FFXI Out of game wants :)Follow

I loved playing FFXI and to be honest, I really never got much from the FFXI website. There was the live camera which was pretty neat,,, if you were really boared, but that was about it as far as what was going on in the world live.
Right now we have a pretty usuable website, ffxiah.com to find out what is going on in the AH, but I have always been a little leary hearing about viruses and attempts to get your password from that site. An section on the official site would kept me coming back to it almost daily.
Another MMO out right now has an online armory that you can look at your character (and i belive others) skills, and items they have currently equipped.
I have purchased an app for my iphone (they have free ones now) that shows time of day, and ship schedual and shop openings/closings. I use it often as its alot easier than going to a website or just a quick glance to see if I have time to stop at an AH to sell some stuff and dont want to miss the boat.
I think a beasteary for different smartphones would be huge, I would pay 5 bucks to have it in so I could browse them during the day while I was away from the game.
Maybe a recipe book too.
Anyways, what things outside the games would you guys pay a little bit of your hard earned dough for?

To be honest, there's probably not much I'd pay to have around beyond the game. I made the mistake of integrating my real-life too much with my game-life years ago and it created very serious preoccupation with the darn game in areas of my life that should not have involved the game at all. It was an issue. The last thing I need is to be pre-occupied with in-game things when the game itself isn't anywhere near me.

Little clocks and what not are nice additions to the computer, but I doubt I'd pay for them when I can get that information for free, even if it might not be as convenient.

I think I'm happy leaving the game strictly on the computer when I walk away from it, but that's just me. I know the dangers of getting it too wrapped up in the real world.

Eorzea Clock.

Also Eorzea Clock iPhone app.

Oh, and physical Guildleves, either as a deck or single, high-quality plates as they appear in-game. I'd buy one.

You mean outside of the game? That's what this thread is about, you know.

Yeah, I guess he is saying he wants a separate window, or a hack inside FFXIV, or a cell phone application that displays the shouts inside the main town even when he isn't in the town.

But we don't know any of that will be necessary, because we don't know how chat is going to work in FFXIV. They may support chat channels that let you view main town shouts while outside the main town.

I meant in and out of game. I like to play more than just FF.... sometimes.

But if i had say and app that lets me see shouts on my iphone or my wifes android or even just a website. Then I could browse shouts while playing something else till something I want to do pops up. Or if I'm in game and I want to farm or craft or do a run of some kind I'll still be able to see if someone is doing a mission I need or a run for an item I need, and can head that way.

Since in Ffxi all I do is stand in gate till something pops up and play stuff on my ps3 or xbox currently.

Xfire serves this purpose quite well, I imagine it will be supported in FFXIV.

Thats not guna happen it would breach so many safeguards. (Edit that was refering to the firefox thing)

I would like to see an armory and an offical offline auction house website, although FF14 isn't using a proper AH this time so I duno how that would work.

The official linkshell page from SE does this, click on anybody registered including yourself and you can see armor equipped as of last logout, skills, current main storyline missions and a few other things. also serves as a LS forum.

I think a iphone app / phone for A.H. , character veiwer , crafting/sything , and choco raising would be awesome. A way to talk with friends and see shouts in town when your out of game is another great idea.

Remote LS chat and log with the ability for leaders and sackholders to kick members would be a great way to watch the behavior of LS members at all times. This would actually allow more freedom to be away from the game since you could still be present in the shell without actually playing.

A seek and page system would be nice. Like, let's say you could seek for many things at a time like exp parties for multiple jobs, missions, quests etc... and do all that seeking from your mobile device. When you get an invite for something the device makes a sound and you can choose to accept or decline. You then join the party and if you don't get in the game fast enough the party leader can kick you at any time.

I'd pay extra for those features.

I'm in agreement with everyone suggesting an out-of-game LS Chat option. Something that allows us to communicate on the same channel as our in-game linkshell mates. I'd love an app like that for my smart phone.

Love all the ideas! So, out of game app that can:

Show times, days of week, shop openings/closings, ship schedual (if there is anything like this in FFXI)

An Auction House viewer

A Beastiary

Ability to live chat to LS

Player Equipment viewer

Would also like a "Latest News" page

I know this is wishful thinking and it will not ever happen, but I promise you I would pay 10-15 bucks for something like this. Would be a great way to keep up when you are not playing.
