I have an Original Character from XIV, she has 3 Level 50 Jobs.....
the friends im going to be playing with in ARR are new, dont yet have accounts.

Am I going to be able to world transfer to where they are playing when this game goes live ? or are they going to be able to create characters in my world I am currently In ?

It would be a great Shame if i cannot play with my RL Friends in this game because were seperated by being in a different world. and I do not want to re do another character.

Since you're a Legacy player, you're able to transfer to any Legacy server, however, you can not transfer to any of the new servers. Economic reasons. Although your friends can transfer to any Legacy servers assuming they're all new players/new accounts/ and not Legacy players.

Hi everyone, I was thinking of playing as a thaumaturge on FFXIV: ARR when it comes out but my friend will be playing as an archer. These two classes start in different areas don't they? Does this mean that I will have to travel to Gridania to play with him meaning that I would have to complete all of the quests in Ul'dah before having any to do in Gridania? I was thinking that I could start as another class that starts in Gridania and change later but I realised that I would have to travel to Ul'dah to unlock the thaumaturge and It would be a waste of time doing loads of quests on a class that I don't want to play as. :scratch:

I really hope they add something to where you can just find your friends from your PSN friends list. Pointless to have just an entire character base just to search for someone you can easily find by just adding a PSN friends list feature.

Square Enix - ruining a game, completely overhauling and remaking it just to have it fail again since 2010.

Dude, I played with my friends through all betas in Leviathan, bought the pre-release package months ago, only to end up locked out of it while all the people that joined the game with me are in there now playing, while I am here like a clown looking through forums for a solution because there is no customer service.

Limitations and balancing servers will be happening for a while, only thing I can suggest is move all of you guys to another server :-\ . You can join me on Diabolos! :) it is rumored that more servers are to come in the "near future" who knows how long that is but also an increase in the cap

If u think Square Enix is a bad publisher and this would be a reason for qq in forums: please leave. I heared about a game called WoW, it would perfectly match to you.

If you think Square is doing a great job by:
- Opening pre-release service when customer service is closed/off.
- Ignoring paying customers that are having trouble accessing the product they purchased
- Locking people out of servers where their friends are playing to "balance" population
- Having horrendous server uptime when they know damn well the exact size of the playerbase

It might be time to change those glasses...

I gather you've tried this while you are both logged in? You need to search on their full in game name and if you're on the same server at the same time it should find them. It doesn't work if the friend you're trying to add is not online.

Hi there! Just looking for some people to play FFXIV with me. I play before work and after work usually 10am to 2pm and then 1130pm to 3 or 4am eastern time I think. I'm on the ps3 so add my psn. xFRAG_HAPPYx I know a bit about the game so if you want help with quests or building a character I have knowledge with that. Quest wise I can help with the beginner quests. I'm on tonight! Hope to have some pals soon! Thanks!

this game is awesome loving every second but i have to pry myself away from it constantly so i don't hit the level cap before the month is out haha. one thing i found confusing was after i had left a dungeon and realized i would like to add those people to my friends list, i would go back threw my chat window click their name and invite to friends list. but it comes up with "character can not be located" im not sure what is going on here or if they only allow you to add a person to your list if they are in the immediate area but whatever it is needs to be improved or changed i met a bunch of GREAT people we spent around 10 minutes after the dungeon talking about different novels, favorite tv shows. it is mostly my fault for not thinking to add them then and their but feeling pretty bummed about it =[

The dungeons are cross realm.

You will have been trying to add people from a different server to yourself.

Getting the game tomorrow, I am a Scottish player. Played ffxi online before and wanted to get a friend or friends to play online. Saw the friend request deal and hopefully me and a player can get the experience bonus as I will be registering this tomorrow.

Any help is appreciated ;)

I've had the game since launch, I don't know how the friend recruit system works. Your friends will still need to buy game time to make it work.

Anyways, here's a video going in detail of how the system works https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-OAaOIlLFs
