First off, so far I have been excited about the beta. I understand the lag and lack of certain functions because that is being held for release, but there are some things that I would like to see implemented.

1) A permanent "Lock Camera Behind Character" option. I want to be able to turn my character and the screen turn with me. I understand I can set it once, but once I use the mouse to rotate the screen, it unlocks.

2) "Mark" Quest Givers, Trainers, Vendors for ease of finding. I don't mind talking to people sometimes, but other times I just want to know who out of seven people are the one I talk to in order to advance my quest.

3) "Scroll the Map" to look at the whole location. Cities are big, that awesome! But sometimes I would like to scroll the map to see the whole things from where I am standing.

4) Ability to change graphics setting or resolution. I think it should have a low, medium, and high level of graphics to choose from. That is probably something for release I expect to see.

5) Shortcut keys. I would like one for sheath/unsheath weapon, open Inventory, open Abilities, etc. This would help me from always opening the Menu to do something.

Overall, I am impressed by the character customization and settings. If you have any other things you would like changed or would like to comment with any info on mine, go right ahead!

I definitely agree with #2.

#3, if I'm understanding you correctly you can scroll the map by using the IJKL keys/

#4 You can change settings in the ffxivconfig.exe, which the game created a shortcut to on my desktop when I originally installed it.

#5 the shortcut to unsheath/sheath weapon is "f". I'm sure Inventory and abilities have one, I just don't know what they are off the top of my head.

I'll tell you want I want.

I want to be able to sort my inventory list (either it's not there or I don't know the button). I hate having to scroll hunt through items. Plus I want things to stack properly, not see 9 copper ore and 3 copper ore separated (or 10 ore and 3 ore). It should be stacked properly.

Also when you're selling an item and it displays the item's details, after the sell, it should go back to the inventory list instead of the next item's details. If someone is not paying attention and notice the change then they could possibly sell an item they didn't want to sell.

Get rid of a few confirmation screens (in buying, selling, crafting).
For example crafting,
1. I have one window open to put items in. Push Main hand.
2. New window with items that I can make with the ingredients. Select the item I want to make.
3. See the details of the item. Select confirm recipe.
4. See the details of the recipe and whether I have enough crystals. Push ok to start crafting, or go all the way back to 1.

That's a lot of windows to go through. If I don't have enough crystals to create an item, the item list in #2 should at least dim the row or something. Could also give me the option to view the details of an item or just let me craft immediately.
