Whats the appeal of this game after the story?
I would, but I'm on an autistic quest to hit level 60 with each class before moving on to another one. Already hit 51 so I'm close to finishing up CNJ.
I am, unfortunately.
And yes, I know about the class differentiations, but after this I'm going to max out Thaumaturge.
Don't let OCD happen to you, kids.
Why did they give a TANK the strongest ground-targeted aoe in the game?

So Dark Knights can cry, bitch and complain about Warrior still being better despite Dark Knights having stronger attacks
I know this one DRK in particular thatll constantly complain about WAR and everytime there's a hiccup in a fight he'll bring up how DRK does it better
Every. Single. Time.
>When the DPS you have to raise TWICE mid-fight against Chimera doesn't commend you
Motherfucker. At least I got the TT card I was after and this sweet-ass chestpiece.
I don't even know why I'm grinding my friend's character in Nthan to 60.
He got me to pick up this game with him even though I just then left other mmos.
Now he's almost 2 months behind me in progression and logs in irregularly.
Sucks playing alone.
>queue for lost city of amdapor for atma relic
>mfw the poor bastards that will be in my party will have no idea why they got stuck in LCoA for their high level
I know that feel.
The friend who invited me doesn't play that much anymore that I have more max level classes than him.
I have transferred to a populated server
but I'm still lonely...
but i dont want to go outside
shut up ugly
I still like weewee in vajayjay too much.
CM means I actually have to exert some effort, instead of being semi afk and watching movies.
when mine suggested me to pick up ffxiv he was having fights with his gf. I should have noticed that red flag before investing time/money into this game.
Here's your challenge today, xivg. Find an ebin and slap the shit out of them.
Sure, it's fun for the first few months when you are still in that "love each other to death" phase but afterwards you get bored of each other, you don't feel that spark anymore.
Then they get bored of you, bring unnecessary conflicts and problems in your lives, never shares their feelings with you etc.
Get a dog instead. A dog will love you till death as long as you take care of it.
Best decision of my life desu
Only grown men, trannies, cute gays that are way better than girls and fujoshis here, my man.
My friend gets bored easily and quits for like a couple of months and plays again for another month.
>doesn't Paladin have the strongest Hit/DoT with Goring Blade?
Only if you look at the potency on the skill. Fell Cleave is 500*1.2=600 because of Maim, which should have 100% uptime. Goring Blade is 540 potency, 320 of which isn't even affected by Storm's Eye. DRG's Chaos Thrust is also 600 potency total, meaning Goring isn't the strongest DoT.
i will never back down on love...
i already have a dog though she is super cute
Dogs are high maintenance.
My parents had a dog and he's cute and all, but I had to walk him, play with him, bathe him.
Meanwhile my cat just gets needy for an hour or two a day when he needs to be fed and played with, then fucked off to wherever or sleeps on the couch.
Just sit on them. Right now they serve no purpose unless you're just now hitting 60 on your first or second class, but they'll probably give them some auxiliary purpose in 3.1 and having 2000/2000 going in will probably give you a leg up.
But why don't you go outside? Do you want to die alone?
maybe a stray qt will wander into my house and i can web him then
Why not? What has love given you? What CAN it give you?
Nothing, absolutely nothing. Only pain, misery and heatbreak.
That's a qt as hell dog tho.
I enjoy them being high maintenance, but then again it's almost the only live being in my life.
Modern day sleeping beauty.
no cute robber who comes to rob you and notices you asleep in your unders with a hardon and he begins to salivate and then touches it and begins to rape you.
You could go one step further and factor in Deliverance's 5% bonus, which puts Fell Cleave up to 630 potency, and since you can only use it at 5 stacks of Abandon, that 10% extra chance to crit gives you an expected value of a touch over 660 potency.
Plus there's always that the Slashing debuff applies to all of Fell Cleave, while it doesn't apply to the DoT component of Goring Blade.
Basically Fell Cleave is pretty insanely strong for a variety of reasons.
you can't make me give in to despair, some day i will find tru wuv
wow that's pretty lewd, i was hoping for something less porno and more romance novel
"Muh stacks" meme has spread to other Jobs, help.
I am 100% certain losing Aethertrail Attunement when Aetherflow is down or > 30s CD is more of an annoyonace than losing Greased Lighthing, when you can build GL faster in that time period and have no downtime on key abilities.
>Not rolling as a healslut.
Love is a strong emotion. It gives you feelings of comfort and protection, but also pain and suffering.
Even with that, It's something a human can't really live without, even if they deny it.
