So that video pretty much sums up the negative impressionnewcomers to the game *may* get.

I've tried to be optimistic about XIV, and I did point out several things I like about the video. The problem is that I'd seen these things before in other videos of ARR. There isn't really anything new.

The graphics look good... still. The combat looks stale... still.

One thing is for sure though. If there is anyone who plays MMOs simply based on how shiny the spell effects are for casting and abilities, they have met their match. Never before have I seen a level 4 ability look so glorious. Actually, now that I think about it... the 4 second GCD makes sense because if you lowered it to something that seems more reasonable, you wouldn't be able to play out the entire 5 second theatrical version of the spell effect. Not only that, but if you were able to spam them the heat coming off of your GPU would probably lead you to believe Ifrit was in your room with you. How's that for immersion?

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
