Final Fantasy XIV (PC/PS4)

  • @JustCallMeBuddy I guess I got lucky, I created a char on Ultros right after posting here. Gilgamesh is really always full.

  • @JustCallMeBuddy

    I managed to make several characters on Gilgamesh by simply refreshing the server list every few minutes while watching podcasts or playing something else. It's annoying for sure, but it always worked for me eventually.

    By the way: It probably doesn't help, but Ultros is open for new characters right now.

  • @YamiZetsumei said in Final Fantasy XIV ARR - Allies Assemble!:

    Hey Allies,

    I'm trying to compile people response to the move to Ultros and get an idea of what people are planning to do for it. I've made a survey at the link below. If you could find a few moment to take it, that would be AWESOME!!! I'm mainly doing this to get the response of the people who are in the FC on Gilgamesh, but if you are making a new character or transferring from another server, I'd love to hear those story as well. Thank you for your time and being wonderful. Love and Respect.

    What's the motivation behind the server transfer? I thought it's because making new Characters on Gilgamesh is too hard, but it doesn't appear to be much easier on Ultros. Is there any chance we could stay on Gilgamesh if the majority of the FC is in favor?

  • @Fey Damiani explained his motivations for the move after the last Eorzean Allies stream. There's a bonus part after the main end card where he goes though it. I've linked the Twitch video below and gave a time mark to look for. He said he will be reviewing Stormblood and being on the Ultros Server will help him do that better/faster. That seems to be his primary motivation from his explination. Plus, he notes that on the Primal Datacenter you can create a private party finder for cross server play so even if you can't get on Ultros, as long as you are on that Datacenter, you should still be able to play with everyone.

  • @YamiZetsumei Gotcha, that makes sense then. Unfortunately, I don't get to play with the allies a lot due to my time zone, but I guess I'll still pony up the 10$ and transfer to Ultros. Maybe some other EU/UK folks are gonna join with Stormblood. : )

  • @Fey That sucks. I could see not wanting to put up the cash in that case. He did say the "might" do an all day stream when it first comes out so you could get some time in then. If not, I pretty much play all day on the weekends. I'm sure there might be some overlap times there with your zone an mine. That is if you're cool with playing with a noob.

  • @Fey don't know what timezone you are in but I am in CET

  • @YamiZetsumei I'm always cool with playing with anyone, so if you need to run a dungeon or trial or whatever and see me online, I'm always happy to jump in! There simply doesn't appear to be a lot of PvE content that really requires cooperation, and duty finder parties where everyone is just silently going through the motions are not what I'm looking for in an MMO.

    @fettouhi Nice! I'm in CET+1, so I guess we should run into each other once I can get back to FFXIV.

  • I just resubbed to FFXIV only to find I had been locked out the FC house and my chocobo was running wild in the Lavender Beds. I like the idea of jumping servers to find some Allies to run content with.

    Is Ultros a thing? Or is it still in progress?

  • @Calio I believe it's still a work in progress, however, the move to Ultros will be finalized come June as per the explanation by Damiani linked earlier by YamiZetsumei.

  • Anyone know how this Amazon Stormblood pre-order thing works? Still need to get my code and was wondering if that's how I should get it. Do you get the code for the items when you pre-order or when the game comes out? Saw some people flying on the cloud already so was wondering.

  • @YamiZetsumei You actually don't need to preorder the game to get the promotion. From what I can tell, if you make a gaming purchase on Amazon of $20 or more, you get the promotional code from them as a bonus which you then submit to get the items.

  • @YamiZetsumei There's been reports of some folks getting the promotional code immediately despite the terms stating that preordered items will have the code delivered after they're released and/or shipped. If you've placed a preorder for Stormblood already, you can try cancelling the order and placing a new one to see if the code is delivered instantly.

    Alternatively, you can purchase any video game related item for $19.99 or more to qualify for the promotion. Do note, it has to be sold by either or Amazon Digital Services LLC to be eligible. Personally, I purchased a Final Fantasy XIV Online: 60 Day Time Card as my qualifier and received the promotional code not too long afterward.

  • Letting everyone know. I pre-ordered Stormblood though Amazon 2 days ago and just go my Amazon items code. So it works if you pre-order, you don't have to wait. But now I'm having trouble registering my Stormblood Early Access code. X/ Anyone experiencing this? I was emailed my code and logged in to Mog Station to activate it, but it's saying its an invalid code.

  • @YamiZetsumei Did you register the promotional code here first before logging on to Mog Station? If not, you have to register it on that website first which will, in turn, grant you a new code to register on Mog Station for the benefits.

  • Not gonna lie, getting pretty hype for the new Stormblood expansion, even though I stopped playing FFXIV before Heavensward came out. Though if I do come back to it, I'm in the predicament of do I try to get into Gilgamesh where my cousin plays, or follow EZA to Ultros. I'd probably restart a new character either way. hmm decisions decisions.

  • @Anaithsol Yeah. I did that. It took me to a screen that had pictures the Red Mage Minion, Ear Rings, and Stormblood early access with my code for Mog Stations. It's that code that I'm using in Mog Station that it says is invalid.

  • @YamiZetsumei Pretty odd. Have you made sure the code you acquired matches the region on your registered license? If that's not the issue, you should contact support and explain the situation. Alternatively, you can cancel your initial preorder for Stormblood and place another to acquire a new Early Access code.

    @Kenny I just returned to the game as well after a long hiatus that started not too long after Heavensward was released. I've since planted myself on Ultros with a brand new character in preparation for the official server move, but I must admit that Gilgamesh is a pretty solid choice especially if you have family situated there.

  • @Anaithsol Another update. I called in to support. Turns out you can't preorder Stormblood though Amazon if you got the original game though Steam. My bad. I canceled Amazon and got it though Steam.
