        Anyways, what do you do when the retarded tank only uses a single aoe skill per pull and the blm ends up tanking, despite telling him multiple times to use aoe, kick his ass or let him die

        you're on the right track but you shouldn't be using your gcd heals unless you absolutely have to and in most non-savage content you don't actually have to, even wall-to-walls generally don't require gcd healing
        you should be spamming broil/art of war as much as possible and healing by weaving your ogcd heals like lustrate/indom/excog/all the fairy spells

        Shielding in this game is only necessary if it's to block otherwise fatal damage. You have enough oGCD healing and mitigation that GCD healing and shielding should be your last answer to a problem. Remember, using oGCD AoE heals is fine if it's just to heal the tank during a trash pull since it doesn't cost you uptime, so don't hold onto something like Whispering Dawn or Seraph's Consolation.

            1.0 was not a good game, ff11 is a good game but trying to make it again would have been the worst fucking business decision to take 14, both 14 and 11 are good in their own ways and being an oldfag about everything isn't a personality.

              I'm not an oldfag. I only started playing FFXI a few years ago, since I was disappointed with XIV and heard XI was better.
              XI was a legitimate improvement. The core systems are better, the environment is more pleasant, and the jobs and dungeons are a world apart in quality.
              If Square wanted, they could've made another XI, and I'll always be upset that they didn't.

              Also, XIV's mahjong sucks with 0 rewards (due to collectorfags throwing a fit over having to learn Mahjong), so I'm stuck playing Majsoul for my jollies.

                None of that is relevant to what he said except the oldfag part.
                XI's quality has nothing to do with 1.0's quality. 1.0 was objectively dogshit, and was nothing like FFXI.

                Did it really have to become an LFG simulator? I played before and after Heavensward came out. The job design of XIV is terrible. Too many buttons and too few functions. No menus. No customization. Is this really what sells?

      I'm afraid it's going to be small as fuck content-wise.
      You can already see the rocks and the terrain are pretty uninspired and lots of overused textures.
      Your DoH and DoL apparently won't even play a role in it either.
      I don't know about you but that sounds pretty concerning. The actual buildings and animal husbandry itself might be super fucking bare-bones and meaningless.
      It'll probably have NOTHING to do with the actual game and struggle to scratch the urge of animal crossing or harvest moon everyone is hoping for.
      There's a pond and don't get me wrong the fishing in the game sucks dick because it's purely RNG and you can't actually put any skill into it, but how are you even supposed to catch animals? Just run up and press a button?

          Somehow reading through this made me even more hopeless than I was before.
          Island Sanctuary is really just going to be another small sphere of content that is almost completely detached from the main game because these fucking Japs can't come up with something genuinely fun.
          Even golden saucer was ruined and the only reason retards go there is to do their daily MGP farming. They don't go there to play with other players in poker, black jack, or even to fuck around in slots. The whole ass concept of golden saucer was to be a gambling casino, and all you can really play is Tripple Triad and Mahjong. Chocobo racing sucks dick and at the end of the day they have no intentions of fixing this.
          It was my fault though. I got my hopes up.
          Square enix has consistently taught me that I should never do that, because they always disappoint. They ruin remasters and they fucking butcher soundtracks every single time.
          You'd think their biggest game that pulls in the majority of revenue would see some funds put back into it, but no.

          I guess when you contextulize clicking three different sparklings as doing something it's a bit better. But it'd be nice if it was something actually fun to play.
          Like if I could show someone me playing it and have them think that looks fun or is actually a game instead of wow it's MMO chores. Really I think MMO features should stand up on their own, like if sancturaries were developed and fun enough you could want to play XIV just for them. I don't think it's much to expect at least a fun minigame or something like pic related for each activity as a minimum though. But I know we're getting click the shiny once a day.

        That was old Scholar but that job is long gone. It pretty much was a dps job that would shield and mitigate damage instead of doing big heals, which it did have but they were on long cooldows. You had to kill your healing power with a stance to dps but you also had a pet fairy (whose heals weren't affected by said stance) which could actually handle a lot of the healing herself. Everything has to play the same now, can't have any sort of variation and no fun allowed.

