I am a fairly active dungeon crawler. I run them 10 to 15 times a week, working on a Zodiac weapon and several weapons in the pre-Zodiac progression. I consistently utilize raids for my weekly and still beyond that. I run to an S-rank hunt whenever it’s called out. I even jump into BGs from time to time, but I simply do not have enough time to sit in queues every time I want a significant amount of Poetics. Furthermore, FF is a franchise which prides itself on freedom and diversity. The devs will speak often and passionately that they strive so that players will have many avenues to reach their goals.
Now bear in mind please that currency gear has never been intended to be the dungeon/raid-grind type of gear. I think SE is perhaps forgetting that. Okay, so we don’t have to run FCOB to obtain Poetics gear, but we will have to queue in dungeons, preferably as a tank or healer, naturally, in order to get this gear in any effective time frame. Again, it’s currency gear, not dungeon gear. There needs to reasonable avenues for people to cap throughout the week if they cannot afford to sit in queues while bearing in mind that FF champions diversity, and you shouldn’t have to queue as a tank/healer to accomplish this. Simple solution, add 4-5 poetics to A ranks. As 2.0 comes to a close this isn’t an unreasonable request. It’s not Dreadwyrm gear, it’s currency gear with a soft weekly cap. There are enough facets of this game that shove dungeons down our throats.
