Show me your Dragoon glamours RIGHT NOW.
I mean there's what,the 3-4 job sets that look like dragoon armor and that's about it?doubt you can do much else
Why are Ishgardians so disgusting
Neither an MMO nor an RPG. Go back to /vg/.
>>1198775If Aranea and Freya are any indication the series can have a somewhat loose interpretation of a dragoon. It's really more important that they're armored, than anything, and if not armored then that they have some kind of dragon paraphernalia. I saw a more tribal Dragoon glamour made once with the Ghost Barque maiming dragon-mask, which is also a decent dragon-hat option for any poor dopes that picked Viera and Hrothgar.
>>1198785Trying to be a hall monitor outs you as being a /vg/ gremlin yourself
>>1198779>fight in war to liberate your people from terror of dragons>your children use the hard-fought peace to become degenerate communal salt rock lickers
>>1198866shoo, heretic, you couldn't ever hope to try and shatter the proud ishgardian tradition of salt licking
how accurate is this?
>>1198876I'm a roegadyn but in my heart I'm a type C Elezen.
>>1198779>licking the communal salt rock>disgusting
how do I be a better samurai
They need to increase Faux Hollow rewards if they expect me to put up with these PF retards every week
>>1198901Always start with the Kasha (flower) combo because skill-speed up is more important than strength-speed up, then do the Gekko (moon) combo up to Jinpu and use iaijutsu for Higanbana (DoT) with both buffs and don't let your DoT fall off unless it's unavoidableGet Meikyo Shisui on cooldown as soon as Higanbana is upThe doubled-up iaijutsu skill you get partway to 80 should only be spent on Tenka Goken in AoE pulls or on Midare Setsugekka in single-target, a doubled-up Higanbana does not stack and your damage would be better spent on Midare even if it didPump out as much iaijutsu as often as you canBurn extra kenki on Hissatsu: ShintenHagakure is completely worthless unless your sens are misaligned (for some reason, say you lost track of Higanbana's time), this isn't Stormblood, Shinten spam is a considerable damage loss over Midare spamUse Third Eye and the counterattack as often as possible, it's a lot of damage per-kenki spent on it
>>1198876Miqo'te "female" is spot on. Au'ra is also spot on but I'm not sure what it means by "Lite edition". They are one and the same. Viera is also spot on. As is Lalafell. Basically anyone who plays those four races and as a female should be avoided. Lalafell should be avoided in general.
>>1198951MALE HYUR ONRY MALE HYUR ONRY MALE HYUR ONRY MALE HYUR ONRY
Okay 50k fishing. Got the crab and everything else I wanted from scrips. I'll go do 50k crafting in a week when mat prices tank
>>1198951Correct. Only Hrothgar and Roegadyn belong in the game.
>>1198951Hyur hands typed this
>>1198954>>1198968You will never meet a bad Hyur, male or "female". Comparatively you will never meet a good Miqo'te, male or "female".
>>1198980I don't think you've ever actually played this game if you've never met a bad Hyur player or an obnoxious Hyur player.
>>1198958Finally an objective fact
>>1198983Played since 2.0 bubbo and I can state for a fact that my statements are all 100% true.
>>1198876type B hyur is the closest to me I guess
>>1198980>You will never meet a bad Hyur, male or "female"I dunno, some of the worst players I've ever seen were male hyur, super generic isekai looking motherfuckers are guaranteed to be terrible
,>>1198876The Roegadyn memefag is accurate.
>>1198876>pedophile>"they're actually adults so it's okay"wait a tick this isn't adding up
>>1198876I like playing vierra because chocolate bunnies and coom what does that make me? All other factors are irrelevant. If a new sexy race comes along would not swap.
>>1198876Mostly but I play a lalafell to be a hypercock futanari shortstack when I'm not parsing and playing at an adequately satisfactory level.
>>1198876Miqo'te A. Not specifically into yaoi though, just as much gay shit as the average homo
>>1198876Most femroes are futanari like 99% of the time they're a musclegirl with a horsecock/horse sized cock. Usually have a big NTR fetish too.
>>1199039Most femroes I meet are mommy-doms with like vaginas and stuff. One I met has a colossal lactation/breastfeeding fetish and chose the race with the biggest booba. We met and married over this game.
>>1199044I keep reading that this game has the highest percentage of females among any MMO and yet in the now 7 years I've played I've not been acquainted with a single girl. It's always men. And I know because I voice chat with them.
>>1199057All the chicks are on Crystal, formerly Aether.
>>1198779>he doesn't lick the family's heirloom salt
>>1199061I mean actual women not mentally ill freaks.
>>1199065Stay off nu-Aether then because they're all in Faerie.
>>1198983I've played since 1.0 and I can confirm, I have never met a shitty Hyur player but when I queue in and see a male Miqo'te I already know how things are going to go.
>>1199065It's actually true, Crystal is full of housewives and tumblr bitches. They love roleplay. They're still mentally ill, but they are female.
>>1199076Crystal gets blamed for the behavior of Faerie, in my experience. I have never had an ERP walk-up even on Balmung or Mateus, I currently reside on Coeurl.
>>1199082ERPers don't typically walk up themselves, they just plop it in their search info and then idle while they browse on discord, f-list, or /trash/. Faerie is a fucking nightmare though.
desu I hate the community for this g*me.
>>1199082>>1199178I've been a half naked male many times in faerie and never got an erp whisper am I being lucky or something
>>1199190I find it extremely pleasant compared to most MMO communities. Maplestory in particular is full of cunts nowadays who have no patience for anything that isn't a power-grind.
>>1199082>go to Diadem at patch release>a bunch of Faerie players complaining about Crystal in shout chat>"you're all Faerie players, you are just like Crystal if not worse">get 10+ angry tells and people going "omg dude what's ur problem are you okay???"Heh
>>1199205FF14 is just strange enough that it filters out the worst normalfags. The problem is all the WoWfugees that have flooded over they're like a literal blight. Reddit too.
>>1199201Nope, it's by and large a meme
>>1199322The so called "WoWfugees" aka anyone who has played WoW are the most pleasant people I've found. If only because by the time they've played enough to know exactly what FFXIV is, they realise it's garbage and go right back to playing WoW now that they know just how good they had it there.
>>1199334I'll think of your post every time I see a "Morana Stormwind" type name with five jobs max-leveled.
>>1199334t. angry WoWfugee that got dropped from his static
>>1199057I'm friends with more women that play this game than men. Crystal has a much higher density, and I don't mean troons or whatever. Women like RP and the "lifestyle" aspects of games like housing, glamour, crafting, gathering, and chatrooming, which are more popular in general on Crystal.
>>1199337They were never going to make it in WoW with the big boys anyways. Only bottom feeders stick around "playing" this non-mmo.>>1199338Too busy in Castle Nathria with the boys to "play" a 2.5 second GCD multiplayer lobby action-adventure game like this. Maybe if I ever develop a crippling addiction to wanking to anime cat "girls" I'll "play" it again since I'll have time to beat my gamer stick between every button press.
>>1199376>multiplayer lobby action-adventure gameWoW is the TRUE and HONEST MMO and it is NOT FINALS FANNASY SOMETHING
>>1199385Careful, anon, you shitpost any harder and you'll pull something. Chris-chan's an e-celeb?
>>1199387>Chris-chan's an e-celeb?Technically yes
>>1199390Well by sheerest technicality yeah but I know that's not what people mean when they throw a fit about e-celebs on /v/ and its daughter-boards.
>>1199376>Too busy in Castle Nathria with the boys to "play" a 2.5 second GCD multiplayer lobby action-adventure game like this. Maybe if I ever develop a crippling addiction to wanking to anime cat "girls" I'll "play" it again since I'll have time to beat my gamer stick between every button press.For someone who doesn't care much you seem to be caring an awful lot.
>>1199393I care to remind cultists that their 2.5 second GCD multiplayer lobby action-adventure game is not an MMO.
>>1199397I would probably pick literally any MMO that doesn't have a Flappy Bird minigame in it for the sake of that argument, but MMORPGs are nearly a dead genre so you don't have a lot of material to work with.
>>1199399I can look at the list of most played MMO's at the moment and choose anything else. For example: BDO is an MMO, Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO, GW2 is an MMO, Runescape is an MMO and WoW is of course still the King of MMO's. FFXIV however is not an MMO and never will be.
>>1199397>I care to remind cultists that their 2.5 second GCD multiplayer lobby action-adventure game is not an MMO.Repeating a dull old line. Is this the state of the modern WoWfag? So drained of his intellectual capacity by Bobby Kiketick that he can't think of anything original say?
SHIT GAME LMAO U MAD XIVFAGS? is some baby shit, WoW anon, get on another fucking level. You don't even know enough about either game to hang around for more than a few minutes.
>>1199468Every time this picture is posted I want to start a Lalafell
Is Monk still shit or is it worth playing now? It's the one job I enjoy.
>>1199475>Every time this picture is posted I want to fuck a Lalafell*fixed
>>1198886Me too, anon.
this namazu is now dead
>>1199484Monk was greatly improved by the removal of Greased Lightning even if it means we're back to 100% Fists of Fire time again. Tornado Kick was turned into an OGCD attack, Brotherhood was made less stupid, and Perfect Balance has a fun loop of empowered Bootshine -> Dragon Kick you can do for a row of guaranteed crits since GL is totally irrelevant.
6.0 will recycle the Ishgardian restoration by having us rebuild the Eorzean Sharlayan colony
>>1199542as long as its not something shitty like Ala Mhigo restoration, I don't want to go back to that shithole
>>1199542I'd be up for Idyllshire, or hell even a town outside Eulmore or something
>>1199484Come home, brother
>>1199591>big numbers mean it good
>>1199602BLM has been getting away with that excuse for years so yes
>>1199613No, BLM has an actual playstyle that feels nice to get right. MNK had one and then it was stolen.
>>1199613BLM's actually really fun and has been for years, it's one of the few jobs that hasn't been fucked yet
>>1199614>stolenfuck off, this is the most MNK has been tweaked since heavensward, no tornado kick's rotation in stormblood was not by design
>>1199627>fuck off, this is the most MNK has been tweaked since heavenswardIf by "tweaked" you mean "having every mechanic wiped away because it's too hard for shitters", yes. But BIG POG WE GOT STEEL PEAK BACK RESKINNED AS TORNADO KICK HOLY SHIT IT'S SO COOL!!!!!>no tornado kick's rotation in stormblood was not by designDoesn't matter if it was by design or not, it worked and it was fun. In XI when the playerbase made NIN into a tank against its design, the devs just went with it because it worked.
>>1199637If you want carpal tunnel burst phase you can always play NIN. MNK's main design is a fast GCD and positional-heavy gameplay, as long as it keeps those it doesn't lose anything substantial.
>>1199674MNK's main design used to be upkeeping many buffs and debuffs while also nailing positionals. It was a high IQ job until Stormblood fucked it, and then by some miracle we got Tornado Kick to make it interesting again. Now it has nothing. It plays like a level 50 DRG.
Faerie isn't as gay festive as I thought it would be. It's actually sort of dead.
>>1199681>MNK's main design used to be upkeeping many buffs and debuffsThat's literally how every other job worked back then, it was not unique to MNK. SE decided to cut down on DoT upkeep but MNK didn't lose anything compared to other jobs.
Do midlander players really...
>>1199681>Touch of Death/Fracture paddingthis was peak Monk
>>1199637>"having every mechanic wiped away because it's too hard for shitters"If you want to conflate "unfun" with "cerebral, challenging rotation", sure. I fucking hated SMN in Stormblood but I don't mind it so much in Shadowbringers even though it's largely the same at its core because it got rid of some jank. MNK has been awful for a long time but somebody who's defending the TK rotation, the game's biggest example of janky unfun bullshit, I could see having words otherwise.>In XI when the playerbase made NIN into a tank against its design,You really want to use XI? The game that nerfed a lot of jobs in response to Absolute Virtue being cleared in ways the developers didn't intend for so that you were forced to?
>>1198876Fuck Hyur C hit way too deep Ardbert face and all I was thinking about fantaing into a duskwight though
>>1199681Monk was never a high IQ job, its just that most of the game's community is sub 50 IQ
>>1199713what is wrong with it's head
>>1198876I've never noticed the cat tranny trademark before kek
>>1199866South American mutt genes
>>1199896wtf lalafells are based now
>>1198876>Considers himself a 'hot mom'lol
>>1198876Pretty inaccurate tbqh I play Miqo'te and don't fit any of those stereotypes. I only rolled it because at the time it was supposed to be the best race for melee DPS and now I just tank everything.
>>1199995Race kino is playing a Black Mage, in artifact, as a max height male roe.
>>1199411WoW is a really bad game and not an RPG.
I want to impregnate a Lalafell
>>1200438haha ew imagine a lalafell heavy with children and her butt and breasts fill out from getting ready to be a mother that would be gross haha
>>1200612The lalafell wanting to be impregnated by you at any cost is another matter entirely.
>>1200569Wouldn't it be wacky if her hormones went out of control while she was pregnant and she ended up craving constant dickings haha
>>1198876Type C and D Hrothgar here, but I play BLM instead and I want to cuck middie and catmen by taking their women
>>1198785What. How is it not an MMO? it has the third highest player count in any mmo in existence. Are you fucking retarded
>>1200913Don't reply. It's typical bait.
>that one asshole who has to mass desynth hundreds of whatever right next to the Firmament retainer bellWhy do people have to be this obnoxious?
>>1200926I'm sorry, I'm a stupid fish
>>1200937You don’t tell me what to do.
>>1199614>MNK had one and then it was stolen.You're right. It was the "Selfish Melee DPS" job and then for some inane reason Yoshi-P decided to give that role to Samurai because the Devs had no idea what to do with Monk after fucking them over in HW and again in SB. There is nothing that Monk can do which Samurai can't do better. It's basically been without an identity ever since.

