    why is it that ffxiv, one of the most casual non competitive games in the market, have the most toxic community
    whereas games like tekken barely have any social parasites in them

      Unironically too many white men. Tekken is a hood game full of Black folk who just want to play and have a good time. Its whites who get hyper competitive over nothing.

      > no one touched it because you needed BiS to acquire said raid gear :^)
      Not true. It's because it was on Criterion SAVAGE which is in some awys harder than Raid Savage, AND you needed a Tome Weapon AND you needed to clear P11S in order to augment it and only THEN you would be able to get your shiny tome weapon.

      What I'm suggesting is adding unique armor drops to regular Criterion after every boss.

      Criterion needs heavy tweaking.

          There are fun and unfun ways to create difficulty and you can tell the difference if you compare Ultimates to Criterion Savage.
          Criterion Normal is great fun but none of the changes in savage mode (except for the higher mob damage) make it more fun, in fact they mostly make it worse.

          The issue is not how obvious it is, you can always find the lalafell bots clipping out of bounds easily enough if you're looking. The issue is that they'll get more numbers faster than you can punish them anyway, and preventive measures are likely to trigger false positives.

        Probably a stealth nerf through potency/mana shenanigans - medica II is currently better for single target healing than cure 2.

        >Temperance changes into another action under unknown status

        Might be a dps mode- a lot of the healer design in xiv is trade offs between damage and healing (except for SGE)

        I really hope SGE get a button that change an addergalls into an addersting.
        Just to have some way to throw away extra addersgalls that isn't just useless overhealing.
        Extra bonus points if it recover MP too.

            SGE really needs it to be honest.
            I've jumped on it after EW release and honestly it's the one thing the job is missing, some way to throw away extra addersgall, especially when there's no healing required but you NEED to use your addersgall to stay MP positive.
            So right now SGE is forced to use druochole even when nobody needs the HP.

            Meanwhile SCH doesn't have this problem at all since they can just throw way extra Aetherflow with energy drain (though we all know that SCH players just use the energy drain for extra DPS instead).

            The button I want for SGE wouldn't really be extra DPS, but just another way to generate addersting outside of shielding.

                Having them as dps neutral gcds is far more comfy. It’s a lot of clicking to weave an ogcd heal without losing uptime.

      My final cope-hope is that each tank's basic 1-2-3 either gets reverted to the aggro combo animations like Skull Sunder and Butcher's Block, or we get a new 1-2-3. The shitty animations strips a lot of enjoyment from me surprisingly. I noticed playing tanks was more fun when I wasn't looking at Souleater's awful little spinny jump.

      He's been going batshit again after all the Square Enix restructuring news the past week, trying to sell it all as fuel for his copiums. Like Yoshida getting fired and XIV going into maintenance and CBU2 (now CS2) with ex-Luminous devs making FF XVII.

      It's funny though. FFXIV threads he mostly avoid. I used to think the "Pablo" figure was Barry seething and trying to derail XIV threads to get them banned in the leadup to expacs but I'm not sure. You never see his true triggered form and posting style in XIV threads.
      So XIV threads are the only threads on Ganker where you can actually talk about FF or SE as a whole without getting bothered by him.

        Yeah it's been a long time since there's been a legitimate Bazztek sighting in FFXIV threads, I think years actually. I think around the time a Jojo poster in /ffg/ told him to kill himself for trying to use The Last Remnant's sales figures as an argument point against FF16. There's been one or two copycats and parrots that make semi-regular appearances but the guy himself I haven't seen in a very long time. Trying to post the black woman in FF7 Rebirth or dumping SE sales figures doesn't a Bazztek make, it also requires the unhinged devotion to talking about his own off-topic points and getting sidetracked and starting flame wars if you bring up any of his past behavior.

    I'm gonna make the grand and very brave prediction that most of the Job Changes will be visual or QoL

    From what the other anon posted, it seems the majority of the changes are focused on merging buttons/making buttons turn into other buttons for the sake fo reducing buttonbloat and adding upgrades for existing attacks.
    There's probably only gonna be like, one or two new buttons for each Job, they'rwe gonna feel very similiar to Endwalker.

      I just wish it was possible to get BiS for all your jobs instead of having to pick two or three and forsake the others.

      I think SE should implement the following system:
      When you kill a boss, instead of dropping coffers it drops gear permits for specific gear slots. You can bring a gear permit to a merchant who will exchange it for the corresponding slot's item. When you exchange a gear permit for the first time, the merchant will subsequently allow you to buy any of the items of this slot for any other job in exchange for materials found exclusively outside the raid. You can still obtain and exchange a gear permit afterwards to get a free item without having to gather all the materials.

      Imho this would incentivize people to do stuff other than raidlog, get more people into other types of content if you lock the materials behind them, and also make crafting jobs more relevant if you make them craft some of the materials.

        Except you can do any Savage raid with just the current crafted gear.

