    My 2 combat retainers can now have advanced jobs, is that advantageous or should I just stick with basic job?

    Not any extra benefit on their own, but assigning jobs allows them to equip job-specific gear, which can help kit them out.

    Man that's a oof I could feel through the monitor (Crystarium Cul/Alc quests)
    Bethric who is mad about Amaro and has dedicated himself to caring for them finds an Amaro who can talk and asks "Do the other Amaro say anything about me?"
    And the Amaro says "No, why could they say anything about you?". Savage.

    For some of them you would definitely have to do it I think, like Scholar which only starts at 30, or Mechanist. Maybe not if they are something like Lancer or Archer? I think they can still use higher level gear.

    @Banzai5150 main thing to keep in mind is retainers are capped by the max level you have in the job that they have

    This can lead to some weirdness, for example if you have gladiator retainers, then level as a gladiator -> paladin, then swap to dark knight like I did, unless you go back and finish up paladin, your retainers will be capped at whatever your paladin was at when you stopped.

    Name another MMO that has stuff like this. Dance party at Limsa Aetheryte on Tonberry tonight. Note - I'm HARD display capped on number of players right now. The actual group stretches about this width further again, plus all of the usual Limsa crew is scattered around the rest of the plaza - just not visible.

    On Coeurl, there are regular performances by a group of 5-6 Bards just outside of the Ul'Dah aetherite... and they're good!

    So I hit Heavensward 2nd credits, for a few quests into Stormblood before I decided I might put the game down and let it decompress a few days.

    I now understand why people say that FFXIV is a great RPG that just happens to have an MMO element attached to it. That was probably one of the more entertaining experiences I've had in gaming in a good long while.

    Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to crank up some music.

    More of a small crowd if you ask me, all those lalas.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Preach finished Heavensward a few weeks ago. He says it's his 2nd favorite RPG ever, behind Divinity 2.

    Heavensward was very good.

    I have been tempted multiple times to buy shadowbringers just to keep the story moving sooner but I have held strong and just been leveling a bunch of classes to 60 so I’ll have some options on the 7th on who to do the story with

    In the immediate aftermath that's around how I was feeling, too. With some time and distance, it might get moved around, but it's still going to probably be in, like, the top 5 for me.

    Now I need to see if I can re-dye the duds that
    Tataru made for me into house Fortempts' colors, and then use that and Haurchefant's shield when I do sword and boarding.

    Took a screenshot just now, when I looked at it later I saw that creepy shoebill staring at me, didn't notice it at the time. Very appropriate given how it pops up through the game.

    I was able to solo pony farm fairly reliably, with a L80, i400ish (like 415) DRK.

    I still have to unlock Crystarium so I can get L80 Poetics gear.

    Can I start soloing the HW birds unsynced or will I need the ShB gear to do it reliably?

    Looks like Faerie. Aether DC yet again.

    Though who knows how long the stupid fuck will get in game? He bought himself a story boost and a level boost and wants to raid with some friends… and he managed to land his stupid ass in GM Jail within the very first hour he played because he tried to get a name full of homophobic and ableist slurs past the name server and the GMs took him to task for it (forced name change and an official warning on his account).

    If this is how Soda usually acts, he’ll get the banhammer before Christmas.

    I wish the collegiate gear was mix and match. I want the skirt and tie. I guess I could get the jacket with the tie, there are plenty of skirts in the game already...

    Uggghh. Faerie is my sever. Go away please.

    I have not heard of him until his name popped up in this thread , but I pulled up his channel on Twitch and skipped through a couple clips. He seems to project a certain image. Definitely not a streamer I would ever watch or support.

    dude was a big WoW streamer for a long time, then got permabanned for toxicity and claimed he'd never go back, then he did, then he got banned again
    he's always been a shithead, no idea why he's been so popular for like a decade

  • kimekime Queen of Blades Registered User regular
    Probably because a lot of people in general are toxic, so he resonates with them and they enjoy it

    I still have to do the last 3, but I found that so far it was best to do the bird fights with one or two others. Some of them I could solo, but it was so much slower it wasn’t worth it.

    So I went from a Cool looking Ninja wearing some Ninja gear I had picked up along the way. But NOW that I'm doing these lvl 50 quests on the ass end of ARR I've started to replace some gear with some upgrades. I'm still wearing my Ninja gear Chest that looks like it's neck was inspired from a scuba suit, but... my damn SHOES are these really horrible things, and as you stare at them, they curve the wrong way making it look like I put the wrong shoes on the wrong feet!

    I’m not aware of any issues with Preach, Pyromancer or Rich Campbell, to name a few I’m familiar with. Even Asmongold is a better person these days than he was years ago, if what I’ve read is correct.
