Am I doing it FFXIV wrong?

Le 12 août 2016, 09:33 dans Humeurs 0

I play almost everyday, and have done since launch more or less, but for the last few months I seem to be getting people that just don't care anymore, I mean the game has always had that as I'm sure all games do but its things like MNKs without Fists of Fire up at all, NINs without wasp/viper, BLMs with 0 uptime on Enochain, ect, (not gonna get into healer dps, cuz this is /r/ffxiv) no CDs on tanks, the list goes on and on. 

The problem I have is that when I FFXIV Gil point it out I am somehow the bad guy, I try to be polite but people always decide I mean more then what I am typing and I just don't understand how that can be, for example i'll say something like 'Hey, can you start using (skill) please?' and even though I'm in a expert/lvl60 roulette i'll be called elitest or immature, or just outright ignored, for asking someone to play their chosen class at a level 60 skill level. Is their someway I can avoid this confusion?

INB4: join a LS/FC, play with them, I have already tried that, all the groups on Odin I want to join are not recruting, the ones that are just have the people I am having trouble with. Same thing with making my own, the people I want to join are in groups already.

This isn't really an excuse for them, but I've noticed that the further into a patch we get, the more likely you are to be running in DF with someone's alt job that they're just trying to level or gear up on the side. And a lot of these people either know very little about the alt job they're playing or have run the dungeon enough on their main job to just go in on cruise control. (Not necessarily well, of course.)

Some players play their main classes 10 times as much as any alt, and while they may be able to handle their main without even thinking about it, they just don't have the time invested to have built up thay muscle memory for skill use on the other jobs. The missing persistant buffs are the biggest tell. They swap to a job they've played and leveled to 60 two months ago and forget half the abilities exist.

Takes a lot longer for me ut the issues are usually also much smaller.

As an example, last night I hopped on MNK and would occasionally go "Shit, no. I wanted to Dragon Kick there, why did I Bootshine from the flank?". Also things like forgetting how many Unleashes I can do as DRK and nearly dropping Darkside.

What it isn't is things like not using BoTD (Dropping it sometimes, sure. I'm used to 3-step combos) or not doing any damage on WHM.

For what it's worth, OP, I absolutely do appreciate it if someone points out I dun goof'd by forgetting FoF, poisons, or whatever. Rarely anyone ever does, and I usually either notice halfway through the dungeon, or after we finish. Level sync removing buffs that you still have on the synced level is one of the most annoying things in this game.

I can't imagine GMs looking at that and thinking it's ban worthy. If so; shit man, I'm sorry.

Without knowing exactly what is said, I can only really say, understand how and why people might have exception with what you say.

Perhaps to them (people in general) really feel the hostility in how the game works. Let's look at this as a whole. There is a lot of clamour about difficulty. 

Just read any post anywhere and Final Fantasy XIV Gil you'll find one that is recent enough shouting for harder content. This post in itself can come across as a call against DF bads, you even edited your post to express how this is not the case. Even still that's how people read it. It's not you. Really it's not. It's like a self fullfilly prophecy. The negative connetation has snow balled and are now expected.

So when ever someone responds or in your case asks someone to check their abilities it is expected; "Oh he must be elitist, I'm just so sick and tired of this bullshit. I just want to play my game and not have to answer to others. Fuck this guy."

So what do we do? I say we, because this is a community problem. What do we do? I have no idea how to cool people down. The sentiment is quite pervasive. I guess my only advice is, don't get mad or upset when someone else is reacting to your request. Just let em be and understand that they probably just in the mentality of riot.

 

In theory, spear is a FFXIV pretty good card, but in practice, it just doesnt happen

I would like to add that Spear is absolutely wonderful on warriors. Brings all of their cooldowns (Vengeance, Raw Intuition, Holmgang, Unchained, etc.) down greatly, and takes Berserk down to a /one minute cooldown./

Spearing for defensive cooldowns doesn't really do anything at high-level raiding. Tanks should already have their cooldown plans mapped out according to NOT getting a Spear. Shortening their cooldown isn't going to change their plan. They're not going to change their cooldown plan on the fly because their Vengeance came up 12 seconds earlier.

