Reassigning statsFollow

I was able to reassign my stats after allocating some, once, and then the reassign button was grayed out. How often can you reassign stats? Can you only do it once, ever?

And are the stats permanent or can you have a separate "set" for each class? Because otherwise it seems that even though you can change class, your stats determine the only one(s) you're good at.

Well, I found my own answer in the manual. Here it is in case anyone else is wondering. It doesn't give a set-in-stone answer, though, regarding timeframe.

Quote:
- Physical Levels
Characters gain physical levels by accumulating a certain amount of experience points, at which time they will be awarded attribute and elemental resistance points that can be allotted as desired, the former to increase statistics such as Strength and Dexterity, and the latter to increase resistance to fire, ice, and other elements. Any points allocated in such a manner may be redistributed after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

It is true. You get your ability to reallocate stats periodically. Now the trick is this:

It's not an, "Every 6 hours, you can reallocate all your stat points." type situation. It's more of a, "Every hour, you can reallocate 6 of your stat points." type situation. So you can't fully reallocate all of your points, and then do it again in 2 hours. You have to wait around for awhile to be able to fully reallocate.

Note: The numbers above are purely made up, but should hopefully describe the system in general. Individual numbers and durations will most likely be different from what's actually in place. Unless I'm just awesome at making up numbers ;)

Hope that makes it as clear as mud for you? haha. I know it's a bit of a weird system as it's currently employed.

Edit: Typos!

I believe it's kosher to post this, but if not, please delete.

The na version of the beta test site is https://dev-na.ffxiv.com/. Change it accordingly for Eu versions and such. The manual should be linked on the left hand side.
