at 49, i'd say wait. I mean, if you want to relevel then have at it. I've already started over once, going from 1.0 to 2.0 I started a new character. Won't be doing it agian.

Up to you. Do you feel like wasting the time you already spent? Although, you did learn how the game runs, how to change and use the UI, etc., so its not a complete waste.

Can you level another job, craft, gather, explore? There is a ton of stuff to do, What boss fight are you talking about? Well that doesn't matter unless ALL boss fights are like that but even then, there is still a ton of stuff to do.

I would wait because I hate the idea of losing time and effort.

I think this is really more a question of how invested you are in the current character and how much you're willing to lose. I know I went through the same question when I rerolled on a new server to play with friends because of all the server lock issues and a bit ways out from server xfers. To me my highest class was 35 and not 49 and only just beat Titan in the Main story. I felt I could reroll and not feel like I wasted too much time on the server I was leaving.

It sounds like you certainly have more progress than I did when I rerolled, but nothing that can't be regained really. However, Server transfers could be a lot closer now than when I went through the process. Your situation is a bit different too, I went from a NA realm to a NA realm, it wasn't because any sort of latency or implayability.

Just my experience, but in reality this is a question of what you're willing to lose and build back up.

I'd make a new character on a NA/EU server and see if the lag dissipates. If it does, your have your answer. If not, the lag could be something else. I'm not sure where you're located so that's important also. Either way, this is your choice. I know I couldn't reroll at your level, but that's me. I'd stick it out until they let me transfer.

thanks for the help guys as far as lat goes its server side i play on the east coast and there no lat issues on NA
(ie when the big red aoe attack are on the ground when i move out of the way i dont get hit vs jp server where if im not moveing 100% of the time ill get hit)

i think i will wait and see the relvling isnt to much of a issue just because i have dont the story up to that part yes but i only have 1 job lvled and since i dont like alts the taru i make is gonna get 100% of my time but i think i will wait it out thank you everyone

Question are we getting a free one due to horrid launch we had? I hope so.

SE has not said free server transfers. The assumption is they'd have to offer it free for a limited window since it was their screwup, but until they say one way or another it's just a logical assumption and not a fact.

Well like I said, I wouldn't mind a one time freebie, since our launch was pretty bad, and I think it would be a good move on SE's part to do it since a lot of players did end up getting divided over the world lock outs and such. Keeping players from hanging with their friends and forcing them to go to other worlds. Quite a bummer.

My fear is that if they did free transfers its only going to be off the current servers and onto a brand new one.

Id like to get on a different populated server, might be willing to pay for it.

I cant see them allowing free server transfers to just any server though..stuff like that is usually done off populated servers and onto new ones...not sure I would risk transferring from a populated server I don't really like on to a dead server.

I would reroll...here is why.

I am giving this a 95% chance of happening..since ive seen more than one server transfer "events" take place on games not hurting for players (applies for games hurting on players too though)

They are going to open a new server(s) and offer free xfer from a current server to those new servers ONLY.
It would make no sense to allow transfers between current servers...all that will happen is the less popular servers will drain out, and 4-5 already popular servers will go back to 1017 error.

I want off my current server as well...its nothing but small FC's that rely on duty finder to progress through endgame, you got a LOT of players who flat out refuse to do simple things like use the FC voice coms and watch a youtube guide before running instances (ive had a lot of randoms in group that say they will not use voice comms when its offered to make things easier...also had a shocking moment where a tank said he wont watch the youtube guide on his first time and wiped our group 3 times before it fell apart) perhaps its not just my server, and perhaps its ps3 players refusing to leave their counsel game safety bubble and into the real world of pc gaming norms...

So as it stands with me, I want to try my luck elsewhere...im almost debating rerolling a character that's deep into endgame and all my other leveled up classes...but I know they wont give a free xfer across current servers, if so I would be shocked...

Community is a big part of these games.

I suspect certain servers will be closed to server transfer.

And OP, you should wait. So close to 50, and no doubt you pressed hard to get there.
