Epedemic, I think your ideas are great. SE needs creative people like you to help them make FFXIV stand out from the crowd.
I also thought about actually having a real house instead of just a 'room'. But i just couldn't figure out what you would 'do' in that house... In FFXI I only went in my mog house to go afk, change jobs, switch out items, and go lfg.
Thanks a lot. ;D
I wish SE would hire me, it'd be a dream come true for me. Yeah having your own house that you can go into and have fun in, perhaps play some mini games in there and have some sort of sparring area where you can summon a few friends and maybe a mob to practice on.
Things that show our characters aren't perfect: randomly tripping while running, Battle animation changes when in red hp (character also slows down >;) ), Sometimes failing casting magic(we melee characters miss, so how come mages can't fail to cast magic sometimes?)
That'd be great, but only only on a cosmetic level. Maybe if you're low on hp your character stumbles every now and then or they clench their stomach or something like that.
That's a good idea to add to that. I probably should have added that "randomly tripping while running wouldn't slow your character down, just a certain animation plays that looks like you are tripping" although if you're low on hp, it could slow your character down. ;)
Personally though, I'm looking to see weather/seasons. I want the season's to affect our characters as well. We shouldn't run as fast when in the snow (maybe 90% run speed when in snow). Maybe in the summer, our characters can get extra aggressive(attack faster, stronger) at random times. (Summer is known for being the killing season since it's so hot it makes people go crazy or be more aggressive.)
