I usually have 3 going at a time... I think I'll be playing MechWarrior Online, Neverwinter, and XIV at the same time. Usually I LFG or wait for good shouts in XIV while playing quick matches in games like MWO, depending on how demanding Neverwinter is... I might grind or craft or something while waiting for XIV fun. I plan to have XIV as my main MMO though
This is what I do, except substitute those games for games like rpgs(ff,dishonored,skyrim,etc), street fighter, littlebigplanet, etc... movies, shows and sex...
I'm a FF mmo fan to the core(oldschool too nin,war,war,war,brd,rdm pties), no other one has compared to xi and im sure xiv will be my next thing... although, I've been thinking about subing ffxi with my friend and finishing our beastmaster duo :D
nin war war war bdr rdm isnt oldschool.... old but not oldschool
LoL what's an old school setup then?
Actually, it depends if your gonna get all technical, I guess I shouldn't have brought an inside joke outside >.> some people that played xi outside of my circle know what I mean though, still, I'm curious...

old school would be those of us who got a job to 75 BEFORE toau.. when parties consisted of a tank, 2 DDs, a healer, refresher and a blm (or maybe in some cases 3 DDs and the role of refresher and healer would be played by one job)
back when you still did skill chains and magic bursts (hence the blms)
LoL, well I beta'd xi, so I could go earlier than that, but dude, you just named what I put in the first place, except the 3 wars "CAN" be exchanged, but BUT, you see my way was preferred by experienced players
nin,war,war,war (no one tanked lol, tank WHAT lol)
brd,rdm (basically every one pulled, (had to be a knowledgeable rdm to do so, which meant /whm) both mages healed, pulled and refreshed, you pull with provoke, which makes nin, the main puller because more shadows,
LoL I just gaged your ffxi knowledge, anyway the thing is with blms and other dd is rampage/NI/subshadows/provoke/slash whm on both brd & rdm and the fact that blms went off to manaburn and all this could be done before TOAU, and COP
I guess it just depens on how you played the game to get my little pun of nin warx3 brd rdm, its efficient and fast, thf & rng could sub, but thfs have epeen on mobs or its snot warx3... gosh all this xi talk... im so nostalgic, me and my friend chat for hours about stuffs like this lol
well beck then you needed tanks... i dont think three wars would suffice in sky/moon etc etc parties.. and if they did it was hell on the healer.. and yes BLMs COUDL manaburn back then.. the difference between back then and during toau is back then it was by choice... after toau it was because they HAD no other choice (i.e parties didnt want them anymore)
well, yeah, these kinds of parties weren't well known for endgame before toau, but at 41rdm up w/ brd ballad, you could still rush through mobs, one thing to note, is mob level as well, chaining vts also helped, which is why the voke pull and extra vokers... mage pullers, these zones would also be crowded, but a pt with this build, subbing the wars or two wars for thf, rng, and one war for a dd would still equal good xp, its ideal,
also when I say oldschool, i mean in setups compared to pups, dancer, sch, heavy parties, pups became stronger, blue mages, cors were popular... but before those jobs you had the ideal setup for xp, nin(main tank/puller) 3dd best to worst(oldschool) war(rmp/decentgear) thf/nin rng/ mnk,(<--tp jobs, should get ws off regularly) drg/drk(same) then for healers brd/rdm didnt need whm blm,(funny, since they were needed for endgame)
lol i for one rarely looked for blms, depended on if i wanted sc heavy xp, but i manaburned with them on brd and many of them liked the fact that they could burn slimes as opposed to pting, even motivated some to lvl blm
