Restoration of game servers...?

Recommended Posts



I'm not entirely sure what this is about, but apparently tomorrow, Wednesday November 21st, 2012, they're going to turn the servers back on with a slight roll back to patch 1.23b.


I suppose this was announced, but this is the official announcement from the lodestone: http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/topics/detail?id=778f68b1be2bc870ae2f341ef10bec4dfae14661


Here are some interesting points from the post about some aspects of the game:

  • Increase in anima recovery rate
  • Reduction of all gear repair costs to 1 gil
  • Chance to obtain job-specific weapons on login for players who logged out in an inn room
  • Relaxed requirements for participating in "Bowl of Embers (Extreme)," and for undertaking the quests "To Kill a Raven" and "Living on a Prayer"

The plan was, if 30% or more people were interested in still playing the current incarnation of 1.0, then they'd bring the servers back up a few days after they went down and everything was done and dusted. Now, they'll keep tabs on the server activity, and so long as it stays above a certain point they'll keep them up and running until ARR. Not sure what'll happen after that point.

I have some video footage I'd like to record for a fun little side-project I'm working on. But mostly my sentiment mirrors Deirdre's.


Eva's kind of gone poof into the aetherial rift by now, and I'm not really a huge fan of retroactive RP since it has a habit of changing timelines and such, so if anything we might pop on as an alt and play around a bit if there's any open RP going on or anything. I admit it might be an interesting opportunity for the folks who are aging their characters five years to RP out interactions and such. :)


But for now we're playing through some newer and classic console games and I'm getting back into drawing again so kind of spending a lot of time with that. But if there's some non-canon event, or something we can bring our alt to that would be fun, we're all for that~


I assume everything is going to be as it was at the end of 1.23 with Dalamud still hanging menacingly in the sky and all that?

Well, we'd only be doing it for fun, since everything we do is not going to be saved (story and level progress/weapons/etc).


Personally I want to make my hubby finally see the GC/Dalamud storyline since he is obsessed with the End of an Era trailer. xDD

I'm not uninstalling until I get into testing/ARR launches. I'm keeping a version of this game on my computer even if it's useless!



Yeah, I'm leaving it installed as well. Though it is rather empty on the servers. I just like to log in every once in a while and rummage around. :P
