Lore found in The Great Gubal Library (Hard)

Like the original run of the dungeon, the hard version has new lore! Posting it here for discussion!
The Boy and the Dragon Gay: Once upon a time, there lived a free-spirited boy who loved to play in the forest with his pet chocobo. But the forests were fraught with peril, and one day, a band of brigands ambushed the boy, spiriting him away to the harsh mountains of the north. Yet there be dragons there, and as they rode up the mountain path, one of those majestic beasts came swooping down from the heavens. The boy’s chocobo reared in fright, sending the boy tumbling down the mountainside to his nigh-certain demise. And yet the gods saw fit to spare his life, if only meagerly so...

ffxivtips | Nomura: Voice recording for Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Dissidia in progress

Tetsuya Nomura is a busy guy. His current projects include Kingdom Hearts III, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Dissidia Final Fantasy‘s arcade version just to name a few. It’s within the context of the latter we’re given a brief update on his upcoming games.

During a special livestream detailing the latest update for Dissidia Final Fantasy, Nomura said that voice recording is now in the works for “Kingdom,” “Seven,” and “Dissidia.” While vague we can easily piece these hints into each of the games he’s confirmed to be working on. “Seven” seems the most obvious, while “Kingdom” could fit into KHIII or KH2.8 depending on how far the latter is along. As for “Dissidia,” it seems likely Nomura is referring to the arcade game’s ongoing updates rather than the mobile title Op...

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage was on display at EGX 2016 this past weekend, giving fans a taste of what’s to come in the eventual Kingdom Hearts III.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 is a playable story that links to Kingdom Hearts III, taking place after the story-line of Birth by Sleep and told from the perspective of Aqua. It’s being bundled as part of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which releases January 2017.

This will be a HUGE imbalance

there’s no reason to give WARs (that are already very strong, expecially in solo queue) another toolset that actually only the poor DRK have (a gap closer).

Even because

Berserk > Full Swing > Fell cleve > Stun > Fell Cleave > Mythril Tempest (Stun) > Shoulder Tackle (Stun) > Mercy Stroke

So no please, a gap closer is something extremely useful in pvp, and in order to help Tanks to reach other jobs the SE moved Weapon throw from melee (that already have one or Gap closer by themself) to give it to tanks.
It’s like asking Rampart crossclass because melee has no effective defense buff compared to tanks,
any role has his pro and cons.

And now an example that I experimented on myself, few time ago I used to play SCH and I got a very strong WAR against me,
I was aware of the WAR burst so I puri...

Personally i wouldnt mind if berserk’s damage was reduced but there is an attack speed buff as well (similar to blood weapon i suppose)

Other classes i found a bit disjointed – Bard and wanderers minuet. You sing so now your skills take longer but are magically more powerful. I suggested a little while ago that the cast bar remains but in a 3 stage system called pinpoint, where the experienced archer is taking the time to aim only for the enemies’ weak spots, taking more time to aim to increase accuracy and thus damage.
This would be in a cast bar wiuth 3 tiers. charge for .5 seconds, 10% damage increase. 1 second, 15%. 1.5 seconds, 20%. If you have to move, you dont lose all progress, you just didnt aim quite as well as you hoped, but you still get a little damage increase. saves dancing minuet on and off since you dont have to charge if you want to move and shoot.
Machinist is fine, that makes sense to me and it’d be nic...

DRK is in a much, much ‘darker’ place than PLD or WAR

In fact, there is only one DRK on all of Primal that I am happy to have on my team. The funny thing is it is his alt account, and on his main he is much more powerful on DRG/WAR/PLD than he is on DRK (not because of player skill, but because of class balance).

Utility:
Carnal Chill is a great PvP ability, DRK also has access to a stun, blinds, and slows, but it doesn’t come close to negating burst or creating opening as much as PLDs tools (Shield Bash, Clem, Cover, Pacific, Silence, Divine Veil, Flash). Arguably, even the abilities WARs have make more of an impact (Holmgang, Tempest, Thrill of War, Path, Slashing Debuff). Minus the DRK mentioned above, I don’t even see DRKs use Carnal Chill properly.
PLD >>>>> WAR >= DRK

Damage:
DRK is leaps and bounds behind WAR on damage...
