    What about paying for this shit?

    I see a card registration option, yet it doesn't seem like you can actually do anything as far as direct billing - its Click-and-Buy (which is a nightmare apparently) or UltimatePay only.

    Excited as I am about ARR, if the payment options are still annoying... yeah.

    You can add a credit card as a payment option, when you go to register new payment options, is that still click and buy? doesn't seem that way, as you can choose either or

    Its really very unclear based on the options. My best guess is that maybe the ClickandBuy or UltimatePay options then act as a "processor" or something? I miss just being able to fucking have them bill me directly without a middleman or some external body handling payments and muddling shit up.

    I'm not really sure what the point of registering my credit card would be, if you're still required to create a ClickandBuy account too..

    No no middle man, I just tried it and was able to add a card directly as a payment method without having to go through CB or UP, but yea I agree its a very confusing system atm.

    So, re-reading this, it's automatic billing so long as we actually have an active option/character? It seems kind of silly for them to just not simply state that clearly. At least one need not fuck around with the Crysta stuff now.

    Yeah, selecting "About payment methods" is specifically for buying Crysta for some reason, so they don't mention direct credit card billing. If you go to "Register/Update Payment Method", you should be able to register a credit card for direct billing.

    Not playing 14 or 11, I myself have never needed to use any kind of billing tied to SE accounts. But, yea Ive been pretty busy for the past year, thanks for asking, my wife and I moved, visited the Caribbean also.

    I vaguely remember them saying they weren't gonna do that after all. But I can't recall and have no proof or links.

    I, too, vaguely recall the discontinuation of the dual-sub discount. (I think it was only ever a temporary thing and it ended in early 2011.)

    What is the main way to XP? Questing or Party XP?

    There should be enough quests to get 2-3 classes to 50. FATEs, guildleves, dungeon crawls, and a few other mechanics do very well in filling in the blanks. Grinding open-world monsters (party or solo) will probably be the least-effective method of leveling up.

    Phases 1 and 2 were not perfect indications of the leveling curve due to obvious gaps, but the standard leveling path should basically be:

    1. Pick up all available quests
    2. Plot a route, doing every quest along the way, prioritizing class/job quests; finish an area before moving on to the next
    3. Run dungeons as soon as you meet the entry requirements as long as doing so will not involve sitting around waiting for people; dungeon experience falls off as you match and then outlevel the mobs inside, and gear upgrades will benefit you the most if you level into them
    4. Participate in FATEs when convenient
    5. As hunting log objectives appear, finish them before moving on; usually this will involve killing a few extra of a mob you're already killing for a quest

    Once quests are exhausted, you can still level solely off FATEs, dungeons, and the hunting log (progress is on a per-job basis). Until phase 3, we won't know what the most efficient routes are, but in phases 1 and 2, for example, there was a certain period of leveling where the most efficient exp/hr was actually doing a particular cycle of FATEs.

    It was a good idea to party up during quests as well. I had a pick-up and we finished an entire zone for our levels. If you have a hunting quest any mobs killed with the party are counted towards anyone with the quest active. Don't know if it had a range limitation or not. Correct me if I am wrong about that, though.
