Can't really argue on the point of quest spamming. Almost all of these are worthless trash quests. I would rather group up in a pt and just slay a shit ton of beasts. Still repetitive but I would rather be able to pick my poison rather then be subjected to one. They nerfed the holy hell out of experience in this phase.

First impressions: I'm very disappointed. I wanted a sequel to FFXI, not another attempt at a WoW clone.


A sequel to FFXI would be FFXI-2. This game is FFXIV. Two completely different games.

And unfortunately, FFXIV is a WoW clone. Endless, random fetch quests and 'kill x of y' quests. Combat that goes so fast that nothing seems meaningful. But what I really dislike, and maybe it will change in the higher levels, is that I can play the game all by myself without ever needing to join a party if I so chose. I understand that this is a good thing for many people but it completely destroys the community for me. I loved having to build a well balanced party in XI to get anything done. What's the point in this game?

I will say that the game does look beautiful and I'm still holding out hope that it will get better at higher levels, but right now I am sad that I already purchased the game.


I think your concern is a bit premature at this current point in the beta. you can do hunting log or level some crafting/gathering classes.  The quest mechanics aren't anything to complain about, because there is more to do. I think you'll find out yourself that the content is story driven based just like any Final Fantasy RPG game that you'll find on consoles.

I'm actually glad they stepped away from FFXI, and evolved into something more accessible.



I started playing the game this morning, and I fucking love it.



The names of these quest is funny. Especially the highlighted one.

 

I borrowed this one, but yes, more upskirt shots.



Great beta. Got to lvl 8. Cant wait for the real game, thats all im gonna play

If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints
