I feel like such a fool.  I forgot to rest at an inn to get my rested XP.  I'm LVL 20 but would I have gained a LVL from this?  I went to sleep around 630am and where they extended the beta, messed me up.  Oh well, I can earn the XP back in FATE events.

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.

Ignoring the fact that they're completely unprepared with the website despite having way more time to work on it (JP players had their page up almost two weeks ago), if the website doesn't work properly, TAKE IT DOWN AND LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THE PAGE INFORMING PLAYERS WHEN IT WILL BE READY.  Seriously, is this fucking amateur hour?  Why would you leave the page up if it's not working as intended?  The average customer doesn't read Reddit or Twitter.

The 3102 error was understandable, even if their communication was awful.  This is just flat out stupid.

Maybe the employees have gone delirious from all the overtime they pumped into this launch.

You know, I genuinely wouldn't be surprised about that.

They changed the requirements up a bit since Phase 3.
To be a Black Mage you need Thaumaturge at 30 and Arcanist at 15.
To be a Summoner you need Arcanist at 30 and I believe Thaumaturge at 15.
White Mage is Conjurer 30, Arcanist 15.

That's news to me.

Hopefully that means they're reserving CNJ/THM for Red Mage.

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.

Has there ever been a launch of a hyped up MMO that didn't have a debacle?  Seems like they all fuck up somehow...

What's exactly the registration deal for Legacy players? I haven't gotten an email or anything about it.

I am still waiting for my code.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Nothing, the system has you flagged for Legacy, just update the open beta client when EA goes live. You don't need to do anything.
