female au ra house the most toxic part of the playerbase and unlike lalafell, they can't actually play the game. any static you see one in I can bet my bottom dollar that they will be the weakest link in said static.
I played this for like 2 weeks on release but got fed up with the server problems, im looking to sink my teeth into an MMO and was wondering if this is still worth getting into?
I dont want to jump into an MMO and find out 90% of the servers are dead and everyone stops doing any real content 6 months down the road.
ferffuckssake i'm playing babysitter for a couple of teenage girls when does this story get less FUCKING WHINY
my au ra is flat and min height n she doesnt look THAT young
it's probably one of the best out there honestly, and gets progressively better and more active the higher you get in terms of level
just find the right server and people will be doing stuff, and with the addition of cross-server parties there is now more access to parties actually doing stuff
so yeah, go for it
Yes its worth. Its easier than ever to get into, now. Right now some servers are preferred and give you double exp for any job up to level 60 (70 is the cap), and 15 days free sub time.
A dead server means nothing because open world content is only used for leveling. Everything with any worth in this game is instanced, and all instanced content pulls from your ENTIRE data centre, not just your server. Server only matters for what Free Company (guild) you can join and who you can chat with. (Which wont matter soon either, next patch is bringing cross-world tells and cross-world chat soon after).
They're super cool protectors.
Can't wait to blow my head off reading them Patchnotes in October
Alright sounds good to me, hopefully Red Mages are decent and they dont have a bad community or something. I always thought XIV was lacking a Battlemage class, just wish it wasnt the newest to be added.
If you mean hotbar instead of toolbar, whatevers comfortable
Monk at 70 is really just keeping up your timers (Demolish, Dragon Kick, Twin Snakes) while using your damaging moves (Bootshine, True Strike, Snap Punch) if you dont need to apply them. It works out to being Dragon/Twin every other combo, Demolish every 3rd combo. Weave in oGCDs on cooldown since monk CDs all line up.
Opener is Form Shift x3 prepull, Demolish + Perfect Balance > Snap Punch > Snap Punch > Dragon Kick > Twin Snakes > True Strike (PB Falls off here) Bootshine > True Strike > Snap Punch > etc etc etc
They don't have a bad community.
At the moment RDM is one of the easiest jobs and at the same time offers some extremely high dps capabilities.
You will need to level a DIFFERENT job to 50 first, if you start from scratch. Or you can pay money to jump potion your main scenario progress and jump potion a job to 60.
If you start from scratch, expect between 1-2 weeks to reach red mage. But as soon as you hit 50 you can unlock it, very easy to do. And they give you free gear.
Why do French players keep asking me if I'm French? My name isn't French and I only have English selected on my languages.
Those eyes make my dick hard
god bless you my brothers and sisters in arms
One ilm isnt really important, make liberal use of ctrl, alt and shift if you havent. Dunno what else really, you use most everything on monk pretty frequently outside of one ilm and meditiation.
yeah cause all my friends left me when i went potate
pls no use my midlander without permission thx xoxo
what are your opinions on red skinned xaela?
what hair color goes best with red skin?
Unfortunately Raen get the better shade of red
>cross-server tells will be added in 4.1
>all the comfy maeteus people will never talk to me agains because they'll all be sending tells back and forth with the balmung friends
What the fug anon, you shouldn't sexualize my eyes
Either neutral colors like brown that are darker than your skin (seems hard considering you're basically brown instead of red)
or some color theory shit like complimentary or double complimentary colors.
Try a redder skin and some gross fucking cyan or blue with yellow highlights. Trust me, it... MIGHT be cool.
>Right now some servers are preferred and give you double exp for any job up to level 60 (70 is the cap), and 15 days free sub time.
Is it free to transfer from a regular world (Exodus) to a preferred world? (Midgardsormr, Adamantoise, Siren). I was worried about going to a "dead" world because I play on PS4 and having to wait eternity for dungeons.
you wish that was your midlander
>different brown hair color
>different eye color
Not sure if your eye color is different. Also, what face are you using?
Also, you have no scars
can't stop won't stop
hi, someone do expert roulette with me pls
What about blue skin?
