This shit is why I stopped playing DRK after getting it all the way to 70. Every third or fourth button I was pushing was Dark Arts, and it was starting to cramp my index finger.
Well, there's that and the buff to Steel Cyclone. WAR is more or less immortal now in single pulls for dungeons, and has huge self-healing for chain pulls.
I even solo-fought the last boss in the 4.1 dungeon after the DPS and healer I'd queued with died. They wanted to see me do it and it took around ten minutes, but that last boss is a total pushover that doesn't deal nearly enough damage to WAR to push through their self-healing.

Best way to farm shards for crafting? Oh wait, there isn't one. Game stops dead when you realize it would take ages to get all the shards you need for crafting.

If you don't want to spend the time farming crafting mats or buying them from people who did the farming themselves to level a crafting class, then don't level a crafting class.

Ian Bennett

Best way to farm shards
Retainer ventures. Every 30 minutes they can bring you like 80 shards or 30 crystals. Just make your 2 free ones into Min and bot and have them leveled to 26 and you are all set.

So just another set of autistic group jumprope simon says treadmill fights that are either too easy, or only 1% of the entire playerbase will actually play it?

Can't they, I dunno, add content that won't become irrelevant and boring after 3-4 weeks?
Take a page out of FEZ and add faction vs faction area control wars? At least that leave PvP in a better state than when I last saw it…

Lucas Wilson
Lucas Wilson

A whole expansion happened and all the shit that comes with it.
Only 1% of the fanbase gets to play it
That was the point. It's something to do when you've cleared the current raid tier. Otherwise you'd be in the same boat as some of us here who have beat Neo by week 5 now and would have to wait another 5 months for new raid content.
as far as pvp goes It's pretty good now that it's been standardized

Noah Harris
Noah Harris

But what's the point? They make another new autistic treadmill jumprope grind that doesn't advance anything other than keeping you occupied until you burn out and they release their next autistic treadmill jumprope grind
Wouldn't you rather they develop longer lasting features that encourage you to come back? Like new game modes (sports, rankings and rewards), new PvP content (faction vs faction area control), weekly server events/contents/challenges held by GMs that offer rewards and little participation gifts.

Doesn't the raiding scene bore you? It's been the same autism since launch, God knows I'm tired of it by now

That's true. The delicious part about all of this is the fact that Ultimate coils broke up EU/NA statics and a 6 man static with 2 pick ups beat it. The salt it produced by that pic and the fact the "team" doesn't even have a name really made my weekend.

Lincoln Powell

I wonder where that WAR poster that keep boasting about his deeps and hp. I'm glad this first world clear basically broke the mindset of hardcore players with ridiculous party comp restriction instead of letting player use whatever class that they think is fun.

Owen Morales
Owen Morales

EU and NA are you even trying
They're probably waiting for half a dozen video guides so they don't have to keep pushing into mechanics they haven't seen yet. Then once somebody on their side of the world has cleared, the rest will start claiming the content is too easy.
MNK is still a Job with OGCDs and cooldowns that run counter to the Job's intended behavior, so if you didn't find that fun then no, nothing has changed to make it fun again.

Nathaniel Adams
Nathaniel Adams

EU/NA
What's weird is that those two groups always dominated progression in WoW while the Asian regions never even saw the world's top 10. Actually, I think there was a Korean guild that placed pretty high, but that's about it. For some reason, Japs can't handle the Western MMO formula.

Ryder Morgan
Ryder Morgan

Most western player are always about meta and deeps when doing raids using whatever the edgefags crunched up. Most nips are about teamwork and unity.

And it shows in the raid clear rates. They may not always be the world first in the race, but their average players are way better than most average players in the west.

Levi Walker
Levi Walker

nah, it's because western players care less about wasting other's time and nip players take the content more seriously. also SE fucking over half the country with the server move probably didn't help either.

Hudson Rodriguez
Hudson Rodriguez

They probably watch the video from the JP cleared and learn the mechanic there. It's not an actual "guide" but they got a reference to learn the attack. Even Mr.Happy use it in his podcast or whatever when talking how hard bahamut is, so I guess most raiders do the same. They cleared like what? 4 days after the first clear which have been the most talked about topic in FFXIV community because of they break the meta.

Gavin Young

Does this game have a boost like blizzkike legion does when you buy the latest expansion? I'm kind of interested in it for hardcore raiding because I'm waiting for classic WoW, but last time I tried it I wanted to fucking kill myself having to go through autistic weebshit boring ass quests.

