With the release of the PS4 version only a month away, we know there will be many new faces on Eorzea. Here's how to not look like a n00b even though you are one.
Choosing a server (world)
There are only two datacenters, North America (located in Montreal) and Japan. Pick a server from the DC closest to you. If you want to play with the Gouki team, pick Malboro (NA).
Choosing a race
Hyur (Human): Really? Zzzzzz.
Elezen (Elf): About the same size and shape as human, can get a bit taller and has pointy ears. Good wizarding material. You think Legolas is the star of the LotR and fantasize about Spock.
Miqo’te (Cat people): A tiny bit smaller than humans, but not annoyingly so. Have cat ears on top of their heads and whiskers. You’re probably into furries and/or MLP.
Roegadyn (Giants): Big, muscular. Great for tanks or if you really want to see the detail in those armor pieces and have poor eyesight or a small monitor. You like bodybuilders, Muscle magazine is your porn.
Lalafell (Hobbits): Tiny, round, cute, and annoying. If you are a pedophille or just like trolling people, this is your dream race.
All kidding aside, the race you choose doesn’t matter much. We’re talking about 1-2 points in your base stat. If you REALLY are in to min/max when you MMO and you can’t live without those 1-2 points, follow this rule: Tanks should pick Roegadyn and choose Sea Wolves for the sub race. Melee DPS should choose Hyur Highlander. Archers should choose Elezen Wildwoods. Casters should choose Elezen Duskwights and Healers should choose Miqo’te Keepers of the Moon.

Square thinks we'll be creating our characters for hours. I just wanna start beating little bunnies over the head ASAP!
So in this video Square-enix shows off how in-depth the character columniation is in Final Fantasy XIV. I don't really care too much for what my character LOOKS like. I'm pretty sure, no matter what he will be feared by all. Ha ha ha!

Eorzea ― The Making of a Realm #2 (English version) New video shows off wildlife.
"Simply observing the wildlife in your travels across Eorzea will be part of the fun!" That's a quote from the video below. I agree. These models look amazing. One of the things that captivated me most about Final Fantasy XI when I played was, all the animals and creatures just walking around outside the city gates. I don't know what to do about the Final Fantasy XIV ... PC or wait for the PS3? Jimmy?

Plan on leveling any Gathering DoL Class? Check out this guide in best gear for those levels. (20-30)
The most important thing about gathering (especially while leveling) is not missing. Every miss is a waste of time. So I think having maxed out gear, jammed full of Materia is the best way to go. Here’s a list of what I was wearing from level 20-25. I make all of my own gear & add my own Materia.
Head: Velveteen Bandana Lv. 23
Velveteen Wedge Cap of Gathering Lv. 27
Body: Cotton Doublet Vest of Gathering Lv. 21
Velveteen Coatee of Gathering Lv. 27
Hands: Cotton Work Gloves Lv. 20
Velveteen Work Gloves Lv. 30
Waist: Toadskin Survival Belt Lv. 27
Legs: Initiate's Slops Lv. 20
Velveteen Sarouel of Gathering Lv. 25
Feet: Goatskin Espadrilles Lv. 22Read full story...

Beating turn 2 of Coil is pretty simple. If you don't mind dealing with enrage mode & have 3 healz.
Team Gouki & [FC] TAW down turn 2 in 1 shot w/ a new strategy. Visit Gouki.com & TAW.net for more info. This aired live on Gouki.tv. Coil streams every Weds & Saturday.
Basically what's going on here is we wait until ADS gets down to 1 click & he will go into RAGE MODE. At that point he won't do anything else, but spa AOE's. So we just spam AOE heals & burn him down with DPS. Pretty easy, I was kicking myself for not trying other ways after wiping on this stupid balls for weeks.
Thanks for watching.
Here a few links that I've been using to help me get thru those tough times of FFXIV. Please add your favorites in the comments below.
Hello. As most of you know I'm super hype for this Final Fantasy & I've been going hard in the beta since about 5AM today. I'm on Malboro server. My name is Avitas Sibannac. Freind me.
Here's my list of stuff you should know.
Maps - Know your locations. This link is great he has all of the gathering points, dungeons, everything is marked.
Materials & stuff - These guys got everything. I think the meuns are a little Jimmyfied, but once you figure it out, you'll be on your way.
Macros - All da Jimmys need macros right? Maybe not so much early game, but you'll want to understand how they work.
Videos - This Jimmy has it all covered. Check out all of his videos, he covers almost every subject & even your dumbass questions.
Reddit - I love the Reddit for man than just porn. It's my number 1 source for FF info. I've been thru the SE forums & that is all a cluster fuck. Stuff is buired on there & there is a giant congragation of nubfarm there.
I'll be adding more to this list as I move along thru the game & find out what is improtant & not. Plus I'll be working on my own leveling guide for Gathering & Crafting.
Thanks for reading. Please leave any comments or suggestions below.
Join the Gouki Linkshell on Malboro. Just message me & I'll add you. Avitas Sibannac.

Goldsmith I think is 1 of the fastest & cheapest ways to level up a Disciple of the Hand in Final Fantasy XIV. Raw materials are cheap & can be turned into very expensive items. All you need is patience & knowledge of your crafter catalog
I had to move right away because I didn't like that guys ass in my shot in the video. lol.
You can see I'm only synthing with HQ raw Silver Ore. This already gives me a boost of quality. Almost half. I do this because you can collect cheap Silver Ore for a few a days. Then when you have a stack you start to craft. (I know I keep saying this, but it's 1 of my favorite strategies.)
Don't even try to get crazy with any of my crafting techniques until you have Tricks of Trade & Careful Synthesis. I live by those 2 while crafting & they are constantly used.
Step 1: Pop Inner Quiet. ESPECIALLY if you have Rumination. (Carpenter level 15)
Step 2: Look to see if Tricks of the Trade is available.
Step 3: Use Steady Hand.
Step 4: Use Standard Touch. Stop to get any Tricks of Trades that pop up.
Step 5: Use Master's Mend when you are down to 10 Durability. Watch for Tricks of the Trade.
At this point everything depends on how much CP you have left. Use Steady hand if you can, even if you only have enough for 1 Standard Touch afterwards. Remember Tricks of the Trade can pop up anytime & you might get 2 shots. Or get just enough CP to use Standard Touch of Basic Touch.
You can always use Rumination at the end if you need just a little more CP, it's a great back up.
Final Step: Use Careful Synthesis to finish the synth. If you know Careful Synthesis & Basic Synthesis will both get the job done in less than 2 turns, USE CAREFUL SYNTHESIS in finish. IT'S Guaranteed.
Hope you make a lot of HQ & Gil. Good luck.
Thanks for reading. Don't be a Jimmy.

Another exciting episode of whacking trees & rocks for an hour & a half. There's also general discussion about the game we take questions from the stream. Follow us on Twitter. Watch us on Gouki.tv

Something to be excited about is the hot fix coming Monday October 14, 2013. The hotfix will increase the amount of XP gained while gathering & doing LEVE's. So that's great. I've heard dreadful stories about high level crafting. Like it taking over 1500+ gathers to gain a level. How's your GPH then Jimmy?
Episode 6 coming up on Thursday will be about the XP increase. We'll see if it makes a big difference. I'm betting, not that much.
Thanks for watching.
