Q: Does a Mining World designation improve strategic resource synthesis?

Mark RogersThe Mining World designation improves mining and "Strategic Resource Gatherers". I assume this means that the miners of a strategic resource get a bonus amount of that resource. What I'm not clear on is: Does a mining world designation improve artificial conversion of minerals into strategic re...

@ave Good ol' FF14
I always have the desire to revisit that.
I likely never will! MMO take up too much time, but oh boy, do I love healing.

@Wipqozn healing is fun
I'm a healer main, or ig I was before I took a break lol eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/38493902

The English Dub of Food Wars is really bad. My word.
I've been warx dub while eating so I don't need to look at the screen, but wow
 
3:19 PM
god dang it dude why do I always forget about the pre monthly release code freeze
love 2 rollback something 7 minutes later
 
3:40 PM

y
 
3:54 PM
??
the example is not right either
god damn it
wait
god damn it ok
I see
 
4:11 PM
Alright I understand the problem now but I am too lazy to set up the debugger on this computer so I'll do it later
I probably should just set up the debugger I have the .vscode files already
 
4:22 PM
@Wipqozn I love how FF14 works, but god damn is the early world seemingly empty. I love how Play Frame puts it: FF14 is like an excellent series, but the first season you have to get through is garbage.
(Hes playing through the story to show it, trimming the fat of all sidequests and job quests)
But yeah I got to the 2nd major city in FF14 and stopped; was I close to where it opens up?
 
@Fredy31 The game really starts to open up at around level 30
Note that the first 3 cities you visit are just the starting cities for the different classes. At level 14 or so everyone starts to do the same content when you learn about the Scions of the Seventh Dawn
 
4:41 PM
But yeah when PlayFrame's Dan described it as 'a good show with a very bad first season' I felt that. I always wanted to make my SO watch Dr. Who but the first season of the reboot is... very bad. And you need to watch it or you will be lost for Tennant's first at least 2 seasons
@Nzall Think I stopped like... 25? Because before that quests were just 'go there, kill shit, collect thing, come back'
IDK if its just that i'm sick of MMOs or its just that FF14 startup is rough
 
@Fredy31 To be clear: the main draw of FFXIV is the story, not the quest design
At around level 30 is when the story starts picking up and you really learn about the true villains of the series
 
Yeah that is what made me think it was more of a 'i'm not an MMO person anymore'
because except the 'cutscene quests' I found myself just being 'IDGAF'
Might try again during christmas break. I'll be off work but my SO will work, so full days to myself
 
5:24 PM
@Fredy31 Around level 30, the game truly starts to be an RPG with MMO mechanics rather than an MMO with RPG mechanics
 
6:23 PM
@Memor-X Then I fear that thou was mistaken. That was clearly the original GB Color edition :P
 
6:55 PM
@Nzall Wonder if it would still be good even if I'm playing the free version... I asked before on Arqade but I wonder if its gonna break the enjoyment of the game
Also I guess that the class I picked (mage) I don't really like. I guess at level 30 is where the multiclass thing starts too
 
@Fredy31 the free version is literally the base game plus the first expansion, no restrictions at all
@Fredy31 not exactly multiclass, but at level 30 you unlock the upgrade to your class, what's called a Job.
With it comes stuff like better spells, more complicated resources and the likes
 
7:48 PM
Can't wait to play it when I get home today.
In other news though, I've been listening to the Arcane OST nonstop this week.
 
8:28 PM
@Nzall there is supposed to be restrictions like no parties or free companies
 
@Fredy31 you can join parties, but you can't create them
and yeah, no Free Company
that's probably the biggest restriction
 
8:46 PM
No marketboard access or trading either but that's to be expected.
But even still, it's pretty critically-acclaimed.
 
@Yuuki So is your face!
BUUUURRRNNN. Wait shit.
 
9:02 PM
Ugh, I've spent this entire week obsessed about Arcane.
pls help
