When I first started ffxi near its release, i bought the brady game strategy guide. While I understand that these mmo's are constantly updated, and that the guide was useless and outdated after a couple years into its making, I really enjoyed the aspect of reading about classes/equipment/maps/monsters/quests/etc. Especially to the newcomers of the game, I feel as if it helps more people understand/learn the game when they start, rather than ragequit and hate the game because they cannot figure out the UI and aren't familiar with the online ff games.
My question is if anyone knows whether or not there is talk about making a guide that will be sold in retail. I am going to play the game regardless, i love both online final fantasies and am a huge fan. I was just curious if anyone knew. I understand that there are many sites, including this one for help on quests and whatnot, but just think a strategy guide would attract more people, and keep those consumers in the game, as opposed to leaving from frustration.
Just my two cents. Curious what everyone else thinks.
