Before I pre-order FFXIV I need to be sure of something. Please keep in mind I'm not insulting anyone or their playstyle.
I've been playing open beta and have interest in this game but I'm running into boredom because it seems like there's not enough content aside from just grinding on mobs that you can barely even find.
Basically I used up all my leves and finished up the starter quest. I was at level 4. I grinded on star marmots to level 5 but it's taking so long because, not only do you get very little xp for these things (I can't find anything else to kill) but they're also hard to find since most spawns are camped by other players.
I ran into some greens that promptly kicked my **** and no one feels like grouping.
So I'm wondering, is this it? Is this what I have to look forward to? ...because if it's grinding from level 5 - 10 this early I can only imagine how much more there will be later on. If there were more leves or quests it would be a great game but it seems there is only one main quest and a few leves every ten levels and if that's it, I need to know so I don't waste my money on the game.
Again, if you enjoy grindy games with few quests that's awesome! I'm not trying to insult your personal taste. It is simply not my taste and if anyone can help me out who knows more about the game please do. I just want to know if there is more level 1 - 10 content or if the handful of leves and 1 starter quest chain is the only content besides grinding on random mobs.
Thanks ahead of time for helping me to determine my purchase!
