The Player Previously Known as Foosh created a steam group for us http://steamcommunity.com/groups/alphaprimeffxiv

I’m not sure how you join it if you don’t have steam so XD /links this page to the rest of ya

This page will also serve as an FAQ for Foosh who asks me endlessss questions, I might as well publish it here -_-


Q: From Foosh – in order of loot priority, who gets higher priority? need or greed?

A: Need > Greed. When running with friends it’s best just to Greed instead of passing, so as the piece of gear is not lost if no one really ‘Needs’ it. They did mention implementing a system where you can accumulate ‘points’  to use towards Need or Greed roles, and you will have weekly limits. No news yet of this since it was mentioned last year. If implemented, then passing may be needed so as not to waste your weekly allowance.


Q: From Foosh – What does Piety affect and would it add more dmg boost to ARC and THM?

A: PIE specifically effects MP right now. The PIE > MP convert ratio will probably change in Phase 4 so I’m not going to elaborate on that right now. Currently there does not seem to be ‘secondary’ stats towards damage as it did in 1.0 (example, primary was dex secondary was pie for archer).


Q: From Foosh – Does PIE add more MP than INT then? And INT is still primary damage for THM right?

A: PIE is the only stat that adds MP. Int only increases magic damage potency for BLM and THM currently. For a quick stat reference, I’ve posted this article.


Q: From Foosh – So are the formulas pretty similar to FFXI? Or do I need to learn the affects of stats and attribution from a fresh start?

A: I suggest forgetting FFXI when playing FFXIV 😛


Q: From Foosh – So when I level Archer, my bonus attributes all goto DEX. Do the bonus stats carry over when I change jobs? Or is each job independent of its own bonus stats?

A: For now yes, I’m sure during Phase 4 testing we’ll know if secondary stats will come into play. The bonus carries over when you go from a class > a job. But each class has their own set of bonus stats to apply.


Q: From Foosh – What do the <> next to people’s names mean?

A: If you mean the letters enclosed in << >>, that designates their free company initials. For example mine is <> which stands for Dancing Mad free company. When we make Alpha Prime’s company for you guys it will be <>. We can choose what our initials look like on name tags.

  2. When Phase 4 opens, are we going to be making our characters on the Excalibur server? (can we do that?) or will we be shifting to Excalibur after Phase 4?

    • A: Make character on Excalibur. Only Legacy characters are shifting right now. There will be no more shifts after Monday July 15th.

      • What? the resolution of the game is independent of my TV size. 3/4th of my 50″ will take 3/4th of a 60″!

        but i am looking to buy a new TV 😉

      • I really don’t know what else you can do >< pretty strange that your draw distance on ps3 is bad too? In fights with circles on the ground, I just draw back as far as i can so I can see everything

      • the circles are mostly ok. it was mainly the ifrit fight where i had trouble seeing where the ground lit up. well, i saw it glow red, i just didn’t see where the safe spots were.

      • Hmm his patterns are pretty predictable if you’ve done the fight a few times. Just the cracks on the ground might get ya, I turn on battle filter so I know what coming from the reading his ‘readies’ blabla test

  3. Omg omg. I found you guys! This is Cayden! Are you guys all playing ffxiv now? I’m planning in buying it when it comes out!
