    I think there are decent odds that I'm the only male elezen in my entire FC.

    I toyed with the idea of using one of my freebie Fantasias to become a bunny but then I started playing ShB and found that I was too attached to my character to play anything else. A lot of that had to do with how animated our characters became in the new expansion. Besides, there aren't a ton of Highlander ladies so I'll still somewhat unique.

    I had 2 free Fantasias so I swapped to a bunny, then swapped back.

    They’re good! But I’m quite taken with my giant, shredded femRoe

    I did make a bunny girl alt just to mess around with, but never ended up playing her much.

    She has an awesome name though.
    Her name is Adorable Sapling.

    I really wanted to use that name after hanging out with Feo Ul. I was lucky it wasn't taken yet.

    I should play that character more, since I feel bad about having a good name and not using it too much.

    It’s comforting in a way to know that you’re going to die and there’s nothing that you or anyone else can do about it.

    I browse the forum almost solely via bookmarks page. I didn't realize until I got home tonight that there was another thread up. I thought the old one just got quiet.

    I still don't pick a race not because I fantasia too much but because I have too many alts and actually play more than one of them. But still, even if Viera can't wear most hats, mine can still wear this, so I glamour every headpiece into it because it fits this hairstyle.

    (I think I mentioned this reasoning before, but I don't recall if that was here or elsewhere)

    It should be illegal for raid finder to put you in O11, actually.

    Like a fuckin war flashback

    It's not a joke that O11 is harder than O12 casually. Larboard ho!

    I've always found 12 harder, though I have a pretty small sample size as I came in at the end of Stormblood and only ran it like twice before Shadowbringers hit.

    Basically when a wave cannon starts casting my brain locks up and I just panic choose a direction

    Finally finished leveling all of my DOL/DOH jobs, and I only need 1 more level on my AST to hit 70. Then I guess I’ll start the 70-80 leg for everyone, but it’ll be nice to be in Shadowbringers content across the board.

    Larboard is the worst idea.

    Not for nothing, I think, have they stuck to Left or Right for similar moves since.

    it's more than just the name, although the name certainly does trip people up. It's also a pretty fast cast, he casts it twice in a row and picks a side at random both times, and he spins himself 180 degrees after each cast which causes which side is which to invert

    The last boss of Grand Cosmos does the same type of thing, but fortunately it only does it once, it has a slow cast, and it's a pretty obvious tell. (don't be on the sword side)

    yeah the animation tell of which side he's holding the sword on is what makes his version much easier to me. Starboard/Larboard don't have any obvious visual tell for which version it is as far as I ever noticed, just a visual tell that he's doing one of them and you better figure out which one quick.

    As much as I'm calling it hard though I also think it's a fun mechanic.

    Also Omega is liable to get a cheeky hit because you'll forget it hits just a little more than 180⁰ after not doing the fight for a while.

    the real problem with starboard/larboard is that, up until that point, and outside of extreme/savage/ultimate type stuff, you're rarely at any real disadvantage for not reading the names of enemy attacks, so most players learned not to bother

    omega actually made my healer main girlfriend say, out loud, "how the hell am I supposed to watch the party's health bars, and the boss, AND a *little text bar* all at once?"

    fast-forward to shadowbringers and she's anticipating and shielding me for tank busters regularly because she's learned to look at the bar

    Ya dealing with enemy casts got a lot easier once I moved their cast bar to the middle of my screen and cranked the size up a few notches.

    Wrapped up Rak’tika this weekend (oh god that song is permanently in my brain now help me).

    May actually finish the story before the new year. Holy crap. I feel like I’ve been playing forever already.

    At some point I gotta go back and do all those raids and trials I’ve skipped.

    Any fight where I need to watch the action bar for attack names is pretty much poison for my ADHD brain. I'm already juggling too many things to keep track of. I only got through O11 by getting carried with like four or five deaths.

    easiest thing to do is set the boss to be your focus target, and put the focus target bar somewhere near where your eyes are focusing. This way you can see a cast bar start out of the corner of your eye and then look at it to know wtf is going on.

    I've seen a few streamers edit the UI to make enemy cast bars a lot bigger. I've been meaning to do that myself.

    Yeah, I cranked the enemy cast bar up, and I also set them as my focus target and cranked the size of that up. I occasionally get annoyed when random people in party finder are bad at reacting to stuff like that, but then I remember that the text for a lot of people is probably both small and not in the center of the screen.

    setting the boss as the focus target and putting the focus target bar near the middle of the screen is invaluable for me as a healer since I often don't have the boss targeted

    My usual work is just hit the "target of target" button, to target a tank or whomever is being attacked, and then heal them. I also have a macro to heal the target of target for just healing tanks while dpsing bosses.

    Having the focus target makes it really easy to just get back to the boss at any time.

    I enlarged the target bar, the target's cast bar, my debuffs, and the enmity list. It helps me notice when bad things are happening.

    I also finished the Crystalline Mean quests.
    I've known Skip for for day and a half, but if anything happened to him I would kill everyone in the Crystarium and then myself.