Logan Hernandez
Logan Hernandez

start new game
boost past all the content
help I don't know how to play

this game is bad

Boost potions are a mistake.

Julian Cruz
Julian Cruz

There is no free boost, no. If you want to boost your way past all the "autistic weebshit boring ass quests" on a fresh account, you'll need to:
Buy the Game ($20)
Buy the Expansion ($40)
Buy the Character Level Boost ($25 per class)
Buy the Story Skip ($25)
Once you do all that, you still need to sit through ten hours of questing and level grinding to go from 60 to 70 and complete the Stormblood Main Story Quests. Only after you've done all that do you get to raid, and just like WoW raiding in this game amounts to this
No amount of choreographed keyboard dancing is worth $110 up front, especially if you don't enjoy any other part of the game.

Hudson Wilson
Hudson Wilson

help I don't know how to play

I've been raiding competitively in WoW for a decade.

I don't know why anything matters

Weeb stories are always complete gutter trash.

everybody's kicking me from parties

Unless the japs have revolutionized the tab target hotkey based combat system I doubt this will be the case.

this game is bad

Boosts are bad if the leveling content is good. A 60 boost in vanilla WoW would be retarded because the open world leveling experience is more enjoyable than the actual raid content. A boost in Legion is the only answer to the problem that is going through 100 levels of fetch quests or grinding decade old dungeons with no mechanics.

I don't view Legion or FFXIV as MMO's at all. Neither of these games have actual emphasis on server based community interaction. If your base for what makes a productive social MMO is everquest/vanilla WoW, then both FFXIV and legion are a completely different genre of game all together.

There is no reason to have all of the worst aspects of an MMO in a game that is essentially straight up just not an MMORPG. You get all of the negatives but none of the positives.

I'm saying this as someone who's only interested in vanilla WoW and has only been playing vanilla WoW private servers for the last few years. Your weeb shit world is not interesting, it's not immersive. When your game has absolutely no redeeming qualities to the leveling content, do not be surprised when people want to skip that content.

Samuel Gonzalez

Find the leves that don't require you to leave the zone you're in to turn them in. Then make sure you have all the resources you need ahead of time.
Like, for example, at level 35-45 you can do all your gathering levequests without ever leaving Central Coerthas, so long as you only accept leves that have you turning items in to the NPC in the camp you got the levequest from.

Christopher Jackson

Yea and with how well they perform in this game since SE doesn't give a shit about them there's no reason not to. I think almost everything in this game has been completely automated I find it truly fascinating

Chase Gray
Chase Gray

Thinking of getting into this

-As I understand Lancers were the Huntards of the game. Do they still have that stigma?
-Is Warrior DPS viable or are those abilities to trade off mitigation(Deliverance v Defiance) for damage just to help with questing and off tanking periods (Similar to kitty-bear swapping I suppose)?

Nathaniel Lopez
Nathaniel Lopez

-I haven't really noticed any stigma towards Dragoons lately. There's tons of bad players for every job at this point because of level boosters/palace of the dead so play whatever you think you'll enjoy the most.

-Warrior DPS is very viable and is the main reason they're generally preferred in raids over Dark Knights at the moment. As such you are looking to spend as much time as possible in Deliverance (DPS Stance) even when it's your turn to be the main tank. Aggro shouldn't be an issue because of shirk/shadewalker, plus if DPS aren't shit they will be using enmity reducing moves. On top of this big hits from bosses basically always happen at the same time during a fight. You can easily predict when they're coming and switch to Defiance if necessary, though I believe a cooldown or two plus healer mitigation are normally enough.

Ethan Sanchez
Ethan Sanchez

that works but is often more expensive or far less exp per leve allowance, which is my limiting factor now.

John Wood
John Wood

I think SAM has the worst reputation atm among the community for shit tier players because it's really popular being released with the expansion so you see tons of really bad ones everywhere.
like said, warrior is a tank but all tanks are more or less just dps who have enmity and mitigation responsibilities.

Robert Powell

Dragoon will always be "that class that died a lot" mainly because of the animation lock that you can't get out of.

Samurai also tend to be the biggest fucking whiners when they realize no one wants them in a static group, tending to demand buffs on their class and to nerf everything else, especially ninja who they seem to hate a lot for some reason.

to be fair, ninja is so incredibly good they're basically the most required out of all the classes.

