Ok, so i bought the game at launch and took it home so super excited and like everyone else was super confused, there seemed to be so much missing from this game, so i got frustrated logged out and didn't log back in until now, can someone let me know what has been going on, has there been any improvements yet? I know there is still no AH but i'm utterly confused about how to buy items, where to buy them or even how to craft and the guides on this site are not all that helpful. I selected weaver to start crafting, where can i get wind shards? what beasts tend to drop them?

I feel like this game started out in a recession! I feel like i'm in a hoarder's house and have no clue where to start.

I know it seems like a lot of questions but i am totally lost, this game is sucking so bad but i don't want to give up on it yet. It seems like all I have been doing is killing beasties to level but not much else.

Easiest thing I can tell you to do is check the lodestone. A lot of the information you seek is there

Lodestone, the database here, and Yellow Gremlin are the places I head to when I need to know something.

Besides the sites mentioned by others - try to find a good Linkshell!
That helps a lot to get started and it also makes the game so much more fun.
What server are you playing on?

It's also a terrible idea to start out as a crafter without a gathering profession or killing mobs for drops to support it.

If you want to be a weaver - you are better off to start as a Botanist or possibly just buy yourself an axe / scythe if you are all ready invested in your character.

As others have suggested - you are best off to find a good linkshell (one that doesn't mind answering some questions for you :) )

good luck!

As for crafting you should start with guildleves - you don't use any of your own mats for it

You should check the lodestone (among other various places on the net, I'm sure others here will tell you) for information like that. For some reason, Squeenix didn't think it would be a good idea to include that kind of information on the game.
