*Snip*

I never really got into WoW, so I'm not sure how much FFXIV borrows from it. What I will say is that it's premature to make up your mind after playing through only level 16. It's an MMO - for better or worse, it takes a long time to come into all the content the game has (and maybe that's poor design).

I will also say that I've heard the exact opposite of your opinion; some people seem to think you have to rely too much on grouping up. *shrugs*


Oh, I agree it's a bit early, it's just at the moment they really haven't provided me with anything to make me want to continue to pay for the game.

1. The game has thrown walls of text at me so I just click through most of the quests.  I have no idea what's going on for the most part and don't care.

2.  Right now the game isn't that interesting.  I run doing generic quest to quest and filling out my hunting log.  I might start crafting again.

3.  The story quests can actually be fun, though those are few and far between.

The game may get insane later, I don't know because right now I can't actually login.


It seems the story really starts to pick up at level 44. Pretty much every quest after that is full blown story rather than fluff. The game does get better as it goes Twesterm. I was very doubtful myself for a long time.

God this song is AMAZING.

The game definitely doesn't do a good job at displaying its main strengths to new players. I do agree that there is a lot of text, so myself skim over most of it. Mainly the sidequests. I would suggest skimming over a bit slower so you can at least understand what's going on. :P 

Story quests become very plentiful around level 22, but it does feel like the story begins to move much more slowly. From what I've heard, it really picks up later on. I also will say that the second primal boss battle I did last night was SO much fun.

Also, a lot of your fun will be dictated by the class you chose. What are you currently playing as? I found arcanist/scholar to be really fun, but gladiator and archer I find super boring. Marauder/Warrior is hella fun though.

I've been trying to log in for 6 hours, now. Don't think I'll get in, but I'm having fun watching this Dota 2 tournament while I spam my log in button.



Server errors are RIDICULOUS today.

I find the best time to log in is around midnight when most of everyone in NA is asleep. hopefully this will be a thing of the past on wednesday.

What server are you on? Legacy servers tend to have more arcanists currently due to the fact that many 1.x players have experienced the other classes and wanted to immediately dive into something new. That being said, I myself haven't seen many scholars (and they don't have carbuncles!) on Sargatanas. Most of them insist on becoming summoners and waiting for hours to queue up for dungeons.

No idea why, because I find scholar to be the most interesting and fun class to play right now. Nothing like microing your own pet while dancing around boss fights yourself.

Still haven't been able to log on. It's been an 11 hour battle today. I think I concede. I'll wait until wednesday to play (since the servers will be down the entire evening tomorrow). So far my favorite things about this game are the graphics, art style, the feeling of being in an alive world, the supportive and cooperative community, the amazingly fun boss battles, and of course playing with the best guildmates a man can ask for. 



i joined the carpenter's guild, how do i change job so i can make stuff?