Aiden Young
Aiden Young

This really only applies to a very, very slim total of the game though, for everything else it's a faceroll and you can clear it with anything. The samurai players I've seen tend to be so savagely asspained that they demand ridiculous shit that would make the mechanics trivial such as cross class TA and shade walker, or more potency nerfs and removing TA. Thankfully no one listens to these retards, their fault for picking a meme.

Adam James
Adam James

well no shit you can clear anything with every possible composition within reason, but in terms of melee dps spots, ninja is so good you should have a slot locked for it in every half serious party

Jaxson Hall
Jaxson Hall

I don't really see the problem though, only samurai and monk get excluded, blm is also ass tier yet no one whines about anything else except ninja. Bard, etc are also must haves

Jason White
Jason White

it's not a huge deal. sam and blm are both incredibly good pug carriers because they don't rely on the other members of the group being good to make full use of them. ninja isn't as broken in a group full of shitters who don't know how to optimize around trick attack so the lower personal dps really hits it. bard also needs a drg and scholar to really shine in the dps department and also needs other good members to make the dps increase it brings super good

This might be too complicated to figure out on your own, but you can accomplish the same result by fucking off and not buying the game in the first place.

If your MMO isn't a carbon copy of vanilla WoW it's not a REAL MMO

Luis Anderson

How much grindan do you think we'll need?

Isaac Hughes
Isaac Hughes

Seeing how retarded past questlines were for a weapon that becomes obsolete relatively quickly for the amount of work out in, probably a lot. And if it really is going to be a diadem 3.0 it's going to be the most boring and gay shit alive. Have there been any previews at all or general information saying it's going to be diadem 3.0? It makes sense that it would be but God damn, this company is absolute shit at making good open world content and not instance shit. I've stopped wasting my time running raids or capping tomes because it's such a minor increase and unless you're doing ultimate theres no reason to worry about getting the best gear. It's kind of like how in 2.0 crafting was actually worth while to put your effort into and care about since you could help people get good gear that would actually clear raids and tomestone shit was meh. And now crafting has become purely worthless outside of making housing stuff which doesn't last long anyways since once you're done decorating a house you're done.

Actually I could go full autist about how pointless crafting has become at this point but I'll just say it would be better just removing it from the game entirely at this point because it's really just become a stupid hassle. 2.0 was the best system and everyone who disagrees is either a new fag or never got into end game crafting back then. They somehow managed to casualize an already casual system even more. 3.0 was a big mess and 4.0 fixed a problem that was never a problem in 2.0 and that fix has basically made crafting even less relevant. And let's not forget the massive fuck up for that 170 or 180 gear that NO ONE ever made in 3.0 because of how retarded the mats were to get from a whole slew of classes. The dev team has lost their way and needs to be replaced so we can enjoy some freedom in the game before the new devs become hacks as well.

Jacob Young
Jacob Young

keeping crafting out of raiding aside from consumables is a good thing. it lets people raid on mostly equal ground instead of making everyone obligated to participate in the huge time sink of leveling every crafter to max.
not everyone wants to be a turbo-kike.

Michael Nguyen
Michael Nguyen

Then crafting becomes pointless. They should have just sucked up what they started doing in 2.0 and kept it that way. While there are other ways to be a turbo kike and rip people off, there's nothing actually WORTH crafting. Pre 70 gear is all vendor shit and let's be honest you don't need HQ versions and people who buy them are retarded af (they make up a large segment of my gil revenue so I'm cool with it). Like I said before housing shit is fine to make when the japs release new housing. Aside from that crafting feels like it's lost any value in the game. On my server i make more money selling a pair of Marid leather crafting gloves than I do the 320 chest piece. It used to be fun making hard gear and helping gear up FC mates. I'd even do it for free if they could get the annoying mats from coils. 2.0 was better and I'll refuse anyone who tells me otherwise.

crafting and specialists are pointless

You can make the argument that gil is worthless but that's for another discussion.

Brayden Perry
Brayden Perry

It was made pointless. Sure it exists now to make retarded shit that takes a click of a button and that's about it. I'm just saying it had more depth to it than it does now and felt like it was a meaningful part of leveling to make worthy gear instead of now where it's just making crafting gear to make more crafting gear. What was the point of adding in the new crafting gear if there's nothing else to make??? Xiv has become just a delayed content game and suckers keep gobbling it up. My sub runs out soon and I'll probably stay on break for some time.

