You believe in old men in the clouds and jewish zombies that turn water into wine? That's cute, Myself, I am a realist.
How many of you actually spent money on your Ceremony?
Or did you love your other so little that you wouldn't even spend a shekel on them?
Dare you to drink the gold water.
>men actually spent real life money to get married to other men in a game
>tfw mine was with an actual girl
>knew her for months before it happened
>after about a month and a half after the eb, she becomes a cunt
This mystery is getting out of hand.
I just wanna know who's behind it all. Or do I?
I would never do so without permission first.
While cute please do not rope Spider into the degeneracy.
>spent 40 dollars on an EB for my friend and I because he was out of work
>he unsubbed before the cerimony
>EBed someone else but he was out of work too and I sure as shit wasn't spending 40 dollars on an EB again
>tfw he has the platinum stuff already anyway
and i dont
To darling boys waiting for their mommy elezen. The name is
Mother Jeanneand she will be made on Siren tomorrow. I can't wait to hold you and let you suckle from my heavy milk filled breasts.
Is this where the gear grind begins?

Felt pretty good, most groups i've seen try it get wiped, got a cute pet too!
>get into a group that seems halfway competent at doing the Odin trial
>manage to clear the first set of Spears before wiping
>suddenly the healers aren't pulling their weight on the second attempt and nearly the entire group immediately wipes after Odin casts Einherjar
>"guess the healers are tired lol"
>"lol yeah I'm tired gonna do this tomorrow"
>everyone is fine with it and they abandon the duty
I don't even have the words to describe this feeling.
my party yelled at me, whoops
It was really great though, seeing everyone so happy about the kill. Was shitting bricks trying to keep Greased Lightning going with no TP and dodging Gorgemias's(?) attacks and killing adds.
Look at him he's so fucking mad I love it!
Not the anon you're replying to but just go with what you like.
Face 4 does suck though.
Very few people actively queue for the CT raids, especially very early morning on a Monday like this.
Your best bet would be to try on Tuesdays, or on the weekend, during the day.
> not nonstop erping during those 3 hour queues
a fool in my eyes
All the other faces are too weeby for me.
What's even more funny is that even if I did have time, we're probably on different servers!
DUDE WEED LMAO
Their Miqo'te may be one of my favorites but they're a cool person and don't deserve to be dragged into stupid stuff.
No matter where you go
Harpuia will be there
I'm not a fan of Face 4's horn choice (would rather have Face 1's horns if there was a separate horn choice), but I like the eyes more than anything. The other faces just really put off this demure asian girl look that I don't find that appealing. The other races really don't have this problem.
I don't think I'd ever use Face 2 or 3 based on horn aesthetics alone, but coupled with the face it's really not my thing. Some people here have made it work and I don't know if that's just a product of lighting outside of chargen, but it doesn't suit my tastes.
>lighting outside of chargen
That's gonna kill me. I'm blowing my fanta soon and nailing down the perfect skintone is torture since I can't really tell what it will actually look like. It'll end up being too light or too dark somehow.
Make alts on other realms. It's easier now that you can skip the main cutscene.
You can also use Retainer Fantasias, which is helpful for seeing your character in some high level gear !
I was wondering what that was. I'm just leveling.
>There are people who actually miss 1.0
>tfw someone uses the pic I made
I've never played 1.0 and I still miss it.
>purchase discounted 10pack of metallic red
>looks like dulled pink shit
I don't know if applying metallic dye to metal armor is fucking it up, but slapping Dalamud Red on it looks more metallic red than the $5 I just wasted.
Does this shit look metallic and red on cloth/leather?
That's not true.
There's only one fight where a MCH out-DPS'd a BRD, and that was on the dummy fight gatekeeper.
Come make an alt on Cactuar then, i'll level with you.
I'm very tired though from fate grinding, so maybe another time. Goodnight!
I feel the same way, but in a sense that I feel like I reached level 50 wayy too fast and didn't get time to appreciate other aspects of the game like gathering. It's why i'm leveling up MIN and maybe a crafting class, haven't decided yet.
Yep, from around the time HW benchmark came out and everyone was seeing what they could make.
It's a great image. I'm a sucker for image macros like that.
I'm gonna feed you a knuckle sandwich at this rate.
>alt+tab back into game
>apparently misclick on someone who was right next to the person i'm ERPing with
>send the complete stranger a raunchy tell instead
O'course. We've been friends outside of the game since before XIV. Myself and my other friends just haven't been playing XIV as frequently lately.
