Even with cutscenes on, I'm sure that with a level 70 tank trash mobs will die fast enough so you don't have to worry about the timer running out in the middle of another cutscene.
Now I just need a tank at 70 to do it.
>>
>>386963285
Assuming you're playing all three optimally, probably tank. Outside of very specific tank mechanics it's pretty damn easy. You can play DPS sub optimally and most people won't even notice though so there's that.

It was a joke. You're not hitting 97th percentile with susano weapon unless you were just fed every dragon sight/balance in the game while landing nonstop crits. Also you can technically do minimum ilvl still.

you can literally soloheal yourself while your healers go to town, only tossing you the occasional regen/ogcd

sacrifice the dps of one to increase the dps of two
>>
>>386965326
And an Eos can solo heal you as well.

One Clemency over Holy Spirit is a bigger DPS loss than one extra Broil, Stone, or Malefic gains you.

There is always a best rotation to everything, but you can go free style if you want and don't mess up that much.
Note that there is a combo system, where skills get better output if you used an skill before that was chained to it.

>>
>>386978965
Nope. You still want materia (red) or mats (yellow)
>>
>>386979019
The base class Arcanist is two summons. A yellow (tanking) and blue (ranged DPS) Carbuncle. Summoner updates them to two bosses (Titan for tanking, Garuda for ranged) and summoner gets a third, Ifrit (melee DPS). They do look nothing like the bosses and indeed like shit. They are small crystal creatures with the vague shape of those they represent.

However you can change them into Carbuncle. There's even a red one. Also a small Bahamut that uses his model is aother summon, but will leave after a few seconds.

Zhloe is limited to 180 * 6 reds per week, though. Plus, I hope cash is not your only purpose as a crafter.

Really doesn't sound like much, now with the new gear especially.

>>386980340
I also use it for interior decoration too, and other things that are useful depending of the patch like relic steps.

I was a "casual" crafter in HW, I only leveled my crafters for interior decoration, and I never liked how bullshit RNG was back then. I had AF2 on my CRP, but I mostly worked on decoration and popular materials for easy cash. The popular Rath's macro was able to hit 100% HQ but relied on RNG skills to do so (lots of 90% chances), so it was possible to miss that last 10% on the hardest recipes, and XIV's NQ/HQ calculation fucking love that 10%. Everyone on my FC cried about it so I decided to stay as a decoration crafter.
But right now you can easily 100% stuff even with shit melds thanks to these new skills. Prudent Touch and the new Manipulation are OP as fuck.

DRK and AST, maybe WHM if you prefer holy and rocks over stars and cards.
If you are a scythefag, consider WAR because they will get an edgy scythe in a future update (DRK too, but it probably will look pretty stupid because of DRK's animations being designed with swords in mind).

Do only tanks/healers get tentacles in O2S or one DPS (so Healers + OT + DPS) too? Never had it so I wouldn't know. There's always one saying "DPS tentacles N/S/E/W" so I guess that means yes.

Also is it just me, or is no group ever on the same page with positions? Ignoring tentacles, I see people in a group always:
>only claiming -100g spot
>only claiming long drop spot
>claiming a spot without saying for what mechanic
>sometimes claiming both mechanic spots, which everyone should do
Then again, I don't really know if tanks/healers get that AOE debuff for log drop, or only the four DPS. The more I think about it, the more I read that one guide over and over, the more confusing it gets.

OP here, can't believe this thread has been up for hours. Anyway, I tried GLD and RDM while I have been gone, wasn't too fond of either of them. I might try Archer next, I think it's almost the last thing for me to play other than healer classes. I really don't like having to pay too much attention.

You can just wait for them to fly away and soak the ultimate as a tank or shield through it as a healer. As DPS you can kill Suparna or Chirada before they get that Vulnerability Down as it's not immediate.

Leveling DRK, haven't tanked before. How do I know what counts as magic damage for Dark Mind? Does anything with a cast timer count or what?
>>
>>387008364
Not all of the old Primals can be beaten alone even when doing them unsync so take a friend or two with you. Some can still be tricky like Ifrit where you have to watch your DPS. Depending on how you are geared, you could all go in as tanks and work towards the tank mounts and your horses.

And that GM sounds like me, I couldn't be bothered to play catch up in HW. I wanted to do more in Stormblood but a few days ago I threw away my remaining raid tokens as the thought of doing those repeatedly / weekly sent a shiver down my spine.

This info might be outdated but you should look at the battle log.

