I hope there is some sort of tutorial in the beginning of Xiv to get you off on your feet. I remember when I first started Xi 6yrs ago and being lost not knowing what the heck I was doing. I also understand that they added a tutorial to Xi within the past year for new players? I never seen it so don't kno how effective it was/is. Just be nice to know where to go to shop, hunt, or missions. But then again I kinda like looking back to those days and laugh at myself.
So what would you guys want, a tutorial or just run around like chickens with their heads cut off?
I prefer the latter and find things on my own, but I would be happy with just a magical marker NPC.
