In an update note, SE has said that it's now possible to "immediately exchange a failed leve". I haven't gotten this to work myself, but others on the forum here and IRC say they have.
Could someone write up a detailed explanation of how this is supposed to work?
Would also like an explanation as to how it works now. Tried reactivating at the aetheryte right after, but it was greyed out. Tried reacquiring it from the adventurer's guild npc, but received the standard "There are no levequests available" message. The only way I've gotten it to work was in a party, wherein so long as one person stays online with it active, it can be shared/assumed at the respective aetheryte. I can live with the 48 hour cooldown if they fix that aspect, since you can join others on their levequests as it is, and still benefit from the great xp/rewards/fun (plus it promotes grouping/teamwork).
I honestly have not crashed a single time.. with the exception of one time during the second day of open beta. luck?
Could be a mix of luck and successful patches, maybe? I haven't crashed since Friday, or Saturday morning I think? The game client runs solid now, for me. My only technical complaints are the random disconnects, UI lag, and the software mouse nonsense (The toggle's in the client already...shouldn't need to resort to 3rd party methods). Though those could all be attributed to background stat parsers running during beta, as well as devs wanting to record cursor clicks, perhaps? Only launch will tell~
Interestingly enough, I'm running AMD cards. A good friend of mine, who is rocking an Nvidia card, is unfortunately still plagued with crashes, on top of the disconnects. Thankfully, he has enjoyed the game so much, and is mature enough to realize launches (and especially betas) are rarely ever perfect, that he's going to be playing come launch. So, I'm still staying optimistic as the patches are steadily coming in almost, if not daily (which is what we want in betas...funny, people complain about that too), and I'm already seeing a solid community forming. At least on my server (Besaid), and within these forums. ^_^