Spear in particular, it's only really a gain FFXIV Gil if they get an extra use of it because of it (enhanced or multiple spears), or if it causes their cooldowns to line up even more with their burst (extremely unlikely since most classes bursts are already tailored around their cooldowns either naturally or otherwise).

In theory, spear is a pretty good card, but in practice, it just doesnt happen

Balance typically produce the best results. More so when timed with other party buffs like foes hypercharge litany and trick attacks. Other cards require good coordination and timing of to make use of their full potential. Specifically spear.

as a bard/mch player: oh my god please don't give me arrow please give it to literally anyone else.

I am surprised I don't see people mentioning spear on smn. In my personal experience i get downright thanked in party chat by random summoners i give spear to- more aetherflow more bahamut more uberflare. I also sometimes spear ninjas, since it is nearly guaranteed to reduce cd on one mudra.

also spear is really strong if you manage Final Fantasy XIV Gil to line it up with the 6 minute cooldown stack but otherwise its pretty bad. pre-pull you're better off just fishing for a party balance.

This thread has been immensely helpful. Bokchoy, you wouldn't happen to have the math for the other cards/classes would you? If not it's no biggy I can do it myself, but...cheat sheets are always fun!

But for real, thank you, everyone! It's been a few months since I was serious about AST, and so I'm trying to get back into it.

Yep, to put it into context it FFXIV took us 8 weeks to clear A8S progression

That may be true but there is still a lot of hidden talent left on Exodus, all it takes is to someone to stumble across a player with potential. Also compared to 3.0 there are significantly more groups working on the final fight. I know like 12 statics at A8 that havent cleared. If people want to get better, maybe not up to the level of Nana's group, but still up there, they will. And clearing A8 seems highly likely for a handful of these groups, which is a big stepping stone for self improvement. Maybe in 3.4 we'll see a slightly smaller skill gap between the top groups and the ones under them. I'm hoping for it at least.

 

Yep, to put it into context it took us 8 weeks to clear A8S progression, the week after I got my pants we beat it.

 

Based on the fact they said, "We're going to make this as hard as Second Coil." and it was way beyond Second Coil difficulty, I think they're still stuck in a trap.

Simply put they have less resources, so they're designing raids that force players to stay subscribed rather then designing raids that are compelling, and interesting and cool.

 

If FF15 doesn't go bust, maybe we'll get lucky and 4.0 will be top notch.

 

I wasn't on Sargatanas before or during much of Gordias so I can't really speak for what it was like, but I can say that as of right now there seem to be quite a lot of active raid groups, or at least a lot more than what I was used to back on Famfrit and Midgardsormr.

 

Sargatanas used to have a huge endgame community during SCoB/FCoB. North Shroud and Northern Thanalan were always teeming with raiders before those encounters went into the DF, pugging people was fairly easy even up through T13, and the endgame community was in Buy FFXIV Gil general just a lot more social than it is now. Those raids were actually fun to help people with, so there were plenty of veterans that would hop into progression/clear groups to help out. Gordias was so not-fun that not only did many endgame raiders leave the server for Gilgamesh, but the ones that stayed stopped helping out for the most part. The vast majority of players were basically just completely devoid of the desire to go into those encounters after their weekly clears were done and over with.

 

I'm guilty of it too. Admittedly, I'm more on the casual side (my group is in A7S atm) but once I'm through A5/A6 for the week I look at PF, see groups looking for help clearing A6S and I say to myself "Ugh no thanks, no more stupid robits for me this week." During FCoB I used to love hopping into groups and helping out with clears/learning but honestly the Alexander raid tier just isn't nearly as fun to me overall. Gordias in specific caused us perpetual roster issues due to people quitting/transferring and nearly broke my static up several times (mostly due to sheer frustration with A3S). I dunno, I guess I just don't see the current raids as being nearly as enjoyable as SCoB/FCoB were and I feel that's negatively impacted the raid community on all but the most populated servers.
