Just a matter of efficiency... but it would be great if when I have a piece of gear selected, not only does a window pop up to show me the stats on that gear, but also a window next to it that shows my current gear stats.

I think this is a fairly common feature in other games, and I have found it extremely convenient when implemented.

Obviously, they are focused on the server issues for now. I'm just thinking about the potential in future updates.

Yeah, they need that ASAP. Really annoying. Takes a whole bunch of buttons/menu switching just to compare two items.

A lot of people have already given feedback about it, I think.

F it. If anyone is able to post on the OF here is a on going list. So totally copy and paste, I don't even care about cred. It just needs to be known and posted there (I assume legit people would see it at the OF, rather then a popular fan-site as this).

1) One Time P/W. I have one, I like the extra security. It would be really nice if I didn't have to use it at every log in. To borrow from another game (WoW to be precise), you only have to use the One Time P/W once a week, unless you log in else where, or IP change. This seems like an easy option to add. Only require my One Time P/W once a week, if I log in on a different computer, and/or on a different IP.

2) Item compare. Simply put, to be able to compare a possible upgrade to the current item equipped via a side-by-side window, or a list of what Stat +/- one would get if they equipped the item.

3) Forced Dismount (option). This is for people who have completed the quest and tokens (seals) to obtain a summon-able mount (Chocobo, Coeurl, etc.). While mounted one is not able to attack or talk to a NPC without first dismounting. How about an option that will do just that, dismount you when you use an ability (not Auto-Attack) on an attackable target or right click on a NPC's quest/mission icon.

4) An easier way to find information on what is being sold on the Market. I have to create a list of my goods, go out and search to see what it is currently selling for, and then put them in a retainer at a competitive price. A window that shows what the current item is going for while talking to my retainer NPC could the process up and inform me if posting said item is a good idea (aka: to many on market). This may be an option I did not know :3

Edit: more to add (ran off to eat with family before they beat me)

5) Chat Box scrolling. If I scroll up, for some reason in any chat channel (say, FC, LS, /t, etc.), if something is typed by someone else the chat box drops back to that new line. Basically I can not scroll up to re-read if to much is going on to fast. Only solution I've found is to extend the chat box to fill the entire left side of my screen, and I do not like that at all.

6) Hit box. Not sure what to call it, but I'm having a really hard time targeting targets (monster). I basically have to click on their name to even target them. Clicking on the body does nothing 90% of the time.

Forgive me if I misunderstood this one, but when I go to sell an item on my retainer, there's an icon to click which shows the item's recent market history. Do you mean aside from this?

I definitely agree with the others! Especially the item compare. I think I remember it being said somewhere that they're looking into adding it, but I don't remember where so I can't link, sorry.

If this is an option already, awesome. I did not know of such market history when selling my items. I just put what I thought was fair game, to find out I over priced by a lot.

I read on reddit that this was already planned for a future patch. It's a staple of MMOs now, I don't see them leaving it out for good.

Just a tip... but I figured out that I can go to my character page on loadstone and have that pulled up on one monitor and shop at the AH in game. Its a lot quicker to compare gear that way. Even on a single monitor in windowed mode it would be quicker to have Loadstone pulled up to check your current gear when you are shopping for new stuff. I'm diggin the Loadstone character page. FFXI had nothing this fancy.

EDIT: Never mind. The page doesn't update enough to be very useful for this purpose. You may have to log out and log back into the game for it ti update... not sure. But its been hours and still hasn't updated the new gear I added. Oh well.
