I feel dumb... been playing the beta, when it's available, for the past 2 weekends.... and still havent figured out how to chat with people.

Anybody able to help me with this?

Also, are we able to use a USB keyboard or PS3 chatpad with the game? I remember having a USB keyboard for FFXI on PS2, but sadly it broke. Not sure if I should get another one for FFXIV or not. My current comp wont run XIV, so am locked into PS3 for the time being.

Yes, you can use a USB keyboard with PS3.

And pretty much the same chat commands as ffxi, /p = party, etc.

If you don't have a keyboard or are too lazy to hook one up like me you can still chat. You have to [select] til your arrow is on the chat box and then hit Triangle to open up the onscreen keyboard..hit start when your done and then whatever then X (?) to enter it in the chatbox. It just takes an eternity to type that way.


Also, I played half the night last night and I feel behind everybody else but I finally got to do the tour of the starting zones. I got all teary eye'd when this was on the airship ride
YouTube Video Placeholder



Limsa Lominsa(?) is probably my favorite areas..I actually stopped and got a Marauder and leveled it to 10. All the outside zones near it are alot of fun. I did alot of exploring of the zones I could that weren't housing like..lvl30 monsters.

I got to Ul'da before I went to bed..the noob zones outside are obnoxious but the city itself has beautiful music wtf!

and I just learned that if I had spent the time leveling my 17ARC to 20 that there is an apparently a NPC that will automatically level your other jobs to 15...:( poopies

ah well..I'm having fun mixing other class abilities with my archer.

ok so..I just did another group mission thing and the first 2 in the main quest went smooth and easy and this last one with a pick up group was almost horrible..except we won. I don't know how that happened.

For one thing it seemed like me and the healer had the hate the majority of the time..I wish I could see a chat log of what skills people are using and what they are doing like in 11 >.> like if you screwed up people would be all like "umm..excuse me..what are you doing" but in this game I can't tell! Is there something I need to turn on?

also, is it possible to throw potions at your party members? if not..then is it possible for me to use my dinky cure spell on other pt members..keep in mind I'm an ARC and just have the cure subability..

Also, I kept winning lots on gear and it is really hard to stop what you're doing and equip gear when in a battlefield.

and I don't know how to put up a party flag T_T

and is it possible to /assist a mob..because when its a cluster**** of monsters its really hard to scroll to the one the party is attacking.

Also the battlefield barrier is stupid..I didn't know you could get locked out of the battle..I did the ARC hop backwards maneuver and then the wall came out and my party had to fight without me. It still gave me exp and credit though.

Click "battle" by the chat log,idk how to get to there on ps3 though.

There is a way to mark targets in order to attack

/mk attack1
/mk attack2
etc

Which makes it much easier.

As the tank (GLD) in the previous phase,I'd macro them to make it easier for others

I know this might be a silly question, but do we know if accounts can be used on either ps3 and/or pc?

because i was accepted to the ps3 beta and am playing on it atm. I will play on the pc when the game launches for real tho (i didnt apply to pc beta bc i didnt have a good comp at the time)

so will i be able to use my char from stage 4 on from ps3 on pc?

I know you can do it in ff11 but I just want to make sure lol.

You could drag your battle chatbox to be above your general chatbox on the PC... So I'm thinking there's something similar for the PS3. :x

Press Start and go to Party member search (think it's under the Social banner)- from there you can click on yourself and change your flag to Seeking, as well as make a search comment.

Official and beta forums are crap so going to just ask this here.
Has there been any recent word on race changing for 1.0 characters when ARR is released? It was pretty much confirmed before 1.0 even ended, but I haven't kept up with the producer letters and stuff recently.
Really hope they still plan on making that an option, I don't really want to be a Lalfell anymore.

You won't have your current progress, but if you saved the character data you can always make an exact clone when the game is actually released.

According to what I read here...

http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/topics/detail?id=758c9a3a9f3045637d0d36f1afa1dd51085f4be3

...it says...

Characters
FFXIV: ARR has been created with an entirely new graphics engine, and has also seen the addition of new races including Highlander females, Miqo'te males, and Roegadyn females. In light of these changes, players will be given the opportunity to change the appearance of Version 1.0 characters. All aspects can be altered, including race, gender, and name. Please note that changes can only be performed once.

...so it does seem that those variables can be changed upon the first time logging in to the new server (apparently whether that is in Phase 4 or live, dependent upon the user I would guess.)

Didn't even think about checking lodestone for some reason. That is awesome news though, sort of thought they may have changed their minds on the race and name change stuff.

Not really looking forward to syncing down to X level to progress through Mrd/Pgl/Thm/Lnc class quests just to get some abilities, but it's better than starting from nothing at least. Modified Lalafell walk and run just killed the race for me.

Level Sync seems to be highly beneficial actually and not scalefuckyou like XI. You can actually get alot more rewards when being level synced in fates that you could being the right level or just under or over. :<

But yea, it would suck to be synced down to 30 from 50 :<

I have been playing the beta on PS3 for 3 weeks now and I haven't seen a game this beautiful in my 31 years on this earth. Theres some things I would change but its good enough to keep me hooked for years. Cant wait for the game to come out and DEFINITELY cant wait for tnew expansions and updates for it!!!

Yeah, seems like best to get one job to 20s and unlock the grand company, once you sign up with one of them, every new fate you do will also give you a nice chunk of grand company points which is not a chump change over time when you are leveling other jobs in the process. Finally a worthy successor of FFXI, with a great new gameplay and actually OPTIONS to play how you want, when you want, and you can solo all the way to 50s should you choose. And still tons of grouping options. Endgame seems to be shaping up nicely from what was being hinted at, lots of "points" type gears you can purchase depending on which events you are doing. Phase 4 beta cannot come here any sooner...

You don't need to pre-order the game to participate in Open Beta, pre-orders are for Early Access play which would start after Phase 4's Open Beta and will require the key code you get when Pre-Ordering.

Nice, its the first dungeon they actually throw a few mechanics at ya, well the pirate one kind of does if you interact with the bubbling grates you can prevent add spawns.

Nope best you can do is level your CNJ further and equip higher level cure abilities to use on your other classes.

Also, I kept winning lots on gear and it is really hard to stop what you're doing and equip gear when in a battlefield.

Open up your character menu and go to the gear slot from which you got new gear for and select it and it'll automatically open up the appropriate tab of the armory.

Go into the social menu forget which tab in the social menu however you just select yourself on it and it'll show several options, don't remember what the other options were but one of them is to set your search info its here you can designate yourself looking for party and also make a search comment.

Quote:

Think you can use /assist <targetsnamehere> to target the same monster as your tank, also as some one else said you can also use markers.

Most mmo's do that for boss fights now a days, you can tell if the room is going to lock you out because there will be a glowing dark purple line going acrost the threshold.

With a conjurer in the group there shouldn't be any need for extra healing though, 1 healer is more than enough in the beta :0
