    Slow Dog Noodle wrote:I just pre-ordered so I'm in too. This game is looking good. This will be my first go-around with a mmorpg as well, so I hope the learning curve isnt too steep. I'm one of those people that usually go with a somewhat obscure class. I think the monk class looks pretty cool from the pics.

    Being new to the mmorpg, I'd be interested in some tips as well. Are there people who play that don't use the chat feature at all or is is pretty much necessary? Is there a lot of down time as you're waiting to get a team together? If I can't spend 20 hours a week playing am I going to get left behind?

    Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to playing this.
    You mean the text chat? Everyone uses that. 

    Wait times for grouping is pretty short. The new 'duty finder' feature will make the waiting times even shorter.

    No, the game has tonnes of content for all levels. And with 'level synching' for higher level players means you can do dungeons and FATE's with your friends no matter if your friends play it more than you.

    Hope this helps.

    Is there traditional questing? Like for WoW and stuff? I don't want it to be like GW2, where there was one quest and it was difficult to level. .-.

    There is the main quest, side quests, local quests, FATE's, Skirmishes, Hamlet defence, Leve quests and Dungeons for all your levelling needs.

    There was an error with the PS3 invites so they're still sending them out at the moment. Check your inbox's if you hadn't received an invite yesterday.

    Got the invite as well. Currenlty going through the activation procedure.

    It's horrible though. S-E forums don't work at all and the damned site refuses to remember my password. I already registered and everything, now I have to link S/E account to my PSN account, which I dunno how to do and their forums don't help one bit.

    So I think other than Videos, Bugs, Music, and Sound. We're able to disclose everything else, iirc.

    @Sentiel : You link your PSN and SE accounts together once you've downloaded the game. If you've got your SE account authorised for beta then it should do it automatically.

    I think it's overloaded tbh.
    Everything takes ages to do and nothing seems to work.

    If that's so, I owe my modem an apology, cos I kicked a few times.

    The Servers are going up and down. The first couple of weekends will be stop and start, but it'll get smoother as it goes along.

    Also yeah I think account management and the forums are just overloaded with people right now.

    Feel free to post as many as you like. Especially ones of the scenery too. They can be added to the OP then.

    So I finally logged in and took a LOT of time creating my character. Then the game asks me in which Wolrd I want to play in.
    Group NA/EU was offline. Unable to retrieve data.
    Group JP has ALL of the worlds full, so the character creation screen won't allow me to finish and so I had to scrap all of my work.

    Kinda pissed atm.

    Lots of people are on the linkshell mumble chat raging. I'm just doing other things till the servers come back up.

    Still the rest of today and two days after to get stuck in.

    Aha, so there are actually NA/EU servers. Good. I was afraid I'm gonna have to wait till someone from the JP servers bites the dust.

    Thanks Onionbro. ^^

    I'm going through the registration process now. The square site is definitely slow. Hopefully i'll be able to download the beta and get a character going tonight.
