Title: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 05, 2013, 09:29:26 AM
Well obviously if you feel the discussion is worth its own topic be sure to do so, but for all the "random" talk we'll use this board so the the other topics don't get cluttered with it ;)



So with less than a month to go I can't wait for the game. Even managed to get three days off from work to play the game :P

Can't wait either, but i didn't take any day off

Has anybody already picked up the date for the start of the open beta??

Its pretty quite so far and having to calculate in a few days for the early access and a few days bug fixing I would have expected the open beta to start this week, but with no confirmation I'm starting to wonder about that part.

I would get this game as it looks like a FFF! (Fantastic Final Fantasy.... Shh)
But my laptop isn't up to par with playing new PC games, and even if it is released on console, I don't think I'm willing to pay the monthly fee.

I guess I'm sitting this one out. :/

Post by: Sixty on August 06, 2013, 03:05:05 PM
if i am correct, and according to the roadmap (http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/en/FFXIV_2.0_BETA_Roadmap_EN.pdf), its probably going to start next week.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 07, 2013, 11:27:29 AM
Well if they want any time for bugfixing and give out an decent early access (of lets say a minim of 3 days) they should be starting this weekend. I'm just finding the lack of information a bit weird.

But I guess the next live letter will clear things up :P

Tomorrow Yoshi will tell the Phase 4 date.

Here are links for the live letter:

Someone is also translating the whole thing:

Phase 4 and Early Access just got announced. Phase 4 is 17-19th of August (it starts on the 16th for those who already participate in the beta). Early access starts on the 24th. It's a bit of a surprise that the open beta will last only 2-3 days.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 08, 2013, 02:40:43 PM
How is that a surprise? Every Phase lasted few days except for the 3rd one.

They just wanna test the last few things, that's more than enough time. They don't give those days for people to just mindlessly farm to get as many levels as they can before the others (which is what pretty much everyone will do -.-).
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 08, 2013, 02:44:47 PM
They talked about 1-2 weeks (check the roadmap that Sixty posted). I'm also not sure that 3 days will be enough to test pvp and the housing system. Level 20 is the cap, so there shouldn't be too much farming.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 08, 2013, 02:52:37 PM
From the Roadmap:
Quote
* The schedule is subject to change depending on the volume of feedback.
* Phase duration is subject to change depending on the amount of adjustments required.

3 days is plenty of time for these few features. During Phase 1-2 there were the most important/difficult test and those took 1-2 weeks for a reason.

With the character data being transferred over most people already act as if beta phase 4 is another early access moment. Apart from that all the important stuff has already been tested. Housing is just another instance and pvp will be an ongoing thing anyway which can't be tweaked after a week of testing anyway.

Actually kinda glad its just so short, this way I'm not missing out much by not starting till the official release (read early access) ;D

Starting to love this more and more everyday. You should see the amount of hate topics on the fact that beta phase 4 is only 2/3 days and the level cap of 20. People really expected to be able to get a lvl 50 character ready before the early access even started :P
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on August 09, 2013, 02:22:15 PM
that just shows that most people are not used to being beta testers ;)
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 09, 2013, 03:07:17 PM
that just shows that most people are not used to being beta testers ;)
Well ask yourself the next 2 questions:

1) Have you played the beta.
2) Have you applied feedback back on the things you've tested.


Doubt the majority can say yes on both of those and only if you answer yes on both question you can say you've participated in the beta. If both are no you didn't participate at all and if one is yes and the other is no you simply abused the opportunity to play the game for free.
Since I didn't have the time to really commit to part 2 I simply said to myself to not participate at all.

Post by: DragonSLAYER45 on August 10, 2013, 01:33:50 AM
Flipping Tonberry Kings are to be included in A Realm Reborn. Not much of a surprise since it wouldn't be a FF without them, but anyone here who's played FFXI knows how monstrous they were in that game. I can already see the wipes now. Tonberry King uses Everyone's Grudge, and all 24 players die instantly.

Oh yeah, and very menacing sheep. Killer Rabbits that aggro you out of nowhere from FFXI come to mind as well.

Yeah I've been following that discussion after I found that info. Good thing my Legacy 1.0 can obtain the items.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 15, 2013, 10:41:58 AM
So Legacy characters can get them but Beta 4 characters can't ??

I'm at work right now so I can't open the beta forums (no security token at hand), but did they turn something back because I can't see why a 1.0 character can get those item but a Beta character can't ???
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 15, 2013, 11:24:50 AM
Both can get it. The forum won't load for some reason, so I can't quote that post.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 15, 2013, 11:32:29 AM
Yeah both can get it. Even character that you create after linking the items to your account get those.

I just received a mail from SE with the correct dates for beta phase 4: Friday 16 August 2013 at 9:00 GMT to Monday 19 August 2013 at 9:00 GMT.
Figured I might as well post them here, just in case.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 17, 2013, 08:01:18 PM
Seems I've almost found my sweet spot on the settings. Seems running the game on my tv in 1360x768 gives the sweet spot on the font size. Any smaller would create an overlap on the various hotbars and any bigger would prevent me from reading the fine print from my chair :P


Still need to fine-tune the actual graphical settings as I've sometimes got pieces that won't render in time resulting in them being rendered fully green, the'll pop in the right rendering shortly after but that creates this annoying flashing. Guess an decrease of people in the nearby area would help out as well, the servers are currently a bit to crowded for my taste. Especially after having played on a more under-crowded server during 1.0. A quick look on the beta forum however gives me reason to believe that this issue will be resolved shortly as a lot of people only seem to play it because its free right now ::)


BTW Chaos I found out the linkshell lady. Seems she's indeed located in the old Gridania part, was originally looking around the Adventurers' Guild as that is where she was located in 1.0 ;D
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: jake1456 on August 17, 2013, 10:10:46 PM

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 18, 2013, 12:20:33 AM
It's just a fancy name for "Guild".
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: TigersHead on August 18, 2013, 12:38:59 AM
I wonder if we could make a linkshell already or if we have to wait for the full game to be released. Either way i am really excited to start playing on the full game.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 18, 2013, 02:02:54 AM
It's just a fancy name for "Guild".

A Linkshell is in no way or form a Guild. It's simply a chat channel.

The closest thing to a Guild is a Free Company.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 18, 2013, 07:45:23 AM
Its like Oni says. A linkshell is basically another channel in your chat bar to speak instantly to all people in your Linkshell no matter where they currently are. And its already possible to create those.

The real guild like feature is a Free Companion, but you can't create one during the beta as you'll need to be lvl 25 to create one ::)
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 18, 2013, 12:14:25 PM
Isn't a guild pretty much just a chat channel as well? ???
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 18, 2013, 01:08:51 PM
Well I don't know if you're new to MMORPG but a Guild is quite different from a simple Chat Channel.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 18, 2013, 03:16:39 PM
Nah, I'm not new. I've played WoW for about 2 years and the linkshell (in both FFXI and FFXIV) seems pretty similar to WoW guilds.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 18, 2013, 03:35:18 PM
If really WoW Guilds are just giant chats then that game is much worse than I already thought it was.

But I'm pretty sure from what I saw that it's more than that.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 18, 2013, 05:49:52 PM
Now I have to ask... what's a Free Company? Why is it that different from a Linkshell?
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: TigersHead on August 18, 2013, 05:53:48 PM
I think that is for doing Raids and stuff with a group of people.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on August 18, 2013, 06:02:09 PM

The Free Company is the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn take on guilds.  Free Companies are persistent player communities.  They offer a permanent chat channel, like linkshells, but they also come with several other tools (such as forums on the Lodestone).  Free Companies are designed around the idea of structured play within a fixed network of players.

A Linkshell is a Chat Channel. It's for communication only.

Chat Channel =/= Guild

Linkshell =/= Guild

Also in FFXI Linkshells worked differently from FFXIV ones.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: jake1456 on August 18, 2013, 08:52:51 PM
i think only a few MMOs do that
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 18, 2013, 10:10:55 PM
Well a free companion is the ingame funcitonality to set up your guild and appart form a way to group people together it also features a few ingame advantaces.
http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/sys/community/free-company

Especially the open guild crest might come in handy if we have different people with different trades thus all gathering different items ;)
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 18, 2013, 11:04:36 PM
Ah, I see. So basically a guild without features and a guild with features. :P Now that I think about it, WoW guild are closer to Free Comapies. They have a guild bank and you can also make a guild tabard (like the crest).

My ARR character before I got the 3102 error which put an early end to my Phase 4 progress. But I met both Chaos and Jacob yesterday on Odin and we had fun. Although I didn't see Chaos since he was in Limsa Lominsa, but at least now he sees my terrifying toon. :P

You can join one of three free companies once you reach, if I remember correctly, level 30.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 19, 2013, 02:00:57 PM
Aren't you mistaking them for Grand Companies? You can join a Grand Company at lv ~20. You get a quest to join one of them right after defeating Ifrit.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 19, 2013, 02:43:55 PM
No you've got grand companions and free companions.
Both are independent companions, and you can join any free companion independent of the grand companion you joined.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on August 19, 2013, 03:26:32 PM
I know that. Roach said you could join three Free Companies instead of three Grand Companies.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 19, 2013, 03:34:10 PM
Ahh that part. You can only join 1 grand companions, though in this version it will remain possible to switch to another grand companion should you wish to do so. Don't know the levels for ARR, but I guess its around lvl 25~30 that you can start to join them.

For free companions I guess you can only have 1 free companion active, though I'm not sure if you are also limited to only join 1 at a time. The level for free companions should be lvl 25.

Does anybody know the lvl you roughly need to be before you get the airship pass quest. I've already heard its part of the main story line, but I'm just wondering around which lvl it would be. Would love to get full access to the three main cities as soon as posible ;D

i'll be on when i can but i hope it doesn't take more than a week or so to get my internet back up and running

until i can get it back at my house i'll probably have to go to the library or my nearest subway sandwich shop to bum the internets to even get on here to talk with you

anyway, i thought i'd let you know if you go looking for me on there

just send me a PM if we're all gonna group up on a specific server

when you go looking for me on there, i'll have the name CVLTidusZecht

We basically already grouped up on the Odin server. So if you can find a free spot on that server be sure to pick it.



