You guys liked fishing? I Leveled up to level 5 and I was bored to death. Mining on the other hand I loved.
I guess I'm really not the fishing type person. Neither in real life nor any game has anyone managed to make it interesting to me. Well, at least in FFXIV it doesn't take long to catch something.

There is something I don't understand, does the spot we fish in matter or just the bait ?

You already got a review copy? I just saw your preview and I'm baffled that the game is coming next month. I was planning to get this game with the SMTIV+FE bonus but I don'think I'll be able to finish SMTIV by then, maybe barely.
If by them I manage to finish SMTIV I think I'll just pick it up. There should be a time I can manage to clean my RPG backlog.

It feels so good when the only thing we have to worry about a good game coming west is what title they will use.

Holy shit... people are the WORST.
I'm doing under the armor as a healer and NOBODY touches the adds.
I keep running in circle every time because I have 4 skeletons and the caster on me because of healing aggro.
Nobody even tries to get them off...

I've never really played healer and this is not motivating me for it at all.

I have to say I understand exactly what you're saying. I'm playing a healer myself for the first time and man, there are some people that seem to not have a clue of what they should be doing. At least for me it has been 50/50 and fortunately all the times the tank knew what he should do.

I've heard there is one fight in particular where people have to actually work as a team, so probably after that we should have less people without a clue of what to do.

Who's on the PS3 version? A friend of mine has it and says targeting is kinda sketchy with the controller.. We still can't play together Cuz new toon creation is still locked: (

I've been playing a lot with a controller. Pretty much I use two computers to play the game, my desktop is the better one but I use the other one when I want to lay back, or even play it laying down.
I like a lot to use the controller to play when just killing mobs but like your friend said, when you actually want to target a person it get's a little complicated. So I'll probably use a controller when playing by myself and use the M/K when doing dungeons with other people, especially now that I'm running a Conjurer.

What your friend can do is plug a mouse on his PS3. I know it works because I tried in beta and it worked just like on PC.

Tonberry was actually the server I was thinking of creating a character on. Hadn't even done any research.

I tried Tonberry just now and it was full so I created on Ixion. Quite a lot of people on Gridania considering it should not be the most active time on the server.
I didn't talk to anyone as to check what language people should be talking at least it's smooth playtime.
52  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 26, 2013, 08:29:58 PM
From the little research I've done it seems Tonberry and Ixion are more populated with english speakers. Tonberry if anything may have a little more as it seems the Australian community is going mostly there.
Also, it should be pretty easy to log in, as the timezone is almost inverted for people in the US. From where I'm from it is exactly a 12 hours difference, so when they go to sleep it basically when I'm up, so the servers should have much less people when we from the west try to get in and it's going to be mostly populated by Japanese when we are asleep.

In the end, we get to play AND we don't stress their servers when they play, so it's not like we're ruining the game for them

I'm seriously considering playing at least for a while on a Japanese server. Not to bash or anything, quite the contrary. Since I have no real life friends playing this game and I play mostly solo I wonder why should I suffer so much when I want to play at night. Even here, which is a community I like a lot we are spread out across every server.

I heard the Ixion server has a decent amount of english speaking people so it shouldn't be hard to find some people to talk to. Hell, I might even take a chance and use my japanese, although I doubt it'll be of much use for the usual MMO terms, at least in the beginning.

If anyone else feels like having a 2nd character on a Japanese server we could try make it as a gather for us RPGFans.

Just picked up a 640 TI at Best Buy today since my GT 320 is dying on me. Here's hoping A) it fits, and B) it doesn't cause my computer to spaz out. Any advice? I usually buy all my computers pre-built and this is my very first time upgrading.

Besides all the good recommendations given, I have one because my cousin decided to buy a 660 and gave me his older 560Ti. I didn't have a single issue but he did. His computer became unstable some games exit for no apparent reason and pretty much everything was brand new. So the short answer was his "Surge protector". (Forgive me if the name isn't that one because I'm not sure how it's called in english, in the end I'll link a picture so you'll know what I mean). Long story short, he switched a regular one to a much better one and everything became normal, just like that, so Tenchi-no-Ryu, make sure your power supply of energy to the computer both "from the outlet"and "from inside the computer" is of good quality.


About the servers:

Leviathan - Tiffany Hwang
Leviathan - Cyril Elyon

Send me a tell if anyone's on there, running a LS with a few friends of mine.  Will be maining WHM, maybe SCH, and considering BLM and SMN.

It seems we can meet there! I was thinking of running a WTH Mage myself, but decided to try a pugilist in beta and ended up liking my Mi'qote so I'll be keeping her. Since I now plan on trying the class a little bit further we probably can play together until I go White Mage.

If I were you guys I wound't wait for the e-mail because it doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon.
On their twitter SE said we should just keep trying but they didn't say anything about sending an e-mail.
56  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 21, 2013, 01:26:35 PM
Hey guys, I managed to get everything worked finally. Someone on GameFaqs posted saying he was having the same problem and well, it worked for me.
Basically, I had received an e-mail with a europeean code, the one that starts with RAAE, and to register I needed the one with RAAU.

In short, all we need to do is go to preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com and keep trying with our 18 digit code and eventually it should work. Instead of an e-mail, you should be transferred to another page telling your code and the link to register. That's it.
After I read the instructions of the gamefaqs guy, it didn't take me more than 5 minutes until it worked.

So, if someone was still unsure if they should/can type in their code, it is working now. Hope this helps anyone here.
57  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 21, 2013, 08:45:12 AM
I managed to receive my code. I always got an error on the redeem site but suddenly the e-mail has been sent to me with a code. Although not everything is perfect as they say I got a code for a different region...
58  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 20, 2013, 11:42:29 PM
By seeing SE's FFXIV twitter it seems we should now be able to redeem our codes. However it is still slow as hell, and still giving errors.
At least they said they are adding bandwidth to it.

If anyone needs the url: http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/   I don't know for sure, but from what I've gathered it is different for EU players.
I still haven't been able to register my code properly but I'll keep trying.

If anyone here manages to do it, maybe we should share the experience.
59  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 20, 2013, 01:15:06 PM
I found this info regarding the pre-order codes.

In short, a person contacted SE about the site not properly working and all, and they gave him an answer telling we should wait for the e-mail, even though the site is up.
Also, they said even if we tried to redeem the code and receive an error, or some that tried to redeem PS3 and got it registered as PC to stay calm that it will be fixed as soon as we receive the e-mail.

Let's just hope it truly works.
60  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 19, 2013, 04:32:48 PM
Yes, it does.
I bought it myself this weekend as well. I think I might've spent a little too much on games since the steam sales, but this game may help me save some money until the end of the year promotions start.
