Whoa there, sparky. Now who's getting all ***** for no reason?
If you take this:
In this case, Warp scrolls/cudgels were already in XI, and frankly, it was done pretty well. For a very small CP cost, you could warp.
Cudgels were excellent for crafters. Black Mages could warp themselves and Warp others.
You can get so much interesting uses and methods out of the game instead of just giving the ability away to everyone for free, which is pretty much an unimaginative lazy way out, in a design context.
Because the forum has been invaded by WoW fanboys that cringe and bite at the slightest criticism toward the game, and basically only offer the advice that XIV should be more like WoW. (it's the only way it will be successful!)
you're having a reasonable discussion. Throw in the reference to WoW and you're just being a fanboi dork. If you read through every thread here, you'll find that the majority of contention about WoW isn't coming from people who have played WoW discussing concepts that they like from that game, it's coming from FFXI morons condemning the ideas strictly because they've been implemented in WoW. If you're going to dislike an idea, dislike an idea on its own merits and discuss it as such. The instant a person's last remaining argument is reduced to, "It's too much like WoW!", they've lost the debate.