Currently I'm in nearing lvl 19 so I'm probably one weekend away from reaching the point where I can set up an FFTogether Free Companion. Till then we'll have to do it the linkshell alone. I'll be sure to give everybody access to the linkshell should I catch them online, if not Oni should also be able to add people ;D

I've asked 3 days free for the end of this week (Wednesday till Friday), but seeming how there's a deadline I'll have to make by the end of this week I might move those days towards Monday till Wednesday next week. Might even be better as well seeming the current population of the server.

You can only join the linkshell if you've been given the linkpearl by one of the linkshell leaders. This however requires both people online at the same time. The easiest way would be to keep your friendlist updated with the server list posted on his board and at some point a person with the ability to add people will be online at the same time ;D


BTW I've also set up a teamspeak server (currently capable of handling 15 people). Will test it out a bit and then post the settings on this board. Might be easier than working with skype seeming that his way people can freely join/leave the server and its capable of setting up separate channels (so we can switch channels when doing instances in separate groups for example).

Damnit, I might have to start over with a new character. I purchased the collector's edition for pc, but I can't use the registration code for my current service account. So my options are 1). Add a new service account which I will keep playing on, this would force me to make a new character. 2). I keep playing on my current service account, forsaking my CE items (which I could still get with the digital upgrade) and the 30 day time period.

I scoured the internet for another solution, but unfortunately it is impossible to use the registration code for my current service account. Personally I don't mind creating a new character that much, but it's still a bother having to start over from the beginning.

The Manor Sentry got stuck on the stairwell and we couldn't fight the end boss. We even deliberately died to try and reset his aggro, but nothing worked.

Yeah, that's a pretty well known glitch. While fighting him you have to lure him to the top of the stairs so you are on the top floor and beat him there otherwise no final boss.

The Titan fight, big time. The primal boss fights have been spectacular and I'm looking forward to fighting Garuda and Bahamut and Good King Mog in the next patch.

I did fight Odin but it ended up in me not being able to see him or popping in and out and not letting me target him, and then getting one shotted out of nowhere. When I returned, it was a field of corpses.

By the way, I created a character on Odin but my main is on Cactuar. Add Adrian Dragonslayer if any of you get the chance.

Ah too bad that there isn't a shield. Also on the  Summer event, last night i also saw a lvl 5 of the fate Return of the King around Ul'dah. So i assume there are also higher lvles of the fate then the lvl 30 one in Costa Del Sol

I already had around 90% of the wet bomb ashes needed in my inventory so all I needed was 1 more round of that fate anyway. To be honest this event is kinda a let-down compared to the previous events in 1.0, but I'll guess the devs are more worried about the stability of the servers right now.

Taking a break from Dragoon as well as the main story for now and leveling up Marauder and Gladiator so I can become a Warrior. Having a few other linkshell mates doing the same thing right now so I figured I might as well join the fun, and tanking IS a lot of fun. Well, so long as you don't have a Leeroy Jenkins in your party that runs ahead of you, aggros every single mob and then runs around like a chicken without a head while you try to get the mobs off him. Bonus points if they are your party's Healer.

...Oh god, that Toto-Rak run was awful. You truly do run into some... colorful characters through the Duty Finder.

Post by: Da_Cloud on September 12, 2013, 11:48:11 AM
Todays update sure brings some nice changes ;D

Quote
- An auto-logout feature has been introduced wherein characters that are inactive for 30 minutes will be automatically logged out of the game.

The following adjustments and countermeasures have been implemented:

- Changes have been made to the behaviour and mechanics of the enemies found within the “The Wanderer’s Palace” and “Amdapor Keep” dungeons to counteract instances of players running through the dungeon without engaging enemies on the way to bosses.

As advancing through dungeons without defeating enemies is not an intended strategy, we plan to continue making further changes in the future to discourage this type of behaviour.

- In instance dungeon “The Wanderer's Palace” and “Amdapor Keep”, we have increased the amount of Allagan Coins that can be obtained from a treasure chest.

- Reduced the amount of gil required for repair fees and materia removal as follows:

Equipment levels 1-10: 10 gil -> No Change
Equipment levels 11-20: 50 gil -> 30 gil
Equipment levels 21-30: 100 gil -> 60 gil
Equipment levels 31-40: 210 gil -> 120 gil
Equipment levels 41-40: 500 gil -> 200 gil

- Reduced the price of Dark Matter as follows:

Dark Matter G1: 5 gil -> 4 gil
Dark Matter G2: 30 gil -> 12 gil
Dark Matter G3: 70 gil -> 24 gil
Dark Matter G4: 150 gil -> 48 gil
Dark Matter G5: 350 gil -> 80 gil


A temporary countermeasure has been implemented for the following issue:

- For the issue wherein the “Manor Sentries” found within the Haukke Manor dungeon could become stuck and prevent players from progressing through the instanced dungeon, we have changed the original location of “Manor Sentries” to the second floor.

The following issues have been addressed:

- The server would crash under certain conditions during instanced dungeons.
- Characters would sometimes get stuck in the “Binding Coil of Bahamut” dungeon after the party was wiped out.
- Bomb Boulders would sometimes fail to appear in “The Navel (Hard)” battle.
- Certain monsters would sometimes get stuck in the “Amdapor Keep” dungeon.
- The option to return to Home Point would not display when completing a primal battle while being KO’d.
- The entry point for the “The Thousand Maws of Toto-Rak” dungeon was shown in the field in the “Stinging Back” guildhest.
- The “Steel Reign” FATE would sometimes fail to appear.
- Completing the “Behold Now Behemoth” FATE would sometimes cause the server to crash.
- If the player was disconnected during the “Lady of the Vortex” instanced battle, the Duty List, Journal, and Journal Map may display incorrectly.
- The “Notorious Biggs” quest could sometimes be progressed without completing the instanced battle.
- There were occasions where it was impossible to target the snowman in the “Speak Softly to Me” quest.
- The cutscene was cancelled if the player was attacked during the “Lord of Crags” cutscene.
- If a player logged out while being bound by duty within an instance, and logged back in after conclusion of the instance, the free company chat would not work.
- Mog Letters were not sent properly in some instances.
- Certain conditions would sometimes cause the server to crash while interacting with the free company “Company Chest”.
- The “Reach” gauge was sometimes not selectable when in a new, unknown gathering point.
- In some instances, the specified items to collect were incorrect in the “A Relic Reborn” quest.
- In some instances, the specified enemies to defeat were incorrect in the “A Relic Reborn” quest.

And that's why a Free Companion is so useful during the endgame content.

During the Early game you can work yourself around trolls and generally bad people, but during the endgame you'll need to have a fully working party to even stand a chance.

miner is still at lvl 16 my armorer is 28. before i continue to Garuda i first want the Ifrit sword.
________________________________________________________________________________

so i did Ifrit six times now, people keep leaving because either the healer isn't healing good enough or we don't have a black mage. also people cant seem to dodge the plumes and keep stunning them so that i cant stun him on the eruption. i am getting tired of this >:(
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on September 16, 2013, 01:16:02 PM
Must say that my Ifrit runs yesterday went nearly perfect. My first 2 runs ended with people leaving but after that all the other runs ended within 3 attempts (as there are always some people messing up the rotation or can't dodge stuff) :D


BTW it seems SE is planning to update the duty finder in the next patch adding an average gear lvl restriction to some of the end game content. So if the average lvl of your gear is below that lvl you won't be able to enter through the duty finder. Its not sure if this will also apply for custom made parties.

I very rarely go with pugs. I go with my FC and/or people in my Linkshell who are also working on endgame, and a consistent group is much faster than waiting on the Duty Finder, not to mention more fun with friends. (Not looking forward to those AK runs though for Mythology Tomes)

Well, lookie at what decided to drop for me:

(http://i.imgur.com/wRmIH9P.png)

After about 30 or so runs, the Ifrit Harpoon finally dropped. Well, unless you want to count that run where I was outbidded by three (!) Dragoons by a significant amount, but I like to pretend that never happened. So glad I got it now. Now I can stop being a pain in the ass to my Linkshell and FC and continue with the Relic questline and get my Darklight gear. xD

If that's being considered a pain in the ass consider getting an new FC :P



Personally trying to continue with my Garuda drops. So far its mainly been MNK weapon, so if anyone need those join up with me :P
Drops so far:  4 MNK, 1 BLM, 1 SCH

Gotta love the random people you meet though. So far my experience have been that the elitists play far worse in Garuda then new people, so if you ever find both in a party you know whom to babysit and whom will be fine ::)

I can get past those types, but what really get me are the ignorant people. I ask the off-tank in a friendly way if he can tank the red Garuda add in an other corner than the corner where the healers stand, because of the damage output and interruptions they do on us healers. His reply ("Use surecast and heal yourself") >_>   <_<   >_<

My experience with Garuda PUGs so far is that it are usually the kind of people that you find in Mor Dhona which are messing up the party "because they think they know how this fight works". Where most new people pick it up really fast. Had 2 new healers during the runs from last night and all I had to say was "follow my movements" and with both parties we managed to do it in 2 or 3 tries.

Rather play with those kind of people than getting rejected in Mor Dhona for simply having a lvl 38 accessory equipped ::)

The last one cost way to much for the minor stat increases it gives. Though the same might be said for the drop in the dungeon. Mainly want to do the dungeon at least once for the sake of completion and if I get something from it its nice, but it doesn't seem to be a farming place for anything important (would do me more to farm the last 625 tombs so all my acc is at least 60+).

That or I'll spend my first set of Mytology stones on an acc which means I'll only need 250 more tombs for the other acc :P
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

I think you should read difficulty more in the way of (how trash mobs agro).

