I'm not a slut.... Why would you accuse me of such things?
I just got told off by the coolest mother fucker in the world and I'm A-Okay with it.
Ramuh a cool
grumble grumble sexism mennist grumble grumble
maybe you should post one
xth for best wishes.
Tell me about your day, did it go well?
Ooh, haven't experienced this one for a while.
He's the single worst dad in the existence of the primals. Look at his children LOOK AT THEM.
Bots are unavoidable but also easily tracked.
File modification is something they should be stringent on though as they have no checks in place currently, leaving it open for abuse.
xth for spending all of my money on furniture
Don't take your guff out on Ramuh just because you've developed PTSD from Boar Wars, okay?
please surround me, thank you
They have done literally NOTHING to curb bots, and at this point they are actually hurting the enjoyment of the game for everyone, and you think they're going to give a shit about a nude mod lol.
If they do ANYTHING, they'll hit the guy that made it because he's charging money for it, but that's it.
He can be a bad dad all he wants, GOAT primal music
Why am I looking up tonsil stones and duct-tape wart removal, /xivg/
It's disgusting but it's fascinating
XI's done more to curb bots than ARR's ever dreamed off.
How the shit are they not able to auto-90k folks running at beyond flee speed? Doing delta checks isn't expensive to process and could be turned on in a per-zone basis.
No, it's called grumpy dumpys. If you check the sodium levels, you would see a understanding substantial spike.
There is no cure for Memeroes. Sorry.
If you hate the game so much, then why are you guys still playing when WoW has Legion and GW2 has that new expansion? You guys always talk about how they're better, so go play it.

I really wish they would rework lbs so that dps can choose between an aoe based lb and a single target based. As it stands bard lb3 is like the most useless pos that I only ever get to steal because all the melees are dead. I wanna stab a nigga with a fucking light arrow god damn it or blast a kahehameha at a pack of trash with mnk.
I can offer you a clerical alternative. Come to the chapel and pray to Halone, ask for the Fury's forgiveness.
Then you will need to spend time in confession with a local mage cleric. She will need to spend time "entering" and cleansing your soul.
One can make the argument that ranged lb is more worth on 2 targets than a caster LB if the caster is a BLM. Even though caster LB does more per target, there is more animation lock that tends to balance things out.
They should just give every tanks dps lbs too, that shit is pointless for mostly everything.
Yea but the only time that has ever really came in handly are for trash pack mobs and a1n when Im trying to down both oppressors. Idk I just feel like the lb on its own is kinda weak.
There are no Lalas in WoW or GW, anon.

It's a shitty fucking song and the worst application of the "decent BGM followed by wacky joke song" formula they use for every primal song. It fucking sucks.
>meme hair fag has bad taste
how goes the alex savage endeavors fellow gamers
When I was asking how long I had to go until HW, every response had something to say about Faith.
It ended up not being as bad as I thought it would be and it was actually kind of interesting.
>tfw dissidia was my first FF game and XIV was my second
>wacky joke song
I don't even know what to say. Is your brain made of mushrooms.
Did you even listen to the song, I hated it when I first heard it because my precious weeb ears are for Japanese only. Then I actually listened to it; best song ever.
Maybe if you realize Ravana is a warrior Primal and it's a war song.
I fucking lol'd.
I wish someone could teach me A3S desu
I just thought it was funny that my 2 jumping in points are basically full on fanservice and callbacks to previous games.
So far I've only played 012, this and type 0 and I'm interested enough to give XV a shot when it comes out in 50 years.
Im not, im trying to figure out why.
this is my fault
Dunno if I change back im prob gonna change to lighter colors or go full silver. I kinds enjoy the face but starting to dislike the edge eye, looks nice with sundet lighting but everywhere else its meh.
>bought the game
You bought your first month
milly doesnt talk but i guess that made them a good replacement.
xivg one, invite only (i think?)
somebody whos still in it can link you it
That's not proof, anon, but it is nice sounding.
it was posted like twice a day and that's two times the amount it takes to flip my pancakes.
