Looking to be a tickle slave
I'm on Faerie, looking for strong Femroes and Highlanders to overpower me and just obliterate my feet with tickling.
What's everyone up to? Trying to get BTN to 35 and ARM/BSM to 30 tonight.
Was doing Void Ark and got stoned multiple times. someone send help.
nice ad hominem, what were you hoping to accomplish with this post.
that's why the relationship is going to fail.
things you find out of desperation aren't always the things you truely wanted.
and you'll settle for far less out of desperation, when you might actually deserve more.
>not into dicks
I don't think it's their dicks they want you to take care of desu
Here's one I found
Do I have to come buy you dyes to go with your augmented AF? Or are you waiting to find other glamour pieces?
I remember when BLMs were proud because a Raging Strikes Flare crit could break 1000 damage.
Now everyone deals 1000 dps because of vertical progression bloat.
im leveling PLD my dude
I just don't have any ideas right now for dyes. I mean, I dyed a few things.
Kill yourself ugly lala
Enjoy the ride sensei
Here's three of 'em
So my Wtfast free trial just ran out, and I didn't realize how much I would miss it once it was gone, the game is almost unplayable now.
I'm curious to know what the players on here think I should do next, resub, or try something else like Pingzapper? What's considered the best way to make the game run faster?
This is the person that was calling all the shots for Primal Flames.
Pingzapper gets me a better ping than WTFast (as a South Australian- connecting to a JP data center; w/o VPN ~240ms, PZ ~165-185ms, WTFast ~175-195ms), but WTFast seems to have more robust performance with fewer disconnects and the included ping graph helps me work out whether there's an issue with my connection, WTFast itself or the game.
Hope that helps, but probably not.
Sounds like a hassle but I guess I can do that. Don't they have a way to prevent people doing that though?
That does help somewhat, thanks.
Since you're Australian too, I may as well ask this. What are the best servers for us? I didn't put much thought into it when I first started playing, but it's come to attention recently that I think my server is incredibly shit for me.
>fc mate gets wind up ifrit

An honestly silly plot of getting the spells for Summoner since I have it at 60, but doing each dungeon I would normal get that spell at to ease into it.
Tell him to try the Mammeteer title if he has it, most of the Wind-Up's only do things if owner has that title active.
Alternately, tell him to stop being a scrub and get the mammeteer title, then smack him about a bit.
Thanks for the tip bud.
There was never a 1 fantasia use per character limit. There was a hard cap on the number of fantasias you could buy on your account as they were account wide. They changed that over a year ago. Now, fantasias are bought and sent to a specific character with no limit on the amount you can purchase.
Working on resetting my sleep schedule.
By idling and streaming a different game.
Is the next expansion confirmed yet?
They've been hyping Meracydia ever since 2.0. All dragons we've fought so far have been crippled by Garleans (Twintania, Bahamut) or weakened (Midgardosmr, Niddhog). Does that means that dragons/Niddhog will be the ultimate challenge in FFXIV?
alright so i have not played this game since the release of final coil and i was on balmung then. i am now on sargatanas because two of my normie irl friends wanted me to play but they are not awake right now.
would anyone on sargatanas like to spam the vault or any other dungeon? im 58 on my main job right now.
hope the next expansion focuses on garleans t-b-h
late xth for roegadyn boyfriends and
wiping for 3 lockouts in a4s i want to die
what does it all mean!?
This was the one for HW.
Lances of light herald the dawn
Beckoning shadows deeper still
Splendor dances with shades
Unsheathed, a rime kissed blade
Spills crimson o'er fields of white
yeah i guess you can't play. wouldn't want your parents to wake up because of you playing video games at 4 in the morning because you are unemployed and live at home because you're a "performer "
Performance, eh? I loved doing plays and musicals in high school, but haven't really had the time to be able to do it while working full time in adulthood. Though sounds like you probably do something more talent oriented?
Does the server you play on matter at all?
Are there any well known 'dead' servers in the primal group?
I got the humble bundle freebie and don't want to end up on a shit server if I decide I like this game.
