Iv never really cared about end game, its always the adventure there that counts, but i think they did a great job on stuff to do at all levels and some good crafted gaer and droped for all the levels it looks like, so im happy!
I second that! I loved XI when I was in high school, and played it religiously (after hw was done). Now I dont have the grind time, and now just hop on do some leves, craft some! Fun time!
