I didn't get to play beta, however i was wondering a couple of things, hopefully someone can help.
1st - Is there a signet like status? For helping with crystals and points that might be counted for gears later in the game? I know this isnt going to be XI but just wanted to check.
2nd - controllers. For people who will be using controllers. Has anyone worked out settings for which buttons will corrospond to each key to make the controls easier to handle.
I think thats about all now.
Thanks for the help in advance.
For the first one: No, nothing the like, for each individual field-craft levequest that is taken upon you may use the deity favor points to get a sightly experience points increment on kills, this however has no influence in your reward, and as far as the description of the status goes neither in the drops.
About the second question: It's really no problem, the configuration tool is a separated program (ala FFXI) and the game-pad configuration is complete intuitive, given you pad works, it's connected and has at least 12 buttons, I don't think you will find any problem to set it up.
Note: the only unclear option on the game-pad settings is a drop menu with the title "calibrate" which sets the sensibility of your pad sticks, the higher the number the less sensible it will be, it helps if your controller is a bit worked out.
I hope that helps.
