Any big changes that I should wait for in the 5.3 patch if I'm looking to come back and haven't played since 5.0?

>>514357371New Eureka-esque mode will be released sometime during 5.3, new beast tribe, new Nier raid, apparently a ton more story than usual. If you haven't played since 5.0, 5.1 and 5.2 have a lot of fun in store in the form of the new relic weapons, treasure maps, best tribes, and some of the most fun trials in the game.

>>514357371Not really, the .3 story finale so expect a trial equivalent to Nidhogg/Tsukiyomi. We're getting a 24 man, probably some new beast tribe shit, and maybe the new eureka esque grind area. Next raid tier is 5.4 and the ultimate is 5.5 so still months away.

>>514358461Dont listen to this fag, 5.3 is going to be barebones as fuck, just like every odd patch, the content that is going to be worth a shit is the eureka-like zone for the relics, but that thing will come 2 months AFTER 5.3 drops, don't resub till then or else you will regret it.

I just unlocked pitch perfect with Bard, and it seems like a crapshoot getting 3 stacks. Should I always wait for 3 stacks or shoot at 2?

>>514349391Aether is aight

I'm confused.If 5.3 concludes Shadowbringer's story, then do the patches afterwards set up the events for the next expansion?Or is the next expansion coming after 5.3?

>>514366403Good taste user, highlander girls are the best

>>514372758Yeah, .4 and .5 set up the next expansion (though .4 may have a self contained story, ala the Warriors of Darkness plotline in HW which only was relevant to SB in that explains how Ilberd got Nidhogg's eyes).

>>5143727585.4 and 5.5 are the early setup for the next expansion. I believe we normally get a teaser trailer for the next expansion sometime between .4 and .5 but i may be wrong.

>>514360014It doesn't matter, only the DC.Crystal if you want casual RP faggotry.Aether if you want spergy raid faggotry.Primal if you want unaspected faggotry.Crystal is pretty chill and it's very active right now especially since it hosts Balmung which is the largest and most active world.

>>514373210I wonder if they are gonna announce 6.0 when the NA fanfest was supposed to happen digitally or if they'll push the announcement back to the second fanfest.

>>514372770look at this dudelook at the top of his head lmaoooooooo

>>514373318I'd like to think they'd keep with tradition and show it there, but 5.3 might not be the only thing that's delayed. If 6.0 is getting slowed down too everything might get pushed back.

>>514372443wait for 3. also you get stacks much faster starting at lv 68

>>514372443If WM is about to run out then shoot at 2, but you should always be aiming for 3 stacks. Especially since, if you have both DoTs running, you should have above a 50% chance of getting a stack every 3 seconds.

>>514355134They should add the Arithmetician class FIRST and the armor later

>>514356851faggot

There should be more game over cutscenes like they did with bismark and sof. I want one where a female primal do some mindbreak kinky shit fade to black.

>>514385309Before it used to be>The Balance - flat damage up>The Spire - TP regen up (useless in most scenarios)>The Ewer - MP regen up (too dinky, AST usually took it to offset their sheer MP consumption)>The Bole - Defense up (would go to tank and nobody else outside of emergencies)>The Spear - Crit-rate up (goes to either the dragoon or the bard, failing that whichever DPS is doing best)>The Arrow - cast/skill-speed up (went to Samurai, Ninja, Monk, Black Mage, or the AST)More often than not the card you drew was not useful and you were fishing for a Balance to turn into an AoE buff. Or, if you were assisting a parse-whore, fishing for a Balance to extend or enhance to pad out a parse.

>>514386616people were only using Balance. and it was possible to go on a long run of having no useful cards several draws in a row. draw had a much longer cooldown as well

>>514386616Every card but balance was a meme.

>>514386616That kind of class design doesn't fit a controlled game like XIV, you spent most of your time fishing for 1 card and that was your gameplay experience.

>>514386705Yep, you'd end up either fishing for a couple of specific set ups and hating yourself when you got bad draws.

