Swore I put that in the other topic, but regardless thanks for the photo alisha, and the input eusis.

Am I the only one who thinks the bard armor looks great on female characters and terrible on men?

So a silly question for Tenchi, as you're probably the only person here with knowledge of it, but is there any visual differences between the artifact armor and the relic armor for jobs? Been jonesing for some of that relic armor but if it's the same color and design and all....I'd be kind of disappointed.

Ahhh. I'm a moron. To to rak is what I meant. The fourth dungeon. I ran it earlier tonight and had zero problems. Of course it all depends on the skills of the party. The tank and healer were solid, in particular.
Well, story wise, Haukke Manor is next and I know it can be troublesome for some people, especially an ill prepared tank or healer. After that is Brayflox's Longstop, where it's going to become more common to want to sleep enemies and mark targets, meaning your tank is gonna.be working harder. The first HARD dungeon is probably Sunken Temple.of Qarn. Between teratotaur's full screen doom, the temple guardian's desire to randomly run up and hit everyone but the tank, and the final boss in general....I see a lot of parties fail that one.

Did an Amdapor keep run tonight with a moron monk, a newb white mage, and arguably the greatest bard I have met (my buddy Ishia). The monk decided he knew everything after we wiped to the first boss, apparently his lazy ass couldn't be bothered to maintain himself while fighting an add from the boss. After he left, we got a replacement monk who was equally stupid. Wiped twice at the second boss because (as I suggested we make warnings when they were coming) the whm and the monk decided not to pay attention to a move that knocked them.off the arena and died. Third time, with the boss almost dead, they ate it again and fell off but I managed to shave his health down while bouncing between inner beast heals and active attacking. Final boss...easiest boss in the dungeon, and the asshole white mage paid no attention to the massive AoE 1 shot move that has a 5 second or so start up and is easily avoided by anyone who can open their damn eyes. 2 hours....wasted.

New season of Legend of Korra is like the old season. I am pleased so far.

What dungeon would u guys consider the first really challenging one?  I've done up to tam tam and they've been fairly easy with competent players. Just curious. Not saying I'm a great player or anything..
Well considering deepcroft is the second dungeon, I hope it's not been too troublesome. Probably Toto Rak or Halatali is when you'll see a slight spike in difficulty.

This game shoulda been called Final Family Guy, cuz every fucking name is like an 80's or 90's reference. There's even a quest called Giggity.
1537  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: September 12, 2013, 04:20:11 AM
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.
1541  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: September 11, 2013, 10:46:19 PM
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.
1543  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: September 11, 2013, 08:32:16 PM

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.
1545  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Xillia on: September 11, 2013, 03:18:29 PM
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.
