There is no shame in turning your noobstick in for a more powerful, more elegant weapon.

Might I suggest the following to help you on your path?

I do have a razer mouse and keyboard, just basic black and blue backlit though. For some reason, I can never train my fingers to use a mouse with more than 5 buttons.

If the controls are anything like they were in XI, I plan to use a ps3/360 controller.

Ive always wanted to try my 360 controller on FFXI but I could never figure out how. I did however use a gaming controller and just used the default controls which were the exact same when I played on PS2 for about 3 years so; it was nice. Hopefully the 360 controller works for FFXIV.

I'll never understand how people can use those. They look completely unintuitive, not to mention being drastic overkill even for WoW, which will almost certainly be more hotkey-dependent than FFXIV. They're absolutely fantastic in a technical sense, as far as DPI and tracking speed go, but they look.. well, ugly. Not as bad as this one, though, which is basically an abomination.

After quitting XI I was adamant about not playing XIV. My buddies that played XI would bug me constantly about how I was going to play because like smoking, no one ever REALLY quits, but I stood strong. Then I went to ComicCon. And walked by the SE booth. Ever seen the FFXIV trailer on a 30 foot screen? Yeah, save me a seat on the bus.

Is it just me or does that mouse have an instruction picture just for putting your hand on it?

Good thing too, I couldn't figure it out at first..

I was debating on this.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823126050&Tpk=g13

Or this.

I can't really decide until I know how the keyboard layout will be when the game releases.

I might get the G13 instead, an LS mate is having issues getting my gadget working for him, would be a good way to help debug.

After having three different Razor mice die on me a few months after their purchase, I'm never touching one again. Never had any other mouse brand die on me within a couple years of use, and it seems my problems with them weren't unheard of.

Gotta find me an alternative pretty soon, though. Got used to having all those buttons.

I haven't had any issues with ours. . though I *DID* have D/C issues with the Razer Lycosa keyboard.

There's always steelseries or saitek, however :)

I'm so close to doing the same thing that I can almost taste it. Only a couple of things stoping me. First I'm not "ready" to buy a new PC just yet. Second, I don't want to play on PC. I've always been a console gamer. But man, it smells sweet from where I'm standing.

I dunno. As much trouble as I have finding a mouse that's comfortable to use, that one might actually be nice. Plus it looks like a Decepticon, and you really can't argue with a Decepticon.

I just have a MS Wireless Comfort 4000 and a Wireless Laser Mouse 5000.

I'm happy with them.

Also, welcome to the club :)

I've been playing MMOs on PC for so long, I can't see how someone could do it w/ a controller. But I'm sure they feel the same way about people like me.

I consider this an excuse to upgrade/rebuild my desktop PC. I'm hoping to find a linkshell and be involved in the early stages this time around, and that's why I caved for the Collector's Edition. Given, a majority will probably be playing with that edition anyway so it might be less of a headstart, and more of an early way to sate the desire to play.
