Press F and put yourself in passive mode. Jesus! You are making this really hard!
Also you auto learn the abilities other than the special guild ones. those take points. you arent ready for that methinks.
you think i tried equip spear when i was in combat mode?
ehm no, i tried it when i was in town, after i bought it.
Still cant equip it, and it still doesnt say why i cant.
issue has been addressed. you need a new computer on your end. They stated they have a bunch of monitoring scripts runnin on beta so they can fix things. I'm not sure what you want.
when i say i have 10seconds delay, i mean i have 10seconds delay, not 1FPS or whatever.
actually its more than 10seconds delay from when i click *synthesize* until synth window pop up, and inbetween me clicking and it appearing, it says (not responding) in window.
i have 30fps and 100mbit connection, so ...again, its nothing to do with my comp, and it IS THAT LAGGY!
only moving around isnt laggy, it takes a second or 3 to start combat mode, it takes several seconds to inititate conversations with NPCs. and it take several seconds from when i hit esc in shop windows, to go out to *quit* store.
So the *issue* hasnt been resolved...
what i want? browse through menus, and fight without 10sec delays? is that asking to much? or am i to *hello kitty* for asking for 100- ping
A boss on FF would take a full alliance of people several hours to defeat. You killed a decent challenge. Also the Maps are Freaking huge. theres still places where noone is at all with lower mobs.
Mushrooms and fireflies are around same lv, but mushrooms have 10x more hp.
just saying. Why bring up boss' that require alliances and hours to kill?
im speaking of normal lv 1-5mobs.
and i was running around couple maps, and there was those raibow basilisks that did 6200dam, and then there was some marbods that are lv 1-5. they are everywhere. i havnt seen any low lv areas deep in the forest somewhere, where no one else is. there's just those squirrels, and mobs that 1hit you. so i dont know what areas you speak of where no one is yet, with low lv mobs...well except those squirrels. but why would you run into the depts of the forest to hunt squirrels?
Around the corner from 1st camp, there's linworms that hit me for 1-2k damage, am i supposed to go past those to find some untouched low lv area?
There is a game guide that explains almost every little problem you are having it takes 3 minutes to read. also beta etc etc.
like i stated couple times before, i cant read the manual on test site, cause i cant enter the site, cause when i try log-in i loop back to log-in page. endlessly.
i want to go read it, but cant. so im stuck with spamming ppl for help with all these details. cause there's no tutorials in-game...which is where it should be, not on web page.
This is the same system in a way from FFXI. Better ground was broken but not new ground.
There are no recipes outside what you find out. This ain't hello kitty island adventure. You physically have to compile them yourself or find a list where someone has. FF Welcome to trial and error
I thought the game was aimed at casual playing...
so why all the hassle of compiling recipies yourself?? its just time-consuming. which would be ok, if it wasnt for the 8hr/week thing. compiling it yourself, and always looking up what mats you need, etc is huge waste of precious time.
which again has nothing to do with skill.
your hello kitty references are stupid.
You might need to stick to WoW. They just give you everything there and no thinking is involved. Most of the major crafting items are found here
yes thats what i said, you must do crafting to get anything else than boots. and not all weps are available at NPCs either, so you must craft those too.
THERE'S A GIANT FREAKING ROAD WITH NO MOBS THAT AGGRO THAT LEADS RIGHT TO EVERY MAJOR POINT IN THE GAME!!! WHAT DO YOU WANT?
i went to some other maps, i dont think they had any cities in them.
was probably those.
cause there's paths to other maps, that dont go through safe roads.
Failure will not be rewarded. Read hello kitty statement above
you mean failure as in not completing the quest in time?
you do know that ppl crash alot in beta, and if you do, you auto fail quest too?
Square Enix = skill above all. I love it.
I like games that require tactics etc too.
i have yet to see any tactics in FFXIV. you just mash skills like any MMO.
FFXIV isnt challanging in anything else than patience. which has nothing to do with skill.
You really have put no effort into this. Basic problems are stopping you that everyone else seems to be figuring out. I'm not tryin to be mean with this... but really, maybe not the game for you.
You're right, its not a game for me, thats why i said the only things i like about the game is the graphics. the rest sux :)
i did figure out most of the stuff, with some help here and there. It just took longer than in any other game i ever played before.
And thnx for pointing out that there's no recipies, you need to compile it all yourself. That was the only problem i had really. i tried looking everywhere for recipies to craft.
Btw, its not *skill* or *challanging* to compile it yourself. just retarded, and time consuming, and serves not much of a purpose. Edited, Sep 9th 2010 1:58am by radacci Edited, Sep 9th 2010 2:01am by radacci
