The game , Final Fantasy 14 (OBT) , Is ECONOMICALLY BASED, meaning it is used like the real world. We all rely on each other to work together in harmony to make , buy , and kill things. This way i think is unique and useful, simply because it is not noob friendly. "I get phone calls all the time saying, " This game sucks, it doesn't explain everything", Not to play the card but its a beta. Learn to do it yourself and not always being guided by baby games. If you get to understand what to do you wont level up so late. <-- lvl 20 , 18 rank glad.
The system works like this
DoW/DoM = Well , its obvious to see that they have to party together , get item drops and sell to either DoH or DoL.
DoL/DoH = These classes provide the armor, food, and lets say (Shelter) of the DoW,DoM.
Its a continuous circle,square? LINE? xD
DoW/DoM > DoL/DoH > etc..
The system is designed to be economically social. Get out there and make yourself a linkshell invite some people and work together.
Result if the game is social: Economic Sucess
But like the beta is now, where everyone is still learning its in a Progression = which makes the game seem bad to non-noob friendly people
If there is anymore explaining on this new system, please ask. We don't want any poor souls do we?
Edit: I'm not someone who usually explains the system. (Im the one that beats everyone to it.)
Anyway, simple and sweet.
We take it into RL terms.
Lets say you go to the grocery store?
You buy food or materials (i.e. DoH,DoL)
You have a JOB (ie. DoW,DoM)
And you well, don't sell but make money ermm. This isn't working as planned xD.
The system is made for you to buy and the merchants to sell. (Get that?)
Also what isn't clear about help?
