Thought I'd ask about something out of the ordinary from what we're used to. Now I'm only level 21 so I obviously haven't progressed far in the story (and no heavy spoilers please :)), but as much as I don't want to compare this to FFXI, I think this is something that is lacking for me.

When playing in FFXI, you saw the beastmen frequently in any given area, and as you progressed through the quests and story lines, you could see what role they had to play adding that sense of impending danger knowing enemies are so close to home.

So, I don't what the main threat is in FFXIV quite yet, but does anyone else think it would be nice to see more of whatever enemy signifies the big evil of Eorzea in the game?

yeah i'd like to see more enemy soldiers (is it ironic that i can't even remember the name of the evil empire in this game?) like the ones i ran across in the rank 26 gridania storyline quest. put them in small parties of tank mage dd and have them running around on random missions that put them in player populated areas.

XIV needs some campaign type events and the empire seems like a good excuse.

That's still something, to me, that feels like it's supposed to be there but missing. Anytime I run into those abandoned campfires around the world I immediately think "there should be gobs or beastmen here". I guess there's other explanations that can be made for the campfires and it could conflict with some of the storyline, but I wouldn't mind seeing more beastmen worked in somehow.

The overall world seems to have no story to it like FFXI had which was awesome. It is like walking through history.

Really needs more random beastman parties in the further areas of the zones. Also enemy diversity closer to towns/better arranging of the monsters. You shouldnt go from killing some rank 5 Doblyn, round the corner and run into a rank 25+ Antlion.

I dunno if the Garlean empire has actually invaded yet, but im not that far into the story...and well...theres no evidence of them being around.

Should be some lower level versions of antlion, flan, all beastmen, abd other monsters just to keep things fresh.

I agree i have made this post before requesting more beastmen or any main enemy that is visible, a war would do eaorezia good as it would unify the players and give us a reason why we are fighting and levelling. as at the moment we are just grinding mobs for crafting.
I like crafting but in this game it is the main focus or so it seems, and crafting so we can repair our gear may be necessary, but is BORING.

So yeah i do wish they would give us some beastmen

Yeah, I've always felt odd having squirrels and mice all over the place instead of the beastmen like we had in XI. I know it's a different game with a different storyline, but still... =/
