Final Fantasy XIV Machinist needs serious attention

Hello!

 

I was waiting to post my opinions about Machinist until I got to 60; however, it seems there are numerous MCH at 60 still affirming the issues I'm having with MCH at 54. I have not seen many posts here on the forums about it for some reason, but I wanted to bring this to official forums because reddit is pretty packed with very similar posts regarding issues with MCH.

 

I'll very briefly break it down here, but I strongly suggest if you have any interest in this, or would like to bring forth an argument, please read these posts. They provide a much more indepth argument than I do. Also, if you're just going to post, you don't know how to play, it needs more time in endgame, etc - either play MCH with a decent DPS friend and see how bad it is, or have a MCH friend and play with them to see how bad it is. 

 

We're not making this up, these are real problems. 

 

Lasly, if you're a MCH and you post, "I'm not having any of those issues..." yada yada, please post your rotation and tell us what you're doing. I've tried SEVERAL rotations and still find the same problems. 

 

Here are some of the major issues plaguing MCH at the moment (some of these are my personal observations others are from reddit posters):

Overal Damage is too low

Too much work for little reward

Some skills are completely useless to have

Ammunition cooldowns are bad

Too much RNG

Only once source to proc basic combo skills at 50% proc rate (seems high, but I hardly ever have procs while quickload / reload are on cooldown, compared to to the 3 sources to proc bloodletter - 2dots and weaponskill)

Wildfire is not optimized in game (supposedly double defense reduction, the only skill that gets it)

Must play class perfectly just to achieve moderate output compared to other DPS

 

Here are some indepth links I strongly suggest taking a look over. It's extremely surprising to see how poorly balanced this class is compared to every other dps out there (it's dps is even lower than bard).

 

Whether or not these points have been properly proven in game or not, there is quite a large group of Machinist players that feel this class needs to be looked at. That alone, imo, requires some attention from SE. Hopefully we'll get it sooner than Warrior's / Dragoon / Summoner buff when players were saying very similar comments.

 

Just one more thing, I understand this class hasn't been out but for a few days. I fully agree that there is much more testing to be done; however, those that are playing this class that I've read are putting 100% attention and effort into playing it at its peak. I, for one, am constantly working to play this to its max potential. That may not mean much to some, but I'm certainly not playing this class like i would any other DPS.
