>trying to learn how to MNK in content outside of WoD
playing melee is so WEIRD
Good morning, /xivg/. What do you plan on getting done over the weekend?
Finished babby's first WoD and the Chrysalis last night. Still much to be done to catch up.
I just can't take that picture seriously.
i have issues specifically with GL stacks, i can keep my rotation going
just weird to to mechanics so close do the boss i guess.
t13 solo tanks
>well trained JP teams uses a PLD with 10.2k HP and tank lb3 for akh morns and clears in 13 minutes
>hastily put together US team uses a STR warrior with 9.6k HP and gets the kill in 11 minutes with no tank lb for akh morns. Warrior drops defiance occasionally
Eat your hearts out, PLD fags.
I know you got a toaster, hotshot. Get an external GPU if you can't fit a PCI-E in a toaster
Been trying to finish a Zeta as fast as I can so I can spend the rest of my pre-expac time
I don't even have new pics of my glamour, but soon!
Yeah, it is, but I mostly just RP with my freinds anyway.
Just take a loan and then do dumb youtube videos to earn money
Relic weapon questions:
>Do you need to have your Nexus equipped when running the required dungeons, to get the specific items to drop?
>If I am working on my Zodiac, and running dungeons for items, can I attain more than one of the same item from the same dungeon (to build other weapons)?
No, you can run the dungeon on any class. Generally if the game wants you to collect items, you can do it on any Job you want, since you are just collecting them, since they are part of repeatable quests that can be done at any time.
Since the dungeon items are Key Items, they probably don't stack.
What?! This cat isn't brown OR a titty monster! This isn't right at all!
A whole bunch of skills are coming between 51~60.
No, you don't get them every 5 levels.
Everyone will need to re-work their rotations.
There isn't enough space on the current HB/XHBs for all those actions. They have a plan.
POE-cap isn't being raised/removed because IL130 is a little high in the early stages of Ishgarde. (previous off record interviews mentioned that they'll be relevant up to l55)
next 24man raids coming in 3.1.
FC primal summoning has been delegated to 'some time later'.
Add-ons on back burner because 3.0 took priority. (they added too much stuff)
No plans to show TP.
New jobs aren't getting ZWs.
New ZW-like quests starting in 3.1. A bit of work has been put into the story.
New jobs will have primal weapons.
Summoner has been heavily reworked. Something something tri-disaster.
Expansion of armoury chest to come later.
Number of retainers going up. 4 maybe?
New housing wards comes after Ishgard.
Choco rank caps going up.
You need HW to be an Aura. No other conditions.
New roadmap planned for Wolves Den and other PVP.
A training mode for raids may come. Eventually.
Thinking of adjusting Steps.
New GS attractions start from 3.1
No plans for DX12
Ishgard is split into 2 levels. Peasants below, nobles above.
Lower levels is filled with ruins from dragon invasions
Mostly stone buildings.
Upper level has many religious structures.
'Twelve Knights'. Remember those words.
That statue at the back on the last row, that has a really incredible back story. (src. Koji)
For a very long while, Esoterics(法典) was actually going to be called Aesthetics (美学).
Really, really out west.
Dragons live here.
Koji worked very hard to create Dragonspeak language.
6 years ago.
The new Gunas tribe live here.
Downstream from the mountains so lots of water features.
Has not been invaded by Dragons.
Lots of old archaeological thingies.
There's a deserted Sharlayan city. Kinda like old Constantinople. Big scholary city.
But it feels Greek.
They used tarot cards to predict the future.
Dravanian Cloud Sea
West of Ishgard, above the Highlands.
For some reason there are ruins up there. Important part of the story.
The Seven Celestial Dragons are a large part of the story.
The snake like thing in the middle is Midgardsom. The rest are his children, the 7.
Please look forward to how they get involved.
Aura are not related to Dragons. Their motif are demons.
Abarasia Cloud sea
East of Ishgard.
Huge elevation changes. Flying mounts are necessary here.
Vanu Vanu tribe live here.
While working on the settings, I become well versed in genetic manipulation & bioengineering → Koji
Yshtola's name appears.
Aura naming rules coming end May.
Anyone wanna do final coil aether queues?
>No plans to show TP.
>New housing wards comes after Ishgard.
Coerthas housing and not Mist/Goblet/Lavender 9&10 PLEASE
>Choco rank caps going up.
