I was sitting on 500k MGP from just doing the daily mini cactpot and the weekly triple triad and minigame ones. Now i just have 4 levels left on PLD to cap everything and just have eureka to do as i only finished Anemos recently doing the challenges and never bothered with the relic -and i had a ton of relics in each previous 2.x/3.x version of the game.

The odd thing though? i don't think i've tome capped once with Mendacity. I can't even tell you my gearscore. Thats such a strange feeling whereas in WoW gear was literally everything but after getting my Omega weapon and slowly picking up the tomes for the last tier of gear which i then upgraded i haven't felt any need to chase Orbonne or Mendacity gear. I probably will when i finished levelling PLD and dont need roullettes for levelling XP anymore but its so strange to be in an mmorpg and go "i dont know what gear i've got because it doesnt matter".

Anyone here tank and notice the healer leaves when the pulls are big? When I run dailies on older content or over 50 content, I generally pull big or pull to the wall. The exception I make is if someone asks or I'm in a group of new players. I have a WHM at cap so I know how to heal if placed in the same situation. Its not hard to do and its a snorefest unless you do it. Some of this content is 3 years old and most of the gear coming in is adjusted to the top threshold. Usually if I see a healer struggling, I back the aggression down, but they usually don't let you get to that point. They just fail and bail.

What typically happens is they struggle to keep my health up and I ko. Then the group wipes and the healer just quits. I never used to see this happen. Now I see it happen all the time. Usually the just quit in silence, but every once in a while you get a whiny comment and then a quit. One run, we never received replenishment, and we finished as a three man with a RDM gap healing.

>don’t tank enough, healers bitches at you for wasting time

>tank too much another healer bitches at you because he wants to dps instead of heal.

be a paladin, they have no excuse when you're forced to heal yourself just tell them they suck and if they don’t wanna heal they should switch to dps.

>I have a WHM at cap so I know how to heal if placed in the same situation.

roll a DD next so you know depending how low you're scaled pulling big means fuck all. I had a tank insisting to pull half the instance with 2 ACN in sastasha - a class that gets it's first aoe skill on lvl30 (while at the same time missing that one of them was still running with the fucking topaz carbuncle)

what happens is tanks pulls big, heal spams shit keeping the tank alive (and runs out of mp) instead of contributing some damage while DDs plink away at single mobs, usually not even the same one. there is literally zero gain pulling big in that range.

it makes more sense to simply chainpull so the healer can throw a heal every once in a while and DDs get less confused which mob to burn down.

another favourite is tank running off immediately as fast as he can ofc around all corners, completely forgetting that heal still needs line of sight and needs to be in range then gets pissy dying to the second group (if not outright leaving because MUH NOOBS)

Sadly the game has gone to shit. The patch notes from 4.5 read like patch notes from 2.2. They refuse to change anything and the few attempts at trying something new are always poorly executed.

Not that I can recall. The most progressive the plot and characters get is "diversity is our strength" in regards to the different city-states working together despite their differences and is not necessarily a racial thing. Particularly since all races are already pretty widespread; for the most part.

The only character one could construe as being a tranny is Omega since, in its desperation to be perfect, it makes itself an OC player avatar for both genders in an attempt to understand how you're so powerful. However this is no more transgender than the T-1000 swapping appearances is. The focus in particular is on the machine trying to understand how humans can be so strong so it can return home, but upon defeat the cast explains how it would be very difficult for a human to make such a long, lonely journey.

So if you're a particularly mentally ill tranny you could ignore all that and insist Omega represents trans rights, but that would be the only character to do so. There isn't even a token trap or anything.

No, I think it's simply that you can make an effeminate male avatar as well as the tit sliders and jiggle physics not being that great.

What's the armour/clothing like? BDO had almost no difference in Armours apart from a colour change, and all the nice clothing was behind microtransactions.

Please don't lie to the man about crafting, it's an absurd grind for next to no payoff. The horrific RNG involved certainly doesn't help either. Not to mention it's basically time/paygated with how you spam leves to level it.

36f326  No.16405668


it's a cool system. seemingly unique from any crafting system i've encountered in other games. I just wish it didnt take a gorillion years to level, though I suspect that's why it has such good money. high barrier to entry keeps it lucrative.

be592c  No.16405696


crafting is easily a money sink if you dont have gatherers and all crafters levelled up and are buying mats from the MB. You're better off networking with people like fc mates to get mats, raw and secondairy until you have all crafters levelled. You should have all of them levelled to at least 50, they give you so many great and useful skills that you can compensate unoptimal gear for. Its a bit of a slog tho, but its not a bad idea to level a combat class who uses your gear on the side, giving yourself a purpose.

I'm on Famfrit where one of our mainstays is the Jade Corle group. They all share the same name but with numbers to seperate them. While there is a wall of them in Limsa you can also find one of two sitting next to the aetherytes in the other city-states; except Ishgard. They are always logged in. Always.

I suggest to an old FC I was in that it is run by one autistic guy with several subscriptions. They all screeched about me making an "ablist" remark and to take it back or leave. So I left. I wasn't even joking. I 100% think that Jade is significantly on the spectrum.

