    Their twitter says they posted an update on the forums, but I can't get the link to load. Looks like the forum is getting hammered.

    And I had just hit 20 and completed copperbell mines. The waiting game begins again.

    Apparently they just posted an in-game maintenance update and say they're bringing the servers down in approximately 20 minutes, or 3pm PST. The expected down time is 2.5 hours.

    Edit: And I think they will be deploying a patch this time. They said a couple hours ago that they were testing a fix.

    [NA] Regarding the Instance-Related Issues (Aug. 24): Follow-up 2

    The following is the current situation regarding the issue wherein players are unable to access instances.

    After investigating the issue, we have identified that the following issues are currently occurring.

    - Regarding the server in charge of connecting players to the instances.
    We have confirmed an issue with the server in charge of connecting players to the instances. An overload on the servers caused a significant drop in performance. Therefore, we are currently making preparations to further optimizing the server. We currently estimate the operation to take about 30 minutes.

    Fortunately, this process can be done without any sort of maintenance. We will be able to verify the performance of the server immediately after the optimization process is completed.

    - Regarding the error 90000
    We have confirmed an issue with the character data for certain players. These players currently will receive the error 90000 and not be able to access any instances.

    We have been able to identify the cause of the issue, but the issue will require maintenance to address.

    We plan on conducting emergency maintenance as soon as we complete the optimization process stated above.

    We are currently concentrating all of our efforts to address this issue, so we appreciate your continued patience while we work to address this matter.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    [NA] Several Worlds Emergency Maintenance (Aug. 24)

    At the following time, we will be performing emergency maintenance. During this period, the Worlds listed below will be unavailable.

    As we previously announced on the “Regarding the Instance-Related Issues (Aug. 24)” announcement, we will be conducting maintenance to address the issue wherein players are unable to access instances.

    While we previously stated that we will be optimizing the servers prior to the emergency maintenance, we will require additional time to also implement counter measures to decrease the load on the servers.

    While we estimate the time frame of the maintenance to be around two and a half hours, we will do our best to complete the maintenance as soon as possible.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

    [Date & Time]
    Aug. 24, 2013 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (PDT)

    Which cinematic? There's a couple I can think of that would fit.

    Yeup. You'd have to do a search of the relevant DoH class to see what recipes they have and what you'd want crafted. I'm mainly worrying about weaving, leatherworking, carpentry, and goldsmithing at this point.

    I've been leveling Blacksmith, and they also make most of the tools (the crafting "weapons") for the other crafting classes.

    Fun game so far despite some annoying bugs. I like that you can get exp and kill credit if you help out random people, it really adds to the sense of community. Never played GW2 which I imagine is similar, so I'm used to having to fight over quest monsters which is usually really bad opening day. Still seeing some of that with a few monsters with low spawn rates though. FATEs are fun, though a little plain at least at low level.

    I really like the way class swapping is handled, removes so much of the finickiness from FFXI. Combined with the well done armory and no vendor trash the inventory is so easy to work with. Not sure if it'll stay that way at higher level with equipment sets from 10 different classes at various levels, but its nice not to have to worry about bag space. Professions as classes is a little weird but I didn't get to play around much with that before maintenance.

    Combat is quick, interactive and fun, which is great. I'm glad the global cool down is so low, means less waiting patiently for my next attack. I haven't felt compelled to auto-attack once. Only real complaint is its a little easy, but I'm sure that will change.

    Only real problem I've had so far is my level 5 story quest bugged out and I couldn't join an instance which meant I leveled purely from town quests which I guess is a bad idea since it makes things harder on the 2nd class. I'm also sure I'm missing some game features that get unlocked by the story chain. Finished off at Archer level 12 so I figure I'll continue the story quest as another class, probably Lancer. Which class is supposed to unlock Bard now, still Conjurer?

    Haven't seen linkshell, Free Company, Airship or Auction house stuff yet.

    I was talking about this in raidcall, the boss of the first dungeon is, refreshingly, not a cakewalk tank-and-spank. He requires a decent amount of coordination by your group, and knowledge of the mechanic.
