I stopped levelling WAR and SAM at 65+ because I won't have glamour plates for them at 70. Also because SAM is so incredibly dull to play.Yeah, people kind of jokingly say 'Glamour is the true endgame' in the FFXIV community, but in my case I'd say it's legit true. I'm one of those crazy people who have run certain dungeons a ridiculous number of times just to get a certain armor piece to drop for a new glamour outfit (I'll still say getting the Plague Doctor's Coat to finally drop was totally worth it). It's crazy how addictive it can be to try to create the 'perfect outfits' for your class. I really hope we get an expansion to the Glamour Plate system soon as it's honestly way too limited for the number of glamour sets I want to save.
I don't like this, at all. Hopefully someone will figure out a workaround, or (unlikely) they'll offer to add licenses.https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/news/detail/eb00facc2f6dc880aca78a9aa69d4dcbcf2c5f4d
Looks like Square is going to change how the Steam version works. Instead of being able to launch through the launcher file, like you do with the non-Steam version, you'll now have to do it through Steam directly.
You do want the tomes, yeah, but I'd first grab the gear. That's the more lasting investment, since it'll carry you all the way to 70.
Even with Platinum behind it I don't think Automata plays very well. The encounter design just isn't suited for it. I was extremely down on the game for awhile until I completely finished it. It's very backloaded and I think that's unfortunate considering the original game has a bunch of great moments in your first run through.
Did to enter the code for the full version of game into Mogstation?Anyone here playing the Steam version? For some reason my profile still thinks I play the free trial and I can't "install" the full version. Anyone had this issue? Google tells me various things, and I'd rather ask here before I start deleting folders or whatnot.
Yeah. I'm playing the game perfectly fine on Steam way past the free trial limit (and ingame it even says Stormblood). In my Steam library it says "Final Fantasy XIV". But I can't install it, so I launch the game using the free trial launcher.
Oh do you mean why it says "Final Fantasy XIV" in the library instead of like "Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood"? That's just how it is. The name in the library doesn't change once you buy an expansion.
Righto, thanks for the help.You do want the tomes, yeah, but I'd first grab the gear. That's the more lasting investment, since it'll carry you all the way to 70.
Assuming you're at 60 and haven't, unlock the weekly custom deliveries, and the scrips will start flowing in much more quickly.
No, theres a soft server merge/reshuffling happening in April. Some of the NA worlds are being spun off to their own data center to alleviate some congestion issues. All worlds will be able to hop in and out of all the remaining worlds on their data center with some restrictions (like fc chat being unable outside your home world).
I haven't played as Dragoon in quite a while but as a Bard I'd kite the fella around the tank to let them grab hate.
I'm a fan of the healer and caster sets in general, though I do use a lot of the All class glamour items quite a bit as well. Not too familiar with the sets for the other classes to be honest. I really hope we get more Glamour Plates by 5.0 though. I used up most of my plates for WHM/healer glamour sets, and unfortunately don't have any left for all the RDM/caster glams I want to save as well. Also really close to running out of space in my glamour dresser (though I think there's quite a few items I don't use and can remove from there).I stopped levelling WAR and SAM at 65+ because I won't have glamour plates for them at 70.

What bugs me a bit about FFXIV gear design is that they tend to be overdedigned... it's difficult to find even nice leather and cloth items that don't have a bunch of random metal pieces on them. I look at the simplicity of Dragon Quest outfits and wish we had more of that. Some of the Ivalice gear from 24man and dungeons comes close but alas, not dyeable.
i had that happen before but only with xiv, rebooting the game fixes it but i'm not sure why it happens.
I'd say don't bother going for any spell speed. I forget if it's because of increased MP problems, us having dualcast, or cooldown misalignment but SpS just isn't as useful compared to the other secondary stats. I usually do crit>DH instead.
Oh, no, the issue was as I (poorly described, I realize):
I think everyone in the quest journal image can show up if you repeat it enough (RNG allowing, of course). Here's a list from the Gamerescape wiki:
Not sure about plot-flagged changes though.
Honestly it feels like a zerg because you're running content that's recommended for item level42 when most of your party is item level 130 so when your mages have HP values that would've made base ilv tanks blush.
Oooh, that explains so much about how other players approach it.
Frag runs will get pretty boring pretty quick. Even Absolute Virtue is kind of a joke.
I can definitely see that happening considering how long it can take to actually get into BA coupled with each run being similar, but for now it just feels so different than what I've done before that I'm having a lot of fun with it. I might try for an Ozma prog sometime soonish, maybe once I get some more +2 gear.Frag runs will get pretty boring pretty quick. Even Absolute Virtue is kind of a joke.
I've been in a group that runs extremely regularly with usually pretty decent to good players and its funny how we'll get to spawn the AV NM with 40-50 minutes remaining inside the Arsenal.
With how geared people are you can run Ozma with the Coat/Osode and a piece or two of +1 gear. I ran a 4-1 Offense/Defense split and Wisdom of the Elder.I can definitely see that happening considering how long it can take to actually get into BA coupled with each run being similar, but for now it just feels so different than what I've done before that I'm having a lot of fun with it.

Right now I have a fully melded Vermilion cloak, +2 gloves, and a 4/1 magia split, and it's been good to me. I don't feel like I drop to dangerous lows with any raidwide AOE. Also I don't think the +1 gear is any different than other synched armor. It's the +2 set that has the elemental bonus that's useful.With how geared people are you can run Ozma with the Coat/Osode and a piece or two of +1 gear.

Don't run Platebearer as a DPS.
Absolute Virtue is literally doing the opposite of what he tells you and not getting cleaned out by his cleave. A shot caller should be able to carry you through that fight pretty easily.
Ozma isn't hard either. If you've done Weeping City of Mhach its basically that except there's now an AOE that can force you close to him and there are baby Ozmas that will do the same thing at the edge of your platform. Listen to the Shotcaller and don't fuck up Meteors and you should clear.
Seriously don't fuck up Meteors. And don't eat the tank orbs as a DPS otherwise you'll turn into a meme when your Spirit of the Remembered inevitably procs.
Good luck getting through 2.x! It's a lot, but then Heavensward begins!
