Just got my notice from SE that they'd billed me for three months today. I suspect others will probably start getting similar notices soon-ish.

I think it was 21 free days for Legacy accounts - 14 days trial with the bonus 7 days from the early access fiasco.

Others who actually purchased the game will have another two weeks or so.

I got a mail yesterday. I guess we'll now find out who's prepared to stay and play, hopefully a lot of the whiners are now complaining the world is too open in GTA V on the Rockstar forums. Smiley: cool

Was billed this morning. Wonder if/when we'll see a pop drop due to the free trials ending.

I have a question about billing.

I download FFXIV through PS3 - PSN. At the time of download I had to link my SE account with my PSN account. My question is...will they bill it through my PSN account or do I have to register through the Mogstation also? I haven't recieved any emails about registering my billing information either way.

Just wondering if anyone knows?

Thanks,
Rummi

It's kid of cool that digital sales resume just as billing was about to start! We will see a population bump along with the drop. Wonder if Ultros will open back up?

So the next wave of rewards also went out: the wind-up cursor pet and the character rebuild potion. This has shown an annoying flaw in the mail system: you can only take all of the items out of the mail. As I have the first rebuild potion, I can't hold a second, but because I can't take the second potion I *also* can't take the cursor pet.

Grr, I guess I'll just destroy the first potion and take the second.

That said, I'm happy to pay for this game. I'm having a ton of fun. Props to SE for pulling off what many deemed impossible.

I have my potion of Fantasia on my retainer, and it let me acquire the second in my inventory. I can't put it on my retainer because of the first, but this lets you accept both without destroying one. Don't destroy your second potion!

I also received the Ahriman mount, ahriman minion, and the black chocobo chick. Is it just me, or does the ahriman mount feel slower than the others? Just a perception thing?

I think you can also have two retainers, so you can put the second potion on the second one and be rid of them both from standard inventory for good.

You got 30 days if you bought the game.

You only got 14 days if you were a legacy account holder and did not buy a CE upgrade.

Not for me. They couldn't bill me fast enough. The game is solid and I want my vanity items so today is a good day.

I have a 55 day free period.. 25 from PS3, 30 from PC.

@_@ That doesn't seem right(for PS3) since I've been playing on it since the 3rd.

Once that's over, I'm doing the monthly recurring thing, if they have that.

Yes, they did, If you read Cat's post, 21 days (14+7). The game went Live on the 27th. And it's now the 17th. So that's 17 + 4 = 21 Days since Live.

I'm fairly certain I remember the retainer NPC saying you can have two retainers (but only two.) I'll have to test this later.

Yes, you can have two. I have two right now, and if I try to get more he says "Sorry, you already have two."

I'm wondering if we'll get more later through quests. Seems like an easy way to expand storage, which they were constantly trying to do in FFXI.

Both of these need to be checked O.o If i can move gear to a retainer and get it again, sweetness. and having another retainer will free up a lot of space, i'm a bit of a pack rat when it comes to gear ^.^; never know what i might need later on a new job/class.

You don't need to level any craft to convert to materia. Just to meld it to gear.

I'm not sure how much space it really saves when I turn the thing I didn't need anymore into water resistance materia I also don't need.

Still it's good advice. Every once in a while you'll get something useful, and it beats the **** out of vendoring things for 50 gil apiece.

once bonded 100% just go to your character ability screen and select the convert/materia button, FYI, you have to complete a quest to do this. it takes place during the main story quest when you talk to the goblin about materia.

Do the quest from this guy, right click on the item, click convert.

Not entirely true, it takes you to Mutamix, but the guy who gives the quest is the one behind him. I got into the level 30's missions before I realized I had missed the materia quest.

I get now why they allowed you to convert stuff to materia before you could start melding it - because otherwise you might start having armory issues with gear you're not sure you want to give up. I went through and just zapped any gear at 100% spiritbond into materia. Chances are good I can always get a replacement for cheap if I need it.

I got suckered for 180 days. Apparently someone in our LS had a friend who couldn't create on Balmung, so who knows what the server situation is across the board. Either way, the 6 months is ok with me at the pace I'm playing.

I have some gear it wont let me put on my retainer because there's already one of them there, so it appears you can have more than 1 of a unique item, if that's what your reffering to.

correct, today was charge day for people with 1.0 accounts who got a free copy of the game and did not upgrade to a CE this go round. We only got 14 (+7 apology) days free.

Anyone who paid for the 2.0 game, be it the base game or the CE, got at least 37 free days.

I think if you prepay with Crysta it takes it. But if you have direct billing set up via credit card, it doesn't.
