Ya'll use any mods?

I used to use Gshade, but I switched to just using the GFE filters.

And ACT.
I use dalamud and FFXIV launcher. First one allows for the automatic updating of any mods I might use in the future and the second one allows me to bypass the stock FF launcher altogether including for updates and shit like that.

Makes it so that I only need to enter my MFA to get into the game, not have to type in my password and MFA. :rofl:

Tried playing Sage...it feels..weird?

It feels like they took scholar, got all its abilities, split them into 2 button presses, and took away the fairy and rolled its passive healing into a weak ass disc priest mechanic.

For example, to get the same effect as Adloquium, I have to press Eukrasia (which turns Diagnosis to Eukrasian Diagnosis [read: Adlo] ) THEN press Diagnosis.

The same goes for the copies of Succor and Biolysis. I see the cooldown makes them have the same effective GCD as Scholar but...

Double the work for the same output...wtf
 

Whojive

Such devastation this was not my intention!

Sage plays pretty damn fast, and solo content you are basically a tank

So @Jay or @the_antsy_honda have either of you noticed that the Alliance Raid roulette has gone firmly back to basically just being CT?

For the first couple of weeks of EW I swear all I got was the Ivalice, Mhach, or Nier raids, but now it's right back to just being CT.

I saw someone posit that CT should be removed from the alliance raid roulette and added to the MSQ roulette so it's not just Castrum or Prae any longer, especially since CT is now required to complete the ARR MSQ.

I fully fucking agree with that.

I just got out of Obronne Monestary from AR roulette and we wiped on TG Cid about 13 times

Honestly they should just turn Castrum and Pratorium into solo duties and just scrap MSQ roulette. Roll the additional XP you'd get from it into the other roulettes.

If they don't do that they really need to make the penalty for abandoning Castrum much higher. The last two times I've gotten that one like half the group left before we'd pulled the first mob. :rofl:

I had to explain TG Cid the last time we were in there because an entire group was all fresh and obviously hadn't watched a video or even read a guide. The entire group died on his second mechanic, and as you know that's basically a wipe.

I knew it was going to be bad when they all failed to show their booty holes to the sniper in the first encounter, full group wipe then too. :rofl:

Yeah that's the spot we wiped on repeatedly.

Another team failed the doom repeatedly

I was playing Sage so I was actually paying attention and trying hard :o

And to think, that fight, Ozma, and Ultima Seraph have been hugely nerfed since their original incarnation. I can't imagine how things would be in there now if they hadn't been with all the fresh sprouts and new Sage healers. :rofl:
