That really depends entirely on how much money and time you have to burn. I don't have either at the moment, so it's best that I just be patient and wait for XIV. But if you've got both to spare, I could see a short romp through XI being pretty fun.

If you start 11 it would take some hardcore **** time to really get into and progress far before 14 comes out. If you've never played 11 it might be interesting to play for a bit just to get a feel for the world, but I wouldn't expect to be a 75all endgame monster by then. Personally I'd say just read all the quest spoilers and plotline stuff you can find from 11 and wait for 14. I'm not sure if you've played other MMO's or not, but they say your first MMO is often your favorite so I'd wait for 14 and dive in full on.

absolutely no point in playing FFXI now. amazing game but it will just be impossible for you to finish a lot of the stuff that newbies have to go through such as the expansion missions, etc. and levelling all your jobs - it could be a fun experience if you're a fan of the series to try out some of the jobs but IMO early game in FFXI doesn't have the magic it used to, so you'd be doing a lot of work to get to endgame just so FFXIV will come out the day after you hit that point

Yea I would def wait for FFXIV unless you have friends who play. Play FFXIII or do what I'm doing. I just started playing Final Fantasy again. I'm gonna burn thru the series before FFXIV come out.

Then I definitely suggest waiting for 14. From the things I've read here and experienced in game, players who migrate from WoW to 11 have a hard time acclimating to the much slower pace of 11. In 11 it can take a day to finish a quest or two instead of 20 quests in a day. Whether this is good or not is entirely up to the individual but angry mouth foaming rants about how slow 11 is aren't uncommon from experienced wow players, lol. I'd recommend waiting for 14 to avoid getting turned off by the franchise all together. 11 was a great game, but it's a vastly different experience from what you'll be used to. 14 sounds like it's gonna be closer to the kind of game you're used to, and less likely to annoy you into hating all things FF, lol.

XIV is gonna be Epic!(I hope)
