I got my Nightborne Shadow Priest in on the Hallow’s End trick-or-treating. Seriously, holiday events like these are a great way to level your alts! Thought I’d pay homage to another fantasy game with her costume:
Here’s Sielle. Look familiar?
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance was one of my favourite games back in the day ^^ (official art by Square Enix)
I even have a mount to match! (it’s close enough. There aren’t any yellow Hawkstriders in WoW).
I get that the design choices around Red Magecraft are mostly about bringing a legacy FF archetype with an established aesthetic into XIV and fitting it into the existing worldbuilding in a fun way. I’m having a lot of fun with the class, and how it narratively works with a character who has an interest in arcane history and is maining BLM/WHM. X’rhun Tia is my favorite job mentor so far; he’s the only one who seems to have a handle on teaching as a discrete skill that deserves to be executed in a skillful, mindful, compassionate way.
That said, given that the art originated in/alongside Ala Mhigo in the wake of the Sixth Umbral calamity and your mentor is also an ethnic Ala Mhigan, I would love for the aesthetic flavor of the class to have been less turn-of-the-18th-century European swashbuckle-y and more, well, Ala Mhigan.
