"You cannot equip any more accesories"Follow

Can someone explain this one to me? I am currently level 13, pug rank 11. I have a necklace, two rings, two wrists, and one earring equipped. It won't let me equip another ring in the third empty ring slot. Is this a level-based thing? If so, what level/rank will I need to equip this gear I bought that's now sitting around useless?

If you look at all the accessories you have equipped they have a slot cost associated with them. You only have a limited number of "slots" to fill with all accessories equipped. In other words you can choose two 2-slot rings, or one 4-slot earring.

It's the same as equipping actions and traits. Each action costs a certain amount of action points etc.

Each accessory has takes up a certain amount of accessory slots, you only get 12. As seen from bottom right of your ring area.

Ahh, thank you, I see it now. Still, it seems pretty crappy to give us all these slots when we can't possibly use them all.

Customisation, silver accessories and higher take 3+ slots each. 4 rings for accuracy or 1 earring 1 choker 1 ring 1 wristlet for allrounder, your choice, your game.

I'm not crazy about that design choice either, i was looking forward to having lots of cool accessories. Oh well. Im an archer so theres no real choice, ACC or GTFO.

I thought it was just a level thing. That it would increase with level. If not it's a pretty bad design overall I think. Hopefully they unlock it through some quest or some kind of way later on in the game.

So far in several levels I haven't seen slot budget increase whatsoever.

Bad game design.

But looking at all the other OBVIOUS bad game decisions made in FFXIV...hardly surprising...

I like the concept. Rings are currently for accraucy/stats, earrings are for evade/ele def. as a Con, I really dont need defensive stats as much, so I can trade 2 earring slots for 2 more ring slots. It is a bit annoying seeing empty slots on my equip screen, but I do like that it offers slightly more customization. I prefer it to being stuck with say, 2 rings, 2 earrings, 1 choker, 1 bracelet.
