Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

I just got out of Beta and it said something about  no disclosure on any proprietary content,so basically nothing except your thoughts or anything already posted by Square.

I can say they did improve the game a LOT  ,although i stayed away from fishing because i really did not like the initial release of it.

If i tried fishing and again hate it,i might not want to play the game lol,so i am avoiding it for now :P.

I might also say the system req's must have dropped right off because i am having about the same fps as i get in EQ2 and FFXIV looks  better.I get around 30 fps but my settings are decently high and my machine is sort of outdated.I only have an 8800 gpu and a slowish 5200 AMD chip.SO i would say just about anyone could play this game.I tried to mess with the settings but they didn't seem to do very much to the FPS so not sure if a system weaker than mine would be playable.I will also note that going under 30 fps in most  every game is automatic freak out time,in FFXIV you can drop below 30 and still be less noticeable,all you get is a bit of head spin from the eye strain lol.

Classes i leveld:

lvl 15 archer
lvl 10 mage
lvl 12 pugilist
lvl 5 gladiator
lvl 5 lancer
lvl 5 marauder

all great fun to play, unique feel to each diciples of war !!!

Hand jobs: no you perverts not that kind of hand jobs ^^

weaver
carpenter
botanist
leatherworker

crafting is so well designed in FF, i think its safe to say the best in any mmo i have ever played.
minor annoyance is that as you begin you need to click and make each item manualy and that can take a ridicuous amount of time :P
Other than that minor annoyance its perfectly done.


The world: and details in FF are the best i have ever seen.
Realy with max graphics and detail i was blown away....speechless when the night falls and you look up to the heavens, wich also moves !!!
This realy is a next gen engine that makes use of DX 11.1
I was most impressed in the forests area's it has such an organic feel to the suroundings.
Sometimes i just stopped and looked around to admire the atmosphere and details.


Combat: up to level 15 no problemo with anything, then i got a archers lefel 15 quest......


SPOILER DONT READ IF YOU HAVENT REACHED LEVEL 15 ON YOU ARCHER AND DONT WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So i accepted the archer level 15 quest and headed out upon reaching my destination i was met with my fellow archer guild npc's.
We ambushed a few strange enemy's and killed them all, including the their boss.

Once we won i was left behind and a wizard revealed himself...
He summoned a Demon of the underworld to finish me off.

At this point i was trying to kill the demon + wizard but that dint go well -_-
After a few more try's i bought some potions that remove poison as my health kept dropping by the poison spell he casted.

It seems i hit a brick wall, potion dint work and i was killed a few more times and then........the beta ended !!!!!!

END OF SPOILER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So far i was having a blast dint encounter 1 bugg or disconnection.
had a solid 60 fps whole weekend.
never ever i have been in a beta where evrything went so smooth......


What i like to add is the chat in Final Fantasy ARR.
Normaly you see the herp derp villegers spamming local with useless shit and trolling or whatever.
Not in FF !

I played on 3 diffrent servers 2 EU and 1 japanese and each server there where no trolls or flameing or hating or anything what you normaly would expect.
People where helpfull polite easy going !!
Even on the japanese server i askt questions in english and got nice and usefull reply's back !
Even had a conversation with some dude about our dutch kickboxers and how they dont understand why we (breed such great champions) :) !!!


All in all this beta has left a rock solid impresion with me, i have been a whining bitch for the last years as each mmo seemed to missed the point of mmo's.
Making friends and having fun.
Square Enix seem to have hit Gold with this reincarnation of FF XIV.

The people who where in previous beta's dint lie when they said you would be suprised how good FF XIV is !!!

Its funny, I had a couple questions written up but now that I got invited to beta I could just find out myself soon enough... BUT ... I guess ill ask anyway. :P

They may be public/common knowledge already but I havent really been reading every single bit of info I could find and when I do, im not sure if its info from v1.0 (which I never played) or not.

Anyway...

1) Crafting classes. Is there a limit on number of crafting classes I can take per toon? Or can I really (eventually) be a one man, fully self-reliant, manufacturing machine? On a related note ... since they're treated as classes am I to assume they take just as long to level up? The only difference being to gain XP from grinding crafting items rather than killing mobs, quests, dungeons, etc?

2)Jobs. Do they still work like 1.0 where if I want a Monk I HAVE to level 2 other classes to a certain level (30 and 15) before I can be one? Also, once I unlock the Monk job, do I start at level 1 again? If so do I have to basically return to the lowbie areas and start from scratch or will I still have the ability to hold my own and continue the content from where I was at when I unlocked the Job?

3) Specs. Havent heard anything about this so Im starting to think they just dont have them but... do they? Do classes/jobs have further customization options that'll "differentiate" the player from another of the same class/job? i.e. Talent points like WoW or Rift or maybe more like the Stigma abilities in Aion (using materia like we did in FFVII *crosses fingers*).

OK in ARR you can play ANYTHING and EVERYTHING on one Character ( we don't call them toons :p ) So no there is no limit to the crafting class you can play them all . Second part of your question is yes. You level crafting by crafting

Question 2 first part yes . Second part no your Monk will be Level 30 .

Question 3 .

Every job you can use abilities from other jobs example You can Level Conj to 12 and learn cure . Then level Lancer to 12 and add Cure to your abilities because you  learned it from Conj . But Classes have there own unique set of abilities that do not cross over to other classes or jobs . You get points to add to your Chrs. Point you can adjust for STR,DEX,VIT so on and so on . As for the Materia you can add it to your armor and weapons .

