    for the viera and hroth, we sorta
    know where they originate from in the first...is there an explanation for where they are in the source yet? or do we just assume they’re somewhere else
    They're just elsewhere.

    You meet a Viera one if you do the Stormblood Alliance Raid Quest line (which you definitely should, since you need to in order to get access to Shadowbringers relic weapons.

    Also the Gunbreaker quest guy is a Hrothgar and talks a lot about where he comes from, and you learn more from the relic quest chain

    viera are from dalmasca and hrothgar are from bozja. the resistance weapon questline is about taking bozja back from garleans, lots of hrothgar are involved. viera are largely isolationist on the source as well though

    ah thanks! i do have to catch up on my alliance raids, they’re so busy that i don’t really enjoy doing them much but i’ll suck it up especially since i just unlocked copied factory

    Besides, technically they're not even called Viera on the First. They're called Viis there.

    I'm at the final dungeon + trial for Shadowbringers now. Stopped there so I can do them with some friends tomorrow though!

    I already crafted a bunch of neo-ishgardian gear for myself (with some help from friends for the gsm/ltw/wvr materials I couldn't craft myself) so I'm feeling pretty flash already haha

    Yeah, Neo-ishgard stuff looks good. And it's current so you won't need to gear up for anything then.

    I'm still using my gunmetal-dyed back leather biker outfit with Anima DRK weapon glam, but yeah the 480 stuff is really good. Going to get a few accessories made and fill out the last two slots with Allegories gear, since I did a full hunt train today after reset and capped for the week (plus a couple hundred I got before reset).

    should launch me straight into being gear-ready for whatever high-end content my friends want to do

    the ranged gear will be going into the dresser when it's no longer current because it has a steampunk look (minus cogs) that I enjoy

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    Neo-ishgard healer gear is my favorite of them I think. They're all pretty good though.

    As of now, Patch 5.3─Reflections in Crystal is scheduled to release on Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
    But I'm not sure what this one's for:
    While we’re on the subject of future patches, perhaps you’d care for a glimpse of what we’re working on...

    Considering the game got a Yokai Watch crossover of all things, I wouldn't put it strictly outside of the realm of possibility.

    That being said I wouldn't really hold out any hope either.

    Yeah. This is not normal, nor should we be expecting the normal rate of patches in this situation.

    On the bright side, it does read like they have their distance setup fully up and running now so should make it more doable to keep to a normal schedule while dealing with the repercussions of COVID.

    I would guess they're still taking a productivity hit even with that.

    I didn't realize until just recently that, with NIN in dungeons, I could walk in behind the tank as they were pulling a trash pack, drop Doton to the ground in the midst of them, and then stealth to reset my Ninjutsu charges back to 2 before it ticked and put me in combat.

    Interesting. Most DoT effects trigger aggro immediately even if they have no up-front damage. It must be a result of it being a hazard zone instead. Granted, it's not really like NIN isn't already really good at mowing down trash packs - I feel like they're probably the best melee DPS at AoE?

    I guess because most other DoTs actually put a debuff on the target. This one waits a brief moment before doing anything to things within the circle.

    Most effects put a status on the enemy, that's what counts as the adverse action. Doton just drops something on the ground, so until it deals damage, you haven't done anything.

    Yeah, "Additional Effect: Heavy +40%". In the video footage (hard to make out at Twitter resolution) the mob takes damage and acquires the slow debuff simultaneously as it enters combat. Also, the "+Stealth" line pops up in floating combat text but the stealth icon never gets a chance to appear in the status bar because combat has begun, but it still refreshes the ninjutsu count.

    aurum vale is one of the dungeons giving moogle tomestones so it's got a slightly higher incidence of popping

    but yes, aurum vale is, a notorious one

    The first room of aurum vale is type of dungeon design that never shows up again and it's weird.

    Big open room with patrolling mobs just ain't this game's style.

    Yeah, that room can get out of hand because it's super easy to accidentally aggro extra mobs, and if the tank and the rest of the party aren't on the same page it's easy to spiral out of control.

    Easiest way to handle it is for everyone to just sprint to the boss room entrance while hugging the left wall, letting that one jelleyfish pack move to the center so you don't have to deal with them, but if someone lags behind a bit even that can get dicey.
