FFXIVDB.com also has a ton of new item info. Looks like we are getting AF+1 and Relic+1 stuff too.

Seeing the pet skillsets renews my interest in Arcanist (ACN?) and SMN.  I can see SCH being brought to a lot of end-game content, what with that skill reduction time ability.

But yeah, the Open beta wait is preeetty painful.

There's a rumor that the open beta will only be 3 days. Apparently the EU beta registration site stated that it would be back online August 17th. With head start being 7 days long, that's 3 days assuming no downtime.

Anyway, ARR Status has an estimate timer if your into gross speculation.

Time for a few derp questions: 

1. I've already deleted the client.  Was that a smart thing to do, or will Phase 4 use a totally different client? 

2.  Since I was in Phase 3, all I need to do is download the client and login, once available?

1: Pretty sure it's gonna be the same client, just patched. Psn users have no other way to get it otherwise.

2: Using your SE login data, yeah. Tenchi's probably gonna give a better answer, but I'm basing mine on PS3 info, and if PS3 users had to download a new client, we'd need new download codes and such,which sounds difficult to pull off.

Well, crap. I originally thought there would just be a patch but then I went to GameFAQ's and some people had said that Phase 4 will use another client.  I guess I'll be downloading this again while I sleep,lol.

1. Actually Phase 4 is a new client entirely. We were all told to delete the phase 3 client on PC and PS3. In fact your PSN accounts are automatically unlinked at the end of phase 3. New PSN codes will be forthcoming to download the new client when phase 4 starts.

2. Correct. Once you're in beta, you're in for all stages. If you're on PC the client downloader will be available shortly before Phase 4 starts. If you're on PS3, as soon as the client is on PSN they'll send you a code. Though since its open beta I don't see why it's just not a regular download.

I never got a notification regarding it. Matter of fact I signed in to it yesterday just to see if there was any news on the front page there (nothing new). I did get an email not to long ago about phase 4 starting soon and that I'd be getting a code soon, but I assumed that was from applying during phase 3 on their site. Odd shit, guess I'll leave the info to you from now on tenchi.

Yeah the code referred in the email is for the phase 4 beta client for PS3. It was further clarified on Twitter. You can go ahead and uninstall the client. If the benchmark is any indicator, they did a lot of changes to the engine so that's probably why they went with a whole new client rather than just a patch job.

So does this mean any saved Character creation data won't carry over to the next phase? Rats.

If you're talking about new characters as of Phase 3; then for the PS3 version, no. Phase 3 got wiped in its entirety so server side data is gone/reset. Legacy characters get their models back because that data just gets reset.

That's not the case for the PC version at all though because all character creation data (if you chose to save the template) is saved in Documents. This also allows you to tweak them in the new benchmark and save them for Phase 4. You will not, however, be able to modify legacy characters until Head Start/Retail. it is unknown if you can use saved character template from the benchmark to overwrite legacy character appearance at all.
