Like apparantly there's hunts too that may help, but now I get to finish off my immortal flame rankings first. Obviously I don't have the Gil to just buy crap off the market board

    Also raiding path for me is out since I can really only guarantee 1hr runs at a time due to RL stuff. I've thoroughly enjoyed coming g back to this game though, super fun. Bit overwhelming once I got max level though. Priority advice?
    This is one area where the game shines, IMO. You have a lot of options. Dungeons, raiding, POTD, Clan/Elite Hunts...

    My recommendation is start working on capping Scripture Tomestones every week. Easiest methods, IMO, are spamming 51+ POTD and doing Elite Hunts, A/S-Ranks. You can also use the Centurio Seals from Clan/Elite Hunts to get some 200 gear that'll get you started.

    If you can stand the grind, Aetherochemical Research Facility is a good way to farm Lore Tomestones, as a filler between 200 and the 260 Scrip will get you. Make sure to advance your MSQ to 3.4, then you can unlock Xelphatol, which is a good dungeon to grind once you hit the 210 ilvl required for it, should you prefer that method for weekly Scripture cap.

    As for raids, I couldn't tell you. I don't touch them, personally. Grinding POTD will also let you get the upgraded Kinna weapon pretty easily, once you build your Aether up and get a floor 100 clear under your belt.

    Wow, thanks guys. although didn't mean to start an argument

    Looks like start on lore and scripture first to at least get a better chest and legs, and open up hunt

    PoTD is ridiculously fun so grinding that isn't bad actually. Then to work on my SCH since I play both equally...

    Alternatively, if you know crafters, just have them make you a full set of 250, and then get the Sophia Ex (Sophia is ridiculously easy) weapon assuming it's an upgrade off of the 250.

    FANFEST SOON! So here is the obligatory Fanfest hype train. Or the one I found in Google Images at least.

    Item code for the redeemable stuff is invalid. Dafuq. Should be redeemable now.

    Honestly Sophia EX was way undertuned. Hope Zurvan in 3.5 isn't the same.

    I use POTD for everything. Leveling, making Gil, getting the weapons, capping Scrip, farming Lore...those 51+ clears will stack Aether really fast, even if you only do 2-3 runs a day you should have your Kinna and then some within 5-7 days, assuming you get the 100 clear. If you're unsure about getting clears on the lower floors, 80+, run as a SCH. A healer with half a brain and good Aether makes a world of difference.

    As for spending Lore/Scrip, my strategy would be to save Scrip for the left-side pieces and go ahead and burn Lore on the right-side pieces. POTD doesn't care how you're geared(and incurs no gear damage, another plus)so you can afford to take your time on putting it all together.

    Turns out they put down the wrong date for the codes.

    Said 23rd initially. So in case anyone like me was wondering it's tomorrow 12 AM PDT.

    DAWN OF THE FINAL DAY: RDM Tomorrow!

    Prediction: fencing dandy frontiersman that uses things like enfire to buff and behave like a WoW shaman meets Bravely Defaults spell crafter system. e.g select fire then some other mudra style option to remix it.

    Sat on 11 with my RDM right now. For how archaic it is Red Mage actually plays quite well. Just like I remember it.

    Hate it when these things happen during night - trying to set-up laptop for FanFest watching and information collecting for Free Company for 3 AM.

    And my internet just keeps lagging and disconnecting - sadly that is pretty much it's normal state every night. Thankfully at least EU FanFest is going to be during day time.

    I really hope they keep the same aesthetic. The whole rapier stabbing french musketeer meets american colonial pioneer always had a cool kind of timeless look, you would see similar things in franchises as tonally different as Fable and Warhammer and it just works but you never really see a good rapier user class in mmorpgs anymore. greatweapons and sword and board took over popularity in design which is a shame.

    Still i thought it was tomorrow night, check the cleeng site and get a "welcome back, your show starts in 22 minutes message", almost missed the show!

    so the code is later right? should be 8am uk time i 'think' reading the post.

    Tried to force myself to go to sleep around 8 PM so I could sleep ~6 hours before FanFest starts, kept waking every two hours instead - not sure if those small naps were worth it.

    Hopefully the reveals will be worth it, any ideas if there's some sort of "protection" on Cleeng preventing from recording the stream?

    At least cat seemed extremely pissed since I woke up before he had chance to wake me up.

    Not 100% but i heard some folks upset they couldnt watch a pirate stream "because of harsher protection this time" but god knows what it is.

    3 minutes to go!

    Hmm, I see - was just wondering if I could record some video from interesting parts, like for example them showing new zone(s) - instead of going slideshow.

    Who's betting Cleeng fucked up again and the streamed is locked for the first minute or two?

    I swear though if 720P causes it to freeze again I'll be irritated.

    All i have is a "will begin momentarily" 320p or lover image and the bottom bar keeps turning into streaming zebra lines.
