It is extremely disappointing for me personally to see this commotion around third party tools once again in the wake of what happened with Dragonsong’s Reprise (Ultimate). As an individual entrusted with full oversight of FFXIV, it is my responsibility to enact countermeasures and police the use of these tools, as well as educate people not to use these types of third-party tools; this is especially unfortunate when I as a player encourage everyone who is learning this content by trial and error and striving to clear it.
