Existing servers will be shutting down for good on December 31st to pave the way for the Realm to be reborn in the new iteration of the game.

Square Enix is encouraging all past and current players to take advantage of the game as it is in the remaining days.

All FINAL FANTASY XIV Worlds will be taken offline December 31, 2012, at 06:59 a.m. (PST).

Those who are in beta, please be careful not to break the NDA. Some people are already getting permanent banned regardless of accidentally leaking out the information or not. Once you get permanent banned, your account will be gone forever. If you played in the previous Final Fantasy XIV aka version 1.0, all your characters, etc will be gone.

Yeah thanks! GMG do have the DD, saw it just now. But I'm still looking for the package. No luck though. If I can't find any, then DD via GMG will be my last option.

I know quite a number of us are gonna pre-order it. As for beta, phase 3 is in June. Have you applied for the beta yet? I think there is a high chance that people who applied for beta will get in phase 3 because they are preparing for the official launch in August.

Oh okay. That's good to hear. Then I think I'll wait for a bit before I placed my preorder. It's still almost three months away anyway. Thanks Einzo!

Server Information

After weighing the pros and cons of new and legacy servers, we are leaning more towards to rolling on a legacy server. Factors such as original FFXIV 1.0 players who wish to play back their old characters have also been taken into consideration. What's known so far: Legacy characters cannot be played on the new servers but new players/ characters can play on legacy servers. As for which legacy server we will be rolling on to, it will be confirmed and revealed on a date nearer to the early access of FFXIV ARR.

We would be playing on the JP server, Titan, during the beta testing. When the game enters official launch, we would most probably be in a legacy server. As for which legacy server, this would be confirmed when nearing official launch.
Title: Re: FFXIV: A Realm Reborn
Post by: Einzo on June 17, 2013, 03:28:06 PM
As mentioned in previous post, we will announce our server as we get closer to early access date. As for how many members from Einsof are playing, I can say we have a healthy number of old players (legacy players) as well as new players. The legacy players can probably guide the new players along. Also from our track records for major games, you can see that we have hundreds of players. But this time, we will try out things differently. We will limit our recruitment cap and gradually open recruitment again if we need to. Though, we will probably allow relatives/ friends/ friends of friends/ referrals of our Guild members to bypass this recruitment cap. One of the reasons being, we wish to keep the Guild closer knit together first and guide them along.

Thanks for the info will look forward to the decision of the unofficial oceanic server before deciding with my friends on the server we are going to

To add on the bulk of us are legacy players which quit. Some of us went back to play during the last phase of v1.0 and gotten 1 of our classes to 50 so we'll probably be forming static parties to get another class to 50 so as to experience the next battle system and content

You're welcome. Yeah. Still early to decide on the servers. Yep, we have a group of level 50s as well. One of the major factors that we took into consideration on choosing Legacy server because they wish to play back their characters as well. :)

Noted thanks!

Btw my friends who bought from GMG have found out that the key are actually EU keys
So in accordance with my experience with FFXIV ver 1.0 you need a EU account to input this key when SE send it to you guys.

Do take note of this and create a EU account and apply for open beta or else you'll be screwed

Hi

used to be with u guys in GW2 but stopped due to RL commitments. Been thinking of whether I should play FFVX maybe need the opinions of those in Beta.

Can ask a few questions:

1.) Is the levelling very grind or is it quest driven like WOW or GW2?
2.) Being on a legacy server, would a newbie very disadvantaged?
3.) Being reading the preview, most people mentioned that it is like a WOW clone. Does this mean that there is end game raiding/dungeon?
4.) Lastly, I only social player. Can still get invite to guild?

Thanks for the time and kind attention.

4.) Lastly, I only social player. Can still get invite to guild?

Thanks for the time and kind attention.

regards,

1) So far there is no need to grind mobs. There are Grand Company quests, Class specific hunting logs, Grand Company specific hunting logs, Levemetes, Guildheists, Fate (Dynamic events), Side quests and Main story quests.

2) Not really. Most of the legacy players will probably start a new class. 1 character can have many class.

3) Yes, there are raids and dungeons.

4) Yep. Sure. :)

Hi Guys,

a newbie here who needs some help and clarifications.

For those who have pre-ordered your copies, are they digital or physical copies?