SPOILER

On my level 15 Thaumaturge I must have tried this quest about 5-6 times, it all depended on luck, if you are lucky and timed the potion right the demon wouldn't fire off another poison while the potion was on CD, sadly most of the time luck was not on my side and another poison hit would happen before the potion was off CD. I ended up running myself to Gridania and leveling up Conjurer just enough to unlock Cure, once I had that i could cure myself through the poison the second time it hit. Lots of complaints about this quest on the forums.

I played archer to 15, and also leather worker to 11 and botanist to 5. I cannot access the beta forum, after logging in the page would remain white for 1-2 minutes then I get these Japanase message: ??????????????????????????????????????????????. Clicking anything else will just prompt me to login again. Is this a known bug?

Combat is okay, I only wish I have dodge for those pesky ranged mobs (kiting melee mobs works fine). World is beautiful, music is great, questing is completely standard. I'm not overly excited by the combat classes, but they are not bad either.

Crafting is very interesting. But it needs some usability improvements here and there. Maybe I just didn't realize that these things are already possible, in which case I would be grateful if someone can highlight them to me.

  • Crafting materials need their own bag, or at least the ability to sort automatically into various bags. I had a hard time differentiating the gears I just crafted from the mats.
  • Buying supplies needs a buy all option, so I can just specify all the quantities I want and click once instead of having to confirm after each item (which is made more irritating than it needs to be because I can't seem to do it by pressing Enter key).
  • After exceeding a certain level, they should allow a mass-production option for simpler recipes, perhaps with no chance of failure but also no chance of HQ or bonus exp. I don't want to spend all that time crafting the simplest material one by one just because a higher level recipe needs them.
So far, I get to level 11 solely by clearing the recipes exactly once each (except for the material processing ones). Can you max the crafting professions simply by spending time and money in a workshop, or is that only for the lower levels?

The gathering classes are my biggest gripes. You can only start to get them after leveling the main class to 10, which means you have to spend the time backtracking to earlier areas after getting the class. The exp you get from each tree is pathetic, and finding trees to log is not fun either. You can switch easily between the gathering and combat class, but all your abilities are on extended cooldowns after a change, making gathering as you explore a major pain as well. I gave up after level 5. How are you guys leveling the gathering classes? Are you supposed to funnel your quest exp to these classes or something?

 

Edit: hm...cannot post japanese characters here? Anyway, google translate of the message is "We were unable to verify the identity of the environment and authentication. Excuse me, but please try the login again."

Because they are CHARACTERS or CHARS if you have to abbreviate, not cartoons in WoW.  Some people will ream your ass for saying toon... of course you can then just troll them by continuing to say it as many do, lol.

 

In my opinion toon just sounds insulting, like the avatar on Wii/Xbox you spent only 15 seconds creating to play bowling.  I don't remember anyone ever calling their RPG characters toons before WoW, you kinda revered them because RPG players generally put so much work into them to make them a "unique" character.

Not that I've seen, the forums were having problems after phase 3 opened though, and the invites went out so you might just try again.  They were swamped and really slow for a while, then they instituted new rules (hopefully temporary) like one post per 15 minutes, 750 words per post max, and 20 posts a day max.

 

If you log into the game/SE account management page fine then you should be able to log into beta forums as it is the same system.  Might want to contact support (I assume you can't post on lodestone forums?).

Didn't know about lodestone. I googled it and tried to log in, and at least got a more descriptive error message:



Since the valid character data is not present on your Square Enix Account, you are not allowed to log in to the forums.

Even if the monthly fee is paid and a valid content ID is available, a valid character data needs to be present.
Once the character is created, you will be eligible to log in to the forums. However, it may take some time until the character data is reflected to the system.


So I suppose it is just a case of the system being slow in transferring the character data? I guess I'll try again next week first before bugging support.

No lots of people can't use the lodestone if they didn't play 1.x towards the end, but that shouldn't affect your beta.  That message is different.  I was just thinking you could post there and get help easier.  I'd contact support.  I'm sure you googled your question but some solutions I found were:

I know what's the problem. Don't use Square ID as your email. Just your account name.

Hmm... at launch?

You sure about that?

I recall them saying DX11 support and PS4 would both roll out within a year after release.

It will not be at launch, but it will come out probably before the PS4 version (since they have to develop the DX11 client to port it to the PS4 anyways).  The PS4 version is slated for "early 2014.  I was a little worried when they said they would release it later, but that it would be a priority until they announced for PS4.  A lot of game companies have promised DX11 clients and either never delivered or taken wayyyy to long for it,

 

Since the game is coming to PS4 no matter what happens I believe we will get our directx 11 client soon.  One thing I especially like about how they are developing this game is that the PC client is not a port from console and they assure us it will continue to be graphically updated as time goes on unlike XI because Yoshida believes that superior graphics are a trademark of the FF series and wants to make sure this game delivers on that front.

Does anyone here think 1.0 looked better, or maybe these screenshots don't do the game justice.  The look was never the problem with the original.

You're right it was just the performance, gameplay, copy+pasted maps, poor lighting, lack of large scale content because only so many characters could be shown on screen at once due to engine limitations, etc. that made "the look" possible.

 

I liked the look of 1.0, but it wasn't worth it.  Also we are getting a DX11 client with higher res textures so people can run an MMO at that level of quality will get the option soon enough.  I think other than some textures though the graphics are already superior with everything turned to max.  They need to work on some textures, and the textures we have are definitely lower res than we were before (we'll get higher res texture packs in the DX11 client).  But the lighting engine in ARR is so much better that you can't really say 1.0 was graphically superior.

 

Also a lot of people who played 1.0 had to use the SNES graphics options (I'm not even using a hyperbole here, they were that awful) in order to get the game even running at enough FPS to play properly so for them this is DEFINITELY looking better.
