How to Choose your Server

Postby Cobalt Katze » 06/22/2002 @ 02:12 PM

Okay, so when FFXI comes out early next year, we're all going to be faced with a problem.. Randomly-assigned servers. However, IGN has reavealed a little technique to get on the server youu want:

<i>
Since the server that you're assigned to is randomly selected, you can't choose what server you want to be in. The normal solution to this problem is to get your hands on a World Pass and move into the desired server. Since World Passes aren't cheap here's a little trick that I learned from Taiwanese importers that would allow you to go into whatever server you want at no cost. After you created a character and select your starting nation, you can choose to log in right away and play. Don't do it. Instead back out to the top page of the game and go into the top option (Select a Character). The second line of your character's information is the server that he/she is assigned to. If it's not the one you want delete the character (third option on the top page) and make it again. Repeat until you have the server you want. It took me around 10 to 20 minutes before I was able to get to the server that I wanted, so expect to spend a little time doing this.

You can also check out the rest of the article found linked on the IGN PS2 main page for tips on how to import FFXI successfully.

Why would you have to do that? So if my friend is on a different server than me we cant play together unless we get a world pass or we do that little thing you told us?

Thats exactly what he means. I posted about this some time ago actually, but now its a definate confirmation to what I had expected.

Here is the original post:World Pass = Total Crap

Won't this cost alot of money? You have to pay for every character don't you?

No this wont cost a lot of money as you are deleting your character each time until you get on the server that you want. So you still only have ONE character for your account.

Yep - my guess is that you're paying for the storage, as the chars are saved to the game servers.
