In FFXI, titles are mostly for cosmetic reasons (is there any other titles being used than for sky warp?) and need to talk/pay certain NPCs to change title. In some other MMORPGs, titles actually give stats and players are freely able to change their title accordingly.
Do you guys prefer titles to be mostly cosmetic or giving stats if such thing is in FFXIV?
I'm a bit torn with this issue because I like both sides. In FFXI, because it's mostly cosmetic, they can add amusing titles and so many different titles without having to consider game mechanic. However, I like the idea of stat boosting titles too as that can make character customization a bit deeper and titles having more worth to pursue.
