    It's always fun coming back to FFXIV and relaxing while playing. Hopefully I'll stick around longer than a month or two this time, considering I have so much content I need to chew through since the release of HW. Palace of the Dead is great for alt leveling, that's for sure. I kind of wish the other methods of level were buffed in some way though. The challenge log I'm sure could be improved to do that, but if I'm not doing Palace of the Dead or Levequests, kind of feels like a drag.

    Dungeons are great but also slow-ish, hunting logs are also extremely slow however fun to see all the zones and travel them. And PVP isn't until 50, and that doesn't give EXP AFAIK -- so there goes that as well.

    Exactly. Ariyala's toolkit places ~10 point stat weight difference between the absolute best and the absolute worst race for even tanks (who benefit from having 2 different main stats that effect DPS rather than just one). There is bigger variance in raid accessories of the same item level.


    Also, we just started doing A11S last week, what a fun fight. Well maybe not if you're a black mage, but still. Looking forward to giving A12S a try soon.

    Just two members left and I'll have my squadron members assembled, then it's just matter of sorting classes and getting them all leveled up.

    Nah it's a store item. The exchange in Mor Dhona is for the primal/first coil stuff sadly.

    Yeah of course it made sense for it to be a 1 hander back then because first Coil and the EX 2.1 primals but now tbh it makes no sense. I'm not saying scrap the 1h just mail a 2 hander to players as well imo.

    I can't wait until the next POTD floors go live. From what I recall 51-100 are going to be the next step of 'story floors' and then 101-200 are meant to be the 'difficult' floors.

    It'll be interesting to see just how much coordination will be required for the latter floors and if they're genuinely difficult to not.

    I hope there's going to be a bunch of new, exclusive rewards to purchase/hunt down. I've already snagged the floating head mount and it won't be long until I get the two minions.

    I'm guessing different unearthed treasure, or whatever it's called in english. It's noted with G1 in Japanese so I'm just assuming there will be different tiers of treasures to find, all the maps are noted by G# for example. Not to also mention the ID box looks like it'll put more than one object on the list.

    Yeah, the current floors give bronze loot bags, and the NPC even already says that deeper floors will have better loot bags. I expect 51-100 to have silver and 101-200 gold, or something.

    I've been on a tear in POTD the past week, mainly because FC folks wanted to get decent weapons for alt jobs, plus I had a friend return to the game after a couple months away for Legion and he just got the 210 anima done, so he was a ways behind until last night, when he and a couple others got nice new 235 weapons.

    Compared to my earlier adventures in POTD, when it was just one friend along with me (mostly as a dps/healer tandem), running POTD with 3-4 people makes it 100% faceroll. We just cleared last night with all 4 of us being NIN. The only annoying part was that I couldn't convince the others to dye their gear red, blue, or orange (I had purple covered), so no TMNT reference from us. What a shame.

    I'm wondering how we'll get the 255 weapons from there. I'm guessing that we'll be able to start at floor 51 and in doing so, instead of it being aetherpool rating, we have something like "super aetherpool" or whatever. Basically a new rating system of sorts.

    Now I need to decide between being tall or being fucking tall and this naming convention will, once again, be fun times


    Okay, thanks.
    Even the shortest Roes tower over everyone except the tallest highlanders, elezen, and male Au'ra. As to why there's such a large range of height available compared to others, I'm not certain, but even setting height mid scale on femroe will have you looking down at most all of the in-game population (or them asking you how the weather for tomorrow looks).

    Exactly this, regarding the racial differences. The only racial that makes even a remote difference at max level is piety for BLM, and it's a bit of a fringe case. For the "proper" opening sequence on BLM, a minimum of 264 piety is required. Only 3 different subraces meet that requirement: Dunesfolk Lalafel, Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te, and...well crap, I forget the last one. Even the lowest piety races can meet that requirement with a single grade 4 piety meld. Furthermore, this particular case only applies at level 60; numbers could change where by level 70, this fringe case is rendered completely irrelevant.

    Aha. Thought it was one of the Au'ra but almost said Xaen, but they're the ones that match highlanders on STR (but not SXY ).

    Well Botanist and Alchemist are 60, just fisher and goldsmith for none combat to go. May actually get all 60's soon but man is Paladin the most boring MMORPG class i have played since a few guild wars 2 classes back in the day.

    PLD gets way more fun to play starting at 50. Prior to that, yeah, it's pretty zzz worthy. I still wish it had a proper damage dealing AoE equivalent to Overpower and/or Unleash.

    Unrelated note, lore book shipped today! I'm NA, and I went with standard shipping, so here's hoping it's in my hands this time next week.

    I usually queue trial roulette as healer so it may feel less frustrating due to being able to mitigate people messing up. Part of the fun as healer is challenging yourself to deal with these player mistakes. Of course, only to certain extent.

    Decide to give into my recent urge to race change.



    Who wants to take bets on how long before I race change back to Au Ra? :'D
