2 New Recruits! (Cause: the positive feedback on update)Follow

As the title says, I just bought two copies of FFXIV, one for my friend and one for me. After the positive comments on the most recent update, I had to give in.

Any suggestions for what server we choose? Any "I wish I knew this when I first started" tips? We both played FFXI for several years when it first came out in the US.

I'm out for the weekend, so I'll be doing some good reading before I install/update come Monday.

I'd recommend going to the server sub-forums and checking it out, see if you can find a nice LS that suits your needs and then join up with them. Also I hear that Besaid is the unofficial RP server if you're into that.

As far as tips go, just wear gear appropriate for your rank. Don't be wearing r50 gear when you're r10.

Kashuan is "lowest" on the server pop and its pretty **** lively. I think the further from the noob zones you go out the more people you start seeing. Gyshal, which i was on before, seemed dead to me too tbh.

Rab is fab.

suggestions:

Pick 1 DoL job and at least 1 DoH job to get into right away - it will help you raise your physical level - making it easier to play a DoW/DoM job. For super easy/super cheap I suggest FSH/ALC cause you can now make fish into shards - so in the future if you want to rank up other crafts you should have a lot of shards to get you started. Alchemy also has one of the best R10 crafting abilities available - Preserve.

I found fishing to be slow going in terms of people wanting stuff from me but now I pretty much have people willing to buy a significant amount of what I pull up.

Just a note, I've been on Besaid since CE release and I have never once come across anyone RP'ing. I think those guys keep themselves to themselves so don't let it put you off!

Heh, I want to hate and say 2 people just got lied to, but I'd be exaggerating. I'd say join rab or wutai, and I hope you enjoy your time in Ezorea!

Bad move, OP. The changes are an improvement, but there's still nothing to do in the game besides crunch numbers.
