    Problem is every group is doing it differently. For example I'm used to be the only melee on T8 if there's another melee it's getting confusing for me. I also went with a group that was rotating The Avatar 45° on the right, was even more confusing.
    So yeah I gave up doing T8 outside of FC.

    A single 18hr venture always gets you 2k in allagan doodads (I think?)
    Doing a lv50 dungeon net each person several thousand gil
    Desynthesis pops out Clear Demimateria whose only purpose is to NPC for cash
    Roulette + Challenge log award plenty of gil daily/weekly
    Hell, I think I even saw them patch it so that CT?/ST? drop cash when each chest is opened now
    ... and that's just the repeatable cash you can get.

    Spread that across the entire userbase, and there just aren't enough gilsinks to combat inflation. It won't end until they come up with a reason for us to flush our cash. Repairs/MarketTaxes/OneTimeHousePurchases/RandomShitBoughtFromNPCs just doesn't cut it. They actually made it worse by making hunts irrelevant, since now more people are running dungeons again.

    If there was anything of significance to spend gil on the inflation might be an issue.

    But as it is there's just crafted gear that would have been useful before the patch it was released in, materia for relics, and vanity crap (housing, minions, bardings, etc).

    Advancing crafts cost tons of gil ofc but it's all rather circular.

    Craft to make gil -> spend gil advancing craft -> use advanced craft to make more gil -> use gil to further advance craft...

    I feel the same way there, but I know there are a number of people that "don't play the game to make money" and frequently live below 100k constantly. For them, buying food and potions is crippling, and the inflation there hits them really hard.

    Over the weekend one of my coil mates was like "I hit my new low last night. I got down to 900gil."

    First world problems.

    Unless you're clearing T12/13 the crafted gear is still useful for that extra push to get past T12. But yeah in general gil is mostly worthless unless you want a medium/large house. As Raldo says though even the little things like food/potions are ridiculously expensive these days unless you're a millionaire.

    Different complaint now, but one all too common on here. One of our tanks decides he's going back to his old static right before our scheduled raid. Kinda saw it coming when he cleared T11 over the weekend fucking us over last night. We let that slide because we did say to get some practise in PUGs before the next raid, but I guess he went and cleared with his old group and joins them fulltime tonight.

    Luckily though inflation is still fairly uniform. I drained all my gil with the new housing wards so I pretty much started at 0. Was able to make myself 800k in 2 weeks doing much more than leveling botanist and doing Ixal beastmen dailies / retainer ventures. Obviously that's a lot slower than most, but it still shows that it is possible to get gil at a fairly decent rate.

    While on the subject of Ninja.. mudra lag pisses me off so much. It's inconsistant and it'll go from smooth as butter to grimy as a shitstain from one ninjutsu to the next. Reminds me of why I dislike playing fighting games online since lag will fuck up combos there too.

    In all fairness, I miss Raiton from time to time >_>

    Anyway I agree with Lokus. I've noticed my Mundras are even slower to fire off now even outside of DF.

    ST today was a nightmare, I kept trying to Suiton to TA and was repeatedly getting Hyoton, literally the worst possible option, I'd take the bunny over that shit. Would drive me absolutely mad if it was in coil.

    Is Excalibur an European server? This might explain the lag if it's the case.

    "Clear party. No soldiery bonus please."

    I... what? If all you're going for is the clear, why do you want everyone not to have the soldiery bonus?

    It's not even that. Most of the groups I've gone with have used similar strategies to ones I've done previously. They always set out who's doing what when, and we go. The problem is people failing to do their tasks; forgetting to go into a tower, forgetting tether. Maybe they hadn't done it previously before or something, but it's not that hard to step up and do a simple thing like go into your tower. The problems I've had are people being consistently forgetful.

    All that still pales to the dumbest thing I saw over the weekend: So we start talking towers, and eventually decide on: "BLMs do Dread, and healers do Mines." Set 1 goes by fine, we down the dread. Set two comes up and only one person goes into the Mines tower. One stack, oh well. Recoverable. Mines pop, I as the tank move and grab the one on my side. I see one of the mines land in front of the AOE tower. I see one of the healers deliberately run over and pop it, dying instantly. We wipe soon after, and we all asked, "WTF were you doing!?" "You told me healers were doing mines!" "TOWERS! We were talking TOWERS!"

    Dealing with absolutely atrocious lag right now, and I'm not even in an instance yet. I can't even craft, there's a random 0-7s delay between each action.

    It's probably all the semen and fur from your server's notorious ERP community blocking Balmung's internet tubes.
