Apparently the patch is now available for download, and I didn't start it before I left for work. Smiley: frown

It's about 1GB. After it downloaded, I got right in, but I hadn't really had any issues around this time before. We'll see how it is this afternoon and tonight. The real test will be on the weekend.

Apparently, the actual patch data is next to nothing. The theory is that these patches contain a lot of blank data. In essence, the idea is that the space has been reserved for PS3 users, who can't easily create HDD space.

But that means they have some huge data file blocks, and a change to one of the parts means you need to re-download the whole block.

Unfortunate, but I can see where they're coming from. That said, it sucks that they are using the same architecture for both systems. Guess it's too much work to break things down that much.

I imagine any PC user who really doesn't want to download the 1GB patch can find self-patching information online soonish. Someone just needs to upload any truly new files, then show you the data fields that need changing.

As much as I hate my ISP, I'm happy our data cap isn't something we need to worry about.

Maybe I'll actually register my PS3 copy this week. I had been holding off because it was bad enough doing everything on a PC, but from my experience in the beta, I don't really want to **** around with PS3 login services any more than I have to.

Lots of posting about it on the SE forums (when I can get them to load, anyway). Guess we can expect more downtime today while they fix it. To be honest, I expected to wake up to a maintenance extension or two. I just hope it's stable when I get home from work. Smiley: lol

Reddit is suggesting that it's fixing itself for most people in time.

Apparently there's a thread on the NA forums about it, but I can't get it to load. Which I assume is because everyone just pounced on their website.

And yeah, not that I would have attempted to play until after work today anyway, but I was mostly expecting that maintenance would end closer to my log-on time than not.

I'm going to be annoyed if I can't play tonight, though.

Yeah, I see a lot of people saying it was 10-15 minutes for them. I'm at about 90 minutes. I didn't really have anything I wanted to accomplish today anyway, probably just farming some FATEs for seals. I'm torn between grinding for my next promotion or for chocobo barding.

As a side note, I realized you can click the gil count on your main UI and it'll switch to seals, if you want to check quickly how many you have. I'd been going to the character page and selecting the currency tab every time I wanted to see if I was close to promotion.

I like most of the minions. But I'm still not really sold on any of the mounts besides the Chocobo. I can deal with the Magitek and the Couerl, but it still feels weird for it to be a FF game and have everyone riding creatures that aren't Chocobos.

I think that was an issue in XI, too, no? Though, thinking about it now, maybe not. I could be conflating it with the issues GW2 had in WvWvW. That was fun - getting murdered by players you couldn't see.

I really need to make a plan about what I'm going to do next. Because if I keep on being indecisive. I'm just going to continue farm stuff. Harvested two full stacks of regular Moko Grass (plus the additional HQs), a stack of grass snakes, and a stack of something else I can't remember from that same area last night.

Granted, I'm SURE the Moko Grass will go to good use. And the Snakes will let me level up my alchemy with Antidotes. Figured I might as well get as much experience out of them as possible, since it's an item that could actually be useful.

The third thing was... for cooking, I think. That sounds right? That was mostly because I had the three stacks already and what the ****, why not? I needed some more exp for the spirit bond on the gear I was wearing, anyway.

I THINK I'm going to go straight for my chocobo today, craft just enough to get an early gear set for casters together, and then work on Thaum or Arcanist. I hadn't intended to main main the Conjurer... that just sort of happened. And I do like healing, but it's boring solo.

If you joined the Immortal Flames, there's a GC provision quest for Hempen Actons (sp?) that, if I recall correctly, require 9 Moko Grass to make (2 spools of the yarn, one bolt of the cloth, and one Moko Grass). You may already know about this, but I discovered it last night.

Oh it was a problem at times. I remember a hilarious Dymamis Bastok wipe where our entire dynamis LS was getting wiped by invisible gobbies at the elevators. It was only funny because my LS was so cool about stuff like that and it was a total Leeroy pull before Leeroy even existed. Smiley: lol

Apparently, people farm the level 50 story 8-mans for Tomestones of Philosophy, so watching cutscenes is frowned upon. I ended up having to skip them all and then going to an inn room to watch them and find out what I did. Smiley: lol I think I have one or two left to do.

Yup, more or less. It's not the most stable it could be, but it's more stable than I'd expect fro Ifm an MMO in its second week. I've been DCed twice, now. But the first was while afk for a while watching a cutscene, so it could be related to that. The other was sort of random, and I can't tell if it was PSN-related or not. I technically got DCed a 3rd time, but that was because the PSN went down, not FFXIV.

But I've had no troubles logging in.


Also, ***** anyone who won't let me watch my cut scenes. They'll wait for me, and they'll like it. If they want to farm content, they should get a group together to do so. It's not my job to diminish my play experience for people who want to GOGOGO.

If everyone has seen them already, and you ask them to skip for time constraints, fine. It's still their choice to skip, and they've seen it before.

But for first timers, just let them watch the freaking scene.

I had a PUG the other day that was a GOGOGO puller, only he wasn't the tank. But at least it made healing the dungeon interesting.

I had a BRD pulling like that in a dungeon. I let him die. I've noticed that BRDs seem to give me the most trouble. Especially sice they don't seem to wait until I've positioned the mobs. I think BLM and SMN tend to start out by applying DoTs, so on pulls I have time to establish hate before they really start laying into them.

If it makes you feel better, because the PSN keeps going down, I keep getting DCed.

Except that you don't technically to be connected to the PSN to play (a fact I discovered by somehow glitching through the login when the PSN was down).

They require you to be logged in to play, but it's clearly not required for you to maintain a connection to their servers. I'd really prefer to not have extraneous network connections that do nothing but increase my chance of DCing...

There also needs to be a regular source of gil in the game. From what I've read, it doesn't seem like there are any real influxes of gil into the economy aside from quest rewards, which dry up eventually.

Fates would be that, no?

From what I can tell, they're playing it safe and not allowing for massive inflation due to such a huge supply of gil. I suspect they'll increase fate rewards, if need be, and possibly replace the exp with more gil at cap. But I expect they'll take that slow.

That thread is pretty entertaining if only for the sheer number of people that don't understand that the AH removes gil from the economy. They all seem to think that farming/crafting to sell on the AH generates gil.
