Do you like FFXIV main story line?
Yes :8 (66.7%)
No :4 (33.3%)
Didn't even went pass first mission :0 (%)
Total:12


All the negative comments seem to head toward the UI, mechanical functions and various bugs. Does anyone ever look at the content (story) before they speak? The main objective of FFXIV or any FF is the story behind the game. However, did you even look into the story before thinking about those bugs?

Do you even detest the story line that was in FFXIV just like FFXI unlike all the MMORPG on the market that actually pursue an interactive and engaging story line?

Let's see what people thinks, i am pretty sure it is pretty early on, i have played the level 1 story mission line of each city. I personally love how the story develop, i am going to tackle the second part today or this week @ level 10+ and next part next week.

P.S poll doesn't work for me....can't delete thread...oh well someone make one for me?

I finished the first Storyline quest that did not seem to add much to me. It just ended without much info or even satisfaction. I have gone through and talked to each NPC that I have come across and they add nothing more and are not even helpful in accomplishing much of anything else.

I like the reward!! The story line doesn't really make me feel anything so far, a little sad at the scene that the girl's dad passed away, dat's all. Gotta see whats going on later :) (Ul'dah)

Everything up to mission 5 is tutorial mixed with the beginning of a story.

I finish the first and second mission of Limsa but it was pretty boring to me. Nothing too interesting but hopefully the story will start to pick up.

I really hate translating bad English into readable English.

From what I saw the characters in Gridania were interesting. There isn't really any conflict though, which makes getting anywhere in the story a bit more difficult. At least the story of FFXI centers around the war against the beastmen and the crystal war from the past, it gives the player some direction, a sense of focus of where to go. FFXIV centers around... doing random guildleves.

Unfortunately, the game's implementation is so problematic that it stops me from wanting to play.

No one has been able to tell me, but can you do another nations quest line? If so, how?

I would assume you would have to complete your first nation's story first.



I do enjoy the storyline, but it seems detached from the rest of the game.

The main storyline has not appealed to me at all so far. It is just a lot of dialogue and no action.

I thought a similar thing too when I played the story line missions in beta, but then I realized that they give the same quest to any class rank 10, 20, etc. Which means, if someone played just a crafting class, doing the story line mission would be nearly impossible for him/her. On the flip side, you'd expect people to play as several classes, including DoWs, but it may not always be the case or be very difficult at higher ranks.

I'm enjoying the story so far, in Ul'Dah. Seems pretty Final Fantasy-esque, so I'm interested to see where it's going.

Would anyone be willing to (with spoiler markers) to go a little more in detail about the story please? I am going to be picking XIV up when it's out for PS3 but I can't stand waiting however long that is to get a taste of the story.

Is it still too early in the game to really get a grasp of what will be uniting XIV?

I just finished Legends Adrift from the Limsa. The intrigue is interesting, by the time I finished I really felt like someone is seriously out to get my character. I can't wait till I hit lvl 15 so I can start the next one and see more of where this is leading.

At least in Ul'dah, the storyline is paced badly. You start involved with a cutscene and a fight, but then the next few just involve you running around and listening to people talk. It's not even like you're a part of the story, just some random guy who fate keeps making eavesdrop on conspiratorial conversations. After the quest is over, you go back to grinding the same handful of leves for a few days -- with the hope that something interesting will happen next time -- but it never seems to. The storyline and the gameplay seem like they were designed with little forethought as to how they would function together in the game.

So far I'm liking the story in Gridania. I just completed the second quest.

The only thing that struck me as odd (and this will be a wildly unpopular view I'm sure) is why the heck did I get 15k gil for completing it? I didn't *do* anything for anyone, certainly not the npc I was standing in front of when I got it.

Quick question about the main story lines. I finished the level 10 story in Ul'dah (Golden Sacrifices I believe it was) and am wanting to continue with it. Right now I am physical level 18 and have leatherworker rank 13 and pugilist rank 11. Now, I have been told that the story lines unlock with your physical level and not your rank. However, it seems that even with physical 18 I cannot get the next step. Upon talking with Momodi, she only gives me the two options of "Small talk" and "Getting started". I have tried speaking with her as both my leatherworker and my pugilist to no avail. So I'm wondering, is the information I have been told about physical level incorrect? Do I need to get one of my classes to rank 15 first?

More on topic: So far I am enjoying the Ul'dah story line. It seems to be a bit of murder/mystery/intrigue and I do enjoy that sort of thing. I would love to see more of it, once I can get it to work however.

I'm liking Gridaniaj's so far. It better to at least make it to rank 10 or 15 first though. Helps with the flow of events.

I find the cut scenes visually compelling but too drawn out and dramatic. I think the plot is too slow and wordy, it doesn't grab me. The intro movie is much better at keeping my attention.

Uldah quest line seems somewhat interesting. I like it, really I do, but man does it feel isolated from world you're in. It's like there's a subspace or a dimension solely for the story line and nobody outside the dimension has any clue it exists. It's not even story though, it's the barren world SE has created. Everything in this game, including the cities, feel unpopulated.

I really like it, especially compared to the nation missions of FFXI. The shiny graphics and voice acting are great! Compared to CoP on the other hand.... well that is a tough call!

ITT: People judge a storyline based on 2 quests.

There's already a "BCNM" in the third or fourth mission iirc. What you do differs if you're on a DoW/M or a DoL/H.