Also yea, gil is worthless there isn't any arguement to be had. Buy a house and and level Crafter/gather classes and you're done with ever needing excessive amounts of gil. Materia comes from dungs/hunts, gear comes from tomes and drops, and everything else is farmed. Gil is worthless and inflation is absolutely awful in this game

What did they change to make crafting so useless? I used to do a lot of crafting in 2.0 and I loved it. I started to get back into the game just recently with 4.0. What's wrong with it?

Maybe because you're dumb with the market. 320 HQ right side accessories are all sought after by hardcore raider.

then look for something that isnt vendor shit like DoL/DoH accessories.

yes

Any recommendations?
MMO minion, they have auto script for dungeon run too but dont use it since it pretty obvious you're using a bot, but for gathering, nobody will notice it. That doesn't mean you can run it on auto and then leave it, you need to monitor it because theres a bunch of variable like enemies and FATE spawn that will messed it up.

Austin Flores

Yea what the above user said is good advice. I have both mmominion and rebornbuddy with the Lisbeth add-on. If you want to make mad bank with absolutely zero work get rebornbuddy and the Lisbeth add-on and never worry again about gathering and crafting stupid shit that takes far too much time. I would actually recommend Lisbeth over mmominion simple because of how much shit it's capable of doing. Each bot has its own advantages but if you're gathering stuff to turn into crafts your are better going with Lisbeth. For gathering to sell in mass amounts than mmominion works fine

Whats the point and do they really expect this stopping anyone from doing it?

Plausible deniability. This way they can say "oh hey look we tried to tell em otherwise" and when people inevitably make shit from Nintendo or Metallica or Elton John or whatever the fuck then SE can wash their hands of it.

Whether that actually will do anything I can't say, but that's the feeling I get. Something akin to a "ok guys, you TOTALLY shouldn't use the awesome really in-depth feature to cover songs in-game wink wink nudge nudge."

tips for playing

It's a story-heavy game. If you want to rush to end-game to do stuff, then you'll need to buy a jump potion two actually, one for story one for a character job but wtf is the point of skipping story in a story-focused game? Taking your time, enjoying things as they come, and trying out all the classes/jobs is the best way to enjoy this game.

You also only need one character. "Alt" classes/jobs can be done all on one character, so the only reason for an alt would be on another server or to access more market board space beyond what a single character can provide rare, but hyperjew market types sometimes shell out more shekels to SE so they can more easily dominate the market with more selling space.

Classes vs. jobs. Everyone starts as a combat "class." Two potential tanks (Marauder, Gladiator, aka MRD and GLD), one healer (Conjurer aka CNJ) or five DPS (Archer, Pugilist, Arcanist, Thaumature and Lancer, aka ARC, PGL, ACN, THM and LNC). These classes, when you hit 30, can take up a quest that unlocks a specific job that basically takes what the class does and does it better. I.e. MRD becomes a Warrior (WAR), GLD becomes a Paladin (PLD), CNJ becomes a White Mage (WHM). These are modeled after classic FF jobs, and include other standalone jobs like Dark Knight (DRK) Astrologian (AST) and Samurai (SAM). Each class and job has it's own questline that helps to flesh out and expand on the world at large. For example, the WAR questline involves taming the "inner beast" that resides at the core of the warrior battle style, and eventually becomes a humorous love story filled with all kinds of memeable moments first pic related of hilarity.

Contrasted to this, the DRK questline tends to focus on the personal affects and cost towards your character, while the WHM questline focuses on utilizing your powers to heal and purify the land and it's people, as well as maintaining the magical balance of the world.

In short, there's a shitton of stuff to do, cutscenes everywhere, loads of lore and background to absorb, vistas to marvel at, and wannabe gods to fight. But it takes effort to see and enjoy all that. If you're looking to start playing and be at the end-game within two weeks, you're gonna have a bad time. While it's technically possible if you skip all cutscenes, it'll require more than just casual daily play. I imagine if you watch cutscenes and don't follow any leveling guides or anything i.e. you just follow the game flow naturally and play what and how you enjoy in the moment you're probably looking at at least a month of 3-4 hours a day play to get to 60, then another 3 weeks to finish off the level 60 content and get to the current level cap of 70.

Have some screenies I've taken recently.

