There were also manaburns and then SMN burns, which worked especially well after Level Sync was introduced - so long as at least one person was low level, they could level people even in their 70s.

My SMN got burned from level 37 to level 60 or so. At least with SMN burn on SMN, I was participating and not just leeching.

Don't forget about the EARLY days when DRG was the best DD. In those days, every hit of a multi-hit WS returned TP. Dragoons were Penta-spamming beasts.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Poor DRG, the howls of rage when Pentathrust got nerfed echoed all over the internet.

I think I got old. I remember our static had PLD/BLM/WHM/DRG/DRK/RNG. Ahhh...the delights of doing light skillchains with DRK/DRG. Magic bursts from BLM. Then BLM burn parties were invented and we had to walk uphill both ways to our leveling spots.

One of my favourite parties I can still remember was PLD(me) - DRK(my best friend) - RDM - WHM - BLM - BLM. We were fighting crabs in Kuftal and double MBing Freeze AM off the SC set up by PLD+DRK. A LS mate of mine was also in Kuftal in another party and once he saw how our party was operating, he kept asking me to let him know if a spot opened up. IIRC the RDM was throwing some MBs in there as well (WTF else was he doing aside from refresh? lol).

Nah I don't think I can handle more than 1 mmo at once. And I'm not willing to do that because I want to stay focus on 1 game only, I can't even play more than 1 character in a mmo orz I tried it but it failed (I'm not a multitasking person?). Friend of mine usually play multiple games at once, i really have no idea how he manage his time seriously. i always think he has more than 24 hours in one day

PuppetBURNS were the best.

Get 5 pups all with Stormwalker, deploy them all at the same time and have them all stupidly cast Drain instead of a Tier 4 and you just laugh and laugh and laugh as each puppet dies 1 by one..

Well finally announced... Dust 514 free to play (been announced for a year now lol)

Defiance B2P (just buy the game for 60 bucks after that no subscription fees, but there will be items malls for exp/script boosts etc etc)

and well we know FFXIVs subscription model..

so basically FFXIV will be the only game Ill have to spend money on outside the game purchase.. in that case Ill be able to play all 3 just fine

For those talking about Dust514 as a possible second and break, yes it is free and went open beta today. The game is quite a bit of fun and has a decent progression to it similar to the EVE Online system. But I think Dust514 will make a nice compliment to any MMO people are playing.

As for multiple MMOs at the same time, EVE Online has always been one I've kept playing even when trying others such as FFXI, FFXIV (for the VERY SHORT time I played), Currently playing Dust514 as well, SWTOR, WoW (sadly in my younger years). Gah there are a not of other MMOs I've played too.

I played FFXI for about 6 years. During that time, I tried I few mmos that never held any weight for me. WoW of course for a short time, and a few f2ps (PWI, Martial Empires, Aion, etc) and I always went back to ffxi. Even today, I play Tera online (which is an amazing game btw), but I would go to FFXI in an instant if it wasnt so absolutely impossible to find a copy of it where i currently am, or finding a digital download on the net (cant access amazon, steam, etc payment systems where I am ><

I'd probably have to start from absolute scratch if I did manage to get my hands on a copy because I doubt I could find/remember my old acct info, but it'd be my pleasure toļ¼Here's hoping!

Swiftskye I had some of the same issues when trying to get a digital download of FFXI a few months back. I actually got mine from the Square Enix site it self. when I did I also got an awesome in game item that made getting the first 30 level pretty slick.

Thanks for the info Blu, I'll check it out! :)

Y'know speaking of Betas, I'm actually playing the Dust 514 beta on my PS3 right now (just finished downloading not 2 hours ago), and its surprisingly pretty good, even with the obvious bugs and glitches. I might think about making that my little pet until ARR :x

If developer interviews are any indication, that game is going to fail hard. They apparently decided to make an Elder Scrolls MMO. I think that's about as much thought as they put into it.

TBH I'm not expecting anything groundbreaking, but I really like the Elder Scrolls world and couldn't pass it up. I never had the chance to get my FFXIV fail-rage on... Gimme a break and let me make up for it here.

It's always sad when good single-player franchises get the idea into their head that they need to make an MMORPG, and then proceed to labour tirelessly (and ultimately fruitlessly) on what amounts to little more than another drop in the ocean of like-minded, misguided projects, destined to be swallowed up in that prototypical, blue-grey mass...

So did I. But actually I am quite sure it won't manage to attract me by the time it launches after seeing this screenshot.
http://elderscrollsonline.com/en/media/screenshots/325
It's always the same problem: I am an artstyle ... male ... *****... an artstyle callboy, I guess, and although I know WoW
would, theoretically, have been a great game just like TERA and possibly RIFT, and SWTOR, at least for a short while,
I never managed to lay hand on them, simply because my throat would convulse in disgust at the sight of golden dragon
head pauldrons spewing purple flames out of gem-adorned jaws while the neon-red-white eyes swirl in a never-ending
dance of lollipop madness. It would not convulse if it was a borderlands game. So the point is not the artstyle per se either.
But from a MMO in an ostensible medieval fantasy setting, I expect a bit of toned-down, "stylish" realism while I toss
around totally unrealistic fireballs. Not bombshell boobs. Not ***-wiggling superwomen. Not childporn lolitas. Not Duke
Nukem, not Kung-Fu Panda, and not SuperdragonkillersephirothXXXmadkillerofdarkdoomdarkness. Just a sword, a leather
gauntlet, my sturdy rusty chainmail, and lots of good friends and battlebrothers. I want to be the hero, and I want my friends
to be the heroes. Not our swords.

I would love to honestly be able to state that graphics don't matter. But the fact is, while pixel count matters little, the style
of the art seems to matter a lot to me. I simply can't help it.

I'm the same way about art style, though I don't mind the whitewashed look of anime-inspired artistic directions like TERA. Bioware games have gotten a touch better, if only a touch, about diving deep into the uncanny valley. That's not to say they're my favorite, but they don't put me off the same way that flat out UGLY games do. I consider WoW ugly, for example. GW2 was ok, though there was a fair share of stylistic ugliness there as well.

As for Elder Scrolls, my first time playing Oblivion, I thought it was a great gameplay system for an MMO. Not a standard MMO like the one they're planning to make. No, not that at all, but some different MMO, perhaps.

I like the realtime combat that Elder Scrolls is trying to bring. I just hope they do it right also the idea that everyone is on one server also pleases me a lot.
