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....

I ran Tam Tam and Copperbell  with a friend and some really good people tonight. Got a good drop from both. My archer on Behemoth is now on par with my alt over on Diabolos. Question: Is it wise to switch to Bard as soon as I have the required levels or should I level my classes more? Does it matter efficiency-wise?
Bard level directly correlates to archer level. Level 40 archer=level 40 bard.

Oh I know darkhold is easy. I've run it a solid 7 times now, and only when people who "blame lag" have caused failures for the run.
1708  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: September 08, 2013, 05:17:10 AM
Tried aurum vale tonight....learned that morons from wow assume everyone understands their lame ass lingo.

Grab that pat....pat meant patrol.

Watch out for boss debuffs, when you have 2 stacks etc etc......stacks means multiple applications of the same debuff.

I've played ffxi for roughly 4 years, played psu and pso for a combined total of probably 5 or 6, and a couple other online rpg games here and there. The moron cursing me out for not understanding her terminology asked me if I ever played an mmo before. I nearly lost my shit and just bailed. Rage ensued.


Follow that up with a Dzmael Darkhold, or however it's spelt. One player.....oh my fucking god this one fucking player named Tyago....infinite anger. I mark 3 mobs and ask the whm to sleep #3 and he does. Sweet.


Tyago sets his stupid fucking ifrit pet to attack mode and wakes it up. Every time.

I grab a group and mark mobs to fight. He decides to walk to another group and bring them over. Grrrrr.....

I tell the group to stay in a safe spot while I grab a set of enemies. He fucking RUNS ahead, grabs a single enemy and fights it right where he grabbed. A fucking boss enemy is standing locked in the position repeatedly hitting him with a special attack and murders him. Que angry swearing.


I explain to the group how to fight the first boss....mid explanation he decided to start fighting.

Last boss, does line AoEs that supposedly insta kill (just high damage from what I can tell). I explain to not be in their path and when to expect them....he fucking runs his targeted ass up behind me and tries to get me killed,instead ends up killing my drg. Rage ensued.



Worst night in a while.

just tried cutters cry.....are you fucking kiddng me?????????????????????????????? also im getting sick of tanking multiple mobs ALL the fucking time. the manticore boss might actully be worse than titan.
Cutter's cry was fun. The bosses weren't terribly hard and the final boss was an interesting experience in paying attention to multiple actions. I keep saying this to everyone but zoom that camera out, really helps judge movement areas and.see attacks as they happen. Also, tanking involves dealing with multiple mobs...if you're having issues with that, start making use of markers and get people to follow your lead. I started marking second and third targets for sleep and priority attacking, and minus the 1 or 2 bards who swear they are immortal it's made fighting groups more streamlined.
