Ok I'm new to* the FF MMO genre while I'm not a huge fan of the company the MMO caught my eye....

Ok here are a few basic questions, forgive me.

First....:

RP.

1) How common is it?

2) How is it handled?

3) Is there a realm for it?

4) How good is like interaction with objects and motion?? Hmmm.

Movement.

1) Jumping? ( ? I heard it's not in the game.... )

2) When do you get your mount?

Other:

1) Pet? ( Either companion or otherwise?? ))


I thank you for a sincere on topic response. Thank you!

I'm afraid I'm only considerring it.. probably won't get it, you know?

1) Depends on where you are
2) Depends on the group I guess
3) Since the game isn't out yet, it's hard to say but if you look for Kachi's sig, I think he's trying to start a group
4) I don't know.

1) Indeed it is not.
2) We call them chocobos, not mounts, and I don't know if they're in the beta yet.

1) I have heard nothing about any companions or pets.

To answer your first 4 questions all at once: No one playing this MMORPG RPs at all. It's highly frowned upon by SE as they like to focus only on the letters "M" "O" and "G".

Next, jumping is permitted but you get a limited number of jumps. 100 per character, but I heard you can buy more later (perhaps earn some with quests??),

You get a mount at level 99 (max level) until then, you have to walk at half speed. By half, I mean half of everyone else. See, in their frame your moving normally and they're going half, but in yours it's the opposite... It's all very complicated. Look up relativity on google if you're interested.

You can have a pet, but it's summoned like a pokemon and you have to shout it's name into your mic to summon it. Mics are also mandatory in this game and if you don't use it every 30 seconds, you lose a bit of XP. The penalty gets worse the more you do it.


Thanks for assuming my response would be sincere.*

1. depends. i believe there is a group of people on alla who have dedicated themselves to making one of the servers an RP server, or at least making a largely RP linkshell (guild). im sure someone would be willing to tell you who to contact if you were interested.

2. more or less however you want. there are a large number of emotes, but i imagine its more or less how your specific linkshell handles it.

3. not a dedicated realm, no. not like in WoW if that's what you're wondering.

4. you have a fairly large number of emotes at your disposal. interaction with objects is limited (cant sit at open chairs, at least you couldnt as of beta 2) but then again, some things (like crafting) are MUCH more detailed and in-depth than they were in WoW or even FF11.

1. sadly, no. nothing doing on whether or not ill be added either.

2. not sure. i dont even think we "get" mounts like in WoW. but i, not 100% sure on that.

finally, as for pets....nothing in game that im aware of.

Welcome to the site first of all.

2nd if this is a true post and you are not just trolling here are the answers.

1. Not sure
2. " "
3. " "
4. " "


1. No!
2. Dont think we know how this is going to be handled yet.


1. SE has said that pet jobs have been implented as of yet but who knows. But if you mean just having a pet following you in a fluff way, then highly doubt it.

Not sure (as im not into RP) how big RP is going to be and how many actually did in FFXI

RP:

Probably will be no dedicated servers, but the game is highly tuned for roleplayers. The emotes are great, the customization and character design is amazing, and there's a lot you can do to help roleplaying. As I mentioned before, the RP experience this game offers is superior to any other MMO I've seen.

Movement:

Jumping is not in the game nor is it necessary. The closest thing to a mount in 11 were chocobos and they worked significantly different from World of Warcraft. I don't know the mount situation in this game.

Pet:

Unknown at this time. Future job classes probably will have them.

RP.

1) How common is it?
There are several posters here who plan to participate in it. I don't so I don't know how common it is.


2) How is it handled?
Unofficially. Roleplayers are planning on picking a server to make the unoffical RP server

3) Is there a realm for it?
not officially as far as I know

4) How good is like interaction with objects and motion?? Hmmm.
I don't know much because I am not in the beta but from what I have seen the facial expressions are great - and there are a lot of emotes

Movement.

1) Jumping? ( ? I heard it's not in the game.... )
no jumping.

2) When do you get your mount?

I doubt there will be mounts in the sense of WoW ... in FFXI you could raise your own chocobo from an egg. Something similar may happen in XIV. I expect you will be able to rent chocos at some point. I don't know anything for sure as the game is not out and I am not in beta.