>Thinking of adjusting Steps.
Just fucking do something about people not reading the chat. Add an unskippable cutscene or something that shows off the cannons, snares, and dragon killer.
Q:You've mentioned that Alexander Normal is for people to relax and enjoy the story, does that mean they'll be cleared within a day or two?
Y: /em nods.
Q. Was Hard mode made with WoW's Mythic raids in mind?
Y: We're actually calling them Heroic internally.
Q.Does that mean there'll be something even harder?
Y: Depends on the players' clear rates and requests.
Q. So Alexander was made with player clear rates in mind?
Y: Yup. Looking at the number of player clears, we also have something called Content Costs where we basically want our content to be enjoyable by more people.
Q. How many levels?
Q. Will there be higher IL requirements and more gimmicks as we go up?
Y: Yes. We designed it with what players considered fun between all 3 coils.
Q. How hard is Alexander Hard?
Y: About as hard as FCOB Savage ← ?!?!?!
Q: Will the Fat Chocobo fly?
>Aura are not related to Dragons. Their motif are demons.
HOW DO YOU FUCK UP SO BAD? It's like 3.0 is being made by an entirely different team.
>Machinist doesn't use Limsa's gunner class that's existed since who fucking knows
>Au Ra aren't the one thing they hinted at with Shiva and instead something they never once hinted at
You collect the 4 dungeon items, the ones you had to buy with gil/seals/tomes, and the crafted items, and complete the quest.
You can then instantly retake the quest for another Book/Alex/Scroll/Whatever since those items go in your inventory. Thus you can do the dungeon grind with the light grind of your next weapon.

So, I could
>start zodiac progress on WAR
>head to MD
>start one of the books
>(let's say it requires items from WPHard, Amdapor, HaliHard, and AK)
>actually run those DNGs as NIN
>turn those 4 items in (with the rest of the stuff)
>get that item reward
>accept that same book quest again
>run WPHard, Amdapor, HaliHard, and AK (again: working towards a diff job, but running as NIN, just because)
You need to run the said dungeons as the class you got the books for
My friend went to AK for her blm, but instead went as a healer and it didn't count so now she has to do it as a blm again
Yes, take a guess:
>Everyone will need to re-work their rotations.
So. New to the game. Just finished my job Quest. What now. Balmung, by the way.
What exact time of day does the subscription timer count as a 'new day?' Like I assumed it was at midnight or something but I couldn't guess the time zone
I want to resub but I'm so much of a poor pleb I don't want to waste even a few hours of my game time, so I want to resub immediately after rollover
Now you come learn how to play DRG.
>Shield Lob combos
Or they could just place Riot at the forefront. Riot was initially a starter in 1.0, along with Fast.
>Riot Blade - Rage of Halone
>Fast Blade - Flat Blade
>Fast Blade - Savage Blade - Goring Blade
Think about it, you do Shield Lob then the full combo, with the first hit of the combo being the weakest.
Now Shield Lob can work as an optional first part of the combo when pulling or gaining aggro on a new enemy.
I don't quite get how I answered something we don't know until 3.0 is out. But thanks for the meaningful reply.
There should be a guide in the OP in terms of progression. You should probably look into getting your relic started, just to get a good weapon. Once you have enough poetics, just get the ilvl120 one. Definitely learn your rotation if you want to get anywhere.
Probably on daily resets, which is 8am PST (PDT?)... Idk, the current time.
>Rage of (insert god name here)
>Reduces target's INT by 5%
Yes or no?
You have much to learn, but it is a good start. You must stand at such a point where people begin to question how you got to such a place, and you must stand there for hours upon hours on end. This is best done when going to sleep.
Just make the monk the better one and not overwrite-able. Just like stoneskin. It will make progression better since it won't force groups to have to rely on
the piece of shit class that is known asmonk as much. :^)
Perhaps, but I refuse to think they gave them a DoT. Its not what PLDs are, for me at least. They are more utility than anything. Just look at the benchmark, they have a bubble shield now (which I assume can maybe cover the party as well).
Not right now anon, men are talking about the game. Come back in a few days once everything becomes stale and everyone is talking about their Aura waifus.
>Summoner has been heavily reworked. Something something tri-disaster.
Hype tenfolded right there.