So I'm doing pretty well in the feast. Made it to gold with a 76.65 win record. For the love of good though people that abuse the chat commands annoy me. Especially DPS who have no idea what they are doing but think they are the star of the team. They will hit call for an attack on whatever is their focus and then the moment they realize they can't immediately hit through the healers heals switch to a new target and call for attack again. The worst is melee DPS when the counter hasn't ever reached zero but the target moved out of reach so they hit it again for whatever is closest to them. This last match this little potato faggot would change targets every two seconds while the opposing team was focusing us down one by one. Then the moment he dies because the healer went down and the enemy focused on his he starts spamming chat with

>Good Job!

>Good Job!

>Good Job!

>Good Job!

>Good Job!

over and over again and decides to sit down in the spawn area and pout.

I thought this shit only happened on my server. Then again I've never played anywhere else and don't really talk to anyone about this game. I'm on Balmeme and I quit just before HW released. Theres a guy, one of many, who would dance by the Atheryte in Limsa and be logged in all day, every day. When I resubbed for 4.4, there he is, except now he's doing the sundrop dance and wearing an enormous moogle head. He may as well be an NPC at this point. I don't understand people.

Currently they mostly play shitty MMOs and gachashit while the nonfaggots yell at them to play real games. It's also funny how they've become a fucking bogeyman on this board when it was just a group of faggots - no more or less faggy than the already existing FFXIV groups I might add - that wanted to play another MMO after the one that united them died. They now play shit games. You still play this shit game.

It is "support" in that its peers are Bard and Machinist which are DPS, but have valuable support abilities; Bard much more so. If you're asking why it isn't a healer then you're in the same camp as many others.

I have been finding myself defaulting to AST more and more often when trying to pick a job to play for raids and roulette. I still like my main, but the utility, adaptability, and stimulating nature of AST has been appealing to me more and more as of late. The only downside is that the heals feel lower potency than WHM. This is especially noticeable when 50/60 or leveling roulette puts me in a team of low level shitters and I am struggling to spam heals and keep the team alive until my mana runs out and the tank spams chat like a child because he and the melee DPS insisted on standing in the poison and refusing to move for AoE templates while in Aurum Vale.

WHM needs some work for next expansion. It is good to learn healing if it is you first time, but the healing potency doesn't compensate that his gameplay is duller than the other classes, the lilies are kind of shit that really doesn't do anything nor alters how you play, and it lacks serious utility. I used to be WHM, but AST and specially SCH are so much fun to play for me. AST forces you to take snap decision with the cards all while offering quite powerful healing tools and the nicest visuals of the 3 healers, and SCH can practically do anything, it just has an skill for any situation. I'll say though, the WHM for dungeons is just great thanks to Holy and being to Stun the enemies, it basically gives you a Hallowed Ground per pull.

I don't like SCH for the same reason I didn't like SUM. Micromanaging a pet is cumbersome and distracting and any potential gains to be had from flexibility and utility are lost due to focus spent on the pet instead of the overall situation. If you are rerunning content for the millionth time maybe it could be the most effective solution but it's just not for me. Once you played with the cards enough to know what they are, what they do, and how they can be used it become second nature and your full focus is on the fight. You pull a card and you instinctively know whether to spread it, road it, minor it, or immediately play it. No matter what you pull there is a use for a card right then and you are contributing to your parties success with more than just healing.

Holy is fucking great and the lack of stun and smaller AoE on Gravity are comparatively major demerits. Factoring in Celestial Opposition(despite it's two minute cd) and Earthly Star AST would more than makes up for where it not for WHM's Assize. Being able to blast of a couple Holy's and then hit Assize to completely recover the lost mana in addition to healing the players you neglected while playing green DPS gives WHM a much more offensively oriented playstyle to compared to AST.

Plenary Indulgence is quite possibly the worst 70 job skill. The potency is barely greater than Assize and is entirely dependent upon a short lived stack that requires consistently spamming high cost AoE heals. All that is on top of a 33% longer CD time of Assize and without the AoE damage or MP recovery.

>Summoner doesn't need pet managing at all, literally all it is now is garuda on sic

Pretty much this. Unless you are optimizing your DPS to reach top damage for the most part you ignore your pet and do your own thing while telling them to use their attacks once in a while. SCH has the same problem, where the fairy is just a healing turret that you use once in a while to give a nifty Regen effect to the party. Hell you have literally a skill to make the fairy disappear in exchange for increase personal healing and aetherflow stacks. While I think the SCH is ok gameplay wise, as the concept of the job as an strategist is reflected in being the healer with more answers to any situation but usually having to manage resources, being forced to chose the best answer among a great number, which can induce a bit of hesitation which can be fatal and being more focused in shielding means knowing the fight is more important that with the other healers A shame the fairy feels like an after thought but the job is fun and it works.