Going off of what said, FF14 is definitely a story-based game. It's a bit shallow in the lower levels, unfortunately, due to it's rocky start, but the further along you get, the better it becomes. I like to think of the turning point as level 35 or so, when you beat titan, cause that's when it starts to get fairly decent. The good shit hits when you get to 50, and you meet this motherfucker in first pic. Hildi-fucking-brand, investigator extraordinaire. If ever there was a reason to beat the story up to 50, it is him. Exclusive clothing, fates, emotes, animations, and the best writing in the entire game is all attributed to him, and he's a sidequest! but his family does show up in the MSQ sometimes.

This game's as fun as you make it. A lot of it's solo work, with the real multiplayer being dungeons and trials, but you can certainly hang out with friends and such and have a good time that way. Some of the best nights I've had on here are hanging out at my local club/lewdzone no, i'm not on balamung, or just running casual dungeons with randos via the roulette. Speaking of, however, the roulette is an important part of levelling. Once you complete a certain amount of duties and trials, you'll unlock a roulette that can be accessed. You can use it anytime, but the first time you use it per day, you'll earn a nice juicy XP and money bonus that scales with your level.It selects a dungeon at random and puts you in it, so it's a nice way to spice things up while also levelling quickly. I recommend it.

You'll enjoy yourself a bit more if you try to immerse yourself, or even roleplay a little bit. If you attach yourself to your fantasy self, it feels a lot more satisfying getting a new piece of attire or completing a duty. I like to get all dark and broody when I play dark knight, cause it just feels more fun to play when you feel as dark as your character looks. Basically, just. Let loose. Don't worry too hard about things, since a lot of it becomes natural after a time. Meta's not that important unless you're raiding hardcore, and by that point, you may have gotten a feel for it already. I'm just gonna plug hyperion here, since I like it and it's a good server, and if you do wind up coming here, I'll certainly hang out with you. As a mentor, if I party with you (you'll have a green leaf above your head to denote you being new), you'll gain a passive XP bonus. You can also gain a headband that gives you additional bonus XP if you refer a friend or get a referral code (i'm sure anyone in here can do it, it also gives you some bonus stuff and an emote), and also, eating food gives even more XP.

In short, keep with it, it gets way better over time, find a buddy and have a good ol' time getting into it, and don't let people get you down.Despite all the complaints leveled here in this thread, it's way more solid than any MMO I've played, and I think you'll enjoy it greatly. let me know if you do get into hyperion. We can hang out.

If I choose a healer (I love healing) is there like a dual spec thing, do I level as a DPS then switch specs for dungeons, how does healing class work in general in this game?

No, no "dual class" but healers have solid dps options on their own. Soloing is a non-issue, with all 3 healers getting some kind of powerful (but expensive) aoe eventually. AST get's an aoe that requires a target to hit with, WHM get's a PBAOE+stun that can be spammed (DR on the stuns until enemies are immune after the 4th one tho) and SCH (Scholar) gets the ability to take their dots and spread them to nearby enemies. On top of that, each job has access to a dps boosting skill called Cleric Stance that serves as a minor dps cooldown, and all three jobs have other job-unique skills that help with both soloing and group content.

General healer playstyle tends to be more aggressive, with the idea being that if you have mana and no one is dying, then you may as well do some dps. Some abilities Assize for WHM, Earthly Star for AST function as both healing and dps abilities as well. Once you get past 40 or so, healing becomes much more engaged. Each class has at least one dot to manage SCH has 3 I think, but does less straight up "nuke" type damage than AST and WHM and the game then becomes dealing with mechanics and keeping everyone topped off while trying to squeeze out as much damage in your free time as possible without using too much mana and getting caught with your pants down.

Hudson Howard
Hudson Howard

Seriously tho, when does this game go on sale again?

Jose White
Jose White

Well a thalassocracy is really any nation whose power is primarily sea based. The best example of the near modern era would be the British Empire. Whose power was rooted in the most powerful navy in the world at the time.
As it doesn't specify any form of governance the term itself is mostly irrelevant on this front.

So a casual examination of the governing structure of Limsa Lominsa reveals a highly militaristic hierarchy built along explicitly fascist lines. With its heavily centralised, hierarchical but interdependent command structure. Even the process by which a grand admiral is selected and removed is clearly inspired by fascist thinkers.

But it gets better. Merlwyb frequently invokes fascist thinking and principles. Even the faction catch phrase "till sea swallows all" is clearly inspired by the same sort of thinking as that adopted by fascists, namely that life is a constant struggle to stay alive/afloat. She also frequently compares the nation to a ship at sea which again is so fascist its hilarious, as fascists typically regard the state/nation as one large army focused on its own survival in which everyone is expected to do their part and is dependent on the rest to do theirs.

