You're better off learning how to do it with a different torrent application. People are getting accounts compromised because they look for direct downloads and wind up with trojans and keyloggers. Use the torrent file SE provides with a different torrent client and you'll typically see better speeds while still getting your patch file form the exact same source as everyone else. If you try shortcutting the shortcut, you run the risk of getting burned.

which? 'cause I have opened 55296-55551 UDP, 54992-55551 TCP, 80 TCP and 443 TCP for XIV as I read in other forum, and it is as it is.

Oddly enough, my ports have always been configured and I've always had good luck with the patches. Now I'm crawling at 90% with like 2-11 local and 0 remote connections. Smiley: confused

Even using a third party client, it's slower today than it has been with previous patches.

I would like a direct download too.

Because my ISP throttle P2P downloads and even when everything is properly unblocked, it won't go faster than 30KB/s (that's the limit from my ISP)

Using utorrent, that is at 1 hour now, but I only just started it, but since I started it the patcher is getting higher speeds too and reports 5 hours to go.

The best and safest way is to torrent it yourself. I've posted the instructions in this thread.

This took 20 mins to download versus the predicted 5 hours in the FFXIV updater client.

Torrenting it myself is useless if the Update client is already reaching maximum speed my ISP let me reach with P2P download.

Direct download would be 600KB/s for me, while torrent is 30...

and SE still wants to do ONLY p2p UGH. my connection simply rejects torrents, so unless there is a ddl I am unable to patch my game (or at least takes several days to do so If im lucky), I have done all the opening ports stuff and using other torrent clients, its just a no go form my connection.

I really hope someone has a ddl link otherwise I am sol for playing XIV again =/

I'm only at 16.5%...
When I get this downloaded, I'll throw up a direct download link.. It will be a SLOW link (maybe 10KB/sec per user) but for those people who have terrible ISPs that are blocking their P2P traffic, it would be a life saver..

Just give me an hour or so to put it up.

I would give a comparative to how much better that is than what I get with the p2p client, but 0 isn't divisible so...its infinitely better than what I normally get?

Please

Use this only if you are having problems with your ISP downloading torrents
OR
Use this only if your patcher has been stuck at a certain % for more than 10 minutes even after restarting it


This link will be SLOWER than running a regular torrent. So again, only for people who are having problems.
