There was an option to just Queue as whatever ffxiv class/role is needed
There would be a minor complication in that many duties have a minimum iLv requirement, and so any multi-role queue system would have to be coded to consider your gear levels, most likely using your gear sets. For example, if my gear sets went
It would have to tell DR:Expert (200 requirement) something like "gear sets 1-8 okay; here are the roles for each gear set".
Alternatively (and preferably, I'd say), would be to designate a set of gear sets, maximum one per role, before you queue. So I might choose something like
Tank: None (perhaps I don't want to tank this roulette)
Healer: set 6
Ranged: set 1
to indicate that I would like to AST or BLM. This would require a far less complicated matching algorithm than the former system that just considers the whole set of gear sets.
And still another possible issue would be the ability that people currently have to cheat the iLv requirements by wearing inappropriate accessories (and it does happen -- I have seen on more than one occasion casters in all STR/DEX accessories or DoWs in all INT/MND accessories). While this has been an existing potential situation since the dawn of iLv requirements, a multi-role queue system would make it even more tempting and easier for people to assign gear inappropriately in order to get a shorter queue time, and so consideration would have to be given to locking accessories to their intended roles.
Here's how I would implement it:
Allow queueing as multiple classes/jobs (not roles) at the same time.
The above should be limited to one job per sub-role (melee, magic, ranged, tank, healer).
If you queue in more than one job, the role that most fits the party you're joining will be chosen.
Example: If you queue as DRK, WHM, BRD, and DRG, and you're chosen to join a party consisting if 1 tank, 1 healer, and 1 mage, your queue will probably pop as DRG.
In order to join on multiple jobs, you have to register specific gearsets for each job into the DF.
If your registered gearset for a particular job doesn't meet the minimum ilvl requirement for the duty, then you may not queue to that duty as that job.
If you're not queueing on multiple jobs, you should be able to queue on your current job (only) based on the equipment you're currently wearing.
Since everyone could equip the FFXIV items and be fully immune to every status
Status effects like paralysis are harmful to melee FFXIV DPS or FFXIV Tanks, but it hits frequently enough that we casters can barely get a single charge cast spell off without it interrupting
I really hope FFXIV 3.0 gives us some way make money
Its so painfully easy to make money, even off just running dungeons and selling the mats that comes out of it, that there is a huge deficit of ffxiv gil supply to demand already. A good portion of us literally have millions, and no way to spend it. We need more ffxiv gil sinks, not more ffxiv gil fountains.

The only possible way an apartment would be suitably grandiose enough to match up with the narrative of the Warrior of Light is if we were literally living within places like Ul'dah's Royal Palace.

I have come up with an idea for making the glamour FFXIV system even better
Hello, I have come up with an idea for making the glamour ffxiv system even better, I believe it would also reduce the amount of database needs for this system
I just went to do T9 for the first time via FFXIV Duty Finder
So I just went to do T9 for the first time via FFXIV DF. I had checked out a video beforehand, but it was so much to remember that I knew it would have to be learned bit by bit as there was no way to remember every mechanic from every phase in one go
