              a. "Peace" action will make the pet not doing anything for example
         5. NPC works off of FFXII's ganbit system (YAY!), so they will fight freely.
              a. You can use semi-order for command, so it won't listen to commands it can't actually do.
              b. In general this is a good system. May have problems in end game content where you need more specific commands.
         6. Arcanist magic attack is not that high. The class needs the pet to have its full potential.
         7. Lots of debuff skills like bio, vain, and ruin

VIII. Can we transfer between same server accounts?

    B. We may open this to players, but we will be careful - we don't want RMT (?) to use this.

         2. Bahamut Labyrinth will explain what actually happened.
    C. Bahamut Labyrinth Interesting gimmicks?
         1. Tip: If you don't split and fight in a particular way, you can't win, or you may finish the first part but may not be able to do the 2nd part
         2. At first you'll have 8 players, but mid-point split up in groups
         3. We also have  a lock where you'll need to deal enough DPS in a short span, so you'll need your best gear to complete it.
         4. The Labyrinth isn't just it, but we have it where if you are alone, you'll take 10,000 damage
               a. but the damage can be shared if you have 4 players near you.
    D. Crystal Tower
         1. 24 players alliance raid content
         2. It is finished, but too hard, so we are making it where you can use the finder and join up and enjoy fighting the mobs.
         3. Crystal Tower moved back to 2.1 and is receiving adjustments now.
         4. First spend time getting new gear, this may take 3-4 months.
    E. Primal Fights
         1. We want players to enjoy it, we aren't making it hard on purpose.
         2. The fights are similar to before, but have an extra step so you'll be like "What the..."
         3. Tip: You'll be fighting the primal, but need to think about the map.
XIII. Can we send tells during instance raids?
    A. We don't want players to be mean to others, so at first we have it stopped.
    B. Also we have plans on expanding the duty finder. At this point we may release the /tell feature.
    C. We have new MMO players, so we want existing MMO players to wiat.
XIV. Will there be a Moogle Primal?

    A. Adjusted the drop rate, clear rate, and we checked how much gear for roles there are.
    B. At launch there are no restrictions on the number of needs you can do.

        2. For this reason, we are not putting a restriction on number of needs.
XVII. Racial Stats
    A. Racial stats are really slight as you get higher level and really nothing to worry about.
XVIII. Rare Items and Relics, can they be moved to sub-characters?
    A. No, if you do that, players will rotate 2-3 relics around, and that would not be fair.

    B. Free Companies and Grand Companies will have housing.
          1. *This was asked later in the stream*: Does FC housing have to be in the GC nation you're FC belongs to?
                  a. No, if you decide on all that, the decision becomes hard.
                  b. We want players to decided without blocking motivation.
    C. **Long demo, less talking during this section, unfortunately.
    D. Crafting classes will be important for decoration
    E. Can we have housing in Ishgard and Couthas

    A. Sounds good, I'll talk to the team about it.

        1. As of 2.1, we'll have more dungeons, so at that time we should have it.
