FFXIV Forced to finish Before the Fall, dumb design.

It’s pretty next level stupid of Final Fantasy XIV Gil SE to force players to complete the original story quests up to and including before the fall in order to step foot into Heavensward. Got a few friends that bought the game and pre-ordered Heavensward but it looks like we wont be able to start the expansion right away since they dont have the time to finish all of the long and tedious quests leading up to it. I’m sure I’m not the only one having a problem with this. A new expansion should mean a new start and an equalization between the player base and gear. Everyone should be on equal footing.

Maybe i’m off base here, but if you have expert roulette unlocked it’s only a skip and a jump to finish out the main storyline….with almost no content that is difficult anymore. How come we are ok with tiers of coil being blocked off my progression, but not mainline content.

At the end of the day the only people readily affected by this are new players, and they need to play through quests to help them attain that first lvl 50 anyway. If your complaint is one that concerns not wanting to do story missions then I think that you need to look at the success in this game. Alot of that success is attributed to its visual style and the story that it is crafted around. SE knows that the market loves this aspect of the game and is pushing people to experience the world that they have painstakingly crafted.

As a Final Fantasy XIV tank, what should I know/do to make it easier on Healer?

So I am pretty new to this game(and it’s my first MMO), so I don’t know very much about the different limitations of the classes. But that’s not what I’m going FFXIV Gil to ask here.

I just wonder what you, as healer, like to see from tanks that make it easier on you and in your opinion make a run go smoothly? I don’t really know what to expect, what to wait for, what things I may be doing unconsciously that make you silently sit in a rage. xD I try at any opportunity to not piss people off so it’d be really cool to know what to avoid or what you like to see from a tank.

For dungeons:

– Actually use your resources proactively. This might sound stupid to you, but many people just ‘get by’ and won’t rotate their cooldowns as necessary. The same kind of guys never seem to plan ahead and try to minmax in general.

– On the previous note: distribute your cooldowns evenly between bigger pulls instead of stacking them on one pull and having nothing on the next one. You obviously need to use your own judgment here, but if you’re doing sets of big pulls, it can be possible you’re overkilling it on the first pull and underkilling on the next one. Makes a healer lose a lot DPS in simply having to keep the tank up. (Unless very overgeared).

– Tag NPCs properly with some skill with an enmity modifier. A shield lob/Tomahawk for singular mobs, or then running by and Flashing as you go past them. Again, for bigger pulls, healers sometimes wanna cast once or twice mid-pull whilst headed towards the designated pull-ending-place; simply running past mobs and not generating sufficient hate on them will suck, as mobs will run free if someone does anything to net aggro (buffing themselves, casting E4E, a fairy using Embrace on you, never mind manually casted heals by the healer). Simply running by mobs will put you on top of the enmity list by 1 point, but all and any actual actions will make people surpass this number, hence the mobs can be lost mid-pull and them yoyoing can destroy the whole pull, which is why you need to be considerate of this while pulling big Final Fantasy XIV Gil.

There’re many other things, QoL stuff and otherwise (such as Sprint-pulling on a PLD whilst considering that a mitigation tool, as you’ll use Flash for the most part anyway for big pulls) but you’re still new to the game as you say and this is your first MMO, so you might not be doing speedruns right off the bat. (And we’ll transition into level 60 soon enough anyway, with everyone having new stuff to learn).

For raiding content and stuff, it’s the best to level other jobs yourself to understand how certain things work out. However, if you don’t move a mob around needlessly (“spin2win!”), you’re off to a good start at least. Just use common sense, read a few guides, watch gameplay videos of skilled players, level stuff yourself, actually read the tooltips and if you’re wondering about something – search about it on the internet or ask a question. General stuff, y’know.
