Well, when I tried out FFXIV on Open Beta, I tried to look for other hair style that I like more than my old hair in FFXI. Why? Because the hair that I picked in FFXI turned out to be the most popular one. So, everywhere I go, I see my twins…. Guh! How uncool!
Well, as much as I love my Mithra’s hair, I decided to pick another hair style on FFXIV, since I like to be different – or I should say “I’d like to have fewer twins.”
But, I still can’t part with this hair style just yet. So, one last time, I’ll make a Mi’qote with that hair. Good thing is that there are many more colours to pick from, as well as highlight. These will allow players to be more unique with their character creations.
So, I played around with FFXIV character creation and got this…
Woot! OMG, much prettier than FFXI graphic. More details, and more face expressions, I mean. Too bad I couldn’t find the face pattern that match the old face in FFXI. But these stripes look similar to the old ones.
Had I been allowed to pick my own colour for Mithra’s hair, I’m damn sure I would have picked this colour. Grey with a hint of purple.
Purple, purple, purple! I love this pale purple.
I didn’t have enough time to mess around with this character, because Open Beta server was closing down. I was sick, and had work to finish. I also had to go out with grandma for a lunch one day, then dinner another day. So, by the time I came back on Sunday night, the server was already closed. No chance to play around with cute /emote in FFXIV with this model ; ; Therefore, these screenshots were mostly taken from cutscenes or just standing in the game. This is cute, nevertheless.
I personally think Gridania’s beginning cutscene was the most hilarious. LOL. The slow-motion moment really cracked me up badly.
There will be no monk anymore. Hand-to-hand fighter is called Pugilist in FFXIV. And of course I pick Pugilist.
My bro was freaking out about more realistic facial expressions in FFXIV, and at first I was like “piff, why get so excited? It wouldn’t be too different from FFXI?” But then after I saw it with my own eyes, I realized it’s a BIG improvement in graphic. A lot more details, and movements.
In FFXI, I’ve always wished we could really sit on chair or bench. Now, in FFXIV, my dream came true. When we walk near a bench or chair that was designed for sitting, we can react with it with “sit” command and actually sit down!
I don’t think I or anyone would see Aleczan with the same face as Aleczan the mithra from FFXI Sylph in FFXIV. I’ll definitely pick other hair. But boy, I’ll be missing this face so much!!Aleczan, Character Creation, FFXI, FFXIV, Mi'qote, Mithra