One particular line she uses fairly early on with her original and vastly superior english voice actor: "Mark ye well: a crew without unity is no crew at all -tis but a mass of drowned men" in reference to the citizens of Limsa Lominsa and recent discord among them.

Oh and the Yellowjackets have oft been cited as a reference to the blackshirts and other similar groups.

Jacob Cook
Jacob Cook

Like said, 'thalassocracy' is not a government type but an adjective that describes a country as having primarily sea-based power. A state can be a fascist thalassocracy, which is exactly what Limsa Lominsa is - or, at the very least, a military dictatorship with the power based in the navy.

Zachary Phillips
Zachary Phillips

Well funny story.
Due to the high degree of autonomy of the fleets and population. It's hard to define Limsa Lominsa as a dictatorship.
Individual fleet admirals and even captains can tell the Grand Admiral to go fist herself and ignore her orders. Though she and the chief quartermaster seem to control provision of vessels giving the fleets good reason to stay on her good side.

Overall the authority and power of the Grand Admiral seems highly fluid and inconsistent from one moment to the next.
She for definite controls the Maelstrom and Yellowjackets outright. But the majority of Limsa Lominsa's naval power is outside her immediate authority.
It doesn't help that Merlwyb has essentially rewritten a lot of the rules regarding her post and essentially remade her position into something it wasn't prior to her becoming the chief power in Limsa Lominsa.

Though this willingness to induce rapid change when needed is also indicative of a fascist mindset. As typically fascists are of a revolutionary mindset and have little difficulty grappling with the idea of sudden change or complete overturns of the status quo. So long as it serves a useful purpose.

Fun aside: It was a previous admiral in a similar overall position to Merlwyb that create Eorzeas current standard system of weights and measurements after one individual caused a lot of trouble arguing over the old thumb based system. The admiral in question grabbed him, beat the shit out of him, cut off his thumb and then had it cast in iron. At which point they declared that thumb was now the standard from which all measurements would be derived.

Well this is generally more about day to day affairs.
But yes Limsa Lominsa as a state seems to be quite happy to cast aside shit like paperwork or proper process when its necessary. Cementing their fascist credentials further.
We even see the city states quartermaster (essentially their chief financial official. Think minister of finance rolled in with head of the national bank) displaying a willingness to disregard procedure and rules when the benefits of doing so are sufficient.

But then all this makes sense when you consider their nautical background. To them the nation is a ship at sea. Ships rules and procedures don't exist for the sake of it but for very specific and required purposes, the hazardous environment meaning you can't afford a lot of the posturing and frippery that is feasible on land.

The only adventure I want is within her undergarments.
Or at least a paladin story that isn't shit.

Keeping Medica II up 24/7? Asylum for mechanics that don't require immediate heals? Assize off CD? Can't really offer more since I don't main WHM.

Zachary Taylor
Zachary Taylor

you're not really going to crack much higher than that since whm is the best active healer in game currently, so the other two healers tend to be able to dps more when a whm is present.
but having said that, the best thing you can do is really learn the pattern of a fight. you'll figure out the times when incoming damage is lower and you can squeeze in more stones before going back to healing, either directly or via some kind of cooldown. all in all, it's just individual fight practice more than anything else. some spell speed doesn't hurt either.

Julian Foster
Julian Foster

don't forget aero 2 uptime. don't bother with medica 2 uptime. like any other job though you'll want to know when mechanics that pertain to your job happen and in your case that would be tank busters and raidwide aoe. try to have usages of your free healing spells such as tetragrammaton, benediction, asylum, etc planned out so you get the most uses out of them without overhealing, since it lets you keep dpsing. also, don't forget about divine benison and plenary indulgence.

this also depends on your cohealer, but learn to trust them more. if you see an earthly star on the ground, don't worry about healing the next big aoe aside from maybe a single medica.

welcome back. war's the best MT nowadays on top of best tank damage

Cooper Edwards
Cooper Edwards

war best mt
not to nitpick, but im going to nitpick.

war best damage
yeah, easily, no argument there. pld's advantage is being able to cycle between two "hot" dps rotations, one of which is ranged. that makes positioning in some situations easier (i.e. tentacles in O2s) but generally won't make up for what war brings.

