So you see I turned on the news today and there was an excellent piece on how Morbid Machinist Partyfinder Blockage has become a massive problem in North America and as a Canadian that includes me too. Yeah the internet service here in my igloo is awesome, and I got my game time card in from the snowdogs. Need to order a few weeks in advance for our delivery service.
I need to commend this party finder listing though cause they actually left archer, an archer is preferable to a machinist in 6.2.
But time to be serious. Let’s talk very directly about the meta, in the most super direct way one possibly can. I’ve made a ton of machinist videos and ranged DPS yadda yadda. No more I promise, I’ve already been served documents saying if I do another video on those subjects I will be guillotined by Eddie Hall and sat on by the mountain. Eh worse ways to go like being dabbed on by a main character using the machinist’s arm. Now that’s an insult this patch.
I’d say enough jokes but that was keeping it real. But today I have come to state boldly what is the end result of the meta. Are you likely to be impacted by it and how much.
As they say the end justify the means even if your job is well below the mean. That’s a stats joke.
So the meanypants of the world don’t like machinist and so like your aunt Florence with her embroidered couch and doilies littered across the room it’s time to address the elephant in the room.
First off, numbers, bars, charts. This savage tier more than any other there is a clear difference between the haves and have nots you know they usually say life imitates art. But does this impact you at all?
Likely answer for most of my viewers is yeah it does, if you engage in extreme farming which finally we have an extreme trial worth that title, then this absolutely impacts you. If you do savage in party finder, and if you do you already know it does, well it impacts you. If you’re ringing up friends on discord saying:
Hey Dan I saw your discord status is online are you raiding in final fantasy.
Then you see their status turn to offline as they quickly shut off their party finder faster than when your parents enter your room and you scramble to hide that anime girl stuff I have injected into my twitter feed constantly. Yeah you know, that stuff.
But if that scenario seems familiar to you or you have lived it, don’t trust Dan he’s not actually offline that no good Dan. And well… chances are you play a machinist and Dan does not want you in his PF.
Real goods are if you want to farm the extreme trials and you want to see a lot of enrages, and yeah you somehow can totally see enrages, then be an idiot like me and enjoy playing healer. Especially astrologian, especially astrologian.
Few things feel better than being forced to hardcast revive on people as they get up and you throw your cards on the tank cause they’re the only one left without weakness.
I can already hear the booing on discord as I do this recording. What you wanted a machinist joke?
Fine you’ll have one. The joke is that the extreme trial farm group had the machinist slot locked off just like that group that preferred an archer. I couldn’t join on machinist.
Oh yeah now they’re going now they’re going.
While that may seem tongue and cheek and like a joke in delivery, unfortunately that is the reality. Playing lower DPS jobs begets lower clear rates because what you’re going into PF and expecting competency?
Damn. That’s like going onto Tinder and finding a good date. Plenty of fish more like plenty of crap. I met my ex on plenty of fish, yeah, that was sure a winner.
What about dungeons though, okay guys I get it we just took the bar and lowered it a lot. But somebody has to think of the sprouts and dungeon meta does matter for experts because you want to just get in and get out as fast as you can because one more second of mobs hitting you with soggy foam noodles will remind you of that time your pasta went weird soft and soggy I just did that with kraft dinner the other day. Gross.
