    The thing that really baffles me is how gear gets in my bags. I pretty much pass on everything in low level dungeons. And yet somehow I still find random pieces of armor in my bags after the run, even if I 100% pass on everything. They need to cut that out.

    That's because leveling dungeons automatically give you a piece of gear for your spec when you finish them. That and materia are the only things that'll get shoved in your bag without rolling.

    We don't want them to cut that out.

    And crafting mats, and dyes, and clear crystals for making glamour prisms/dispellers out of except everyone just buys those in bulk from the GCs now

    I mean, a toggle to prevent auto-loots would be a very reasonable request.
    While it'd be doable to implement, people would turn it on while running trivial content and then forget that they turned it on and run their wing of Savage for the week and not get their guaranteed book drop or run the alliance raid and not get their coin equivalent for the week and be unable to get another until the following week.

    As far as I'm aware, in FFXIV there is literally no gear that you can't get again if you get rid of it and later do want it.

    I've actually seen a glam on some dude that I looked up that said it was removed, but I can't remember the name of it. I thiiink it may have been a leveling quest reward that they got rid of and didn't put on any vendor for whatever reason.

    The Makai accessories are unobtainable if you threw them out, I think.

    Everything else shows up on the salvager, but not the right side stuff.

    It REALLY sucks that if I disconnect when I'm 100th in the queue, i can reconnect real fast and get put back in the queue.

    But if I disconnect once I'm in the game, regardless of how fast I get back, it boots me out and I'm back in a 2k person queue.

    Yeah. With the other fixes they've done "reconnect to existing session" is the biggest thing missing from FFXIV's network tech. Unfortunately, it's also prolly a big one.

    Yeah the 90006 errors have absolutely been worse since the maintenance, and fucked with a LOT of peoples week 1 progression.

    We start raid at around 10:30 PM EST, and I basically cannot double weave at all for the first 40 minutes to an hour until it gets to slightly less peak hours.

    Considering using xivalex (or whatever the anti latency plugin is) just cause it's so tilting.

    I don't think I've waited in a queue for more than a couple of minutes since, like, Christmas. Did they get more servers, or are the player counts more reasonable because people are logging in at various times rather than every single day after work, or because new people bought the game and expansion before release but fell off fast because they were just riding the "latest new release" hype but didn't stick, or what?

    Maybe I've been logging in at late hours myself, looking at the clock right now.

    Installed both it and the quick launcher to mess around with, good god the difference is noticeable right away.

    Only issue I'm having is that now the game freezes after I exit (I log out fine, just have a random black ffxiv window that I need to kill in task manager), but honestly willing to deal with that for now (looking at the issues page on github has a few others reporting the same thing, with no consistent solution yet).

    I think population has just been smoothing out. I still see big queues (well, I don't because I log in before 9AM every day, but friends I play with do) right around 5-8PM.

    It also feels like getting through the queue has been faster too. Lately a queue of around 1500 is about 45-60 minutes to get through where as a few weeks ago that would have been at least 90 minutes. I've also been noticing that once you hit under 200 you'll sometimes get in as part of a wave as opposed having to wait for it to tick down to 1.

    Yah I think people are just generally playing less, so the queues are smaller when you get in them and empty out quicker as people log off for the day.

    Did a pseudo healer-less run of the level 90 MSQ dungeon on WAR where my friend on Sage didn’t use a single heal for trash aside from Kardia. I wall pulled the whole thing and most of them didn’t even feel spicy.

    It feels like how the game probably plays when your internet is inside a japanese data centre, aka how the devs seem to think it plays for everyone, lol.

    I'm on Sarg and if I try to log in after about 5pm US EST any day, the queue is at least 1500.

    Which sucks because evening time is my play time. But at least I'm catching up on rewatching Witcher so the new season makes sense.

    It's pretty annoying when you need two doodads for crafting something yet everything on the MB is stacks of 99.

    Sure, I could buy a stack, use what I need and relist it, but eh, bother. In most cases I'll just teleport to wherever and do 30 seconds of gathering myself.

    I lucked out so hard when leveling a culinarian to 50 several days ago - almost all the HQ recipes required for the class quests had 1 or 2 items listed for 300 gil and a bunch of single stacks going for 29K.

    Currently I am trying to get all the crafting classes to 50 just to get rid of the low level crafting gear cluttering my armory.

    My static's start time is basically ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ because I'm not WFH. If you're on PST and work normal-ish hours, queues are still pretty bad.

    I really like the look of this armor:

    It's the level 88 healing set. The Ophiotauroskin set. I'm sure there's probably an "of casting" version too.

    Pallet-swapped Neo-Ishgardian. It's a good group of sets.

    ...and when you are done with that; take a folding
    chair to Creation and then suplex the Void.

    Oh, there's an ishgardian version? I haven't seen it before. But yeah. It's got a lot of good subtle detail for just being a leveling set. I really like it.

    Nah, that's just the name it was given because it was vaguely Ishgardian themed. The original was a 5.2 endgame crafted set.

    they usually seem to release digital albums a few months after the physical media releases

    Yeah, I'm leveling all crafters at the same time so they're all around the same level so I can use the same gear set. Currently got them all at 53+ and using the level 50 GC crafting set, and going through the class quests one by one to get their level 50 main hand tool.

    This reminds me a lot of Cloud's purple dress from FFVII. (Though upon Googling, it's not that close.)

    It should just be "Neo-Ishgardian" etc.

    Oh! I didn't realize that was the actual name. I thought that's just some sort of community name for it since it has a vaguely Ishgardian look to it.

    Right, Neo-Ishguardian Top of Aiming, turquoise green dye. Boots are Bonewicca.

    Yeah, that's veeeeeery similar to the one I'm wearing.

    It's hard to tell from your action poses, but I think the front is symmetric and fully open in the front, whereas the one my character is wearing is asymmetric and covers one leg more than the other. Both are very cool looking sets.

    The Fending version has one arm armored, I think.