Sorry anon, that's imposible unless we have been EB'd for at least 2 months
wtf anon, that would be raep
>85% of the people on this game only want to play with you, talk to you, and hang out with you if you play a cute girl character
>99% in this thread
lol you dont need to prove anything to me bro. i retired him back in heavensward
>wtf anon, that would be raep
There's less than 90 people who post here on a regular basis if we're going by IPs alone, and we'll subtract 10 or so for phoneposters and ban evaders who reset their IPs. Reevaluate your social circles and decide whether or not you want to spend time and energy on those kinds of people.
what about ugly female midlanders?
I can't wait for 4.1 where I can sit around people I know playing Answer off key and getting paid to stop.
lol, but you look gayer.
>bad colored eyes
>only one scar
>prolly mouth 4
Shit, you could have made your character look good, but instead it should have been aborted at birth. No wonder you "retired" him.
?? whos lil boy is this
sum1 come collect him lol
Now no one will know I'm a nipple-less freak.
what did u just fucking say to me
no one's gonna gettin my booty, yer stuck here with me ya lizard
this post was v clearly made by an autist rper
the catgirl in the black /thumbsup-ped me every time i backflipped u loser
do i smell a weasel... or maybe sum1 who has a pet weasel.... interesting......
no he's not
i don't think so
that's my boy though don't talk shit
No reason to get excited, it's just me.
>no he's not
stop kidding yourself
Bit defensive. It's not really necessary to speak to people to find out what they want from a game, people tend to make their voices heard.
Generally though, they vocalise their desire in a way that would be heard in order to make the devs notice. Given that in the past 3 years I hadn't heard anything like that, I was confused at the sudden announcement.
I like the idea of it but I doubt it will last. Though that depends on how exactly it will work
hell yeah dude
he wildin out
calling blue haired lizard
Giraffe, [email protected], lizard, or potato?
I want to design the ultimate waifu piece of shit, and I need your help.
playing as an au ra in sb really does have a cool feel to it, doesn't it
can't wait for steppes.
yes he is
lizards are pretty good
Steppes was nice and I can see how the experiences might be better as an Au Ra, but the story got significantly better in Yanxia after
Yugiri came back and I didn't have to deal with Lyse's bullshit.
I didn't mean it to come across like that. You're right though, I don't know what everyone wants from the game. From my perspective, the announcement just came out of nowhere. It's like if they announced a new crafter job 'bartender'. Sure, why not. But also, why/who asked for that?
Are there any good resources outside of Momo's stuff that might have something useful in them for a DRG player?
Man, just imagine what's going to happen once the Balmung lockout gets lifted. Relaxteus will be a ghost town again, all those stranded (karma is great) ebins like mechanical homosexual, neko, bun, meria are going to flock to Balmung again.
You goddamn dorks.
Help me out, /xivg/. I need a race to fanta into
Best waifu? Probably cat because that's what most people like.
Best waifu that also looks good as a WAR? Of the options you have, Elezen will look the best as a WAR.
>be tanking expert roulette
>healer seems to be off in another world, half afk, not dpsign at all
>died on the first pull, not even an apology from them
>proceed to deal with their lack of healing the best i can via self healing, i die, the mch dies and eventually the healer lets themselves die
>ask them nicely to start paying attention
(Jasmine Fosterv) Do you mind chilling the ???? down
>try to kick them after this, get denied by its beta orbiters
>wipe the raid and leave
i expect this kind of shittiness out of exodus players and not ultros
I just wish I picked a better server. I wanted to join Gilgamesh, but I didn't know shit was going to be locked out when I came back. Not knowing what to pick, I picked Cactuar.
It's an odd feature yeah. But it's neat. I'm sure most RP'ers will get a use out of it, and there will - in time be really cool renditions of popular songs done with the feature and uploaded to Youtube.
Maybe that isn't for you which is fine but, know that some people will get a use out of it. And that also, 4.1 provides way more to the players than just that. It's a patch that has something for everyone really.
Stormblood is what destroyed the bench. Logically so as most bench-shitters went off to play the new content, however after already exploring the new zones they would return to the bench.
But SE was't having this, oh no. Too much congestion, no more idling. 30 minute kick timer.
This killed Ul'dah entirely for a while, for weeks you could go to the quicksand in the evening and it would look like a current screenshot of Mateus.