Then again for all I care CM could use some difficulty boosts, even for a first timer that dungeon is hardly worth anything let alone after countless runs. You'd almost want to mess up the trash mobs to make the dungeon somewhat interesting ::)

So happy it got its much needed buff since the place is an absolute gil mine on my server, and I imagine everywhere else. (Them Bloody Grimoire Bindings)

Would have loved to help you out Oni, but ever since hotfix es of 15 Oct the game keeps spamming 9000 errors towards me. Yesterday I had to reconnect roughly every 15 min and right now I can't even play 1 min before the server kicks me out again :-\

Letter from the Producer, LI (10/16/2013)
Hello again, all you FFXIVers out there! Yoshi-P here, bringing you my fifty-first Letter from the Producer.

It's already been a month and a half since release, and after adding several new Worlds, optimizing the servers, and expanding the data centers, it's full speed ahead for the development team as we prepare for the first big patch.

Looking over data from each World, it's great to see so many players in every level range. Whether it's exploring the nooks and crannies of Eorzea, chasing after FATE, braving through dungeons for Allagan tomestomes, or taking on the Binding Coil of Bahamut, everyone seems to be settling into their own play style as they find their place in the community.

As for myself, I’ve finally defeated Titan in the main story, and am now in snowswept Coerthas. I’ve been going it incognito on the public servers, and it’s been a lot of fun playing with you all. I can never resist a shout for help to venture through lower level dungeons, so it'll probably be a while before I reach end game.

Speaking of end game, I'd like to take a moment to address our players who have completed the main scenario, and are now working to complete relic quests and fight against the hard-mode primals. We realize how difficult it's been to acquire tomestones and have taken measures to alleviate this problem. Although we had a few setbacks necessitating an extension of the planned maintenance on October 15, as well as a subsequent emergency maintenance, we've added additional instance servers for Amdapor Keep as well as the Wanderer's Palace. We've also increased the number of tomestones obtainable in these dungeons, and made adjustments to gil received from within. Patch 2.1 will introduce even more ways to accumulate tomes, so please bear with us.

End game players have also encountered problems with the fifth turn of the Binding Coil of Bahamut. This issue was to be addressed with the patch on October 15, but unfortunately we've confirmed that the problem still persists. Please rest assured we are working diligently to resolve this issue so that players can resume play in this instance as soon as possible.

Our first update will be fairly substantial, and can be divided into three key parts. First and foremost, we want players to have more options to enjoy themselves in Eorzea. We'll be introducing daily quests and treasure hunts for those looking to play solo, and various system adjustments will make it easier to obtain Allagan tomestones of philosophy and mythology with your party mates. You can also expect to see new dungeons, the Crystal Tower, extreme primal battles, and the return of Good King Moggle Mog. There's also housing and the Wolves' Den to look forward to, both of which are being fine-tuned and debugged as we speak.

Second, we'll be implementing feedback from you, the players. Not only will the user interface be updated, but we'll also be adding an item-sort function, item level restrictions on the Duty Finder, the MVP system, and a number of other new features.

Last but certainly not least, we'll be introducing the salon where players can customize character features such as hair and face paint, and a party search function for individual Worlds. This wouldn't be a FINAL FANTASY if it didn't have a story, so expect to see new developments in the main scenario, and perhaps even the return of a certain someone from Version 1.0.

More details will be revealed during the upcoming LIVE letters. I'm planning to host one every month up until the release of 2.1, and I hope you tune in to all of them!

And that’s all from me for today. See you again on October 19, at the ninth Letter from the Producer LIVE!
I've got a feeling our good friend Hildibrand is making its return to Eorzea ;D

Post by: Da_Cloud on November 07, 2013, 02:29:21 PM
Well if we can form a party quickly I'm in, but I generally go to bed around 22:45. So you do the math and you'll figure out that the longer it takes to make a party the less time I have left to try Titan.


That 5% yesterday doe....
Had good fun with it so far though, but I guess that's me not having done Titan that much yet. Basically this was the ~15th time I've entered that chamber in Hard Mode (DF trial runs included) and also the first time I've really seen phase 5.



BTW it seems stunning the stomps hasn't been reported yet (at least a search result on the lodestone forums didn't gave any relevant results). So if we can confirm this being a consistent thing we might do good reporting it on the lodestone page to see if its really a bug or a simply a "hidden" mechanic that we are allowed to use.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on November 07, 2013, 02:38:31 PM
SE already knows about the stun-Tumult. It actually seems it's an "hidden mechanic" that we are allowed to use. Six should also try to flash before the Mountain Buster cause you can completely dodge it.

Also I'll be back at 2200 tonight from Taiji so we can at least get a few try on Titan.

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on November 07, 2013, 05:28:08 PM
Yeah if you use flash you got a chance to avoid it just like if it was an ordinary attack. It's still not guaranted though but completely avoiding a BUSTAH is nice.

okay so, i came online cuz i wanted to lvl blacksmith, got asked by someone on my friends list to help out with Coil 1, apparently they where at the boss. This really sucks since we didn't defeat him and all. Dam annoying boss, people left and stuff, but now i will start at the boss next time. So ill wait for next week to do the coils so it resets. And so i can do it with you guys from the start. not gonna help anyone out anymore.

at least with the coils that is.

1) If you've never actually finished Coil turn 1 I doubt you'll be locked out of that turn. People are repeatedly farming the loot on some turns by never actually completing the specific turn.

2) Why even join a random group for the Coil?? The way the Coil works you'll be better of with a premade group that works based on scheduled runs. Otherwise you'll end up being locked out of certain turns and a group. Resulting in a one way ticked to Mor Dhoma in the hope to find 7 other people that have the same problem as you ::)


If you ask me our best bet for a Coil group would be ...
... to find a secondary tank (Ono ??)
... give Ronald a boost so he gets passed Titan
... find a Bard that wants to join our group (should probably be doable without, but I doubt we'll really want to).
... Fill in any of the remaining dps slots that are left open.
... and last but not least get a fundraising going to give Oniangel a mic :P

i found a guy who was looking for another FC, since the one he is in are apparently assholes. I sent him the linkshell invite. He is a Tank but he still needs to start his relic quest and get DL. So we will see if he fits the profile.

But yeah your right, don't know what i was thinking.

Yeah. Its not like I was trying to talk you down or anything as we've seen you play more than enough, but I can figure it being a hollow victory. But after having gone though quite a lot of parties ourselves I don't really think any of us expected it to beat him that "perfectly".

Then again I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing more of Titan and if not don't worry as the Coil will feature some battles that are far more challenging that Titan will ever be.

I know, but that exact same button has more features than simply a zoom in zoom out. Its also the same button that you'll need to press if you want to auto run for example. Which isn't a fun feature to try out during Titan HM btw ::)

Finally got all the FF13 weapons today and finished the Lightning quest line, decided to put the armor and weapons I received in the Armoire and....

Turns out I can't put them in there. What exactly is the point of the Armoire if we can't put all the Seasonal Event stuff in it? I could only put the Pumpkin Heads from All Saint's Wake in there but not the ghost costumes. Two extra costumes may not seem like a whole lot, but I can't help but feel Square Enix is being extremely stingy with this thing.

Post by: DragonSLAYER45 on November 22, 2013, 09:01:59 PM
So a few things from the Live Letter, and Patch 2.1 is due on Dec. 17th:

- DRGs, BRDs, WARs, MNKs, and BLMs are receiving a few changes in 2.1. (Greased Lightning buff for MNKs. Hooray!)
- Pharos Sirius drops iLv 60 gear, the equivalent of AK gear.
- Allagan gear from Coil is getting a buff to iLv 95. (May or may not have been a mistranslation)
- The Hard Mode dungeons are Haukke Manor and Copperbell Mines. They will drop iLv 60 gear and Allagan Tomestones.
- Good King Moggle Mog XII drops iLv 80 weapons.
- Extreme Mode Primal Fights drop equipment equivalent to Relic+1. I've only seen a screenshot of Titan Extreme but it seems Landslide is now 4-directions while bombs are planted on the field. (http://cdn2.dualshockers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/chrome-2013-11-22-14-52-18-78.jpg) He also Gaol's two people at once and summons mini Titans. (http://cdn2.dualshockers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/chrome-2013-11-22-14-52-27-18.jpg) Already sending shivers down my spine.
- You can only enter Crystal Tower with a party of 8 instead of an alliance of 24 and will require an iLv 55 restriction. (A minimum of WP gear, basically)
- Hard Mode story fight is apparently

- 2k cost to change your hairstyle via the Salon. Hair color, eyebrows, face paint, face paint color, facial hair, facial features, and tattoos will be able to be adjusted.

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: DragonSLAYER45 on November 22, 2013, 09:32:00 PM
Monks are getting the aforementioned buff to Greased Lightning, as well as extra damage multiplier when striking behind an enemy.

Dragoons are getting a faster Jump animation so we can dodge a little better and are not rooted to the ground for a few secs after a Jump.

Black Mages can no longer spam double Flare. (I have never seen this happen, or just wasn't paying attention so I don't know)

Bards are receiving a bit of a nerf to what Cross Class skills they can use. As of right now, BRDs can use LNC/DRG (Blood for Blood), PGL/MNK (Infernal Release) as well as their own class skills. (Raging Strikes/Hawk Eye) This means BRDs can hit of a phenomenal amount of damage while staying mobile and a safe distance away. I think that's really all that needs to be mentioned, they needed a nerf if I had to be honest.

Warriors are getting the world. (Ok, not that extreme. Finally on the same level as Paladins due to the amount of utility we are receiving in 2.1)
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on November 22, 2013, 09:48:09 PM
definitely will lvl warrior soon. Might be handy to be able to switch between PLD and Warrior.
also i predicted the hard mode dungeons. and the hard mode story dungeon as well. can't wait to do that one.

oh and oni mentioned something about us doing the coils before the patch. since the patch is going to make the coils easier? we can easy fill up gaps if we get the whole FC on as a team.

oh and lvl 40 BSM!

The first patch won't decrease the difficulty. They only decrease the difficulty when they add new turns (which is scedualed for patch 2.2 IIRC).