I got the new casual outfit from the scratchers. My catboy looks so cute now. He's voice 2 so you know he has extra obnoxious catboyness.
When can we expect 5.5?Also, what's the best way to level my retainers?
We should've let Ishgard burn
>>1201800>upton sinclair's the jungle happened a couple times in ishgardian culinaries and they didn't think too hard about itbased
>>1201800why? Ishgard is the only city state worth a fuck, also these descriptions are great
>>1201787sb 2.0 trashlazy lunar primalsprobably one OH shit moment at the end for a finale.
>>1201815no matter how many times you chant "stormblood 2.0" it stands no more chance of being true than it did the first time you said it
>>1201800i wish we could burn kugane and ala mhigo. what a useless expansion.
>>1201787Twins might get written out to surprise the new job for 6.0. WOL gets bonked. someone gets bonked. doubt some cataclysm map changes will happen. will be kino when fandaniels dabs on that faggot zenos and were done with them.
>>1201800The morbid lalafell jokes are starting to get boring. Get some new material Koji.
>>1201831>Zenos gets led to Zodiark only for Zodiark to totally mindfuck him>he starts begging WoL to kill him to free him from his slaveryThe only way to save that shit character
>>1201837>wol doesnt kill zenos>a side character does it denying zenosh is final wish. kino.
>>1201833They're so sparse throughout that they hit like a dump-truck when they come, there's only one or two per expac.
>>1201837Zenos stands a lot likelier a chance of shooting for Hydaelyn because she's near-death and refuses to temper anybody even if it would suit her ends, and Zenos is so antithetical to Zodiark that Elidibus had a hard time even summoning a construct of him. Conversely if Zodiark were resummoned and mantled by anybody it'd be WoL since he's a megaprimal of salvation.
>>1201866thats terrible. nothing will salvage that predictable cliche plot.
>>1201866Yeah I actually do think Danny is going to have Zenos mantle Hydaelyn. Both to force you to kill her, and so that the noise won't have anything holding it back anymore.
>>1201871I'm sorry you want objectively worse writing because you prefer your fanfiction to the story.
>>1201875cliche fuck. your headcanon is fanficiton dumb shit.
>>1201878"zodiark is evil!" is a cliche and one you fell right into trying to campaign for Zenos to mantle him. You really have no room to talk.
>>1201873danny is going to dab so hard on that waste of a character and it will just be a bad side raid.
>>1201884do you, like, get off on being a dumbass or something
>>1201883Nobody said Zodiark is evil
I really hate Diadem shout chatIt really makes me aware that I'm playing with fucking 12 year oldsOr adults who act like 12 year olds
>thinking fandaneil and katana fag are going to be relevant in 6.0they are getting WORFED by noise niggas. ascian niggas will be cucks.

>>1201899i look forward to lyse saving the day in 5.5 . she will literally kick that tempered faggot in the face in the 5.4 finale.
>>1201903I look forward to you pushing back your "zenos will be cucked any moment now" spiel further and further as patches roll by and he's still relevant just like every other faggot with a story-based posting gimmick that's popped up since Heavensward

>>1201910yall seethe real good here yea?
>>1201911Anon pretty much every crafter is doing the new stuff ASAP, striking while the iron is hot means striking within the first couple of days. You were late to the party for being a crafting jew.

should i go for top 12 in ishgard restoration? im currently rank 17 putting in ~4 hours per day. i dont even want the title, i wish there was a different reward
>>1202009Have any jobs to level? Not a lot TO buy with them if you're not leveling jobs or doing relic weapons.
>>1202045I got top 12 in first season putting in exactly 3 hours of crafting. You're doing something extremely wrong.
Is there a replica vendor for the Eureka Elemental armors like there is for the Eureka weapons? Or if I upgrade to the +1 versions, do I need to farm the basic versions back again if I want them too?
>>1202048I've already bought all the gear for the jobs I would ever want to levelI even bought a full set of aiming scaevan gear in case COR is the next DPS job
>>1202082YOULL NEVER GET CORSAIR PIRATE SCUM.
>>1202075its a gathering profession, they are more competitive than certain crafters
>>1202082>COR comes out>it uses Scouting
>>1199484There's no more instances of getting fucked by fight cutscenes and a few other issues were fixed. Some of the other issues it had were exacerbated, like overflowing on Chakra because of there not being any overhead and Riddle of Fire is overstuffed with oGCDs. It just feels like an awkward half step at the moment rather than a fully fleshed out job.
>>1202095I still think the statement holds true. If you're gathering, not botting, and still trying to be competitive, you've messed up
>>1202108it doesnt>i dont have aesthete's>i had the 3rd highest point gain of anyone on my server yesterdaydunno why you want to pick a fight t.b.h.

