          Source? Really the hardest part of any raiding content is having everything go well for all X amount of people on a given attempt. It's not even remotely as difficult input-wise as something like Stepmania, fangame platformers, or various forms of speedrunning like Super Mario 64.

            its literally only difficult because you have to rely on over 10 people doing everything perfectly. aka it's fake difficulty

          It's really not, they're basically puzzle rooms. Most of the clear time involves figuring out just what needs to be done and understanding how everything plays out, very little of the actual fight relies on individual skill, especially when stuff like mitigation and heal timings are scripted and planned to a t.

        i don't think 'impressive' is the correct term for the game anyway. it's very much doing things other games are doing, but its coolness is that it sometimes does them better, and it's doing all of these various things at the same time.

        It's kind of funny when something very serious happens and my Lala is barely within the shot looking very non-threatening and cute. Maybe it wasn't the best pick as a race for the story and it kinda disconnects me at times, but I really like it.

      This isn't true. The character you make has zero agency and does all the same shit whosoever WoL on youtube does. Dungeons and trials are completely braindead, happen once every 5 hours at best, and almost nothing useful to the story is conveyed within them. Overworld contains nothing interesting or useful, it basically feels like a plastic model of a world to stand in for actually designing one. All questing is just mindlessly following waypoints, so there's nothing to miss there.

        This 100% I have no idea why people insist its any different with "your character" unless you straight up headcanon things for your character which, seeing the typical FFXIV player, makes sense

        Anonymous

        I think you're just a joyless loser.

        Dungeons and trials are '' braindead '' but their presentation is top notch, the music, the environments and the voice acting. There is lots of amazing things in The Singularity Reactor, The Final Steps of Faith, The Royal Menagerie, The Crown of the Immaculate, The Dying Gasp, The Seat of Sacrifice, The Dark Inside, The Mothercrystal, The Final Day, and not getting to experience them first-hand is a detriment to the overall experience.

        The WoL might not get agency, but anyone who play and are into roleplaying games are generally happy to roleplay beyond the limitations of the games dialogue choices, and eventually come to feel some kind of attachment to the character they have created regardless of how many choices they can make.

            I didn't say immediately connect with my '' plastic doll '' though.. but as the story progressed, I became more immersed into the story and the world through the character I made, thus making me care about the character as well.

          no it isn't. they're all banal hallways so you can just watch someone do it on youtube and it's the same as if you did it yourself, minus the part where you mindlessly smack buttons (optional btw).

      Dragoon doesn't get an AoE attack until level 40. Pugilist 26, Ninja 35, Samurai 26, Reaper 25, Archer and Machinist 18, Dancer 15, THM 12, Arcanist 26, RDM 15. It's not really a slam dunk until the tanks get their AoE combo at 40 and you don't (didn't?) necessarily want to pull everything in Dzaemel or Aurum Vale anyways.

      The second reply to you is dumb, don't wall to wall pull if the DPS sub-50 you're fighting with don't have AoE.
