I honestly don't understand why it is confusing. If you are able to read then you should have read through the tutorial that explained how everything works. You should have read the Adventurers Compendium at the Aetherite crystal and done your first main story line quest.
Yes, this game does not take your hand and give you missions at "Generic Town 01" and then lead you to "Generic Town 02" ad nauseam. I like that and i have not had any problems progressing or exploring the world.
On a side note, this is a MMORPG. That acronym right there should give you a hint that you want to be social and play with others. Find a Linkshell or talk to people. That should solve your armor problem as well.

At least this response would be somewhat helpful to the poster.
If you can't figure out what to do in this game, maybe you should try an easier game, like space invaders, or frogger. Those are pretty self explanitory games and don't require too much of a thought process to get by on.
If you want to try and solve puzzles, figure out problems and general trouble shoot in a game, and you find these tings fun. I implore you to continue playing. After day 2 the game because straight forward and theres not a whole ton to figure out. Good luck.
This post is all about "look at me, I'm smarter then you". Look not everyone will get this game right away. You're a real help to building the community. When someone ask for help either give it or don't bother Fing responding to the post. If it bothers you so much that someone isn't as "smart" as you and that someone doesn't get it right away, then just ignore their post.
Now to the original poster. Start out talking to NPC in your local town. What other game call qwest they call it leves in this game. What you do and where to go for these leves aren't spelled out in stone but there are guides coming out now for low level ones. Pick the class you want and search for the leves for that class and you should find some quides. You'll get SP/exp and gils(what is cash in FFXIV) when you complete these leves. From there you'll be able to buy gears or if you decide to choose crafting, make your own stuff.
As for the market. It is ,my opinion, screwed up right now. The have ward isntead of AH.You teleport to these ward at certain locations in the city your at. The ward has retainer you rent to sell your stuff. If you're looking to buy you have to go through a retainer one at a time in hopes you find what you are looking for. To sell or buy stuff you'll have to just randomly check people to see of they are selling, shout out while grinding and hope someone answer, have friends who play and you can trade, or visit the ward.
Hope that helps you some what and unlike the d*ck above, hope you give the game some chance. Edited, Oct 13th 2010 1:01am by doubleax
