    Yo. Does this game have big huge guilds like in WoW where everyone in the raid groups are expected to be guild members? Because I heard 24 man raids, 8 man parties.

    Btw, I wanna play on my PS3 lol, I guess game comes out tomorrow but the past 3 pages or so have all been complaints about logging in...you're scaring me.

    Pre-ordered the game this saturday, and I haven't received any registration codes, let alone mails other than the pre-order confirmation.
    Don't care about early access, but I'd like to register the game on my account to get it over with.

    Are we supposed to receive these codes on launch day or beforehand?
    Not sure if I should contact customer support now or wait until the 27th.

    From what I've heard from a few people PS3 users are having no problem at all logging in, dunno if its true or not though.

    Not really sure how that can be considering they use the same servers.

    Yeah a friend went out to get food without logging figuring he'd be kicked and when he came back 4 hours later he was still logged in.
    This is oddly reminiscent of the AFK "shops" people were using to stay logged in during the first week of Aion.

    They need to add an AFK timer ASAP.

    I know the game is still under some sort of an NDA, but anyone want to give some general sense of how it is? I'm intrigued by it but if it's just your modern day garden variety MMO experience in the FF world then I'll probably pass. I've certainly enjoyed FF games but I wouldn't say it's my favorite gaming world or anything.

    This is bad! I have no servers open that are NA to create a toon on, SERIOUSLY! /Flips table

    Wish SE would read my post on their fourms and open a new server for us to play on.

    You should've received a promotional code after pre-ordering in <xxxxx-xxx-xxxxx-xxx> format. You then input this code on the official site; should be a link to go there from the official page. You will then be shown an early access code to be inputted in the client for registration.

    This should be the link to enter your promo code and receiving the early access code:

    As we previously announced, we are continuing to limit the number of logins in order to address the high server load. We are slowly lifting the login restriction, so if you are currently unable to login, please try again at a later time.

    Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this is causing everyone, but we would like to ask for your continued cooperation to make this a stable environment.
    They just posted this a few minutes ago. This is what they've been saying all day. Its really not helpful at all. I wish they would give us a timeline or something as to when this will get better.

    They have their own twists on crafting classes/jobs leveling and end game. At the end of the day though its still a level>gear>dungeon>gear>Dungeon ect experience.

    It is more story driven then most mmos, but it is still a mmo after all.

    Yeah, pretty much. It has a very old-school vibe, kind of like Vanilla WoW. Slower combat, less buttons. It does have mobs using area effects, putting down colored shapes on the ground to telegraph aoe attacks, so there is a bit more movement than vanilla wow. Non-combat systems are more complicated (maybe unnecessarily?). But it is fun, and the graphics are pretty.

    Question for others: what level did you start a secondary class? I'm playing a gladiator, about level 16, and I want to become a paladin. I'm not sure when I should start on the conjurer levels?

    I'd level it as soon as you have access to it, to at least give yourself cure and protect, will make your life a bit easier.

    The skills from the conjurer will be helpful to you as you level so getting them early is a good idea. And you also get a bonus to exp you gain as other classes. The difference in the levels gives you a bigger exp bonus. So it shouldnt take very long to get it to 15 for paladin.

    So I managed to get 1 toon on a NA realm before they all shut down for new toons, however it isn't on the server the rest of my friends are on. Should i try and progress on her in hopes of transfers being available, or just wait since leveling the same thing twice is bleh (starting out as Arcanist)?

    I dunno, on one hand its an ok opportunity to check out other classes that you may not be decided on.

    With all the server caps they really should offer free server transfers with exceptions no transfering to very high pop servers, this DOES NOT mean it will actually happen. If it does though I don't think it will happen for at least a month or two.

    hmm, thats worrying, becasuse i know my friends wouldnt want to pay money to xfer just so i can play with them since Im the only oddball out >.<

    It won't be permanent. Space will clear up after 2-4 weeks, when people's free time starts to run out. Not everyone will stick around.

  19. #7999
    Nah, I'm sure it's not permanent. I wanted to make a toon on Behemoth on day 1 Early Access, but it was locked. I was able to make one there last night when they unlocked most of the servers.

    Just found this

    Q12: Are you planning to have a world transfer service?

    A12: As this is a game with world barriers, we will be preparing this service so you can move to the same world as old friends as well as new people you meet and become friends with through the Duty Finder. We plan on starting this fee-based service that will allow you to transfer to the world of your choice around 2-3 weeks after launch. Once we have finalized the details we will be sure to let you know.

    Doesn't look free, but it gives you a time frame to work with.
