I'm getting extremely frustrated with this game...

I'm trying to do the very first quest in gridania, the one where you kill stumbling funguar.. except i can't attack ANY of them, theres tons there and they're all giving me invalid targets... one other person for sure is having the same problem as me.. but then there are those who can attack 3-4 at a time and just have a blast...

I totally feel you, everything about this game just seems to make me rage.

The constant crashes don't help either.

Recently my crashes have got better... maybe it's because it was 2 am when i started up the game again.. played for 4 hours without a crash.. just had one 20 minutes ago though.

Yeah, i saw that later.. the game wanted me to go past the whole area they were in to a spot to officially activate being able to kill them, then run all the way back to them. sort of obnoxious.

I do like the instant turn-ins though and hand/land occupations, been mining and blacksmithing recently.

I would really love to follow a lot of stuff on that database, but a lot of it (at least for blacksmith) is wrong. Including main ingredients and the shards required.

I just have no idea what to do. Like, I tried getting another Levequest from the crystal in bentbranch, but it wouldn't give one too me. Also the directions on the main quest I'm on make no sense. Also, that fact that I can't move the map around is really annoying.

It took me a long time to figure out how to move the map also. I eventually looked it up on the gamefaq forums. I was stuck wandering around gridania hoping I was going in the right direction towards the area I want and opening the map up every few seconds so it could refresh my position on it.

For the part you're stuck on, you can look here. http://www.ffxivorigin.com/guides/1024- ... rough.html it's the full walkthrough of the main quest from beginning to end. Helped me a ton.

Also, for the levequests, you need to go to the adventurers guild area, where moulinne or whatever person is (the first person with cutscenes in gridania) and the middle booth in there assigns guildleves, which lets you choose bentbranch as the area. You get quests for bentbranch from gridania, then you go to bentbranch to start it.. weird i know but who knows what they were thinking.

Yep, I'm on lindblum and I play whenever I get a chance really, no set times. My updater right now is stuck at 94.8% right now.

Same, I had to do the torrent trick again.

Also, I can't believe they are using software mouse input. Thats why its so laggy they dont use hardware input.


They are doing the what soon?

Yeah, theres a lot of japanese mixed in.. like theres this one buff on my screen that shows a sword and shield that has 20 japanese characters in it.

Edit: Whatever that sword and shield is, it's fucking up my game. I can't change any of my gear it just says "That action cannot be performed". And my health won't regenerate.... this is pissing me off, now I'm stuck as a miner who keeps getting attacked by monsters while I'm trying to mine.

I couldn't get it to download. Not even with the torrent trick. But I really wasn't interested in buying the game anyway. So not being able to try it out is no big loss on my end.
