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…

Crystal Tower and Hildibrand Overview

Crystal Tower was the very first raid-like instance in Final Fantasy XIV. Coil of Bahamut was not really raid-like for me way back because it was just like a dungeon but double the number of people inside. Honestly, it was just like the Primal fights but of course, was more difficult. However, this fight brought new light to my eyes as the number of people fighting in one fight grew twice or thrice therefore, also the action! Here we have some of the quests that involve Crystal Tower and the rewards and unlocks when you do them. The Crystal Tower Has…