    FFXIV is a game that clearly WANTS gear to be at least somewhat important - materia slots, overmelding, crafting and substats are the proof of that, not to mention how slow it is to gear up even if you do your raids every week.

        I don't think gearing needs to be interesting, just do more content specific stuff like Eureka/Bozja gear. Stat-wise they've got it solidifed with crafterd/tome/raid gear with intermediates obtainable elsewhere. The problem IMO, is just that it takes forever if you want to play multiple jobs which at this point in the game's lifecycle many people are doing. There's zero reason EW raids were locked as long as they were with the extended patch cycle and maybe provide alternatives/faster ways of gearing if you've already gotten a piece from that floor.

        It's funny that 'content islands' cut off from the rest of the world are hated in every other MMORPG EXCEPT for FFXIV because they're the only places where RPG elements actually matter.

          This is because XIV is so boring and basic that literally anything gets praised. XIV is the only game I've seen where people endorse removing whole mechanics because 1% of players didn't enjoy it.

          Content islands in XIV aren't totally fricking useless after their release so it's not a complete waste of time. Deep Dungeons, Field Duties, Ishgard/Diadem are all useful for leveling and/or acquiring exclusive rewards.

        Haste was fun when your skills were on timers, so getting a 6th or even 7th FC felt really good. Now everything is on a stack system so haste is pointless unless all you care about is your 123 being faster.

      I don't think gearing needs to be interesting, just do more content specific stuff like Eureka/Bozja gear. Stat-wise they've got it solidifed with crafterd/tome/raid gear with intermediates obtainable elsewhere. The problem IMO, is just that it takes forever if you want to play multiple jobs which at this point in the game's lifecycle many people are doing. There's zero reason EW raids were locked as long as they were with the extended patch cycle and maybe provide alternatives/faster ways of gearing if you've already gotten a piece from that floor.

      And they never will because they removed all multiplayer mechanics between jobs, attributes and stats. Literally what the frick can they put in gear that doesn't already exist?

    Or you buy a tome chestpiece and now every tome chestpiece costs 1/2 the amount of tomes, but a savage raid chestpiece will still cost the full amount of books until you upgrade said tome chestpiece to augmented, now the savage chestpiece costs half the amount of books

        Not true. It's because it was on Criterion SAVAGE which is in some awys harder than Raid Savage, AND you needed a Tome Weapon AND you needed to clear P11S in order to augment it and only THEN you would be able to get your shiny tome weapon.

        What I'm suggesting is adding unique armor drops to regular Criterion after every boss.

            Not really, XIV raiders have inflated egos because most need gear to finish a tier and when a fight asks them to simply not die they sperg out. Look at how much the body check meme was parroted in EW.

    I don't mind people being able to gear up faster.
    But I also figure it's because they think raiding will die out quicker if everyone can get all their gear really fast and on alts as well, and they're probably not wrong.
    Also I feel like XIV is one of the few games where you can genuinely tackle "high-end" raiding content (sans Ultimates, I guess) with day 1 crafted gear you can get on the marketboard or make yourself. I feel that's pretty generous and frictionless, as far as gearing's in MMOs is concerned. (Infinite treadmill et all.)

    An interesting idea i've seen floated about on how to make new Jobs is to make 'Job Variants', basically taking a Job's aesthetics and weapon but putting them in a different role.
    For example, Dragoon could have Dragon Tamer as a Variant Job that is a phys ranged DPs with a dragon combat pet like in FFXI
    Or Paladin could have a variant called Crusader that is a melee DPS

    And so on, and so forth.

      They could do what they did with SMN/SCH and add a different role counterpart for the same job. It can reuse a good chunk of the same ability effects, with a few custom ones to fit the occasion.

        rotations are so fricking boring, priority-based gameplay is much more fun and engaging while also letting you recover better from downtime and depend less on the rest of the party, as well as allowing more freedom in how you want to build your gear (as someone already mentioned, we could choose between several specs in stormblood and it was awesome that you could do so)
        rotations would never really allow that much freedom

              I guess I am slow because I do play samurai. I don't see one extra ogcd press (that you would already be pressing since it's the same cost) will fix samurai. It'll be a nice little number boost though.

    there's a curious pattern here where some of the things a certain eceleb streamer guy praised about xiv also coincidentally gets maligned. raids being quick to access and not dragging on or requiring you to kill packs of trash just to get to the actual boss, there being the housing shit with clubs and other social gatherings
    i wouldn't be surprised if i soon see a narrative about how buffs being maintained through death and cooldowns resetting on a wipe makes xiv shit and baby tier and casuals ruined it

          No one here cares but SOD is really interesting because its like the inverse of FFXIV conventional wisdom

          SOD community wants easy raids and easy classes and complains endlessly until the devs nerf everything into baby mode. Basically the complete opposite of FFXIV

          They are also x50 more gatekeepy, the game is so easy yet you need perfect logs for a raid with few mechanics
