    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:

    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.

    That reminds me, I do need to get level 70 tank and ranged sets for when I start leveling through ShB with them. I was skipping out on the level 60 gear since I'm planning on leveling them both through PotD and maybe some beast tribe quests and roulettes from 60-61 and HoH from 61-70 so the gear doesn't matter.

    DNC will be my first, GNB likely my second if the game play is as fun to me as it looks, SMN will be soon after, with AST being the healer I level first. After that it's all up in the air. Though DRK will be sooner than later.

What's the recommended way to gear up at lvl 70 according to MMO-Champion?

    I don't want to whine, but I've found out the hard way that this game is no WoW where you get handed infinite amount of upgrades (at least for a while) the moment you reach max level in current expansion. I've found out a guide on Reddit (but it's for Patch 4.3) and seems pretty complicated, with lots of stuff to do.

    There will be a time when you can buy Scaevar Gear with Tomestones of Poetics but it'll happen at ShB Launch so it's too late to wait for that if you still have MSQ to finish.

    Additionally I'd like to upgrade my Relic Weapon a bit in Eureka, but getting started seems difficult this late into expansion when many players who do Eureka are already at High Eureka Lvl, so I'm not getting any invites to Fate Trains at Eureka Level 6 and soloing is so slow. How come there is no group finder for Eureka?
    You can buy 380 gear on the market board. Or you can craft it yourself. ~50-150k gil a piece on my server.

    It's going to be a busy first month for me.

    My main I'll level as PLD first so I can tank things for my FC. I'll use trust dungeons to level dragoon probably to see the different party interactions.

    Then my crafting/gathering alt needs to level red mage or dragoon, not to mention the actual doh/dol classes.

    My other alt needs to level smn/sch.

    My other other alt needs to level whm...

    My other other other alt needs to level ninja and gnb...

    Yeah your "fun" stops when the endeavor starts to be a group effort. Pull your weight. No I don't mean salivating over orange E-Peen parses but doing the minimum the encounter requires in order to be killable should be an obvious common courtesy. If you can't: stay out of the content.
    .
    Such a load of utter drivel.


    Had you known the slightest thing about FF14, you would know the core bulk of the game isn't about optimal rotation or such, but in mechanics. You learn them, dps is secondary believe it or not. All dungeons and raids have a timer for completion. That is the content limit. Not how fast the boss dies.

    Also every raid has a hard gear limit for using the Duty Finder (and you need to use Duty Finder to complete the MSQ/Quests, not unsyncing/cheesing allowed). The reason SE is very anti dps meters etc, is literally because of the nonsense you just spouted about "People need to play!". They don't. Yoshi P said a few times now, that FF14 is a multi-player FF game, and not to be viewed as some kind of competitive MMO style "Imma best!" epeen stroking game.


    Piss off back to WoW, please.

    To add, it is worth checking mogboard.com for the best price on your datacenter. can shave off a few hundred grand no problem by hopping between realms and using their MB.

    Otherwise your best bet for gear is to hammer the raids. Ridorana Lighthouse drops 360 gear, as do the omega raids. Getting a weapon will be shitty, though. You'll need to do O8, 4 times for a 360 weapon, or O12 4 times for the 390 weapon. you can get a 340 weapon from B-rank hunts to get your foot into ridorana/O8.

    I'll take Paladin through the MSQ. It's my "main", the one I've played through all the previous story as. Then I'm thinking about trying out Dancer. I did Red Mage second last time, and while it's good, I don't feel any urge to get it to max in this expansion.

    And after you have learned the mechanics what do you do ? That's right you optimize your rotation just like...any action/rpg game ever.
    You don't need to view the game as "some kind of competitive MMO style "Imma best!" epeen stroking game" to be DECENT at your job (i.e. Using AoEs, never stop casting if in no immediate danger, rotating defensive CDs, knowing how your job gauge works and how to use it.) that's pretty easy to do.
