I started Stormblood. I stopped playing the main story quest at The Fringe in Gyr Albania, in order to level up pugilist in Palace of the Dead. I'm bringing that to monk 60, then that'll be my new main for the rest of Stormblood, although I may switch to red mage and/or samurai, depending on how I like those classes. My ultimate goal is to have all combat classes to level 70, but for now, I'm going to settle for level 60, since Palace of the Dead level grinding is good for up to level 60. I'm going to grind floors 51-100 over and over. I have the Ala Mhigan earrings equipped, which give me a 30% XP increase, and with my FC's XP increase enabled and XP food, that would give me a total 43% XP increase. Pretty sweet.
It didn't occur to me that the leader of the resistance was Illberd, but that would make sense, as he seemed to have gotten away when he was fighting Rauzbahn at the end of ARR. I like how Yd- Lyse looks with her mask off.
