"Get your FPS out of my MMORPG" - Timetrapper (me)

 
OP  8/31/13 1:10:47 AM#1

Yep, that's what you do from 45-50, or at least what everyone is doing to get leveled up fast.  Stand in town waiting for FATE's to pop.  Yipee.

 

And you better get there before the 14:00 mark or you get no exp.  I feel bad for these npc enemies getting zerged and just straight up flattened.  I mean they are dead as soon as they spawn.  Thumbs up to who ever came up with FATE's. 

 

I've been posting about FATE's but they just won't go away.  At all levels its just camping in town and hauling to them.  If you don't do this, they will be down before you can participate.  Yes, you can do them randomly and rarely if you quest or do kill quests, but you won't see this uber exp these guys are getting.

 

This is probably the biggest lamest part of FFXIV.  The rest is cool.  But why allow this mechanic to let people ding so fast and so mindlessly?  I mean come on, this is just nuts.  You can ding 50 in no time.

 

I'm just fed up with this.  I press M and all my team members blue dots on the map are just nestled near the port waiting for the next FATE pop.  It's just so lame seeing so many people just sitting in town tucked in together like ghey ferrets.

Have fun doing that for the next few months/weeks leveling classes. Then you can stand in town and do nothing!

The joys of new games huh. I'd hate if there were a similar michanic to that with any other game... I love exploring an MMO, not Idling in it .. jeez. y so pro

That´s why I deleted my old char from 1.0 and started With a fresh New char.

The game has changed so much from 1.0. It´s basically a New game. Why ruin the experience With an old character.

And, like With any other MMO, I have no pitty on those powerlevelers.

By all reports there are multiple paths to leveling (skilling) why waste the experience on only traversing one path? The only disservice here is one inflicted on self.

I've been mostly doing leves and normal quests.If the Fate is near,i will do it.Haven't touched crafting things,it looks really complicated and time consuming. Im now 32con/20arc.Im getting horribly bored.Really doubt that i'll make it to 50.

Because everything else dries up.


There are very few quests past level 41. For the main story quest line you will do a few quests then have to get to the next level to continue. Definitely something SE needs to fix in the near future.

Hunting logs dont last very long 40+.

Dungeons give good exp but get pretty hard. So, grab some good people because hard dungeons + time limit = PUGs fail hard.

Leves dont scale well. While leves are repeatable as long as you have allowances they give poor exp at high levels.


So, basically that leaves Fates.

In the Main Menu, find the button called Armoury Chest and click it. Next click the button in the most upper left. This opens the Main Hand items in your Armoury. Now with the Main Hand window open, select any of the objects in the window, Right Click it and select Equip.

That should solve your problem.

 

(In the event that the Main Hand Window is empty, this is actually good news. It means you can go to any of the guilds and speak to the receptionist and they will give you quests)

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

If that's the way those people want to spend their time then they can go ahead. I am going to take my time and enjoy the game doing everything it has to offer.

you guys are complaining that fates are too easy and are complaining that dungeons are too hard... now you are going to quit because you are frustrated. LOL. Man, and you want to know why developers have trouble catering to the MMO crowd. they think they can get absolute perfection for 12bucks a month. cable tv is utter garbage and that costs 50+ dollars a month.

I was running through town yesterday and saw a level 47 standing by the main aetheryte.  I think he was showing off but all I could do was feel sorry for him.  Here we are one week after the release of the game and this guy is almost at top level.  At this point he is probably one of all of two people at that level.  This is a non-legacy server mind you.  So he has obviously power-leveled and skipped all of the content that makes FFXIV appealing, and now who exactly does this guy group with to do end game group content? 

 

This is exactly the type of player you see, and will see posting on this thread, and future threads, complaining that they are bored and have nothing to do.  They blame the game because they don't want to craft.  They are not immersed because they haven't read nigh a quest narrative.  They haven't joined a Grand Company and partook in what that offers.  They have no professions and have not involved themselves in the economy via retainers.  They have not taken the time to help guild members and/or contribute to building a fun group of people to play with at end game.  They probably don't know, or care, what melding or convertible means.  All they do is fight mobs non-stop, nary taking a break, not taking into consideration the burnout factor, as is prone to happen with anything that you do, non-stop, all day long, 7 days a week  ...

 

.... and then they have the nerve to come to a forum and blame the game ... complaining that they are bored ... and have nothing to do.

 

Welcome to 2013 and the entitlement crowd.

Prettying-up wrong by dressing it up as opinion does not negate the fact that it is still wrong.

Ugh, how boring.