>>
>>387008943
No. There is no guaranteed way to know other than comparing battle logs with and without Dark Mind. In general it's common sense: stuff that's fire, electricity, laser beams, etc, will be magic damage. But sometimes that's not true and sometimes what seems like magic is 'Darkness' which means it's unmitigable.

Most attacks with a cast bar and that look like "magic" (Dark Firaga VII instead of Dork Hack'n'Edgy, for example). Dark Mind something that only works well if you already know the fight, it's not a very intuitive mechanic.

On top of this, most tanks won't leave their DPS stance after a provoke because they're expecting a shirk in return.

Even on DPS you'll get bitched at if you don't use diversion and lucid dreaming cause MUH TANK DPS and then you get the real shit tanks who will still get aggro ripped from them after diversion is used

Yeah that's what I was thinking was the case since my only other times using pots were as MNK/NIN in Creator. The other tank in my group is a WAR who doesn't use pots so I didn't really have anyone to correct me on that front but seeing how this group has only been active for two weeks now I suppose it's better we got shit like this figured out earlier rather then later, should help with ExDeath and Halicarnassus being a little less dicey going forward now that I'll know which pots to really bring.

TBN, Vercure/Verrraise, and everybody having aggro tools I think are steps toward more hybridized party roles, which in turn enables more interesting healers.

So is it literally impossible to kill people in PvP unless you're a machinist/bard, or what's the deal with this?
Fights are two amorphous masses of people colliding at eachother while undergoing plastic deformation- and death comes via attrition or being out of position and getting mobbed; I'm trying to play a caster and I can't land anything, people dance out of my range and break casts all the god damn time- meanwhile BRD/MCH have skills of similar potency but are instant-cast. I don't see how this is possibly balanced.

No, you you can kill anything with good placement.
in 72 man, ranged are of course advantaged, this has always been a thing in all mmo with massive fights.
But in 24 man (which are fairly rare nowadays sadly and I wish SE would implement a mode with just it) melee have a very fun time (pic related)

Also you need to get fucking good on your BLM nigga, I get easily 15+ kill and 300k+ damage on mine.

When it only takes 3 people to spike a person down even with a healer it's pretty smart. All the casters except RDM (who is only so-so) have great spammable instants for skirmishing.

The main job of melees is ice damage not just outright killing and it really shows.

Here is my first new pvp BLM match. You don't lose damage switching between astrals and they instant cast. You just don't get to use Ice/Fire IVs.

Weapon increases damage. Just great stats too.

Body is the biggest source of raw stats.

If you want to do progression you want to get left stuff for vitality or you'll get executed from mechanics. If you want pure stat right side is best value. Make sure to get gear for slots that are underperforming ilvl first obviously though.

it's not overdesigned so much as the clothing textures in this game are really fucking bad, and being on a large model isn't helping the situation

>>387026045
invigorate, diversion, 2nd wind, and true north are all pretty standard. the last one is up to you since there are a couple good ones. you could also forgo diversion and use elusive jump on drg but that's a bit more trouble than it's worth a lot of the time and the replacement skills aren't that good anyway

Am I crazy, or did PvP used to give tomestones? I've been spamming Frontline all week and was amazed to see I'm not capped on Verity/Creation.

you have to be level cap

The game really doesn't expect much dps from Bard does it? The dummies explode so easily
>>
>>387026945
You need to do pvp on your level 70 job
>>
How the fuck do I play AST properly? I feel like I'm doing something wrong, and each party I've been in while doing levelling roulettes has wiped because the tank's HP drops like a sack of bricks, and I can't do shit to stop it.

The last run I did was with that All-Seeing Eye shit, which was a pain in the ass, and we wiped in the first big-ish room until somebody said the equivalent of "go to the crystal you retards". After that, it surprisingly went alright.

The only thing you can do to make sure you're using your cooldowns.

There's really nothing you can do if the tank decides he doesn't want to use cooldowns.

Just play tank, you're literally just a DPS with half the buttons to press, it's great.
>>
>>387027510
Diurnal > Nocturnal Aspected Benefic in 4 man dungeons since you only need to reapply that shit every so often on the tank, you get more time to do other shit. Use Largeass and Synastry to increase your healing on the tank. Eye for an Eye and even Bole if you want. If tank's undergeared or doesn't use cooldowns, you're out of luck and just need to spam those heals.

Always make sure Card Draw is used on cooldown and don't neglect your other cooldowns, all AST skills are useful.
>>
>>387027842
It pains me that this is true but so many people still manage to fuck it up.