Hi all, after breaking 1000 hours in game, Ive level 71'd every class and just finished level 80 DRK and Shadowbringer"s. I've mained tank since the beginning and after I maxed out DRK I felt I wanted to play some DPS jobs for a little while to take a break and I'm feeling really over pressured into playing RDM because its the only DPS with (significant) self healing. I don't really like RDM, its really dull and boring and the other classes like DRG and BLM have so much more character and are more interesting to play. However their blatant lack of survivability just makes playing anything other than RDM extremely annoying when single mobs in overworld can kill me.I'm just wondering if there's something I'm missing with the "other" DPS jobs or if this is a consistent problem that others are experiencing? I hate sitting in hour long queue's just to play a non-RDM DPS. I feel like all of the DPS jobs need consistent and self sustaining healing that's not on a timer. maybe make RDM's heal the only heal that can be used on others to keep it unique, but at least give the others something to keep them alive.And no, Second Wind and Bloodbath are not self sustaining heals, they barely do anything in the best cases, thank you.Every class that isn't my main is using the GL400 Scaevan Gear and I get all of my rotations from the Desperious guides on Youtube. Hopefully that clarifies a bit on my skill level. none of the other classes are past 72 at this point in time other than RDM and DRG.
>>1202272You're gonna need a lot spicier than that if you want to weep and wail about Crystal all day. I'm talking World of Warcraft Goldshire "RPing as a golem made of feces" tier. Sit and spin if you can't provide the cringe I'm looking for and you think trannies are the spiciest thing since chili-powder.
>>1202276lol he's seeeeething!!

>>1202353you either called them out for the PF thing and they tried to deflect or it's a fag wanting ERPeither way you dodged a bullet
why are all gunbreakers in DF fucking retarded?
>>120235390% chance it was someone that was after something you might not have wanted, either that or you just made a newbie trying to socialize jaded.
>>1202387because it's the go-to class for dpshitters who don't know how to tank
>>1202387I don't trust any Gunbreaker that doesn't wear their artifact coat.

Are there any ninja-to looking glamors besides the ARR relic weapon?
>>1202898Mostly just NIN's relics.
>>1202898Your only options for that are NIN relics (and even then usually only the base forms) and Seiryu's Daggers.
>>1201394>isn't the entire point of these things to make them wearable by every job? like the replica sky pirate stuff?you'd think, the korean version of the game actually has these sets as glamours without job restriction but they're on their mogstation, everyone who saw these coffers were hoping that this would be NA/JP's way of obtaining those glamours but alas, the devs are tone-fucking-deaf
Haven't played since 5.1 I think it was or whatever patch started the first phase of Eden. Got bored and dropped it. Any fun new shit added besides the same old alliance raids etc? I've pretty much not looked up anything. Undecided on whether I should resub since I have a lot of time on my hands.
>>1200565i really like it, i probably need to make a PF for omega savage myself since i never see any up when i look fffffffff
>>1202353Kind of. They sound autistic if they were just saying "how r u" and they likely would have faltered and not known what to say after but the least you can do is humour them. They should have opened with something better like asking if you wanted to run something or an opinion on a glam. If it was Balmung though then you did nothing wrong.
>>1202838Dye it white and use it for Paladin
>>1203155Iunno, then you'd look kinda like Livia.
>>1203083Bozja, but it's smaller than Eureka
>>1203439Not so much, go helmetless and wear the newest PLD circlet for full Cecil.
FFXIV probably saved my life.Today marks three years since my Name Day, the day I legally changed my name as part of my social transition. And as usually happens on important anniversaries of my transition, I reflect on how important Final Fantasy XIV was to me finally figuring out I'm a trans woman.If it wasn't for Final Fantasy XIV and this character, I don't know where I'd be right now. I created Rhagana Doomslayer on September 15, 2013.A year or so after I made Rhagana, I was invited to a free company by its leader, Towering Falcon. She introduced me to the rest of the players with she/her pronouns and in that instant, my egg was pretty much shattered.I didn't correct her, and for about a year I struggled with who I really was. Until one night at work, I literally had an internal back and forth. And once I admitted the truth, my mind knew a peace that it had never known. All of the weight that I didn't know was on my shoulders finally dropped and it felt like I had surfaced after nearly drowning.My story isn't exactly unique. Many trans folks, as well as cis gays, have used online games and the internet as a path to self discovery for as long as both have existed. To say nothing of how we use the internet as a (somewhat) safe space to express ourselves.Final Fantasy as a series has always been important to me, because it taught me games could be more than just interactive toys. Now, FFXIV specifically is important to me because it probably saved my life and taught me who I am.
>>1202397I wear the starter outfit with some shades
>>1202414I'm just glad the schwing and the crowd noises are gone
>>1203631May as well upgrade to the veteran's-reward Squall outfit since that's what Outsider gear is
>>1203692Maybe he likes the eorzea style version of it?
>>1203482There's two identical femroes by that name, one on Faerie and one on Coeurl, both of which are extremely low-level tank classes (not jobs) and which aren't assigned to a FC. This is an extremely bizarre and specific shitpost.
>>1203694>>1203692Not the other anon but I really like the pants on the female version. It also has more of an cowboy adventurer aesthetic than Squall's outfit.
>>1203482>>1203709Oh, it's a crosspost from r/ffxiv after googling it. The account has an extensive posting history on r/GamerGhazi that still exists? I remember that subreddit when it was brand new and made to own Gamergate shitlords epic-style where they're a moderator, but they're evidently a real person, there's also a Towering Falcon on Balmung who actually exists and does own an FC. Rhagana doesn't post about FFXIV at all until roughly eight months ago with extremely scattered posts to a glamour subreddit and to r/ffxiv itself and the character doesn't seem to exist anymore, so either they've deleted their character or they're making shit up with a screenshot tool.Either way anon is seething about randoms he saw on Reddit, I don't care enough to dig beyond the first ten or twenty pages of their Reddit post history, I was mainly just curious.
>>1203692The texture of the fur fucking sucks.
>>1203749Squall's assets in general don't look too good, I didn't like how the Revolver came out either.
>>1203751Revolver looks fucking great though.
>>1203745HIGHLY feminine post
>>1203782I'm much more of a Lion Heart or Doman Steel Gunblade kind of guy.

