Is that just a wrap for a standard keyboard or is it somehow functionally better for FFXIV? It doesn't appear to have very many buttons / functions beyond a standard keyboard. How are the keys?

It's just a cool collectable thing I got.

However...I plan on getting another keyboard that is literally just for FFXIV, as in like each key is printed with the actual in game function on it. Haha.

"Ok, I need you to press Control + GFin and then alt + HFan then tap the JAsy XIV key 4 times"

I'm pretty sure you could give a comptuer typing newbie an anurism if you made them try and learn with that one.

I got mine from moegallery. I made the image in photoshop and they custom made it for me. The keyboard itself is fairly standard, nothing amazing, but I am happy with it. :)

I really thought about getting a Naga or the Logitech version of the Naga for XIV, but I've always been a controller guy. I'll probably try KB/Mouse one day, but I'm good for right now.

guess there should be a "v" in the FFXIV :o

I was going to play with a controller as that was the only way I played 11, but having played WoW and other games I did get to learn my way around the keyboard...Well not really, as I do own a Nostromo and Naga and use them in every game I play on PC.

So far I've found this game plays pretty well w/ KB&M.

I had my 360 controller plugged into my PC when I first started FFXIV, and it popped up recognizing it right away, so I gave it a shot during Phase 3. Played the vast majority of Phase 3 with the Gamepad. Then on the last weekend of Phase 3 I switched the Keyboard/Mouse. I found targeting to not be as easy as on the gamepad (whichout trying to click on targets that is).

But the biggest thing that makes me prefer the Gamepad over the Keyboard/Mouse:
With the Gamepad, I can have my Camera facing forward, Run backward (out of AoE and skill ranges, etc) and still freely press my hot keys, all at the same time. Popping skills, running backward, and looking forward. I haven't found a Keyboard/Mouse setup that will allow that (without a special mouse that has a keyboard on it as well). When I played KB/M, I felt so slow and inaccurate moving around during battle to avoid skills and spells, because I either had to use the mouse to do the movement (Annoyingly) or stop using my hot keys and use the WASD movement.