The SUM though? I like the class, a lot, but it just doesn't feel like a summoner. Aside from the decision of giving you "Egi" versions of the primals, which suck, and FFXIV team's declaration that we cannot summon more than Garuda Ifrit and Titan, while explaining it lore wise, and making Bahamut work more like a "super-mode" turret that just shoot when we use skill, the pets have even less use than the fairies at time. Instead of going all the way and making the class skill all about giving orders to the pet, spell to support it and give their attacks different effects, and giving a reason to summon different primals through the fight, SQ just feel like they don't know what the fuck they want to do with SUM. It was a DoT class, now is a Burst dps class. I don't know how much being part of the arcanist class fucked it up design wise, but I would level it from level 1 again if it meant to have a real summoner instead of what we have now.

Also what are your prediction for the jobs in Shadowbringers? I bet the removal of TP will homogenize the tanks even more, and that DRK will lose its identity as the MP tank.

To your point about MP and TP being merged, that isn’t necessarily a monumental task from an engineering standpoint, but we have to be extremely careful with how it will affect job balance. Even so, the party window still needs an overhaul, and the UI team is giving it their all to make sure everything comes together nicely.

It's not clear that they actually are removing TP in an effective sense, or if they're simply going to just smash it into MP and have it act pretty much the same. This lets them streamline stuff like goad, tactician/refresh, mana shift, etc. into a single set of skills affecting all party members equally. It may be that, for example, PLD plays pretty much the same except AoE spam drains your mana.

I wouldn't mind though even if it did become "just free", since it's not like AoE spam is a particularly compelling gameplay mechanic anyways. The biggest impact the TP system has is discouraging shitty players from AoEing (since they'll run out of TP) while punishing the good players that won't receive tactician/goad from the bad ones.

TP management hasn't been relevant as a system since midtier Heavensward, and if it'll make the shitty samurais I get in expert actually use AoEs instead of plugging away individual combos I won't complain.

On topic though, MCH will be conceptually better but functionally shit. SCH will get nerfed, and then buffed, again. Nobody will know what's going on with WHM until 5.3. DRK will be functional but in a way completely different from how its been in stormblood, pissing everybody off.

I am getting pretty god damned sick of healers, who player search usually don't have much experience in healing let alone tanking, deciding they are going to tell the tank where they need to tank and Rescue them to a specific spot. Do they even think that maybe the tank is positioning the mob to aim templates away from the party and provide themselves with the room needed to move around? Do they think that where ever they dropped their Sacred Soil or Asylum may not be the best place to for the tank to be? Evidently not because doing my roulettes today they keep dropping their bubbles where ever they feel like and dragging me right into the middle of it. Which, as luck would have it, is usually in the middle of the party and aiming all the enemies right towards everyone else.

I don't know why this shit suddenly started happening in every party I joined today. Maybe some reddit made a video on "how to play healer." I don't know and I don't care. Next time, and from every time onward, the moment they do that I am going build as much agro as I can and shirk it onto them. If you want to decide how the tank is going to play than you can have all the responsibility that goes with it.

I feel since the division of worlds and the data centre and all of that DF parties have become worse. I haven't find much problem in dungeons, but yesterday I was in a awful run in Osbornne that just keep wiping. Our DPS was abysmal, most folk didn't do mechanics and at one point there was a vote dismiss, in a fucking 24-man raid. We end up winning after Party B just straight up left and new players filled the gaps, and still it went slow as shit and we wiped once in T.G.C.

There is the usual party finder fuckery sure, but this Rescue shit almost never happened before and when it did I could brush it off as a new heal who hasn't quite got the ropes yet and doesn't know when it is actually needed. But today it is literally every single dungeon I have tanked for. I straight out left two dungeons in a row between pulls after asking the healers to not pull me and getting told that I don't pay for their subscription so who the fuck am I to tell them how to play their class and they were going to report me for my toxic playstyle. Let me reiterate I asked, and did not tell. I used no profanity or made any insulting comment I simply said,

>please don't pull me you are screwing up my tanking

and got these rabid reactions. The second one tried to immediately run to the next mob and agro it after I said I was leaving. I assume they were going to try and trap me in the instance so that I would be forced to tank or face a disruptive gameplay ToS violation. I got out in time.

This shit is really pissing me off since I finally got the Gloria mount from Feast I decided to focus on getting the tank mounts.


Avoid Exodus like the plague. It is an absolute shithole. JP servers are the promised land from what I gather. If you don't have property tying you down I would give it a try. I just know that when I comment on pics or blogs from the JP players on Lodestone their responses are usually really polite, friendly, and enthusiastic in their genuine enjoyment of the game.

at the start of each raid tier, there's a massive demand for crafted sets because they're 20(?) ilvls over the BIS of the old tier, so they're a large boost in gear for people pushing for early clears.

aside from gear, there's consumables like potions and food that are mandatory for any remotely serious raiding, and glamour items, and furniture, etc.

disciples of land fuel the crafters and can make good money on their own at the start of expansions or new raid tiers by supplying the brand new materials for the new crafted sets.

I met this qt Auri slut while I was tanking, and she chatted me up for a while. Took me back to her place and became an insatiable cockwhore. All she wants to do is screw and buy me things, she's lonely as fuck and it shows, but the head is great and she has a cute little cock and it feels kinda comfy to tank for her and protect her and decorate her place together.

