So, what server did people end up on? I know that's been asked a bunch, just not seeing responses.

While I have been in the beta from day one I have never spent more than 15min in it until I finally jump into the latest round of Beta this weekend past. I must say I am very impressed with the rework they have done to this game. Its sad they had to release such a sub par game first but this is what I was hoping for last time.
This time around I will be playing this game and It may just take me from WoW like it should have done the first time.

Heck I have a friend who does not touch MMO's at all who is planning on buying this game after getting into the Beta.

Anyone got any good site links covering the game, I don't want to roll something stupid and screw everything up from the start.

Looking at playing a blacksmith/disciple of the hand but stuck on race to play etc.

If you're talking Class race combos then there are optimal choices but they only effect your stats by a few points and can really be ignored unless you're going hardcore min-max. Most of that will be the choice of point allocation as you level. Your stats are generally pretty obvious as long as you take a moment to mouse over then and read what they do. There are 2-3 main stats for each class.

With the revamp, all the Disiples of the Hand/Land are purely crafting/Gathering classes. While they do level and gain skills etc they only effect crafting and cannot be used in combat and cannot be taken from level 1, you need to learn them as a secondary around level 10.
To play the game as normal you will have to pick a Disiple of War or Magic and level like any other MMO.

I'm having a very hard time getting back into wow for the latest patch. Tons of things I want to check out in it, but FFXIV is totally owning me right now.

I have decided that when my salary comes on monday I am going to try FFXIV:ARR out...


Now, should I go melee or caster first? Hmm...

Anyone have any links to some gameplay vids for the classes? Youtube has given me almost nothing...
