Thread: FFXIV Part 2

    Default FFXIV Part 2

    In the mood for a good PvE game and playing this again for awhile to check out the xpac that came out a year ago in light of them announcing the next xpac due June 2017 which includes Red Mage. Anyone played this in the recent past?





    One thing I had definitely forgotten was the fantastic level of detail in the characters, the environment, and the interaction between the two. It's snowing (weather system), character's breath creates ice crystals, your clothes sway in the wind. You sit down? Clothing pools around your character instead of clipping into the floor. It rains? You get wet and your clothing drips.

    How much are the xpacs?

    I've been playing the Division and in that game the heavier the snowfall the more snow accumulates on your clothing such as your shoulders and your hat.

    Xpack is on sale right now for $9.99 on steam, or the bundle of xpac + original directly from the website for $29.99.

    Taolas, come out and plaaaay.

    So, we had an in-game wedding, it was pretty fancy. Our FC people attended.





    And we got this mount, which is a 2 seater and can fly.





    I'm really digging the Astrologian. Probably my favorite class now. Like the ninja though as well.

    Good shit. I'm currently paying for a PS Now account so I can cut corners and play PS3 exclusives on the old PC. So unless FFXIV became F2P, I'll pass for now.

    Is that hilarious dapper zombie / detective quest line still going?

    No, still a monthly sub. It usually goes on sale once a month or so, so you can get Heavensward for 9 dollars. Yes, Hildibrand is still on going, they just added new quests for it I think. We haven't done them yet because there is SO MUCH. Its taken a month and a half just to get caught up in main story.

    I wish you'd come back and play with us! The 50 to 60 content is very nice. They added a new type of dungeon you can solo/go in with whatever comp you want and it has 200 floors. The new classes are great too. We both love Astrologian.

    I sent you a 7 day free playtime invite back so you can check it out if you get an itch, I sent one to VK as well, cause why not?

    Probably wasted... once again having account problems with Square-Enix.

    I keep a notepad file for them because of the issues I've had in the past and nothing is working. I think the last time we played I was on account #3, which I'm 100% sure I documented correctly, literally copy/pasting to the launcher to log in, but now says account/pass are incorrect, and logging in on the site doesn't show me as having the game at all.

    What did you use to send me an invite? My character in-game?

    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    To your character in game which would (or will) end up going to the email on the account that character existed under (VKhaun Vex). You were like level 15 or 30 with almost all jobs. Most balanced alt-itis I've ever seen.

    Nope... all I have on my e-mail for the account that doesn't exist are notices that an estate in our guild was being removed due to inactivity back in December.

    Just got the invitation to return at 2:00AM this morning.

    Clicked the link -> "Enter your e-mail and PW!" -> Forgotten password link ->




    Always worry my account was hijacked, or I'm being stupid and using a site for the wrong country or some such... but when I get the invitation and use the PW recovery the invitation linked... Hard to imagine how this is a problem on my end.

    Only thing I can think is maybe it's case sensitive and your email is all lowercase.

    /edit: Yep, that worked. I just generated you a reset request.

    On a planet where sometimes web developers don't remember to cast things like that to lowercase before they validate them against saved data.
