I am so tired of all the complaints about a game that seems different from the norm. Why do people insist on playing the same games over and over just with different titles.
Maybe I am a bit different than most MMO players but I do like to do things slowly so I can actually experience each level and explore each area I encounter. FYI I also love the solo aspect. BeastMaster being my job of choice in FFXI.
Below is a list of things I like about this game:
Able to change jobs without having to go to a city.
Experimenting with different actions from different jobs. ie: love protect on my pug and archer.
The ability to journey solo fairly easily.
The animations for the Fishing etc.
All crafts and how they are intertwined.
The fact that it is not all about the fighting and dying
No exp loss!
I can log on for 30 min or 4 hours and still feel like I accomplished something.
The leve system for fishing, mining and botany.
To me it doesn't matter how many years it takes to level any job. At this time I love logging in and can decide what kinda mood I am in. Sometimes I just like to do repetitive crafting--sometimes I like to take out my pug and just hit stuff! Nice thing is I can do this with or without a party and I love it.
There is no way you can please everyone all the time or even some of the time. I just enjoy the game.
I come to this forum for information and hate all the complaints so felt I would write a possitive one.
