NEVER LET A ROOKIE DO A PROS JOB
never let a pro do a pro's job either apparently
xth for accepting bf/gf applications
New to this game and queing up for First coiil is dead and all I ever see is Third/Final on PF. The fuck do I do? I want to at least play them through so I can unlock minstrel's ballad so I can do the new one when it gets released but it seems like an impossible dream now.
>10 fewer Esoterics per Neverreap / FC run
I didn't see anything about the daily bonus being increased. If it isn't, it means you'll have to run Expert every single day, or fill the gap with a pointless Neverreap / FC / Alex run.
Someone please tell me I missed something.
You don't need to do coil to unlock Ultima's Bane.
You also wont need to do Ultima's Bane to get into the new Minstrel's.
If you still want to do Coil, set up a PF thing yourself or gather your friends and go for it.
>tfw every time you try to make friends with someone Abe is miraculously there to jump in and steal them away
>they always lose interest and get obsessed with Abe
>Abe jumps to the next person and leaves them desolate and they no longer want to be friend with anyone
Really, fuck you Abe.
>tfw haven't experienced this
>only thing abe and i did was chit chat and he gave me 50k gil
Yep, that was me. And thanks, i really appreciate it.
i log in on an alt like every 2 days and talk to them what
arent you the lizard or am i misremember
Kinda new player here, how the fuck do you guys level up a second (or beyond) class? Are you telling me I have to grind the same leves over and over and over again or hope for a FATE train to come along so I can farm the same boring FATEs for about 8 hours to go from lvl 42-45? Can't deal with this shit man, even the grind in shit like Skyforge or Tera goes faster.
Also are they good looking outfits for a male Roe SMN? I got kinda tired of my WAR because tanking in this game is a really unthankful job.
Will come in handy for PvP.
Can anyone explain LoVM? I still find it confusing even after reading patch notes.
Please don't bully me, this emote makes me really sad...
lies and slander
>sounds like batman
this meme needs to go
Dungeons if you're not leveling a DPS job.
Podcasts and audiobooks if I'm grinding FATEs. The big FATE grinding areas all have PF groups up at reasonable times in non-dead servers.
Leveling alts takes significantly less effort because of the experience bonus you get for playing a class that's lower level than your highest.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, is to only level alt jobs you actually give a shit about, and to not rush it so you don't get burned out.
Stop whining you big baby.
what the heck i dont eat rocks
i had a shitty broken mic for a while my voice is nice...
oh maybe i can pretend... for you..
>Are you terrified
a little bit i get really nervous on voip and end up talking really quietly..