>>514386616I wouldn't be surprised if it was because people only ever fished for AoE balance. I used enhanced arrow and balance more myself. Loved getting BLMs in my party, would always try and help them maximize their damage by tossing them those and shielding them if an AoE was coming up so they don't have to stop.

>>514386705>>514386896t. shitter retardsArrow, balance, and spear were all good. Bole was situationally useful, Ewer was god tier in prog, and spire while shit would have been good if they'd just made it increase direct hit rate. Literally nobody who actually played AST "just fished for balance" except in the most hardcore of parse runs where you'd jump off a cliff if the warrior didn't crit his fell cleaves.>>514386837> and it was possible to go on a long run of having no useful cards several draws in a rowIt was just as possible to have a bad streak as it is now.

>>514386465Iroha exists in a future Vana'diel getting absolutely raped by the Emptiness outside of Reiseijima Temple, they really don't have to do much with her if they send the WoL to Vana'diel. And her master aka the player is dead in her timeline which is why she comes back to save you and prevent that from happening.

>>514386616Balance was really the only card you wanted since all of the other ones weren't necessary for good players.It lead to AST players just fishing for the Balance every single time for speedruns and parse clears. I liked the variety but all of the tranny raiders only wanted balance so the devs gave them what they wanted: every card is balance.It's sort of a sad situation where the devs gave the players EXACTLY what they wanted and fixed a big issue that they all complained about but ended up removing a lot of the fun from the job.Basically: don't listen to trannies or else you get AST

>>514386616>Bole, Ewer, and Spire were all useless, latter two only good for RR effects.>Arrow was actually detrimental to jobs that rely on low SpS/SkS, like SMN>Spear was better on DoT jobs like BRD than on anyone else>All the cards were suboptimal compared to balance, because the balance is just a blanket damage increase that's not situational and not subject to RNGThey should've reworked the effects and just focused it around pseudo-RNG where you had to draw all 6 cards before you could get another copy of each, so you could count cards and pull off crazy shit. Instead they went the easy route and just made the cards all the same shit, but you still get fucked by RNG in your opener if you can't get 3 seals before the 6th GCD.

>>514387150>It lead to AST players just fishing for the Balance every single time for speedruns and parse clearsAnd now they literally do the same thing. parse runs are ALWAYS going to be fishing for good RNG and running into the death wall if you don't get it.>It's sort of a sad situation where the devs gave the players EXACTLY what they wanted Excpet they didn't, literally every single good AST player hates the new cards and wants the old system back with no exceptions.

>>514387409Go watch any run with an AST that isn't a parse run video, they will not throw away an arrow or spear unless they already have a balance stored and no RR.

>>514353498Watching that gif gave me anxiety

>>514387521It's basically balance having pure % damage increase that was the problem. Why the fuck SE thought that was balanced with the other cards is laughable at best.

>>514387524>>514387271Cards increase the parse of the AST, not the player receiving the card. This new system isn't perfect but it's a lot better than the previous one. All of the old effects were cool but XIV isn't a wide open game where you can have vastly differing buffs that effect the game in such a manner.

>>514387130a bad streak now is 2%. was a lot more potency lost back then. and at absolute worst you're shooting 1/2, instead of 1/6. and you get 3 redraws

>>514387524No because rankings are based on rDPS now, having a dancer tether you actually slightly lowers your parse because the crit buff's rDPS calculation is a bit fucked. The PLD thing is just a strat you use in E6S where the paladin covers a melee for the first garuda arena split, pops all their cooldowns and just eats all the damage from the AOE, cleave, and orbs that hit the melee. It ends up giving both of them more uptime and it doesn't change anything else since the PLD doesn't need those cooldowns for a while anyway.Parse runs for an individual parse are done where everyone saves all their bursts so that the kill time lines up with coming right after whoever they're padding's burst window, and then making sure that person has full uptime. Speedkills are just everyone maximising the party's DPS in whatever way possible. Both involve wiping the run if you don't get good crit/DH RNG on the opener. EG, if you're parse running with a SAM, you wipe if they don't crit their midares in the opener.

