Thank the gods

I’ve been sifting through the content in Final Fantasy 14: Shadowbringerslatest patch for the past day or so now, and I’ve found the most important new update: the Cheese Collection.

Square Enix added a furnishing item that is a shelf of cheese. A Twitter user pointed out the shelf and I immediately logged on to craft the shelf for myself. I gathered the wood, turned it into lumber, and got ready to make my dream shelf. I did not, however, make the cheese from scratch. It was cheap enough on the marketboard, so I bought it, except the person sold it in a stack of 97, so I’m pleased to also announce that I am now the owner of 93 extra bowls of cottage cheese.

If you also want a delightful shelf of cheese, you can make one, as long as you have a high leveled carpenter. It requires five Lignum Vitae Lumber, two White Oak Lumber, four bowls of Cottage Cheese, and four pieces of Cream Cheese. You can also totally buy one off the marketboard if you don’t feel like crafting.

The item’s description says the following:

Why in the gods’ name would a person amass such an amount of cheese? A peculiar obsession? A craving that transcends all reason? Some manner of cheese-related divination known only to a forbidden sect? Whatever the reason, one can only hope that the results are still saleable.

The answer is simple, Final Fantasy 14 tooltip: I want a huge amount of cheese because I will eat this huge amount of cheese. Oh, how I yearn for this shelf filled with cheese in real life. Look at the variety. Look at how much cheese that is. Do you have any idea how expensive a full wheel of cheese is?

Now my only problem is figuring out if I want to rip down my modernly decorated home just to flood it wall-to-wall with these cheese shelves ...