And yet he still is. He is the kind of boss that just works well with videogames, particularly those where you can upgrade or level up your character in some form or way. He pushes your shit, you get stronger, you come back and beat him. He was menacing, his personality archtype wasn't anything new but well done, the kind of warrior obsessed with battle that respect you and sees you as friend in a very twisted way, and even a bit of a reflection, as your own character desire (and the player) is to get stronger, but while Xenos does just because he sees it as the pinnacle of what being alive means, you do it to protect what you love. Besides, the bar wasn't very high to begin with.


Nothing was better than him, but there were good parts. The Doman side of the story in general was rushed, but enjoyable, with the Azim Steppe being probably the highlight, followed by a nice little climax in Doma Castle. Hien, Yugiri and Gosetsu were quite likeable. It wasn't spectacular, mind you, but was ok considering how shit the Ala Mighan side was. I swear I just wanted to join the fucking empire at that point. Also the deeper insight in the empire situation was nice, I want more of that. But for the most part, yes, a great step down from Heavensward, and that one has its own problems, but in general was pretty good.

> the fuck boy from another reality

I think that guy is supposed to be the Cat Boy that helps you and N.O.A.H in the ARR 24 man raids, the crystal tower. At least the shape of his face looked like a Male Mi'qote face.



Fuck do I hate that stupid bitch. Worst goddamn character so far in my opinion. From moment one she is just "can't believe that after being oppressed and kicked down by the empire you won't take up arms just because you are afraid of losing you loved ones, you fucking traitor". Bitch, you ran and hide and lived happily far away from all that shit and then comes back all like "I'm a true and proud woman of Ala Migho". Fucking piece of shit. There is not a single point in the story where I believed she got what it takes to become a leader. She is retarded, violent, has no charisma and she isn't even that heroic. For fuck sake, what the fuck does she even know about her own nation and its people? Raubhan was better leader. It is even worse, because Estinien, Iceheart and Alphinaud were the companions of Heavensward, and all of them went to different character arcs, some beginning since the beginning of ARR, all of them were very likeable and, despite being powerful, the game didn't feel the need to fellate them like Lyse.

But you know what is the absolutely worst part about Lyse? They killed Yda for her. And I'm not talking about "muh dead sister that I impersonated" shenanigans, I mean the character Yda in ARR. There is no fucking well in hell they planned all of this shit from the beginning. They decided it wasn't the real Yda. So we lost a character that was funny, likeable, was part of a great duo with Papalymo and still had many memorable moments through the Main Story line in place for this absolute bitch. She died at the end of 2.5 and what we got was Lyse. At least she will remain in Ala Mhigo with all those pieces of shit and won't be around the Scions any longer.

Lyse was easily the worst part of SB. That character had an absolute shit arc and whats worse is that arc was central to the story. The other pile of shit was Zeno killing himself. He was better served fighting until the last drop of blood poured out of him. Though what I can tell, actual Zenos is back in some type of capacity in the next exp. Also Gotetsu should have died with that woman under the rubble. That whole amnesia arc was a contrived pile of shit. He had a gar exit and it was totally ruined.

Too good to be true. Trick Attack is good, but is sad that Ninja is only a Trick Attack machine, I would like if SE actually give them more utility and make it more fun to play. Dark Arts dissapearing would have been interesting, and it would mean that DRK would actually receive an extensive rework at a base level. Aetherflow is actually quite interesting, it would either mean that SCH and SUM will be changed radically (which is not going to happen, despite how much I want SUM to be changed to a more proper Summoner instead of the weird Arcanist/Summoner hybrid of now), but is probably going to mean we would gain Aetherstacks by other actions. Protect gone is weird, necessary, but Yoshi was quite infatuated with it. Now, surprised to see diversion, Refresh and Lucid Dreaming gone. Guess it has to do with the MP changes. But why diversion? Will jobs receive more aggro managing skills?. Also why is Sword Oath and Blood for Blood gone? I though they were allright. It doesn't matter though, it is probably fake, but some of thos could be quite nice.

On another topic, is DRK supposed to take so much damage while leveling? I can tank quite safely with WAR and didn't have too much problem with PLD, but DRK really takes big hits. There was a pull that sadly we fail, but after rotating all my cooldowns, using Abyss Drain like a madman and even Living Death. Is DRK shit until it gets TBN or something? I find it fun to play and challenging, but is quite surprising the difference in survavility comparing it to the other tanks.

Perhaps they were. It was at Doma Castle. I'll say I actually hold quite a lot, but still got killed. I was a bit undergeared though, and so was the healer, so it may have been that. Though the DPS did felt quite slow, despite being a SAM and a BLM.

The beginning of Doma is a shit to tank if you are undergeared. I had problems with it the first time I ran paladin though it. Didn't help that the healer couldn't handle it at all and bolted after the first wipe. Once you get past the first boss it becomes noticeably easier to tank outside of a few hot spots.

It's rough for it's level. Even going in with full HQ gear for your level you'll still run into some problems if you mass pull before the first boss.


I don't see them removing Fluid Aura. It's niche, but has actual use while leveling and sometimes in dungeons too. Plus it's used in an early CNJ quest. About half of the rest I can't see them removing because that would necessitate a class rework, and it doesn't make much in the way of sense to do something like adding the Riddles to MNK only to up and take away that mechanic the very next xpac.