>>514387892>Cards increase the parse of the AST, not the player receiving the card. This new system isn't perfect but it's a lot better than the previous oneThat's completely irrelevant, that system is separate from the new card system entirely.>All of the old effects were cool but XIV isn't a wide open game where you can have vastly differing buffs that effect the game in such a manner.All of the old effects were useful except spire, balance was more useful than the other damage cards but only slightly and spear was more desirable in many situations, spire would be good as well if they made it a big DH buff instead of useless. Every other card either increased DPS or could save runs in prog.

>>514387578arrow is useless for 95% of the jobs. You think giving an arrow to a monk in stormblood increased their dps?

>>514356851I would but they're all too lewd and send others into screaming apoplectic fits.

>>514387637That's right user all woman are beautiful

>>514387918Yes and bad streaks never happened often enough to matter, unless you were running some full retard comp where absolutely nobody wanted an arrow.

>>514387524That doesn't do anything because the only thing that's ranked is rDPS. Getting plastered with buffs can actually fuck your ranking because RNG-boosters like DNC's Devilment are counted as an "expected" blanket increase, and if you get unlucky with crit variation, you wind up with a lower rDPS. Which is why the person you're responding to is full of shit, the only way AST gets fucked now is if they exclusively get melee cards and their only melee is a DRG -- a job that no top-end speedrun parties are taking.The correct way to top the rankings is to just not be shit at the game and optimize your rotation. The only uptime strats for this tier are things that get the whole party by, not just one person (esp now that Cover is fucking useless).

>>514345791I love our cum queen

>>514388915Not in a game as rigid as FFXIV. go ask any dps what happens when their skillspeed or spellspeed goes too fast. Clipping dots (like on drg/pld for example) and speeding your rotation up is a DPS loss. Especially if you want to stay in sync with raid buffs that were on a 60 second timer.

>>514388823It was a shit system that even in casual non parse groups made playing the job really stupid, you didn't play the cards you got and maximized their potential, you fished for one card and scrunched your face up when you didn't get it because you knew it was a waste.

>>514389116NOT MUH COOLDOWNS, THE ONLY SOURCE OF DPS IN THE GAME

>>514389116Monk here, it didn't do that at all and you're completely full of shit. The worst it did was make you throw in a filler GCD, but even then that would only happen if you'd gained a GCD from it, so it was free damage. It also increased the number of autoattacks you landed and monk autos in SB were fucking retardedly overpowered. It also lowered the amount of time you spent in fists of wind. Monk was the second best arrow target.

>>514389518That's wrong though, and only applies to shit AST players. Thanks for your input though, guy who never touched AST until it was casualized and ruined.

>>514399712you shouldn't think of the crafters and gatherers as separate jobs, when you try to level just one of them it will soon become clear that you have to level them all simultaneously to get the materials you need

>>514397465Having weekly lockouts in ultimate at release is dumb.

>>514400064So it's not like WoW's professions where each crafting profession had a complementing gathering profession that each sustained each other then

>>514399265The short answer is you'll need them all. A level 80 Axe is made by a Blacksmith using intermediate materials sourced from Blacksmith, Carpenter, Goldsmith, and Alchemist. To gather said materials, you'll need both Miner and Botanist. If you want to make armor, every patch pulls from different crafters. This one, Armorer makes five out of six right side items and intermediates are made by Weavers, Leatherworkers, and Goldsmiths, Weaver makes your helmet I think and needs stuff from itself, Goldsmith, and Leatherworker. Your accessories come from Goldsmith and Carpenter, and, you guessed it, need other crafters to source their materials.That said, if you wanted to just fiddle around with crafting, starting with Blacksmith or Armorer is fine, you'll be able to make a lot of early game gear without branching out to other professions too much. There's merit in having specifically one crafter at 80, and that's because you can farm scrips and do custom deliveries every week, netting you a low but steady income from selling items purchased with them. But to actually make stuff you'll use, you want them all, because buying intermediate materials from the market board is more expensive than buying the finished product.

