Only jjust started playing this, I was very skeptical about an a MMO on a console, and since WoW ive never found one which grasped me.
But this is actually really good, its far deeper than id imagined in terms of classes and I cant beleive how well it handles with a controller.
Only thing that worries me is targetting in raids in the future..

How are you playing? With control pad on ps4? Tank, DPS or healer? Targeting is much easier with a keyboard so you can assign hot keys to nearest, strongest mobs etc. Also targeting party me members is much simpler.

Yeah Im on PS4, levelling a DPS right now but intend on Tanking later on. I may have to switch to M&K when it comes to endgame.

I heal on my PS4 and it works VERY well imo.

That's what the L1 button is for bro.. Switch targets at ease.. They did a phenomenal job with the controller integration with FF XIV, so in depth.

Whether it's PVP raids, or PVE raids.. That L1 button is magical and can be a life saver. :)

R2>L1 goes left, L2>R1 goes right. Also, I keep a macro that targets "mark1" and I keep the Target to Attack 1 on my cross bar.

For raiding, don't worry. It's usually only 1 boss anyways. And max is like 2 adds. Very easy to handle with the controller.

Also, if you hold L1 and go up/down on the D-Pad you'll cycle through the enemy list (on the left-hand side of the screen). However, know that this only does SUB-TARGETTING and you'll have to hit X to confirm the target. I use this method only if there's about 4+ mobs on the screen.

Ninja Ninja Ninja!!!! Now All i need is samurai and I'm all set.

Ninjas must be a dps class, right? I only played as paladin so far, so this would be a really nice change of pace!

izumo_lee1414d ago

Yup Ninjas will be a DPS class which for me is gonna suck. Being a bard the que times for duties are bad enough already, now with Ninjas it is gonna suck even more.

Which is why i'm leveling up a scholar now before the patch hits.
