    Roegadyn seem to be the least common, especially female Roegadyn. That said, the cat people look surprisingly good, and the Elezen just look weird to me. Your standard Hyur also look fine. I personally won't play a Lalafell, but if that's your thing then go for that.

    Also, I'm mildly peeved that female Roegadyn cannot be as tall as the males. Still fun talking to a Lalafell NPC though, it looks like their little necks are going to snap as they stare up at me.

    I think Elezen are actually rarer than Roegadyn last time I checked.

    Yeah, someone posted a poll graphic from a few weeks ago and Elezen and Roegadyn were neck in neck for least played (or least desired to play depending on how the poll was phrased).

    Well, I still can't decide. Hyur WHM or MRD...? Heals or tank? It makes it much easier on me knowing I could eventually do both. But the stats aren't the same, so I guess I need to pick caster or melee and stick with it.

    Also, why do you guys say the PA FC wont stick together?

    Stat increases and gear are by class so you don't actually have to pick one and stick with it

    Have you tried out either of the classes in beta4? Because that could make your decision easier.

    edit: other points to consider: starting CNJ means starting in Gridania. MRD start in Limsa Lominsa. Forest or Seashore? Kan-E-Senna or Merlwyb? Woodsmen or Pirates? Miounne or Baderon?

    Some games end up with a lasting PA presence, others get abandoned really fast. The community as a whole is very picky about how they spend their time, with all these shiny games around to play! With any new release folks are weighing their interest and the potential of a disappointing migration.

    GW2 is an example of the community sticking around. Neverwinter is one of it just kinda drying up.

    So who has gotten their subscriptions? Also for those that have, how did you do it?

    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    yo fyi the stats are by class, so when you level up as a caster class it's got its own stats, separate from the stats you'd get as a melee class - you level them up separately and can switch back and forth, picking up where you left off

    I don't think the subscription is available yet. I don't see a huge point on signing up for a subscription just yet, unless you really want the veteran rewards I guess? You either have the 30 days from the purchase or the 14 days from Legacy, so no rush.

    Am I the only person who still calls all these races by their old FFXI names? Galka, Hume, Mithra, and Taru roll off the tongue a lot easier than Roegadyn, Hyur, Miquo'te, and (groan) Lalafell. Elvaan/Elezen I'm kind of neutral on.

    I'll call the Roegadyns Galkas cause it rolls off the tongue easier.

    Hyur, Humes, whatever will always be Humans because come on, wtf SE?

    Taru / Lalafell is a tough one. Both names are fun to say.

    Mithra I'll call Miquo'te cause I like the way that rolls off the tongue, like peyote. :P

    Elvaan/Elezen (like the Humes) will always be Elves to me.

    Saw this on the maintenance screen:

    As of August 23, 2013, the following issues have been confirmed in FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

    - An issue wherein the companion action "Choco Medica" does not recover HP properly.
    * We plan to address this issue via a hot fix as soon as possible.

    - An issue wherein the "manor sentries" that appear in the instanced dungeon "Haukke Manor" become stuck and prevent players from progressing through the instanced dungeon.
    * Please be sure to fight the "manor sentries" on the second floor of the Haukke Manor until the issue is addressed.
    * If you encounter this issue, please open the Duty Finder and then select "Leave."

    - Due to a critical issue that we have identified in the instanced dungeon "The Wanderer's Palace," the instanced dungeon will not be available at launch.
    * Please note that while the instanced dungeon "The Wanderer's Palace" will show up in the Duty Finder, it will be inaccessible. Please refrain from joining the instanced dungeon until the issue is addressed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    - An issue wherein if a player completes a primal battle while KO'd, the option to return to your home point will not appear.
    * If you encounter this issue, please have a party member revive you or open the Duty Finder and then select "Leave."

    - An issue wherein if a player joins an instance via the Duty Finder, they occasionally become immobilized after leaving the instance.
    * If you encounter this issue, please contact a GM by selecting the "Support Desk" option under the system menu.

