If you die

#1Slaight144Posted 8/20/2013 5:27:48 PM
There is a general MMO rule of thumb that "if the tank dies it's the healers fault, if the healer dies it's the tanks fault, if anyone else dies its their own damn fault."

How did FFXIV hold up to this in the beta? Was there a lot of "get out of the fire!" moments for the dps party members or do they generally have the dungeon/raid boss hand out loads of party wide, unavoidable damage that the healers just had to heal through?

if anyone else dies it is the healer or tanks fault* dps never takes responsibility for deaths

It held true. If I ever saw a DPS die, they were being stupid and deserved it.

It's the Carbuncle's fault. Pulled too much aggro and refused to tank for me.

Fault always goes to tank/healer.. Another reason why people don't love to play them, nobody likes being blamed for stuff they didn't do :p

Sadly, I like the abuse :(

Since healing is so easy in this game... if anyone dies, its the healers fault (I am a healer)
