Grade 6 & Up Fishing

[dev1098] All schools of fish rated grade 6 or higher have been lowered to grade 1.

-I don't understand this. Now I'm FSH 42 and I'm going to have to go to 50 on 190 SP (at my current rank)?? Or am I missing something? (ó¿ò)

You mean like the Miners and Botanist had to do from the get-go? While I can understand your frustration, it was an unfair exploit the dev team fixed. Besides, there's very little a rank 42 fisherman can't fish up that a rank 50 can. So there is very little reason to rush it. Lastly, now you'll be fishing for items that actually are worth something and help out your server community if you choose to sell them.

It's not really about what you can or can't do between ranks, but about the fulfillment of going as far as you can go on a job. The same situation exists from 48 to 50 on a DoW&M, but everyone still rushes to get to 50 to be able to say they did it. My point wasn't about making money, just that it would take much longer to complete the journey to max rank.

P.S. They should fix this for botanist and miner also!

my problem is with the delay timers on certain attack. an example that would be for my lnc, my attack for full thrust is a minute delay and same with peirce, and other jobs have the same issue. i understand the old development team said this would be a more of a solo thing, but as of Yoshi-P i dont know his moto. All in all if i want to play a somewhat turn bade and party oriented game with the FF brand i might as well go back to FF11. that was the reason i left that game in the first place.

After not being able to find anyone to rank with, and trying to get a party together for ... just about everything but raids and failing continuously, finding that ranking crafting, and not being able to fix **** anymore without spending a **** ton of gil, I have cancelled my account and will not be returning to the new FULLY busted game that is final fantasy 14. Have fun playing this crap heap^^

i havent been on for 8month i decide check it out and Failed.... the only thing they need to work on is job and status (point allottment) system. You cant really do war and mage b/c it take u a week to reset your status to war to mage, even so if u do decide to u have to wait another 1 week to change back to war status.

Thank you SE for totally ******** over all gathering locations 40+ by placing 10 40+ aggro mobs at each node. This was the stupidest thing you have done in the game so far, why would you try to improve the game so people stay and then make it impossible to play............

This isn't the only thing that they screwed up. I think the dark matter sounded nice on paper, but in reality, it was a horrible mistake. The rate that gear breaks down now is a considerable gil sink, and you have to go buy it at a vendor for a kind of ridiculous fee or you have to harvest it witch also seems stupid considering its rarity.
IDK but this patch seemed to ***** things up a bit more then made it better.

I am really not too impressed with the "golden patch" of 1.18 in general aside from the nightmare of 40+ gathering, the SP nerf of melee jobs is even worse..... at 23 if I fight a level 35 mob I receive 186 SP..... wth at that rate sometime in 2020 I may get that job to 50. Behest every hour now... less SP, even the great idea of having imperials attack camps is weighed down by no SP gain.

So much could have been done from this update, so much was expected and aside from the raids (if you dont want to level another job and are lucky enough to have a level 50 already) and content adds this update rates about a 3 out of 10 in my books.

I am not sure this was the impression SE wanted to give to new players and people who used this update to come back to the game.