Then, you aren't able to read into subtle mentions. Just notice how in both scenes, Aeris is put in a place and situation that would imply prostitution. Remember that both games were still forbidden to mention prostitution directly, by the industry's (lack of) standards at the time. The writers let it implicit instead.


The flower prostitute wanted to substitute her boyfriend for anyone that she could perceive as him, in appearance. Anyone would do. That makes Cloud a cuck.

Had Castrum Meridianum pop up in mentor roulette today. So we start and for once the tanks don't try to pull everything in sight and only draw the enemies away from the searchlights back to the party to get burned down while the lights are shut off. However right as that happens this RDM bombs straight up the road to grab all the enemies and starts pulling them towards the boss arena. The party starts to break up with half going with the RDM and the other half starting and stopping trying to figure out what to do. Tanks say fuck it and run down the road pulling the whole mob with them. Everyone gets to the end of the road and the RDM is trying to solo the boss before the mobs have been burned. Thing turns into a giant clusterfuck but eventual the boss gets taken care off. During the cut scene I tried to explain the searchlight mechanics to the RDM and I get met with

>Dude chill out it's just a lvl 50 MSQ it doesn't matter. You should be grateful I sped it up.

So I try explaining how doing 10 seconds with of dungeon mechanics will save you two minutes later on. All of a sudden one of the other players chimes in about how every mentor is an asshole and how I am disrupting gameplay by forcing a playstyle on other people. Other sprouts start chiming in and all of a sudden they are telling everyone that they have to report me. I noped out of there and took the time out but I can't help thinking what the fuck is wrong with these people? I have literally run that dungeon hundreds if not over a thousand times, with every class possible. I thought the point of being a mentor was to help people learn to do runs so that mistakes don't make things drag out or blow up into wipes. Is being told that there is a better way to do things if you play smart instead of rushing in regardless of role or mechanics some such a condescending thing that even mentioning that someone is playing poorly tantamount to harassment and abuse?

I haven't had a GM contact me yet but if they actually followed through with their threats I can expect one tomorrow.

If a GM does contact you ask him to pull up the chatlog from there. If you weren't cursing at them you'll be in the free.

Odds are a GM will look at it before contacting you and ignore it since the RDM was encouraging everyone report you instead of letting it happen naturally.

You were in fact trying to force a playstyle that's against the new ToS. So who knows, the GM may just put a week suspension on you because fuck you pay them more money you useless pay pig. Or ban you because you're addicted enough to get a Cardboard crown, and make you rebuy the game.

At the opening of the dungeon by turning off the searchlights and not agroing the mob in the middle of the road you have 6 less adds to deal with. By not turning off the alarum and not tripping the searchlights second area after the first boss you have 6 less adds to deal with. In the third area after the second boss if you don't agro the extra mob and turn off the alarum 3 less adds to deal with. In the fourth area after you open the gate if you turn off the alarums you have six less colossi to deal with.

All of those adds add up to a lot of extra time you are wasting that could be mitigated with under ten seconds of patience each time. Depending on the party it can be up to five minutes not wasted on useless confrontations. Taking the time to pay attention to how the level is built saves you every one involved time and effort. Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.

You can farm Castrum for Poetics that you can use to buy gear at Idyllshire to donate to your Grand Company to increase your standing. If it is run correctly it is a good way to raise your GC standing at be at top of your server's weekly standings. If you are a Free Company of one person it is especially hard to compete against FCs that have hundreds of people so when it comes up in Mentor Roulette, and is run right, it is a treat that will help you struggle against the likes of oWo and their several dozen no-life trannies.

It seems there is quite a considerable siphoning of money generated by FF XIV. Can't give you any source right now, but I seem to remember that a great amount of the money went to other projects, particularly FF XV and KH3, which as we all know were fucking expensive and not profitable, while the team just received an adjusted budget. It would be no exaggeration to say FF XIV is keeping the company afloat at this point, with the occasional small game that becomes a hit (Bravely Default, Nier Automata, Octopath Traveler). Not to say you are wrong about them being incompetent and lazy in certain areas (still for the life of me cannot understand why we can't go barefoot)

565040  No.16474407


>combat slow as fuck

To be honest, this is pretty much a non argument.. Why is slow inherently bad? Why is it slow? Slow compared to WoW? It says nothing.


Here though, >856199 has a very good point. It is not that combat is slow, is that the way the game is design to ease first timers to MMOs has, as an inherently problem, that you receive your skills bit by bit, and classes are braindead until you get to 50, with most of them still being incomplete and janky until 60, and a few until 70. There is clearly a big problem in the design of classes in leveling content and of how synch works right now.

>raids are boring

This is no argument. You are no saying absolutely anything with this statement beyond the fact that you find them boring. I find many of the raids fun. Some better than others, usually they add unique mechanics so they feel varied while still making you use what you have learned. They also compensate the simplicity of the many of the classes and skill rotation by actually requiring good execution, which means, keeping your damage rolling, reacting to any mistakes or RNG element a fight may have and do mechanics. Of course, this mainly apply to Expert (though some EX easier than other), Salvage and Ultimate. Not all are good mind you, some become simple meat shields that can be done whit your eyes closed, but others are quite demanding. If anything, you can criticize that they relay to much in memorization and execution and not so much in quick thinking and reaction.

