I’m really having a lot of fun in FF14. I’ve gotten far enough to unlock mounts so now I’m going back to focus on gathering and crafting.
Bad writing ahoy!
Well, I took the plunge the other week and picked up Final Fantasy 14. So far, I’ve had a fairly good time in it. I just today was able to actually start doing the MMO-bits like the duty finder and leves. Before that, I was just fooling around cutting down trees and making lumber.
I must say that I think I prefer the gathering and crafting jobs more than the fighting ones. Only problem is I don’t know how far just crafting will get me. Story quests have been a lot of fighting so I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to level at least one of my fighting jobs to go through them.
I used to play FFXI not long after it came out. I started as a white mage and used a character similar to this guy. One of the people I ended up teaming up with often was a human female character (player was a guy though). She would go hit things and I’d dish out the healing. Whenever I targeted her to cast a healing spell my character would turn his head towards her and the silly way this looked on the screen made me feel like these elf guys had incredibly long necks.
Things like Final Fantasy 14’s benchmark / character creator get me interested in a game. But do I want to take that plunge? I felt like I got burned with the last MMO, if you can call it that, I played so I am reluctant to try something new.
