First of all i love the game !
Some people complain but what do you expect it just came out :)

I have some question beacause some things just arent clear for me.

1. How do i shout ? sometimes i takes to much time typing tel plus someones first name and last name.
And seeing some poeple have impossible names.

2.Is there something like a guild and i dont mean the guilds you can join in the game like gladiator guild.

3.Can you get like crafting recipes ? or is it just you need to find out yourself ?

4.How do you guys communicate ? i found the communication with other players minimal ?
Is it just he you lets do a quest together ? i dont understand the mechanics yet.

5. Can you also buy armor and weapons or do you need to craft them ?

6.I know you can play every class just by equipping the right type of weapon.
How can i change in a caster then ? and is it wise to do so ?
I play as an gladiator and ik just want a little healing spell :)

7.When the servers are down for maintanance off course you cant log in.
But when i says my server is up i still get the error code ?
Can you only log in when all servers are up ?


Thnx for answering my question and im glad yall can help me enjoy the game even more !

Hit enter then type /sh <message>

2.Is there something like a guild and i dont mean the guilds you can join in the game like gladiator guild.

Yes - though not sure how to join heard you have to equip weapon for the guild and talk to them, other times I have heard you need to be rank 20

3.Can you get like crafting recipes ? or is it just you need to find out yourself ?

The official loadstone site lists a bunch of starting recipes (level 1-30)

4.How do you guys communicate ? i found the communication with other players minimal ?
Is it just he you lets do a quest together ? i dont understand the mechanics yet.

Send a tell to them? or change chatmode to linkshell?

5. Can you also buy armor and weapons or do you need to craft them ?

Yes - but crafting gives xp so why not craft?

6.I know you can play every class just by equipping the right type of weapon.

I play as an gladiator and ik just want a little healing spell :)

Then switch class to mage, heal switch back to gladiator

1. Typing /sh before a message shouts it to the area around you. Also, you can make telling easier, if the player is range you can select them type /t <t> message so you don't have to type their name.

2. Guilds are called linkshells, you can carry 8 of them and make your own for free. Linkshell NPC is in adventurer's guild. Leaders of linkshells can only invite you when they are standing next to you.

3. You can find em at this site, ingame there is no recipe list.

4. Players in this game are really reserved as they're probably FFXI players, with all that respect other players mentality. If you join a linkshell though, communication will be frequent with other players.

5. Some weapons you can buy from NPC, most require crafting. Armor is by craft or guildleves reward.

6. Just level conjurer or thaumaturge and you'll get the skill, no need to change to staff to cast it. You'll be able to use it as gladiator.

7. Games not all right at the moment in regards to game errors..

Thank you for youre answers !

But how do you change class quik ? thats the problem ?
Do you have a macro for it maybe ?
Cause in battle if ya need to change weapons all the time to switch classes is just annoting.

So you can change chat to linkshell, but does that list everyone who is playing or only your friends ?

2) he said not ingame guilds >.> anyways, yes they are called "linkshells"

4) er not sure what you mean...talk to them? As far as impossible names a Nickname function was supposed to be in and I would expect that relatively soon.

5) You can buy some, though its a bit pricey at times and some equipment (but not weapons) can come from leves. Almost all gear comes from crafters though, which while normally is very cool the current retainer system makes it a pain in the ***. SE said they wanted to improve this "by release" so I'm hoping for a patch on the 30th >.>

6) Get a staff lv conjurer up until it gets cure (4 or 6) and you can actually equip that as an ability on your gladiator. It will be less effective when cast as a GLA though, and remember MND increases MgDef, MP, and cure potency so invest a little into that stat as well since it has a lot of uses!

Yeah, I'm not sure the guy above me knew what he was talking about...

Infact, after reading, I think listening to his advice would cause more confusion if anything.

/equip main "Weapon Name"
/equip sub "Weapon Name"
/equip pack "Item Name"
You need the "" around the name and the name is case sensative.

Example:
/equip main "Weathered Scepter"
/equip sub "Bronze Shield"
/equip pack "Blood Worm" etc...

Not correct, or at least, not precise. Unlike WoW, you do not need to be given a recipe by the game in order to be able to synth it. But the game does tell you recipes. Every time you do a local levequest, you are walked through the recipe necessary to fulfill it, and it's a recipe you can do on your own if you want. You are also told *another* recipe in chat when you do fulfill the levequest as part of your reward. Of course, you can also get recipes off wikis like the one here, but be advised that many of these lists were compiled during beta, and a lot of recipes *changed* on release.
