    Thanks to my new gear from Gibetto Inc, I feel like a beast in combat. It's nice. Also got around to fighting King Mog last night and was using remote play on Vita. Seifer was right, these are quick and easy now since people know what to do. The queue was even short, so hurray!

    People love fighting King Moggle Mog lol. Just don't even worry. The game won't be hard enough where you just can't do something until you get to extreme stuff.... and maybe Titan lol. People just can't seem to do titan haha.

    I really hope I just have to do the HM stuff and none of the Extreme primals. At least not unless I WANT to.

    Extreme Primals are extremely optional. I still haven't gotten around to doing most of them.
  • MacstormMacstorm Ysy St. Administrators
    I didn't think I'd seen anywhere that said they were required. Glad of that. Hope the rest of the HM fights go as smoothly as this one did.

    My pics from yesterday didn't turn out great, but here's one anyway:

    Is the elephant in the room that all the endgame weapons are ugly? The shire, POTD, Zurvan, and (most) anima weapons are bland or unappealing. Glamours are great and all, but sometimes I want to work hard for a powerful weapon and not have it look like something that should be holding up a lean-to.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    I have to admit it has felt like that for a while in FFXIV. Last weapon I really loved were the finished Zeta weapons from Realm Reborn. The MNK's were essentially claws that looked like they were from Ifrit himself. Only weapons I've really loved so far in Heavensward have been from the GARO event recently added.

    The PotD weapons aren't awful so much as they glow red and have nothing else interesting going on. It's an ilvl 255 weapon you can get in a couple days, so I'm not complaining too hard about it. I just see these weapons the most and don't like how we're all running around wielding a giant red Christmas light somewhat shaped like a weapon.

    On almost the total other side of the spectrum are the level 260 shire weapons. You have to beat the final Alex fight every week for two months to get only one shire weapon, and they're so dull it's hard to distinguish the white mage staff from my coat.

    2Yd8FIr.png

    I spent 8 hours in and out of party finder groups to beat Zurvan Ex, the hardest fight in the game excluding the hardcore raid, and all I got was a piece of metal with a jagged head. Worst Valentine's Day ever.

    But the worst offender is the anima weapon. I completed every phase before any were nerfed, including absolutely ludicrous lore and Alex 1-4 grinds. The end result is something Gerolt found in the back of a farmer's shed that's supposed to look cool because it shows off the glowing, white anima, a living spirit trapped inside this piece of crap for all eternity. If you think this looks remotely impressive, you need to check out the ARR relic weapons.

    And while I'm posting screens, this happened today, and it got pulled at the exact time I took the screen. This is now one of my favorite screenshots.

    And no matter how many times I try to lie in JRPGS, they refuse to let me. The Time Goddess would be pleased.

    Seems like we'll also be going to Doma this expansion, I wonder how that will work.

    Also samurai is DPS, but robe samurai = best samurai so that's cool.
  • Jammy DodgerJammy Dodger New Member Full Members
    I recall saying long ago that I thought it would be interesting if SE would give us both Ala Mhigo AND Doma in a single expansion, but it was dismissed by others saying that would be too much for a single expansion. After seeing the new full trailer... I am so excited to see my wish fulfilled!

    New patch out, immediately went and bought the play dead emote from the cash shop even though I'm not even subbed right now.
  • Jammy DodgerJammy Dodger New Member Full Members
    When the patch launched, I perused the cash shop and found the two new emotes. I was dumbfounded. After accustoming myself to seeing mounts, seasonal items, and unique attire, I did a doubletake upon seeing emotes in the cash shop. It was probably an inevitability, but it's still a shock nonetheless. That said, the backflip looks meh, but that play dead emote... Ha!
  • 7thCircle7thCircle Proofer of the Realm RPGamer Staff
    The thought of a backflipping lala white mage amuses me. But the play dead emote that looks like dead children is funny in a way too.

    I'll scream this to the heavens.