war best mitigation
as far as cooldowns go yeah, but in terms of passive mitigation pld wins thanks to block working on fucking everything. Shadow Wall and Sentinel need a CD buff to bring them in line with Veng imo.

war best utility
pld still wins thanks to cover/intervention and the ability to heal others, but the Shake It Off change really helped war out a lot. being able to press two buttons and toss out a 12% max hp shield every 90s (RI +SiO) is fucking sweet. doubly so since RI is nearly useless in end-game situations due to most attacks being magical (or in the case of O3s having forced crits that pierce parry if Awareness isn't up). Divine Veil is kinda shit in comparison, since it needs an outside heal to proc and can't be stacked as high as SiO can. it's not hard to throw Inner Beast+RI onto the tail end of Veng or ToB and get a 20% max hp raid-wide shield every 90s while keeping most of the power of the longer defensive CD intact.

so overall i'd say pld ~= war in terms of mt capability, with pld edging war out in general utility while war edges pld out in dmg. but drk is well and truly borked. drk needs help badly.

I didn't claim war was best utility. all they got is shake it off and slashing debuff but that doesn't really count because ninja is omnipresent. as for divine veil, I think it's about equal with shake it off if only due to the shorter cooldown which lets it be up for every almaghest and other stuff that happens in 2 minute intervals

I saw war is best MT mostly because they can pull without losing dps since swapping into deliverance doesnt cost anything so a tomahawk+equilibrium then straight into deliverance is good enough with a ninja in the party. that and holmgang being on a 3 minute cooldown makes cheesing tank busters piss easy. in halicarnassus they can awareness the first/third/fifth etc and holmgang the 2nd, 4th, 6th. also insanely good for exdeath and neo's dualcast thunder 3

also holy spirit being ranged doesn't mean you'll ever want to be away from the boss any more than usual since you're losing out on your buffed autoattacks from sword oath

NIN main here. Your DPS is a little bit low compared to others at any same level of performance (200~300 lower), but you boost theirs by a lot so yeah. Very useful. If going to the top tier, a NIN is mandatory.

Noah Roberts
Noah Roberts

don't mislead people. nin's personal dps is in the lower half of the dps jobs, but at the 75th percentile level which is where i expect you fags to be at a minimum, nin is only like 9-10% lower dps than the top personal dps jobs.
playing just a bit better can easily make up the difference.

Carter Butler

playing just a bit better can easily make up the difference

threadly reminder that nin got nerfed because the players were using a more optimal dps rotation than the devs were.

user is right though, nin dps is very solid at the top end. combined with their group utility they are easily the most sought after dps class

Eli Gutierrez
Eli Gutierrez

NIN was sought after by metafag because of their utilities, mainly trick shot

Jose Kelly
Jose Kelly

that's not the point i'm making.

the point is the player base were doing nin better than they devs were, so in essence the devs nerfed nin because they were unable to optimize it's dps the way the player base did. it's just a jab at the devs for being noobs

Nathaniel Ramirez
Nathaniel Ramirez

they nerfed nin because the way players were playing it was unexpected and stronger than they had intented. not because the developers wanted the players to play the job like they had imagined, but because the unintended way was stronger than they thought ninja should be.

**it's still op and will probably stay that way forever*8

Yeah you get your first month free. You can also just play for free until level 35 I think. However you cannot talk to people with a free account.

Can I still participate in the endgame if I don't have a lot of time to play? I'm looking at one day on the weekend and maybe 2 days mon-fri? I've currently got a 46 dragoon, but am not sure if I wanna drop money on SB and a sub quite yet.

Jonathan Reed

Probably. I mean some people only play one day a week after hitting cap.

Isaac Flores

Is that really the case? What was the issue?

Adam Roberts
Adam Roberts

It's more that the devs don't playtest much. They work out averages mathematically and build the game based on those averages.
What they found was that for ninja this didn't work very well.

Remember with machinist they initially had the opposite problem where the players weren't achieving the sort of numbers they had worked out as the average.

Lucas Harris

If you can get a static of competent players you probably can. Me and my friend have been stuck on a raid fight for 3 weeks now because we keep getting garbage on the party finder.

Oliver Clark
Oliver Clark

my static gets our weeklies (1-4s) done in <2 hours usually and that's with fuckups. it's definitely doable but you're going to have to put in a lot more work initially to get good enough logs for a group like that to take you.

