    Hi guys

    I heard that after phase 3 everything you have done will be gone

    but in Phase 4 they will keep the character you created and the FFXIV 1.0 characters

    does that mean if I level up my character in Phase 4 and I will have the same progress I did in Phase 4 in the Official Release?

    If I had to guess, not for another month at the very least, but who knows at this point.

    Where did you read that? I didn't find anything official.

    And this weekend is definitely still phase 3.

    There was something I was curious about regarding keeping our characters from phase 4. When we start playing on early access / release will it just be our characters (levels, items, gil) that are preserved or their quest line progress also?

    Everything, in my eyes it wouldn't make any sense if they would reset your quests but let you keep the levels...! :x

    Yeh this definitely makes more sense I just hadn't seen anyone say which it was. Thanks for the clarification.

    They update this file every 3-4 weeks.

    It is written that p3 will last 3 weeks (or so), so lets say that next weekend (5th-7th of July) will be the last one. After that, other 2-3 weeks are required for debugging. Beta phase 4 will start on the 26th of July (or on the 2nd of August), trust me! ;)

    I think after the 5th-7th will be another Phase 3 tbh.

    Look what Yoshi-P wrote in his new Letter from the Producer:

    Half way, so 2 more to go, no? :D

    yeah lots of hope grasping straws.

    It's been stated that P3 will last until July 14th.

    Napkin math suggests August 9th would be phase 4, but I don't mind being wrong about that being too late.

    Multiple sites that got keys for beta to give away reported the 14th, just google it.

    Thanks! August the 2nd or the 9th will be the dates, depending on how long will they let the debugging phase last

    I only say the 9th because
    Early access won't exceed a week early
    Time between open beta and early access is 1-3 days

    The amount of time between phase 3 end and phase 4 start is going to completely depend on how broken the Duty Finder is and if they run into any game engine stability issues. They're basically being forced to cram the two tests into one test period.


    Yeah, we should be able to access all the content available in the game once beta phase 4 hits. Right now they've purposely limited the amount of content in order to keep people from over investing as well as to avoid spoilers.

    I wish it would start off a bit earlier in July tho, because I won't have much time during the next 6 months :balling:
