The world is full! Now you can get a 1017 error when trying to purchase the game.

Straight from Square-Enix:

"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days."

Well, that's interesting... looks like they've sold more copies than they can handle on the server side. I'm glad they're doing this so all of the pre-orders can hopefully get in and play until they work this out enough to continue selling.

Level 50 gathering is all about crystals, spiritbonding & getting stuff you actually need. Most importantly (as always) don't waste any time gathering Jimmy! Wanna know my GPH on crystals? Here's how in this video.

I spend the first half of this video working on -figuring out- spiritbonding. What I think it's coming down is jewelry only. I can try something like what I do with the Warrior. I have a completely different set for that, that is only just to turn into materia. I think I can do the same thing with the gathering, but I haven't tested to see what kind of a drop that would be in my perception. Nobody give a fuck about gathering ... 

In the second half of the video I race myself to see how many crystals & shards I can get in 30 mins. It was about 200 each if I recall. You can watch the video & see just how I did it. 

Don't be a Jimmy!

Thanks for watching.

FFXIV The Wanderer's Palace Speedrun Videos

By: goukijones Oct 23, 2013 | 0 Comments

I've been wanting to learn how to speed run Wanderer's Palace in FFXIV. Mostly because I hate running these dungeons over & over at this point. So I figure if I can get 3-4 runs in 1 hour, I'll be thrilled! Check out these videos.

So this is JP. This is the first 1 I saw. Everything is pretty obvious here. Group them all up & drop bombs. Yesterday I saw another video, but it had a PLD leading as well. I asked around for a WAR speedrun & you can check that out below. 

I definitely thing the Scholar works best with a Warrior right now. The Black Mage is great for AOE damage & the Warrior really needs a Bard to keep his TP up. 

I am about to get my Relic +1 weapon & I'll be doing some serious practice on my speedruns. You can watch on the stream when I do & I'll post the video after I get a time I like. Shooting for under 15 mins for sure.

If you're on Malboro & want to team up, send me a message. Avitas Sibannac. Don't be a Jimmy!

Before you proceed, there is nothing here but a bad ass CG trailer. From my perspective & I'm so far on the out side trying look in, I still can't tell what is happening with this game that is different.

Gouki Guild in Final Fantasy XIV

By: goukijones Sep 11, 2010 | 6 Comments

I’m looking for some serious people to get down and destroy this Final Fantasy XIV. Team up with the Gouki Guild.

Gouki Guild in Final Fantasy XIV. Number 1 in the Eorzea!

Final Fantasy XIV world map

I haven’t decided what town and or Job or craft I will do just yet. I will tell you I will not start in the castle town of Ul’dah. That is nubfarm. So lets talk about Gridania, it’s in the woods. The Bontanist, carpenters, and archer’s guild are all in Gridinia. Also the lancer's and Conjurrer's guilds as well. Those are all classes I’ve considered really focusing on. Bontanist for sure. I will be doing bontany, for a few reasons. One, it gets you out of the town. Chopping down trees and hacking away at flowers and other foliage. 

I don’t think it will matter about which city we start in. The other option is Limsa Lominsa. My only issue is with this place is that it’s an island. That probably won’t make a difference once we unlock all of the travel routes. I like the water town because it’s open, blue and green. Gridania is just dark green and seems like it’s in the shade everywhere. 

As a guild we will focus on working together throughout the world. Choose any class or profession you like. It’s more important to have fun than anything else. We’ll combine whatever we choose and work from there. I’m sure there will be plenty of things we will be able to take advantage of early one. Especially with my experience with the beta at this point. I got one Jimmy maxed out for the beta. Tons of items, maxed gear and a ton of money. What I need is some partners in crime and to take our Jimmys out and level them up. 

So if you want to join the Gouki Guild sign up for Gouki.com and leave a comment on this story. On September 22, 2010 when Final Fantasy XIV is released we’ll meet and figure out what planet we’re gonna be on and go from there. Don’t be a Jimmy!

Holyshit new content for Final Fantasy XIV! Nevermind, there isn't 1 second of actual gameplay. Not much is actually explained at all. The computer graphics look beautiful. Square Enix, really just wants to make movies.

Watch this reh-tard whack trees & rocks for an hour. Leveling up. The key to leveling up while gathering is ...

Accuracy & Speed.

The more strikes that DON'T miss, the more XP & items you get. Moving from node to node & not missing any strikes is all about speed. What is your GPH? That's Gathering Per Hour, nubfarm. I'm guessing mine is around 720GPH during this video. I connected with a node 720 times during the hour. I think I'm low balling myself too. I did go from 27 to 29 in less than an hour. 

Yeah I leve'd up, but yo it's 1 of the fastest ways to level up. The other option that I've been experimenting with is going back a few levels & chasing HQs. Earlier today I was after Wyvern Obsidian. I was getting 700+XP for HQ's. I got total 99 NQ's & 26 HQ's when I was done. I haven't done any of the math on this to see if it was a more valuable usage of my time. More on that to come. 

Back to the strategy here. I mount my Chocobo immediately -I never move a step on the ground without being on my Chocobo- Okay, that's a lie. I will run to a close node, sometimes & I mean very rarely for me thus far. That is faster than calling in the mount. I see level 30's now STILL running around on foot. Don't be a Jimmy!

More on the gathering to come next week after Zero pulls his head from his ass & we can get back on track to 50.

Thanks for watching. 

Episode 8 in my weekly Final Fantasy XIV gathering show. At level 44, level 50 is closing in. Check out my strategies on maximum gathering time spent & my shortcuts to XP. Gouki.tv Exclusive!

At this point in the game I'm looking for every shortcut possible to speed up the gathering. Grinding out nodes is ridiculous & even after the update to XP a few weeks back, it's still the worst thing in the game to do. ESPECIALLY when you don't make any money & you are just wasting your time. 

So check your Grand Company dailies & get double. Those will always sell on the MP & you won't be wasting your time if Raw Rubellite shows up 2 days in a row. If it's starred, it's worth DOUBLE on turn in. 

You can watch the LIVE SHOW every Thursday at/around 1PM Pacific time on Gouki.tv

 

Featuring GoukiJones, BatRastered, Choke & FnJimmy. We talk about Salt Fest & Final Fantasy XI. Plus other video game & relevant nerd news stuff.

Haukke Manor is a level 28 story quest dungeon. I'm a level 28 MRD & Zero is a level 25 BRD. We had some nubfarm Monk on this squad. Don't be a Jimmy!

Leave any questions below. If you have any suggestions for that Imp & Skeleton, I'd love to hear it. Make note of all the Tiny Keys. You can't get the last chest if you don't pick up all of the Tiny Keys.

Thanks for watching.