Noah Fisher
Noah Fisher

basically what this user said. it was a wonderful example of "works better in practice than it does on paper" while the mch issues were "looks better on paper than it actually works out in reality,"

Ryder Parker
Ryder Parker

I mean, what were players doing that SE had to adjust?

Bentley Walker
Bentley Walker

I think with ninja the main issue is that players are a lot more competent in regards to ninjitsu mudras than SE anticipated they would be. I suspect their algorithms failure rate is a lot higher than that among experienced ninja players.
Back when I mained ninja I rarely fucked up a mudra. Then theres the unexpected doton synergy.

For machinist the problem is more down to timing. Machinist is extremely timing sensitive, it's easy to fuck it all up especially on endgame content which can be very timing dependent for a class like machinist. So the mathematically derived average wasn't matching up to real world experiences when enemy timing and the unpredictability of battles got taken into account.

Though with machinist their initial was "git gud"

Luke Flores
Luke Flores

I don't know why anybody would use MCH in any endgame or any content, its objectively the least fun class to play. The rotation are so fucking complicated with very little reward in term of damage. BRD,RDM and SMN are some much better in term of damage and utilities., MCH offers nothing.

Levi Gray
Levi Gray

Machinist is the current meta for speedkills I hear
and if played right its DPS is pretty high up

Kayden Peterson
Kayden Peterson

it's more like MCH only needs to play the game once every minute because it's dps is so obscenely weighted on it's CDs.

Christopher Price

There is one on Lamia of a bunch of former ToS players. You got to be able to take tough criticism and banter though. Had some guy from /monster/ run away because he couldn't take us trying to get him to 70 so he can do endgame stuff with us. Also no ERP or faggotry.

Jayden Thompson

Really wish their was an anime of this in similar fashion to XV had Brotherhood, in a sense it might be really hard to create original characters for the anime, who all can be put together, but well, maybe one episode featuring each class, and their lives.

How did your parents forgot to drop you on your head when massive fag like you was born? Lol.

OP, I just wish to know, well what is your favourite class? Not a recommendation, but just so people with taste in similar class can share their joy for it, Also if you had an anime waifu which could be any of the class, which one would it be.

The image was made way back by /a/ board on the manga called "Dungeon Menshi" and the final look of meme had the blue background of batter (Oni girl) toned down to more pleasant shade of blue, because an user said the color looks really displeasing and his OCD could not stop till image was perfected, so both of anons who made this thanked each other for their efforts, and that is how this meme was born.

if you're not raiding with the intention of personal improvement, you're doing it wrong. getting a new personal best on fights is what keeps me raiding months after bis gear.

Parker Ortiz
Parker Ortiz

if you're not raiding with the intention of personal improvement
But raiding isn't just about self-improvement, its about teamwork too and you can do that unless you have a static. If you want to improve your deeps and rotation, you just can use training dummy and stroke your e-peen on fflogs

Carter Lewis
Carter Lewis

there's unfortunately not that much teamwork so pugs are perfectly fine for practicing your rotation in the context of fights.

Guys, how does savage compare to mythic in Wow in terms of difficulty? As far as I can tell, classes in both games are equally pruned so the games are similar in that regard, but I have a hard time determining which game has harder content. Wow has more, that's for sure.

Isaac Robinson
Isaac Robinson

equally pruned? not at all. savage is probably easier on average since it's tuned to be pug-able but there's ultimate coil if you're after ultra-hard level raiding.

Oliver Cooper
Oliver Cooper

Yeah, ability pruning. Wow did that didn't it? SB did it too. I don't know if Wow is worth getting into for its pve content. I wonder how demanding heroic is and different dungeon tiers are.

Christopher Reyes
Christopher Reyes

I quit wow because of the disgusting gearing process that game has now.
as for pruning, we lost stuff but there's still inter-job synergies and uniqueness in how each job fits or doesn't into the meta

Austin Bailey
Austin Bailey

As far as Wow meta is concerned, it seems that most braindead jobs do most dps while classes like feral druid and ww monk sit in the lower middle. I don't know much about gearing, but in ff14 it's very easy and straightforward, I'd actually like more hoops to jump through that doesn't just come down to farming normal raids and waiting until you get enough tomestones.

Julian Edwards
Julian Edwards

the rng legendaries/warforging titanforging thing on loot drops in wow is awful imo. I prefer the static drops ffxiv has and gearing through a mix of weekly tomes and savage drops/books feels good enough