Unless you mean gear-wise, then yeah. I expect the gear you can acquire from the Crystal Tower will make a few people's lives in Coil a lot easier. With the Myth cap also being raised to 450, I imagine Coil being slightly less difficult in 2.1 with Mythology gear. I've only completed Turn 1 with my FC but I can already tell that all Coil boils down to is mechanics and coordination, especially with Caduceus. Gear really won't save you if he builds up 3 Steel Scale stacks and your team can't keep up with the slimes.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on November 22, 2013, 09:57:51 PM
Caduceus is an ass, still don't know what works better. MT run away or OT run away.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on November 22, 2013, 09:59:39 PM
Unless you mean gear-wise, then yeah.
Not just that. Its been confirmed by Yoshi that the difficulty of previous turns will be lowered whenever new turns are added to the list (this to give casual gamers also a change at the Coil without interfering with the players that want difficult content). But as said above, since 2.1 doesn't add new tiers to the Coil the difficulty should remain the same until patch 2.1.



And if we want to do Coil we'll need one more tank, one Bard and one random DPS (doesn't really mater which class).
The bard and tank might form a minor road block, but for the last DPS slot we could easily pick up a random one in Mor Dhona when we'll need one.

If you thought Titan HM was hard to accomplish with a pug group, good luck with Titan Extreme. As if the field didn't need to get any smaller, he has Titan babies now.

It seems Ifrit Extreme has 5 Ifrit clones charging at you and you can no longer stun the eruptions. I didn't see much of Garuda Extreme so I don't know how that one is going to play out.

Doubt you'll have to finish the coil for the new main scenario. Yoshi himself said he'd be surprised if more than 100 groups would finish turn 5, so why would they promote a new quest if not even 1% of the player base can start it ::)

8.000.000 for a small 5th rank piece of land on Odin :o :o :o

I've expected the large top tier pieces to be roughly that high, but I really hoped they would have kept in mind that there would also be free companies with less than 10 people out there :-\

everybody make new characters play through the story give the money to the FC and do it again. fast money ;D

Well that trick is both the fastest way to earn gill (unless your able to farm coil turn 1-4 weekly). But that same trick is probably also the fastest way to raise the gill bot flag, meaning you'll most likely get a "temporary" ban, during the next cleanup wave ::)

The fastest way would be to simply farm gill the old fasioned way and hope that the prices will eventually drop down (as it is working through some sort of action system), so the longer we can wait the cheaper it will become. Still after 90 days its still a good 4 million gill >_>

And as far as I know its just Oni and me within our FC who got close to a million gill on our banks (and I wasn't planning to spend all of that).

Nah, playing through the story takes too long, and the money you get isn't even that much (250K if you know what you're doing), you're much better off doing crafting leves or running dungeons.

Personal breakdown of the Battle Class Changes:

Paladin: Cover Change is solid. It was a bit low of a range anyway to use consistently, might be more used now. Dunno why Shield Oath Enmity goe sup, but might be to bring it on par with Defiance.

Warrior: Been thinking about it a little more. Might be a tad bit too much, but Paladin is still gonna be alot ebtter, considering Hallowed Ground>Holmgang, and Paladin can still block, unlike Warrior. We'll see how it pans out, but they went in the right direction.

Monk: Same as Warrior, they definitely went in the right direction with giving them more tools from the back. They might have gone a little overboard, but 12 seconds Greaed lightning still limits them somewhat, depending on the boss fight.

Dragoon: Probably the most balanced changes overall. They did all that was needed to be balanced and changed here. Jump animations was necessary, Heavy thrust was most likely to put it on par with Bard and Summoner, and Power Surge runs ona  similar vein.

Bard: I am alright with this. People are makign a big fuzz about it, but Bard is still going to be the exact same deal as before the patch, just not as insanely damaging when fully buffed. Same utility, same mobility, good uptime, voerall lower damage than monk or black mage, which now reside on the Top of the List.

Summoner: Kinda got the shittier end of the stick though... Thunder Removal kinda sucks a bit for Summoners. -25% dot damage is :C . Bane time nerf is also kinda bleh, and the buff, although good, wasnt what people were hoping for. Dont like the way they went with it.

_______

EDIT: I rolled some numbers again: Turns out, it was actually kinda ok.
Based on what damage i can do, with Bio2-Miasma-Bio, i still do aboutapprox 90 dps with Dots, 75 with ruin and 60 with garuda-egi. +30 with festers. that is still 250~DPS without Raging strikes, Spur, Rouse or any other offensive buffs. Or even crits. Normal Relic. 15int(was testing numbers before with scholar, but thats irrelevant). With thunder, you can almsot reach an average of 300dps with no special gear at all, just Darklight and Demagogue ring. Thats crazy
_____

White Mage: Not bad actually. Might make Cure3-based setups alot more efficient now, especially considering the fact that Medica2's regen has been changed in its way too.

Scholar: Lustrate +5%. Thats pretty big. It adds up during longer fights.

Virus: Who didnt see this one coming, hands down. Apotestasis already was like this, it was just a matter of time. Suprised this didnt come sooner.

Blizzard II: Why is this a cross-class now?



Overall: Good stuff SE.

Just by it being there its important to the story. Just as much as Hildebrand is important to the story and the Coil as well.
It not being part of the main story quests doesn't make the story less important to the whole picture ::)



And for the christmas season as far as I saw you can get both costumes from the previous christmass events 1.0, along with a new snowman costume.

Haven't done the CT stuff yet, or done any of the Beastman daily quests, or even started looking into what's the hubbub about Hildibrand. Been working on my Relic questline for Monk while juggling all the new content in 2.1. I have done the new HM dungeons as well as Pharos Sirius and attempted The Minstrel's Ballad with unpleasant results.

Hoping to jump in Garuda Extreme Mode tomorrow and unlock Good King Moggle Mog. Might save Crystal Tower for last since it involves FATEs. I know they are fixing the timer for them tonight, but I'll just wait till the crowd's die down a bit.

Loving the new look of Revenant's Toll in Mor Dhona. Looks like a genuine city now, and a better look for the endgame hub. Duty Roulette is amazing, but the experience is... well, I leveled one level in Conjurer from doing *Sastasha* via the Duty Roulette, and I was barely halfway. That's... um, yeah. 

As for class changes, WAR is just beyond OP now. My first experience tanking the new dungeons was pleasant but I need to get adjusted to the changes. Meaning I need to get used to Overpower coming out instantly.

Finally:

Well guys our FC is almost lvl 6 so who wants to make a donation towards the house funding ;D

With our current size we'll can only handle a small patch which costed 8 mil gil on the first day. With the price deflating to roughly 4 mil gil after 90 days, so right now it should be balancing around the 6 mil gil I believe.

In short this means we'll need a minimum of 4 mil gill to get ourselves a headquarters and 6 mil gil if we want to get one sooner.


Personally I've got 1 mil gil saved up which can go towards the funding and another spare 200 thousand in cause we'll come short on small amount, though I rather not use the later as that leaves me without a real financial backup in cause I need to buy something.

With that said we also need to decide on the location. My personal location would be in the Black Shroud (Gridania), with La Noscea (Limsa Lominsa) being the second choice.

Oni just logged in and he said that we are now Rank 6. ill see what i can fund with my 2 characters. And also i added something to the TS3 Server. Not done yet, been trying something out. Let me know what you all think of it.

_________________________________________________________________________

So i just checked out the the updated fan kit. awesome icons and new wallpapers, and sound effect for your phone. immortal Flames has the best sound ;D (in my opinion ofcourse)

okay so i have been thinking of really starting to recruit members for the FC. I thought that it might be a good idea, if the site/forum would get a raid group page. from there we could let people sign up and really start advertising for our FC. And if we get more members others might come back and we might be able to get even more. Let me know what you guys think, also if its possible to add to the forum or site. and with possible if bram has the time or would let one of us implement it.

Technically the 2 events you've missed aren't classified as seasonal events, which means you've missed non :P
All you've missed whith those 2 events are 2 minions and 1 helmet. You should lookup the cut-scenes though as one of them is probably the biggest thing you've missed out ;D

BTW I believe Sixty wanted to do the first rounds of Coil tonight so if you've got time ;D


Do you think it might be a good to put in a topic for item lvls so we know what everyone is at

Don't see a point for it. All our main classes are at the point where they good enough for practically all content (appart from the HP for T5 maybe). And to be honest item lvl isn't equal to skill level, with the later beeing the most important thing ;D

I'm in for Coil tonight. By now we should be able to clear up to turn 4 easily each week thus getting us the gear for clearing Primal Ex and Turn 5.
T1 till T3 should be a walk in the park by now, all it requires for me as a healer is a competent party on the same level.

So far I've only seen videos about T4, but that one might be harder to pull off with random people seeming the coordination on the fight. Though the more people from our group to help out the less random people we'll need for it.

And among our active people everyone should have the gear by now to down all content except for T5 (which as far as I know requires a minimum amount of HP to survive).

My White Mage is already ilvl 90 and though its not a complete BiS build the difference with a BiS White Mage would be to small to have a real impact. For me the only real improvements lies within my Skill and knowledge of the fights.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on February 12, 2014, 04:21:51 PM
Every fight is difficult without coordination and people that actually know what to do, it's always been like that up to now :D

I wouldn't mind joining, but I'm not going to play DPS or Tank on raiding level as I lack the instant switch potential between targets while using a controller. Let alone that playing a DPS role isn't really my style, so far I've only been playing those roles for the sake of getting them to level 50 ::)

As far as my scholar goes. I want to pick it up as my secondary role, but right now I can barely manage to play it at a decent level during hard mode primals/the old lvl 50 dungeons. And I'd still need to do Titan HD with it to get my relic.

- Weekends


Sixty already has stuff to do on Monday, Tuesday,  Friday and Sunday night.

Don't know about Ronald's schedule, but I believe Friday night is also impossible for him.

