    If they change it back it'll be when they add in Ultimate Ultima 2 weeks into 4.3

    Greed only wouldn’t be terrible if there was also a guaranteed item each run or once per week of 1 item = 1 piece of gear of your choosing. Even with that, could make the greed only gear locked at 1 per week too (like it usually is when new 24 man is introduced) and keep the raid as dragged out as usual

    I'm a little ambivalent on the greed thing. It does get a bit irksome that people need on stuff simply because they can, when they already wear superior gear, some might of course do it for glamour, but I suspect it's mostly good old fashioned "I can reserve this for myself, so I will!".
    This does take away some of the incentive to go on tank/healer jobs though. I would have enjoyed an extra token system for the 24 mans.
    1 token per run (per week), 2 tokens for a piece of any sort (just to toss some numbers out).

    My issue with most people complaining about it is this thought that, in an instance that has 8 total drops per run and a weekly loot cap, people are just going to greed everything. That's not going to happen because people won't just take the first piece of shitty gear that drops.

    I see the logic behind it though.

    I'm running it as MCH, I see a piece of gear for MCH that'd be an upgrade as I didn't dump mendacity on that job, I hit greed because I can no longer need it..however joe blow PLD in full mend/savage gear has BRD/MCH to 70, a fresh 70, and decides to greed it too because it'll be a straight upgrade from his i290 gear, why should that be a thing? Shouldn't they run it on the job they want to gear up? They set the entry ilvl insanely low for that specific reason.

    I personally don't care, but I do see why people are complaining about greed only. Normally people try to hold out for the 'best' drop which makes you rerun it a lot, but there are those who just say fuck it give me this and let me gtfo if the content is shit, e.g people grabbed the first shit they got in Weeping City because people were(still are) terrible at it and no one is masochistic enough.

    Weeping City is my favorite 24man, it has the best looking gearsets, some of the best music, and team mechanics that actually require every team to not fuck up, it's great! But yeah people are quite bad at it lol. Anyway I prefer greed only so I can collect gearsets quickly for jobs I don't play as much. In the normal patch cycle, because I don't raid, I'm spending tomestones on AST and gearing RDM through 24man. That leaves all my other jobs in nowheresville gear-wise. I don't like running dungeons enough to get them the next best sets, and I can't really justify playing something that's 10 ilvls under my 2nd best job, so I just don't play those jobs. Having the choice to gear them with 24man items while people are still running it a lot, even if it means grinding a ton of runs, is something I would do.

    Of course people aren't gonna lot the first piece of shitty gear that drops, they'll go for the best ones. Meaning that you potentially have to lot against more people and all roles have lower chances of actually being guaranteed a loot if it drops (tanks always have it at 100% currently, healers always have to split, DPSes it depends on your party composition but casters have it worse). Unless a token system is also introduced this won't make people run these raids more nor improve the experience in any way.

    Maybe its a foreshadowing of the removal of the FFXIV (And FFXI) forums!

    ugh, too much to do. six relic weapons, namazu quests, probably will do doman reconstruction, ridorana, etc.

    feast or famine I guess, haven't touched the game in nearly a week since I finished my relics for this step. with school and everything I might have to pick and choose what I go for during this patch. although eureka 2.0 is supposedly coming out 4.31 or 4.32 so there might be some breathing room there at least.

    I'd expect eureka pagos to come 4.35. Unless you doing Ultima Ultimate you got time to clean up.

    Also we get x-server linkshells in 4.3 so you don't have to fret so much about pfer.

    errrrrr yeah you're right, what was I thinking 4.31 lol. yeah I should have time then. 4.35 won't hit before summer. and there are no tomestone/raid upgrades this patch either.


    we'll see how time-intensive doma reconstruction is and what the rewards are. I am genuinely curious.

    If last patch is any indication it's gonna be mainly for story, maybe a title at best.

    oh that's boring. well, at least the namazu mount is being teased as being something special, hopefully they follow through on that.


    I'm starting to feel more and more like I was on the opposite side of reality here and this patch is actually gonna be a bit of a lull, lol
