Vengeance is almost always on CD and foresight is almost completely useless.
Here's what mitigation has to do with galvanize.
Adlo on a WAR, they lose it almost immediately unless it's a crit as they have almost no way to mitigate incoming damage.
Adlo on a PLD, they keep the shield a while as a combination of their natural shield oath mitigation and having at least one CD up (like Rampart, an actually useful defensive skill) really reduces how much damage the shield is taking. The time your shield's up lets you contribute a healthy chunk of DPS.
Fuck your lore.
That outfit on the far left one is absolutely ridiculous. I bet they think it looks good too.
B-But anon, I'm like, Lv. 20.
You literally said that galvanize is better because of fucking damage mitigation.
Literally what the fuck? You use CD's on cleaves or big hits, both WAR and PLD have shit for this by that logic galvanize gets more use out of war thanks to heal potency boost.
In your post you say Adlo shields don't break ask often on Paladin because of damage mitigation skills which is true. Whats false is that you say this like WAR doesn't have mitigation skills of its own.
Vengeance = Sentinel
Inner Beast = Rampart
foresight and storms path is a bonus.
The skills having lesser duration or being slightly weaker to Paladins is completely offset by the fact thatthey have way more HP and heal potency bonus.
Not really sure if you're serious or just really hate WAR.

Holy shit, I know these people are cancer but it's moments like that which make me remember why I use party finder.
It doesn't make a difference when its not critting for neither WHM or SCH. Its just slightly more HP and slightly more shield.
The main difference comes when heals crit and the crits make a huge difference on SCH because the combined amount of double shield and the HP adloquim heals is a lot more than A cure 2 crit
Thats why it benefits SCH when healing WAR.
You forget thag Adloquim also puts up a shield and that theres a fairy that is either macro'd do adloquim and physick or healing whenever tank drops 80% hp. The shield is like an extra HP bar. Cure 2 isn't being more useful, its being equally useful until Adloquim crits.
Physick + Embrace is more than cure 2 for starters and Adloquim shield added up the heal itself is about the same as a WHM cure 2 The only dofference being those 12 points of mind WHM gets through traits that SCH gets int on instead.
well I went through my luck for the week
true that... tried to speed run AV by pulling mobs into the boss fight and everything, wiped twice on the first boss and twice on the 2nd because the healer would heal me or the ninja would start fighting... fucking retards
btw, does protect fucking up a sacc run?
Thought so, I think the healer was casting something on the rest of the party once we got into the boss room... i love this game but why do most people have to be so bad... everyone is a fucking dick but at least they wanted to do good and go fast in wow

