FFXIV Main Cast is boring

Like, seriously, these characters should have been retired at the end of Endwalker. They don't have a story to tell with them anymore. Krile is cool and all, but she cannot carry the story by herself. Square Enix should have never brought them back and started a new story arc without them. Big fumble imo.

                Thordan wasn't evil, he got tempered by a primal. And the reason he conceived of King Thordan as a megalomaniacal psychopath is because his interpretation of the founding story of Ishgard was that King Thordan was in the wrong.
                The church itself was never in the wrong. The lie was necessary for the survival of Ishgard.

    I only really like G’raha, Krile and Alisaie. I’m ambivalent towards Alphinaud but the others are really uninteresting.
    Since they’ve all had their arcs so long ago they don’t really have real personalities anymore and just behave as the story dictates. Y’shtola is the worst offender here as the writers always write her to be exactly as knowledgeable or stupid as the plot requires which makes her feel like a boring deus ex machina. Estinien is just a big void of nothing, and the old men mainly just feel like Gimli and Legolas now.

    Them adding Estinien was their hail mary. Aside from Alphinaud and Estinien, I couldn't give two shits about any of them. Uriangier is interesting but they put him in the most boring questlines imaginable and then have Yshtola show up to throw word vomit at you. I don't mind Graha'tia, but he also gets boring questlines. Thancred just isn't what he used to be and I have no interest in him.

    They really fricked up killing off the Ascians for good. We should've gotten to at least keep ONE of them permanently in our party. The story really removed "duh bad gaiz" status from the Ascians, and one could have easily been reborn or some shit *cough elidibus or emet cough* and saw to the new world's prosperity to keep Ethyris and the split up Ascians safe.

          Unless the White Auracites were destroyed you can pull all of them back. Emet Selch showed that when he randomly came back, and then said 'don't wake up me again b***h'. You would just need to suck them out from the lifestream with insane amounts of aether manipulation.

            You're misunderstanding how white auractie works, it's just a prison used to contain their souls and to prevent them from escaping so that you can then blast them with large amounts of aether and kill them. Emet and when he came back in EW that was because of Hydaelyn's stasis magic soldifying his soul.

    there is no ddos
    the servers are just shitting themselves because more than 12 people are actually playing the game instead of idling in Limsa
    it's not a coincidence that """"ddos attacks"""" start up just BEFORE an expansion or major patch, but rarely start on the day of the release or the day the actual raid unlocks
    my personal bet is that the servers flood with bots whenever the pop declines between patches
    and then when the population starts to spike back up the servers catch on fire and Square's "fix" is to banwave the bots

        DRK, DRG, and AST are completely fine on their own. It's only when they're all mashed together in a premade that they're a problem, and even then it's mainly only because lmaosaltedearth. DRK is also the worst tank when not in a premade because randoms aren't gonna coordinate with you, and you're a tank with one (1) control ability on a 30s cooldown. The job needs a rework.

          Randoms coordinate more often than not if you spam a macro. I think at this point BH shouldn't be awarded for assists because that's the real driving force for it all. Teams can have BH4-BH5 within the first two minutes due to aoe spam. You don't even need salted earth in some cases.

            This is an incredibly bad idea, and would just serve to make kill securing jobs like DRG, NIN, MNK, and RDM SSS-tier.

              Something has to give, they can't just reduce damage for FL balance. Alternatively, reduce resistance instead on problematic jobs, like DRK and AST becoming much squishing in FL only. Then again, probably does nothing to DRK because of LD.

                You can't really balance premades, but removing Salted Earth would go a long way. Even DRG spam doesn't hold a candle to it. Also, making them more squishy wouldn't help. AST would need a rework because it's got the burstiest heals in the game despite already being made of paper, and the DRK in DRK/AST parties usually dies frequently so it's a moot point there.

    I wish we'd go back to raids having mini-bosses at the start along with a small trek through an environment, rather than two fights at the end of each tier.

      I don't mind if the savage versions will just be a normal boss arena, but they really should make the normal versions have you actually progress through the raid location. I really would've liked to see more locations around Pandaemonium for example. There's definitely some pointless floors in Coils, but even if it ended up like that it wouldn't even matter if it was just normal mode content.

