Ugh agonizing finish to a Titan EX run today. I made up a party in PF and the party was decent enough. Few wipes that probably could have been avoided but for the most everyone grasped the fight and we were making it through heart phase regularly. The last try we did (probably 5th run overall) were flying through things till the second add phase. Things got a little sloppy and the DRG died (maybe gaoler landlisde?) and think one other person but we got through it and were just in the home burn stretch. At about 13% all of a sudden caster uses LB3 on Titan (maybe because someone was saying for DRG to LB but he was dead so BLM did it instead) and in the big flash from Meteor the double weights were nearly impossible to see and we all pretty much died under them cause we couldn't see. Had him down to 5% before the wipe. If BLM holds off on LB we have it but because nobody could see anything we wiped. I seriously wanna cry. So close.

lol wow. that freakin sucks dude. i've had that happen before too. caster LB in that fight is a VERY bad idea. but sounds like you're getting close. couple more parties and you should get it down!

finally took another fc run for ramuh ex. no one had done it since last sunday. had to take a pug. took us the entire time, but we finally got it. now to get to where we can farm it. had the mnk weapon and the tank ring drop. of course the pug takes my ring.............ugh. i don't care if i didn't need it. its my trophy. =P

Yeah 5% is about as close as it gets lol The thing that really pisses me off though about the fight is that there's always at least 1-2 people that bring down the entire party and cause the failure. If the fight wasn't so reliant on everyone else I would have been cleared it. Like when I just did my SMN relic and the HM Titan fight, 1 DPS died pre-heart and the other 2 died like halfway through the heart. We finished the entire rest of the fight with me as the only DPS. Now why can't the same thing be said of Extreme? If the other shitty DPS wanna keep dying why do I constantly have to pay for it? It infuriates me to no end. I know the fight perfectly by now but every party I join its the same problems. There's no excuse by now for people to still be getting hit by Landslide, Weight, and bombs. I just wanna get 1 good, cohesive group and finally get this thing done. The fight is not nearly as hard as people are turning it into if they just do what they're supposed to.

/rant

Grats on Ramuh EX too. Sucks the guy took your ring but you'll be fine. You got a nice cheevo for your trophy I guess lol Can't wait to give it a shot. The Ramuh HM fight was pretty fun but it's probably the easiest of all the HM primals. Hoping EX is a bit more challenging. Gotta get through Levi and Mog King first though. Tried Levi twice now and I got the beginning mechanics up to the first Tidal Wave down pretty good I think so hoping to keep at it and make more progress soon. Only tried Mog King once and went WHM and it didn't seem too bad. One of the tanks didn't really know what he was doing which kinda hurt but doesn't seem like it's insanely difficult.

haha yeah. its a pain to get a full group thats good, but thats meant to be so that its harder for players to get carried through content. wish you were on our server so i could try getting you a decent group for it lol. with all the buffs, it REALLY shouldn't be tough to get it down. people are just bad, i guess? the mechanics aren't that hard to dodge. just pay attention and relax. we actually stopped doing carry runs for guildies as an fc. carrying them through would only hurt them in the long run. if they can't beat easier fights like this, they'd be screwed once they get to fights that are actually harder later on. these are the starting fights of the game. once they facesmash and learn the fight, we'll get them a good party. but not until then.

Yeah kinda hope we stop doing carry runs for our guys too. It doesn't teach them anything. They never learn the fight and become a better player. They just feed off the rest of us and scrape by. Like for example, we helped my friend do Ultima last week and my other friend said he had to raise him like 6 times during the fight... But we got him through. He didn't learn anything from it, just praised the other healer (which i thought was funny) said thanks a million times and moved on. We've carried almost the entire FC through Garuda EX too. It's not helping us as a FC if people are getting carried through stuff over and over. When you get to the big boy fights (like Titan and T5) there are no carries. If you're not learning from previous fights and becoming a better player, you're only gonna hurt us in the long run in tougher fights. But we'll see. I'm gonna put it up in PF again tonight and see how it goes. Not fucking around with it anymore. I wanna get it done.

lol yeah. just don't be afraid to cut a pug loose if they aren't pulling their own weight. do what you gotta do in order to win.

in other news, i managed to get 2 sands over the weekend due to the hunts. i now have both an 110 body and weapon =D

also, did you guys know Ashley Johnson (Ellie from The Last of Us) is the girl at the end of The Avengers that gets interviewed and says something like "Captain America saved my life" or whatever.

Sherlock is such as amazing show. I can't believe the quality of each episode and how it keeps getting better and better. S3E2 was so damn good. Can't wait for DW to come back with Moffat.