Other:

1) Pet? ( Either companion or otherwise?? ))
So far there are no pet classes implemented. There is a lot of hope from people that pet classes will become available in future updates. FFXI had summoner (elemental and spirit pets), beastmaster (charmed pets from mobs in the environment and used items to summon temporary pets), Dragoon (had a dragon pet) and Puppetmaster (had a robot pet)

I thank you for a sincere on topic response. Thank you!

I'm afraid I'm only considerring it.. probably won't get it, you know?

You may want to wait until release - or even until it comes out on PS3 - you will have a lot better idea of what to expect at that point. Also I suggest that if you want to RP you connect with people on forums first to find out which server to choose.

I'm almost scared for you cause of the bashing that you may receive, but I'll try.

1. RP it depends on the server.
2. How it's handled, either you ignore it or play along it's up to you.
3. No specific server, but there are shells that may do RP.
4. unclear as to this one. Are you meaning can you click something while in motion? If so then yes, sort of. But not really, because you'll be too far away to trigger any sort of reaction or CS etc...

1. Correct it's not built into the game as it is not warranted to be productive.
2. As of right now we do not know when you would get to ride chocobo's as it has not been implemented yet. Airships are even further out, I would assume. But you basically teleport, or walk everywhere.

1. No pets so far. Not even sure if there's such a thing as a Beastmaster or Summoner at current.

Your welcome, but just fyi. DUCK!!!

Ok do not take this the wrong way but when I said "mount" I did not mean WoW terms most games call them mounts....

Most gaming the word mount implies....

Something your character has/rides. Normally giving a speed increase. However it doesn't have to.

For instance

Wings in Aion, PW have mounts too, ( swords, beasts, wings, wingy (kind of-y? ))

If your character rides it it's a mount.

I would assume (I'm unsure but from what I've seen) a chocobo counts as one.

(( Btw I did know they are called Chocobo I just kept to the general name for most MMO )

I should also mention (I poorly explained it) the thank you was only FOR sincere people....

I figured there would be a few picking on me.

At the risk of being picky (Which makes it pretty appropriate that I chose that as my forum title), it's usually best to use a game's terms in that game. Different games have different terms for different things. What one game calls a "guild", another might call a "clan". What one game might call "HP", another might call "health"

The terms may be generally understood, but it's usually simple if everyone uses the same terms for things, rather than use a term from another game. "Quests" vs "Guildleves", "mounts" vs "chocobos", etc.

But yeah, as I've said; I haven't seen any information about Chocobos. I can be 99% sure that they WILL be in the game, but it's still in the beta, which means that it's obviously incomplete.

Chocobo appear to be in the trailer.... (I meant btw I didn't know if there were more mount-like things and to be honest I didn't know the terms (excluding Chocobo).... I've never touched the MMORPG )

but from there we're unsure right....?

Ok more questions.

1) Assasin/Rogue like class/career ( I'm not sure of the technical term for either in this game these are most common ) or closest to it.

2) Sneakiest race with male? (Ideal: sneaky smart backstabby eccentric )

I realize it appears I didn't do my history but I looked up a bit I just decided it would be faster this way then look them up myself to see if it's what I'm/We're looking for, Ok?*

1) Pugilist is closest to that right now. Probably will be something more along that line later.

2) Male elezen - Duskwight

If what you're looking for is a dagger wielder, there isn't one yet. Common term in XIV is class, but "Discipline" is a term the game uses as well.

Here is a list of the different disciplines. The melee classes are Disciples of War, casters are Disciples of Magic and the crafters/gatherer classes are Disciples of the Hand and Land respectively.

Chocobo are present in the game, standing near the exit bridge that will lead you outside the city. When you talk to the NPC standing next to the chocobo she sadly explains that a blight has killed nearly all her chocobo and she simply could not rent her remaining few out as she fears they may fall ill as well.

To me this sounds like a "no you can not has chocobo. wait plskthnx" I'm assuming (with little doubt)that chocobo will be in the game and we will be able to ride them around like in XI


Airships are in the game as well, you just can't ride them atm. If you look up in the beta you see them floating in the sky. Also, I decided to run off in various directions during phase 2 and came across a few raised platforms that looked a bit like docks. To me they look like a place to catch an airship, but that's simply speculation on my part.


in the morning, syntax evades me.

It sounds more like they just want to show people that chocobos will be available, but not in at this point in the beta. SE doesn't need to hint that there will be a quest of some sort to obtain chocobo privileges, they usually aren't too about just handing out game mechanics to people.
