When enough is enough
Is there any time in a roulette, usually dungeon one, where you will just get so sick of it that you will just flat up leave? Well that happened to me a couple of days ago.
It was night and I was bored so I decided to queue a healer for a leveling roulette for the money and clusters. I was capped at 450 stones, so really did NOT have any other reason to do this other than looking for something to do.
I get Doma Castle and I groaned, I REALLY was hoping for something easy, but fine, we start. Immediately the stupid tank zooms away, going full speed grabbing everything in sight. I finally catch up with him and was able to heal him through the first pull, but the 2nd was a wipe because he pulled too much. Do it again and we do the colossus separately then the others. Near the end of the 2nd pull, the tank types that I should be using holy and NOT glare for attacks, never mind I was using a lot of mp to keep his idiot ass alive.
Now this REALLY pissed me off. Who was HE to tell me how to play my job? By now I had had enough of his selfish, self centered, inconsiderate ass as well as this dungeon, so after finishing the first boss I just up and left without saying a word. (And believe me, I WANTED to say a LOT!)
Yeah, sorry, NOT putting up with that crap, and I hope it took a LOOOOOONG tine to get a replacement healer. ;p
Yes I have(will put in other comment)
Doma is only as easy as the tank makes it. I always have a hard time if the tank decides to pull the collossis into the next pack. Also all the mobs hit like trucks. Lazy CD usage here is bad unlike most other dungeons.
Holy functions as both damage infliction and damage mitigation but you may already know that. However its more mp efficient to use glare of youre already dumping cures and a wet torn paper tank.
So that lvl61 dungeon... the 3 purposely wouldnt stack to me and I died. I respawned and left.
Honestly, I think people tend to rely too much on holy for damage and mob control. I mean what do you do when you DON'T have a White Mage in the party? The other healers don't have anything that is an equivalent as far as I know.
There are times where I love to holy spam and there are times I don't. If you are keeping me busy with healing I DON'T holy. Despite what people might think, your health still DOES drop when using holy cause not ALL the mobs get affected by it.
Also, you know, I think the tank was the infamous Maribelle from the Aether Eureka. Anyone who tried to organize BA runs back in the day of its popularity on Aether KNOW who I am talking about, that portal stealing bitch who tried to be as annoying as possible.
If it WAS the same person, I am NOT surprised they acted like that.
Take it as a challenge. In that dungeon, tanks will do big pulls. The suggestion he made wasn't offensive. You should try it next time. This is what I do, presence of mind and spam holy. Keep your eye peeled to the tank's health bar and be ready to throw in some heals in between. Throw on those running shoes Anna!
Forgot to add, use Thin Air and presence of mind together to keep your mp up.
Trouble is Aala, I HATE playing like that. I don't like rushing constantly, it's extremely uncomfortable.
I think younger people simply cannot grasp the concept that older people like to take things slower a lot of the time.
Am I being the selfish one wanting to go slow? Maybe. But how much time is ACTUALLY wasted to simply wait for everyone to BE there before the tank starts pulling?
Annabelle - I havent touched whm in about...1 1/2yrs now. AST doesnt have stun, but all those regens replace that pretty easily.
The problem with healing is that youre gonna end up in a party with another 'healer main' that is gonna run their mouth. I get that when I play Dancer, it IS very annoying. Just folks out there expecting you to play to thier standards.
No, Im certain she got even more fired up by what I said. I aint in my 50s and aint trying to get there in a hurry, but I too don't feel like speeding through it all, all the time either.
Sorry I pissed you off.
Oh Anna :O
Welcome to 'my thoughs while playing any FFXIV roulette 2018-2019'.
PPl want to RUSHRUSHRUSH because NUMBERS and TIME. 'Pull moar', they said when i play tank. 'Healer adjust' they say when playing healer. DPS being salty and spamming single-target skills instead of AoE in a flock of 10+ mobs.
Yes, that is how i was forced to 'enjoy' the full two last years pre-Shadowbringers. The only thing i disliked more is, when other team members start pulling even more than the tank wants.
I suppose you belong to that same kind of ppl as I do.
We like to do things in normal speed and make the game actually feel like a game (enjoyable, that is) and not like an eSports (since a good portion of modern generations seem to grow up with that).
There was A MANY TIMES I wanted to drop the bucket on that overconfident-yet-don't-have-much-time-but-I'm-still-God random tank or if that healer went sass for no reason (I use CDs and everything, what do you want more :x)...
Guess we adjust...
And yes, that (so full 2018-2019 as said above) was actually the time of my total FFXIV career where I had to leave outright to not drop or say anything I would regret later. Since there's too many rude and 'negatively immature' people in the playerbase, I don't know -how- to help them and whatsoever, so I think my opinion will fall on deaf ears for them (most likely they would opt to kick me or anything else who slapped the truth in their face)
Heads up Anna o/
"Doma is only as easy as the tank makes it."
That's valid for a lot of dungeon, starting with Aurum Vale :)
Did you look at the tanks gear? I did leveling roulette on my white mage in the first time in forever and got a tank with the worst gear in Sohm Al... I get speed runs when you’re over geared but when you’re butter it’s awful for the healer.
I was doing leveling roulette as SAM. Well, since I can't remember how to play my lv80 jobs, so I may start something new. Join in progression party that was only 2 minute in. When I entered, it is copper mine hell with only one dps left. I guess the tank and healer left immediately when this pops?
I left soon after.
