Hello, welcome to my user page.
I'm Spira, or Arciel, or Arciel Spira. I also go by my real name Clarence.
The name Arciel Spira is the name I use for online entries in the FF series.
I am an avid fan of Final Fantasy, though I tend to prefer the main series lineage, meaning I like and play FFs that are numbered (1-14) as well as their spin-offs (X-2, CoFF7). I also play Dissidia. I do not have much of any experience with Tactics, Crystal Chronicles, Theatrhythm or other spin-off series.
I am a well-known name in the FFXI community on both the western and Japanese fronts as a data-miner for Final Fantasy XI. My predominant focus is on uncovering new graphical assets, such as weapon models, new monsters and also animations. My data mining of new zones in FFXI also led to a viral leak of Seekers of Adoulin before it was actually announced. I am also well known for creating graphical resources for use with FFXI. All this can be found on my blog.
I don't do as much data-mining in FFXIV, if any. I did leak the (1.0) alpha original soundtrack tho, and continue to follow FFXIV music as it releases.
I quite like making FF-related videos, so I have some FF final boss battles and several bestiary videos in my youtube account. I am currently backlogged as a I have yet to record for FF4CC.
I have played and completed all main series FFs multiple times, and have done Perfect Game runs of almost all of them.
I have been playing FFXI for well over 9 years now. I can be found on Ragnarok server as Spira and was once Arciel of Ramuh (and then Bahamut) when I worldshifted there. My main job is the Summoner (SMN), and I am a huge supporter of pet-based jobs. However, due to an inability to commit time to gearing my other jobs, I have now settled on SMN, SCH and BST for end-game events. When Seekers of Adoulin releases, I will also be pursuing Rune Fencer.
I played a bit of FFXIV when it first launched, and on and off as new patches were implemented. I was know there as Arciel Spira on the Gysahl, and subsequently Durandal servers.
My favorite FFs are FFVIII, FFXI and FFXIII-2 respectively.
i'm currently hoping to work on FFXI content, since much of it is very lacking here. Although there IS an FFXI dedicated wiki, this wiki encompasses all FF games and should at least have the 'minimum' info regarding this game as well. Also because the other XI wiki is strategy and detail based, this one could probably start off and work itself up from a traditional FF point of view.
