    so this is probably going to be my first raid where I make an efforf to get the gear from it

    what do I need to know?

    The 24 man? When the raid first comes out you can only get 1 piece of gear each week. Also you can only need it if it's for a class you enter the raid as. You can always greed for a piece that another class uses if you want. Things that aren't gear (so like pets, cards, and orchestration rolls) don't count towards the 1 per week so you can roll on those as much as you want.

    If you mean for the 8 man then they just removed the weekly restriction on items (aside from the item used to get a weapon, that's still 1 per week). So you can run the latest raid tier as much as you want to get that set. Don't recall if it's the same for savage, but I don't do savage raiding.

    just the 24 man

    there's some kinda thing with coins and gems or something?

    How it usually works is the first time you run a new 24-man each week (or every time for older raids) you get a token. Various coins have been the tokens for each the past two expansions' worth.

    With those tokens, you can trade one of each to get a material to upgrade a piece of current tomestone equipment.

    So with one of the first two tokens, you can get a material to upgrade 360 gear. With one of all three tokens, you can get a material to upgrade 390 gear. And so on.

    mmkay, I've got older coins lying around for one upgrade's worth already, I'll justgrab more in future weeks

    thank you for the explanation!

  • AngelHedgieAngelHedgie Registered User regular

    Also, you can buy the upgrade items with Centurio Seals. The way this works is that there are log tokens you can buy for 500 seals each, and then you can trade in the logs for the upgrade items. The accessory upgrade is 4 logs (2000 seals) while the armor upgrade is 6 logs (3000 seals). Given that you can get a weekly total of 1740 seals without A/S rank hunting, this is another route for upgrades.

    (I made sure to cap my Centurio seals yesterday in preparation, to be ahead of the curve.)

    Well, that was cool, but then I go check their channel to see what other 8bit FFXIV remixes they have up and turns out that Triumph is the only one I recognize. I either didn't do any of those other fights or didn't do them enough to remember how they sounded.

    This will be the first patch where I'm actually, y'know... caught up on gear and msq. So that's exciting!
    Just server-switched to Sargatanas, too, so if anyone is there and wants to bust out some new content with me, that would be rad

    I found it enjoyable the first time through, but mainly for the stuff between bosses. Second boss is good, last boss is rough.

    Lot of interesting stuff happening story wise but holy shit it was literally all just teleporting from one cutscene to another this time. Would have killed for some kind of action in there somewhere.

    Just finished the Four Lords quest chain.
    I was wondering if Koryu was going to be a solo quest battle or simply escape to be a boss later down the road. But then as soon as I saw the model I knew it was just going to be taken care of in a cutscene, which it was. Had we seen what Koryu looked like before? I can't even remember.

    Also, Tataru owes me some money. Like, lots of it. Or at least needs to be covering the costs of procuring and maintaining any gear and travel expenses I incur.
    As well as my crippling orchestrion roll addiction.

    Yeah. And he somehow thinks the Ascians are going to just let them beat them after it, or something.

    Also apparently he believes them on that whole race thing... and meanwhile we already know it's false for, at a minimum, the Ixal and dragons.

    not quite since he'll die too in the process. I don't think he's 100% wrong about it either. The opposition isn't "this won't work" so much as "We're not letting you kill millions to make it work"

    I'm not sure he believes that people on the Source will end up dead, just all the shards, while everyone on the Source is magically turned into an Aryan or whatever amd can them rise up and defeat the Ascians.

    Pretty sure he doesn't know about Zodiark.
    Or that the Ixals were born of Allagan meddling.
    Or that dragons are of extrastellar origin.

    He does know of Ascian nigh-immortality, but not of the ways to slay them... and still thinks its all going to work out.

    Not really, since he wanted to summon a primal, which means destroy the world anyways for anyone without the Echo.

    It's... more debatable for someone with the Echo since they can use it as a self-transformation and be in conscious control. And not obsessed with consuming aether.

    In that regard, Zenos was correct - Shinryu would have been a viable tool to destroy Ascians. If someone other than a maniac had it.

    Regarding Varis:
    He's spent his entire life being manipulated by the Ascians. He had his own child turned into a monster by them. He's only the Emperor in name - in reality he is a puppet.

    Given that, and his Garlean upbringing, it's no wonder that he thinks he needs more power to defeat the Ascians - from where he's sitting, they are the puppeteers who control the most powerful nation from the shadows.

    But for the Warrior of Light and the Alliance, the Ascians may be dangerous foes, but they're not invincible. They've already killed three Paragons, including one of the Paragons of the Source. They've seen that the Ascians aren't the masterminds they play at being - they can be outsmarted, they are very much subject to hubris. But Varis is too blinkered, too wrapped up in his own ego to realize that.