youre gonna need better bait than that kid
They will definately be better than 200 since Yoshi stated that these weapons would hopefully help people who were still stuck on A3/A4/
If 200 then it's not really going to help as people have their Eso ones.
It really wouldn't bother me if it were i210, but i205 is much more likely. I also think that Gordian should be bumped up to i215 (along with the relic in 3.15) and the Gobdips should be moved down to A3S, though.
I apparently cant get Monks down, if its an AoE I need to get out of to fuck with my rotation, its an ADD tank/casting enemy targeting someone else that fucks up my positional damage. Here is what I do as a monk:
Dragon Kick>Twin Snakes>Demolish>Bootshine>Truestrike>Snap Punch>BS>TS>SP and repeat. I tend to pop Blood for Blood after Demolish, and Internal Release after Bootshine
Is my rotation fucked up, or should I just say fuck it and consider Ninja or Dragoon?
I don't really like au ra that much but this one was pretty cute.
It always works that way. Older dungeons give lower Capped-Tomestone rewards once they're shuffled out of the Expert Roulette, and the new Expert Roulette dungeons give as many Capped-Tomestones as the old ones used to.
It's not going to matter because you'll be getting your Esoterics from airships anyway.
All they have to do is make the BRD/MCH Thordan weapons i205 with Crit/Det secondaries (Crit being the high stat), and they'll be noticeable half-step upgrades between i200 and i210.
>xiv players so used to taking it in the ass they can't fathom thordan weps being 210
>will never imagine a world where they aren't gazing up at A4S raiders cocks even in a catch-up patch.
>Tanking in dps stance
Leviathan didn't come until 2.2 when T5 was unlocked. 2.1 had i90 weapons that came from Primal Focus, but they bumped Gordian weapons up to i95 so they'd still have an advantage.
There's a very real possibility that they'd do that again, and make Gordian weapons i215 in 3.1 so that they'll still be desirable even when i210 weapons are commonplace. But I think the Thordan weapons will still not be higher than i205. They're probably reluctant to even do that and wanted to make them i200, but pretty much everything about this patch is about shoveling gear at people to help mitigate some of the damage that Savage Alexander did to the level of interest in raiding.
I've been told before that i'm pretty intimidating. I'm actually a pretty big softie though.
They were definitely around in 2.5/2.55, or maybe even late 2.4, but yeah anyone who thinks that there were main tanks during progression phases that were decked out in full STR is doing some pretty heavy revising of the game's history in their head.
Prior to Alexander, STR was for the off-tanks (if you weren't just solo-tanking) and for once you had the fights on a really comfortable farm. Otherwise, it was Fending or melded the whole time.
>Nothing to look forward to accomplishing
if the first implementation of savage back in coil is any indication, no one actually wants a challenge, they just want loot. if the ilvls weren't there so many statics wouldn't have tried and failed against A3S.
>Tank dealing 900dps instead of 500
>Somehow imagines this is better than the 1k+ the healer could be doing but can't because they have to keep the tank's squishy ass alive
That's a stupid comparison. Savage Coil was a failure not because it didn't have stronger loot, but because it shared a lockout with regular Second Coil.
There are a lot more people who are willing to take on a challenge that has no material reward than there are people who are willing to take on a challenge that could easily interfere with rewards that they're already getting elsewhere.
If you're a softie why have you stalked, harassed, and solicited ERP from people who continually told you you're a creepy degenerate who needs to fuck off?
If you're a softie, why did you steal a tomestone out of spite from a 'friend'?
You use a facade to get on peoples good side and get what you want. You're a manipulative whore.
You realize it's
kinda dumband practiced in overwhelming numbers by normies who have no idea what they are doingand are imitating with no fucking idea what they are doingbecause fags keep telling them to switch to strbefore they l2tank

People just want loot and not a challenge
Don't expect future savage modes to be anything but titles.
my man ive been playing with tanks in str shit since bcob with the exception of T4/T5 maintank
you have no idea what youre talking about
it just wasn't popularized until later when the lucrezia hype train blew up
>solicited ERP from people who continually told you you're a creepy degenerate who needs to fuck off?
can confirm this happened to me

Welcome to the mind of every single ERPing degenerate that acts cutesy in MMO generals.
haha ebic many upcoats :DDDD
Stay classy anon.
It's not true.
the ones they see as a "challenge" to get to erp are much more desirable
its every mentally fucked erpers dream to despoil the ones who dont and convert them
scarcity (in a sense) increases demand
but it is true harp, how many times did i tell you no again?
thank you im pretty good at yugioh hmu on YGOPRO
Can you stop living in the thread? Every time I stop by you're here. You shit all over an entire thread. You're worse than every single avatarshitter combined. At least get a trip or something.
I heard it was a DPS loss if that is what you wanted to know.
I was just ironically trying to erp you... As a joke..

ERPer here, I mean it's fun to take someone's first time and all, but honestly the whole "despoiling and converting them" thing is pretty fuckin sickening. If they wanna do it, great, if they don't, don't push.
I honestly don't get it. A subreddit can only be as good as the game itself is. Why the fuck are people surprised when its nothing but fluff after a four month content drought? What do they want people to talk about?
This game is so shallow. Rotations were figured out the week of HW release. Stat weights not much long after. Strategies are set in stone. Even the fucking dedicated podcast has so little to talk about they have to whine about reddit every show.
not like im gonna make that many friends anyway...

