Can read LS chat in up to 8 linkshells at once.

Linkpearls no longer take up an inventory slot.

Crystals stack higher than 12.

Armor is not limited to a specific class. Preferred by certain classes, but not limited to them.

Can change job anywhere so long as you have the weapon.

Mining/Harvesting points are visible glows instead of invisible spots that you have to tab and hope for.

Better graphics is the obvious one.

Limited ability to teleport yourself around.

I wonder how the class changing system will work when they put in a pvp element to the game.

Story missions beckon you - NPC pearls so without having to read on the internet, you actually can progress through the story.

actually able to do stuff/missions without 5 other appropriate people, and 4 hours of prep/mission.

Lots of items stack to 99, and autosort into stacks.

Crystals dont even take up an inventory spot

The title has an additional 'V' at the end of it.

That's all I could come up with :(

Alt-Tab logs me off pretty quickly.

After I got XIV, I didn't play XI much at all. So when I decided to do some FoV and crafting a couple weeks ago, this was a surprisingly huge thing for me. I just kept running at the **** door wondering why in the **** it wasn't opening. I had completely forgotten they needed an action to open...

No Playonline
Very little Zoning
HELM(Well BMF or something, no acronym looks as good here) is very important.
OK sized inventory from the start
No need for Mules(Kinda). Though some people do just fine without them anyways.
Race is even less of an issue, and is more for visuals then anything.
No Tails on galka(Why did they have them to begin with.)
Lalafell have functional knee caps. Tarutaru just had a little flap in their legs.

I don't lose experience when I die.

The complexity of the character creation means I have a more unique character.

Linkshells get a crest to design, instead of choosing just a color of pearl.

Aggro isn't so scary -- nothing like just trying to run to the dunes for a level 15-ish party and wondering where in the world that ram came from that just stomped on you.

Running between starter cities doesn't take too long, and, along with the last item I listed, is possible at any level.

I was given a mule to start with that I can access without logging out.

Sometimes. Other times they don't open until you log off/log back on. Fail.

But this is an optimistic thread so.... Here's my contribution.

You can be teleported to places you've never visited before.

Actually that's not quite correct. A linkshell mate tried to port me to a camp I haven't been before. He ported, I stayed. You have to touch the telecrys.. I mean the aetheryte in person to add it to your destination list. Quite reasonable I think.

They've changed that? I got to Limsa Lominsa by a friend's teleport having never been there before.

I've been teleported to Ul'dah and never been there yet; if you can't do it anymore, it must have been changed.