I'm working on my improv skills so I can be a more grounded actor. Work has made it difficult to juggle here and there, but I manage. My plans this year is to be more focused on pursuing acting and performing in general.
The most well known "Dead" server in Primal is Ultros, most of the people here originated there before spreading off into the shit we have now
Still a small amount of /vg/ players there, but don't expect a lively presence
>tfw you miss the Balmung from the times the cancer was concentrated on Ultros and [email protected]
>tfw balmung the patch before leviathan was put into the game
i played from like 2.1 until final coil and just resubbed today actually and that was definitely the most comfy time on balmung for sure.
i am now stranded on sargatanas with two of my real life friends and they hardly play ever.
>Balmung wasn't overrun by troglodytes

2.0/2.1 were truly the best times.

What do I do with them
I'm trying to work on my glam too, in preparation for my relic that I should get tomorrow/the next day.
This is what I have so far (which do you prefer, left or right?), making some adjustments now. Any tips/ideas would be nice.
I literally just sent one to bed by promising I'd sleep if she did first.
such a nice girl.
get in balmung? or.
Hmm, I would prefer right, mainly since the Bard pants are absolutely horrible looking.
I haven't played around that many Bard gear myself. I'm 52 myself and haven't seen too much gear. But you can't go wrong with the Bard shirt.
I was planning on working on a new hat, gloves are ignoreable and the standard bard shoes are really nice.
My only problem is I hate using more than 2 of the same item from the same set. But the right side is nice.
this is the true final fantasy 14 experience
it's not that mnk does more damage, its that drg leads to high raidwide damage.
obv mnk does more single target, but why bother when a drg does a little less damage but boosts others damage by so much.

Add it to the filter with
I like the pants, besides the fact that they look low-res as fuck. The gloves are nice too, with sets like these, I like to have as much jewellery as possible.
I get what you mean though, I would prefer to have some variety over a pre-made set. I was thinking spats/long boots (void ark?) might look nice too, as well as actual gloves, not sure yet.
The color scheme of the vintage gear fits the bow so well, I really want to make something good out of it.
Dying helps a ton too. Thanks to a very nice Elezen, she was able to provide a lot of stuff needed.
I suggest dying a few things to match, mainly the hat and boots to be honest. Since the hat feels like a very heavy shade of blue.
glad all of that is just vague to me now.
this is different from people who clear content sitting at the bench and shitposting how?
Hmm, yeah I was thinking that too, I wanted to make it either white or light purple to fit the shirt, but the problem I have is that the dye-able hat has gold chains on it, instead of the silver on the vintage, which fits the rest of the set, and the bow.
I wrote down the ideas you suggested, as well as some more I came up with, I'll look more into it tomorrow.
>ignores and blacklists L.D. despite him buying her over €500 worth of shit
Hope he has learned his lesson
>sitting in queue for 25 minutes
>computer starts freaking out
>have to restart pc
WAKE ME UP
they dont post 20 screens of their ugly cat every thread and actually do something other than sit at the bench?
do you actually not see the difference between people who sit at the bench all day and people who actually play the game?
i am indeed not on gilga
i am on sargatanas
are you new or are you pretending
she/he is pretty nice ya.
no I just fail to see the point of taking this thread so serious I follow strict posting etiquete's.
don't get why you have so little going on that you actually get mad someone is doing something you don't want on an imageboard.
not trying to roast you.
I wouldn't say they're nice.
Everytime they talk I want to slap them until they bleed from the mouth.
But I REALLY like them for some reason. Maybe pity? I dunno, I wanna hug them and tell them everything is okay
But when they talk I wanna strangle their mouth.
Whats a good way of making gil? Im broke as fuck.
