        Mentors are all cancer and is ultimately a flawed system. A truly beneficial mentor system would rigorously vet participants and offer either no reward or rewards based on individual performance.

        What we have now is literally a glorified status icon that means nothing other than
        >Yes, I have reached level cap in a game where it is incredibly easy to do so
        >Yes, I have unsynced/got carried through all the hard content in the game
        >Yes, I have farmed enough upvotes by playing as healer/tank

        NN itself is just another shitty chat room because the mentors aren't actually interested in helping people master a game they themselves have no interest in doing.

        XIV isn't the pinnacle in writing or anything but neither is anime in general, if you'd said when compared to critically acclaimed movies or western TV shows that'd be one thing, but anime? All of it is shitty shipping wars and self insert garden gnomery with the incredibly "funny" bit of something ridiculous happening and the straight man describing what's happening on screen at the top of his lungs.

          Pure unadulterated delusion. The average anime is not very good, but XIV's story does not hold up to the average anime. You're more likely to find something more enjoyable turning on something random on fucking CrunchyRoll of all places than XIV.

          Go experience other things, you clearly have brain rot.

            Your average anime discussion thread goes something like "woah that episode was cool/shit, I wonder what's gonna happen next" or "MC better breed X girl or this series is wasting my time".
            Again, if we're talking about media in general then yes, XIV isn't even close to being the pinnacle of writing, but compared to fucking ANIME? You're deluding yourself.

      I'm kind of surprised this happened, I thought they would have learned not to let that happened considering the same thing happened in WoW.
      It doesn't even make as much sense, in WoW all the classes got homogenized cause everyone bitched about how imbalanced certain classes were in PvP, but the PvP in FFXIV up until recently sucked dick.

        Considering you didn't even bother trying to argue with any of my points except one I won't bother either.
        Anyway, the point with the socializing thing is there's no way to organically meet new people by just playing the game.
        Back when FATEs were useful this was super simple since you'd be joining FATE parties and spending a lot of time with people from your server playing the actual game. Same with raiding before raid finder existed and such since you had to physically go to the location where raid entrances were to queue up you'd often be hanging out with lots of fellow raiders while looking for groups and such which made it easier to bond with people.
        Now the game promotes total isolation by having everything be istance-based where you party up with people from other servers who you're never gonna see again so no one even bothers talking to each other. If you want to meet new people you basically have to stop playing the game to AFK in a house just like you said.
        Also I like how you imply I'm a WoW player when I clearly showed you my playtime which I'd bet all of my fucking money on being 4x more than yours even with it not including the hours I spent playing on Steam and PS3

                Which, of course, isn't to get into the fact that the devs need to come up with these contrived ways to keep FATEs relevant since no one wants to do them otherwise rather than simply trying to bring them up to par with the other leveling alternatives to make them, you know, ACTUALLY useful in regular play and not just for gimmick content like relics and Yo-Kai Watch.

        It's not just a classes issue, content prior to the current expansion stuff just hasn't been tuned well at all to account for stat creep.
        DPS do too much damage, healers heal too much and tanks take too little damage.
        You pretty much never have to think very hard about what you're doing because the game never punishes you for it, therefore it's brainless.
        You also get pretty much everything handed to you now so you never have to interact with anything other than MSQ, but whatever I get it, gotta rush new players through as fast as possible even if it's at the cost of their experience with the old parts of the game.
        >shit taste
        Give me a single good joke in the MSQ. Please go on.
        Is it gonna be the -hilarious- Little Sun moment?
        Or Alisaie saying Alphinaud isn't buoyant? XD
        Maybe even that cutscene where Estinien confuses Alisaie for Alphinaud and she gets super pissed ohohoho the shenanigans!!
        >Elidibus and Varis
        Do tell how Elidibus's end was in any way satisfying? He was always built up as the Ascian that knew more than he was letting on and always ahead of everyone else while plotting his master plan, only for it all to be nothing and he just has a bitch fit at the end before throwing himself at you.
        Varis was just wasted in general, he has no place in the story at all.
        >class and fight design
        You didn't give much constructive here either and I'm running out of space in this post so I'll just say SCoB T7 and HW MCH are far more engaging than any of the schlopp you've been given by these devs for the past 5 or so years.
        >6.2 content
        woah... an animal crossing ripoff... it's what i've always wanted in my game primarily about fighting stuff with less and less content about actually fighting stuff...

