By the way, 30-50 is only 20 levels - 20 levels in Final Fantasy XIV ARR takes no time at all. Did you know, coerthas and north thanalan fates are fast, easy and quick exp to the point almost everyone does it for a reason?
Curious to how people are doing with Final Fantasy XIV leveling
I feel like I've been playing a ton since Friday afternoon... and I'm only level 55 (about halfway to 56). I see others hitting 58, 59 and 60 and feel like I'm doing something terribly wrong, given how much I've been playing. Also, do you guys feel like the 50 to 60 climb is taking as much time as the original 0 to 50 climb?
Actually, no I didn't get to 50 fairly quickly. It took over a month to get the first one. But that's because I'm not some basement dweller doing nothing but play the game all day every day. I know how long it takes to go through the zones, doing the missions and the side quests and dungeon grinding your way to to cap because I'm in the middle doing it right now. I've personally spent three to four hours a day (which is far more than I would usually play) and I've gotten to 54 so far. To get to 60 once, and almost do it a second time in just four days is a seriously unhealthy amount of game time. In short, shut up and go outside.
in other words you're just being a **** for the sake of it? Got it. You don't have to be a basement dweller to know how to efficiently use your time and level in this game. Let me break it down for you:
Challenge Logs alone give you well over 350k bonus exp. Sightseeing log for HW ares give you a lot as well. The Vault rains exp and is extremely quick to go through to the point it's hard to call it a grind because it's so fast and easy. Just because you fail at efficently using your time doesn't mean others do. I know how long it takes to get a zone too, because I did it to get DRK to 60 after I hit 50.
By the way, 30-50 is only 20 levels - 20 levels in Final Fantasy XIV ARR takes no time at all. Did you know, coerthas and north thanalan fates are fast, easy and quick exp to the point almost everyone does it for a reason? Throw in DD first room spam and AV runs, you hit 50 in no time. You're just extremely slow and butthurt for reasons unknown, but you do you my friend.
You say you spent 3-4 hhours being more than you usually play...guess what? 3-4 hours is at least 2 levels 50+ if you're going slowly and more than 5 at level 30+. Let me ask you a question.
What gameplay did I supposedly skip by doing my missions, challenge log, sightseeing log, job quests and side quests? The fact it took you over a month to get 50 when even yoshida stated it'd take about a week of 'casual gameplay' to hit 50 doesn't mean anyone who is 50, let alone 60 fairly quick rushed. The fact the new jobs start at 30 means you already start at the "quick" leveling from Final Fantasy XIV ARR.
When side quests give you 33.6k - 78k exp per and are numerous chains..do you really not see how fast it is? Sorry to burst your bubble, but in short: Take the stick out of your ***, learn how to level efficiently and you'll realize you don't have to be a basement dweller to level in this game.
FFXIV Healers should be using them frequently
FFXIV Healers should be using them frequently, but not recklessly. Yes, healer Limit Break restores HP which isn't too special, but it also Esunas all debuffs.
FFXIV DRK will follow shortly and every stance-dance will be the same
Doesn't seem necessary or especially fitting. Not horrible imbalancing either, but we already offer far more support than other tanks through being able to Protect the recently raised and through Clemency
Final Fantasy 14:I do agree the Astrologian animations are the best in the game
I originally leveled Astrologian to be my main, replacing myself as scholar in my static. I cleared all the current endgame, including Ravana ex on my Astrologian
The majority of these mechanics are simply another dps check actually
A second mechanic is actually in some of the dungeons and crystal tower 1 raid. Healers have to keep up specific npcs for those fights.
Personal Loot - Using FFXIV Example
For FFXIV, right now we have Poetics, (unless I stop getting poetics when I friggin start using my level 60 jobs *grumble*grumble*), Law, and Esoterics