I'm talking about that with one person right now
With normal sks you reapply GB with 1 second left on it and I fucking hate math so I don't want to do it myself
I assume it's a dps loss but I still need some proof
Oh, I figured mentally fucked just applied to all erpers. My mistake.
Just not my thing I guess. I don't want to feel like I'm holding someone's hand through the whole thing.
>bismarck extreme with randoms
>can't even break his back without 25% echo
there's a bigger variance in the wincons and strategies different decks use
for example you have item lock, graveyard power, recursion, and some big combos
if you want to play anything relevant in ygo its just speedy xyz/contact/pendulum with the patrick hobin approved set of traps
didn't tp usage actually go up for plds...? since shield swipe spam was actually good for mitigating tp usage before, and now it's an ogcd ability with a massive cooldown...most times you weren't spamming shield bash anyways...
>farmed all ravana weps and cleared bismarck/helped clear too via PF on a "ded" aether server before alex even came out
how did you guys even have problems?
>people actually regularly cleared Garuda/Titan/Ifrit EX in the DF
>addition of new EX primals into the DF delayed by one patch after their introduction
I don't get why they made the change. Clearing primals on alts is a pain since by the time the primals get added into the DF, everyone with any sort of competency would have cleared it by then.
>Your raid group was shit.
Sorry that I was actually raiding while the content was relevant, I guess?
I'm not talking about like one STR ring, or melded STR/VIT, or anything.
The main tank for the world-first T9 clear had 574 VIT, which is consistent with being almost full-VIT at slightly over i90. The main tank for the world-first T13 clear had 682 VIT, which is full Fending at i110.
Maybe you, personally, were in a group that waltzed into Coil on day one with full-STR tanks, but you would have been very lonely in doing so and it definitely wasn't the best way to make progress.
>tfw static wants to do stuff on the 10th
>tfw just wanna play FO4
Yes, Off-Tank Paladins will now last slightly longer (and by slightly I mean "maybe 30 seconds longer or so) before running dry on TP, and Main-Tank Paladins will actually run out of TP faster than they did before.
The damage boost is well worth the removal of the game's most questionable form of TP management, though.
who needs heals for pvp when you can just fell cleave and pain flare everything
Would it make you feel better if I said that nobody good or relevant did it, and that while it was technically possible to do progression that way it was inefficient and ineffective compared to tanks who stacked defense or tanks who balanced their offense and defense?
>Baldung shitters giving a fuck about cheesing A4S
>The tradable version of the following dyes has been added: Pure White Dye / Jet Black Dye / Metallic Silver Dye / Metallic Gold Dye / Pastel Pink Dye / Pastel Green Dye / Pastel Blue Dye / Pastel Purple Dye / Metallic Red Dye / Metallic Green Dye / Metallic Blue Dye

>Dyes obtained before 3.1 remain untradable
Previously it was 190 TP a cycle for all combos. Now Goring costs 10 TP less, 180 TP, so the expense:
>3.0 Goring: 25.333 TP/s
>3.1 Goring: 24 TP/s
If we consider an off-tank rotation of GB-RA-RA it would total 570/560.
>3.0: 25.333 TP/s
>3.1: 24.889 TP/s
TP regen is only 20/s. Divide the difference against your total TP (1000) to find a zero point:
>3.0: 187.5s (3:07.5)
>3.1: 204.5s (3:24.5)
why wont 7 people wait for me to view my cutscenes? I just wanna have fun guise.
not even a nin.
do you know the pain of having anything that requires a server side check taking most of a second? having to wait for your form to change while on a monk, activating berserk taking a full gcd, bloodletter basically being on the gcd, benediction and hallowed taking 2+ seconds to activate, heals constantly late on targets due to ping + animation delay. having to constantly be moving for any aoe phase where markers are on a 1s timer for damage, needing to make your own macro timers to let you know when pancakes are coming on titan so you can move before they appear, aoe markers in general appearing for less than they do for others, being almost unable to pick up adds before people have a full gcd of damage more than you on them.
it's a special kind of suffering I would only wish on the most degenerate of players.
Sorry, it's not moving the goalposts if I expect you to realize that "People didn't really do this during progression" meant "People who were actually successful during progression didn't do this".
Like there's probably some stupid motherfucker out there who took that weird "Paladins with DEX for more blocks/parries" thing from early 2.4 and decided to try running FCoB with actual Aiming accessories, but I'm pretty comfortable saying "Nobody was doing FCoB progression with a main tank in DEX gear" because that's how irrelevant it is.
>21k exp from fates
>35k from fates over 50k exp from fates once you reach the level range of the fates
Why are there so many fucking idiots in the game? Why waste time grinding in the processing plant when you could be getting over half the amount of exp per fate in Azyz Lla.
in another game I played there was this alternate tank strat for a boss where instead of swaps one tank would use speed boosts to kite one of the bosses and negate the stack mechanic, but most groups tried it once, realised it wasnt worth the effort or risk since even one fuckup and it was a wipe, and it literally required one tank to be god tier amazing. no-one cleared with it, and the only reason it still exists in common knowledge is people used it to carry dead weight tanks in that fight when they were doing it 5 levels above tier.
saying that because you did a special snowflake thing, doesn't mean it was correct or the norm. it's even worse if you act as though you were better just because your own ego is getting in the way.
We're fully aware of the situation where we're short on male outfits and discussing with the dev. team. For now, I just wanted to give you all a heads up, and let you know that we're adding not only Minfilia's outfit, but outfits for the following members of Scion at the same time:
So hang tight, and keep those great suggestions coming!

