At this point, all I know about XIV is that there are six elements (Fire, Ice, Wind, Earth, Thunder and Water). Assuming they correspond to days of the week, are they dropping light and dark or will they be included as week days? I also read somewhere that 1 game day was going to equal 1 real world hour or 1/24 of a real world day. This would mean that with either 6 or 8 days of the week, that every day at “x” time would always be “y” day in the game since 24 is evenly divisible by 6 or 8. Because of this I find it hard to believe they would have the elements of the day effect mobs and magic since that would mean that a person who only can play at night would always run into the same “game” days of the week. So, if all that is true, the only thing a timer would be good for is boat/air ship schedules and maybe RSE stuff (assuming they have RSE gear).
So my question is simply, is there a need for a clock that would tell you the days of the week and stuff, or has SE negated the need for one? Also, anyone know what the game days of the week are, what order they are in and at what time/date a specific day start?
Unlike FFXI, the cycles of the moon and weather won’t have an effect on things. Instead, the 6 elements will affect a number of things.
