    I usually don't backflip off a cliff as Red Mage.

    My big thing is backflipping out of the boss arena in dungeons right when the barrier comes up to lock me out. My timing is unreal.

    It's a rite of passage for DRGs, RDMs, and BRDs to use their jump back to go flying off a cliff.

    I don't think I've ever used bard's backwards jump in an actual fight

    I just never needed to jump out because I never went in

    why would I go in as a bard?

    Never!

    Being able to dash in, do a fancy magic Zorro impersonation, then backflip out is probably 80% of what makes RDM so fun

    You can use it to cancel knock backs

    I bring years of experience backflipping off of, and occasionally back onto, boss platforms as a hunter in WoW. These are my marketable job skills.

    Got to play in Eorzea Cafe today. It was cool except for the parts that I messed up on.
    jUAUnhC.jpg

    It's not a big room. There's some seats at the bar for single patrons, a bunch of two-person tables, and one or two four-person tables. Artwork and decorations and prop weapons all around with a section in the middle with PCs and a PS4 to play on.

    I messed up on a few points. One, I forgot to upload my settings profile while back home so I had to manually rearrange things which took up several minutes, more so because I was working with a Japanese client. Two, I wasted a ton of time in Duty Finder because I forgot to turn on the setting to allow searching within English-language parties, then I managed to get into a trial fairly quickly after I fixed that. Three, I ordered a drink off the menu without properly reading it. Some sort of hot marshmallow-topped Moogle-themed drink. What I thought would be chocolate under those marshmallows turned out to be coffee, and I don't drink coffee. I know what "コーヒー" looks like on the menu, I just skimmed over reading it all the way through, so that's my fault.

    On the other hand, one of the staff saw my character and said it was kawaii. So that balances things out. I'll have to do it properly the next time I'm in town here.

    Heather Alexandra at Kotaku did a little email interview with Yoshi P about FFXIV, namely the nature of Limited Jobs and blue mages, worries about World Visits and the economy, andhis thoughts on "modern" MMOs: https://kotaku.com/final-fantasy-xivs-director-talks-blue-mages-world-vis-1832757804
    However, we do plan to raise the level cap on the Blue Mage—and this doesn’t necessarily have to be timed with an expansion release. So at some point during the 5.x patch series, players can expect new blue magic which can be acquired, additions to the Masked Carnivale, and even new content to tackle.

    I would say we are only at the “So You Want to be a Blue Mage?” chapter in the overall journey for this job—there is a lot of future blue mage content in the pipeline for our players to enjoy.

    I dunno if this is just random chance and perception bias but I feel like I saw 75% catgirls running dungeons during the free trial, and now only see about 30% catgirls running dungeons in the level range above 35. This works out for me because I made a catgirl and I have a thing about picking the thing it feels like everyone picks, my conscience is much clearer now.

    Maybe it's because half the catgirls rerolled to dragon ladies after buying the expansions???

    No yeah the game population has to be at least like 30% cat and Au Ra girls. And like another huge chunk is Au Ra boys.

    The number of light parties I run that's 3 tiny dragon girls and then my big ass trundling along behind is high.

    Even though I Fantasia every couple of months, I keep coming back to Fem-Roe. Second to that is female Miqo'te and female Au Ra.

    I have character appearance saves I like for those three (plus female Elezen, not that's relevant here), so the changeover only takes a few minutes. (It's really fun saying "brb" to friends and zoning into the next dungeon as a totally different race.)

    My two minor complaints about the female Roegadyn design is the nasal ridge being completely flat across the front and, specific to my character appearance save, there's only one hairstyle that "looks right."

    If I had a highlander appearance save that looked like that, highlander would go into the Fantasia rotation.

    Thank you thank you

    You're not the first one to make that comparison so maybe there was some subconscious sway since Bayonetta is one of my favorite games. After hearing that I tried on a short Bayonetta 2 hair style and it was way more apparent.

    Given how much time I've spent on transmog in wow, a game notorious for having extremely limited customization, this game will probably kill me.

    I can't wait to get to the point where I'm not churning through new armor too fast to make it worthwhile to think about how it looks. I hate the mismatched MMO character deal, especially the last three levels where Siege had like a heavy plate top in dark blue and grey with weird bone looking pauldrons, green and organge cloth gloves, a leather subligar, and red gladiator sandals. He looked like he had to run out of his house and fight after only putting half his armor on.

    Does armor depend on race and sex? Because my catboy keeps getting either big tunics or horny armor, like multiple times I've been leveling in a hard leather thong
    Right now I have the bard choral set with a fuckin bondage harness

    The Thong of Shame is a rite of passage for DPS, just as the can is for tanks.

    Armor type is driven by job type, though race and gender can affect the model.

    Subligar is just a type of armor they use once in a while. They mostly dropped it after ARR ended.

    The level 63 dungeon set is just sexy fancy swimsuits for every class though, and it's pretty great.

    Back in FF11 a major piece of gear for endgame with finesse classes was a subligar. Seemed like any time you saw a Ranger or Thief, or anyone with Ninja as either main or support job, they'd be wearing a pointy forest ranger hat and a pair of red metal underoos.

    They went and made a glamour version of that for the summer event too.

    Anyways, once you unlock glamours, you can quickly overwrite the appearance of mismatched or ugly armor to a saved look with the glamour dresser setup. Very handy.

    I think you can make Glamour plates at any time in the glamour dresser in your inn room. So if you have a good-looking set of lower-level armour you like, you can make it into a plate and slap it over your current gear. It costs one 1 glamour prism per piece of gear to add them into the dresser, but a plate can be applied an unlimited amount of time. And glamour prisms sell for fairly cheap on the market boards.

    So beyond the initial investment you can just re-apply the plate whenever you get new gear.
