Finished matches for the Tidus TT tournament #3 on the leaderboard! I started off doing super well (going 4-1-0 my first five matches) but then things fell apart a bit after that. Unfortunately I think it's pretty likely that I'll be knocked down a bit and lose the guaranteed card; hopefully I can at least get 4-6th place and have pretty good odds of Tidus from the gold tournament pack.

Finally got everything to 80!



(CRP was not remotely the last class; I just like my DoH glam better than my combat ones)

Machinist sure does not have a lot of buttons, huh?

I pre-built my cross hotbar for 80, and almost all of it fits on a single set.

yep. next to no buttons but gotta press them very fast.

Fun class but it's very very easy to just turn your brain off and go into a button trance with it

I've also been playing Gunbreaker and it's fun as heck.

I planned that cross hotbar ahead too, and unless there's something I'm missing I'm not sure why it has a reputation of being so difficult.

Truly? Maybe it's a signature of physical ranged DPS.

Dancer doesn't have many either (your usual whack-a-mole of single target, your whack-a-mole of multi-target, your single target and AoE fan dances, the whack-a-mole of third fan dance proc, your two-step dance, your four-step dance, shield samba, healing waltz, devilment, flourish, improvise, 3x zoom, and role actions)

Nor does Bard (DoT 1, DoT 2, DoT refresher, burst shot, refulgent arrow, barrage, Sidewinder, AoE sidewinder, bloodletter, AoE bloodletter, 3x songs + pitch perfect for one of 'em, party damage buff during song, apex arrow, utility healbuff, raging strikes, instant-esuna, shield doot, role actions.) And yet it manages to be the most hectic class I play by sheer amount of things you need to dump in a single window without overcapping stacks or letting DoTs or songs drop off..

It's the most difficult tank, which isn't saying much

Keeping your windows aligned while also doing tank things can get tricky, and unlike most other tank jobs you need those to stay aligned.

What windows are there to worry about in GNB? I feel you get to dump everything in No Mercy already, then the long cooldown tank buffs, but I'm only mid 60s and not sure if they get much else beyond QoL improvement.

GNB is secretly the easiest tank, it just has the most rotational buttons. If you do your opener right all you have to do the rest of the fight is press everything on cooldown.

The issue is when the fight dictates you NEED to be using tank cooldowns or doing a tank mechanic at a certain time which can potentially overlap with and mess up the dps cooldowns

I don't know why but I still get a ton of pleasure seeing like 4 380k hits at once on the four queens soldiers when I do a lost slash on them

Even if it normally results in getting aggro on all the pieces and dying as no healer is expecting to cure a monk at that point

That similarly explains why when I was a Bozjan Sprout I Lost Focused to 16 stacks and Barrage Refulgent Arrowed on pull at the start of Castrum and got slapped for my effort.

This is what all bozjan sprouts should aspire to be. Play with your new tools! Even at great cost to mettle

Is it true that, if youre trying to do the relic quest, and youre on the steps that require these memory materials, its better actually not even go to bozja and instead grind heavensward fates??

your mileage may vary. If you can find whats called a 'cluster farm', you'll find you can get memories pretty quickly inside bozja. Without one of these parties, it'll be slow going and fates are probably much better.

I will say, you'll get some memories naturally when leveling through Bozja (assuming you've started the quest), and some later steps are better done in Bozja (imo) so its worth going through it regardless

(to clarify - clusters are currency for items inside Bozja, and are gotten randomly when killing IVth legion enemies. Memories are gotten randomly when killing any monster in the appropriate zone, so even though the party is named for something else, you get the item you want. And with the way they/drops work in bozja, parties typically split between different zones, and you can get 2 or 3 types of memories at once)

I don't know why I have so much trouble remembering the Gunbreaker DOT. I think I've forgotten to use it like 90% of the time I've been in fights where it was unlocked.

Maybe because DRK doesn't have one?

I think my issue is that I have the DOT on the R2->L2 bar, and every other character I have played I have played so far I have my DOT somewhere on R2.

I guess I could swap my R2+Triangle which is my 1 bullet spending GCD to the DOT instead. Obviously I use the DOT less but I'm not gonna forget to spend a bullet.

Okay, mini-jackpot. But still. (The 360 was also the best outcome I could hope for that card, doing some quick maths on all the combinations)

I got that exact same lineup a couple weeks ago!

I'm in a Meridium right now where nobody is a sprout but literally NOBODY is doing the tasks. I'm tanking and have had to hit every single searchlight, cannon, and bomb myself.

I just finish Livia part 1 before hitting post message and hat to shoot the cannon myself 4 times. One of the White Mages asked why I wasn't tanking Livia??

NONE OF THESE ARE SPROUTS

there's a reason its not uncommon whatsoever for people to just abandon castrum if they get it in roulette, especially if they're tank or healer. not only is it a headache if people don't know what to do, the exp rewards are just so much lower. prae plz

i've never been the first to leave but i've definitely been happy to join the chain reaction once others dip

Are you in a group? Definitely makes it a lot easier!

Also the scaling in skirmishes is based on how many people did it the last time it was up. If 20 people were there for it last time and CLL starts leaving only a couple people in the zone it will really suck the next time for the few remaining players.

lol its fine i was just gonna grind some frags so since you weren't in a party i figured you could get some free ones just for existing

if you weren't aware, you don't need to get a hit in on monsters to get loot drops in bozja, you just need to exist in the party of someone who did hit the monster, so if you ever join a party for a critical engagement/skirmish just stay in it even if you aren't hanging out with those guys, unless you need another party for some reason

I also missed the boat on smart speculations for /shiver and Gyr Abanian plait. I could have bought them at 200k each a few days ago but now I'm paying 400-500k per shiver and 300-350k per plait to sit on them.