I know and i regret it everyday

no thanks senpai
here is my attempt at a c@
Literally the best people left/rarely talk anymore
It used to be great but it became a victim of its own popularity and all the piss drinking ERP hugbox sperglords joined and the actual interesting people moved on to greener pastures
but I just joined today...
nah I left at a good time
Suncats are better suited for dick riding. Give that a try?
Easy. Just advertise it in the search comment and hang out in public until a fellow creep approaches you.
Roll sun cat for better skintones the eyes are eh but im not the one to talk
How about which is the best FC? Best meaning active, talkative, not too many memers/erpers.
Also, how limited am I if I don't have Heavensward? Is it all just endgame stuff and I'm fine for a while?
A leveling buddy/just someone to help me remember the ropes would also be appreciated I guess.
Well I'm bored of running the same dungeons over and over again.
I'll see you guys later.
>That person who only ever does content/things/cuddles with you when you approach them first
>Never get offers of it in return
This personality type is rotten. You ever think your friends might want you to ask them to do something?
I was gone for not even 3 fucking days.
How did it happen this time?
>posting other c@s butt
Stop pretending you don't like dressing like a slut and showing that cute brown body off.
Does this mean i have permission to fap to your c@ in the future?
Stop having stupid expectations of your friends. Have you ever considered they may not even want to do the content you are doing, but just want to hang out/spend time with you?
That's how relationships work, dude. Once a pattern is established people are comfortable with it and often times expect it to continue the way it has.
I understand it probably feels like you're the only one making an effort, but they don't necessarily have any obligation to do things with you when you ask but they do anyways, right?
I don't mean to be rude but I think you've got it alright if there's somebody who wants to do things with you when you approach them.
>they only ask for help with their tedious boring shit
>expecting me to offer them something good in return
No, fuck these people.

>Dark Passenger MP cost removed
>Abyssal Drain MP cost removed; 5s CD
That'd be pretty much perfect. Really, when is the last time you used DA for Dark Passenger? It just costs too much fucking MP for what you get out of it.
>ask for help with tedious boring content
>no one helps
>ask for help with lucrative easy content
>everyone's up in arms
If they don't help with the first, I won't ask with the second.
Hilarious you would even bring me up in this conversation. Go back to orbiting each other's dicks and leave me out of it.
The low level armour in this game is even worse than WoW, god damn.
Any recommendations for a fun first class to play? I'm on rogue at the moment, seems decent
It finally happened, the day ZR finally clears A4s
Xav had just come from an actual relationship before meeting me and never had to do a long distance one.
In the end it just wasn't the same to him, I kinda expected it and he spoke to me about it so I understand where he was coming from.
He was a really nice guy, hot too.
I'll give you 100,000 gil to sniff that finger. 1,000,000 to lick it clean.
Honestly the class you enjoy will come down to your enjoyment of interaction with class mechanics plus your liking of the aesthetics. One factor being low will make it unlikely the other will be able to drag your interest up.
Rogue is a pretty solid class to roll with though, if that helps.
>dumbfucks trying to brute-force FATEs that are scaled to shit and back, taking nearly the entire time limit to do so instead of just letting it fail and reset to an easier difficulty, ensuring it will still be scaled to shit and back the next time it pops.
Rogue/Ninja is a pretty fun DPS, I like it a lot myself and would definitely suggest to keep going and see how you like it once you're a Ninja. You might like Pugilist/Monk as well if you haven't tried them yet. It's similar but more positional heavy and maintains its primary attack power+speed bonus buff by keeping combos going.
Oh... how embarrassing. Wrong picture.
I'm supposed to be sleeping... ;w;
There are a lot of gay lalabois in Balmung. Look for lewd Linkshells and potato FCs, you will fine one soon.
Rougues are cool and fun, stay.
How's the RP on Gilgamesh? Might be transferring from Balmung.
I feel like such an accomplished bard with all these fancy clothes.
Dancing around does keep things interesting, one of the reasons I don't stick to most MMOs for long is I get bored sitting still.
We're perfectly happy here without you, who ever you are.
Not ERP, thanks
I know you're sayin LOL
but you aren't actually laughing
Same reason I stuck with it.
