Follow me around and be cute! - Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Posted on at

Do you like pets? yes, I do. Both in real life and virtual world. 

I have been playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for a few months now and there are some things I like about the game, besides the fancy dresses, beautiful girls and boys, one feature I like the most is “pets” and they are called “Minions” in the game. Sometimes it might be complicated to have pets in real life, but owning virtual pets in a virtual world is easy. Both have advantages and disadvantages. I am not saying that I prefer having a virtual pet. As it is not suitable for me to have pets in real life… so what about virtual pets? :) There are many pets in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, such as kitties, dogs, spiders, robots, vampires, bombs, airships, mushrooms, onions, rats, boxes, queens, kings, knights, pudding, bunnies, bricks, cactus…(I think I listed enough of them! :) and even a magic broom! A "Magic Broom"! I wish I could have one in real life! and of course the famous “chocobo” in all the series of Final Fantasy. Some of them are very CUTE! They follow you around but do not have any gameplay functions, just for fun and cuteness :)

The basic thing to know is how to summon it. You can summon pets through the Minions Guide tab in the Character menu. But you can only summon 1 pet at a time…that’s too bad! otherwise I would have all my pets following me around all the time ;)

These are all the minions that can be collected currently:


These are recently added minions in patch 2.3:

I have been collecting them and I have 24 pets now! I am going to show them to you in my upcoming blogs :)
