Hi I'm kinda new to FFXIV, and I'm not sure what to do now. I just finished all my levequests and now I don't know where to go or what to do? I'm just at Camp Bentbranch, can someone help me out on what to do next?

Play the game?

Not sure what rank or type of player you are but there's quests, crafting, the summer event, solo grinding/drop farming, group SP grinds, the rank 25 raid at Toto-Rak or just chill in a city and chat with people. MMOs aren't a linear experience. "What's next" is up to you.

For most players, even players of other MMOs (Recent MMOs, like WoW, not the good old sand-box style MMO) playing FFXIV or it's predecessor can be like having the floor (or in this case rails) dropped out from under you.

Admittedly, I do actually think a little more guidance for newer players is in order, introducing them to all of the game's content in an intelligent way, and making sure they know what all their available options are and fully understand them, once they're released.

For now, that's not really the case. I suggest some exploration! Run around, see the sights, nab some quests, try out another class, grind on some enemies around your level, or find a social linkshell (FFXIV's guilds) to chat with. More than any one thing, having a community of other players to ask questions and play around with is going to give you the strongest foothold on what there is to do in Eorzea.

Storyline quest get that greenwrath off your body.Grind till rank 20 so guilds will give you quest if you did the Storyline Fade to Black quest. Walk to Uldah I think that's where most if not all people hang out on servers.

Do some of the NPC quests, explore a little, do storyline. Try out different classes.

Do what my friend did: start cutting yourself for thirty-six hours straight. Just be sure you've had your shots. He said it dulled the mental pain with physical pain, but he didn't realize that that was exactly how the system was designed. I still miss my friend, sometimes...

Never had someone ask "Wut do?" when it comes to an MMO. I mean there is crafting, questing, exploring, partying, making money by whatever means or just randomly stabbing some unsuspecting monster just to see if you can beat it. If all else fails I suppose you can find a linkshell and help out random members with whatever they are doing.

Log off for 36 hours, and then log back in to do the same thing you did 36 hours ago....

Or you can try and craft.....

Finding a party, grinding out DOL stuff, or just killing random stuff for items and sp are much better alternatives than logging off.

Kiling the same mobs over and over and over can only go so far, it really gets old in my personal opinion about the 3hour mark after you start doing it.

Finding a party

I haven't played the game much since January. I'm just curious, how do you go about finding a party in FFXIV? To my knowledge there's no proper system of putting up a flag and waiting for an invite (or search tools to make a party).

Go to Uldah and look for shouts.

You can shout your level and class (LFG), which sometimes promts people to create a party, knowing that they aren't starting from scratch.

Join an LS. When you meet some people in Ul'dah or in parties, ask if you can join their LS. After you have LS mates then you will become part of Leve parties or SP parties more easily.

Um, if he is at bentbranch something tells me he isn't ready for Toto-Rak... and also, most MMOs ARE a more linear experience. In most games you don't have 8 quests to do and then have to make up fun as you go. XI was like that to a certain extent but most games actually pull you along as long as you want to play - there is always something pulling you towards the next step/rank/whatever.

So it is a valid question.

OP, I would suggest you try doing your crafting leves - or buy a gathering tool and try gathering.

Failing that you might want to look at the abilities you can get from other classes - find one you would like - and level up until you get it. For example you get "Cure" from Conjurer at level 4. Since even discipline of war classes get MP, it is worthwhile to have cure to help you fight tougher enemies.

I suggest doing this because it should offer you some immediate gratification (it doesn't take long to get to like lvl 4) and it will make your main class stronger.

Take a look at class abilities in the Zam database and think about how you want your character to progress ^^;

The irony that the Japanese make very sandboxy non-linear MMOs, while western developers make very linear, guided experience MMOs.

I like the sandbox thing, personally, I can't stand to have my hand held, but I don't blame folks like the OP, who have been raised on linear progression MMOs for getting confused.

Sandbox, when does correctly (pre-NGE Galaxies) is amazing. This... is not sandbox done correctly. Even today.