IF YOU'RE A HEALER, PRIORITIZE HEALING AND NOT YOUR SHITTY STONE SPAM. AND AERO ALL THE ENEMIES TOO YOU CUNT. I MAD.
>how you are not hype for this yet
because after capping my first job I've turned to playing exclusively during free weekends and laughably enough, am still ahead of most people in terms of ilvl.
The game's a fucking casual joke.
I don't think you understand anon.
>People rushing into fight before the tank
>Healer spamming stone without aero and not healing any of the party, but heals himself if he gets as much as a scratch
And this is just my experience playing archer.
I'm getting so tired of healers wanting to "speed up the run" by doing dps and then dying. The gf and I down the 2nd boss from AV last night from 35% down as a WAR/BRD because the healer died trying to dps and the ninja stood on him as he did his spin attack..... for the 2nd time
Are you fucking kidding me? Theres people who still think healers don't have time to DPS?
Me and my WHM buddy were in clerics stance most of the time whenever we raided, stop being fucking bad.
It's pubs man, a buddy of mine was running paladin and had to both tank AND heal for the whole run because the white mage in our party was useless and even ended up DCing in middle of a boss fight.
You aren't getting it, I'm not the guy you're responding to but you're missing the point. No one is complaining about healers doing DPS, they're complaining they're doing dps and NOT HEALING, they're only doing a fraction of their job. It's as bad as them just standing there and following the group around, they aren't doing anything.. the tank still needs heals occasionally, depending on the boss and dungeon, regardless of il
You know, this back and forth on healers not healing and the people flipping out about how we're assuming healers shouldn't dps, you sound just like the fucking bads that make excuses for why the party wiped because you were too busying spamming stone to toss a heal once a pull
I'm not hyped because nothing they have shown gives me any indication they plan to add depth to the game. XIV is like an Olympic-sized kiddie pool. They keep making it wider and wider with new content but it never gets deeper.
That's super obvious. I'm saying we are getting a story second hand from a complainer and that needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It probably didn't even go down that way.
Eh, you run enough pubs (especially low pubs) and you'll end up seeing anything and everything.
Worst of all for me is when you tell a new player about a boss gimmick and they completely ignore it, causing issues for the party. Take the infamous slime from that low level pub for example, some people will insist on destroying the bomb, letting the slime stay big.
I'm telling you that it does, I'm not going to argue that there's whiners, but it's not cool to call him a shitter and to git gud assuming that he's wrong, when I main WAR and have to deal with this shit every fucking day.... idk maybe I jumped down your throat like you did his, I'm sorry anon
:( non-jewish companies do it...... sometimes..... :(
i guess asking that after seeing the $9.99 japanese language pack DLC that was already on the disc for Lightning returns i should have listed square as a jewish company
So I'm on my last couple of atma books, haven't pushed them too hard, mostly because the hunts are annoying. I know, my late bloomer privilege for having FATES spawn super fast makes me a bitch. but what are some speed run cheats to knocking out these dungeons coming up in the next phases, I've gotten pretty good at sacc running AV when the other party members aren't retarded, any others where this is viable?
Well at low levels you expect people to be learning, and at that point the strategy to every previous fight has been to just kill it as fast as possible. Doesn't help that the first thing to challenge that thinking is further in the game than most non-mmos last total. That low level slump doesn't last very long however, especially if you play as a tank.
I may of phrased it a lot more rude than I may of wanted. Sometimes I feel like that's the expected language around here. I just feel like if someone is having consistent problems in an inconsistent environment, the problem is probably the individual. It's super easy to just blame everything on the healer when you die since people get so focused on their "role" in the party that they begin to miss the details of how the roles interact.
>It's super easy to just blame everything on the healer when you die since people get so focused on their "role" in the party that they begin to miss the details of how the roles interact.
Well said sir, I think sometimes they also get so focused on what people yell at them for, that they forget other crucial things they should be doing, like healing, or avoiding circles or not swapping etc.
I am at 30-40 level area for my most played classes and I still see people doing stupid things that they should've knocked off doing long ago. Weirdly enough, some dungeons attract alot of shitters while others I never had issue with. Like the lv.20 mines one with doktor set items, NEVER had one bad player in those runs. Meanwhile the lv.32 dungeon run, there always seems to be one bad player.
the content has become easier and easier as time has gone on, the only exceptions being SCOB and Ramuh Ex but the follow ups were easier to keep people happy
>mfw people literally think odin trial is difficult
>mfw people have to 3 healer odin just to beat it
People can't do their jobs properly
Most of the times, OTs stay put attacking the gungnirs and never pick up odin when the MT dies during that phase
Titan is such a nightmare, this close to expansion I think they should either nerf weight of the land or stop landslide from knocking you off..... it's getting depressing helping new friends or just trying to get your own clears for shit when people can't avoid shit. I haven't stepped foot in ramuh ex because garuda, titan, and then ifrit took forever.
I did garuda in a day, titan took a whole weekend of constant running, and ifrit took over a week, I gave up for a while and joined a couple "farm" parties before getting it. Went back to help the gf get her titan clear, god it's infuriating. I know they each have their dps checks, but it feels like Garuda tests a tanks ability (namely positioning and watching spiny stacks) Titan tests dps and heals, while Ifrit tests healers. Whatever, long rant from a pissed off guy trying to get through what should be considered farm content
>Running pubs as BLM
>People always nice and polite, can play decently
>only one in real need of gitting gud is me after I learned that my job as a BLM is NOT to sleep all enemies or focus on a single target, but to aoe the shit out of everything all day long

>suddenly the tanks are made of paper and/or can't hold aggro, the melee dps will not stop taking damage and standing in orange places, the BLM has no rotation, keeps spamming fire 3 and running out of mp, and half the time people don't know how the fight goes and won't stop to ask
Nope. Done. This was the first game I played a healer in ever and I'm done. Going to level ACN to 50 to get my archmage title, but I'm staying the fuck away from SCH if it means being a healer again.
>FC leader tries to console me because he's seen so many healers break from Aurum Vale
>tfw it was Brayflox that broke me
The 30+ level range problems might have to do with people's role's changing as they unlocked advanced jobs. At that point a SCH has been almost entirely a damage dealer.
It might also have to do with certain dungeons being unlocked through quests, and not spoonfed to players through the main storyline.
>BLMs that spam fire3 as part of their rotation
GO FUCKING FUCK YOURSELF WITH A FUCKING FUCKSHOVEL
Better than most PCs. Game has a specific gamepad build many PC players use and PS4 has KBM support. You won't need a KB at first, but later on you'll want one for the harder fights.
How can people find it this bad...?
None of the dungeons were to bad on me, even when I was still using Eos in fucking sic and never used divine seal or regen on WHM.
>netcode made for Japanese internet where everyone lives right next to each other with 0 latency

