    this is what geth asked for.


    edit: hey this is where the PA community is apparently

    PA Community Information

    Server:
    Sargatanas (Legacy) NA - Aether Datacenter
    Server Status: http://www.arrstatus.com/

    Reminder: All clients play on the same servers. There will be PS4 players alongside those on Windows/MacOS
    There's three datacenter clusters. One based in Japan, one in North America (located in San Jose, California) and a new EU datacentre
    There are no restrictions on which server cluster you can play on when selecting a server but be mindful of the location for the purposes of latency

    Datacenter groups are used in Duty Finder and Raid Finder group matchmaking.

    Free Company
    Official PA Forum FC: Ghost in the Linkshell <GHOST>

    You can be invited into the FC via the following methods:

    - Rie Himawari
    - Lavinia Lansfeld
    - Jakarrd Himawari
    Find anyone with the <GHOST> tag, select the "View Company Profile" option and submit an application mentioning the PA forums



    note that it's not like a PA exclusive community there's a bunch of people from just the server in general

    Give me the quick and dirty on tanking! In style!
    Tanking 101
    Aggro Management

    What's all these stats do?
    Combat stats are divided into two types: Primary and Secondary stats
    For the sake of brevity, only the basic outline will be covered. Exceptions and "buts" which apply to high-end PvE content will not be mentioned due to added complexity and if you're at the point of optimising at that level, this info isn't for you.

    Primary stats include Strength, Dexterity, Intellect, Mind and Vitality. All of these stats can be allocated with your bonus points for levelling up.
    Secondary stats include Critical Hit, Determination, Direct Hit, Tenacity, Skill Speed, Spell Speed and Piety.
    A "tertiary" stat is weapon damage. Weapon damage is king and any increase will make a very significant impact on your effectiveness.

    Each combat class/job will have a preferred primary stat. For tanks, this is Vitality. Melee DPS except Rogues/Ninjas will favor Strength. Ranged physical DPS and Rogues/Ninjas want Dexterity. Casters will want Intellect and finally Healers want Mind. The primary stats will have a significant effect on all your abilities.

    Secondary stats are a fair bit more complicated.
    Critical Hit - Increases the chance for a hit to deal extra damage as a critical hit. This stat also increases the severity of the critical hits.
    Direct Hit - Similar to Critical Hit, Direct Hits deal extra damage compared to a normal hit. Compared to critical hit, direct hits are lower severity, but occur more often. As with critical hit, this stat increases the severity of the direct hits in addition to increasing the chance a direct hit will occur. This stat can only be found on DPS role gear, however it can be melded via materia on Tank and Healer gear.
    Determination - Increases the potency of all skills and abilities.
    Skill Speed - Rather complex stat. It affects Damage over Time effects at around the same potency as Determination but has other effects in reducing the GCD of weaponskills. Advanced players who are aiming at optimising their play will seek certain amounts of skill speed. Value is dependant on job.
    Tenacity - A new stat introduced with 4.0 Stormblood. This stat replaces Parry and is only available on tank gear, and only affects jobs and classes of the Tank role. This stat increases damage done, reduces damage taken and increases the potency of healing spells and effects.
    Spell Speed - Similar to Skill Speed, this stat affects the cast time and the GCD of spells. Black Mages will sell their own mothers for more spell speed and as a result, the stat occupies a value higher than crit for them. It's still a good stat for any other caster, including healers as it also affects periodic effects such as Damage over Time effects and Heal over Time effects.
    Piety - This stat increases the maximum MP of class and jobs of the Healer role. It will not have any effect on Tank or DPS role classes. Piety also has the side-effect of increasing MP regeneration as the base regeneration is a function of maximum MP set at 2% every 3 seconds while in combat. The amount of MP desired by healers differs based on personal preference with some favouring a larger MP pool to have a strong reserve amount while others prefer minimal amounts of MP. As of 4.0 Stormblood, Piety is now considered as a full secondary stat, and has the same equipment stat caps as all the other secondary stats on all 4.0 and newer items.

    A couple more useful things
    • FFLogs Guide - A Basic guide to setting up and taking advantage of FFLogs when trying to improve your performance. This goes well with the next link on my list
    • XIVAnalysis: This is a website that will analyze a fflogs file and check for areas where you can improve. Some classes are still rudimentary, but normally even the base level can be helpful when trying to figure out how you can improve your performance.
    • The Balance: A decent resource for class guides. The Discord can be of somewhat varying friendliness and some of the guides can be aimed at more experienced players and may miss out on some basic assumptions that a new player may not know. Still, it can be a helpful place to go when trying to figure out how to play a class.
    • ACT Install Guide: This tool can be a bit finicky to get set up correctly (some of the permissions need to be set properly on the .zip files involved during the install process, if I remember correctly), but it can be a very powerful and useful tool for keeping track of things like your overheal, dps, hps or other tracked statistics. It can also be configured so it shows enemy HP totals over the in-game HP bars. The use of this software is a grey area, where as long as you don't abuse people and be an ass to people over parses the GMs and Devs have generally turned an aggressively blind eye to the whole thing even though it technically violates the terms of service. For a basic overlay, I use the one here which has been modified to show overheal % (so I can try to keep it to about 20% or lower and adjust on the fly while running a dungeon/boss). I believe that this is what you use to generate a log for FFlogs analysis.
    • Heavensward relic tracker: Keeps track of all of the sub-components you can do out of sequence or can do out of sequence on subsequent HW relics.
    • A Realm Reborn relic tracker

    They never really gave up on them, they just had zero intention of ever supporting them.

    They originally claimed they'd have addon support around six to eight months after the ARR launch.

    And there was this from an interview in 2014:
    MMORPG.com: What is the state of DirectX11 and add-on support for FFXIV? Do you know when we can expect to see either come online?
    Naoki Yoshida: So in terms of DirectX11 <snip>.

    In terms of addons, we’re still progressing on it but are experiencing a bit of a delay. We are moving along though, so if you could wait for additional information to come.

    I just remember YoshiP being against them for a number of reasons. Chief of which is stuff like DPS meters turning communities toxic real fast. And other things diminishing the point of the game.

    Even now their position on third party addons is that you do not talk about addons.

    I think part of it is that it also shapes how they can make encounters. If you look at fights in WoW, the expectation on the part of the devs is that someone is going to be running DBM/BigWigs and weak auras, which means they can make some weird shit mechanically. FFXIV doesn't have that to the same extent (ACT timers are a thing but they don't trivialize fights), and the devs can't allow for mods because PS4 players have no means of using them.
