I'm sure most of us played FFXI, and since you are in this forum you are likely to be interested in playing in FFXIV. Something that always bothered me about the game, which I have played for seven years now, is that you could not jump at all outside of DRG's ability.
It just feels so odd that your feet are glued to the ground. I also remember being frustrated in promyvion mea when we were stopped by a shin high fence that forced us to go through a small path through enemies. The least they could do is make the fence higher.
As of now SE does not plan on implementing jumping into the game unless it is for certain instances. However, if a group of people of a decent size who have the initiative to act tell them that we want something it would be just bad business to ignore that group. I have seen them implement things before because of player demand such as a Nomad Moogle in Selbina.
So the point of this is I want to turn this thread into a petition for SE to making jumping, and while we are at it, swimming part of FFXIV. If you agree, post and we will start a list.
Sorry if this sounds too formal, it just seems to be the right tone for starting a petition. If someone else has examples of times that not being able to jump or swim frustrated them, feel free to post about that as well.