Oh I know a good way you could make some gils
yeah i feel you my friend this server feels pretty dead.
my two best friends were out of town for the past two weeks and i missed them a whole bunch and wanted to do stuff with them and they told me they were playing this game on this server and when i heard they weren't on balmung and i would have to transfer i knew it was over.
this is the largest group of people i have seen in one place so far
No doubt about that.
still doesn't answer my question though, why do you care what people do on an imageboard in a specific thread known for its poor quality posts.
if you are legitimately seething with rage or frustrated from posts like this you should consider not browsing this place, especially if this is all there is here and has been for years.
that sounds messed up, I think they are nice. They thanked me for crafting (i'm just going to say her) something for her a long long time ago which I completely forgot about but she apparantly didn't.
sounds like a person whose really fond of people she hangs out with.
I miss when Titan was relevant content.
I wish they would create some sort of incentive to do ARR endgame fights with synch. My biggest issue with 3.0 is that it did away with all those cool fights I liked.
do you not see the irony in a grown man lecturing an attention whore on wasting her time here instead of playing the game while said grown man is wasting his time here lecturing people instead of playing the game.
my friend i have no idea who that is
No not really
Especially because I am playing the game right now
But surely you won't understand, being too busy posting le smug girl face while defending your neckbeard pretending to be a cute anime girl
>Especially because I am playing the game right now
Sitting on the bench while anonymously shitposting in the thread about the people sat next to you is not playing the game m8
Dude she's not dead
Look at all the fucking people that were supposed to be dead
"lmao np I was just disintegrated in the aether and I just came back like that and now i'm twice edgier than fucking sasuke xDDD"
She will be back with a grimdark armor and a 2serius4u expression
>Use Blank on cd
I would hate someone like me if I was tanking.
The difference is that they won't do shit to the 1.0 cast because it would dishonor Tanaka.
But characters created for 2.0 and 3.0? Fuck em they can kill them off as much as they want.
Well the only person who mattered IS dead, and he won't get any BS to bring him back.
no I meant the image I posted, it's cirie from the witcher 3.
I'm in NEET now.
roulette fun with pyrrha today, nice girl.
really like her sense of humor.
>being too busy posting le smug girl face while defending your neckbeard pretending to be a cute anime girl
I don't know what you're talking about, I'm not defending anybody.
I don't know who the anime girl neckbeard is supposed to be.
Just pointing out that it's funny you think lecturing people on an 4chan isn't a waste of your time and energy as much as an attention whore is wasting their time getting cheap attention.
Don't forget the part where she reinvented herself as the "kitkat" girl- selling crafting kits for 200-300k each and constantly complained about how little money she was making off it. Now, she's claiming she made 5 million a day when she was doing.
I wish. They only did that for the 1.0/2.0 scions and main characters, for status quo maintainment. Can't have that disrupted
But ALl the heavensward people were introduced, developed, and killed off for pure shock value since there wasn't prior attachement
"Oh we didn't actually kill the scions... but we DID kill Hauche and Iceheart! LOLOLOL"
Eating a ban on the OF was worth it for posting that Yoshi is a fuckface
I hope you have the Dreadwyrm Hat ready.
first dungeon since unsubbing in july and healer die to something random and we wipe
honestly just why
people still can't do this dungeon orsomething just fuckin kill me
Reminder that almost all of these characters "died" as well.
most of the people that i made neet to play with in the first place stopped playing/quit the fc, so we decided to put it in the pastebin and invite whoever wanted to join. having more people to play the game with is nice
>arguing about sera
is this really the best way to spend a sunday morning
Im stuck at work listening to haitians try to mimick lil john... i just want to hit 60
Not really FFXIV related, but have a listen anon.
I'm expecting Haurchefant to pull a Louisoux, and become a primal that we have to fight in A11.
A lot of little things that have me feeling overwhelmed right now. That, and I haven't gotten a good night's sleep in a few days.
So I'm reduced to blog posting about it since I don't want to bother my friends.
I'll stop now.
I love these, post more
Get drunk, it's fun
Elk please stop being a slut you don't need it
It's alright, stressed out about what might I ask? No need for in-depth details, just the general would be nice.
