Hello everyone! I'm not very good at writing any kind of introduction, but I'll try my best.
So I'm a 25 years old male graduate student who is currently pursuing Ph.D in Computer Engineering! So nothing interesting goes on in my life except a lot of paper writing and caffeine consumption
I have been playing FFXIV since 2.1 due to my friend's recommendation (he has quit since 3.2 and went back to FFXI) and honestly I'm quite surprised at myself it's already been that long since I have started this game.
I originally started as WAR because I love lalas and figured as a WAR, I would wield a big axe which is three times larger than my size, but shortly after disappointed in the fact that wasn't the case so I switched to DRG because I loved the fact tiny lala jumping around everywhere and tanking the floor! So as a DRG, I started doing coil as mid-highcore from T1 all the way up to T13 and was pretty much addicted to FFXIV until the release of 3.0. Then I originally raided in Alexander, but life became more time consuming (finishing up Master's degree) and I was very not big fan of early Alexander raid in comparison to coil, so I basically stopped raiding there (and intend to keep this way for now!). After quitting raiding, I switched my job to AST as I wanted to feel the hardship healers have to go through and after maxing that, I had to temporarily leave FFXIV again due to moving process from one university to the other. Now two weeks ago I'm more settled down and I decided to try tanking again as DRK. So currently just leveling up DRK (52 at this moment) and having pretty good fun!
I'll be honest that I'm not too sure myself of what I am looking for in FFXIV anymore since I don't raid and pretty much play casually. I just miss that feeling of when I first started the game where everyone just had a lot of fun together instead of trying to race and outdo each other if that makes sense. Maybe I'm being little bit unrealistic haha
Therefore that's my little bit of FFXIV history if I can call it that way.. but here are some other facts about myself!
I'm Korean and moved to states when I was young, so I'm alright at both English and Korean, but proficient at neither of them
Tennis is my huge hobby ever since I moved to PA since there's literally nothing to do here.
Other games I play at times are:
Dragon Quest Builders (I'm not good at it, but having some fun)
I'm usually up for any games that can be played with friends.
Huge baseball fan of Dodgers, and yes I'm little bit sad while typing this
Anyhow, I'm currently in Faerie so I'll have to transfer to Levi, but I certainly don't mind doing that
All in all, this post became little bit longer than I originally intended... so I apologize for that. Thanks for informing me about this FC and if there is anything that you may be curious about, please let me know and I'll try my best to answer it, good night!
