PlayStation 3 Platform RSS Feed | PlayStation 3 RSS Feed on en Launch Media Network Terraria Console Commands: Building a Better Server Thu, 16 Jan 2020 14:47:34 -0500 Jordan Baranowski

Like many open-world building games, Terraria can move from fun hobby to total obsession when you start playing around with custom servers. There are a seemingly infinite number of things you can do once you start delving into this aspect of the game, and console commands will help you make the most of it.

Setting up a server in Terraria is a fairly simple process, and it will be a big help towards letting you customize the game to your liking. Hosting a server is a great way to bring friends into a persistent world that you can return to over and over. It's also a great way to test new things in a game that rewards experimentation and curiosity.

These console commands help you adjust your server and the players in it as well as helping you to close everything down when you're ready to call it an evening. Here are all the console commands in Terraria and the command line parameters you can use when launching a server. You need to be hosting the server in order to use these commands, by the way.

Terraria Command Line Parameters

When you first run a new Terraria server, you can use these commands to help customize the rules and settings of the server.

  • -config  Indicates a specific configuration file to use
  • -port  Indicates which port to listen on

  • -secure  Adds cheat protection
  • -noupnp  Turns off universal plug and play
  • -steam  Adds Steam support
  • -lobby or  Determines whether friends can join the server

Terraria Console Commands

While you are hosting a Terraria server, you can input any of these commands into the console to change several parameters.

  • help  Brings up a command list
  • playing  Loads a list of players currently on the server. You can also type /playing in chat to see the same effect.

Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls Character Creation Tips and Tricks Wed, 15 Jan 2020 03:15:02 -0500 Ty Arthur

Archaic to a fault, the character creation and combat system in Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls can be utterly incomprehensible to a new player especially since there's no tutorial!

Forget about the starter party found in the Guild. They aren't built to last. We're going to skip those lame adventurers and show you how to steamroll the entire game by building an ultimate party of second-tier characters right from the start.

Registering New Party Members

 20's not bad, but we can do better

After creating your base character, it's time to put together a new party of adventurers. Ignore the pre-created options and instead build your own crew to take advantage of the random rolling mechanic.

Head to Guild and choose Register. Before picking a name, race, or gender, take a look at the "Bonus" number listed above the base stats.

In most cases, there will be a really sad number here, like 7 or 10. You might see a 12 your first time. That's a nonsense number that will result in a sub-par adventurer with low health and no ability to pick a second-tier class immediately.

To avoid this problem, back out of the screen and choose Register again you'll notice the Bonus number is different as it re-rolls every time you enter this screen. Keep doing this until you get a worthwhile number to work with. A Bonus of 30 is what we're aiming for, but if you get tired of re-rolling, anything in the 20-30 range works fine.

The Bonus is totally randomized each time you go to the Register screen, but it tends to become worse over time, which means you need to reset the counter eventually.

Continue this process until you consistently get a Bonus in the 6-10 range over and over. At that point, return to town and press the "S" key to bring up the main menu and choose Return To Title.

From there, continue your game, then repeat the process of Registering a new adventurer until you get the number you want.

It is possible, but highly unlikely, to get a 40. Spending the hours necessary (and yes, it will be hours unless you are extraordinarily lucky) to get the very rare 40 Bonus has one main benefit due to the base race stats a human, elf, or dwarf can start as a Ninja from Level 1.

Alignment, Second-Tier Class Requirements

Now that you've got your high Bonus, it's time to start building a character. You will need to decide on both alignment and where all those points will go. Evil adventurers won't work with Good, and vice versa, while Neutral will work with either.

There are ways to work around this restriction to still have a full party of both Priests and Thieves since Priests can be Good or Evil. However, there are two second-tier classes that will never work together: the Ninja (Evil) or the Lord (Good).

The Ninja is, hands down, the best single class in the game and capable of one-hit killing many enemies. However, you may want to go the Good and Neutral route instead to utilize our ultimate party build.

Class, Alignment, Stats List

Below we list out each class along with their alignment restrictions and the starting stats they require. If you use the Wizardry re-rolling method above, you can start most adventurers as a second-tier class. Otherwise, you will need to upgrade them over time as their stats increase while leveling.

Don't forget you don't actually have to go into combat to level at all! Spending gold on tithing at the Church can quickly level a new adventurer as far as you need to take them.

Class Alignment Stats
Fighter Good
Strength 12 
Mage Good
Intelligence 12
Priest Good
Piety 12
Thief Neutral
Agility 10
Luck 12
Bishop Good
Intelligence 13
Piety 13
Samurai Good
Strength 15
Intelligence 11
Piety 10
Vitality 14
Agility 10
Luck 9
Lord Good Strength 15
Intelligence 12
Piety 12
Vitality 15
Agility 14
Luck 15
Ninja Evil Strength 15
Intelligence 15
Piety 15
Vitality 15
Agility 15
Luck 15


Building the Perfect Party

Here's what you need to know that Wizardry doesn't tell you: each party member can change classes three times, and they retain all their spells from the first two classes.

Although it sounds counter-intuitive since your group will be squishy at the beginning, one of the best party lineups consists of a full six spell casters with a mix of Mage, Priest, and Bishop

By using the point-scumming method above, each Mage, Priest, or Bishop will start with enough HP and physical damage to survive if you put your extra points in Vitality and Strength. If you aren't brave enough to go full speed ahead with all six glass cannons, it's also viable to use one base Fighter in the front row instead.

If you don't intend to switch to the Ninja class at any point, make all six adventurers either Good or Neutral. If you want Ninja, then go with Evil instead.

After they gain all the spells from their original class while leveling up, head to the Guild and switch that character to the opposite class  from Priest/Bishop to Mage or vice versa.

From there, level them again until they gain all the new class spells, resulting in a character with all the healing and damaging spells at the same time. For the final class change, switch to a melee-focused class such as Lord or Fighter for an entire uber party of ultimate multi-classed adventurers.

This method leaves you without a Thief for treasure chests or a Ninja for one-hit kills, however. If you want to add a Thief and eventually upgrade to Ninja, make sure your Priests/Bishops are Evil instead of Good. You lose out on the Lord class, but the trade-off can be worth the loss.

GTA Online Diamond Casino Heist Walkthrough Mon, 23 Dec 2019 10:18:13 -0500 Sergey_3847

The Diamond Casino Heist is a new heist job in GTA Online's Diamond Casino and Resort update. The casino heist is by far the most complicated heist GTA Online players have seen, but it offers some good ways to make a lot of money along the way.

If you don't know how to start the Casino Heist or if you are stuck on one of the missions, our walkthrough on how to complete this job in GTA Online is outlined below.