>have to slog through a shitty ass singleplayer campaign that takes a fucking million years before you can actually get to the fun stuff

Totally valid complain, as is stand. SE ought to cut down on filler, specially ARR. They are remnants of the troubled development of the game after the fall of 1.0. The fucking jewish chinks wont do it though cause then they wouldn't sell so many "jump" potions.

>even then the "fun" stuff is only mildly satisfying at best

Again, same that with point 2, this doesn't tell us anything.

> worse than nu-wow

I doubt it, then again, I don't play WoW, so I can't tell.

Overall, you could argument your shit better. The games has quite a lot of flaws, that probably won't be fixed because of it established player base,a mix between casual players and raiding players, which mean they would want to keep content for both, so we can rule out deep class customization or horizontal gear progression, so braindead players don't fuck up. Furthermore, as Yoshi seems to want to play it safe, and avoid any WoW situation by changing the game so much they alienate their playerbase, a lot of the major problems the game has won't be addressed; empty and boring overworld, lack of risk and sense of adventure, deep in the class design, non conventional classes (DRK won't ever use HP, there won't be any class that doesn't fit neatly on the trinity, etc. Just look at Blue Mage), trash in dungeon being just "pull and kill", linear dungeon, crafters and gatherers being "second class citizen", with making their best crafteable gear usually 2 tiers behind the current patch, relegating them to being "glamour" crafters most of the time unless you do consumables. Shitty glamour system despite how much is the system used and how popular it is, serious problem when designing new and different content that aren't raids, 24 man raids, trials or dungeons, meaning things like diadem and Eureka have failed and most people find them not "fun", with the only exception being the Palace of the Death, which is actually quite a nice bit of content. Bad PvP, where classes are gutted and have a very reduced skill set, very unbalanced with ranged classes dominating and modes that are not that exciting, as well as lacking incentive to play, as the gear is just for glamour sake. Add to all of this that SE seem to have problems when designing some classes while they nail others, and you have the 3.0 situation with many classes feeling like shit to play while being underpowered, and having to wait 2-3 patches to be fixed, while others like DRK, MCH and MNK have to wait for next expansion.

tl;dr: I like the game, and even I can argument better that you did some of the things wrong with it.


>unless you're a turbo weeb I do not recommend

you just sound like the fucking retards that play WoW and criticize FF XIV as being "weeb" just because it has Japanese elements to it, like, no shit, a game made by a japanese company has typical japanase aesthetics?. I swear to god, every single retarded normalfag blizzardrone use this as an insult why FF XIV is shit.

07b430  No.16475007


K, I'll break it down.

On my lovely lovely journey from 1-70 my biggest complaint combat wise (aside from the lack of abilities which you already pointed out) is the global cooldown.

The reason why slow is bad is because it's absolutely boring, hotkey combat is an inherently dogshit way to do combat which is why wow in part was so popular when it came out, it was fast, it was fun, classes felt explosive.

You sort of get this feel with summoner at 70 but it takes absolutely forever to get there. Summoner is fun at max level, honestly it is. But, the game is filled with so many stupid level sync activities that it feels like my campaign slog in many places was pointless.

Now, onto the raids, some of them are ok, even fun but a lot of trials and raids feel too simple and due to them mostly being a single room of just a single boss it feels quite dull.

I realize this is to make it easier to grind but fuck, it feels almost like warframe in how unsatisfying and robotic the entire thing ends up being. I liked alphascape though and some of the ARR raids.

Still, when playing the different jobs and classes I found myself feeling like I was just playing a worse wow, sort of like when I played rift back in the day.

Also the story fucking sucks and I HATE that not only does it take forever but 90% of the cutscenes aren't fucking voiced. Jesus, no wonder SE is going under.

Idk maybe if they revamped the combat and allowed progression through other means that the msq I'd play it more, also FUCK the housing system. What the fuck were they thinking

565040  No.16475179


Now I think I can agree with you in everything but the MSQ, though here it may be more of a subjective thing. Not voiced cutscenes do not annoy me, I actually like them but perhaps is because I have become disillusioned with them after so many RPGs had to dumb down their dialogue trees for them, plus I'm quite used to them. The rest, I agree.

>Still, when playing the different jobs and classes I found myself feeling like I was just playing a worse wow

Can't say how WoW as, as I played very little, but each time there is synch content I just wish they would let us retain our skills. Also yeah, so many raids are way too easy, with the one you mentioned being the best. Have you tried Savage? They are quite a lot more fun, but nowadays it may be a bit hard to find parties for them. That is the problem with the game catering to everyone, a lot of the content must be made easy for everyone to do, and daily grind is as easy as it gets, but it ends up feeling mechanical as you mentioned. I enjoy optimizing and trying to master all classes, so maybe it doesn't gets to much as it may get to you, but it is probably one of the biggest issues right now. What is worse, they plan to play it safe, so this probably isn't going to change much. I wish they somehow came up with fun alternative content like Palace of the Dead, instead of Eureka and Diadem. Even Eureka has good things that the overworld could use (quest with no markers, strong design on the landscape to help you find your location and a sense of real danger and having to party with others), but they won't.

