The Patreon Thing #AggroChat 50 the Trine GameClub show, also some of my thoughts on Patreon

AggroChat 50 – Game Club 2 – Trine 2 Last night we recorded our 50th episode of AggroChat and I have to say that is a bit staggering now that I think about it.  We’ve almost recorded a full year of AggroChat, and we only “missed” a single week.  In fact…

Disappointment in Draenor #Aggronaut talks about his frustrations with #Warlords several months in

Death of Dungeons So yesterday I originally set out to write a post about World of Warcraft, and I am guessing this morning I will actually make good on that threat.  Last night we raided Blackrock Foundry, and overall it was an enjoyable time.  I managed…

Bel Propaganda #Aggronaut talks building infrastructure for #GreyskyArmada in #FFXIV and Heroic Hans and Franz in #WoW

Night Means Business #Aggronaut manages to cap poetics at last minute in #FFXIV and talks about #FFXV Episode Duscae

Weekly Caps Another weekend down, and I have somehow managed to cap poetics at the 11th hour.  I did not get near as much playtime as I would have liked over the weekend, and I was pretty horrible about managing to do an expert roulette every single day. …

The Guide Program #Aggronaut reminisces about the #Everquest guide program for #StorytimeSaturdays

There are many stories that at the time were frustrating but become more humorous through the lens of nostalgia.  I think we as gamers all have thousands of such tales in us, and with this new feature my goal is to try and devote some time to committing…

Reluctant Healer #Aggronaut talks tyranny of a blank page, reluctantly #FFXIV healing, and tanking for guildies

Tyranny of Blank Page I’ve been going through a bit of a spell the last several mornings where I get upstairs, sit down, and stare into the abyss that is a blank screen not really knowing quite what to fill it with.  So this is a post to tell all of the…

Crowd Sourced Opinion #Aggronaut makes unusual post reflecting on social media and if it leads to cruelty

Cruel Nation This mornings post is going to be a little bit out of the ordinary, in part because I don’t really have a story to tell, and I also woke up thinking about this one.  This post is a call back to my earlier post this week called “hip to be…

Hip to be Mean #Aggronaut talks about games industry and enthusiast press and trying not to be mean

We Like To Help #Aggronaut talks #GreySkyArmada free company advice to new players and #FFXIV turn 9 progress

Reluctant Roulette I thought I would take a few moments this morning to address a few things we are noticing among new recruits to our Free Company.  I believe for the most part the majority of this group reads my blog at least sometimes, so here is…

In leveling my Dragoon I looked at the crazy rotation that included fracture, but did more research and found out a fracture-less rotation actually does more DPS. So the rotation looks like: HT-> CT Rotation -> Phleb -> Normal thrust rotation -> HT -> normal thrust rotation -> CT rotation -> Phleb -> HT -> Normal thrust rotation, etc. It's MUCH easier to line up and remember when you're not accounting for the fracture timing. Since the jumps are off the GCD, you just do them when and where you see fit.

EDIT: Found the rotation:
H-IDC-P-TTT
H-TTT-P-IDC
H-TTT-P-TTT

So I guess it IS 24 separate steps in reality, especially if you include hitting BfB after ID and LS before FT, but this block shows you it's really just 4 sets of things that interchange position :D

Disconnected Dragoon very out of it #Aggronaut misses #WoW raid, sleep walks through #FFXIV and talks #Landmark wipe

Missing a Raid Yesterday was one of those days when I felt like I was moving through molasses the entire day.  In part it was the whole staying up late and babysitting servers bit, but also we had so much stuff going on during the day connected to the two…
