    Beastmaster could be neat as a Ranger job, using summoned beasts from some magic container, and a whip as a ranged weapon. The magic beast jar is a thing from Final Fantasy V, where the job was first used. If I had my way, you'd probably issue commands to the beast with your basic GCD moves, and then have OGCD stuff to encourage, buff, or recall your pet. I would want Dried Meat to be a thing you can use to buff your beast.

    But the fusion thing to become a beast warrior is also neat.

    I like how Gaius going golden is just, like, unexplained

    I think there's a small lore tidbit in a mount description or something, maybe, but in Praetorium it just comes and goes completely unremarked on

    I've started making jokes about him having a golden dye glamour and making an rp macro to switch to it when I run Praetorium.

    Same with Ultima Weapon making the :D face.

    You may notice, but the Ultima Weapon has a ROAR button that Gaius likes to press. It's really noticeable if you have the music turned off for that section.

    Maybe not in the thread where people are still going through the 1-50 story. I know Pip hit the credits but others may be working on it.

    edit: I mean he was right right up until he went full eco fascist there at the end.
    and also it was mostly a justification for working through his beef with Amuro, cause lord knows you cant get THAT boy to get off his ass without making a whole thing out of it.

    Pip side note do the crystal tower story while you're working on the ARR patch story, starts with an NPC in Revenant's Toll called Outlandish Man

    I'm not sure if it signposts you to it well, or just puts a big "go find this and do it" blocker in your path in the MSQ eventually.

    Watching the live letter, they're talking 5.4 now. Some of the stuff coming up:

    Class changes for PvE and PvP
    Blue mage to 70
    Resistance weapon upgrades and a alliance raid with no role requirements? (with a savage mode that's 48 player that requires premade parties?!)
    More DoH/DoL tweaks
    Phase 4 of Ishgard restoration is the end. At the end the crafting class that contributed the most gets a statue in the district (not sure if it's per server or what)
    Another unreal trial, didn't say what though
    Ocean fishing update
    Triple Triad update, revamping the rules and UI

    They're on mahjong now so I think they're winding down.

    I was hoping ocean fishing would be expanded upon

    right now it's only good for leveling and farming yellow scrips, and while that's nothing to sneeze at, I'm hoping for more

    Notably they gave "early December" for a 5.4 release, and said, at the current timeline, 5.41 hotfixes would be at the start of January.

    BLU to 70 makes a lot more content from the 1-50 slog solo-able. That way I could unlock a bunch of skills I am missing. I like the prospect of BLU becoming more and more solo-friendly sidecontent.

    Mostly looking forward to both Eden 9-12 as well as Emerald Weapon. I can at least understand those. I never got into Eureka or anything like that so this whole Bozjan Southern Front thing sounds like an overly crowded complex thing that I'm not sure how to approach.

  • JavenJaven Registered User regular

    The first half of Eureka is rough but the second half is improved enough that I'm honestly looking forward to what they've been able to do with all the lessons and feedback during the subsequent 2+ years of dev time

    Have they given any details about the Bozja raid? All I know is that there's 2 difficulty levels with different amounts of people. Specifically did they say if this was going to be anything like BA from eureka? I really liked how different that place was from a normal raid and would love if this new one was just as experimental.

    the raid isn't happening until 5.45 so we're not getting any more details for a while
