    Sounds like some very good devs. Any company that listens that well to their fanbase deserves some good praise

    They really are. Us original players also get a lot of perks in A Realm Reborn as thanks for our patience with them. I haven't mentioned this in the original post since this is for new players interested in the relaunch.
    Check out the letters from the producer in the other info section, those are the dev updates on progress. And the 3rd one has A Realm Reborn Alpha footage. A lot of it!

    Good, it just helps with understanding where everything is and reading about the story etc. That was hard to find mind.

    Good , oh and if anyone is wondering where the 'Reckoning' took place, it happened at Mor Dhon.
    Also hope the video links are useful, still waiting for the Letter from the producer 4 to be put up onto youtube. Will update when that happens.

    Okay two questions, both I guess could sound dumb but I kind of have to ask out of curiousity. First, would you say that with everything this game has to offer, is it worth the monthly payment whatever that may be for A Realm Reborn?
    Second one, would you perchance know what class and/or the armor the one guy (the short black haired guy) in the End of an Era trailer/cutscene is wearing? Just looks really awesome so I had to ask.

    Of course happy. I'd recommend buying it if you're looking to for a new rpg. You have that 1 month for free and then make up your mind (that's the mmo players code silly ) Oh and I've update the subscription section since the details have been released happy .
    Second question - It's the artefact armour for the warrior job. I'll explain that further when I update that section.
    Hope this helps!

    All right thanks. Ya, I didn't jump on FF14, kind of now wish I did but A Realm Reborn looks like a good of place as any to do so.

    As for the armor, thanks for that help. Hopefully it's in a Realm Reborn because I know what I'm going to be looking for now when it does come out. XD

    Can't wait to see all the other info you are posting. For now I'll just go and read the backstory and such to know what is going on in the game.

    No problem happy . And I can defiantly confirm you can get that armour in ARR (it will just take you a long time to get it silly). All the current jobs are staying in happy .
    Will be busy for the next couple of days , but when I'm free look forward to seeing the races section updated.

    Well I'm patient and if it's really good I'll be sticking with it. I take it though that it kind of is rare or something.

    Not rare at all happy . No grinding for armour in 1.0 or ARR happy . Armour is acquired through either crafting or quest rewards! The artefact armour for each job is a reward for a very high level quest. Hence it'll take a while.

    Question: Is the loot system similar to Skyrim-Diablo where a rat can drop an ice oak staff randomly? Or is it specific item drops like DkS? Are the quest rewards random as well?

    It's specific item drops, but I don't remember mobs dropping weapons or armour really. Quest rewards were fixed but apart from artefact armour , player crafted stuff was usually better. It's why crafting was so popular. happy But all this may change in ARR. The combat system is having a huge overhaul, so the loot system might do to. I'll let you know when I know!
    Hope this helps. big grin

    Yup, in later videos you'll see him form the LinkShell 'Distant World.' I think me and Wandering might make cameo's in some later videos, it's been a while since I've seen them.
