Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Game Changes and Info


I know that I was pretty excited for Stormblood for Final Fantasy XIV especially with the reveal of some new job classes. The one I was most excited for was samurai of course. When I played Final Fantasy XI samurai was my first advanced job class and I loved it. Bard was the next one and I enjoyed that as well.



With new content and job classes, there are changes to things. The changes for bard make me really happy. While I do like my bard in Final Fantasy XIV, I found myself frustrated often with the fact that it had basically been made into a ranger/mage class. I missed my old bard where it was about the songs and being a great support job. I wasn't thrilled with the idea of being a DPS mage type. The changes with bard now involve more songs and it feels more like my bard from XI which I'm thrilled with.

Siliconera has a great article with videos sharing a lot of good information about what has stayed the same and what has changed with the job classes and with the mechanics of the game itself. You can check out all of it here: http://www.siliconera.com/2017/05/31/final-fantasy-xiv-stormblood-videos-detail-all-the-skills-and-changes-for-every-job/

Which of the new jobs is everyone excited to try? What changes do you like best and which are you unsure about? If you've already started, how are you liking the new content? Let me know in the comments. Until next time, gamers!

Farewell, Adam West

I am really bummed to hear about Adam West's passing at the age of 88 from leukemia. He was my first Batman. I would watch his Batman TV series after school when I was a kid. Yes it was campy, but it was fun and I loved it. He was amazing and I loved that he could poke fun at himself in shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy, and The Big Bang Theory.

I think for many of us he was our first Batman and he'll always be our Batman. He may be gone from this world, but we will never forget him. Thank you Adam West for sharing your amazing gift with all of us and thank you for being our Batman and for many of us our first superhero.
