    Even lighthouse only requires 335 and drops 360 gear.

    If you've got 300k-ish gil kicking around you should buy a 380 weapon from the market board, that will help your item level a lot.

    I easily have that much, ill look into it. I got about 1mil just from leveling and never spending anything as i never felt the need to buy something, except occasional piece for fashion report lol. This game is basically a dress up game for at times. Wish getting a house wasn't impossible, id spend all my time doing cosmetic stuff.

    I'm sitting at about 6M gil after my level 60-70 push. It's probably too late now, but you can actually sell most of the quest rewards you get. On average I think I sold gear for 50-100k each. It did make leveling a little slower since I wasn't quite appropriately geared (relying on story dungeon drops, which can't be sold on the AH) but I think it was worth it.

    Of course, I don't know if 6M is a lot in this game but from what I understand a house costs like ~2-3M?

    Depends on the house size, which server it's on and how long it's been up for sale, but small plots can go for ~3-4 million. But that's not really saying much, as there are items up for sale on the MB for at least that much, or more. 6 million really isn't that much, but it's enough to be comfortable. With that much I'm not able to (or maybe just barely able) to purchase a full set of max ilevel gear and slot materia into it. I've never felt the need to do that because rewards were always pretty easy to earn, but as I'm leveling up an alt character through Stormblood and am just now getting into the Lochs, the ilevel gaps that pop up throughout the MSQ progression are on my mind and being able to buy the max level gear would be fantastic, but that character only has ~1 mil.

    I literally have not sold anything i got during leveling from 50-70, they are all setting in storage. I might dump some items to earn some cash. Just to play around with stuff.

    An aside, I am really thinking i want to stay super casual in this game. Probably going to boost another job because of the sale just because of the sale and 17.50 is really inconsequential for me. I love my Bard but thinking of picking up a melee dps (not lancer) or healer. I was thinking of waiting for tank until Gunbreaker as i like the aesthetics and i don't really care about overall viability. Kind of been leaning somewhere between Samurai\Ninja\Astrologian. Anyone got a major reason for or against one of those? I know it's hard to compare 2 melee and a healer, but think of it from a casual aesthetic focused player. I might do random dungeons and other things i matchmake, don't plan to anything more organized than that.

    One more level for PLD and thats all 1820 levels or whatever done. I've been bored playing PLD i've actually started pvp'ing again to escape it and boy thats not the pvp of Heavensward. It feels like healers are way more important, time to kill is way down and everything moves faster to the point matches now seem overly long with a timer meant for the old style where a tank could stay up against 8 dps forever with a pocket WHM.

    FYI if you get into crafting they added a 'desynth system' so whatever class can repair an item -if you check most have a class icon like an anvil or frying pan on the item info window somewhere- you can level up a desynth to effectively disenchant items into base components or something entirely new. The catch is you have enough levels to really only get desynth high in two classes. I took Culinarian and Blacksmithing for the weapon and cooking mats but later you can level this just crafting stuff and breaking it down again then selling the excess on the market to pay for new stuff. At low level its kind of boring but at max it sure is nice to break down dungeon weapons into hard to get ores or demimateria at the touch of a button.

    Ill look into that. I have been just working on unlocking features that i have not yet unlocked (hunts etc). I have barely touched professions.

    At this point with an expansion winding down best to save it when you are bored. Theres a lot of stuff like Chocobo racing and breeding, triple triad, desynthing, big fishing and so on that even legacy players i know have not 'got around to yet'.

    Professions are best done with leves. If you are at your 100 cap, i would suggest burning through them before the expansion to allow them to build back up.

    desynth has nothing to do with repairing, whoever told you that is wrong. If you wish to repair a piece of gear, the profession for that piece needs to be within 10 levels of it. so for shadowbringers, to repair your max gear you will need lvl 70 crafters. To meld them, lvl 80 crafters.

    Hunts can be funish but typically are done in waves with the community. If hunts arent active, you're shit out of luck for the time being.

    Leveling up your grand company squad can also be useful to give another option for leveling alts.

    Yeah it's a bloody awesome little touch among many they do in the world. He appears after you clear Alphascape for those who don't know.

    That's why I love the game. Just those small details that put a smile on my face.

    I found it funny they were just sitting there watching the lalafell stirring the bowl and every once in a while alpha would look at me an open his beak like he was smiling at me.

    Apparently the dev team - behind Yoshida's back and without him telling them to or ever suggesting they do it - spent their free time working on making over 540 headpieces compatible with the new races when the original plan was the only things they could wear would have been things that replace the head model entirely.

    This is what it's like to have passionate developers working on the game, I love this team so much.

    They also did say flat out that Viera and Hrothgar gender locks were a matter of time, money and manpower, they could do either or but not both. They said there's a chance we might see the other genders in-game eventually because NPC models don't need as much time or effort, but also said to not get our hopes up of getting them playable.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they're added with the launch of 6.0. It isn't a guarantee, though there's a decent chance that it is on their to do list.

    The fact the man sat there and /saluted the team for basically giving it their all just shows what an amazing dev team this game has compared to other games.

    Just makes me proud to be part of a community like this and throwing my money at devs that actually want to make a product for the players. Just wish companies like Bethesda, EA and Blizzard had the same mindset towards its fans these days.

    Was there any work involved other than rescaling existing models? I mean all the races in FFXIV are essentially different sized humans, it shouldn't be too hard to fit gear.

    Finally got PLD to lvl.70 and have all the jobs capped! 1870 levels in total, and in two months i'll have over 200 more. But for now my completionist OCD is sated.