          lol no he wasn't. He was presented as mysterious, and that's it. As far back as Heavensward he was portrayed as panicking enough to recruit Urianger to find a solution to a problem he couldn't figure out on his own. In Stormblood he then began to panic about (You) becoming too powerful. Elidibus was never portrayed as anything but a complete mystery that even the other Ascians were confused about because he was known to work against them at times. Elidibus's conclusion is the height of the game's story.

            Look at this dialogue from patch 3.4
            It implies that Elidibus finds the WoL's actions favorable and would rather have them continue doing what they're doing, getting stronger and killing primals, as part of some kind of master plan in the name of equilibrium.
            Yet after this what does he do? He tries to get Varis to unleash Black Rose to kill the WoL and when that doesn't work he just goes and does it himself in Zenos's body. Then promptly gets bitch slapped by the real Zenos which makes him flee like a bitch and from then on it's full damage control until the WoLdibus fight. A complete disservice to the character I'd say and to add insult to injury he doesn't even get a cool transformation or pre-fight cutscene like Hades he's stuck being a shitty fanservice boss.

              Because Black Rose is a light rejoining which will make use of the First. He still needs rejoinings for Zodiark.

    classes have become dogshit easy to play and the devs are very non-innovative. more or less every tank and healer can do the exact same thing with very minor parameter differences. only BLM is somewhat interesting, but it still got neutered a bit in Endwalker

    the community is full of toxic positivity. complacency is what best describes the ff14 community in terms of content updates and player skill(can't press aoe in dungeons cause you can technically clear without it)

    farming bis for multiple classes takes way too long(8 pages for 4th floor loot) and gearing is just for getting back to the powerlevel you used to be at instead of making your class play differently.

    dps checks are way too easy because it has to be clearable with double physranged + redmage. don't tell me about the current tier week1, every class cleared, prog only players are just terrible at dps. see e8s wf being cleared by a very antisynergistic comp despite people claiming the check to be crazy hard.

    all the casual content has much better alternatives in other games, seriously.

    I'd pay 30usd a month to play heavensward/stormblood favourite class designs with midas or ucob-style fights. Just slap bard, sch and nin on the wrist and it's fine, seriously.

      Ice or fire spells apply 1 stack of ice or fire, can't have both at once, maxes at 3 stacks. They also jump up in power each time you use one.

      If you use paradox, it caps whatever stack is on an enemy to 3 and is instacast always.

      If you use supernova, it does damage to anyone who has a fire or ice stack on them, 3k per stack and has insane range. It also does an extra effect, fire stacks cause a DoT of 3K for 6 seconds, each stack extends it by 3 seconds. Ice meanwhile goes from heavy to bind to a special stun at 3 stacks.

      Thunder does big damage but is melee range and has a cast time, also gives you a shield. Aetherial manipulation gives you swiftcast to instacast stuff + teleport (can also not target anyone and just give yourself swiftcast). So really good for instant-casting anything, it's the only way you should ever cast thunder.

      And your LB charges insanely fast and makes your next 6 spells the highest tier of damage (which is also AoE) + instacast, so it does insane damage to groups. Also halves the recast for supernova, so you can get some fire or ice on a whole party and hit all of them with the effects.

      The go-to is give yourself swiftcast, use ice, use paradox to max out ice, user supernova, and bam. Stunned someone within 2 GCDs. If you want to follow up, you can also do another aetherial manipulation to them and thunder. You also build ice or fire stacks even hitting someone's shield, but you can't apply the supernova dot/stun through the shield. Free chance to build up to super fuck them the moment they're out, though.

    It's contents are a double edge sword as it allows someone who plays alone to enjoy the game but ultimately the point of an MMO is to engage and communicate with other players which rarely happens unless you role-play or you get scouted into a FC (but FCs are fucking mental weirdos).

