[QUOTE=Mitsuma;51126428]Well, Alex Creator didn't last long. [media]https://twitter.com/ANGERED_FFXIV/status/781457845409775616[/media][/QUOTE] Neat that they killed savage, but what really stands out to me is their hot keys, idk how people use shift or crtl with keys past 7 with any sort of comfort, how do you position your hands? I use my pinky to hold down left side shift/ctrl and use my index finger to press the numbers, it's a a bit of a pain to go 7 and above

[QUOTE=Zelle;51126538]That soon already :dogwow: I thought it would take longer to beat those savage modes.[/QUOTE] Some of the banter between my LS friends were saying that they made Sophia EX and Alex Savage easier than previous trials and raids because SE wanted more people to do that content. Not sure if I believe it myself, the later normal Alex raids are a doozy.

They'd rather have a bunch of people running savage and having fun than having 10 FCs competing for weeks to try and beat them.
There is actually a theory that Alex Creator is a test for a possible 3 difficulty raid version in 4.0. So this would be the midcore step and an actual savage version on top which would be either Midas or even Gordias difficulty. Probably not gonna happen but it would be nice somehow.
[QUOTE=gbtygfvyg;51128330] Take your pick[/QUOTE] I forgot mice like that even existed, ive had only 2 side buttons on mine for so long i thought that was all that existed for some dumb reason lol

raiding looks fun, but all I heard are horror stories of elitist hardcore raiders so it's got me pretty well put off to even trying. Had a friend who actually ended up deleting his char and quitting the game cause of how a shitty static his friend got him into treated him

It takes a bit to get used to playing with a mouse like this but once you do you'll never be able to go back to playing MMOs like you used to.

It was just hard to meet DPS check with the gear available at the time (I've not done Savage so I could be wrong) and made Gordias a huge grind. FC's/Goons also seem to agree that the removal of cooldowns on a wipe helped a ton. [editline]30th September 2016[/editline] Also keep in mind FCs like Elysium are some of the best in the world, YMMV

In Midas, the DPS checks were made much more lax and the mechanics were significantly easier to pull off, but there were a [I]lot[/I] more of them that made it complex despite the relative ease of each mechanic in question. Saying they're "mechanically hard" is a tad tough to do when they're hard in pretty much their own directions.

I think that was the bigger problem with it, not much the amount of mechanics. one person dying or failing mechanics would doom the entire party, directly or indirectly, which sucked ass for progression
I really wish I could get back into this but I don't have the money to be paying for a subscription every month.
I made an FOV mod [img]http://i.imgur.com/ysgw3St.png[/img] [url=https://github.com/AltimorTASDK/ffxiv_fov/releases]Download + Source code[/url] :excited: This is against the TOS. I assume no responsibility for actions taken blah blah blah. If you get banned, go fuck yourself. :excited: EDIT: oh yeah and it looks like this [t]http://i.imgur.com/e2FohXk.jpg[/t]
Just notice that Rowena has a new outfit: [IMG]https://f.lewd.se/5fiIMK_dllhost_2016-09-30_13-28-42.png[/IMG] Don't know the name though, is it obtainable by crafting?
I believe it's via crafting. Also Rowena's a stone cold bitch... But she fiiine
The Las Vegas live stream is available for [URL="http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/8295ba3a939680a7ac6bc323302426fad9037cec"]purchase[/URL]. Those in-game bonus items looks cool.

[QUOTE=elixwhitetail;51133572][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/etPFcMj.png[/IMG] Oh for the love of god yes.[/QUOTE] Its kind of funny that 4 different RMT bots PM'ed me in sequence as I reported them. In the two weeks I've been playing prior to this being added I'd get PM'ed maybe once an evening. And I find it a bit messed up that my brother can't make a character on the same server as me due to character creation restrictions, yet somehow there is a steady influx of spam bots. EDIT: This might be common sense, but you should take a screenshot with the offending PM on screen for every one of these that you use the report function on. If nothing else it could be useful to prove they existed at one point if they happen to be making bots, spamming for a period then deleting in an attempt to wipe their tracks.

Anyone making money off of RMT could easily afford the $18 or so to keep bringing bots over from other servers.
Just something I stumble upon :v: [media]https://twitter.com/KAZITU314/status/782506161274695680[/media] The aquariums are freaking awesome. But they're so expensive...
[t]http://puu.sh/rvQWo/b69e8223c0.jpg[/t] chillin w/ the rmt bots
I can sit and watch the bots for far longer than I feel I should. It's almost like watching an anthill.
While I have yet to play any of the mini games, I will say that the Golden Saucer oddly makes me feel like I felt when I was a kid and we went to Coney Island. It gets the whole amusement park thing down. Then again, the only other thing I have to compare it to in MMORPGS is the "casino" in Ragnarok Online. Quotations because despite NPCs going on about fabulous prizes and such, none of the games in that are playable.
56 hoards sacks later, I finally got the Queen's hair. [IMG]https://f.lewd.se/KQRS8H_dllhost_2016-10-03_00-34-55.png[/IMG] I hate Palace of The Dead...

I still need to do palace of the dead.
Jeez, a whole shitton of leveling bots were out tonight on Leviathan. Its nice that they added a means to report RMT, but a quick means to report gibberish named people who, most likely through their bot manipulating data packets, appear to just leap to their destination would be nice too. I know I'm late, this is the first time I'm seeing bots that don't just spam and PM advertisements in this game.