I'm at work during during the week so any normal day before 19:00 GMT is impossible. I might pick also up something which prefents the Tuesday night  for me, but that's not confirmed right now.
Also for now I'd prefer to keep the Thursday night free as I'm following a Dutch TV show which my family that only airs on Thursday night. Its a yearly show with only 11 episodes, right now there should only be 3 episodes left on the show. Would love to see it live, but if a simple Wednesday and weekend isn't enough we can schedule over it though.

So i got my first Atma crystal, and since its so annoying to open the journal the whole time i screenshotted the locations so i can put it on my second screen.

(http://i312.photobucket.com/albums/ll330/Sixty-60/AtmaLocations_zpsc595f39e.jpg)

anyway i got the Archer in the North Shroud, and it seems the drop rate is a bit higher while in an party.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on March 28, 2014, 03:40:32 PM
You only got 1 drop and your already drawing a conclusion :o
You'll probably got lucky, so far the stories vary but the average seems to be around 2~3 hours per Atma

BTW the list from the journal isn't a 100% correct, apparently the translation team made quite a few errors translating this particularly quest. For starters "Central La Noscea" which doesn't exists (probably they meant Middle La Noscea) and people question the double Central Thanalan as well (one of them is probably Central Shroud, seeming how that area only have 1 Atma).

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on March 28, 2014, 11:55:06 PM
and oni and jake both have 3 crystals

_____________________________________________________________________

well i got my second crystal from the east shroud, the goat. and jake also has a fourth i believe.

__________________________________________________________________________

i ended today with 2 more crystals, the maiden from the Central Shroud and the crab from Western La Noscea. which brings me a total of 4 on the first day of farming, and i can do Leviathan.

Really disappointed with Leviathan "Hard" Mode. For all the hype, he turned out to be easier than Garuda story to be honest. Now to bang my head against Leviathan Extreme for the next few weeks...

Sounds good to me. I got both ready in Duty Finder.

I'll just farm Coil and hopefully this time I'll remember to not get out before everyone rolls.......

Would still need to unlock both of those fight. Been trying to make some progress with my Atma quest first, but it seems this game just outright hate me at the moment.

Been farming them for at least 12 hours now and so far I only got 3 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on April 01, 2014, 09:14:49 AM
well you got more luck then some people, someone on my friendslist still hasn't gotten one. though i am one of the lucky ones, currently got 8 so.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on April 01, 2014, 11:02:08 AM
well you got more luck then some people, someone on my friendslist still hasn't gotten one.
After how many hours of farming??

I mean having a drop rate of roughly 1 every 4 hours isn't something you'd call being lucky when most of my friends are more in the ratio of 1 every 2 hours (or even less, seeming how Jake is already done and Martin got 5 despite spending most of his time raiding) ::)

Much rather saw this quest being a do 25 fates in each given region than this random RNG stuff. In other words I don't mind the drop rate of 1 Atma every 4 hours if I was certain I would get 1 every 4 hours. I got my first 3 Atma within 4 hours so yea that means I've now already spend 8 hours across 2 days while gaining absolutely nothing (exp is waisted, I'm full on seals and the little gil you earn through fates roughly makes up the repair costs) :-X

the hours any of us have wasted since the patch. and if i may believe some on the reddit even longer then us.

most of the time i have been in farming parties, i don't know if that helps or if i am one of the lucky ones.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: DragonSLAYER45 on April 12, 2014, 07:10:41 AM
Has anyone tried this method for farming Atma? (http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/22p1w8/japanese_atma_farming_theory/) Curious to see if it works, but I already have my Gae Bolg Atma and have no other Zenith'ed relics in my inventory. (1.5k mythology books, lol)
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on April 12, 2014, 11:28:37 AM
well looking at the answers people are giving its still a bit of luck to get it.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on April 12, 2014, 11:45:38 AM
Well to be honest I recon its more a method of hope than a real thing.

If it was real then all people in all people that where farming in the right area would have gotten there Atma within the course of "minutes", which is something people would have noticed by now.

I've been working on a new teamspeak3 server (the current one I rent as a dedicated teamspeak3 server. Though right now I've bought a small VPS for roughly the same costs on which I've installed a teamspeak3 server but on which I can do much more later on as well).

Can people check if they can connect to the new server with the following settings (will install a password later on).

so i did Garuda Extreme, found a group of skilled players. Even though they where French, they are really nice. They got a small group of people, and we have a small group so i propose that we look into working together for some end game content. They are currently at coil tier 3. they want to do that at least once, which i understand.

Sup guys, Glitches BF dropping by.  I was checking on how well the game was working on our PS3 and came across a sad revelation...

It seems that Odin is no longer accepting new characters.  Is there a longshot that we could sneak in at an opportune moment or is even that out of the question?

EDIT: Noticed Sixty's post one page back.  Any ballpark on the waiting time for the next opening?  xivsoul.com (http://xivsoul.com) shows Odin's population to be PRETTY huge.

It is possible for slots to open up, but I won't deny that it might be a long shot.

Its also possible to transfer servers on a later time, though this is only possible after paying an additional fee.

okay so i had an idea to help us with recruiting new members for our FC. Beside off course the PF and shouting on the server.

i can make an alternate char on Odin, don't know which class yet, and start streaming from the start. Because there are allot of people watching on twitch that also play the game. and most people try to find their servers first anyway, and not many people of Odin seem to be streaming.

what do you guys think about this?

then the only choice is which job to use, i was thinking either scholar or maybe bard
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: RoachWizard on July 29, 2014, 09:48:22 PM
Arcanist/scholar might be more efficient for streaming purposes, so you don't have to wait as long for the duty finder. That and arcanist can go through solo content easier.

Dood it doesnt hurt going two paladins. It also has advantages. The onyl two things you miss out is extra damage from storm's eye and warrior, as well as storm's path, while you gain more defensive strength and 2 hallowed grounds.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

yeah yeah, just saying.

so Bram, Yui, Oni and i tried to pug Levi EX. We got to 1%, i still don´t understand why we couldn't finish him off.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

so i did together with Ronald, the binding coil turn 1 a few times. he now has both the bard drops there. then we went and did those new dungeons. got Bard drops as well. and his relic bow has been upgraded. So it was a good day today.

Also yesterday was a really productive day, right Ronald? Here are Ronald and i while we rested a bit from all the Coil turn 4 runs, the on ST run and all those Hunts.

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on September 16, 2014, 09:41:02 PM
Guys some general advise. With the new changes to Sycrus Tower (100% drop on Sand of Time) the amount of grouping up and kicking the rest of the players before the final boss is real.

Just did a run of Sycrus Tower with a Monk who didn't participate at all during the first 3 fights, but when I wanted to vote kick him the motion got abandoned and like 4 people started raging at me on how I could see that the monk wasn't doing anything while according to them he "apparently" was.
- First fight he stood at the entrance and didn't move
- Second fight he walked into the boss area and right before the wall went up we walked out (claiming we had started the fight to early)
- Third fight he only walked around pretending to do something (he's a monk, so without a single buff popping up next to his name in the party list I'm a 100% sure he didn't do much)

Anyway I got the feeling I was on a hot seat to get kicked out of the dungeon, so I played it smart and didn't loot on anything. Knowing the rules of a vote kick means you can't kick people whiles looting or in battle which in Sycrus Tower is quite easy to maintain. Can't say for sure they would have kicked me, but they sure where impatient on letting that timer run out ::) The monk in question even bluntly said he suspected it was me so he couldn't vote kick me out (Wonder want the GM thinks of such words, especially when he started swearing when I wouldn't leave the dungeon before the loot got distributed). Bad thing is that he sadly still got out with his price :-\

In short though. A good word of advice, when the 3th chest drops don't roll on it until you've started the battle with Xande. The only way to get kicked after that point is when the party wipes and fails to restart the battle before the timer runs out.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on September 17, 2014, 09:11:52 AM
thanks for the advice, maybe its a good idea to party up with a group and then run the dungeon.

Hey guys, is it maybe better if starting next week, instead of raiding on Wednesday we do it on Thursday. Today we missed half the party which means we can't raid. also if you cant make it or you are going to be later. let us know otherwise we expect you to be there.

also on the new relic upgrade:

which means if you can't be online you have to post it on the forum or either let someone know.

Levi without people falling off is just as simple as Garuda Extreme when people know how to coop with the spinny ::)

Just look at are last few tries, if only we had a few more DPS alive we would have gotten him for sure.

So after most people left, i helped Chaos and some others with Moogle Mog EX second time we went in we finally succeeded. it shows you always need at least 1 melee dps, first time we went in with 2 Bards and 2 BLM, after that 1 changed to DRG.
_____________________________________________________________________________

Hey Yuichan, i was wondering if you would like to switch to a dps class for the raid group. We have this Tank that has been raiding with us on Wednesdays and other days as well, and if you don't mind and the others don't mind i would like to ask him to join the group.

his name is Gaius Octavius.

My Final Fantasy XIV days are over for a while. Ramuh Ex survived, but I managed to beat Twintania. There's still tons of stuff to do in the game, but I've pretty much done all the main content. My WHM is currently ilvl100. Still hope to defeat Ramuh Ex and clear the Second Coil as well. Overall it was a really nice summer. I'll be back in December or January for Patch 2.4. :)

Patch 2.4 will see the introduction of a new Allagan tomestone currency, the removal of Allagan tomestones of philosophy, and changes to other tomestone varieties currently in circulation.



Allagan Tomestones of Philosophy

With the release of patch 2.4, any remaining Allagan tomestones of philosophy in the possession of players will be removed from the game. We ask that any players currently carrying Allagan tomestones of philosophy please exchange them for Allagan tomestones of mythology prior to the scheduled maintenance for patch 2.4.

Allagan tomestones of philosophy can be exchanged for Allagan tomestones of mythology by speaking with Auriana at Revenant's Toll (X:9 Y:11).

Allagan Tomestones of Mythology

Allagan tomestones of mythology will no longer be obtainable.
All trials and duties that yield Allagan tomestones of mythology will instead offer either Allagan tomestones of soldiery or the new Allagan tomestone currency.

