80/AYEEEEE!

Anyway, just dinged 70, try out doing rotations that involve Nastrond and just holy cow this is too much for me! I mouse and keyboard this game and I have so many attacks to press my fingers are flying all over the place (Is it easier on controller?)! And syncing these dps steroids? Whoever thought up Dragon's eye needs to be shot out of a canon. I'm going back to my caster jobs.

yeah it's clunky as f*** and not really well designed, but it's got a simple rotation.

forget about dragon sight. it sucks.

I mouse and keyboard this game and I have so many attacks to press my fingers are flying all over the place (Is it easier on controller?)!

i have a basic keyboard and mouse (only two buttons + wheel) and what i do: i assign all my jumps to my mouse. basic jump is m4, spineshatter is ctrl+m4, dragonfire is shift+m4, blood of the dragon is m5, and mirage dive is shift+m5. i might swap that one around, now that i think about it.

for my melee classes i always have rear positional attacks tied to shift+ keys; the chaos thrust combo and wheeling thrust (shift+1-4) are that way, along with heavy thrust (shift+w). 1-4 for true thrust combo and fang and claw. geirskogul and nastrond get the esteemed privilege of my '5' key.

On controller it feels very natural, still less button presses than a basic character action game, the only issue is Dragon Sight as it has already been stated, is cumbersome to use, even with macros.

weird, i find dragoon simple because it's a very static rotation
different strokes for different folks i guess

Once you get the rotation down and hit your ideal gcd it all comes together.
Got a minute? You might learn something.

It's really not that hard..........few GCDs and intertwining them between BOTD and jumps and lol at anyone who says dragon sight isn't worth it anymore - It's fine, other than when you get a moronic dps or tank

If it makes you feel any better my blm is 66 and still can't beat the SB lvl 60 quest... Too many spells and not an adequate heal.
"SPOILERS"... If ppl call me a douche bag I reply "Well at least I'm scoring!"

it all comes together.


It never comes together. Dragon sight, blood for blood, the gcds, and the progressive desynchronization that every completed rotation causes your OGCDs will probably never be under full control.
No, it'll never come together with practice.
It just stops coming apart.