Step 1: Buy an Arcade

Click to enlarge

Before you can start The Diamond Casino Heist in GTA Online, you need to purchase one of the six possible retro arcades in the game. You must talk to Lester in Mirror Park to access the arcades. 

After you talk to Lester and the six arcade locations appear on the map, you can use the Maze Bank Foreclosures store webpage on your mobile phone to purchase one of the arcade locations.

Here are all the locations and their prices. The best arcades are located in the city.

  • Pixel Pete’s
    • Price: $1,235,000
    • Location: Paleto Bay
  • Wonderama 
    • Price: $1,565,000
    • Location: Grapeseed
  • Videogeddon 
    • Price: $1,875,000
    • Location: La Mesa
  • Warehouse 
    • Price: $2,135,000
    • Location: Davis
  • Insert Coin 
    • Price: $2,345,000
    • Location: Rockford Hills
  • Eight Bit 
    • Price: $2,530,000
    • Location: Vinewood

Step 2: Set Up Your Heist

Once you have your arcade location up and running, you can enter Lester's underground base, where you will gain access to three blackboards. Use these blackboards to manage your heist.

The three blackboards represent the three following stages of the heist:

  • The Set Up
  • The Prep
  • The Heist

The first blackboard is dedicated to helping you set up your heist. You will see the "To Do" list in the upper right corner, which is a list of actions you must perform before the actual heist.

You can also choose to do the optional list of tasks, but you will have to pay for all of the intelligence associated with them, so we'll just focus on the main missions.

Scope Out Casino

This is the first task you need to complete. To make things easier, it is advisable to purchase the two extras from the setup board:

  • Casino Model 
    • Price: $130,000
  • Door Security 
    • Price: $425,000

These two pieces of intelligence will help you to find all of the safest entry points into the casino.

Scope Out Vault Contents

After you arrive at the casino and find the vault, you can scope it out for four types of valuables:

  • Cash
    • Price: $2,115,000
  • Artwork
    • Price: $2,350,000
  • Gold
    • Price: $2,585,000
  • Diamonds
    • Price: $3,290,000

You can only choose one of the four options, and they are random. The best loot you can get from the vault is diamonds, which cost over $3 million. The least profitable is cash. So if you happen to get the case with diamonds, then select it and mark it on your blackboard.

Select Approach

The final part of the setup is selecting one of the three available approaches:

  • Silent and Sneaky
  • The Big Con
  • Aggressive

All three approaches offer different types of gameplay. Silent and Sneaky is obviously a stealth plan; The Big Con uses tricks and disguises; and Aggressive offers a full-on guns blazing robbery.

It doesn't matter which approach you choose, as they all lead to the same results. Choose the style that fits your personal taste the most. 

Step 3: Prep Your Heist

This stage of the heist requires the most time and money. This stage is where you hire your crew of NPCs, select disguises, vehicles, and other necessary items from the "To Do" list.

Support Crew

In this first section, you can choose three possible crewmen for the heist:

  • Gunman
  • Driver
  • Hacker

All three categories offer different skills, but these also come with varying prices. Whenever you choose a crewman, it will show you their cut in percentages. Obviously, the higher the skill, the higher the cut.

In this case, it is strongly recommended that you take all three Expert level crewmen, where each will take 9% of your heist earnings. It's a lot of money to give away, but you will have the highest quality weapons and vehicles during the heist.

The To-Do List

After you have chosen your team, you can start the six main prep missions. In each of these missions, you need to select which item types you wish to steal.

Below you will find the best choices for the prep missions:

  • Rifle Loadout 
    • Unmarked Weapons
  • Sultan Classic
    • Getaway Vehicles
  • Gruppe Sechs
    • Entry Disguise
  • Noose Gear
    • Exit Disguise

During the Getaway Vehicles mission, you will also have the choice to upgrade your vehicles. You can buy bulletproof tires for $25,000, which will make the getaway section easier. 

Step 4: Start the Diamond Casino Heist

You will be offered a chance to choose your buyer and get some extra help on the third blackboard.

Choose Buyer

Buyers have three levels: low, middle, and high. Always go for the high-level buyer. They will offer the most amount of money. The heist will be more difficult, but if you've done your prep correctly, and spent cash on the right things, then you should be fine.

Also buy a Clean Vehicle and Gunman Decoy for $50,000 if you can. 

Starting the Mission

If you've selected the Gruppe Sechs entrance disguise and The Big Con approach, then you will start the heist mission in an armored truck, which is the best for this mission.

Here's how to get through the entire heist easily:

  1. Enter the underground garage of the casino
  2. Take the elevator to the vault
  3. Run past all the guards without killing them
  4. Use the vault keycard
  5. Let the casino worker open the vault for you
  6. Get the loot
  7. Exit the vault floor through the staircase
  8. Change the disguise in the locker room (Noose)
  9. Exit the casino through the staff door

When you're outside the casino, you can safely deliver the vault contents to your buyer.

Finish the Mission

The only problem you might run into during this final stage of the heist is the chasing helicopter. Steal any car you see and use it to deliver the loot (if you didn't purchase the Clean Vehicle option ahead of time).

If cops start chasing you, use the underground sewer system to get away from them and stay undetected. Follow the marker on the map to your buyer's location.

When you've reached the buyer location, the mission ends with a cutscene, and you get your money reward.

5 Reasons to Play Minecraft Java Over Bedrock Mon, 16 Dec 2019 10:27:30 -0500 Sergey_3847


Crawling and Swimming


Believe it or not, but even such a simple move as crawling can require a lot of set-up in Bedrock edition. In Java all you have to do is simply put a trapdoor at the entrance into the area that is one block wide, and your character will start crawling without getting suffocated.


In Bedrock edition even while swimming one can get easily suffocated, if you don't trick the game by going through a one-block gap and make the game think that you're still swimming while on ground.


So why complicate your life, when you can just use the best and the simplest tools available in Java edition.




These were five reasons to play Java over Bedrock, and for more Minecraft guides, check out the list below:


Creative Mode


Survival mode in both versions is quite challenging and requires a lot of knowledge and time for some really cool things to happen. But there is no denying that Java edition is exceptional when it comes to Creative mode.


The winning factor is the inventory in Java edition, which is far superior to that of the Bedrock version. Besides a much more elaborate categorization of items the inventory in Java has Search Items window, which is indispensable when you need to find one specific item by name.


This one addition will save you so much time when creating new worlds in Minecraft.


Farms and Spawners


If you like farming for items, blocks, mobs or even spawners, then you should always choose Java edition for this purpose. Why? The answer is simple: everything grows faster in Java edition.


