  1. Planning on getting this for switch but I have a bunch of questions; I would need to restart and I want to know a head of time what I’m getting back in to. 1. I read that if have 5.0 I can skip the 1-4.0 story at character creation, is that true? That still means you start at level 1 and need to get up to 110 still though, right? 2. What’s the meta for jobs right now? The first class I focus on I really want to get the most use of my time, so is there any job that is good at the most events? 3. I see on YouTube people fighting this giant gold octopus, and a black dragon - what are they? I think they drop weapon skins or something from what I can tell? Anyway, would love to know so I can get back into the game - thanks all.
  2. http://hiroba.dqx.jp/sc/public/charamoveguide#flow Had some free time and I was looking to come back to the game; have an account issue and need to transfer before I get serious. From what I can tell I need to.. 1. Have all the same content registered on both accounts In this case I have the Wii (v1) and PC (v1 + v2), so I will have to re-buy both for the new account. However I also have the 3DS version so Im not sure what Im supposed to do about that? Not sure If I have to rebuy (unless I want to play that again that is) 2. Have a spare character on each account 3. Have a security token enabled (and the info required to do it) on each account *or digital iOS token My issue is that when I registered on the Wii I used a random name, security question, and birthday. I know the birthday, and have access to the registered name and address but I want to transfer my character to an account with a name, address, and security question I will remember in a emergency. Does anyone know if they will ask for the security question during the transfer?? I have a hard time putting tons of hours into a game if I don't feel like I'm in control of the account fully. In the mean time I will be resubscribing on the 3DS so I can clear up from 2.1 to 3.5 / max Warrior and Mage.
  3. I just came in here again because I saw ny name pop up; he's right I really don't care. It's not exactly "clutter", there's long-winded points on both sides but we were debateing SEs MMO's in a time where solid information is lacking in both. And even if I disagree with Alex's methods occasionally, he is pushing for DQX localization pretty hard, he's entitled to his own opinions and I don't think it hurt anything having all that core information out there. Plus it was really high tension before fanfest, so there was that >.>
  4. I didn't say that though, "They are taking money from DQX to put into FFXIV"; in fact I actually agree with you - they take profits from FFXIV and DQX to fund their other games, it's been company policy since FFXI lol. Not to say I think that is smart, but, it creates a large buffer for development costs and as you said yourself, look at all the games we have right now because of it. There's no point even arguing, we all love DQX, and some of us love/like/tolerate FFXIV, but we all love SE's concepts; at the end of the day we all hope they both get the treatment they deserve because lets face it, we still live in a FPSMOBAPLATFORMSIMAR for iOS world at the moment lol. Also when I said raids or other events I was thinking more like dynamis (w/ relic equivalents) or something like that from FFXI, not like WoW raids. Doesn't mean I'm right though; I didn't miss them in 1.0 or 2.0, it's probably more to do with the change in difficulty across the board. *p.s. If 4.0 doesn't change the FFXIV formula we will for sure see at least up to a 100k active player loss, no question. Like next year at this time instead of 500k we could be anywhere from 300-400k+. They would have to be so, so stupid at this point though. I agree about side quests @tribalether, they are much better in DQX. And this is from someone who loves the story in Final Fantasy's games; DQX just feels like an actual main series game level quality story- all the way through.
  5. @Alexander making a long winded, conjecture filled post doesn't make it true. It makes you a liar. You went from saying you've used RebornBuddy to saying you've never used THAT program; but ones you programmed yourself ( o really ? ?); because you couldn't purchase a key to verify. More than that your argument is others don't know how to use a limited porgram properly? When no one else can back up the claims (or has even tried to) that you just made about bots? YOU SOURCE AND RESOURCE ALL THE MATIERIAL YOURSELF? That statement is the biggest lie in the entire post - you flat out deny LuckBancho and any credible documents sourced for both FFXIV population, and development progress; but claim you alone have the technical skills to figure out the true statistics with unnamed methods? Completely delusional. I recoded my entire router to run a shifting VPN function so I can play DQX anywhere in my house, at anytime. Scrips, botnets, you're using literal 2$ words to describe basic skills picked up from any forum - don't even have to go to school these days - its not threatening. You didn't quit 3 'months' ago - you've changed the line from a year, to six months, to now three. No, literally, nothing you've said is backed up. Having a script that teleports and reposts hunts or LS chat is not the same as farming endgame or relevant content with complex, fully timed (in combination with complex dungeon mechanics) skills/positionals; maintained properly, at not only bellow, or standard damage, but as good as the best players- neither is it the same as bottling all classes to max level. You make claim after claim, with no evidence, and no purpose other than to make the game look bad for what - your own ego? Get real man. *you either mentioned the same things I did, or things standard to MMO's when actually relevant to the topic; use those skills to clone me some Gen VII Pokémon next month please Ok, so I'm done addressing Alex. *I came back in to EDIT this after I saw some posts change, which is now going to make me a hypocrite for calling out long winded posters, but now Im coming back to make this; just thought it was worth mentioning for the 10th time to people who have never actually played the game... but P.S. All DQX patches are literally copy/paste, it's just relative