Players will no longer be able exchange Allagan tomestones of mythology for items.
Although Allagan tomestones of mythology will not be removed, items obtained through their exchange will be made available through other means.

Allagan Tomestones of Soldiery

The weekly obtainment cap for Allagan tomestones of soldiery will be removed.
* The maximum store of 2,000 tomestones has not been changed.

One of the new jobs is Dark Knight. I guess it's either for the Gladiator or for the Dragoon. If it's for the Dragoon, I wonder if they are going to make it a tank job.

Post by: Chaos on October 19, 2014, 12:35:57 PM
Yep, I meant Lancer. They didn't announce new classes, so I doubt there will be any in 3.0. I expect Marauder -> Berserker. That one will be awesome.

And I'm not farming that *Bleep* again. >.<
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on October 19, 2014, 05:30:13 PM
It actually is a whole new class->job just like Rogue->Ninja.

When they announced Heavensward one of the first thing said was "New Classes and Jobs". There's really no point in giving a Class another Job to choose from while all others get nothing.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

Must say you can make some interesting conclusions from those numbers. The one I found most interesting myself was the fact that Wanderer's Palace is still the most run dungeon (guess the record on speed-run days from vanilla 2.0 can't be broken :P)

Post by: Da_Cloud on October 20, 2014, 06:38:06 PM
I'm surprised that Garuda HM isn't the most common trial.
Probably the same story. Back in 2.0 most people kept on farming Ifrit Hard mode for there weapon, as you'll needed that weapon to beat Titan before you could get your reward (your Zodiak weapon)  ;D
But with the trials the numbers 1, 2 and 3 are still pretty close.

The difference between Wanderer's Palace and Braflox is that Wanderer's Palace has been run twice as much, which considering the immense farming of Braflox for quick mythology is quite impressive. But then again back in 2.0 people farmed Wanderer's Palace like there was no tomorrow for its mythology ;D


Also notice that the amount of tanks and healers has been decreasing according to the graphs (How leveling some alt classes can generate false information in graphs) :P

Also Cliff aka TigerzHead might come back playing the game. Ninja fever i guess, double wield weapons.
______________________________________________________________________________________________

So Ninja is going Dexterity, you need Pugilist lvl 15 and cross class abilities from Lancer. you can equip the mnk gear since they have dex on them and all MNK gear that was added in 2.3 will get the dex stat added to them.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on October 24, 2014, 01:58:27 PM
Quote
Gamer Escape: It was announced that Ninja would be using monk gear, but it was also said that it would be using dexterity as a primary stat. Isn’t the main stat on monk gear strength? How do you see this working?
YOSHI P: (After checking) Up to level 50, if you happen to have it, you are able to equip the fighter gear. Up to level 50 it is not job specific gear, so as long as you have fighter gear you will be OK, since they have both dexterity and strength. Beyond level 50, for example, the Fuma set from the Crystal Tower, and on that the dexterity attribute is already attached, so you be be able to use that. From 2.4 there will be new specific level 50+ gear that has the dexterity attribute attached so you won’t be conflicting with the Monk’s gear. Each will have their own specific sets of gear.

Don't like this...
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

More Heavensward info:

- Flying Mounts
- New beast tribes: Vanu Vanu with Bismarck as their primal and Gnath with Ravana as their primal (original FFXIV primal)
- Dark Knight is the new job (tank role) and it won't even have a base class. Gunner is the other job and more info about it will be revealed at the event in Tokyo.

Here is the whole show, but it probably won't take long until it is removed:

Yeah, you have to level it up, but I still find it a bit stupid. Right now there is not much of a difference between a class and a job. If it weren't for SMN/SCH they could just remove jobs entirely from the game and keep classes. :-\

Ahh there hasn't been any major changes since you left. Most noticeably changes would be
- New Relic quest chapters are out (which involve random drops from 'low level' dungeons, including arum vale and dzema darkhold) :P
- Dragoons have gotten a buff (so they lost there excuse to die all the time)
- Shiva now drops an item to boost your Shiva weapon to lvl 115 (which is the new way to quickly gain your good weapons)



Also the Christmass even has started. For those wondering the event basically consists of daily quests in each of the three housing area's, this means that if you want all the chrismass gear, christmass minion, and other stuff you'll probably need 4 or 5 days to collect all the currency required. Each daily quest itself takes about 1 minute though and together with traveling to each area you'll probalby spend only 10 minutes a day :P

The three new jobs we're getting in the expansion are Dark Knight, Machinist and Astrologian. As previously announced, the first job is a tank job. Machinist is a ranged damage dealer and Astrologian will be another healer job. The new race is called Au Ra (the males and females look too different for my taste). We're also getting flying mounts. Hooray for riding dragons! ^_^

That's 22:00 our time and that's when most of us usually stop playing. Is 10am - 1pm fine for you? If it's fine for everyone else I can start even earlier.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to play at all. For some reason steam won't add funds to my wallet. After a bunch of attempts I managed to add 5€ and then after a few more attempts it seems it locked me out of it completely... Tried adding directly via the credit card on the Mog Station, but it's giving me Error 601, whatever it represents.

Restarted everything (computer, modem), tried again and it finally accepted the additional 10€. It takes over an hour to pay for a game? >.>

Some of it is high traffic, but some of the international currencies changed policy or something and it's made using Steam more of a hassle.

Gilgamesh Extreme (or at least another fight against him) confirmed:

Quote
Battle in the Big Keep

How many realms has he traversed, and how many rivals has he felled? Gilgamesh journeys ever onward in his unending quest for the strongest of swords. But the road is long and lonesome, and a painted rooster─loyal and noble as the bird may be─can bring a man only so much comfort in the darkest and most trying of times. So it was that Gilgamesh turned to the heavens, pleading to be reunited with a long-lost companion. Be it by fortune or fate, his prayers were heard, and the stage for the final confrontation is set. To the victor goes the Treaty-Blade!

Post by: Chaos on January 16, 2015, 02:59:01 PM
Oh, I didn't even notice they showed Enkidu. But since they played Battle on the Big Bridge it was kinda obvious we would fight him again.

I don't mind Choas. The grind will be the same and even with a 50% upgrade it still takes you 250 Garuda fights during bonus window to complete the grind. I hardly grinded light to begin with, for 3 months I did nothing more than my dailies and sometimes a dungeon or 2 (casually gaining light over the course of 3 months). It hasn't been for the last 500 light that I really started "grinding" (read collecting 20 light a day meaning doing expert roulette and ~ 5 trials a day).



BTW the real patch notes are out and I got a bad feeling about this line. I believe we've seen this before :-\
Quote
The Hunt has been adjusted as follows:
The number of allied seals granted upon defeating elite marks has been increased.
A Rank
Increased from 20 to 40.
S Rank
Increased from 50 to 100.

The number of allied seals granted by regular mark bills has been increased from 4 to 8 and from 10 to 20.

The number of allied seals granted by elite mark bills has been increased from 50 to 100.

Elite marks will now drop unstained mark logs instead of blood-spattered mark logs.

Post by: Chaos on January 21, 2015, 12:20:01 PM
Ally and me did World of Darkness yesterday. We ran out of time on the final boss. The dungeon is fun. The first and final bosses can be a challenge.

I also managed to beat Odin last night. The battle is a major disappointment. It's just a dps check cause of the 7 minutes enrage timer. Everything in the fight is really simple. I've also seen my first mount drop. Shiva dropped the Boreas mount and I rolled an amazing 24. >.>

WoD is pretty easy for me in my opinion. I've run it a few times and all but once we made it through with time left. I haven't done anything else. If you need pointers on WoD, I've got it pretty much figured out :D Honestly, I think the hydra is the hardest part.

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on January 21, 2015, 03:51:25 PM
The Five-Headed Dragon is pretty easy. We had only one wipe there because people didn't kill the heads in time. The debuff near the end is the fun part. By the time I finished reading what it does I had already lost more than half my HP. Cerberus was easy, we killed him on our first try. The first boss took forever because people kept dying to Doom and didn't kill adds. The last boss was a problem because of the meteors and adds which people again didn't kill fast enough.



Here's the Odin battle from yesterday:

Haven't really started Triple Triad yet, apart from a random match or 2.

I really want that Zodiac weapon to be done, been looking at those 4 quests for far to long now. and since I managed to finish 2 of them already in the past few days it gave me the boost to continue farming for a bit longer. Was good fun to farm other dungeons than the "Expert roulette" dungeons, shame though that 2 of the 3 remaining dungeons are from the last Expert roulette :X

BTW good to see your back online Oni, was starting to fear I'd slowly be the only one left on the FC ::)

Has anyone pre-ordered Heavensward? The price is 35€ (or $40) for the standard edition. The physical Collector's Edition is a whooping $130. I would pre-order it right now if didn't have to wait for it to release on Steam. For some odd reason players who purchased A Realm Reborn on Steam have to purchase the expansion on Steam, as well.

The first video is kind of spoilerific as it has Heavensward and 2.55 cutscenes, so if you are sensitive to that, I recommend tabbing out and listening from another page.

The second video is a dungeon exploration video. One of the dungeons looks like Anor Londo from Dark Souls, and omg... the music in that library dungeon. So good.

The third video is some of the new job actions. Summoners get a freaking Bahamut spell!  ;D
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on May 22, 2015, 07:00:33 PM
The new theme is kinda meh, at least compared to Answers. I was expecting the song from the trailer to be the Heavensward theme. The title screen music is really good, though.

I must've missed the dungeons video. Was is even shown during yesterday's live letter? The second dungeon definitely looks like Anor Londo. The one with the three platforms and a sphere in the middle is probably a 24-man raid (a platform for each alliance). The one after that reminds me of the Coil. Could it be another 24-man raid or maybe Alexander?
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on May 23, 2015, 09:09:25 AM
We'll its quite hard to topple Answers as a theme song to begin with ::)
But I have to say I quite like it as a title song for Heavensward. It really captures the feeling of Ishgard (as seen in the trailers so far), while at the same time staying true to the style of Answers.

