    Shadowbringers is sending real mixed messages on how important FATEs are supposed to be to the game.

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    They're not important, unless you're working on relic weapons, or being completionist about bicolor gemstone trader items

    I am glad the Beast Tribe quests moved away from having you do FATEs as one of the daily quests.

    It's particularly notable though how many there are versus how many the game seems to expect you to do in Shadowbringers in particular. I happened to dip into the Coerthas Western Highlands a little while ago for some class quests, and at one point there were eight FATEs spawned at the same time. In Shadowbringers zones, you're lucky to see four. Most of Il Mheg doesn't even have FATEs other than that one big chain.

  • JavenJaven Registered User regular
    Yeah I think they just throw a ton of FATES in each zone because it's probably the most low-effort content ever, so why not?

    Most of the FATES probably just come from funny quest titles that didn't end up becoming quests.

    I did a fair amount of FATE grinding to level alts from 80-90. They’re really nice specifically when a bunch of other people are also trying to accomplish the same goal, but they fall off hard once you’re past the zeitgeist.

  • JarsJars Registered User regular
    doing them after everyone else has maxed out their shared fates is pretty miserable

    So I’ve been slowly working my way through Eureka, since I figure it’s content I havn’t seen and Krile deserves something nice and I feel like it should sorta be plot relevant due to *gestures at Endwalker*.

    Fuck Pagos. Fuck it *so* hard.

    Is there any class that doesn’t feel miserable to fight things with in there? I’ve been mostly just using RDM due to having access to a heal as well, but I’ve gotten hosed by cast times before when a mob repops right on top of my face and I get destroyed.

    The only relic questline I straightup skipped was Eureka. Super not my jam.

    Eureka is better than Bozja across the board in my opinion. I can't really think of a single thing I thought Bozja did better and plenty that it did worse.

  • JavenJaven Registered User regular
    Bozja is still the fastest way to level up from 70-80 by far, and maybe even 80-90? At least at EW launch it was

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    The main thing bozja does better than eureka is having fun boss fights that are often chain spawning with a little downtime to kill with fates between them if the zone's actually well populated, plus fun dungeons. Eureka is fucking boring 100% of the time.

    Eureka feels nearly impossible if you're new to it and solo, while grouping up makes it feel like it's merely a slog.

    Bozja is mostly running fates with whoever is around. Unfortunately it also basically requires a bunch of folks to get anything out of it with any efficiency. But it's way more casual friendly than Eureka, and that counts for a lot with me.

    At least a month ago when I was leveling some jobs, zone 3 in Zadnor usually had at least a small group doing fates. On weekends it could easily be 2-3 full parties.

  • LD50LD50 Registered User regular
    Speaking of Bozja, I really wish they'd throw delubrum reginae in group finder.

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    at least it does put you in a queue for it if you talk to the entrance guy, but yeah you might have more luck looking in party finder. I still see groups forming there for it, and you don't really need more than 3 or 4 people to clear since it scales your damage and HP up the less players there are inside, same as in the bozja zone boss fights and dungeons.

    Go visit people's houses and see if it awakens the desire for one in you.

    Houses don't actually do anything so it's something you can freely not engage with, if decorating doesn't appeal.

    and yet you still won't be able to get a house.

    *edit* I actually felt like doing some math on this.
    there will be, after november 5, a total of 81 worlds across all servers

    assuming the numbers on this page are correct: https://ffxiv.consolegameswiki.com/wiki/Player_Housing

    that means that worldwide, there are

    583,200 outdoor housing plots
    • 58,320 Large
    • 136,080 Medium
    • 388,800 small

    active player population counts vary; I think there are 40 million subscribed accounts, and estimates of actually active players seem to be around 24 million, with average daily actives hovering around 3 million

    so uh

    yeah that's some Math. based on simple numbers, your chances of getting a house are Haha Are You Kidding?

    They just announced a total sales of 27 million copies/paid accounts. This is cumulative unique accounts, not simultaneously subscribed accounts. Estimates for those is more in the 1 to 2 million range last I saw from Lucky Bancho.

    About 1.1 million *characters* have completed the 6.0 MSQ to date, so that's also including alts

    though 14 does not encourage alts in the way games where you make a new character for each class do

    Not for that reason, sure, but it encourages alts for different reasons. such as, it literally being cheaper to make a bank alt instead of paying more money per month for extra retainers.

    Also server/DC travel and NG+ are all still extremely new, so any alts created before that was introduced aren't just going away. Also to bypass the dumb loot lockout system for doing content with more than just one static group.

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    fair, most of the alts I know of people having are from pre-server travel for visiting/playing with friends reasons
