miss, miss, miss, evade, miss, HIT, miss, miss, HIT.
Ok, I'm trying really hard to get into this game, but the more i go along the more it annoys me.
The simple battle system, you can bearly hit mobs any more.
As soon as you weapon hits roughly 60-70% condition, that's it, ur mob now takes you 2x longer to kill and 2x longer after battle (for HP regen)
Now this would be ok if you could port back to your hometown, or city what ever and quickly repair, but you dont cause you have no anima. Or you can simply run ALL the way back, which takes you 13 mns there and 13 mns back (buying/repairing time) included. Let's not talk about the 1 anima per 8 hrs regen.
Hey i got an idea, we can repair our own weapons! Actually, no you can't as its impossible or takes 1-2 hours to find one material necessary, because of the frustrating UI system.
I understand the hole time sink of it...But you cant achieve half a rank (from rank 12 onwards) without having to head back to a city to repair your weapon.
Once again im trying to get into the game, but no matter what i do for XP, the lack of some sort of buying/selling server shop is strongly lacking for many reasons. The fact you cant port makes it worse.
Time sinks, im all FOR, but some areas are simply too strong.
This all leads to the difficulty to gain experience. The lack of quests...OR simply none. OH yeah the levequests...Half a douzen every 36 hrs which is done in 1 hour.
**** let's do crafting then. Windhsards, you need them for armorsmithing. Compared to the rest of shards ive seen people seeking to buy them for 300/piece! When all the other shards in the area are 80-120!
Ok well let's do some armorsmithing levequests..Oh wait you can't in this city, he doesnt give them out.
From the start of my post I have just spent maybe 2-3 hours to find out, grinding is extremly difficult. Crafting is also. Buying is even worse. Travelling is horrible. And the battle system is killing me.
I've read a fair bunch of posts about the moaning, and that other MMO's where way worse than this at launch. But did they pay this much for so much "emergency maintenance"? On top of what every is agreeing on what to disagree on?
I'm sure alot of these matters will be sorted. But by then, alot of gamers will be gone, thus killing the economy of the game, less budgets = less work = death of the game (long term).
I feel SE have gone heavily wrong with alot of things, and i may be wrong and would like to know if anyone can convince me, with there true love for FF14, reasons to stay.
