Is there point to make a new character now?Follow

#1 Aug 22 2012 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent
I was thinking about returning to FFXIV! (considering I have been paying for it since they started billing I think it's long over due lol)

I would like to start a new character and play from the start with my boyfriend, doing all the missions etc together but what I am wondering is if there is any point making a new character now (and not wait until 2.0).

Does anyone know if you get to customize your looks etc when 2.0 comes out because I am sure there will be more options etc. Like I know my boyfriend would like to play a male Miqote, will he be able to change to that after the update if he starts as a Hyur now?

I remember there was some talk about it in the past but I haven't been keeping up with the forums etc. for a long time now.

Also, which was the server that has high EU population now?

Thanks for all your input! :D

You will be able to change race with the release of 2.0, the rest I can't help you with sadly.

It has also been confirmed that you can NOT change your nation.

Hi I'm currently levelling a new character a thaumaturge (the one in my sig) but I plan on creating a new character once 2.0 is released. I enjoy staring new characters and currently using this playtime as a lesson in learning all about the game.

Hiya everyone,

I haven't played FF14 for about a year and I decided to play again since the new Realm Reborn is coming soon.
I noticed the game will become unavailable from the 11th of november 2012.
Is that the reason it doesnt let me create a new character?
I updated the game, baught some crysta and updated my SE account but when i click on "New" to create a new toon, nothing happens.
Help me please :)

Hey there,

Due to FF14 going down for the new ARR, They will have the servers open for quite a while.

However because they have stated that the servers' final save is November 1st, Square probably has prevented anyone from creating anymore characters, If anything you'll probably have to wait until the re-release to actually play create one.

Either that or Square is having problems, But that would be my best guess, Sorry =/

These links will give you information on the cease of services of the current version and then information on how they will deal with ARR. What would answer your question, is the link called "Upcoming Schedule of Operation and Billing Procedures for FFXIV".

Thank you for the replies it was very helpful! :)
I will just have to wait until ARR is out to start a new character.
My BF is going to get the game on his PS3 when it comes out, is there a World Pass like in FF11 so we can play together?

There is no such world pass at the moment, Not even server transfers. Though this will probably change a few months after ARR

It shouldn't be a problem though, No server is locked, and Ps3/PC is cross platform so you should be able to play without having to worry about a World pass, Just be sure to roll a character on the same server.
