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.

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.

Its still quite easy to catch up. Though I must say that the normal stages of Alexander have become quite hard to complete these days ::)

Welcome back, Oni! ^_^ Too bad school has started for me and I'm pretty busy this semester.

What's happened to Alex?

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

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.

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.

First patch notes are up :D
http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/cc5b2ba8ffd64cef26cb0e0cdac97104f8e7308e#battle

One line caught my interest though:
- Tataru is no longer available as an opponent for Triple Triad.

How many more times do we have to save her? >.>

I can't predict the future and I won't really spoil the story for you, but we don't have to save her this patch. Nor is she going anywhere, so I have to say I'm clueless as to why she isn't available as a Triple Triad opponent anymore ???

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.

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.

There's only about 10 new main scenario quest. If I remember correctly, there was always about 20 of them in every new patch. Btw. is the new minigame any fun?

Haven't tried it yet, but from what I've read so far its basically an implementation of FFXII: Revenant Wings with a FFXIV twist.