It's alright, been there before myself. I think I still have some screencaps saved from FFXI of a few occasions of people MT'ing in Jeuno.
Ok I am retiring to bed now
no more of this after tonight
Don't you guys get tired of this
That's one thick tail.
I wonder if it breaks off like a geckos, and I wonder how much nutritional value it has.
If you were in a survival situation and were going to starve, can you just break it off and eat it to sustain yourself?
If you can chain first time bonuses for things like Coil/primals, that is the most efficient.
I've found that just Alexander floors on a fast queue job (tank/healer) can net you 10+ tomes/minute. A4N is 20 Law + a precision part (worth 68 tomes) and is over in like 5 minutes. Add on a queue time of ~5m and that's 88 tomes/7~12m = 12~7t/m.
Roulettes give a bit less at 6~8t/m, despite how high the bonuses are. Better to preform them and spam high tome yields.
If you're a DPS, also do dailies I guess. They have garbage yield but it's something to work towards..
oh jeez what the heck is going on here
We both uninstalled the free mod shortly after this, not being able to see anyone with an i210 relic really sucks
Hope the 3.2 one gets leaked or something
You could do worse than that, show screens and we can judge
Alright, this is what I'm working with atm.
Still trying to tweak it.
There's nothing like joining a leveling dungeon to two male cats wearing almost the same gear who neither speak, nor play well and then, at the final boss, never limit break, despite being the only dps.
Holy shit, what kind of fucking world do I live in where I get two chinese botters who constantly pull for the tank, die, and then leave their bodies before I can res them?
That or maybe Minfilia's if I pay for it.
The tan I'm trying to work out still, I can't really tell what it translates into in game, but I don't want it to be too dark or too light and I still want it to be a bit rosy at the same time.
Yda was a big inspiration for the hair and eye color. Skin tones mostly inspired by pic related I want the tone like that but just a bit rosier. Gotta figure out which check box that will be.
>10 attempts in a row on Odin and my DF group still couldn't beat him
I have been trying for three days to beat Odin. And every time I attempt his trial I end up with people who just cannot grasp relatively simple mechanics. How can people be this fucking terrible? How do people not notice the aoes? Why do people not focus on one spear at a time? This game isn't even that fucking hard.
Yeah that's the thing, with that kind of tone it just kinda feels mandatory, but I really love the blue eyes blonde hair combination, and I'm not sure it can work with that kind of tone.
Person in that pic doesn't have Blue eyes though, which isn't something I'm willing to give up. I mean it still looks pretty good in the job gear?
i mean youre blinking so hard to specifically say, but it could work, the blonde does work with that tone if thats what youre asking.
i think the brown does worh regardless of eye colour
BnS for the Combat sort of
FF14 for everything else
Yeah I didn't notice the screencap happened right when she was blinking.
What the flying fuck is up with scrips? Why do you need to gather scrips only to trade then to another currency to then trade that currency for gear? Why is this shit so convoluted and awful?
>am able to play videos in the background of FFXIV
>suddenly Display drivers start crashing
>game crashes with them
? ?? ?? ?
I only found one but it's like 80% alts
She's the epitome of normie. She only bought the game because she used to play my old games growing up. She plays with her normie friend and they haven't even cleared msq after months. Don't waste your time.
Windows 10. AMD Radeon R9 200. Firefox, If that answers it. I'm semi-computer retarded. And yes, everything was working fine with Windows 10 up until this point. Maybe a new update fucked some shit.
Alright, I've narrowed it down to being an issue with Windows 10,firefox might be the issue as well, but I'm sure you're not running nightly like I am. I'm also using Nvidia drivers, so there can't be an issue there. I'm going to assume windows 10 starts choking when having to deal with the gpu having to take care of two heavy tasks like the game and rendering a video.
Can you at least do this?
Then I could pinpoint which type of r 200 series you've got.
I'm not the same person you fucking idiot, learn to read. I have a gtx 770
My Temps are fine from what I can see, but each time my drivers crash, instead of recovering they just leave a solid colored screen with the audio still working, along with the fans whirring at full speed.
So it's the second time now I've seen some nigga playing five characters at once and teleporting all over the place from NPC to NPC. I assume this isn't intended behavior?
Should I report that shit? Do they give a fuck?
