Questions from first day of game play.Follow

Finally got to spend a day playing. I encountered a few frustrations, but had a good time over all. I wish the UI was more responsive and you didn't have to drill thru so many menus. I do have a few questions I couldn't figure out. Hopefully someone is willing to share some answers!

- Is it possible to buy a fishing rod in Ul'dam?
- Can you change shards to crystals without alchemy?
- Is there in game mail, or must you trade directly?
- Can you stop the display of your name without turning off all names?
- Is there a way to not display headwear? My hat is, in a word, fugly.

I'll also comment that it seems there is quite a bit of stratedgy in which job class you pick to begin. If you can't get botany or fishing from Ul'Dam, for instance, it may be worth starting with one and then buying into guilds that are located in your city of choice.

1) Yes, did you talk to all the vendors yet?
2) No, I doubt you can even change them with alchemy in OB but apparently they will be able to do this.
3) Not in beta, but hopefully in retail
4) No
5) No


P.S. I personally love Ul'dam, I dislike Lomina Lisa and Gradanus.

my source says 16 shards + a fire sand make a crystal, but not sure if its useable right now.

you can buy any craft/gather tools in any city just check the vendors

Fishing rod is sold by one of the vendors @ Sapphire Avenue Exchange area on your map, near the adventurer's guild. They sell the fishing & botanist equipment. Between that area & Ruby Road Exchange you can gather a lot of the equipment to be the other crafting classes. Romululu's Bric-a-Brac has some low level gear, expensive higher level shields, and the starter weapons for thaumaturge & conjurer. The Rudius has weapons for pugilist, archer, gladiator, marauder, & lancer. And of course you can go to the guilds for their particular equips.

If you are on FFXIV.zam.com, see the search box at the upper right? Any game item, leve name, quest, npc, etc shows up if you search there Smiley: grin

Search for Weathered Fishing Rod, it will tell you which NPC sells it, for how much, and where that NPC is Smiley: thumbsup
