My old staple, Alt-C doesn't seem to cut it in FFXIV. How can I tell if I should attack the funguar or not?!

Much appreciated

Don't bother with the funguars. Their poison is literally the pits.

Also, the colors next to their names in the unit frames match the colors of the difficulties in ffxi.

Enemy Toughness
An enemy’s degree of difficulty is represented by the color of the circle located in the extreme left portion of the unit frame. This display takes into account whether the player is solo or a member of a party.

Red – Incredibly Tough
Orange – Very Tough
Yellow – Tough
Green – Decent Challenge
Blue – Easy Prey

If you look next to the name of the monster you have targetted there is a little coloured dot, which represents the Too Weak >> Impossible to Gauge system of XI. However, it is almost completely useless because certain families of mobs will simply steamroll you even if they have blue dots of weakness!

All the marmots are dead, funguars are all that are available.


Thanks a ton for the info.

Very bottom, color coded from blue to red. easy prey to incredibly tough.

Edit: wow, a bit late on that one, haha

Follow up question:
My favorite part about XI was the grouping. No one seems to be grouping right now though. Does grouping come back in style once I'm out of the super-low levels?

se has been tweaking grouping mechanics a lot to make grouping better, so I dont think we rightly know right now, but they said its a priority so I hope so.

I never grouped in FFXI until at least level 12 or 13.

Perhaps it is similar in FFXIV though I note a lot of people under level 10 are passing judgment that grouping is not worth it.

Maybe these people have forgotten what is was like pre dunes in FFXI! It was a long time ago!