>>514399265Crafted gear sucks ass, only level Culinarian, Alchemist, Carpentry if you ever buy a house, and the gatherers unless you want to go full autism and make out like a bandit on day one crafted raid gear

>>514398247It still targets whoever has the lowest HP % in the party, which is often the retarded bard who didn't second wind at 50% instead of the tank about to take a buster at 51%

>>514400741pretty much. there is materials available at NPC vendors to get you to around level 25-30 on each craft but after that you have to rely on gathering your own materials, doing crafter beast tribes, leve quests, or ishgard restoration

>>514400741Nope. You want to make anything yourself at the high levels, you'll need every single crafting and gathering profession to gather the materials, make the ingredients, then put them all together into what you want. Armor will need leather/cloth along with steel plates and some oil, weapons will need lumber and metal and maybe some rope. You want that set of armor or top-tier weapon? Get everything to 80, and you'll have to do it all together.

>>514398763I don't remember if the XI event is still going or not, and everybody and their grandmother is wearing it, but try the Amatsu set. I use it with the mengu mask from SAM's 80 artifact.

Guys I don't understand the class thingIf you roll a class can you play any class eventually? Or do you usually roll a new character if you want to play another class?

>>514402547You can play literally every class and profession on one character.

>>514401013Crafted gear is good for alt jobs since you can simply make a full set of crafted gear when a patch drops and be -20 item levels from the cap on everything. Only takes around four or so hours to gather enough materials to do so as well (Assuming ~100 materials of a single type per hour), and only a few dozen expert roulettes for the tomestone materials. It can also be upgraded to -10 item level gear once the 24 man patch drops on the same day with around a thousand basic tomestomes per job.The only time it's not useful is if you only play one or two jobs and source most of your equipment from raids or are diligent about getting your tomestone cap every week. Even then, it still makes a decent amount of gil for the first couple of weeks of release.>>514401585Yeah, this expansion, no non-culinarian needs fishing ingredients, Agedeep Aethersand not withstanding, and you can technically buy that for scrips if you don't need it in high quantities.

>>514402653So is there any reason to have alts, ever? Unless you want to play on a different datacenter?

>>514402547You can have every class on every character. Classes upgrade to jobs at 30 and is more or less mandatory. Strictly speaking you CAN continue to play a stock class but it is very much not advised. Any job past the base-game (Dark Knight, Astrologian, Machinist, etc.) also does not have a corresponding class, it is just the job.

>>514402547at level 10, you complete your starting class' quest.then you can take on any class you can if you go to that class' guild

>>514402547You can play any class on a single character. If you equip a weapon, you will automatically switch to that class if you have it unlocked and at the level you can equip the weapon. There's a feature in the character menu called gearsets that can make it easier to equip for multiple jobs.This is important, because as >>514400794said, if you want independence from the MB, the true endgame for crafting and gathering, you will need to level ALL crafters and gatherers. (Even fishers bring up stuff for goldsmith, alchemist, and culinarian to deal with.)

>>514402692Correct, no reason to use alts unless you want to have access to FCs on a different server or want to play on another data center entirely.

>>514401337I was using the legs and feet of that set for a bit with the Fuga top. I just want a kimono though.

>>514402692Many raiders create an alt because of raid lockout otherwise theres no reason to have an alt.

>>514401337It just ended sadly, I wish they'd bring over more XI sets, why the hell did they add Kirins Osode but not the rest of the set it belongs to?

>>514403042>>514403286I respect that, I roll the kimono with Gosetsu's hat or Non La a lot because I want a plainer jingasa than the artifact has. Though one of my old go-to's was Kirin's Osode, Gosetsu's hat, Nameless gloves, whatever hakama, and the feet from the Stormblood Garlean samurai set. It's easier to get an armored mage than it is to get properly o-yoroi armored samurai in this damned game.

Attached: 1582252613342.png (1118x1080, 1.92M)

>>514403940This is why I have alts. I refuse to spend a dime on the mogstation, so once I used up my two free fantasias, I just made alt characters and leveled through the story again. It has the added benefit of not being subjected to raid lockouts the same as your main, so you can raid with two different groups if you wanted to or farm two different sets of gear. It's also an extra set of custom deliveries to quickly get scrips with, and you can have more retainers to use for farming materials.One guy in my old FC had six alts and five of those had eight maxed out retainers each, since buying them on one character gets you them on all characters. They're even not mutually exclusive with each other, so if you wanted to, you could have 64 retainers farming materials at the same time and crash the market of any single material you wished. Even cheap materials sell for around 500g a piece, so 64 retainers bringing back 30 materials each every hour would make you around 1m gil/hour, assuming you could actually sell things at that price indefinitely.

