      they kept XI going with something like 1/10,000th the playerbase with new expansions for awhile, and the updates had actual experimental content the playerbase positively reacted to on occasion as opposed to the same treadmill ladder we get in XIV with every update

      The quality of the game could only go up if a large chunk of the ERP Limsa idle squad were to die or unsubscribe

      the best thing that could happen to this game is if they kill XivLauncher, mare, mods, splatoon, and argus. XivAlexander can stay, but the rest goes. Game was unironically better before party finder and housing too. Now everyone is sequestered away in their hidey holes playing the single player game with a monthly subscription, shits fricking embarrassing

        These people are permasubbed regardless of the game quality. Their sub money is paying for the graphics update, so I'd rather they not unsubscribe and leave the game to only raiders and grinders.

          ACtually March is a pretty good estimate for the Benchmark trailer. They typically come out roughly 4 months before the game release.

          Assuming a July/August release for the game would mean March/April for benchmark is very likely.

          Endwalker benchmark came out on July 9th when the original release date is scheduled for mid November and ended up being December.

    Red Mage in FFXIV fricking sucks. His heals are garbage. He has no support spells. He's suppose to be a jack of all trades but he's just another dumb unga bunga DPS with a revival. Red Mage in FF 1 had more spell variety.

          I do too. It's why I always end up making a paladin when I'm moronic enough to start playing WoW again.

          True jack of all trades are impossible to balance properly. Ideally, a team of red mages / paladins / whatever should be about as successful as a team of specialized classes. In reality, the best you can hope for is everyone of the all-rounder classes being specialized towards one field, like healing or DPS, and still being worse than any dedicated class, while being completely unable to do any of the other roles cuz they had to specialize to be somewhat useful.

          Their only real value in an MMO is catering to indecisive people.

            and it's not like red mage doesn't reprise its usual repertoire of magic either, in FF1 and FF3 they stop at the 3 tiers of spells (FF1 red mage needs red wizard to access blizzaga and thundaga) and most of what you're going to be casting of white magic is going to be poisona, esuna, blink and cure/cura anyways. if red mage ever gets a veresuna in FF14 then they're pretty well set for how they traditionally handle magic, it's already a pretty fair tradition break that they have flare and holy

            It's a problem that plagues video games in general. Versatility is useful if you don't know what to expect and you want to prepare for anything. That works best in a tabletop RPG where many of these classes are derived from (including the JoAT archetype) since players usually don't know whatever the DM has planned, and even if he's running a premade adventure the odds of players having actually read that adventure is pretty low (but when they have, they usually DO make a character specialized for that adventure).

            Video games on the other hand, and especially MMOs, tend to be more static in nature. Versatility might still work when the game is new and people don't know what to expect, but as time goes on people will start to learn the ins and outs of all the content and all of the "unpredictable" factors start to disappear. When you have perfect information of what you're up against, then there's always going to be a solution that's the most optimal towards that particular encounter, which means people will specialize for that encounter. This is how the Tank/Healer/DPS meta came about anyway because people playing Everquest realized that that was the most efficient team composition in the game even though it wasn't actually designed around that.

            Procedural generation could help mitigate this issue, but even then that's not a perfect solution since procgen usually have to operate according to some form of logic and within specific constraints, and once people figure that out then they will again start specializing towards those parameters. Done correctly this can still be better than completely static content, but procgen also comes with its own slew of issues that are beyond the scope of this argument.

      Red Mage has always traded damage and heal for flexibility. He has always done less damage than black mages, and worst healing than white mage, but he has them all. There's no reason not to reduce his damage, raise his healing, and give him support spells like in every other game. Min-max autists can just pick another class.

          It's support spells should change how you can approach playing through a raid tier fight.

          It's heal should act like the variant version, boosting the next gcd heal.
          Enchanted Reprise should give 4 seconds of 100% parry chance instead of being a self harm inducing gcd.
          I'd give it hastega as it's next expansion ultimate but instead of sks/sps that would have parser bots have a meltdown; it would give the party 10secs of instant casts/true north and peloton speed.

        red mage is pretty damn useful in 3 and 5 and definitely not unviable to go with permanently in four job fiesta, it just tapers off since they take "master of none" much more seriously when you're not actually stuck with that choice for the whole game

        it doesn't impact actual job design at all, it means burst has less incentive to be aligned
        which you would still want to be doing in tippy-top end stuff like ultimates anyways because they were designed around being bursted down
        note: raid buffs would probably include self-buffs like no mercy, otherwise everybody is just going to line up their self-buffs, whether incidentally (all of them have 2m timers, etc) or purposefully (stormblood/heavensward where everybody was lining up buffs on a 3m to 5m timer)

            If your personal buffs don't line up with the party's, you don't force them to line up unless there is a raidbuff or a specific phase in ultimate to burst down. Removing raidbuffs would allow for any personal buff/burst timing to coexist in savage/extreme, and in ultimate you would hold for alignment (as you already do).
            Given that so many jobs have raidbuffs, the 2 minute meta (or any other such shared timing) is a natural and good design for reducing the frustration of alignment that players used to complain about. But with raidbuffs removed, that's not a problem and jobs can diverge more from each other.

