How and when will you be starting ffxiv arr (Poll)

DzoneDzone bowling green, KYPosts: 351Member Uncommon

I'm kinda confused if I wanna just start my main with phase 4, or maybe start a new character when the official launch begins. Not really shure how big a difference will be between phase 4 and official launch.

 

I'm wanting to start on a fresh new server, but don't really know when to truly begin my character yet.

 

How have ya decided when and which type of server ya are going to be starting your main's on.

    I starting to think its just best to just start at release. Mostly to experience the whole thing as it was meant since theyre keeping the VO out and even some classes/jobs until release. Really bad idea IMO as Open Beta is a huge promotional opportunity for the game and the missing content is pretty significant to its presentation.

    I will be starting on a Legacy server, Excalibur. I figure its going to be nice to have some players around that have been playing a long time and really understand the game. Thing with the jobs, there will be players everywhere as it is with the way jobs are made up. The only disadvantage I can see is an economy that may be inflated at first but as soon as crafters start leveling it should correct itself. I figure it will likely be a more mature community.

    I dont want to start on a legacy server because ill get jealous of seeing people run around with AF armor

    When is the VO finally getting implemented? Still nothing until full release?

    Make no mistake, launch is phase 4. Early areas will never be as populated as they will be once that phase starts and if you are like me and you like to level with the first wave of players....well you havr no choice but to start with phase 4.

    You're missing the obvious options of "sometime substantially after release" and "never", which for most games, are the two most sensible options.

    It's the FFXIV section of the forum. Why would you be viewing this if you have zero interest in playing the game?

    It heartens me to see  mmorpg dot com Guides looking out after the sensibility's of others

    I rarely play games at or before launch.  Games are usually a mess at launch, and since I like my games more polished, it's usually best to wait some months after launch to pick up a game.

    As for "never", one reason to check on a game forum is to figure out if you're interested in it or not--and sometimes in the process of doing so, you'll conclude that you're not.

    fresh new server phase 4 (possibly early access depending on what's going on).

    I'm a legacy player but I deleted my character as I realized I sort of lost site of what it was with all the new revamps.

    I think I'd prefer to start at level 1 and discover the character/class all over again.

    All ready to start and figure to stay on the server me and the guild I am in have been playing on so far. Hopefully the server we are on wont be infected with any "goonies" or other annoying trolls.

    I'll be starting fresh, new server.....I want to experience the game all over again for the first time.  I skipped every singe cutscene and quest text so I can immerse myself once I can keep my character.  The games changed so much, I'm going to play it as a new game...

    phase 4, fresh server. 

    I'm opting to scrap my legacy characters. None were too high and I am really enjoying the low level game this time around. I have all new ideas in mind for character concepts too.

    phase 4, fresh server. Hope they don't change their minds and then WIPE!

    Phase 4 and a fresh server.  Wish I could transfer all my crafting crap from my 1.0 character at least.
  • AmbrosiaAmorAmbrosiaAmor Miami, FLPosts: 915Member

    Legacy server and start the level 50 content right out of the gate.

     

    Oh and phase four of course!

    Phase 4, fresh server (unless my buddies want to join a particular legacy free company as they have been talking about).

    No point in not taking advantage of phase 4, even if some things won't be in yet. Also, I'd rather be on a fresh server: more people around my level (so easier grouping as I level) and new to the game (so hopefully the chance of elitist snobbery will be slightly lessened).

    Pretty much early access is when I'm playing Final Fantasy XIV 2.0
  • LexinLexin Ellenville, NYPosts: 702Member Uncommon
    I have a 1.0 character but no desire to play it so going to start a new character during phase 4 and play with friends.

    I've got a couple low level 1.0 characters but I will be starting over on a fresh server at the beginning of phase 4.  Nothing against legacy players but I prefer starting the game with players who are new to the game like me.

    Let me get this right, phase 4 beta chars will still be in the game at release? Will they retain their levels or be down to level 0?


    =-D Only on a forum can optimism be called bad and pessimism the good thing =-D Welcome to the internet and forums.

    Nah, its not the same. There is a big difference between watching as the story unfolds and just watching it all again to hear the VO.

    Phase 4 is Open beta with NO WIPE. There is only a posibility to be wiped: a serious bug.