    I FINALLY GOT THE LATEST STAGE OF MY ANIMA WEAPON DONE. Cane of the White Tzar get!

    Here's to hoping the rest of the steps to finish it won't take me months to get done. I'd like to get'er done before the expansion, plz. ^^

    Congratulations!

    Not knowing anything about how or how often you play FF14, I'd guess if it took you a long time to finish the Cane of the White Tzar, it's going to take you months to get the complete anima weapon (which isn't the last step). It's a shorter step, but you only make progress when playing as a white mage in Heavensward content, and the progress moves very slowly unless you're intentionally grinding it. If it took you a long time to gather the tomes for the prior step, you aren't naturally playing FF14 in such a way that the "complete" step will move quickly.

    But on the bright side, the Cane of the White Tzar looks much better than the complete anima weapon!

    Farm A1S. If it's a window, you get maximum light bonus. If it's not, you'll get the 2nd highest amount. With good players, you'll be skipping most of the fight and can ignore mechanics, and the helper will come out constantly at around 5-15% HP. Meaning it's a pretty easy burn. Just be careful you don't push TOO hard, you don't want to kill the first one before the 2nd comes out.

  • 7thCircle7thCircle Proofer of the Realm RPGamer Staff
    I was guessing that if she didn't get the Cane of the White Tzar until now, and it look a long time, then she was probably not willing to grind dungeons/ARF hard for tomes and is not going to grind A1S hard either. Also, the A1S grind is not as fast as a healer since PF groups want more DPS. I ended up finding it faster to just use DF when I wanted to A1S grind, but it was boring and I ended up killing a few birds with one stone by running Void Ark when it was in bonus for a lot of my light.

    I did it mostly doing roulettes/tombstones, tho at the last, I was buying materia to finish it. Just so you know, I try not to go too hard in this game; I'm half casual. (I try to do that every day, and I do casual raids once a week. So I prolly will be doing Void Ark.) Also I admit I took a few months off when I had a load of video games to play; trying not to do that now.

    I'll look into that too when I get there. I have NOT done any savage on it though, ever. And since I do Void Ark anyway, that prolly won't be a big deal.

    I started playing again. Abel Maxwell is my dood, but I made a couple new characters and am playing around with the idea of just going with new characters. Main reasons:

    -I want a cat lady red mage. It must be done.
    -The Au Ra guy looks cool. He's a marauder right now because I know how to use the class even if I suck at using him with a keyboard.

    Abel is still going to be my go-to for pretty much everything else. Au Ra guy will probably be streamed more, when I get my streaming set up to not suck. Abel is crafty and my dragoon. He'll probably transition into samurai unless dragoon armour looks bad Moo next expansion.

    How do you send mail to yourself? Or is it not possible? I figure I can make new gear HQ easily enough, so I could just keep outfitting my dudes.

    So, TL;DR: Need to level cat lady (Medea K'tee), streaming some Boggy Jim the Au Ra, main story and stuff with Abel.

    I got though that last stage pretty darned fast.

    I now have a Sharpened Cane of the White Tzar, and working on pneumite. Not sure when I need to start gathering light.

    The plan for the light is PVP, 60/expert roulette, and Void Ark. A1S if I can unlock it and find a group. I figure that should get it going pretty fast I hope.

    Whew. After all the light grinding..and believe me, that was a month long grind..

    sindri.jpg

    SINDRI GET. It's pretty but I can understand if other weapons look more impressive. Oh and a correction; the spirit isn't trapped in there. See that minion? It can inhabit that too.

    Anyway I'm almost done with the last stage. Just waiting on some folks from a LS I'm in so we can smash though the last three primals; it's the warring triad btw. I've never done that so I'd rather have at least one friend that can explain mechs if I don't know. ^^

    [EDIT] Thank you Hellz Taki for walking me though those primals!

    sindrilux.jpg

    I'm glad I was able to get this done before the maint. Weap is not impressive but I'm sure this'll last me quite a while next month. ^^