Have you tried to take any vitamins to help? If this keeps up, I suggest taking Magnesium pills, it's a great vitamin that most foods don't give. It helps with sleeping and waking up, literally makes you feel refreshed and stuff.
i was welcome in pure though and have been told numerous times that if i wanted to join again i could. i got along with most people there. diego was never really as bad of a shitposter as me, though.
is this a certain elezen i might know?
why aren't you on steam? i'm watching bane videos and wanted someone to discuss them with...
i was thinking about changing my name to Doctor Pavel but I don't get paid until next friday...
I'm not, but thank you.
Just a lot of little things. Nothing too bad. It's all coming together at once and making me panic a bit. I'll be back on a normal schedule soon.
I never take any vitamins or anything like that. I guess I could try.
He would give me an almond and honey frape if I asked nicely right?
Knocked out 2.1-2.4 in a day. Heavensward soon. Getting sick of killing primals are who are chill as fuck.
I liked the time she started her own FC and house and a new place for people, then it all just backfired and she fucked off back to a diff FC leaving the FC to die after how much she campaigned it would be a great and helpful FC.
Don't be a creep.
The best !
>primals who are chill as fuck
It's really a shame that their existence kind of fucks the world, otherwise I think that we'd be able to make a powerful ally out of Ramuh, maybe even Titan if you could somehow be diplomatic between Limsa and the Kobolds.
I should really do all the Beast Tribe quests for the lore. Are the older ones as good as the Ixal and Vanu ?
I know that feeling to be honest. I'm suddenly slapped with more debts than I can count all of a sudden. So I'm a bit stressed out since my finical situation is pretty shit.
But vitamins works wonders, I suggest it, it's for a much healthier living also!
>yfw you wake up next to that lala.
>Are the older ones as good as the Ixal and Vanu ?
I only did the kobold one
The questline is basically pic related
It's pretty entertaining
Yeah I haven't really done PvP yet but a friend wants me to come with so I decied to make a PvP set/glamour to enhance the scenario
I'm expecting it to happen eventually, or for her to go away
"What the fuck have I done"
Right now I have only 13500 on tank, being full vit would make me 17k, I'm sure healers would like it, but fuck them. I'm MT alex and void with my 13k.
>remember Omega Weapon? Well I actually put a stop to any plans to use it so yeah that plot isn't going to come full circle any time soon
>Also Nanamo is alive so I didn't kill her. As a matter of fact I TECHNICALLY saved her. You really shouldn't have resisted; the Scions would probably have not gone missing without their little melodramatic escapade.
>oh by the way the Imps have a new flagship, so let's just put this whole sub-plot about a change in government that we've been building up for the last year to bed for another expansion or two
>Am I actually an Ascian? Do you really care at this point?
fucking end ur life
Bonus attributes are inconsequential when you've over 1,000 with good gear, even for strength. Almost all of your damage intake is handled by cooldowns. As such, it doesn't make sense to clamber for vitality when strength is less of a loss.
The new VIT calculations they have planned for 3.2 is going to change things though when we're forced to use fending only.
Being Eb'd sucks. You miss out on so many nice things.
I guess, but, I don't think they're interested in EBing me. Just fun 'stuff'.
>Because password entry has failed multiple times, you will not be able to log in for several minutes
make an alt on gilg and i'll drown you in hugs
why would you wish death upon your own kind. you'd think it would be other races.
this isn't me
Oh, you'd shoot me eh?
Y'sthola's return, Matoya's introduction and the aether ram subplot in general felt more organic at least than the hasty Uldah wrapup.
Uldah in general was infuriating. The civil war arc, which took up 2 patches, happened almost entirely offscreen, they use the assassination as nothing more than a segue to force you into Ishgard then hastily retcon any dramatic developments that might upset the status quo.
Nanamo's return was the worst.
>please ignore her asgonised expression, blurred vision, violent contortions and death rattle; twas merely a sleeping draught :^)
I missed the memo.
MT is supposed to grab adds against Faust now? Always let OT do it.
Let's be real here. That's not Nanamo. That's a well carved simulacrum made from Raubahn's arm because he can't handle that she's dead.
can i get a healer on aether to smash that like???
its the vault...
