Whitebox for HQ.

LOL, you remind me of one of my HNM buddies from back in the day. He always said, "Whitebox or GTFO". It was hillarious. The crazy part was he actually did it. In some cases, offering no real benefit other than for the "Be blinded by my glory" effect on all of the players of lesser riches. Arrogant? maybe.... an *******? definitely. But in a way you just couldn't hate. Think: Captain Jack Sparrow. Ah, good stuff.

Anyway, back on track. Do we NEED them? No. Do we want them? Sure, why the **** not. Gives some people an extra level to shoot for, and in some cases can be very beneficial. If all else fails, it is always good for a laugh.

Pretty sure this is what SE has been doing these past 2 updates.

My channel with FFXI battle music and hard to find songs that were not even released on Original Soundtracks.

I also plan on uploading FFXIV music when the game is released.

I "personally" don't want white box and HQ's in FFXIV. I'm sort of on the fence, and if they do add them I won't mind, but "personally" I feel as though a item should represent itself, a item is what it is, and if you want something better you get something else. I dunno if that makes much sense, but yeah.

Normal quality item = no box
High quality item = white box
HQ+1 = blue box

@ CommanderKing

Well, don't be too down on SE yet. I don't think they are always out for a laugh at the players expense. At least they haven't started HQ bells er......................
my bad.

I was all about the white boxes. I actually had a lot of stuff signed +1. +1 is my user title on our LS forum. I mean, I have a Shigeto Bow +1 and a Hachiman Domaru +1 signed by my character. So yes, I leveled up woodworking to make the bow, then deleveled it to raise smithing to make my Haubergeon, Hachiman Domaru, and Hachiman Sune-ate +1's, among other things.

Personally I'd rather we have something a lot more fleshed out. Have crafting be a minigame, and the better you do, the better the result. If you do really well, you get good stats and maybe even a special trait on the item.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Thanks, man. I was reading HQ as headquarters, not high quality.

This isn't about whether there will be HQs or not, but if there are HQs, we need the whitebox.

No, I'd take it a step further. Make it a golden, shining, glittery box to make it really pretentious. Especially if HQs still do as much as +1 extra Attack for 300 times the NQ price.

What about making the HQ a visual change in the armor. Lets say you have a plate armor and its all gray, but with HQ you have a little golden trim on all of it.

So that if you are walking in the HQ people will notice even before checking you.

I'm really hoping items are more varied than HQ vs NQ