>Idk maybe if they revamped the combat and allowed progression through other means that the msq I'd play it more, also FUCK the housing system. What the fuck were they thinking

> It's an mmo, who the FUCK thought limited housing was a good idea?

I wonder when SE would finally accept their mistakes and give us unlimited housing similar to FF XI. Let the current wards as they are and give houses for the rest of us. They had to implement the auto demolition shit because of they lack of foresight. Also, it reminds me how there is some fucker in Gigalmesh that is trying to buy a warden all for himself using alt characters/accounts or something like that and had like 20 houses already.

7d1012  No.16475327


I mean, I can understand that much. But it's sorta necessary, since if the auto-destruction didn't exist, there would NEVER be an open spot anywhere, as people who haven't logged on since ARR would still own that property.


If you're new, I can understand the frustration. However, the only reason the housing market is so tight right now, is because SE only recently lifted a pause on auto-destruction. In the coming month you should see a lot of houses across the four neighborhoods become available.

I would also argue that limited housing is a better idea. if anyone could own a house it wouldn't be as special. If you really want some land though, I suggest you could try buying an apartment first. Those usually have a ton of availability, and are only 500k Gil. Alternatively, if you are in a FC that has a FC house, you could buy a 'private quarters' which is the same as an apartment, but only costs 300k. Both are the same size as the inside of a small plot, sans the basement.

Again, the housing market will begin to open up as the auto destructuon was paused. On Malboro there were TONS of open slots for houses, escpeially in areas like The Goblet.

I would also say that there are plenty of houses as is. As of now, there are 1080 houses per residential area, with 4 residential areas. Thats 4320 houses per server, not including apartments.


1.5m-3m Gil for a small plot isn't /that/ hard to get. A very easy way to make more money, is to check the prices for the random monster drops on the marketboards. Some things are used in crafting and worth quite a bit, way more then the 20 gil you can get from just vendoring it. A great example is Dhalmel Hides which go for about 600gil at the moment on Hyperion, while vendoring them only gives like 18 gil. Remember to vendor old gear and start looking into how Retainers work. You can make a lot of extra money by sending your retainers out on hunts, and them bringing back rare items.

If you really wanna get into house decorating and customization,THAT is where the money put is. I easily spent 5m decorating my small plot.


WoW did that in WoD and everyone lost their absolute shit over it. I would argue that FF14 has a way better customization. Have you seen some of the official housing contest winners? Some people get ultra autistic with it.

That is actually quite interesting. Is there some kind of source or math anywhere where it state so?

On another topic, why are the DRK storyline so much better than the rest job quest, and even MSQ? Like is amazing how consistently good the writing for those are, specially in contrast with the job story lines of the other two tanks, which just suck ass. 30-50 and 60-70 were the best, while 50-60 was still pretty good. 60-70 in particular feel like the epilogue of the Heavenward story line and give very nice closure while still exploring the character of the Warrior of Light. The fact that they used mostly HW music helps, and it explored some of the characters of the HW MSQ expanding them more. It also has quite a number of memorable lines and the execution of the scenes and emotional moments are so much better. Hell, they give a better feeling of the "tragedies of war" than the whole SB story line. It actually makes me curious on how they will do it in ShB, but I doubt they can still make it so good.

One of the things that worries me about the future of FF XIV, speaking of the writing, is that it is becoming way to much fan service. Not gonna lie, I found the Return to Ivalice 24-man raid great, love it, but the Omega Raid was underwhelming, even if Alphascape was fun. It was just the " 'membe Kefka? 'membe Ex-death? 'membe, 'membe…". It was weak as fuck. It is becoming ridiculous. And as much as I like Vieras, their addition is very worrying. It is not longer a piece of fan service content, but now a constant of the game world. Viera are a part of Hyedelin, and the canon with the 13 worlds seems to be designed to justify all this shit. And don't get me started in the next Nier raid. I like Nier, but I'm becoming increasingly worried that the identity of the game will be completely lost at this rate. The lore of the game is good, it has always taken nods and references from other FF, some cameos yes, but not this much. At least it is a bit of a consolation that next expansion only the Nier raid will focus on a "guess" game, instead of how both of SB were more about fan service. Let's hope they tone it down.

