    in the rotation as it currently exists fire 1 is still an important button, it's what you use to refresh your astral fire stack duration during fire 4 spam so you don't drop enochian. Blizzard 1 is only used at 80 in the extreme edge case of dropping your stacks with 0 MP left, where you can cast it off natural regen slightly sooner than blizzard 3 to get a single umbral ice stack and start regenerating MP faster.

    Yeah I'm more saying that fire/blizzard 3 are what could get folded into 1.

    Just make fire 1 hit harder basically, and ditch the longer cast time.

    IDK what the hell to do with fire 2 though. Other than rebalancing all your AOE potencies and umbral heart generation to make it worthwhile past 50 I guess.

    Fire 2 isn't deprecated until the traits at 68 or 72 currently

    I love black mage but whenever I get levelled down I forget everything I know about how to play a videogame because the fucking st and aoe rotations change like 5 times each

    i am still quite bad at it though. I learned about the double despair fire phase you can pull off by using manafont and it blew my mind

    I made the mistake of leveling SMN while taking a break from BLM and now I can't get used to being rooted in place during boss fights. I ran a quick dungeon as BLM last night and kept dropping Enochian and hitting the wrong ice skating skills.

    That's funny; I tried out Black Mage for a while, and now I'm not sure if I want to go back to SMN and its super-long phase rotation.

    Finally got to 77 AST last night. These last like 5 levels have been such a slog.

    I've leveled RDM and is currently leveling Summoner, but I don't see why I would play either when Black Mage is still an option.

    Having the option to res people is handy on occasion, though.

    The thing about BLM is that the numbers are simply Large

    Oh, I got to use my LB3 last night in a Trial because all the DPS and the other healer were dead! I wish I could have seen it but Nidhogg was standing on me

    The most satisfying thing is to drop a caster LB on certain huge dungeon pulls.

    I use RDM LB3 whenever it's up in alliance raids, because turning the entire screen white and preventing anyone from seeing AOE indicators is hilarious

    I actually got to see a RDM LB3 used against Bismarck the other day, because our one melee DPS fell off the platform early on and having to jump onto the whale four times in total gave the meter plenty of time to fill up.

    There's a similar joy to popping it as AST.

    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.

    Finally got my Demi-Ozma today.

    BA was fun, I didn't realise how much I missed that style of raid until I was in one again. Last time was probably... Firelands? Oh wow that was 2011. Huh.

    Now to do it a bunch more times for cubes.

    Got AST to 80 last night. Boy all the AST outfits make me feel like a bad fortune teller.

    Anyway time to start on BLM

    I think BLM was my favorite dps to level, because it was just so fascinating how frequently its gameplan drastically changes as you level. I could see some people seeing that as a bad thing, though.

    The other DPS I leveled was Dragoon, which got a bit stale by the time I hit 80, so something different will be fun! I am not looking forward to those Roulette times though

    Going up as BLM is really fun but going into a roulette and getting synced back down really sucks.

  • SabreMauSabreMau ネトゲしよう 판다리아Registered User regular
    I think I've played too much leveling and synced-down BLM and too little level 80 BLM to consider the low-level stuff an unpleasant aberration to be avoided. Right now I'm leveling another one up and it's at 64 and I just deal with whatever spell set I've got at the moment.

    you're actually an excellent fortune teller, because every fortune you tell is "you're gonna do more damage"

    I don't like how DRG is steady until about 60 and then it just DOGPILES new job mechanics onto you the rest of the way. I feel like some of this stuff could be spread out a little better.

    Re-doing what level classes learn things is like right up near the top of my list of things I want next xpac.

    Some of them are just really dumb. Like forbidden chakra being mostly useless on MNK from like 54 or whenever you get it till 62 when you get the trait to passively gain charges.

    That does sort of fit with how it used to work; you built it with Meditation before a fight or when the boss leaves, and you get like one shot of it during the fight.

    Which ain’t great, but it’s an option.
