FFXIV Moogle Beast Tribe quest prerequisites

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward’s patch 3.3 added a new Beast Tribe Quest, Moogles & Dragons, that is for the Disciple of Hand classes. And since it’s the adorable (but sometimes infuriating) Moogles, it’s obvious that I won’t go without it. But I didn’t do all the Churning Mist moogle side-quests, so this is coming in real handy right now.

The top comment in the reddit thread has further details as well, so hop over and take a look.

Changes to the Collection Titles due to Dragon Nest R

DragonNestR

Out of curiosity, I checked out the Dragon Nest R patch in Dragon Nest SEA which increased the level cap to lv 90. And I immediately realized that with such a huge overhaul, there are going to be so much changes to Collection Titles.

I am actually pretty glad that I stopped updating the guides, because I would have to undo so much of my previous work that I may actually roll into a ball and weep.

Too Long; Don’t Read version :Β  Due to MASSIVE Nest and Dungeon changes, some missions and title collections have been removed. Some title collections that remain have been drastically changed. So, my Collection Title Masterlist and Guides are going to be very inaccurate starting from this patch onwards.

If you want to know more, here’s the important bits from the patch details if you’re a title collector or mission completionist. (more…)

FFXIV: ARR Heavensward Astrologian Wallpaper -modified-

With the Heavensward expansion coming soon, I’ve been switching to use the officially released wallpapers. When the ones with the concept art of the three new jobs “Dark Knight”, “Astrologian” and “Machinist” were released, I was disappointed to find that they had a nice plain almost white background because I can’t stand bright backgrounds. πŸ™

So I made my own modification to the Astrologian wallpaper, since it’s the one job I want to try the most.

officialAstrologianThumb

I could have gone with a simple one color background to just make it darker, but I remember downloading a nice background that I found some time ago. So I combined the two.

The stars in the background are pretty fitting, aren’t they? And here’s the result!

modifiedAstrologianThumb

While it is not the most balanced of pieces, I don’t think I did too badly for my purpose. Oh, the super dark bottom edge is deliberate, because my Windows Taskbar has transparency and any words showing through the tabs always disorientates me.

Travel to Ul’dah FREE via Gold Saucer

Did you know? If you take the Airship from Gridania or Limsa Lominsa to Gold Saucer, then take the Airship from Gold Saucer to Ul’dah, not a single gil will be spent?

I was so happy when I discovered it, since I’m the sort who prefers to spend as little money as possible on traveling. And I visit the Gold Saucer everyday anyway to buy the Mini Cactpot Ticket, or play a few rounds of Triple Triad on weeks when the Tournament is ongoing, so it’s like a free airship ride with a quick transit stop at the fancy casino. πŸ˜€

To get Tiny Rat minion

Reminded to self, to get the Tiny Rat minion, I have to complete the FATE named “Attack on Highbridge: Act III”, then purchase from the NPC “Chachamun” at Eastern Thanalan x22 y21.

PS. I added the bit of code needed to make certain FFXIV links show tooltip from The Lodestone! Yay for mouseover magic!

*Update 1* I got the minion! But not without trying to pull my hair off. Apparently, the FATE “Attack on Highbridge: Act III” is the fourth part of a chain of FATEs, starting with “Attack on Highbridge: Prelude”. Some kind fellow has written in detail about this, so send some love his way.

*Update 2* I checked back at the NPC to try buy another of the minion and Chachamun doesn’t want to sell it to me anymore! Boo! It seems there is a reset of some kind.

One of my sisters reported the same thing then proceeded to do the whole FATE chain again. The result is that Chachamun is now selling the Tiny Rats to her again, and she sent 5 rats to my mail so we won’t have to go through the FATEs again… *eyes our FC house’s mailbox suspiciously for squeaking sounds*

Bye, Dragon Nest SEA. Hello again FFXIV: ARR.

As mentioned in the Collection Titles Masterlist, I have stopped playing Dragon Nest SEA since the start of the year and am unlikely to pick it up again for a while, especially since I’m now totally absorbed in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

There are quite a number of reasons for this, and I would rather not get into details with them all. Except that a friend whom I befriended because of DN once commented amidst a discussion that Dragon Nest is not the type of game for me. I was a little offended then, but now, I realize that he is right.

I am a casual player who plays only within a small social circle, a quester, explorer and a collector. I can’t care less about bragging rights, squeezing out the most damage or playing the best DPS class. DN’s gameplay is exciting and different from MMOs I used to play, and that attracted me. However, it lacked far too many things that I need in order to enjoy myself thoroughly. And all that, I found in FFXIV:ARR.

TL:DR version: I have found a game that suits me better, so its world is where I have gone and will be staying for a long time.

As such, I will not be making new Collection Title guides or updating the existing ones. I may still share any interesting stuff related to Dragon Nest that I come across, but probably not a lot of those either.

Those interested in playing with me in FFXIV, come find me~! I’m playing in Hades server (JP), and my character’s name is Selceriar Lunaxiel. πŸ™‚Β  γ‚ˆγ‚γ—γγŠι‘˜γ„γ—γΎγ™οΌ

Guess who made an Assassin in Dragon Nest?

Fuwamaru-chan

How can I resist when his Japanese voice actor is none other than my favorite seiyuu, Midorikawa Hikaru? :3 Incidentally, I just named him at random and then discovered that his name “Fuwamaru” is a snack featuring a ninja in Japan. Weird sort of fate huh?

I promised an update to the Title Collection Book a while back and I apologize for still not updating yet. >_< Life has been busy, and other entertainment and games have captured what little time and attention I had to spare. I can say though, that we the raise of the level cap and a new class, I now have more reason to come back and play DN. πŸ˜€ So yeah, watch for more updates~

Collection Title Event?! OMG!

I was wondering why my web traffic spiked by a few hundreds recently, then I saw today that there’s a new event for Dragon Nest SEA and it requires unlocking Collection Titles!

Dragon Nest SEA – [Event] Title Delights!

Firstly, I haven’t update the Masterlist since the update. >_<; I’m sorry about that, especially to those who are looking for information for the Ultimate and Biological titles. Work and my personal life has kept me way too busy. I hereby promise, I’ll post about the new Collection Titles in these few days. πŸ™‚

Secondly, I noticed one of the updates in the October patch makes things much easier for Collection Title hunters:

All Calderock Village and Saint Haven’s [Abyss] dungeon mission can now be unlocked by entering the world zone (for example: Gray Ruins). Players no longer need to obtain or complete quests from Heraldry Scholar NPCs to unlock the achievements.

This essentially means that it is no longer necessary to complete the Secret of the Abyss, Birth of the Abyss quests! This is good news! It also means I need to update the title collection guides. ;_;

Holy cow, so many new Collection Titles!

And Achievement window UI renovation! Auto-roll NO! So many nice improvements!

I’m in heaven!!! <3

For the people I have made very confused, I’m talking about Dragon Nest SEA’s new patch “A Blast To The Past Of Your Dragon Nest Adventure Game Patch“. AlthoughΒ I was inactive for a while because the new content wasn’t at all appealing to me and guild more or less mass-migrated to FFXIV (which I’ll be starting next month), the new updates caught my eyes.

Dragon Fellowship and Deceptive Stronghold sounds interesting, though the one update I’m looking forward to is the monopoly like Exploration thing. More importantly, collection titles update. *-* The collector soul in me is so excited right now. Can’t wait to check it out ingame later.
