All I know is, I was pretty excited for Ys Celceta to hit in early November, only to see the date get pushed back.

Vita looked like it was doomed for awhile there... but the reduced price point and an even larger emphasis on long-term support from Sony got ME of all people to buy one.  Prior to the Vita, I have never owned a portable gaming console.
Parn.....wtf? You going soft on us now?

If you're interested, I may take a whack at infernal mode this weekend...

Aurum Vale SUCKS. I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT!

Also, I thought Alisha was on hyperion but I could be wrong.

Also also, drg's 35 now....lost all my urge to grind because I have to go to dragonhead AKA shithole lagland. I hate dragonhead, can't do jack fatewise.

You guys missed out on me and kevadu wrecking hard mode's final boss....twice. We pwned the shit out of it.

Goddamn.....nerds.....persona.....rage......

Another suggestion Alisha....make some friends. They're far more willing to help out then randoms. If you're not liking it on hyperion, you could hop to coeurl and join up with some of us...

im starting to think i just might not be cut out for this game. i was just asked to leave an AK run(and i complied) because i kept dying at the end boss. i couldnt for the life of me keep up my dps and manage my pet and monitor the bosses lifebar for imminent catastrophe. then i have to find a pillar then i have to identify where the orb is before it explodes. i didnt realize this till after i left but i think i inadvetently dropped the orb next to the tank a few times. i just feel like a lot of times my mind is being stretched too thin.
You're overthinking it. If you have to reposition yourself so much it's because the tank didn't line himself up well with the boss. Ideally everyone should be at a statue the whole duration, and if the tank has a good position for him/herself and the boss you ccan literally stand right next to the boss the whole duration. It also makes for easy orb disposal too, since once you see it you run away and drop it, then run back right to the statue.

Nah,just take crit bonus off and give defiance a 25% healing boost that's native rather than based on wrath stacks. The fact that everything warrior does is based off of having wrath at full at all times or using it all in one shot makes warriors in general very cautious in approach. Like I can use inner beast at an optimal oppertunity and nail almost 3k health back in one shot,sure. However,most bosses at this point can easily clear 2k hp in a single swing, and now I have normal healing again, and unless Infuriate or Thrill of Battle are up, nothing left but to rely on the healer. 15% bonus cures can be a godsend when healing 2k hp in a single heal.

Personally my favorite idea is to give defiance an innate overheal factor where excess HP recovered goes into a stoneskin effect, perhaps based on the amount of wrath available. I would also like to see wrath have more useability besides hold it all or blow it all,like maybe expend 2 stacks to give regen boost, or 3 stacks for unchained instead of all of them, thats nuts that I have to blow infuriation to give myself back standard war damage for 20 seconds. I really think whoever designed these classes has no real experience using them, because the logic behind most of them is lost...my opinion anyway.

I have a secret appreciation for women's fashion. I like seeing different outfits on them and surprisingly I don't find the shoe obssession so outlandish. That being said I myself am the proverbial tshirt and jeans guy. If I could get married in a black tshirt and blue jeans, I'd be the happiest groom on the face of the earth.

Also, leather pants are strange, though I can safely say I love a girl in a pair of leather pants. It just works.

The worst part about the elitism is that it's not about necessity, it's about laziness. A warrior is fine for tanking BC, you just can't be lazy and your healers can't slack. Even titan is doable when geared adequately as a war tank, the healers just need to ACTUALLY heal and not spam medica all day. It's not elitism that is making XIV such a polluted cesspool, it's laziness. I ran brayflox on my drg in training, and watched the tank sit there and eat every AoE in the dungeon. When I asked he said the scholar can heal me fine so I don't have to dodge. At the main boss he ate a dragon's breath and died towards the end, though luckily he was so close to death that I managed to whittle away his health fast enough to still win. Best part was the run dropped like 3 pieces of cavalry gear for him. Nothing DD, but plenty of tank gear for the lazy ass tank....

I hope they really don't make AK easier, because right now it's entirely about players being lame. I went in at a brand new level 50, with a group who was fairly new to it and we managed to figure out the fights as we went. Granted the last fight was beastly hard until you find the corner to stand in as a tank,but then it's stupidly easy. Just forna challenge now I leave defiance off and go for damage output against it now. Healers sometimes panic but when they see that if they heal appropriately and not just spam overheals it works fine, generally leading to tbe fucker dying before he gets a third catastrophe off in decent groups.

I like nicknames and petnames...they show you care about people and....sometimes save you from saying names you feel awkward saying.
1438  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: October 12, 2013, 08:24:05 PM
so the difficulty of lvl 50 dungeons is gonna be adjusted.
i'm guess the 2 mid bosses
WHAT?! I can fucking solo demon wall for crying out loud (until I hit the poison spew),they do not need to adjust difficulty, they need to make it harder if anything. Christ, if people can't kill these dungeon bosses, GO FUCKING LEARN TO PLAY THE GODDAMN GAME! How the hell do people expect to touch Bahamut when they can't beat a stationary wall with the absolute most predictable pattern in a video game ever made. Megaman bosses had less discernable patterns then this stupid wall does.

i dunno i think we just need to join a fc and duty finder aint gonna cut it for the level 50 dungeons
Fuck an FC, just get a decent Linkshell, those work way better.

Started doing titan runs as a war dps, my buddy tanked as pld. 3 wins, died one time. Titan is officially easy mode.

she's a bard.
Then why's she concerned? Just keep attacking stuff and be a proper bard. As long as she pays attention to the hate bars so she doesn't go out of her way to pull mobs off the ta k she's doing fine.
