So I used to play FFXI, started in the initial beta and played a few years after its release. Then I came back a year or two later and found my characters still around. started crafting and leveling new jobs and quit again few months later.
I really enjoyed the game, but once I got my black mage to 75 and got all the top gear for it, didn't know what to do as I wasn't in mood for the XP grind I went through on my mage.
I actually found a new copy of FFXIV on ebay for $25 and bought it today, but all I read is bad reviews of the game. You guys have played it is it really bad in comparison with FFXI. I read that it has no direction etc.. but FFXI didn't either, every quest mission I did it seemed I had to look up online to find out who to talk to etc....
Please let me know if I should open it or re-sell it on ebay.
