Can you guys who have played the beta help me out with a few questions regarding the game. Since I myself was not able try the beta I have some questions about the game to find out if I will like it or not.
#1: The new level system in final fantasy seems really great. Love the new idea with a fatigue system. But it makes me wonder. I range from 4 to 10 hours to play a day. That will force me to train more or less all classes for something to do. The question is “Say from half a year from now I might have all jobs maxed out, and I’m sure they all need different gear, would that mean I actually need to get stuff for all jobs, meaning endless farm?”
#2: How is the game casual/hardcore wise? I’ve played MMO’s since 1997, starting with Ultima Online. Then EverQuest and later on WoW and so forth. My concern is how hard to is it get a drop if you go to dungeons/instances – Does bosses always drop a piece or two from their loot table, giving you a fair chance to get what you are looking for within a few grinds of the instance?
#3: How is the movement system, combat system – When I see videos of the game it seems like it’s not like any other mmo since EverQuest. They are all the same, a,s,d,w movement with a mouse to control camera, 1,2,3,4,5… to control you abilities/spells. How is it in this game? Am asking because there are quite a few threads about “use of gamepad”
#4: Watching the video that has been made about the fatigue system I learned that the experience gain is devided into groups. 1-8h = max exp 8-15h = dropping exp. But for a level 1 char, what is 8 hours play? Does that give you level 5,10,20..? and what is the max level in the game?
#5: How is loot effecting your class? If a gladiator gets a new sword, does that affect his abilities or are abilities set to do a specific amount of damage so a new weapon really only adds more damage to auto attacks? Do casters get items with + damage or what is the essential in the gear you get?
#6: Are there no PVP?
#7: If you go to dungeons as a group to farm some good items, does it take 1-2 hours to complete a dungeon or 2-x?
#8: Since this is a Asian game I have to ask if the game is more hardcore then the average European/US game, like WoW? I ask because Asian game tends to make everything take a lot longer, like getting loot, getting levels – last example of this kind of game was Aion. A reasonable equation to how long it would take in that game to get a full armor set was between 1-1000 hours. Seeing that a boss didn’t always drop loot, they did 33% of the time. Next to it had to be for your class out of quite a few. Last it had to be the part you needed.
- I think that is all for me for now.. hope you all can give some useful information’s, thanks in advance.