      Healers will often just stand and do fucking nothing when everyone is safe and topped. The retarded ones will keep overhealing to look like they're doing something.
      I don't know how it is in FF but in WoW some classes are versatile enough to take the load off of the tank for a moment so yes, I'd expect a DPS to tank if he can get away with it and the actual main tank is dying.

        ff healers have lot's of ogcd's (unless youre whm lmao!) they can press that will be more than enough to keep a group healed so you can keep dpsing, you generally want to not be casting your gcd heals but you definitely should if you need to, most of the time tho you are dpsing. it's about planning your heals so you can dps as much as possible.

      The healer doesn't really have a lot to do in between heals that isn't DPS. Damage in FFXIV usually comes in the form of raidwide blows mitigated by tank cooldowns and healer cooldowns, and all other attacks are avoidable (doubling, obviously, as punishments for not cooperating with the fight's design).

      Tanks have a simplified melee rotation to keep them busy (all tanks except Warrior still have a relatively busy attacking design) and most of their actual tanking abilities are OGCDs and reactionary abilities. Healers have a single-target attack button, a group attack button, and a DoT to cast, with everything else filled up by OGCD heals or healing attacks, and situational abilities.

        White Mage's AoE damage spell also has a stun effect on it so they can spam it against groups of enemies in dungeons and effectively give the tank 10 seconds of invulnerability each pull while also making the pull much quicker because of the damage.

          FWIW it does have White Mage as that typical "healslut" job, WHM hardcasts spells the most often out of any of the four healers, especially compared to the two "shield healers," Scholar and Sage, that are OGCD oriented. They're also not as versatile as they seem at first, my description of "a single-target attack button, a group attack button, and a DoT to cast" is accurate to all four healers; when not healing, which is often because healing is mainly reactionary, you'll find things are pretty simple.

          Though make no mistake, a healer is still a lynchpin of the party, and the group won't function without one.

      You need to counter their propaganda with your own propaganda. Don't shower him with facts because that never works, it will only push him away. You need to slip these things into conversations over a long period of time. Plant the seeds of doubt and nourish them, don't expect a whole-ass doubt tree to just spawn there the moment you open your mouth.
      I wish you luck if you really care about him. It's just a phase that you need to learn to live with but a very destructive one that many don't come back from. There is always hope even if he actually transitions.

                Every time.

                There's "complexity" and there's "tedium," and it's very easy to trick morons and wistful MMO grognards into thinking tedium was complexity.

                It could but the prevailing paradigm was to have a "main" and "off" healer and it didn't start shifting until the very tail end of Heavensward. It wasn't really until Delete MNK was doing some really impressive speedkills that people were starting to realize that maybe a Selene on Sic and making the AST/WHM do everything isn't as useful as using Eos and actually fucking pressing Indom.

                Cross class skills were the only thing wrong with HW design and Role Skills were a genuine improvement but like everything SB and ShB did they managed to somehow fuck those up too with retarded choices like removing functionally identical ramparts and esunas from other jobs and just forcing them to have random PLD/WHM animations for a core skill that they already had flavorful versions of for no reason whatsoever.
                Keep defending the game being made braindead easy for retarded gays, it's funny to watch you Shadowfetuses act tough while you're literally whining about a game you never played being too hard because you're incapable of pressing more than 2 buttons.

                Nah, HW jobs had unique identities to them with the exception of some jobs that were botched due to time constraints and just made into the easy, bad training wheels jobs (PLD, WHM, MNK) or jobs that they clearly didn't have time to flesh out properly (BRD)
                WAR had a build-and-release style with an all-in burst.
                DRK focused on timing cooldowns for parry procs and MP management.
                PLD was a standard rotation.
                MNK was a sustained death-by-a-thousand-cuts DPS.
                NIN was a bursty support DPS with a lot of oGCDs.
                DRG was about managing your BOTD timer and maximizing geirskoguls.
                MCH was about playing piano.

                No, it doesn't. Nearly everything NIN does is on the GCD now. Its GCDs are also less interesting because Dancing Edge, Shadowfang, and Mutilate are gone. You just spam Aeolian Edge and occasionally Armor Crush between your Raiju Cleaves.
                >On what planet is this not a build-and-release
                On the planet where you're not building it, you start with the gauge and spend it progressively as the cooldown comes back.