In a happier note, I found the Return to Ivalice raid great, particularly the last one, both gameplay and story wise. The fights for a 24 man raid were decently challenging (God Thunder Cid in particular was pretty good), visually they were impressive, the had quite a lot of voice acting for the bosses, that was fantastic, and the plot was surprisingly competent at mixing both FF XIV and FF TT worlds. It felt, in a strange way, as the true ending to FF Tactics, even in a way explaining certain things that may not make that much sense in the original ending. Spoiler aheads basically, it touches the fact of how the hell Ramza and Alma survived Ultima's attack. The answer? They didn't, Ramza had to sacrifice himself using the aurecite to seal himself and his companions with Ultima, until his descendants could find a way to defeat Ultima. Alma though didn't join his brother, instead she escaped and had a child with Cid's son, Orran, securing that the Beoulve bloods survives to carry out their fate. Delitas learns of Ramza sacrifice, and together with Orran decide to try and safeguard the truth for future generations, despite Ramza's own wishes to remain anonymous in case someone decides to seek the aurecite for themselves. Also Ramza was considered a Warrior of Light. So after the descendants of Ramza brings the present day WoL to fight Ultima, he together with Agrias, Cid and Mustadio manifest themselves to shield the WoL from Ultima attack, as they had enough power to do so after their souls have been living for hundreds of years in through the power of the aurecite, saving the WoL for dying or going through their same fate and finally defeating Ultima. The closing scene with Ramza and Delitas joining in the afterlife was quite touching, specially when all the characters that are supposed to represent the player's party in FF TT appears. Also I found quite a small and touching how the ending of the original FF TT becomes a made up happy ending to assure that Ramza lives on in the hearth of people and become inspired by his tale It is not perfect and is very bittersweet that this is in a fucking MMORPG of all things, but I would lie if I say I didn't find it touching to say the least.

yes, compare logs on fflogs and warcraft logs and look at the CPM in the casts chart to get a general idea of how fast each job/class plays. ff is still a little slower but not by a whole lot, but wow has some classes (rogues and shadow priest) that have crazy high cpm

the 5 second duration gives you 1 dps spell to cast or 1 medica before having to spam cure 1's again.

When we see the new skills next week maybe WHM will play differently from now

>DO NOT play this game if you want top tier pvp.

I don't care about balance but I'm looking for a good pvp mmo. Preferably one that looks as good as FFXIV. Any suggestions?

Reminder Guild Wars 2 fired their feminist writing head and the game has a boob slider.

A shame the game isn't that great. Especially pve and the class system is shit but the pvp is not very interesting either.

Are they still going to do weekly caps for the new expac? That shit is why I can't stay subbed after catching up to the story since it turns the game into a scheduled bullshit ride you play one or two days a week, but still get to pay for the whole month

The only reason I ever finished the base story line in GW2 was because I wanted to see how dumb it got. I was not disappointed.

They did it in ARR. They did it in Heavensward. They did it in Stormblood. Of course they're going to do it Shadowbringers.

It's a modern MMO, they specifically weeklock shit to keep milking you as a player. Don't be surprised

>It's a modern MMO, they specifically weeklock shit to keep milking you as a player

I see that as more of them trying to avoid "Tigole Syndrome" where a subset of stupidly hardcore degenerates that poop in their socks to avoid getting up plows through new content in the first few days after it drops and then bitches that they have nothing to do and that the devs need to cater to them because their the real group that drives the games success.

aeb0d8  No.16480246


They could just ignore the bitching. The poopsocker gangs are always a minority and even if they all throw a tantrum and cancel their subs, it will amount to nothing.

There is absolutely zero reason to timelock shit besides keeping addicts trapped

649998  No.16480256


If they wanted to avoid the syndrome they fail, the hardcore poopsockers still beat the content usually within a week of release.

36f326  No.16480449


they still have to wait a few weeks before they're fully geared out though

649998  No.16480509


yeah, but that's not really preventing them from complaining about the content at all, because they already beat all the content. I mean if not having 100%'d the game is the only requirement why not just have a .001% drop on a bird that flips and call that endgame content. The only reason the weekly lock exists is only to milk sub time from people who don't have a static to progress through the content quickly while "undergeared"

36f326  No.16480556


im sure it looks that way from the perspective of someone who considers merely beating content as having it done and over with. the poopsockers play the content far after it's been beaten for speed kills or personal logs

8f55a6  No.16481033


Savage maybe, but I don't know anyone who beat the ultimate stuff the week of release. Even the poopsockers had to take at least another week for that.

It's just me or every single DF fucker turns twice as retarded on Alphascape V2? Not even savage, just the normal version is a fucking wipeland every time because apparently some simple visual tells are beyond all these cocksuckers with mentor crowns and every job at 70

f8e323  No.16494738


No pretty much every df party for everything in this game is retarded. I was just doing an anima victory lap on S1T7 with three other cardboard crowns in the party and they could not understand the concept of earth shaker markers. One of these fuckers is constantly in Novice Network strutting his shit and reading redditposts to new players while he flexes, what I can only assume, is his purchased glam. We wiped three times and every time we did I tried to explain the mechanics to these people but instead they chose to run at top speed towards the Sepirot as soon as they were able to. Last run I didn't even bother fighting and was promptly knocked off as I was hammering away at my keyboard giving commands and hoping some of them would pay attention.

Specifically for Midgardsormr though I had a df party as PLD and in the end it was myself and a pretty capable DRK soloing the thing for the last 10% or so since shitters couldn't be bothered to learn three very simple patterns that had been spammed since the beginning of the fight, That DRK was legit good though I kinda wish I had sent him a friends request after the fight but I was so drained I just wanted to not play for a while.
