Test Now, My Lode!
July 01, 2013

Hello all!
Fernehalwes here.

Today's post is less a sneak peek than it is a friendly reminder─the new Lodestone is up and ready for beta testing!

OH... That's a... Yes then, well...

Like I was saying, the new Lodestone is up and ready for beta testing!

Use the new and improved site to check your PC's stats or gear while slacking off at work...

...or on your phone while driving.***

***(DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, CHECK YOUR PC'S STATS OR GEAR WHILE DRIVING)

(...what you do while at work, on the other hand, is none of our business...)

One of the site's new features is the ability to attach facial emotes to your comments. Just look at all the options!

(It might have helped if I had removed my helm beforehand...)


This week, while Project Manager M and I are stuck here in Japan eating stale croissants and sipping cheap Bordeaux, Yoshi-P will be gallivanting about *** Paris to promote FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn at Japan Expo. But don't worry! We've enlisted someone from our Square Enix Europe offices to tag along, and will be doing multiple updates over the course of the show.

So, to quote the P, "please look forward to it!" (er..."them")

Fernehalwes

I have the beta lodestone bookmarked on my smartphone, and it's nice to actually see my stats first-hand while I'm away from the game, 'cause I'm a little too busy actually testing/enjoying it during my gameplay to really pay that much attention to them. Takes a while for the image of your character to update (somewhere around 24 hours, which I don't mind), but the stats update rather quickly.

As an added little extra, I like it. Not sure how many people will find a use for it, but it's a fun little thing to tinker with...

I don't know about anyone else, but I find Fernehalwes sarcastic, dry wit hilarious. The emote line was classic. Oh and also, new lodestone looks fantastic.

Lodestone 2.0 >>>>>>>> 1.0

The FFXIV site was in serious need of a revamp.

I really wasn't expecting that post to be funny, but when I reached the facial emotes, I couldn't stop laughing.

With the smartphone version, It is really helpful to check our stats while checking loot during dungeons, since there is no option so far to make easy and fast comparisons between to gear items. Also, It would be really nice if in the future we get the option to check our sales status in the AH (or Market Wall) for the smartphone version.

I checked out the lodestone, but it didn't have stuff I thought it would, like job/class abilities, and more detailed game info like fansites provided for XI, do you think that will come, or do you think that recipes, maps, etc. will all still have to be done on fansites?

Yeah, they fixed it. I had me four levels lower and my old armor.

I love that I can repair my own clothes. How kool is that?

I just did my lame traffic school for a ticket last weekend. I laughed a little about the disclaimer to not actually use your phone while driving. Had to listen for an hour about why its bad.