Actually, farming in Bedrock is a bit buggy and will never compare in terms of productivity with the Java farms. You can go really far and spawn an incredible amount of items on your Java farm, if you do everything right; but in Bedrock you will most likely end up short even after longer periods of time.


Mob farming is especially complicated in Bedrock and often doesn't go as planned. So in this regard Java edition is definitely beyond competition.


Redstone Power


Redstone dust is some of the most useful material in all of Minecraft. However, Mojang has intentionally made this resource work differently in Java and Bedrock editions.


The Redstone works in Java in a much simpler way, and at times it even defies logic - that's how simple it is. But players who've been using Redstone in Bedrock version need to put way more effort into the design of connections between blocks infused with Redstone power.


This means that Redstone connectivity is far easier and more flexible in Java than in Bedrock edition. Many Java players will dislike the Bedrock Redstone simply because it requires more effort, which isn't always a good thing when you need to quickly come up with a simple trigger mechanic.


Java Includes Bedrock


One of the top reasons why Java edition is better than Bedrock is the simple fact that when you buy Java version, you automatically receive tons of exclusive Bedrock edition features in the latest release of Java 1.15. So why buy Bedrock separately, when you can have them together for one price?


Here are some of the features that were exclusive to Bedrock, but not anymore and now available in Java, too:

  • Setting respawn points at any time
  • \n
  • Redstone can now power bells
  • \n
  • Turning off phantoms
  • \n
  • Cancelling fall and fire damage
  • \n
  • ... And many others
  • \n

All this means that two versions are now closer than ever before, and they are no longer that much different anymore. So get yourself the latest Java edition of Minecraft and enjoy all these and many other features of the Bedrock edition.


Mojang offers Minecraft on various platforms through a number of editions. The two main ones are Java and Bedrock. Although Bedrock edition of Minecraft covers many platforms, including mobile devices and consoles, and has crossplay, the Java edition of the game is superior in many ways.


If you've been wondering which version to purchase (especially with PS4 getting Bedrock), then here you will find five main reasons how Java edition wins against Bedrock. Of course, at the end of the day it all comes down to each player's personal preferences, but there are things that many players agree upon universally.


So jump right into the article and make up your own mind, whether Java is a better version for you.

GTA Online Cars Guide: The Best the Casino Has to Offer Fri, 15 Nov 2019 11:16:32 -0500 Sergey_3847

When you're playing GTA Online, why settle for second rate? In a game all about style, you want to drive GTA Online's best casino cars. There's no better way to show off how rich and powerful you are than to drive one of the game's best rides. 

Since the release of the Diamond Casino and Resort update for GTA Online, Rockstar has been gradually adding new, exclusive cars to the game's garage. Though this event is finally coming to an end, you can win one of 22 new cars in the casino.

If you don't want to play in the casino, then you can purchase them at the game's various vehicle stores, but that will a rather expensive investment. Many of the best cars added to the Diamond Casino and Resort update cost well over $2 million.

Whether you win them or buy them, there's no doubt you want to know which are the best before taking the plunge. The tips guide below details the price of each car (from most expensive to least expensive), as well as why they're worth considering. 

GTA Online: Best Casino Cars

Benefactor Krieger

Price: $2,875,000

This supercar is an amalgamation of several different car designs. The Krieger combines elements of the Mercedes-AMG One, the Honda NSX, the Audi R8 LMS GT3, and the Porsche 918 into one slick-looking ride. 

The best part is that it looks great and drives well; it has excellent acceleration and handling, which allows you to start off fast after slowing down. It holds well on both highways and in off-road conditions, though thick mud and heavy dirt roads don't treat it well. 

It's also adept at quickly accelerating uphill. Combine that with its ability to drive in many of the game's environments, and it's almost the perfect supercar. Just be sure to keep your break hand at the ready. The Krieger can go a little too fast for some areas. 

Progen Emerus

Price: $2,750,000

The Progen Emerus is another hybrid supercar that mainly combines elements of the McLaren brand, such as the McLaren Senna, the Senna GTR, the McLaren Speedtail, and the McLaren P1 GTR. However, the front of the car looks very much like the Ferrari FXX-K.

The Emerus is just as fast as the Krieger, but that's where the similarities end. Though it's still one of the fastest cars in the game, which is great for racing, it does not handle well. If you need to get somewhere unharmed, this car's handling will make things difficult. 

Annis S80RR

Price: $2,575,000

The design of the Annis S80RR is quite unusual for a racing car. It combines elements of several unrelated vehicles, such as the Nissan R90C, the Jaguar XJR-9, and the RE-7B, the latter of which is an interesting choice since it's not even a racing car. 

The looks don't necessarily matter, though, as this rear-wheel-drive car is made for races. It has fantastic steering, which allows you to take on even the most dangerously sharp turns. This means that you can choose to participate in races with tight tracks; against the competition, this car puts you in the lead position as soon as the rubber hits the road. 

Truffade Thrax

Price: $2,325,000

The Truffade Thrax isn't made for racing, but that doesn't mean it can't keep up with the competition. Primarily based on two models of Bugatti, the Divo and the Chiron, it's only distinctive feature is the rear, which seems to originate from the Italdesign Zerouno.

Although the Thrax is primarily made for swindling and escaping during rush hour in San Andreas, it can produce fantastic results in races as well. That's because of its excellent acceleration

The biggest downside to the Thrax is that it's not durable. One too many bumps will send this vehicle to the wrecking yard. 

Pegassi Zorrusso

Price: $1,925,000

The Pegassi Zorrusso is inspired by the same two models that make up the Truffade Thrax. The only exception is the front, which is a clear nod to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

This cabriolet is similar in function to the Benefactor Krieger. Its stats are a bit lower than the Krieger, but the payoff is that it's almost $1 million cheaper than the Krieger. That's something to heavily consider when making your decision. 

To sweeten the pot, you can always upgrade it with an additional pair of turbochargers with the help of Street Set Up mod.

Vysser Neo

Price: $1,875,000

The Vysser Neo is a typical concept sports car that is clearly inspired by Maserati. In this case, we're talking about two specific models: the Maserati 3200 GT and the Maserati GranTurismo.

The distinctive feature of the Neo is its improved suspension. You can take it down some really bad thoroughfares and it will still gallop like a sturdy steed. Though it bounces a tad more than most drivers will like, it also provides powerful stabilization and grip.

Ocelot Locust

Price: $1,625,000

The Ocelot Locust is the only car on the list that does not include may disparate car designs — except for one. The Ocelot Locust is a pure homage to the 1960s Lotus Seven open-top sports car.

