I'm confident that this will be the first MMO I play and enjoy since LOTRO.

Just finished the implemented portion of the main storyline for Phase 3. Concludes in a VERY different fight from ver. 1.0 story mission.




Totally amazing, cannot wait to take on the new Judges and higher level content.

Well, it's Beta phase 3, we'll have to start over in Phase 4 though I think that carries to the main game. So if you get in Phase 3 just go wherever you feel like. I'm on Leviathan, but made no attempt to contact any RPGFan people just yet.

Been giving it a try, liking it so far.  I just dont wanna do to much since itll be wiped, and redoing things bothers me after awhile, and I plan on making a couple alts.  Only bug ive had so far is whenever I start the game up, I get this weird resolution thing, so I just have to reapply my settings and tada.  Other than that I havn't run into anything strange, unless you count the names in Limsa Lominsa.  I think they just decided to hit random on a name generator :P

Actually, they have a list of naming convention rules for each race on the official game forums. They're a pretty interesting read, and they do tend to stick to them when naming the NPC's.

Phase 4 doesn't necessarily carry over:

* Circumstances may necessitate the deletion of character data during phase 4. In this event, character data will be transferred once more before the start of official service.

I'm playing on Ultros for retail since NeoGAF is headed there.  No offense to the RPGFan crew and some of the old guard, but I honestly never really played with any of you beyond moments here and there, and I have no attachment at all to my legacy character which didn't get very far in the first place.  Planning to play on a fresh server with an unestablished economy.

Huh, I may just make a character I don't necessarily plan to stick with and burn through another of those intro storylines then, and if wiped (and maybe even if not) go through the final one in the final release.

Surprisingly enough I've become addicted to mining and crafting in XIV. I'm almost to the point I'll be able to equip my level 20 character with armor I made myself. Really looking forward to the retail release :)

I'm legitimately sitting here going "man, I'd like to play some FFXIV." I stand 100% corrected by S-E. I'm pretty sure I wrote in this very thread a few months ago that there was almost no way they could get me interested in playing this game

my only gripe with phase 3 was the difficulty on a few quests. very maat'esque with little room for error. except that we are talking about low level content here. the one with the chocobo egg was obviously trying to teach you something. but the one with the gargoyle and the masked mage was infuriating. made more so by the fact its a 2 part battle.

If your using the armory system and setting the right abilities (like Protect and Cure) these fights aren't hard at all. As long as your letting the main NPC beat on the boss and you focus on the adds, its pretty simple. For the gargoyle/mage fight, you have to focus and kill the Gargoyle first because he has way less HP, but does much more damage. Also, you have to pay attention to his TP moves, and the mage's spells. The difficulty is appreciated, because as you've said, each fight is trying to teach you something. I think it's refreshing to actually have to learn strategy for fights instead of the 99% faceroll content in MMOs these days. Yes, if you just run in guns blazing, you will get your ass handed to you, but if you follow some pretty basic rules (don't stand in the big glowy circle thingy) they're not that challenging.