    - An issue wherein certain cutscenes viewed from the "The Unending Journey" located in inn rooms will always play from the beginning.

    - An issue wherein the icons on the market boards occasionally appear incorrectly while a player is experiencing lag.

    - [PlayStation®3 only] An issue wherein a player will occasionally lose control of their character while fighting a certain monster in the instanced dungeon "The Sunken Temple of Qarn."
    * If you encounter this issue, please log out and then back in.

    - [PlayStation®3 only] An issue wherein the game client may freeze if a player attempts to log out while their character configuration screen is open.

    - [PlayStation®3 only] An issue wherein the cursor location of the Crafting Log will occasionally appear in the incorrect location and prevents the players from controlling their characters.
    * If you encounter this issue, please log out and then back in.

    - [PlayStation®3 only] An issue wherein a player will occasionally be unable to take a screenshot.
    * If the screenshot fails, the message "Screenshot failed." will appear.

    So, I still don't seem to be able to download the actual game client. I have the launcher, it's 100 megs, it won't pull down anything else. When I log in, it tells me

    " No valid or active service account is available to play FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

    Proper registration through the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Mog Station is required.

    * Users participating in early access must also complete registration by August 30, 2013. Using the code enclosed with your package, please complete registration through the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Mog Station. "

    I registered my preorder code for PS3, so I'm confused why I'm not getting the "wait for early access" message other people are.

    You can do what I did.

    "Pre-order" the game, get the code, redeem it, activate the account, cancel pre-order.

    More specifically:

    - I have an account from 1.0. I have been using this to access the beta.
    - I preodered the PS3 version of the game. I got a code from Amazon.
    - Went to http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/, logged in with my account to register my Amazon code.
    - Registering the Amazon code gave me a PS3 promo code, which I was able to use in the PS Store to download the digital copy of ARR.
    - Downloaded the PC Launcher from the link in the OP
    - Logged in using the same account as referenced above, but it doesn't seem to recognize that I had a preorder code and should have early access.

    I did this, and now you need to launch the game on your PS3 and follow the steps to

    A) link your PSN and squenix accounts and
    B) add the preorder code to your existing 1.0 service account

    then you can patch on the PC

    @F87 I'm trying to decide, too! CNJ or GLD for me, just not sure which. I played CNJ a bit during the beta and I actually had a ton of fun with it. Running the first dungeon was fun and I always felt like there was something for me to be doing. I didn't get much of a chance to play GLD, but I like the idea of tanking.

    Guess I'll just have to try both!

    Also: I'm super jealous of all you early access folk. I'm non-legacy 1.0 and the wait until Tuesday seems like it's approximately 5,000 years.

    Can't wait to get back in the game!

    Kan-E-Senna seems like a classy gal and I like the the Hyur, so I think I'm pretty sure of what I want to roll on Sargatanas!

    Now, do we have a FC planned out? Surely someone can save a spot for ol' F87.

    It's actually separate stats for each class iirc.

    The only current class this effects is Arcanist, since Summoner will be Int based and Scholar Mnd. Everything else currently, don't hesitate, but if someone is maining Arcanist off the bat, plan ahead.

    They've said there will be ways to respec, but it won't be quick/easy so you're not gonna be switching between Scholar and Summoner on the fly (and have optimal stats anyway, you'll still be able to do it for not-raid content fine probably).

    Guys all the raid / voice chat on the previous page scared me. I've never been a part of a guild in a game before. I usually just game with my buddies.

    A couple of them are playing this with me, how will the FC deal with that? Can my buddies join up despite not being pa members?

    There's 3 of us total, so clearly we need to have jolly fun times with a bigger group to get the most out of this.

    But yeah, I've never "raided" before. I'm probably pretty terrible at this whole mmo thing. Please don't yell at me!

    World record times seem to be around 4 hours for FF1, 2h30m for FF2, FF3 around 40m, and FF4 with 2h30m, so if your real good you could fit most of that in time.
