    Ah ha...thanks so much.
    Do you know about the letter? I saw 'A' which I assume means aggro, what about R and S and Y and X?

    EDIT - nevermind, the letters literally appear to just go down the alphabet. I guess so you can call out a monster.

    I'm currently playing on phoenix all alone and friendless.. Might I join you fine gentlemans?

    Yes! Please do!

    Sarg likes to lock character creation though, so please try and make your catgirl at a low population time of day.

    ...and when you are done with that; take a folding
    chair to Creation and then suplex the Void.

    Yeah, they're for groups to identify targets. All group members see the same letter on each mob.

    Also, for any weavers who don't know, there are levequests that reward 10 diremite per, and you can get them to repeat. For instance, the level 20/25 WVR leves have a chance of rewarding diremite, and if you're submitting HQ for the 3 coifs of gathering (in Quarrymill), I have yet to have that not repeat. So typically I'll get at least 30 diremite webs for 9 HQ coifs of gathering. Basically, you can just farm cotton and turn it into diremite webs, if you don't want to fight with people over diremite spawns.

    Thing is I don't see abusing fates any worse that abusing dungeon mechanics for speed runs. I'm mean it the same thing you are just grinding a different number in a way that square enix did not intend.

    When instead of going out and doing 50 fates, dungeon runs, what have you to gain XP, you just sit in a pair of 8 man zerg rush parties spamming AOE while the game accidentally serves up free XP, that's a huuuuuuge exploit. It's no different if you discovered you could craft something that vendored for 10x or 50x more than the equivalent items you could craft, and proceeding to join the rest of the huge horde of people at the guildhall spamming quick synth.

    So how does the crafter/harvester "AF" stuff work? I noticed all the pieces, including the weapon, are quest rewards from the same quest? Is it repeatable or something?

    Wow I tanked the first dungeon I ever did.

    I somehow wandered in all the right directions as people followed me too (not that the first one seems to be complicated on where to go, but there are a few areas I could have pulled some extra pulls on accident)

    Had no issues and the healer congratulated us so I say thats a win. But after everything I said about the basic combat and slow GCD I still had a bit of shellshock when I first started doing it and I am NO stranger to tanking.

    Just finished the story.
    That was amazing. I was really invested by the end there. I love how they ended it but kept it going in a way. Also, they tied in the hard mode primals to the story, very cool.

    What was that at the end where the Ascian dudes where talking about bahamut?

    I still haven't figured out exactly when is good to use it though, 'cos the animation is quite long and stoppers other abilities in the interim. Sure is fun and neat lookin', though.

    Just ran through Amdapor for the first time with a PA group. Thanks for showing me the ropes of tanking it and putting up with my silly mistakes, guys!

    I ended up getting my first piece of darklight, a piece of level 60 gear, and my Second Lieutenant weapon because of that run, so I feel a bit less squishy now.

    Man, I can see what that crazy guy on the official forums was talking about with Cat girls having absolutely 0 ass. It's kind of disgusting and make me sick, way to go square.

    I found the one good thing about being stuck on a Japanese server, there's virtually no gil spam. I've blacklisted one person total compared to 4-5 every time I go on an American server. Jeez, they really need a report button.

    I'm getting seriously disheartened with HM Ifrit. I've done the place so many times I don't ever want to see the color red again. I have the interrupts down so well that I can be falling asleep and still get everyone. Still no warrior weapon. Just did a run were the paladin failed miserably on interrupts and me and a dps had to do it in phase 3 and we limp to victory. Of course the pally weapon drops. The game is just screwing with me at this point.

    Well I had my first real run in with complete fuckturds. Essentially whined and talked shit about me after the first pull when they refused to sleep. Lot's of "OMG learn your fucking job before you do dungeons!". "See that button labeled overpower, press it!". It must be nice to play DPS and not actually feel like wasting the effort of using what little you have in the way of utility in favor of sweet big numbers.

    If you decide to unload after I pull with tomahawk and have yet to even actually hit anything in melee, your problem not mine.

    It was basically like being stuck with complete assholes in a game of dota. First time I've just left a party mid dungeon.

    You can report, but it's an obtuse process involving moving through the customer support menus.
