My ffxiv character has three fears:1. Losing her freedom.2. Losing her ability to use magic/manipulate aether. (And being an underachiever in that area.)3. Endangering/Losing a friend because of her own incompetence.
Final Fantasy XIV Zach is a coward when it comes to anything ice magic related
My character has three fears:
1. Losing her freedom.
How she copes: She goes to rather extreme measures to preserve her freedom, to the degree she ironically locked herself in a place with less freedom than she started because of her own fear of losing it.
2. Losing her ability to use magic/manipulate aether. (And being an underachiever in that area.)
How do they cope?
This is one of the things that she really cannot control. Her obsession with magic has led to severely deteriorating her health. She's aware of how self-destructive she's being, but she thinks "Well, I've gotten this far, not going to turn back now." To her, magic is her life purpose, and it leads to very skewed priorities on her part.
3. Endangering/Losing a friend because of her own incompetence.
It takes a lot for her to feel truly close to someone, and endangering them because of her own stupidity is something she is unable to forgive herself for. She has done this in the past, and even years later, she still has difficulty feeling plagued by guilt. She's not a very guilty person either, but this is a huge blow for her.
How do friends respond?
Only two people are aware of all her fears, but number 2 is the most evident to those who are closer to her. Her obsession is often met with disapproval, as many can see how destructive her behavior can be, even though she hides most of it pretty well. Her closest friend once said that he couldn't continue watching her destroy herself, and if possible, keeps an eye on her to make sure she doesn't do something stupid. Can't say many others have seen it enough to measure a reaction from them.
Will she ever get over these fears?
I can see 1 toning down, 2 has he possibility of disappearing if she finally begins to prioritize her life over her research, but 3 is bound to remain for the rest of her life.
My only concern for this is literal ffxiv gil farming for rare mats such as glaze nuts
This is nitpicking, but I just wanted to clarify your ideas a little more and throw out some case studies for consideration. Keep in mind, these are largely rhetorical. i'm not expecting a solid answer to any of these, but it simply shows how complicated it is.
Leveling Bard after getting 60 FFXIV Machinist let me explain my feelings
Stronger DoT effects, they get two DoTs that I find super effective and that in my opinion invalidate the 80 "potency" turret that the Machinist gets
Note is the Final Fantasy XIV Linkshell system
Also of note is the Final Fantasy XIV Linkshell system, which are basically private channels that you can join up to eight, and which offer a plethora of entertainment and connections
Significanly Increase Astrologian's Natural DPS
I've been playing Astrologian since it came out and what OP is suggesting is entirely unnecessary. Yes it does need tweeks but dramatically buffing the potencies of the cards by double or triple of their original potency is far too much
Why the changes Yoshi-P committed make in 3.2 are necessary
Gordias (Savage) is an issue due to the fact that this is the same item level as that of the upgraded Esoterics weapon.
Pre-mades vs solo ques can cause the Duty Finder to have an aneurysm
Pre-mades vs solo ques can cause the Duty Finder to have an aneurysm. It depends on the circumstances, but a lot of small and stupid things can cause the system to get mucked up.
