This is a good one! Some answers!

Lodestone:

Quote:
Synthesis
Q. I haven't been having much success crafting items. What am I doing wrong?
A. The colored, glowing graphics provides players with a large hint toward a successful synthesis. When the glow is white, the synthesis is at its most stable, and the chances of success are high. When the glow takes on a color, however, the chances of success are low. Players seeking simple completion of their synthesis rather than high-quality results should attempt to use the Wait command when the indicator is colored to restore the stability of the synthesis before finishing it.

Q. Is there a trick to synthesizing high-quality items?
A. Though synthesis actions carried out while the colored circle graphic is red suffer a reduced rate of success, they often serve to increase the quality of the synthesis. In addition, the successful execution of consecutive actions also serves to increase quality. Ultimately, the higher the quality of the synthesis process, the more likely it is to yield a high-quality result.

Q. What do the values attached to synthesis materials, such as +1, signify?
A. These values represent bonuses applied to the durability and quality of a synthesis when it is first begun. Unlike increases to quality made during the crafting process, this initial bonus has no bearing on the degree of difficulty of the synthesis. Such bonus materials therefore increase a player's chances at synthesizing high-quality items, without increasing the difficulty of the synthesis.

Q. I am able to choose between using my main hand or off hand tool when beginning a synthesis. What is the difference?
A. Main hand and off hand tools have varying characteristics which manifest themselves in different ways when a high-quality result is achieved while synthesizing. There are many possible outcomes. For instance, a successful synthesis with a main hand tool may result in a +1 or +2 item, while the result obtained with an off hand tool may be a higher yield of regular quality items.

Q. I don't have enough of the crystals I need for synthesis. Is there a way to get more of the certain crystal type I need?
A. Other than looting fresh corpses, crystals can also be obtained through gathering. Further, for Disciples of the Land, allotting elemental bonus points to a certain element will result in a greater likelihood of procuring crystals of that type. Location is another factor to consider, as some places will yield more of certain crystal types than others.

Players had already figured out that White = more successful and red = quality. Good to know yellow doesn't increase Rapid results though, I'll stop that.

What happened to the SE of old that let us figure everything out on our own!? I swear if they tell us how the moon phases affect everything I'm leaving forevers!

I agree - this is still pretty vague. I'm actually beginning to wonder if SE has some sort of a gag order on all the major sites - I can't find one review, not one preview, not one informational tidbit on any of the major sites regarding this game dated recently. Certainly nothing that I would expect for a major MMO that has just released - I would expect a lot more breaking-front page - wham bam excitement news than... This.

They're just trying to add some flavor to their answers. It's referring to the crystals/shards that drop off of monsters.

I'm taking it that this means use your main hand for gear, and off-hand for mats?

That's pretty much what I've been doing, weaving wise anyways. Creating yarns and cottons and threads and all that good stuff is usually reserved for the wheel and to put it all together I bust out my trusty Rusty Needle

I think, assuming equal level, use whichever tool seems more logical. If you're making planks out of a log, would you use a saw or hammer? However, its been said that you should be able to craft everything in game using your main hand tool. I made 6 ranks worth of hempen yarn with a needle today, didn't fail once.

I also think it’s a bit too early to call it failed. but it has some serious floors with it. like the Random element? I always figured white light = higher success rate. but when I try and make things I should be able to make, I don’t notice any higher success rate, and inspire of using abilities and highest level synth support, +1 tools and Equip, I STILL fail on things below my level at 50% completion.
(E.g. Hempen cloth, Sheep leather,)
it seems inspire of my best efforts to insure success, whether or not I will fail/succeed is decided buy a "random" Decision from the game.
that how it feels.

and the "Recommended Training" that as far as I can tell is unavailable/unobtainable.
costs 5000 Guild points, that you can only start getting when your Craft Rank is over 20.
but to get over 20 you have to waist thousands of crystals and matts making things that you cannot make a profit on, because if you try to make anything ells, you will fail 80% without the training.

so to try and create an player run economy won’t happen till enough people are over 20 and able to make what they want, and then sell it for reasonable amounts.
NPC's sell matt's and equipment for Silly-amounts of gill. 30K for a level 8 bow??
the only way I know of anyone (aside the few who HAVE made it over 20 craft and had some luck crafting) is to do Guild leaves and find Chests with gear in.
so once again, how I gear my character is determined randomly buy what chests I find.

yea i think thats the Jist, But what happend when you have all the Earth Crystals you need, and then you change to your fighting class, Lancer pick afight with a crab, it dose some water based atack and it owns you becouse you put your resistances into Earth?...
dose this mean you have to decide if your gona be DDing more than your crafting?
or that if your going to craft allot and need Crystals you cant DD/Tank efectivly?

Windexy - you have a bit of a bad attitude and I'm not sure what it stems from. The spin that SE puts on the fact that extra playable characters cost 3$ a piece is that you CAN do everything on one character - so they aren't needed. It's not unreasonable to expect that you should be able to quickly switch between different builds.

