Also, I'll be on the Cactuar server.

I'm staying on Excalibur server. Was tempted to go to Masamune but I think the server is in Japan. SLOOOOOW!

What? 13% female? That can't be right.
The legacy mark ... I don't like it's location.

The sample is probably biased, but the second poll was apparently also from the same people.

I think I'm the only person who likes the legacy mark. Too bad I won't be using that character. :(

Edit:
Quote:
Japanese voices with English subtitles
Around the time of E3, when we released the Crystal's Call trailer, we saw, and continue to see comments from players like yourself saying they would like to listen to different languages in their game. Well, as we recently mentioned, in Beta phase 4 we will be implementing voice overs to cutscenes. In addition to that, we will also be adding a setting that will allow you to change the voice languages for cutscenes.

The subtitle language will reflect the language settings chosen before booting up the game, so for example, if you are playing the game in English, you could set the subtitles to English and listen to the voices in Japanese.

Mouth movement animations
We've seen some requests like this for a "talk" emote that would make your character's mouth move. In Beta phase 4, we will be making it possible to set it so you character moves their lips when chatting in /say, /LS, or other chat channels!
Also, we feel it will be possible to really bring out more emotion by having your lips move while using certain expression emotes.

UI display grid
Mini-map to B4, you sunk my Status Menu!

When we go into the HUD Layout menu, we need options to display a grid (controlling the size of the squares would also be nice) in order to align HUD elements properly in relation to each other.

In Beta phase 4, we'll be implementing a display grid that should help you align everything juuuuust the way you want it!

Dungeon Crawler v1 brighter?
Hey all, we wanted to preemptively mention something brought up on the JP forums in case anyone was curious.

When watching this latest trailer, there were comments that the dungeons seem brighter and the contrast might look "off."

First off, differences can be experienced due to the fact that everyone has various display setups and what not. However, there are places shown in the trailer that would be difficult to see if we kept it looking dark, so overall we made it somewhat brighter for the video.

Also, another factor for it looking different is that we had adopted camera angles and distances that are not normally possible, in order to show off aspects you'll see when taking on these dungeons as well as the overall dungeon scene.

We hope you enjoyed the video, and if you didn't have a chance to do so before, be sure to hop into each one of these dungeons and check them out once the next Beta phase begins!

Huh? Well if you want to play Miqote you must have a female character right?

That would kind of affect the results of dicksausaging.

Nope! ARR has balanced the genders to not be, well, stupid. You can now play male Miqo'te, female Highlander, and female Roegadyn. (I must say, they've done a great job with the models too.)

Examples can be seen here: Miqo'te, Highlander (on the right), and Roegadyn. If you scroll a little bit further down the page, you can see the models in screenshots as well.

Yay grid lines.
The legacy mark is hidden...

Ewps, I'll fix that when I'm off work later.

Character Creation benchmark (no PS3 support, sorry) should be released soon. You'll be able to save a look for use during open/launch. No advance name grabbing though.

I honestly have no idea. We just picked it for the name. I was the one who suggested it too, so it wasn't anyone being sneaky. /shrug

Seems like that Google Doc is actually down, by the way. Original link doesn't work anymore either.

*grin* I've been waiting for it! Still juggling between changing my Miqo'te. Either stay the same or go Lala or Roegadyn ~-~ Why is it soooo difficult?

Damn, you can even transfer your character from the benchmark into the full game. It's basically offline-character-creation.

Emotes on Chocobo
While we don't have any new information on chocobo-specific emotes, we can say that in phase 4 we will be making it possible to perform certain player emotes such as wave, cheer, and look around while mounted or sitting down.

Hotbar Transparency
Just a little lemon juice, add some heat and voila!

Looking at the images posted in the most recent Letter from the Producer you might have noticed already, but we’ve added a setting allowing you to make unused hot bar boxes transparent.



By arranging and organizing, you should be able to make extremely customizable hot bars.

Additionally, we will be adding a setting in Beta phase 4 for both the PS3 version and the Windows version so that when you are not pressing the L1/L2 and R1/R2 buttons the cross hot bar will be hidden.

Everyone has different ways they would like to play and we would like you all to play the way that makes you comfortable.
Yesssssss.

I really love the character benchmark! I didn't like how the game was so limiting in terms of character customization and watered down - like with the options for hair and face - but after playing with the benchmark, you can really do a lot with the eyes. I really love it, and pretty awesome how I don't have to rush to make my character in the very beginning since it'll already be saved.

Character editor is still, ironically, not as good as EVE's.

I was bored so I watched some online footage.

- I was about to praise FFXIV for not making a race that appeals specifically for pedophiles like koreans always do(*cough*TERA*cough*) then I saw Mi'qotes' default outfit. Fuck you, Yoshida.
- I don't like how every race got F and M version, because it is different and I do not like things that are different
- Either the chick who did the LP is the worst gamer ever(very likely) or there is zero skill/tactics when playing a mage is to simply spam spells and tank the damage(or have someone tank it for you with the stupid aggro system) as range control doesn't seem to be possible
- The character emote animations are 2anime4me

I could also list some nice things but that's boring.

So you're saying..



My gf was all "you're not gonna make a female character? But she's so cute", yeah right I'm gonna look like a whore and get free items... maybe later.
I don't really like it, but considering the world we live in today, I'm not surprised by it.

I don't disagree with you of course, the female Miqo'te looks like a banged up sex doll. It could have had more depth as a real character, but nope. It's just a whore.

I'm definitely making a masked character though, as you have the tattoos that go over the eyes.
