Thread: Dungeon Series

  1. #1

    Default Dungeon Series

    I'm making a series of dungeon videos. The goal is to essentially serve as a highlight for what FFXIV has to offer in dungeons and also potentially provide some insight into how I've dealt with certain dungeons/encounters. The first few in the series will absolutely feel like I'm just beating up on the game, but I'm including them to give a full picture of what this game has to offer rather than just waiting for those dungeons that take 3 hours for me to beat and scaring anyone away from the game.

    I'm really not good at making videos, that should be obvious by now. I am working to make them better, definitely willing to take any feedback or criticism you may have. Along with any ideas or things you want to see in other videos. I talked about my comp a little in this first video.

    I will have an aggressive upload schedule this week. Half of the ARR dungeons are a cakewalk, so with production time I can turn around a video fairly quickly. For the longer dungeons, it's going to take me more time to clear the dungeon and it's going to take me more time to clean up the video. Combine that with the fact that I have a ton of free time this week and you should expect to see new videos for this series at an alarming rate this week, but they will slow down in the future.

    I will update this thread when I add a video, the first dungeon, Satasha, is currently included. I'm hoping to get a second dungeon run up either today or tomorrow.

    Is boxing allowed in the game? All I can find is this:

    ■Behaviour that disrupts the game balance
    Square Enix strictly prohibits the use of third-party programs or tools – including programs and tools that permit automated or “absentee” play – in Final Fantasy XIV. Accordingly, the following activities are prohibited:


    - Modifying, analysing, integrating, and/or reverse engineering game software or data.
    - Creating, distributing, using, or promoting utilities that interact with the game.
    - Exploiting Square Enix programming bugs or glitches.
    - Automating gameplay processes.

    As multiboxers I believe we do operate in that grey area of acceptability. You could interpret this statement any way that fits your bias. Personally I see this being aimed at bots. People use 3rd party tools/plugins for damage meters. They do not condone, and actually will ban people for talking about it in game. As for multiboxing and software input broadcasting: their definitions and applications could change at any point. If you're gun shy because of Blizzard, that's reasonable, but at the end of the day I'm comfortable with multiboxing this game for a few reasons.

    1.) Square Enix has a concept of "Service Account" where you can have multiple service accounts under the same Square-Enix Account.
    2.) Multiple people have multiboxed this in the past and present. While not popular to do so for a number of reasons, doesn't make it something that's even on their radar.
    3.) There is no concept of a token or way to trade in the in game currency for money. As a result, I can't identify any reason why they would crack down on the behavior of multiboxing.

    At the end of the day I'm going to enjoy this game (while I can?), do my best to play to the spirit of the game, and be a good actor in their ecosystem. If I get banned or they change their rules, then I'll move on.

    I have put in a ticket to ask, so will return with any answer I get. I also did the same for Rift.

    I'd love to box ff14 myself as I already have a 4 seat mount waiting My main has done all of the ff14 content while I was on a break from WoW.

    I think it's time the list of games that actually fully allow multiboxing was updated.

    I think they will say multiboxing is fine, software is not.

    I forgot this post existed. Have to agree with you. No one is ever going to say you can do it, and as long as their definition includes "automatic" it's really unclear as to whether the input broadcasting is okay. They're not going to bother going up the chain of command high enough to give a concrete answer unless there's a reason for them to do so. An individual wanting to play their game is not really a strong enough reason. It's very likely we're going to get a response that is identical to what they've already said.

    Blizzard would have told you the same thing 6 months ago. I can appreciate that you want something that endorses multiboxing, but I just don't think that's the sort of response you're going to get.