And watching health bars melt with that single target damage makes me diamond hard
ERP? Just some friends enjoying a picnic by the water.
so ive never tried RPing on am mmo before, and ive played a few table top rpg campaigns, and im kind of curious to try. i am on balmung, is it best to just sit in like.. one of the adventurer guilds, or look for a linkshell? i dont want to join a FC as i am already in one with my friends, but am unsure where to start.
Its really sad reading this and thinking back to how many times I've read
>Z-ZR actually plays the game! Come to Ultros!!
What's sadder is that you'll all be just as far behind literal ERPers in Midas
I'm wearing the Machinist's Artifact Chest with a some glamour armour from a recent FFXI event they did, which isn't running any more but will probably get thrown in the cash shop eventually. It gel'd surprisingly well so it's my go-to gunmans outfit.
Hoping for a good DRG chest so I can make a better Yukimura Sanada glamour out of it too.
No, I was never in GAF. ZR was the only FC I was in on Ultros. I thought Faerie was the LGBT server, or so I was told.
Also had a run-in with a lala in a dungeon who kept hitting on me that turned out to be from that server.
We would have cleared earlier if
Quentyn were here ;__;
>quentyn will never be your bf
its time... goodbye bro's
You can't glamour a class or job so it's wearing a piece of gear that is exclusive to another class or job. You CAN glamour stuff that is marked "Disciple of War" onto another that is "Disciple of War"
What this means is often a tank can glamour general Disciple of War gear onto themselves while others cannot glamour tank stuff onto themselves because it's tank exclusive.
When I said I said I wanted a DRG chest I just meant for my level 60 DRG setup.
Thanks! And I agree, I much prefer the comfy simple stuff and FF14 has that in spades.
Here you go, Madotsuki in diapers just like you asked.
did you not know about his 3.0 static with meracle and algy? obviously he didn't care about progression anymore and just wanted to have fun, ask anyone in that static because he fucked around almost the most
Reminds me of the tank I had in Sastasha the other day. Got to boss and he said
>My finger smells REALLY bad!
Then he vanished. completely ditched the dungeon.
I tanked the rest of it with Topaz Carbuncle til a proper tank appeared for the final boss and walked away with 3 commends.

>on dead server
>play by myself since my friends are mostly gone
>talk to people
>chat on several LSes
>people seem to laugh at my shitposting and jokes and tolerate me but don't really hang out with me or initiate conversation with me or bring me along to anything
i'm lonely and tired of trying to find the right people in this game, in other games it was way easier for me to get into friendgroups, but in FF14 it feels way more closed-off
So I want some pointers on MCH openers. I'm not yet lvl 60, but I feel like my opener needs to be sorted out because it's pretty inconsistent.
Specifically, do I enter a fight with 5 ammo, pop my buffs THEN set up Wildfire, or do I pop my buffs, Reload, then use Wildfire
Also, should I be keeping Gauss Barrel on at all times? I've got Feint cross-classed for when I'm forced to move and don't have procs/can't squeeze off a Split Shot.
Go sit at the Quicksands in Uldah, try and think up a bit of a background for your character and you'll be fine
If people don't approach you, don't hesitate to just go talk to them, these are social places and most people are just dying to be approached
I just approach people, say hello, make comments based on what I see, and go from there.
I haven't developed a strict personality for my character yet but I try to be enthusiastic and kind and focus on keeping a conversation going.
It is kind of like roleplaying in tabletop rpgs but the pace is different and it's mostly banter. Try to ask people to do rp things?
Best way is what>>128514019 said, have a character concept, but don't go Special Snowflake, and stick to your racial lore if you can.
Its okay to go outside of the lore box, but don't completely disregard it. Knowing where your character has been and what their goals are is possibly the most important aspect of Roleplaying.
when I use my opener on bosses, I tend to go wildfire, dot, rapid, reload, raging strikes, then I go split, slug, split, clean, slug, reassemble, clean, then just use whatever until I can repeat it.