Yeah, but now he's just got himself wrapped around his own finger.
The entire Ul'dah thing left such a bad taste in my mouth. The resolution just turned the entire plotline into a hook to get you to buy the expansion, and then reverting it all once you'd given them your $40.
The worst thing is, of course, that any sort of cliffhanger for Heavensward will just feel like it's more of the exact same thing, because why wouldn't I expect this kind of shitty treatment ?
People always talk about Haurchefant coming back like they WANT it, but if that shit happened I think I'd just immediately drop the game, because it really would mean that nothing is permanent or matters in the story.
no!! means no!!!!
I'm on Adamantoise, and according to lodestone you are Cactuar. We're apart, a shame
It seems that's a more popular choice now. I used to be OT and grab adds as well, but guess people do MT grab all more frequently now.
You are the coolest, no lie
>empathy reserved for people who echo your personal philosophies

>sorry we messed up A3S guys
>lower the DPS requirement in a hotfix? Nah, that would make too much sense, wait a few months
It's like they WANT raid groups to die, maybe finding an excuse to never make savage modes again.
Lowering the DPS requirement of 3 is not the fix. Fixing the difficulty curve of the next raid tier is. A3S could have been the final fight. A4S should have been something else entirely.
A3S is not too difficult. Get better or tell your group to get better.
There's always plenty of space here by the fire place if you decide to transfer,anon.
In all seriousness don't come to kektaur it kinda feels dead...
I fucked a tree once. It was on goblin though. Besides the tree fucking im sure you will enjoy balmung, welcome!
I only just recently got re-settled on Adamantoise, so I won't be going anywhere else for a long time, if at all. Very cute cat, by the way, though!
save bene for when he doesn't interrupt or use heavy CDs for final sting. You can also interrupt it yourself with Fluid Aura or a swiftcast Holy, you wont have to bother going into cleric for eithe rsince you just want the CC and dont want to have 5 seconds of no healing.
if a second one gets off and he doesnt mitigate it heavily or something, he will probably die, your best bet is to get through the wall ASAP if it can get downed before he dies.
also i4i is amazing on huge pulls like that.
Yeah but the stories you heard were all trunkated. You're getting more of it now, with all the branches in the tales.
Yeah I know I'm a little late, but I'm a real sap for bad jokes.
Please let me
cut you open and fill you with butter.Then I'll put cheese and bacon bits,on top.Then I'll but you in the oven for about 15 min on 350 or until you interior is nice and fluffy,and the cheese is melted to perfection.Finally I'll top you off with green onion and sour cream,and let you sit for 5 min till you are ready to eat.
>Want to Farm Thordan EX cause I wanna collect weapons.

I just want to have fun with the game again.
Me too, let's learn thordan togeter
re-add me on steam I can't find you
I've already cleared it at least 10 times too, traded in my fragments for the axe.
But I'm just super insecure about possibly dragging groups down and getting flak for it. I know I can do the fight and that my DPS is passable at least, I'm just anxious about people getting mad and calling me a shitter.
Stabilize Ul'dah, make him seem like less of a badguy to raubahn/warrior of light/everyone else because he "saved" her, makes everyone fear/respect him because of all the strings he pulled behind everyone's back.
(Unnamed Neko) snuggled into Seto's chest, wiggling that cute perky butt of hers on his crotch while she rested her head on his shoulder. Teasing him lightly grinding against that bulge, her small hands caressing his thighs.* Yes, sir.
It never ends.
Don't ask me where I got this
Yeah, I'm unfortunately on a backwater kinda server. Don't think I ever ran into anyone from the thread on Cerb. A damned shame.
Good luck to us both, anon. Hopefully we can both get our Thordan farming done with as little bullshit from others as possible.
So was I the player suppose to be like I'm cool with Lolorito, because that's what I got from the MSQ, because I don't know about you but I won't be cool with a jew faggot like Lolorito. He's not a faggot dark knight he's just a faggot.
Because there is pretty much no way that things would've ended well for him if he had killed Nanamo.
