>>523516994>queuing for alliance as tankJust do it as dps, that roulette gives shit exp anyway.

>>523515884BLM is the hardest job imo. Spend a whole tier in any class and you'll probably get used to it.Monk is a bit of a pain to optimize, I heard similar things about Samurai but I haven't tried it yet. Ninja can be hard depending on the fight because you have to cram as many abilities as you can in your TA window, and if the fight requires you to do a lot of shit during that it might be tough, but the class is pretty easy to understand.Ultimates aren't easy. UCOB/UWU right now can take two-three weeks being persistent with pugs. TEA with a decent group can be done in a month or two.

>>523518698I meant to say aren't hard* and to clarify, all classes are easy granted you spend some time learning the ins and outs of the classes.People who play badly even after multiple tiers on the same class just don't care enough or is being completely stubborn in regards to habits and analyzing their own gameplay

>>523523508You'd have known from the start if you were looking, you had the Echo before ever getting the first crystal.

>>523523793Yeah but Hydaelyn was talking to me from the very first

>>523523856She talks to everyone with the Echo, but you only get the Blessing after first getting a crystal.The Echo in fact has nothing to do with Hydaelyn.

>>523523920>The Echo in fact has nothing to do with Hydaelyn.I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just saying this isn't really how the game has portrayed it, at least up to the point of the story I am.

>>523523991If I remember right the Echo and Blessing being different is more or less explained by the end of ARR, basically you still getting Echo visions after losing the Blessing isn't an incongruity, it's how it works.The Echo not being related to Hydaelyn is only explained like three expansions later though.

>>523524314I hadn't gotten any echo scenes doing the main story quests after the whole Midgardsormr thing happened so I had assumed that when it happened doing the crystal tower shit I'd just done some shit out of order. After all, presumably some of these quests were in the game before others because of how MMOs work.

>>523523991That is exactly how the game portrayed it.

>>523524475>hydaelyn talks to you in the very first seconds of the game>later you find out you can see people's pasts>then you meet a girl who can also do this, and she also apparently talks to hydaelynMaybe I'm dumb, or maybe your knowledge of shit from later expansions is giving you 20/20 hindsight.

>>523524712Everyone with the Echo has heard Hydaelyn, that doesn't equal the Blessing.

>>523524804Ok, sure. But forgive me for drawing a connection between hearing her voice and having access to the Echo.Since the dragon severed the Blessing I've yet to talk to Hydaelyn, so I had assumed that meant all other benefits that I thought I had were gone

>>523524897>But forgive me for drawing a connection between hearing her voice and having access to the Echo.There is a correlation, but not a causation.>Since the dragon severed the Blessing I've yet to talk to Hydaelyn, so I had assumed that meant all other benefits that I thought I had were goneRemember that when you started the game, you had the Echo and heard Hydaelyn before ever getting a crystal.Also her not saying anything to you has more to do with her being half-dead than you losing the Blessing.

>>523529583You should probably do the Coils before actually starting Heavensward though.

>>523529893I've already cleared all extremes, savages, and ultimates so I want something new to do. Plus it allows extra flex and preps me for doing ultimates on blue next expansion to get that coveted Blue Legend title they have in the works.

>>523529910The what?

>>523501343>leaving your reddit and porn tab open Embarrassing, XIV players have no self awareness

>>523530074The Binding Coil of Bahamut. Starts with the blue quests from Urianger at the Waking Sands.Though I guess for the point you're at it makes no sense to actually do if you've already started the long cutscenes for the feast.

I stopped caring about people flexing their ultimate titles and parses once I learned people buy 99% parses and kills all the time. There is even one loudmouth in my server who acts elitist and calls PvE easy while he literally buys every PvE fight in existence. He even was busted in Twitter and still defended himself with a "proof" video that actually only confirmed the boosting lmao

>>523530317I don't remember seeing that chain with him. Unless it only appeared recently, haven't been back to the Waking Sands since I needed to do all three hard mode primals

>>523530452It unlocks after doing the three hard mode primal quests.It's also the actual ending to ARR.

>>523530410Also adding that XIV got the equivalent of DBM now that just literally tells you what to do it kinda makes the fights alot easier

>>523530656Alright cool, I'll go do them after all this feast shit is over

>>523530725It won't make any sense to do after the feast, if the Echo bothered you this will drive you nuts.

