Hello all, a quick question if I may.
I have been playing FFXI since it's launch back in 2003 and FFXIV since Alpha a couple of years back.
I played FFXIV on through Alpha, Beta and the painful final result. I stuck around for a short while then retired.
I decided to come back when I got a Beta invite this time around. Originally, I had pre-ordered the collectors edition of FFXIV and because of that I got some special in game items, hermes shoes and a onion helm. I noticed my characters still existed on a server and still had those items.
My question is, when the final game comes out after Beta will my original collectors edition be enough? I'm not paying for the game twice just because it was so terrible they had to remake it.
My next question is, I saw my characters still had all their items on the server they were on, unfortunately it looks like it has turned out to be a JP server. Is there a way I'll be able to transfer these characters to another server?
Final question is, once the final game is up and this Beta is over, will I get to retain all the items I originally had? And will the new characters I create get Onion Helms and Hermes Shoes?
Thanks for any help. Much appreciated.