Also man Au Ra girls are looking really cute but all the guys they've shown off all look way too edgy.
don't let it get to you. there are decent people on balmung, they don't generally post on xivg. egg and stepdancecat barely post here and they're surprisingly normal. talk to people who don't post here and you're fine.
>light farmers failing levi hm
just ban everyone here, nothing of value would be lost
I think I saw some kind of Flare that took longer to cast than normal, too.
not tripping the converter in time
the WAR survived with 200 hp
Could we please not bully mnks.
What is there for me on Balmung?
But then I'm just another brick in the wall.
>Tri-disaster gets buffed.
>They get a new kit.
>Summoner becomes top DPS.
>Summoners become the most looked DPS job for statics.
>Everything else gets BTFO.
That doesn't look that bad.
DOES ANYBODY WANT TO PLAY LEAGO LEGENS WITH A GOLD SHITTER ON EUW
Have you guys seen this?
>tri-disaster gets buffed
>spell speed for dots
>dot potency and times "adjusted" to compensate
>everything is weaker
>dont even get a fourth aetherflow
Yeah, pretty funny.
>Lyvia kicking Yda against her head against the magitek
Surely we'll get a fourth aetherflow, right?
>"The implementation of 2D fighting content is not planned"
Poke her to see if you can awake her.
Are you saying you want to wield my Excalibur?
Oh, i might have missed it then...It would be cool if it was real
i dont even know
i've been playing top a lot recently but i play whatever
but fuck adc i cant play it for shit
People kept telling me that I look like an NPC from the Ninja quests.
Complete accident, but I'm happy about it
Stop beating around the bush already.
why not :0 im pretty good for a gold player
Screw YOU I am not changing this crap again.
She's one of the cutest NPCs so it's okay.
>not glorious Smite
i miss you SMNC ;___;
>yfw PLD's new combo gives it a stronger Storm's Path that only reduces the damage inflicted to the PLD
>yfw WARs become utterly shit, redundant and worthless
>yfw W A R R I O R S on suicide watch
>Hopelessness and an S-rank
It kind of bothers me how the whites don't match too but there's nothing I can do about it. ;_; Guess I should glamour over the demon gloves though.
I see, I wasn't aware I had never played NIN.
My sincere apologies.
the only real issue with league of legends is riot
like they straight up dont know wtf they r doing
i mean i guess there's the MUH TEAMS MUH LUCK BASED FEEDER NOOPS DA ELO HELL but only retards say that
apart from when i went on like a 5 billion loss streak that shit was fucking ridiculous idk wtf was going on
tfw sub finally ran out
See you in Heavensward
idk actually lol
I didn't play since S2 where I was like 1650 elo back then and then came back in S5 and had no idea what was going on with the meta or what was good and got placed into like Silver III and managed to come back to barely Gold V
And now I kinda havent played again since hitting Gold like a month ago
I honestly think games like that aren't fun at all when you're playing on your own, you really need a full team to enjoy yourself and most of the time still isn't worth it. I stick to fighting games.
Great, now I'm even HUGER. Shame you can't glamour the Herklaedi and only the individual pieces. Just like you can use Heavy Dorklight armour for glamour...
I just started this game.
Dose anybody have a link to a complete beginner guide playthrough?
I am having trouble questing, navigating certain areas and npcs. Is it possible to set a waypoint marker? I just don't properly understand how to navigate the world and complete the low level quests!
>game is so stale that i've level 3 classes in under a month, something i used to hate
hnng 3.0 when
>tanks should share utility skills
No. The combo effect can be anything at all and "composition" is an afterthought. Doubling up is moronic unless it's handled by another role (NIN, for example).
Paladin gets an offensive (bleed) and defensive (strength) effect.
Warrior gets an offensive (slash) and defensive (damage) effect.
Dark knight gets an offensive (magic?) and defensive (accuracy?) effect.
Poke her more, in different places, to see if you can wake her now.
yeah but that doesnt happen every game
more often than not if you get into a carry mentality you can carry most of your games
if you don't, which admittedly i don't, even if you perform well, you'll lose a lot more
elo hell doesn't exist period, it was a joke u retard
smite? more like shit lol ha
this is the gayest meta
>smite tp toplane turbo tanks muh cinderhulk
literally the worst
team play and soloq are different though
like team play you do all sorts of stupid shit because your whole team complies, shit like the support going and fucking the jungler up at gromp or doing 1v2 lanes / top following the jungler around for exp and gold
in soloq its completely different
the simple difference between soloq and team play is soloq enables mechanics, team play enables efficiency
When am I supposed to use presence of mind?