Although the Locust looks amazing, its "thin" design presents a pretty dangerous scenario when driving through the streets of San Andreas. The driver can be easily shot while driving, and there is no way to protect oneself from gunfire — unless you run away. 

But it still has respectable speed and acceleration, which may serve you well while racing.


That's it for the best GTA Online casino cars in the Diamond Casino and Resort update. For more GTA Online guides, check out the list below:

How to Learn the New Wall Lean Emote in FFXIV Wed, 13 Nov 2019 12:54:24 -0500 Yaneki

Final Fantasy XIV just released another content patch this week, bring the Ishgardian Restoration and with it came a new wall lean emote. Players have looking everywhere from Party Finders to Market Boards to the Gold Saucer, and even across the new world of Norvrandt. Some are rumored to have even looked at the long abandoned PvP Vendors...

Turns out the two pieces of content released at the same are related, who'd have thought? The Emote is actually one of the rewards available for helping with Ishgardian Reconstruction.

Unlock Ishgardian Reconstruction

To get started, players will have to be any class or job that is at least lvl 60, and have completed the Main Scenario Quest "Litany of Peace." This is something most players will have already completed.

Head to Foundation (X:9.7 Y:11.5) and pick up the quest "Towards Firmament." Complete the quest to unlock Ishgardian Reconstruction and the new city zone in Ishgard.

Do Some Reconstructing!

Next, Disciples of Hand or Land of at least lvl 20 may find and speak to Potkin in the Firmament (X:12.2 Y:14.6). That's right, you'll have to have at least some crafting levels under your belt to help out and get this emote. The good news is, FFXIV's 5.1 patch recently made leveling crafting much, much easier.

Potkin will have Disciples of the Land gather materials, and Disciples of the Hand craft different things. Turn in the required items to Potkin to gain Skybuilder's Scrip and contribute towards the Reconstruction!

Actually Getting the Emote

Once you have accumulated 1800 Skybuilder's Scrip, head over to Enie, also in the Firmament (X:12.0 Y:14.0). Enie is the rewards vendor for the Reconstruction, and sells a couple different rewards, but the one you'll want is "Ballroom Etiquette - Winsome Wallflower."

Purchase it, use the item, and you'll be able to use the new emote!

Definitive Final Fantasy XIV BLM Rotations for Level 80 Fri, 08 Nov 2019 12:53:29 -0500 Yaneki

Final Fantasy XIV's black mages (known as BLM) saw some heavy changes with the Shadowbringers expansion in mid-2019, and even now moving into 2020 many black mage players are still lost on their optimal single target and multiple target rotations at level 80.

A BLM has two distinct rotations for either situation. Like many other classes, the AoE (multiple target) rotation is more simple than its single target counterpart. You must have an in-depth knowledge of the class's mechanics to make the best used of a black mage at endgame.

FFXIV Black Mage AoE Rotation

We'll be starting with the AoE rotation first, since more often than not in a dungeon or raid you'll be building off this rotation to go into your single target rotation.

Some black mages think you should start off the same as your single target rotation. But those BLM are wrong.

The AoE Rotation in Summary:
  1.  Freeze
  2. Enochian
  3.  Thunder IV (and again, every time  Thunder Cloud procs)
  4.  Fire III
  5.  Flare
  6.  Flare
  7.  Foul (If you have Polyglot)
  8. Repeat until mobs are dead
  9.  Transpose (If you have Umbral Fire)
  10.  Umbral Soul (Spam until next pack of mobs or boss is pulled)

To start off with, you'll be targeting the beefiest target in the pack of mobs your tank has pulled and cast Freeze.

This has multiple advantages over casting Blizzard III and into Blizzard IV to gain your Umbral Hearts, the first being time. Freeze Grants you a full stack of Umbral Ice, and one Umbral Heart, which is all you need for the AoE rotation. It's also an AoE spell, so you'll do a bit of damage to everything in the pack.

Next, slap that Enochian. This is the most important part of both BLM rotations, and you will be casting around the idea of keeping this spell up at all times. Not only does the buff grant you 15% bonus Magic Damage, but for every 30s you manage to keep it up, you will be granted one Polyglot, which are used to cast your most powerful spells. It's also required for casting Fire IV or Blizzard IV.

To top off this half of the rotation, you'll be casting Thunder IV. This will hit every single mob in the pack with lightening damage and put a Lightning DoT on them as well.

Each tick from every single DoT has a 10% of granting you Thunder Cloud, which lets you cast Thunder IV again for free. This will also deal the full remaining damage of the Thunder IV DoT on each target it hits.

After finishing that first half of the rotation, you'll switch over to doing your real damage.

Cast Fire III. This will damage your target, remove your stacks of Umbral Ice, and grant you full stacks of Umbral Fire. This empowers all your Fire spells while increasing their MP cost. Then cast Flare, and brace your eyeballs for the bright explosion of fiery goodness hitting every mob in range.

Normally Flare completely depletes your MP. Because we have the Umbral Heart from Freeze, you'll still have 1/3rd of your MP left, which is enough to immediately cast another Flare.

Now that you're without MP, you have two options.

If you have a Polyglot from your Enochian upkeep, cast Foul. This is Flare's bad ass older brother, and essentially does the same thing but is much more powerful. If you can't cast Foul yet, then you'll go back to the start of the rotation and cast Freeze again. This removes your stacks of Umbral Fire, grants you full stacks of Umbral Ice, and will quickly replenish your MP.

After you've finished killing everything in your path, you'll use Tranpose if you have Umbral Fire active to switch to Umbral Ice, then spam Umbral Soul until you get to the next pack of mobs or boss you need to destroy.

If you feel like showing off, you can cast some of your cooldown spells like Leylines or Swiftcast, but this is 100% not necessary for trash mobs.

FFXIV Black Mage Single Target Rotation

BLM's single target rotation often builds off your AoE's rotation, meaning you'll have Enochian active and a full stack of Umbral Ice and Umbral Hearts from using Umbral Soul. You'll thus be able to skip to a certain point in the rotation, but for now we'll be assuming you're starting your rotation fresh, nothing to build off of.

The Single Target Rotation in Summary:
  1.  Swiftcast
  2.  Blizzard III
  3.  Enochian
  4.  Blizzard IV
  5.  Thunder III
  6.  Fire III
  7.  Leylines (Cast whenever available in a safe spot where minimal movement is required)
  8.  Fire IV x3
  9.  Fire
  10.  Fire IV x3
  11.  Despair
  12.  Xenoglossy (If Polyglot is available)
  13. Repeat from Step 2, ignoring Step 3.

