With the Crystal Tower in place and different Item lvls of content being around. Gear can finally progress at the correct lvl. That AF+1 was pretty much there to cover for CT gear not being there between DL and Allagan gear. The new process of getting gear looks like it it be getting drops and combining/upgrading, for both gear and weapons. Should be an interesting patch biggrin.gif

My experience with this game it's that it's just not for me. I felt that the game was fun till level 10, after that It got real repetitive and I felt that the fact you couldn't walk and cast a spell (I was trying to be a Black Mage) was a bit annoying because it canceled my casting. It's a bit sad really because I wanted to do raids but the game bored me out before I got to that part.sadsmiley.gif

I will be updating the topic in a few hours to reflect on the upcoming updates and what not :D

post #4935 of 5512
Months after acquiring my GTX 760, and MORE months since closed and open Beta, I am back in Eorzea, my fellow OCNers.

Question. Why is the texture on maximum so... You know what I mean. Especially on close up. But THAT is a compromise I am willing to make for ARR and its superior content and image. What I CAN'T stand is that FXAA.

So I come bearing a question. Is SweetFX the only way to go? nVidia CP does not allow me to force some AA on the game, and I am getting sick of those flickering trees and staircases. I am VERY willing to forgo some framrates (even with my 760) for at least MSAA x 2.

Just been trying login, still 1-4 hours away until 2.2 patch is here!!. Looks like some great changes and I'll be hitting Revenant’s Toll asap and try to get my head around the new stuff. I'm planning on paying someone to do "the gardening" weekly in my free company rolleyes.gif (I got too much stuff to do) -How much do you think the going rate should be?

considering we still don't know what will actually come from the gardening process i would say it is still too early to say. lol

Alright did a minor update to reflect the upcoming patch!

 

More updates will follow roughly 24-48 hours in the patch, SE typically likes to wait to release more in depth details.

 

 

 

To give any new viewers and continued supporters an idea of patch 2.2 without checking out the notes, here is a brief summary

  • New Coil turns which drops new Allagan gear
  • Leviathan (hard mode and extreme)
  • 1 new dungeon (ruins of amdapor)
  • 2 new hard mode dungeons: Brayflox + Halatali
  • New Hildebrand story
  • New story missions, probably leading up to Leviathan.
  • Extreme mode King Moogle
  • Kobold and Sahagin dailies
  • New tomestone (Allagan Tomestones of Soldiery)
  • New artifact armor
  • Vanity system (Mirage Prism)
  • Expansion of the dye system
  • Crafters will be able to alter gear designs using a “template” system (official name TBD)
  • Wait command in macros will be allowed in-line.
  • Free Company alliances
  • New hair styles (Yoshi-P has said each major patch will have a main focus on a single race)
  • Ability to indicate number of items to store in a retainer
  • A retainer can be hired for a Free Company's estate "From patch 2.2 onward"
  • Ability to hide (again) quests from the HUD duty list
  • Change luminary Workbench and table visuals

yup more updates just as I was fiddling with my retainers. The market place has GONE HAYWIRE!!. I checked out why people are trying to charge like 4x the value of most things, everyone needs all of a sudden 45 potash, peacock ore, coke, animal fat, etc... and it costs 2500 company points each one. Its going to be a week or 3 before the market comes back and I don't expect the prices will be the same again. I'm thinking those resources will average out to $4,000 each one, instead of the <$3,000 before. Meaning level 70&80 stuff bought off the board is going to be even more expensive than it was already. The better and faster way is to trade in tombs at Revenant's Toll for level 100 gear, unless your set up and buy/make some level 80 gear full HQ and meld, that would equal out to just under level 100 gear, I'm going to make some level 80 gear with full meld because I'm trying to level up lots of characters at a once (and for fun!!), just waiting on those realistic market prices. tongue.gif

Update: Just had a look at the craftable lvl90 gear!, wow this is now going to get interesting
