad enough to be of benefits to people working in many other fields as well — especially bloggers and online publishers, since a large part of their success also depends on understanding the minds of their consumers and marketing themselves. In trying to accommodate everyone, invariably, nobody is satisfied — and blogging is no exception to this. In order to apply this knowledge, you’ll … [Read more...] about 7 Principles of Neuromarketing That Every Blogger Needs to Know
How do you monetize your blog? If the answer is Advertisement, then I know you have a hard time generating money from your blog unless you have tons of traffic. When I started blogging, I thought Adsense is good enough to make some serious money from my blog. But the reality was different. Adsense requires a lot of traffic to generate some good amount of money. As I didn’t have a lot of traffic, I started looking for other monetizing methods. Then I came to know about Affiliate Marketing. At that time, I didn’t find any step by step guide about monetizing blog through affiliate marketing. However, I was able to learn some basic affiliate marketing tips from different blogs (for example, for Amazon affiliate marketing, I’m following Marketever). After having some ideas about affiliate marketing, I started trying it on my blog. It took almost six months to get my first affiliate sale. It seemed a slow process to me. Things have changed when I earned $1800 from a single … [Read more...] about 7 Steps to Monetize Blog With Affiliate Marketing In 2017 [Step-by-Step]
