Howdy!

Most people I know, myself included, do have their own FFXIV friends, groups and statics but in case anyone is wandering aimless and alone on Eorzea do hit me up,  I can help with dungeons, fates, mount farming, raids, whatever or start a flame war of why you love/hate Graha tia.  :ozwomp:

Nice!  :unite:  I see both of you guys are lacking the horse mounts from the base game trials extreme, I can solo those if you want :D You dont even need to stay alive, just roll for the loot in the end!

Or any other thing you may need help with, really!

You guys are on different servers but on the same datacenter, I am the one waaaay on another datacenter but I can travel over there, no problem!

I've never played it before but have been meaning to check it out, so no time like the present! I'm just signing up for a free trial so I don't know how far I'll get but we'll cross that bridge when we get there (or not lol). Do you guys know if I can transfer any progression to the Steam version if I do decide to upgrade? And do you have other tips as well?  :ha:

you can't transfer iirc but you can get the free trial on steam too as a seperate listing if you haven't already signed up!

i wouldn't worry about how far you can get because the free trial is seriously huge, like i know the whole "free trial up to level 60" thing is kind of a meme but they do literally give you the entire game and first expansion with a couple social features removed for free, i know a few people who played several thousand hours on free trial

my only other tip then for starting is don't skip the cutscenes! at least for the main questline. after the base game the story gets stupid good for an mmo.

Thanks, that sounds good! I'm in the process of making a character, do you have any tips on what class to pick or any other semi-permanent decisions to consider? (For instance, which world to pick?)

certain worlds have a bonus XP boost if you join them bc they're new and need filled, theyre called preferred servers i think so go for those if you want the xp boost! the story gives you more than enough xp to get one job leveled even without it though.

as for jobs, just pick whatever you want! if you don't end up liking a class you can unlock every class just presuming you have the right level and expansion to take on the quest (all the base game ones are level 1 but the expansion ones are higher level) and just switch whenever you feel like it. i think you can change class from level 10? you'll be there in no time anyway. out of the classes you can pick at the start of the game lancer/dragoon (same class, the base game ones just digivolve at level 30) are my favourites but i also like arcanist. arcanist is good because it has a weird split path that shares level so you get a healer and a dps leveled from 30 up.

also note that every class starts with a slightly different storyline up until around level 15 in the story. it's nothing huge and i don't think any of them are really better than the others but bc of the city they begin in arcanist and marauder are more limited in where they can go at the beginning of the game.

pretty much everything else on the character customisation screen is entirely cosmetic, and if you end up not liking your character's appearance for some reason you get a free character re-edit at the end of the base game storyline, so don't sweat it too much!

When they say "its free up to level 60" they really mean it, the game wont block you out once you reach level 60, you can still play you just wont level up anymore but you can level ALL jobs up to 60 so that is indeed a lot of gameplay.

Also the story of the base game is really boring, at least for me, its the weaker writing of all expansions so dont feel bad if you have an urge to skip it

The 3 most polarizing opinions on this game:
1 - whether or not to skip cutscenes
2 - if you like certain very specific NPC or not (wont say more cause spoiler)
3 - and if lalafels are the devil incarnate or not (lalafel is a ingame species of child-like dwarfs)  :ok:

I don't currently have my sub since my household is going through some rough financial times, but I'm fully hoping to get it going again once things smooth out!! I have two characters I actively play on [but I typically use Sacha to DC travel if needed]!

Also I'm not much to fight over G'raha but. I clearly have very strong feelings on Emet-Selch I'm more than happy to get into (:

Sacha Delafoise - Adamantoise [Aether]
Moriko Oshiro - Malboro [Crystal]
