Is actually pretty nice now that they got the servers figger'd out.

I think the only thing I miss about WoW at this point is flying mounts, Stealth, and Cheap Shot.

What servar is everyone on? Toon names?

Hexxor Agria - Sargentas

Everyone is on Ultros.

Check the general games FFXV thread for everyone in the TINFS linkshell (anyone can invite you). The General forum has their own guild... but you might want to avoid that.

There's a thread in =22 about FFXV that quickly turned into an FFXIV thread. In it, we discussed servers, and Ultros is the non-Legacy server that a XIV General was going to, and a bunch of other people from ZAM.

My free time ran out and I don't know that I'm going to sub right now. I've got GTA5 and Halo 4 taking up time, and Beyond: Two Souls and Pokemon come out super soon. I imagine I'll be back in a month or so. I might level up a DPS class, and look to get into a raiding FC. I love tanking, but with the hours I've been working, I'd prefer the less-intense position of DPS. While you do have to pay attention and work hard on a DPS, it's a different kind of stress than how I feel when tanking.

Ultros a packed server?
Titan is a JP server, and I'm cool with it, but it seems peeps in FC are having a hard time for "end game" events due to their not being enough at 50 in the FC and communication issues (and time difference).
If servers are not like they use to be at launch on the NA/EU servers, might be a good idea to transfer during the free period...just don't want to land on a packed realm and not be able to log in :3

While being possibly addictive, I haven't gotten involved in any time sinks (not saying they are not prevalent). This game is definitely more solo-friendly. In any case, I know how people are, they are all there to help when everyone needs it, but later, you're off fending for yourself. So, my plan is to do stuff now, then slow down and play other games later.

Managed to install it, but so far it hasn't won me over. Spent the first 10 minutes just reading text and watching cutscenes without voice sounds. Pretty boring. Spent the next 20 minutes doing absolutely no killing of anything at all. Also fairly boring.

Way too much text accompanying each quest. Wanna kill squirrels/pick roses for moneys? Okay, but first you have to click through these ten frames of text about what's going on right now. Ugh. Is this an Asian thing or just a Final Fantasy thing? I don't mind there being text, but having to click through every **** frame gets old real fast.

No, as far as I can tell, you just clickity-click to progress the story, but only after a certain amount of time has elapsed (can't spam-click through it). Takes forever to pick up any random quest in the game.

You can blame all of Canada for something happening in Montreal the same we can blame all of America for something happening in Dallas or Austin.

Odd, I always spam through the quest text. The only ones you can't are the cutscenes where there is animation that sometimes need to finish.

Anything that's not a main story/class quest of some sort can be spammed right through. It's only CS text that can't be spammed.

There is a lot of main story/class content though but I wouldn't call that a negative..

Can you make a character, save the appearance, and then just load that up in character creation in the morning or something, before you go in to work?

You can, actually. It's an idea.

The problem with spamming through the quest text is that you often miss vital clues, like "This monster is really hard. Take this acid to weaken it." If you use the item on the monster the task becomes face roll easy. If you missed the bit about using the item and just start trying to kill it, you're going to have a bad time.

The NPCs in cutscene fights are also always shouting out helpful instructions. "Focus on that guy! I have this one!" "Stand your ground and don't give an inch!" (e.g. don't move) versus "Watch out for his lava pit!" In the GLD class quests there was a big one - "Make sure you're drawing attention away from your healer!" The solo quests double as tutorials for how to play the game.

Ignore the dialog, and you'll miss out on some pretty important aspects of game play.

When I was last on, I mostly saw Paladins. Whm was second.

And it's because the queues are SO much shorter for tanks. I was seeing 16+ minute queues on my Whm, so I can't imagine what it was like for DPS. Waits that long were relatively rare for my DPS when I played WoW, so it was weird. Especially since healers get instant queues until level 30, when suddenly there are a whole lot more healers (due to Scholar) and their times plummet.
