Yeah I may have to level some other jobs or something Im stuck now I have 2 quests open My Class quest and my storyline quests, Pug class quest has some lalafell monk tanking most of the mobs and healing you but her heals seem to be a tad slow and I keep dying, same with the SL quest. So my choices are either A) Lvl a New class for the abilities and hope they help B) run around and do fates for the entire lvl/2 levels (The quests both sync to 17, Im 15) C) Grind mobs/dungeons

I think Im going to take the chocobo and get conj My pug has 44 MND @15 So I should be able to heal a good chunk.

One complaint I've heard so far is that, because your starting class decides your starting city, Ul'dah and LL are both feeling the lack of healing available.

I didn't really add much credence to it. Simply because, outside of the very, very beginning of launch, it shouldn't ever be a real issue due to the ability to throw cure on your second+ class. Also, phase 4 will mitigate that with all the early levelers.


It's more of a superficial complaint though, because everything pre-airship is designed to be solo and balanced around that lack of healing. Once you require healing (dungeons, group leves, free companies, etc) everyone is free to roam the world through teleports, airships, and chocobos. And you join Grand Companies of any city you wish. Conjurers can become members of LL's Grand Company and that city is now their main.




A lot of Fates disagree with you. Best tactic i see tank til about half then kite and hope someone else grabs agro if you die dont rez wait til its dead so you get credit. Specially ones with things that agro because they all agro the first thing they can which sometimes is 1 person. Also there is no healer for raises so your SOL if you die mid fate your stuck laying on the ground til it completes if you release you lose your xp.

I think a good alternative would be to have a conj trainer in each city. But it is kind of stupid to have jobs separated by cities instead of races. Or just give everyone a choice ala FF11

Edit: P4 isnt going to be weekends right, Im liking the game now but hate that im going to have to wait after today to play again.

Macros and such were stored client side on FFXI as well, weren't they? Then they implemented an option to save them to your account so you could transfer them?

There are a number of games where the UI things are stored client side. I ran into that on EQ2 when I upgraded to Windows 7, I lost all my UI settings and macros, had to reset all of them manually.

Yeah, macros were client-side on FFXI too. It's just a bit annoying. Especially with jobs/classes being gear-based, so if you end up with three of four jobs you want to swap between, it's kind of essential to have those gear sets readily available. I mean, I guess I changed jobs all the time in FFXI without saved gear sets, but it storing such things server-side would help for those people who play on multiple platforms.

As a Gladiator, the Duty Finder is awesome. 5 minutes tops so far for grabbing a group on all three dungeons. Worked out just fine.

One thing I dont understand If I missed something or what but I cant do dungeons (16 Pug) it says Requirements not met, and Someone said there was tons of quests. Im stuck at 16 on Pug for the Pug Story fight and I cant find any more quests to do anywhere cept the main Storyline (I just passed the airship) Im finding a sever lack of quests, also wtf with battleleves being restricted to 3 per day, I could use them to try to find more quests or something.
I mean At least break them from being breadcrumb only lead ins Quests wont show up unless you did the ones before them for like EVERY quest.

Also crafting, Interesting take but needs a Mass produce but 0% chance of HQ. I really hate having to make every bar individually but I can see that will help sell them later. Also I wasnt able to find an AH is there one in the game yet?

I mean I may be wrong maybe Im just missing something but yeah. I unlocked every job and craft. I still find the game fun but I was getting ****** at certain fights and the feeling of being stuck because there wasnt any quests i could do. I was on the SL fight with the demon/mage and died like 2 times before I beat it, and Im STILL stuck on the lvl 15 pug quest even with the Npc healing me the Enemies taking like half my life each special move, and I cant find quests ANYWHERE cept those 2 chains

I found quests by working on the Hunting Log. It tells you what area each mob you need is in, so I'd go seek them out and grab quests in the area. Aleport was an awesome area for like 13-15. I had lots of FATEs popping up, and there was a group of 4-5 who were just running around chaining them.

You haven't done the three dungeons yet? You do those shortly after you get the airship pass as part of the story line. You cannot do the dungeons until you reach that point in the story (At which point it will flash on your screen that you can now access XXX dungeon).

I think there is more story line quests for you to do. And the ones after the airship give you a lot of exp. You can go from 15 to 19 just through those quests and the three dungeons.

Edit:
Oh, and there is a marketplace, but you can't access it until very late in the story line chain (near the end of what is available for the Beta). You get access to the Retainer, and you can give them items to store, and have them sell items on the marketplace for you. You'll probably be level 20 by the time you get the Retainer.

Edit2:
Actually, I was wrong. You get Retainer access once you complete the 3 city dungeons.

Ahh ok yeah I was working on Unlocking job/classes I havent unlocked them yet but soon probably Im doing CS talking to some Galka female


EDIT: Also They really really need to save your current eq when you change jobs Getting naked after every change and trying to sort through gear is a pain!

Do you know about the Gear Sets?
You save your own current gears and swap when ever you want. Different jobs, same job, what ever.

From your character page, click on Gear Sets. You can save your gear set that way. Then to change jobs, just go to your sets and equip the set for the job you want to change to.

TY, this is why we need a Linkshell and all be on the same server. I think for Phase 4 we should put together something since we all have to start fresh anyway.

Edit: Also this game is turning me into a pictophile, ive never taken so many background shots in ANY MMO

Looks like Ultros if you don't want to play with Legacies. I think I'll be making a character on Ultros for Phase 4.

I got some pretty awesome Aetherial armor/weapons, and a piece of Unique (Plundered) for my Gladiator on my first three dungeons. Seems everything was dropping GLD/PLD only. It must of thought I was just an awesome tank. My THM never got this many drops during his runs (plus he did extras of Tam Tara Deepcroft).

My haul from the three dungeons:

Aetherial Brass Dagger
Aetherial Bronze Cuirass
Aetherial Bronze Gauntlets
Aetherial Bronze Plate Belt
Plundered Gauntlets (Unique, better than the Aetherial I found previously).

On my THM I think I got a pair of Plundered Gloves... and that was it.

When you get to join one of the three factions. I joined Ul'dah's. You fight a bunch of dudes at an airship crash site and then this massive thing comes out. I think I'm going to try to kite it and let the NPCs kill the Imperial guys.
