A couple of newbie questions .Follow

#1 Jan 26 2011 at 2:24 PM Rating: Excellent
I just started the game a couple of days ago, and I'm getting along with most of it ok - I just have a couple of questions .

I started in Limsa-Lominsa , and I'm wondering where I might buy primary weapons for some of the classes where there is no guild present in my city - in particular, the tools for carpentry, mining, and botany at present .

Also, I would like to know if there is a way to search for a player online . I'm trying to catch up with a friend who also plays, but can't seem to find a way to search for his character name. I'm sure there probably is a really obvious way that I've just been missing.

Also, if anyone happens to be on the Selbina server, I'm looking for a linkshell to join . I'm currently working a lot so not able to play too much at present, but hope to become more active in the game once my workload eases off a little, and would like a group of people to natter away to when I am online :)

Thanks to anyone who can answer :)

1) to find weapons/tools for non guild cities, look it up here on zam

in the database menu under items, look for the level/weapon you want, and itl have a sold section to find out which vendors have it

2) there is no search function for players

Even easier way to get all the starter weapons is to just start doing leve's. The rewards from your level 1 leve'swill give you most of the tools you'd need to get started in the game and playing around with the different classes.

As well in Limsa go to the position where the main hall/pub is with the starter npc and the leve counter and there you will get access to your first leve and directions to the first camp outside of the city. once there you can head back to town and start doing ur rank 1 leve's

Also make sure to go into range of the aetherytes which are the cystaline objects in the middle of camp, open your menu and choose it. That will allow you to port to that crystal in the future.

I'm on Figaro server myself or else I would show you around tonight.

Thankyou, I've managed to find most of the items I need, and also to do a few leves around the town and around the nearest camp. I'm quite enjoying the game so far, although I keep forgetting there is no auto attack and standing about like a muppet getting slapped :)

The way I search for my friends is to hop onto the official site and then do a search there for the character name. You can select to search by name and by world. :)

This is the official site for FFXIV: http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/index.html

From there you just go to advanced search on the top right and then select Character Search.

Hope that helps :)
