Default FFXIV: ARR

Anybody?

I just pre-ordered and got my closed beta key invite. I'm stoked about it, mostly because a lot of my old gaming buddies are getting back into it as well.

For a noob like me, what separates this from other MMO rpgs? A breif list of MMOs I've played:

WOW for like 3 years. Never again.
Rift for like 6 months. Was fun.
GW2 for a few months. Was okay.
TERA for a few days. Meh.

I feel like this would bore me unless it has something new and innovative.

I just read the wiki, and here's the math that I've come up with:

FFXIV: ARR is what you get when you take the "Blizzard" out of "WOW".

That's pretty legit quote there.

The class system is cool, you won't be stuck to one class the entire time. For one, you'll want to use some skills from other classes on your "main". Two, you need to level up multiple classes to get to sub-classes such as bard, paladin, dragoon, etc. There are a lot of other reasons, some that will probably come into play during end-game content.

The crafting and gathering systems are really cool and almost refreshing vs other games. You level up the character as the certain profession, obtain different gear to wear to help improve whichever job it is.

Lastly, they can always pull the nostalgic card with the FF series.


I meant to post up my twitch on here and you guys could of watched my stream on closed beta. Ah well, open beta will be in like 2 weeks.

After phase 4(open beta) my old gamer buddies and I will be moving to the legacy server, hyperion.