"Preparing European Data Centre Operations"

As it says they are currently building a physical data center for EU for us to connect to instead of NA/JP.

tl;dr: server for EUropeans -> better connections.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on May 31, 2015, 01:00:03 PM
I think most of the delay comes from the servers processing stuff and not from the network so I'm not sure how much improvement the EU data centers will bring, but I'm keeping my hopes up. :D

I also did some research about switching from the steam to the non-steam version and the results sadden me. Apparently it's not possible to register a non-steam version on the same account. I would have to create a new account and a new character if I wanted a non-steam version. Seems I'm stuck with Steam for good. :-\

The first thing to wonder is if its worth it to switch to an EU server in the first place ::) The little delay I'm experiencing myself isn't going to make me switch to an EU server without knowing whether or not they'll be populated.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Oniangel on May 31, 2015, 03:12:08 PM
I have no intention whatsoever to change server. The game is perfectly playable and the prospective of a slightly reduced ping doesn't make the hassle to migrate server (an empty one too) worth for me.

I was just happy to see SE doing something for EU.

Don't know, haven't really been following the news that closely. But are the current servers marked as EU or NA then, because I always believed they where marked as combined EU/NA servers?
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on May 31, 2015, 06:03:26 PM
They might be marked as EU/NA because they are in the same location. Chaos is the EU data center, though. I think they even recommend that data center to European players and the other ones to American players. It wouldn't really make much sense to create new servers in the EU data center instead of moving the existing ones.

Apparently at some points you need to party up as 4 people of disciple of the hand. But i haven't read anywhere if there are lvl requirements.

So my question is, do we want to wait with it or shall i build it and we can start gathering in our spare time. While we wait for que's to pop.

So i was looking through some forums to find a good way to macro Divine Veil, but i stumbled upon people explaining the skill. and i got confused.

(http://i312.photobucket.com/albums/ll330/Sixty-60/Divine%20Veil_zps0wxjuwvs.jpg)

So what do you guys think, i know for a fact that i as PLD do not get the shield buff.

Post by: Chaos on July 05, 2015, 10:56:25 AM
From what I've seen in one of the FATEs we've done together, other party members do get the buff.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on July 05, 2015, 11:32:32 AM
1) You'll need to trigger the spell to get a buff on yourself
2) Another party member will need to cast a healing spell to trigger the buff giving all party members within the 15 yalms radius a shield (except for you I guess).
3) The shield for a given character will remain active until:
   3a) The shield has absorbed the total amount of damage
   3b) 30s have passed
   3c) The character receives any kind of healing magic.
   

That's how I would read it. The only thing I'm not 100% sure about would be 3c, I assume its healing on the given character with the actual buff. But it could also read whenever you as paladin get a heal again that the buff ends, but that's quite easy to try and see.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on July 05, 2015, 11:45:37 AM
well technically the buff disappears when i get healed and then you all get the barrier.

It's the latter. When the Paladin gets healed he loses Divine Veil and everyone within range gets the barrier.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you guys know that after I returned from my vacation with family, the net at my home decided to crap out completely. I could still log in, but I would likely be playing with enormous amounts of lag that would make the game unenjoyable for me and I don't want that.

We are going to have someone come in this weekend and check what the problem might be. Until that happens, no Heavensward for me. But do not worry as my return is inevitable, whenever that might be.

What's the fourth wall?

Regarding the new jobs, I would be surprised if it wasn't Red Mage and Samurai. I wish my sub lasted a bit longer. The event seems interesting. Did anyone run the benchmark on the 27th? If you didn't, check some YouTube videos. There was a nice Easter Egg. ;D
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on August 29, 2015, 05:51:04 PM
Just watch a vid of the event. You have to do a fate event, then run some around town again. Its the ending which gives the fun though. You'll end up on the "Eighteenth floor" which is basically an in-game representation of Yoshida's office :P We're you'll find in-game representations of the big names that work on FFXIV.

They somewhat hint the red mage as there are 2 guys arguing whether its Blue or Red that comes after White and Black ::)

I'm sure someone made a vid about it  ;)

Correct. We have enough jobs in my opinion. Making new ones isn't an easy task by any means. They have to keep the balance, but they also have to make each job unique, so that it doesn't feel like a copy-paste of another job.

Haven't been online yet. But to be honest the latency on the NA sever wasn't that big off an issue for me to begin with (not after the initial latency fixes)
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on October 21, 2015, 10:03:48 PM
I got used to it, but I can't deny that the game is quite laggy. However, I'm not sure how much of that lag is network lag, so this 100ms decrease in latency might not mean much.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on October 22, 2015, 08:33:47 AM
Must say after playing one night that the change in latency is hardly noticeable, my spells seem to feel a fraction more responsive, but that's about it. However if they moved the server without the announcement I probably wouldn't have noticed the difference.

What's happened to Alex?
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on October 28, 2015, 09:07:24 AM
What's happened to Alex?
The same thing that happens to any content with mechanics, when all the competent people have moved on to harder content.

Remember those rockets from Alex 1, where you have to kill an add underneath to stop them. Well most DPS can't get much further than ", but if I stop attacking the boss my DPS drops" ::)
I can carry on with the examples, but I guess you've already exprienced it when you where borred and decided to try random Extreme primals through duty finder :P
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on October 28, 2015, 12:42:33 PM
That's the reason why I hope they never release an official DPS meter. As for DF extreme primals, the problem is that people don't know the mechanics at all. My only two successful attempts as a tank were Garuda EX and Leviathan EX. The worst one has to be Moogle EX where the other tank (a Dark Knight) didn't even have Provoke.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Sixty on October 30, 2015, 01:40:27 PM
Yeah Moogle EX is hard if 1 tank doesn't have provoke, though its hard anyway even if you know the mechanics. There are only a few people who are paying attention.

How is the new patch? I wanna fight Thordan Ex. >.<

Void Ark's final boss theme is amazing. The Thordan Ex theme is great as well.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on November 14, 2015, 01:32:34 PM
The story seems more a filler that blows open a few new plot directions, without really going forward.
The new dungeons are quite fun (except for the part where the expert roulette is 50/50 between them).
The void ark is quite good. I'd say its on par with the World of Darkness. Quite epic on display, and you have to pay at least some attentions to not trigger a full wipe.

Haven't done Thordan Ex yet, but from what I've heard its quite hard on the Healers end.


Overall its a good patch, but they didn't joke when they set it was a smaller patch than we are used to.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

Yup it seems that way, but then again you've got this entire month the time to make use of it. Sure you'll find a good moment to enjoy the free days ;)



Just to let you guys know. The 3.15 patch is scheduled for tomorrow. With the most noticeable update being the quest to start the farm for the new relic weapons. As per usual we are left in the dark as to what we need to do this time, but according to the devs its a 5 phase quest. With the first phase being something that even Yoshi-P himself would hate to do :o This also seems to the the advantage for having a completed Zeta weapon as you can then skip this first step.

And also a new quest line (which is assumed to involve our good friend Hildibrand)

Also the free login campaign is still going on: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/0bedb1c411e10e90b863f223e0a18a3082fa5458



Info on the new Anima weapons: https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/3x37zh/anima_weapon_guide/
Also the dev's where right when they said you'd want to skip step 1 (atma farming all over again). Though to be honest Step 3 seems to be quite punishing as well :o
After step 1 you'll get a ilvl 170 base weapon, then after step 2 you're weapon has grown to ilvl 200 (which is usually best in slot for non raiding people) and when your all done you get an ilvl 210 weapon.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on December 16, 2015, 10:17:04 PM

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on December 17, 2015, 08:14:02 AM
I think I'll just farm Thordan. ;D

Wel with my Zeta I can skip step 1 entirely and step 2 is kinda a walk in the park for a healer (almost no queue time). Which leaves me with a ilvl 200 weapon.
That only leaves me with step 3,. Now grinding the tokens may take a huge amount of time, but in the end it requires me to do stuff I usually already do on a daily basis. So I'll get there eventually :P
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on December 25, 2015, 12:08:35 AM
After doing over 800 FATEs for the Atma weapon (which is exactly the same as the Zenith I already had), I have no more plans of doing any relic quests.

The Aquapolis seems pretty interesting. I'm also surprised by the new trial since I expected another member of the Warring Triad. The raid finder is a great tool, I just hope they will extend it to raids other than Midas. It's nice they are experimenting with different mechanics instead of sticking to the standard set we had for A Realm Reborn. I sincerely hope they succeed.

Btw. put some Krakka Roots in the Company Chest so I can feed the Chocobos, too. Or at least tell me what I have to do to make them. :P

Btw. put some Krakka Roots in the Company Chest so I can feed the Chocobos, too. Or at least tell me what I have to do to make them. :P
I'll send you a stack by mog mail ;D

Also creating them is quite simple. You can buy the Krakka seeds from the store in the housing area and all you need then is some soil from the market boards (or gather them yourselves). Personally I'd always go with the Grade 3 shroud soil as those will increase the amount of roots you'll eventually harvest. The other 2 are about increasing the changes of cross breading (not applied to Krakka roots) or the quality of the products (not applied to Krakka roots). Once planted it should take somewhere between 2 1/2 and 3 days. Be sure to water the plants, if you don't water them within 24 hours they go purple and if you don't water them in 48 hours they die and you've lost the materials.

Personally I'd always buy a stack of 99 seeds and 99 soil and try to keep the cost below 1.2 mil gil, that way I can sell 80% of the roots (to break even) and keep the remaining 20%. If the costs are higher its usually cheaper to actually buy the Krakka roots themselves :P

The new trailer is out:

Major spoilers right at the start (and end) for anyone who hasn't finished the 3.0 story.

Post by: Da_Cloud on May 29, 2016, 03:11:48 PM
They usually show spoilers in those trailers to begin with, but then again its an MMO and you've had a good 3 months to get through the previous patch :P

Guess that after this patch we'll finally pick up the warrior of Darkness quest line, so far they've managed to get us hyped up only to keep us in the dark for another 6 months ::)



Got my first pony from Ttian after joinging a "farming" group with Zody. Lets just say that the group was so goed that we could confirmed that you can do Titan Ex unsynced with just 2 healers ::)

Haha. At least we both got rewarded for it. You got the Titan pony, I got the Garuda pony.

