I remember in the early days of 11 I had a paperback copy of A guide for FF11. I Started playing when the guide was still relevant, I think it was before the expansions first came out.
Anyway, I liked having the guide, maybe it was just a nostalgic leftover from the pen and paper gaming days of old. It was tangible and shiny.
Do you think 14 will have a paper guide at launch or shortly thereafter?
