About: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (x)

I lay my entire plan on the table for the four day phase 4 beta test of Final Fantasy XIV. This character will carry over, so it's full-on! My Goal: level 20 MRD. Level 20 GLD. Additional Job abilities. GC, FG & Bird. Get ready to rail Early Access.

Okay so here’s the plan …

I want to get to endgame as a Warrior ASAP after release. I don’t want to play MRD full time at end game tho. I just figure there are going to be a lot of nuabs playing & I need to be in a leader’s role or I’m gonna die a lot. Plus it’s easier for tanks to get into Duty Finder & I’m familiar with MRD, since I played that in the beta. With that said …

Let me just clarify a few things. I was in phase 3 of the beta, so I will get access to phase 4 of the beta this coming Friday. August 16, 2013. I’m expecting it to kick off the same time the other phases started around 2AM. Yes, I will plan accordingly that day to be awake at 2AM, PWNn!

If you have an invite to phase 4, you can start playing on Saturday. Phase 4 is open beta, but if you did not apply earlier for it, you will have to register on Saturday & wait for an email. I have no further details on this. Don’t be so late next time. Don’t be a Jimmy!

Phase 4 of the beta is capped at level 20. So you should be able to get to a Grand Company & get your Chocobo. All of that stuff isn’t hard to miss, it’s part of the main story. Once you beat Ifrit, you’ll know. Okay since we can only get to level 20, there’s going to be a lot of free time to do other things in the game. When I first played, I got to level 18 in less than 2 days. I was doing a lot running around & side quests. Not this time. Fuck side quests. I’ll run around as an Arcanist at the end of phase 4 & do Jimmy ass side quests, if I’m bored.

Main goal #1. Get to Level 15 -> Get an Airship pass. The moment I land in Gridania, I hoof it over to the Conjurer’s guild & get my CNJ up to level 2, maybe level 8 depending on how long I think it will take. The reason for this is, CNJ unlocks Cure at level 2 & Protect at level 8. Having Cure would be nice, it’ll save me GIL on potions & I’ll just have another way to heal myself in battle. Can’t rely on the nubfarm.

At this point I may stick around Gridania & get a couple of more abilities, just so I have them & later on I can test out with different builds. For example:

Feint - Level 2 Lancer: Delivers an attack with a potency of 120.
Additional Effect: Slow +20%
Duration: 20s

Keen Fury - Level 4 Lancer: Increases parry rate by 20%.
Duration: 30s

Straight Shot - Level 2 Archer: Delivers an attack with a potency of 140.
Additional Effect: Increases critical hit rate by 10%
Duration: 20s

Raging Strikes - Level 4 Archer: Increases damage dealt by 20%.
Duration: 20s

Then it’s time to get the fuck outta Gridania. I sure will miss all of those green trees. If you continue the main story quest you should be on your way to Ul’Dah now. I believe after you complete the story quests here it will be time for your first dungeon. Since you can only get to level 20, I don’t think there is a super rush to keep going with your main right now. I’ll stop & get 1 more subjob ability while I’m here.

Second Wind - Level 8 Pugilist: Instantly restores 25% of maximum HP.

Thaumaturge moves are pretty worthless for MRD at this point. So I’ll skip that class all together right now. Second Wind from the PUG is huge for the MRD, restore 25% of my HP instantly? Yes, I need that. While playing MRD during phase 3, I would drop to low health in party without warning & very fast. This could send the CNJ in your party into a panic mode & he may not be able to heal you fast enough. Having stuff like Second Wind, Cure, & Hi-potions on you are going to save your life & keep your entire party alive.

What about Gladiator? You need GLD to get to Warrior with your MRD Jimmy. I know, I know. But at this point (again because of the level 20 cap) I don’t know how big of a deal it is to rush this down. Maybe level him up quick to get Flash, but you don’t need that. You should know how to control hate during battles without needing that skil. Still tho, if I think there’s time, I’ll do it.

Now I’m gonna finish the current storyline with my main job. Get to level 20, beat Ifrit, get to a GC & get my bird. So my MRD is now level 20, now what? Now I go back to Ul’Dah & get my GLD to 20.