                Depression is one part of it but it's more about being an outcast and being unable to relate to normalgays because you can see something wrong that they won't acknowledge. And if you try to talk about it, they don't understand. If you've ever been enraged by someone telling you to "be yourself bro" then you should get Hermes.

                I unironically felt nothing reading Hermes' reasoning
                Maybe because I also find nihilism inherently stupid

                Hermes is the opposite of a nihilist. He was enraged because nobody else thought that life has inherent value. His whole freakout was over the nonchalant way people treated suicide

                He became a nihilist when he was reborn as Amon because the memory erasure seared Meteion's message into his soul. But even as Amon he was disgusted by the way the Allagans discarded human lives for entertainment.

            That's because Endwalker is not the real end story to XIV. It's been said a lot in the threads, but endwalker is a meta-narrative end on the experiences of Covid, the community and the worth of playing/creating an MMO for a decade.

            The real ending to XIV, say if XIV was a typical 40 hour console FF JRPG, is a bittersweet ending of you doing the rejoining because the shards can't survive in that state anyway, but the past Ascians wouldn't come back either, leaving the player to reconcile with the finality of their experiences.

            But it's an MMO, so you can't do that. Hence Endwalker taking place across the literal universe instead of the shards themselves.

            Yeah but it's not done cleverly, it's done sentimentally. Hydaelyn is meant to be the personification of the mother of XIV, the world itself and the spirit of the MMO adventure.

            A harder hitting story would be that she was just as deranged as the others in holding on to the past.

                Because it's relatable. Would point does Venat have to build a new world on the back of fractured souls of the past world? What exactly is she foreseeing at the end of getting rid of Zody?
                Sure there's a narrative purpose in the game because of how 2.0 was written and intertwined, but with her actual character? Not much.

                Posters here can't break the writing down though because they're too attached to it emotionally, which is fine, Endwalker is fine in that regard.

                Think about it rationally then in terms of story, why is Hydaelyn the only one to champion that outcome and the only one to have the foresight above all her peers?
                That's what is meant by her plot being contrived to fit that Mother image. If they did her dirty in the story, it would take away from the crystal and Minfilia and the blessing and so on. They couldn't dirty those concepts in line with the meta story points in Endwalker, and so they didn't.

          It's different to call. Nitpicking 2.0 and 3.0 is fine, but the devs said they basically uprooted the main story, so it's finding its feet again.

          Even Stormblood, you can give it leeway there on the plot being spotty. You have to be harsher on Shadow and End, where they're really hitting on these larger, established ideas, and there's a good point that this post brings up, being that ALL the expansions have this same level of story issues and mid-level range pacing.

          For as good as Shadowbringers is, it has all the same problems as 2.0 and Heavensward.

            Excuses are excuses moron, you can easily say you need to be kinder on Endwalker because of other bullshit reasons like covid or the fact that XVI was developed alongside it.
            HW isn't perfect even from a content perspective, that's the point.
            People pretend HW dropped and it was a perfect 10/10 game out of the gate.

              From a content perspective Heavensward is probably the worst we've ever gotten, the only things that weren't totally scrapped and reworked at one or multiple points of its life were Mhach, later Alexander tiers, and MSQ. It is absolutely fascinating to me that Heavensward is the only expansion where not only did any of its jobs later get full reworks, but ALL of its jobs later got full reworks.

                HW was just a mess, it's a prime litmus test for who is just a nostalgiagay or is being disingenuous.
                I liked heavensward like all expansions, it was when I first started raiding seriously, but people pretending there was some astronomical drop in quality are insane.
                The QoL alone makes every expansion after it better.

                But he wasn't, he was trying to end the Dragon Brood because he knew the dragons wouldn't stop (hence Nidhogg showing up later) because of their unyielding grudge and lied to the populace to save them eventually by continuing the war.

                The reason the game frames his as wrong is that he's willing to kill ALL the dragons (of which there are cute and sexy dragons) in order to stop the unending threats like Nidhogg and whoever else.

                That's because he was tempered by the primal he summoned into his soul. The fact that the primal is a power hungry lunatic is proof that Thordan saw King Thordan the same way. He was not interested in power, he was interested in stopping the war and the Ascians tricked him into tempering himself. The priest you talk to in the epilogue questline even says he had a sudden personality shift.