to a different games content format, so that's kind of a joke. New story > New crafting > One new token boss > 1 event adjustment or extra award (they change tower, pyramid, royal lab; the only endgame events btw)>New armor/weapons(tied into crafting)>sometimes a new map>QoL>Minigames/ Random nonsense Is that really different from two dungeons>new raid(8/24)>new weapons/armor>>new story>new crafting>new primal>QoL adjustments>housing adjustments>mini games/ random nonsense The endgame in DQX is literally Korean Runescape, with a JRPG story (or GW2 for that matter). All stats are seemingly irrelevant down to a 10-20% marginal efficiency boost (which still costs/requires unreasonable time unlike the rest of the gameplay) - you farm the same bosses 100's of times for accessories to fuse together for +1's - you do this because it's the only content. All endgame events besides pyramid give you these same boss accessories to be fused. The glamour system is archaic, and after they fixed most of the base problems with FFXIVs, it's pretty glaring. Not having a raid, or significant/relevant large player event has hurt DQX in the long run. Eight man fights are more like two separate four man fights in DQX. The game isn't built for it, and most endgame relevant coin bosses can be farmed without effort in even baseline gear. I also hate tomes, but if you're not capping them without trying already, then you're for one thing - not really playing the game much, and second - probably don't enjoy it much anymore/at all to begin with. EQ, EQ2, and WoW all had currency relative to the system. Can you, like others who I've talked with who hate tomes actually describe what you think should be done differently? Like in all honestly, I'd say you can't. What we need is horizontal progression and more -game events; not taking tomes from casuals If it comes here, I will swap like I previously mentioned, but it's mostly because it's a newly translated DQ game.. After I clear the story, if expansion number 3 doesn't fix the game, I will be back in FFXIV for Stormblood - which is going to be one of the greatest MMO expansion releases of all time. DQX is top 10 games, but to me FFXIV will always be top 5; it feels like EQ2 done right.
  6. Thank you Tangerine; Alex, unless you have proof it's not true. You've already said you aren't current in FFXIV so you're not testing anything relevant bots or otherwise. And RebornBuddy is trash; can't do anything complex or relevant besides gathering and faceroll lowbie content -probably utilized in account resale to train up story completed level 50 base package accounts. Nobody is botting anything to max level via fates in our actual playerbase, again a lot of what you're saying is conjecture meant to be defer the conversation from any real definitive information about the game. We do have a lot of Gold Saucer bots just like DQX casino bots though, that is true. But just like Tangerine said a lot of the punishments given to people by GMs are swift. Alex the funny thing is you going after FFXIV repeatedly, unprovoked - in many unrelated threads. We have other people here besides me who play both, and look at the things you say thinking "Well that's just not true."
  7. it's worth mentioning there are only two reasons why DQX had AI, 1. JP only population = smaller size, 2. They wanted it to feel like a tradition DQ game with the ability to play solo. With more than 2.5x the population and differently formatted content, it's more efficient to play with others in FFXIV And again, the bots you're mentioning don't do relevant content/ or even nearly current - And they do not perform full Heavensward rotations during ANY dungeons lol, especially not for dragoon. Level 50 rotations for those classes in low mechanic dungeons, maybe. Most of what you're saying is conjecture though. And are we really debateing bots? I know you've never played DQX to see them, but they can farm nearly 100% of content, especially if it comes down to raw RNG. This includes progression, economy influencing, or quest content.
  8. I'm also dropping whatever I'm doing if DQX gets localized; including FFXIV for at least like 2 patches. The story alone is JRPG nirvana lol. I can't wait to be able to read all the pyramid text too, it's in my top 5 for endgame events. EDIT: No dude I mean it's genuinely hard, like think about any of the 50+ HM' dungeons sync'd or 50-60 dungeons with AI's - making them smart enough to not die, with little support, but slow enough so that you cannot out farm a party in efficiency. Plus the way they coded pets is different than companions; they cannot code squadrons like pets, and to code them as companions but still bring them into a dungeon with you requires a minor engine overhaul. It's not bad practice or lazy; bots are pretty bad in comparison to real player speeds; they also don't work for new dungeons or even the last batch most of the time. I'd say about 1/4 as good as if you were with others, only advantage being it's automatic. Worth being banned? Hell no lol. But yeah they can, and are. Yoshi's team is BIS.
  9. Well actually, it is incredible hard to program AI, especially to be more effiecent then the current gen of bots. They should know, DQX has the best party AI in the business. That said, no Squadron members will not be able to be used in party until next year. FFXIV 4.0 trailer and content reveal at fanfest was MASSIVE to say the least, and it's just the outline; there are two more Fan Fests before the expansion release, where even more details will be given of DIFFERENT and NEW content on top of what we just had announced. Thank you Harftfield and MKVarana, sincerely, for the only relevant information being thrown around currently.
  10. You could mention how it's mainly a horizontal progression game, and that every class has tons and tons of min-maxing (+/-) for any fight, event, and situation you can think of. Not to mention an unlimited combination of overarching skill builds (until you max every class that is), plus the fact that they WANT you to max and play every class. But most of all, I guess that you can do all of that in a timely fashion without spending 12 hours a day.
  11. Just like Trump and his supporters, some people will not concede to statistical information. :\

