Rest is okay, but that made my day. They finally aknowledge that an mvp system alone is not enough to stop the trolls.

That is a worry. The new dungeon - Pharius Sirius - looks great, and I think Warby may have been right, the boss will be Siren!

Also, BCoB gear is going up 5ilevels, thus making it the BIS gear now pretty much instead of just a trade off.

Does anyone else feel like they dont really answer the questions asked?

"with duty roulette, can you go to dungeons you haven't unlocked"
"yes, you can do any dungeon you have unlocked"

The clip they teased for Extreme Titan:
-Multiple gaols at once.
-Multiple landslides at once.
-Mini-Titan pops.

But that's assuming the stats raise with the new iLevel, which they didn't say was going to happen. Otherwise they still have the same general stats as Relic when it comes to primary stats and one or two different stats for the secondary stats, meaning you still need to decide what is most important for you. I mean, yeah, iLevel has its own mechanic itself to consider, but I wouldn't say a higher iLvl alone suddenly means it's the best gear in all slots, period.

Nope - biggest highlights - possibly some hope for those (like me) crippled with latency issues meaning we're limited severely in what content we can do at present.

This could simply be a change in preparation for the upcoming iLVL gear requirement for entering certain instances as well.

Doubtful.

ilevel requirement for titan HM was stated at 70, and crystal tower is i level 55 to enter, with i80 gear rewards.

Is this what they said? Because this doesnt make sense. Wanderer palace gear to get ilvl 80 gear but titan requires full darklight and a garuda weapon? Im thinking you have this backwards.

I didn't necessarily mean for anything that currently exists, as that would be pointless. Rather, perhaps this will affect entrance requirements for Shiva, Leviathan, Ramuh, new coil turns, etc.

That's what they stated and it makes perfect sense.

i70 is Darklight/Darksteel/whathaveyou and a Garuda weapon/crafted equivalent. That's easily obtainable even if it takes time.

The reason for the i55 requirement for Crystal Tower is smart. It's a 'casual' raid and allows people to experience raids in a more laid back environment on their own time and in not as demanding an environment as Coil can be a times. Needing only pieces from WP/AK/PS/CM/HM, and possibly some Darklight as you get tomes, allows players to slowly gear up for their Relic/HM Primals but still do *some* large group endgame content so they're not spending forever grinding just to get there.

Secondly, HM Titan is still needed to get through a relic's story and completion and it's required to even enter Coil. By having Crystal Tower drop i80 gear, Mythology giving i90 gear, but Titan requiring i70 gear gives people multiple avenues to meet a really small requirement. When you're getting i80 gear from a place that you can, apparently, run as long as you like and fill missing slots with i70 crafted and/or tokened gear it's easier to reach that requirement to get into Titan.

Remember, CT's gear level is to make entrance into Coil easier for newer groups that haven't gotten in yet. Titan isn't exactly the most difficult content in the game, but it's a major step up from HM Garuda in terms of execution and numbers needed. CT having i80 just makes meeting the entrance 'requirement' for him that much easier.

Thanks Szabo! I put that right in a thread title for everyone to find. Interesting that the info came through the Q and A thread. I don't think Yoshi himself wanted to be held responsible for quoting the date.

I'm sure we all want the Patch to be complete and bug-free. Although, I would be prepared for the typical day-after hotfix.

This is gonna be great.

:D

Agreed. If the only problem I have with hotfixes is having to close that alert window after logging in, all will be fine.

Based on the fact you cant make your own alliances, if you can manage to get though the thing with three random groups of 8, you deserve a level 80 item and aSmiley: cookie

Ya this makes CT entirely worthless unfortunately. Oh well, can continue in Coil.

And yes I was also curious about the actual measurable impact of Coil gear going from 90 to 95.

From a community rep:

Greetings,

According to the stream, Yoshida did in fact mention this upgrade to item level 95 was to be for Allagan weapons only due to the difficulty of turn 5, whereas the text on the Japanese and English Q&A post indicated equipment in general. Just to be certain, we will double check with Yoshi-P and let you know for sure.

This makes a little more sense and answers my own earlier question as to impact if it turns out to be the case.

For those who rated me down here is a link:
http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/103204-Relics-may-be-required-for-Crystal-Tower

Yoshi p said they were thinking of making a relic required for crystal tower which is why needing ilvl 55 gear seems like a mistake to me. Titan certainly can be done with AK gear so the ilvl requirment looks too high. And yes i went back and read what they said in the questions, but why would they consider needing a relic weapon for CT and then make it casual? And yes i know when they said that was awile ago, but still.

Highlights for me: Pharos Sirius (Hopefully Siren!). Faster response times for high end content. Separate loot for each 8 man group inside CT. Confirmation that CT gear can be used in the "Vanity" thing in patch 2.2.

Overall, im really excited about this patch, especially the WAR buff info from the other day.