                There wasn't anything wrong with it at all, it made the job more interesting and gave you something to optimize about it, to the extent that it did more damage than WAR when you did.

                it has nothing that makes traditional ff summoners feel good, it just looks like one on the most superficial level. its gameplay resembles nothing like an actual ff summoner, i don’t think i remember a single ff where summons were just stances for the summoner to use different spells (which are all the same in xiv anyway)

                Primal swoops in, does an attack, fucks off. That's the absolute essence of summoner if you disregard the huge cataclysmic attack animations, which are here in this game as signature attacks for trial primals.
                >its gameplay resembles nothing like an actual ff summoner,
                What, the old scheme did? Traditional FF summoner is a glorified black mage that casts Fira/Blizzara/Thundara on the entire enemy party, but its damage doesn't get halved. Also Carbuncle for Ruby Light or Reflect and Phoenix for raises.

                it’s not even the animations, ff summons usually have huge costs, sometimes slow casting, have different effects that at the very least exploit elemental weaknesses, much bigger area of effects than most if not all other jobs which give them their own niches in battle
                none of that is present in the ffxiv version, in no small part due to the job design team’s design philosophy that decreases the amount of work they have to put in to test and balance jobs, at the expense of their paying customers

                SMN in the vast majority of games is an AoE-focused BLM with fancier animations. I would love more support focus so it could feel more like XI's, but the current version in XIV is nothing unusual.

                I'm not arguing that every job was perfect because that never was the case to be honest, but the only thing that truly sucks here is Squenix designing every fight the same way so every job that didn't fit the mold got thrown under the bus until they got "reworked" aka dumbed down or streamlined or whatever excuse of a word you want to pick here. Monk is the perfect example of a job that completely fell off design wise because every fight has to have overly long cinematic interruptions for soken to shoehorn his ebin vocal songs into it. Even if it might not always be the best, I'd still take some interesting job design over the boring cookie cutter shit we get nowadays.

                Monk's my perfect example of a system that's just total shit, you can either have the boss do interesting things or you can have the player do interesting things, but those interesting things are going to grind together and be incompatible if you try to have both. Think the Shisui Ruby Queen midboss that forces you to hit a chest with Old, and hypnotizes you to draw-in if you ignore it; either way you're, guaranteed, dropping GL, because both Old and the hypnotism time last longer than GL's cap.

                But it's not the same like current DRK because it would drain MP and kill your natural MP regen, which then not only killed your damage but mitigation as well since you couldn't turn tank stance on

                It would only do that if you literally weren't attacking AND left it on. The only way you could run out of MP completely was spamming AD or DA. It wasn't like GL where not attacking for a few seconds would make you drop it completely.

This isn't even unique to FFXIV, almost every MMO these days has a "make gauge go up, spend gauge, repeat" structure because that's a good way to keep player engagement high and make a class feel like it's working towards something.

          Actually, they did in ShB in which the healing potency scaling would be gradually reduced between level 71 and 80, at which point you'd be effectively around 28% weaker in terms of raw potency. If anything though, it's a necessity when they also give you more oGCDs to throw around.

    There a reason I keep seeing White Mages completely ignoring Regen and just spamming Cure 2? I'm seeing it in lower level content and level 70+ dungeons. Hell, the other day I ran an Expert Roulette and had a White Mage just refuse to use Regen or Medica 2. Just kept spamming Cure 2 over and over again.

    Feels like a recent issue too. Didn't have this issue a month ago, it's only the last couple weeks that I keep encountering these people. I'd normally write it off if they were just forgetting to use Regen because they're too busy doing DPS, but again, they're sitting there spamming Cure 2, barely able to keep me up on bigger pulls. Fucking ridiculous, it's one of the biggest benefits of even playing White Mage since you can toss Regen on and forget in a lot of cases.

        They're not even using Cure 1 to get a free Cure 2. They're just slamming the Cure 2 button over and over again, both failing to keep up with the damage enemy groups are doing on double pulls and contributing nothing in the way of DPS. It's baffling to me, especially as someone who uses White Mage as their main healer. You slap Regen and Medica 2 on a tank and can then spend the entire encounter just DPS'ing.

        that's rough, it is powerful like you said and it's why i like WHM over other healers
        it's ezpz
        plus i fucking love the WHM robes

        I don't get it, genuinely. Having Regen and Medica 2 on makes it where you can just sleep through encounters. Cure 2 is great for when shit hits the fan, but something has to go seriously wrong for that to be necessary.

      I honestly just send my retainers out for materials each day, desynthesize everything and throw the materials on the marketboard, and use tomestones to buy whatever's selling decently.

