Lately, i am pretty tired of just doing the same 8 leve or even group with others to do leves.
Let's just say, i am no longer interest in getting the quest... run half of the map kill 3 things and return and repeat.
I am also playing DC universe right now, and the content quests that FFXIVer seem to want exist here, and let me say that, i am not even enjoying them either, i rather have leve system.
Not only most of the quests are "kill XXXX, collect XXXX, or bring XXX or use XXX" the only change is the scenario (whoever request), location and what you fight are different. Other then that it is 100% repeating. Although DC universe feature an unique instance with a boss battle after 2-3 quest in the line.
The game play is absolutely same as WoW's quest. And i have a feeling The new director will implant something similar into FFXIV.
I think FFXIV needs the old "team and get go" grinding style. Leve system is ok for those seeking for groups, but group grinding should be the major experience advancement overall. Not group leves, because it is still just the same.
I think those who agree with me are the old FFXI'er, the leve system or WoW's quest system is ruining the game. It is the EVIL that is ruining our social aspect of FFXIV because we no longer have a common objective, there is no need for communication.
The new director need to understand this point. Not adding more leve or changing the style of leve. It is team grinding from FFXI that make the game great. Not to mention, the abilities to think about what setup make it works make FFXI a true great game, of course, there are those anti-social that can't make a group and quit.
