Anyone know if on release day you will have to completely uninstall the Open Beta, or will it simply update the Open Beta to retail version via updater?

Taking just a shot in the dark but as many games I guess Final Fantasy XIV beta version will leave your user files after uninstall it, where your character templates are located.

I seem to remember (but can't for the life of me remember where) seeing that supposedly in addition to OB names being reserved on the release versions of the servers, we would somehow be keeping our templates, too. All I can think of there is that the retail installer will check for the beta files and pull them over. But to be safe, it would be prudent to make backups of your beta data as posted in the link from TaruHunk. :)

With news that they are adding at a minimum new Hairsytles, I'm not going to worry if my stuff is backed up or not really. This means the same for wifey probably - she'll want to try them all too.

I'm probably going to uninstill my Beta client tonight - just to be that more ready since I've done about everything I care to in the OB.