It will probably be unisex too.

>I can already smell the stench of those messages in neet fc chat - "hey /b/ros, let's line up and shit the thread together xD"
I find it funny that anybody thinks this actually happens in any FC, linkshell, or voip.

It has been done before.

>he doesn't know Shield Swipe had a multiplier
Everything would have been fine if DRKs INT debuff actually reduced Blunt resistance as well, and maybe some of DRKs damage dealt Blunt damage, like Low Blow.
Then it would actually be able to synergize with MNK by giving them full Bootshine duty, but fucking nope.
Three shield swipes = 630 potency. This gives you 630 potency of aggro
Standard combo 150 + 200 + 260 =610 potency and 610 aggro generation
We just lost out on more damage and more aggro
>material quality: excellent
>great strides up
>steady hand not up
>use standard touch
>80% chance to succeed
>it actually succeeds
I shouldn't be so surprised at this, yet I am. This crafting system made me way too pessimistic.
>maybe some of DRKs damage dealt Blunt damage
whoa now....thats a little too complex for this game.
I think it would be too strong if they could bootshine every time. You'd probably have another pre 2.45 DRG scenario where everyone wants to take MNK/NIN or double MNK. MNK at least now still does excellent DPS, regardless if their main utility is now covered by DRK or not.
OF COURSE IT HAS THE SAME BASE MULTIPLIER IF YOU'RE IN SHIELD OATH YOU FUCKING RETARD
AGGRO COMBO HAS IT'S OWN FUCKING MULTIPLIER INDEPENDENT OF SHIELD OATH
If Mudras cut any less into your GCD, it's going to end up providing more damage.
I already didn't really have an issue with Mudra lag though, so I wonder if it'll be any better.
Where did I say it was a DPS loss in ARR? I said it was a shit use of a cooldown, because you're wasting a 180s cooldown to gain <7 potency per GCD. It wasn't even necessarily an enmity gain over 5 skills used from the Halone combo, because those 5 could be Savage > Halone > Fast > Savage > Halone, which is 800 more enmity than 5x Shield Swipe. Bulwark + Shield Swipe has always been shit.
>be in fate group

Post YFW you don't play on Gilgamesh or Balmung
just 2 hrs ago I got a DRK that macroed a bunch of edgy lines to his skills
one of the lines was "Your soul is mine!" for Sole Survivor
was a bit unsettling to the the meme in action
but the new thing is the combo+shield swipe whenever it is off cooldown since it is ogcd now
That single shield swipe every 15 seconds is more than the difference between 3 swipes and a combo
Not to mention you can now use it in times where otherwise you wouldnt have the oppurtunity to
3.0 mentions Shield Swipe is adjusted
Tooltip now reads:
Delivers an attack with a potency of 210.
Can only be used immediately after blocking an attack.
Additional Effect: Pacification
Additional Effect: Increased enmity <--- this part