      ...it might be higher).


      Generally only 60% of registered whites vote, 8~10% of blacks, 30% of hispanics, and I think 40% of asians, but I'm not sure on asian americans, vote, who are registered.


      So it's hard to say really what the underlying vote is.

    3. ignasia


      Sometimes you have huge swaths of +10~20 of the registered populace coming out to vote that normally don't. I don't have any stats on that, so I can't say for sure which presidents. I know Blacks came out overwhelmingly for Bill Clinton, highest % of registered, until Obama.

    4. ignasia


      At least in modern times. Blacks were more active in the 30's to the 60's, then participation dies in the 70's until Clinton.

  12. Judging by the reactions to each of our posts I'd say it's plain and simple who provided clear, and structured evidence for their argument. A list of games you might have installed isn't proof, it isn't descriptive experience. I'll give you the F2P titles, but you've already said on the record your level of experience with FFXI as being minimal to none, and proved how much you ACTUALLY know about FFXIV based on conversational quotes alone; I'm still calling BS on guild claims, world firsts, and every other accolade you just listed. You've been saying for years that you played FFXIV and any other MMO you might have tried solo, and that you always enjoyed them better playing solo; especially with no forced grouping anywhere. Statements just like this are in your post history throughout the DQX forum. Now when someone calls you out on paradoxical situations, you try and act like you've been an MMO world tier player your whole life -nonstop. Interesting. Moreover you started by saying you had never played MOST of the games you just listed, which neither I or anyone else here have forgotten. I won't sit around and listen to you lie, and then try to build onto the lie over time, it's genuiely boring, sociopathic behavior. I'm glad you're spending time posting elsewhere, and I hope you further the campaign. I have no need to argue with you, I actually accomplished providing data that proved everything I said about FFXIV, and it's relation to DQX was true; people have seen that and agreed. Judging from your time deactivated, I'd say I wasn't the one shitposting or wasting people's time. EDIT: And more than all of this, my closing statement is don't listen to ANYONE who doesn't provide real, statistical information. Shouting loud, emotional conjecture doesn't convince anyone you're right - bad mouthing people, developers; anything without evidence clearly descriptive of the offenders own behavior, and documented actions - makes you look uneducated, lazy, and foolish. I don't believe you're winning any battles of logic - I haven't seen one chart, one spread sheet, or one graph about population density over time from YOU; so.
  13. edit: pm sent to people involved for some sort of resolution
  14. edit: I hope launch starts at 60-65 level cap at least, and even though it's impossible - with the QoL from 3.0-