>join e11 reclear pf>party instantly closes, not even half a second after I join>party goes back up, unable to join because of error message>look it up, I've been blacklistedI've literally never played with this person before, what the hell
>>1203797sounds like you're a shitter
>>1199057I keep finding women in party finder groups when I use voice chat with them, but it seems like every static I've joined never has any women. I don't know if it's just a small sample size or what, but it's possible the two sexes are segregated somewhat just by interest.
How do you refute this...?
>>1203797How can you even tell if you're blacklisted?
>>1203869you dont. just keep playing the mmo. maybe remember them and maybe kill the noise nigga to avenge the mask boys
>>1203869By telling him it was him and his fuccboi interdimensuonal liches that keep whispering in people's ears for this and that power grab so it's kind of hollow to hear him complain about the tragedies of mankind when he's directly responsible for a large portion of them
>>1203869I would ask him what exactly we've done is crueler than intentionally causing said calamities and wiping out billions of lives just for the selfish reasoning of wanting to bring back people that are already dead
>>1203869You literally can't
>>1203906All the Ascians ever do is offer power to people. They have a very hands-off approach and simply wait for the opportunity to use a manmade disaster as a Calamity.
>>1203797Wishful thinking, but maybe there's an application that looks up a player on fflog for their parses.
>>1203802No, I made sure. They haven't even cleared 12 and they're all green.I have fucking oranges on everything aside from 12 part 1.
>>1203915Even if that were true, it means they are manipulating creatures they believe far weaker and stupider than they are, not worthy of existing, that only exist because of THEIR fuckups into destroying themselves for their as said before, selfish reasons, on the scale of billions.So what have we done that's crueler than that?
>>1203906>>1203907>>1203923Before the sundering, people were immortal.This means that every single person that has EVER died across all the shards did so as a direct result of Hydaelyn making them mortal. The Ascians may kill millions in every Calamity, but that's nothing compared to the untold numbers that have perished of their own accord since they were sundered. And ultimately even those the Ascians killed were destined to live a little over a hundred years at most before dying anyway, meaning they simply cut the time of one generation of incarnations short to help future generations.
>>1203934We all return to the lifestream.
>>1203934>Before the sundering, people were immortal.They weren't immortal, they just lived an extremely long time. The first Hades short story talks about it.
>>1203869By reminding him most of those tragedies crueler than any calamities were his, and his gang's fault
Is Alphinaud the worst protagonist in a Final Fantasy game? I can't think of a worse one.
>>1203947Literally the ultimate cope. Imagine simping for a fat crystal bitch so hard that you clap while she divides you 14 times into a gibbering retard. Before the Ascians did the first rejoining humanity couldn't even make stone tools or establish towns, and it was only after the second calamity that they were able to start using primitive magic. Look at everyone in the current world, and ask yourself "what if everyone was seven times more stupid", and you have the world Hydaelyn created.>>1203948They were effectively immortal. We have no idea how old the old world actually was, so just because people's souls were passing on that doesn't counter the point. Their lifespans only needed to be twice as long to be twice as good, and they probably lived hundreds or thousands of times as long, if not more, so all that length of time when compared to the countless deaths they'd have suffered in Hydaelyn's world in the same span of time even in completely ideal conditions (which it fucking wasn't), FAR outweighs the deaths the Ascians directly caused.>>1203951His gang is literally the only reason people aren't eating rocks and painting themselves with their own shit.
Does hide helmet hide it for everyone who sees you or just yourself?
>>1203979>Imagine simping for a fat crystal bitch so hard that you clap while she divides you 14 times into a gibbering retard.Imagine simping for the Ascians who've been caught in a straight lie on that front. Sundered lives created things the Ascians wouldn't have ever even dreamed of, up to and including time travel. All three unsundered were outsmarted, outmuscled, and outmaneuvered at every turn by creatures that by all rights should not have been physically capable of doing those things. There's nothing actually suggesting they're any better on any front except sheer aetheric capacity.
>>1203995Hides it for everyone.
>>1203998My follow up question is why does Emporer's New Hat exist
>>1203996>Sundered lives created things the Ascians wouldn't have ever even dreamed of, up to and including time travelAfter being over halfway rejoined. And getting assistance from fucking alien technology and a god of time.>All three unsundered were outsmarted, outmuscled, and outmaneuvered at every turn by creatures that by all rights should not have been physically capable of doing those things.Is it really that embarrassing of a loss to get beaten up by eight people who are all half as good as you? If WoL beat Hades 1v1 you might have a point, but he had to rejoin with Ardbert just to contain the light and then had to team up with seven other people to win.
>>1204003Just rounding out the set, I guess. Most likely it only exists so that you can hide retainer hats and helms.
>>1204005>After being over halfway rejoined. And getting assistance from fucking alien technology and a god of time.The god of time was a primal summoned by sundered creatures. Why couldn't those smartypants ancients conceive a primal of time?
>>1204005>After being over halfway rejoined.The First had the Ronkans, who achieved the heights of the Allagans in totally different fields and pioneered white and black magic spells that still see use in Norvrandt over a thousand years later. Beq Lugg is the foremost expert on souls in the entire XIV universe.>And getting assistance from fucking alien technology and a god of time.They had zero help from Alexander himself, they recreated him using magitek. Omega's principles needed to be understood for the Rift hopping to be work, it's hardly even relevant that he did help because it would have been useless information if they didn't understand what the information was and how it could be applied.>who are all half as good as you?Not even; WoL is the only member of the assembled party that's more than 1/14th of a whole creature. This isn't even getting into that they're all still mortal creatures at the end of the day and in sheer theory should not, if whole themselves, be on the same level as an unsundered Amaurotine. The Amaurotines are likened to gods and angels. A 14/14 hyur will still be a 14/14 hyur, a 14/14 roegadyn will still be a 14/14 roegadyn. Sundering matters much, much, much less than the Ascians make it out to. This is an actual coping mechanism on Emet-Selch's part.
>Lunar BahamutSo is Tiamat finally going to free herself from her cage in a fit of rage?
>>1204029Nah she's gonna beat herself up until the end of time. Midgardsormr gets to watch as all of his children are mentally ill even by dragon standards.
>>1204029that would be kino
>>1204013>Loghrif's specialty is time magic>she never thought to make a time travel primal
>>1204042She was too busy doing Emissary shit until Elidibus came along
>>1204029>>1204030>>1204032i hope they keep the dragon language and not enlgish.
>>1204013>The god of time was a primal summoned by sundered creatures.Anon Alexander's entire story is a paradox in that he is responsible for his own concept and summoning.>Why couldn't those smartypants ancients conceive a primal of time?Because Alexander's conclusion is that his own existence is self-defeating and serves no purpose. His technology and ability to influence time only became relevant with the inclusion of alien technology.>>1204013>The First had the RonkansAnd it's implied the Ascians are responsible for the rise of their civilization as well.>They had zero help from Alexander himself, they recreated him using magitek. Omega's principles needed to be understood for the Rift hopping to be work, it's hardly even relevant that he did help because it would have been useless information if they didn't understand what the information was and how it could be applied.And your point? They had access to technology far beyond their own means. Being able to understand it at all is impressive, but again they were already more than halfway rejoined and had a huge step up at that.>Not even; WoL is the only member of the assembled party that's more than 1/14th of a whole creature.Assuming everyone WoL summons against Emet and Elidibus come from shards other than the Source, 9/14+7/14=16/14>14/14. Meaning the entire group together added up to being superior to Emet and Elidibus.Lahabrea fucked himself up over the millennia and WoL's party would have been from the Source, so it's no contest.>A 14/14 hyur will still be a 14/14 hyur, a 14/14 roegadyn will still be a 14/14 roegadyn.Why should anyone believe that a fully rejoined individual would be no different because of their race? We're led to believe the Amaurotines were so powerful and advanced because of their nature as being unsundered, not because of their biology.
>>1204056>They had access to technology far beyond their own means.>And it's implied the Ascians are responsible for the rise of their civilization as well.Irrelevant, the Ronkans were achieving feats that the Source would have ascribed to Mhach, Amdapor, and Allag in the fields of black and white magic and manipulation of native life. They are 1/14th and all three preceding civilizations had more shards than the Ronkans did. Emet-Selch describes his role as getting the ball rolling for the empire and then letting them do whatever until they're ripe for a Calamity. It can't be argued at all that none of these civilizations haven't been great in their own right or that any achievements they've attained is solely because of Ascian influences. Ascians lay the patchwork and then sit back, everything after is done by the mortals.>but again they were already more than halfway rejoinedThe Ascians didn't even consider time travel as a possibility while the goblins were all over it, summoning Alexander as a time-traveler to enforce a future that was solely a goblin paradise. Soul density does not matter anywhere near as much as the Ascians claim it does, you'd be hard pressed to find any evidence at all that Ardbert and his crew were less intelligent or powerful than Source life while having seven fewer shards. Ascians would not be defeated across the XIV universe if they were completely and inarguably better, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.>Meaning the entire group together added up to being superior to Emet and Elidibus.Elidibus was super-charged with the faith of a metric assload of Warriors of Light and this isn't even getting into how backwards it is to treat sundered status as a raw, flat power-level when the setting and the fact that all three unsundered Ascians are dead flies entirely in the face of that interpretation.>a fully rejoined individual would be no different because of their race?Why wouldn't they be? All the races are different.
>buy casual coffer for 3mil>sell chest and shoes for 4mil totalexpert player driven xiv economy at work
>>1203869You can't, but you also can't just lie down and die like the ascians want you to. To cause a calamity is to end a shard which is to end a literal reality full of life.
>>1204056>Why should anyone believe that a fully rejoined individual would be no different because of their race? We're led to believe the Amaurotines were so powerful and advanced because of their nature as being unsundered, not because of their biology.Why would a roegadyn or a miqo'te or an elezen with fourteen shards be anywhere near the same level as an amaurotine if they're absolutely nowhere close at 8 of 14? The only difference between G'raha Tia before and after his own calamity and rejoining is that his soul is a shard denser, his capabilities, mental acuity and physical strength didn't increase. It just makes your soul denser until it's as dense as it's "supposed" to be, you don't have a soul anywhere near the level of an amaurotine even if you have them all. You wouldn't have a watered down Echo if you did, you'd have the whole thing that amaurotines did which is supposedly much better.
>>1204082>They are 1/14thThey're 7/14th. Hydaelyn's power is splitting, and she split the Source seven times. Therefore the First, as the first shard, is half of the original world, 7/14th.>Emet-Selch describes his role as getting the ball rolling for the empireWhich included giving them access to advanced magicks and technologies, as evidenced by the Allagans and Garleans.>The Ascians didn't even consider time travel as a possibilityThey've been coordinating rejoinings across the rift for 12,000 Source years, which necessitates having a certain degree of control of time given it's unstable and shifting nature between shards.>while the goblins were all over it, summoning Alexander as a time-traveler to enforce a future that was solely a goblin paradiseAlexander is responsible for his own summoning, not the Goblins. He created the Enigma Codex, not them.>Ascians would not be defeated across the XIV universe if they were completely and inarguably better, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.They were winning for 12,000 years until the Source was more than halfway rejoined.>Elidibus was super-charged with the faith of a metric assload of Warriors of LightWoL is called the eikon-slayer for a reason. Also the Echo and Blessing of Light are bullshit OP and literally allow someone to exceed all of their limits as the situation calls for.>Why wouldn't they be? All the races are different.Again, we've never been given reason to think the Ancient's power and intelligence was a result of their biology rather than the composition of their souls.>>1204103>end a literal reality full of lifeAll it does is send those souls and that aether back to the Source to be rejoined. The only thing lost is the specific history of that shard, and Hydaelyn herself did that to the unsundered world.
>>1204132>They're 7/14th. Hydaelyn's power is splitting, and she split the Source seven times. Therefore the First, as the first shard, is half of the original world, 7/14th.?????
>>1204123>Why would a roegadyn or a miqo'te or an elezen with fourteen shards be anywhere near the same level as an amaurotine if they're absolutely nowhere close at 8 of 14If a structure has all of it's pieces it's far stronger than it's composite parts. You may as well be asking why a window pane is stronger as a whole window than if parts of it are shattered off.>The only difference between G'raha Tia before and after his own calamity and rejoining is that his soul is a shard denser, his capabilities, mental acuity and physical strength didn't increase.G'raha's overall ability certainly increased compared to how he was in the past, when he was merely an archer.In fact arguably everybody on the Source is far stronger now than they were pre-seventh calamity.
>>1204148Not him, but Hydaelyn's power is described by Emet-Selch as dividing things in half. If the First was the first shard split away from the whole Source then it should have soul density equivalent to 7/14.
>>1204152bro she slammed zodiark once which resulted in 14 worlds. You think she wwe drop kicked him 14 times???
>>1204163>bro she slammed zodiark once which resulted in 14 worlds.Not according to Emet-Selch, who describes her striking "blow after blow".>You think she wwe drop kicked him 14 times???Yes, her power is dividing things in half, not dividing things in 14.
>>1204152but that doesn't make any sense, are you saying that the 13th shard's soul density is supposed to be 0.013671875/14?
>>1204171>but that doesn't make any senseThat's how it was described.>are you saying that the 13th shard's soul density is supposed to be 0.013671875/14?Apparently
>>1204132>They're 7/14thAnon that makes zero sense and goes against the fact there's fourteen shards. The Void would have so little aether as to be unmentionable if that were how it worked.>Which included giving them access to advanced magicks and technologies, as evidenced by the Allagans and Garleans.He points them in their direction and then pulls his hands away. The Allagans got into the fields of aetherochemistry due to R&D and reverse-engineering of Omega causing a technological explosion, Emet-Selch had nothing to do with the Allagan's heights. In light of Goug I sincerely doubt that he gave Garlemald the idea for magitek or ceruleum either, the Garleans as a race have been inventing to make up for their inability to use aether for thousands of years.>They've been coordinating rejoinings across the rift for 12,000 Source years,This isn't time travel.>Alexander is responsible for his own summoning,Alexander keeps the time-travel components of his summoning rolling but he doesn't summon himself, the goblins and Xaela are the ones who invoke the actual summoning magic.>They were winning for 12,000 yearsOn and off, losing half the time. Elidibus fights them as false-flags if no WoL shows up naturally, the heroes on the First accidentally charge the shard with too much light because they weren't accounting for Ardbert becoming a Warrior of Light, they got the ball rolling on the Void but didn't stop it because they didn't know they needed a concurrent Calamity on the Source.>WoL is called the eikon-slayer for a reason.Make up your mind if you want to wank about power levels, WoL went against him with 9/14 + 7/14 vs. 14/14 + a metric assload of prayer, 12k years of experience, and FF4's party as phantoms.>we've never been given reason to think the Ancient's power and intelligence was a result of their biologyWe have Emet's word that it wasn't the case, one of the most powerful members of his race, and he's dead to seven shards and WoL. Makes no sense.
>>1204149>In fact arguably everybody on the Source is far stronger now than they were pre-seventh calamity.they demonstrably aren't if anything on the first can put up any kind of fight against superior grorious source beings, this is especially the kind of thing societies like sharlayan would note and would come up from time to time in dialogue

