    going to have to admit that i'm really starting to get perturbed that i have to wait for dungeon finder groups to continue the story....

    ....it's really starting to be a downer having to wait 30-40 mins just to get shit done.

    You rolled DPS - It's the same in any MMO with a Dungeon Finder - I'd suggest joining the queue and then leveling a Gathering/Crafting Profession while you wait. Makes the time go by faster.

    Eh, yeah it kinda sucks, but it does force you to do something else. I used the time in queue for the story dungeons to get other classes leveled to 15. By the time I hit 50 with my Brd and got my Relic, I have all combat classes to at least 15, and unlocked Paladin. I love the fact that you can queue as one class then switch and go about your business. Just don't do leves while in queue, if it pops while you're still on duty for a leve...you can't abandon, or switch jobs until the leve has been completed...sucks.

    Our first group shattered but we managed to pick up the pieces. I guess supergluing the pieces together didn't last very long, and it broke for good.

    There was a lot of yelling and raging, indeed. Only a few of us kept our calm (it's just a game, guys!) but the rage was probably warranted. Turn 5 is unfair.

    Yeah, we had this dicussion in /shout the other day in Thanalan. I guess I have some sympathy, but at a certain point people have to understand that being the 900,000,000th Dragoon in the Duty Finder queue is going to come with certain drawbacks.

    Every time I see people complain about Duty Finder, I have little to no sympathy for them seeing DPS has almost always had the longest queues due to being in abundance. Which is why (since I typically play dps) I make sure I have something to do while waiting. Bejeweled Blitz ftw!

    I'm having queues even as healer! They used to be instant, but so sometimes I have to wait for *gasp* 5-10mins! My main is still technically BLM, but I got bored of the queues and rolled a healer (should have rolled a tank :/ ). I intend to gear it enough that I can use it to farm tomes with fast queues.

    I am kind of concerned with this ongoing drama I have had with square CS.. Im going on like weeks after phone drama after weeks of emailing to get one of my accounts back It's so bad I actually got a free copy of the game from the people I pre ordered the one I am having drama with. Its like a month nearly over a hacked account

    My Free Company has already discussed the issue with Turn 5 (we're still working on Turn 4 currently) and we've decided that we're still going to work on it, but because the encounter itself is bugged (several mechanics fire off too late or early insta-gibbing people) we're going to try to be casual about it since we don't feel like beating our heads against a wall that won't break.

    But yes I can already foretell I'm going to cry once again about her when I'm done gearing this one up. Unless I get a nice FC by that time.
    Garuda is all about the tank honestly. Main tank positioning, and the off tank picking up the sisters. Thats all there is to the fight, i honestly rate Ifrit as harder.

    Hmmmm any placement ideas for an upcoming Warrior tank for her? Please no "just video it" responses..I find the videos often get me mixed up in the actual fight.

    Sorry, i really don't remember the positioning for Garuda as i just follow the tank.

    But since its all about positioning only, i guess the video will be very useful as it tells you exactly where to tank at.

    Either that or you go be the off tank, and just tank the sisters add which is quite easy.

    LOL i mean i do well with reading strats or being told what to do..As well as figuring it out myself....

    But the videos frankly just mix me up....

    Tank her facing away from raid where she spawns, dodge slipstream (its a long cast) and thats about it for phase 1.

    When she ults and P2 starts, tank her in the corner wedged up against the green zones. Eventually she will disappear and spawn 2 adds, grab the one that has a red beam linking her to garuda. After both adds are dead it will say something like "The wind begins to churn" and you need to move her clockwise along the edge of the arena slowly to avoid green areas, while kiting the plumes. Then run to the center when the Satin plume is dead and the green areas disappear- boom you are done.

    I think Healer queues are getting longer cause people are rolling them just to get faster queues to farm philosophy tomes.

    My FC (~ 40 level 50s) had maybe 4 healers a couple weeks ago. Now there are 16 who "can" heal. I've also noticed as a tank an increase in absolutely terrible healers, luckily my wife always goes with me and she is a good/geared healer and can solo heal if necessary.

    This of course is anecdotal, but it makes sense with as easy as it is to reroll that people would level another heal class to 50 for farming.

    It also seems that Mon/Tue is fucking terrible for running AK, even with a full group you are waiting 20-30 minutes for an instance to pop. So anyone who thinks of queing for that particular instance on Mon/Tue regardless of class I wouldnt recommend it.

    Dungeons as part of the main story does suck imo as well. But tbf you don't have to wait in the dungeon finder you could form a group in the zone, join a linkshell or FC and find people. Higher level players level scales down to them with you but they still get xp for their level so running lower level dungeons isnt bad XP at all.

    What i'm wondering about is WHMs. You used to see them everywhere, and the survey data that square showed the majority of healers are WHMs, but I only see them in about one in every four groups i run with.

    (yes, i'm frustrated because i keep losing garuda's book to the second SCH every time. its been four days of grinding and all i got out of it was 200 myth tomes and a broken heart.)

    I think as a Tank you're more prone to seeing the bad healers and the same could be said as a healer...I've dealt with some pretty awful tanks.

    Like I said earlier in this thread, the standard for tanks seems to be so low that people will fall all over themselves to praise you if you do even halfway-decent at it.

    it's all good. one of my FC tanks happened to be on, and helped me finish the story. now i'm working on the quest chain for my relic. up to AK at this point.

    i don't play nearly as often as my FC members though, and i'm only really on early early morning. i don't think any of the 50's really get on until around 10 - 12, when i'm already at work.

    i guess i could get on after job, but i'm just so tired by the time i get home, i just cook and eat dinner, sit down to watch a little tv, then hit the pillow.
