    I gave up there.

    A good chunk of it is easier by walking, but god damn it's still annoying.

    Is there a reward for it, or just bragging rights? I spared myself the frustration with the Kugane tower jumping puzzle by getting a friend to revive me after using BLU self destruct to be carried up the tower...

    started mining this week for the first time. level 58 now. it really highlights how awful all 1-50 content is. the difference between 1-50 and 51+ is insane. they need to kill ARR

    Blah blah it's on my end, yeah sorry don't buy that.
    I know that feeling, recently found out I am playing with a stellar 123 ms and its making SMN kinda irritating to play.

    I actually did the Kugane tower and the savage kugane tower jump onto the little lantern the intended way.
    Took around an hour to get up there using a guide that pointed out the areas in which the DEVs chose to be total asshats (like that "Anger Zone" in the last jump).

    But I did it late in the expansion when I was alone. having a gazillion people hop around in front of me is way too distracting.

    I turn off UI when doing that, no dumb name tags and all.

    Finally finished ARR and onto Heavensward

    Things went tits up pretty quickly. Hope I am not locked out of any locations for too long (not saying which one for spoilers sake). I still have business and job advancements to do.

    You're not locked out of anything. As much as it would be immersive/cool if it did, it'd also be really annoying/hindrance if it did.

    Understood. I wouldn't think they would lock that location unless they moved a lot of quests and job npcs to Ishgard. Which I realize while interesting, would be a huge undertaking

    At least an effort is made to explain why you aren't locked out a bit into the story.

    I'm just amazed at how diverse the mounts really are. There really aren't many 'reskins', a lot of them are pretty unique.

    I really, really hate the wall-to-wall meta. I'm trying to level my WHM, and I simply cannot keep a levelling tank alive in Shadowbringer dungeons. The last two dungeons I tried were wipefests, because the tank refused to pull smaller.

    Wiping is not meta at all
    Having said that, people should definitely stop going full retarded on pretending that they know what they are doing or can do what they are doing when they obviously don't.

    Going wall to wall without at having at least one synced person between the tank and healer on current levelling content is very likely to just be a waste of people's time.

    From my experience having leveled all three healers to max, wall-wall pulling only works out if both the tank and healer stagger their CD's. Gear really isn't an issue unless you're vastly below the ilvl required due to how scaling works in this game.


    The problem is more often than not the tank will pull everything and pop all their CD's while pulling then when he's taking the most damage (once they've hit the wall and all the mobs are whacking them) all of their CD's are down and they die instantly.

    Another mistake I've seen is that healers will waste time healing the group or trying to do damage but during a wall-to-wall pull you should ONLY be healing the tank and ONLY be doing damage during invulns/etc. No dps should be dying due to the trash packs in this game having very little unavoidable aoe.


    EDIT: Though both the tank and healer are irrelevant if your DPS is shit and the enemies live a long time. Wall-to-wall pulling isn't sustainable by any means, which requires all four members to pull their weight.

    Most of the time DPS is shit on levelling content.

    I have been mostly levelling tanks lately (yay DRK for when you don't want to focus too hard on your rotation and GNB for when you don't want the "use big dick nuke 5 times in a row" playstyle). The amount of times I used one CD per time and run out of CDs to use(popping the next one when the previous duration was over) while mobs were still up was too damn high.

    At some point it is worth it to pull less so the healer can make up for the DPS that is dealing less damage than if they just spammed their weakest AoE. You know it's gonna be a long run when one of the DPS is dealing half the tank's damage and the other DPS deals 100 more DPS than the tank.

    Only an idiot tank pulls wall to wall in current leveling content with people in actual leveling gear.

    What are we classifying as low-level though? Because a fair amount of dps don't get a single aoe ability until level 40. And by that time, mashing 1 button over and over is gonna put you to sleep. I know, it happened to me about a half dozen times when I was leveling dragoon and monk a few years ago.

    Funny enough I was leveling my BLM through Qitana Ravel (Level 76.) And the healer literally kept telling the tank to pull more and even rescued him to the last pack. We wiped like five times despite me doing 22k+ dps because neither of them knew what they were doing but they both insisted on doing the same pull over and over, I rarely type in my dungeons but I'm like... can we just chill we're actually time-negative now.
