Include one of those keys that helps against getting hacked or some kinda account protection from the start. Recently Both WoW and Aion have been attacked by vicious RMTs getting many players account hijack from phishing and keyloggers (WoW got hit hard with keyloggers weeks ago) and TBH the paranoia is getting to me.

My channel with FFXI battle music and hard to find songs that were not even released on Original Soundtracks.

I also plan on uploading FFXIV music when the game is released.

FFXIV Interview Compilation


Dengeki - Interview with Tanaka and Komoto - Sep 10, 2009
* Accessories like Belts and Necklaces will be visible in XIV. Possibly even rings
* Seamless zones in XIV the size of a region in XI
* Monsters will not chase you across the entire zone
* Weapons can be drawn in town
* Devs want to implement weather into XIV and have it have an effect (as of yet unknown) on players
* Dev team is considering making positioning in battle effective in different ways
* Aetheryte are planned to be a sort of replacement for the Moghouse
* How chocobos will be utilized is not yet decided
* Komoto mentions that a previous announcement of voiceovers for every cutscene was an overstatement. Voiceovers will be on major cutscenes
* Weapon decay is designed to be a major connection between crafter classes and other classes
* Failed attempts at armor/weapon repair will not result in the loss of the item
* Crafters will be able to customize gear
* Crafters will have very minor fighting abilities
* The amount of guildleves a player can initiate are limited by a set amount of time. Players can help others with theirs, however
* SE has an interest in having official Offline events
* The Security Token will be used, but not required
* Control layout will be very similar to FFXI
* Window and Text size are not able to be changed, but there are plans to allow for it
* FFXIV will be able to be windowed
* Characters will have a wider range of motions and emotes than FFXI

Any more details on "crafters will be able to customize gears"? Cuz I read a post from prolly a month or so ago about a discussion of whethere your are able to dye your armors. Wanted to know if that is possible and what other ways you can 'cusomize' you armor.

Crafters will have other unique abilities, such as being able to add their own colors or patterns to the equipment they make. It is also possible that shop signs will be made available to long-time players, although Komoto says they are still considering different options. As for battle, it appears that crafting classes may have some abilities that could be utilized for light battles, but have little strength when compared to a battle-oriented job.


I thought that was pure speculation but i guess not. If this carries over into the non craftable armor is unknown.

Hmm, if a craft is now considered a "job" in XIV, I'm really interested to know what they can contribute to "boss fights" apart from repairing stuff.

How did we get on this topic so quickly? this is so very far away from what the OP originally posted. And it only took the 2nd reply to derail the thread completely! Woot!

To the OP: No, SE is not stupid, even though alot of people seem to want to think they are. They will be using the security tokens that are currently used for FFXI from day one. It seems to work pretty well, so it will be worth buying one if you dont already have it.

That's because the first reply answered the question. Not much else to add.

Step one: install NoScript.

Step two: do a semi-regular scan for loggers and trojans.

Result: You don't get trojans or keyloggers.

I don't understand why it's so hard for people to not get hacked. It's not rocket science to suitably protect yourself.

I'm glad they have the password dongles available from the start, though.

Will they make an iPhone/iPod Touch app similar to the Battle.net one? I certainly hope so.
