No /xivg/, YOU are killing the game here.
So I was planning on picking up a Ps4 tomorrow so I can do crafting and gathering while I get drunk in bed.
Obviously I can't continue playing SCH and MCH on a controller so my question is can I play a tank optimally on a pad? Are there any high execution moves with WAR or DRK that make playing on pad difficult?
You can play anything on controller. The game is literally designed for it. You have more than enough easily accessible buttons for any job, so just play what you want and make your own skill layout.
You disappointed me for the last fucking time, anon.

Tank Player Penis Size power ranking by Job
Secure in himself, mirrors the real life satisfaction of those who spend time with him in his job, playing the one which supports his team the most.
Ranges from a serious, calculating player on the high end, to an edgy teenager on the low end. This job shows the most variety in players.
WAR: 4.4" or less
Only played by children and men so insecure with themselves that they need to gain self worth from "that fukken sick 5digit cleave BROOO"
What is with people who play tarus obsession with anything related to tarus?

I never see other races hype up the presence of their own race so much.
I have nothing against tarus but its fucking annoying because I see it all the time.
What if you are a lalafell just because you like the way armor looks on them, and you want a tiny chocobo? Does that make me a pedo?
fuck your list anyway race choices mean nothing about the person playing, that's like judging someone based on the toppings they choose at subway

Yes hello is this cat hour? Meow
MCH is fine on controller. Just need to use the L2+R2/R2+L2 expanded hotbars. If you tihnk any part of this game is "high execution" with a controller then you're weaksauce bruv.
>literally doing /deny in your pic
why are you a creep. stop
You want some legitimate advice?
Give your character flaws. Weaknesses. Make them actually HUMAN. They're not some god-modding retard, if you do that you're not going to get ANY rp.
Whenever you make a character, think of their quirks, kinks, their problems first. Build around that and their central theme.
Her fault for dressing like a slut on our date.
The age of old ebins is passing, never thought I'd see the day or be one of the few remaining.
I'll keep waving the flag until they pry it from my cold dead hands
No, it passed a long time ago. You're just confused because you see a few people from a year ago, but 2 years ago? Those people are gone save for 3-4.
I was just kidding around.
My actual character is a cute, stuttering
actual stutter not the cutesy shit others domidlander guy who grew up an orphan on the streets of Limsa. Other kids made fun of him for his stutter so he spent his time alone, digging his nose into books and grimoires instead of playing with the other kids. He. When the arcanists guild was established in Limsa he decided to join it as quickly as he could. After becoming a novice and having to a point where he has to study for himself, he was a great opportunity in becoming an adventurer as he could explore all the wonderful lands he read about ehen growing up and hopefully see some new ones so he could too write a book and have people listen to him without him getting flustered.
It's nothing special but I like it.
Being here for a while but still flying under the Ebin Radar is the best way to be.

I don't go to reddit unless I absolutely need to especially after if you visit some of their other sections like that one where people go in and submit their drawing and commission drawings. So I just stay away.

