Looking to make a league on DCUO maybe even a Gouki.com league who's intrested?
I wanna make a League on this shit need some peeps to play with I'm not too far into yet I'm a level 16 I think. Jimmy was supposed to pick the game up but bitched out. Leave a comment and lemme know if anyone is interested. The game is badass btw!
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!
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!

Two full days of experience and ranking up. Also, tons of walking around aimlessly. What have I learned from the beta so far?
Sqaure-Enix launched the Final Fantasy XIV beta early this week and it was a pain in the ass to get in. Apparently, from my understanding, Square-Enix opened up the beta with like 10 different servers. Those servers filled up faster than FNJimmy trying to solve any random puzzle in Darksiders. I had no chance that first day. I didn’t even really understand how and what was happening with trying get into the beta. I think the problem here is that the Square-Enix website is all done in Japanese and then translated straight over into English. The site is crazy backwards sometimes. Also I feel like I’m logging in a 100 times. Two days later, I did get a code and I was in.
With the beta you can create and play with as many different characters as you want. Actually I don’t know if that’s true, what I do know is that I have made 4 different characters. The first character I made was how I imagined I wanted him before I got the chance to play. I chose Disciple of the hand, Alchemist. I had no idea that with this selection I would have no weapon and my main attack would be “throw stone.” Thank god this is a trial run. At this point I tried to learn about the settings, moving around with a keyboard and getting familiar with the controls. I did a few quests, the levequest stuff is cool. So after playing for sometime and only doing 1 hit point of damage, I knew something was wrong and started my second character.
Disciple of war, Archer. Now I’m railin’ right out of the box. Gone are the days of gathering stones to throw at Nutbiters and here we go with 40+ hit point, crushing arrow blows to your dome. So now I got some combat under my belt for reals this time. I realize I just needed a little money and I could go buy any weapon I want. Once I buy a new weapon I can change my class. Buy a polearm, become a lancer. Buy a sword, become a gladiator. This also works with the crafting. Buy a sledgehammer, become a goldsmith. So yeah, you can start the game as any class you want. Now I can get my alchemist and get him a wand so he can start casting some magic.
Before I switch back to my original character I created. I made another character and started him in a different city. I chose for this Jimmy to be a Thaumaturge. Yea, I know the names of the classes are a little ridiculous in FF14. Thaumaturge means black mage in normal talk. I also picked a human male this time. Previously I had chosen the little Lalafell Jimmy and an Elf. My human mage started with high and equal HP/MP. Cool. He also dealt major solo damage. I didn’t want to play has a mage in this game, but I may level it secondary.
So now I think I understand the leveling, the controls and the questing. I start a third character, with a class I wouldn’t usually choose and in the third and final city. Disciple of war, Lancer. This city Ul’dah, is a city of bricks. One of the regrets I had in Final Fantasy XI was I chose the “castle city” in that game and I felt like I was in prison. So I don’t like Ul’dah in Final Fantasy XIV and I won’t choose this city. That’s official. I took my lancer out and killed a few things, got some gil. Final Fantasy money for you nuabs. Went back to town and bought myself a pick axe. Time to learn about mining. Got a levequest and took off out the front door. It took me a while to find the mining spots. Eventually I and it was there I discovered the mining mini-game. I couldn’t find any technique to swinging the pick axe other than to just keep whacking away at at the stone. I’m sure there is some trick to it.
Back to my original character. I got tons of money from stumbling around town doing quests. Got some money from being in parties earlier throwing rocks at Star Marmots out in the wild. Searched the town high and low looking for the Jimmy who had the magic wands for sale. Bought a bow and some arrows too. I already have my alchemy tools. Which I couldn’t figure out how to do shit for crafting. Fuck it. Lets kill something. Used the bow and arrows, killed a bunch of wild beasts(actually cute little furry things.) Leveled my Archer to rank 5 in no time. Now I’m starting to feel the leveling addiction. Wait what this? I just switch my bow and arrow to my magic wand and now I’m a Thaumaturge. WOW! Now I’m hurling magic balls across the grassy knolls. We are rollin’. By the way in FF14 the mages can throw magic “balls.” It’s a regular attack and uses NO mp. Cool stuff. Leveled my Thaumaturge to level 4.
The time has come for me to log back in. What will I do next? Trial and errors continues. Get ready for the Final Fantasy XIV release. Play it early if you get the Collector’s Edition. Don’t be a Jimmy. Join the Gouki Guild.
