The doors open without having to click on them...
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...
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.
