not playing a healer. Dam been playing an arcanist up until yesterday got to 30 and thought may as well get started on the conj, every time i click join in the duty finder there is absolutely zero wait, lol.

On the arc i'm waiting over 30 minutes, i knew it was better for heals and tanks but didn't know it was instant every single time. It's frigging nice.

Overall i'm loving the healer, never really played one before, think i found a new calling. Unicorn mount here i come...

I'm enjoying playing a tank here, also my first big shot at tanking instances etc in an mmo, and enjoying myself as well. So yeah, anyone complaining about long waits, give that a shot. You might enjoy it.

For endgame instances - yes, maybe. For low lvl instances it's actually hard to find ANY party. Even as a conjurer/white mage, I typically wait for 10-25 minutes before each dungeon.

That's because you're either waiting for a tank, or you're just waiting for the duty finder to give you an instance which can be a problem at prime time.   You can look at group status sometimes and see your 4 group slots filled up with everything GTG...then still have to wait. 

 

Level ranges having more tanks or healers are variable and seem to change weekly sub 50.

It's not just one tank either, you're waiting behind however many healers queue'd up before you did and are waiting.

 

Early on you used to get insta queue for healers on up to 30 (very few conjurers, and no one else can queue as heals sub 30), where you'd then have to wait at 30+ because there'd be a bunch of new arcanists playing scholars.    That trend is over now (People still make scholars, but there were SO many arcanists on release it wasn't even funny, and they wanted faster queues).

That never happened to me. o_O Wow!

Still, whatever the reason, even healers have to wait just like everyone else. ;)

I like that you can queue the duty finder as one class then switch to any other class to play while waiting.  Then when your dungeon pops up you switch back to the class you queued with and enter it.  Really like that feature.

What I don't like is that if you bring out your chocobo to fight with you it will cancel your queue because it adds him as a party member.  That part is disappointing.

The game time that comes with the initial purchase is about up for most players, so waiting in the que for an instance instead of a player should never be a problem again.

as a DPS (Archer/Bard) I always do the crafting dailies for the GC while waiting for an instance, so the 30 minutes waiting time doesn't really annoy me: crafting and suddenly the pop-up there's a party ready. I'm levelling all the crafting-jobs, so there's always something to do (dailies & leves) when waiting for an instance.

Damn i didn't know that, i always stayed on the arc as when i switched i got a big message not right class. Definitely would do some crafting while i waited. Noticed allot of Ahriman's today, got mine today as well so looks like allot of 3 and or 6 month subs. I wonder if wait times will decrease now that the free month is up.

It was all insta-queue until I got around lvl 30 and Haukke Manor.  Can't seem to find groups for that place as easy, sometimes will wait 20 minutes as heals.

I wonder if that's true. Do you think that people who have already decided to quit and not sub are still ardently lining up to run instances? Are people that cheap that they are going to play the full 30 days of included game time, even if they no longer like the game? 

 

I would think that the people who are not going to sub are mostly gone already. Why would they dump more time into a game they don't like? There are some people on the fence now, about subbing, who might drop out. Otherwise, since this is a dungeon-running gear-based progression game, there probably won't be such a huge drop off (unless they don't get some more content for the hardcore-raiding-gear people soon). If they don't satisfy those people, they will move on. Then what you say may turn out to be true.

I'm loving it! Why i never played one before is beyond me. Interactive, need to be alert, stay on your toes for sure,different from DPS. May try a tank but not something I've never done before as i tanked all my years in EQ2.

 

I guess i could continue my story with the healer once i get to proper level? As i said, unicorn mount here i come.

Very true, this is one reason i hated when all mmo's were subs back in the day, always seemed a day after a fresh monthly bill went though i was done, lost interest and bugged the hell out of me that i was paying for 30 days to not play. No way i was going to force myself, simply not interested anymore. When you're done, you're done.

 

Now with this comment "Are people that cheap that they are going to play the full 30 days of included game time, even if they no longer like the game?"

You'd be surprised how many!

I was working in a plant that makes toilet paper, paper towels, kleenex/tissue that sort of stuff, not for them was doing a job for them. Anyway i was writing code day after day in the plant and watched these employees sitting at the end of the conveyor line right before packaging and they would literally snag a completed product, open it an COUNT, i repeat COUNT every ply, paper towel, tissue in each one they opened!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! WTF?

I asked the plant manager "seriously" do customers actually count how many are on a roll, or in a box and he said and i quote "You'd be Surprised" then went on about that is why these jobs exist, to open them up and count them? I was blown away.

Mostly to do with how stressful it is. Some people just can't deal with that or don't want that responsibility. 

Other people think that is exactly that responsibility that makes running dungeons actually fun instead of being just another snoozefest run.

Wish MNK was a tank like in WoW :"(

I wouldve started out with that instead. Not really a fan of PLD or WAR. Not even sure why a WAR is a Tank when they look like a Berserker type which is DPS.

Im usually more of an alternate type of tank like Blood DK, WoW Monk, SWTOR Assassin and less of a Sword and Board type so ill probably start leveling a WAR sooner or later anyway. /shrug

Stressful, i didn't think of it that way, i thought how challenging it can be and love it.

 

The thing in this game is the ranges of awesome to all out bad/noob players and i mean mega green, i'm mostly using the finder and am loving this variety for some reason? I offer helpful advice to the noobs and run with the synergy of vet players. Variety is the key component here i imagine.

 

It's refreshing to be matched up with  pro's, then rather amusing to watch how green some players are and the things we all at one time did i'm sure, they start running around with their hair on fire for example, which makes healing them ever so much fun. Tanks that have no clue about adds which makes keeping myself and everyone else alive ever so challenging.

 

I guess having more control over these situations and never having to do runs with healers that think they are DPS and healing is only a utility to keep themselves alive is nice as well.
