    Somebody still remembers me! Currently a return home campaign going on so I've spent the weekend back in Vana'diel, well minus the hours sorting out macro scripts so no difference there. Amazing how solo friendly it is now. Trusts give me party members whenever I need, I can get an xp/hr solo that I couldn't dream of in the past, already level 81. Some welcome QoL improvements as well, being able to warp between homepoints and call mounts makes life much easier. It's been fun visiting some of the old spots, tempted to pick up the complete edition and sub for a month to finally finish the story. Just like old times. After years of slaughter I've finally made friends with a crab.
  2. See what you mean now, there's only the option to buy the upgrade for myself. Because they've turned the normal version into a personalised bundle for the definitive version you can't gift it via Steam.
  3. Yes, add it to the cart, then when you go to the cart there will be an option to buy it as a gift.
  4. The Starter Edition (base game only) is currently free on PSN until May 26th, comes with 30 days playtime. If you don't have the PS4 version registered to your account, you can add it and also get the 30 days, but you need a PS4 to do it.
  5. Bring back V12s, add some carbon fibre spikes and we might have something here.
  6. Will be closed and that was the most interesting thing, what's left to talk about after that. Cement factories might be closed though which would be a slight plus.
  7. Things are bad enough as it is, let's not start inflicting things like Valencia on the public again.
  8. One more thing, to add to the convolution, for levelling crafters/gathers, don't forget Grand Company Supply and Provisioning. It's a great source of xp, at lower levels you can often get two or three levels per turn in with HQ items. I found it a good way to level multiple things together, would often gather my raw materials and then use multiple crafts to process them for the main craft. It's always worth checking the mogboard for the items as below 50 they're often pretty cheap even HQs. Post 50 things start to get expensive to buy, but usually not too bad to buy materials and craft, can also help find items to craft and gather for profit. Not sure where it is in the other cities but in New Gridania:
  9. That's for something different, what you want is the action collect, turn that on before you start fishing then what you catch will be a collectible. One other thing is collectibles also have different levels, the appraiser will show the minimum rating needed. When you catch something it will tell you it's rating and ask if you want collect it as a collectible. When you're sorted I'd start with the custom deliveries, they give bigger rewards and a good xp source.
  10. You can't, once you've unlocked the ability to do collectibles you'll get a new ability that you have to turn on before you start fishing.
  11. You have yellow scrips which are earned below 80 and has two versions, one earned by crafting and another earned by gathering. You can only use crafting scrips to purchase items for crafters and gathering scrips for gatherers. Then you have white scrips which are earned at level 80 and again split between gathering and crafting. Main way to earn them is by crafting/gathering collectibles which you can do after this quest. The collectible appraiser will have a list of what they want which changes every 24hrs and you craft or gather it as a collectible and turn it in for scrips. Next to the appraiser will be the scrip exchange npc who sells the equipment and items. At level 60 you can also do custom deliveries, which are great for both scrips and xp, but they're limited to 6 per npc and 12 per week, reset Tuesday. Rowena Tokens can be bought with scrips to be traded for level 60 gear. I'm not sure if that's a left over from an old system as there used to be blue and red scrips but they where removed. I hadn't seen those until now and just got my gear from the scrip exchange npc.
  12. A free login campaign has started, you get 8 days playtime and ends May 17th, your account needs to have been inactive for 30 days to be eligible.
  13. How the race was cancelled. It was left to the teams to decide if the race would go ahead. Ferrari had said they wouldn't be racing whatever was decided, Alfa Romeo and Renault voted no with McLaren being taken as a no. Mercedes, Red Bull, AlphaTauri and Racing Point voted to race with Williams and Haas saying they'd go with the majority. As it was a tie Ross Brawn was given the deciding vote and he said to go ahead with the race. Then Wolff got a phone call from his boss at Mercedes who didn't tell him what to do, but discussed his concerns with things getting worse in Europe. After which Wolff told Brawn they would now be voting against racing. As there where fewer than 12 cars now the sporting regulations allowed the FIA to cancel the event. The track promoters wanted to go ahead with the weekend still but then the Victorian government said no spectators would be allowed, so it was called off. So when Chase Carey said "I guess if cash was king, we wouldn't have made the decision we did today" in response to Hamilton, I wonder who the we his, because it looks like he had nothing to do with it.
  14. I've finally done it: I've not done much outside of crafting/gathering recently, partly because I wanted to get them finished, but largely I've been enjoying it, gathering is quite relaxing. All quests are finished which felt like a bit of a chore at times, gear is sorted and just need to get a few master recipe books. Now to get back to killing things.
  15. What the fuck is going on in Australia.
