A list of ( retarded ) things you've foundFollow

Thought it would be fun to list stuff that made you go "...why?" while playing.

I'll start with:

- Having to individually select the materials when repairing an item even though the requirements are listed right there.

- Having to find the equipped armor piece in your inventory in order to unequip it.

- How there's nothing to tell you which piece of equipment got broken once you get damaged gear status.

Erm, this is a thread listing big holes in design, not a thread to convince others the game is bad.

Honestly Gad, I play more than you. Why would I if I didn't like it?

edit:
Doesn't mean I don't facepalm myself like ten times per hour when playing it.

Then you should have specified that it's things that make you go "Why did SE do that?" rather than "Why?". People who try to convince me that the game's not worth playing because it's so horrible DO make me go "Why?"

Because your post looks like a slate/moan/complain just like 9999 other threads created.

How about something decent like
- A mob not far from Gridania which can kill you in 1 hit with 3k damage and this is VERY close to gridania ;)

So true.
And to a lesser extent
- inability to tag mobs and gain sp/xp/loot from killing them if in another zone than the party leader.

I can understand that they might have made this to avoid people from abusing the party bonus sp, but why not just makethe sp applicable to people within certain range instead of totally zeroing it i don't know, it's annoying to have to wait for 30+ minutes as people run from Gridania to Camp Bloodshore (no anima left) and not be able to do any fighting while i wait.

Erm, this isn't that kind of thread. At all. So that's some serious fail on delivering sarcasm right there.
No one has complained about anything remotely similar to that in the entire thread. We aren't complaining about lack of content, we are merely listing lack of common sense in the most basic lines of design.

- Having a separate menu for giving items to your retainer and for putting said items for sale.

Its not even a different menu, you still need to click on the item from the list, and choose sell or seek before setting the selling options. So its like the same menu with its features divided in two.

Why isn't this a single menu, I do not know.

Really? Running from Gridania to Limsa Lominsa takes almost no time at all?
I get one teleport a day with this Anima regeneration, and i'm almost out already, and if i want to do all 8 rank 20 leves without gathering (i get plenty of sp without leves for mining as is), i have to go to each and every town to do so, same for trying to get the best crafting leves to level my crafting jobs, and if i want to buy something, i either buy what i first find (and it's almost always overpriced), or run around every bazaar in 3 different cities (and even if i use an online database, i may still end up running between Grin and LL).

I don't mind having to run from a city to camp, but i hate having to run between majoc cities, and i do the round trip almost everyday for leves.

Well, to be fair you could pay someone to teleport you if you run out of anima.
I usually do Uldah -> Limsa -> Teleport to Gridania.

The daily ammount of anima is enough for at least one good teleport a day.

Or you could you know be smart about your play experience? From Limsa to Gridania takes less time then San d'Oria to Jeuno. Or Even Windurst to San d'Oria for that matter. Ahh but we are playing a "modern MMO's right? No need for travel anymore.

After you get your anima back into an acceptable range try this:
- Start in city A, do all the leves you want, turn them in.
- If you are in Uldah walk to the closest city of your choice, otherwise teleport to city B.
- Do all your leves then walk to to city C.

Guess what, you've only undergone 15 minutes of walking and your anima should regenerate before the next reset! Bravo! You have played intelligently!

Or even better, you could forgo the 2 leves you would get in city C and never have to walk at all! Its not like leves give you @#%^ all for experience past level 20 as DoW/DoM.

I guess I can come out of the lurking fro this one :P It's not so much the stuff that made me go 'why?', it's more like 'huh?' & 'derp!' that I got while experiencing some of these.

Repair/gear damage related:
- Having all of my non crafting gear damaged while crafting or gathering
- Having to repair so **** often
- Having to make 'unequip all - equip all' macros because of that
- Having to repair items myself or seek other players to repair them to 100%
- Having to only repair jewelry myself or seek other players

Crafting related:
- Failing miserably while crafting recipes I could easily craft at low ranks - on much higher crafting ranks
- "Obtaining" recipes which aren't listed anywhere in my log, while being able to craft items without recipes in the first place
- Having to click multiple times, through multiple screens to even get to the crafting minigame
- Miss-clicking rapid synthesis because the craft options didn't scroll to the top after choosing a craft skill at bottom
- Having to play in windowed mode all the time when I craft to be able to check recipes, materials, components or having to write them all down to their basic forms on paper. Which I haven't done since the 80's for a game

World design related:
- Being almost forced to stay in one starting area, limiting my progress options, versus running out of anima, versus running and falling asleep while doing so, from zone to zone
- Dying on purpose in order to be able to return to a camp for 0 anima, versus running (my travel technique is evolving :P )
- Making the zones outside cities huge but with little diversity, almost generic, and killing my will to explore the world. Sure it's pretty but I don't care for more of the same behind the big rock in the distance.
- Making the Black Shroud map a maze dungeon with corridors
- Walking straight from a desert type zone (Thanalan) into a lush green forest type (Black Shroud)
- NPC populated areas feeling lifeless (even with players cramped around NPCs or big city squares looking like robots on 'stand-by')
- Having no clue about Eorzea or the world I play in, unless I read from 3rd party ressources

