  About FFXIV

When and why did you start playing FFXIV?
I started playing FFXIV because originally my sister bought it herself and tested, but didn’t like it at all. So she asked that I test it a little. What I like about FFXIV, and even she didn’t wait, how much I like this game, as you see, I still play it. This happened just before we got Patch 3.4 (Soul Surrender)
What kind of player are you? (casual, hardcore, hardcore fat cat enthusiast maybe?)
I have heard a couple of times how I’m a casual player and it’s okay. I still try to learn so many things, but then again with gathering, I have heard opposite how I’m hardcore. I just love looking around areas, read cutscenes and enjoy playing.
What are your favorite jobs?
Well, I have liked many jobs in this game, but then favorite… This is kind of hard, but if I have to choose one of them then maybe red mage. At least I have loved how I can help other players in Eureka.
Do you enjoy crafting and gathering?
I have tried crafting and got them so far lvl 33, but I have not done it in a year. Need to continue someday again. But then again gathering…I mentioned earlier how someone has said to me how I’m hardcore in that area and it’s maybe because I have leveled max in 3 characters all gathering in ilvl 340. It’s in someway really relaxing and I enjoy it a lot… Maybe too much when I have thought to start all again in 4th character.
What is your favorite FFXIV boss?
This is hard. I normally have not any favorite bosses, but then again I have liked what Sophia, Suzaku and Ruby Princess (in Shisui of the Violet Tides) have looked.
Do you have a favorite duty? Why is it your favorite?
Shisui of the Violet Tides, because there get so cool gears..Okay, it’s not the only reason. In some ways like music and its an interesting place.
Who is your favourite NPC and why?
Well at first I think it was Haurchefant Greystone and because he sounds so friendly and all. I even named one of my chocobos after him.

  About FFXIV Screenshots

When and why did you join the FFXIV Snaps Community?
I was originally only in Eorzean Glamour Idols (EGI) and FFXIV Snaps was first to a part that. Then I heard that FFXIV Snap had done own discord server and saw the link. So I joined in.
When did you first feel inspired by taking screenshots?
Well, I didn’t even know at first that in the game you can take pictures. So I got myself all way lvl 50 before I heard about gpose. After that, I have tried taking pictures in-game, if not every day then every second day.
What is your favorite thing about taking screenshots?
Well, my favorite thing in screenshots is taking colorful pictures in a pretty place and if I don’t like to take pictures in a game, I don’t like that game either. So pictures and game are, to me, half and half literally.
What are your favorite places for screenshotting?
Costa del Sol.
Do you have any favorite screenshotters?
Edea, Wenarian and many many other too. Sadly I don’t see all the pictures and I like the ones that I do have time to see.

Your most memorable screenshot (tell us the story behind it!):

I think its this picture to me because this was the last picture of me as Miqo’te, bit over 2 years ago. I had little time already. I thought to change myself as Au Ra and I have not changed my character at all. Its still Au Ra!