>Play healer and tanks for the first time

There is no point in resisting your true thoughts. You know very well that I am right and that there will never be a prince on a white horse that will swoop down from the sky, grab you by his hand, tell you that you are his only world and take you to the stars so you both can shine together for an eternity.
It's all a lie. Something you've been conditioned to believe in. Your friends are all you need in life, nothing more.
Become a Miner they said
You'll make money they said
>mfw I believed these people

>What is an SNRI
>What is an SSRI
>What is a mood stabilizer
talk to your psychiatrist about some sort of anti psychotic or a mood stabilizer paired with an antidepressant (BPD and MDD tend to go hand in hand).
You're either playing on a DEAD server, pricing your items unrealistically, or you're too lazy/stupid to look at the marketboard and see what's selling ir check what items are needed for leve turn ins. It's not hard to make a small, steady income with gathering.
Except Aethertrail is INCREDIBLY forgiving and the only reason you should ever lose it is if you're brand new to a fight and have zero idea when down time is coming.
You certainly shouldn't be losing it in FRACTAL of all things. Holy shit.
>fallout 4 running on the same engine as skyrim
>will most likely require a bazillion mods to make it fun
>playing this on release
3.1 is better on release, you might want to wait a few months till FO4 is fun to play.
Yeah, "a variety of reasons" includes "they have to give up their bread-and-butter mitigation tool to use it".
I'm not complaining about it and I think it and Warrior in general are balanced pretty well (against DRK, anyway). The way it's set up, Warrior is capable of the best tank damage, but they have to give up almost all of their defense to do it, while Dark Knight gets almost-as-good damage, but retains almost all of their defense while they do it. It's pretty cool synergy-wise.
It's hard to imagine where they could fit Paladin into that spectrum without drastically overhauling the nature of endgame raiding, but if you ignore that, they did a pretty good job with the other two tanks.
Or, when you're doing a last pack of trash that doesn't die at a desired time and you have AF down on your last stack before a boss.
But I'm sure you know every situation that can happen in a dungeon.
>tank pops a 30+ second squat between every pull
Then you should be able to see that DPS is low and either slowly use Aetherflow so your stacks last until the boss, or use them quickly so you have time to pop Aetherflow again.
>all this talk of losing stacks
tfw your asshole clenches up as you squeeze out a Fire at the last second
Resource management is part of Dreadwyrm trance. If you can't manage something as simple as aethertrail, play something else.
You have up to 45 seconds of a grace period on dread trance / death flare. If they're going too slow, you should be able to compensate.
Get good and stop bitching about something not even remotely difficult to manage.
>Planning around 3 other people's performance with buffs that have static timers.
Next you're going to tell me that it's the players fault that they can't keep up things like BotD/GL through forced down time and random PUG elements too.
Can I get one of those cool beards?
They COULD go back to designing fights where DPS checks are just a formality and sort of a "No, you don't get to win, because you fucked up so many mechanics that you had to cast twelve raises" sort of thing. That's how SCoB was, and a lot of people still think it was the best raid tier, but the ghost of that stupid Japanese OF "team jumprope" post still pretty much set the tone for every raid tier since Savage SCoB, on top of the devs failing to realize that week-one world-firsts are PROBABLY a good thing if your raid only has four fights in it.
>it's not my fault I can't manage my resource
Let's say you're actually playing properly, and you're AOEing. That means after your dots are up, you'll be on two aethertrails. Now, if you're not retarded, you can look at what's going on and decide "Do I wait for painflare, and dreadtrance later, or should I fester so I don't risk losing aethertrail, or go into the fight with fucked up stacks".
Yes, you need to plan around what your party is doing. No, SE shouldn't take out the only half way difficult thing about SMN because you can't manage your baby mode resource.
And that's a very bad comparison because you actually CAN compensate for forced down time and not lose aethertrail.
Seriously, get good.
>What are you going to be doing first thing when 3.1 drops?
Shit, I hadn't thought of that. I'm only interested in Gold Saucer, Beast Tribes, and Relic, though. Probably get to Relic as soon as possible.
The story, of course. It's why I love XIV and why I'll keep subbing every time a new patch drops. It's my Final Fantasy fix a few times each year.
Definitely not airships. Because my FC is just myself and 2 others that sign in maybe 4 times a week.
Fucking Square being cunts and requiring 2 FC members to do Airships even if you invite other people.
I am so glad I leveled paladin, all the new skills are amazing in pvp. Royal authority is so satisfying to get kills with.
