I hate your minion. Oh no she didn't! Smiley: laugh My character is small so crafting near the bell or the retainer board is a no go. Someone always have Carby or the purple thing sitting on top of him. I'm not touch my vanity items till I get all my DOH and DOL classes back to 50. I hope the moggle keeps them ,he's holding 5 things now.

I like collecting minions (I currently have 12 of them) and have one following me around constantly. That being said I still find some things annoying:

Display of the minion name, Cait Sith and Behemoth over representation.

I do want a certain phase 3 feature to return though:

Have your minion in a an instance~!

I'll say it. Your pet is stupid and I hate you for constantly dragging it around everywhere and I hate SE for implementing them in the first place.

All the Carbuncles following people around are bad enough. I'm polite and dismiss mine when I'm inside the city, but every other arcanist has them flopping around the most crowded areas in town. I'm sure some video cards are having nightmares about blue squirrels.

About the only one I don't hate is the baby behemoth, but even then, it's already old. It's old, and I want to make them all disappear from my screen.

Is there this function in the game? Can I just not display minions?


I've so been wanting to say this. I don't even understand the draw of having minions at all, much less having them out constantly.

Do Chocobo companions fall under this declaration? IMHO the only companion that I found to be least offensive is the small Snipper minion since it doesn't float around in player's faces.

After reading this thread all I can deduce is that a lot of you guys really need to take a good look in your settings. You can fully customize targeting and add filters. You can customize which names show and which don't. You can customize everything. Even in a loaded fate I don't ever target anything but mobs because of the way I customized my target filters. And I'm on ps3.

Also as for the draw of minions.. They're there for collectible fanatics like myself!

It's not that I don't want them to be targetable. I don't want them to exist at all.

That's the only one I think is cool so far.

Aw I love my Carbuncle and behemoth, I'm really attached to them. :c I actually like seeing everyone's minions since they're all pretty cute, but I can understand how that would get annoying (not to mention straining on a computer).

My baby bat minion fits my THM rather nicely I think.

Can you have a chocobo companion and the chocobo chick minion?
It'd be a neat little family.

I have a pet rock in EQ2. It's an actual rock, and it follows me around. If your video card can't deal with those, thats natures way of telling you to upgrade!

Targeting people's minions is actually a very annoying problem on a very crowded MMO game where you have to toggle through every single avoidable thing just to get to the target. I can have the same issues during ffxi when you have to cycle through everything else other than the one mob you needed to target as well as other mmos where the problem is even worse with the super high congestion in a tiny space. The otehr thing is, less minions/pets out on screen helps those of us whose computers are not on the upper end of the spectrum. That little bit of not having to render every non-essential thing could mean the difference between a squad wipe, or avoiding death in solo.

Please also consider other possible sides before just saying this issue is a tiny problem. What is a tiny issue for one, could be a very annoying and real issue for others. Just wait when you have hundreds of carbys surrounding you in a tiny area, you might see our point then.

while i like some minions and want to have some to myself(cactuar and malboro minions please), i do think an option to disable them would be great, they just add to the clutter when it comes to those big fates and it gets really annoying

The truth is I couldn't care less about the existing minions, they do nothing for me. But I don't mind seeing them around.

I couldn't agree more with OP. I popped all of my minions once ( early access, CE, airship) and I was done. The only thing I want tagging along behind me is my chocobo when I unlock that again. I'll hope for my Coeurl to join my side one day but other than that all of these vanity pets remind me of PSHome avatars. It's like micro transaction ****.

Yeah well that option is broken... my targeting is set to mobs only, and I still get every freaking carbuncle and minion before mobs... frustrating as ****.

It's not broken at all. Works fine for me. I think you're doing it wrong

Um, i've seen people riding a white horses about 5 times. I has all the right neighing or braying sounds and just look so out of place in a FF game. I look away from it because i'm jealous every time I see it.

If you play long enough you'll have it all. Even those 'exclusive' mounts Legacy players have. It's always a matter of when rather than if.

Nope. Companion and Minion can't be summoned at the same time. One or the other.

Also, that's a targeting problem, not a minion problem. It's funny I can't target minions/carbuncles at all.

I hope you join us when the transfer becomes available Olo.