Goug was advanced at some point before Garlemald, but their civilization fell and they fled to Ilsabard, they regressed quite a bit.>This isn't time travel.Considering the time-shifting nature of the rift it kind of is. We literally see them employ time magicks at multiple points, the big innovation was employing Omega's technology to traverse the rift to appear on the First by taking advantage of it's time-twisting nature.>the goblins and Xaela are the ones who invoke the actual summoning magic.Summoning magic that's been proliferated throughout the world by the Ascians.>because they weren't accounting for Ardbert becoming a Warrior of LightWeren't they? The plan was to instigate the Flood through Cylva's death.>Make up your mind if you want to wank about power levelsLike I said, the Echo and Blessing are bullshit OP. Even then WoL would have failed if he wasn't so rejoined, his aetheric density almost doubled by rejoining with Ardbert.>and he's dead to seven shards and WoLSeven shards and WoL could easily equal one Hades.
>>1204183>this is especially the kind of thing societies like sharlayan would note and would come up from time to time in dialogue>trusting Sharlayniggers>>1204185>Nobody's simpping for Hydaelyn you dumb fuck we just don't feel like meekly bowing our heads and letting these puffcloud motherfuckers sacrifice everyone and everything for their own desires.Right, so instead everyone should just die billions of times for Hydaelyn.We still don't even fucking know why they decided to sunder the world to begin with, so I don't see why so many people are happy to defend the status quo she created.
>>1204213>Nigger the Void is called the Void because it's fucking VOID of aether.It's not void of aether, the aether is all tilted toward Darkness. The Void is a misnomer that Eorzean scholars mistakenly labeled it. They knew the monsters like bombs and imps were alien to the world, but didn't know they were coming from. They simply decided they were traveling across the Void (aka the Rift) from various other worlds and called them voidsent. So when it was figured out that they were all coming from one specific world, that world was named the Void.
>>1204213>because it's fucking VOID of aether.It's void of aether because it fell completely to dark/umbral aspect after the Ascians fucked up, did you skip over that part? It cannot possibly have that low an amount of aether if it can still sustain pseudo-life like the voidsent demons, and definitely not with Gaia and Mitron planning to unfuck the Source by pumping excess First light into it to cancel out the Thirteenth's dark. They call it the Void because they were pretty sure it was the void between dimensions (the thing Exdeath is after in FF5) that all the demons were coming from.>Considering the time-shifting nature of the rift it kind of is.Let's skip over the Alexander recreation that's sitting in the Crystal Tower's basement which expresses the exact same abilities to travel through time as the original, and G'raha's own repeated statements that he traveled through time and the Rift. It can't be this thing the characters all said happened, it must be this other, more convoluted thing. Emet wouldn't have cared if they were just abusing a Rift loophole, they can already do that themselves.>Summoning magic that's been proliferated throughout the world by the Ascians.You're getting off-track of your own point.>Weren't they?No. Their plan was to keep the First on the very edge of tipping over into light, which Ardbert fucked up by becoming a Warrior of Light. The plan wasn't recoverable on the First until Minfilia showed up, it would have been a light mirror of the Void.>the Echo and Blessing are bullshit OP.Midgardsormr can strip WoL of the blessing if he feels like and I'd hesitate to describe him as being stronger than Ascians, and the Ascians' Echo is superior to a sundered Echo, these don't matter.>his aetheric density almost doubledNo it didn't, G'raha's density didn't almost double. He is one shard more dense than he was before. This isn't how it works, it's not how it's stated to work.>Seven shardsShould have been squashed easily. Weren't.
>>1204213>Weren't they? The plan was to instigate the Flood through Cylva's death.Cylva's death was supposed to deny Ardbert a crystal. They wanted to slowly tilt it, not bring a Flood.
>>1204225>It's not void of aether, the aether is all tilted toward Darkness.????????
>>1204266It's still there, we travel on platforms that contain aether in WoD. But most of it is condensed into the Cloud of Darkness and other high-ranking voidsent. We also know that last part about the mutation is wrong. Voidsent are twisted by the Dark aether the same way Sin Eaters are born, and the high ranked voidsent are ex-heroes who got corrupted by lucavi stones.
>>1204242>It's void of aether because it fell completely to dark/umbral aspect after the Ascians fucked up, did you skip over that part? It cannot possibly have that low an amount of aether if it can still sustain pseudo-life like the voidsent demons, and definitely not with Gaia and Mitron planning to unfuck the Source by pumping excess First light into it to cancel out the Thirteenth's dark. They call it the Void because they were pretty sure it was the void between dimensions (the thing Exdeath is after in FF5) that all the demons were coming from.Don't ask me how it makes sense, they took readings of the Void and literally found no aether.>Let's skip over the Alexander recreation that's sitting in the Crystal Tower's basement which expresses the exact same abilities to travel through time as the original,It's a giant fucking calculator working in conjunction with Omega's technology to use the nature of the rift to manipulate time.>You're getting off-track of your own point.The primary point there is that it's really not any mortal life that's responsible for Alexander's creation.>No. Their plan was to keep the First on the very edge of tipping over into light, which Ardbert fucked up by becoming a Warrior of Light. The plan wasn't recoverable on the First until Minfilia showed up, it would have been a light mirror of the Void.Elidibus planned the entire thing though, that's why he sent the WoDs to the Source and did all that shit with Urianger to save the First so it could be rejoined.>and I'd hesitate to describe him as being stronger than AsciansHe probably is.>and the Ascians' Echo is superior to a sundered Echo, these don't matter.The Ascians have greater control of the Echo. That doesn't mean WoL's Echo can't equal theirs in the capacity of breaking limits.>Should have been squashed easily. Weren't.As we've discussed, all shards are not created equal. The point is in the end they helped give WoL the upper hand.
>trying to prog e10s>mfw fucking shadow servantbros help...i dont know my left from my right apparently
>>1204278Elidibus didn't plan the Flood of Light, they tell you it was a fuck up. He was panicking and went to Urianger to help him keikaku Hydaelyn into stopping it.
>>1204268>It's still there, we travel on platforms that contain aether in WoD.They literally found there to be no traces of aether in the Void. If anything this supports my point, because if any exists there it exists in such an incredibly low density that the people of the Source cannot even detect it, which is consistent with the idea that it always had the least as the last shard to be divided off the Source.
>>1204278>It's a giant fucking calculator working in conjunction with Omega's technology to use the nature of the rift to manipulate time.Omega's technology manipulates the Rift to move between shards, the Tycoon is the actual time-travel part. Why would they make a giant edifice of Alexander that demonstrably manipulates time in the fight against it if it didn't actually travel through time? Why would G'raha Tia repeatedly mention it took a lot of time and work for the doomed Source to send him off through time if he didn't actually need to travel through time and he was just slingshotting across the Rift in an extremely specific way? Your headcanon is a much bigger headache than the game's actual explanation. That's not what happened and that's not what anyone that talks about it states to have happened. That's not even what the Tales from the Shadows states to have happened.>Elidibus planned the entire thing though,He wouldn't have needed Urianger's help if everything was going according to keikaku, stop huffing paint.>The Ascians have greater control of the Echo.Their Echo is better. They didn't even know the Echo did anything special until they needed to cheat death with the Sundering. Emet Selch's tempering to Zodiark still allows him to work against Zodiark's interests, or at least the interests of his other two unsundered, and Zodiark is a primal so powerful that he could temper straight through the Echo when he was summoned.>As we've discussed, all shards are not created equal.They have to be, or else they'd have probably first tried to join the First because it was the most aether-rich. Or else none of the Warriors of Light summoned from other shards would have actually mattered when Elidibus summoned them en masse. Or else Elidibus wouldn't have summoned several to help him in his fight. Or else G'raha Tia would have gotten an insane power boost, that he didn't get in the story. The Void wouldn't have been teeming with life.

