I was hoping this would be as much fun as other FF games and it could be if they changed some things.
1. My main pain; they turned quest into the dreaded dailies. You get just a few each day and feel you must do as soon as you can or they will be available to you at a later time the next day and you want them to show up as soon as you can. Not 12pm each day because yesterday your child/hubby picked your quest time to want attention. It would not be so bad if each class was given 8 quest but then you would just find your self with more dailies that must be done within a time frame.
2.Time limit; omg that's so bad. 3 Reasons to kick the dog:
a.You die making learning curve mistakes and you run out of time to finish the valuable quest. Thus you waste time reading the web site about EACH quest to make sure you are ready for it. And then once you start the quest the family starts the 'mom' calls.
b.You get kicked off the server and loose the quest.
c.And you best hope the baby does not cry for you will find yourself telling them to hold that Boo Boo tight to stop the bleeding while you finish your quest else you will loose the quest.
3.I can not find enough mobs to grind, One day it was so bad I ran around for 2 hours and killed 7 things getting hardly no experience for they were not in a quest. Grinding can release stress if you can kill several in each area. For with grinding there are no quest to look up and a rest from Googling on how to do things. You can also stop at any point to feed the family needs. I guess they did not want this to be a moms game.
I like to play games to take my mind off stress of the day. This game has added so much stress I find myself running outside to kick the dog to the point the dog refuses to believe me when I call him to eat. He hides thinking 'I will not fall for that one again. Get a new game!!!!'
Well to the dog and families dismay I must use up my first 30 days I spent too much on the collectors addition.
I will then have to go back to a game that:
a. Limits the quest that have time limits.
b. Lets me do all the quest I want to do when I have time to do them as I have different times Each day. At least give us 8 quest per class and craft. But then I can't level my main class and play things I do not care much about thus find myslef going to another game until I can get my quest the next day.
c. Gives me mobs to grind without running around like a chicken with it's head cut off to find EACH one.
d. And does not make crafting such a chore trying to decide how to get the mats to the point I am scare to sell anything in fear I will need it thus I have no money to buy mats or tools or weapons to start a new class and/or craft. I think I went wrong starting Blacksmith first. As I Googled crafts some others look easier to get the mats to do the quest and level them. But my 30 days will be up before I can try them all enough to get the mats.
e. As it is I will not play FFXIV pass my 30 days and play hoping things will get better and I hate to waste all the money I paid for the collectors edition without using the 30 day time limit. I kick myself thinking what I could have done with that money.
