Now that FFXIV’s Stormblood expansion has been with us for a few months, I wanted to gather up everything I know about crafting in the new world and share it in a single coherent place.
I had to piece together the following steps, so I wanted to share them with everybody in a simple, straightforward fashion.
The goal is to get a novice crafter (Disciples of Hand/Land levels 50-60) set up for success at endgame (3 or 4 star recipe) crafting.
With news that the Warcraft movie will be released on December 18, 2015, we thought you should know how familiar it’ll feel to players of the MMO.
Note: This was written from the perspective of a World of Warcraft raider, but some of it will apply to other MMOs as well.
Currently, Warcraft has three roles for players to fill: tank, damage dealer, or healer. The first two are distinct from the third, and will be unless major game mechanics are changed. I’m going to set aside encounter-specific mechanics, because I believe they tend to be a wash - for every boss where the tank has something special to do, there’s another where the DPS or healers have to be on their toes.