205 weapons are from THORDAN
they said the weapons from thordan will hopefully help people who are still struggling on savage
and I doubt it will be below 205 because no one is playing anything but their main in savage so they already have a 200 weapon.
They backed themselves into a really retarded corner by not making Gordian weapons i215.
Now they have to delay the relic just to keep it from devaluing the raid weapons, and the Thordan weapons are either going to have to be equal to Esoteric weapons (which will leave them at "will not help people to beat A3S+" status), or they're going to have to pull some retarded shit like making them i205 or giving them materia slots or something.
>about to get first esoteric
>torn between SCH and WHM
I like both. SCH is a little more
funbut WHM was my first 60.
Thordan wil be 210
Relic will be 220, Yoshi-P stated he will cycle the ilvl of relic to be better/worse than raid weapon from patch to patch.
Gordian/upgraded AF2 will not be buffed, for above stated reason.
>24 Rose Gold Ingot for an airship craft
>2.0 crafts never nerfed to need less than 9 mats for 2 star crafts
>Person who designed airship craft clearly had no idea how half the shit is even made
>just barely lose it because boss took too long coming out of a phase change
So if a 210 has 3 more weapon damage than a 200 wep, will the thordan one have 1 or 2 more weapon damage? Is a net gain of 8-16 weapon damage really going to push people over the top?
You think thats bad? If you calculate the stat weight of the lv 60 2* food you'll find out its worse than lv 50 ones.
Someone thought it would be a good idea to put det on them and then nerf det.
The WHM staff looks more lewd and interesting but the SCH gear is a bit prettier, IMO.
WHM AF2 gloves/boots/legs, hempen campise i think, and the weddding hat.
Yes, assuming a hypothetical i205 Thordan weapon. Groups are finding themselves unable to clear while also having the absolute maximum level of gear possible (in 3.0) prior to actually clearing A3S (that is, i200 Esoteric weapon/head/chest/legs, i210 Gordian Belt/Gloves/Boots, and i210 accessories). Giving everyone a weapon upgrade, even as slight as a 5 iLevel bump, would be a very significant increase that would push a lot of groups over the edge.
When that weapon upgrade comes in concert with Gobtwines from Void Ark (to upgrade Esoteric chest/legs to i210) and straight up i210 gear from airships, it's going to offer gearing options that simply aren't available to people who aren't already beating A3S.
Even putting the stats aside, a big part of why a lot of people aren't winning is just because it's really demoralizing to know that you have literally the best possible gear on all slots that you can bring to the fight without clearing it, and still find yourself coming up short. The knowledge that you'll be able to come back a little stronger every week will do as much to improve people's chance to clear as the actual stats will.
How about the PvP swan staff?
The body part is Female Lala exclusive, the hat is the one you get during the Eternal Bonding quest. The rest is WHM esoterics gear.
>mfw it's i200 just with better secondaries
>tfw not a single A2S drop aside from 2 Gobcoats
>Can't even use my books because I'd lose 60 accuracy and be unable to hit anything in A3S
Stat placement for MNK is fucking retarded. They didn't want you to use Gordian accessories at all.
Well, okay. My static already blew up on A3 and I am done with raiding because I didn't have any fun with it. I sort of want the loot, but it's not worth the stress of finding another group or the time committment.
Our problem was less of a dps issue and more of a communication one. No amount of gear will help when half your static, including both tanks, doesn't use mics.
tfw spilled a rum and coke over my keyboard and like 3 of the keys aren't clicky any more
>In a vulnerable part of your rotation during A4S
>Manipulator is casting Quarantine, hope that you don't get it

>No MP left whatsoever at that time, have to wait for MP to tick after a Blizzard 1
Isnt Scourge like 500 Pot?
Why are you so PALE
1 weapon damage is 10~ main stat, plus the main stat boost on the weapons' stats. So, yeah. One weapon damage is a big deal.
Is attribute gain per level affected by race? Or is it all dependent on class?
If there were an i200 Bard weapon that was Crit/Det, that alone would be just shy of a +1 Weapon Damage upgrade.
Secondaries matter just as much as they ever did. It's just that one point of a secondary is worth a lot less than one point is at level 50.
why does this game even have stats and ilvls when it's just glamour fantasy?
If you're going to have stats, at least make them more interesting than what we got and a +2 or +3 when you increase your ilvl a bit.
Dont bother spending your esoterics on a weapon.
Thats 3 weeks of esoterics on a weapon. In one week you can clear KotR EX. Minimum ilvl is just 190 and Alex Normal will be uncapped.
