I hit it pretty hard the first week, but I expect to cool off a lot from now on. It's been a lot of fun, but I'm in no major rush to quickly get to the cap.

I'm excited about doing more missions, though.

I never tried the beta but I did a good 2 years of hardcore non-stop playing with FFXI and let me tell ya, FFXIV is nothing like it... I'm running around trying to get use to the feel, watching what other people are doing, researching a good leveling/griding spot, researching recipe for my crafting ranks, etc. I'm also the type of person who would not go rank up (I would say level.. but it's rank now) without a proper gear. So basically I would take my time to craft / make money to get that weapons and armor, then actually head out. I'm sure some of you here are like me too. :)

Armor King

That's me. I get side tracked alot. Doze off alot. Like to try new things, alot. Well, that's how things were in the beginning...

Now that we have a shared crafting dynamic in our shell, things are coming into focus. Having each member focus on a craft is better than a bunch of jack-of-all trade types. We're on the brink of making lv 20-30 armors and finally, FINALLY, new weapons.

That's my biggest gripe atm: needing lvl 25 drops/mats/synths for lvl 8 weapons. HUH?

I just got the game yesterday. I have never played anything even remotely related to Final Fantasy before so I am pretty much compltely lost. Is this post implying that you need to maintain some minimum levels or something? I am enjoying the game but I don't really have all day every day to play so if it is a game where I am gonna need to play tons in order to maintain some kind of minimum rank or something than I suppose I should uninstall. So I'm pretty confused. My character is only Conjerer 4 botanist 3. Have I lost this game already lol?

You're totally fine. There's no required amount of playing each week in order to have fun. I think some people are just a bit worried about not being the highest rank on the server. But that doesn't really mean much of anything at this point.

Play the game, enjoy the game, don't sweat trying to level up fast if you're not interested in doing such. You still have months before the PS3 players show up, anyway. hehe.

Honestly there's a little bit of a rush for me to level right now, but only to progress past the very beginning of the game. Only reason being is the floodgates are about to open, and I don't want to be one of the 500 people running around looking for mobs. Also I'm slightly impatient to get out of the full-noob gear I'm wearing, so I'm working on getting decently geared.

Other than that I don't have the time to worry about being that fast.

I dont feel rushed at all. I have 5 jobs to level 10 and a series of others to 7 or 8. My highest is level 16 conjurer.

Over the next few weeks the time I have available to play will drop off and everyone will rush ahead of me but they will all also have lower level jobs. I am not in a rush to reach the cap, the fun is in the journey. So if yuo stay low level, you will always have casual players to play the game with.

Join a LS of similar players to yourself, or form a linkshell for similar players - then you will get a lot more enjoyment than if you rush to keep up with the masses.