>>1198876I'd have to be a type A Lalafell because the one time my group of friends considered playing the only thing I wanted to do was play a roided out Lalafell shithead. I'm sure its a thoroughly unoriginal idea
>quest about helping a dwarf with a stutter overcome his fear of greeting peoplewho wrote this. its a real tearjerker to be hoenst.
>>1204295>if he didn't actually need to travel through time and he was just slingshotting across the Rift in an extremely specific way?Because the result of that "extremely specific way" was time travel, it was manipulating the rift to appear on the First after the Flood. Time and space are the same thing and the fucked up nature of the rift in conjunction with Omega's ability to traverse it, Alexander's infinite processing power, and the CT existing as a massive aether battery allowed them to get where they needed to go.>Their Echo is better.They can control it better. WoL may not have their ability with it but that doesn't mean his can't match theirs situationally.>They have to be,Why? Because they would target the First first? Maybe it makes more sense NOT to jump head-first into trying to rejoin the largest reserve of aether first when you don't know how it'll turn out. In that situation it makes perfect sense to try with the least aether-dense shard to begin with, so if you fuck up you don't lose that much. In that same vein it makes perfect sense to try for rejoining the First NOW, because the seventh calamity went extremely smoothly and the Source was ready for another rejoining in record time.>Or else none of the Warriors of Light summoned from other shards would have actually mattered when Elidibus summoned them en masse.They didn't though? We kill them as trash. They were summoned primarily to help fuel the faith for his Primal before anything else.>Or else G'raha Tia would have gotten an insane power boost, that he didn't get in the story.He went from an archer to a PLD/BLM/WHM multiclass using aetherial instruments alone.>The Void wouldn't have been teeming with life.We have no idea what the minimum aetherial density for life is supposed to be.
>>1204339alright why does the tycoon have alexander's time powers if they didn't actually need time powers, this is getting fucking exhausting to read through
>>1204341>alright why does the tycoon have alexander's time powers if they didn't actually need time powers,Because it's using Alexander's technology and possesses the computational power to use it for self-defense.
>>1204344that's really stupid and unnecessary and ignores literally every character calling it time travel
>>1204346Anon time and space are the same thing, space travel is time travel and the rift is some fucked up space.
>>1204350shards occupy the same physical space and are separated by dimensional layers, "time = space" doesn't apply to this game's metaphysical rules and you're a shithead arguing your canon as fact for a hundred posts
>>1204350"Time and space are the same thing" said absolutely nobody in the Alexander storyline
>>1204355>and are separated by dimensional layersYes.Space.Why are you being so retarded?
People being stupid on purpose gets really fucking frustrating in these threads. And it's not even been a week since the last content patch.
>>1204359your entire headcanon falls apart because that's not how time travel works in the alexander story and the idea that they gave the tycoon time powers by completely recreating alexander just to do absolutely nothing with them beyond a self defense system is so mindblowingly fucking stupid that this is the last (You) you're going to get from me, i hope you get aroused from being a shitbrained idiot for fun so that you can gargle your own cum and choke to death on it
>>1204350Why wouldn't the Ascians just slingshot themselves back in time and stop the sundering if they could abuse the time differences between shards in the Rift?
Is there a mod that lets you rename your abilities?
>>1204375Might be macro plugin tools that could do the job but nothing that I actually know about for what you're after. I tried to do it with normal macros to rename all my BLM spells into a-ra-ga-ja for series tradition but it was too laggy.
>>1204368>your entire headcanon falls apart because that's not how time travel works in the alexander storyI'm pretty sure you can't explain the nature of how Alexander's time powers physically work beyond "he needs aether to do it.">>1204371Why do you think the rift would exist prior to the Sundering...?

is PLD more fun than GNB? I'm a caster main who uses GNB as my tank for roulettes, but im finding GNB kind of boring.
>>1204444You have more unique actions through spells and the damage rotation is roughly as involved. Tanks are tanks are tanks though. PLD should be more familiar since it turns into a mini Black Mage at higher levels.

>>1204729She also spends literally her entire fight bemoaning that she's corrupted, shunned, and hated by everyone that knows her, otherwise necromancy is almost exclusively for voidsent who don't have any real problems with manipulating the dead
>>1204721Dark Knight is just as evil as necromancer would be.
>>1204741Dark Knight doesn't have you turn corpses into bombs
>>1204746It would if it could.
>>1204746technically you defile a corpse anyway and the people who're aware are somewhat okay with it
>>1204760All you do is give Fray a post-mortem handjob and take his wallet.
>>1204767>post-mortem handjobthat falls under the definition of defilement
>>1204770It's just bros helping bros, Sidurgu would've done the same.
Why are the relic weapons so weak compared to poetic weapons? They have a lot of materia slots which is nice, but still. Itd be nice if they were close in ilevel.
>>1204382The Rift is a consistent element of the FF series. It doesn't only exist between the shards of XIV's world.
>>1205012Relic weapons are mainly for catch up, but they're always the strongest weapons at the end of an expansion.
>>1205189This expac doesnt have an end date unfortunately. I wish they were like, 515 at least. 525 preferably. Like, not the highest ilevel but damned close. They are signficantly worse than the eden weapons.
>>1205193The next Bozja step in a few weeks will probably bring them to 525. But the final Bozja stage will bring them to 535 in 5.5 and they should be better than Eden then. And then we'll get the usual seething from people that didn't grind it out beforehand.
>>1205012They only become the best at the very end, but the zodiac weapons were good enough in multiple steps to make raiders complain because someone who didn't raid could end up with a much better weapon.
hows healing in this game? looking to start a white mage
>>1204607>melee healerso is this needing run over to people to heal them or is their spammable only usable from melee range?either way, lame
>>1205456Its a healer who builds resources with melee attacks
>>1205414you heal but you also have to maintain dpsWHM and AST are usually the best healers because they have a lot of oGCD heals wich means they can keep attacking while tossing a heal once in a while to the tankSCH bros...
>>1205468Just let the fairy do it while you spam ruin.
>>1205465>>1205456Would be interesting to have a dps that smart heals based on melee damage. Like mistweaver in WoW used to be. Would have to have some directional heals of course, but overall getting signficant healing while beating the shit out of an enemy would be cool.

