Y'know, I've always wondered when people started turning into teapots as opposed to just saying "Drat!" or whatever.

It's pretty fail though.

Why they don't just let us sign up and then email us once its open I dont know.

Better that than having 300,000,000 people spamming their site seeing if its ready yet.

Well, after occasionally checking the site to encounter either the server busy message or the temporarily disabled message, it just worked.

"Your application to the FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test has been accepted.
Please read through the e-mail we have sent to your Square Enix account's registered e-mail address. "

So now may be the time if you're still interested.

Just grabbed one. I'll see if I can get it running tonight. Thal, how long does the installer take to get the game running?

>< well..might be a few hours ... i had it partly downloaded for beta 3 then i patched it for open beta. Download it while you are school or work so you don't just wait in anticipation.

Oh make sure you turn off Occulor Oclusion or whatever that setting is called, even the super hard core machines can't handle that and it doesn't give much graphical benefit, but it will make your game chug.

P.S. Best to play with a gamepad or PS3 controller hooked up to your comp. if not use your wsda keys to move and your mouse to move the camera.

Right on, nbd. I'll hook one of my ps3 controllers up and give it a go whenever it gets done. I wanted to get my priest into an iCC tonight anyway, so I'm in no hurry ;)

Holy pictures mel!

Can someone explain how the "classes" work in FF? I've read you can swap between jobs easily enough, it's dependent on what weapon you're wielding, right? What exactly are the different jobs and what, if any, are their analogues in wow?

Shit, guys. What server should I pick? I'm just going to get my first character up and running on Rabanastre, but if there's a big meeting of Maintankadins I'll be glad to make a new character on whatever world. Let me know!

Check out www.thenakamals.com

May not necessarily all be in the same shell, but would like to populate a server with as many good players as possible. We have a fairly sizable group from tankspot on our boards as well.

Eeexcellent. I'm still deciding whether I'm going to invest some time in this game, but things are looking up. I'll try to find you guys when I make a new character. Human Lancer, I'm thinking.

edit: umm... searching the site for what world you're in. Haven't found it yet.

I don't know what it is but it makes me want to punch babies.

Hoping to get a new FFXIV site up and running soon. Aergis has been hard at work making it. I've also been writing a few guides to post when we launch it ^^ :D

I've named my Toons:

Danika Pendragon

and

Could this beta client download any slower...

Feels like I might have it completed around about the time they bring out the first expansion.

Yeah, that's been a common complaint. The client is supposed to use UPnP to open the needed ports automatically, but depending on your router/OS (Windows XP vs Vista/7) you may have better luck manually forwarding the port to your PC, usually this is 55296. You can find your exact port by opening the FFXIV Config tool and going to the General section, the network tab will show the port it is trying to use.

Another note for those running Microsoft Security Essentials, it will detect a virus as part of the install (DOS/SSR.gen) and the install is very unhappy with that. Just turning off real time protection is not reported as fixing the issue either, I got around it by killing the msseces.exe process through task manager before running the install.

I know no one else playing the game, so I chose Mysidia(?) server last night and ran around for a bit, that's about it so far!

I just told MSE to ignore the ffxiv directory and a restart got things back on track.

I'm enjoying this game. I might be able to get into it if I were able to break into the high levels, but I never really liked XI's quest/mission format and the overall slower pace of the game. XIV is a little (okay, infinitely) faster paced, so I'm liking that.

Anyone know what to do once you finish the opening quest chain? They sort of gave me 10000 Gil and a pat on the back and I don't know what to do now. I've finished all the guildleves that require killing things. Do I just grind to 10 and go to the new outpost?

Try and join friends or people who need help doing quest leves party style, you still get exp even if you don't have the leave, just for helping. Also you can try messing around doing crafts of the land or hand, make some monies.

So all I've got to do is buy the primary "weapon" for a crafting class and equip it? Do I have to buy the secondary ones?

Also, is it possible to join a guild (smith's, armorer's, etc) at low levels, or are there some pre-requisites?

Not sure on how to join the crafting guild I think you just buy the weapon for the guild equip it then go talk to them. Anyway, ya just buy the weapons for the Land, you might want to buy the secondary too cuz there are special nodes that require them for you to harvest from them.
