The Annoying Little Things in FFXIV

Even if you love a massive multiplayer online roleplaying game so much, there will still be things that annoy you in that game. There is no such perfect game (or perfect people playing the game) that you can absolutely say that there is nothing that ticks you off while playing it. Let us take FFXIV as an example. FFXIV is really awesome. Great graphics, meticulous combat, and awesome PvE instances say a lot about how fantastic the game can be. Still, there are bad things that we don’t like in the game right? I wonder what people don’t like about…

A Whole New World: Reactive Area and Living World

No MMORPG is perfect, that for sure I can say. There will always be suggestions on how to improve the game even if those opinions are quite not needed. I get that even the littlest part of the game could be done better because I, too, have those sentiments sometimes. We can’t take away anything from the game companies and developers. They do their best to make their MMORPG as great as possible. No amount of gil can quantify the level of quality the games these developers release. Suggestion: Reactive Areas I know we should give developers and game companies…

A Community Like No Other

An MMORPG’s community is as important as any aspect of the game in terms of making a player stay playing. If an MMORPG like Final Fantasy XIV has an awful community as if it is compared to a game having a bad gameplay, more likely players will quit. For me, it is a legitimate reason to completely forget my own account and stop playing entirely. The FFXIV Community in a Nutshell Here we have a great example of why community attitude is important and thus what keeps him from playing the game. This is a post by JackalOsiris in Reddit: I…

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 Deep Dungeon and the Social Experiment in Levels

Dungeons – Final Fantasy XIV has them in spades. If you’ve played the game before, you already know how they work: you party up; have tank pull mobs and DPS eliminate them, then healers support the party; and learn the dungeon and boss mechanics to finish it. There is, however, an upcoming dungeon that will be having a different set of rules. Get to the bottom of the aptly and over-simplistically named Deep Dungeon. According to an interview during E3, the gaming world’s much-anticipated and arguably most important event, Noaki Yoshida, more affectionately known by seasoned Eorzeans as Yoshi-P, has…

The Inherent Problem in FFXIV’s Multiple Class System

FFXIV’s multiple job system is a breath of fresh air for most MMO veterans. Gone are the days when you have to make a new character to level a different job or class. FFXIV just outright lets you level each class via the multiple job system on a single character! No more running for achievements or gear for each character as you can just get them all in one! However, it does present a problem because there are so many choices that it becomes difficult to figure out which to main. Whether it is DPS, Tank, or Healer, you will…