>upcoming broadcast postponed due to 'ronaxivbros...
>>1205557You lie, but I fully expect a delay for both the reveal next month and patch 5.5 because Japan now has super coronachan to deal with.
quick question how many FFX references are in XIV
>>1205557They only delayed the broadcast, not the expansion trailer.
>>1205571there is some novelty stuff like outfits and pets, but i forget if there is anything more subtle or more integral to the game's lore
>>1205571Not a ton. There's the Tidus/Yuna gear and the girl party member minions. Occasionally magitek is called machina. Sephirot references Jecht, although Jecht himself is a reference to FFVI's Fiend. Amaurot is a nod to Zanarkand. There's a small reference to a primal called Valefor but it's never seen.
>>1205563They already announced it, its because of the state of emergencyhttps://twitter.com/FF_XIV_JP/status/1349944528602468359?s=19
>>1205620Fugg, but now I'm curious since I assumed it was going to mainly be fluff around the teaser trailer and maybe one of the new jobs. They're still giving us the hard info the same day but delaying the ongoing stream.

You know I hadn't even realize we are only like three weeks away from the expansion announcement until they announced the delay, like holy shit. It's gonna be real fucking hard for them to top the ShB trailer though that thing is a fucking masterpiece.

>>1206295As long as Alisaie stops being mistaken for her brother I'm sure she'll be happy.
>>1206333>muh daddy issues in 6.0 i hope fucking not.
>>1206330No chance, Mikoto is two tiers of side content deep, one of which is field content of all things. It'd be like making Ejika a main character and making clearing BA mandatory to the MSQ.Literally a higher chance for her twin sister.
>>1206320nah. arenvald and fordola are going to be in the boring as shit padding uldah arc in 5.5
>>1206343.5s usually aren't padding, but lead directly into the next expansion. So if they're in .5 I'd expect them to be in the expansion.

>>1205944>ever ironing out the spaghetti
>>1205620I'm more surprised that they were even going to have an audience for the announcement thing. I figured it would be a pre-recorded thing like so many devs are doing now.Guess SE is desperate to get back to normal though. Was just a couple weeks ago they announced some kind of art exhibition or something and then had to cancel less than a week later. You'd think after nearly a year they would just stop planning events that involve an in-person audience.
>>1206591>Guess SE is desperate to get back to normal though.It's especially surprising since Yoshida is on-record as being extremely on board with the whole work-at-home schema they have now, to the point of confirming it'd be a permanent option for SE employees.
>>1206591At least we can still overanalyze yoshi's t-shirt
>>1206637I think in this case they are wanting to re-establish the sense of community closeness and interaction that they've had. This 14 hour broadcast was meant to be a replacement for the Fanfests, so it was meant to have a lot of community oriented events and such in it.
why is warrior so unfun?
It'd be great if there were public teating servers for the next expansion.
>>1206591having an audience react to trailers is very good marketing.>wow look at how excited people are for this expansion, new job, story etcjust releasing a trailer to youtube isnt as exciting for customers

Why is 14's storytelling so generally bad? Is it because it simultaneously pushes a "chosen one" story which is a bad idea in an MMO while having your chosen one character mostly do servant's work for the scions?
>>1207129>while having your chosen one character mostly do servant's work for the scions?This is exactly where all of the kino comes from though.
>>1207023Guy who originally posted it here, WAR got dismissedI was the PLD
>>1207129you aren't THE chosen one till stormblood. you're just regular 'special' till you spearhead Operation Archonyou probably haven't played the game, but you start out as an adventurer with no experience and crawl your way up
>>1207120>Ardbert over dumb catbased
>>1205414you're gonna hate yourself for playing whm as your first classwhile all classes are dull at early levels, whm stays dull for the entirety of the leveling process
>>1207129>it simultaneously pushes a "chosen one" story which is a bad idea in an MMO while having your chosen one character mostly do servant's work for the scions?that's the best part. you don't get it.
>>1207140I played ARR when it was new, dude, I barely remember it. Played Heavensward and Stormblood recently.
>>1207129its not bad but i agree that mmo is not a good vehicle for itafter a few initial hiccups in ARR it very much has adopted the identity of being a very "final fantasy" jrpg which is a damned shame since the world and stories are very interestingit also, unlike the rest of the series, has the benefit of expanding officially due to its very nature, however one could argue that the whole structure of the plot is essentially one big, stretched out JRPG story. To compare, at this point in XIV's overall plot, an FFX analogue would be if the party just beat Yunalesca or something
>>1207140Remind me, what was up with there being other WoL like Ysayle? By now with the whole Azem thing we're obviously THE WoL, but I don't remember what's the deal with people like her.
>>1207157There are other people out there wielding the Echo and/or crystals of light. You're just the only person notable enough at this time to get the title in Eorzea. WoL is just a title Elidibus makes sure people start using any time a notable hero shows up to keep that legend alive.
>>1207157Ysayle had the echo and a crystal of light, she was the closest thing to the WoL besides minfilia
>>1207152sorry, i think i accidentally deleted one part of my whole postwhen i said it had its hiccups at the start, it was still trying to follow the WoW formula rigidly at the start, what with having raids and suchNow they havent changed since then but its clear from Heavensward onward that they've attempted to make it a truly "final fantasy" experience of having a blend of rich story and gameplay. We can even see at this point that they've abandoned any desire to cater more to the "hardcore" mmo crowd and focused more on making roleplaying and social devices like the g-pose modes and the various activities available. They've also tied the game's success more to the stories within since shadowbringers was so acclaimed, and i suspect thats where theyre trying to go moving forward
>>1207173yeah as soon as you form the party with estinien, ysasyle, and alphinaud I realized "oh this feels like final fantasy now"
>>1207173>>1207152I guess my problem is that I don't want to roleplay as a chosen one character.
>>1207193Contrary to popular belief, if you're looking to RP, a modern mmo is not the right place for itPlay VR chat or tabletop
>>1207177if theres one thing to remark in hindsight its that it took five years for them to implement trust dungeon techthen again, it was only possible after the success of that five years, and in that time the paradigm was that dungeons were intended to be "multiplayer-only" if possible. But its clear that turning dungeons and patch dungeons into trusts is their way of making it an avenue of story, small difference from if they released nabudis necrohol as a dungeon (though admittedly xiv dungeons are relatively more straightforward).
>>1207231Actual RPing with other players is pretty gay, sure. But getting immersed in a fantasy world is essential for enjoying an MMO.
>>1207260As a "jaded" gamer for pretty much my whole life dating back unironically to the nintendos, I can honestly say that xiv is one of the few games in this decade that i dont regret giving my money to. For the simple fact that the story actively goes out of its way to suck my cock. Do I detest the cash shop additions, and dislike all the other flaws in the game? Absolutely. But until they drop the ball on making me, Warrior of Light, an integral part of a good story, Im paying Yoship and his merry men. Which is more than I can say for the Fallouts and the death strandings and the Cyberpunks and all the other shit ive had the displeasure of playing
Besides the story, which aspect of XIV is the better of the two. End-game raids or the levelling?
>THERE WAS AN INVISIBLE HERD OF DINOSAURS IN KHOLUSIAWHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK
This is the first time I've actually seen one in the MSQ, how many have I missed?
>>1207407I'm surprised they survived this long. Are we still able to fight dinosaurs? I remember there was a long-neck in old-Diadem.
>>1207423there are tyrannosauruses in dravania
I want romances to be added so I can tell Lyse just how much I love her. Then she can stop being neglected by everyone.
can someone check Lyna's breast size? I think she has HUGE breasts that are a 100 on the slider, but I need to test my breast evaluation skills.
>>1207133Good, no room for armchair meta whores in daily roulettes
I play as a girl to unimmerse myself. I play for the skinner box and watch the story as a bystander rather than as part of it.
>>1207507what race of female
>>1207507sounds like any time the story focuses on (You) will be hard to reconcile with attempts at moving out of it
>>1207519Are you a grey cat yes or no?
>>1207396End-game raids. Leveling is miserable until 70.Raids for the most part are always good, there's too little of them though.
>>1207396You've gotta be kidding right? FFXIV leveling is complete garbage if we're separating it from the story which is very hit and miss. It's the raids which are pretty alright.
What should I do with my DoH classes at level 50+? There seems to be a massive jump in the stats that I need to be able to make things that even a decent chance at being HQ, and like every class quest wants HQ stuff. Am I missing something here or am I just supposed to struggle and rely on low RNG chances to get HQ stuff?
>>1207761Yes, HW was really dumb when it came to crafters and gatherers
>>1207761>powerlevel a DoH with ishgard restoration shit to 70>buy that 64 DoH gear since it's cheap>dont bother with accessories or belt>farm crafter scrips>buy handking shit for 70>play the marketboard game>buy aesthete gear for your 80 crafters

