First off this is a thread that kind of goes against the grain of all the people who like to ***** and moan about a game. Occasionally its nice to see whats good about a game without a bunch of ******** filling up forums with things they are going to complain about. This thread is about what you enjoy about ffxiv and thats it.
A few things that I really enjoy about FFXIV are to be included
1) Craft Classes:
I love the craft classes I think its cool that you can do craft quests and craft whatever class you want and if you have the space, clientelle, and time you can craft everything.
I enjoy that there are different types of minigames for each gathering session. It helps keep botters to a minimum and adds a bit of challenge to the game
Same as gathering I like the little minigames that you do and how you have to control quaity, speed, and efficiency to make better items not just dropping a bunch of crap in a pot and hoping you pass the 30% mark to not break your item or get +1
I like that you can be whatever class you want and change it any time you want and after you get higher in levels you can combine abilities and skill with one another.
5) NO AUCTION HOUSE:
I like this because it encourages player community and forces players to learn where, when, and how to sell items to make a profit at the same time as encouraging some sort of social aspect to the game.
6) The level system:
I like that the experience bar slows down but the class experience stays the same over time. I think it encourages the people who cant play 10 hours a day to have something to look forward to and the players who do like to grind 10 hours a day can still gain class ranks. (Since class ranks are what matter more over player level anyway)
7) The environment:
I like the world you are in. The environment is beautiful and the higher level monsters are really awesome looking. I like that there are little caves with regular monsters and if you wander too far off the beaten path even in low level areas you're going to get your *** kicked.
