And you haven't given a functional example of why it would be.
Listen, if you're not going to actually read what I write don't bother replying. I have posted multiple times what functional examples could come out of this, but you like to just continue saying "lol why would I want to cast fire 1 when it doesn't do sh*t?" Just because you refuse to accept, or just plain skip over, what I've posted as functional examples doesn't mean they aren't useful.
The only examples you've offered are downranking spells with a potential movement penalty. I've addressed that. If I've missed something, please, for the love of Pete, be a sport and quote it...but if you quote something that could be summarized as a downrank, I'm going to mock you...ferociously...for being a thick twit.
Most of your arguments against the idea I've posted either a. don't even apply or b. are, to be frank, stupid. Why the **** should a replacement party member be able to quickly kill every EM-T monster in between them and their party quickly so he can reach them swiftly?
Did I say they should be able to, or did I say that the fact they're NOT able to is why sneak/invis are considered necessities? And if group and solo content are segregated to one extent or another, would that make sneak/invis more or less of a necessity?
I have not attempted to personally insult you in any way, I've only stated what I thought were logical conclusions from the way that you were presenting your argument.
Your inability to decipher plain English is not my problem. When they reference how FFXI was more about group play and FFXIV will be more about something else, what is the logical inference? That it's going to be more group content yet casual so not group content but still group content? WTF do you think it could mean? Honestly? How in the blue **** can you read something like that and not put 2 + 2 together and realize that not nearly so much of the game is going to be tuned around groups as it was in FFXI?
When you stated that the game is going to be tuned for solo play, ie WoW, when the devs have only said that it's going to be more casual I made the statement that the game isn't going to be like WoW.
No, you didn't say the game isn't going to be like WoW, you told me to stop thinking it was going to be exactly like WoW. Your inability to communicate clearly without being an insulting brat is no more my problem than your inability to interpret plain English. You didn't make a comment about FFXIV, you told me to stop thinking something. It was a stupid inference because I've stated more times than I can count in these forums that I neither expect nor WANT FFXIV to be "exactly like WoW" or even so much like WoW that it feels familiar.
When you stated that EM monsters kick everyone's *** and that you can't solo past 20 I stated that you probably don't know enough about the game, because it's flat-out false.
I didn't say that EM monsters "kick everyone's ***"...I said that there are a great many classes that have a very hard time with EM+ mobs. Stop inferring stuff that I didn't write. READ THE FRIGGIN' WORDS AND INTERPRET THEM BASED ON WHAT THEY MEAN, NOT WHAT YOU THINK/WANT THEM TO MEAN.
If you want to continue to 'debate' this subject any further, I recommend you actually reread my posts so that your arguments and objects actually are relevant to the idea purposed.
I've already re-read your posts, so I recommend that if YOU want to discuss this subject any further, you be a sport and quote what I apparently missed, because all I see is blah blah downrank blah blah movement speed blah blah crap.
Quote it or knock it off.
