You have another tail, and it's by the front and between your legs.
Depending on your horns, you have a specifc way of sleeping comfortably! You're unfortunate if you get a horn that would make you pretty much sleep comfortably only by sleeping on your stomach, sitting down or standing.
I don't see how eating is difficult but I'm not really an Au Ra myself to actually know.
Now, do you still want front tail yanks?
Just force yourself. Either you use flavor of the month memes to communicate with benchers and become popular, or you shit on that and become a pariah.
Either way, you're known.
I'm pretty sure that's a ummmm you know...
I'm just a typical
face 1au ra so sleeping is sometimes hard...
It's just annoying to maneuver my hands around the horns all the time...
I don't know...you should tell me about yourself first...
dunno y u wanna do it
ya i like muscle ladies
but not in a badtouch way

You guys have any recommendations for places with good prices? Anywhere you've purchased and not gotten banned for it?
Do a lot of people get banned for RMT on this?
I didn't see you sitting with her when she was alone under that tree, friend.
True, but you can be my tankbuddy any day, buddy.

Looks like you're having trouble, weak ass soccer mom cat
Appreciate the advice. Look like they're around $4 per mil though so I'm looking at like $200 for a decent house on Gilgamesh (when added to what I have for gil right now.)
That's not necessarily out of my price range, but I'mma shop around a bit more, I think.
i love this picture desu

Someone please get this midlander and his bulge out of my face
You're fucked then.
Buy a fantasia and go futa or get ready to be called thirsty.
There's usually one or two catboys in the Quicksand at all times that are gay.
Guys are pigs and a simple "Hey there hot stuff, you up for some fun? ;)" is enough to get one in bed.
Picking up guys is the easiest thing ever in ERP cause they don't get any so they're always willing.
Shit, you can be the most mismatched character with the most horrible heterochromia and you'll still find a guy that does you cause they just ain't getting any.
Its because typically the people in /xivg/ circles that still play male are super thirsty and try to take EB relationships super seriously while the female characters mostly see it as nothing more than fun ERP. Its not that ERP isnt creepy, its that the males are trying to find their fucking soulmate on a Chinese MMO in a place as bad as /xivg/.
>doing a quest
>secluded af area
>run in a fucking whole guild RP
Thinking of going for a shorter hairstyle. What do you think?
I've been a male, female, herm and shemale but boy I have to say, being a male was by far the worst of those experiences.
Hostile responses, and you have to put 10 times as much effort than as a futa or female.
It's just my advice, if anyone here wants to ERP by dicking others, just be a futa and save yourself the trouble.
Nope, it's the whole server. I once approached some female for regular RP and after asking if they would like to do some regular RP they just responded with something along the lines of "Fuck off, I don't like guys".
I disagree on your assessment on the female /xivg/ characters.
Pretty much all the drama that is posted in these threads come from 2 female characters being butthurt about "cheating" or some other stupid shit.

Okay, I need to see this image, but with Ada's au ra and Thordan.
Ah. I waited around for like 30 mins and then I figured that maybe your internet went out something. We should continue and maybe even enact some of the stuff we talked about some time~
They dont like guys because nearly everyone on Balmung (not just here) are psychotic futasexuals with all sorts of deviant fetishes and like to pretend to be girls. They're disgusted by anything straight or vanilla.
tfw you'll never pleasure thordan and all his knights at the same time...
>tfw you will never clear Thordan.
Woops. Shitposting in another general.
Tidbit: while relaxing Mosscat only wears a shirt and underwear.
I go to try it and the groups are bad, or don't fill fast at all.
So much other stuff to do.
you can tell ippiki just caters these to just stroke his own ego
Persistance.. and finding the right Pug/Static.
I did it too.. ten times actually.
But I tell you what, fuck that fight and fuck all the "Farm" Parties that farm floor candy instead of killing THordan.
no you dont, you sneaky snake..
i dunno who you are anon but youre churning out the good shit, god bless you.
Sorry again, long day.
Pugs are bad. And even trying to fake it till you make it, doesn't always work.
Hell is fun too.
Do it anon, the world needs to see.
Which crossclass skills should I run on DRK?
I have fracture, convalescence, provoke, bloodbath, and foresight right now.
Thinking of dropping foresight or bloodbath for mercy stroke, but I don't know which one to let go.
Do you want to?
Finish a kaiser knuckles zeta or start the relic line and stop at unfinished.
I'll see what i can do
Tough call. Red au ra are pretty rare, but highlanders are nice too.