Between 3k+ entrance queues, server moves fucking over eurofags, and kick timers, many bench-shitters transferred to varying places to try and escape, bringing some of their friends with them. It was too late to realize there's even less to do on dead-ass backwater servers, and now they're fucked out of Balmung. Hence the new push for Mateus and Odin, so they can have friends again.
Also Kugane is pretty comfy and a lot of ebins idle there now around the marketboard.
That's a serious implication you have there friend.
I'm excited to see what people do with it for that reason alone. If nothing else, it will be nice entertainment hearing bards in kugane play silly shit instead of hearing the sound of crafting and the crowd sound on loop. Kinda makes me want to level my BRD just thinking about it
Look upon my cat, and despair
Misinfo, i do that and barely thalk there
Maybe they forgot Male Ra, look perfectly fine as WAR I think.
my thoughts exactly
it is the body+head armor piece aka Heavy Iron Armor
*gasp* c-could that be a Cat-MAN?!?!?!
Bokairo and Bokaisen are alone time RP territory.
Rakusui gardens are also RPer territory, with no nearby idling spots for OOC, and minimal seating area.
Both bridges are mostly featureless, though many idle there still.
Sekiseigumi are too far from the action despite being quite beautiful.
The rest are too far from nearby aetherytes to be a good spot, and even further from the action.
Shiokaze Hostelry is basically the quicksand now, and there are multitudes of benches just outside, but few people sit there and most prefer the markets for some reason.
Maybe if more people sat there, more would come, meaning more would sit there? Try it out I guess, try to get groups to idle there.
I want to fanta away from my cat and give Elezen a try. I was originally going to go moonie, but it just seems... off when I try. The left's eye makeup is a bit heavy, but other than that, I don't know which one is better.
Raiding is the least fun piece of content in this game. Savage raiding. It's banging your head against a wall, then you down it, get a 10 seconds long endorphins/adrenaline rush as you feel satsifcation, then it's doing the same shit every week for more savage gear you don't even need, because you already downed it with what you had, and there's nothing else.
If anything, this MMO should embrace what it is, a casual/social game, and shit out more content like chocobo racing, potd, or now the music thing. It caters to more people and keeps the game alive.
I am sorry, savage raiders don't keep this game alive. Casuals do.
I love how comfy gridania and its night time is
I'm not on an RP server, so it won't do much. It's interesting how that status produces different usage patterns. In a way it might be nice to have characters scattered around town in a more organic way than everyone congregating at the MB and leve NPC.
I'm just always looking for the little things to do to add to my dps. I'm still pretty new. Only just now started to try to Elusive Dive back to the boss after stuff like Mindjack for more uptime. Little things like that.
>get a few close friends into the game
>start playing with them a lot
>help them when they are new, teach them things to help them git gud
>they get really into the game
>get to end game, start really gitting gud and caring about dps and parses
>be months later
>they have gone from being new players that just want to have fun into what they are now
>elitists that kick leafs in parties for not doing end game shit in sub 50 leveling roulettes
>call people out for mistakes they made only weeks prior and bully them
wat even do? I was having fun with them but now I honestly just feel bad for the people in their groups and I feel in a shitty spot where I don't even want to do content with them because they will just start shit with some poor pub that doesn't know something or does something inoptimally
I've created these monsters, how do I put them down?
How could they have possibly made SMN fun/exciting to play?
Oh yeah if you're on a normie server you'll just have people at the markets and probably Bokairo. Maybe the odd faggot AFK at the gardens because its quiet there.
That's what I love about RP servers though, people are everywhere for the sake of scenery, and not just for efficiency. Nothing cooler than cruising through thanalan for a mining node and there's like 7 strangers all standing around chatting.
I think so too. The eyes are much clearer, are more proportionally correct, and she has more personality by the look of it. Think I might go with darker skin still since my cat is pale.
I disagree. While those two may look the best the lizard guys look alright, and the midlanders look great as well. That is the best part about midlanders. They may not look the best, but they look just fine as ALL of the classes. If you wanted to actually play every job on one character, midlander is the best for that. They are the jack of all trades.
Cat-MEN are fine. It is the catboi's I hate. Catbois are gay. The question is, under that helm, will I see the face of a man, or the face of a pincushion?
