    meh i just want it because 1. it's not a creature and 2. it looks good on ground and in air which is something i always want for my mounts.
    i'd rather use the bike though if they'd just added some wings to it or something.
    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    The Motorcycle is the one I use all the time. It's ground speed is always higher than normal mounts until you get the speed increase, which is great while leveling, it has a really small profile (width wise) and doesn't have a ton of particle or sound effects that go along with it while it's flying so it's the least visually intrusive mount I have.

    yeah it's great i'd just like some change for it for flying so that it looks like it's capable of flight you know?

    I really enjoy the graphics and the MSQ is awesome. I got myself smiling all the time when i went to the cassino area, so good

    But then, IMO, the game is plagued with a huge flaw, wich is, ability bloat and the 4 men dungeon party.

    Excuse me what? 8+ diferent buttons to perform the ST rotation, then 4+ diferent buttons for AOE. So eh, unless they prune a bit (well, not a bit but way more), i guess FF will only have a place for me is to get updated with the story and then wait until the next xpack is ready.

    The classes i tried were monk, samurai, machinist, bard and black mage and the only class that i really fell in love was monk, but eh..the ability bloat, F.

    You should try Red Mage. It's the least bloaty of the bunch in my opinion.

    Preface: I think there is a bit of bloat.

    However, I think it is important to bear in mind the alternatives. WoW achieves small rotations through an enormous amount of RNG, and having now played a significant amount of FF14, I really prefer a few too many abilities to massive amounts of RNG... or really any RNG at all. Procs suck, and that's an opinion I only came to after playing a lot of FF14 and then going back to WoW and trying to play it again. The process suddenly stopped feeling exciting. Instead they felt like a chore.

    Meh, with all the other magic and technology and such going around in the game world, a flying motorcycle isn't THAT unbelievable.

    The Fat Chocobo shouldn't be able to fly either, but that piece of cake gets it super motivated apparently.

    The funniest ones, IMO are the T-Rex from Eureka and the Christmas bear.

    What's the issue with the 4 person dungeon?

    To each their own, really. I like procs, gives me something to react to in my rotation.

    There's nothing more boring than feeling like you could just look away from your screen and 1-2-3 your rotation out indefinitely.

    I've never felt like that in FF14 though, because there are resource and cool down mechanics to interact with.

    I want to react to fight mechanics, not randomized aspects of my build that don't do anything to make my character "cooler".

    issue is because the first time i lvl'ed all the way up to shb was with 2 more friends, so it sucked really hard because we dont like tanking and healing, so one of us always had to be left out of the dungeon and had to do with it 3 randoms or wait until the run is over and one of us would have to go again.

    Out of curiosity, why are all of you so opposed to tanking and/or healing?

    I can completely understand doing it by yourself and being at the mercy of PUGs all the time, but Tanks especially really ARE just Blue DPS, their game play isn't hugely dissimilar from DPS classes. Turn on tank stance which makes the keeping monster attention super easy, use defensive's appropriately but otherwise you focus on doing as much damage as possible just like DPS do.

    Also, if any of you are leveling a caster, Summoner levels Scholar right along side itself (leveling one automatically levels the other since they're both tied to the Arcanist sub class), so switching over to SCH for a dungeon run so you can all go together would be easily doable.

    Additionally, once you get to ShB content, ShB dungeons can be done solo using the Trust system.

    Not trying to make you do something you really don't want to do, just saying that tanking and healing really aren't bad especially with a group of friends and doing so would alleviate your problem.

    >Lots of storage included right off the bat
    >The mounts look amazing
    >Many many quality of life inclusions
    >No need to run mods
    >Default HUD can make some really great looking UIs
    >The HW and on flight acquisition system is great (discovery and some quests)
    >Voice overs (HW and on) and great. I don't mind ARR but HW and on are better
    >Dungeons/Trials/raids, and all the difficulty levels, are excellent
    >The boss fights (late ARR and on) are really fun
    >People in-game are super nice. Haven't bumped into any toxic at 6 days played yet
    >1 character, all the jobs (classes) - This is amazing and will help me feel connected to my character

    It's a good thing that polar opposites exists when it comes to Eastern and Western developers regarding freedom of expression in relation to your avatar. The freedom to choose and the freedom to express myself in FF14 is one of the factors why I would enjoy FF14 over wow(head) nannies.

    The flashy weapons. The plate armours. The hard encounters. How easy it was to find a static on discord even for ARR content.

    Honestly, the only thing I dont like is inventory management when crafting and what feels like hundred of animation locks playing a dragoon. I cannot even begin to understand how it played when the animations were even longer.

    The fact the game has a boob slider, skimpy outfits and hectic armor sets.

    Who the fuck is blizzard to tell me how to enjoy the game? They virtue signal about all the woke bullshit and want players to express themselves, but only in the western PC-approved narrow world view.

    Good on Square Enix for letting players express themselves how THEY choose

    I may have said so already, but just in case:

    - no signs of pandering to a malevolent foreign nation
    - not feeling pressured to play every single day lest I fall behind
    - knowing that the devs actually care about their product and the consumers using it
    - flying is not a chore to unlock
    - character customization is better
    - many mounts are not just reskins of something else
    - a number of good music scores
    - teleporting without being locked into a certain class
    - tanking and healing isn't a stressful exercise
    - cat people
    - lion people
    - the game's equivalent of LFR isn't a rage-inducing nightmare
    - other players are generally much more polite
    - being able to modify the HUD without X amount of addons
    - boss fight mechanics being easier to both understand and respond to

    There might be more, but that is all that comes to mind right now.

    Oh my god stop whining.

    You can have big boobie anime girls in Japan, but if you think Japan is a haven for free thought and personal expression, I have really really really bad news for you.

    But the tank is cute. I want it.

    Its one of the weird thing that blows my mind about this game. There's this amazingly fun storyline under the surface, but on the surface theres all this...

    ...theres all this... stuff. I dont know how to explicate it. I made a post a long while back about incongruency between the classic fantasy tropes of eorzea and the empire. And how the music just doesnt, (yet completely does), fit the fantasy tropes. I cant even imagine garuda without her soundtrack now. It obviously fits. Imagine garuda with a beautiful ambient soundtrack...

    I just watched a lulu 'streamer' clip where rich made the point: Someone thought 'this is cool, lets put in the game!' and it really feels like so much of this game is built on that premise. This is cool. Its incongruent with the core theme. But fuck it, its cool/funny. Why not have a ww2 tank mount? And as a human being, its baffling. Because i want to take it all very seriously. But... its more fun without the thematic consistency (when it really doesnt matter - ie. cosmetics). I dont know what point im making. The juxtaposition always catches me off guard. I think its 2.1 Hildibrand vs 2.5 cut scene. Or turtle power in 4.0 vs the Mol. I think theres some greek expression about this...

    For one, the game just isn't built with that size/shape of vehicle in mind. It's not always obvious with some mounts, but it's sooo obvious with that one.

    Plus it's just a big car. Not even a particularly interesting one, it's just...a big boat of a car. Doesn't really scream FFXIV to me.
    Of course it doesnt scream FFXIV because its from FFXV