What's the best names you've come across in your travels around Eorzea, /xivg/?
What are the best lore friendly names you've come across?
Your au ra is cute, but I feel that your identity is with your highlander.

This was a drastic change.

The other fucks probably aren't trying. Or at least that's what I'm hoping. That's what I thought when I was pulling 1800 on my 170 weapon monk during the AS3 trash when the other DPS decked in 200/210 gear was pulling 900.
I am a patient man but no show, farewell.
Creating Materials from Raw goods that my retainers give me and sell em on the MB.
Its not good money, hell its not consistent either but its decent, till I run out of wind shards.
>The other fucks probably aren't trying
That happened a disturbing number of times while I was leveling NIN in the Vault.
This was before the HW dungeon EXP buffs, but across quite a few runs between Lv57 and 59 I was only outDPSed three times; once (simultaneously) by a SMN and SCH team, once by another SMN and a third time by a MCN.
It's distressing, because all I really did was DoT everyone with mutilate and weave the occasional Katon in between Death Blossoms.
I subsequently got it to 60, tested it in Alex Normal- didn't like the playstyle, and went back to SCH
This is the first thing I see when I come to Ul'dah.
This one makes me laugh because I always sing his name like Birdman
when do you get the chance to switch to the new classes they added? i'm a new player and i've seen a couple machinists and I would really like to give it a try
As long as you aren't roe/highlander/catboy we can work something out sometime.
just ask or talk to me ingame sometime.
what's stopping you?
they're locked behind the MSQ until you get to Ishgard which can be as late as 52 on another class.
when does tanking in dungeons actually start to work? everyone i've encountered so far is too overgeared and therefore it's impossible to draw aggro away from them for very long, if at all
Just create a Turn 4 Tank-mount farm party.
If you get a team of 6+ tanks in i190 gear or better you don't even need a healer.
I made one a while back trying to get some specific Allagan armor pieces and Tanks were scrambling to join.
I have an A4S PF up on Balmung for anyone interested. It's for people who would not normally see the floor and would like some exposure to it. Kind of like a school field trip! I encourage anyone to come. You don't have to be good at the game or anything. Be adventurous!
If I could enter A4S, I would, but fuck, I can barely clear A2S, and would rather start gearing up first.
As a MCH main, its very similar to Bard but not really. It relies on Burst and RNG Procs from both crits and their main weaponskills. I personally love it and wish more people would play it.
Until 50, it's slow, simple, but mobile. Your downtime consists of mashing 1 until 2 lights up, and hoping 3 lights up afterward. That's really about it.
After 50 it's slow, simple, and not mobile any more. Instead you get cast bars.
It's about as bad as it sounds. The class was created to compete with BRD but it lacks some of BRD's greatest advantages, and gets very little in return.
>average wait time less then 5m
The point is that someone who can enter would take the group inside, you don't have to clear all the way up to 4 to go into it, just enter with someone who's able. It will invalidate your weekly rewards for all prior floors though, even pages. And you may one-chest your group. So think carefully about it if you still need to clear 1/2 this week.
Everything the duty finder says is wrong.
>Adventurer in Need: Tank
>>Healer queue pops instantly
>Adventurer in Need: Healer
>>queue takes 20 minutes
>Adventurer in Need: DPS
>>extremely rare, and when it appears the queue takes 90 minutes anyway
I mostly enjoy BRD so far but it's my first class so it's easy to be biased.. if MCH is somewhat similar I should warm up to it. my only trouble is the damn cooldowns. I have five of them and three on different CDs. it's all very confusing the way instant casts work to "weave" them in my rotation. does every class have that many cooldowns?
The halonic priest gloves for WHM from The Vault.
That's correct. Like I said this is for anyone who wants exposure to the floor and for people who would not see it under normal circumstances. If you do not foresee yourself clearing A2S this week then you can come without any issue to your loot rewards and your static. I have access to the 4th floor through a friend who is also in the group and I am doing this for the sole purpose of exposing people to the floor.
Most do, yeah, Dragoon has the most Weaponskills I think. Weaving cooldowns between Weaponskills is actually the main mechanic of this game.
