Let's talk Final Fantasy XIV bard
Anyone feel that the loss of auto attacks during gauss/wanderer isn't being made up with the 20% damage boost?
As a lvl 60 bard I feel very disappointed with how things turned out.
Unlike other classes our job is not getting expanded upon what it does, but just thrown around playstyle wise. People that like casters already had the choices of BLM + SMN, BRD had a different playstyle.
But the fact that we get a bunch of skills that just feel super underwhelming during the lvling process and at max level still so. Until maybe we can gear out and build for certain stat combinations isn't even my biggest issue.
The way these "stances/song" are implemented is pretty horrible.
They completely misalign or force sub optimal skill usuage.
Unlike BLM's the BRD wasn't made with this playstyle from the get go. So we have skills like Bloodletter triggering middle of a cast of a straight shot which triggers a straighter shot just before EA comes off cooldown and maybe blunt arrow too and sidewinder if that's how it turned out to be while having to place the flaming arrow as well. Oh and then there's the need to refresh dots too and all this while having low weapon damage and low potencies which are then being compensated by 20% damage increase which we already lost to the fact that we loose our auto attacks. And I didn't even mention the fact that unlike BLM's we have a couple more buffs on shorter cooldowns to keep up which cut into our GCD's too. And then there's the repelling shot which has 80 potency on a utility skill which can't really be done safely in this stance without risking cancelling out a skill or cutting into your gcd due to animation.
I really don't understand the thought-process of SE on the creation of these skills, but to top it off they tried to make MCH and BRD be kinda the same? Which is even worse. So now if you don't like one the other one is an aesthetically different looking version of the same thing so you won't like them both even though it used to be your favorite role and type of play.
Final Fantasy XIV A New Face
I don't have much experience with Final Fantasy (in any of the variations, as this is my first FF game)
Why I Decided to Become an Final Fantasy XIV Elitist
The fights ARE easy if you do them 100 times. I was telling someone yesterday how I remember when it seemed I didn't have any time in Final Fantasy XIV Titan EX.
Want options in the game outside of ffxiv PvP for showing my allegiance and my race
I want options in the game outside of FFXIV PvP for showing my allegiance and my race. It would be neat if dialogue were more sensitive to your race and city, and that when given quests or engaging in quests
Final Fantasy XIV:More Flexibility in Glamour please
I still don't get the decisions they make in glamour sometimes. Personally it's quite frustrating, and there's very little logic to it. At the least, they could be more flexible
Why I Still Play the Final Fantasy Game?
To me it doesn't feel very "Final Fantasy"-ish, but it took me a while to really narrow down why.
The thing is that Warrior and Dark Knight already don't need any help Tactical Points
The thing is that Warrior and Dark Knight already don't need any help Tactical Points That 2nd problem being why would tanks sacrifice any DET/CRIT/SKS for that small amount of Parry secondary
