that just shows that most people are not used to being beta testers ;)
Well ask yourself the next 2 questions:

1) Have you played the beta.
2) Have you applied feedback back on the things you've tested.


Doubt the majority can say yes on both of those and only if you answer yes on both question you can say you've participated in the beta. If both are no you didn't participate at all and if one is yes and the other is no you simply abused the opportunity to play the game for free.
Since I didn't have the time to really commit to part 2 I simply said to myself to not participate at all.

Starting to love this more and more everyday. You should see the amount of hate topics on the fact that beta phase 4 is only 2/3 days and the level cap of 20. People really expected to be able to get a lvl 50 character ready before the early access even started :P

What did I say. I expected this miles away.

Flipping Tonberry Kings are to be included in A Realm Reborn. Not much of a surprise since it wouldn't be a FF without them, but anyone here who's played FFXI knows how monstrous they were in that game. I can already see the wipes now. Tonberry King uses Everyone's Grudge, and all 24 players die instantly.

Oh yeah, and very menacing sheep. Killer Rabbits that aggro you out of nowhere from FFXI come to mind as well.

PSA: The Support Team says you cannot receive the Collectors Edition items on Phase 4 characters even when they carry over to release unless you create a new character.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I was right when I decided to start only at early access ::)

Yeah I've been following that discussion after I found that info. Good thing my Legacy 1.0 can obtain the items.

So Legacy characters can get them but Beta 4 characters can't ??

I'm at work right now so I can't open the beta forums (no security token at hand), but did they turn something back because I can't see why a 1.0 character can get those item but a Beta character can't ???

Both can get it. The forum won't load for some reason, so I can't quote that post.

Yeah both can get it. Even character that you create after linking the items to your account get those.

I just received a mail from SE with the correct dates for beta phase 4: Friday 16 August 2013 at 9:00 GMT to Monday 19 August 2013 at 9:00 GMT.
Figured I might as well post them here, just in case.

Seems I've almost found my sweet spot on the settings. Seems running the game on my tv in 1360x768 gives the sweet spot on the font size. Any smaller would create an overlap on the various hotbars and any bigger would prevent me from reading the fine print from my chair :P


Still need to fine-tune the actual graphical settings as I've sometimes got pieces that won't render in time resulting in them being rendered fully green, the'll pop in the right rendering shortly after but that creates this annoying flashing. Guess an decrease of people in the nearby area would help out as well, the servers are currently a bit to crowded for my taste. Especially after having played on a more under-crowded server during 1.0. A quick look on the beta forum however gives me reason to believe that this issue will be resolved shortly as a lot of people only seem to play it because its free right now ::)


BTW Chaos I found out the linkshell lady. Seems she's indeed located in the old Gridania part, was originally looking around the Adventurers' Guild as that is where she was located in 1.0 ;D
