Final Fantasy XIV Game - Shaken Resolve

I’m honestly of the belief that Tataru doesn’t give a Lalafell’s butt about anything.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Tataru Is Nonchalant

Her reaction to me coming back from The First was completely nonchalant, like, “Oh hey, it’s you, anyway, let’s go somewhere completely inconvenient to meet up with F’lhaminn.”

Nice to see you too, Tataru. After everything, we’ve been through.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Flhaminn Meeting

I ran over to where I was supposed to meet F’lhaminn, and dreaded the fact that I had to run to the top.

But then I remembered, I can fly in old areas now! I quickly hopped onto my whale, and like an alligator out of the swamp, slowly hovered up until she got a good look at my cool whale. Are you impressed?

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Tataru We'd head back then - I am Sure It Is Important

After a short (and almost completely useless conversation that could have been an email), Tataru calls me back to the Stones.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Krille You Are Here - Good

It’s there where we reunite with Krile, the better Lalafell. Not sorry, Tataru.

Krile was going on about something about Aether being unstable. I’m not exactly sure because I was tweeting during this part, eating a cookie in one hand, and hitting the screenshot button with the other. Don’t ask me how I was doing all three at once.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Krille There Is another way - I am sure of it

I did put 100% focus on the dialogue after she told me that the answer lies with the Exarch. Oh, you mean the guy who brought us to The First in the first place? He’ll know how to bring us back? Shocking revelation.

I teleported back to the Crystarium and looked at the map. It’s now full of different unlock quests. Don’t mind the side quests; this is what all my area maps look like because I don’t think I’ve done a single side quest unless it was to unlock something.

I keep telling myself, “I’ll do this to level another class,” but then I end up leveling through daily roulettes and FATE grinding that the side quests end up ignored like my leftovers in the fridge.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Urianger Nay milady - With apologies to all

I went into the Ocular with Alisae, Y’shtola, Alphinaud, and Urianger, joining shortly after. When Y’shtola asked where Thancred and Ryne were, he decided to answer in Urianger fashion:

“Nay, milady. With apologies to all, they beg leave to pursue their investigation of the Empty to its conclusion. Should matters here demand their presence, however, they did assure me that they would make themselves available.”

Urianger, please, just say

“Thancred and Ryne can’t come to the door right now. They busy, but if it’s an emergency, hit me up I’ll let them know.”

That’s all you need to say, Urianger, dang.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Crystal Exarch Ere I Begin - It must be noted thta I am by no means a gifted mage

The Crystal Exarch finally kicked off the meeting by telling us what we already knew: The Crystal Tower was his rechargeable battery pack, but he’s willing to use all of his energy (killing himself in the process) to bring us back.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Crystal Exarch Ow

That’s when he was brutally assaulted by Alisae.

Leading to an anime moment.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Urianger We would need only to ensure our souls safe preservation

After things calmed down, Urianger figured one way they could get back was to put their souls into some rocks, and then, hopefully, they can jump back into their original bodies.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Crystal Exarch No Sooner Had I begun to make my plea

The Crystal Exarch figured the only people who could help were people who assaulted him when he asked for help with another issue, but sure; they sound reliable.

Like someone recommending a bad car repair shop because they’re the only ones who offer the service.

Final Fantasy XIV Game - Crystal Exarch Unlike me however you have curried favor with fae folk

But it’s okay. Since we’re cool with fairies, they might not assault us. Sounds fair. Off to figure out how to get your souls into some rocks. Doesn’t sound dangerous at all.

  1. Man, the way you write this I have to wonder why you’re even playing the game. You seem like the type that’d be happier just buying a story skip package.

    1. Been playing since day one of 1.0 and love every moment of it. I just like being facetious when Urianger speaks.

    2. Lol right? I knew something was off from the start with Tataru. Don’t misunderstand. I dislike Tataru too, but the REASON she’s so nonchalant is because YOU (the WoL) are not stuck like the others and have been routinely visiting home.

      If you’re gonna keep churning out XIV blogs to ride the hype into 6.0, you might want to put down the cookie and start paying attention

  2. Dont worry about bob’s comment. Sarcasm clearly flies over people’s head. There’s a lot of filler with post Shadowbringers content so filling it in with deadpan/sarcastic humor is appreciated
