In other news, while we may be a bit behind the curve, Solaris cleared Bahamut's Coil Turn 1. Caduceus hits like a truck, but that fight is all about clearing the stacks before the split. ADS Mark II seems much easier, just need more attempts. Honestly I'm kind of disappointed in this uber dungeon. Aside from the blatant gear checks it doesn't hold a candle to how raiding used to be in WoW:TBC before the nerf bats. I'm looking at you Vashj! Of course my opinion may change by the time we get to the Gauntlet or Twintania. Enjoying it so far outside of the bullshit one hit kills :p
How'd you do the fight, if I may ask? I've been in a few successful turn 1s and 2s, and people seem to have lameass strategies which drive me nuts til I make obvious comments and suggestions and we win a round or 2 later.

I've been playing since release, as a tank and therefore have to deal with the majority of AoE and forseeable and thus avoidable attacks and with the occasional "me not paying enough attention to move out of the way" laziness, I have never experienced bad lag in game, though I've eaten a lag spike a couple times during dungeon runs which is more my issue than others. I've also played at all times of the day, so idk, but I'm thinking it's less SE's fault than most of the fingers pointing at them would have you believe. I can't always blame stupidity for getting hit by landslides (I'll try though, last time I ate one was 2 weeks ago on ultros and I didn't fly out), but when you eat bombs, it's entirely your own fault. I also may be bitter in regards to titan, since I haven't killed him again in over a week because I get stuck as OT and end up outdpsing the useless drg and mnk that inevitably join, and watch as the pld either loses hate due to sucking, eats a gamma wave/table flip/mountain buster anx doesn't have a cooldown prepped,or doesn't actually evade the bombs or even worse, runs titan around bombs while getting everyone killed. When I offer (respecced for str btw) with 6870ish hp, I get denied because it's too hard to heal me. People suck, they should go play fucking super mario or something and learn to play video games again.

As a blacksmith, it's weird to think I can make a spear that high since at level 32 I haven't made any at all, but good to know. :D TIME TO GRIND FOR TOMESTONES.

Obelisk isn't worth it. None of the crafted weapons are worth it unfortunately. Ifrit and Garuda are incredibly easy to farm for weapons. Save your tomes for your Relic and Darklight as a DRG. If you need Primals slain for your relic quest just let me know. We 5 manned Titan HM last week for 3 people.
You're a veteran 1.0 player with every class at 50, and probably equivalent friends that did it. Duty finder is full of people who suck.


Your triumph is noteworthy, but lacking because you have yet to beat a df titan. It is impossible.

On a less sarcastic and joke-worthy note, yeah 5 manned titan is pretty good, but to be honest as long as your dps can break gaols before shit hits the fan post heart, you can rape titan with ease,he's fairly easy. Which, in turn, makes me rage at HOW FUCKING AWFUL PEOPLE ARE when it comes to dodging his attacks. Seriously....

Oh man, I have no idea how to acquire an obelisk without paying for it.

I've also unlocked Ifrit hard mode, I really want to do that and all the fun(?) tomestone grinding.
Obelisk is a blacksmith item, needs a bunch of items including a darksteel ingot which requires 9 cokes. You get those off of the tomestone traders for 125 philosophy tomestones each.

So I helped a buddy out by getting the pieces together for an obelisk for him, which is a 600,000 gil i70 spear. Since I obtained the parts and had a friend make if,it cost a lot less and she even HQ'd it for me (she's awesome btw). I hook my pal up with it,and sure as fucking dogshit smelling bad, we do a garuda hardmode and the first win drops the lance. Thankfully I obtained it, but the hilarity was still abundant as the cost was pretty huge and honestly, once we drop titan he's gonna have 9 ak's til a gae bolg anyway, but at least it's different. Just find it all hysterical.

Having dealt with that set of photos first hand when my mom died of cancer a few years back, I can safely say that though I dislike the end result to it, more people should be exposed to the darker sides of cancer. It might trigger a bigger outcry to do something more serious about it. Tv and stories do little to show how much cancer can change a person's entire life physically, but this photo collection showed it pretty bluntly. I'm sorry she didn't make it honestly, and even more sad to know she left behind a man that loved her, but it's a good show with a great shock factor. I appreciate you for bringing it her yodes.
1372  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Crazy Eel House music video! on: October 21, 2013, 04:19:07 PM
Yes.

And that's not really our normal musical style, kind of a joke tune. We go in all different directions. All fiddle based, but that's about as close as it gets.
Well it's definitely a good video. Also interesting to see you at work, definitely a telented musician.

Also....your drummer's kinda hot, but I see what you mean about the meh playstyle she emanates. She looks less like she wants to drum and more like she wants to just model in front of the drums. No soul, no vitality, just there. But yeah, she's kinda cute though, lol.
1373  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: October 21, 2013, 04:13:56 PM
This made me laugh.