He would not have been able to cover it up forever and people would have rebelled sooner or later.
I won't. I never PF anything for the reasons you described. Now that my group died I basically sigh on to do daily GC turn ins and occasionally level something. Or I chat with friends in different servers.
It's a begrudging acceptance. Technically Lolorito DID 'save' her, and to do anything to him would actually be against the law and legitimate assault/murder no matter how much you hate him, so you have to grit your teeth and deal with it.
Ooh, my bad! I left my own static before HW, moved to a new server for a fresh start. Haven't joined a new FC at all, just been minding myself and doing shit through PF. Some friends joined me on the new server with HW, but now they're all on break until the next patch.
I really wanna keep playing this game, but really the bad aspects are starting to outweigh the good ones. Shit sucks.
The player has no agency within the story.
What you feel as the protagonist is ultimately of no consequence.
Hell if it were up to me I'd have taken Baelsar's offer, landed myself a position as Legatus and conquered Eorzea together with him while gleefully slaughtering those subhuman, Eikon-summoning beastmen.
But that's clearly not a direction Square Enix's writers want to go in so whatevs.
Lolorito is pretty much running Ul'Dah behind the scenes anyways, why the fuck would he want the monarchy dissolved? He has a perfect situation for him to keep on raking in cash, which is pretty much what any Ul'Dahn lala strives for.
What he didn't want was a sudden change in government (she was planning to abolish the monarchy), and didn't like what Teledeji was planning within the syndicate. If Nanamo had actually died, there would be guaranteed a shake-up to the status quo of Ul'Dah, which would fuck with him more than anything. With his plan he was able to keep running things the way he wanted, and Teledeji was out of the picture entirely. A win-win situation for him.
It's not even that, it's just the Scions are grossly incompetent and the Garleans has the most pertinent and permanent anti-primal solution; which as the hero of light is your prerogative in order to reduce the strain primals put upon Hydaelyn. Remember Empires aren't always evil; after Nael was gone there's really no reason for Eorzea to remain independent. And subhman genocide is a damnsight better than playing an endless game of "primal whackamole" with the beastman tribes- it's not as if they're going to stop summoning their gods.
>IRL friend plays on NA
>Bunch of my other NA friends also want to play together
>Join his server
>End up leveling past everyone due to timezones
>One stops entirely
It's a special kind of hell. Not played an actual MMO in years and I can level too efficiently.
Not him, but yea that would be great if FFXIV was a sandbox game, but it isn't. It's basically a JRPG and you know how much JRPGs are full of libtards with such indoctrination as any war is "bad" and the poor are just victims of circumstances and kept down by "the man".
The thing is that the Garleans are attempting to stop the beastmen for the wrong reasons. They fear (and covet) the power that the primals have, which is why they tried to harness and control it. The warrior of light's motivation is different. Take for example, Ultima Weapon. It did not dissipate the aether of the primals, it trapped it and used it to power the machine itself. This isn't what you actually want to happen, because the problem of the world itself literally being depleted of aether is not only unsolved, but worsened.
Lolorito is a high-ranking official who is still in command of many warriors/guardsmen stationed throughout Thanalan. The last time there was a civil war, the Empire rolled in and buttfucked the nation while they were busy fighting each other (Ala Mhigo). NOBODY wants this to happen.
What good would it do? Start a revolution? The syndicate members each have private armies AND the brass blades. When push comes to shove, we've seen that lolorito can shove really goddamn hard..
It's not like the tribes are summoning their primals for no reason. Kobolds and Sahagin did so to defend themselves against Limsa Lominsa, the Hive summoned Ravana to deal with dragons preying on them, and most importantly, the Sylphs did so to defend themselves against the empire.
Also, the empire would enslave and assimilate Eorzeans in their army, you either deal with it or die, like what they did with Ala Mhigo. That's evil as fuck in my book.
The Scions aren't incompetent, they're trying to find a solution that doesn't ends in a bloodshed for BOTH sides, not too different from what Iceheart tried to do.
