I think I have found the reason I find it hard to settle into this game, I really want to enjoy it as I love Final Fantasy and as of yet I think its the only the title that is keeping me playing.
I know SE wanted to make it easy to transfer us from XI to XIV, which is fair enough, I understand that to a degree. However, I really think they could of added new races, the reson I am not high level right now is I can't settle on one character. I find my self constantly deleting characters to try new looks and try get a new feeling to the game.
I don't feel like XIV has anything new to offer in that region, and when I first logged on I wasn't all pleased with my character like I was in XI, thinking I looked the bees knees and in XI we all looked the same!
There is no race backgrounds where as in XI we were told a story about the races why they are in the citys they are in etc. I know none of that in XIV, they are all mixed. I don't mind that but I want to know why?
I really think if there were new races this game would be more appealing, perhaps more people from XI would come over if there was something new to look at?
I hope in the future they implement new races to the game. However I can't really see this happening.
