Astrologian Balance: WANTED Pt. 4

Let us continue on to the last part of the player suggestion on what he thinks should do to Astrologian so that it can be legit in Final Fantasy XIV as a standalone healer. Now, you cannot pick being an Astrologian because White Mage and Scholar are too good. Therefore, Astrologian is the least to be desired in groups and raids as a healer, even as a secondary healer. Wanting to main Astrologian is nearly impossible, really. It’s almost we have to buy our way into a raid team just to be able to Astrologian in a raid. Make the Astrologian Great…

Astrologian Balance: WANTED Pt. 3

Let us go back to reading the opinion of an FFXIV player that has an opinion on why the Astrologian needs more love. It isn’t cool in an MMO whenever there are classes that are not viable at end game. Continued: Buff the Astrologian! Here’s the third part of France- post on Reddit: So what makes SCH broken and N. AST terrible? There are many things, but the two things that we’ve learned are Deployment Tactics and the Fairy. The math shows that DT is grossly broken. Same goes for the fairy. SCHs power is hard to overstate. This has…

The Toxic Community: There is No Escape

Toxicity in MMORPG’s is becoming so prevalent that nobody is safe from it. Yeah, even in Final Fantasy XIV, the only game I played that I have thought that has the friendliest community, has been penetrated by toxic players. They log in to the game, search for every opportunity to be toxic and relish the moment when they actually succeeds in spreading the virus of being an ass. Come on, we play the game to have fun. I would understand if it’s in the spirit of competitiveness. But no, they just like being douchebag in the internet. I don’t know,…

Astrologian Balance: WANTED Pt. 2

In the previous article on the Astrologian, we talked about this suggestion from Reddit: Currently, based on current math and statistics collected from FFlogs, we know that: SCH is hilariously overpowered; even moreso than WAR is for tanks. People barely take AST and AST, in both Diurnal Sect and Nocturnal Sect, is still horridly underpowered compared to their WHM and SCH counterpart. We know this when we examine the data primarily gathered through data logs regarding clears and party compositions through FF logs. Square primarily takes into account which jobs are and aren’t taken into parties for Savage content when…

Astrologian Balance: WANTED

There was and will never be a completely balanced game ever since the birth of games that has multiple classes or races. Or even in fighting games with a roster of characters, there will never be a time that all of those characters are of equal strength. There will always be imbalance. How unfortunate that the Astrologian, one of the cooler classes in FFXIV, is the one to suffer this lack of balance. An Astrologian: Balance Suggestion  Here is the first part of a post which provides good analysis why FFXIV needs rebalancing. DISCLAIMER: Tl;dr at the bottom. AST has been discussed…

The FFXIV Class / Job 3.0 System

One thing I love FFXIV is that you can get all classes with one character. It is hard enough to think of a name for every character when you create if you want another character of another job, what more leveling and gearing them right? FFXIV let’s you get the chance to use all classes with one character. Just an amazing system overall. Job and Class combination reference This is from the guide from Reddit.
