    Post on reddit gave a helpful reminder. If you're planning on using a Fantasia strip down and drink it prior to logging off on Wednesday so you're ready to create your new appearance first thing on launch. That way you only have to fight through the queues's once rather than twice.

    Imagine her surprise when comes Friday, a huge ball of fur will be standing in front of her instead of this toothpick.

    You need to be only carrying your weapon (maybe job crystal can stay I don't remember ? But I took it off too) to edit your character because of Race/Gender exclusive outfits.

    Its just a requirement for changing your apearance via fantasia. Prolly something to do with how the character creation screen is coded.

    same, so i buy game keys standalone, but play through the steam client.

    I didnt realize either, until I was like 90% done with the leveling experience. So dont feel bad. I posted on reddit that I didnt want to do end game content with a controller and someone said "use M and KB nub".

    I sure hope my (and everyone else who is affected) lagging issues will somehow be fixed on friday...
    I'm having 15 seconds long lagging phases every minute or so.

    This would be a desaster otherwise.

    I would have, but having that little icon next to my character would drive be nuts...nagging at me that whole time.

    Part of the requirement for using one. I'd bet money it's because of gender/race specific gear.

    100% this....being properly nourished and hydrated will take your launch day binge gaming session a LOT farther than energy drinks/soda and salty/ sugary snacks or whatever. And you'll feel WAY better at the end of the day because of it.

    I can hope, but that just doesn't seem realistic given that all the things that normally happen on a launch day tend to make shit like that worse. So i'll just sign in with no expectations whatsoever except to see the launch screen, make my Viera and unlock the two new classes. Anything more than that and I'll see how far I can ride that wave. Launch days are always touch and go, so we'll see.

    They did something, I didn't notice any lags or stills in the last few days despite playing during prime time.

    I, too, look forwards to the next Raublock boss. The last one was so epic that I'm eagerly awaiting a rerun!

    Truth be told though, I'll be giving it a couple of days before I even get the chance to log in. Hopefully things have settled down in the meantime. If it happens again I'm going to level up some of my other jobs. Have just 3 at 70, and that's including Summoner and Scholar as two separate jobs, so I'm good for a couple of months at least.

    I drank mine neary 2 years ago and still haven't changed my apearance even a little. I never found anything that I really liked, so I just stuck with the one I had at character creation. It's not even anything good, it's about as generic as a player character can really get;

    I know I've complained (a lot!) about this before, but FF14 really doesn't let you have much fun with your characters apearance imo .
