I'm not even going to get into my disgust of the patch notes. I'm sure everyone in FC is probably tired of hearing it. So I have other happy news.



Rank 10 Attacker Choco - I officially have nothing else to level, period. /dies
LOL, we spent  most of the morning on vent trying to reason out WTH Square-Enix was thinking with some of these decisions. IT WAS FUTILE!

Seriously, what the holy flying Fuck is wrong with SQ-Enix? The land / housing prices are insane. This just blasted open the game to RMT with freaking TNT. Legacy servers have  it even worse.....sheer madness.

I'll do CT, don't get me wrong. I am just really disappointed in almost all the changes they did to it. Most of them to artificially stretch getting loot out of it as long possible, in a most likely brain dead easy item level 55 instance. Cause if it isn't THAT easy the DF thing will probably kill the interest in CT faster then the loot lock out.

Re: how hard is it to gather crystals
It's like every other mat where you get per press of X, it's mindblowing they made shard gathering so annoying. Imagine if RMT weren't around to bot the crap out of them, they'd be even more expensive.
There are ways to increase your crystal yields but not by much, those stacks of 1000 shards you've been buying would take hours to farm up yourself even if you went to the best spit for it (the dye areas).

So CT's getting a lockout of 1 item per week. "That's really stupid" was my reaction. Yoshi actually said people should rotate content...in a game that has almost purely vertical progression. I honestly have no idea what they're thinking other than "artificially lengthen content as much as possible", which will probably just serve to frustrate people.
its a piss poor way to mask the fact the game has very little end game progressive content. CT   was going to be the way people gear up alts and run things with fc members you rarely get to do anything with. I don't mind a loot lockout if it was sensible, but a week is freaking ridiculous.  I went from excited  about crystal tower to meh. Can't run it as fc or alliance raid,  can't farm for alts. As it stands it would actually be easier/better to gear an alt with myth gear which is higher item level then CT then actually do CT for alts, maybe use CT for accessories but that is just about it. That is if you are geared enough on your main to have that luxury. 18 weeks of stretching content is what they hoping for, which is when 2.2 if they are on time (lol) will probably be out.
edit: Square Enix said 2.2 would be released in 3 months . I added 1 month and a half as the Square Enix tax.

All hail StumbleButt! My KFC is full grown and ready to be BBQed.


Wait, you're Arrowny? Aren't you in my Roleplay LS? That's awesome! (And congrats! I keep forgetting to summon my chocobo when I'm farming for mats =_=)
Yep. I don't RP much, but I usually end up on RpPvP servers or things related. Phoenix Throne-Warhammer, Lumiel- Aion, Sunrest-Rift, Basilisk Crag -Tera.

I actually only just got to Turn 4, and I can definitely see how it'd be useful in there. Bard's my only 50 class as well and personally I would take a DPS nerf over a mobility nerf because I'd rather the classes stay unique and that's supposed to be Bard's strength. Well, preferably it would be neither given that 10% melee boost, but whatever, they're overreacting to cries of jobs being overpowered like every other modern MMO.

Yikes, grats on the rank 10 chocobo. I remember when my chocobo was Rank 2 and I thought the game was glitched or something because the bar moved so slowly, then I realized that was by design. I got my chocobo to rank 4 for some free cures in case I need it, but past that I didn't bother. I'd level my chocobo a lot more if they fixed all the gripes I have with the companion system (you can't queue and they eat your drops are the two biggest issues for me).
That bar just doesn't move.....soul crushing doesn't even describe it. I Lucked out and found a choco party grinding spot in south shroud to grind out 75% of rank9. Two groups pulling everything around the clock and it still takes forever to get any real progress done.

Finished Relic #6. It's starting to feel like Groundhog's Day. Been enjoying crafting some of the 2 star stuff and finding that some of it is actually better than Allagan with the right melds. I'm considering starting an alt so I can help with an earlier EST Coil team. Yeah I probably need my head examined.  2.1 cannot come soon enough.

Wow, 6 relics, easy-mode enabled. Pretty sad to see how this game has turned. If they are making it this easy they are going to have to start pumping out new content ever month.
You want hard mode get a chocobo to rank 10. That damn thing is straight up aion 1.0 grind.
this in spritbonding rank 4-8 not counting the 2s and white elemental crap

My FC's backs must be  hurting from carrying my SCH through titan tonight =).

Dude. I'm not complaining. We were talking about how people have requirements for endgame stuff and I was making an observation (the Revenants Toll shout group) . That's it. I don't join shout/yell groups, so no, I don't actually care all that much what other people are doing for their farming runs.

But at least it's two dungeons and not one! I hear WP used to drop 50 philosophy and no myth before the recent big patch. And I didn't do so hot in AK against the demon wall, so um I don't want to farm that dungeon yet.

I'm going to see how Titan goes with my friends, honestly. I still have AF, but got really lucky against Garuda HM and never died (took bunches of damage though), I still expect Titan to be way difficult no matter what my gear is. Maybe I'll luck out, beat it and get a spear of crags, but that's asking a lot. Worse comes to worst , I grind for darklight stuff.
that wasn't directed at you. There are people that will straight up send you hate tells or provoke you in chat/tells for forming relic groups, or cry about it.
45  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: November 03, 2013, 05:18:44 PM
+1ing the relic depends on the class. DRG gets a decent bit out of it because its +2 DMG and crit rating. Bard on the other hand gets a lot less out of it because Artemis Bow +1 only gives +1 DMG and the secondary stat on it is Skill Speed of all things.

And yes, if somebody's doing Wanderer's Palace with only relics it's probably because they're trying to cut down on their runtimes, and I really see no problem with what they're doing. I'm all for helping new players with the game but I'm not going to be doing it every time I run the dungeon especially if I'm bothering to shout for it. You can partially blame SE for giving the playerbase a grand total of 2 dungeons to spamran for points but regardless of how many dungeons there are people will always do this because they want to save time. Being picky in the DF is unreasonable (although they're adding more options to help with that, but this is yet another stupid addition because all the trolls will checkbox speedruns to grief instead, new players will checkbox speedruns out of desperation etc) but why would you complain about people setting their own requirements for what their members are wearing if they're bothering to form a custom group?
This, so this. Another thing its usually only the geared people going through  the effort to recruit for groups. You rarely see the people who are not as geared shouting for no req or normal runs. The problem would not be as bad If people took the effort to form their own groups. It is not hard, and does not take much time managing. I have formed relic only and no requirement groups, and they fill up almost just as fast. Usually the hold up is A tank. Instead people bitch and complain in shout instead of forming their own group.
