Something new

an actual update!

so, some good things about FFXIV:
one thing I'm really enjoying is that it's a completely new experience. as a long time player of FFXI, everything had naturally been figured out. there was walkthroughs, and information on everything. nothing was unknown. but, with XIV, since it's brand new, nothing is really new, so everything is still just waiting to be discovered. so i find that super exciting.

for example, I decided to go exploring a bit, an came across an area that was basically abandoned. there were no other adventurers there, so it was like I had just discovered something new, and actually really pretty.
I'll have to head back there, and take a few screens to show.

additionally, I'm really liking the job and combat system. to change jobs, all you have to do is change your equipped weapon. each job levels individually, but you also have a physical level that raises your stats, so you have more control over how your character develops. also, any abilities or actions gained through any job can be freely equiped by other jobs. so, so you can really customize how you fight. so that's cool.

I'll post more about the leve system, and other things... soon. we'll see how it goes.


  1. That's the best thing with new MMOs. A fresh start, for everyone, and a whole new world to explore.

  2. Eh, it still has a long way to go, I think.

  3. please tell me there will be titties in this game...

  4. Might try it,that combat system always lured me into that type of games

  5. crunky:
    no naked titties, but there are boobs a plenty.

  6. cool man, yeah is it better than WoW? =D