I'm not even at 60 but that's what I do, it seems pretty neat.
remember your procs are 10 second buffs rather than combos, you should almost always do split-slug-split because your procs have no cast in gauss, but split does, so 2 splits means no cast time when you'd have a cast otherwise. the only exception is if things somehow line up to where you're choosing between a split shot or a clean shot before WF ticks off
my opener starts with two ammo, two because five ammo delays your reload far too long and messes your buff alignment up:
BFB, HE, HC, RS - hot (pot) lead (reload) split (wildfire) slug (quick reload+reassemble) clean (rapid fire + gauss round) split (ricochet) slug (head graze) split (blank) clean (turn off GB) split
the reason you drop GB for splitshot near the end is because clean/slug take much longer to register the damage, so wildfire will hit right before slug/clean do on that last GCD, while split hits just before and adds another GCD worth of damage to your WF without wasting any procs.
oh, I didn't notice you're still leveling, but to answer your other question you should just put RF on CD as soon as you can (during wildfire though)
It really doesn't matter when, as long as you aren't delaying your shorter CDs because of the very-short GCD (QR, reload, reassemble)
Oh boy.. That opener is really bad.
MCH main here.
Also RPerThe biggest thing to know is that the way MCH plays is very pattern based with very tight timing.
Here's a great guide, but TLDR?
You want to pre-buff with two Ammo and then hit four of your DPS cooldowns before you even start hitting a weaponskill.
I'd swap Gauss and Rico personally, so it lines up well with your Reload and Reassemble better.
But you have the general idea here.
Another MCH anon mentioned that our cooldown activations work in groups.
Note how some cooldowns have similar timers on it, for example Reload, Ricochet and Reassemble, or Hawks Eye, Blood for Blood, Wildfire and Rapid Fire.
Always use Rapid Fire AFTER you throw Wildfire. Biggest thing there.
uh, for what reason though? the way gauss/rico line up with those CDs, there's nothing that changes in the alignment as rico will come up during your burst at ~180s and there are no CDs that supplement rico, like how BRD would want to put IR on CD before SW/FA so it's up for subsequent casts of those CDs
the reason rico comes before GR in the guide opener is because it comes off CD during 2nd hot reapply, even though from a pps standpoint it's still more damage even to delay your GCD at that point to get GR off, and pretty sure more PPS even if hot shot falls off.
>you should almost always do split-slug-split because your procs have no cast in gauss
Hmm, I've been kinda doing that on-and-off ever since I got my full shot combo because it seemed like the smarter thing to do when you've got ammo, so it's good to know that my assumption was correct for once. I'm assuming this means I should be going Split-Slug-Split-Clean-Slug-Clean right? I mean, for when I've got full ammo.
Okay so basically, keep RF on CD but make sure it lines up with WF, pre-load 2 ammo and keep my CDs in general aligned for greater burst damage potential. That's what I'm getting from you guys so far.
At my current gear level at lvl 54 I usually see between 1.8-2K Wildfires. That's not too bad for someone with a HQ lvl 52 weapon, HQ lvl 52 accessories and mostly IW gear right?
I knew you guys were close, congrats~!
I like the earlier timing for Rico, comes up sooner, I suppose at that point its personal preference, plus, depending on the fight [Faust, Oppressor] You get the Rico in before Adds and thus damage get split. [Or in the case of Oppressor, you don't get both adds at once. I've done that.. Twice now]
Welp, what is your favorite so far? I kinda fell asleep earlier
I can see wanting to put it up in the case of the damage getting split among targets that should be ignored, but from a pps standpoint putting gauss on CD is more dips
really means jackshit in the long run though so it basically is preference
iirc mine wee higher than that at that level but i really cant remember. another thing though, for toggling gauss:
split shot + AA is more than a GB split shot
slug + AA is roughly the same
hot + AA is a decent amount more
Lead/Clean try to have gauss up for those
also remember, the reason gauss pulls ahead is the off GCD damage and crit scaling and such. don't toggle gauss if an oGCD is ready, and toggle it back on when such damage is available.
that's the general rule, but stancedancing flawlessly is barely a DPS increase.
