As with FFXI and any other MMO's we as players will always have our Noob moments, eventhough we may know that they are noob moments, they still may just feel right at the time, until one day we look back and say..."I really did that????"
I know FFXIV is still an infant, and most are still newbs, and others haven't even had the chance to be a newb yet, and yet even still some will always have noob moments even when they are far removed from being newbs, but here are my moments:
Day 1 CE Release: I travel out to fight my first time and kill a couple marmots. I then try /heal, /rest, looks for my rest command...nothing! I then proceed to run through Grid with my weapon drawn shouting "How do you heal" with no replies. So finally I push every button on my controller, and sure enough one puts my weapon away and I start to regain HP. I ran off quietly...
I get this crafting leve for Camp Nine Ives...wherever that is...I think it was a CRP leve. I know how to make my maple lumber, so I make the, I hink 8 mapl lumber required and run out to Camp Nine Ives and try to trade my lumber to the NPC, he wont take it, I talk to him, he tells me I haen't completed the requested items yet...after trying the same things over a few more times I get frustrated and warp back to Grid. Later on I am back to crafting, and notice this "Requested Item" tab near the top, so I click on it...holy blacksmoke batman...there is my leve, and blam, there are the mats I need!
I keep making all this cool stuff, bu my retainer never sells any of it...wth is going on. So I go to see where my retainer is in Lotus Gardens, but I cannot enter, but wait theres a symbol, let me check that out...warp to market den...ok Whiteoak looks good. I get to the zone and yet another symbol pops up so I check it out again...summon retainer...then it clicks in my thick skull that my retainer wasn't selling anything cause even though "Ladyshady" is one fine retainer, she was just chilling in limbo!
Anyone else have any good nob moments?
