I'll be on Leviathan.

Looks like we're all over the place.
Who's even on Leviathan? Hyperion's set to get many of the RPGFan people, Ultros has Parn, Agent D, and Neogaf people if that's relevant to you, and Leviathan... has nostalgia for FFXI RPGFan days? Maybe? I have to assume you have friends there.

Not that you're grossly limited in where you can have characters though so I guess you can plant yourself on multiple servers and see what takes hold I guess.

Yeah, some friends.  They wanted to go to Gilgamesh, but given the crowd that's going there, I had to fight tooth and nail to stop them.  We wanted to avoid legacy servers.

How bad IS the crowd on Legacy servers? I see that brought up but I do wonder just how bad it can get.

For what it's worth, Ultros is not legacy.

I just created on Ultros, that's where the majority is for now I guess.

Don't understand where all the legacy server hate is coming from. Other than the markets (which are still pretty barren) what's the issue?

Your guess is as good as mine. As a legacy player I *want* new players on the server. I've seen more 1.0 players offering raises and advice than anything. Just because a bunch of asshats want to forum troll their e-peen doesn't make it true for the vast majority of the players. It's all new to ALL of us. We have to earn all our job abilities and unlock game aspects like guildleves just like fresh servers.

I've nothing against Legacy players or servers, I just prefer to start with everyone fresh.  Just a preference.

I'm actually having fun starting a new character on Hyperion. I've had a few things I couldn't figure out (how to move chatbox, how I accidentally hid my exp bar) and have had nothing but helpful answers and friendly responses. As Tenchu says, the game is pretty new to everyone it was so vastly changed. That was actually the reason I said hell with it and started one of my characters from scratch.

I played phase 3 on Ultros so I'm kind of thinking about playing there but I'd like to know where most of us from RPGFan are.
It seems most of us are spreading among Ultros, Leviathan, Cactuar and Hyperion.

Good deal! I can understand the appeal. A fresh server is something you only get to experience once in a lifetime.

Plus I guess you could rush through a storyline there, then restart on Hyperion to play with RPGFan people. Which actually looks like an idea that isn't so bad given you're supposed to be able to level up pretty fast.

Having played a lot today, I've got some noob questions:
- The stat points you get to assign, there's a way to reset those if I fuck up my char?
- Tanking classes are? (Maurauder & Gladiator ?)
