Why cant we have access to Coil via DF ?Follow

Does anyone know why we cant access it by DF also ? SE could implement iLvl equipment restrictions to it, because I'm tired of shouting or organizing a date for it.

Because it's not content that you can reasonably accomplish with a randomly-formed group.

Frankly, I'm surprised you can do any of the HM primals that way. I'd have expected the DF to stop filling groups for you at WP and AK.

You have a point but you still can go far with DF, because I was able to beat garuda and titan with it. Also, t5 is where it gets complicated but other coil turns aren't that difficult to get through.

Mostly because how Coil lock out works (by every objective completed in each turn), it gets too complicated to DF for SE.

I really don't see why not either, IMHO the coordination of a random group is greatly underestimated. I have had plenty successful HM garuda and Ifrit runs, I think it is more about how the average skill/equipment grows within the community.

Probably it's meant more as a community bonding exercise, it's probably the same reason why Chimera and Hydra are not in the Duty finder either.

As I said, it's all about how locked out on Coil work.

Say you didn't get to do Coil after reset, you are fresh. You queued DF, you get into turn 5, now you are stuck at turn 5 and CAN NOT go back to less than Turn 5. Woo hoo, you just forfeit your chance to farm a lot of once a week iLvl 90.

If you want DF you will have to separate EACH objective of EACH turn into a separate queue.

Not each turn, each objective of each turn, Coil is locked by each objective of each turn not just the turn. Assume each turn has 3 objectives, that's 15 options to tick for DF.

No, only when weekly turn reset hit. And like I said, if you accidentally DF into a higher turn you have just forfeited your loot chance of rare iLvl 90, not until the weekly reset. So DF is not feasible.

Quick question, as someone who has never been to the Coil, has no sights on the Coil, and is frankly miles away from the Coil..

Why do they call the different parts of it "Turns"?

Bulletin Board feature is coming for recruiting pre-arranged groups.

Looking forward to seeing how it works.
