^^^^^ all good advice

The crafting and gathering stuff in this game is *chef kiss*

It's a whole game unto itself and the different crafting jobs are dependent on eachother for pieces and parts.
You don't just kill a lizard for 3 pieces of leather and then click a button and watch a progress bar turn them into a pair of boots.

You gotta gather that hide, tan it to make it usable with a reagent from an Alchemist
You might need some yarn of some sort to tie it all together, which a Weaver can spin from bolls
And then finally some rubber for the sole, which your Alchemist can make from latex (or you just buy it cheap from the supply vendor fuck that)

Then you actually have to play the crafting minigame to put it all together and try to get your chance of a High-Quality craft up so it's a really good pair of boots with bonus stats.

It might sound tedious, and in some ways it kinda is, but it feels really fucking good when you're picking all these choices pieces and parts out of your dragon's horde of random mats to forge together into some cool piece of glam or bettering your gear.

To be fair the crafting minigame is pretty simple

The high quality crafts on Ishgard stuff were the first time in a long while you've had to actually be challenged by that minigame.

been playing the fuck out of this since the patch dropped

the streamlining of ARR isn't as extreme as i'd hoped but it's a step in the right direction

the new content is amazing

If nobody has made one yet, we should make a cross world linkshell for people, I know there's a fair amount of us who play on here

Ive been leveling an alt a bit and they did streamline it a good amount
Probably cut like 20-30 hours out of the base game and 2.x patches
It's still pretty long and there are a couple questionable quests left but cutting much more would require reworking the flow and plot of the story in the base game unfortunately

Flying also makes post Ultima much more bearable now, especially coerthas, where I think a lot of people quit
Instead of having to slowly ride to snowcloak and back 10 times taking several minutes each time you just fly there in like 10 seconds

Patch was nice, good story content
Did pretty much everything I cared to do and sub ran out, so I'm back to waiting
New savage tier next patch I guess. Even if I don't commit to raiding it exists and is content

On mobile so I'm too lazy to quote but yeah on second thought I think the addition of flying in ARR would help the post patch quests feel a little less tedious

Just got back into it after not playing since the third turn of Alexander released way back. Switched from DRG to RDM and am enjoying it.

It's a pain to invite people because I have to actually join your world server to do it whilst you are online

easiest way to get an invite is to just DM me on discord when you are on the game

desperately wish we'd get a ffxiv-2 that is the same game but not on an engine with a decade of awful technical debt

if you need a prime example of how this game is a dumpster fire on the backend, look at the social features

Yeah, it was a 17 minute fight and you get maybe 2 mistakes before a wipe. Now that I have <<The Legend>> floating by my name I get roasted for any death.

literally use it on cooldown, once you hit 70 you don't need to worry about building gauge since you can just pop inner release after getting your damage buff from your first 3 hits

Not warrior though, so general advice-

Use your damage-skills essentially as soon as they get off cooldown
Use mitigation when pulling big in dungeons or to stop tankbusters from making your healer cry in raids. Don't pop it all at once either, one is usually enough. Maybe two if it's current content tankbusters and your gear is bad(Or some dungeons where you can pull everything).
Figure out what rotation works well for your class and try to get the muscle memory for it on normal mode raids, practice dummies and whatever other content you do
