    I feel like I should just give up soon, not really getting anywhere.. at least not before expansion.

    After many months, managed to get raid-group together, and after one week.. well, we again lost some people.

    Yeah, friends of mine are also riding the "unreliable raid member having to search for replacement" train. Sucks.

    I think you can grind Maelstorm in about 2 days to Lieutenant.

    But as a fellow Immortal Flame, I can't stand losing these front lines because noone wants to kill ice, just people.

    Dont give up!! It happened to me all throughout 3.1 and 3.2 but through many many hardships I ended creating the best static I could have ever hoped for. 8 reliable and friendly people, always on time who have now learned each others strengths and weaknesses. The people that stick through the statics hardships are those who are more worth it in the end and little by little you ll find a full group of such individuals

    Just wonder if it's some general lack of interest in raiding seeing how Heavensward is pretty much over, and people go on break until closer to Stormblood release.

    Possibly. Its 4 months left? chasing the gear kind of loses its luster and most will probably just do it unsyched at lvl.70 for completionists sake. Most folks seem to be looking forwards to SB and getting ready for it.

    Talk to the housing merchant in any of the wards to get standard/basic items.

    Well on a whim i joined a Zurvan Ex pf run and we one shot with everyone in 258 or lower gear. That was insanely easy. I can only imagine the horror stories are from people that STILL dont know "purple eye means look the hell away".

    Some don't know, some don't care. See it all the time in POTD when multiple Pots get pulled and some dippus gets spiked off the map.

    From my experience in random groups they don't get pulled but added, which comes from the "uh skip as much as possible"-scenarios. Then 2-3 pots caboom

    so does anyone have an easy way to use ground targeted spells on a ps4 controller? The cursor just moves slow even after giving it max speed under settings. I'd rather just cast it under a person If I have them targeted and if not targeted have the cursor appear.

    The biggest issue I've had with the White Mage is that a lot of its's skills seem very... Unnessacary. They're overloaded with powerful single target heals for the most part. While there is certainly a need for those type of skills, they do tend to feel a bit generic at times. They could really do with diversifying into some other area.

    If you want something more complex you can always try the Scholar. Between managing your pet, throwing out heals, and DPSing there's a lot thats going on at any one time. Personally, I thought the Astrologan was a little bit too gimicky with the card buffs. Sure they're nice little additions, but for randomised buffs to be the entire focus of a healing class? No thank you.

    I've just had a group that's done exactly this - And stood on a lure trap just to make extra sure. I've even gone as far as to have a macro for the Witching Pomander for when it inevitably happens.

    How are they overloaded on single target heals? Tetra, cure 1/2 and benediction. That's one more than Ast.

    They have Regen too, it has a huge 1050 potency over it's duration. I'd count that as a single target heal too, given how it's single target, a heal, and requires you choose between using the recast timer on Regen or something else. I know not everyone will agree with that opinion however .

    But combining their 4 Single target heals, along with Presence of Mind and Divine Seal just gives them the feeling of being overwhelmingly about their numbers. Not that there's anything wrong with that from a design point of view, but playing one feels more like choosing the right size hammer rather than choosing the right tool for the job. Hence why I think adding some diversity in there, while still keeping the Job approachable, would be a good idea moving into Stormblood.

    Counting regen it still only one more than AST. How exactly would you diversify WHM then? They're suppose be the 'pure' healer class.

    Er...WHM is fine healing wise, I'd say. It may not fit the "meta", but said meta is completely unnecessary for clearing content at this point.

    That said, it's the only healer I ever really play. I like the toolkit it provides with it's CC and AoE (both damage and healing). Never really got my mind wrapped around SCH (only got it via leveling SMN). I suppose I could play AST as well...cards are yummy (when you get the right ones).

    Healed A9S earlier as AST, 2 WAR's and 2 DRG's in group.

    Pulled Spire from deck and had many friends wanting that card for TP, we didn't have BRD/MCH on that run.
