I only used 30% for now, and was clearly enough for all content i did.
Also, because of WoW/FFXIV being a lot a DPS rush for hard content, people just… try to rush DPS on boss, and so, while not able to read patern well (because they discover simply…) they take more damage. (So use more pots).
Guys, most bosses in t1, t2 and early t3 have a large enrage timer. What people aim is to kill boss, and your teammate will prefer have 2 more minutes in the fight, and kill the boss, than trying to get it ASAP but seeing you die, being suddenly useless in abyss, or consuming all joker in guardians.
Play safe learn patern, find when you get time to do a little, or even more DPS. Find how to get this time.
YES i dislike when a newbie do small damages and so the guardian die in 7 minute and not in 5… but i hate even more when he consumes the 3 rez in 4 minute because he tries to DPS non stop and get hit by everything…
We are here to learn, so take time to learn pattern, play safe when you discover boss.
Ill finish with a clear example. I did nearly no nacrasena in t1/T2 (rushed brainlessly thru t1/T2 with island help… so the 12 first guardian, my main did fight them 1 or 2 time each… ) and so, i “really” discovered nacra with “armored nacrasena” in t3
while first day, even with playing safe (as melee so… frustration to being around 33-50% of time away from hitting him) i had even to repot in begining (so used more than 5 pots. And now, i use rarely more than 3 pots per kill (yesterday kills = 2 pot in second one, 0 in first). and in melee range as close as possible of 100% fight time.
I played safe, learned patern. I am no “god gamer” just i learned fight, i trained. and now it is a trivial one for me.
Use pot, and DONT FEAR to not DPS nonstop.
because the %pot where not in the same shortcut than the “normal” one, we had a hint about it also.
but “intuitiv” or “logic” is not anything objectiv with all people having the same view.
And the game don’t insist enough about the “battle item” system. (this specific short cut bar for pots, bomb, nade and utility) it is totally right.
