    I am focusing on leveling every job to max so i am in equal terms with everyone else next expansion. This is involving roulettes, beast tribes and dungeoning.
    I got rank 8 in Bozja and haven't returned. I honestly don't like how it's structured.
    I would return once i catch all jobs up to 70+, but i doubt it will be active by then. I'm not a fan of this type of content. If it's gonna be party based, they should group you with a party when you go in. But, it would be best if it was organic with people just joining in like in guild wars 2. Like, the potencial is there but the execution is poor.

Unlocked that castrum thing but never managed to get in and the rest of the zone is dull both visually and contentwise, the CEs have mechanics and they can be fun but it's just more of the same "boss in a circular room" thing, nothing new. I guess the duels could have been interesting since it is solo content but RNG never let me in and I don't see the appeal in watching someone else have fun in my stead. The whole thing just made me feel like I was playing WoW so I stopped playing altogether, don't want to bother with another badly written RNGfest.

    Yes, you won't get all FATEs in Bozja, that will also be true if you are grouped. Some of them just die way too fast if they spawn while no one was in the Area.
    I'm not grinding fates. I'm doing the ones nearby during Beast Tribe quests. I'm working on getting all my jobs to 80, not all of them have position based AoE. I'm off doing my own thing alone, not part of a zerg. Normally by the time I get there it's mostly completed and it's far too late to get any decent XP from them. It makes them feel like a complete waste of time rather than a nice little XP bump.

    I don't really care too much about the Relic weapons, I've already got 515 ones on the jobs I play regularly anyway.

    It's still the unavoidable damage and I still don't have a Forgotten Cure spell as yet. Though I do have enough Barrier, Shell and Bravery consumables to last until the heat death of the universe at this point .

    I could switch to a job with better healing, but that runs contrary to my goal of hitting level 80. Again, mostly just there for the XP but I do need the mettle to rank up to unlock Castrum.

    Yeah okay, I see the problem now. That won't work as long as people are zerg grinding the relic drops.

    Imho you should just buy some frags off the Auction House. The non castrum ones are cheap now and drop distribution + Level gating makes their regular acquisition suck.... hard.
    I ran Castrum 6 times and still miss 6 actions. <_<

    You won't get many while doing FATEs you have to farm the corresponding trashmobs.

    Is Thornmarch Hard really Hard? I just hit 50 for the first time since this game came out as a Warrior and I'm kinda iffy on tanking it.

    Nah. Its pretty easy. Just tank the king once he shows up away from the other ones. And hopefully the group knows to kill the smaller moogles first. Black mage then white mage and don't think it matters once those two are dead what order you kill the rest. Just as long as the king is the last to die.

    AFAIR just killing adds is not enough, they should be bursted one by one, otherwise the first Memento Moogle is going to wipe the entire party.

    Nope, they nerfed that hard.
    Even if people burst the king, it's no longer an instant wipe.

    People were too stupid for this boss, so SE cut it's pom off a few patches ago.

    No it's just the first fight in the game where the team needs to do one mechanic correctly or the whole raid wipes. The team has to kill the adds in a certain order and that's it.

    It's a shame that it was nerfed - I liked the chaos.

    RIP - Pharos Sirius too. Man that place was so much fun as a dungeon. Shit was dicey almost all of the time. Could pull too much, enemies were actually threatening and it had bomb ass music.

    Nice!

    I'm hoping we get an announcement of the date of the next Live Letter soon. I want to see the 5.4 trailer to generate some hype.

    Huh, the art for the patch depicts the raid, not the MSQ.

    Unless the story from the raid bleeds into the MSQ, which it absolutely should, IMO, given that the story of the raid is intimately related to the story of the First.