There have been known issues with Nvidia cards/drivers for a while now, always that same 'display driver has stopped responding' shit. There's dozens of fixes if you Google around but nobody can seem to find a consistent fix for every card. I've seen anything from the card simply overeating, bad driver version, power usage setting, changing the voltage of the card, registry edit that changes the timeout duration and the card being broken in some way.
Personally, I've tried everything except replacing my card which I don't really have the money to do so. I have a 770 too and I've been using it since August 2013, had problems the whole time, they weren't that bad to begin with but around a year later it become incredibly common and nothing I tried seemed to help. Sometimes the crashes happen multiple times a day, sometimes I don't see them for a week or more. They don't even happen in every game I play. Never had an issue with Dota 2 or Diablo 3, but FFXIV and WoW cause issues a lot.
Just Google 'display driver has stopped responding' and try out some of the fixes.
What brand is your 770 by the way?
Msi lighting, it doesn't help that the card was discontinued after the very first batch due to the cost of its creation and the power it had. I'm probably going to buy myself a 980 or one of the upcoming cards soon.
It's worrisome because I swore off amd products after even worse issues with just having games not optimized for the cards. I'll probably just go ahead and buy myself a 980, get watercooling for my cpu and an ssd to make sure there's no chance of overheating.
Could you guys post tank glamours? I need something new that says, "That's a tank."
>someone wants to erp, but i'm busy
>no longer busy, but now they're busy, so i ask them to contact me when they're free
>they go offline without contacting me
thanks for reading my blog
That's some good ass tank glamour you got there
>Got Arcanist to 30
>Got CNJ to 15
>Still no SCH unlocked at the guild
I see the SMN quest, but what else do I have to do to get the SCH class to show up. Am I missing something?
get a master crafter sugar daddy. master crafters are super lonely and generous oh and loyal too. mine doesn't even let me erp with him after he makes me stuff because he feels guilty. he's the best.
What class would fit my character? Kinda thinking MNK, but leveling a DD takes ages.
I got away from one but the other found me hiding in the trees
So I've got PLD and WAR unlocked now and I just want to know if I'm a full fucking retard if it comes to tanking or not.
Is there a particular reason for DPS to split up between targets? Meaning one DPS attacks target A, while the other one attacks B. It's shitty to tank but I seem to manage it by alternating enmity combos and going with Overpower/Flash inbetween. It only gets shitty if something suddenly adds but that doesn't happen too often so I don't really mind. It seems that people tend to AoE/focus targets in about 60% of the cases though so it's not a problem unless they decide to split anyway.
Also, am I a retard for running off to the next group whenever the last mob of a group is at like 10-20% HP? I just assume that the one non-caster DPS who's usually in the party can finish that one off while getting to the next group. Or do you automatically lose aggro if you're too far away from a mob?
Also, while playing GLD, I've noticed that I kept dying more often than with my MRD. With MRD, I don't think I've even died once. Using the same gear, it happened much more often with my GLD. I do alternate my cooldowns for trash too - I just use one, wait until it's ran out and use the other one as long as I have one ready. Am I doing something wrong there? I don't fucking know anymore. I mean the only other thing I may have noticed in regard to that is that whenever I kept dying I had an Astrologist as a healer, but I have no idea how good or bad they are.
WHAT IF, LIKE

>Is there a particular reason for DPS to split up between targets?
DPS should be focusing down the primary target you hit with Shield Lob/Tomahawk. They should also be managing their own enmity however they can, unless there's a vast iLv difference. By the time it's dead there will be enough incidental AOE from you to hold the rest until they're dead.
In encounters with more than three enemies, AOE is the focus and you let the retard single-targeting handle his own threat.
>Also, am I a retard for running off to the next group whenever the last mob of a group is at like 10-20% HP?
It maintains group momentum if they have to chase a mob. You're also saving time.
>I die more on GLA. Am I doing something wrong there?
Paladin doesn't get its defensive stance until 40. Warrior/dark knight get theirs at 30.
i use it
it was a gift
don't you have friends that buy you things?
I bought the red one so I could be like my hero Char "Quattro" "I'm a big dumb idiot" "Vagina" Aznable.
how much do they cost...
