    Nah, really. Do yourself a favour, and buy a story skip potion for ARR, and get into Heavensward. It's for your own good..

    As a freshie, I' concerned that when I get to the first MSQ part dungeons that I'll end up with players that have 0 interest in story - and finish the dungeon while I'm on a cutscene (I've no idea if this could actually happen tbh)

    1 tip for those leveling crafting or gathering jobs: yes materia is not needed to level those jobs but god do help especially cp and control materia (gp and perception for gatherers)HQ items give more exp. And you will really need it when you start doing special turn-ins called collectables at lvl 50.

    Personally unlocking chart is so helpful, thanks for sharing, I had no clue it existed, also I didn't know that all those quests with + unlock something, so now it is nice way to come back and unlock what I missed out.

    All she did was say everything the male FFXIV reviewers said months and even years AFTER they did... But she's got tits and pullable ponie tails so it's definitely much better advice

    Actually the fastest way to the walking sands is to teleport to horizon and walk or use mount.

    Here's another one. If you picked a character option that you didn't liked (i'm looking right at you voice options) and don't feel like re rolling. You get a free fantasia at the end of the main story quest

    The only time I used story skip was after I defeated ultima weapon and entered the filler to hevensward so I bought a arr story skip and I entered hevensward as my ninja then did the rest as my Sam.

    Thank you so much for the video. My BF and I just purchased FFXIV Complete Edition. I've played a lot of other MMORPG's but never got around to it. I think I'll be pretty hooked and so glad to see helpful players and the novice network you spoke of. We will likely join your discord shortly. Great video, loved Picard of course!! :)

    I do have one serious question, what are cooldowns? Every tanking guide video I see says I gotta use them to be an effective tank, but noone explains what they are and how to use them properly.

    So, i'm playing the trial version of FF XIV, just got at LVL20. Correct me if i'm worng, first i have to buy the game on Steam and after i'll have to pay monthly ? That Shadowbrinnger DLC is needed ASAP or i can wait and buy it later ?

    You get 30 days free with the purchase of the full game then monthly sub kicks in.

    If you decide to play a healer, don’t be afraid to vote dismiss for a tank with trash gear, you’d be surprised how many are out there, or a WAR tank, those are trash in general and should be kicked anyway

    I plan on playing this again soon since I've been researching more on the game and what it offers(I tired like every MMO out there o_o and this 1 seems to bring the best to the table),also got to say I'm glad I came past your video even though a small ch has quite some info and good video content, I like the enthusiasm you put in your videos :)

    MSQ below 50 is what is wrong with this game... and why I quit the first time I played this game. Gamer's I know keep saying it's great once you get farther and explore the non-story related systems, so I'm trying round 2 this week and exploring JPgo for tips to help. This Video is Great and useful. But I keep seeing "the story is great", objectively it's not; compare it to Hobb, Jordan, or Sanderson and it falls flat on its face. I'll concede that 14 at least has a story and its actually in the game, which beats its competitors. But its like watching a discovery writer go off the rails every third quest and gives little in the way of a compelling plot. MSQ is pulling teeth

    The novice chat is horrible, The mentor's impose there own rules in the chat and will kick you from it if you don't do what they tell you. Me and my friend tried to recruit people to play with on it and the mentors kicked us from the chat while they were talking about masturbation and a bunch of other things.

    I just started the free trial yesterday. Was contemplating play this game for a while - even though I am a long-time FF fan. Definitely overwhelming. I picked Conjurer as my starter class and now sitting at Lvl. 5. Definitely should have started playing it sooner. It's my first MMO! Are there any other online resources for beginners? Thanks!
