Um.. how do I hit things with my weapon?Follow

So like... I can throw stones at enemies all day long, but I can not figure out how to hit things with my weapon...

I try to double-click on enemies and that will only target them (and I believe lock onto them), and hitting "1" will throw stones...

I actually looked around within the game to try and figure it out myself, but the Help/index/whatever it is called doesn't talk about it.

Oh... and since I am asking... do we rest in this game like in FFXI to regain health and magic? If we do what key is that? I am trying to learn how to play FF14 with a keyboard and a mouse and stay away from a controller like I used for FF11.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you're throwing stones that's because that IS your main weapon - what class did you choose? most gatherer/crafting classes can only throw stones at mobs. Do the following:

1. Click "-" (minus sign) to bring up main menu.
2. Click on "Attributes and Gear".
3. Check your main hand slot, if nothing is equipped, click it.
4. Equip weapon from inventory.
5. close menu, and find a mob.
6. target mob by clicking tab (maybe more than once - you can also click "c" i believe to lick on after you've targeted it)
7. Click "f" to go into passive mode OR simply click "1" or the first box on your hot bar to start attacking it - make sure you're close enough.
8. ???
9. profit.

If your not disciple or war or magic class then you cant. Pick another class if you want to battle.

Does no one read about the game before they jump into it?

There is an icon by mob name

red (hardest) -> yellow -> green -> blue -> lighter blue? (easiest)

In closed beta there were little icons next to the mob's name when you targeted it. The color and shape determined how strong it was compared to you. I believe a little blue circle was the lowest and a big red icon with prongs was the highest rating, but I couldn't tell you if that's been changed for Open since I haven't been able to log in yet.

Of course not. Winging it and hoping for the best is how any and all tasks should be completed.

Media blackouts til you can actually get into the beta (or retail) is fun. You should try it.

Regarding the other posts:
I honestly don't remember what class out of the four I chose... I think it was the third one. I know it wasn't the Warrior or magic Disciple... and I also picked Leathercraft.

I looked at my weapon and I swore it said I had a knife, but my only option when I double-click something is "1" Stone Throw.

It doesn't matter tonight anyway... I can't log back into the game because of lobby errors... will have to try again tomorrow.
