Do you remember the time when you wrote your first post? How great you must have felt as your blog was up & running.

The experience of a Final Fantasy XIV fan festival is a distinct one, a strange beast that sort of creeps into your existence even if you’re not actually there in person. I was not in Paris this weekend, but I still woke up insanely early on Saturday to cover the keynote as it happened, and I spent most of the next two days poring over even the slight details that really don’t directly hinge on anything. Honestly, most of what I personally needed to know was on Saturday, but you still couldn’t ignore the flurry of information, speculation, and so forth. If you were keeping track of my predictions, well… I did pretty well.

The job that really needed some changing was Monk, and even that was more about tweaks than a complete teardown and overhaul. So yes, this is the orle that covers four separate jobs, but the mercy is that all four jobs are pretty straightforward to discuss. Ninja In short, Ninja has been changed around to emphasize its pseudo-magical nature. Ten Chi Jin is still there, but … [Read more...] about Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers tour: The melee DPS
