I'm having a blast probably not keeping up with the pace on levelling and story progress though. D:

For those of you who actually got to do beta and/or played 1.0. Do you guys have any tips to throw out for others that didn't get to participate in beta?

Having a great time! I feel like it's Xmas in August. I thought I would give crafting a try this morning and now I'm hooked. =)

once you get to around level 16 crafts you'll notice you'll need to gather materials since the supplier doesn't sell them btw

Everything seems really smooth before the df died actually. Really having fun and people i've met so far seem cool.

As far as tips, unlock your stuff first (chocobo, wards, etc) before worrying about a second class. And you can buy decent low level stuff from the markets to fill out your equips.

Haven't really got any tips, I'm still getting to grips with it myself. Progressing with the story is a good idea though.

Keep on top of your quest log. There's a maximum limit to the number of quests you can have active at any given time, and if you don't finish them you'll find yourself unable to start new ones eventually.

Finished all your quests? You should have gotten a hunt log from your guild master. Open that up and get to killing. These mini quests will net you exp bonuses after killing the specified monsters. If you encounter a monster you can't find, it means there's probably a zone outside the city you haven't explored yet. Go forth!

The NPCs with the red lock and key over their head indicate you're not high enough to do their next quest. Get your **** to leveling. Generally, quests unlock every 5 levels or so.

Good tip, for those of us just joining (not from beta), What are the unlockables, level requirements and locations?

Game is great. Period. Just started my new char as a lancer in Grindia. Glad I did this because it totally feels like an Eleezan state... super pumped to play today.

level 1 starting guild quest unlocks hunting log after done

level 10 starting guild quest unlocks the ability to swap classes after doing a small talk quest on the other guilds

level 10 main story quest unlocks inn room and levequest, doing the levequest first quest unlocks guildhest

level 20 main storyline quest is required in order to join a grand company.

crafting, gathering, fishing logs are unlocked when you enable DoH, DoL and Fishing(each guild you join unlocks its own crafting/gathering log)

Things i hate about this is.

1. Leve no longer provide material for crafting. So those want to level crafting MUST level a field craft which sucks to the core.
2. Field craft is horrible. Degraded version... i want 1.0 version. or more exp on it. The idea not seeing nodes when you aren't on the job make it worse. so you have to be on the job to look for them. Switching job hurts timer on skills
3. too little quests to support leveling. Hate to rely on leve and repeat fates or grind.
4. Leve limit is @ 50...should be larger
5. Teleport cost gil ...i rather they put aminus system back seriously i don't have much gil.
6. Limit of armory chest especially weapon
7. market still won't let you buy single item from bundle sales
8. I actually like retainer market back in 1.0 for some random browser surprise but keeping marketing system is ok too.
9. i want Bazaar from FFXI
10. Give me back Behest
11. No mean to form alliance yet (at least i don't know how)
12. and lastly, remove armors from quest rewards...it make crafting for low level or maybe high level pretty useless when you can't sell armors..what is the point of crafting?
13. job switch timer... is a terrible idea It isn't like i can switch job in battle.

Coming from 1.0, I guess it is a good thing you weren't required to buy a new copy (-;

This was the first MMO that I've pre-ordered in many years. I really like the variety of things you can do (crafting, multiple types of adventuring and even gathering is entertaining). Hopefully this one will be my home for awhile.

wrongfei you complain that having armors as low level rewards makes those low level crafts useless and also complain that levequest no longer give crafting materials, but if they did give those, wouldn't that make gathering useless?

I'm only upset over the fact that my friend cannot join the same server as me. The gameplay aspect is perfect though. The way they are handling servers are terrible. They should at least give players on those servers a friend pass or something. Heck, I'll pay real money for the friend pass... just something come on.