>Shame you can't glamour the Herklaedi and only the individual pieces
You can. The Odin trial drops identical looking gear but it's split into pieces so you can glamour it on.
Yeah it's a pain finding NPCs during quests.
I'm pretty sure you know this already but in the quest list, click the blue text under a quest's name to open the map marked at the exact location where the quest continues.
meme teams in normals aren't fun any more, stomping retards gets boring
in ranked 5s we did some retarded shit but in ranked 5s u can get matched with 4000000 diamond 1 50lp players picking lcs champions because they are gaylords
its either that or people who are almost beginner bots tier bad
the fun i get in soloq is playing the champs i wanna play whilst also shitting on people, my mechanics are above average for sure i just don't win games all the time because i don't "carry"
Oh yeah, I know you can glamour the individual pieces but nobody farms Odin Trial anymore.
I should've been clearer though, since the split pieces all have the prefix "Dark Divinity" I'm pretty sure.
Also, I've not really found much of an application for Presence of Mind outside of DPSing, to be honest. Maybe pop it alongside Divine Seal during massive chain pulls in dungeons so you can throw out Cure IIs faster and guarantee no tank death?
for sick dps
the fc on ultros is still alive and pretty active
you should consider coming back to catch up a bit, expansion is coming out in 2 months
saucer has some okish minigames
i love this hair so fucking much. i can't wait for au'ra.
soon cats will be old and busted
If they keep making new jobs with the intent of making every party composition equally viable for every encounter they'll dig their own grave even more than they already did.
I want to see them doing this once people will demand at least three new jobs in the next expansion and in the following one.
I can't wait to see the babbies crying because SAM is just a reskinned PLD and so on. The same people who beg for a perfect balancement at the cost of fun and interesting gameplay will regret it and whine.
yea but in the screenshots posted they look fucking stupid
but they r probs just trash at making characters
see how they look when people who arent garbage make one
Singularity soon. Are you ready?
I just took a screenshot of the ninjutsu going off, just one try.
This one's first try too. It looks a lot better IMO.
I just like to take screenshots of things to post places, crop and uses as avatars, or look back over in a year to nostalgia over.
You're contributing nothing. Fuck off or say what you find actually wrong with what people are saying.
Fact is that if you've played one specific genre of game for a long time, you could think up a functioning class pretty easily.
Vjera isn't the only person thinking about what the new abilities might be.
Keep your aspergers in check for a minute, or filter their image's naming convention if they bother you so much.
I don't even know what exactly is wrong with what vjera's posting anyway
I can't wait to make one like this, but with the new twinbraids hairstyle.
You're being a bitch for just theorycrafting talk. If you talk about personal experiences with the game, it's a blog. If you talk about ERP and internet relationships and how cute people's characters are, its a-ok. If you want to talk about shit, then talk about it instead of bitching about what other people want to talk about like that loser who just pops into a conversation to say nothing worthwhile.
It's me, hi.
My suncat on Cerberus.
This monday, they released the video of the benchmark already though, shows some cool stuff.
>drag self through MSQ
>someone keeps emoting at thancred probs taking selfies
>seen same person doing this all week
why do people have shit taste
I feel like everyone's going to be using that hair.
The haircut in the picture?
Twinbraids for life, now I need to hope they work with WHM AF2 or AST AF. Or at least that the new gear has some cuteness added instead of slutgear 3.0
Just because it was on a lala in those screenshots doesn't mean it's an exclusive.
Very neat, but this further backs my belief that the devs REALLY hate female elezens. Livia deserves better.
>mfw see picture of someone I play with for the first time
>she looks like her character
>Caring about looking different and not looking aesthetically pleasing to your own eyes
So why don't you play elezen or roe then?
I was mildly interested, only because Gria similarities at that, but those pictures definitely upped it for me.
At least one other person in my FC is desiring the benchmark now when he wasn't really before.
Okay, have fun with your ugly facepaints and weird colours I guess. In a game with such limited character creation is not bad. Perhaps if the customization was better I would agree with you.
does my cat look like my chemical romance was his favorite band before black parade came out yet
>Caring about looking different and not looking aesthetically pleasing to your own eyes
See, this is totally okay unless "looking aesthetically pleasing" coincides with "looking like the two-gil slut that hangs out in The Hyaline".
