    SE was trying to find out how to make content worse than Diadem then have the player base pin it on FFXI's content style, "This is why we didn't make a FFXI-2". Except, this feels more like a XIV 1.0 call back with XI gear skins and just shows the devs are really phoning it in.

    I'm a little unclear now, so relic weapons are, as of yet, not actually involved with Eureka?

    Oh they are, in a "hope you like grinding trash mobs for roughly 250 hours per job with less interesting content than even original Diadem" kind of way.

    And the party finder doesn't seem to actually work inside here... well, SE is SE I guess.

    edit: this shit is like everything I hated about xi and never wanted to be arsed with again.
    edit2: garlaige shitadel all over at this fate.

    You're leveling like in FFXI, grinding exp chains in party. Randomly your relic weapon tokens drop like Atma fate grinding.

    I only did it for an hour before heading to work, but I thought it wasn't terrible? /shrug

    The reward sure doesn't seem worth the effort though, I wonder how long it would take to lose my attention.

    17 months to avoid it running into diadems problems, and then they take everything that everyone hated about diadems and kept it. Why can't you just make this like salvage or nyzul or even fucking delve.

    This shit got delayed how fucking long and all we got were 2 stages of relic weapon that have the same exact models as the 290 jse. No third stage to implement new relic weapon models.

    This is pure comedy. I can barely process this level of incompetence. Yet there's still the usual shitslurpers praising Yoshida like he's the second coming for these meager, months late offerings.

    Eureka! The grind is on.

    Any tips in here? Got halfway to LVL 2, and EXP so minimal in here. Any tips to level faster?

    Party up, and do fates when possible.
    It's like diadem without the advantage of DF but you can do stuff solo'ish.

    They are here and will always be, I can't see this content staying relevant more than a week if they don't reduce the cost in crystals for each pieces of trash, or really increase the drop rate and the exp gained after killing a monster.

    I managed to get to Lv4 but goes its brain frying.

    hmm, the one I was in was about a 2 min run from the start area, I think I got silver, but I was dead for most of it.

    I would hope later on in the levels there's a little more variety to do, such as force-spawning NMs or other group coordinated activities, rather than grinding mob camps still except at a higher level, while at the same time yelling at the other two groups in your general camp vicinity stealing your mobs and fucking up the XP chains.


    Nevermind that someone leveling once in your group mutilates the XP you earn on mobs.

    Know what I actually miss? Dynamis, Nyzul, Salvage (well ok not really but it would have been fine)...

    Know what I miss only in a nostalgic sense? Merit parties.

    Why did it have to be merit parties.

    At least you could type to one another in merit parties. Eureka you're stuck mashing your rotation out on mobs non-stop to keep the XP chain going. No time for breaks.

    I've seen 2 NM Fates so far, one for the Sabotender mobs up near the Observatory area, one to the east of the map with level 7 krakens, and I've heard of a bear NM that pops by the level 10 bears in between the Kraken enemies and the Orchard area. Sabotender one will sync you if you're above level 4. I'm not sure if they're timed spawns or lottery type pops, as the one time I saw the Sabotender NM spawn on top of us we were fighting the sabotenders in the area.

    The Kraken one also drops a minion for what it's worth.