>all this wrong in one fucking post

Holy shit I know you're new but stop and read your abilities for a little while.
BLM spamming fire 3 is not cost efficient.
>tfw clearing Titan EX with slight latency problem
>"theme park MMO"
>BLM spamming fire 3 is not cost efficient.
Except that's what I said. I said I've seen BLMs spam fire 3 and then run out of mp, spending a few seconds literally just standing there. That is a bad thing. That is a thing I am disagreeing with. We are both agreeing on this point being a bad thing that should not be done.
And I am not saying healing is hard, but as a healer you become way more aware of how horrible other players can be. You can see the tank not holding aggro, the DPS taking damage when they shouldn't, not doing enough damage so you're running out of mp despite ethers and shroud of saints, and YOU suffer for it. The upside is that when you berate and lecture your teammates they'll sometimes listen.
But anon, zetas have a pretty glow to them that isnt overpowering as fuck as the previous relic steps
>clearing Titan EX with constant send: 0 or receive: 0
It was a goddamn miracle I made it through that as a tank.
They only see high potency and think its instantly better
Not seeing the mp cost or cast time
But anon, Its currently BiS over everything else
Including the t13 weapon AND will set you up for something in 3.0
>Path of Exile
But anon, that game is pay 2 win

>Turns out YoshiP literally goes back on what he said
>Zeta is literally better than Dreadwyrm weapons in 100% of cases.
What the fuck. I've only got an atma weapon.
It'll only be BiS for a little while. Look for how long FCoB has been out compared to zeta weapons.
I hope this is the case anyways
I'll wait for the inevitable catchup mechanics thanks, I'm not a poopsocker who can play 16 hours a day everyday, 1 book makes me want to kill myself, the fact there are several makes me want to kill whoever came up with it.
I'm sure the relic stuff after that is less painful but I just can't be arsed with this, it's like they tried their hardest to make getting your relic up just as tedious as gatherer and crafting classes.
It's literally a theme park MMO now.
Books can take you at least one hour or less to complete one of them IF you're lucky with fates
It can take you forever if you log in, dont see the fate you need up and then log off
You'll want to increase your item level.
Don't bother doing HM dungeons for the loot. Soldiery is used to buy ilvl100 equipment and is easily gotten (doing your daily low level roulette, the story roulette and elite marks will get you mad soldiery).
As for a weapon to get I'm not too sure. I went with relic and upgraded it to Zenith before replacing it with the soldiery weapon.
Just go for the 123 each time. you lose 23 a day or so by doing that. GS has been out what, 2 weeks? and I've hit the 10k twice now... you'll more than make it up, and it's better than adding up and comparing every single columns and rows potential gains and yadda yadda, waste of time for making a net profit of maybe 1k and still losing a lot lol
Not yet on both the NA and EU store.
>WHMs, SCHs without swiftcast
>BLMs without quelling strikes
>MNKs, NINs, BRDs without blood for blood or invigorate
>PLDs without stoneskin or bloodbath
This is why I 50'd every single class! and got them to i90 at the very least each, jack of all trades, thats me.
Mind you the raised level cap and new classes will fuck my grand plan something fierce.
>MNKs, NINs, BRDs without blood for blood or invigorate
To be fair this is justified by the fact that Lancer is maybe the most godawful boring class to level. I'm not getting those skills anytime soon.
Yeah, but in 5 T13 clears I have yet to get my bow.
I'm convinced the Zeta will be quicker than the Dreadwyrm Bow.
I was under the impression that Relics were "Wellfare Weapons", weapons to keep normies and casuals relevant in more content later on. When there are literally only 2 120+ weapons aside from relic, and both are from hardcore endgame raids, you need something to make sure that casual players are relevant when new content comes out.
Instead, they hand them the LITERAL BEST WEAPON IN THE GAME, and tell the raiders to fuck off with their BIS Builds.
Even if you don't have BfB, you should have Invigorate.
That is not justifiable when you only need level 22 for invigorate. That's piss even to achieve even with the obnoxious impulse drive spam.
>Warriors without provoke
Yeah there -should- be an online code for both the Digital Collectors Edition and Digital Standard as well.
Just watching players use long duration dots on clouds is always painful.
It is indeed sad but one has to expect this especially with what they did with ilvl 115 relics. Not to mention some of the stats on the T13 weapons just make me question what the hell they were thinking.
Toadskin Jerkin and Miqo'te loincloth
Keyword -"IF"-, anon
I'm a bard main, my Dreadwyrm Weapon is Crit/Det, so I was like "Okay, even if they give us a 135 relic, it'll still be equal to my dreadwyrm one, that's okay, I'm clearing T13, I'm fine with that".
135 Zeta comes out.
Fucking 12 more crit on a Crit/Det Zeta than on a Dreadwyrm Bow. Are you shitting me.
Use your 1-2 combo then. Even if the DPS is sub-optimal, it'll keep you distracted.

