The reason low pop servers suck is mostly because they don't get very many new players and cliques just settle into their core without caring to invite more people into them.

Medium pops usually have a steady influx of new players enough such that there are plenty of new people to interact with.

High pops are just like low pops, except there are TOO MANY people and cliques just don't want to invite anyone they don't already know/trust.

Well, Beast Tribe quests you can get from the Grand Company Headquarters of each of the three major factions. They mostly give negligible exp these days because they were designed for people levelling from something like level 43 to 50. One's for leveling crafting (Ixal) and has no involvement in this.

There's also the Vanu beast tribe questline that unlocks when you hit level 60 and is useful for levelling alts since it level synchs.

When they brought out Anima they made it so that four of the original Beast Tribes at max rank also gave out tokens. I'm not sure why, I guess it was to help people at lower levels get help on the FATEs or to give people something else to do?

Anyway the Sylphs, Kobolds, Sahagin and Amal'jaa Beast Tribes give out tokens. 13 tokens will let you buy an unidentifiable items, which is Seed, Ore, Shell and Bone, respectively. The Vanu also give out tokens but you need 18 but can take your pick of the four options. For the Anima weapon's final form you need 20 of each of those things along with some other stuff. It's a big grind and I'm about to finish it after just over a month of doing Beast Tribe quests, Roulettes and Maps.
>>
>>128642427
The beast tribes won't help too much with gear at 60, they're mostly done for mounts and for the unidentified parts for the relic. You need 20 of each, there's 4 variations and you get one every 4-5 ish~? days from one tribe.

Non-erp ones.
>>
>>128643469
Worth mentioning is when you get the original five Beast Tribes to their highest ranks (4 for the original four, 7 for the Ixal) you get a cool quest that will boost them all to Rank 8, gives you a dorky mask, the title "The Negotiator" and alternate versions of their minions.

The quest itself is pretty awesome, especially at its climax. Well worth the effort put into it I say.

if you have a private home, can you change it to an fc home later?
do you have to rebuilt it from scratch or is there no option to redo this and once you buy the plot its over?

was thinking about starting my own private fc just for shits and giggles and a personal tag i can change whenever.
also how hard is it to keep up getting credits for buffs and stuff?

>>
>>128645384
Yea if it's open you should make one and we could meet up later
>>
>>128645485
There are, and there aren't.

Mouseover macros exist, but they are worse than just not using a macro at all because they can't queue, so you lose fractions of a second on your casts, literally gaining less from spell speed stat, and losing globals over a fights duration.

And the only way to get a self cast modifier working is to put skills on a hidden bar and bind them to your modifier button, so like heal on E then put heal ona separate hidden UI bar and bind that skill to Alt+E to mimick the effect.

It's pretty shit desu.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggcaliJKE9w#t=5820
>>
>>128645607
frogot to add, that heal on the hidden bar also has to be a macro set to self cast, which also gets all the drawbacks of being a macro rather than not being one.

It's really inefficient to use them, except for skills you only use once or twice a fight. anything you use frequently. the time you lose for lacking the queueing system adds up too much.

>>
>>128646143
The main storyline makes it feel more like a real final fantasy RPG rather than an MMO.

But the game in general fits into pretty much any generic mmo trope out there.

That was one of my biggest complaints about it in beta and turned me off from the game entirely.

It's hard but to really get into it, you gotta push through those early levels enough to give it a chance. It starts to become pretty good eventually, but it's easy for the early content to just turn someone off entirely.

In the end, it's still an MMO. But the storyline stuff is pretty cool.

I change between male and female pretty often because I've managed to create multiple characters that I like a lot. There's nothing wrong with playing a character of the opposite gender, nor is there anything wrong with playing one of the same gender as yourself. It all comes down to what you find aesthetically pleasing, and anyone who uses the "I don't want to stare at man ass" excuse can be ignored because they're sexually insecure.

Then you need to ask yourself: "Does it really matter?" It's your character man, do what you please with it. I mean, I don't give a shit if you play a female just because you like staring at their asses because it's ultimately your choice and it affects nobody but yourself.
I just can't stand people who spin excuses and generally bullshit about things.

Same reason I play females in every RPG I can.

Because I don't self insert and I enjoy it more.

In these games it's even bigger since there is visuals. It's not an imagination DnD campaign. The females just flat out look better.

Playing a male character doesn't automatically equate to self-inserting, though. I never understood that particular logic.

when you're physically fit, attractive, and successful you tend to identify a lot with most main characters. so we go female characters to avoid that. fat, ugly neckbeards have a lot of trouble with this and aren't able to self-insert as male characters.

Question about DoT mechanics.

How do buffs and debuffs work with their damage? Does each tick calculate individually or is the damage determined at the time the DoT is applied?

