With the right cross class abilities you can manipulate HQ items 3-4 levels ahead of you. You can make a ton of money while leveling up. Read my biggest crafting secrets right now. Watch exclusive video of my techniques in always get HQ items.
I'm buying HQ raw materials & HQing them into more HQ materials. Any material that stacks to 99 is my favorite to level up on. For example. I'll make HQ Dew Thread from HQ Diremite Web I purchased at the market place. There's always some random Jimmy that post a couple real cheap. I buy those until I have a stack of like 60+ & I'm ready to craft.
Here's a look at what I think our the most important crafting cross class abilities in FFXIV.
#1 Tricks of the Trade (Alchemy)
It randomly gives you 20CP back. You get this to pop 5 times, that's 100 CP back. Spend that extra CP on another Master's Mend & get 3 more chances.
#2 Careful Synthesis (Weaver)
Guaranteed. This ability guarantees progress. It'll get yuu slightly less progress than Basic Synthesis, but you can figure out what that number is going to be right away & decide where & how to use this ability. Plan you entire synth around Careful Synthesis being the last thing you do.
#3 Rumination (Carpenter)
This ability also gives you CP back & does not cost any durability.
"Removes Inner Quiet effect and restores CP proportional to the number of times control was increased."
Turn on Inner Quiet immediately. Wait for a chance to use Tricks of the Trade & move on. Watch any of my crafting videos for this technique.
#4 Hasty Touch (Culinarian)
This move will improve quality with no CP. BUT it's 50/50. I'm not sure if Steady Hand effects this ability. Either way, it is the 4th best ability to choose from. Imagine you're down to 17CP & 20 Durability. Use Hasty Touch for the hell of it. It's a free chance to increase quality.
#5 Rapid Synthesis (Armorer)
Just like Hasty Touch, this ability is 50/50. I really don't know what to say about this ability. It might get you out of a jam if you ever miscalculate a synth or make a mistake. It rushes down progress at 250%.
#6 Waste Not (Leatherworker)
This cost 56CP. I don't like anything that costs CP because I only want to use that for Basic Touch.
#7 Manipulation (Goldsmith)
This cost 88CP! Can't use this, Master's Mend & get 3 or more Basic Touchs off. It just doesn't work. I can't afford that CP.
#8 Ingenuity (Blacksmith)
"Lowers recipe level to current level for the next five steps."
I'm already HQing stuff 4-5 levels ahead of me. You can't do stuff 10 levels ahead of you, so why would you ever need this?
Check out my crafting videos coming soon.

A highlight from the Gearbox 2019 Pax East Panel. Check out this game that randomizes stages, enemies, bosses and items. No run through the game will ever be the same.
Out now for Early Access on Steam.
Death to all little sisters! I'd like to bang a Big Sister. Seriously though, this series is circling the drain. Pun intended. Jimah!
I've played through and have beaten Bioshock 2 twice now on normal and hard difficulties. The game is fun, a few changes from the original which are good and bad in the long run. The graphics and sound design are spot on. At first, I thought the graphics were a little weaker than the original, but that won't make a difference as you play Bioshock 2.
So when I say it's easier the second time through on hard, what I mean is ... it's easier. The second time through I killed every Little Sister. Killing them gets you plenty of extra Adam(Adam is what you use to buy new or upgrade your plasmids(plasmids is the stuff you shoot out of your left hand.)) That's for the noobs. Anyway killing every Little Sister will get you plenty of Adam to level up. I was so powerful at the end of my second run through I was just standing there watching everyone else fight each other. First off I would turn invisible when I stood still for a second. Then I always had two of my own security bots flying around, doing a perimeter check and their stats were maxed out. I had the Swarm plasmid maxed out and a swarm of bees would seek out any splicer in the room and eat them up. Also, the bees would lay dormant in the dead bodies waiting for another splicer to walk by to attack them. Finally, my other ally was a Big Daddy. The level three Hypnotize can take control of Big Daddies, So I had two flying security bots, a swarm of killer bees and a Big Daddy running around the room killing everything while I ate a sandwich.Read full story...
With out a doubt, you already know. It's going to be a ton of fun!
There's more videos to come! Stay tuned.
GoukiJones' top 9 favorite games from 2017. Old and new.
#9 Halo Wars 2: was the first major release for me this year that I was really into. The original came out in 2009 or something and I was still playing it up to the release of this new version. I played the new version for a little while, but as I sit here and try to recollect my experiences… There isn’t much. I don’t have much desire to play this game, it just seems to have way too much going on. I’d try to play the original Halo Wars again before I booted part 2 up.
#8 Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age: This is my favorite Final Fantasy game of all time. I was so thrilled to hear Square was planning to re-release this game in 2017. I got it and beat it again. Easily the FF game I’ve beaten the most. I plan to go back in, one more time, to max out every character. One of these days...

You get a good taste of Death Stranding gameplay with this 8 minute trailer.
I was impressed with the climbing and scaling of the mountains. The terrain looks very detailed. I hope it requires strategy and skill to move around in the world. In this trailer you get to see what the combat looks like as well. I got an Outward type of feeling as I was watching it. The main character jumps on the bike and speeds off, you can see the enemies getting in their vehicle attempting to cut him off. I'm very excited to see if those are the actual mechanics of the enemies as they hunt you down. When he drops part of his backpack he then goes back to collect it which is very cool. I can't wait to see this game fully running. I'm cheering for Kojima to just bury the competition, out on his own with this new studio.

WWE Extreme Rules 2011 matches simulated with SmackDown VS Raw 2011 AI. The matches are as accurate as the game will allow with it's extensive options. The Matches are in HD. The matches are unedited. Including Michelle McCool VS Layla (Loser Leaves WWE)
This is now the 6th PPV we've recreated with WWE SmackDown VS Raw 2011 the videogame. This is also the most accurate we have ever been. All of the matches are in HD. For the first time ever we have every match from the PPV, unless they slide one in on us during the actual event. We hope you enjoy, some of these matches are better than real life.
All of the matches have been recreated as accurately as possible. Not all match types were available in WWE SmackDown VS Raw, such as A Country Whipping Match and we also could not put a vacant championship up for the Del Rio VS Christian match, so we gave the belt to Del Rio.Read full story...