And yay for two more Hildibrand quests! -.-'

http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/0e2d7f99ec992a9e03b82dbd3ec0678cbe5ebb57

And only 6 main scenario quests, too... The Warring Triad quest shows some Garleans. There's also a new side story quest sequence that includes Nidhogg. No idea what exactly that one is.

Quote
[2.0] After falling out of bounds during The Navel, The Navel (Hard), or The Navel (Extreme), the camera will now return to the center of the battlefield.
Aww...

Lets just hope those are some really 2 quests then :P

Also it seems Sohr Khai is part of the main story quest, as they blanked out the quest name :P
Guessing we either have to learn something from the "good" dragons before we get to battle Nidhogg ;D


The Warring Triad being about Garleans was already told during the last live letter. They skipped the next triad boss in favor of Nidhogg, but at least they wanted to give us some in game reason why we don't get to fight the next boss I guess. The reason being the Garlean interference.


What about that side story quest involving Nidhogg though, can't seem to find it back in the notes ???
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on July 25, 2016, 07:33:17 PM
It's this one:

[3.0] New side story quests have been added.

The last quest is "Nidhogg's Rage" and is also a prerequisite for unlocking the Extreme version of the fight.



So I have this weird theory that we will see Gilgamesh in this patch again...



Guess I was wrong about good old Greg. The two Hildibrand quests weren't particularly long, but at least the quality is still there.

The Wiping City of Mhach finished. A few wipes on Ozma (some idiot Summoner pulled even though 7 people weren't ready) and a couple rejected motions to abandon the duty, but other than that it was fine. ;D



And here comes the next free login campaign: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/0b8920e68063ec4a16533bcc115d6d154b75ce73

They even extended this one by another 24 hours. Ronald, Sixty, Allison, when are you free? Would be nice if we could use this at the same time since I probably won't subscribe for some time and I assume some of you won't either.

Could also re-common doing at least 1 run through the Palace of the Dead. In the end its probably just another dungeon, but at least this one has a nice twist to it ;)

At first I thought it was Extreme. Ravana (Hard) was never that bad. >.>

Btw. photobucket is ridiculously slow.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on September 02, 2016, 08:51:51 AM
It was terrible. DPS who where way way to low on there damage, apart from the fact that they kept dying. Tanks who repeatably turned Ravana towards the group for no apparent reason, ect. And as far as I could tell we only had 1 new DPS and 1 new Healer, the rest should have known what to do. We even had 2 mentors (appart from me) for what that system is worth at least.
If it was Ravana Extreme this group probably wouldn't even have seen a single butterfly spwan :P

Also photobucket is really slow yea :-\

Its no real rocket science though, given the date of the 3.5 patch we can probably already speculate the time frame of the next free login campaign ::)

We should really try to get online as 4 though and do the new floors on Palace of the Dead. Its the last 3.4 content I haven't even started myself.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

I agree we should all get online at the same time. I'll let Sixty and Ronald decide on the date. I'll also re-sub a week before 3.5.

I should probably update on my escapades in FFXIV!

I still play several times a week. Currently maining Bard, i259! I raid with some friends and we're currently on A10S. It's a fun time!

I also somehow ended up co-running the FC I'm in, which is kinda stressful due to the lack of time I have to always log in, but I definitely try!

Hope others are still playing!

Only Bram is always active in our FC on Odin. Sixty, Ronald and me sub every couple months. Ally subs every couple years.

I have an ilvl ~240 WHM and WAR. Finished all the extremes except for Sephirot, but I haven't done any Alexander (Savage) floors.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on December 04, 2016, 10:29:49 AM
I'm really the only one in the FC who's online in on daily basis. Chaos basically sups around every new patch and you'll see Ronald online from time to time. Sixty hasn't been online since a long time though ::)

Don't do much raiding myself though, to "stressfull" to do it with random people and to few friends online to do it with them :P

So I'll just keep it with a few dailies here and there ;)

Red mage confirmed people ;D

Also we'll be able to swim and dive in the next expansion. No fighting in the water though, we will however be able to gather stuff in the water (mainly fishing).
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on December 24, 2016, 07:03:51 PM
Yeah, Red Mage was confirmed a long time ago unless you believed in conspiracy theories. Samurai is now also confirmed.

Here are some of the more important info:

- Patch 3.5 Part 1 will be released on January 17th.
- The expansion will be released on June 20th unless delayed.
- It will feature an Ivalice-themed 24-man raid designed by Yasumi Matsuno. If the previous release schedule is anything to go by, we won't get the raid until 4.1 though.
- We will fight the Omega Weapon at some point in Stormblood.
- There is a new mermaid-like beast tribe. Their primal is Lakshmi.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on December 24, 2016, 10:06:28 PM
Its only confirmed until Yoshida shows it on a slide, before that point it are just mad mans theories :P

The mermaid-like beast tribe actually live in the mountain region so I guess they are more Lamia like. Just like the Ixal the can be traced back to the third era so I guess they are also a race born from Allagan experiments ;)
And Omega is apparently the new 8-man raid.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on December 25, 2016, 12:34:45 AM
Its only confirmed until Yoshida shows it on a shirt, before that point it are just mad mans theories :P

Think I'll start off with zurvan normal just to clear it out of the way and next do the 24-man Dun Scaith.
Think the weekly upgrade item will be worth more than unlocking the expert roullete for some tomestones. Besides from the stories we've got wiping city part 2 so its bound to be a fun ride :P



In case the rest doesn't want to get spoiled for the patch 3.5 story line, hide the player titles ;) Apparently 1 guy really messed up the translation as you can read here: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/315021-Hide-player-titles-if-you-don-t-want-to-get-spoiled-by-the-3.5-p1-story?p=3998489#post3998489

Post by: Da_Cloud on March 09, 2017, 12:03:27 PM
Apparently they just changed one of the trash mobs in Dun Scaith with the Prototype Ultima (at least if you have the quest up??), so yea the there are a lot of complain topics right now about it not even being a real fight.

To be fair though, they should have just pushed this whole patch to a later date. The only reason we got this in between patch was mainly to give us back the Diadem and seeming how the had to delay the Diadem duo to a critical bug ::)





Diadeem 2.0 has just gone live.

The salt is indeed real :P
Don't really get why though, the weapons are pure RNG. First you'll need to get the right weapon to drop, then you need to outrol the rest and last but not least its pink gear so the stats are RNG as well. And to top it all off the weapon won't get you much further into Storm Blood than the lvl 275 weapons ::)

I'm not sure I understand your question. If it's any help, the starting vendor weapons from HW were ilvl115, while the ARR relic was ilvl135. I guess we can expect something around ilvl260 at the start of Stormblood.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on March 12, 2017, 01:54:08 PM
Last time our old "relic" weapons got outclassed roughly 50~60% into the new expansion so this time I guess we'll can expect roughly the same to happen.

Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Da_Cloud on May 23, 2017, 03:44:00 PM
They also did a live letter in which they explained the new battle system a bit more. Haven't seen it yet, but the salt on the internet is real :P

It seems every class now has its own personal "limit break" system with indeed the summoner having access to the Bahamut "egi". Bard and Machinist will be able to "move" again while black mage is still bound to there leylines (you'll get an ability to teleport back to your lines though). All figured out from salty people so can't say its 100% true or not.

Can't tell without having played it, but it sounds like the rework is larger than we had anticipated so far.
Title: Re: FFXIV General discussion topic
Post by: Chaos on June 24, 2017, 01:14:43 AM
Yes, the rework is definitely larger than anybody had expected. The salt will always be there. If there weren't a rework, people would complain about the lack of a rework. Healers also get a spell with which they can pull other players into an AoE... *cough* out of an AoE.

Btw. I finally cleared A11S. >.>



After two hours of trying, I finally beat the expansion!

Yup. I expect a trailer today during the live letter. I also expect the release date to be October 10th. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll have the time to play this patch. :-\



Did you manage to buy a plot in Shirogane?

You know what to do next month: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/special/callback/  ;D

I have an 8 to 5 Job so what do you think :P

Next patch they will apperently increase all the plots. Don't need one in Shirogane, but trading our house for a mansion somehwere would be fun ;)

I'm bummed out I missed this promotion, I was feeling the itch to revisit the game. I guess I'll just resub. How's 4.1 update, any big changes?

4.1 not really any big changes. The odd numbers always contain a new dungeon, trial and 24-man raid (in short). The bigger update will be 4.2 which will give the new raid tier, more dungeons and the start of the relic quest.

Looks like Sigmascape will be FFVI-themed. I guess the last one will be VII or VIII-themed, whichever one has Omega Weapon (both I think?). I expect Omega Prime to be the final boss. I also expect to see Sephiroth as a boss at some point, but it wouldn't make sense for Kefka to be the final boss of this tier and Sephiroth not to be the final boss in the VII tier. Who knows, maybe they even deviate a bit from the pattern we had so far.

We can say almost for sure say that the last Sigmascape battle would indeed be against Omega prime. But Omega as a robot like entity only appeared in the original FFV and FFXII (believe it also appeared as a cameo supper boss in some remakes later on).

In FFVII, FFVIII and FX we did get an Omega, but the design was completely different from the robot like FFV version (on which our FFXIV version is based).

Then again I can remember Yoshi saying something about the possibility of a patch 4.6 and 4.7. Not sure where I picked that one up though, but if that's indeed true we would have a 4th Sigmascape as well.

We'll have only one Sigmascape (the tier in 4.2). The first raid tier was called Deltascape. We don't know yet what the next one will be called.

I also remember the talk about 4.6 and 4.7. If it happens we may get more than just three tiers. In that scenario we could have Sephiroth as the final boss of the third tier and Omega Prime as the final boss in the next and final tier. It may even be a stand-alone battle (like the Ultimate Coil) instead of a whole raid tier.