New player here, enjoying the free trial for now, and wondering if I should buy the game. I am a bit concerned about progressing into the new expansion. Is it as bad as some make it sound? I mean the post 50 grind you have to do in order to start leveling again.
It's not that bad. Takes maybe a day or two of questing before you can make the new expansion content but to be able to do it without learning the story makes no sense anyways, so just power through when you get to 50. The ride is pretty fun, so enjoy the game Anon.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what games to play? I'm getting burnt out with FFXIV and I need something to play for a while.
I was thinking of trying another mmo such as Guild Wars 2 or Wildstar since they're free to play. I can't play tera because I don't have enough memory I think since the game causes to "skip" and then it goes to lag mode.
Yeah this game is so formulaic to the point of having nothing unique about it apart from its brand. Its basically like a replacement for people who are hopelessly addicted to the MMO formula but refuse to play other games because they're "dead"/"bad"/"p2w" and then they'll jump onto the next big hotness when it comes out
>tfw thats exactly what i did
at least my glamours arent smushed no more
You clearly don't understand why sticking a word only you would understand on something, would confuse other people, especially your "normie" friends. Please, just kill yourself.
It's literally Finay Fantasy References: The MMO. You should at least try the free trial. I mean the current "final" zone is essentially the entirety of the Floating Continent/Kefkas Tower, not to mention the warring triad statues are physically there and I even think Fiend is going to be a trial next patch.
Whats with all the pseudo-hardcore shitters who play this game? Do they think it's actually hard outside of getting world-firsts?
It's literally designed for retards with controllers, 2.5 second GCD? Fucking LMAO, it's an absolute joke and the only difficulty is comprehension/memorization of basic boss mechanics
Please stop acting like anyone outside of the top 0.01% is demonstrating any actual working skill at playing video games
You are playing a casual MMO for shitters, just accept it
You clearly don't understand what intuition is because anyone who plays XIV would be able to meld together the meaning of "retirement MMO" if they had any. Limit break yourself, my man.
this pasta is old and stale.
Don't forget next month FFXIV will be holding some esports wolves den to the point that the devs are adding in spectalor mode.
Which I think will bomb because this game was not meant for pvp. The latency, the 2.5gcd, the boring affects, no job variability, no open world pvp, no specific pvp servers. This game just isn't meant for pvp.
Your other points may or may not be valid are definitely arguable, but open world pvp has absolutely nothing to do with having a competitive and well regulated pvp scene. Open world pvp is almost exclusively the domain of people blowing off steam by killing vastly weaker players then leaving when the player inevitably logs onto a stronger character meant for pvp or a witchhunt forms.
Little boy gets POUNDED by Hairy Black Men.
While some stuff makes no sense (lack of open world pvp and 2.5 GCD) yes I think we need more gameplay diversity to make this game more suitable for having spectators. And stuff that should have spectator mode, like triple triad or vermilion will be ignored anyways.
I don't think you've played Wolves' Den enough to know how silly you sound right now.
what do you guys think of
>Not interchanging your ranged
Oh man dude
Let me off, screeching halt
Not my fault
Ankles tied to cinder blocks
Aye, ayeth for au ra and elezen
Like your healer? One healer dies and the game is 99% over at that point, let alone the Pacification and other CC that PLD offers to keep theirs alive
Needs to be a support role.
Add ranger and a MCH eqvivalent of a dps.
Put BRD and MCH as support jobs and add Dancer and RDM to that shit.
It's the dumbest thing ever to level archer to then just realize you're being made into nothing more than a buff bitch.
<se.1><se.2><se.3><se.1> ITS MY SUB I PLAY HOW I WANT
Yes, actually, I think 2.5 GCD can be something good for the spectator, because they can see more clearly what the players are doing.
Is the same that Bungie did with Halo. By making the game "slower" they made it more cleaner than Quake and other FPS.
>Is the same that Bungie did with Halo. By making the game "slower" they made it more cleaner than Quake and other FPS
its a guilty pleasure of mine but what ru doin
get Pure White title thats the coolest amirite guys
Dragoon actually gets abilities and traits that focus on their damage.
The HW part of the jobs focus on their damage but it still doesn't bring them even near what the actual DPS jobs can do.
Not having competitive DPS simply makes BRD and MCH not fun to play as a whole.
Can someone explain to me what "Let this be lesson" means?
So the PLD dies first.
WAR gets Purify too.
WAR has Brutal Swing, Mythril Tempest and Holmgang. Push Back too if you're retarded enough to try a knockback with something like Glory Slash.
Shit for PVP now that it has a 15s cooldown.
Cancelled out by Full Swing, WAR gets Thrill of WAR which also heals party members.
PLD doesn't even get that.
Your AST won't get time to cast a single Aspected Benific.
The guy who gets angry about avatarfags probably forgot to put an "a" there when .
"Let this be a lesson"
"Let this be lesson"
Reading it out loud sounds like you're being attacked by a retard, and with a sentence like that just makes it all the more comical.
Cover to dump damage into a HG
Glory Slash cleanses critical buffs if used to swipe multiple targets
