The Leading FFXIV Gil Seller - Uffxiv.com!

Anyways, that's my two cents and a nice chunk of text, tanks denying full clears and parties kicking for squabbles is nothing new in the FFXIV Duty Finder

Parties kicking for squabbles is nothing new in the FFXIV Duty Finder

The tank isn't not tanking, they just aren't pulling avoidable mobs. The tank being there is the reason that everyone is in the instance and not waiting in queue still, as long as they are moving the group through trash and managing bosses, they are certainly doing their job, even if they skip a few optional mobs. Should the tank have adapted to the group? Ideally, yes, or at least communicated and said something like "I'm in a bit of a hurry, let's skip them please."

 

I also find it's often better to state your intentions at the beginning of the run, while everyone's attention is usually on the chat box for greetings and such. "Full clear please," or anything similar, gives the tank the idea that you'd enjoy as much XP as possible, but be realistic and don't expect a random to bend over backwards for you. If you don't like that, you can kick them or drop the party, but then you're stuck waiting, gaining no XP when you could have sucked up the loss of maybe 20-30k FFXIV Gil and ran with a hasty tank.

 

I don't encourage DPS to pull mobs at all, as a healer I always feel stuck in the middle. When you pull mobs, you take damage. If the tank doesn't pick mobs off you, I have to heal you or watch you die. If I heal you, I get 2-3 mobs on my face, then I might die. Or, the tank may not notice, grab another pack, and then we have two or more packs to deal with. If you keep putting the party in compromising positions, I'm not going to stay and keep picking up your messes. I'd rather the tank pulls what he wants to pull, and if you have a problem with that, that's a dispute between you and the tank (see above, don't expect the world from randoms).

 

As far as the kick itself, I quoted Rami's too true words, kicks are seen by Square Enix as a viable solution to player disputes and differences in playstyle. It lists very specific criteria for kicking a party member, and "Get this adventurer out of my hair because I don't agree with them," is not one of the options. And yet, that's what we are encouraged to use it for. The players technically did nothing wrong by dismissing you, despite improper use of the vote kick.

 

Anyways, that's my two cents and a nice chunk of text, tanks denying full clears and parties kicking for squabbles is nothing new in the FFXIV Duty Finder. Better luck next time, plenty of tanks are willing to go the extra mile and help you out. Just don't be put off by the one's that don't.

FFXIV Gil prices and sales

Here's the real kicker though. FFXIV Gil prices and sales, you're rewarding the gil spammers. I don't know about others but most raids I know has 1-2 'dedicated' crafters who have ffxiv gil, the rest of my raid depends on food/potions from those people and can barely afford that in 3.0, let alone have enough to buy materia also.

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!"

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

I just switched to Warrior from Dark Knight for my current static

One thing though is I probably would go with 15000 if your healers/static is brand new to A1s until everyone gets their bearings, then go more Strength from there.

Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Bard vs Dragoon

As far as PvP goes, Bard is kind of the Sniper class of FFXIV. You don't move anywhere close to the front lines of a skirmish. Because of WM and the skills gated behind it

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.