 

And why wait around for them?  Seriously, while running around exploring and doing quest, I run into FATES all of the time!  They are always usually up so it is really worthess to sit around town waiting for them.

Welcome to the entitlement crowd.

So much nonsense in that post. "probably one of two" a week after the game launches? There were over 1k level 50's within the first 48 hours, the game is ridiculously easy to level in. Skipped the content? There is barely enough content to get one class to 50 anyway and it's not something that matters when you are going to take that journey multiple times on one character.

As for the rest.. "they" do this and "they" do that. I thought you said that level 47 was just standing in town? You seem to have an active imagination or are able to read minds.

You my friend are what is wrong with MMO's, not the people who level fast, it's people like you who love to do nothing other than berate and complain about how other people play the games. Your whole rant labeling and complaining was based on someone who stood in town and had the audacity to be... shock.. horror.. level 47.

Welcome to the soap box crowd.

Hit 50 last night. I'll admit around 46 I just focused on fates. Group up in an 8 man party, do fates, and meet some cool people. This is my advice if you're like me.... as in someone who didn't grind dungeons for exp, didn't keep up with guildhests, or do any guild leves. Fates are bar none the most consistent exp high level in the game. But is it really "OP" if I grind for 9-10 hours straight for 3 levels? I mean you're essentially saying you want more single player ways to level in an MMO... when they're already there. They aren't as fast, but it's your choice for the pace you set for yourself. Sorry in advance for any errors...cell phones suck on forums.

I dont understand what's wrong with "standing in town" People stand around and bs all the time, if thats what they want to do then whats the problem? It is a social game after all. On a normal day in Wow there is more bsing than actual game play and guess what? It just as entertaining if not more.

Yeah well I've seen people complain about there being nothing to do on the forums and on the game at around level 25.  Which is just the funniest and most ignorant thing I've heard since launch.  So yeah, I'll have to see this for myself.

Therein lies the problem, my friend.  You speak as if it's normal to reach level 50 in 2 days ... 2 DAYS???  I mean, did you do anything at all that the game offered for those two days other than power-level?  When you have 1k players reaching level 50 in 2 days, that's an MMO culture problem, not a game problem.  It's become a culture to rush to end game, because supposedly for many of you, the game doesn't start till end game.  You, the locust on steroids ... you're the problem!

 

For the record, I am fully expecting others who think, and play like you, to flame me for the above.  No matter what you or any of your brethren say, you are the problem in today's MMORPG's.  And MMORPG's will not begin getting on the right track again, until game developers start dismissing your baseless whines and complaints. 

Prettying-up wrong by dressing it up as opinion does not negate the fact that it is still wrong.

I was running through town yesterday and saw a level 47 standing by the main aetheryte.  I think he was showing off but all I could do was feel sorry for him.  Here we are one week after the release of the game and this guy is almost at top level.  At this point he is probably one of all of two people at that level.  This is a non-legacy server mind you.  So he has obviously power-leveled and skipped all of the content that makes FFXIV appealing, and now who exactly does this guy group with to do end game group content? 

 

This is exactly the type of player you see, and will see posting on this thread, and future threads, complaining that they are bored and have nothing to do.  They blame the game because they don't want to craft.  They are not immersed because they haven't read nigh a quest narrative.  They haven't joined a Grand Company and partook in what that offers.  They have no professions and have not involved themselves in the economy via retainers.  They have not taken the time to help guild members and/or contribute to building a fun group of people to play with at end game.  They probably don't know, or care, what melding or convertible means.  All they do is fight mobs non-stop, nary taking a break, not taking into consideration the burnout factor, as is prone to happen with anything that you do, non-stop, all day long, 7 days a week  ...

 

.... and then they have the nerve to come to a forum and blame the game ... complaining that they are bored ... and have nothing to do.

 

Welcome to 2013 and the entitlement crowd.

 

You sounds like you're from the entitlement crowd yourself, slagging at others for playing how they want/wish. 

Myself, I quit yesterday at 30, game is borring as hell, I had to drag myself through levels. So i can see what that guy is trying to point at.

It's threads like these that are so irritating.

For years, this community has complained (justifiably) that dungeons and leveling has become stupidly easy and a retarded faceroll. Now a developer designs a game where players can't just take one easy path to level as well as making dungeons harder. So then what happens? We see threads like this.

Please don't do this. There are many of us who are finally happy that we finally have one game.......ONE GAME again. Please don't make dumb threads like these. It would be better to adjust to the game or if you really need a face rolling powerlever of a game, WoW is a better choice.

 

If you are already complaining about the way it is, I doubt it will get any better going forward.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.
