A few more, all taken at 1080p, so this might be mahoosive for your screen if you're on your laptop (like me >.>)

edit: they actually have been resized by ZAM, so go figure.

Just be prepared for alot of juvenile jokes if you do indeed play Lancer. Your starting skills are Light Thrust and Heavy Thrust. Also, Heavy Thrust has an added effect of Bind.

I'll just leave it at that.

A few more, middle one may be NSFW... but it is as naked as you can get.

And for perspective, one of Rjain's images showed the map of La Noseca. The marker on the right of the map showed Ceaderwood. This next screenshot is me entering the Ceaderwood area from the north. The spire in the distance is the Mizzenmast in Limsa Lominsa. If you have line of sight to a landmark in La Noscea, you can see it rendered. The draw distance is that far.

Edit: This is the map, http://bluefalkon.net/images/ff14/ff14_beta13.jpg , and my vantage point is even further off the map to the North East of Ceaderwood.

I'm currently in the process of uploading pics of Snippers, Salamanders, Goobbues (yey!), a couple from character creation (nothing special in terms of the pics) and a few from around and the opening cutscene (which is done in ingame graphics btw ^^) apologises for the graphics, my comp was amazing when I bought it.. about 2.5 years ago... it can handle the game fine on the HD settings, but I prefer to play with stability and higher fps than super graphics. will edit post with links once they're done

I dont know if i am one of the few, but i am glad they havent opened up other areas yet. It will provide some excitement in going to different places that i have never seen before.

Of course there is the downfall that if the in-house testers didnt do their jobs and missed some stuff it could be hella buggy in the other areas on release.

So-so-so...you're holding a musket in a screenshot. Does that mean Musketeer is going to be available? I know they said otherwise, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

it's part of the opening mission. currently at least that class doesn't exist. imo expect it in the first major update (they need to leave stuff for later obviously) or maybe as an 'advanced job' like in FFXI? who knows

For those of a nervous spoiler dispostion, I'll hide the Gunslinger explanation:
The opening mission, "Treasures of the Main" (don't ask me, it does seem a silly title), introduces you to a lot of concepts (Guildleves, escorts, emotes) and a lot of the guilds. This is part of the cutscene from the Musketeer's Guild, or Coral Tower - base of operations for the Knights of the Baracudas - Limsa's police/army/navy all rolled into one. The 'Cudas (as many NPCs will refer to them as) do not see fit to take you on as a Musketeer based off your performance on the firing range.

you presume that pirate talk would be specific only to pirates... not everyone is posh or a farmer, but if you grow up in that area I can bet you you'll have that type of accent

So is the Ceaderwood area the farthest you can go from Limsa-Lomimsa in the beta? Also, is the area out of the city one big "zone", or do you have to zone like in FFXI?

I believe the title of the first mission is a reference to the Spanish Main of the 16th-18th centuries, makes sense since Limsa Lhominsa (sp?) seems very pirate-y and the Spanish Main was the golden age/area of pirate-y.

personally it doesn't even feel weird to me... but then I do have an interest in accents and it's very weird for someone to not pick up a lot of the local intonations.. even foreigners who have resided there for a few years or more.

Ceaderwood is about half way to Camp Bloodshore. Camp Bloodshore is near the edge of our current area (sub camps, called Atherial Gates) are scattered about and Ceaderwood is one of those (hence the different icon to Camp Bearded Rock). The northern half of La Noscea is currently inaccessible. The mountain (the name of which I forget) is even further north than that, and is truly colossal. If you can see the northen horizon, you can see it.

Edit: A few more. Going to get some map screens next time I'm online.

In Soviet Eorzea, Biast... you know the rest...

Edit: Dagger99, I'm actually glad they're scaled down a bit, otherwise you'd see how much I've had to compromise in graphical quality to get a stable runtime. Also, my version of Fraps is quite old, so it doesn't capture very well, so you'd see more artifacts at the full res.

Seeing the map of Eorzea and then knowing that it is smaller than Vana'diel (can't remember what article SE said this) I wasn't expecting too much. Now I'm in the beta and I get to explore La Noscea, it feels pretty huge considering a part of it is blocked and it's only island (probably wrong term?). I'm definitely excited for launch and being able to explore more of Eorzea! :)

What's illogical about the pirate-esque dialect? Where I live, a LOT of people talk like that. It's a maritime area, it's maritime dialect.

Also, as for the gun class, I'm assuming it's something to the degree of an advanced job class coming later.

Viewing the center pic you posted there I can say I don't think there will be a reason I'll actually bother with dat mods if they are made for this game. Finally some decent undergarments that don't look like you're trying to be a part-time hooker (IE FFXI Mithra). I don't know about the rest but if you're running around with your armor unequipped it shouldn't look like you're wearing a full set of clothing underneath.

Anyway, FFXIV is shaping up to look quite nice. I can't wait until release day.

Agree.

Although in the beginning in some stills FFXIV looked dangerously close to FFXI, and although totally not a bad thing, I was worried that SE got lazy and just did a texture refresh or something.

BUT I can see now this is not the case. Yes somethings do look similar, but after looking at the making of videos on youtube, one can see how much effort has gone into making this game.

I can't wait for my CE making of DVD!

The rat kicks a nut at you. You don't actually get kicked in the nuts. If that were the case, it would no doubt do minimal damage to females.