When more than one DoT is active it seems as though both stack and tick at the same time rather than having two different timers(though the debuffs themselves are still on individual timers.) Am I seeing that correctly?

This game really forces you to pay attention and prioritize stuff like cleansing and whether or not to use an aoe heal versus a single target.

Can any of the classes carry in this game?

The point I'm making is that a guy playing a male character does not automatically equal self-inserting. Never has and never will. It's just another flimsy justification for playing as a female character, and that shit don't fly.
I mean, if playing a same-gender character was automatically self-inserting then we sure do have a lot of cat people, dwarves and elves here.

A good tank can carry an entire dungeon if he knows know to best keep himself alive, he can even carry the dps too if he's bretty good.

A good healer can also carry by doing tons of dps while also not letting bad tanks and bag dps die. Worth their weight in gold, great white mages and scholars.

And a good dps can carry a bad one since there are always more than one.

It all depends on your skill level for the job you're playing.

Good healers are rarely appreciated sadly. Tank and others can die to mechanics that are unhealable like doom and still they'll blame the healer even if he was so good that he single handedly pulled the group successfully through the fight and dungeon while doing top tier DPS at the same time. And he'll get like 1 comm from the tank maybe.

It's hard if your tank fucks up pulling or your dps bodypull or something. Which is really the only way that Stone Vigil becomes difficult.

Very nice, exactly what I had hoped for. I'm assuming refreshed DoTs (unsure if anyone other than Bards do this) don't retain damage modifiers.

Regarding Limit Breaks... do they benefit from damage modifiers at all? I've tried using cooldowns with them and it doesn't seem as though it increases damage at all. Almost as if they're a static amount of damage depending on the level/class of the person using it.

I had a hell of a time doing SV the first time. Our tank was so shit, I don't think he knew what a cooldown was. Spam healing could barely keep him alive on trash pulls, and if anyone else needed a heal, they could forget about it because trying to literally causes tank death.

DPS friend I'm doing it with gets pissed and tries to kick him. I don't want to because I'm patient and it was a challenge.

Limit break is calculated by the group's accumulated weapon damage or item level or something.

Modifiers, be they personal cooldowns or debuffs on the boss like trick attack don't mean shit.
>>
>>128649847
I give them out and I take pride in collecting them, makes me feel appreciated. Not getting them, especially in that kind of situation, just gives me the impression they didn't recognize what I did for them. Meaning, nearly break my back carrying them.

Can confirm, lived in Ireland for a few years. A light dusting of snow on the ground will cause utter mayhem.

I'm from Norway. The day I flew over to Ireland the first time it was -27°C and I had to shovel half a metre of snow out of the driveway before I could even get out. When I arrived it was -1°C and everyone was complaining about the "bitter cold".

I imagine it's the same reason why the SCH jobstone doesn't modify any of the ACN skills besides Summon and Summon II.

there's a lot more magic damage in alex than there was in coil, and DRK excels in magic damage mitigation, PLD is more tuned towards physical damage mitigation

Alex Savage had super high DPS checks and a lot of magic damage, so DRK surged and PLD fell behind.

>Compared to every piece of content that has gone before it, DRK is just-okay. No reason to take it over PLD/WAR
You're completely wrong. PLD's mitigation was never the most important thing about clearing T1-T13. If DRK had been around since ARR release, people would have figured out that tank DPS is important much faster, and used it to push phases faster on T5/T9/T13 to make the fight safer. There isn't a single old fight that PLD has a noticeable mitigation over DRK.
>>
>>128657631
hark pls sit on my face
>>
>>128657852
>PLD's mitigation was never the most important thing about clearing T1-T13
That's why WAR didn't get taken for any of First Coil, despite their better DPS and slashing debuff, and world first T5 was 2 PLDs, right?

That's also why the early clears for T9 and T13 were Vit stacked, parry maxed, Dex meld capped PLDs too, right?

Don't try to revision history to suit your case, look at the facts.

>There isn't a single old fight that PLD has a noticeable mitigation over DRK.
Except this isn't relevant anymore. Everyone looked at stuff like Delirium, Dark Mind, Dark Dance, and figured they were useless, because they were very rarely applicable in old fights. New content comes out, and it's perfect for it, so what do you think will happen?

No, that's because WAR pre-buff couldn't tank worth shit. Come on, son.

>>128658646
His argument is that DPS > mitigation in old fights though, which WAR did do better because of Maim, Fracture, Unchained, and Storm's Eye
>>
>>128658216
Why would Dark Dance be useless for old fights if early clears of T9 and T13 were parry maxed and dex melded?

