I was able to get my main class (LNC) to 19 almost 20, about 10k exp short which if I didn't have to be at work so early in the morning I would have been 20 for sure... I got Pugilist to 11, on the way to 15 to unlock Dragoon... I got Marauder to 10 for some of the cross-class abilities.

I also got Culinarian to 12 and fishing to 7...

Overall it was a pretty fun weekend, we did get frustrated with some of the issues SE was having, but we can't wait til next weekend!

Tell me what your progress was this weekend on Beta 4, and how do you feel about it?

Only really played saturday night and most of my sunday night, but still.

Marauder to 17, Armorer to 11 and Blacksmith to 8...

Would probably have had more interest in leveling if i was able to leave bloody Limsa's island without having to jump through hoops, just to unlock the jobs i wanted to have. But hey, i wanted my hometown to be by the sea, so i guess some sacrifices were in order...

I'm still a bit on the fence if i want to subscribe or not. I liked my new experiences in the game, but a lot of changes from back when i played 1.0 are also pissing me off a little. (zones, lack of skills, location bound things such as no mining points in all of La Noscea, the inability to just grab a lv.1 weapon and change to that class/job without having to travel the world to "unlock" it)

Started a new character, got cnj to 20 (thanks to zero wait on duty finder for dungeons) and arn to 17. I didn't go 'hardcore' as some people, i would periodically stop and take a break with some ME3 multilayer with some friends.Main story wise, got to the TAM dungeon and stopped. I couldn't be happier with the progress i've made as it's been extremely fun the whole way. Did loads of sidequest. Great weekend and can't wait til next week.

I didn't get to play as much as I wanted because of 3102, nor did I get to play on my new characters I wanted to make. My old 42 THM from the previous game was able to get through the level 10 main storyline quest and I logged out in the inn this morning.

Conjurer 20, Fisher 20, Thaumaturge 10. Wish I could have gone higher with fishing, I really like it.

I got ARC to 20 Twice(made a new guy and leveled it on my 1.0 guy), CNJ to 20 and THM to 11 and abused the DF enough times to have an almost full set of "green"/"red" gear for head start.

I got my Lancer and Marauder to 20. I might try fishing later with the beta extension.

Lancer 20
Pugilist 15
Archer 10
Fisher 4

I think that's all I did so far. Can't wait to continue!

THM 20
Fishing 8
Weaver 6
Goldsmith 7
Alchemist 6

I had so many things to do this weekend so no time to really play but managed to get my THM to 20 at least that's something.

On a different note weaver was the "hardest" to level. He has so many things to craft but they require somewhat more than the rest I've tried so far especially when I had to do the level 5 quest.

Simply did Conjurer 20 and Botanist 15. But I did quite a few extra run of dungeon to help LS member and get another shot at some nice gear, even with capped XP.

Time to shame myself horribly:

Vione Jenneva: lv.12 Conjurer
Rofel Wodring: lv:7 Gladiator
Atalo Gavivi: lv.10 Thaumaturge, lv.1 Goldsmith

I only got to play for about an hour and a half per day, so...yeah. When early access hits though, I'm on vacation, so I'm gonna make that up in spades...

Arcanist and Marauder both 20, played my legacy though so everything else was above 20. I left Marauder at level 1 on purpose so that I could experience the starting storyline in case they didn't add any new classes but even then the first 20 levels were kind of a breeze. I actually had a lot of fun leveling my MRD just on hunting log and FATEs for the most part. I got to 17 before I started running the dungeons with him and had already run them with ACN so I didn't get the big boost of XP. Hunting for an active FATE is no more time consuming than traveling all around for quests so yea, it was much better than I expected.

I didn't get as far as I wanted, because I ended up splitting time between 2 characters (because of 3102).

Still got ARN to 20 and WVR 19 on the main among other classes, despite that setback.

I'm sad that I got my harvesting classes on the JP server alt (14 Miner, 10 Botanist, 1 Fisher) higher overall than the main's (8 Miner, 10 Botanist, 3 Fisher) however.

20 ARC, 20 LNC, 8 CNJ, 8 MRD. I purposefully put off leveling any of the other classes. I figured I would try to get at least some usage out of my future Moogle Cap. I did Culinarian a bit as well, but I'll probably put off leveling that until a bit later.

I had a lot of fun this weekend. It took me a while to get the hang of LNC, and ARC is still my favorite class by far. I think my most frustrating moment was attempting a FATE outside of Limsa Lominsa. Targeting while surrounded by a thousand Carbuncles was painful.

Only got CNJ to 18 and ARC to 17. Did storyline to the dungeons (husband really wasn't up for them, and we're trying not to get ahead of each other like we did with XI. Also did all the side quests possible in Gridania and Limsa (I think?). We were playing pretty casually after Friday night. Early Access I'm going to work on my Botanist and Cooking. Wanted to have plenty of LeveQuest queues to do those, however.

Had acl reconstruction on the ninth.... nothing else to do buy lay down with my leg up and play

Sorry to hear that... but at least you had FFXIV... I had a similar experience 2 years ago when DCUO came out on the PS3... I was recovering from surgery for a couple of months and played almost non-stop.
