    Sounds like my problem as well. I'm not sure how I can attack if the game keeps shouting at me "This action can not be performed" whenever I try something as my conjurer :?

    Anyone come to grips with the system and is successful enough to tell/show us how it's done?

    Not really. I attempted some solo leves as a conjurer and got absolutely flattened. Attempted the same leves as an archer and was much more successful. Casters have a lot of issues and this makes me sad, because I want to be a caster. Really badly.

    Okay, playing as a caster and keep dying to shit because of the unbearable lag - I get 1 attack to the mob's 5 or 6. I also have no idea whether a spell is actually going to cast or not when I hit the button. Anyone got any ideas on sorting this out? My chat box looks like this:

    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    The naked mole's attack hits you for 43 points of damage.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    That action cannot be performed.
    The naked mole's attack hits you for 41 points of damage.
    etc...

    The same thing was happening to me with the Naked Mole leve. I thought it might actually be related to the mobs, because I wasn't having that problem on any other leve.

    I'm sure it'll get fixed in the release.
    Along with everything else that sucks about this game /eyeroll

    Getting a little tired of hearing "it's a beta" about all the crap in a game that's like 2 weeks away from launching.

    So yeah, the UI in this is worse than FF11's -- and that's saying something, cause I've seen DOS batch files with better UIs than FF11.

    We'll give this a try again now that I've got a nap in me.

    On Wutai as Jorana Nioben. My IRL friends are pressuring me to go to Selbina though.

    Edit: Apparently the Configuration menu option causes the game to crash.

    You will need a new key from the website.

    The client will work fine if it is updated.

    Boo. I looked for whoever earlier in the guild and they weren't there :(

    Also quick question. Do i need to go to a pugilist guild or a mining guild to train stuff? I haven't seen either here.

    It's a beta 2 weeks from release. Aka a stress test. Things won't be changed much.

    Things I don't understand that annoy me - Why is the chat box so godawful ugly? Why do I not have the option to just reply to someone, instead of HAVING TO TYPE THEIR WHOLE GODDAMN NAME TO HAVE A CONVERSATION? A problem which is compounded by the fact that there's a character limit of approximately one medium length sentence, so if I have anything substantial to say it's almost not even worth the effort.

    That's not even getting into the lag (stress test related), the crashes (NOT stress test related), the software mouse (WTF?), and other general UI clunkiness.

    This does not look like a game that's ready to be launched this month. It looks like a game in the early stages of beta testing.

    "Treasures of the Main" says to go to some place called Bearded Rock, outside of the Zephyr Gate. The map has neither on it. Any suggestions? South sends me to a EQ Bazaar ripoff, north doesn't go anywhere.

    It took me a bit to find it, just keep looking on your map til you find the way out of the city and it's right there.

    It took me a bit to find it, just keep looking on your map til you find the way out of the city and it's right there.

    I figured it out. There are some ramps going downward.

    This stupid city is just like Kelethin in Everquest, without the bonus of seeing a bunch of idiot Legolazzz fuckwits going sailing through the trees like summer doves... with anvils attached to their feet.

    So I got a guildeve, which is great, except... couldn't figure out how to start it. The obvious answer -- using (not clicking, not using the d-pad to find and use, etc -- that would make too much goddamned sense) the big "send me to an instance" crystal didn't do it. Finally found it in my Journal, but not in my main journal, hidden in a secret secondary journal which wasn't mentioned anywhere.

    Then the game crashed.

    Yeah, that's as far as I got before I ragequit.

    On a semi-related note, is my perceived "input lag" because my computer is shitty, or because the servers are shitty? I like the atmosphere and story of this game (I'm actually paying attention to the story! No MMO has gotten me to do that before), but if I can't get it to run better on my computer, it won't be worth it.

    I guessed two others but if this is what I can expect from the game I am pretty sure I won't like it come release. I am jesus they don't even do the emote so I basically have to go down the entire list to find whichever obscure one it is.

    Do this:

    Manic Miner: Furious > Laugh > Soothe

    Maddened Miner: Beckon > Deny > Upset

    Edit: My personal belief is that as a lalafell I should have simply been able to pacify them with repeated uses of panic.

    Double edit: this applies to the Ul'dah quest, which I thought was being discussed for some reason.

    Use a controller if you can.

    Controller v. mouse+keyboard makes a night and day levels of difference. I don't absolutely hate navigating the UI anymore because the controller in my hands feeling gives it that "this is limited" dynamic instead of the "why the fuck is this so horribly designed" feeling... which isn't necessarily a good thing, but I digress.

    I'm getting the sense that they don't really want to turn on the feedback option for beta due to the insane amount of extremely negative feedback they're going to receive from people who will never buy the game. It seems this has pretty much already turned into a 2-camp demographic and SE only feels like listening to their players who will buy their game despite it's flaws, opposed to those who won't because of them.


    Either way, the game is significantly better using a controller so I'll probably be playing it for the next few days to see what else there is to do. I'm kind of surprised that SE doesn't advertise this aspect in any way given the stark difference. My only major complaint is I wish your confirm button would default to targeting NPCs first, then players, but that's just a minor annoyance at worst (and something they might actually change.)

    Honestly, my "for reals" opinion is, that the problems with FFXIV are more symptomatic of Japan's failure to keep up with game development in the West, rather than endemic of all MMORPG releases.

    There is a laundry list of fundamental problems with this game and the software that even an extra 3 or 6 months of polish probably would not buff away, due to what I can only describe as "Japanese Obstinance".

    You would probably be shocked to see how very, very, little the game has actually changed as apparent to us testers since Alpha 1.