                Yes, because he was tempered. The primal was summoned before you ever got to HW. The JP text explains that Nidhogg sounded his dragonsong in 2.5 and woke up Midgardsormr because Thordan had become a primal and he sensed it and shit himself.

        The funniest thing about Hermes thinking he was the only one who cared about the creatures was all the sidequests in the zone had other npcs talking how much they love the life they are taking care of and proud of it.
        Like the dude's entire crisis could have been solved by just talking to his coworkers but his crippling autism wouldn't let him.

        I don't think the writers were trying to say that people with depression are idiots and should just talk to more people but I definitely think they were saying that Hermes wasn't alone and if he had reached out to others he might not have sent his emotional support bird into space.

            I forget the name but GoTs tone was like that one movie that was meant to be a historical rendition of Arthurian legend.
            Tactics tone is totally different and is much more theatrical grandoise in its narrative and story telling.

            Honestly yeah people need to stop labeling any story where something bad and tragic happens as being influenced by GOT. That said GOT definitely has its fingerprints all over XVI but not because the characters swear.

            The Scions are butthole friends, like who thinks that's a healthy coping method for a grieving friend?

            It's a retcon it's just an especially baffling one. I think I would've been fine with them retconning Yda/Lyse's age/background (IIRC if Yda had lived she would've been closer to 40) over the Scions being psychopaths.

        Gaius isn't an imprisoned war criminal, he's free AND gets to rule new territory. Like holy frick he's done far worse than Fordola but he isn't imprisoned in any way. So where is the coherence?

            This is a reach. Gaius committed mass murder against Eorzeans in many successful wars, allowed his retinue to kill and take hostage at their leisure, even torturing Tataru, and he almost nuked everyone with Ultima. He is far worse than Fordola, whom as a child was abused and had her parents killed by Ala Mhigans.

              No he didn't. In fact he never waged war against Eorzea. He could have, but he opted not to because he believes that conquest is for the sake of the conquered and thus unnecessary bloodshed is wrong. He literally sat in Ala Mhigo for 20 years trying to subvert them instead, and then pulled out the Ultima Weapon with the intent of forcing a surrender.

                We literally fought Gaius so many times and he has killed many Eorzeans. Gaius also wasn't a Legatus his entire life. He served in the military under someone else and very much has killed many people before he was able to fight his own way.

                Gaius killed enemy combatants not civvies, Livia was out of line which is why he invited her to his quarters to yell at her, Tataru deserved it and Lahabrea tricked him with Ultima which is why he had such a major hateboner for Ascians.
                Meanwhile Fordola's goons dragged Mhiggers out into the streets and beat them to death for shits and giggles.

                Gaius and his team murdered most of the original Scions at the Waking Sands. He's also slayed several innocent beastfolk. Him turning Ala Mhigans against the king, got other Ala Mhigans killed. Fordola hasn't come anywhere near close to the atrocities he's enabled and committed.

                Gaius spent most of his career as Solus's bodyguard. His gunblade is called Heirsbane because he killed so many of his extended family who were plotting coups.

                You realize he's 56 right? This idea than a 19 year old has done worse than this man is laughable. (Yes Fordola is 19 years old)

                The Mad King was an absolute shithead who was way worse than the imperials.

                He. Enabled. It. He wasn't stopping any of his closest from murder in any way.
                >The Mad King was an absolute shithead
                Doesn't matter. Ala Mhigo didn't belong to him and he didn't help the people.

                >Fordola hasn't come anywhere near close to the atrocities he's enabled and committed.
                It's not a competition, both Gaius and Fordola deserve to be punished. The problem is that the writers' idea of their respective punishments are greatly different (Gaius is TECHNICALLY not the leader of Werlyt and they have a sort of council but everyone fricking defers to him so why does it matter).

                My entire point is that Gaius is free, while Fordola is imprisoned, yet Gaius is far worse, further from redemption, and much more dangerous. Fordola is a literal teenager who should've gotten more plot especially since she has the Echo, an artificial gift that makes her able to fight primals.

