FFXIV: Complaints Concerning the Yokai Watch Event
Can the Dev team please make it so that just having the Yokai watch out for the event guarantees a legendary medal or something? I don't think anyone in their right minds wants to spend time doing over 222 FATEs (7, 9, 11, 15 x 7, and 30 x 3) across Eorzea for an Event. The RNG dropping for the legendary medals just makes it tedious. I spent about two-ish hours just getting the first one, and knowing that the last few cost 30 medals a piece means I might just be spending seven hours for one weapon. How is that in any way a way to make anyone excited to play Yokai Watch or even this game?
And just to get these probably post archetypes out of the way...
"It's OPTIONAL! Don't get so whiny about an option event you entitled baby!" --- I get it it's optional, the entire darn game is optional but that probably doesn't stop you from saying something about any issue you have with the game.
"It's just a ~bare minimum~ of 222 FATEs! Stop being such a whiny baby, there are worst grinds in the game" --- I'm well aware of the other grinds in the game, I'm also well aware that people find those pretty annoying too. I'm not saying just give me the weapons for existing, I'm saying make it so all that's required is 222 FATEs, is it really that much to ask for? I've got a level 60 character and I'm pretty sure after doing this event to completion I'll have at least quadrupled the amount of FATEs I've done so far.
"The mount for getting all the weapons is suppose to be ~special~! Stop being entitled when people have already gotten all the weapons/mount!" --- I'm aware! And trust me, those people deserve to be congratulated for such will power to do that grind, but fact of the matter is is this is some regular event stretched over the span of a bit over two months, by the end of it hopefully most people who want to get it will have it.
"You've got two months to do it. If you stretch it out over that time it's not going to be a big deal." --- I'm aware of this as well, but I don't know if anyone wants to take a few hours of each day (Again, like, 7 hours for one of the final 3 weapons means 21 hours total) to grind fates for it though. Some folks rather just get it done, and I've seen plenty of folks say that the grind just isn't worth it period.
"If you want it, work for it, otherwise you don't deserve it." --- Again, I'm not saying just give me the rewards of the silver platter, keep in mind a bare minimum of 222 fates just about doubles what I've already got in FATEs I've done just playing the regular game. To the casual player I'm sure that's enough annoying FATE grinding, I don't quite get why that's not enough for you.
And please, just as a last note, can we as a community just stop using the term "entitled"? It's so overused the word lost all meaning and it's not even much a valid criticism in the first.
Edited number values as I added an extra 15 to the amount of Fates, oops!
As someone who loves working with FFXIV's crafting system
I imagine many other crafters probably do this as well. If you can sell a 10,000 ffxiv gil item you most likely won't bother crafting and selling a 2,000 ffxiv gil item.
I'll definitely try to save some FFXIV Gil on store brought lvl55
Level all DoH to get cross class abilities. Level one DoH to 60 - you'll need to spend quite a bit of ffxiv gil on lvl50+ gear and mats for levelling.
Not at the expense of a 2 million ffxiv gil fixture that gets destroyed the second we remove it
Whenever a new submenu item is added, it gets added to the top of the submenu. Great if you're going by the "We want people to notice and use their new menu options" theory
Final Fantasy XIV: The cause of friction between roles has nothing to do with the roles itself
Have you played a tank post 50? On the second ffxiv boss of Sohm Al I can out DPS most actual DPS classes on the second boss because I can stay in deliverance most of the time
Final Fantasy XIV:Could a seasoned Dark Knight help this novice out?
However, beyond that, starting out, I think you should make sure to use Fending armor and accessories until you are truly confident in your abilities as a Dark Knight.
Ideas on FFXIV Old Content Acess
I have some ideas for accessing some level 50 content that with current duty finder matchups. tend to not happen.
