    This one caught my eye.

    Looks like one of the bazaars in Thanalan?
    From what I understood, that's actually the Ul'dahn housing instance. Can't read the first kanji, but the "HOU" suggests "Housing" to me. The last kanji say "central plaza"

    Yes. I'm working on the 4gamer interview now, but it will take a while. They're so freaking LONG!

    So you're working in the other interviews too? Can't wait to read the other recap then, thanks!

    Pfft.... too bad I lost my registration code ages ago when I moved. Why do they insist on putting it on tiny slips of paper that vanish the moment they taste oxygen.

    Better organization ftw. Technically you should be able to see your registration on the SE account page...but I doubt SE would be that nice with it, I mean Steam does it for your XI purchase..POL Viewer used to do it..they should realize the general user will lose that shit like the next week lol.

    Yeah i know right? I lost all my mixing bowls in that move too. I swear someone walked off with one of my boxes. >.<

    At any rate, it won't matter in the long run, since anyone with a FFXIV service account will be able to play ARR without having to re-register a service account.

    Can I start playing FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN" on my current account?

    The registration code you redeem activates your subscription to FINAL FANTASY XIV services on your registered SQUARE ENIX account. Therefore, as long as the service account you are currently using to play FINAL FANTASY XIV is a registered SQUARE ENIX account, you will be able to continue playing as normal, even after FINAL FANTASY XIV is re-released as FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN.

    It is also possible to start playing a new game with any unused registration code issued for the current version of FINAL FANTASY XIV after FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN service begins.
    ******

    So you're not screwed. I think Yoshi is referring more to the "unused registration codes". But I don't read enough Japanese.

    Weird how from pages 519 to 523 there isn't a single post from Reinhart, 1 translated summary from Soukyuu, and 4 posts from Evangelus on some links that needs translating.... come on guys, make a separate thread. This one has been shot up to the hot topics side menu at the home page again because of all this traffic.

    Source: [4gamer] [ my comments ]
    This one had some common points with the Dengeki one, so I left them out. They fooled my with their "it's only 2 pages"-format... It was much longer than Dengeki's 5 page interview lol.

    Please refrain from posting comments here, this thread is meant for translations
    • Story
      • Main story will introduce a character related to Louisiox
      • Why Bahamut was sealed is related to the Crystal Tower
      • There will be no need to know the 1.0 story, as everything will be explained in ARR
      • Concept art of items obtainable in the Great Labyrinth of Bahamut [click]
    • Name changes
      • Changing char name is possible technically
      • This will mean your friend list [and probably LS membership] will be lost, though
      • They are worried about people mistyping their char name, since it's a one-time opportunity and there is no confirmation dialogue on char creation, so they are asking to be careful about it
      • HE NEVER SAID "YES" DIRECTLY! WAIT FOR AN OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION!
    • Character customization
      • Bust sizes vary by races, for example Roegardyn will have bigger sizes than sunseeker, moonkeeper coming after it. [Hyur/Elezen not mentioned]
      • Bust physics will be kept as modest as possible
      • Other char model movements involve Miqo'te ears & tail, as well as Elezen/Lalafell ears.
      • For miqo'te tails, there will be 5 tail types, ranging from more lion-like movement to more cat-like movement [Yay~]
      • Barber NPC will make you do a quest that will allow you to change your hairstyle, it's color as well as facepaint. Not face/body proportions though.
    • FATE
      • Definition of NM as "mosters that suddenly make the otherwise safe environment dangerous"
      • Rewards are decided based not on party, but individual performance
      • All players treated as "one large party" [so basically you just get flagged as "near enough to be evaluated for a reward, which also level-synchs you to the event level]
      • Level sync only works one-way: if you're above content level, you will be de-levelled, if you're below content level, nothing happens.
      • Other FATE types:
        • village/city invasion (example: bandits/thieves)
        • chocobo escort
      • No limit on how many people can participate in a FATE
      • They are thinking about a system that automatically creates an instance and moves the half of the people to a new one should the number of people reach a certain number
      • While this system is technologically possible, the cost is high, so they are planning to monitor the events in alpha&beta to decide if it's really needed.
    • Housing
      • To be able to afford an M-Sized house, three players would have to level to 50 by clearing all quests and combine the gil theay earned from that. Apparently, that would take about 50 hours.
      • The housing system is comparable to Dragon Quest X
      • Land and House prices are separate
      • Land starts expensive, but if it's not bought, the price will start to drop
      • There are only 3 L-sized patches of land per instance
      • Apparently, once we will see the amount of gil needed to buy an L-sized patch of land, we will recoil in horror.
      • Since the price will be falling with time, he wants us to worry about when the right timing to buy it will be
      • Retainers will be placed in our homes
      • You can buy from them there, or alternatively from the board [probably our current marketplace system]
    • Free Company
      • Free company ranking and "earning reputation from a GC" is just a setting they thought of for the roleplaying community. Non-RPing players won't really have to pay attention to that.
      • Example of perks for taking the top position in a GC ranking: That GC NPC will greet members of that FC with more respect, saluting once you approach them.
    • Marriage System
      • For bonuses for getting married, they are only thinking of simple things like using the wedding ring to teleport to your partner. No bonuses in battle, else it will just lead to fake marriages
      • To be able to marry, you will have to clear a quest with your partner
    • Mounts
      • Only chocobo will be fighting by your side, others are for riding only
      • When you level up, your chocobo levels up with you
      • There are plans to make the magitech armor customizable [think mecha parts]
      • Magitech armor will somehow be connected to the story, he said they prepared an episode that will make us sit there grinning
      • Using in in PvE/PvP is possible, but they currently have no plans for it
    • PvE/PvP Balancing
      • They're carefully balancing damage and status effects between those two [seems like the rulesets are NOT separated after all.]
      • Some kind of "item level" will be introduced which describes the usefullness of your equip. Not only the DPS but also the status effects is taken in account, so that we can go away from "if you're not keeping up your DPS, you're useless"-mindset
    • Items/Equip
      • Inventory limited, but banks will have larger capacity
      • Vanity items still class restricted (no heavy armor mages)
      • In PvP, vanity will be disabled, so you won't be able to trick people with it
      • FATE rewards will contain vanity items among others
    • New Races
      • Reason why he is torn between Viera and something more brute-ish like a reptile is because Viera are too close to humans and he wanted to introduce something more beast-like. Also, Viera has only appeared as female so far... and he doesn't want to have a gender-locked race... [read: do you seriously want to see bunnyGUYS?!]
      • He is also worried about crossing a certain line after which it will become hard to distinguish between PCs and NPCs/Monsters
    • Alpha
      • currently, zone servers can handle up to 700 players with about 300 battles taking place in one zone and all the AI running
      • servers start to lag extremely @800 players in one zone, with about 380 battles taking place
      • they plan to increase that to 1000 players per zone
    • Beta
      • PvP will be available for testing
      • They are thinking of people with alpha invites to be brought to phase1 beta too, but it's not set in stone yet.
      • The dev team is practicing PvP matches already, meaning we get to fight them
    • Game content
      • normal quests soloable
      • dungeons and raids require a party
      • normal mode clearable when forming one via content finder
      • hard mode is only clearable if you have people with experience working together [implying you CAN try to clear it by auto-matching, but you'll need a lot of luck]
      • content may be hard at first, but if for example a patch introduces some new content that gives you a nice item, it will raise your "item level", making clearing previous content easier.