So I was reading through the upcoming changes and I'm not sure understand all the implications of the Vit/Str changes for tanks. Is it going to make WAR any less OP compared to the other tanks?
whatever, it's not like i'm getting a house for my fc anytime soon anyways
whats your ign?
everyone is getting an equal benefit from these changes. so all the tanks will be stronger, but still is the same position related to each other. so Warriors will still stand as they do, just everyone will have slightly higher numbers i imagine
Vit gives the same amount of Attack that Str gave before the patch + that Str still gives a small amount to attack. So it should be a bit higher dps for all Tanks after the patch
I'm the wrong person to ask, I've never been bleeding edge on raiding content. But I've never needed to stance dance to hang tough doing any of the rest of the stuff.
They never said that. All we know is that a tank in full fending will do more damage than full slaying. Whether or not this will be an increase or decrease to current DPS is unknown.
I dont plan on doing savage or anything like that with it, but I still like to play things optimally.
why is it that the majority of machinist guns look like science projects
Thanks anon. Was a bit worried because that shit looks unnecessarily difficult
>he doesn't cosplay his class while raiding
it's like you don't want to be blessed with rng
Sounds cringe worthy
>alway gon be that person who rp as something dark/deadly thus ruining any sense of fun
It's bad enough in text form, I don't think I could handle the autism of actually listening to it
But why not just buff the damage then? Since it's not exactly ever appropriate to toggle WM off I just don't get why it's even a thing. Who would choose not to use it? No one.
Still trying to get mine to be seen by the game itself, I play with a 360 controller which works well on its own. I think the steam cont isn't meant for a lot of non steam games
Although you did just remind me to try out an old game that doesn't work well with keyboards and will not see the 360 controller
Berserk, Maim, Balance, Draconian Pot of Strength, Trick Attack
Litany/IR to vie for crits
Run through Echo/outdated content if you want those screenshot crits
Because the damage buff that WM gets is greater than the auto attack dmg.
Really you /shouldnt/ be moving like an idiot as a bard but people do it. If they nerfed WM or buffed auto attacks im sure people would toggle between the two but the difference in damage is noticable as it is now. You're just forced to get used to it or switch to a melee.
i think the game is stuck in gamepad mode, instead of keyboard mode and the steam controller acts more like a keyboard mouse, will have to try changing that today and seeing the difference
No, I get that. But you missed the point or I made it poorly. If they wanted to buff BRD damage why not just buff BRD damage? Why tie it to a toggle move that isn't really a choice at all? The move itself seems redundant for its purpose.
i take that back, switching between gamepad/keyboardmouse mode did nothing, but the game sees my steamcontoller, the controls are all weird but will continue to play with it
did you update the steamcontroller through Big Picture in steam?
Oh I see what you mean now, i think it was just a dumb move by the dev team and wanting to "fix" bards movement and not make them completly op with increased dmg and no draws to strafing around.
Also it has something to do with MCHs GB since they can have a lot more proc based skills they can be a bit more mobile while they made bards the "bow mage" to not seperate the two.
Because otherwise it would have been so easy to play, 80% of the players would've picked that. So the choices were either: give BRD a self-buff on a strict timer to keep up like literally every other job, or give him cast times so that at least you have to put a (very) little effort when playing it in challenging content.
PS3 compatibility support forever.
It's actually just to activate collector's edition bonus I got at a bargain, but I like to think just registering the game will mean I'm literally destroying the game's future, as all PS3 players do.
The ol' "Wanna do my job but I only got enough of the armour to look like a tramp" blues.
I just started playing arcanist and I'm a sucker for DoT management classes. Here's a couple of questions if you guys would be so kind:
How complicated or complex does summoner become at 60? Is pet management necessary?
A bonus: I heard BRD also is very DoT and proc oriented. How does it compare to SMN?
Hope Midas has as sweet a vocal set as A3/A4.
refresh your dots when they're about to fall off
use your pet's skills when they're up
use aetherflow when it's up
use dreadwyrm trance when it's up
spam ruin 2 while doing this
congrats you are winner
>How complicated or complex does summoner become at 60?
Not really complicated, the job is easy even in endgame. You will have to manage 3 dots + a fourth ground-based one, and aetherflow skills (you will get a first taste of this at lvl 35). At some point you get ruin II which is just ruin but without a cast time, this makes things much easier (easy ogcds + movement).
It's really the easiest dps to play because while requiring you to manage a lot of skills and timers, it has plenty of room for mistakes and doesn't punish you unless you fuck up really hard
Not much. You will have to use the pet related skills of course, two buffs, a nuke and an aoe if necessary. Very few fights will require you to manage its position as well
Anyone here a sucker for tough, Irish potatoes with a strong business sense?