              i don't see any reason they would diverge and i don't even really know what is meant by "diverge" here since jobs largely behave as they always have in terms of divergence within a role which is general GCD flow or "playstyle" and some signature abilities a la vercure, passage of arms + holy spirit/holy circle and clemency, dark knight's TBN focus, dragoon's rigid and long skillchains, samurai's iaijutsu

              the best case i can think of would be bard which they're probably not going to ever let be the valuable skillmonkey it used to be because that would make it a shoo-in for parties, also like it used to be

                Job with a flat damage profile (BLM is already in that direction)

                Different jobs with a 45s, 60s, 80s, 90s, 120s, 180s, etc whatever rotational timing you like

                Plenty of people like DoTs. They suck in the current meta which is why they've been gradually removed but in a different meta with different design, a DoT job could be made viable and fun.

                Can you really blame them? The Musketeer guild is still in Limsa and patch 5.4(?) showed the Admiral using new animations for her attacks.

                Yeah the Merlwyb animations were the big sell, they don't normally add custom attack animations to ANYBODY unless they're planning on doing something with that. Fricking Ran'jit in 5.0 ended up being a long term teaser for Reaper

                Before anybody points to Regula van Hydrus or the GNB garlean guy with the Cloud sword stance they use, they use DRK animations in all other circumstances, including when walking

                Chemist was extremely far fetched. Given how the First has different names for common things I could see the mikitten just talking about being a boring Alchemist.

          they said it would have some kind of party support but would not have a res, which is entirely nebulous on what it means
          magick barrier and vercure are considered party support on red mage for reference, regardless of whether you're going to be using it or not, or summoner is going to lose its raise in dawntrail but will probably still have searing light so it technically has party support

                if anything i would suspect it of being a separation into "support casters" and "damage casters" similar to the shield/pure split for healers, with pictomancer/red mage as support and black mage/summoner as damage

                If they just add one more ranged phys they could do the same thing with them. BRD/DNC being more support focused and MCH/New Job being more damage focused

                It is already competitive with BLM in most content, because the average skill level is not that high. Go into a random current extreme party or even savage and you'll typically see a SMN doing more damage than a BLM while also having free movement and a rez. If you just look at p99 on fflogs then of course BLM is ahead, because it's designed with a high skill ceiling. You can clear any content with either job, and there are options for players of any skill level, which is good design. You don't need massive buffs to SMN while it's easy to play.

                I tend to agree, but I think the dividing line will be between "rez caster" (SMN/RDM) and "non-rez caster" (BLM/PCT) instead.

            Yes they do. Delirium gives 3 stacks that can be spent on free Bloodspiller/Quietus. Inner Release 3 stacks for Fell Cleave/Decimate that are guaranteed direct crits.

            There's no reason to prune those skills for the sake of a simpler burst when job satisfaction is high and they consider the job to be feature-complete and can only make additions a la Dragoon
            Continuation getting distilled to one button in Endwalker was some actual button pruning and you can undo it yourself by binding Gnashing Fang in three hotbar slots, for reference

            They're always going to prune because they're also going to add. If the continuation combo gets a finisher that's another GCD to fit into the No Mercy window, and Sonic Break is the prime candidate for pruning to make room.
            It's also the exact same thing they did with DRK.

                that isn't what a charge means in ziv's context and it's also completely pointless for gunbreaker and paladin, gunbreaker has so much shit to weave that making its continuation direct-crit guaranteed through a self-buff will get lost in the flying text and making confiteor's combo direct-crit through a buff is equally pointless when it also has goring blade, expiacion, circle of scorn and free holy spirits + sword oath to worry about. they have more going on than the one repetitive attack which is exactly why bloodspiller/quietus and fell cleave/decimate work that way

    Here's a long winded story.
    Back during Stormblood and the release of Eureka the players had to work with old school mmo rules. Meaning they had to grind for hours on end and could lose exp on death.
    There was this special mob that spawned in a high level area that gives a ton of exp on defeat. There are also elephant mobs that are 5 levels higher than the current level cap. These mobs had large aoe attacks that could kill anyone level 15 and under.
    People would watch the max level players spawn the special monster while doing nothing. I took the opportunity to nab some elephants and aim their aoe towards the people doing nothing. It was great and I felt no remorse

      I used to do this back when I was first going through Eureka. Would be farming to spawn the NM and there'd be an idiot or 2 just chilling nearby not helping, so I'd keep pulling the mobs towards them to attempt to kill them.
      Eventually they just started killing them instead of constantly moving around trying to dodge me.

    1. Trait upgrades for Fight or Flight and Circle of Scorn. Upgrades them to "new" abilities with different names, better animation, and potency / effect upgrades or changes. Fight or Flight becomes Crusade, increases your damage still but also now increases your auto attack and movement speed. Circle of Scorn just gets a new name and slight potency upgrade like Spirits Within did this expansion.

    2. Goring Blade is trait upgraded as well to a new ability. Still serves the same purpose as a 60s nuke in your buff window but gets some additional effects or mechanics attached to it to make it a little more interesting. Probably gets a holy name change with appropriate holy looking spell effect.

