In anticipation for starting my new life in Eorzea, I got to thinking about how small the World Map is. During the Beta, it wasn't much of a challenge to get from one starter city, to the next. Aside from the unexplored parts, there really isn't much topography left to see, is there? Eorzea is mainly a singular continent, with a few surrounding Islands. I wonder how long before it becomes a "Small World" once we set out to explore unhindered.
The game takes place in a world called Hydaelyn, so it would be foolish to not expect more later on from expansions or what not. WHAT IF, Eorzea ends up becoming the fabled "Far East" of FFXI's lore? That would partly explain the similar looking races!
Anyone else think our initial game world won't be all that huge? One thing I look forward to is exploration and discovery. I'd hate to run out of Oh's and Ah's too quickly.