I'm running the game on PS3 and not on a PC. If I pre-order the game, how do I get the early launch?

Another thing is, does anyone know where I can get a NA PS3 version of the game? it's because I started the beta using a NA SE account >_<;

Appreciate any help I can get from you guys. If all goes well I'd like to apply to join you guys! Cheers!

1) Some digital, some physical.
2) Only authorized retailers have the pre order code for the early access. They will send you the pre order code in the PS3 code format. You can redeem the code at the PSN redeem code section once ready.
3) You can try getting from Amazon.
4) Sure. You are more than welcome to apply. :)

I'd assume then that if I make a purchase from Amazon for the PS3 NA version (hardcopy), the pre order coode would allow me to download/play the game without having to use the cd yes?

@Mion: If I already have a character in my NA SE account, by creating a EU account I woud lose my NA character right?

Also. has anyone here bought from Amazon for NA FFXIV?

Thanks

FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Collector's Edition revealed. Looking really sweet! Who's getting one? :)
I registered to this forum so just to ask this question haha..

Where can I buy the collector's edition for ps3? And how can I receive the early access code? Any shops here in singapore?

Please guys help me on this
Title: Re: FFXIV: A Realm Reborn
Post by: Mion on July 14, 2013, 11:45:00 AM
Yep. Already saw that. Currently likely it will be Masamune. We will further confirm it by next week.

Ok my only worry about going jp server is if our English speaking community is not big enough it'll be a big problem getting more people or play in pug

Oh this. There's a translation dictionary or something in-game. And also, I can read Hiragana, Katakana, and a few commonly used Kanji, but well, they usually use hira since most of the things they say are "Thank you", "See you next time", "Congratulations", all those simple stuff ._.

I registered to this forum so just to ask this question haha..

The only thing I know is that Early Access Codes are emailed to you, however, you have to make sure that you have pre-ordered the right copy, not the retail copy. Retail copies do not have Early Access. Though I guess they would state whether Early Access would be included in the product description or something.

If I'm not wrong, there's a digital CE?

Early Access should probably be only for pre-orders of ARR.
v1.0 CE will get the items of the ARR CE + 14 days game time.

Oh dear, it appears I've pre-ordered from GMG without knowing that their codes are EU codes.
They don't want to refund me my money as it is against their refund policy.

I can't use the code because my 1.0 account is a collector's NA account, I only pre-ordered for the pre-order bonus, I'm such a sucker lol >.<

Does anyone want to buy a Standard Edition EU FFXIV code? Since I can't get back my money, I might as well try my luck to sell it to someone to wants it~

Hi ppl! Is the server going to be full for newbies or anything? Im considering to play this game but not sure if there would be like space considerations for the server Masamune. What country do you all put when creating the account? Singapore is not inside.... =(

Used to play AOW although im pretty low profile.
Title: Re: FFXIV: A Realm Reborn
Post by: Mion on August 03, 2013, 07:47:01 PM
The server is actually quite populated atm with the Legacy players, therefore it is best to login right when Phase 4 starts.  It would also be better to create a character through the benchmark first so that it can be imported into the game, saving about 10 minutes of customisation.

As for the country, it depends on where you bought the game from, although most of us are using EU accounts.

I was previously a guildie in Einsof back in the early days of GW2, not sure if anyone of the members currently playing this game would remember me.

But as for this game, currently is there any (good) particular guide that legacy players can recommend to me so I can read up like a n00b, in order to prepare myself for what's ahead? *ps* gonna for the lancer/dragoon route

Already used the benchmark system to create a highlander, waiting for the Final Phase to start before I can actually apply for beta.

With luck, I hope I will be able to see some old friendly faces.
Title: Re: FFXIV: A Realm Reborn
Post by: Mion on August 04, 2013, 10:21:13 AM
Game's pretty new... And it's quite easy to pick up as well. Last I played Lancer in Phase 3, it was a class that require positioning (flank, back) to deal maximum damage.
Title: Re: FFXIV: A Realm Reborn
Post by: Capristo on August 04, 2013, 11:37:21 AM
ahhhhh, I see I see....very typical positioning.

I was more worried that this game may have followed the structure of WoW's class skill system build or like it's profession. If it doesn't then....I strongly believe that it would really be easy to pick up.

