I bought the Collectors Edition. I never played the beta. I'm trying to figure this game out and the learning curve sucks compared to FFXI so far to me. I venture out into a forest, find a rat and i pull out my h2h weapon and then nothing. I hit every single key on my gamepad (yes i configured every button previously in config) and nothing happens. Only once did my h2h hit the rat and then i just stood and got defeated. Manual to the game isn't giving me much to go on. Can someone give me a quick tip on how to start wacking at things????

I think you got hit by the Lag Train.

Hello Sir!

You are in the lucky and rewarding position of discovering all the mechanics of the game yourself. My TIps to you would be to make sure you read what quest and storyline missions actually say. There is a form of an in game manual by standing next to an aetheryte and reading through "call of the Adventurer" section.

That is an official site from square enix that will have updates on the game. There you will find an online manual ability to blog and read other player blogs.

To address the situation that you just experienced, there is no automated attack in this game. you have to input the commands each time, like a more traditional final fantasy game.

Success! I distroyed my gamepad out of anger and tried the mouse/keyboard approch. Finally getting the hang of it now.

Yay, I'd hate to see you give up before seeing the game more. Glad you got it figured out! Happen adventuring!
