#XIVLive Q: Will you be able to convert equipment crafted with old recipes into materia?
A: Yes. The old recipes will disappear from the game, so convert all your beloved gear into materia and add it to the new equipment.

Q: Which Grand Company should I join? As the equipment rewards are different, I am having a hard time deciding.
A: There will be more chances to earn company seals coming and grand company balance overall will be adjusted. So don’t worry too much about rewards. You should pick the grand company you think is a good fit for you. Also we will not make changes in a way that friends in different grand companies can’t play together.

Q: Will there be a delivery system?
A: We will definitely be implementing a delivery system. Unfortunately, it’s something that is going to take time and I am unable to provide a date for that just yet.

Q: Do you have plans to add mandragora into Eorzea?
A: I will ask the character team if they can add it to their list!

#XIVLive Q: When do you think the cool/**** looking gear will be implemented?
A: We are currently in the process of working out the details. I want to be sure the class gear is implemented first. We will try to implement the cool/**** looking gear by 1.22 or 1.23.


#XIVLive Q: Is there any information you can provide regarding the impending doom of Eorzea?
A: Out of the 4 keywords that I provided earlier in the year (FUN, LIVE, REBOOT, REBUILD), the keyword “LIVE” will have a huge impact for this event. You’ll notice many changes that will occur in the world of Eorzea. I would like you see the changes for yourself in patch 1.19 and then use your imagination for what’s to come.

and that's it.

I just reposted it from Twitter. Someone posted earlier that you needed to be logged in to see the Q/A. So I posted it here for those who don't have it.

Maybe next live letter/QnA they should look into a better way of translating ^^;;

OK, so we have the translation of the warm-up, but what about the actual substance of the Q&A? It's not like those five basically useless questions and answers were... oh...

edit: apparently there's a page two! And a thread!

I would have to say that this was interesting among other things. Sure we got the retarded questions, but from the ones that are worth 2 grains of salt it seems that Yoshi-P has a clear direction of were the game is going even if he's not dishing out the details.

Cant wait....................

I actually forgot a few near the beginning because they started posting frequently. Here's what I missed.

#XIVLive Q: It looks like the game is on the way of becoming another FFXI. Is this intentional?
A: We received a lot of similar feedback when we implemented the auto-attack system. No, we are not intentionally trying to make the game similar to FFXI. We just wanted the players to be able to play the game at an easier pace.


#XIVLive Q: On the upper left of the white board, there is a highlander female, Miqo'te male of course, but are there going to be any other races added?
A: Once we add the aspects that are missing, we will consider the costs and look into adding more.


#XIVLive Q: When do you think you will be able to revamp the linkshell system?
A: We have been receiving a lot of feedback regarding the linkshell system. We will try our hardest to get this out as soon as possible. We are actually having a meeting today to discuss how we can improve the system!





Q: Will you make it possible to remember the set actions when switching classes?

I think it's interesting that he said 50% of the content is complete. They clearly don't think this game was anywhere near ready for release, and that does give me hope that they are taking their jobs seriously, and plan to add enough stuff to the game that reviewers (and, hopefully, players) will someday take a second look. Sometimes I wonder 'what's the point?', but I suspect what we're seeing is the "live" (their words) development of a game from what was essentially a well-polished tech demo to release-ready.

But it doesn't sound like they're ready for a PS3 release anytime soon, or paid subscriptions.

I remember reading from the Twitter translations that they were trying to get it into 1.19 but, didn't quite make it. The post went on to say it should be included in 1.19a !

Why does the new field zone have what it looks like 2013 at the top right? :D Thanks for the pics!

So... Archer is Bard? My bard is almost 43 :D

We hope you understand and will support us in our endeavors to provide you with the best game possible, hopefully before Ragnarok comes in 2012."


I can only hope that you are being a facetious nanner-head. Someone please confirm that this is nonsense?

1. Moogle Sword?
2. Bard Bow-Harp
3. Dark Knight maybe?
4. Bard
5-7. Much better maps ^^

And, no to the other poster...your Archer is 43. You will likely need to unlock Bard somehow, no?

From what I understand when they release the new jobs later, if I'm past 30, I do a quest and whatever job level I am automatically is that level :D

CON/ARC are my highest right now :P

This no NOT a fact, SE will implement P2P at PS3 launch (unconfirmed) as well as after the game is at 100% (currently at 50% as Stated by Yoshi-P). Any P2P news will be front page on the Lodestone, as of now no such news has appeared.

Personally, I hope it isn't like that, but I can definitely understand what you're saying. I guess we will find out after a 7pm CST? ^^

I'm really just jealous that you're gonna have a Bard whereas I'll be whatever MRD gets...lol.

#XIVLive Q: What kind of other mounts will there be aside from chocobos in the future?

A: When we did a survey on the forums, we received a lot of requests for "Magitek Armor" as an example. Things like that will be a good reference going forward!


Woah! This makes me so happy, the fact that they once again mention Magitek Armor bodes well :)

Although I hope they do something more than act as a mount. Wow, loving this :)

Considering I posted that on September 29th ( you know, 5 days before the "Live letter" ), I find it surprising, as well as extremely entertaining, that neither of you could manage to catch that little fact.

********** I just got served. I would have found that very entertaining as well. I'm blaming it on the excitement, anticipation, lack of coffee...and doing a "wake and bake" this morning during the Live YouTube thing.

I knew when the post was made, thus i knew in was false. I follow SE news a lot closer than i do zam posts. As such i would highly recommend not leading people on, never know how a joke can end up messing some one up.

Quick, everyone bombard the forums with magitek flying gunship mount thingies from the intro cutscene! We need Magitek flying gunship pvp!

In all seriousness, if they go into personal flying mounts (i dunno how i feel about that yet), those things would be kinda cool...

As for the live letter, Everything they showed looks really cool, even though I got owned on the whole Archer/Bard thing.

I missed the discussion about the maps, but based on his hints I'm thinking that a full world redesign is coming as part of the imminent danger in Eorzea.

Even though he has fur lined boots/gloves and horns, I don't get that impression. Maybe if there was more fur, less plate and the horns were actual horns instead of metal.

Flying mounts couldn't exist in a world with invisible walls, inaccessible areas and zone lines to the degree that this one has, and will have more of in the future. Not to mention flying mounts really create a whole slew of problems.

I wouldn't mind free company airships though, and hope to god they plan to implement them eventually. But mostly for quick travel to key locations, and perhaps use in certain boss battles and special company leves. Free flying would be impossible really. Unfortunately.
