I liked FFXI a lot, but there were soooo many things that drove me insane when playing.
Here are just a few that I hope get changed in FFXIV:
A way to make quest givers stand out.
A strategy guide was pretty much necessary if you never played the game before.. that or talking to every person in town, hoping you'd run into a quest your level.
I don't think anyone can argue that the PC controls on FFXI were probably the most awkward and unnecessarily difficult to use controls ever to be used in an MMO.
Having to make a macro for every spell you wanted Hotkeyed was just pointless..
Faster modes of transportation.
In FFXI it took forever to get anywhere unless you had a White Mage handy, and even then they could really only send you to an area somewhat close to your destination.
I don't claim to know much of anything about how servers work, but if there is a way to keep all countries playing together AND have a few servers here I definitely wouldn't cry about it. 200-300 ping isn't terrible, but I'd really like to see better.
Better character customization.
I can't be the only one tired of seeing the same 3 or 4 preset faces walking around everywhere.
All that aside (and because I'm bored and wanna write more), here are also some things I'd like to see them keep:
Would be cool to see them improve on these.. I love'd to decorate mine and would like to be able to invite others in.
International integrated servers.
I enjoyed meeting people from other parts of the world, and made a lot of friends from different countries.
Something else I'd like to see stay and be improved upon.. there is nothing more cute than a baby chocobo.
I may add more things as they come to mind, but thats about it for now.
Thanks for reading and feel free to post what you hope is changed or kept! :th_070_goodjob:
