    2 questions:

    1. Is there a way to find the IPs for data centers/servers for pinging purposes?
    2. What is considered a good response time for double weaving?

    So, after a few years (cataracts are a bitch) might finally be returning to pick the story back up. My user interface is all sorts of screwed up (because cataracts are a bitch) and not sure how to undo all the "fixes" I tried to make the interface more readable. And apparently they removed abilities so I have no idea what I'm doing. I guess some dungeons still don't have trust or whatever NPC support added yet? Trying to make sense of quest log, looks like Dust Vigil for a quest and Bardam Mettle for MSQ. Do they not have some sort of NPC support or am I not looking at the right menus to access them? I guess my main issues are to reset the UI and figure out some way to get back into playing my class without getting other people killed.

    Dungeon NPCs are up to end of Heavensward right now, so you could run a couple of those to get back into groove

    UI should have a “restore defaults” option.

    NPC helpers aren’t available in Stormblood expansion yet, that’s coming in 6.4…you can try some of the lower level dungeons with them to practice if you need to get back in the swing of things. I’d recommend playing a DPS job and observing what the tank and healers are doing.

    tried uninstall/reinstall and same thing.

    Returning after....13 years. Just wanted to check the current state of the game and installed on M1 MacBook Pro. Quick technical and general impressions.

    The game feels and plays very smoothly, as a seasoned XI player I felt at home right off the bat. So sad that I’ll never have the time.

    On technical side The game runs at highest settings with a solid frame rate. Dual Shock PS4 is supported, along with all other mainstream controllers like x360, Switch, Ps5, etc. . No technical problems or whatsoever so far.

    I am impressed overall, will casually play around every now and then!

    I mean, it's 13 years old - anything more then a step up from a TI-82 should be running smooth.

    Silicon chip transition was a bit painful afaik, apparently they solved all performance related issues in May which was a pleasant surprise.

    One thing I've noticed in the game is that...nobody talks. Absolutely nothing goes on the public chat, which is a bit different than what I was used to in XI. Is this how things are normally in the XIV?

    Yes. The mods actually will ban people for reportable behavior/harassment/trolling. So people are quiet or overly friendly in public. Your free company or LS chat can still be toxic as long as no one gets their fee fees hurt and reports it.

    XIV generally doesn't have that "forced to work with people you don't want to" vibe to it, so conversation is going to be more on the minimal side outside of FCs or chosen linkshells. Limsa is probably going to be the most chatty location overall due to the aetheryte orientation to MBs. Some think it makes the game worse. Others don't miss the XI-style dick waving or merc spam. Inevitably, if you want a more social experience, it's up to you to seek it out.

    Enjoying the way things are currently. I only have limited time periods I can play, and the party seeking dynamic would make it unplayable for me.

    Reached level 13 and things have been rather fast despite playing totally solo.

    You'll hit your first MSQ dungeon in a few levels, but they're pretty snoozy. Only tricky part is if you're playing a tank, as some might expect you to multi-pull and your gear probably isn't there for that if that's the case.

    Can just do it with NPCs at first to learn the ropes

    I’d recommend doing the hall of the novice training sessions. Even as an mmo vet or noob it will guide you through the basics of XIV party play for your job. And you also get pretty decent level 15 gear for your job and an XP bonus ring.

    Career Ranger here You are right, my gear mostly consists of what I get from Archery Guild quests and main story line.

    Thanks for the valuable advice guys, so far all I've done was to level up through easy monsters outside of the city. I'll start getting more into skill building events.

    If you were a career Ranger in XI you might want to look into the Machinist job once you reach Heavensward. Machinist is the Ranger equivalent in XIV in that it’s the selfish DPS that goes pew pew. Archer (and later Bard) is a ranged DPS but also party support

    In that case, early dungeons are just going to be spamming your AoE until bosses, then you use your STs.

    Oh snap, just read in detail about Machinist going to be a hard choice!

    At one point I actually asked myself “ok, should I really be just spamming my skills all the time?” I guess it is mostly “yes” for now.
