The Magitek is cool, but at the end of the day it's just a mount. It was fun watching that but is it really worth the hours you put into the game and the monthly fee? I doubt it.
A Realm Reborn is a good game, I'm just going to wait until it eventually goes Free to Play to bother wth it.
Don't hold your breath, because like FFXI that will not happen. Anyways you're Lv16, nothing really worth remembering stuff at that early levels. You'll see my point when you level up more, and when you team up with groups. In the end of the day the game feels more like a Final Fantasy title more than a WoW in my humble opinion.
