Beyond the Light Interview

What is your in-game character’s name?: Nox Brightflame

What race are you currently in-game?: Elezen

What drew you into your current choice of race?: I am exceedingly tall in real life and humans and the other races at the time did not have anything to represent very tall at the time of character creation , I like to in RPGs create characters that somewhat mirror me in real life.

When did you first start playing FFXIV?: April 2010

What drew you to pick up and play FFXIV?:

I saw it in the 20$ bin in a Walmart and thought maybe it’s as good as XI at the time

How far have you gotten into the MSQ (Main Story Questline) of FFXIV?: I’m caught up

What was your first (job? class? role?) when you started?: Lancer/Dragoon

What motivated you to pick that first (job? class? role?): When I first started playing my friends chose classes to complement our static startup group.

To date, what favorite jobs/roles/classes do you have?: Black Mage, Samurai, Gunbreaker and Red Mage

What kind of content do you enjoy?: MSQ, Crafting and/or Gathering, Duty Content, Side Quests, Glamour Collecting, Collectible Gathering

What would you say is your favorite content type from FFXIV? And why?: Crafting, I treat crafting like fishing in real life it’s relaxing helps me unwind on days that are bad or just not great personally and helps me feel like what I’m crafting or gathering might help another person or free company member who needs an item.

What is one thing you like about FFXIV that distinguishes them from other MMOs?:

The storytelling in the main story

If you could make at least 1 change to FFXIV based on personal preference, what would you pick and why?:

Probably re-add skip cutscenes in MSQ roulette

What is your most memorable/favorite moment in FFXIV?:

I’d say this would be back when Savage Coil first came out and our group managed to beat the Binding Coil of Bahamut Turn 2 and managed to get gear for everyone, our group at the time managed get everything and everyone went out of their way to help make everyone’s experience in the raid enjoyable, which was a rare experience for me given prior MMOs I’ve played.

When did you join Celestia?: June 2016

What drew you to join Celestia?: It was actually an individual from the free company recruiting, I had recently left my old free company and the individual was quite welcoming.

What do you like about Celestia as a Free Company?: The sense of community and involvement

What is your favorite weekly event to participate in with Celestia?: 24-Man Raiding and FC Festival Events
