I was flying through Il Mheg to do my Miner’s Crystalline Mean quests and the colors of this place is just astoundingly beautiful. Reshade is used to make the colors pop a little more but even without, it’s still a gorgeous area.
Moonfire Faire has returned to Eorzea! Again it’s at Costa del Sol and the beautiful beachside fireworks view is back!
With the new desktop I have, it also means that I can install Reshade again and take beautiful screenshots that I don’t have to use Photoshop on.
This year’s event features an epic fight between a bombard and a giant shark on two legs. Players have to dance to aid the bombard in defeating the shark and it’s just such a movie scene lol.
The reward from the event is a beautiful Hawaiian-inspired clothing set.
Finally got my Abroader Otter! I’ve been wanting one since it was announced, and handed my partner (our FC’s voyage master) with the mission to bring it home. It took him a very long while, because we didn’t have a single submarine for our FC then. But thanks to his effort and with the help of the other FC mates, we are starting to get Abroader Otters now!
I immediately brought mine to a beach to take screenshots and got these ones. 😀 Plus a bonus photo!
I wanted to post this set of screenshots weeks ago, after this set, but couldn’t quite managed to get myself to sit down and edit them until now.
These are the screenshots with my character in Orbonne Monastery, and is less about the scenery and more about the mood. Feels like my character went on an adventure to an amazing place, doesn’t it?
I happened to chance upon a Twitter post for a player organized event in FFXIV, where the objective is to enter Orbonne Monastery for the sole purpose of taking screenshots. It would be interesting, I thought, and it was always such a pity that in usual raid runs, we couldn’t stop to admire the scenery. So I signed up, and had more fun than I expected.
We went in unsynced with a total of 11 people and it went kind of smoothly at first. Then some time into the second boss fight, certain mechanics made it so much harder by killing two out of three alliance due to not having enough people to deal with it properly. Still, we managed to defeat them and the third boss, and then it was free time to take screenshots until the timer runs out and we could leave at any time.
For this post, I picked these four screenshots for the atmosphere they portrayed, and did some slight editing (basically just applying filters) to bring out the colors. Next week I’ll post another five screenshots. 😀 This time, with my character in them.
Screenshot taken when I was in Ala Mhigo area, doing my level 80 Red Mage job quest. The sky is just gorgeous in this game.
PS. I’ll try to remember to post more regularly.
This screenshot was taken around a month ago, when I was doing Pixie Beast Tribe quests.
Posted a bit late for last week’s FFXIV.SS, because last week was a bit of a chaos for me.
FFXIV.SS is short for “FFXIV Screenshots” and it’s a mini personal project that I just started.
I noticed that I have been taking a lot of screenshots but not sharing them much. Partly I wasn’t sure which platform I wanted to share them to, consistently. Then I remembered, I could just post them here and post links to social media instead. 😀
So basically, I’ll try to share at least one screenshot a week that is taken in FFXIV. That’s it. I don’t want to set any requirements or limitations, just 1 screenshot a week. It can be a screenshot taken years ago or a minute ago, can be edited for dramatic effect or completely unedited, can be a series of screenshots or just a single one, anything goes. No scheduled date or time. I can share more than once a week if I feel like it too.
These posts will be tagged with FFXIV.SS. I’ll see if I can make a gallery out of them somehow but that’s for later down the future.
