My original plan was to write a first impressions of patch 5.1, even if late, since I just got back to Final Fantasy XIV after about a month away from it.
But I barely touched the story much less anything else that came with the patch. With the Ishgard Restoration going on I will probably be spending my FFXIV time participating on it and who knows when I will be able to go back to anything else in the game.
So I decided it might be wiser instead to just write about it while the iron is still hot, so to speak. Specially since this experience is also providing me with some insight on the crafting and gathering changes that came with patch 5.1
