    You're assuming the program is actually reading what you have running and checking its files. It doesn't seem to do either of these or things like botting, big titty nude mods, and yes ACT, would be banning people left and right.

    Whatever Yoshi-P says about ACT it's still against TOS and if they were able to see it being used, they would be doing more banning.

    While it's probably true, keep in mind that the statement of a NPC could be proven as bullshit. Speculation on his part. It has happened before. So it's not a confirmation, just a possibility.

    It is extremely rare that I kick people because I hate doing that, esp with the wonky reinforcements in Ff-XIV.

    I only kick if you really hinder our ability to progress or if you are rude/offline.

    I'm not assuming anything, I just say it's technically possible.

    So, Eden was in FF8.

    The new main raid is called Eden.

    FF8 is finally getting a remaster...

    It might just be a coincidence, but we'll see soon enough.

    The Ascians lie to the beast tribes but they've never been unreliable narrators (at least on purpose) toward the Warrior of Light. In fact they're often the ones trotted out to do the big story drops toward the end of quest lines.

    I mean the more you look at Zodiark and Hydaelyn as Primals the more sense that it makes. The Echo was used as an excuse as to why the Warrior of Light was invulnerable to becoming tempered by other Primals, but it completely followers with the lore that you can't be tempered by multiple primals. And this follows with us encountering Hydaelyn right out of the gate and then being immune to everything else.

    The same is true of the Ascians, who also possess the Echo from Zodiark (And use it in a way that's far beyond what the Warrior of Light can accomplish at the moment). We pretend to have free will (Which would be used as an argument that we're NOT tempered by a Primal) but do we really? For the literal entirety of the storyline we're enacting Hydaelyn's desire. We've shaped the politics of Eorzea because the rest of the world leaders believe that we're doing the right thing just because we're following Hydaelyn.

    And when we seem to even SLIGHTLY wander off of the path of what she wants to do, she beams her directive immediately into our minds and we end up following her commands. She bestows us with her power, She's in contention with other Primals, She follows the patterns of other Primals identically. As does Zodiark. The only thing that sets the two of them apart is the apparent lack of potential to "summon" them in a traditional sense. But I think being the oldest (and perhaps the first) Primals sets them apart. While the likes of Ifrit or Garuda are single-mindedly working toward getting more followers, Zodiark and Hydaelyn are contending over the literal universe and different dimensions.

    We're hitting apex of the Zodiark storyline and I can't wait to see what craziness they pull out. I'm almost tempted to say we're going to just go full godslayer and eventually end up killing or sealing away both Zodiark and Hydaelyn.

    I don't think it is a matter of "can" but a matter of "want". DEVs are well aware of sites like FF-Logs and how much their savage raiding community depends on them for diagnostic purposes. I think they don't mind us looking at the numbers, as long as we don't use the data to diss people.

    Did the new Shadowbringers Launch Trailer contain any obvious scenes from the upcoming expansion's MSQ? I'm still a bit burned by Stormblood and it's Launch Trailer spoiling many major scenes from Stormblood MSQ.

    I hope so. They can't tell us they're primals and then not let us kill them. Killing primals is what we do.

    Trailer spoilers just in case

    I don't know that I buy the trailer reveal of Hydaelyn and Zodiark both being primals, especially with tension brewing between Elidibus and Solus already. I think Solus has been making a huge powerplay and is going to backstab Elidibus, use us to take out the "primals", and do what he's been feeding to Varis: make the Garlean master race Varis ranted about in 4.5 with Solus as an immortal god-emperor at the top of it all with no pesky Hydaelyn or Zodiark to stop him. The WoL assumes Elidibus' role as emmissary for Zodiark and works with Minifilia in the same role for Hydaelyn to defend them and keep the balance from here on and Garlemald continuing to be the True Final Boss(tm).

    The lore as we know it (which doesn't necessarily mean much) makes Hydaelyn and Zodiark out to be too cosmologically important to just kill them off. Balance of Light and Dark and all that (plus other primals don't have any of that 'need for balance' shit going on either) though I suppose having neither around would technically be balanced.

    That said, I don't think it's out of the question for Hydaelyn and Zodiark to be primals either, just that the source claiming they are is highly suspect imo, even moreso than other Ascians

    Lotta people saying "omg confirmed" after the trailer really aren't thinking about who is saying it and who he's talking to. I'm half expecting that was a deliberate misdirection from the fat guy explaining how sin eaters work and almost word for word matching vidofnir or hraesvalgrs description of what a primal actually is.

    But in other news WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW

    I spoke to them ages ago about it, they added a 'charge debit right now' button on the order description that worked for me.

    My FC mate (a high parsing WHM) hardly has to cast direct heals. With 2 average DPS, and Holy spam, the enemies in expert roulette are dead or near dead by time the near 10s of stun time wears off. An oGCD heal is all that's needed most of the pulls (and I am not max geared, I'm like i370?).



    This is true, in almost all cases. However, I do remember looking at some top PLD parses one time and remember seeing like a rank 30 parse (so 99th percentile) that was at enrage. Not only that, every other member was like sub 30th percentile. It really struck me as odd. I've always watched my brother get 99th-100 percentile parses in our casual as fuck heroic guild too (on the few mythic bosses we kill), because our encounters were longer he could get more execute stacks and outperform top mythic raiders (keep in mind he's an ex top raider as well).



    Bingo.



    This is the ONLY thing you've said that is "factually correct". You are a prime example of the type of FF14 player that I often cite as toxic. You spout nonsense in a mouth frothing manner that is objectively false. You've offered absolutely nothing positive to this discussion and done nothing but antagonize numerous posters and insult them.



    I'm fairly confident that SE doesn't have anything capable in the existing package to do this, we'd know about it. They could add it in the future though. That said, they'd expose themselves to a lawsuit for banning people without clear definitive proof of that the players were kicking because of ACT. No dev would expose themselves to that risk. Simply having the program running would be circumstantial at best, and that's not enough to win a court case.



    The problem is there is a huge subset of players who are afraid of parsing culture unnecessarily. They don't understand it or have flat out inaccurate misconceptions of its use/value.
    is 370 really that geared?

    I hit 70 and was handed a full set of 380 WHM gear lol

    Kind of. It takes some time and effort to get to 370/380 if you don't get crafted gear (which is 150k-200k per piece, at least on my datacenter, so with 12 slots that's about 2 million gil to get a full set). In terms of numbers it's basically 70% geared since level 70 gear starts at 300 and ends at 400.
