Might want to add that this will probably be only available to North American residents as SQEX USA is kicking out any members to its site that do not reside in "the supported territory" (North America) as of tonight.

C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\metainfo should contain the torrent to the game update (which is 4.5gb). Downloading using torrent client (utorrent, bitlord etc) is better than using the game client update because sometime it can crash and make you download all over again. If you happen to see other folders in the ffxiv-beta folder, go to the metainfo of those folder and download it. After you finish downloading it just place the file in the patch folder and open the game client to update using the file you just downloaded. Sorry if this doesn't make sense...I'm pretty bad giving instructions.
