I dont play it anymore.... but imo, its the ONLY worthwhile mmo out there.
Maybe Im biased though, I love everything Final Fantasy... and considered FF11 to the best MMO before 14 too.
I like that its PVE focused, and that it sticks with the Tri-fecta of Tank-Healing-DPS, and teaches you to fit into roles.
Theres nothing wrong with a group focused pve game, where you work together with others to reach goals.
Its challengeing and fun, and as simple as "pick one outta 3 roles" might sound, theres plenty of choice and sub-roles, dual purpose ones.
PLD, WAR, SUM, SCH, BRD, DRG, MNK, NIN, BLM, WHM, RDM, DNC, AST, DRK, GUN, MAC, SAM....
Tons of jobs + subjobs combos, and nothing really plays 100% the same, so theres plenty of choice in finding that 1 thing that suits you best.
(ontop of the crafting, gathering.. ect)
The player economy is centered around player made stuff (though you can get by, with just rewards from quests while leveling).
playing the auction house (buying cheap, selling at more, when things dip ect) or just mass producing items in demand (if your a crafter), and live off of gathering mats, plenty of ways to get by in game.

I have been keeping my eye on FFXIV and I'm happy it is doing well. If there was ever an MMO I would get into, it would be that one. However, in order to get a decent amount of value out of it I would have to play it quite a lot and forgo many other games.
This.... I was basically addicted to FF11.... spendt way too much time on it.Last edited by JRPGfan - on 15 August 2019