So. . I just started playing Persona 3. . . Sweet.

@LightR I heard Sherlock was a great serious. A Few co workers had advised me to give it a chance.

New small form factor build coming in soon. I'm not sure of the exact specs but it's gonna be a very high end build. Found a line of gigabyte mini-ITX motherboards that has 3 PCI slots so I can slap in a sound card as well. Current rig is showing some age and being that the LGA 1155 motherboards are now discontinued there isn't much to salvage but the storage and powersupply (which I can't use anyways being that it's non-modular). I would slap my HD 7970 in the new build but it's a little too power hungry and loud for such a small space. Gonna sell it to a friend and get the 780 and spank Dragon Age, Witcher 3 and whatever else.

Going for an all around minimalist setup as well. Cable management is gonna be tricky with such a small build but I'll make it work.

Probably gonna roll with the bitfenix phenom or maybe something even smaller.

How the fuck did you get 1500 seals already and buy 2 sands? I've done all my daily hunts, my weekly for all 3 weeks now (including this week already) and a few random spawns i'm only sitting at just over 200 seals.

i'm now at 500 so i'm close to getting my 3rd, actually. lol. joined a bunch of hunt LS's, which really helped knowing when they spawn. and our server has a site that tracks the open windows for each. so you know zones to search. also got lucky and had a log drop on one of my kills. so that definitely helped a lot.

Bastard lol I really need to join one and find a site like that for my server. I got lucky and when i got out of ST just now an S rank was up in Mor Dhona. When I got out I just saw a ton of people running so I followed and shouted for an invite and got one. Died twice cause his AOE taks up a HUGE space but whatever. I got my full 50 seals. Nice Soldiery and Myth bonus too. I'm up to 265 seals now so slowly making my way up there lol

lol pretty much. got my 3rd last night =P people were pulling fast for awhile, but i eventually got better. did 3 ST runs, didn't even see an oil =/ think i'll hold off on doing more hunts til i get one.

This SSD is no fucking joke. It doesn't do everything as fast as I expected, but I now randomly reboot my computer just to see if I'll notice it.

Yap, SSDs are neato and pretty awesome for bigger games.

Gonna be rocking a 512GB MX100 on the new build pretty soon. Ain't no one got time for harddrives.

Has anyone any plans on getting Driveclub, i just see so little interest for it in here

#2322 Posted by MethodManFTW (25780 posts) -

@The_Last_Ride: I'll play the PS+ stuff, so if that blows me away, then definitely but I doubt it. I think I'm probably more interested in The Crew, but not wildly interested in either.

#2323 Posted by starwarsjunky (24735 posts) -

didn't feel like grinding ST this week, so i just took the smn body =P didn't even SEE an oil after 5 runs. it just wasn't gonna be in the cards. not to mention if i end up getting my HA earrings to drop tonight, they're BiS anyways. i just know how shit my luck has been with tank drops in 2nd coil. only drops i really need now for BiS are my feet and earrings which drop in T6 and T7, respectively. the rest i have already or i want the unweathered piece instead. even the ring, the i100 weathered is arguably better than the i110 high allagan due to the stats on it. that and its T9, so i won't be seeing it anytime soon. lol. and once you can beat T9 you don't really *need* it anyways. not til the next patch, at least.

#2324 Posted by Terrencec06 (3551 posts) -

@The_Last_Ride: It looks good. Every blue moon, I'll get the itch to play a driving game. If it reviews well, I might pick it up.

#2325 Edited by The_Last_Ride (72237 posts) -

@MethodManFTW: i have both paid off, so i am getting them both

I'm so torn, not sure if I want to buy TLOU ps4. Seems like a waste of money since I own in on ps3. But gamestop is doing %50 off if you trade in the ps3 copy and buy the ps4 version.

#2328 Posted by MethodManFTW (25780 posts) -

O.O

Sources confirming Google to buy twitch for a billion.

money is so weird lol

#2329 Posted by MrSelf-Destruct (13142 posts) -

One day, someone will buy Google for a google.

Is that even a thing anymore? I remember I was in like, the 3rd grade when that was announced as the last number. I guess people realized how stupid a notion that was and stopped using it. Not before a multi-multi-billion dollar company decided it'd be a groovy business name, of course.

Hell, if you're gonna go all out like that, why don't you drop the 212 and get one of those nifty AIO water coolers? Not sure it'd even fit in that case.

Looks like a great build, though. Hopefully, I'm an RN next time I upgrade, because I want to splurge like that on a good build. Just once.

I checked into it and there isn't any real performance increase in water coolers, they just look neat. And yeah, this is something I would really like to do just once, just to have done it.

