As our collective staycations go on we’ve seen many new players and people coming back to the game after a long break so we decided to take time time to share our “do”s and “do not do”s for all of you new and returning players. Somehow we managed to be pretty nice about the whole thing, and conjure up a bevy of helpful tips if you’re feeling nervous about diving back in. We sandwiched this rare bit of helpful information between two salty slices of bread as Poptart gets very upset about that one time she had a bad experience in a group and … then also gets grumpy about the new Moogle tomestone rewards. She may be mad, but we think you’ll be glad to hear our latest episode!


Christina Zammarrelli

Gaming has been a core part throughout Poptarts life. Though her specialty is JRPGs, she tries to branch out and try new things. Most of her time gets put into the MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV, but she still finds time to play new games.

Chip Locke

Chip has a boring adult day job and then burns as much free time as possible playing the videos james. Fond of a variety of MMOs, JRPGs, and action games without active time button mashing.

Kristen Allison

Began the gaming life with a game boy to be kept entertained during a vacation in the early 90s and forgot to put it down after that. Currently, most gaming time goes into FFXIV. Doing her best to prove she's not a robot.

Deanna Huber

Playing all kinds of games since she was a kid, Deanna is a big fan of many different genres of games. But the main focus has been FFXIV since May 2018. She occasionally strays to FPS or RPGs whenever one catches her attention.