      I don't make crazy money, but I typically come back to 100k each time I log in from it all. And it's nice since it's passive money in a lot of ways. Other than doing my daily roulettes (which being the Role in Need gets you a nice chunk), I don't have to do much to make money. I guess if I really needed it, I'd go do a bunch of fates and sell those voucher things that go for 100k+. That or actually go grind out logs to turn into lumber. Wood always sells decently.

      the problem is there's no middle ground for money making. You are either doing dailies and earning peanuts, or you're selling carries/ERP/other underground shit.

      Retainer ventures add up over time. There's also often nice ways to make money that people don't realize and you can keep an eye out. I made piles of money in Bozja by farming shitloads of fragments really easily and selling them on the MB. Another example is getting bicolored gemstones from FATEs and selling some of the shit for those, as sometimes the furnishings will sell really well. Other than that, maps are a tried and true.

      The best time to make money is right after a patch comes out. Either selling stuff as a crafter or gatherer, or shit like selling the tomestone mats for the first week.

      Could desynthesize them. The demimateria you get from them often times sells for a decent chunk to vendors, and if you get some of the more rare kinds, those can go for a lot on the marketboard. And that's ignoring the general materials you'd get as well.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      It's easy to play, you cast a white spell and then cast a black spell. RDM does have lots of autistic optimization to do as of Endwalker but the core job is simple.

      it's actually beneficial to not have them perfectly balanced, because using verflare or holy will get a bonus for less black or white mana respectively

        rdm was the easiest caster you'd make your gf play until SMN got reworked

        red mage is basically the only class that actually got more complex in endwalker instead of less. the acceleration change means you have more hard casts and have to think about how you use procs a little more, doing melee more often means you need to be in melee more often and opens up optimizations on when you spend your outside of burst melee combo for movement/actually having time to be in melee, and the extra melee finisher means that all your cooldowns are going to drift unless you very specifically use accelerate/swiftcast to resync your gcd with your cooldowns while also having the right spellspeed tier

      Don't know about doing it in any proper savage/extreme content, but I haven't had any issue with it. You just switch between the types every other spell, going between black magic and white magic until both bars are full enough to pull off the melee. The only time I've ever found myself having to pay attention is when I get a string of verfire and verstone procs and suddenly my white or black bars sky rocket. Which that just means you need to focus on one for a bit instead of switching back and forth.

      It's super simple. I'm sure there's some proper depth if you really want to be optimal about it, but generally speaking, it's hard to fuck up.

    I just make money passively through retainers and my airships/subs nowadays. I haven't had to lift a finger for years and I've made about 60-70m since EW launched, though that's mostly because I got VERY lucky when they updated the Submarines this patch.

    Least favorite job?

    Fucking hate Bard personally. It's just such an exhausting job to play. Having to keep the dots going, keep the songs going (and switching to the next one at the correct times), constantly respond to random procs, be ready to use the one ability that procs from the last song you get (and remember to use it even if you only have on charge before the song ends), all while juggling the multiple OGC moves you have. I'm sure it's plenty effective and I'm just too much of an idiot to manage everything, but goddamn. It feels like I'm being told to do a dance while spinning three plates and hopping on one foot.

    Also Machinist. Nothing like having the most intensive burst window ever where the global cooldown can barely keep up with how much you have to fit into it, then immediately going back to the 1, 2, 3 combo for the next minute or two. Crazy how they managed to make a job that's both boring and stressful at the same time.

      Physical ranged in general. MCH and BRD are too high APM with too little reward while DNC is fucking bereft of anything interesting going on but you kinda have to pay attention too because of combo procs.

      machinst is one of the few jobs that dont work this way because you have a drill every 20s and air anchor every 40s while every job does stuff on a 2/1 minute or 30s timeline and then you also have total freedom on when you spend hypercharge between your two minute burst

        It's based for tanks though

        >Spend the next 2 minutes slowly climbing up to the peak again, like a rollercoaster climbing a hill
        >All the while, using defensive cooldowns, managing tank swaps, and using TBN/Obliation to protect individual teamates/your co-tank
        >Blow it all again during burst window

        It gives every fight a sense of pacing, payoff, and tension: all while letting you do all the fun defensive parts of being a tank during the downtime

      I noticed the uptick of absolute useless troglodytes when ShB launched. No doubt the boosts enabled them already but expansion launches really brought them under the spotlight for me and now they're here to stay. It's only been worse since and naturally a result of making your game more appealing to normalfags.

