I'll be honest, I think it's @#%^ing gorgeous. I used to only use the www.Allakhazam.com skin because I felt that was the most elegant, but I quickly changed to this one once I saw it.
It is just so.....
It feels surreal, like we really are gearing up for a rapture to a totally new place.
____________________________On the topic of Black Mage in XIV:
They summon fireballs and fart lightning. From their eyes.
Even thinking about them makes enemies explode.
Having one in your PT is like a free ticket to defeat Absolute Virtue.
That's the reason why only one of them is allowed in PvP. Per server.
Imagine a cross-breed between Allakhazam and Sun Zu. That's a Black Mages's toenail.
