FFXIV Game Queries - BeginnersFollow

#1 Oct 18 2010 at 1:20 AM Rating: Decent
Hello all

I have the below queries and would appreciate your feedback. If you have more queries, please feel free to place.

1- In FFXI, crafting can be done along with fighting. Now in FFXIV, crafting has its own Discipline. So for example, can discipline of war/magic do any kind of crafting? if not what can they do to save more gils?

On the other hand, how do disciplines of Hand get rare drops if they cant fight at advanced level of crafting? How do they get components anyways?

2- Can a character change Disciplines without loosing skills?

3- What is the chocobo icons that is displayed beside worlds? What does all 3 chocobo highlighted represent? Is there practically is world better than the other?

4- How can you toogle between tell, linkshell and say in a faster way? I know the commands but its in convenient. In FFXI, they used to have macro for communication.

Thanks

1- whatever weapon/tool is in your hand is what class you are, if you have a staff your a conjurer, if you have a pick axe your a miner. you can take them with you in your inventory and switch jobs on the fly any time outside of battle. The choice you make at character creation only determines your starting equipment, you simply have to buy the weapons/tools of other jobs afterwards.

2 Yes, just like XI skills learned are permanent

3 Realm population, 3 birdies means High population

4 I cant really answer this one.

Hi

I have read in other forums that the horrible lag in the game is one of its biggest problems its facing right now. This is happening to all server.

Also the issue of the server break down which leads to kicking you out of the game due to Error, status 0 Timed out. This issue happened once to me so far while doing levequests. All i had to do is wait for 15 min until my account disconnects from the server, then log back in again.

It's also important to note that, even in relatively lag free areas, your GUI will always lag. One of the major complaints is the sluggish GUI that requires anywhere from 2-5 seconds of wait time between pressing a button and the action carrying out. Unfortunately this is up to SE to fix so we just have to bare with it for the time being.
