For the Beta, yes, there's a certain cap. No word on retail release though.

They said they were planning on setting it at 50 for the retail.
We really want to compete against World of Warcraft and for example the new Star Wars MMO.

So how high is 50 compared to 30? Is 50 the new 75 where it'll take a LOOOOONG time to get there?

I'm sure it will take a while to level something to 50, although probably not as long as leveling to 75 in FFXI.

Adding to the leveling will be the fact that you'll want to have certain abilities/spells from other classes to use on your main. For example, if you want to use a level 30 Thaumaturge spell on your Conjurer, you need to have both leveled to 30.

I think FFXI's initial level cap was 50 and that has since been streamlined to fold into the overall 1-75 curve, so it used to take longer. I'm sure it will be the case in FFXIV that the 1-50 curve is not taking future level caps into account since it has to last a while so content isn't gobbled up too quickly.

Can they increase the level cap so that it goes to 11?

Mikhalia: and FWIW, my posts are 95% helpful, informative, or funny.
Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

I think it should not take as long as it did in XI, considering the game is meant to be played a bit more casually. more or less.