I main all classes because I have ALL of them to 50, faggot.
Archer is one of the easiest and laziest classes to play, literally no excuse, I've leveled all the combat classes and all I had to do in dungeons with ARC is stand around plinking arrows at things nad occasionally refreshing my DOTs.
if any class is a pain to level it's MNK due to having to hit from certain flanks with your combos and lacking a ranged pull entirely.
Cats are the purest race
They're like vacuums
They offer themselves to dick to take away any impure thoughts, therefor cleaning the realm of lewd thoughts
>I still know people to this day who have been tanking since 2.0 beta who use provoke to "generate more threat" when they are already leading.
Try people who pull with provoke.
the coliseum gear from DD is too sexy to wear normally
Well good for you, you're autistic and actually jerk it to grinding.
>easiest and laziest
It's fucking BORING.
I'm not playing a video game to get bored.
Oh, my apologies. I thought the poster meant it belong to culinary but I misread.
And yeah, Tricks is down right awesome for 4 star shit.
Voke pulling isn't as offensive to me but it does make me shake my head.
The only reason I can justify it is when one is chain pulling and wants to pull between a GCD.
>everyone dresses up their women like sluts

>think my tank sucks because he wants to be MT but keeps losing aggro right when the fight starts
>turns out one of the other tanks keeps using provoke for no reason.
Try some of the lower level gear. I like some of the doublets if you can find a matching base color pants to go with it.
Get some gear from Syrcus tower. Get soldiery gear and upgrade it. Get access to World of Darkness (3rd ct) and get a weekly item while saving up poetics/upgrade items from the weekly quest. also >>285740095
Oh right, I forgot it has quite a bit of range too. Can only really display that in like AK normal on the succubi but yeah.
>the summer gown

will check this out though, thanks
This is the oasis top from gold saucer.
>tfw the tank is so good I barely have to do shit as a healer
this is what every run should be like
By the way, started playing ACN. What am I supposed to do in a party? I figured I'd just drop all my dots on every enemy individually so they all take damage, and refresh for every dot that runs out. Damage-wise this seems ok, but the tanks seem to have problems holding aggro on all the enemies they're not focusing on. Are they shit tanks or am I being a nuisance? I don't think focusing on one enemy is useful, since I can only apply dots once and ruin does pretty much nothing.
When other tanks do that I just spam my BB combo until I have hate again
I don't enjoy cucking Paladins but sometimes they deserve it
Anon, lalas are for cute, not for wanting to commit crimes
WoD isnt hard. But you will find some special people in there like in CT/ST.
I always thought lala's are for petting.
Now people keep petting my character.
Thought about getting that oasis top but that fucking hip scarf ruins it
Yeah that's the only thing I dislike about it. The other 2 outfits are pretty nice as well though.
Sounds like a solid choice for my archanist. My other one has a bit of a tomboy look, and I have all tank jobs leveled, but I don't really like the coliseum tank gear. Any ideas?
All I want is a normal shirt without it being tacked on with shit like scarves or bags

I've gone 0/6 on literally every dungeon except Wanderer's Palace.
>11% Droprate (There's an argument for 25%).
I'm starting to think every player has a different RNG seed that changes the droprate for each item.
You always have people mentioning how they got x dungeon on one try but y dungeon took over 20 runs for them.
>Mfw SMN will never get the buffs it deserves because anything they tweak will make SCH even more OP
Fuck you nerdy faggots
Didn't smn and sch get a buff to mp cost on ruin/ruin 2?
That's why there's an argument for 25%. There's some math stuff on Reddit to read, but specifically, the average should be around 7-10 dungeon runs for each.
This means that sometimes, you'll get a 1/1, and others you'll get a 20/1. It's the same type of RNG that fucks people over on Gathering with 80% Chance to gather and they miss all 4 attempts, but then that one crafter who gets an HQ 1%.
Man I wish dragoon was a bit more like the FFTactics ones... I mean, a fucking knight encased in full plate and tough as fuck. In fft dragoons were the reliable class which could hold their ground against 3 foes at the same time, I tried them a bit and it was rogue 2.0. Disapointing. Truly disapointing.
Seriously? When did they change Ruin/Ruin II to be free unless I'm oblivious to some smn trait.
>there are people in this thread who are literally posting in this thread instead of being gambling addicts in Gold Saucer
>1 million mgp for that fenrir mount

It's not impossible, I did the dungeons atmas 4 times and everytime I spent eons on WP but got 1/1 in the same dungeons (the only exception being Haukke HM, I once had to do it twice).
Even dungeons get old eventually.
I made my first character on Phoenix EU, because apparently it's the second most populated server after Balmung.
Is it really? Did I make a mistake? Does server selection matter a lot?
I fucking hate being in constant doubt whether I've made the right choice.
Is the dungeon finder cross-server at least?
That buff was mostly for SMN yeah as SCH doesn't even need to worry about running out of MP.
But yeah it's hard to buff SMN without buffing SCH unless they start doing job based traits.
