>It's alright not to play it everyday. Since it's just a game, you can stop forcing yourself if it's hard on you to keep that up. Rather, it'll just pile up unnecessary stress if you limit yourself into playing just that one game since there are so many other games out there. So, do come back and play it to your heart's content when the major patch kicks in, then stop it to play other games before you got burnt out, and then come back for another major patch. This will actually make me happier, and in the end, I think this is the best solution I can answer for keeping your motivation up for the game.

          At lower levels healers don’t have all their tools so some times you don’t want to w2w

          going wall to wall means your healer can't dps until dusk vigil. its especially dangerous in brayflox, qarn, cutters, stone vigil and AV

      Excalibur is so fucking boring.
      Not that there's any other world in NA that doesn't range from abhorrent to boring.
      I met some of the most disgusting women and men on Excalibur though.
      Fucking simps and whores everywhere.
      Ultros fucking takes the cake though.
      The ones who are terminally online and think their character in game somehow replace their repulsive real world image.

      Is JP really as comfy as people say? Not that I'm interested in Raiding either though. Actually why the fuck do people still play this game?
      I thought Island Sanctuary was going to slap but after getting all creatures and their rare variants and maxing everything out and buying the mounts I kind of looked at it and realized it lacks depth.
      Man...
      You know what fuck this game honestly.
      There's so much better shit to play.
      If they didn't charge a fucking subscription then I'd be okay with this kind of lazy as fuck development, but I can't justify coughing money at this dogshit when all you get is this shit.

              XIV's budget gets yanked out and thrown into a furnace for all the failed remakes and remasters. It also is used to fund the retarded CEO's and Board of director's blunders and flops.
              Just look at what SE has been making for the past 20 years.
              Dogshit.
              Pure fucking shame.
              But they're shameless.
              XIV is only keeping SE alive because of how many fantasias and subscriptions are constantly going into the XIV machine.
              The funny part is that most of the revenue doesn't ever make it back into the game.
              They have essentially created a paypig machine.
              And it isn't even P2W. It's more of a cult than a community if you think about it.
              Seriously, this shit is fucking crazy.
              Not in a good way.
              I wouldn't recommend this fucking game to any of my friends.
              Too much disappointment and there's nowhere near enough reward for putting effort into it.
              They have absolutely no fucking respect for the players at all.
              They timegate content to make up for the fact that every piece of the game is completely contained and cut off from the mainline quests.
              You want to have the best raiding gear?
              Have fun waiting every week to get the raid gear!

      You don't NEED to do all that shit tho. There is no FOMO, because those things will always be available.

Only done one beast tribe (moogles for the mount), tomes take 2 hours to cap and only worth doing during active raid tier, island sanctuary lmao just go play stardew valley. Fair on the house shit, but tbh auto demolition have been disabled for years now so it doesnt even matter atm.
      I basically just log in to raid or idle and that's it. This game is literally anti FOMO.

        Big pulls, not knowing dungeon mechanics, and poor use of mit. Even after explaining after wipes they do the same stuff over again. I'd rather eat the 30 min penalty and just leave. 30 minutes of peace doing literally anything else is better than 30 minutes of me raging since I have anger issues. Easy choice for me. They can wait on another healer. It's better for both of us.

          I should clarify that I'm fine with big pulls, but you should know how to use your mits and also know where not to stand so you don't get hit by dungeon mechanics. This mainly seems to be an issue in ARR dungeons, so once I finally get my last healer above 50, I probably won't have this issue anymore. All the dungeons after have walls after 2 packs or so.

            Yeah and I can accept that, but these tanks were offensively bad. I've ran many dungeons with new tanks and they at least try to be good and are receptive to advice. The ones I've bailed on just don't learn wipe after wipe, even after multiple people tell them what's going wrong. One time I had tank get me killed by not taking aggro. I had to revive back at the start since no could revive me, but as I was running back, they went on to grab the next 2 packs of enemies and then wipe the rest of the party. I didn't bail on that, but I'm dealing with these kind of tanks here. This was in an sub lvl 50 ARR dungeon, so the tank couldn't keep themselves alive for that kind of pull without a healer.
