I have question to the ppl playing Arcanist (I am Scholar) have you unlock the Summoner and Scholar and switching between them, like questing with the Summoner and doing dungeons with Scholar?

A decay system would be bad. XP boost for dungeons has to happen imo.

I think the problem with some massive enemy group fates is that there are far too many enemies clustered in one spot. Should spread them out abit like Conquest back in the day.

Not sure what can be done about the giant enemy fates since people will all group in one spot regardless.

The armor you see is the "AF" sets. Quest armor... there's definitely much better gear that you can get.
Its like the baseline endgame gear. Tier I-like armor.

With logging in as hard as it is, I don't generally expect anyone to return when they are d/ced during a dungeon.

It's going to be really interesting to see what the retention rate is going to be like next month with the way things things are going. :( If I had to repay for the client again I'd be extremely pissed. I'm only really annoyed at the moment since I got the client for free and at least half a month free from buying and wasting my money before. These are errors are completely unacceptable with this being Square Enix's 4th MMO launch.

Yes. The problem is getting in to actually play the game. That's a damn mess right now and there really is no set time one can try to have better results.

I feel like it has gotten faster but locking the story progress behind a dungeon that takes me 90 minutes to get into is really frustrating.

not as frustrating though as having the story progress level locked and not having enough quests to get me to that level. I don't like doing fates because I feel like I am not contributing meaningfully to it. I am out of levequest allotments so I can only do six of those a day. and dungeons take at least 45 or so minutes to get into. I got to the mid 30's really efficiently but now I get to the required level eventually, run the quest line and unlocked side quests and still have half a level to get before I can proceed. then I go do something else.

Just a nice boost to exp. the first time you do one you get a bump to the ammount of exp received. You should try them all at least once.

It took me almost 3 hours to get a group for Infrit and almost 2 hours for the mines.

I assume it won't be as hard once the game actually goes live to where everyone can log in and more people buy the game. I know a lot of people who really want to pick this up and play.

Well, for early access you needed a 1.0 legacy account or a pre-order code. So you wouldn't have been able to access it anyway.

I ask this because after 45 minutes, I haven't been able to get in. I noticed it just repeat strokes, which very well may cancel the queue up. Thanks.

Basically you get in before the Q even happens, the clicker is faster then human clicking. The moment a spot opens, you take it

Thank god I've had guild mates to roll with most of the time. I did have one 60 min queue.

I like melee and tanking, but I don't see myself as an endgame tank so I switched from MRD to LNC. I wish MRD had a DPS Job as well.

ERROR 1017
:

STEP 1
: Download the program Auto-Keyboard.
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...Keyboard.shtml

STEP 2:
When you download Auto-Keyboard. CLICK KEYSTROKE, A new menu will open up.



STEP 3:
Put in these numbers above. Press NUMPAD 0 / DELAY 50 / Generate 10000000

STEP 4: Press the "start" button and set it up for F1 (should be automatic).

STEP 5: LOG INTO THE GAME, WHEN YOU GET TO THE CHARACTER SELECTION SCREEN, PRESS F1. (IT will automatically click Num 0 which significantly increases chance to get in).

STEP 6: Go have some coffee, and come back in 15 min.

WHAT THIS DOES NOT FIX
NA/JP ERRORS (If you get this, you have to stop the program by pressing F1) Then reopen client and do it again.
10102 (If you get this logging in, it will kick you out automatically).

WHAT THIS WILL FIX
Error 1017
Q Problem (It will bypass the Q system)
REMEMBER EVERY SINGLE TIME you USE the program, you have to go back into it and reset the NUM 0 (Meaning open it up, click Num 1 then Num 0 again, it will reset it).

Summary: Is this a 100% success rate?, No but it's about 95%, I have gotten in basically every single time within 15/30 min. Be patient.
If you see OTHER errors then 1017, this will NOT fix the problem.

PS - A ton of people on mumble are doing this trick now, And it's gaining huge steam, it's working extremely well, if you have ANY questions. LET ME KNOW.

I run a macro on my razer nostromo that does this and I can vouch.

Also, If you do get in a queue, the macro will keep resetting it. I've gotten in the game after like 10 resets after killing the macro, but you have to notice it. You can notice it by sound. You'll keep hearing swish sound or whatever.

In the end, being able to get away from the computer is a godsend. It can run 30+ minutes straight without an error or queue pop and you don't want to waste your time do things manually.

Yeah I know. Was just wondering of any of the later guildhests had some important rewards or whatever. If it's just XP I'll save it for my alts. I've been leveling fine without them. Almost 40 before I got side tracked with crafting.
