        Largesse, one of the healer role actions in Stormblood (pilfered from White Mage originally, they used to have Divine Seal which was the same thing). Boosted GCD healing spell potency for a while.

        NIN got rid of oodles of useless bullshit. For reference, Hyosho Ranryu is the most use Hyoton has ever gotten throughout the job's history. This job has been present since mid-ARR.

            Bro at least pretend you read my post, I wasn't using Hyoton in ARR either. When the game was at its WoW-iest and definitely before the Heavensward era you're thinking of when you weep tears of liquid patriotism for Ishgard and the joys of Heavensward and before Stormshadowwalker ruined everything. Hyosho Ranryu is the most anybody has ever used Hyoton for any reason. Find an Xbox player to try and bullshit that we had a golden age of crowd control.

              There wasn't a golden age, but there were instances where you did want to use Bind or Heavy abilities. Then the devs stopped making enemies like that because it's just easier to make every encounter about damage. You're larping so you don't remember when Shadowbringers was coming out and Yoshida made a big deal about how he realized they were slacking on situations in which to use CC abilities and introduced the flashing castbar to indicate silenceable abilities and promised they were going to actually design fights to use it. And then didn't. Because the dev team is lazy and incompetent.

                Sounds like you just want the most streamlined experience possible like pretty much every other XIV player. God forbid you're capable of anything but straight damage. That might force you to consider if you can interact with something in another way.

                Yes yes the Interject cast bar. Clearly the intention was just to provide a visible determination of whether or not you can slap the guy around to cancel an ability he's using, seeing as Stormblood and prior were full of points where you can interrupt a mob or midboss just by kicking him. Which largely you can still do, btw, Interject may as well be a second cast of Low Blow.

            Astro was actually kinda shnice in Shadowbringers but they made it uninteresting busywork in Endwalker. Quit after week 2 of release because it and Red Mage were the only classes I found interesting (though I didn't look too hard into Black Mage which seemed like it could've been neat at the high-optimization level.) Unfort that they neutered Red Mage too.

    Endwalker has been extremely disappointing as a postgame.
    Criterion Dungeons are a nice idea and in execution I prefer them FAR more than regular dungeons, but the rewards are just kinda horrible.
    But that's literally it beyond the usual Savages and Ultimates.
    The Island Sanctuary shit is a waste of time.
    The new deep dungeon is just copied and pasted content from ARR, except no-one is running it so getting a 4-man squad is impossible.
    The relic is a fat fricking amount of nothing, grinding tomestones in Duty Finder was miserable.

      I think all normal dungeons should be made in the same way as Variant Dungeons. Multiple different routes to take, a sprinkling of hidden stuff, a small mix-up to the bosses. Give me a tiny bit of variety in what I'm going to see daily in roulettes.

        The old ARR dungeons used to be like that. Not quite as branching but definitely had a lot more optional paths and weren't just "run from A to B killing everything along the way".

        If they're in roulettes they shouldn't have branching paths, but I'd welcome variable boss mechanics or something. The Variant puzzle mechanics only work because they're not in a roulette and you can do it solo or with friends taking your time to read the entries, explore the environment and think about the puzzles

    All new dungeons are a brainless waste of time linear corridors whit zero mechanics only interesting the first possibly second time you play them only good for practicing rotations bosses and sometimes music are the only good part about them.
    There are literally no good side quests in the open world maps. Every single one is go to destination A click on thing or person or kill 3 -5 things then click on person.
    Most of the classes play exactly the same.
    Game lacks true raids that are not just 24 man dungeons. I wish we had more BA/DR or even Castrum or Dalirada type content.
    What the game calls a raid is just slightly harder trials or extreme trials.

I haven't played wow in 10 or so years, but I remember the overworld there was a lot more fun. You had areas that were protected by elite enemies, certain quest objectives that stood out and you knew that people fight mini bosses there, sometimes you have hidden stuff and easter eggs and shit.

        Do you think it suddenly changes the argument if you did coil in 2.5 instead? Like there were better angles to take if this mythical bindable coil mob exists I'm sure.

        [...]
        A6S has orbs you need to heavy/bind so that they don't all hit the center of the arena and explode at the same time, you can't dps them down.
        Play video games.

        See, this is a better angle as it's something that actually fricking exists. The only problem is we were talking about coils, not Alexander, but at least it's an instance of CC in a relevant context.

      this is the crux of the whole thing, DPS has always beaten CC and always will, it is not possible to argue the other way around when the sole exception is blue mage being able to lock enemies down for 30+ seconds and murderfrick them

That's without getting into the fact that you think doing anything but pressing your damage button is a savage level mechanic. What a little pussy homosexual you are.

      this is the crux of the whole thing, DPS has always beaten CC and always will, it is not possible to argue the other way around when the sole exception is blue mage being able to lock enemies down for 30+ seconds and murderfrick them

      A6S has orbs you need to heavy/bind so that they don't all hit the center of the arena and explode at the same time, you can't dps them down.

        Probably because you don't actually play video games. Skill expression is when, as you get better at a video game, you can do more complex actions and are rewarded for pulling them off successfully. It's really not a complicated concept at all, so I have to hope you're just pretending to be stupid because you know you have no skill to express in the first place.

            Where was that said? Do you think RPGs don't allow for skill expression? Even this hollow husk of a game has some small instances of skill expression. BLM is the biggest example of that.
            In a proper RPG, skill expression comes from knowledge of the game's systems and how to take full advantage of them.

                It's really not nebulous at all, it just varies slightly from game to game because different games have different mechanics. Skill expression in RPGs is obviously different from skill expression in action games because they test different skills. RPGs are generally knowledge and preparation checks. Why do you argue so dishonestly?

            In more interestingly-designed MMOs those rotations change based on context. I haven't played in a while, but WoW for example had a lot more PROCs in general that would force your skill usage to change on the fly. Encounter design also required more support-/mobility-skill usage that had a penchant for more randomness as well, so the problem-solving as a group used to be pretty fun and could easily go off the rails. Granted, in high-level trials and what not in XIV the execution needed can throw attempts into chaos as well, regardless of how much more choreographed the design in general is. But I digress.

        Before EW, quite a few jobs had small micro-optimizations that resulted from QoL being unavailable for them. For example, RDM's manafication used to double the gauge and reset the cooldowns on 2 of its oGCDs and a smart player could leverage this to get more oGCD uses and gauge throughout a fight. In EW, the gauge benefit was made a flat 50 and the 2 oGCDs in question now have 2 charges each with no refresh, making it impossible to really derive a benefit from good timing. SAM's meikyo getting 2 charges makes timeline construction nearly trivial. And do not get me started on SMN. Others too, but I am less qualified to speak about them.

        When QoL is introduced, the skill expression one can gain by taking advantage of rotations not being perfectly streamlined is also removed.
