    Just practice really. If you're doing a fight you're new to you're not likely to perform perfectly since you're still picking up intricacies of the fight. Eventually your combos and buff/debuff applications will kinda just fall to muscle memory and you won't have to think too much about them and can focus more on fight mechanics or maximizing your DPS. Dunno what class you're playing but if it's NIN then I had similar issues when I initially hit 50 despite having played MNK a ton in the past. Juggling Trick Attack and Kassatsu in to the rotations you've been using up til 50 just takes some getting used to (and familiarity with fights to maximize their use), there's no real shortcut to getting better at it other than just... playing the class some more until you get used to it.

    I guess what I mean is I screw up my rotations way more than I'd care to admit. I can do fine on training dummies but in other fights... my parse last night was pathetic.

    Get used to the game, get used to the job, get used to the fight.

    pretty much this, the more comfortable you are, the higher your dps. just keep on practicing till you basically can do rotations with eyes closed.

    Quick question since I Just came back as well after 6+ months. What can I do with all of my coil1 gear once I upgrade to to the new 100+ stuff? Can It be upgraded to a higher item level? Turn it in for tombs? Just hold onto it with the hope of being able to do something with it later?

    Save it for Desynth, Glamour, turn it in for GC Seals, give it to your retainer for ventures. That's about it.

    Can you enter lower dungeons without your level getting lowered?

    Short answer is no. Long answer is "We are looking into it." They still don't allow you to queue for Duty Finder with your chocobo out...

    They've even just begun placing an ilvl cap/syncs on older lv.50 dungeons to keep people from powering through them too quickly. I would really like the ability to face-roll ancient content as a lv.50 by myself for glamour reasons but game design has made collecting old gear sets a huge pain in the ass.

    Exactly. After coming back I thought doing Copperbell Hard/few other lowbies to get better gear would be the way to go but with tomestones it's generally better to just do them until you get weathered gloam from my experience.

    EDIT: Speaking of Copperbell hard. Is there any surefire way to dodge the final boss's AoEs? Still managed to get hit by them even when I ran like hell away from them the moment I saw the ring...

    That shit is almost unavoidable, I think I've only managed to avoid it when I was already moving when the aoe marker appeared.

    I'm starting to believe that since even with a VPN that SoB manages to get me.

    I'm pretty certain you have to already be moving to avoid that bullshit, no matter how great your latency is.

  14. #74

    Yeah I can confirm that. Every time I'm moving (usually to get crystals for sand worm... why?!) I can dodge it. Moment I"m actually trying to put some DOTs up I get smacked hard. May as well just take it like and keep DPSing I suppose.

    I know the Aetherial equipment can get up to three random stats, but are the stat boosts themselves static? I have an Aetherial Cotton Robe with +5 Spell Speed. Will it always be +5 if it gets Spell Speed on it?

    Nope. At the same time though it only matters for twinking in 30 cap or 40 cap PvP.

    Quick hunt question: Do the tome rewards you get on A/S ranks only apply if you kill that mob when it's your daily/weekly? Or will you obtain them regardless.

    Also on the note of allied seals do I have to do anything to obtain the i100 gear? According to XIVDB the i100 seems to be around the same price as the i70 gear. XIVDB not updated?

    A/S ranks are not daily/weekly, so you get tomes regardless. I don't do hunts really, but that's what I noticed
    B ranks (weekly) and the rest (daily) rewards no tomes

    The i70 gear is more or less for vanity purposes. A point to note that if you change companies they'll become...invalid (unwearable/vanityable (i think))

    You can buy the i100 stuff just as soon as you have enough seals. The i70 shit is as-expensive (or moreso) because its only purpose is vanity.

    After getting into hunts, are there any linkshells that re built around forming groups for hunts and whatnot? Found out the hard way trying to do them solo is about as effective as a level solo: Absolute crap.