>Limsa's finally straightening itself out, and have even prepared for life without raiding Garleans and their neighboursNeat, Ul'dah's issues have already been somewhat dealt with, I wonder when the plot will focus on Gridania then?
>>1207877That'll be an interesting one since most of their problems are "the elementals will kill us all, otherwise we wouldn't care."
>>1207888They also have that whole xenophobic dicks thing, and are still feuding with the moon cats and negro elves problem to this day, though they tend to only tackle that in sidequest and not the main story like the other two city states
>>1207007They'll still get that. It'll just be in the form of youtube reaction videos that will flood my fucking recommended for weeks.
>>1207973It's surprising how little Gridania's racism and intolerance rarely actually comes up in its story, it's dealt with more in sidequests and even the class quests for ARC, CNJ and LNC than it is in the main story. The Ixal are about as far as it goes for MSQ.
>>1207877Never, Gridania is oh so very lame
>>1207396You kidding? Raids. Leveling without having the MSQ to string you along is painful. Made worse by multiplying it by how many jobs you level.The best part of getting all jobs to 80 is only needing 10 each when the cap goes up again so you can get back to using them again instead of having some floating around in their 50s or 60s and being unusable for anything fun.
>>1208043It's because all of the city-states were made more family friendly for ARR. They wanted the world to be more welcoming I guess. Same reason the PGL guild is no longer a group of Ala Mhigan thugs collecting debts for Teledji.
>>1207396Going to echo the sentiments or the other anons and say that while XIV has many ups, the leveling is absolutely not one of them. In fact I'm amazed its still as bad as it is this expac. I suspect SE left it awful on purpose because they're making bank out of selling job passes to suckers on mog station.
>>1208067ARR PGL quests are kino at leastshame about MNK
>>1207001they kind of screwed it when streamlining it from HW -> SB, so instead of just tweaking it, they reworked it, the rework actually made the whole job completely brainlessI miss wrath stacks, giving every single job a gauge, regardless of whether or not they needed it was a mistake
>>1208087how can you improve leveling?
>>1208104>Remove MSQ roulette because its a complete waste of time, this shit should have been reworked into a solo story instance fucking years ago.>At least double if not triple the amount of XP you get out of every roulette.>Dramatically increase the amount of XP you get out of doing normal raid roulette and level X dungeons so they're actually worth doing.>Dramatically increase the amount of XP you get out of doing job quests so you almost get a full level every time you complete one, just like they already did with crafters.This would already be a nice start.
>>1208120But how will people shitpost about Prae if they don't have to do it for MSQ?
>>1207814>accidentally get other dps killed>he fucking flips out that I ruined his parse>he seethes about it afterwards and brings it up just to dump on me>other members tell me he was talking shit about me all week>raid leader boots them out for being an angry faggot>all because I accidentally killed them onces-sorry bro
>>1208120so, just dump more exp? not opposed to the ideas but I don't see that making it more fun.
>>1208135>>he fucking flips out that I ruined his parsepeople don't really do this, right?
>>1207814>UWU prog>DPS makes a snide remark about another DPS holding the group back after a wipe>Other DPS gets pissy and acts confrontational>Immediately hit countdown without saying anything to try defuse it before another snapback, they shut up immediately for the rest of the night>End up with positive prog at the end of it and it's all water under the bridge after the lead has a chat with thembeing MT with control over countdown has its privileges>>1208169The first DPS in my story is a dancer and whines every time his tech steps don't crit since he parses, though nobody cares much about deaths
>>1208088MNK's way less offensive than PLD I feel. I like 30-50's story being spent complaining how Widargelt was ascribing religious significance to known aetheric processes, and later on how it's important that you're not a MNK, you're a PGL with a MNK soul crystal.
>>1208186MNK quests aren't really bad, but they're not exciting either. Erik holds to 30-50 together, the 50-60 plot is kind of bland, and then 60-70 was actually pretty good but all the Ala Mhigo exposition is ignored completely in the MSQ despite the fact it would've improved the gyr abania portion.
>>1208204The decision to leave something as important as Widargelt being Ala Mhigan royalty out of MSQ was really fucking weird, especially coming off the heels of Heavensward where one of DRG's instructors from ARR was a prominent MSQ NPC.
>>1208240Dude would've just muddied the focus of the plot if they forced him in as his thing about being a secret distant relative of the king is irrelevant to the plot.His family were overthrown ages ago, and the Ala Mhigans are being oppressed by a different bunch of assholes.He can't pull a Hien and unite the people to fight back against the Garleans when everyone still remembers what an absolute cockmongler Theodoric was, and the dangers of monarchy
>>1208240As much as I wish being a monk was relevant to the SB MSQ, it would make no sense. He doesnt want to be connected to his royal blood, the mhigans are trying to break free of garlean rule and shoving in the mad kings nephew would NOT help
I can't believe how ridiculous pentamelding is, why would anyone bother?
>>1208392most people don't except the hyper-autistic, aka the people with the patience to make new crafted-gear tiers every expac
>>1208392for doing one job, it's pretty easybetween clusters, dungeons, raids, beast tribes, spiritbond, etc., you're sitting on hundreds if not a thousand materia by the time you would even think about pentamelding
Did the SHB MSQ give a free mount? ARR gave the magitek armor, HW gave the manacutter and middy, and SB gave the yol, but I don't remember a mount from the SHB MSQ.
>>1208532Yeah, there's a free mount you can get after 5.1 if you talk to Lyna in the Pendants. There's a few scenes that take place in your room and that's when you get the mount
When does the countdown end and housing (extreme) start?
>>1207157WoL is the title give to cool guys with the echo by normal people, but Ysayle, Ardbert and his pal, and finally >you< are special because apart from having the echo you also have hydaelyn's crystals for some fucking reason you havee 6 instead of 1.Azem is THE ADVENTURER, the first one, the og, the true nigga.
are these stats good enough for expert crafts? im trying to do trial synthesis and I can't even reach the lowest tier of collectability
>>1208973NoYou really want more Control, at least 100 more and even then you'll be gambling harder than others for RNG conditions
>>1208919Isn't Ardbert part of a Azem too?
>>1208973For reference the ideal right now is 2757 Craft, 2839 Control, 569 CP
>>1209013Yeah he's the First's shard of Azem's reincarnation. They >imply a couple of times that WoL physically resembles Ardbert and behaves somewhat like him.
>>1209014jesus fuckin christ
>>1208998>>1209014then fuck it im just going to come back during 6.0
>>1209020Yeah, that's what I thought.Also, are line "one brings shadow, one brings the light" in the main theme refers to WoL and Ardbert? It makes perfect sense from their roles in both the source and the first.
>>1209043It's a lot of dualities, most prominently WoL (light) vs. Warriors of Darkness (shadow) from back in Heavensward and the WoD accidentally triggering the Flood of Light that WoL comes in to clean up later, WoL (shadow) vs. the Sin Eaters, Vauthry, et al. (light), WoL (light) vs. Emet-Selch (shadow), WoL (shadow) vs. Elidibus (light).
>>1208919>Azem is called The Wanderer>picked Oschon as my deity when I started six years agoI feel fucking vindicated
>>1209064>disgusting Kain roleplayer>pick Oschon, the Wanderer as patron-deity for being a wandering wind god>double vindicated three or four years after the fact when I picked the one that Azem was misremembered as in occupation>Azeymacucks only get the misremembered name
>>1209064I picked Azeyma when I started the game and about had a stroke when they revealed Azem.Then I was disappointed when I learned it was Azem for everyone.
>>1209064>tfw irrelevant Nymeia fag
>>1209020> They >imply a couple of times that WoL physically resembles Ardbert and behaves somewhat like him. thats gotta be weird if youre a cat girl
>Cylva isn't among Renda-Rae's recreation of her friendsMost interesting part of the quests honestly.
>>1207157>YsayleSpeaking of Ysayle, is it weird I really want each class to get a primal mode at some point?
>>1198876ABCD Lala here
>>1202898The best NIN glam weapons are the basic knives
>>1202009used to be able to dump poetics on demicrystals, but they went from 500 gil a piece to 50
>>1209599So thats what happened to them. Shame.
>>1209624was changed most likely because free accounts can access idyllshire now