1 or 2, take your pick of futa
Never got into the whole futa thing, however I have been highly aroused by a Touhou doujin or two where Eirin grows a penis on Reisen and molests her until it goes away while Tewi watched
So basically, I shouldn't really stress about toggling GB unless I know there's lots of movement coming?
Then again, it's not like I'm gonna be raiding as a MCH, I'm just leveling it for fun. Just wanna make sure I get it right, though.
yeah pretty much, for optimal atance dancing we're talking 2~4% DPS and I feel like even that is being pretty generous, so toggling for movement is the best option, flip gauss back on after you have slug/clean procs available because movement for more than 2 GCDs is very rare
If you wanna be an autist and get more comfy with stance dancing for the DPS, start off just toggling gauss off for hot shot since that's the largest boost and rasy to plan around.

I feel like there's been a large influx lately of DPS being whiny little chuckle fucks expecting every roulette to end in under 10 minutes
Gauss On/Off is.. oddly enough Skill Speed reliant. Yeah in some cases its a DPS gain if you know how to use it right but if you are just leveling it for fun, you can keep it on 99% of the time.

I was thinking about how mch doesn't scale and then I thought
what if SkS is godly for mch and we were wrong the entire time
You need 2.25 gcd to get 8th gcd in wildfire but there's a certain breakpoint where you'd be able to fit another GCD between a hot/lead
I need to test a SkS build out now
Hey, know that there are FCs out there and possibly linkshells that are great for newbies to RPing.
If you are on Balmung, I'm sure there will be some who will be glad to help out..
Don't let the sexual deviants get to you, I'm one of the MCH mains here, and I'd be glad to help out a newbie RPer.
>hating on the tin can
I will fight you in the street
You know, I thought the same, I really wonder if we should stack Skillspeed, not only would it help with dots and the like but what if we had 9gcds in Wildfire?
I mean, its on the relic for a reason, right?
Maybe up to a point, but you want to stack as much Crit as possible, then Det. Your WF burst is highly dependent on the RNG of your weaponskills critting, so you want to be critting as much as possible.
be careful what you say, friend. Bad things are known to happen to those who mock the Tin Can Battle Clan
It's actually my favorite piece of armor, and I've reserved a gear set specifically for walking around in it, even when there's statistically better armor
Don't know what the fuck you're talking about. I am the handsomest tomato.
SkS barely affects DoTs, but there might be some merit to trying for the 9 GCD. Reasoning is that your base weaponskills are weak af anyway, might as well get tiny bit more over tiny bit stronger but less damage.
The thing is, there's no set in stone MCH stat weights. We default to crit since its the highest damage secondary stat for most classes. I'm just suggesting alternative tests with SkS because it probably hasn't been done before, plain and simple
crit >= det > sks correct though since turret/oGCDs doesn't scale off of SkS
I know how you feel, I'm glamouring my PLD leveling set between this and Augmented Gallant + Lionsmane, it's too iconic to let it rust away on retainer
I know how that feels. I can get through the basics like playing along with emote stuff and basic talking, but it doesn't feel like I'm making any friends or anything like that.
Also been wanting to try RPing a bit since I've played some tabletops too, but not really sure how to really start.
2 days into my 30 days and I'm now consigned to my fate, I have no shot of burning though the rest of the quests to get into heavansward. 280 story quests and I'm only on 64. Fuck me leveling feels so slow.
It's a sad life for me
not many appreciate the armor
Started out this game about a little less than a week ago, barely hit level 30 today
it's been an interesting ride
as a matter of fact, I think I'm the only tin can armor bearer I've seen on this server
I want to be a tin can too.
I'd say it feels really good at 60 because of Rico and Hypercharge.
Basically a chat channel, but the great thing about them, is they are actually legit in lore, and can be used In character.
Wish we could use a similar helmet on other sets, but oh well
Ah, but you see, good anon, you've evolved into something that goes beyond tin can.
You are of the advanced can armor.
Papashan contacts you during the PLD quests with one too
Forgot the picture, but y'all probably don't care for it do yah?
Because I want to avoid leveling botany so that I can farm lightning shards for weaving ;-;
