I've heard some talk that there will not be a character wipe after open beta but does anyone know if this is confirmed or not?  Usually it's only f2p games that keep ob characters into release but that would be cool if there isn't a wipe.

It's been confirmed. I'll try to find it for you, but I may just get irritated and do something else instead. 

 

They won't wipe unless they absolutely have to.

well i think there will not realy be a open beta same as the first version, the next stage there will be more players invited just before the release but a open beta like other mmos, nope

 

btw ne1 got a idea when they r going to put the summoner in i reinstalled the game specialy for that and nothing .....

Hey thanks for posting this.  Kind of ambiguous, there will be no character wipe, unless there needs to be a character wipe.  :/

I thought what I'd do is I'd pretend I was one of those Deaf-mutes.

Everyone who bought the game already can play in phase 3, that was already a thing.

Phase 4 Open beta will be an open beta to try out and test the game for everyone.

And I'm not going to tell you about summoner, everyone will be playing it already as it is :-p

Its that way because this was just after a scandal with Neverwinter where a lot of people got away with a huge exploit and they refused to wipe the server.

So Yoshi P was answering in the only real way he could, essentially if there is a game breaking exploit discovered then they will wipe.  Which was the right call, sadly Perfect World / Cryptic didn't wipe and tragedy happened.

Trust me, if a game breaking exploit occurs, you'll be glad they wiped. Look at Neverwinter...

Never trust anyone that opens up with "trust me".

...they already stated open beta for phase 4 in the next few weeks, and the rest of the new content like the summoner and more zones at launch, (thats after august 27 in case you cant figure it out)

Yeah that makes sense I suppose - I actually wasn't super familiar with what happened with Neverwinter.

Yes open beta will be full wipe and launch will be full wipe untill early acces.
Thats why i dont play anymore beta's and open beta's of FF ARR.
Dont wanne get burned out before the game releases and i dont wanne know how the story unfolds yet before launch.

Game is super polished and its tenfold better then most other mmo's i played in closed beta.

once phase 4 starts (open beta) they aren't wiping ANY data. All characters will be carried over into release.

What he says is true Phase 4 characters will carry over into the final product. Also are the upping the level cap in Phase 4?
