    Problem is, the things stats do change as the developers balance things out, and even the classes to unlock jobs have changed in the past. It's more complicated than you might think! Patch 3.2, due around Jan-Feb (I hope), will likely change what VIT and/or STR does for tanking jobs, for example.

    Honestly, I have no objection to anyone providing guides at all, but I think as you get into how large the game is you'll realise why we rely on Wikis with public editing systems more than we rely on static pages. =x

    Perhaps there is a half-decent intro guide out there somewhere but every damned major patch there are so many more questions you might ask. xD

    That's the thing - you don't have to go into every little detail in a newbie guide, since you really don't need the specific stats when just starting that. And since this thread exists, that means we could sure use one.

    Even though I haven't started the game yet, I'll try to aid Freya in the construction of that part of our site. I've seen a lot of info abobut the game and think I understand the system a bit already. With a bit of research, nothing is impossible.

    I'll let you know if I ever get around to playing it. My backlog could drown an army.

    Considering the size of the Fat Chocobos I'm kinda surprised we didn't already have a guide or anything. If anyone has questions I can provide answers. I might be a filthy casual but it is not hard to get a hold of me out of the game, lol.

    When I first played the free trial a long while ago, I felt very overwhelmed. This time around, not so much! I also like my starting area much more this time around.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I'm a little all over the place at times with the controls, the damn map and like journal im constantly opening and closing on accident like a right noob. I'm hoping I improve xD I think the touch pad on my PS4 controller is whats causing the problem - I'll blame that.

    I'm new to MMOs, I wasn't really overwhelmed, I'm really enjoying it! Plus, I also am quite spoilt by certain people who help me~ xD

    There is no way anyone can feel overwhelmed if they're in the FC group, just ask away~ :3

    If I remember right you can turn off the touch pad to make it a lot easier. I think that's what I did because I was having the same problem but now I don't.

    I do use it occasionally to help with the map - the map is my other problem! I HATE that damn map!

    But I think I'm missing something to make it easier xD