>>523530768Man I'm used to MMOs. I know all about things happening out of order

>>523530656>It's also the actual ending to ARR.No, the coils are not the actual ending of ARR. They're a continuation of something from 1.0 and not connected to ARR beyond a single mention from alisaie during the story of HW. A single line. The actual ending of ARR is quite literally the 2.0 storyline, with everything else being a new story and/or the build up to HW.

>>523530837Are you already in the cutscenes?

>>523530893Yeah. Teledji is throwing around accusations like it's christmas

>>523530889>They're a continuation of something from 1.0Bahamut, Dalamud, Louisoix, and the twins are all pretty important. I mean finishing Coils literally gives you the other half to the opening cinematic of the game.

>>523536249It's a fantasy game with magic. It makes sense to tackle real world issues. Expecially in a setting where gender expression can easily be done with magic items or glamour magic. Like having an Alchemist quest where you brew an experimental fantasia which gender swaps a character, with the other quests being about them coming to terms and enjoying their new sexuality. And considering how sprouting SE is of the lgbt community it'd be nice to see more representation in game anyways.

>>523536905This is a good troll post. People, take note.

>>523531117I find this funny. I played ff14 from back in 1.0 till a little bit after heavensward launched. By the least few months I was subbed I was only interested in fishing, crafting, playing cards and decorated my FC house. I dropped from the raid ground and didnt touch combat for weeks. It was actually the most fun I had with the game. The Comcast gradually lost all appeal to me with the launch of ARR. Strictly vertical loot progression and mindless combat rotations wore thin. I had every class at 50, combat. crafter,and gatherer so It wasnt because I was playing a boring job. My favorites were WAR, MNK, and WHM.

>>523536676Unsynch is where you can take people of any level and trivialize it. PF is the party finder, NOT the duty finder, where you just make/search for a group from a list of other people doing the same. If you try to just queue for it in the DF you'll never find a group, it's not in any roulette. When you write a description, note that you'll be watchibg cutscenes and you have a furst-time poetics bonus.

>>523540425They practically don't change at all after 50 with the exception of GL4, and GL fucks them on every fight so hard SE has been playing damage control on it for like six years.

>>523540425MNK has a long history of being shit. They were fine in 2.0 but then NIN was released which stole their gimmick of being the fast DPS. In 3.0 they gave them more damage and no real support abilities so they became the high damage selfish dps similar to BLM. In 4.0 SAM was released and stole that gimmick from MNK. Their basic combo structure is really solid and feels good to play, but Greased Lightning is by far the worst buff in the game to keep up. 40% of their damage and 20% of their attack speed comes from Greased Lightning and half the fights in the game make it impossible to keep up. When it falls off it takes 12 GCDs to get back. Also at any given time a significant chunk of their buttons are worthless. Right now they have 5 abilities which you'll literally never press, you don't even need them on your hotbar.

>>523523583>Fantasia FeeYou get one free ingame. And honestly why would you ever need one? You can just make the character you want when you first start playing. Only reason I see is if you want to play an expansion race after you stop being a trial player and purchase the full game.Speaking of trial players can they make Au Ras as well now that heavensward is inculded in the trial?

>>523545792quit playing then

>>523503145Energy Drain for ScholarNot the skill itself, just the fact aetherflow is tied to potential DPS gain. I'd rather energy drain just have its own charge / CD

>>523545792You can play until the end of heavensward for free man. If you don't like this shit just stop playing. MMOs are an acquired taste if you don't like it it's not for you.

>>523542946Man you're right. I saw someone in my FC wearing it. She basically never logs in but logged in the day that was out.And boy they were big tiddies.

>>523546328That's one of the best things about it retard. The fact that you have to choose between healing or more dps is one of the few remaining things that makes healing not a snooze fest.Heck they already removed ED once and nobody liked it so they put it back.

>>523545782lmao read a fucking book if you want story, anime are for children.

>>523546835it was bad they removed it because they didnt put anything in its place and you were left spamming biolysis nonstopI objectively think energy drain using aether is just dumb since it just encourages you to heal less which is bad design

>>523547314What are you doing on a children's website in a thread about a children's game then?Yeah fuck off to wow if you just want to skip all cutscenes while you wack off to your hrt meter getting high numbers.