I've only done 1 ST run this week. We went with a full FC party and had an oil drop at the end but i got outrolled by 2. I've been considering just shooting for the UAT and saving my soldiery to buy the Weathered Laevateinn and then using my sands when I get it to upgrade that instead of my body piece, but it seems kinda pointless in the long run since I plan on going back and housing my relic after I finish getting everything to 50. With the customization Novus is easily better than the Laevateinn, just a fuckton more time consuming. Guess it'll be worth it in the long run. Least that's what I'm trying to tell myself :P I just unlocked MNK last night so 20 levels to go on that, and then 34 levels to go on my MRD and I'll have everything at 50 and can focus solely on my BLM till I get it where I want it to be.

Finally forced my FC to do Titan last night too since it was our static night and we hadn't done it in over a month. We only had 6 people so we had to pug a DPS and healer. Got a WHM and BLM and the first few tries were horrible. After a few wipes the BLM kept trying to vote abandon (which I thought was funny cause was one of the people having the most trouble dodging) so we kicked him and the WHM asked how many needed a clear, so naturally we said all of us. He started giving tips and while me and him were going over some things with the rest of the group we got a MNK to replace the BLM and he tried helping too. Surprisingly the WHM stuck it out with us for the whole hour and the MNK stuck it out for the last 30 mins so it was good that we were able to get the full use of the time and people didn't just ragequit on us and were actually helpful. People still had trouble dodging but it was definitely getting better as the time went on so I think if we stick with it we might have a good shot at getting him down after a few more tries. Managed to get to the heart phase back to back times at the end which was a first lol I'll probably still try and get the clear on my own this weekend since I know it'll still be a bit before we can clear it as a FC but it was good to at least see some progress from everyone. I think it definitely helped that I've done the fight on my own enough to know the entire thing in and out so I was able to give better tips this time around other than, "Oh yeah I saw this in the video", and the WHM and MNK were also a huge help. Hopefully everyone is on again Saturday night and we can give it another go. I'm really gonna start pushing this thing till we get it done.

depending on the class, the UAT weapons are still pretty good. esp if you upgrade them to i110. thats awesome to see everyone getting close to getting it down. just gotta whip their butts into shape! its a big hill to get over, but once you can do it, it'll help a lot to get you ready for future content. the fights now are just the base of whats to come. just get them to do it more than once a month. lol.

Just ordered a new gtx 770, hoping it'll fix my disconnect issues. basically every 4-5 times(if not more) that i'd teleport to a new zone, i would get dc'ed from the game. turns out its a common memory leak problem with radeon cards 7000+ series. didn't really want to spend the money, but i couldn't take it anymore. and since my current one is 3 yrs old now, it was probably time. that and i wanted a new keyboard for shitzngigs. =P

I think they're also great for space. Depending on the MB, it can be a headache fitting a large air cooler in next to RAM with ridiculous heatsinks (like the Corsair Vengeance I have). I never got to that issue, however, because my current case was too slender for the 212 to fit. I wanted a new case anyway, so I ordered a new one instead of switching coolers. Hopefully, my RAM won't be an issue. If so... "uh oh, honey. Looks like I need an expensive cooler now." :P

I've got a friend that wants Ellen Paige to be Ellie.. I'm sure she would be great but personally I think she is old for the roll and she probably isn't super excited about working with Sony after her deal with TLOU at first and also her "accidental nudity" in Beyond.

As much as I love Ellen Paige, she could only fuck this up. She's too old and missing too much of what the character needs. In fact, unless she's playing a witty high school girl, a psychotic high school girl, or a bread crumb, don't even call her. Maisie Willliams is damn near perfect for the role, but I also have my doubts about her. She's not very good at acting distressed or mournful - two things Ellie is most of the time. If she can work on that, though... oh man. I blame Ashley Johnson and the amazing animators at Naughty Dog for making the character virtually unachievable on the big screen.

Also, I'm bummed to find out that Lady Stoneheart won't be appearing on the GoT series. Not surprised; just bummed.

Ye, I'm usually a staunch believer in 7-8 hours of sleep a night, but after pulling two 24 hour shifts this week and staying up late all the other nights I guess I needed more than just a nap to recover.

@commonfate: What does a shift for you entail? Patrolling the base looking for Solid Snake? :P

Something like that. It's just a security shift. Fortunately, it's with other people so we just take turns doing w/e while the rest of us play videogames or read. It's usually my one day of the month to go all out on a video games and play a game for 18 straight hours or so. I managed to play through The Last of Us start to finish w/no breaks.
