Please remember it's a beta. Mechanics aren't set, some haven't been set at all since beta started. If you are seriously so dismayed at how the game feels based on the beta then please just leave FFXIV alone. Those of us who understand it's a beta are getting tired of all the negativity. This is in no way intended as a "Go away, new people", as you can see my number of posts aren't all that high either, and I'm sure there are plenty of new people who know that this is just a beta and are still positively looking forward to the game.
If you are waiting on the magic launch day patch to completely remake the UI and the way it functions I wouldnt hold my breath. SE has internal testers ofcourse but the internal testers have been proven to be less than perfect on several occasions.
Here is a quote from the EU beta forums reguarding the level 10 fishing leve quest.
The balance time-requeriments on fisher fieldleves is a masive fail. Fishing camp bear rock or Fishing skull valley leves are 30min (like every leve) but They ask you to check 3 spot where to fish if they are profitable. Ok np.
The problems start where you need to succesfully fish 6 times on each spot. Each time you fish, even without performing the comand wait, takes a whole 1:10min to try to find the fish in the inteface of fishing. If you add that the posibilities of find it are 1/5 increasing each time you try to find it; you finishing wasting, because there is no other word, wasting 16min on a spot.
What that means? you need to succesfully check 3 spot, if only one takes 16min to check one, how is the player supossed to achieve the requeriments?
In addittion the aerethyte are always far from the spots where to fish, even using the ability Dowse for obtain the "Quick" effect, takes 2 to 5 min to arribe to the markers.
In conclusion, should seriously recheck the balance of this type of leves since WASTE 20min for only arribe plus finish in 1/3 spot is not fun but annoying, frustating and once again, a waste of time"
Another beta tester wrote
" 100% agree with this post. Fishing leves are screwed right now. How did internal testers not catch this crap?"
It takes me and apparently other beta testers ONE time trying the guild leve(fishing leve at skull rock where you test the three locations out) to realize that the time alotted isnt enough to complete it because its not even close. ONE TIME. So either the internal testers never tried the guild leves before they released them or they are complete retards. Ill let you pick. Either option is bad."
There are many many many more post just like this about serveral different issues so if you have total faith in internal testers to get everything right for that magical launch day patch you might be out of luck.