Which - interestingly enough - wraps back around to the earlier point about genericism.
>"looking like the two-gil slut that hangs out in The Hyaline"
Aka 95% of people playing a female character.
I think I'm the only person who aims for actual cute vs funny or lewd sometimes.
I was tempted to do this if Au Ra didn't come out well.
Mor Dhona in every server? Those two specifically are on Hyperion.
Or maybe you can learn to work with it and not make them look like dykes?
I can't really get with any of the red eyes, but this is actually the darkest lipstick you can have on a male
this games sexism is getting in the way of my inner hot topic clerk
>All these cute cat bois being posted
>tfw no tummy to cummy on
If I see this cat one more fucking time.
>forgot to log out last night
I'm not a slut
Oops youre right, I'll be going now
>thancred will never hold my hand and call me cute
>I will never play with his hair as he falls asleep and tell him everything is ok
there is nothing wrong with liking hime cuts you fucking racist
Now they can have a Japanese like name that's lore appropriate and a hime cut.
I wanted to try FF XIV for the first time but I saw that Kupo Corps is on Moogle Server.
And I can't create a character on Moogle Server, it's full.
Is there a way to get refer by one of you so I can join the server?
>light farmers since bonus
>wipe to the last boss due to SCH SMN and BLM not having enough aoe to knock away all the bombs????
>smn waits 30 seconds to raise the dead sch
>bombs spawn during adds due to low dps
>it happens again
fuck it, i'm out. i've NEVER seen a tpk in brayflox ever.
I am worried they're going to be too short for my tastes, but I am still very excited to see what I can work with for Au Ra. Their eyes can be so pretty, I want to see what I can do with my usual purple-eye scheme.
Funny enough I can pretty easily adjust my character's backstory to be that Au Ra is her "true form", but will have to wait and see if I like it enough. It'd be hard to part from giraffe life.
That hairstyle is actually really close to my hairstyle irl
Guess I know what I'm doing with my alt once the xpac comes out
My personal wish would be for the female maximum height to be taller than highlander hyur, but shorter than Elezen. But that seems a bit unlikely, sadly.
Wonder how many Raidens we'll see running around.
I know they're not going to have a class base, but it'd just be really weird if they didn't have cross-class Aetherflow, and certain other tanking skills.
I's how the system works/has worked, unless they want to rework it.
Also, what healer? I plan on being an expansion babby and maining DRK/AST I'm assuming just start levelling both WHT and SCH right?
>Tank puts on all str accs
>Heals says they are not comfortable with it
Why are so many tanks like this?
>implying PLD won't be the superior off tank still with their new riot blade combo while DRK main tanks with even better deeps than warrior
It'll probably be an int down (magic break) debuff making monk replaceable for fights like 13 when Teraflare killed you with shit gear.
uuhh god I hope not.
I hope the new jobs are their own classes with their own tools just baked into the class.
The cross-class system is dickcheese. Maybe if they made the skills act different depending on which job theyre used with, but as is it's a worthless relic system from when the game was shitty.
Because theyre bitchfaggots who have a tiny bit of power in their lives, so they overflex it whenever they can.
To be fair a large portion of hairstyles on every race look retarded on that race unless you create a very specific character around that hairstyle.
Au Ra are a bit overboard still but you know what I mean.
I assume that DRK is going to have a way to restore its mana pool via sacrificing health or defense, but it'd be nice if you could cross-class a less risky (if less effective) means of mana recovery.
And while it is a relic system, it's a relic system that works fairly well, which they have no reason to change.
Really wish the scales looked better than what they've shown so far.
>works fairly well
>levelling DRG to 34 even if you don't intend to play it if you want to play melee is fine
No, absolutely not.
The crossclass system could be retooled to a quasi-talent systemi f the abilities were changed to function slightly differently depending on the job that uses them.
>PLDs think adding one more combo will magically make the class fun
It's still going to be the same shit, except you do Halone > new combo > Halone. Come back when you've got proper mechanics like Wrath.
Where do you get those glasses? I think they'd suit me really well.
How do i fix this (emphasis on the color difference between the head and body)? I never had this problem when i played the 14-day trial and used the ARR Benchmark.
