Final Fantasy XIV:

Big upcoming update.
All the Ewoks will look up and shout, "Save us from the Klingons!" And I'll whisper, "Why so serious?"

I've heard that this update will add a "sort" option for your bags? Because that would be awesome.

Bought this game during the Black Friday sale. It's surprisingly good. I play a lot of eventually-F2P MM Os like Rift and Tera, mostly because I have a fetish for leveling up, and this one seems different. Probably the art design. The world seems pretty cool despite the fact that I'm just running back and forth through the same 5-6 zones over and over again.

Currently a level 39 Black Mage, and I really look forward to level 40 so I can blow stuff up with Astral Fire III. While wearing my shiny high quality jewelry and staff from Goldsmithing. I like the fact that you can level up your non-combat classes entirely separately from your combat classes. For quite a while I was better at goldsmithing than thaumaturgy.

My free company has mostly been drooling over the housing. Last word was between all of us who have said we plan to contribute, we're probably sitting on nearly 5 million gil for that and those of us invested in crafting are trying to max out at least a class or two by the time the patch hits to make furnishings and such.

Post-patch also looking like a good time to be hitting endgame-territory for my Bard (hit 45 last night).

I'm playing it. Currently getting my character to Arcanist level 15 so I can get the White Mage job. The conjuror makes dungeon runs a little boring because all I do is heal and cast protect and Esuna occasionally, but everyone needs a healer so I usually wait for maybe 30 seconds for a party. I have noticed though, when the tank isn't doing their job, that all the enemies who aren't actively being attacked focus on me. It's kind of hard to heal during a boss fight when eight skeletons are chasing you.

The last dungeon I went through was like that. I was struggling to keep myself, the thaumaturge and the archer alive because the tank was failing to draw any of the enemies. Apparently he didn't like the abilities that did that because they didn't do much damage.

Everyone is a little bit insane. It makes the world so much more interesting!

I am also playing it again after a Dark Souls II break, and after upgrading to the Playstation 4 version. I have three characters on the Cerberus server.

I'm a Lv 50 White Mage with the Thyrus Atma at the moment. Yes, healing is boring, but if you're confident with your abilities, you can do some nice damage when you turn Cleric's Stance on. Swiftcast + Holy on large pulls can help tanks greatly.

Tanks have to maintain aggro, but if a DPS is doing damage faster/higher than the tank or if the healer is healing the aggro'd person too fast, then hate will be lost on the tank so sometimes you and the DPS have to slow down.

As a main tank, I find I only get challenged to keep threat against bards and BLM. If you pay half a shred of attention and occasionally cycle between targets you can see when something is getting to angry at the rest of your party so just smack it a couple times to get its attention back.

And I consider myself a bad tank.
Well, that went about as well as I expected...

So we're getting a new DPS class, Rogue, as well as the Ninja job upgrade for it.

In other news, ingame marriage is to be unrestricted by race or gender. It's also possible to make it a celebration of eternal friendship rather than love.

Okay here are my current goals in FFXIV:

  • Level up Thaumaturge to 30, then Archer to 15 (To get Black Mage)
  • Level up Gladiator to 30 then get Conjurer to 30 (for Paladin, as well as the shield spells for my Mage)
  • Level up Arcanist to 15 (To get White mage)

Thalmaturge is at 25 an the other relevant classes are 7-8. How long do you think it would take for me to complete thee goals?

Just so you know, once you switch to Black Mage, you'll only be able to use skills from Archer and Arcanist. Jobs are meant to be more specialized than classes, so they only allow 2 classes to cross skills from. White Mage allows Arcanist and Thaumaturge, Summoner allows Thaumaturge and Archer, and Scholar allows Conjurer and Thaumaturge.

I'm aiming for Archmage title as well. I main Lv.50 WHM (at i91), I've recently hit 50 in ACN with i80-ish in SCH and i70-ish in SMN, and I'm at Lv.34 at BLM. I've also got some levels in Archer and Gladiator, as well as Weaver, Carpenter, Botanist and Miner.

Just out of curiosity, what servers are you lot on? I'm on Moogle.

Cards to trade, Judges to Dodge
Thief/Ninja class/job combo revealed. Apparently, they are DEX based, take less fall damage, and have high speed attacks.

Edit: Should have looked one post higher. Ah well, info is info.

I'm briefly considering remaking my RO assassin as a ninja, otherwise not very interested. I would only take NIN to 50 on an alt literally so his retainer could be one.....

And then I remembered that retainers can't be jobs, only classes. ;/
Well, that went about as well as I expected...
