Final Fantasy 14 Legacy Question

EpicentEpicent Pierre Part, LAPosts: 647Member
Hey all. I have been out of the mmo game for awhile now. I do however feel like getting back in. I have my eyes set on FF 14 version 2.0. I recently got access to my account and it says legacy next to my name. Does this mean I can get into beta? Also, can anyone link a good site to catch up on the lore from version one. Any changes that are coming would be good too. I have been reading but I know this site can be a great source of info. Any help would be appreciated. Also.........Im looking for a guild :)

    thank you. I am pumped. After being dissapointed by gw2 I am hoping this comes through.

    Oh yeah, the link doesn't say what F.A.T.E  is but they are like dynamic events.

    if they worked the game again from the ground up how did they make it so fast? just a couple of years seems crazy.

    I think because they had a big team working on it but mainly because they already had a solid foundation to work off of. I can tell you this I was in alpha here recently and it was the smoothest running I've ever been in. I don't think that breaks NDA  I hope. : )

    That doesnt break NDA. so, I can have 40 characters on my account now? I could only have one in the first version. Also I only have to pay 9.99 a month? this just keeps getting better and better. If you could explain how the payment system works it would be a GREAT help as it has always confused me for ff 14.

    Its 12.95 usd for one character on every server 14.95 usd for six on every server or if you have Legacy status like youself only 9.99 for 6 characters on every server. I'm Legacy to love that bonus

    The link you sent me stated 8 characters for normal players and 40 for legacy, honestly Im good with even 6 characters for legacy. that seems awesome to me. I also read that the old servers are still up. do you know if thats true. if legacy players can still mess around on the old servers for now or am i mistaken?

    gotcha. I also heard that open beta characters will be saved. I am going to start on one of the "new" servers as my old character was only level 15ish. Any idea when open beta starts and if the character data from open beta will actually transfer over into the actual release of the game?

    I also look forward too it? does anyone have a guild already? Are you guys rolling on an "old" or "new" server? i am thinking of making a guild website for a "new" server and going ahead and renting a teamspeak or ventrilo server.

  • VanadromArdaVanadromArda Hot Springs Village, ARPosts: 445Member

    I'm willing to entertain a new server, just because I want to experience it fresh. If I can, I'll try to important my old character to whatever server I choose to benefit from it's presence if there are too many timers.

    As for guilds and such, I'm always available on Skype ( loltemperwolf ) if anyone wants to chat about that. ^^ I dont have any guilds yet, and nor do I really aim to run one -- but I wouldn't mind being an asset.

    I think they are giving us too many characters on Legacy accounts. It's nice and all but what am I going to do with 8 characters on a server? I will use 2 or 3 max and only plan to play on 1 server.

    I agree, there isnt really any point in more than one character, unless you really like to try all the races, but I find the idea of mastering every class on one guy the most appealing feature of XIV. I get to be an alterholic without the hassle.

    I would say the opposite is true, there was no solid foundation, which is why they had to re-build in the first place. New engine, servers, UI, all new open world design, cut-scenes, the works, which makes the time it took even more incredible. You can say however that it saved time being able to re-use certain assets from XIV 1.0, such as character, gear, mob and building models/textures, and dungeon layouts. That really is all I recognise in alpha so far, and I agree that it's the smoothest alpha I've ever seen. It was because the previous version ran so badly I wasnt able to play long enough to get legacy :(

    Shouldn't anyone who played the game during its initial launch F2Pish stage have legacy status?

    They should, but they gave people a year to give a damn and actually pay 3 months worth. It was sort of a test to see if you REALLY wanted to help them rebuilld.
