FFXIV: What About The New Jobs Coming To Dawntrail? - Viper & Pictomancer

With the release date of FFXIV Dawntrail getting closer, here I will talk about the two new jobs that will be added in the new expansion, Viper and Pictomancer.

In this guide, I will give an overview of these jobs and their play styles. I will not discuss job potential at all, mainly because this is pre-release, so the numbers are not final. At the end, we will also talk about my personal thoughts on the two new jobs.

Before I get into it, I want to remind you that it is very important to have enough FFXIV Gil if you want to unlock the new jobs in the new expansion as soon as possible and make it to the level cap. Let’s get straight into it.


Viper is a job that combines Monk, Samurai, and Reaper with an extreme simplification. Its Awakened mode is basically like Enshroud, but somehow even more busy and flashy, and the base rotation is a more complex version of Monk Combo Tree.

One of its attacks applies a debuff to enemies, just like Reaper, while the other two buffs apply damage and speed buffs to you, just like Samurai. On top of that, it also has a resource giving attack that gives you access to three more attacks.

Let’s break down the most confusing part, the main combo. This is probably because, despite being very similar to Samurai, the combo is condensed down to just two buttons.

We have the basic form with two buttons, one of which applies a debuff to your target for 20 seconds, stacking up to 40 seconds. Whichever button you press, both will move to the second step. One of them will give you an attack buff, while the other will give you an attack speed buff.

Depending on which of the two buttons you press, they will move to a different pair of buttons. Two rear position skills, or two flanking positions. The speed buff always results in the rear position, while the damage buff results in the flanking position. The way these positions work is that they have a set pattern. You can start the fight with any of them at will. After that, they will combo with each other specifically.

This part is mostly automated. The on-screen sword gauge will tell you which skills you should use, but the game will also light up the skills you need to hit in the correct order to follow the buff sequence.

All in all, the only part you really need to pay attention to is the first time you hit the combo to ensure the debuff on the boss stays put. The rest of the time, you just need to press another button.

Next, for its two skills, they share cooldowns and recharges, but we’re only focusing on this single target version. This will grant you one Red Gem, up to three, and apply your debuff to the target.

Red Gems are used for this skill, which is also an AoE, and each use of this skill will enable you to make three additional attacks. The two “proc” skills are hooked up to your buffs, and they will give you damage and speed buffs, respectively.

They also have positions, the same as the main combo. The attack up button is the flank position, and the speedup is the rear position. You’ll want to use these, of course, but it’s not as simple as just pressing them.

Using a Red Gem or attack buff will cause the button on the left to light up, and pressing that button will cause the button on the right to light up for the combo. Pressing the speed up skill will cause the button on the right to light up, combo with the button on the left. You can use oGCD exactly twice, so you need to follow the correct combo order.

Overall, this is actually a pretty simple job. The confusing part is what’s hidden behind the button condensing and procs.


Moving on to Pictomancer, this one is completely different. I would describe it as an upkeep job. You have to constantly upkeep on your paintings to get the most damage.

At the start of any mission, you need to paint on all three canvases, which have long cast times in combat, but no cast times outside of combat.

We have a basic spell combo for a single target and AoE. Completing this combo will grant you 25 gauge and a color splotch. With 50 gauge, you can use Subtractive Palette, which turns one of your color splotch into a dark splotch.

If you don’t have it on the palette, the buff will be applied the next time you get it. If you have a dark splotch, you can spend these on Holy or Dark Comet. Naturally, Dark Comet is more powerful because of the restrictions.

Subtractive Palette also allows you to use a combination of minor spells with three Aetherhue GCDs. These spells take longer to cast, but do more damage. Despite requiring Subtractive Palette, this combination also gives you a white splotch.

With the paintings, things start to get complicated. We have creature, weapon, and landscape, in that order. The creature section will cycle through four different paintings.

The weapon painting here is a little weird. Hitting oGCD does not cause an attack, but gives you access to a dedicated button to instantly cast a three-hit combo. Finally, the landscape painting gives us access to a two-minute cooldown.

Next up is Inspiration. The cast and recast time of Star Prism and Aetherhue spells will be reduced by a quarter. Star Prism can be used once, which also gives you Starstruck. Hyperphantasia is the stack you want to deplete by using Star Prism, Aetherhue spells, and Comet.

Your special Rainbow Drip skill will go into effect immediately after you use up all your mana, and it has a long cast time, so it might also be a good pre-pull cast.

So let’s wrap it up. The key to this job is to use your base combo to get gauge and paint splotches. Subtractive Palette can darken them and get a more powerful combo.

Your entire toolkit is pretty much AoE skills, too. You just need to swap AoE versions of the two combos to switch between the two.

We also have other non-offensive skills. The first is Tempera Coat, a 20% max HP shield. The other is Tempera Grassa, which turns your coat into an AoE that gives 10% max HP to the team. So protect yourself or protect the team. It’s your choice.

That’s all I know about the two new jobs, Viper and Pictomancer. If you know of some details that I didn’t pay attention to, please share! Good luck!

WOW Cataclysm Classic: You’ll Need These Best New Recipes As An Illustrious Cook

Cataclysm expansion has torn Azeroth apart once again, and with the release of the new World of Warcraft expansion comes a new level cap of 85 for characters, as well as professions like Fishing, First Aid, and Cooking.

Illustrious Grand Master in the latest version starts at level 425, the highest level in Wrath expansion, capping at 525. This also means a whole new set of daily cooking quests and new recipes to use.

For players who want to have a taste for fine cooking, there are over 30 new recipes to learn in Cataclysm, even if you don’t have the skill and the buffs. However, these Chef’s Awards take a lot of time to accumulate, so you’ll need to prioritize your recipes. This guide will introduce you to some of the most useful Illustrious Grand Master cooks as you explore the new areas.

Knowing About Recipes

Each major city, such as Dalaran and Shattrath, a neutral city, will have a Cooking trainer who will teach you Illustrious Cooking Mastery. Once you visit the trainer and gain Illustrious Cooking Mastery skill, you can craft new Cataclysm recipes.

Each major city will have 5 different Daily Quests for both factions, and completing all of them will earn your Achievements. These are things you can learn from your trainer, or you can earn from vendors using Chef’s Awards. Other rare and magical recipes can be earned by honing your reputation with WoW Cataclysm Classic Gold.

For those new to these events, it can be a question of which areas are more likely to find what Cooking materials. Hyjal and Vash’jr are the first places players visit, so you’ll want to make sure you have your fishing gear fully stocked before you start exploring.

The following recipes all cost 3 Chef’s Awards, and while Cooking materials may be item level 80 or higher, the recipes have no level requirements. As long as you don’t mind taking a few risks when gathering materials, they’ll increase Cooking from 425 to 525 without having to go past level 80.

The good news is that even if you have unlocked no quests or flight paths, you can still explore new areas and go fishing or hunting.

This is probably the easiest recipe for low-level Chefs to get started with, as long as you’re at level 450. You can use the buffs from these foods for grinding, PVE, and non-Heroic dungeons. Don’t forget to invest in some Imported Supplies for those hard-to-find materials.
