I traded my pure heart chocolate to a gay guy in my company. The heart shaped firework items are not gender-restricted, though!

It's not only that, even the trash mobs were pretty hard hitting, especially the Elvis (Aveis) >_< I could usually tank up to 3 dungeon mobs no problem but these guys wipe the floor with me 0_0

Cool I didn't have to get on!

I thought there would be a part where you need diffrent gender, just didn't think it would be so easy.

I guess I'm used to FFXI's events XD

that hasn't stopped people from accusing SE of being homophobic because the chocolate type is tied to character gender.

I'm all for equality, but some people are just.... /sigh

but then again, that IS the official forum...

It may help if you position all of them to your front, as you can't block/parry attacks from the flank/rear, and obviously dodge the red aoe attacks.

Doing those, and assuming you're not massively in undergeared, it would be a healer issue.

Stone Vigil is the first dungeon that really starts hitting hard. If the tank loses hate on a monster for more than like 10 seconds someone will probably die. I died on the last pull (3 Aevis) with full cavalry set and popping all my buffs as a Warrior. Died the moment the healer tried doing anything except a physick on me. Before even any of the lightning ball aoes appeared X_X

Yeaaaaaa the chocoletes are tied to gender. who should really be offended are we men. Why do we get "Bitter" ? Oh because men don't love. they showed that in the quests apparently. =\ lol


Aaanyway

Second attempt went a lot smoother, but it was still the longest time I've spent in a dungeon- about 70mins.

It's kinda obvious at this point but having a good group really makes all the difference, heck I've 3-manned the first boss and 1/3 of the dungeon till another dps showed up to speed up the process. Bless those Japanese players lol.

Yeah, I don't want to pull the cliche "It's the healer's fault!" but it might just be the healer's fault. My second try I didn't have nearly as much problem till the 3 Elvis group before the last boss.

On my part I might have been reckless with the pulls, on my second attempt I was using every precaution I've learned from WoW back in the days. But those Elvis are still painful.

Yeah, us Warriors don't have anything that helps deal with sudden burst of damage, we could only hope that the DPS kills one of them fast.

You should have Inner Beast that reduces damage by 25% (?) but it requires 5 stacks of Wrath to activate.

For me, its not the mobs though. I absolutely hate the bosses. In the second boss fight, RNG plainly hates me, the tornado keeps spawning near the cannons making it hard to shoot the add with it.

Though, its not as irritating as Titan. Out of all the party members, he just have to encase me in rock. Throughout the fight, he only encased me 3 out of the 4 times he does so. lol

For the second boss, for that reason, its best if you do not stand behind a cannon, nor anywhere in a way such that the tornado will hit the cannon. (I have no idea how the tornado works...)

When I am on cannon duty in one of the runs (As a bard), I will usually stand a little bit to the left/right of the cannon. (And have no idea of that will work or not...

Wait till you see Hard mode... Or Extreme mode, for a ride.

I'm think about picking this up for my PS3 to feed my MMORPG fix.

What should I expect or the first thing i should do?

You should expect constant Free Company (guild) invites from presumably-well-meaning people as long you don't have a FC indicator next to your character's name. (And also, to blacklist at least a few gold spammers every day.)

That aside, the game works quite well on the PS3, but you should probably make sure to have a USB keyboard if you don't already. I personally play the game on my PC but with a PS3 controller, and quite like it that way.

yes I do indeed have a USB keyboard but can't I just use my mic to talk. Also is there any real notable difference between PC and PS3 versions?

There is no voice chat built-in to this game; my friends and I use our laptops or apps on our phones/tablets (like Skype, or TeamSpeak, etc.).

On the PC you can push the graphics performance a bit higher if your computer can support it, and loading times (between zones, etc.) are a little bit faster... but otherwise, it's essentially the same. It's mostly just whether your PC can handle it and preference.

We had Turns 1 and 2 on farm with 1 person out of our static group MIA (we picked up a random dude from the FC to fill the last slot and swapped jobs around) and today we walked into turn 4 for the first time and it took us all 90 minutes, but we beat turn 4. My hands were sooo shaky the time we cleared it @_@:;; Half our members went in blind and the other half had beaten it with another static that had since fallen apart, so it was a great learning experience all around for group synergy.

Then we tried turn 5 @_@;;;

And in the entire time I've done the Binding Coil of Bahamut (about a month or longer), I have yet to see a single healer's item drop. So I'm thinking about just filling up with all myth items : /

Have they fixed the issues with lag for this yet? I just remember it being horribly unresponsive in Australia. reason is that I just realised I still have a 3 month game card sitting here, was thinking of leveling my White Mage a bit again. I think, I was like, lvl 30 or 40? I cant remember.

The data center change in patch 2.1 helped a good deal with it, though I am in NA, so I don't have personal experience on how Australia is for it.

Those are the reasons I abandoned North American servers and went over to the Japanese servers. I have no idea why — it could be because of cultural differences or because Japanese servers are less populated than American ones — but FC spam invites and gold-sellers are practically non-existent on the two servers I'd played on, Pandaemonium and Chocobo.

So, if the constant spam bothers you, it won't hurt to give Japanese servers a try. Tonberry, if I'm not wrong, actually has more English-speaking players than Japanese-speaking ones, despite being a Japanese server. I understand Australians have effectively adopted the server (and probably most Singaporeans, too), hence ratio of players.

IIRC, those are the low pop server?

TBH, I still hate how SE decided to go with regional servers, getting things done outside of prime time is such a pita.

The Murphy is strong in Coil.

For example, between my main and alt, I've cleared 1-4 like 30+ times, and I've yet to see any casting body drop(or for that matter, the casting jewelry that i need)
