In Final Fantasy XIV every few days rare monsters appear. Referred to as an S Rank in the game, killing them are worth a ton of points.
With the release of the PS4 version only a month away, we know there will be many new faces on Eorzea. Here's how to not look like a n00b even though you are one.
Choosing a server (world)
There are only two datacenters, North America (located in Montreal) and Japan. Pick a server from the DC closest to you. If you want to play with the Gouki team, pick Malboro (NA).
Choosing a race
Hyur (Human): Really? Zzzzzz.
Elezen (Elf): About the same size and shape as human, can get a bit taller and has pointy ears. Good wizarding material. You think Legolas is the star of the LotR and fantasize about Spock.
Miqo’te (Cat people): A tiny bit smaller than humans, but not annoyingly so. Have cat ears on top of their heads and whiskers. You’re probably into furries and/or MLP.
Roegadyn (Giants): Big, muscular. Great for tanks or if you really want to see the detail in those armor pieces and have poor eyesight or a small monitor. You like bodybuilders, Muscle magazine is your porn.
Lalafell (Hobbits): Tiny, round, cute, and annoying. If you are a pedophille or just like trolling people, this is your dream race.
All kidding aside, the race you choose doesn’t matter much. We’re talking about 1-2 points in your base stat. If you REALLY are in to min/max when you MMO and you can’t live without those 1-2 points, follow this rule: Tanks should pick Roegadyn and choose Sea Wolves for the sub race. Melee DPS should choose Hyur Highlander. Archers should choose Elezen Wildwoods. Casters should choose Elezen Duskwights and Healers should choose Miqo’te Keepers of the Moon.

Optimize your FFXIV gathering route with MasterDotL.com; get the most out of those unspoiled nodes in the least amount of time.
MasterDoTL.com is a site where you can choose which items you want to gather and we will put together an optimized route for you to travel to help you get the most out of your gathering per Eorzea day.
Choose from the list of items you can gather at unspoiled nodes, we will sort them by time, level, how much GP you want to use for that node, etc to come up with the order you should move through the list. Other sites have separate lists for mining and botany whereas MasterDotL was designed to be a single master list assuming you have maxed both classes and wish to gather continuously to get as many valuable items as you can each Eorzean day.
We're still working to make the site better every day with more pro tips, new nodes as they are added and even smarter sorting. We plan to have the list update dynamically with Eorzea time as items expre they'll move to the bottom of the list and work their way back up so you won't even need to scroll.
Create your free account today and start gathering all the things! (And by all the things I mean Adamantite ore because I need a lot of it.)

Beating turn 2 of Coil is pretty simple. If you don't mind dealing with enrage mode & have 3 healz.
Team Gouki & [FC] TAW down turn 2 in 1 shot w/ a new strategy. Visit Gouki.com & TAW.net for more info. This aired live on Gouki.tv. Coil streams every Weds & Saturday.
Basically what's going on here is we wait until ADS gets down to 1 click & he will go into RAGE MODE. At that point he won't do anything else, but spa AOE's. So we just spam AOE heals & burn him down with DPS. Pretty easy, I was kicking myself for not trying other ways after wiping on this stupid balls for weeks.
Thanks for watching.

The new patch releases in just a few weeks.
Those Alexander mechanics look rough... PUGs gonna have a hard time lol.
What’s going on with Gouki.com? Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood is, that’s what’s up. Here’s my review…
I love it. I’ve been playing it non-stop since the release. The game is a lot of fun, I highly recommend you giving it a shot. You can play up to level 35 for free now. If you do choose to give it a try make sure you get in the Primal servers and join the Malboro world. That’s where I am, with Sugar Ninja and Bat Rastered. Come join our Free Company -AKA A Guild- Kefka.Read full story...
