    I guess for people starting today with barely no legendaries fish caught already, it must be pretty daunting, and can look to what you described, “a day of running after them all around the world”.

    What I was saying was more for players up to date patch wise, it’s down to a low number of scattered short windows, and really doesn’t look like a grind, ~10min every couple of days, here and there.

    Catching legendaries used to be very painful and grindy in ARR, but it became something else since, the windows are short, meaning that if you do it manually, it shouldn’t feel like a grind and/or a chore, and therefore a bot in this situation is less useful I think.

    It doesn’t mean that what you wished is useless, it is just that, since you will likely set up alarm for those, and get there by yourself, you might as well spend 5-10min to manually try to catch those, besides the one coming from the final patch of an expansion (the x.5), they’re all quick enough to catch, the difficulty being solving their requirements, which well known web sites do it for us anyway.

    It’s just my personal view on those, I found out that the easiest and quickest way was just to set up alarms, get there, spend a couple of minute trying manually, that way I know I optimised fully the short window.
    Some of the hardest from HW had long windows for which I used Miqo, but since those, it’s really only short windows.
    And before they add the exclamation points to tell us which tug it is, I used to check Miqo Monitor Tab, where even if you’re not using her to catch fish, she still gives you the fish size, that helped me a lot to manually catch those fish. I wouldn’t have done that if it meant spending more than 12min doing it though.

    I was just bringing this for the cost/usefulness ratio of the development of such features.

    Yes, as long as you respect one of those 2 things:

    All important skills must be reachable by keyboard. If you want Miqobot to be able to mount, make sure to drop your mount on a hotbar. If you want her to stealth, leave a stealth icon somewhere.

    An icon can be reachable in two ways:

    1. Either by assigning a shortcut directly.
    2. Or by switching to another hotbar and pressing that icon like it was on first hotbar.

    In order to be able to do it the second way, Miqobot will have to use Switch-To actions. By default, the game assigns Shift‑(number) shortcuts to each of them. If you have remapped Shift‑(number) to something else, please make sure that you put something there in return. For example, Ctrl‑Alt‑Shift‑(number).

    And make sure there’s a keybind on every hotbar slot you put your actions on, and make sure that when you level up and won a new ability, that it had enough free room on your hotbar to pop there by itself, otherwise you’ll have to put it there manually.

    It’s worth using it at any level, for any recipe, it was made to completely adapt itself to your level, the abilities you have, your gear and your stats. Evolving with you, automatically.

    No matter if you have different crafting jobs at different levels, different gear set for each crafting job cause they’re at different level, etc. the bot will always adapt and do the best craft possible.

    It will attempt to HQ anything you want, and unless your stats are really bad, it will succeed.

    Yeah LutBot is right, I just did another batch of 100 craft for Ishgard, but this time with a Specialist job, so with better stats than previously, the Specialist Crystal giving me +20 Craftmanship/+20 Control/+15 CP.

    So this put me with food at 2510/2298/622, and this time, instead of ending up with 90% of craft beyond 4500 quality, I ended up with 96% beyond 4500 quality, and instead of finishing with 70 000 points, I finished with 79 000 points, which means overall craft had better quality on average.

    Zzoomers, maybe tell us your stats so we have a better understanding of your issue.

    Yeah make sure every single one abilities are on your hotbars, make sure they are really the ones of the job you’re using (common mistake some people did here in the past, having a GSM ability instead of the corresponding CUL one on the CUL hotbar for example), and make sure you gave each abilities a working keybind.

    All that is done. Still having problems maybe it is my gear or something else?

    With food, I have 2490/2278/607, and this yield 90% of Ishgard expert craft beyond 4500 quality threshold (accurate % coming from now over 200 craft).

    It’s between double and pentameld, but cheap ones, so I’m far from hitting the maximum possible for those stats, except for CP.

    Check if your gear is near that or not, try to aim for those stats, max out CP, it’s cheap and easy. Tools are only triple meld, cause too many tools. Focus meld on the shared pieces of gear.

    The new crafting solver is once again amazing, so fast, so efficient.

    So far I’ve tested it only for Ishgard expert recipes, out of 100 craft, only 10% ended up below the minimum quality threshold, and that’s only because of very bad RNG from what I can tell, so it was totally expected on those special recipes and is part of that specific content.