They're fun to mess around with and can pull off a lot of glamours that other races can't. The worst things that will happen to you is having to put up with weirdo beardo MUH ELEZEN WAIFU comments in the thread that are annoying but there's not much that can be done about hardcore elf fetishists with no self-awareness. In-game I've only had two or three people park their characters under my skirts or the occasional "futa?" whisper which is irritating, but it's easy to put people on ignore if they keep pestering you.
What armor set or combination will make me look like a proper (non-JRPG) knight as a PLD?
Force them to help sprouts until they find fun in making randoms better. Your friends are suffering from in group/out group bias, and making shitters better a fun thing instead of a chore will help ease their faggotry.
Try mythril, pictured here.
high mythrite chest arms and feet
griffin leather skirt
any armor helmet of your choice
or just the adamantite set
I like [email protected] WAR, however, all races, minus potato, cause a ding in my armor.
You have to figure that stuff out yourself per fight.
Elusive jump usage is a good start. Take note on where would be best to use it and how; to squeeze out DPS before eating a point blank aoe, for positioning, or gap closer. Don't forget about your sprint. If you know a knockback mechanic is coming up like in O1S, preposition by facing away from the boss the second the spell goes off. If you time things right, you can stay on top of the boss with EJ.
Players like momo are great because they are identifying these opportunities, experimenting, and using what they learn to optimise. Just keep in mind how often you're on the boss and be on the lookout for creative ways you can stay hitting it
I enjoy the look of the High Allagan Fending dyed in
why is this guy so cute and when is whatever race he is being added to the game
I think Templar set is best.
spotted the retarded catshitter that only plays the game to erp
this is the best man face for cats >>188093090 but you don't have to actually have that face to be a cat-MAN. It all depends on dress, hair and hair color, the mouth/nose/brow/etc.
This is a pretty gay looking cat >>188092742
he's a padjal (like kan-e-senna, raya-o-senna, etc) and it's incredibly likely he'll never be added to the game because padjal are just very special hyur who've been selected to be the voice of the elementals
>Attempt a fate as SMN
>Pull out both Titan and Chocobo set to healer stance
>Titan still gets shitwrecked and dies despite constant healspam on him
>I get the shit kicked out of me in a heartbeat and barely survive running from the fate
Physick is worthless.Titan is made of wet paper. How do they expect you do anything as SMN?
WHM story in ARR was lackluster enough that I shelved it forever. It was that fucking bad. If it's good enough to redeem itself and dealing with some not-dead-but-sort-of-yes kid's ghost telling you to fix a tree's hurt feefees, I might give it a go.
SB story is you hanging out with a cute Padjal and her mother, also Sylphie after she learned to grow up and DPS as a healer. Then voidsents happen and voidsents keep happening until the happening stops at the end. Also Sylphie grows up even more. Truly she is a good girl
>finally honored with ixal
i just want my gat dang wolf
It will - perhaps - forever be a mystery.
>240 minutes in queue for fist of the son
>spent another 120 minuets in queue earlier but tried party finder but nobody joined
>queuing for long dead content with no incentive for players to go back to it
>surprised it never pops
anon, do you have brain problems
>be levelling RDM
>get to first Vault run with the job, level 57 and with kind of crap gear
>other DPS is RDM too, level sync'd down
>think cool, maybe I'll see some useful stuff for playing the job
>we get started, tank and healer are clearly acquainted and work well together, things go by pretty fast
>other RDM comments that things are going way faster than he's used to
>parse log after the fact
>in every single fight
>Every. Single. Fight.
>I'm doing 2-300 DPS more than the other RDM
>on Charibert he barely went over 100 DPS
How. He seemed to be casting just as much as I was. I wasn't watching him constantly, but every time I glanced over he was casting or meleeing.
Maybe some things are better left unknown...
I HAVE AUTISM AND NEED TO COMPLETE EVERY QUEST
Is it possible to recreate this in FFXIV?
I logged into the game on a new character to look at the animations and immediately deleted her when I saw the running animation. On top of eing super lanky, the run just killed it for me. I've tried one of every female race (except Lala) now and there's always a major flaw that kills it. I keep gravitating back to cat.
