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!
For me XI got boring once I got to end game... I loved the journey to getting there. Though I sense XIV will have a completely different style of endgame.
Anemone Knight = Paladin? Interesting article. I wonder if endgame will really be all that expansive and multi tiered in gear. I think the thing FF11 did the best was keeping you working towards new unofficial tiers.
Haha yeah they did that VERY well... heck, half of the stuff you REALLLLY wanted was obtainable by level 35, just incredibly hard to get (peacock charm, leaping boots both come to mind.)
That's the one thing I KNOW XIV will never do well, and I will truly always miss that... as I do believe no game will ever have material like that again. Our society revolves around fairness and equality, and people can no longer accept not having something that someone else can get.
None the less, XIV is clearly going to do about 1,000 things XI didn't... so in the end I think I'm going to love XIV just as much as XI.
How many of you on here are having that "first MMO" feeling we've all been told we can never get back again? I sure as heck know I am... and that's a good... no... a GREAT thing
