Hey guys, totally new to FFXIV, just played a little on the trial account and now thinking of getting this game since Shadowbringer getting good reviews..

1. Cheapest way to get the whole game in PC?

I see in official site they are selling the FINAL FANTASY® XIV ONLINE COMPLETE EDITION [PC DOWNLOAD] -- should I buy the EU or US version? I'm seeing alot of you guys in EU, why is that?

2. If go EU, how's the latency like from KL?

3. I've already got a character lvl 20-ish on trial, not sure which server but I think I selected US for it. How to switch or I have to abandon this character totally if want to switch to EU?

4. This game requires monthly sub right? Again, EU is cheaper than US?

5. Can I play in trial in EU server? Which server shall I join for most Msian players?

Thats all for now guys, will add if I think of anything.

Thanks in advance!

if u buy EU u pay in euros, if US u pay in dollars

the EU/US version only for game version, not server location. U can choose JP/EU/NA datacentre for servers for example. for us latency to JP servers is ok around ~110ish

no idea if u lose ur trial char, but no biggie if u start back. the grind is still a longggg way ahead

i play in Tonberry, the server is locked for now though. u cant create any new chars here for the moment. u can pay to transfer worlds later if u would like to just play first

I see, will I have to re-download the whole game again for EU version? And do I need VPN to be able to purchase EU version?

So this means I will be able to join JPN server with you guys even if I buy US version?

1. last i saw in www.cdkeys.com they selling ShB complete edition [EU] for RM120+. not sure if the offer still there..can try check a few more websites for price comparison.

2. EU or NA account is only based on the account registration, the server u connected u can still choose Japan for (Asian server), which is OK.

3. Yes, if u created NA account then u needa buy NA codes. I created NA account before & i bought wrong code, EU code. so i created EU account since i cnt find ppl to trade with.

4. based on my observation, EU is cheaper in the longer subscription. 180days is about RM240+ after conversion, which is about RM40+ monthly.

5. Most Malaysian / SEA / Oceanic players chose Japan Data Center. For the server, based on the English speaking community order will be - Tonberry > Masamune > Kujata > Asura > Typhoon...i myself i chosen Ramuh as i didnt know about this & luckily found English speaking community there..

no, you dont need to redownload the game. no, you dont need VPN to play EU account. As NA / EU is only for your account, not the game.

Awesome possum. Managed to get into Kujata yesterday after 2 hours wait hehe.

OK will probably level my trial character all the way to max allowable and decide if getting this game is worth it.

One thing that I do not like is lack of voice acting. Does it get better as I progress into newer expansions?

The game opens up when you hit the max level.

Altho there's more voice acting in the newer expac but don't expect a full voice acting kind.. the voice acting is more on the cutscenes

Another question:

I read about having a potion to change race that can be obtained from quest? Which level will I be getting that quest? Or if there's even such potion?

If you just get the chocobo, then it still long way to finish xD

Yup, last MSQ lvl is lvl 50,but fret not since it was 2 tank 2 healer 4 dps battle. The one I struggled with was Midgardsomr, keep dying.. luckily didn't get kick out..

After the fight with Garlean empire can get the fantasia.

Finished arr chapter last night at lvl 65 for samurai. Other job still zero because I wanna rush to shadowbringers before my subscription end huhu..

Btw, anyone bought the expansion from play-asia for PC digital version? Was wondering any difference (extra items etc) if buy from official Mog Station?

Err trouble guys.. How do you guys buy the EU version of the game??

I bought through their official site and I'm getting Error i2501 when try to enter the verification code in Mog Station.

I paid using credit card issued here and address I also put here but country is UK...

Am I in trouble and has someone encountered this before?

Usually when that happens is either your bank block the transaction or SE themself blacklist. You called your bank to comfirm if your card have any issue 1st. If theys ay everything is fine. You might wan to contact SE customer service about it. They usually will ask you the following question:
1.Why are you in malaysia but plan/playing with an EU acc?
Just tell them the truth on what and why.

And probaly will ask for your detail to proof that you're in malaysia/card holder. Just send them a copy with watermark.
