I may just be jumping the gun because I haven't seen all the way to 50 but, the WS's lack the cool effects that FFXI had. When I busted out a Rampage or Raging Rush in FFXI, the effects made it seem so cool. In the beta it seems all that happens is character will swing harder with no cool effects or colors.

You're comparing WSs below rank 10 in XIV to level 40+ versions in XI?

A more fair comparison would be those bland two-hit WSs XI gives below level 10. Give it time.

The first two weapon skills that you get are a little dull, but hey, nothings perfect.

I imagine there will be more fire works and pyrotechnics around level 40. Yup, I'm betting that weapon skills will look like a WWE wrestler entrance in no time.

I think the "cooler" looking WS will be something you'll get a higher ranks - part of the overall motivation to rank up.

I remember how much my grinding-time spiked up as my DRK in FFXI got closer to obtaining Guillotine and how fun/satisfying it was when I finally obtained it and was able to use it for the very first time~

I've seen a number of abilities in XIV but I've yet to see a WS.

That THAT, all you "it's not a toon" and "it's a DD, not a dps" fanatics!

Seriously, though...we've got 5gb beta clients for a game that's supposed to require 15-20+gb for the retail version. I'm not too worried about things like animations at this point.

Yeah most of the moves I saw werent weaponskills. They were abilities. As far as I knew weaponskills were class specific. But most of the TP moves I had so far were useable on other classes.

But like other posters have said, you cannot compare Puncture with Sidewinder. Or Trunksplitter with Rampage...That's like comparing Tachi: Enpi with Tachi: Gekko or Kasha lmao.

For the most part mmo's starting skills are nothing fancy or spectacular. Aion is one of the only mmo's I've played where some of the starting skills looks amazing. But at the same time, the endgame skills look all that much better still.
