I'll give it the 1-month free through buying shot. Then post again on how I like it.

Might I suggest you try a Japanese server for starters. I tend to find myself more comfortable in the company of JP players.

The NA/EU servers can be a little chaotic in that the players go about things more aggressively, sometimes quite ridiculously so, like a tank charging people 1/4 million of Gils to tank certain high level dungeons... etc etc.

Whoever does that must be either dumb or desperate . There's a duty finder and FC for a reason xP

When you have waited hours for Amdapor Keep as a DPS to no avail, stupidity and desperation do come into play...

Well I'm already set on Hyperion. I'll be starting out with Conjurer since it seems like a good class to start with to me.

Titan I can sort of understand, as that fight has more to do with finding a party of people who knows what they're doing....

but AK??!!

I've queued solo for AK as black mage on many, many, many occasions. Even at extremely off-peak hours, I've never sat in queue for longer than 45 minutes.

I usually just queue on scholar these days, because it means instant-15 minute queues instead of 15-45 minute queues. Eos does all the work, though, and usually unless I get a bad party, I'm not healing, I'm putting up dots.

Conjurer huh. Hopefully, you can stand the sound of rocks when you're soloing

I just hit 30 Archer, 15 Pugulist yesterday and completed the quest to become a Bard. Loving the Archer-Bard. I generally dislike playing a bow class on any MMO because majority of the time it's just stand, point, and shoot with not-so-cool skill visuals. With FF, Archer-Bard is kinda broken since we can kite and shoot behind our back without having to stop, but I'm not complaining. I'm one of those that like to play on the move even if it's just jumping up and down xD. The skill visuals are awesome, could be better, but definitely better than what I've seen in many other MMOs (Cabal Online is the only exception haha). I kinda was expecting Bard to be a little different. All it really is, is just adding a continuous buff....was expecting Bard to be more...extravagant I guess ? But I'm not letting that get to me, just playing as an Archer is fun and my DPS is great.

I was told that I should have joined the Adders FC or whatever it's called, but I didn't know what to choose before and picked the Maelstorm one and I'm already ranked Colonel. I was told that the Adders gear are more focused for Archers and I noticed that the higher end gear from Maelstorm don't even have any Dex on it. I'm guessing I should switch? My buddy said I don't really have to, but considering the gear has no Dex I see no reason to continue the Maelstorm.

Nah, I wouldn't bother. GC equip's aren't that much better than compared to normal dungeon drops, and as for high level equips, it will soon be outclassed by WP/AK items (WP/AK are level 50 dungeons that drop level 55/60 equips, respectively). The only worthwhile GC equip to get is probably the weapon, but again, your going to get a better weapon soon enough too.

This is one of my complaints about the FC/seals -- I have nearly 40k seals now, and I have nothing good to use it for. I really hope the next big patch is going to increase the number of items available in FC shop.

I recently crafted a HQ vanya hat, and ended up blowing all my gil (down to 4 digits lol) for melding... How are you guys making gil these days? I prefer to sell craft/gathering items, but the market is getting worse day after day (more competition -> less price). I used to have monopoly over HQ dagger soup, selling at about 3.5k per one of them, and after couple weeks, the 10+ people showed up in the market with price around 2k... All these gold sellers/bots, always breaking the market. Hopefully SE will find some lasting solution to them..

I'm still quite new to this, but food/meals are quite pricey. I'm lucky to have my buddy craft me them for free, but some of that stuff is expensive, especially the HQ ones. I believe in the upcoming patch they're allowing the meal to persist after dying, which would save a lot of money and at the same time it might make food/meals more appealing to buy.

I got into a WP speed run for the first time and boy is it super fast. I thought 30 minutes were normal but just finished one under 14 minutes, and that was with some mishaps too. With higher gears, i guess its possible to do under 10 minutes

I've been making money by mining shards and selling them. It seems slow, but it's really not that bad. When I finally get done gearing out all of my alternate jobs I can start selling philosophy tome crafting materials.

My Free Company got our first Titan kill last week (and several other kills after, though Titan is so goddamned latency-sensitive we can spend an hour and a half wiping on him if the servers are laggy) and tonight we cleared Turn 1 of The Binding Coil of Bahamut. Our ranks are swelling to the point where I'm starting to organize things for a second Coil group.

Running a guild is lots of work, but it's sure satisfying, especially when we progress. I didn't expect a Caduceus kill our second time in!

I'm thinking of transferring to Hyperion, because alot of the 30+ fc members, most of whom are now my buddies, are planning to move to Hyperion (a bit of friction between FC founder and some members...). Is there any congestion at Hyperion? Such as having to wait to log in during busy hours, etc.

Hyperion has minor login queues occasionally, though I only started recently with hooves so not long experience on it, but some of my friends on the server says it's never longer than a few minutes really at worst according to them.

So after playing for a bit. I've gotten a big grasp of what stats mean, and after reading a bit. I've got a good idea on how to proceed. I'll just have to see with how I've learned will help me with the first dungeon. Are these dungeons/whatever named the typical 5 mans?

dugeons are the typical 5 mans like most of the other mmos. tank and spank. some have very simple mechanics which are easy to avoid. the sunken temple of qarn is the only fun one i've done out of all of them. that dugeon requires some teamwork compared to the rest.

FFXIV ARR dungeons are either 4 men or 8 men dungeons......
