I spent the last nearly 6 hours exploring stuff with a friend, explaining a bit of stuff to her and just having a fun time. We ran a couple leves, checked out some of the cities, and she did a naked (As naked as you can get wearing only underwear.) Miqo'te dance for me and earned me Rank 9 in Alchemy.
After she logged I helped two people who were having trouble finishing a leve then teamed up for a few quick leves with them. All-in-all it was a pretty good day. So despite the rants, the game does have its fun side and I still don't regret buying it either way. 11 Conjurer, 17 Physical. I'm happy.
EDIT: Also some weird but funny glitches such as the ferry in Limsa Lominsa glitched and it literally docked INTO the dock itself. Funny watching as people walk off the pier and then camera switches with them standing in air before it finally shows the ferry leaving. Another had my friend and I sitting in the same chair as for some reason we couldn't really see each other right away.
