On the plus side, I think I've settled on a character model. I've probably made and saved 15 or so.

Zam server is Ultros, but since it is a potentially heavily trafficked server, my friends and I are back to hiding in Adamantoise again. >_> (We are such turtles...)

Gilgamesh for me, my rl friends, and most of BG. Although sadly an ill timed camping trip will probably prevent me from playing phase 4.

How do the PS3 users get the P4 beta?

Also, because I saw this online on a newbie tips thread and thought it was worth sharing ASAP, rest exp is percentage based.

If you have 1 level of rest exp, that's 1 level, period. If you use it taking a class from 1 to 2 you just completely wasted it.

It's a great system when you consider the fact that all your classes will be different levels, so this is always useful relative to what you're doing. But you have to be careful to actually use it on the proper job.

Also, cities are not sanctuaries. Rooms in Inns, major quest hubs, and possibly player houses are.

Also, also, player housing is sort of in P4.

I was. When I tried to update the PS3 client I already have, it said it couldn't verify the version and forced me to exit. So I figure we have to download a new client using a P4 code?

[EDIT]

I got the email announcing P4 for the PC. So worst case scenario, I just play there in the meantime. Still annoying...

Nope, just a link to the PC client.

I'm downloading that now - my login alone was sufficient to bypass the code part. But I have no clue how to access the P4 client on the PS3.

I still haven't gotten my early access code either. Smiley: glare

[EDIT]

The annoying part is that this is supposed to be open beta. Why the hell are they gating access to the client in the first place? It's not like this will be the launch client.

And why do I need to use a code, rather than them just checking against my PSN address (which has to be linked to my account anyway)?

Just checked the email. When you get the PS3 code you enter it in the account management section in the PS3. From there you'll be given instructions to download the client.

And I believe this is the launch client, which is why it's not being freely distributed.

Process to download the P3 client was the same as before on the PC, though, from what I can remember.

And it's still an open beta, no? You just need an SE account to access the PC client, from what I understand.

Also, I'm pretty sure there's just some elaborate prank being played on me. Called gamestop 2 weeks ago, they promised an early access key within a few days, nothing. I call them and wait 30 minutes... they hang up on me. I call back, and it's 15 minutes later, and I'm still on hold. I'm going to see if I can complain about this in a few more threads.

After telling the guy who finally answered about having already called and still not receiving my code, he just gave me one over the phone, no questions asked. Didn't even ask who I was or for purchase confirmation. Smiley: lol

But yeah, barring some kind of exclusive pre-order bonus I really want, I won't be bothering with Gamestop pre-orders again. I'd only done one before, for Skyrim. And that was fine. Less efficient than I would have liked for the midnight pickup, but fine.

But anything that's going to involve digital access codes that Gamestop is supposed to distribute? Lol, no.

Played for about 45 mins this morning, but I have to start working soon. Made an Arcanist. Didn't actually get to any combat.

So far, I don't quite understand Arcanist. They don't have the debuffing power I expected, have nearly no buffs, have a heal and a rez, and are otherwise unaspected damage.

I don't see them putting out the kind of damage that would really make sense to label them damage dealers. But I also don't see them having sufficient healing capability (basically one 400 potency healing spell and a 90s cd shield) to act as healers. I think the point of the class is their versatility. Unaspected damage, some solid debuffs (Disease - causes heavy and cuts healing potential; at high levels, blind), and the ability to switch their pet between a damaging caster (lower damage in general, but obviously it supplements the Summoner) or a Tank. Dunno if there's a third?

I love games with Support classes. I'm just not sure how that's meant to work with the Duty Finder. I assume they're just meant to replace a DD? In FFXI, Bards could replace any role, depending on your party makeup and skill levels.



Also, some fog rolled in while I was in LL. Was pretty cool.

How long until you're due in? I feel like the client is actually shockingly small.

Yeah, I didn't actually take the time to really design my character though.

Well, I took the time to create A character, but then the server freaked out when I tried to actually register it. Had to restart the client, and then just loaded up some random Lalafel I made in the benchmark.

I still can't decide on my race. It's Hyur or Lalafell. Lalafell have the advantage of getting to feel like they run super fast, and (when playing as an Arcanist) they get to summon things much larger than them. But Hyur get larger pieces of armor, which makes getting new gear more exciting, since you actually see the change.

Also, friendly reminder that choosing "Fortune" gets you a +8 CP ring that you can apparently send to another character, so you can equip two, which is a big boost to your crafting capabilities.

I have a Hyur Midlander I made on my benchmark that I'll be using. It ended up being between Hyur and Miqo'te, but with that survey on reddit showing the massive amount of catpeople, I went with Hyur. I really do like the Elezen, but in the end, they're just too tall for my liking.

Right?

I feel like TOR is the only MMO (and hell, one of the few RPGs in general) that actually gives the option for a decent full beard.

Everyone else seems to offer only some combination of douchebag beard, neck beard, and wizened old man who lives in the hills.

Yet every game includes Mustaches. NO ONE LIKES MUSTACHES.

[EDIT]

Relevant.

SE's statement on the limited options was specifically so that they could reduce the load on lower end systems, as part of their bid to make the game more accessible. So you take the bad with the good, I guess.

I still want just one decent beard option. ONE. It's not too much to ask.

Seems like instead of limiting options, they could have grouped them. And in the graphics and details settings of the game, the lower the details, the higher up the grouping trees things became. High detail = everything is divided out, lots of differences, etc. Low detail = move up the trees, items are grouped together under one generic lump, etc. The only time someone on a low spec system see the true detail would be during character creation, or on their own character.

I'm guessing it has to do with the diversity of systems, and the diversity of options players care about.

Some people are obsessed with shadows. It's not that I don't understand why they're really nice to have, but they're the first thing I turn off when trying to improve my performance.

Other people don't give a crap about foliage, but demand nice trees. I'm way more likely to completely disable grass for nice trees than I am to get half-assed grass and trees.

Or maybe people rarely notice trees, but they notice having a ton of grasses and plants and flowers around them.

Plus, each of these needs a different rendering point. A tree popping into existence is much more jarring than a flower. And seeing no trees on the horizon is far more problematic than no bushes, etc.

Plus, it requires a lot more work to group every single one of those objects.

Yeah, I usually like to be able to have my character have a decent shadow, and then blob shadows for everything else. Or blob shadows for everything including my character. It doesn't break my immersion.
