Account Pruning

Folks, if you haven't logged into your account in 7 years on allakhazam, we are about to prune old unused accounts. If you want to save your account, then log in and that will save it from the pruning.

Site Migration

Tonight at 10pm PST we'll be bringing all allakhazam domain sites down for the migration to its new host. We plan to be back up by at least 3AM PST but may take longer. You can keep in touch with me on my twitter or in our discord channel to get updates/news on the whole process.

Site Migration

The site migration has been postponed until further notice. We'll let everyone know when we can set a date and time for this.

Site Migration

All allakhazam.com sites will be taken offline around 10pm PST on October 17th 18th to migrate over to the new host. If this schedule changes, I'll let everyone know. Downtime will be a few hours, I don't have a specific time when everything will come back up but you can follow me on twitter at https://twitter.com/gidono for updates or join our Discord channel at https://discord.gg/zu9tTS7 as well to get updates during the move.

Backend Authentication/Login Update

Please be aware that around 10:00 AM Pacific, on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, we'll be implementing a backend change to our authentication/login systems. Your session should be maintained after this update until you close the browser/tab.

When you next visit the site you will be asked to log in again. Your original authentication details will still work and be retained on our new system. If, in the future, you change your email or password you will now be required to log in again at that time.

If you should have any issues with your account as a result of this update, please reach out to me directly at [email protected] or via our support portal: http://help.zam.com

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Review

It’s been almost two years since I wrote my review of Square Enix’s MMO, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I was a big fan of what they’d created, especially compared to the mess that was v1.0. I even wrote a column about the game for over a year. Since that initial release, numerous patches came out, bringing with them new instances, Hard mode dungeons and Hard/Extreme trials, side-story quest chains like the Hildibrand saga, and of course the continuation of FFXIV’s excellent main story questline. Fast forward to a month ago when FFXIV releases their first expansion, Heavensward. This expansion brought with it an expanded level cap of 60, three new jobs, new zones, new instances/trials, and the continuation of that epic main story. For the last month I’ve been put in hours upon hours into the world of Eorzea and now I’m finally ready to give my opinion.
