Well, 12 straight hours at it and we're about half done all we wanted to do. Alas, time to set it aside for the night and let you guys back onto the site. Currently, there's a lot of stuff under the hood that we're not opening up to the public just yet. Consider this an open beta of what little we were able to actually accomplish today. Hopefully over the next week we will finish up the rest of the update piece by piece, as well as work out all of the tiny issues here and there that are bound to crop up.
So, first thing you'll notice upon logging onto the Realm today is the mass of notification spam you received about Trophies. Apologies for that. We've completely revamped all of the Trophies. Check out our thread on what's new about the user trophies, and what we have slated for the near future HERE.
Second thing you'll notice is that I've temporarily set one of our new...
If there's one thing the team here at The Realm loves more than Final Fantasy XIV, it's our great community. We just celebrated our second anniversary a few weeks ago, and we're truly excited and humbled that this site is still growing and running strong. As we look forward to the release of Heavensward in just a couple months, we have been busy behind the scenes looking for ways to help this site continue to grow, as well as trying to find ways to get our current members the recognition they deserve for their amazing contributions to this community.
The first such member was ridiculously easy to find. If you don't know @Caimie Tsukino , or haven't benefited from her informed and friendly posts around the Forums, chances are pretty good you've read one of your incredibly helpful Guides.
Caimie's Guides are, without a doubt, one of the biggest highlights here at the Realm....
I thought it would be great if we could compile all the latest news about the first expansion for Final Fantasy XIV in one place, so the fanboys don't miss anything, and the new players can find everything they're looking for more easily. This is a massive undertaking, as new tidbits get released daily it seems. Please feel free to post any information missing - initially, there will be LOTS missing - and it will be added to the list by myself or the mods immediately. And feel free to add pictures. Pictures are worth 1000 words!

Personally i think i will finish leveling BLM, and finally get around to doing all of the extreme primals. I also think that i would like to finish collecting all of the mounts in the game, ADS will be the hardest i believe seeing as no one does PvP. Finally i want to finish decorating my house.

In this episode Fybrile drinks way too much coffee, Majaa's house gets finished, Kolossus speaks a little Chinese and Sword sings a song. We go over what we know about the Golden Saucer in 2.5.1, Cafe Eorzea, in-game marriages, relic weapons in 3.0 and a lots of other stuff.
The crew is extremely happy (and relieved) to get this episode out, as we've been having issues with recording for a few months now. Apologies to all of our listeners for the delay, but we're back, and we hope that you enjoy the episode!...
So with the drop of Patch 2.51 will be the release of The Manderville Gold Saucer, a place where we all can just take a break and have fun and relax. I looked up more information pertaining the release date and I got

We are proud to present the very first of our three-part update as we ramp up towards Heavensward, Update 1.9.9: "Community Connections". For this initial update, we have focused mostly upon improving communication and networking between members around the Realm.

Not to mention these cute new emoticons...

So what do you guys think? I'm ridiculously excited for the triple triad and chocobo racing in the golden saucer. The music for AK Hard had me extremely hyped. Godbert is a king... Overall this seems like another amazing patch from a company that knows the way to their fan bases' hearts.

Join us for a night of dancing, food, prizes, games, laughs, and some surprises as we take Old Man Winter...
I figured since there's a pet-peeve thread. Why not make one that's well an anti-peeve. An accomplishment you do that makes you feel proud that you're playing XIV instead of wanting to rage quit it altogether!
I'll kick things off myself.
-Just tanked Ifrit for the first time ever, NM and won.
I went down during the last 5% of the fight but I saw an awesome Arcanist use Topaz Carbuncle to kite Ifrit around while the healer heal bombed the Arc. It was amazing to watch. Glad I was there to witness it.
