final fantasy xv boys and their crazy hair, except Cor who’s a badass and don’t got no time fo’ dat

…in the end i really just wanted to paint their cute faces.  looking forward to FFXV:Boyband Roadtrip! ヾ(´▽`;)ゝ




GM arrived at Pandemonium today to give out cake buffs and a code. I don’t know what they did this year but it was hilarious that people as low as level 2x could resist the buffs.




Japan is getting the Invasion update (4.7) on 15 October 2014, NA usually isn’t too far away whenever Japan updates. So this is a good gauge that NA could possibly get 4.7 before the end of 2014 (and the recent 5th anniversary trailer with 4.7 sneaks was another good sign).

Here’s a food for thought though, Japan recently did a server merge in August and they now only have two servers (previously five). This could dispel the rumours that you needed at least four servers in order for the Pangaea siege to function.

I rounded up the number of the servers each region had:

Korea - 32

Japan - 2

Taiwan - 4

China - 75 (not even kidding here)

EU - 12

NA - 4

Just plain speculating; but as you can see, NA may not see the need to do server merges at all. Taiwan is still at 4.5 and China recently got 4.7.

I have no info on RU unless somebody can provide that.




Oh look, I made some LoL doodles.

I really liked Graves’s “End of the Line" shell from New Dawn.

I usually don’t reblog girls but I’ll make this an exception.

(dat hair though :K)

Made for an elyos friend who disdained clothes to be unnecessary. If you play on Tiamat, you’re probably in luck.

(P.S - if “you’re" reading this, I really don’t like your cloud hair)

I only recently reached 500 followers today, and while I do not usually put much weight on how many followers i gain/lose/whatever I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all who have shown interest in my work and (often inconsistent) blogging.

(I’d throw in a long emotional thank you message that would go on for a few more sentences but as always too awkward and no idea how to write stuff ; ; sorry, thank you to all followers who stayed to read this post!)

I guess this is a good chance to do an art giveaway, considering I haven’t done any giveaways since this blog was made :)

✦ Rules 

  • You do not have to be following me.
  • All notes count as entries(likes, reblogs, comments) - try not to spam your dashboard too much though!
  • You may reblog as many times as you like.

There will be 3 winners(random selection), who will all receive the same prize : a fanart or screenshot edit of a character of your choice.

All fandoms are welcome, though some games I may not be able to edit screenshots of due to the difference in graphics.

I do not draw furries, or themes that convey hateful/controversial messages. NSFW/guro is ok(it will be posted on my nsfw sideblog)

✦ The giveaway ends at September 30th, and winners will be announced the next day.

That’s about it, go crazy! 8D ❤❤

Spreading the word, going crazy!




I’m usually not that hyped up about female toons but, she really makes me melt. I’m still trying to get the more extravagant version of her hanbok.

What’s the deal with forgetting there are two factions in this game?
It’s said that “we take race balance seriously” and yet we run into the same theme time and time again where you can barely tell there is a second race due to the lack an advertised asmo on display and all the new skins “conceal your asmo fur!”
New players are quietly being led to roll elyos, because the players who might come and play an asmo don’t get to see many attractive representations of the race.  This contributes to the insane imbalance you find on most of the servers.
Additionally, BCM items are usually modeled by a default (uninteresting) asmo model (purple skin, red hair?  we all know those are not pleasing colors - we took art class!)
Talk to your Asmos players.  There are AMAZING Asmo character designs everywhere you look if you wander around Panda/Endgame resting areas.
Please stop hiding your asmos.  When you DO use one, don’t hide their fur and eyes.  Don’t use an offputting model.  Stop acting like the race characteristics like mane are something to be “hidden” - You are alienating a percentage of your player base and preventing future players from helping balance be achieved on the servers.
I am not a conspiracy theorist and I LOVE Aion, but the Powers That Be need to start doing right by the Asmo side of their player base, be it current asmos or FUTURE asmo players.

You can’t really blame NA (for everything); if anything, most of the official and concept art rarely depict asmodians. Even the most recent 4.7 official concept art doesn’t depict asmodians at all.
Possibly, from an illustrator’s point of view, working with “human skin colours" is easier than the pale, gray tones of the asmodians. And yeah you do bring up a valid point about mane hiding, most of the recent skins will more than often hide your mane. The shoes you wear no longer give hint that you have claws for feet. And your asmodian claws have been severely toned down; if not, once again disguised as fashion claws (there are a couple of costumes that show both elyos and asmodians having claws).
I can tell you Japan is one of the regions that is pretty supportive of asmodian advertising, but as I have reiterated, the lack of official asmodian art makes this hard. Luckily, they have a creative department that churns out their own asmodian fanart (like the famous Kromede picture made for one of their recent anniversaries).
All in all, there are no other pictures NA can use at the moment unless they can “afford" a creative department.

Beritra’s Invasion - Spawn Locations / Types

We have some good Korean folks who painstakingly drafted this information after 3 months of stakeout for the benefit of many. Before I continue, if you are still clueless to this particular 4.7 content, you may want to read up a bit more here.

Take note that the locations mapped are only for the two new zones ( 칼도르 / 게르하), Lower / Upper Abyss, Katalam and Danaria. The rewards for the other zones aren’t really worth it; also, the mentioned zones are the only ones that give mythic tier reward bundles*.

the range of rewards from it are to die for - the main jackpot are the new skins (weapons or armour), or chance to get a random mythic equipment box from Danaur Reliquary, Illuminary Obelisk or Infinity Shard

So basically, they have accurately listed the type of boss that will spawn as well as the targeted locations. While the Korean power wiki has stated that the invasion period is between 6pm - 10pm, the players themselves have successfully narrowed it down to the specified timing of between 7pm - 8.30 pm.

Beritra’s Invasion apparently follows a religious cycle (take note the whole event is a month long basis). On a per day basis within the month, the cycle of locations will proceed as follows:

- 게르하 -> 칼도르 -> Danaria -> 게르하 -> 칼도르 -> Katalam

The following days within the month are designated to take place in the Abyss:

- 3, 5, 7, 11, 15, 17, 19, 23, 27

The whole cycle concludes after the 28th day. 

Please also do take note that information may be subjected to change when it comes to NA, but at least this saves us a lot of hassle from guessing. The point of this is to be prepared and get to the target location as fast as possible (you can also park SMs there to summon yourself / friends).

This is a DPS / time race, and you are also rewarded based on the DPS rank you achieve should everyone successfully down the boss (eg. while the mythic tier reward bundle is the only reward, anyone with lackluster DPS will not get anything, pretty much like sieging). The basic reward from participating in this is GP.

This has been happening a lot lately.




Character Profile - [ x ]

A second +20 weapon has been achieved in Korea, belonging to a Gladiator. The skill that she got on a weapon allows her to inflict damage on a target up to a max range of 25m away, stunning them for 0.5 seconds.

Stats on the glad as follows - 1086 Attack / 2952 Accuracy / 951 Physical Crit (this is based on the first screenshot, with candy and food buffs).

Stats on his profile shows - 863 Attack / 3080 Accuracy / 1098 Physical Crit.

Daeva’s Day - NA

NA is finally getting the 5th Anniversary / Daeva’s Day events although to what extent of Korea’s we’re getting, I have no idea. What we can definitely expect though is that we’re getting the Daeva’s Day armour set.
To see what Korea got during their Daeva’s Day event, refer to the links here.