Start by casting Swiftcast, then use it to cast Blizzard III, this grants you a full stack of Umbral Ice, which you'll need to proceed quickly.

Next cast Enochian, then follow up with Blizzard IV, which will grant you three stacks of Umbral Hearts. Umbral Hearts are important because they greatly reduce the MP cost of your fire spells.

Finish this half of the rotation by casting Thunder III, which is essentially the single target and more potent version of Thunder IV.

Unlike the AoE rotation however, we will be ignoring all Thunder Cloud procs during single target rotations. You have more important spells to cast and precious little time to cast them without Thunder III hogging up your GCD.

Now we get to the bread and butter of BLM's single target rotation, the fire. This is obviously where a majority of our damage comes from, and it's only gotten better in Shadowbringers. If you're coming in from an AoE rotation and already have full Umbral Ice and Umbral Hearts, you'll start here.

Proceed by casting Fire III, this will remove all Umbral Ice and grant you full stacks of Umbral Fire, but will not consume an Umbral Heart. Now buff yourself by casting Leylines in a safe spot where you won't have to move for a bit to boost your casting speed.

Do not use Triplecast this early in the rotation. This is a common mistake new black mages make, throwing down their best cooldowns at once. The problem is, this makes absolutely no sense as the two buffs are completely counter productive and will be partially wasted.

If you have boosted casting speed, why would you need to instant cast? Not only are you wasting the improved casting speed granted by Leylines, you're wasting Triplecast for when you'll need it in crucial movement heavy parts of the fights.

After you've cast Leylines, stand in the circle it creates, and cast Fire IV three times. This consumes your Umbral Hearts, but does not refresh your Umbral Fire. If you don't cast something to keep it up, you'll risk losing your all too important Enochian and fall out of the rotation.

The quickest way to refresh Umbral Fire is by casting Fire (big surprise). If you get the Firestarter proc, you can ignore it or save it for if you need to quickly refresh your Umbral Fire if you've made a mistake.

Follow up by casting Fire IV three more times, then finish it off by casting Despair. This will consume your remaining MP and deal a huge amount of damage, similar to Flare, but it's a single target nuke. If you have a Polyglot, follow Despair by casting Xenoglossy, Despair's angry dad nuke. After this, it's pretty much rinse and repeat.

If at any point you have to move (and you will), you have multiple cooldowns to assist you and immediately resume casting. Swiftcast, Triplecast, Between the Lines, and Aetherial Manipulation will all help with this. As well, Mana Barrier should be used during phases of intense damage or when you have low HP.

GTA Online Peyote Plants Guide Fri, 08 Nov 2019 09:36:24 -0500 Sergey_3847

Diamond Casino and Resort update keeps delivering goods in GTA Online. This time players can turn into some of the weirdest animals by eating a new peyote plant. This guide will show you all 76 possible locations of peyote on the map.

The effect of the plant lasts until your character's death, so if you're careful enough, you can last as a shark or a bear  or any other animal for a very long time. If that is something you would like to try, then read on through.

All Peyote Plant Locations in GTA Online 

Click on the map to expand (credit: beeman999)

When you get bored of playing with your human character, you can take a trip to one of the spots indicated on the map above and eat a peyote plant. As a result, your character will transform into a random land or sea creature.

However, don't attempt at collecting all 76 peyote plants, since there is no reward. So it's just for fun.

How to Turn Into a Bigfoot

You can transform your character into a bigfoot by following these steps:

  1. Collect a peyote plant indicated by a blue dot in the center of the city
  2. Wait for the foggy weather
  3. Climb up a mountain
  4. Eat the blue peyote plant between 3 and 8 AM

If you manage to fulfill all these conditions, you will turn into a scary bigfoot. This skin will also last up to the moment of death. Then, it's back to normal again.

Also, transformed characters will be limited to walking on foot only, so if you want to drive a car, you have to get back into your human form.


These were all peyote plant locations in Diamond Casino and Resort update, and for more GTA Online guides, check out the list below:

How to Get the New Mounts in FFXIV 5.1 Wed, 30 Oct 2019 17:21:24 -0400 Yaneki

Final Fantasy XIV's new patch launched yesterday, and it included three new mounts for players to find and earn, each with their own unique challenges. Unlocking new mounts in FFXIV can be kind of a big deal, and these will take some hard work and dedication to get. You won't be soaring through Norvrandt's skies in style immediately.

Most of the new mounts listed below are unlocked through different means  some are easier than others. Each has its own semi-painful grind. However, if you're here for the Morbol mount featured on one of FFXIV's developer streams, that has not yet been released, so you won't find it here.

Forgiven Reticence

FFXIV 5.1 mount Forgiven Reticence

This is more or less the winged, Lion-esque Sin Eater from the game's opening cutscene. It happens to be the first boss in Mt. Gulg, although this version seems a bit tamer. Of the bunch, this mount is one of the more straightforward to get, but try not to laugh.

To start with, you'll need to earn 3,200 Sack of Nuts, a currency which is earned by participating in The Hunt for the Nutsy Clan and by killing Elite Marks in the Shadowbringers Expansion. Previous Hunts and Elite Marks from prior expansions will not award you with any Sack of Nuts, so stick to hunting in Norvrandt.

Once you have all 3,200 Nuts, you'll need to exchange them with a Nut Vendor, either of these will work:

  • Xylle at the Crystarium (9.4, 9.5)
  • Ilfroy in Eulmore (11.0, 10.8) 

Use them to buy the Forgiven Reticence Horn, which is then consumed to unlock the mount for your character.

Portly Porxie

FFXIV 5.1 mount Portly Porxie

Here's a mount that players have been clamoring over, and with good reason. Unfortunately, it will definitely take some time to unlock. In order to purchase the Portly Porxie, you'll have to start the new Pixie Beast Tribe Quests.

You'll first need to beat Titania in the Main Scenario Quests. Completing the quest called "The Wheel Turns." Afterward, you can speak with the Pink Pixie in the Crystarium (13.2, 15.3) and pick up the quest called "Manic Pixie Dream Realm."

You'll need to complete this quest in order to unlock reputation with the Pixie Beast Tribe. After that, you can start doing quests for them. Doing quests for them allows you to earn their new currency, Fae Fancies.

It takes a total of 18 Fae Fancies to purchase the Portly Porxie mount from the Pixie Vendor, located in Il Mheg (12.4, 32.9). You'll need to achieve the second-highest reputation rank for it to become available.

