Anyone want to help me finish the Ultimate Weapon team mission this evening? I'll probably be on around 6-630 tonight PST.

I'm raiding with some friends tonight at that time, otherwise I would You could see if any of the folks in Discord will be around then.

I might also be on Sunday - tomorrow I’m doing emerald city comic-con so going to be busy.

I could probably do Sunday evening around 6 or 7 Pacific.

Sorry guys got back late from ComicCon on Sunday. Might try to do it on Tuesday early evening.

I went ahead and knocked it out during lunch so I’ve finished the main ARR story. I won’t clear that title off the “pile” till I reach Heavensward but I’m officially hooked on the story.

If you're hooked on the story from ARR, I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the expansions.

Like a dummy I decided to go back and level summoner since I’m a bit burned out on Black mage. When I’m 50 again and can continue the MSQ I will let you know.

That's being smart, not being a dummy. Summoner is the best job.

I speak from the experience of exclusively playing Summoner.

The benchmark’s out. I play on a Mac, so I had to run it under CrossOver. There are some bugs, but it mostly worked. I imported my character into the creator. I needed to make a few tweaks (eye color and eyeliner on female viera), but it could be worse.

Edit: I imported an elezen preset I was working on recently. She looks quite pretty. eyes stack of fantasias

I'm on PS5, so I remade myself for the benchmark, and, yep, while I couldn't really point to anything specific to say "This has been improved," (beyond overall expressiveness) my Duskwight glamazon looks great.

I’m going to amend my comments on my viera. The more I look at the eyes, the more wrong they are. Veena are supposed to have bigger pupils than Rava. The nose is also too dark.

I do like that they added combat sounds to the character creator. It was annoying having to make a test character to try out different combat voices. There is apparently a daily limit on how many you can make ….

An Update on the Dawntrail Official Benchmark

I’m glad they said something. This kind of responsiveness is one of my favorite things about the FFXIV devs.

Still probably going mooncat for Dawntrail though.
