So I encountered an odd glitch of sorts. Just got my birdy whistle and was testing out my chocobo, and after dismounting I noticed that in menus, the cursor would disappear. It's consistent too, everytime I dismount from a chocobo. It's only til you zone, but it's very irritating. I'd like to file a bug report but am unsure of how to do so yet.

Armor is mostly dungeon raiding, but weapons I like making, mostly for the HQ purposes. Some of those HQs really give nice boosts. My Iron Labrys is a point stronger damage wise than the level 20 Inferno Axe, and better stats overall too (4 acc over 2 fire resistance? Yes please!). Plus, dem gil buyers are gonna wanna spend lots of ill earned cash on super hq weapons...might as well be my weaps they buy. I can always use dat cash.

Also, I do in fact enjoy the crafting. It's always feels rewarding.

Have you had a chance to play around with Materia yet?
Not yet, mostly due to a lack of how to. Blacksmith is my highest crafter at 17 now, I'm assuming I'd need to do the level 20.quest...right?

On another note, I had a weird glitch tonight with audio. Was mining in central thanalan and all of a sudden no noise at all. Lasted the rest of my time online. Strange and sucky...

There's actually an auto-sort function....except it's greyed out and unselectable. Sadface.

New dilemma...where the hell do I find elm lumber?

Botany?

EDIT- this might help.

Yeah, the botany suggestion is probably it. Been trying to make my own weapons for marauder now, just made a HQ Iron Labrys with the lumber I snagged off the market board. I lol'd when I HQ'd a dagger for level 20 gladiator though...wish it were something I could use.

Ok, it's driving me nuts but HOW THE HELL DO YOU SORT YOUR INVENTORY?

I can find no option to do so anywhere. Also, is there a guide or something to unlocking warrior? I'm intrigued by it.

Fuck symphonia, I want Vesperia 1.1 for ps3. I'd take a Xillia delay if they announced Vesperia PS3 englisb.

Don't let your age deceive you, Kevadu. You're already old, lol.

Honestly Tenchi, I am just dying to play it more. The gameplay is fast paced for an mmo and more active. Even running from overwhelming odds (adamantoises in my training zones much?)is less a battle of luck and more controlled by the player. Having played XI for as long as I did, this game has such a level of player control that any lingering feeling I had for XI is gone. It's not Dragon's Dogma or Mass Effect, but I have control of what I do to a much broader degree, enough so that enemies that are normally too strong to go shot for shot with can now be effectively fought and dodged. I control my fights now, and that's a big sell point for me.

I also like the crafting. It's simple but rewarding, and addictive. A little less controllable as sometimes those odds of success just say fuck you and you blow up 3 times in a row, but you have options to improve your odds and lessen that window of failure. It's also much faster and materials don't cost an arm, leg, and chocobo, allowing anyone to work on making progress.

Seriously, everything in FFXI is done better in XIV. I'm ecstatic to be in this beta and experiencing even the unfinished version of this game. Squeenix, they fucked up a lot of stuff before this, and they will drop the ball on more to come for sure, but this has renewed my faith in them.

Hey....nanomachines...

Metal Gear is not about that. Nanomachines are part of the narrative, but the series is not about that.
Metal Gear?!

Edit: on topic, what time does the next testing date start? I had just started leveling pug, since only a fool trusts his life to a weapon (that was for you ygg, I still love you as a fellow metal gear fan).
1542  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Happy 4th of July!!! on: July 04, 2013, 11:31:50 PM
I watched a small mortar turn over on its side and fire at a group of people for 10 seconds....good times.

I don't wanna quote Kevadu's earlier reply, but that didn't sound too bad honestly. Unless during the drinking you began discussing the legitimacy of large battle mechs and ki projection and manipulation...in which case then it sounds awesome.

^There you go again shoving your point of view down people's throats. :p

About Lightning being in ARR Ehren Rivers from the Nova Crystallis site made a good post about that:

"Well, this is pretty much Yoshida's doing. Toriyama revealed that they'd put a XIV default gear (Miqo'te) into Lightning Returns as a costume for he, seemingly as a "congrats" for turning things around so amazingly with XIV. Yoshida didn't want to let the favor go unreturned, and was excited to see what he could do with it.

EDIT: And to be clear, Yoshida loves the nostalgia factor and will likely continue to jam-pack ARR with stuff from older Final Fantasies."


And that's it.

Canon, continuity, plot holes, who gives a fuck?

Tell that to any Metal Gear fan.
Hey....nanomachines...

@Akanbe-: Gonna put this in spoiler tags just in case.

Code:
The ending in itself is not mind blowing, is all that you went through to get there and reach that climax in the narrative that makes the impact of that scene in particular more meaningful to the player.

Naughty Dog knew what they wanted to do and pull it off.
There's a certain line of text one gets right after beating the star dragon in Lunar 2's epilogue that sort of fits the feeling I had for the ending...
