How the **** do you get up after a KO? How do you send someone a tell. Square Enix seems to think everyone has been playing FF games since birth I guess, since the manual covers NONE of the basic game directions.

Sending a tell is "/t firstname lastname".

next question, the unpronounceable shorty in the guildhall says i can turn in my leves to her. How does that work? She has an option to get more, but doesnt say anything about how to turn them in.

Why don't you, you know, try to actually figure things out rather than "DERP DERP GIVE ME ALL THE ANSWERS"

I did, but this is miles away from the 10ish other MMOs Ive ever played. Theres is virtualy NOTHING intuitive about the interface or gameplay. They're also not listed on 'the lodestone' which really would have been a great place for the answers. Oh, and thanks for being rude.

Proving once again, the best, and worst part of MMOs is having to play with other people.

try this link, it's stickied to the top of the forums, about 4 or 5 posts in is info about the game itself...
edit: if you move the scrollbar about halfway down you'll find stuff that would prolly help you.

As mentioned above, the way to revive after KO is to use the Return option in the main menu. Sometime when I die, it actually says in the chat menu to use the return feature, but not all the time (idk why). Also if you use the Return function when you arne't dead, you can teleport back to your last spawn camp at a cost of 2 anima instead of 4 anima.

Also when you are talking to comeone via tell, once you /t "name" the first time, pressing CTRL+R will automatically fill it in again for another message to the same person.

In regards to stats:
•Strength: Attack
•Vitality: Defense + HP
•Dexterity: Accuracy
•Mind: Magic Defense + MP
•Intelligence: Magic attack
•Piety: Magic accuracy

You can find mroe beginner things on the Wiki here -> http://ffxiv.zam.com/wiki/Sephrick's_Beginner's_Guide_-_Basics

Hope that helps

Thanks very much. I don't recall Totonawa telling me to wait 48 hours, but that explains my problem.
