This isn't fucking Survivor. We aren't a tribe.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

Beta 4 was insane. Because it was open, the servers were extremely overloaded. Then the terrible, horrible Error 3102 began to lock people out. This led to amusing images like the following:

Image
Image

Over 10,000 players were locked out of the NA/EU servers and thus migrated to the Japanese servers. Which lead to this:

Image

(No, seriously, there's several sets of albums chronicling the entire thing available here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/92079422@N ... 142403657/ )

I had many adventures! Both on my main character:

Image

Image

And on my Lalafell that I made on a Japanese server after I was locked out of the NA servers due to 3102. And yes, her name is Pink Pansies. :D

She found Joffrey Lannister:

Image

And made friends with awesome Lalafells such as Hamburger Freedom and Chai Tea:

Image

I even found a Lalafell named Falafel Waffle (which I thought was just perfect), but about half of my screenies didn't save. :( Still, there are more screenies available here:

Early Access starts Saturday, Aug 24th and the game releases Tuesday, Aug 27th.

The NDA is now gone so I can post videos from the Beta. Here is some footage from Beta 3.

Screenshots from my first few days of play!

The fog has rolled in from sea in an outpost located in La Noscea. This particular outpost owes its allegiance to Limsa Lominsa, the city of pirates.
Image

It's hard to codify the "look" of Limsa Lominsa. It's white stone, blue water, and green foliage tucked here and there. Pirates, brigands, scholars and merchants all flock to the port city.
Image

Image

Image

La Noscea, which owes fealty to the Citystate of Limsa Lominsa, is a land of verdant beauty and amazing vistas. Yet even so, the Calamity still looms harshly the landscape.
Image

Image

Image

Image

It's said that Nald'thal, the great Merchant and Keeper of the Dead, watches over the Sultanate of Ul'dah. Ruled by the Royal House of Ul, Nald'thal figures greatly into the lives of the common folk. Ul'dah is an oasis in a wasteland, with most of its lands arid and quite bleak. The Thanalan Desert has claimed more than one unwary adventurer.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Yet, since the Calamity, strange weather patterns have begun to occur in this arid region. Yes, this is a storm in a desert.

This picture proves to me that the medieval-esque society of Eorzea has discovered double-sided tape.

Because there's no other explanation (other than the laws of physics simply not functioning!) that those puppies are staying put!

I still have not figured out where to find crafting clothing. I don't even know what to do with it in truth :hrm:

The crafts themselves make it. My gear is ~level 38.

Weaving makes the majority (head, chest, gloves, pants, and some feet), but Goldsmith (some helms, neck, bracelets, rings), Leatherworkers (belts, some gloves, some helms, some feet), and Carpenters (some feet) also contribute. Goldsmiths make sewing needles, Blacksmiths make (I believe) the hammers, knives, awls, and skillets for the various professions. Carpenters make any of the wood-based off-hands.
