Hey these 2 months of barely any new releases have been a great time to finally start catching up again

B8 list of users - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1l74RR-geLuIqazjQLeNa7xCyrlwLHBloRjuVQB-who4/edit?usp=sharing

Spent 5 hours just now trying to get into King Moggle Extreme and then it took us 35 minutes of retrying to form a plan of attack and finally kill him. Definitely the hardest boss I've had to take down so far.

Actual game progress story wise just finished the 2.1 stuff and now going THROUGH THE MAELSTROM, but besides that I've done pretty much every sidequest available to me in these patch quests

And now back to doing these relic weapon books because I want the shiny paladin sword and shield. Maybe I'll hit Heavensward before the end of the month.

still slogging through MSQ's in ARR over here

I dig being able to use NPC's in the dungeons, even though they kind of suck. It was worth it to not feel rushed through the dungeons though

Do extreme fights through party finder, not duty finder. You'll find people much easier. No one queues extremes through DF and if you do you'll end up stuck waiting for... well... 5 hours!

2/9 books done

the thing that actually bothers me about these is I was equally leveling all my jobs up to this point and now Paladin is going to shoot ahead of all of them

Yeah the convention on NA servers is that Extremes, Coils of Bahamut (but not the expansion normal raids), Savages, and Ultimates are all organized through Party Finder rather than Duty Finder. Queueing through DF will mean you will take forever and end up with a party comprised of other brand new players who don't know that convention and people from mentor roulette who were probably hoping for something easier to grind towards their mount.

I've been relatively lucky in terms of FATE timings. There were only maybe 2 or 3 I had to wait longer than 30 minutes when I was reading some people were waiting 2 hours for some. I just busted out my Switch and played some Earthbound.

also oh god that dungeon I just did that felt like the first time where I was the one who knew all the mechanics, but my 3 other party members were clueless. What a unique feeling.

I've decided to finally go and finish Eureka's story after Pagos burnt me out hard. Went from 21 to 28 in a single day doing challenge logs. May be a lot quicker than I anticipated, if I don't need weapon upgrades to move on between each part.

Separate post to ask, but how do I unlock aetherial reduction? Do I have to be a specialist in the class I'm desynthing for? I was hoping to grind aethersand from a fishing trip but I don't have the option to do so anywhere, and wondering if it's because while my culinarian desynth is maxed out, my actual CUL level is only 35.

NieR Re[in]carnation has an FFXIV collab going on right now. I doubt many people here play it so here are the story scenes to the event itself.

The video description says it contains spoilers for Endwalker though.

It is interesting just how class dynamic shifts (or fails to) as you level up right now.

BLM roulette is more like "what's my optimal rotation" roulette and I only just hit 70 with Polyglot and Foul.

Update: 2/3 of the fish for the first stage are done, but it looks like the weather pattern for the third isn't happening anymore today so I'll have to wait until next week to try again.

Edit: And now I have the PS4 trophy for fishing 1000 times. Shame they only count fish you catch in La Noscea, Thanalan, or the Shrou, but hey, I made it to level 57 almost entirely off of that.

Not particularly rare - it'll be there tomorrow even - but my playtime is extremely weekday-heavy; I rarely if ever play on weekends.

Slowly progressing towards the end of ShB.

Called the Vauthry being the last Lightwarden part. Though that scene was highly amusing. Also love the Mt Gulg callback!

I did some fresh UwU this week, as Warrior. It's not as bad as it looks. Got to suppression after 4 hours. Somehow did Predation and Annihilation right the first time we got to Ultima lol Though I tank priviledged an Ifrit aftershock during Anni. It barely hurt.

Not doing it today, but I guess if I want to see the coils of Bahamut content now instead of soloing it later I should make a party in the party finder and make it unrestricted and note that it's my first time through so some level 80+ can carry me through and let them get 1300 poetics out of it?

Yeah, that's the best way to get through the Coils. Keep in mind that the Coils have pretty long cutscenes at the start, end, and sometimes even in the middle of the duty. Most people willing to help out with Coils are 100% okay with waiting for the cutscenes, but there might be some peeps who aren't as patient. Just a heads up.

T9 (Second Coil, Turn 4) is... notoriously difficult, though. To the point where you're unironically probably better off KOing yourself as soon as the duty starts if you don't have at least Augmented Shire gear, due to how the mechanics in that fight work (made even harder to pull off with an undersized party). I think it might be possible to solo, but I'd recommend picking up at least another Lv. 80+ or two.

Coils is weird in that you only need to complete turn 5 to do the next quetline to unlock the next tier. And then you only need to do turn 9 and finally just turn 13 to see the end of the story. That said there are a bunch of cutscenes in almost all of the fights.

What you can do is pf turn 5, 9 and 13 while skipping all cutscenes to get it out of the way, then do new game+. How it will work is you'll do the story again leads to turns 1-5. Then you can immediately accept the quest that follows but will ask you if you wanna watch all the cutscenes from turns 1-5. Says yes and so it will play all that story for you and then start the quest that leads to turns 6-9. And then the same thing will happen for the next tiers.

Alternatively, find some kind souls that will wait for you in the cutscenes of all 13 fights.