 Also such things as, racial stats and stuff affect the jobs you choose. E.g, one might choose role of a tank but choose lalafells (which are lacking in str/vit ) because they look way better.
Title: Re: FFXIV: A Realm Reborn
Post by: Mion on August 04, 2013, 01:07:02 PM
There are no skill trees like WoW in FFXIV, reason being that you can play and level all classes with just one character without the need to create alts. There are also no skill points to add to skills, and you automatically acquire new skills as you level up. It is also possible to cross-class skills eg. GLA using a ARC debuff, Venemous Bite.

Racial stats are negligible and are only there as a form of lore aspect, eg. Lalafells have a small built, which would also mean that they would be more swift and nimble, therefore a slightly higher dex. Moreover, you would start gaining stat points from level 10 onward to add into any stat that you want, according to your class, of course.

The only thing that you should take note if you are playing a Lalafell tank would be to be aware when your healer is casting an AoE heal. Sometimes it's hard to see where a Lalafell tank is due to their small build. You can even create a Roegadyn CNJ/THM, but I have heard that they look horrible in magician robes lol. And finally, there are no racial skills in ARR.

Significant P4 and Early Access notes:


- Character data (Gil, EXP, whatnot) will be carried over from P4 to Official release.

- Arcanist will be playable from P4.

- P4 starts at 5pm (+8 GMT) on August 16 for P3 testers, 17 August for new players.

- Fishing will be available in P4.

- Transfer of items and Gil from character to character within the same account and same server will not be possible. This is to prevent RMT activities.

-Content in P4 is capped at level 20.

-Racial stats are negligible even at level 50. The difference will be very small.


Other notes:


- Game time cards will be available in forms of 30 days and 60 days. Not confirmed if it will be available in Singapore convenience stores.

You can sign up for beta phase 4 most probably on the 17th at 0900 GMT. Just go to http://entry.ffxiv.com/beta/index_na.html if your SE account is NA, or http://entry.ffxiv.com/beta/index_en.html if it's EU. Account region does not affect what servers you can play. It only affects the type of payment methods and game box region that you can apply on it.

Server: Masamune

If you are not able to join Masamune now, please try again later. Character creation has been TEMPORARILY halted on several servers. They will be opened again gradually. Meanwhile, some of us already managed to get on to Masamune. We will be waiting for you.

For those who managed to get into Masamune, you may contact these people for an invite to the Linkshell: Einzo Hattori, Ismenia Acker, Kobato Chan, A'vize Ro.

Legacy players don't get early access unless their account is Legacy account. There are requirements to be met for an account to have Legacy status. Example: Subbed 3 months during the 1.0 period. Legacy player means those who played 1.0 but that doesn't mean they have Legacy status.

Are you using NA or EU account? If EU account, there's a way to buy the early access for around SG$10-15 but for NA unfortunately, no. :(

Please download the launcher at http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/beta/ffxivsetup.exe, login, and download the rest of the game. It should amount to about 8-9GB.

For players who already have the client:
There is no new patch for the game as of yet, but there is a small update for the launcher.

Hi,

No, you do not need to pay an additional fee. However, if you wish to play both characters when your free 30-day subscription ends, you have to pay extra.

If that is the case, how do I delete away my Beta character as I do not wish to pay additional fee for that?

Anyone can advise what time (SG timing) will the pre-access start? Is it Singapore time, 5pm on 24 Aug?

Thank you

Important FFXIV ARR Update: When you activate your game, do NOT use 'add new service account'. Use 'add platform'. Many people have been screwed by Square Enix's messy and confusing interface/ system and a whole lot have just been screwed again. :(

Masamune world is also open once again. If you have friends who are not able to get in, they can do so now. :)

Is there a link or site where you can see if Masamune server opens up for new players?

I have friends who would like to join but no idea when the server opens up, so far the lodestone notices only say that most servers are closed.

As far as I know, there isn't any other than the announcements, not even sure if there is a way to get notified if a new announcement is posted. You could wait until after maintenance of when they will improve the server stability and capacity of JP data centers.

Maybe then they will lift the restriction for character creation. That's still a 'maybe' though. Don't take my word for it. ^^;

So far the following pattern has been observed: Masamune was unlocked around 12am GMT+8 for the past few days. As reported by the people who could not get into Masamune, they could register a character on Masamune around this timing. Square Enix is also adding more server capacity in time to come.