Shadow Gwiber

FFXIV 5.1 mount Shadow Gwiber

Throw together a dragon, a freaking dinosaur, and just the right amount of edge, and you've got this awesome mount. Acquiring it will take top-tier gear, skill, some friends, and a good amount of luck. That alone puts it out of reach for most players.

Shadow Gwiber is unlocked from a rare drop item, the Shadow Gwiber Trumpet, which has a chance to drop from the new Extreme Trial, The Minstrel's Balad: Hades's Elegy.

Speak to the Minstreling Wanderer, in The Crystarium (7.6, 12.5). Queue up, though you'll have to defeat both Hades and the other players' rolls if it drops.

Once you do, however, feel free to fly in style, gloating and making all the other players around you ache with rage and jealousy.

But Wait, There's More!

While you're at it, crafting materials also drop from Hades. They can be used to craft the new Hades Chocobo Barding. These are always styled after the boss. If that's the case, we're dealing with some seriously heavy-duty barding with lots of pointy sharp bits and detail.


That's all you need to know about how to get the new mounts in Final Fantasy XIV 5.1. See more of our FFXIV guides here, and stay tuned for more in the days to come! 

How to Get FFXIV 5.1's New Nier Raid Gear and What It Looks Like Tue, 29 Oct 2019 14:57:12 -0400 Yaneki

Looking to take a sneak peak that new Final Fantasy XIV Nier raid gear? We've got you covered.

One Reddit User managed to get ahead of the curve and throw up some renders of the new gear in question, and we're more than happy to throw that up here and show you how to find it. First, how to get these beauties.

Obtaining the NieR Raid Gear in FFXIV

In order to obtain any of these and potentially deck your character out as 2B as can be, you'll have to have to:

  • Complete the Shadowbringers main story quest if you haven't already
  • Complete the quest "Word about Komra"
  • Head over to Kholusia and have a chat with our not-so-new friends, the Dwarves
  • Find one Gossipy Dwarf at coordinates (X:12.9 Y:8.7), who should offer you the first Quest in the chain: "A Scandal in Komra"

Completing the Quest Chain from there will unlock the new FFXIV Nier raid, YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse. The gear drops in the YoRHA raid.

Anyway, let's take a look at the full array of items you can get from this raid and slap into some glamours.


Obviously, these are all inspired by Nier: Automata, and some seem to be variations of the same piece, which isn't uncommon for FFXIV's gear designs. Notably there are once again distinctly male and female gear versions, again, not uncommon in the game's design.

If I had to guess, I'd say the first and third images are healing and casting gear for males. Everything else is up in the air and beyond me at the moment, but we're working to keep you updated all today.

Worth noting especially is that a glamour set from the Raid, which gives you 2B's outfit, will also enhance your character's 'assets'. Seen below is the same character from a certain angle while wearing the gear in question.

How to Teleport in Minecraft Thu, 24 Oct 2019 09:35:12 -0400 Sergey_3847

The world of Minecraft is potentially limitless, which means that you can never explore it in its entirety. This also means that you will miss out on a huge chunk of its resources. However, there is one trick you can use to jump to any coordinates in a blink of an eye. We're here to help you learn how to teleport.

Below you will find instructions on teleportation for all versions of Minecraft, including cheats and commands.

How to Teleport in Minecraft Survival Mode

If you don't want to use cheats, you need to obtain an Ender Pearl to teleport in Minecraft. This item cannot be crafted, so you need to look for it either in Stronghold chests or by killing Endermen mobs.

We have guides on that here and here

When you have an Ender Pearl in your possession, you can throw it wherever you wish to teleport to, and then use one of the following actions:

  • Java Edition: Right-click.
  • Pocket Edition: Tap where Ender Pearl lands.
  • PS3/PS4: Press "L2" button.
  • Xbox 360/Xbox One: Press "LT" button.
  • Wii U/Switch: Press "ZL" button.

How to Teleport in Creative Mode

Method 1: For PC and Mobile

In Creative Mode you can use cheats, so make sure that they are activated in the game settings. This applies to Minecraft Java Edition, Bedrock, and Pocket Edition.

When your cheats are activated, you can teleport to any coordinates by following this procedure:

  1. Press "T" to open the console
  2. Type in "/tp x y z"
  3. Press Enter

The "x y z" values correspond to the coordinates of your choice. For example, if you want to teleport to coordinates 100, 75, -100, then type in "/tp 100 75 -100".

Method 2: For Consoles

Unfortunately, on console versions of Minecraft, you can't teleport to any coordinates. You can only teleport to another player in multiplayer mode.

Follow these steps, if you want to teleport to another player:

  1. Go to Game Options menu
  2. Select Host Priveleges option
  3. Press "B" on Xbox 360/Xbox One or "circle" on PS3/PS4
  4. Load the game
  5. Press "X" on Xbox 360/Xbox One or "PS" on PS3/PS4 
  6. Select Host Options
  7. Press Teleport to Player

Lastly, choose your friend's name in the list, and you will be immediately teleported to their coordinates.

GTA Online Tips Guide: Games Masters Explained, Money Exploits Fri, 16 Aug 2019 09:46:44 -0400 Sergey_3847

Before Diamond Casino and Resort, there was the Arena Wars update for GTA Online, which included one of the best adversary modes in the game: Games Masters.

This unique mode pits two teams of up to eight players against each other on the deadliest open space lanes ever. One of the teams gets to spectate the other one from the spectator's booth and try to prevent the team on the lane from collecting as many checkpoints as possible within three minutes.

When time is up, the teams change positions, and it begins all over again. This mode is a really tough one, but it also offers some incredible fun and some nice rewards. So, if you're having a hard time competing in Games Masters, then follow our guide below.

Three Maps: Apocalypse, Future Shock, Nightmare

You can start Games Masters mode by hosting Arena Wars from the Rockstar Created Jobs menu.

After you purchase the arena for in-game money, you will gain access to a garage with 10 exclusive vehicles, which can be used only or Arena Wars, and three new maps with different themes: Apocalypse, Future Shock, and Nightmare.

Each map has a unique obstacle design and weapons, but the damage is all the same.

  • Apocalypse is heavily influenced by the Mad Max franchise
  • Future Shock is all about science fiction 
  • Nightmare has lots of neon lights and glowing effects

If you start the Games Masters mode from your daily jobs menu, the game will automatically give you with a random map. You can also make quick and easy cash, but first, you need to know which vehicles are the best for this mode.

Best Vehicles for Games Masters

The 10 default vehicles you get in your garage are basic and unmodded versions that have no weapons or any attachments. This means that you will need to spend money in Arena workshop and seriously mod your vehicles if you want to win.

