Predatory Elvaan?

Miounne is the Story Quest Giver (At least so far for me) of the Tree City… gaze upon her visage and despair!

If you do not behave Miounne will come in the middle of the night and make you into a wilding!

… just look at those fine shark-like teeth!

To balance it out, a cute taru picture

Graphic Settings–Ambient Occlusion

Ambient Occlusion is when they layer shadow on objects to make them more realistic.  The result is quite dramatic, but I took a 10 frames per second hit in performance.

The game went from 60 frames per second to 50-ish frames when I turned on Ambient Occlusion and Depth of Field.

With Ambient Occlusion and Depth of Field On

The shadow on the body is no longer uniform and actually becomes a gradient.  The effect is very dramatic when viewed in game.  In general objects becomes more vivid and contrast become stronger.  I would suggest turning it on if your hardware can support it.

Found this Character Creation Guide

it seems complete

Character Creation Guide from Eorzeapedia

Though I been warned by Friend that your character’s skin tone might appear vastly different in game.  Maybe it is due to in-game lighting and/or graphic glitch.

New Blog for New Game

I have heard a lot about WordPress (a Blogging Software/Service) and decided to take the opportunity to give it a try – now that I am starting FF14.

The Old Blog I had on Live Journal still exists