"Greetings,

The development team is aware that there are times when you cannot participate in content so easily and without worry, and I’d like to let you know future countermeasures we have planned to address this.

Significantly reduce repair fees and the cost of dark matter
While the focus will be placed on high-levels, we will be significantly lowering the overall fees for repair and the cost of dark matter.

Addition of item level requirements for high-level dungeon participation
We'll be adding a requirement to participate in high-level dungeons and hard mode primal battles that will make it so you need to have equipment above a certain item level equipped to participate. To coincide with this, we will be implementing a system that will display the average item level for your gear in the character window.

Addition of a party recruitment window
We'll be implementing a bulletin board type of system where you can recruit party members that are only on your world. When recruiting, you can indicate the dungeon you would like to do, the roles you are looking to recruit, the levels, etc. (We'll be announcing the details soon.)

We will be addressing #1 after the maintenance tomorrow, and #2 and #3 will be implemented after patch 2.1."

[Update Details]
The following features have been implemented:

-An auto-logout feature has been introduced wherein characters that are inactive for 30 minutes will be automatically logged out of the game.

The following adjustments and countermeasures have been implemented:

-Changes have been made to the behavior and mechanics of the enemies found within the “The Wanderer’s Palace” and “Amdapor Keep” dungeons to counteract instances of players running through the dungeon without engaging enemies on the way to bosses.
As advancing through dungeons without defeating enemies is not an intended strategy, we plan to continue making further changes in the future to discourage this type of behavior.
-In instance dungeon “The Wanderer's Palace” and “Amdapor Keep”, we have increased the amount of AllaganCoins that can be obtained from a treasure chest.
-Reduced the amount of gil required for repair fees and materia removal as follows:

Equipment levels 1-10: 10 gil -> No Change
Equipment levels 11-20: 50 gil -> 30 gil
Equipment levels 21-30: 100 gil -> 60 gil
Equipment levels 31-40: 210 gil -> 120 gil
Equipment levels 41-40: 500 gil -> 200 gil

-Reduced the price of Dark Matter as follows:
Dark Matter G1: 5 gil -> 4 gil
Dark Matter G2: 30 gil -> 12 gil
Dark Matter G3: 70 gil -> 24 gil
Dark Matter G4: 150 gil -> 48 gil
Dark Matter G5: 350 gil -> 80 gil


A temporary countermeasure has been implemented for the following issue:

-For the issue wherein the “Manor Sentries” found within the Haukke Manor dungeon could become stuck and prevent players from progressing through the instanced dungeon, we have changed the original location of “Manor Sentries” to the second floor.


The following issues have been addressed:

-The server would crash under certain conditions during instanced dungeons.
-Characters would sometimes get stuck in the “Binding Coil of Bahamut” dungeon after the party was wiped out.
-Bomb Boulders would sometimes fail to appear in “The Navel (Hard)” battle.
-Certain monsters would sometimes get stuck in the “Amdapor Keep” dungeon.
-The option to return to Home Point would not display when completing a primal battle while being KO’d.
-The entry point for the “The Thousand Maws of Toto-Rak” dungeon was shown in the field in the “Stinging Back” guildhest.
-The “Steel Reign” FATE would sometimes fail to appear.
-Completing the “Behold Now Behemoth” FATE would sometimes cause the server to crash.
-If the player was disconnected during the “Lady of the Vortex” instanced battle, the Duty List, Journal, and Journal Map may display incorrectly.
-The “Notorious Biggs” quest could sometimes be progressed without completing the instanced battle.
-There were occasions where it was impossible to target the snowman in the “Speak Softly to Me” quest.
-The cutscene was canceled if the player was attacked during the “Lord of Crags” cutscene.
-If a player logged out while being bound by duty within an instance, and logged back in after conclusion of the instance, the free company chat would not work.
-Mog Letters were not sent properly in some instances.
-Certain conditions would sometimes cause the server to crash while interacting with the free company
“Company Chest”.
-The “Reach” gauge was sometimes not selectable when in a new, unknown gathering point.
-In some instances, the specified items to collect were incorrect in the “A Relic Reborn” quest.
-In some instances, the specified enemies to defeat were incorrect in the “A Relic Reborn” quest.