Stun on GCD, not CD, can lock a player down completely
Pacify is worthless but it will proc often enough to fuck a melee over
Testudo negates burst
Paladin can break healers out of attunement
All of the people posting about pvp right now are retards, making up perfect situations in their head, pretending as if it is an objective measurement in content that hasn't been released yet.
Would never work in this game unless they add a "fourth" archetype, and change A LOT of shit around which would ultimately skew all the queues. How would 4 man dungeons work? Is there just one support in 8 man content?
>get tired of ff14
>try to find another mmo on the side
>decide to check rog
>dawn of midgard is the hot new thing
>play for a few days, need a guild
>join a guild
>they keep treating me like shit b/c i'm not good and my ign is "dumb as shit"
>repeat this twice
>everyone is so rude here but not in ff14
>forced to go back to ff14
You definitely want Swiftcast from Thaumaturge (level 26). Then, you want to get Virus (~level 4) and eventually Eye for an Eye (level 34) from Arcanist. You don't need to get Eye for an Eye right away, but definitely start leveling Thaumaturge for Swiftcast.
Don't worry about pvp in FFXIV is complete shit. I am sure everyone here can agree the pvp is shit especially if anyone has played other mmos. Hell, WoWs pvp is better than FFXIV.
You mean you never initiated conversation with them and you assumed that they would just invite you to everything automatically for being on their friends list? This is a common issue on /xivg/.
>So the PLD dies first.
god how bad are you? you can't kill a pld as a warrior. you berserk, you get stunned. you holmgang, they tempered will AND you get stunned, and then they pop bulwark just to mock you. a good pld isn't wearing strength accessories in pvp, they're there to stop you, not to kill you.
not to mention all cooldowns except hg work with cover.
>Shit for PVP now that it has a 15s cooldown.
diminishing returns always made it not worth doing more than once every 45s. it hurt pve far more than pvp.
you can't use hg and cover at the same time.
gla and smn are both better at breaking healers out of attunement but nobody actually fucking tries that. better for the smn to just pop hawk's eye and deal with the 90% damage penalty.
no, only paladin.
just examine their character
there is a text bubble symbol in the top left that shows up if they have something in their search info.
You can also use player search to look at it.
So what would they do to warrant taking them over a DPS? CC isn't required in dungeons when you can pull multiple mobs at once. Same for 8 man content such as primals or raids(although whats the difference)
How would a support role really contribute more than a 4th DPS in A3S?
Thats a log of niggas, but question of what they do still stands.
>How do I find people looking for ERP?
RP hubs like the Quicksand in Ul'dah, Balmung server.
>Is there any way to look at someone's search information without having them on your friend list?
Click on them and examine.
>you can't kill a pld as a warrior.
I am confident that warrior will shit all over paladin in a one-on-one.
>you can't use hg and cover at the same time.
But you can, it just bypasses your invulnerability if they go through the covered target. It's meant to bait people to switch and focus the critical HP paladin.
Not him, but supports in a 4th slot could work as long as they provide a significant enough contribution to make up the dps/healing they wouldn't be able to do. Like, at least 25% damage up full time on one or more people in the party.
They can bring either more attack, defense or replenishing buffs to the party, which would likely make up for the missing 4th or 2nd DPS. 9th slot is impractical, but they can work on it in future content if they considered a support role.
>RDM as support
Also, I wish MCH wasn't a shittier BRD carbon copy, and I wish they're a primary DPS
that uses gunblades, what the fuck SE you just lost your opportunity for a gunblade job.
I'd love it, I really would but seems like a bunch of shit they are incapable of balancing. Especially when you consider how lop sided the balance of the current watered down jobs are.
paladin has spirits within, royal authority, and circle of scorn for burst.
and it doesn't matter if the warrior lives. nobody's going to target the warrior because they take goddamn forever to kill and if they don't have berserk up they aren't a threat.
But you can because of diminishing returns and cooldowns. Eventually the PLD will just be hitting the people attacking his healer with a wet noodle, while the other team's AST isn't being harrassed as much. PLD might have been kinda viable in 2.x PVP because WAR didn't outdamage it, but now that WAR has tons of burst from Heavensward skills there's no competition.
yes. and when the pld runs out of cc, their team loses. that's how you roll paladin, you have to count on being able to fuck their shit up to the point where you win before they can make an organized attack.
That might have worked in old 4v4 with WHM/SCH, but it won't work with AST as a healer. You'll need a ton of burst/CC to kill one, and that's not going to happen while a PLD is babysitting its own healer from a tank and 2 DPS.
>theorycrafting for the worst pvp mmo in history
Buzzword is just a buzzword at this point
i like baguette cat
PLD was picked over WAR in the current Wolves Den because on top of the stun they had access to Glory Swing, which has a longer animation on knockback than mythril tempest because mythril stuns.
PLD had the higher kill potential in the first minute because of this and killing the healer in the first minute was a guaranteed win.