In any case, some vehicles are worth upgrading, while others should be left alone. Here are some of the best vehicles for the Games Masters mode:

  • Deathbike: This is a perfect choice for any arena. It's fast and agile, and it's much smaller than other vehicles, which is why it's so hard to hit it from the spectator's booth.

  • Sasquatch: If you want a big and flashy vehicle, then this monster truck is definitely a very popular choice.

  • Dominator: This is a standard vehicle with a tombstone on its back, which can be dropped off and disrupt other chasing vehicles behind you.

  • ZR380: Another standard vehicle with armored windows, which is great against any type of damage.

You can also unlock other vehicles by ranking up tiers:

  • Tier 25: Taxi
  • Tier 50: HVY Dozer
  • Tier 75: Clown Van
  • Tier 100: Trashmaster
  • Tier 200: HVY Barracks Semi
  • Tier 300: HVY Mixer
  • Tier 500: Space Docker
  • Tier 1000: Tractor

How to Win Fast and Make Money

If you're playing Games Masters outside of the daily jobs routine, then all your rewards will be unlocked at each new tier, and for most of the part, they will be random rewards.

However, if you want to make more money, then be sure to play Games Masters during your daily jobs. Then you can earn $8,000 in just a couple of minutes if you belong to the winning team. But even if you lose, you will still earn $4,000.

Collect the Checkpoints

Winning in arena races can be hard at first because you will not know the lanes and the locations of the checkpoints. But the more races you play, the better you will know how to orient on all three maps.

On the other hand, it doesn't matter how well you know the lanes because the enemy team will always find a way to disrupt your path with one of the available weapons.

In the end, you need to collect more flags than the enemy team, and then you can take your turn in the collector's booth.

Spectator's Booth

This part is just as important as the races themselves, and at times, it can turn the match-up in your favor.

Here, you have access to several types of weapons, such as turret and the battle drone. With these simple tools, you can force the enemy team to lose by blowing their vehicles and not letting them collect more flags than your team.

So use both of these opportunities to get your victory. This will take under 10 minutes total, and you will be able to raise your skill and sponsorship levels.


Lastly, you can ignore the spectator's booth opportunities and instead choose to play the Spin to Win wheel.

One spin of the wheel costs $5,000, but it also gives you the chance to increase your sponsorship level, which unlocks new random rewards random.

If these rewards are more important to you than money, then Spin to Win is available in the spectator's booth during races.


Now you can easily win at Games Masters in GTA Online. For more GTA Online guides, see the list below:

Best Properties to Buy in GTA Online Fri, 09 Aug 2019 10:53:40 -0400 Sergey_3847

At one point or another, every GTA Online player faces the same dilemma: where to invest their money to make even more money. The assortment of available options is huge and there are plenty of properties to choose from.

The best types of properties are obviously the ones that make you a lot of money without too much work. The less time you invest in these types of businesses and the more money you make is the optimal tactic.

Below, you will find a short list of properties that serve that purpose. Some of these properties are so profitable that you'll be able to make hundreds of millions of dollars in just a couple of in-game months.

MC Businesses

This type of property is available after purchasing a Motorcycle Clubhouse (MC) from the Maze Bank Foreclosures website. To operate on an illegal market, you also need to be the president of a Clubhouse, so keep that in mind

Eventually, you can buy forgery offices, counterfeit cash factories, weed farms, methamphetamine labs, and cocaine lockups from the Open Road website.

Two of the best MC properties are the cocaine lockup at Morningwood and the meth lab at El Burro Heights. Both of these properties will bring you millions of dollars in cash every day.


Another extremely profitable property in GTA Online is the underground bunker. It is where you can run illegal arms trafficking operations, which bring in millions of dollars in cash on a regular basis.

You do not need to be an MC president to buy a bunker. However, you need to either be the CEO of an organization or be a VIP member. 

Although you can only have one bunker at a time, you can purchase a bunker at the Maze Bank Foreclosures website. The two best bunkers are the Smoke Tree Road Bunker and Thomson Scrapyard at Grand Senora Desert.


Buying a nightclub is the best way to make passive income. First of all, it's a totally legal business and doesn't require much investment, and second, it requires absolutely no work outside of the actual purchase.

You can buy any club you want and simply let it bring in the cash. A nightclub will not be profitable from the very beginning, but it will begin to bring in cash after about a month, so be patient.

It is very important to find the right location for your club, however, and the two best nightclubs in GTA Online are Downtown Vinewood and Del Perro.

Vehicle Warehouses

If you're a new player looking to purchase an inexpensive property, then look no further than a vehicle warehouse. All you need to do is find cheap cars, mod them, and deliver them to the buyer.

Warehouses are also an excellent way to make money, especially if you like driving in GTA Online.

There are nine types of vehicle warehouses in the game, and you can buy any one of them. They are all pretty much the same and can fit up to 40 stolen cars each. Just don't buy the La Mesa warehouse, as it is located in a very dangerous area and is prone to gang attacks.


If you enjoyed making money with vehicle warehouses, then up your game and start using selling aircraft and delivering by purchasing a hangar.

One of the distinct features of buying a hangar is that it spawns certain types of aircraft depending on its location. Therefore, the best hangar in GTA Online right now is Fort Zancudo. It not only spawns great planes, but it also allows you to fly into the base without incurring a wanted level.

You can also customize aircraft to your liking and make your business grow on a daily basis.


These are the best properties to buy in GTA Online. For more GTA Online guides, see the list below:

Say Goodbye to DuckTales: Remastered On Digital Storefronts Tue, 06 Aug 2019 17:36:36 -0400 Joshua Broadwell

Capcom made a surprise announcement today about DuckTales: Remastered, saying the game will no longer be available on digital storefronts beginning August 8.

As a refresher, DuckTales: Remastered is currently available on the Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, Steam, and Xbox 360.

Until its removal, the game is on sale for up to 75% off.

The approximate times when the game will go offline for good are as follows:

  • Wii U – August 9, 4:59 p.m. PDT
  • PlayStation 3 – August 9, 8 a.m. PDT
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One (via Backwards Compatibility) – August 8, 5 p.m. PDT
  • Steam – 4:59 p.m. PDT (we're waiting to hear back from Capcom on the date for this one, but it should be either Aug. 8 or Aug. 9.)

Capcom emphasized the fact that DuckTales: Remastered will still be playable for those who have a physical copy and those who have already downloaded the title. If it's been removed from a user's system, it can also still be re-downloaded.

DuckTales: Remastered received mixed reviews when it launched back in 2013, with appreciation of its retro quirks largely depending on the individual playing it. Our own review noted how nostalgia can often skew how we remember games we played in the distant past, even if the gameplay itself still holds up.