      This problem is easily solved by making the right character on the first try like I had always done. You do need to spend hours in character creation but the result is well worth it.

    I don't play ff14 but as in all rules in any mmo wouldn't healer have resource problem if they do both and wouldn't be effective in both role?

      Its really only WoW that does not technically want healers to dps a lot of the time but even then. This is more or less just idiots who heal when the tank is pulling and die.

        So in ff14 gameplay flow is more on offensive side? As in when tank pulls dps+healer will do they best to clear everything real fast before any enemy start doing their hard hitting attack?

          Tank and healer DPS actually matters a lot, if the healer is just sitting on their hands and doing only heals and the tank is asleep you WILL notice things taking way longer to die.

            God reminds me on Holminster switch when ShB came out and if everyone was not doing dps it would take forever to kill mobs.

              That was because of everyone being undergeared. A lot of people got used to doing massive pulls but instead of being overgeared in alliance gear, they're now under the recommended if they don't have a full tomeset. Tanks were weak, healers couldn't heal tanks properly and DPS players didn't do as much damage. Its always more fun to do dungeons at the start of the expac before ilvl creep settles in. Healing Holminster double pulls was really fun, you basically couldn't dps or the tank would die.

                well yeah but even now the early ShB dungeons mobs are still really tanky for no amazing reason just the way its made. they clearly were trying something it just didnt cap out.

          there are no hard difficulty dungeons until 6.25 which is a couple of months away
          technically low dps makes pulls harder because tanks and healers will run out of cooldowns but 90% of pulls are easy enough that the healer can still keep up just by using their gcd heals which have no cooldown

            depending on what you thinkg "hard" is there are some reallly cunty dungeons at really annoying lvl's for some healer tank combo's and can be super fucking annoying to do I.E. Bardam's mettle as a sch with a meh tank is a nightmare.

          you could say that but honestly it depends on the dungeon or content you are doing. some you just need to spam heals to keep the tank alive and some you barely need to at all so just spam attacks but you just need to be careful, when the tank is pulling all the mobs and running the dps and healers can steal aggro if they dps/heal to much so you just needa wait until the tank stops and smash em all down

          In dungeons, especially early dungeons, tanks and healers do far more aoe dps than actual DPS. And in raids, tanks and healers combined equal 1-2 extra DPS players in terms of damage but enrage timers supposedly don't take them into account. You will hit enrage without them doing DPS though so I have no idea what they're talking about.

    I know this isn't related to FFXIV but god, fuck Medic mains in TF2. Some of the biggest douchebags I've ever met. If you're not decked out with australiums and unusuals, they'll just laugh at you and watch you burn to death. I've been playing for like eight years and I can count on one hand the amount of times I've been healed by a Medic for more than a fraction of a second. Fuck healers in general.

      You suffer from success or just suffer. I had my Heavy dressed up like Johnny Bravo in the Nazi armour with the Deus Ex HR arm, and I had three Medics healing me at the same time. Everyone got mad at me.

    Does Dark Knight have the widest discrepency between 'shit Dark Knight players' and 'good Dark Knight players' of the 4 tanks? I swear they are easily the most divisive tanks when I heal. Some are unbelievably bad, some are very good.

      I think its more depending on the team. Drk has the worst miti over time so the fight needs to be over asap so high damage team members are probably what you wanna look for before the drk.

    • 2 weeks ago

      Yes, because DRK is, despite what people say, not the easiest tank to play. Timing TBN properly in raids is extremely annoying and it has the most OGCDs of any of the tanks. If you think DRK is just 123, 123, then you're probably a bad DRK.

        nobody in their right mind would say it is the ‘easiest’ because war exists
        gnb and pld are still harder

          I actually think tank difficult from hard to easy (in terms of optimal use) goes PLD > DRK > GNB > WAR. I don't actually think GNB is that hard, you just click a lot of buttons, but there isn't too much to manage as its a MP-less class. You'll notice the 2 hardest tanks I believe are the two MP tanks. An extra system to manage makes any class more tricky. PLD is super strict which means a single fuck up is very costly and a lot of its power budget is put into utility, and DRK is just a really busy job. There's a lot going on and a lot to manage constantly.

            not really
            mp and blood are easier to manage than 3 cartridges
            fucking up double down also destroys your own rdps while fudging mp and blood outside buffs cost you nothing personally, it only hurts the rdps pf your party members
