    I finally got 60. WOO! of all of the levelling zones the last one by far was my fav. I loved how it looked and the music. I've finished the story quest which makes me sad I wanna know what happens next!

    It also means I can start levelling DRK as I don't need to save my rested xp ^_^

    Late to the party, but bought the base game and xpac and am enjoying it a lot actually. It's a pretty game and combat is engaging enough. Currently level 13 Gladiator. It's a bit confusing with the job stuff but that comes later apparently. Currently playing on Behemoth and tossing up whether I start a character on Tonberry when I'm able to get a spot. The ping is manageable, but it can be frustrating on the NA server.

    Any tips and tricks I should be aware of?

    Try directly before or after maintenance to get on Tonberry.

    Jobs require a main class to 30 and sub class to 15. Leveling other classes you get a big xp boost while they below your mains level. Once you get Glad to 30 you will need conjurer at 15 to complete the job quest.

    Stick to the main story as most things are gated by it. The quest icon is different to side quests.

    here is a guide of when things unlock

    If you do come to tonberry the best advice I can give is select all languages in duty finder. It means you'll mostly be put with people who speak Japanese but it cuts your queue time from possibly hours to 10-15mins.

    Got onto Tonberry today. Rolled an Arcanist but will be switching to Marauder at 10 I think. Account is locked for "several minutes" after it failing my password a few times for some reason. I've read it's 30 minute lock. That's a pain in the arse.

    Anyways, I am enjoying it and Tonberry definitely has more people on it when I'm on compared to Behemoth.

    Yes. Tonberry is a very very popular server. There is always heaps of people around. It's great

    free login for previous subscribers, from first login you get 96 consecutive hours to play as much as you can. have the month of decmeber to take up the offer. i would be tempted to use it around xmas when i get a few days off, but don't think i will, not sure i can be bothered starting all over again as i deleted my old characters.

    Does anyone still play FFXIV?

    I'm pretty heavily into it. Lv 60 WAR, DRK, WHM, with a PLD AND BLM on the way.

    Haha, I didn't even realise you had posted this! Stormblood is close, are you planning on trying out the new Jobs?

    The Stormblood Benchmark is out, for the record: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/benchmark/

    Yep! I'm dead keen to try out red mage! And my bro is levelling a samurai with me. I ran the benchmark and had everything set on max and got a very high rating. Not bad considering I had wow in the background as well :lol:

    I gotta get around to preorder the digital CE. I really wanted physical CE but $250 is just too expensive. Especially when I was dumb enough to pay $300 for heavensward on release and it totally was not worth that much

    You guys need to befriend a tank and healer for the queue times. I may take the opportunity to level AST from 50-60. For the benchmark, I got 5600, but I'm running at 1440p, which seems to make a difference.

    I was disappointed I missed the Physical CE, but it sounds like that was a good thing? Even the digital CE seems really steep for a mount and a weapon, essentially

    Have you done the Savage Raids?

    If the statue is anything like the heavensward one it was tiny. To give you an idea I paid (assuming the game alone was $60) $240 for the box, a tiny statue, a book, and a blu ray which was a bunch of ads and nothing worth watching

    Totally not worth it. I still feel ripped off by it :/

    No the only raiding I've done is the lfr type raids. My latency isn't good enough and I'd just be a burden by dying to stupid stuff

    Good to know. I liked the idea of the cloth map, but I might be able to get that seperately at some point.

    Have you tried any of the VPN software in the vein of WTFast? I use Mudfish and it brings my ping from 200ish to 130. Totally good enough. I've done A9S-A11S as Off Tank.

    Or just play DRG and then people expect the deaths. :lol:

    I'll have to remember to friend you when I get the chance.
