Change The Curtains, Lay New Carpet, Play New Games

It’s been forever and a day since Siege of Orgrimmar was released.

Warlords of Draenor is released in a couple of months.

I’m feeling a reduced desire to play, I have to confess, so I took the plunge on Friday and bought Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and I’ve been playing it on and off. Sure, I have a few things to do before Warlords is released (Getting Garrosh heirlooms in particular) and I’ll do them on server reset days, but Raenah the Warlock is moving over for Raenah the Arcanist for the time being!

“You gave us the same name?! Ugh!”

World of Warcraft still holds a massive piece of my heart, but so does Final Fantasy, and you know what? 14 is similar enough to WoW to be familiar and comfortable, but different enough to feel fresh and unique! I enjoy being able to move the basic UI around and resize it without having to download an addon to do so. I like the fact there’s throwbacks to previous Final Fantasy games (Moogles! Summoner horns! Chocobos!). I like the job system!

Arcanist is the closest I could find to Warlock. They have pets, those pets can tank, they have DoTs!

And she hates it when you disturb her reading.

I still have things to do with Lixiu. Cat people haven’t replaced my love of Pandaren, and I will play Warlords extensively, but it’s nice for a change of pace to play something else!

"Fine! Go! See if I care!"

“Fine! Go! See if I care!”
