Sorry never got into Beta and I probly won't be on til PS3 release, but is there a Mail System for sending gear to other characters or mules? Haven't heard anything about it so was just wondering. And also is the starter gear Exclusive or can it be sent as well?

As far as mules go, we probably will not need to utilize mules in most cases (unlike ffxi). We are given a lot of inventory space this time around.

On the mail box, my guess would be that they will be implementing all of the "bells and whistles" during open beta, ie mail box, possible mog house, etc.

edit: forgot to add that the mailing system was not in beta (thats why I am guessing it will be in open beta since open beta is suppose to be pretty much the retail version).

When I had 80 mog house, 80 storage, 80 mog locker, 80 inventory, and 80 mog satchel, I was still having inventory space issues. We start with 80 inventory, and even during the last beta test, I was having inventory issues. Are there any other places to store items?

Just was wondering cuz naturally I wanted to start as a Fisherman but I heard they don't start with body armor, so thought if I started as Archer I could just send pole and bait over from a mule. Also never really utilized my mule in Xi, I had 4 Alts and 1 mule which mainly had Pankration stuffs.

Yeah I was surprised how quickly my 80 inventory filled up. We have the free retainer and I think in one of the interviews they mentioned that being in a company may allow you to have a pool of shared equipment? Perhaps that means a company storage...but that would require trustworthy friends or using it for crap you don't care about I guess. That's all I can think of at this point...and that last one isn't 100% from what I know of...

You can always buy pole and bait from Fisherman's Guild for real cheap if that's what you mean.

you, sir, are a pack rat lol.

I had a mule and between my character inv slots, my mog house, and my mule I was fine. Yet again, I only leveled one job to 75 and only played for about 3 years. I suppose if you had multiple high level jobs plus had been playing for 6+ years inv. would be a prob with only one mule.

I am still hoping for a mog house even though I dont think they have any alluded to one (someone correct me if I am wrong. I am sure there is an interview out there somewhere where they ask if XIV has mog houses), but there are a few areas in Limsa Lalimsa that were closed off during beta so maybe there will be access to mog houses in one of those areas. But either way, there will have to be an area to store items other than your character because then 80 slots would not be near enough space.

*edit* Thinking about it and i am pretty sure retainers actually serve as the storage service in XIV. I never did mess with retainers, but I am pretty sure thats how it works in XIV.

I think by the time I quit I had 8 level 75s, and full sets of gear for 7 of them. And by full I mean like, I had a dedicated haste build for BRD/NIN utsu recast. I'm no slouch.

ha, understandable then. inventory space was defiantly limited if you had multiple high level jobs, but possibly wont be an issue in xiv considering most of the gear doesn't seem to be class exclusive.

I don't know if it will be the same at release, but during Beta there were stalls that sell tools for all the DoH/DoL classes, even ones without a guild in Limsa Lominsa. So I would think the other cities should be the same.

The only reason I ran out of space in Beta is because selling or transferring items was so horribly painful

Your retainer gives you another 80 spaces.

And yeah, even with all those spaces in XI, I was having space issues too.

80 inventory space is definitely NOT enough for ANY game where you can switch classes on the fly. The good thing is there is no PS2 limitations this time. I wonder what the max inventory space will be this time before we hit PS3 limits. :P

Their new system are retainers for storage with the added effect of extracting more money from you. Every additional retainer after the first costs $1.

With the whole issues regarding you beeing forced to level other classes i am sure that everyone would want to get at least 1 extra Retainer.

The sheer amount of items just one gathering class can accumulate fills up a Retainer pretty quick. You have to remember that Beehive Chip, Beehive Chip +1, Beehive Chip +2, Beehive Chip +3 already take up 4 spaces.

Realisticly you probably want 2 additional retainers. One for your DoH and one for your DoL and the free one for all you DoW stuff.

Mules don't really work in this game because there is no mailbox and i am pretty sure there will be none in the Retail as that was one of the main issues with RMT activity.

Good point. I kind of always assumed their would be a mail system eventually, but you are probably right. SE's goal, it seems, is to do all they can to combat RMT from the beginning... and that means no mailbox. No mailbox makes it a lot harder for RMT.

I have to agree with some of the others in here - I didn't level too hard in beta, but I still had inventory issues. Though I do think it was a combination of trying out like 6 different DoH and then on top of that the horrible sell item action made me just not want to bother.

You really do have to give them credit for the lengths they seem to be going to for avoiding RMT in the game. I just hope some of these "cuts" that they are making pan out and really do keep that **** out of the game. If it doesn't, there are going to be a lot of ****** off fans wondering why they had to suffer through surplus, retainers, market wards, and no mail system.

While i certainly appreciate the effort of SE to try and remove any possible methods that could be abused by RMT, i don't see why i as a paying customer have to, quite literally, "pay the price".

We all know that RMT will exist no matter what you do. It's an uphill race that SE can not win, no one can win. If a player can make money (and i am sure we can) so can the RMT. It's rather pointless.

If it means i get blocked in my charcter advancement, i have to put up with an archaic Bazaar system, i have to pay extra for everything, then i rather take a little RMT.

The only way to really remove RMT is to introduce a barter system and remove the need for Gil completely.

PS: Funny enough you can do that in the B3 bazaar system, yeah, instead of Gil you could offer an item.

So...still no mail system? I understand that we already have a lot of inventory space and that mules won't be necessary for most players, but what if I just want to send something to a friend when he's offline?

What about people that want to have more than one character? Are they just going to have to buy duplicate pieces of equipment for each character to use and farm with both characters since they can't share gil? Because as far as I can tell right now it looks like the only way to swap equipment with yourself is to find someone you trust to hold it for you and then manually trade it back when you are both online.
