@Klyde I gotta say...you had a very sucky class if your reunion was in single digits and held in what looks like a cafe. I shouldn't talk, I left highschool to get my GED when I realized I hated everyone there.

I actually found it easier as my THM with some healing spells to call out attacks to Mike, who was our tank. Since I'm farther from the melee, it's a bit easier for me to keep track of foes and attacks. Of course, we were on Skype so the immediacy of voice certainly helped too.
THIS, 1000% THIS.

It's the entire reason I so enthusiastically support voice chat.

So my old man was at a local (2 miles away?) Gamestop and checked in about a preorder for ps4, which I'm sure a few of you recall being mentioned that gamestop was taking unlimited preorders a couple weeks back. Skip ahead to today where my local failstop tells my dad they sold out 3 days after it was announced...unlimited right?

Checked online and sure enough gamestop stopped doing it apparently today...god I'm pissed now.

Play a tank and have the slimes on top of you and in your face....your area view gets a TAD clustered and makes maneuvering and perception required though not especially mandatory. I realize I should have wrote Copperbell can be hard, especially since the only time I got nailed by a self destruct was when the blasting cap was out of range of the slime and I ran in to get the slime in range. I should also note that unless you target said mob using a special attack you aren't aware of the time remaining before it goes off, so another small tip in the favor of those who had trouble in Copperbell.

Besides, experience is the best learning tool around. Get hit by an attack and now you know better to avoid it.

I actually think my best experience so far was the ifrit fight. Me and this one guy were bsing outside the bowl of embers battlefield and I asked about duty finderworking or not,to which he told me it was and then 5 other people started babbling about how they hadn't gotten invites yet. So I said how about that old fashioned party shout? So the first guy I had been talking with said good idea and invited me. He already had an archer there, so we just duty findered ourselves a healer and started. We discussed right before we engaged what to do, and someone enlightened us to the fetter that would spawn towards the end. Parn had given me a valuable suggestion to get second wind off the pug tree which was an invaluable idea as it saved me when I got nailed by one of his stronger attacks. But in any case,my drk dd days taught me how to get hate easily...spam stronger hits with stronger buffs up. Ifrit never took his eyes off me. The archer ran into some aoe explosion and died but we had the boss below 30% by then so it was just a case of whittle the hp down while the healer and other dd did their stuff. I went down to double digits one time which is when I used second wind and came back swinging. Easy fight was easy.

We all worked well together making sure to point out anything that needed pointing. It was a solid pick up group, and I was pleased to be a part of it.

copperbell mines is hard? wut?
the only thing that pisses me off is people doing dumb stuff like sucking at gld(lol) i only use flash once. or conj that heal in cleric stance.
Nothing in this game is hard so far, except finding consistent groups with people who either listen or have done the content we'd be doing then.

Still think you oughta file charges for tresspassing and vandalism.
2018  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: July 07, 2013, 04:12:57 PM
Well, the pathetic category should be noted as afk out of nowherr, they just stop. Especially given that you can still type and converse during cutscenes and loading screens now, there's no excuse for being MIA during a group event without notifying anyone except out of sheer indifference to your group. If you tell me your afk before you leave, i'm fine with you gone for the rest of the day, shit does happen. It's those morons who just up and walk away for a while to smoke a cigarette or something dumb and say nothing (dynamis assholes for example).

My favorite gripe in the beta thus far is the idiot whiners who shout for directions to everything. Seriously, western thanalan, every 20 minutes "Where do I get Orange Juice?" or "Where's copperbell mines?". The OJ....seriously go to a fucking shop and check for it, and the mines ARE ON THE FUCKING MAP OPEN YOUR GODDAMN MENU FOR ONCE JESUS. Seriously, this isn't ffxi, nearly any info you need for a quest is right at your menu. I will admit, however, that I nubbed out on a quest where you had to find some workers and /doubt them. 2 of them were inside a building that I didn't realize I could enter. Small series of shouts later, I was on my way again.

Definitely maining marauder at release. I realize that I make a great tank, I haven't found a group that I couldn't keep safe except for my last copperbell run. One idiot archer kept pulling the groups over and targetting a different mob from the one I would have stopped on, forcing me to expend extra tp on overpower and tomahawk spam instead of killing single enemies with Heavy Swing+Maim/Skull Sunder combos. Even after asking him to, then demanding him to, and finally threatening to leave if he didn't stop, he just kept on fucking it up. He also singlehandedly fucked up the slime fight by actively attacking the slime and pulling hate, followed by repeatedly killing the bombs and generally wasting all my tp and the healers MP curing him and then me. Such an easy fight....ruined by such a stupid asshat. Best part is he got an aetherite bow and a foestriker skirt out of it...how do the assholes always score?

Perfection is doing the correct thing with knowledge of how to do it and no need to be explained how.

Competent is asking directions before or at least during the fight to understand better what you're supposed to be doing.

Dumbass is when while being shouted at, you continue to do the incorrect course of action and in fact get upset for being told to knock it off and follow directions.

Pathetic is when you afk for 10 minutes in a dungeon and make a whole group wait on you.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow would definitely deserve a spot on the list for the titan fights. Towering monstrosities, each one larger than the last. The badass moment however,isnthe stance you take when you stare down these pricks, camera angle pointing upward from behind you looking up and all you see is Gabriel Belmont, ready to wreck face. Can't find the photo I most want, but here's the second titan you fight.

Call the police and tell them your neighbors were trespassing and vandalized the property.
2022  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: July 07, 2013, 01:42:18 PM
Copperbell was hard because people can't see when bombs self destruct, and DD like to stand still and flip through attacks. The slime was annoying for the same reason, but worse because of that whole exploding on the slime factor. That fight was so easy once people stopped hitting shit and let me take over directions. Honestly, the boss fights in copperbell should have been super fun, but idiots ruined them.

As for ifrit, beat him on my first try. Duty finder was failing me, so me and 2 other guys started bitching in shouts about it and ended up grouping up. Used duty finder for a healer and 3 minutes later we were engaged. I'm gonna be honest, I've been trying to avoid most of the big story stuff. What I read through I did enjoy though. It's not terribly engaging....that was until MAGITECK came into play.

I am literally so excited fof this game it's causing me to lose sleep.

Cleared Ifrit, marauder's level 23 now, and I've done all guildhests up to 20. I've learned that people are still incredibly stupid and can't pay attention to directions ever (gil turtle).
2024  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: July 06, 2013, 10:49:27 PM
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...
