Why does Square send me video in a language I don't understand. About a game I don't understand in English. Classic Jobs return in Final Fantasy XIV.
This first video, I have no idea what is going on. It looks like a raid, but it would have been spectacular if this was an American team or at least a team that was playing in English. I can't tell what is happening. FFXIV still looks good. That's probably all it is still. Good looks.
Classic Final Fantasy jobs are being added to FFXIV. This shouldn't surprise anybody. When the game was released jobs were Thaumaturge, Marauder and Pugilist. I've never heard of anything like this. Well maybe I could imagine what a Marauder does. Now they have added Black Mage, White Mage, Warrior, Bard etc.
Is this game still doomed to fail? FF14 is in its second year now. I believe they are charging the Jimmys for it now too. Are you playing FF14? What do you Jimmys think about the MMO market? Has it died out completely? Jimmys are too busy playing League of Legends and Starcraft on the PC now. Diablo III May 15th 2012. Don't be a Jimmy! Vote, Comment & Share!
My 2nd FFXIV boss guide, Titan: Lord of crags Lv34
So we've all been having fun in the last couple of weeks and apart from the odd tough dungeon nothing really poised as a real threat.. Until now!
This has easily been my favourite fight so far as its enabled me to play a real support role and oversee the battle.
I struggled with Titan for a good few hours until I found a decent party through Duty Finder. Most players will be under equipped for the battle so make sure you have all up to date gear for Lv32-34
It's in Japanese but it's pretty obviously about customizable player houses.
No idea how much these will run for, but you can obviously customize these a bit. Gotta make some (virtual) flips!

What's up with these secret Square videos? This was posted a few days ago, but if you didn't have the link to it, you didn't even know it existed. A lot of Jimmys involved in 1 fight. PURE HYPE!
I haven't been this excited for a game in years. I really don't know what to do at this point. We're 2 days away from early access & Jimmys is flipping out all around the world. Me, I just want to level something. Stab something. Let's go!
Thanks for watching.
Should be a short one tonight and late...

Haukke Manor is a level 28 story quest dungeon. I'm a level 28 MRD & Zero is a level 25 BRD. We had some nubfarm Monk on this squad. Don't be a Jimmy!
Leave any questions below. If you have any suggestions for that Imp & Skeleton, I'd love to hear it. Make note of all the Tiny Keys. You can't get the last chest if you don't pick up all of the Tiny Keys.
Thanks for watching.
A guide to beating the first endgame raid boss, Ifrit 'Hardmode'
For those that follow my twitter, (@ZeroUktG by the way) you may know I finally reached endgame last week and from the get go it gets real!
After you finish the main quest line you will be sent to Vesper Bay to grab your first endgame quest you must head to Camp Drybone and the beast men stronghold to unlock the battle itself.
Ifrit HM was the first endgame fight upon beating the main story quest line. This is an 8 man fight which means there's no room for error, he hits very hard. His abilities are the near the same as Lv20 and the fight is fairly similar but just be aware of your surroundings, Ifrit's moves do follow patterns that are easy avoidable.
Depending on your instance party it's wise to take a PLD for stun support and BLM or SMN for their AoE limit break. Both PLD and WAR are able to tank Ifrit with ease as long as he is positioned with his back to the party.
Front cone attack, should only effect your main tank. Deals minimal damage to all in range. With DPS attacking from behind this should be no problem for a quick heal to your tank.
This will target a member of your party with an AoE attack, it's easy avoidable but depending on your tank setup have your PLD or WAR keep stun on cool down to interrupt this ability and avoid missing crucial heals and spells from the casters, if you are hit it can deal critical damage. In phase 2 Ifrit will cast multiple Eruptions so don't over do it with the stuns, he will build up resistance.
A knock back AoE attack that deals around 600 damage, can be avoided by ranged DPS and healers depending on your positioning.
At around 75% he will start casting Radiant Plume.
For now he will only cast 2 versions of this and the order up to 50% hp will always be Outer rim then Middle. For casters and ranged DPS, stay far enough to avoid Vulcan Blast but be aware he will cast radiant plume so interrupt whatever you're casting. Later on he adds one more cast to this ability but I'll go over that in phase 2.
From the start of the fight around every 10-20% of hp we will warp to the side of the arena then zoom across the map in a line, if anyone is caught by this it will deal critical damage. To avoid this, crowd to the side of Ifrit or At 70% he will add a clone you can stack inbetween and after 50% he will add a third.
Phase 2 Infernal Nail and 50%-0%
Like normal mode Ifrit spawns the Infernal nail at 50% but this time he will place 4 down, it's always important to go over the kill order before the fight, start at the one next to Ifrit and work your way around clockwise, if you have a BLM or SMN have them use the AoE limit break to kill them off quickly.
If you do not have AoE limits then have a Melee DPS limit the first nail, focus attack in the 2nd and 3rd and limit break the last. Have the best geared member always use the limit for maximum damage.
If the Infernal nails aren't killed by the time limit it's instant K'O and a restart for the fight.
During phase 2 Ifrit uses all above abilities and Incineration twice as much. And adds his 3rd clone to Crimson Cyclone.
Every 30 seconds he will cast his 3 tier Radiant plume, this time after his middle plume all party members should stack up against Ifrit as Radiant Plume will cover the entire arena. The order is always run In/out/stack with around 10 seconds with each cast.
Ifrit is always a fun and challenging fight and hopefully your weapon will drop more frequently than mine.
Once I'm geared I will have Garuda and the dreaded Titan HM written

How do you make money gathering? Here's a few tips on leveling optimally & making dat GIL at the same time.
Leves are a great way to gain some good XP on your way to your next level, but what if you're out of leves or you just want to save them for crafting? Get your daily Grand Company gathering missions done. Only turn in HQ items for a maximum bonus. How to make GIL with this method. Gather an extra group of 10 or 20 HQ items. Put them on the MB (in groups of 10 only) to sell it to the lazy gatherers that just want to turn it in real quick.
Take left over NQ items & put them on the MB for as cheap as possible. Most items sell back to vendors for only 1 GIL, so anything more than a GIL is worth it. Just get rid of that inventory. I for 1, don't have any room to hang on to NQ nubfarm items.
Final tip here is to always check the board to see what is selling high that day you plan to level. Check what area you're going to & what items are available. Make sure you get 99 of those during your gathering. With decent gear you should pull 30-40 HQ items you can sell too. Deals Jimmy!
Bottom line here, always check your Grand Company daily quests. Know what items are peaking on the Market Board & grab some of those. It's okay to get back a few levels too because you can get extra HQs & extra HQs mean extra GIL!
Don't be a Jimmy! Thanks for watching/reading.
So You Thing You Can Gather airs every Thursday on Gouki.tv. You can find me on Malboro rolling with [FC] TAW.
