    You'll notice it if you're playing FFXIV on a SSD.

    We are making the investigation and addressing of this issue a high priority, but as explained above, it involves changing the core structure of the EXP gaining method, making it difficult to address with a mere hotfix. Currently, we are aiming to address this issue with Patch 5.0.
    As a result, using this method for leveling would normally be classified as an exploit, but since we were not able to address this promptly despite it being a known issue, we will not be issuing any penalties for players who are leveling in this way. However, since this was not the intended design, we do not recommend engaging in this behavior, and exhort players to level in the normal manner as was intended.

    And the DF servers have always had a minimum wait time before it checks for all players loaded in to remove the safety barrier.

    JiP'ed into a AV today, in fact, it's been this way. If I get a queue that is join in progress, it's going to be AV no matter what. There was no tank(as always), and I went in as a DPS. I didn't even need any xp, just queued for the hell of it. First boss, obviously, often is, or Coincounter. Waited loong time for a tank, then one shows up and then bailed. So I left, got in my PLD, requeued, got back in it, and a BLM joined shortly after.

    BLM was terribad. No, not the iconic Icemage, an Icemage would do more DPS than this guy. He'd hardcast Blizzard 3, then Fire 3, and then hardcast every Fire 3 after that, til no mp. So big pulls were not possible.

    Still though, we cleared it. AV isn't hard to tank, just fucking do it. I had to suffer through main healing on PLD in Bardam's Mettle. There is definitely far worse dungeon experiences than old ass AV can host.

    Hang on, that Bishop AoE turret "circle" that it emits is the range of the attack? lol

    Today I learned indeed. I always assumed it just sprays 360 everywhere with a large range. Might explain my pitiful DPS when I tried to play machinist lol

    edit: now i need to be mindful when I am tanking with a machinist lol

    tl;dr: Yes, the Bishop's animation matches up with its attack radius. It is 6y (same size as Collective Unconscious), and is apparently not documented very well anywhere that I could find.


    It boggles my mind that anyone would think it worked any other way. Why would it hit outside of its animation? That could be downright deadly in open-world situations. Pretty sure it's the same size as Flash, so I'm not surprised.

    Edit: Bishop Overload is listed as 6y (yards? yalms? idk), which is the same distance listed for Collective Unconscious/Asylum (but not Sacred Soil, which is apparently 8y? Who decides this random shit?). Though the size of Bishop Overload could differ from the regular hits. I might test on a striking dummy when I get off work.


    Other fun things I noticed while looking at the AOEs listed on the lodestone...
    - Ricochet is 5y, but Rain of Death is 8y???
    - Most circle AOEs are 5y (All tank and melee DPS offensive AOEs [except NIN hellfrog], Shadow Flare, AOE Aero, etc)
    - The only other 6y AOEs I could find aside from Bishop Overload was Hellfrog Medium, Contre Six, Asylum, and Collective Unconscious


    UPDATE: I tested it on a striking dummy. Here are the results:
    - The turret AOE animation was larger than I remembered. I was remembering, like, the size of a Ley Lines (3y, apparently).
    - The turret refused to start attacking unless its animation could reach the midpoint of the dummy (though it could probably hit any enemy whose circle overlapped with the AOE, regardless of the enemy's midpoint)
    - The turret AOE animation matched exactly the size of Collective Unconscious, so the animation is an accurate portrayal of its actual attack distance of 6y.

    Sorry for the bad shot, but here's my turret, as far away from the striking dummy as I could get it and still have it attack, with a friend's Collective Unconscious standing right where I had my turret placed, with the edge of its animation lining up with the edge of his Collective Unconscious.