No crafting or gathering during phase 4 for me. I only want class levels. After I get my MRD & GLD maxed out, I’ll decide what I want to do. I’ll probably want to fool around with Arcanist. I really want to be a Bard endgame, I love everything I hear about that job. Plus, I’ve always liked playing Archer. In Final Fantasy XI I was a healer, so I’m not too excited about doing that right away in this game. White Mage style anyway, I want to see how the Arcanist is set up. I love pets!

If all of this stuff comes to light & I can complete it by the end of phase 4, I think I’ll be off to a good start. I really want to craft & gather, but if I don’t get to endgame (lvl50) early & with my FC, I’m going to get left behind & I’m not having that. Don’t be a Jimmy!

The Monsters of FFXIV

By: goukijones Aug 8, 2013 | 2 Comments

Here's a video that showcases a ton of monsters from the NEW version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Check me out on Malboro server. Join the Gouki Linkshell. Roll with TAW.net. Hollatchaboi!

Thanks for watching. 

Here's a look at how my systems are holding up running Final Fantasy X|V & streaming with settings maxed out. Check out my results in the 2 live videos I made plus a bonus look at BatRastered's score.

When I first started to download the benchmark yesterday, it told me it would take 3 days at 1 point. This game is going to get railed on day 1. I recently purchased a brand new laptop, hoping I’d be able to stream the Final Fantasy from different locations. As long as the internet was ample. Well I tried it from home today, where the internet is ample. Here are the results from the laptop. This clip is from the Twitch stream.

Now for the desktop streaming the Fantasy.

Special bonus, here’s what it looked like on BatRastered’s stream.

I’m disappointed with the laptop’s performance, but I’ll mess with the settings & see how it goes. If I can’t get it to my satisfaction, I may just send this Jimmy back. Too expensive for it to NOT do what I want.

*Update we have improved the performance on the Laptop, but running Xsplit at the same time maxes out the CPU.

Thanks for reading.

 

Square Enix still hasn't told us the official release date for the next phase of the beta or when the early access will begin. They have released a video of all the dungeon intros. Same stuff from the beta, so some of you have played this already.

The dungeons are good. They are matchmade across all servers. There is no waiting. If you want to do a dungeon, you will get to do it. It's called Duty Finder, Google dat. I will be on the Final Fantasy XIV. I will be streaming. I will be on Malboro, join up with the Gouki LS. I will be rolling with TAW gaming for raids. Don't be a Jimmy!

GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Final Fantasy XIV & other Square Enix games at E3 2013.

Murdered Soul Suspect was 1 of the worst demos I saw. Besides that Wolfenstein shit. Another freezing dark room packed full of Jimmys. I was literally holding myself up from falling over. Because of what happened during this demo I have made a new rule to sit/stand near the door of game I don't know anything about. I so wanted out of that room. 

"Excuse me, pause for a second." Then I get up & stumble out over 20 nuabs sitting on the floor. Dear god never again!

I'm super hype for the Final Fantasy XIV. I've been playing in the beta the last 2 weeks & have already logged well over 40+ hours. They did a really good job on COMPLETELY REMAKING THE ENTIRE GAME. Again I digress, BatRastered had the best take. 

"Isn't it just XI HD?" Yep.

Thief. Thief looked so bad during the press conference or where ever I saw that game play demo. Maybe the Keighly. The characters just running up to you to get smacked & the terrible, horrible animation. 2004 type shit. Pass. 

I played the FFX remake for like 15 minutes. All I watched were cut scenes with 0 skipping abilities. Fuck that.

Then there was something called Final Fantasy XIII-2 X3 4 Jimmys Lighting Returns. Ridiculous! Why can't Square let go of that horrible game?!

I am hype for that Final Fantasy XV tho. Even tho none of it is quite real just yet. 

Thanks for watching & reading.

GoukiJones, BatRastered, Choke, and FnJimmy talk about Final Fantasy XIV reborn and how it's a real game now that you can play and everything. Then delve into the crazy reversal of policy that was the Xbox One this week.

So this is the new live stream from YouTube we've unlocked. When we stream from you YouTube you can watch on your cellphone. We couldn't do this before on Twitch. Let me know what you think below. Don't be a Jimmy!

Thanks for watching. 

Featuring GoukiJones, BatRastered, Choke & FnJimmy. We talk about Salt Fest & Final Fantasy XI. Plus other video game & relevant nerd news stuff.
