I popped into XIV last night to take a screenshot for the writing contest and I was all like "holy sh*t Atomos is eating aetheryte crystals and there's airships in the sky and the moon is about to crash into us wtf happened last patch?!"
Yeah, I'm excited about XIV too.
FFXI's collection is $20 on Steam or Amazon, which comes with the first month free, well worth it. It'll be 2-3 months before XIV is available for sale again. They're in alpha testing of the new systems at the moment.
Just find a good linkshell here on the ZAM forums before you pick a server, and you'll be having fun in XI in no time. And if you turn out to hate it, you're only out twenty bucks and you can wait til Jan or Feb for XIV to see if you like it any better.
