    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.

    I'm still gonna kill it. I never gave that oversized rock consent to molest me.

    There's no way they're going to go, "Hey so Zodiark and Hydaelyn are ancient Primals" and then go, "PSYCH! WE WERE LYING! HAHAHAH!"

    To the Warrior of Light specifically, the Ascians have never lied or been unreliable narrators. In fact, they're the biggest ones that the story trots out to explain the backstory of the world. Not only could it be incredibly unfulfilling for them to introduce this plot element and then go, 'luls we were lying,' but it exactly fits with everything we know about the two "gods" until now. It fits exactly correct in with how other Primals act and how Hydaelyn/Zodiark act with the Warrior of Light (and those with the Echo) and the Ascians.

    Pretty much, the Ascians themselves (like in the later Stormblood cutscenes goin on in Garlemald between Solus and Varis and Zenos as well as the story/paths that we follow as the player character and the Scions to track them down have been the vehicles for these kinds of lore drop moments since ARR.

    While I suppose it's still possible that this could be a hoax, nothing up to this point has lead us to believe the Ascians are giving us false information. They really have no reason to.

    So until proven otherwise, I'm choosing to take what is being said at face value.

    Playing this on the PC, bought ARR for €6 for the PS4 to play it while I'm minding my sister's house... tried to login on the PS4 and I got a security "issue" in place and had to reset my password.

    Tried to apply the one-time pass security token thing, and it wasn't accepting any of my answers to the security questions...

    Un-fucking-believable...

    Just to make sure the question is asked, but did you register your PS4 account on your SE account?

    So fun fact. I was doing a few Orbonne's last night. They were all pretty standard (awful) by all means don't wanna upset my boy Faroth so I'll spare the usual details, but on the last one before bed some clown marked me as the MT. Like, no one asked, just put a mark on me and no one else. Sure I'll be MT then. Great community btw.

    So anyways, we're at Cid and all of a sudden I get rescued to another platform after like 20s in of the fight. I'm thinking to myself what the fuck? Then I said to myself, ok WHY did he do this MAYBE I was doing something wrong, but there wasn't any AOEs or anything....

    My dumbass was with the wrong alliance. I was Alliance B 2x in a row and hadn't realized I was A on the third run. I was falling asleep mid run so that's 100% my bad. I just said, "Good call, I'm an idiot". He just said "XD".

    The point of this post is to always reflect on yourself first and foremost. SHB can't come soon enough. There are a lot of enemies who I need to Confiteor (stupid fucking name).

    Fun fact #2. I called off my engagement back in September maybe of last year, I'd be getting married in roughly 2 weeks, the day Shadowbringers EA drops... That would have tilted me to no end.

    How do I do that ?

    "EDIT: you have to go to the square Enix STORE website and manage your account from there. My profile > settings > link account > link PSN"
    There's literally zero option to do that on the website;

    Not sure if this is the correct thing, been ages since I have done it but in mogstation I get this:
    Playing on PlayStation®4

    Playing on PlayStation®4

    Users who wish to play on the PlayStation®4 version of FINAL FANTASY XIV are required to log into the PlayStation®Store with their account for PlayStation™Network and purchase the download version or enter the registration code that was included in the package version.

    Got to it by logging into mog station, clicking "your account" then clicking add new service account.

    Yeah, so... Square Enix's site is completely messed up. The one you pictured is the Square Enix store, that has nothing to do with the game account. For that you need mogstation site.

    Sorry, I meant the Mogstation, not SE site. My bad.

    I think Deus Mortis got you covered.

    Sorted. I just had to login on the PS4 and link it to my SE account from there.

    Good to hear it. Enjoy your gaming on PS4!

    I'm to the point now where I'm so looking forward to the launch of Shadowbringers, that I'm scouring the web trying to find any new information, youtube video, interview, or speculation thread, talking about it to feed my hype.

    Looking forward to the Live Letter later today.

    Anyone else feeling like this?

    I finally gave up waiting for the e-mail from the collectors edition waiting list and pre-ordered the digital PC CE just to make sure I was able to get early access. So I'm sure I'll be getting the e-mail any day now... my luck.

    And I think I finally decided Dancer is going to be my first job leveled to cap this expansion.

    What are everyone's plans for when the ex pack launches? I'll be leveling Dancer for sure, and probably Gunbreaker too, to 70 before setting off on the MSQ of Shadowbringers...HoH here I come...hooray.

    I really haven't been scouring anything, I figure there will be quite a few changes and balances that they have to do once things go live, just like in Stormblood so I'm not too concerned with how the pieces fit together just yet. I'll probably watch any further analysis from Xenosys Vex once things go live and we have a better picture. Right now though, I'm just trying to finish up the ARR beast tribes since I've been slacking on them for the better part of 4 years, and stocking up on cordials/gathering/crafting scrips. The raid team is also making sure everyone has at least 2 coffers and enough pages to buy both new classes omega weapons and gear to kit them out when we start them.

    I will still probably level Warrior first, but Gunbreaker or Dark Knight will be my second and thirds.

    SAM through MSQ

    DRK via roulettes, though I'm curious about the "MSQ for main job, sidequests for alt job" idea they seem to be encouraging. If that can work and the sidequests aren't intended to get you through the MSQ with extra leveling, I might do them on WHM as I'm in different areas. I don't like to do the MSQ and then go back for sidequests later. I need all the lore first!

    WHM via roulettes if not the sidequest route.

    Then we'll see what I do next. Might do the crafting stuff which is sounding rather interesting.
