What would you like to see in FFXIV?

1) Just 1 dance emote similar to FFXI

2) A few dance emotes.

3) Full on 100+ dance moves that can be chained together in a long macro.

4) The ability to have crafters create their own choreographed dance sequences, that other players can buy. The player that buys a dance sequence can hit a macro and perform the dance moves from the choreography.

I think the emotes, or lack thereof, should reflect the game they are in. The emotes in WoW are well suited for the game, whether you like them or not, because it's a more humorous game with developers who like to bring wit to the table. SE isn't a very witty company and their games lean more towards the serious so I think a lot of the emotes you see in WoW would be ill suited for FFXIV. I think one or two different dances might work, more if they bring back the dancer job, but otherwise just keep it simple and fairly elegant.

I really liked the way emotes were in FFXI, I just hope they add emotions to emotes that were just worded this time around.

My channel with FFXI battle music and hard to find songs that were not even released on Original Soundtracks.

I also plan on uploading FFXIV music when the game is released.

I would like a few possable dances, prefferably useable by everyone, but leave pop culture out of it please. The trashy popculture danceing in WoW detracted heavily from the game IMO.

It would be realy nice to be able to do the same dance as others or possably even partner up, with concent so you can't mess people up in combat or anything.

I wouldn't say SE lacks wit. Look at some of the quests and dialogue in XI. It's not all dry, drab and serious drama all the time. That said, it's certainly not like WoW.

I don't know if this should be included, but what the ****. I'd like to see some better animations and stances for Elvaan F mostly, along with a few other races. Some of them just looked ridiculous, like they were more concerned about breaking a nail then fighting competently. I liked how the races had different emotes and anims, but sometimes they reeeally went out of their way to make everything so different.

Other than that, no more text-only emotes. Oh, and being able to sit in chairs and such for the **** of it.

Aren't emotes like the easiest thing you can do nowadays?

I hope there's a lot more than in FFXI and I want to be able to see /slap.
