FFXIV: who will you choose on teh battlefield
Its 6am here in between fights and I r bored a tad so thought I'd just put this question out there. Considering how toxic alot of people (myself included) have been due to the stresses of fights and stuff, thought itd be a little refreshing to shift gears a bit. But yeah, of the many various combatants, healers etc youve come accross...who stands out in your mind the most as that individual who goes beyond the norm (for better or worse) to get the job done? (and if you say 'yourself'...I'll shove an angry lala down your pants!) Don't be shy~ Set that ego aside and admit it..and yer reasons why.
3. Tempest Storm
Tempest- a paladin in healer's robes
I've a fundamental hatred of healers 1- because theyre never there in time when I REALLY need em (partially my own fault for going too deep to get that last 1% hp when Ive only got 2% left myself) and 2- because they're always getting in the way (how DARE you heal the person I'm attacking!) And while I wish to god for a No Heals Allowed mode, looks like theyre here to stay, from best to worst. Tempest Storm (whm) is on the better end of this, especially with those 12th hour pinch heals. But thats any decent healer on a sunny day. Tempest, however, has decided to get cute and unlock the White Paladin sidequest. With that Roesized snowman head and coat, he actually leads charges instead of backing them up, allowing him to stay closer to front melees. But its the way he eats/absorbs damage while staying at the front (and im not talking about a kiting style either.) Its a clear violation of the healer code and one day his liscence WILL be revoked for it. Til that day, however...
Shalua- cover of darkness be damned
While every melee has his own style, I find 3 most in Frontlines: 1- Those who put the team 1st and assist as much as possible, 2- Those who merely use the team as living shields to cover their entry/kill/escape and 3- Those who couldn't give a lala's furry nads about the team and fight their own fight, so to speak. While this last one may SEEM negative, if said person is on target, imo..its more beneficial than the other 2. Better than 1 because sometimes, teams just give up altogether and splinter, leaving each to his own devices...in which case a fighter who still stays his course is above the 'fairweather only' type. I've seen Shalua maintain his output in the worst of situations (as a personal rule of thumb, its those killers/hi-dpsers on the LOSING team thats a tell-tell most) when rest of the team didn't have a clue. But theres also the fact that hes doing this on bloodbathless-nin (no offense) without resorting to the typical ankle bitter/ 'heavenforbid you engage me w/o a healer nearby' tactics I see so much of. (cuz imo its in times like those that you really find out what someones job and skill is worth)
Khronor- advance of the reckless fool
This may seem like a diss, but really I can give no higher compliment. Khronor gets my #1 for a few reasons. He plays war 100% like I used to back in ff11 as mnk (with more vit/hp stacked than a koenigged pld) Its one thing to show up as a tank simply to keep yourself alive longer and pester a few healers. Its another thing entirely to consistantly shove yourself so far down the other teams throat, you couldn't retract if you sincerely wanted to (bow chicka~) The thing is, its a thankless job...and many many many times, I've seen him make a lonely one-way trip. In the event however his team follows que and backs him up, its an instant onesided zerg. As a whole though, the guy's got no fear whatsoever. Stands his ground extremely well. During my ambush days during slaughter where I'd hide out at the pads as nin and ambush people, hes the only tank Ive never been able to kill even once (plds...are squishy O_ o) I swear Id love to mimic his playstyle on drg but fug, just not enough hp/def ; ;
But anyway, those are my picks. If theres someone out there who inspires you to knock off your own stupidity and ascribe to something better, let et be known~
FFXIV Highlighting An Issue Within The Light Party Ranking System
For starters, I'd like to state that this is coming from someone who majority of the time deals with premade 4v4 Feast ques and matches on Chaos (EU) DC.
There's no denying FFXIV had problems
Oh there's no denying FFXIV had problems. It had a lot of problems. It had volumes of problems. Truth be told in many ways it was not a good game. I played on PS2 initially and eventually on 360, it was a terribly janky game
Lets look at the tome cap change problem - Final Fantasy XIV Online
Even in FFXIV we have something like that, its just sad the blue XP bar does have a max limit..
Nael van Darnus was built using a male Elezen skeleton in FFXIV 1.0
For what it's worth, a chunk of us made it to Fan Festival and Rocl flat out asked people when he got the chance. If I remember correctly, Koji Fox suggested that Yoshida field the question and Yoshida stated, "Man! MAN! Always man!"

The Path Companion that gives you the quests is called Gogo. And everyone will hate the AF gear.
The Main Scenario Quest includes so much of previous FF14 games