The way Bard and Machinist work is the fact they save cooldowns to be used at once, for example, A lancer ability Blood for Blood and a Archer ability Hawk's eye must be used together. Rule of thumb with Bard/MCH, use similar cooldown timers together.
I'm still on
just doing dungeons with a friend
Good question, though some would question the same thing about Balmung.
I personally like the server, sure, we have shitlords and the like but.. hey.
I came for the RP, stayed for the gameplay. Does that make me a RPshitter, or someone who is good at this game?
thanks for the offer but i'm on cactuar. I don't think I need a demonstration anyway, I just need to pull up a guide or two and read it.
there's just one thing that puzzles me concerning weaponskills.. I can see that there is a delay between the time you launch the attack and the time the attack seems to hit/apply its effect. when are your stats taken in account? is it when you press the button, or before you see the damage number?
for example, it sometimes happen that my straight shot buff expires after i've shot the arrow, but before my wind bite was applied. would it still get the 10% crit in this case? same with any cooldown
4th sixty time.
I don't have any caster gear when I get there.
I have to sit in queues.
I'm sorry. But.. at least you are close to being done with that part of the Relic, rest is smooth sailing from there.
Plus, you got two of the worst zones done, just need Azys Lla.
Dude I'm not even going for i210. I just want the i200.
I've done this twice already.
It's not hard. Put Bio, Bio II, and Miasma on mobs. Keep your summon alive. Buff your summon when you can. Put up eye for an eye on your tank/pet when you have small group on your. Are you just starting out? If you are then have your summon attack, gain a bit of hate and wait a moment before you attack. In a large group cycle it through the mob and attack what it's attacking after you're sure all the focus is off you.
Dissipation is dumb because it's a lot of work mostly for more aetherflow stacks for DPS. But practically it's good for switching fairies, or legitimate "oh shit" moments when another healer dies or something.
Dissipation would be a lot less shitty if at the end of it, it gave you a reduced cast time and MP cost of resummoning your fairy. As it is, the effect of it is "okay", but it more or less carries an additional cost of having to spend 1768 MP and also burn a Swiftcast, which pretty much eliminates the benefit of it except in a few ultra-niche scenarios.
what are those keys that I always see people have on their hotbar with the class icons?
There's a disturbing lack of (Japanese-drawn) XIV porn in general.
Whatever aspect of XI it was that precipitated hundreds of mithra and elvaan doujins it's clear XIV is found wanting. Ultimately there's like, what, maybe 10 doujins currently on sadpanda? That is pitiful in comparison.
No, it's always been level 50.
First level 50 I ever got. I swapped to MRD shortly after I reached 50, and hadn't looked back since.
Leveled pally to 50 in that time frame as well shortly after WoD came out.
Make classes like in this screenshot.
PLD WAR DRK RP outfits, helpful shit yo.
I'm going to sleep for the night, got my Earth Crystals gonna do Azys/Dungeons tomorrow. And then more fate farming.
>The GSM questline even talks about her flabby ass.
>There's no doujins of it being pounded.
You can tell this game is dead because japan doesn't make doujins for it. If it's a japanese game with no japanese porn it's dead in the water.
Currently a BLM as its my only 60, actually trying MRD out as my first tank. I want to love it and push for endgame stuff the few times I've tried dungeons as a tank I was pretty bad, and its sorta dishearenting because tanking seems intsresting later on.
>people still can't clear alex normal without fucking up
This playerbase is absolute dogshit.
Definately get Flash, as its a requirement, mentioned here >>128843886. Overpower is great too for getting things going.
Get the latest weapon and the plundered level 15 armor will help you a lot and will stick with you till level 25ish. You can even buy it on the MB.
yesterday I had an arcanist who refused to stop using topaz carbuncle even when asked nicely to switch to emerald. Then in a Library had a bard who only used venomous bite, straight shot, heavy shot. Level 59. Every time I fool myself into thinking "people aren't that bad at the game, everyone needs to quit bitching" I have one of those days that reminds me how retarded people are.

I'm being so fucking triggered fuck off fuck you.

The lack of XIV art in general is just disappointing.
Which is why we must take things into our own hands.

I'm feeling the MMO itch. I quit WoW because it's been on the decline for a while now, but I just feel indifferent to most MMOs on the market right now. FFXIV seems fun and popular. Can someone sell me on the game?
