Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood |OT| Y'all Need to Calm Down

Got around to watching an episode of GARO, since they keep bringing up the guest director guy for the Ivalice dungeon...wow. W T F.

(Edit) The live action one. Maybe the anime is betterer.

the live action or the anime? the live action is probably hard to get into for someone that's never watched that kind of stuff before (and i also think it's not a very good version of that kind of show) but the anime is a rad dark medieval fantasy affair and works really well especially if you like the berserk aesthetic

Hey ya guys,

I got a question, what is there to do at endgame? If I don't care about raiding is there any other way to progress? With WoW when I take a break from Raiding, I can run mythic + dungeons and basically get equal to better gear in literally a 3rd of the time it takes to raid.

Also, there a lot of open world PvE content in in Legion this time around and I really enjoy being in the open world and not just spamming instanced content. How is it in Stormblood. If there is one thing I don't like in MMOs is standing around in towns just spamming duty/group finder and automatically being placed in a dungeon.

That's pretty much what I do whenever I play.
 
That's pretty disappointing to hear.
I'm not interested in crafting and there's no sidequests that I can think of that need doing so I'm just doing some dungeons to get the ilevel I need to do the new stuff coming this week.

I mean if you like crafting and gathering you could do that but I personally have no interest in crafting or doing the Omega savage stuff so I mostly just play other games once I've gone through the new patch content a bunch of times.
 
I'm a former FFXIV-player, who doesn't know anybody in real life who plays the game and has an irreconcilable loathing of using the duty finder.

I just looked through the Patch 4.1 Notes, and noticed something called "command missions". Maybe I'm misunderstanding it, but is it essentially saying that you can run through 4-person content with AI now? If so, would that be a viable option for progressing through the game?

If it is, I'd definitely resub.

If that is your preference, I'd say stay away. Non-instanced content is still a hugely lacking part of this game.

You'd need your squad leveled up I think. I don't know if you can run them the first time that way either. They also only consist of some of the low level duties.

If you are nervous with strangers, if it helps, I could run through the dungeons with you.
 
Thanks for the help, guys ^

Also I'm trying to optimise v4s a little better with AST/SCH healer comp. Anyone got any tips?

Basically at the end of Omega, I've got all my CDs like Earthly Star, CO, CU, and Largesse. And Lucid Dreaming, of course. The issue is trying to decide which CDs to use on the almagest after Omega, and which ones to save for the almagest following Grand Cross Delta, soon after. Right now I'm using CU, CO for the former, and saving the star to top everyone off after GCD. However this leaves a problem where the almagest that follows hits terribly hard and my dps drops dramatically.

Have no problems clearing of course, but it just feels super inefficient to be spamming helios so much. I guess I just gotta suck it up?
 
Got a char on Odin finally (been busy).
How does the different dps classes compare to one another? I mean in terms of utility abilities, pure damage output, general usefulness in group environments?
I've heard that dragoons been weak for awhile, for example. Not sure how true that is. Is it because they lack in dps, and if so do they make up for it with utility?
That sort of stuff... I started with a pugilist this time around. I've been torn between this and just going summoner but i already got one at 50 on Ultros (50 bard, 50 summoner to be precise) and i wanted to change it up a bit.
Never been fond of melee though so not sure if i should stick with the pugilist.
Is there any good resources with some short writeups in regards to all the classes and what they bring to the table? Or maybe youtube?
As a side note, i enjoy dot heavy, debuff and controlling classes. But also those that require fast reflexes. I don't really care about being the highest dps class if it means i can bring a lot of utility instead.
Basically chainlock insta dot classes, heh.

One really pleasant surprise from the relocation feature...

Old Plot Exterior: Paissa Cottage Walls
Destination Plot Exterior: Paissa House Walls
Free exterior upgrade. Given the farming involved, I figured you would lose those custom housing walls if you changed house sizes.

If anyone is planning to upgrade and wants one of the custom walls, now is the time to do it. Only have to farm a fraction of the parts for the small versions as you do the large ones.

Somehow I feel that Shinryu ex wont quite be up to thordan extreme standards if they said some might find O2S harder.
I just hope it's an entertaining fight. I found Thordan to be very tedious and boring to run. By contrast, you had Nidhogg with a ton of mechanics to work with and the way it all came together was a lot of fun.

Thanks! I'm gonna wait a little before joining your FC. At the moment i'm playing overwatch and secret world legends with my girlfriend but i wanted something to fill the hours in between dailies in swl, so that's why i took up ffxiv again. I'm probably gonna play Destiny 2 as well so me starting ffxiv is kind of a trial run to see if i get hooked again.
I have a friend joining me, might persuade my girlfriend too (she seems bored with swl lately), so if we decide to stay it would be cool if we all could join :)
Only lvl 10 now. I figured i'd play to about 20-30 before deciding to stay, and if so i might transfer my old character.
Just starting again made me realise how much i remembered so starting fresh felt a little rough. Appreciate the invite! My char's named lain ipeq, ipoq? ipiq?
Fake edit:
Lain iriq is my name. Never could figure out a surname, just went with a random one. Ugh, The only shape of the horns that i liked (decided on Au Ra) has completely the wrong shape on the face. Might just transfer my Miqo'te sooner than i'd planned.
Thanks for the class tips. I'm staying on the pugilist for now. Already feel like i've decided to transfer my old char if i decide to play longer than just a month.

Edit:
Is it possible to change so the camera turns with the mouse? What i mean is, instead of having the traditional mouse turning (holding down M2), it would just turn on its own? I've gotten used to it thanks to swl.
And are the accessibility options actually useful for someone that usually don't need them? The wording "visual alerts" make it sound really useful.
 
Anyone know what the ilvl req will be for the Ivalice raid? I have a friend who wants me to do it with them but I haven't played in awhile so I'm worried I'm terribly undergeared for it atm.

Shinryu EX is going to be 320, so the Ivalice thing will probably be considerably lower than that. 290-310 most likely.
 
Hey guys! Just started playing and I've got a Lv. 39 Bard. I joined the FC on Ultros (thanks to whoever accepted me) and am doing the Coerthas storyline. If there's anyone around the same level who wants to hang or do duties or anything, feel free to hit me up.

I'm enjoying the game, but these early story quests are living up to their reputation for being a slog!

I'm past that on my main job but I've been leveling stuff on the side. Hit me up if you wanna play sometime. I'm Dandy Crocodile in game too.

visual Alerts is something they inserted in patch 2.38 for people with hearing problems .

otherwise it serves little purpose .

If you ever need help with something, ask in the fc chat. Usually not hard to get some people together for things.
