I haven't had the chance to look into much yet (i've searched a few posts, but didn't find anything).

Have they announced or implemented what a lot of people call "end-game" things to do?

I'm not sure if people have hit max level yet. But is there anything to do once you've gotten there? Or still sort of open-ended and this is just a leveling/crafting game?

Whether it be a dungeon, raid, NMs for better loot, open dungeon etc.

Last time I looked into FFXIV I was ready to buy it until they came out with the surplus exp and no auction house at release, but that's another thing I dont want to get into.

There aren't many people close to cap at the moment. I've seen one person that is Rank 48, but my guess is that it will be at least a couple of months before the general population starts catching up. As far as endgame content goes, I don't think anything has been mentioned yet.

Well the time investment to reach the cap from the time of launch is pretty unreasonable to achieve without some type of exploit/account sharing.

That being said, you can try interacting with people, role play help people out. Try thinking outside the box.

You can do leves (8 of each, 16 total) each 36 hours.
You can get a party for behest every hour (if I'm not mistaken).
You can do storyline quests each 5 ranks.
You can spend time crafting if you prefer it to fighting.
You can spend time gathering resources/fishing if you like.
You can try to amass a huge amount of gil by buying stuff in Market Wards cheap and selling high if you're an economics driven player.
You can explore the game world, although most of if is copy-paste scenery with some nice areas populated with NPCs that serve no purpose.
Or you can do all of the above while waiting for leve reset :)

That's all I could think of, all that I more or less do now.

Don't think there's a 'proper' end-game yet. I think right now end-game revolves around crafting high-rank recipes for gear and farming high-rank mobs for mats required. If there, however, is any epic end-game, I doubt we'll all hear about it till the Linkshell successfully completing it hasn't farmed the crap out of the mobs involved and achieved server domination :P

There are open Dungeons, dangerous but kind of fun to explore. No Boss mobs or anything, just collections of pretty nasty mobs for thier level range.