It feels like the skill level of tanks has dipped below most DPS since SB dropped.

Is there a decent and concise SMN guide that isn't that 50 page long dissertation?

Swap your soulstone for a RDM one.
Just one sentence needed.

SB mobs deal fucktons of damage.
Get ready for noob tanks who don't pop cd and think they can mass pull with underleveled gear.
>>
>>387027739
False, but nobody blames you, you were obviously born with brain problems :^)
>>
>>387027591
So, Essential Dignity when the tank's HP needs it, keep a constant flow of cards going, and that's about it? Should I be using Lightspeed as much as I can, or should I save that for when it's needed?

>>387027851
Can't use Nocturnal Sect yet, still levelling it up to 50. I try to keep a Regen on the tank/party as much as I can, but sometimes I've felt I had to prioritize the tank's survival over a Regen that might kill them.

Thanks for the tips and guide, they're pretty helpful so far.
>>
>>387028215
I don't see dried feces as gum like you, clearly you're the one with brain problems here.
And nice counterargument. A limp dicked "false".

I'm very new to the game and I picked WHM. Did that Haukke dungeon and the tank kept pulling 3 groups of mobs. Was quite hard to keep them up, but I managed.

Does it get worse?
>>
>>387028231
Lightspeed and Quickcast are your oh shit buttons. Lightspeed can be used to spam Gravity though if you wish. It gets even better when you get Hyper Lightspeed at like level 66

You don't need to bother giving regen to the party usually, just the tank (and only when he's already finished pulling). Aspected Benefic has no cast time and you can use it right after a regular Benefic.
>>
>>387028472
Alright, thanks.
>>
>>387028392
Expect more of that. Tanks will do massive pulls without using any cooldowns or the DPS won't use AoE and you'll run out of cooldowns to keep the tank alive.

Both are out of your control but will probably be blamed on you unless you call them out on it. But then you get a temp ban for being hostile.

It gets more complex since damage increases, tanks do giant pulls while undergeared and/or aren't very good (so don't use their cooldowns) and skill levels of dps starts to matter in how easy/hard it is for you. You also get more skills and cooldowns to use as well of course as well as there being an expectation of precasting heals in anticipation of boss skills etc
>>
>>387028559
>>387028636
Thank you both very much!
>>
>>387028512
Don't use Lightspeed for Gravity.
Lightspeed nerfs its damage by 25%, and since you can no-longer extend your MP regen ability's duration with Celestial Opposition AST doesn't have the MP to be wasting on that shit.
>>
>>387028392
As you get more skills, it becomes easier to handle bigger pulls. WHM at level 70 can handle a pack of enemies a lot easier than a WHM at level 30 (?), mainly because of the larger skill pool they can draw from.

My recommendation for now is to pop a Regen on the tank after the pull, figure out how much damage the tank can take before you have to slobber over his dick, and then optimize the fuck out of your healing. Cure 1 gives you a free Cure 2 sometimes, so if you're feeling lucky, just spam Cure 1 and hope. I forget if you have Medica II by this point, but if you do, have that and Regen up at the same time - that way, a larger amount of damage is mitigated (but just make sure to keep Lucid Dreaming on hand for when the tank drops aggro like a retard, and every enemy wants a piece of you). Make sure to keep your DoTs on both enemies and tank up - it makes things a lot easier for everyone.

A lot of the game is learning as you go, especially with healing on the boss fights. As >>387028636 mentioned, people will expect you to precast heals for boss skills, and you can't really do that unless you've done the fight before.

I don't like cats and even I can tell it's objectively more attractive than constipated, man-faced hulks and camels.
When the rest of the world describes them that way, you'd think they'd take a fucking hint already. Femroe/giraffe circlejerks are the saddest shit in this game and makes /xivg/ look tame. Nothing but brain damaged retards with warped views of aesthetics jerking each other off while telling each other everything is okay. The condescension is ironic as well.

This. And completely removing all the people that use shitsui armor would improve the game by a large margin.

Most PUGs are so bad they will make you suicidal.
There are single-celled organisms which demonstrate greater capacity to learn than the overgrown wankstains you'll find playing this game. Mix that with the Dunning Kruger effect, and ho boy you're in for a bad time friendo.
>>
>>387029946
Male Roes are actually pretty good.
The few female Highlanders I've seen are fine.
I don't even see female Roes in dungeons. Pretty sure the few "people" who bothered making one did it for fetish erp shit.
Elezen player quality varies but most are mediocre. The last one I saw in town danced in bikini while a lalafell throws money at it.