>>514407851Do you still live with her?

>>514407978She's too retarded to live on her own and might literally die on the streets.

>>514407521Up to you, on your own DC you have access to your money to help your alt out.

>>514408096She's never going to get less retarded and you're never going to be happy while she's around. She can probably take care of herself if you force it on her, you gotta rectify that codependent relationship

>>514407521It depends on your thought process.If you're just meeting random people and getting to know them, doing it on a single server works fine. There's tons of people such that you're not in danger of running out. Plus, you can use your main to gear your alt, making things faster on the gear front (Not a huge deal, but it's nice).If you make characters on other datacenters and meet someone who plays IRL, you'll have the ability to immediately group with them. It's not always likely that you'll meet other XIV players in real life, but if you do and have characters on aether/primal/crystal or the EU/JP ones, it's a high likelihood that you'd have the option to group up with them. That's kind of nice to have as an option as there's been a couple of times I've wanted to play with someone on a different data center than my own and would've had to level an alt to do so.Personally in the end though, I'd rather be raking in tons of money with alts on a single server all contributing to a single bank account rather than spreading it across various data centers.

>>514411394Ninja, Samurai, Dark Knight are the stand-outs to me.

>>514411394Just DRK and healer role quest reallyDRG is neat if you do it before you've started Heavensward

>>514411739Also a lot of the lv. 80 follow-up quests are actually worth doing, even if just to get your title. All of them have relatively satisfactory follow-ups on what your job tutors have been doing while you were busy during Shadowbringers, ie Gladiator's rival/helper taking training as a Samurai to try and get an edge up on you (and immediately surrendering because he senses just how powerful you've become) for Paladin, Musosai's teachings and bouts in the bloodsands popularizing Samurai as a job, and checking up on Fordola and what's-his-face with the Garlean eye from Stormblood since they've been assigned to help with the summoner squadrons in Ul'dah for Summoner.

>>51440880721 minutes is hardly a complaint, the average with a competent group seems to be around the 16-18 minute mark, in true speedrun fashion, you might get an expert roulette such as The Grand Cosmos down to 13-14 minutes. Taking on average an extra five minutes for a post 50 dungeon is minor.During SB, I had got stuck in Sirensong Sea with a tank wearing mostly PvP gear without any stats on it. He had less health than our Red Mage, less than our Dragoon, and couldn't hold aggro. The dungeon became an exercise in the RDM holding threat and eating tankbusters because he was more likely to survive than the actual tank. The dungeon took 43 minutes to complete due to wipes because for some reason we kept getting a message about unable to kick someone since the dungeon just started.This doesn't even count the times I've seen someone go AFK for five or so minutes during a dungeon, someone randomly abandon in the middle of it, or any other stupid occurrences. There's nothing like waiting 25 minutes to get into a leveling roulette only to have your healer immediately bail and everyone else quit as well, so you're forced right back into queue.

>>514413675how long ago did you start shiva?

>>514413675It's a pretty good feeling. Last week was when we just started consistently passing it each time and the rest of the fight isn't all that complex. After three or four attempts, we're clearing adds regularly and stopped this week at clearing the colored debuffs because we were running out of time during raid night. I think there's a high chance we're going to clear it Tuesday of next week and skip our regularly scheduled Wednesday raid night. I'm actually going to be really sad once it's up. I only really see these guys during raid night, and it's the only peer social interaction I get since my coworkers are nearly all 20 years older than me. They're the recluse type of person though that doesn't play games together unless they absolutely have to, or they already all have their own social groups they play with, and everyone's stated they're quitting the game until the 24 man once we all get our Shiva weapons. I was hoping I could interest them in a different game to replace raid night, but haven't had any takers yet.
