  1. Hey, I have a toon who's a white mage on Balmung. Small world. I'm fine with the idea, but if you're on Balmung and wanna rp with me, we might have some problems having the two interact, as Kojaja is explicitly linked to a character in the WHM questline who's very important to the lineage of non-Padjali WHMs. Obviously this can be worked out, though.
  2. Slight rant here and maybe a little necro, but the posting rate on this site has kind of slowed immensely in recent years so I will try and see if I can get away with it: One of the Tales for Stormblood involving Fordola after her capture and trial explicitly shows that other people with the echo, including full-on SUMMONERS with actual job stones exist and are used to fight Primals when the WoL is busy, especially during the events of Shadowbringers where we were off-world. In fact, this is what Fordola was doing before she showed up in Patch 5.5, as the tale has her and Arenvald alongsi
  3. I'd say be ready to be the one to break the ice. A lot of roleplayers default to walk-up interactions without actually walking up to anyone else, resulting in people standing around doing nothing. The best way to get rp a lot of the time is to walk up and start interacting with somebody. Second, check out organized rp events on your server. They're some of the best ways to get into rp. Third, keep a healthy distance between In-character interactions and out-of-character ones. If you dislike someone, don't rp with them.
  4. By god somebody actually posted in this thread of mine in April of 2021? Do you have any idea how old this thread is? Don't bring old me back from the dead; he's not very funny and he smells like catboy.
  5. I have reservations about why its like this and they're not very positive, especially based on my experiences with the community. I may be biased, though, so I'm not gonna share. Regardless, I can tell you that as I have traveled around I have found multiple indications of organized rp happening sporadically across Balmung. I stumbled upon a massive FC rp event just trying to complete stormblood quests, which was nice. I will tell you this much, don't go to the quicksand for Ul'dah rp. The ERPers have completely taken that over, and /shout in the steps of nald is completely unbearable. In
  6. AND ANOTHER THING, even the people with blatant ERP tags in their search info shouldn't be judged at their cover, because a lot of people who do ERP are also willing to do normal RP, too. I'm not saying all of them are like that, but a lot of them are and often supplement normal story-driven rp with ERP on the side for things like romance plots or darker subject matters. These people will gladly respect your desire to do normal rp with them and leave the erotica out of it (i'm an example of this). Again, ask people, send them a /tell, especially if their search info says to do so. Glad t
  7. On the subject of the ERP stigma, I echo the sentiment of what other people have said: it's a baseless rumor spread by people who hang out on Balmung almost exclusively in the dead center of the Quicksand in Ul'dah, which is where 90% of the ERPers happen to hang out and do their thing. Every server with an RP population has a center like that, and if that's where you do most of your searching damn straight you're gonna get that kind of impression. The truth of the matter is, the people who spread that sentiment, if they're even being completely serious, have not actually looked for non-E
  8. This is my favorite method for making lots of gil, and hey, you get an achievement for your troubles. This method requires leveling gatherers miner and botanist and 1 or 2 crafters to 80, but it's also one of the most effective means of non-MB gil production as of this patch cycle. You probably should level miner and botanist to 80 in the first place because crafting mats are always in demand, but this lets you sink the resources you farm into instant gil without having to play the marketboard. It's predicated entirely on having the levequest allowances to do it, but those are easy to com
  9. I did it guys. Bought the whole damn collection.
  10. I left the game, or rather, was forced to leave the game, around the time stormblood was set to release.
  11. I'm gonna be creating a new account and getting back into the game soon. I'm not at the point now where I'm willing to share what toons I'm making or even what server I'll be on primarily, but I have had the opportunity to make a fresh start of this for a while now and I'd like to give it a shot. So on that note, I'd like to know, what are the biggest changes to FFXIV that have taken place that I'm not gonna be used to? I hear of this World Visit feature, which sounds amazing and per-tenant to my interests, but I'm not quite in the know on anything else. I don't expect a giant list o
  12. How ya doing? I wanna talk about something kind of personal here, and I hope it opens up some good discussion. Look, let's not dance around the issue, I was a bad roleplayer when I got into this game. I did so many things wrong and I have a lot of regrets as a result. The last 6 years have given me time to refine my skills by participating in DND with other people. I've learned a lot, and I wouldn't have had the chance if not for the latest edition of the franchise and my discovery of the now deceased Stormbrew Games on my street. As of this moment I have a group of about 4 people, mostly
  13. It's not bad writing on the part of Aymeric hastily tossing them off a cliff, it's bad writing on the part of having the Ascians just be able to so easily retrieve something that shouldn't have been retrievable. The eyes were frozen solid at the bottom of a supposedly bottomless pit; how the FUCK did the Ascians retrieve them?