I didn't play when either of those were new content, but wouldn't DA+Dark Mind be good for akh morn? Isn't wild charge a magic attack as well? What about parrying revelation?

I've never tanked any of those and I've only cleared T9 and T13 a handful of times, but I don't think your argument is that good.
>>
>>128658216
>That's why WAR didn't get taken for any of First Coil, despite their better DPS and slashing debuff, and world first T5 was 2 PLDs, right?
Because 2.0 WAR was literally broken and couldn't survive. DRK has percentage mitigation like 2.0 PLD and 2.1+ WAR.

Because it's one of their main CDs. Foresight is regarded as trash but people still take it, because it's free. Having it as a core skill, albeit on a short cooldown, was just-okay, in terms of mitigation, nothing as good as Bulwark, much like the early look at DRK.

The only magical tankbuster that I can remember, let alone magic damage that is taken over a period of 10s or less, is exactly that. However, both PLD and WAR CDs work well enough to handle it as is, without requiring a magic-only CD.

Wild Charge was relatively inconsequential to deal with, an Inner Beast and Adlo was normally enough, even at i110.

Dark Dance is a chance increase to parry, and not a large one, making it only somewhat applicable to large single hits, such as Revelation. Looking at DRK next to PLD in terms of a single physical spike, they only had Shadowskin(Rampart) and Shadow Wall(worse Sentinel) with maybe Dark Dance + Reprisal as a shitty Bulwark. This also changed in Gordias, where high damage phases(such as a Hand of Pain burn) lent itself very well to a CD with a long duration, short CD, slight effect, let alone the Reprisal proc.

Always, but it still feels dirty. Night and day difference between progressing through something with a crew of people who are new and heading in with at least half the party being able to farm.

I had an awful time tanking Aurum Vale, only ended up running it three times. Two times I had stand-around healers who bitched at me for pulling more than one pack at a time (this is after the first room), and let me die every other trash pull after I blew every single one of my CDs while they are standing there with 95% of their MP. The other time I had a completely new healer who had no fucking idea what he was doing. He took direction well and bless his heart for being honest and putting in effort, but oof.

I am a healer main so it's really agonizing to play with bad healers.

The irony is that now Yoshi has committed to making the next section of Alex Savage easier, a reactionary concession aimed at stemming the hemorrhaging subscription numbers, what you're now gonna see in 3.2 is the current crop of raiders raping the everloving shit out of Midas.

The people who've cleared Gordias Savage are now the creme de la creme of raiding; and it'll be like Goku coming out of the hyperbolic time chamber and removing his training weights. They are gonna slamdunk this shit and I fully expect to see day 1 clears as a result.

>>128660341
Too true. I've healed every 4man in this game and none of them were remotely difficult. I don't understand how people can be so bad at healing. Granted, I've been told I'm pretty easy to heal (cycling CDs properly during trash gets you that far at least) and most of my my healers have felt comfortable enough to DPS... I'm just shit scared of doing AV as a tank since I've seen it go bad so many times.

And then, when Yoshi sees day 1/week 1 clears again he'll get butthurt AGAIN and make the third step of Alexander harder than Savage Gordias just to spite people.

Japan isn't as anomalous as people think.
MMOs are a niche market over there and people don't play them as a casual pastime as they do in the west. Furthermore the Japs will naturally have less than 50 ping due to their not-shit internet infrastructure and living in the same timezone means its really easy to form statics.

They have every possible advantage and it reflects in the clear rates.

The connection disparity is on SE's shitty servers, not because of infrastructure of the west.

Yeah, the US has shit all for internet, but even the areas where it's really good, they can't compete with Japanese players because they live literally right next to SE's servers.

Also a small advantage but one that people don't really think of-- for world first, Lucrezia raided in the middle of the day, while EM and anyone NA had to do it at 3 am. Big difference yo.

There's a good deal of prejudice against Keepers in Gridania, but then there's a good deal of prejudice in general in Gridania.

Yeah, it was ridiculous. The opening was especially bad. I didn't know there'd be moogles and the only reprieve I got was from Mittens' expression.

the vows (basically scribbling in a book and staring longingly at each other and then the priest shows the room the book)

This is the only BLM gear I actually have, my normal glamour is just a beach outfit

Caster is the one role I glamour really lewdly anymore, everything else is generally full armor sets so I dont have much to show you. {I'm sorry.}

There should be a vegas wedding you can get at the Gold Saucer. You can buy it in ingame gil, there's no date reservations, and the cutscene is just one player drunkenly shoving a ring onto another unconscious players finger as a five dollar priest reads off a cue card and takes a swig from a flask he had in his coat.

Yeah. Someone said they could help me make it if the mats are cheaper than just buying it off MB. Is there a good website that lists them? I don't ever really look in to this kinda stuff.
