So I finally finished another step in the relic quest, only to realize that I have traded one annoying hell for...another annoying hell. At least my staff is really, really pretty now, if...extremely glowy.
On the other hand, at least it's not Gerolt being an obstructionist jerk this time, which is refreshing, even if I still want to throw him into a barrel.
...also yes, I am in fact wearing my bard outfit while holding the Stardust Rod in the second screencap. I was too lazy to go get my spare BLM staff so I could unequip the relic, so I just...switched to bard. Still worked. #FFXIV