    3. Atonement 3 stack combo gets trait upgrade for all 3 attacks to be unique and increasing in potency.

    To be honest PLD does not have a lot of room to work with for new abilities and stuff. It is absolutely at button cap now so they would have to combine abilities or just trait upgrade existing ones to add to it.

      I literally cannot play MNK without having to stare at my hotbar constantly, becaues not only is the entire rotation basically just random procs, but you also have to manage self-buff and dot timers, and your buffs/dot fal off so fricking fast. It's constant neverending micromanagement. I hate everything about it.

              It didn't do that at all, it explained that other SMNs used high tech weapons but Sari realized that primals appear around times of civilizational collapse and lower tech tomes were superior for that reason. Hiding the information inside a hard drive that other people can't access helps nobody.

              In SMN's case its more that its eternally joined at the hip to SCH. Both jobs would be way better off if they just split them in two and let SCH start at 30 as its own thing, but that will never happen.

                Honestly I'd be more for having SMN start at 30 and having ACN turn into SCH at 30. Having more than one healer to start with would be good for the game despite it leaving BLM as the only low level caster.

    Remember us. Remember that we once lived… Also remember to watch out for that crazy guy Fandaniel. His pet bird caused the final days. I was there with my good friend Hythlodaeus and we ran into you because you got sent to the past by our good friend Elidibus. We went there to meet our good friend Hermes and his pet bird. Hermes's bird was capable of destroying entire planets because she had emotion energy, a concept so advanced only Hermes and an elephant knew it existed. Hermes was going to let the bird destroy our planet because he wanted to do an experiment. And then he was going to memory wipe all of us until Venat flew in on her magical dog and escaped with you. She then for some reason decided not to tell anyone about what happened and instead doomed us all to die, including our good friend Azem who fell into a Volcano while trying to find the source of the noise even though Venat knew all along because she put a magic microchip on Hermes’s bird. She then became Hydaelyn and sundered the world because a bunch of weak humans who die after 80 years were better equipped to deal with the threat than immortal gods who could create whatever they wanted at will. Except the only “human” that could actually stand up to Meteion was 9/14ths of our good friend Azem who also needed Hydaelyns blessing to survive along with my great-grandson Zenos Viator Galvus who had Hydaelyns blessing too, except his was reverse-engineered in a Garlean laboratory. And he was a good friend.

              It's not based on Kain, it's based on Cecil's DRK sprite. MRD at the time had all the life drain skills. It just looked close enough that they dyed it blue instead of black and called it DRG.

                You can have Peloton for all I care. A fun skill you can press every two minutes and lasts ten seconds is barely a blip of life inbetween endless Broil and living in constant horror of how they will frick up the job yet again beyond the boundry of what good men would call sensible come Dawntrail.

      I still need the GNB one from the front, but it looks good so far.
      MCH looks like a testing ground of how much clutter and different PBR they can use in the graphics update and it ends up looking like an overdesigned mess.

      Overall winners: DRG, GNB, PLD, WAR
      Good: RDM, SCH, AST, SGE, DNC
      More of the same: SMN, SAM, NIN, MNK, BRD

    So I'm reading the TOS because I've stumbled on some posts about people complaining about getting reported and whatnot.

    And dear god, what is with this game trying so hard to be a safe space? Is this a Japanese thing, something unique to SE or something else? Most of the stuff listed there is something that was considered business as usual in other MMOs: People arguing, swearing, having disagreements. According to this TOS you can also be penalized if you just happen to stumble across some pissy pricks on PF and they report you for "lethargic play" i.e they think you played like shit so you gotta be punished.

      You've got it the other way around. They aren't trying hard, they're trying easy. The GMs/etc for the game have always been extremely barebones, staff-wise. That means that canned responses and "frick it, click warning" are what they'll do in 90% of cases if several people report someone all at once, with zero context or investigation involved.

        Really? Is there a source for this? Because that'd explain a lot then.

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          There's no one source, it's something people have come to realize and accept over the years. You can see one direct example though, in the end-of-MSQ credits you know the part where it says "special task force"? And there's like three people there? That is the entire staff the game devotes to removing overt cheaters. It's also the reason why so much fairly obvious cheating goes under the radar, because unless a player reports you, they have no idea you're doing something. They've built a few bandaid systems into the game, like setting very low packet loss and latency tolerances for certain types of instanced content that auto-d/cs people that seem to be moving around too fast, or where they shouldn't be, all so they can stymie the behavior without having to get enough personnel to crack down on it for real.

          GMs handle the social shit of course, and there are more of them, but it's still a small enough number that every GM is probably known by name.

            Fair enough.

            All I can say is: god I miss old WoW. You had to go really out of your way to get into trouble with the GMs there. I even opened a ticket with a GM once for a guy that was literally griefing and the GM basically told me: "lol lmao".

        I'm not sure I understand your point. Back in Vanilla people did police each other, but it was more ostracizing problem players, who were ninja looters and chronic party ruiners.

        In FFXIV it's literally: "You said something vaguely non-polite, I report you" And chances are you are gonna get a warning. That's infantile, elementary school behavior.
