    to continue the last thread, at least I'm not the only one ignoring Aetherpact. I mean it's ok. I used it in the massive pull in Ala Mhigo and though I could have done fine without it, it did help. I guess that's the problem with it; it's useful and all when there's a lot of single-target damage coming in over a period of time, but how often is there enough damage, spread over a large enough timeframe, that the skill becomes really useful? it happens, but not much.

    today's complaint:


    here is how potd works: find portal. kill mobs until portal activates. use portal.


    here is how bads play potd: KILL EVERYTHING BURN IT ALL DOWN


    I have developed a technique for dealing with the latter idiots. it's called the "sit my ass on the portal and watch Netflix" technique. works pretty well tbh

    My favorite is when DPS don't use the DPS enhancing stuff. Like CMON.

    Nah instead let my bitch tank ass use that shit. Less effective but hey at least its not going to waste smh.

    People queue into matched potd with different goals. The people who are killing everything are probably farming potsherds/silver chests. Not everyone is gonna be doing fixed parties for those goals, so it falls to matched parties to agree on their goals (or incessantly fight about it as the people who just want levels don't want to farm anything).

    Complaint:

    Motherfuckers who still can't do Zurvan without wiping to seals. I get it, especially on Aether, that people don't know how to play the game or their jobs so it's very likely to never skip the first set of seals, but is it that damn hard to use your eyes? I don't mean "learning/clear" parties, I mean "farm parties."

    On the topic of primals, I can't wait for people to wipe endlessly on Byakko because of said inability to use their eyes -_- This game really needs to stop pandering and start teaching people, I know they'd likely lose a lot (more) players if you suddenly had to use your brain in progression outside of savage content, but I wonder if casuals will ever start getting tired of face slamming their way to victory.

    That'll never fucking change. Trying to get a decent farm on Sephirot is still a crap shot.

    Until you get votekicked for this (which has happened to me)

    And people ask why I went ahead and farmed 99x shinryu totems when it's relevant, cause pugs get worse and worse lol

    Was in Sohm Al to give my friend an instant queue as tank, we ended up with a BRD who never used Wind/Viper Bites on monsters, they would rain of death once as cooldown was allowing it during big pulls too... I am going back into my tanking mood and this is the kind of ppl I get in my welcome back party..

    Since you were with a friend I would've just quietly vote kicked (Coordinating via discord or what have you). You'd get a replacement pretty fast.

    hadn't thought of that. although I would argue that 95% or more of people are farming XP, so it's up to the person who wants to farm chests to either put up a PF, go with our flow, or do his/her own thing and piss off 3/4 of the party in the bargain. all good options


    not really a fail but: did you know there is still Steps of Faith drama? not final steps - just normal steps. yep. I would have been annoyed if it wasn't so funny watching people get worked up about this shit

    Farming Arboretum for a plague bringer's coat for my RDM. Seen every body there except that and the tank one in about 30 runs so far.

    Glamour - the true FFXIV endgame.

    this is not even a complaint it just makes me roll my eyes every time:

    why do people cast protect before everyone has loaded in? you're just going to have to cast it again.

    bonus points: in this case it was a whm who didn't raise me (I'm the other WHM) when I got ass-raped by Titan and kept casting Cure I, no Regen, and Medica (no Medica II)

    cause people are impatient and don't wait for protect before pulling in a trial, it's not like the MP needed to cast protect matters.