Still, it's not altogether surprising the game, firmly anchored as it is in the previous generation, is bowing out from digital arenas. As we begin moving into the next generation with platforms like Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5 (or something), it's likely more games from that era will start disappearing from storefronts as well (although it could just, you know, stay on Steam with all of the other retro games...). 

Quickest Ways to Get Money in GTA Online: How to Make Cash Fast Tue, 06 Aug 2019 10:47:58 -0400 Sergey_3847

Getting started in GTA Online can be really difficult, but if you know how to get a lot of money really quickly, you can enjoy all the freedoms at your fingertips.

Certainly, new types of income appear with each new content update, and the last one, Diamond Casino and Resort, also offers a few unique ways of raking in huge amounts of money really fast.

If you want to know how to make quick money in GTA Online, including all the newest and well-established methods, then follow our guide below.

Time Trials

With the release of the new Diamond Casino and Resort update for GTA Online, Time Trials now pay twice as much, which means that you can easily make $100,000 in just a few minutes.

Of course, you need to be able to finish the trials on time, and in order to that, you need the fastest car possible, which may cost over $1 million.

But how can new players win and earn quick cash in Time Trials? Well, the answer is motorbikes. Akuma, one of the fastest motorbikes in the game, costs only $9,000. Buy that, and rake in the sweet dosh. 

Inside Track Betting

There are plenty of ways to make money inside the Diamond casino. But the most profitable and the quickest one is the horse race betting system called Inside Track.

You can easily exploit the system by always betting on the first horse, but with one condition. The second horse in the list must have odds of at least 5/1 or more. If the odds are 4/1 or 3/1, then you should exit the game and return to reset the odds.

This method should be successful almost every time, giving you at least $50,000 in just a couple of minutes.

Adversary Modes

The most profitable Adversary Mode is Slasher/Hunted mode, which can and should be played with a team.

One member of the team should be the Hunted and let the other players find and kill them as soon as possible. 

It is also important to complete several of these modes one after another, because the game will reward you with bonuses up to $50,000.

Client Jobs

The After Hours update introduced new client jobs that pay over $30,000 each, with high RP and bonuses.

But not all client jobs are equally profitable, and the only ones you should focus on are:

  • Robbery in Progress
  • Data Sweep
  • Targeted Data
  • Diamond Shopping

If you don't know how to do them effectively, you can find all the solutions in our GTA Online client jobs guide here.


Completing missions can generate some serious cash.

Lester Crest and Martin Madrazo have the most profitable missions. You can get invited by a high-level friend or random and get a ton of cash even as a low-level player.

Make sure your difficulty is set to Hard; all of your earnings will be 50% more profitable, which means more cash in less time. It is recommended to complete missions within a crew, since it also increases your profits.

Selling Cars

This method is really easy. All you have to do is steal a car and bring it to Los Santos Customs for sale.

Of course, don't just steal any car. Instead, look out for modded vehicles, such as Gang Tornado or Chrome Dubsta, which sell for about $40,000 a piece.

The best place to look for modded and expensive cars is Grove Street. However, remember that you can sell only one car a day — or 48-minutes of real-time.

Daily Objectives

This is one of the most obvious methods to make easy money in GTA Online. Unfortunately, many players avoid completing objectives, leaving money on the table

The best part about daily objectives is that they not only grant you quick cash every day, but they provide worthwhile bonuses.

If you complete daily objectives every day for a consecutive week, you'll be rewarded with a $100,000 bonus. If you do them for a month, you'll be rewared with a $500,000 bonus.

Car Races and Deathmatches

Obviously, winning races gives you more dosh than losing. But it is still important to complete races and deathmatches no matter your place, because if you quit, you will earn nothing. 

Even if you lose, you can earn $2,000, which is better than nothing for your time. 

Be sure to bet on players, too, to make additional cash. And, if you win the race and the bet, you will make twice as much.

Heist Jobs

Every time you start a new heist, you'll get a bonus of $100,000

But don't just join any heist job; look out for those that distribute all shares fairly.

For example, if you join a heist job that offers $500,000, but the host distributed his share as 70% and the rest to all those who joined, skip it. It's not worth the effort.

The lowest share percentage you should go for is 20%, and of course, if a heist job offers more than that, then it's a worthy deal.

Another important thing to remember is this: complete all heist jobs in the order the game offers them to you. If you start with Fleeca and finish with Pacific Bank, then the game will reward you with a bonus $ 1 million in cash.

VIP Jobs

As a player with VIP status, you can make a lot of cash from the VIP jobs menu. However, you can't become a VIP member from scratch: you need to have at least $50,000 on your account before applying for the VIP status at SecuroServ.

After you managed to secure VIP status in GTA Online, you can start making a lot of money really quickly by completing various SecuroServ missions.

Become a CEO

After you've made enough money as a VIP member, you can buy an office, which will automatically make you the CEO of your organization. This will allow you to buy and sell crates, and make easy money on the difference.

When you've chosen the location of your office, you can start buying warehouses with crates, which you can sell.

The system is rigged in such a way that it is better to sell more crates at once, as it will automatically raise their prices, which means more profit for you.

This is probably the slowest method of all on this list, but it gives you something else to do when you're out of ideas or have grown tired of all the quick ways of making money mentioned above.

The new Diamond Casino and Resort update for GTA Online is finally available to all players. Here's how to host casino missions in GTAO.

Simply follow our guide below, and learn how to start and host casino missions in GTA Online.

Step 1: Start Casino Missions

Before hosting any casino mission in the lobby, you first need to start new mission by following these steps:

  1. Open your mobile phone
  2. Go to Internet
  3. Select Diamond Casino and Resort
  4. Purchase one of the available penthouses

The cheapest penthouse costs $1,500,000, and it will work. After the purchase you will be contacted by Ms. Baker, who will prompt you to enter the Diamond Casino and start new missions at the lobby.

Step 2: Host Casino Missions

When you start your first casino mission you will notice that you join another player's lobby. But in order to progress through missions you need to become the host yourself.

Here's a solution on how to host casino missions for console players:

  1. When in the lobby quit GTA Online session
  2. Go back online and create an Invite Only session
  3. Enter the casino and go to the lobby
  4. Stand in front of it
  5. Double tap right on the D-Pad
  6. Hold down right on the second tap
  7. Repeat if needed

Here's a solution for PC players:

  1. Repeat the first four steps
  2. Press the "E" key
  3. Repeat if necessary

It can be hard to host a mission right away due to the servers overload, and many people trying to host missions at the same time. So just repeat these actions several times and you should become host pretty quickly.
