First Day of GameplayFollow

#1 Jun 02 2009 at 6:11 PM Rating: Excellent
How many of you are gonna camp the stores with friends and start a static from the get go?

How many wanna try to migrate over with linkshell people?

Who would be interested in making an Allakhazam static? Smiley: lol

What will you do first? Jump right out into the world and level up asap?

Explore the city and find the best items? Flag all the starter quests? Do storyline missions?

Go find a juicy NM Smiley: laugh?

What're your plans for Day 1 of playtime?

In before "download the updates for an hour, watch the servers crash, and go play XI until they fix it."

Probably simple enjoy the view and try to get use with the new mechanics, bringing the whole Mead Hall(aka Warrior Forum) together would be so awesome though xD

See how many of my friends are gonna come with me, get organized and probably try to figure out the city(s), find start missions and start leveling! Oh also probably make a LS (or whatever this world calls it) vendor so we can all be togther again!

An Allakhazam Static? Awesome. :D

Most likely on Day 1 I'll do what I do with every game whether it be MMO or RPG or whatever, Explore, explore, explore, kill, die, and explore. :D Quests, NPC dialog, everything. :D

Well thinking back to my first time playing FFXI I bet it will be similarly carried out. I started way back in Windurst which when you dont know about warp npcs the town is so massive! But that wasn't really a hindrance... I loved it. This was a brand new world to me. My only mistake was choosing to start as blm...

subless blm was HARD to level as a first job. 1-10 took me forever! but learning about monsters, timing your attacks to make the most out of every kill was fascinating. This was before exp rings and FoV too haha! Surprisingly I quit blm after getting warp2 and now have like 6 75's.

But yeah I'll be the guy who talks to most of the npcs and looks around before running after mobs~ but after that.... time for adventure!

I wouldn't mind playing in an alla static, I see some of you all on siren, but it would be nice to get together with the rest of you all.

Day one plans? Probably taking the day off and stocking up on food and diversions while i navigate update ****.

I'm going to get together with my old friends from FFXI that I met and adventured with for so long and open up a new chapter...it's going to be beautiful! Square Enix created much more than a game when they released FFXI. Friendships were created, memories had, overwhelming sense of accomplishment alongside your companions...I literally cannot wait to enter the new world for the first time and explore in absolute joy!

I think when I started FFXI on PC release date first thing I said was...

Dyne: How do you move?


It seriously took 10 min to figure out how to move

Also alla static would be cool but wonder if you will have option for what server your on, took a long time for ffxi to be that way.

I'm gonna definitely contact old friends and coordinate a server with as many old mates (or at least like minded forum citizens) in the buildup to release.

I always preorder and attend the release parties for FF titles, and even if I didn't, I would on this one. :) Once home I'll get in installing and off to bed lol.

Once I'm in the game? Oh man... I'm gonna soak it all in. I doubt I make it outside town the first time on. This time, I'm a little older, a little wiser, and a Lot more patient. I'm gonna enjoy those early levels for all they are worth.

This time around I want to make a site dedicated to some aspect of the game, be it crafting, transport ship schedules etc etc.

I always wanted to run a site like that so this time around I will figure out something that interests me on day one and be the "Place to go for Mithra heritage quest information" or "SP-NM spawn locations" or "Personal Airship Color chooser and guide" etc etc.

I'm guessing I'll explore the cities just a little to get the feel for how things are layed out and where important things are, then start exploring my character. If there's classes I'll be trying out the class and seeing if its what I want to stick with, etc.


And I'm down for the Alla LS idea, I'm not a troll, I swear! (I'm a goblin!)

Petition for a server named = Allakhazam!~
I'll be getting used to the game mechanics and exploring of course; searching the city for shops, test the battle system, hook up with friends new and old, and just have fun feeling like a kid on his first visit to Disney World

oh yeah, and taking LOTS of screenshots!!!

1. Make sure my FFXI LS mates know what server to go to.

2. Make a little gil, then start learning the crafting system.

3. Start whatever the process is of leveling a tank job.

One of my good mates work at Game.UK, stores usually get new realeases a few days before their release dates, although they aren't legally allowed to be sold until the release date, maybe I'll have my copy installed before it's released as soon as the servers go live I'll be there =)

On my first day.. I'll probably make a character for every race and see which dies the most dramatic/coolest and stick to that one LOL. I loved how elvs died in FFXI, extremely dramatic as if they were in a play, and taru's were pretty funny too (hopefully their in the game). Then I'll go mostly sight seeing, the weather effects, sounds, and such which I loved about FFXI. Also, an Alla LS would be awesome too!

My first day won't be right at release, i'll stick with XI till i read reviews and know where my ingame friends are going. I'll hopefully make the move to the new game at the same time as they do, so that we can level together and explore a new world.

Atleast asuming its not some half baked, easy mode, WoW clone.

At least this time around, on the first day of gameplay, I'll know better than to try to ask the NPCs for help. ._.

FFXI was my first MMO, and I was a very pathetic newb.

I bought XI ASAP. XIV would be the complete opposite. I would lurk around and try and get a perfect view of the game first. How many bots? How long respawn on NMs? Drop rate? Class balance? Does it take 2 hours to move from A to B? And all similar things.

I'm certainly not buying another time waster, ever.

Simultaneous worldwide release means I'm ordering a UK version rather than NA so I don't need to wait a week or two for it to arrive before I can play.

My current LS are probably going to try and stay together if possible so I'll hook up with them then go looking for quests before going out to explore and exp a bit.

I shall obtain the special lotions and make the galka put it onto it's skin.
Buts really... Probably seeing if I can jump...
(Guilty as charged, playing too much darn WoW)
And when I hear the news that we will not be allowed character transfer, I will have the portraits of my character as each job that I leveled to 75 burn in a fire in my backyard as I smoke away good memories.
Then I'll see if they fuzzed up all the jobs so they are only set up to one thing...
(I never really liked the Paladin as tank only, or whitemage as heals only, or how they made redmage unbalanced so they couldnt melee and use magic both as damage.)
Then I shall begin to grab my calender and just erase all my plans I ever made in the future.

How many of you are gonna camp the stores with friends and start a static from the get go?

I might do this after I talk it over and see how many of my current friends will be playing this.
I don't necessarily want to explore an entire new world with all of the same exact people, but I'd at least like to be able to do things with some of my better friends.

How many wanna try to migrate over with linkshell people?

See above.

Who would be interested in making an Allakhazam static? Smiley: lol

Depends on who is in it. Some people on Alla have really crazy attitudes (don't want to ever party with a thf/whm) or are just like an ostrich with their head in the sand (/nin is the root of all evil!!111). There are some great people on here that know their jobs very well that I would love to play with. To name a few: Melphina, Archain, lolgaxe.

What will you do first? Jump right out into the world and level up asap?

Explore. Isn't that the joy of it being "new"?

I'll tell you what i WON'T be doing. Gathering crystals from monsters I kill, seeing they only sell for 15gil a piece to merchants, and start just tossing them as I loot them. I didn't know about crystals selling for big money (at the time of NA PC launch) on AH for the longest time. So much wasted gil!