Can't wait for you two to eat shit in a week. You don't announce that you're releasing weapons to help more players clear Alex Savage 3/4 and make them not an upgrade to esoteric weapon.
i don't know if i want to gear up my MNK or get BLM to 60 and see if i like that more
>tfw looking forward to figuring out KotR EX
>the looking forward to learning mechanics blind with my group of friends
>tfw guide will be up 30 minutes after patch
>tfw everyone will just follow the guide
Are you trying to imply that there's something more worthwhile to spend Esoterics on?
Esoteric weapons are made redundant by Thordan weapons.
Esoteric armor is made redundant by i210 drops from exploratory missions.
The only Esoteric pieces that MIGHT not be outclassed by gear that has no weekly cap/lockout are accessories, and that's only if airships don't drop accessories, which we don't even know for sure.
The weapon is the safest buy, if only because it's going to make it easier to beat Thordan than any other Esoteric buy.
If you enjoy MNK at 50 than you will enjoy it at 60. Of all the melee dps classes MNK changes the least from 50-60.
You can upgrade the esoteric left side gear from void ark
You cant upgrade the weapon without clearing a4s.
So yeah, everything else is more worth while at this point. One right side ring and eso left side.
I thought it sucked til i saw the gauss barrel part
I hope theyre 205 or 210 so i can read off the stats to this one faggot i know and here his excuse rather than him just admitting he was wrong.
You cant put 15% on top of 500 potency in a calculator? Really?
I dare you to edit my character, fgt.
Where does "JOHN FUCKING MADDEN" come from? What does it reference?
Void Ark isn't dropping upgrade items directly. It's dropping a currency that you can use to buy those upgrade items. Which means that you can get i210 gear from airship exploration, and hoard the currency - then in 2.15 when they let you buy weapon upgrade tokens with that currency, you can upgrade all your Esoteric weapons at once..
Weapons (and maybe accessories) are the ONLY Esoteric gear with a non-zero worth as soon as 3.1 hits.
I'm not baiting anyone, stop assuming people are trolling just because they disagree with you.
MMOs always cater to new people, not to people that are already on endgame. And seriously, if you can't beat A3S/A4S, it wont be 5 ilvs that will allow you to.
But it will. Many people are still stuck on the add phase because of the DPS loss caused by running around to adjust for tethers. Or because the slime spawned in a bad area.
Killing the slimes faster means actually getting to final phase.
You're wrong and trying to assert they're going to make Thordan a low ilvl just to rile people up. 100% bait, sorry. Just a fact. Might as well claim void ark gear will be 190 and the drops are going to allow you to upgrade AN gear to i200 shit for brains.
Good thing weapons are +2/+3 now so secondaries really are worthless!
PLEASE ASK IN FC CHAT BEFORE YOU EMBARRASS YOURSELF IN PUBLIC
Reading tooltips is hard okay.
Yeah. Thats why you wanna have IR, B4B, and BL up in your opener before you press Chaos Thrust, and it's also why Battle Litany goes up as early as it does. It dramatically helps Summoners and other classes with lots of DoTs, and is why BL is considered as strong as it is. Be sure to not DoT in your opener until BL is on. It's also why you save thunder for ice phase, since Enochian will be on and you get to abuse BL for 530+ potency Fire4s.
but they are fixing that in 3.1
but still you can't have a different glamour on one job compared to another if they share the same gear.
>tfw no hair glamour like that mch girl.
Ah, you're right!
MCH: Kai (63), Hive (65), Eso (67), Eso+ (68)
BRD: Kai (63), Hive (65), Eso (67), Eso+ (68)
They both follow +2 until upgrade which is only +1, MY BAD

You're breaking my heart.
I literally got assfucked by an A rank (yes, literally, because I was running away from the fucker) that is a bigass yeti, and you want to have a go with me?
Now I can't unsee those yetis with a sad pepe or feel face in my head now. Congrats, anon.
Maybe he just wants a nice warm place to spend the night and you're just loose enough to fit the bill.
Also I was near that place around your posting time and I think I saw someone get mauled but I don't know if you're on the same server as me.
At least 15 runs into vault, 2/3rd left to 59, feels like I'm doing dungeons in a trance...
It was on Sargatanas. I didn't check the nameplate because all I saw was a yeti next to a lone yeti. I was hoping to do some non-stop casting because of Ley Lines and Enochain.
suav are u ok????
you seem a little different idk
You'll just be setting yourself up for disappointment.

Let's play a game. Zoom into a wall, others try to guess where that wall is.