>>523533875There is Main Tank MT and Off Tank OT. The MT has boss aggro most of the time and is responsible for positioning the boss properly for mechanics as well. The OT is a glorified DPS that only does things other than dealing damage when specific mechanics take place the OT has to take care of. You should play both, it's not as complex as you might think and it will avoid gay situations where both tanks in the party only did OT for example. Provoke is used to perform a tank swap (or when both tanks died to get aggro quickly else a DPS gets the auto attacks). Tank busters usually (not always) apply a debuff on the initial target like physical vulnerability up. This means that as soon as the tank buster is over, a single auto attack will kill that tank in one hit. What you want to do is when the boss is casting the tank buster, you want to provoke during the cast and the other tank ideally shirks you to ensure you will have aggro afterwards. From then on you'd have to tank it, if you take a tank buster then you'd have to wait for them to use provoke (check enmity list) and then shirk them to swap again. As long as you explain you're new to raiding, no one can really flame you for fucking up so don't be too worried.

>>523549675>also hiding your name means jackshit because you can go to anyones fflogs who cleared both fights to do thisThat's exactly what the guy in OP's pic related did. It should have been obvious he was full of shit the moment you saw the tabs you newshit.

>>523549414So as soon as the Boss starts casting a tank buster, I (if I'm OT) cast provoke, while it's in mid cast?Also I'm assuming it's a blaring and obvious yes, but should I study the wiki for boss mechanics pre raid, so I understand everything, or just go balls deep and learn first hand.One more thing, does the game automatically label MT and OT, or is that just something both tanks decide when they get in the party?I think I'm gonna focus on being a MT. I aint no bitch.Also thanks a fuckton for the info user. You answered more than I could have asked for! Thank you!

>unironically thinking mmo raids are hard

>>523552026Every fight that's not labeled as (Extreme) or (Savage) can easily be completed blind, don't worry too much about looking stuff up beforehand as everything is telegraphed fairly wellAnd yeah when they are casting the tankbuster, provoke during the cast and the tankbuster will hit the first tank and then the boss will switch onto you. This is generally only necessary for things which apply a debuff to the first tank, and is rare outside of higher end contentWhoever main tanks is pretty much just decided by who has their tank stance on, who pulls first, and who is doing the most damage

>>523552026yes, to tank swap you use Provoke during the tankbuster cooldown so the next auto attack hits you instead of the other tankas for mechanics, there's very few actual tank mechanics. you've probably seen them all by level 60The game does not label MT and OT, typically the better geared tank will be MT. Some fights don't use the OT at all, some have a shit ton of stuff for them, and sometimes they even switch often enough that MT and OT don't really applyalso, Dark Knight is the beefiest tank. good choice

>>523552026>focus on being a MTHell yeah, going from MT -> OT is WAY easier than going OT -> MT so you'll save yourself a lot of troubleFor studying mechanics beforehand, it depends what you want to do. Even now there are lobbies that are "practice from start" where you don't really have to know a lot beforehand to just get into the fight, but if you want to progress faster, it's helpful to know mechanics beforehand. It's usually a blend of both, sure you can try to memorize mechanics by heart, but knowing them and then playing and applying it makes you remember them a lot easier + getting used to your rotation for that specific fight (like do I want to hold this damage buff here, should I pop a cooldown there, that kind of small stuff that comes along as you do a fight more often).

>>523555627yes? look at any drk/war log and the war consistently heals 100% more than the drk lol

>>523556289And self healing is WAY less useful in raids than giving yourself or others a fuckhuge healthbar every half minuteChrist why am I even trying to argue you said fucking GNB was better at tanking damage

>>523556537name one (1) attack in this game that requires a shield

>>523556289>healsWhoopdie-fucking-do. I like WAR, and the self-healing is nice, but it still doesn't compare to TBN turning tankbusters into literal jokes, especially when you factor in its interaction with defensive cooldowns as opposed to just stacking % modifiers.

>>523555210To be fair that one is kinda bullshit. It's the only one in the game where you have to delibertly let the gauge fall close to the end because only when it's nearly empty do you get a massive boost in gauge gain when you press a button. Trying to do it normally is just wasted effort unless you have a turbo controller or something.

>>523559210You can't grind better gear and stats, there's a limit. It mostly comes down to finding 7 like-minded individuals with whom you're going to spend weeks/months doing the same fight over and over again until you clear or until someone snaps and the static disbands. It gets easier when everyone knows how to play their class so DPS checks aren't as tough as they could be.

>>523559210By the time an ultimate releases, everyone making a serious attempt at it already should have the best gear available from the previous raid tier, there is no grinding possible to beat it and is pretty much pure mechanical difficultyHere's a clear of the first ultimate they
