This is a no deal Howie for me. One of the things I love about RPGs is being excited to wear new gear and weapons. I'm a level 16 MRD, and I've been looking for a new axe for a couple of days now. I shout in Limsa, I search avidly in retainers but I've had no luck. I can't wait to ding to get another skill that looks exactly the same as others. This is just getting so frustrating, I feel like im making no progress.

You need to give it time. You might be surprised at how much goes into making the weapons and other gear you're so eager to get your hands on.

The box should read, "FINAL FANTASY XIV online (just give it some time)" maybe people would be a little more understanding of a such a crippled release then.

...New gear every level, constant influx of said gear, tons of ways to get it, driving force behind playing the game? Sounds like a game we all love to hate to me. (Hint, its not this one, nor is it FFXI)

it took my some serious work to get a dodoskin set. and I find it relaxing that they have relaxed on the level requirements for wearing stuff.. nothing worse than having to grind another 20,000 exp just to equip those stupid shoes you just bought.

The problem is that it's all really congested right now. EVERYONE wants new gear.

Everything is selling really quickly. I've made 50,000 gil in 24 hours, just by selling crystals.

But after checking a ton of retainers... I haven't seen much in the way of gear. Crafting seems to be expensive and time consuming.

They DO need to add more items to NPC's, though. I agree, there really isn't enough stuff available right now.

I kinda like the way gear works in 'that game' despite its other flaws. You're actually rewarded for collecting the full set rather than just going through the motions so you can store it later on. I only play this game occasionally at a friends pad since I'm postponing buying until it's a lot more stable, but I'll be damned if you see me walking around town looking like a colorblind rodeo clown because of situational gear sets.

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
