    @seiryoden I all but missed the first weekend of Phase 3 - it took me all of the Friday to download (crashed twice), and then I was busy all Saturday and Sunday. I managed roughly ten hours over last Friday and Saturday, though - I had to pry myself away.

    I've wanted to try an MMO ever since seeing Phantasy Star Online before its release, but I couldn't persuade any friends to join me, so I ended up avoiding it. This time, I have a couple of friends who are interested, and the fact that I won't shut up about the beta means they've already pre-ordered :D Even if they decide to cancel their orders, I'm still going to crack on.

    That's a shame, but I think I'm probably going to roll an archer again, I've really enjoyed that. Although I guess you can switch up classes at level ten, so maybe I'll try something different this time for the first ten levels... Choices, choices.

    Anyone been on today? The framerate seems a bit smoother to me. Still a bit choppy in New Gridania, but for the most part it was noticeably better.

    Does anyone else get lag? I'm on the Leviathan server and I've specifically noticed that sometimes it lags when attacking- it takes a while for my attacks to register, and sometimes nothing happens at all. I've also had lag during FATEs, whereby my attacks do nothing and then I just auto-die!

    I also have issues when in a party with a friend (who's based in the United States) where sometimes he appears to be stood still on the spot, when he's actually moving about.

    I love the game but these issues really concern me and are pretty deal breaking, I'm just not sure what's causing them- it's not my internet as I have high speed fibre-octic, but is it the game or the server? I read that supposedly EU doesn't have any europe based servers, that they've actually also based in NA. :-/

    come launch there will be EU data centres. The devs are aware of the lag and are fixing it. :)

    Bah. Has anyone beaten the Masked Mage and his gargoyle thing? I'm in Gridania, but I'd imagine that battle would play out much the same no matter where you started? I decided to log on last night at about 1am "for about half an hour". Then it was gone 3am :| I wasted a handful of potions over my three attempts, but tbh I find them a little bit useless thanks to their slow cooldown.

    @Rose-of-Sorrow I have had a few attacks either not connect or just not play out, but nothing as drastic as that!

    EDIT - Failed it again :( Its poison is murdering me, anyone know where I can get some sort of poison ward in Gridania?

    Ok, I was using my PS3 on a wifi connection and it's always been fine for all games. Usually my connection is around 55mbps dl. I tested it on my PS3 and I was getting only 5mbps! So I hooked it all up to my router and now I get around 25. The game now runs like a dream with no lag whatsoever! :-)

    Started this beta yesterday and it was good fun. When can we log in again? Never played an MMO before but enjoyed it. Only really walked around and killed a few beasts.

    Going by the last few weeks, I should imagine next Friday.

    I managed to get my airship pass and briefly visit both Limsa Lominsa and Ul'Dah yesterday, but got to a quest that I needed to party up for, so left it there. I guess I'll be crossing that bridge next week.

    I believe it's next weekend but the official schedule for next week hasn't been announced yet. We'll know more on Tuesday I think.

    Aren't our characters being deleted now before the open beta?

    I think there's one more test period of phase 3 left..?

    I thought phase 4 was the open beta.

    So is this game really good now?

    Yeah, Phase 4 is open beta AFAIK. We're still in Phase 3 as far as I'm aware.

    @ecureuil I can only speak as a total MMO newbie, but I've really enjoyed the 15-20 hours I've put into it.

    SO! Last stage of phase 3. Server population info: Interesting stuff.

    I spent last weekend crafting and running dungeons on Ultros. It was crazy fun.

    I'd like to keep the good vibe going. Should we start thinking about an official EG server?

    I like the look of the Duty Finder that was shown off yesterday:

    If I've got a beta key, can I redeem on PS3 or PC? Or just PC?

    It should work for either.

    Depends on what you've got - if you've got a PS3 code, you can play on PC as well, just need to download the PC client. If you don't have a PS3 code, you can't get the client for PS3 from anywhere so you can't play on there.

    Anyone been back on this weekend? Last weekend I had to get into a party to continue the main quest. This week I decided to ignore that and start on a conjurer role. I can now use cure as an additional skill on my archer, which is nice :)

    I'm just downloading the PC version to check that out, it never even occurred to me to try.
    EDIT Oh how I hate Catalyst Control Centre.

    Not completely sold on the duty finder - it's convenient, but at what price? *shakes fists* Some sort of "choose own world first" option would be welcome.

    After this weekend I'm starting to realize the potential depth of this game, and I'm 99% certain that I'm up for the commitment it will require to extract all the precious FF juice.

    I'm sold.

    The final test of Beta phase 3 starts tomorrow until Monday 15th July. After this test, beta phase 3 will be finished and characters will be wiped in preparation for phase 4.

    Yeah, I got an email about it this morning- albeit in Japanese! Nice to have a bit longer than just 2 days.

    Really want to play this but ffxi was too much of a time sink. Took a day just to do something simple. I played the original beta for 14 and it was a step backwards from how good xi had become. So how does it now compare?

    @Slipstream I saw your name pop up on the chat this afternoon :D

    Quick Q for you: you mentioned setting up different targeting parameters a while back, any chance you could give me a bit of a heads-up on how to set that? I looked in the keybinding menu earlier and my brain felt like it was going to dribble out of my ears :(

    I'm running out of decent quests since ignoring the Sastasha quest, so I'm going to try jumping into a party for that tomorrow, but I want to be able to target effectively so I'm not a liability. No worries if you don't have the time, I'll probably just mess around with it and see what happens!

    @Ror1984 Yes Absolutely I'll Step by Step it.

    Start Menu > System > Character Configuration > You will already be on the Targetting option press R1 twice to select the Filter Tab and voila! Have a good look at those and see what you want on/off.

    Hope that helps!
