I've been having trouble knowing whether or not I'm getting any loot at all. I'm not familiar with the previous games so I don't know if you have a button you're supposed to hit to pick up loot, or if it just puts itself in your bag automatically. Either way, I have discovered I have picked up some stuff by checking my bag, I just don't know when or what dropped it.
I'm hoping that whatever update is downloading at the moment fixes how I was having trouble towards the end of my play last night, where my combat didn't seem to be working right. I would select something, hit "C" to lock on it, and then when I'd hit my attack, it wouldn't do anything at all. Maybe it's me, but I'm thinking it started glitching last last night. Anyhow, I'm back today, waiting for the update to finish (it keeps sticking at 94%) and I'm hoping things are better today.
Loot was added to your bags(well, Inventory anyways. So used to using the term 'bags' from WoW) Automatically in FFXI.
I can't say for XIV, though, as the 4.70GB patch is at roughly 60%. I hope to find out within a few days though! Edited, Sep 4th 2010 4:35pm by Lyrailis