    It just took me 110 craft in order to deliver 100 good ones, with quite a lot at max quality, sorry I didn’t took note of how many, but with 100 delivered craft I got a total of 70 000 points.

    Miqo only need on average about 42 steps and 2min to finish those expert craft, it’s way faster than what I was expecting.

    I can’t wait to test it on regular 80*** recipes now.

    I’m very glad we got that update before 5.3, I think I’m gonna ask Miqo to do 2000 craft instead of the 800 I planned for that content, this is so efficient and so easy with Miqo, and just one button to click, no prerequisites, can’t be more user friendly and easy.

    Thanks Miqo, this is impressive, it saves me so many hours.

    Also remember that SE can secretly monitor unusual/unlikely human activities, it’s fairly simple for them to set up automatic warning when someone run the same instance back to back for more than x amount of hours.

    If you want to stay below the radar, always try to replicate a normal human way of playing the game, with breaks, AFK, long disconnection for sleeping, changing activities often, etc.

    That way if they ever try to set up such automatic warning system, you should stay unnoticeable.

    What exactly are you looking for with the crafting system? It’s pretty perfect imo.

    Probably Ishgard rebuilt expert recipes, it’s like they were meant for Miqobot, you can’t really macro them, they’re a pain in the ass to do manually and there’s 800 to do, it’s giving Miqobot crafting solver all its glory usefulness.

    And 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 will likely have 800 new craft each.

    It’s like the perfect job for Miqo.

    Just set up ACT voice trigger for that, and set up a hotkey to turn on/off Miqobot on the fly, this simple behaviour save tons of work from dev, it’s not worth all the working hours when workaround like this one is easy to handle by the user.

    For E8S and the mirrored gaze, you’ll have to do it once or twice depending on the pattern, there’s 3 gaze, one that is 100% avoidable without stopping fighting if the strategy is executed properly (2nd one), one that can’t be avoided (1st one), and one that depends on the pattern (final one).

    Usually what players are after is the opposite.

    They’re looking for being able to tell Miqo when to weave some oGCD, but not all oGCD, mostly the ones that are not part of any “rotation”, the ones Miqo can’t really figure out because they depend on mechanics or strategies set by the party or really specific situation etc.

    What is your current level? Because the way XIV is built, is that you have to go through the Main Story Quest to unlock every features of the game, and during that, the game will offer you the entirety of EXP for one class/job, it is accurately built so that you don’t have to worry about EXP for your first job, from level 1 to level 80, from A Realm Reborn (2.0) to Shadowbringer (5.0), doing all Main Story Quest as well as most side quest will reward you exactly all the EXP.

    This means that first, you should enjoy going through all the 10 years of the game, well 7 years of the game since it doesn’t include 1.0 any more, and then when you’re at the endgame with one job at max level and everything else unlocked, you can start to EXP the other ones using Miqobot, you will have by then unlocked features and bonuses that will help in the process, such as +50% EXP because you have one job at max level, etc.

    Then, with Miqobot (because there’s really tons of different way to EXP, it was in fact meant to combine them all and break the monotony), with Miqobot you can use the Grand Company Squadrons from level 20 to 71, then the new Trust system from 71 to 80, this is all automated.

    And/or you can use the combat assist features of Miqobot to let her do the “rotations” while you take care of the rest (moving, mechanics, etc.), that way if you wan to EXP faster you can do daily roulettes with her, Deep Dungeon, Beast Tribe, etc. most of the things that includes daily EXP bonuses (PvP excluded).

    So it depends where you are right now, and what you like to do.
    If you’re at the very beginning, then get to endgame, you can use Miqobot DPS assist feature along the way if you want, or do it yourself, it’s up to you.
    It’s not advised at all to level up Disciple of War and Discipline of Magic jobs all at the same time when you’re not yet at endgame.
    You need one Discipline of War or Magic at level 80, then you can take care of the other ones.

    As for Discipline of Hand and Land jobs, it is advised also to wait to reach endgame before starting them, and then it is advised to level up them all synchronised, from 1 to 80, because their synergy will help you in the process (every craft need sub-craft from other jobs, and mats from all gatherer, etc.) so leveling them up synchronised make complete sense.

    SE just announced in regard of health situation that they were delaying 5.3 from early June to early July also, that would put 5.31 around mid-July now.
