    Finally cleared the second boss that is character creation. Saving the Character Presets from the beta saved me a whole lot of time.

    reading the launch day patch notes a bit closer

    "Global Chat has been added to allow players to communicate with others in other worlds of the same server region."

    so it sounds like NA west and NA east can just never communicate?. boo urns

    Is there an attack move command in this? Move and attack being 100% separate actions feels very strange after years of Diablo and it's derivatives.

    Hopefully the queues clear up a bit. The countdown to get in has been slowing down here quite a bit and the game sometimes just crashes while you're waiting in queue.

    Auto attacks are so minuscule compared to actual skills this wouldn't really be much good even if it existed. Plus most/all autos are set combos with animations and everything.

    Trying out the Shadowhunter and so far the controller feels a lot better. I can see ranged units who need to aim, the mouse and keyboard being better. Too bad I didn't get very far before it crashed again.

    I've been doing all the matchmade dungeons on hard and they've been easy peasy and then morai ruins brought out the big guns and boss wiped my party first attempt. Oof

    I'm on a 9-year-old machine with a GTX 970 and it plays fine so far. Not perfect framerate but fully playable.

    Yeah, runs fine for me on an old i5-4790 with a GTX 970 (16 gb of ram)

    As you level, can you decrease you're cooldowns? I'm finding there is a 3 second delay or so from my last skill to my first. Maybe I just need to dodge out.

    There are cooldown reduction tripods on some skills, yes. Though really I'm not sure how often they're actually used in builds. I think as you get more skills and swap to an actual build it'll probably smooth that out a bit anyway?

    Can you rearrange your UI to have your skills more center of the screen?

    Holy hell is it ever frustrating to try to keep track of six different cooldowns by glancing down when the game also expects me to dodge telegraphed attacks.

    Yikes, so queues are not getting better. I just tried to jump in and I was over 6K. Took a shower and made dinner, only dropped to 3K.

    Logged off for now to take a break and eat dinner (also to relax the eyes before FF14 raid tonight)

    Game is fun? Playing Sorceress, made it to level 18 and just hit the second continent. Combat feels nice; I like that Sorc can just kinda make things explode + chaining spells together to keep stuff knocked sky high is fun. Following this guide for a leveling build; it's working fine so far. In no real hurry so I'm going pretty slow and just taking my time with stuff like side quests and the social links.

    There are a whole lot of systems that I don't really get yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

    I was a bit worried about levelling as a bard with it being a support class but nope lol my skill upgrade trees all also include a “blow shit up in hilarious ways” option so it’s been fun times and I’ve just hit 30

    Yeah I feel fragile, but can still murder things real good

    question for those in early access: is the beginning of the game the same as it was in the test version, or do you actually do the class-specific tutorial zones that they just showed you a movie for when you created your character?

    Prologue is still the same as test. The classes all get their own intro video, but the actual playable part is the same for everybody

    They got rid of the class specific thing for all regions a while ago. Apparently the current one is a lot more connected to the overall main story than the old class specific ones used to be.

    I tried out most of the classes on the new server without a queue. The Strikers is a natural fit for a controller, and I really love using the stick vs the mouse click move. While it's probably impossible due to the number of key's involved, WASD movement over mouse clicking seems like a more natural fit.

    This has got to be the best mmo release day ive ever experienced. Sure I had a delay but that was steam. Once steam fixed itself the game didnt seem to skip a beat with all of us logging on in a huge wave heh.

    It still isn't the full release. The servers will be under a lot more stress when all the people who didn't get the founder pack get to play.

    Yeah I know. Headstart. It is still one of the best mmo release days ive ever experienced as with the small buy in I would say a large portion of the population jumped on today. I mean steam charts had it at 500k today. Pretty nutty.

    You know never in the history of video games has anyone playing one ever gone "Oh i need to /emote or play a song at this character, how clever and enjoyable!" and i don't understand wtf it's still a thing. And all over in this.

    as like, secrets? or just part of a quest?

    cause ff14 does that as parts of quests, but that's because ff14 gives a shit about the story and it's a way to involve you in it

    As part of quests; but it's just such a terrible way to make you involved in it. to me at least the jankyness pulls me way more out of the story than it would if they did it via text dialogue. Every time i hit one it just pulls me out of the game w/ the solid jank.

    It did the same thing to me in ff14 now that you mention it, any time i hit one i'd just let out a heavy sigh and go "oh for fucks sake not this again"

    Made it to 42 before I decided to call it a night, I love a support class that's not just a healer and paladin is like the perfect encapsulation of what I want, it's great.
