Because the only hard part about titan is the silly healer who doesn't know how to dodge. Garuda requires a strategy that the dps never seem to follow and usually results in a wipe with Aerial Blast.

I know this is recent episodes, but a number of us were REALLY into this. It makes the lack of young justice much more bearable.

That's exactly it. In a few months time, when the actual players stay and the fuckholes run away for other games, the gearscore is going to make a difference. My experience so far has been terrible on many occasions, mostly because newbs join me in high level dungeons that don't require story progression and they don't stay on the same target as me or they run ahead and pull hate before I get there making me struggle to save the group. Or you get a healer or black mage who don't bother sleeping enemies and let me just eat hits all day, not that it phases me too much now (6,000 hp in a party). I haven't done much non-tanking, so I haven't seen poor tanks. All I'm saying regarding this gear score is thinking it's a bad idea because you personally can't be bothered to upgrade your gear is ridiculous. Even doing the story dungeons should give you some better gear assuming you don't run dps and get unlucky enough not to find anything in a run. Hell even story missions give you armor options. This whole thing is a dead issue, it drops fate grinding party schlubs out only.

So no gearscore system would mean that the moron is using a dalmatica that his fruends nabbed him through a high level fight that he afk'd in, and my dumbass invites him for a dungeon that he woyld be an integral part of as a healer, only his decent gear means nothing because he hasn't done a damn thing to play the game.

Seriously, atm the dungeons require a team that works together, not 3/4 people doing all the work and a moron leeching for exp and items. Even if he sucks, he's gonna be forced to do low end content and learn. How is this up for debate, if any of you played the game so far you'd be fully aware of this already. If you sucked before sastasha, you likely do not suck nearly as bad by haukke manor or even toto rak. You shouldn't be allowed to do anything else until you learn, and lets face it, you learn by doing.

Damn ashton, that's horseshit. Seriously MS should take a page from Nintendo's book on underhanded bullshit.

In better news, 1 year ago I weighed 395ish pounds. Today, I weigh 358. Almost 40 pounds off and I'm not even on a diet, just weights and a mile walk to the gym and back again. I'd feel amazing if it weren't for a very large lack of work coming in, making money pretty tight.

Oh emm gee they want people to actually see the content they created instead of skipping ahead and being carried by others.  

Yeah, I think you missed my point entirely.  Or are purposely ignoring it.  It actually promotes carrying, because said person can't play with their friends or FC until they have a "gear score" on the right level, so said friends and FC will carry them to the gear they need.  It isn't going to make people play content at all.

Older MMOs worked absolutely fine without this nonsense.
Wait a sec, the fc and or friends will work with them to do the low level dungeons and quests and help them obtain the gear they need so they can do the higher level gear?

Cyril....do you not see how obviously blatant your statement makes this sound in terms of a good thing? You want people to play the early stuff, experience the dungeons and areas, and then walk into higher tier fights and areas with working knowledge cuz they had to trudge through sastasha and halatali and such. Seriously...couldn't be more excited about this.

Considering my garuda harf mode run was nerfed because the smn came in with level 18 accessories and had the dps of a wet noodle, yeah, this gear check actually sounds fantastic.

Xillia's characters are some of my favorite right now. The story was meh sure, and the fields were.....incredibly lacking, plus no sorceror's ring always saddens me. But I love Milla and Jude, adored Eliza and her little eggplant doll Teepo, appreciated Rowan's amazing old man perviness, Alvin's overly suaveness, and ....well Leia was just so cute trying to be all tough girl and shit. It all fell together so well for me, I was sad when it was over.

I'm actually about to attempt Garuda.
Fair warning, Garuda's hard if you go in blind. Way harder than titan, who some people swear is actually difficult. Just make sure you drop those feathers before you lose those rocks. Keep your tank at the large rock outside of the arena at the north end of the map with her facing out of the arena. Finalky,you can dodge slipstream, and really should. Do not be in front of her when she preps it and tell your tank to run through her when she starts it then run back when it fires.

Good luck sir. I just quelled the bitch on hardmode. Wasn't easy.

Obtained Ifrit's Battleaxe last night, only took 12 runs (4 that were victories). Attempted hardmode Garuda....got smashed. It's sad how little people listen, but even sadder how many people don't speak english and make no attempt to let you know they don't.

Watched the newsroom last night. I'm still very entertained by it. I love Olivia Munn's character in it. She's hot, but she's such a nerd. It's like sophisticated Attack of The Show without the asshole Kevin making her do dumb shit.

Haha, Sloan is probably one of my favorite characters on television at the moment. She amuses me to no end. Especially when she punched that guy in the face and just walked away.
YES!!!!!!!

I still love Family Guy,but the series has become very hit or miss. The inside jokes are where most laughs come from now, like when they reference themselves or old episodes or other material the cast is involved in. The last episode featuring Stewie's time machine is a great example of this. It was really funny, but only for most of the jokes you'd get for having watched EVERY FUCKING EPISODE. Yeah, I'm one of those....
