I dont get this point of view at all. This is the same as ANY MMO that you can change class in, (Just like FFXI no less?). Yes, if everyone levels everything to the max we'll all be 'wow druids'? But theres really only a select view who manage it in FFXI and I wouldnt expect everyone to be able to max out everything effectively in this either. Massive time investments =/= everyone being the same
Agreed. One of the key benefits to 11 was that you didn't have to creat 1 character per race/job combination to do what you wanted. And even if you can max out everything in XIV (Which I'm sure they'll limit at least on the crafting jobs), that doesn't include obtaining the gear to make worth the while once you've reached the limit.
"Anyone have pld leveled?"
".....Do you have GEAR for it?"
But I assume I'm kind of biased, I never really understood the draw of having all jobs to 75. Spending the gil, the time, the energy, and sacrificing all of those from other potential uses on your favorite jobs all for a hat and being able to bring what you wanted to events if you were lucky.
