WHM Job Gauge Improvement Idea (and MNK)

Do you know the issue that you have 3 lilies but all abilities that could use them up are on cooldown? You just had to heal that much!

No? I don’t know this issue either, but in case this ever happens, I have THE idea to improve the WHM Job Gauge. It’s a revolutionary idea, that will make the job with their lily system a lot more efficient.

Here is a sample picture of how it could look like:

Most jobs can show off and gather 69 <whatever> of their job gauge. On the other hand, several jobs are unable to do so. Is this fair?

No! This is completely unfair! WHMs should be able to gather 69 Lilies and take screenshots to brag on twitter of it as well!

Of course I understand, there are other jobs who cannot do this either, like SCH, BRD, MCH, MNK… Do not worry, I also have a brilliant and beautiful idea for Monk:

While it might look like it’s covering your whole screen, don’t worry, you can just place it over your party list or your chatlog. As MNK, you don’t need to know what the rest of the group is doing anyway.

In case it’s not clear, this is a bad advice post. Please don’t be bad.

Can you draw these FFXIV job and class icons?

It is several months ago since this trended on Twitter. I always meant to fill it out but I eventually forgot about it. Now it’s time, to do what has to be done: Can I draw these icons?

Oh right, my name is Riiko Rinkoko and my main job is WHM.

LOL if this was a test at school I would have failed due to forgetting my name… It’s been many years since school, please forgive me!

I’m surprised how many icons I could remember – the wrong way around! Many would have to be mirrored horizontally to be correct. If there is anyone around who can explain this phenomenon, please do!

After finishing, I noticed that I drew SCH as a Butt Mage when in fact it is a Boob Mage! O.O; Please check it thoroughly, everyone!

Here you can find the original post with the blank form if you would like to fill this out too! :D