Musta tried tanking titan on Hard Mode as a war...before and after.
1374  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Crazy Eel House music video! on: October 21, 2013, 08:50:29 AM
Question, was that drummer playing the one you had mentioned in the other topic?

Comments, I liked it, the video was entertaining though I am personally not a fan of the style of music. Cool stuff dude.

What are those things?! Why do they look so cute yet angry? Why isn't this pile of beady eyed rodents a pokémon?!

They're hyraxes. Not rodents. Actually related to elephants. Which probably explains something. Possibly everything.

Also there's already an SMT monster based on them:


That's DEFINITELY from castlevania, not SMT.

This is the smt variation.

All I have to say is

PPPPPPPPLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
(that's generally accepted as the noise associated with the fart sound you make byvsticking your tongue out and blowing)

Gaming's a recreational activity, same as sports and tv. I can understand you not wanting to know about maybe Tales of Xillia's ending, but if you're that concerned about not knowing, say, Tales of Phantasia's plot and such, well maybe you should have found some time during the last 20 or so years to play it. And no, you're not too busy to not play it, you simply have priorities to other games. Meaning, these older games aren't in your main area of concern and as such, it isn't fair to the rest of us who played these games already as they were a priority to us (remakes included) and now we want to discuss them openly. 1 or 2 people shouldn't get precedence over numerous others. Youthful gamer crap be damned,I find time to go and play earthbound and secret of mana every couple of years, what's your excuse for that? We all have our rl issues, don't use that as an excuse cuz it's not fair. 2 years after release, you shouldn't be forced to spoiler tag information anymore outside of maybe an ending or a snape kills dumbledore-type moment. Obviously I'll respect whatever management has to say about it, but I still place my opinion pertaining to it here.

In regards to the list, I am mad BoF III didn't make it here.
1377  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's Top 20 PSP Games on: October 18, 2013, 02:11:18 PM
I'm glad TO was in the top 5.  That is one of the games that defined what we currently know as the SRPG genre, and the port is even better.  It also went with some truly morbid shit with the new content, such as Ozma getting beaten until she is comatose if you don't save her.

I was pretty happy with the list too, though I really don't agree with P3P being 1. Really, though, the PSP has so many good RPGs it's pretty crazy.  I can think of at least 5 more excellent games and 10 good-decent ones.

Who were those idiots that said the PSP has no games?
Oh cmon.. Be careful with that kind of information. There are people who havent played the game yet. It doesnt seem to be a big spoiler but still, :D
In all fairness, the game's been available for a couple years now and for what, 15 on ps1? If you haven't played it yet,it doesn't seem like you have much drive to get at it and shouldn't get antsy about minor spoilers for a minor character that only happens if you don't play the game well. I think there should be a permissable length of time for spoilers to be acceptable,and that oughta be anything past 2 years.

I'd like to know what some of the "guy" questions were for the ladies. Sports stuff? Because I wouldn't be able to answer that crap. Then again, I didn't know the 2 you mentioned above either. So where does that put me? Hmm.
Tomara, there's no way a game called "Battle of the Sexes" is NOT going to be sexist. It sucks, but that's the point of the game. I'd like to think our world is getting beyond some of that stuff, though. Baby steps, I guess.
A couple of the questions I read were car related; but mostly sports related; which I also have a serious lack of knowledge in. Best ones I can read off were:

Which of these doesn't fit.
Timberwolves
bobcats
lynx
thunder

Answer was lynx because that's the only one that's a woman's sports team. (yes I said timberwolves because I used the logic of the otber three being varieties of cats..thundercats)

What type of poker is also associated with a vertical structural support in a building?

Answer is Stud.


What is the name of the liquid filled car part that keeps.the engine cool.

Answer was Radiator.

Last good one and I only knew it because I used mah brain
How many yards including both endzones is an official football field?

Answer is 120 yards.


Honestly I knew most of the questions just because I read alot and listen to people talk. Sports stuff isn't a strong suit but I don't have to answer those, though the opposing team can call you out and make you answer the question if they don't know it.
1379  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: October 17, 2013, 11:08:51 PM
This also helps a bit with the current catch-22 situation of people expecting you to come with at least your i55 grand company weapon despite the fact that before, you couldn't even get to the appropriate rank to even be eligible to purchase it.

This is really stupid because is very forgiving for tanks. Hell, there's a guy on my server who regularly tanks it as a bard.
Tanks aurum vale? Or AK? Either way I call shenanigans.

Is that video game knowledge or is that just perving on Chun Li?

I don't remember a part in a Street Fighter game where she explains what her hairstyle is.
In game, no, but it's explained elsewhere. Actually, the more I think about it, I may just be thinking of the tekken lady, though I swear I saw it and chun li somewhere.

She (my sister) got mad when I got a pasta question right, but I got mad because they assumed a guy wouldn't know it. Fucking cappellini is thinner than spaghetti...how the hell would an average woman know that to begin with?
