(Really, the question was on the correct procedure of installing it)
I've gone through all my research and it just matter of putting the pieces together with running i3 it self. I'll try the method enma did and see the result.
I've watched and tried downloading i3 but, people had different ways that didn't actually work.

If I get stuck or, something isn't right. I'll sure do a post about it.

Thanks.

I did install those, I did a fresh install of arch and then installed i3 and all. Following the arch docs they said it was mandatory for an graphic environment.