You'll probably going to bring MNK over DRG as your melee in the new Wolves Den because MNK has more burst than DRG now with forbidden/tornado
Finally hit 50. 10 more levels and I'm caught up to Carpenter. Its been a hell of a grind from 12-50, and its only gonna get worse. But I just gotta keep my eyes on the money!
What next? I don't really know what cross classes are my best bet for success in crafting, so any advice would be great.
Hope everyone is having a great day. Keep up the good work, everyone!
I had a friend working with me a little bit, and he gave me a HQ for every 5 NQ I pumped out, since its borderline impossible to HQ shit early unless you stay ontop of gear. I'm a broke ass motherfucker, so I really couldn't afford to stay ontop of gear like that. I blew through all my leves, but it was fun. He's kind of the only crafter in our tiny tiny group, so he was glad just to have someone around willing to pick up some of the slack. Didn't want to hold my hand or anything, but was willing to help.
It was a lot of fun. We haven't played together at all in a while, and even if we were just shooting the shit while crafting, its more interaction than i've had in this game in months.
Gotta pay the bills somehow. Good luck!
I would say me, but my friend already gives me foot rubs and no one can beat her strong Elezen hands!
Ah shit that's good.
Yeah it sucks how it's annoying to get HQ stuff early on by yourself. Especially if you need 10 per set of levels or something.
Meet me in Mist then!
I find it funny how people complain about ffxiv's community being too carebear, as if they would enjoy a hostile and darwinist environment with BRs, ruskies and jungle asians in some f2p mmos.
Yeah brah, society is too stuffy PC now, I too prefer to live in social housing with drug addicts and thugs who would rape gf as a joke.
if there are like 2 or 3 servers in each region that 90% of players are on, why can't they just make at least minor cross server functionality? like queuing for dungeons with friends on different servers?
a dead game wow has like 3 times as many players and servers pretty much don't matter anymore for the casual player of that game.
i have casual friends on sarga that i want to play with but i don't want to have to level an alt with the slow xp and have to do shitty story quests again and stuff
why can't this game just be good instead of shit?
Nope. Shit's expensive, friend. And while my friend in my FC could make a set for me, he's not fond of hand holding and just giving out progress. And that's completely understandable. I'd rather earn stuff like that myself, anyway.
Thanks. Now I just have to catch up on my CRP leves, wait for shit to sell, get the last pieces of the level 50 CRP gear and get to work on whatever I should do next. Even if my FC only has two active players at the moment, we gotta keep it going somehow.
Here is what I use
>Careful synthesis 2 (lv50 WVR)
120% efficiency and 100% success rate. This is going to be one of your go to synth moves. Great to have.
>Comfort Zone (lv50 ALC)
Restores 8 CP each step over 10 steps restoring 80 CP total. It costs 66 CP to initiate so you get a net worth of 14. Decent CP gain when used early on.
>Hasty Touch (lv15 CUL)
Your no cost touch move. 50% success rate but with steady hand 2, its an 80% success rate. It still likes to fuck with you tho.
>Steady Hand 2 (lv37 CUL)
30% chance boost for the next 5 steps @25 CP.
No need to explain this one.
>Tricks of the Trade (lv15 ALC)
Restores 20CP when used on a Good or Excellent status proc. It'll sacrifice the proc but its 20CP.
The rest is mostly what you like tho I go with:
Muscle Memory(lv54 CUL)
Ingenuity II (lv50 BSM)
Rapid Synthesis (lv15 ARM)
Manipulation (lv15 GSM)
Just check out the moves online and you can see why they are useful.
I mean the uncraftable artisan's set you can get in Mor Dhona by trading in unsellable mats, like lumber, not the apron with chocobos on. It's a bit confusing. Pictured is the one I'm talking about.
>Wiping to thordan for 2 hours
I just want this day to end
CHR_DATA in your FFXIV folder, just copy/paste it
Super useful. Thanks friend, saved that for future use. Guess I'll grab Tricks of the Trade real quick since I already have Hasty Touch and Steady Hand 2. From there I'll probably power through Weaver since its my next highest.
Oh, that comfy looking shit. No, not yet unfortunately. This is my first crafting class to 50, so I never really had a chance to get to work on that.
>still can't copy over UI/macros from PS4 to PC
>have to manually set gear sets and hotbars each time
I wish I was somebody's favorite boy.
Alright so I got went from 57 to 60 after a very long break from playing.
Do I just have to grind Neverreap and Fractal until I geat the drops/tomes to have full i170 gear to do Alex normal and the next set of dungeons and the EX Primals?
He's a cool guy. Probably my only active friend left playing. Best damn healer I ever met. Shame he doesn't really play anymore.
I'm usually the only person online in my FC and friends list.
>they haven't once checked game's folder because they're so used to steam cloud sync

did you know that people had to manually copy savegame files when moving between computers?
unthinkable i know.

GF and I are the only people ever online in our FC, and the only friend I have on the server who plays much is Antivia. Not that I mind though !
Sure is nice to get out of that tin can. Those things get stuffy quick. Gotta give you guys props.
I haven't gotten around to doing it but I'd like to.

I know how you feel, my helmet's gotten my face all dusty from Hydrothermal Missile residue.
Can you help me clean it off, with your tongue, preferably?

That sounds like it would give me tongue cancer.
>Technology being super lonely on Coeurl