    The design of the overworld in general feels like a complete waste, they decided due to technical limitations to divide areas and these areas are barren wastelands with quests scattered around. The game rarely does anything to entice players to explore it, Heavensward huge areas are just a retarded flex that becomes a chore for many players who ends just flying to wasting money teleporting. MMOs are fucking stupid in this regard in general, not just FF14. (FATES are awesome)

    The Roulette matchmaking ruined most of my 1st time experiences more than anything, as I get coupled with extreme virgin meta gays that just want to pull everything and complain about whatever the dungeon is or how I play. Also another jab at the social aspect is that for many players their first time in a particular dungeon is waiting for 10-20 minutes outside the gate or you can just leave and access it through a menu, which convenient as it is again it completely destroys the social aspect because you don't find anyone who could potentially party up with you to tackle said dungeon. (said moments are rare nowadays unless its the latest expansion)

    MMORPGs like FF14 and WoW whose entire combat rely on 4 respective roles becomes mundane, repetitive to the extreme and the sort of strategies that are the norm in the genre aka "Pull everything and just spam AoE lol" is the most fucking retarded combat in a video game. FF14 at least added positioning and clever bosses that punish you for this but fundamentally it's an absolute ass of a system to begin with.

    I wasted so many hours on this game, as much as I loved it people pretend there's no problems with it.

      this guy gets it. 2.0's community was so much better at socializing. When zoomers took over, it went to shit. Suddenly, no one wants to explain mechanics because it's "spoilers" but everyone demands you have 1000 hours of experience with the mechanics before you even apply for a static for end-game raiding. Yoshi can't decide if he wants this to be an MMO or just another single player JRPG. He's trying to have his cake and eat it too and the community is suffering for it.

              People will keep to themselves and their hugbox rather than go out and socialize because smartphones and social media have made it increasingly easy to always stay in contact with people you already know, meaning it's never necessary to broaden your horizons and make new connections.

    >hmm nah give it to Zenos I'm sure being in charge of two separate nations thousands of miles apart with a literal ocean between them will present no trouble whatsoever, especially not with a coordinated pincer attack that would scatter his forces making it incredibly easy to lose both in one day.

    I absolutely hate playing with other people. They need to make NPCs for every single instance especially raids like Binding Coils that no one runs anymore. I don’t care if it’s slower.

      Normal raid, not trial. 90% will leave when the 20 minute cutscenes start.

    game needed control consolidation 5 years ago and never received it
    30 button rotations are fucking retarded, why do you have 10 buttons that could be squished into 1? dozens of buttons to perform weak piss attacks with huge bloated graphical effects and over the top animations instead of just a simple handful of class defining abilities and various cooldowns/emergency abilities. all the buffs are weak and boring, tons of decimals and single percentage type shit that doesn't fucking matter yet you still have to do it just because it's there.

    i fucking hate how busy this game is, the tedium of its controls and the constant "jump through the hoop or fucking kill your entire raid retard"

    i think that's it. the rest of the game is kinda cool but unplayable at a top level if you aren't some spastic on amphetamines

      That's why raid leaders exist to wrangle the tards to a clear. Unfortunately, the tards can always vote out the raid leader and serious groups with open arms are becoming increasingly rare

          Game is a revolving door of vets leaving and newer players with hardly any action-game experience coming in who don't know how to always be hitting their gcd at all times.

            The community is oddly elitist, throwing hissy fits about theoretical numbers. I haven't gotten to EW yet but I'm starting to get tired of people screaming about parses.

      NN drama almost never results in bans, even reports about stuff being said on there. I've been a mentor for several years and have witnessed many things. A guy even got away with kicking 10 random people each day for about a year before stopping, and I can only assume his warning was other stuff and got scared.

      The only time I'm 100% certain someone got a ban for saying shit in NN was when my redneck friend went apeshit and rambled about gunning down californians if the crossed the rockies, then bragged about installing a dozen ovens in his basement to "be ready for all those hollywood garden gnome motherfuckers". He was issued a 20 day within 4 hours and it resolved as a perma.

      RIP bro