Market Wards/AH/Item accessibility related:
- Almost everything in general, pretty much hurts my brain still and makes me avoid that aspect of the game entirely

Battle related:
- Locking onto a mob that runs away, even if I expect it to, and instantly wanting to chase after it and then, while still locked, running into a tree or a pebble, furthering the distance and failing to nuke the fleeing mob one more time to kill it
- Not seeing what or who or how I'm fighting during leves where there's, for example, 3 more players doing the same, with double the mobs they're killing ---> /aoe on ---> pray
- Failing a leve I boosted to 1400 or so guild marks or over 20k gil because the game decided it was a good time to crash
- Being kicked out of party if I crash
- Friend assisting the leve still having my leve, the one that I lost when I crashed & was kicked out of the party
- Leve ratings (stars) not being accurate enough tricking me into death :O

Leveling related:
- Being a high physical level and half the rank on main class, making mobs show to me in lower difficulty colour, blue, and skilling up painfully slow on those due to the big physical level - rank difference (or so I was told)
- Dodos in general now give me no SP, and it's only them, regardless of their rank .... now this one really confuses me. Why do the fat birds hate me? :(
- Sometimes earning SP, sometimes not, on same leves, same rank, same dificulty and mob colour - in term making me waste guardian aspect
- Making me be a ***** and use basic attack to skill up faster
- Tricking me into thinking that if I can do leves rank 20 - I can kill the mobs around that camp out of leves too

So, it's a long list of stuff that I can't or couldn't wrap my head around, and I'm sure there's more. I still enjoy playing FFXIV oddly enough :D no matter the WTH-factor of some issues or the sheer frustration some of the features hold.
But.... from my own experience, and limiting it only to myself, FFXIV is now best consumed in short intervals, multiple times a day - instead of long hours continually.

just type /equip (whatever slot you are unequipping)
*example: /equip body
^this will unequip whatever you have in your Body Slot. Also works for Battle actions, traits and abilities. ;)
to equip type /equip (your slot here) "(item equipping here)"
*example: /equip body "Bone Scale Mail"
^Self explanatory. ;)
The correct name for each slot whether for body, legs etc.. can be found on the macro page.
http://ffxiv.zam.com/wiki/FFXIV_Macros

As for the broken armor ordeal. Yeah, I hate that. Broken items should have their text in red or yellow corresponding to their degree of damage. Also a damage bar I feel would be more appropriate to the number scale they currently have or maybe both?
Having to unequip items before repaing them is also a pain in the A. The NPC can repair them, why cant we?

Hmm, to add to the list...

*Being able to browse someones bazaar that is across the map, but not being able to purchase unless right next to them.
*Distance matters when we fight mobs, but it doesnt really matter all that much for mobs to fight us.......
*Like I said above, the repair NPC can repair items/gear while we are wearing it, why cant we?
*giving an item to your retainer take almost aslong as killing a mob.......

Thought it would be fun to list stuff that made you go "...why?" while playing.

I'll start with:

- Having to individually select the materials when repairing an item even though the requirements are listed right there.

- Having to find the equipped armor piece in your inventory in order to unequip it.


- How there's nothing to tell you which piece of equipment got broken once you get damaged gear status.

just type /equip (whatever slot you are unequipping)
*example: /equip body
^this will unequip whatever you have in your Body Slot
to equip type /equip (your slot here) "(item equipping here)"
*example: /equip body "Bone Scale Mail"
^Self explanatory. ;)


ooh :o

Here's a good one:

- How you browsing someone's bazaar stops and disables your character from moving.

They could fix that, and it would be immediately followed by the following:
- Being unable to repair gear because I only have Bone Chip+1s and the armor requires Bone Chip. Agh! Why can't I pick the mats I want to use!

Before you complain about something, try to understand why it was done that way.

I don't know if it's a bug or not, but I was able to repair 3 rings with a single Bone Chip +2.

I DID consider that. Before complaining about someone complaning reason that we're pointing out flaws in design, not their justification.
You are basically saying "yes, its a bad design, but there's a reason for that". Well, uh, no. Redesign it then. Come up with a way to get around that. SE is full of professional designers who get paid to do this.

And it doesn't take much imagination to say that, for example, if you have more than one version of the same item a window could pop for you to select which to use.

One thing that kinda bugs me is out of all the million extra pointless windows they have in the UI, they decided to make the stats for items appear in the same window as the inventory, up top you know. If anything needed an extra window that does, it should have a seperate pop up when you mouse over an item. Having it in the same window makes the entire window get bigger and smaller when you are mousing through items, and it makes the item list jump around to clicking something with a mouse gets annoying. Theres spots where I can just move my mouse to and hold it there and the window twitches rapidly.

Everyone wearing broken gear because they can't remove their starting equipment without buying a replacement, which the NPCs sell for silly amounts of money and player-made items being impossible to find.

How much do the NPCs sell the undergarments for?
I actually planned on finally getting around to making some later tonite when i get home from work, but if the price isnt too too bad I may rather save the mats. =P
