well i was a wow junkie in the past but now it became quite easy and boring...so i want to know if it is worth starting now ffxi or will it be abandoned after ffxiv is released so my hours will be for nothing?
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)