>every result is Dark Souls game talk
>no idea how to search in game aside from going piece by piece
Go to the market board and check for armor pieces. There's also the item database if you're autistic enough to go through every armor piece meant for tanks.
>Oh they added Edda's stuff, finally
>obviously it's going to be new boss loot from her and not even more shameless exclusive additions to the cash shop-
no now give me it or i'll poke you
There is a severe lack of good RDM weapons imo.
Maybe im picky but i dont like most of them.
>no edda ninja weapon
guess I'll die then
Holy shit, Yoshida why the fuck did you cut this.
I can fix that look
ur hollow stick doesn't scare me
nice femoral arteries you've got there, would be a shame if something happened to them
I don't know. I wish I had tail armor.
>play au ra female
>cant have scars
>cant have abs
>cant have fangs
>all horns look like some sort of retarded billygoat
>not claws instead of nails by default
>tail clips with everything
>all animations look like they are some dainty honoraburu woman instead of the fierce warriors they are supposed to be in the lore
Why did i pick this race again?
THIS is what au ra females are supposed to be.
I want to make a suncat but I just can't seem to make one I like, something about the shape of their faces just seems weird. Like their jaws are too pointed and their lips are too puffy or something. I'll give one a shot after this.
Thanks but that was my first try, I seriously doubt my first try would be the winner
I hate the QS, I can't read anything in there. Text moves too fast.
Thanks, here's it revised, focusing on making a good face before choosing a hair, I kind of like the wider mouth
Is dark blonde really that popular?
I didn't even think of that when I made it. You're kinda right. NEAT. Zinogre stuff was always my favorite armor set
>tfw au ra could have been another race with actual distinguishing features between clans
>petite raen and larger succlizard xaela
>those fuckin horns on the bottom pictures
the female au ra we got are such a disappointment
Oh yes do tell me how something that has the stats of a highlander you know those people that are 6ft tall lift lions and shit are on the same level as a 4ft tall 90lb midget. That shit is straight up lore breaking. And why we are on that subject pay attention to a females xaelas scales and horns, notice they are an off blue now look at their racial hairstyles notice how the horns on them are black. This subrace was literally stripped down to pander to miqo'te players
Deep Sea Anglerfish.
I would have liked a bestial race just as much as the next guy, but this is what we were given, getting upset isn't going to change anything.
It doesn't matter what kind of cat you make there's going to be a dozen just like it around every corner, they're the most played race in the game. As I said previously, just make something you like and roll with it. You always have the option to change it at a later date with your free fantasia, or one you purchase.
its just that they showed so much promise and then when they were finally implemented we got, dainty lady women. I mean look at the azim steppes questline, they are all fierece warriors yet their animations and looks make them look like some sort of dignified noble japanese lady.
Your gonna make me blush
Yeah, but not for a long time, too much real life stress
I already purchased one, I'm changing back to a cat because I'm coming back to the game and want a fresh look
Here's the suncat version, something just seems off about it. I think its the mouth.
A complete monster cannot be the wol
>when se gives you reasonably cute girls with scales instead of weird monster girls fetish
Ah yes all the trauma coming right back to me.
>wahhh you are dumb this is you in this greentext you are a baby wahhh I'm one of those enormous retards who can't actually enter a discussion intelligently so I just make a big baby strawman wahhh don't forget wahhhh is the baby noise you are making not me waahhhhh
Why can't we have both though? i like my au ra but i understand why other people would like the original thing more...
Holy fug i'll finally be able to get my flying sperm
The rest of the set looks really cool too. I really like DRG stuff
Oh fuck no..
>love long hair
>it clips into my armor when i move
>first they update feet models for feet weirdos
>then they add potions to make you giant for giantess weirdos
>then they change au ra to be monster girls for monster girl weirdos
Next thing you know they're adding fucking diapers for Lalafells. Yeah, no everything is good right now.
Well tonight ended up being pretty interesting. Was just running Alexander raids for the first time, and ended up chatting with someone while waiting in a queue. Ends up with me going to a brothel that was holding a burlesque dance event, the place was packed.
Now I think I'm an RPer?
Yeah, ok, but how many cats did you tag team?
I'm much too frightened to meet and play with avatars
You're thinking of the Pro Wrestling Brothel down the street.