I don't think that anyone is expecting to have all classes immediately leveled, but currently the way the system is it doesn't encourage you to play more than one style. FFXI actually was better in this respect, in that your stats changed appropriately when you changed classes, so you wouldn't see things like extra pwnage when you went to fight a crab as a newly switched lancer.

I think that eventually they will iron this out, but the concerns that people have about switching out classes are certainly valid.

I don't think we ARE playing the same game. The game I am playing allows you to reallocate your stats, but not all at once - over the course of several hours to several days. The FFXI system is leaps and bounds ahead of that.

UI, **** no. Chat is stupidly broken, several different types of search are needed (retainer, player, party, etc) the maps need to show party members, etc just the normal complaints everyone else has.

those "hordes who think you should be able to do anything and everything whenever you want." Are SquareEnix.

(This is Quoted from the Official lodestone site)
"Classes
In FINAL FANTASY XIV, a player's class is determined by the arm or tool in his/her hand. The class chosen during character creation simply determines the items a player begins the game with. Players can change their class at any time by simply equipping different items they purchase, find, or create."

FFXI is still awsome game.
to be honest, im scared to go back to it, becouse i know if i do, im gona go to game that has no lag issues, no crafting issues a well established working econamy, an amazing functioning game.
and i'll leave with this brokken memory of FFXIV, being poo.
and never want to try FFXIV again.

so im sticking to FFXIV, for now lol.
i was hopeing they would have takern a few lessons learned from XI, and not make them again with XIV.

Why would you want/need to readjust ALL your points? You're not dumping every point into a single stat are you? That would be silly... unless your doing that they should be well rounded enough to change your dominant stat from str to mnd or int to vit with one re-allocation.

well i dont think that, and im sure manny others dont.
i simply think that SE needs to check that the leveling system is functioning as they wanted, and then tell us it is, or fix it. (becouse its a pretty big part of the game)
its clear to me that SE havent takern sertain factors into acount when you hear of SE Threataning to ban players acounts for using aCuring spell to gain skill ups, and doing it with Great effect.

(Tangent: now, people are going to use whatever tools SE gives them in game to level. so if they find something that allows them to level verry efectivly, they will use it.
not manny poeple would find an efective way of leveling and assume the game is broken and Report it to a GM. that would be Digitaly Masakistic. and thats a pretty big thing to overlook.)
so what els have they missed?

it allso worry's me when they relise a report of "Known issues" were they specify. 1 or 2 issues.
when we all know there's more. but have no efective way of comunicating them to SE.

So Windexy, my point: i and manny other poeple have Valid Complaints.

its clear to me that SE havent takern sertain factors into acount when you hear of SE Threataning to ban players acounts for using aCuring spell to gain skill ups, and doing it with Great effect.

(Tangent: now, people are going to use whatever tools SE gives them in game to level. so if they find something that allows them to level verry efectivly, they will use it.
not manny poeple would find an efective way of leveling and assume the game is broken and Report it to a GM. that would be Digitaly Masakistic. and thats a pretty big thing to overlook.)
so what els have they missed?

it allso worry's me when they relise a report of "Known issues" were they specify. 1 or 2 issues.
when we all know there's more. but have no efective way of comunicating them to SE.

So Windexy, my point: i and manny other poeple have Valid Complaints.


Forums are filled with Post's similar to this. I really cant take anything this person say's seriously. I often wonder what the actual age is of the people writing these. I appologize for singling you out. It is not my to degrade you in any way. Just to say to everyone out there have patience. Most of the "issues" will be addressed in time. I totally agree that there are things that need to be fixed. It will happen in time.


i know that in time everything will.
but i dont want to wait another 5 years for the to solv some basic issue's like they did with FFXI. like i KEEP saying i love FFXIV, but they have messed up pretty obviose problems.

and im 25, too lazy to spell check.
and say i was a 12 yrold. would that realy make my points of Veuws more or less worthwhile than Any other player who paid £50 for the game and £12 each month?

and yes forums are filled with posts like this. thats what forums are for. as well as discousing the bad side of things, there for colaberation and colation of the errors and flaws with the game too.
everyone has a right to put down there thoughts and feeling about the game, so everyone els can see how everyone is feeling and if there not alone in there thoughts.

if you want me to spell check everything I say, prehaps you could think a little more about WHAT your about to say?

If the 12 year old had a firm grasp of the English language and conversed as a mature human being in 2010, sure. You could substitute any age for 12, though.

Oh hai de-rail! (hypocritical of me.. anyway)

Did you udnesrtnad waht he siad? Deos it raelly matter if he msisseeplt a few wrods? No. Human brain can re-arange the letters of a word to make it understandable. This works as an advantage (as we can still understand the sentance when somebody does do a horrific job at spelling) and a disadvantage (as it's also known as dyslexia(which is a ***** to spell.. so how cruel?! Like 'lisp' having an 's' in it..)

Anyway. I didn't find your statement/observation funny or clever, nor do I expect you to find mine either. I just think its petty. (Hypocritcal statement of mine.. cos it's even more petty to retaliate.)