                That just circles back around to what I said about the writers. I agree with you that Gaius is much more dangerous, but I disagree that this somehow means Fordola shouldn't be punished. The difference is Fordola was captured during the war while Gaius had been off the grid since the end of ARR. Nobody knew where he was, so it's not like Ala Mhigo could go and capture him.
                >Fordola is a literal teenager who should've gotten more plot especially since she has the Echo, an artificial gift that makes her able to fight primals.
                She does get utilized in the SHB patches to help deal with the lunar primals, but then a cure for tempering is developed in those same patches and then with EW the primal threat is basically done. So of course there's nowhere else for her to go except back into Ala Mhigo's custody.

                I'm not saying that logically she shouldn't be punished, I'm saying there is no real reason to ditch her character. Thematically she can be included in our journey if they wanted. They just don't do it because they're b***hes and only the most powerful people get a pass.

                He literally did. Theodric was a lunatic entirely on his own and the Ala Mhigan people declared war on him. Gaius supported the resistance effort and waited until they'd exacted their own justice before moving his army in and taking the city without any resistance because they'd already exhausted themselves.

          The coherence is the writers (or at least Werlyt's) like Gaius more than they do Fordola. Which you're right, is totally stupid and illogical. Both Gaius and Fordola should be locked up in Ala Mhigo.

    3.X is objectively the best written series of patches from start to finish. Each MSQ portion is conclusive to what it presents in the patch while simultaneously weaving multiple plot threads along. Ala Mhigan resistance didn't come out of nowhere, WoD didn't come out of nowhere, everything flows. Compare to SB, SHB, or EW patch MSQ where it's all filler made to "hide" what going on in the next expansion, or suddenly put in effort for X.3 after dragging feet for X.1 and X.2.

      I agree with this. The political stuff int he patches setting up 3.0 and the later patches with the Emperor dunking on everyone, they are the most well-written stuff in terms of structure and dialogue in the game alongside Garlemald.

      It's just that Stormblood doesn't string together nicely, the spectacle isn't as good, that's why it feels boring.

          Yda was comic relief. We're supposed to actually want Wuk to become ruler of whatever that place is called. She's Lyse 2.0 if anything

            Wuk's whole motivation for wanting to win the throne is to keep it out of the hands of a guy she feels would be bad for Tural, which is understandable but doesn't make her a good leader. Even her pitch to us was "I'm not the other guy and you can go exploring". It's not impossible that she'll go through some growth and become an actual leader, but I got the impression that Wuk is not necessarily the best choice for the throne just because she won't lead Tural into a pointless war.

              I'll be genuinely mad if the game ends with her actually being made leader. The game even points out that there's really only one person NOT fit to lead

            You know, i don't really mind all that much because female characters can wear cool sets that were locked to male characters. I just voidlist any male character wearing revealing clothing tbh, sounds like a skill issue on your part

    Summoner is a good class to level if I want Pictomancer geared out isn't it? I don't have any other magic class levelled.

      Yes, SMN is the best magic class to level because it gets a healer leveled up along with it for max role quest efficiency.

        Thanks anon, I thought it was but wasn't completely sure. For some reason I thought I had to level BLM for Picto gear.

        I just miss a lot of the Job Quest NPCs. It was infuriating that all Sid got in EW was a background cameo in an Erenville scene
        I would even settle for one quest per job at the end of the expac like ShB did at this point

      You mean by griefing them? I guess by being a shitty tank since I tend not to notice anyone fricking up any other role unless it's particularly egregious.

          That's why you have to be smart about it. Don't go full throttle on it until it's time to roll on loot. As long as the countdown is ticking on that they can't kick you. After that you just need to set the pace where you're going slowly enough to make them miserable but not slowly enough for the loot to be autodistributed and allowing them to kick you. It's a art that takes practice.

          Labyrinth of the Ancients griefing is easy mode because there are many opportunities to make your party miserable and there will be almost no opportunities for them to get rid of you since there will always be loot to roll for.

            Griefing in XIV is like bullying children at a playground. It takes no skill and is just sad, reconsider your life choices is that's what you do for fun.

    Every complaint about this game just seems to come from Shadowbringer fanboys which is hilarious because that's the expac that cemented XIVs current boss fight and combat/job design to homogenous shit.
