Howdy folks! After a long absence from the game (almost a year), I've decided to come back. My current laptop is woefully inadequate. I've ordered another one but it won't be here until Friday or maybe next Monday. In the mean time, I'm very bored and would like to be as productive as I can.

The problem is that as I mentioned, my computer is terrible. But if I turned al of the settings down as low as they go, and avoid combat, I can play. As soon as I get into combat my GPU overheats and I get massive stuttering.

So I am looking for suggestions on stuff to do in game that does not involve combat. I'm not terribly interested in crafting but might do some. Anything else useful I can work on? My highest class is Archer 34. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Also, here are the specs of the laptop I ordered. Anybody have any idea what kind f settings I'll be able to run?

Malibal Lotus P151HM1
Processor: Intel i7 2760 2.4ghz
GPU: Radeon HD 6970 2gb
RAM: 8gb 1600mhz
HDD: 500GB 7200rpm

Get a good laptop cooler such as a coolermaster U2 or U3 (other brands are availible) and don't push your new laptop too hard, they no likey hot hot. Besides medium settings look just fine in FFXIV and offer you more playability and less burning smell.

thought this was stealth brag topic when i saw the specs, but then i read OP lol


Crafting is literally the only thing you can do right off the bat. You can even do some quests in them with relative ease, getting you ahead in those.
