I was going to pick up FFXIV with a friend but I had a few questions about the game that I wanted to get cleared up before I made a purchase:
I made a reddit article asking to see if I could use someone's account to answer these questions myself, but despite that someone agreed to let me use theirs another user pointed me to the benchmarking tool which cleared up the questions "Can I run it?"
So my questions are as follows:
1) I played the FFXIV Beta, and during which the game used a software cursor which made navigating the game rather cumbersome unless you were using a strict keyboard or controller setup; has this issue been cleared up by Square Enix? I remember there being a player-made patch during the beta which was not supported.
2) I don't remember specifically where this was said, but I read that Square was going to expand the chat box functionality by allowing you to type messages longer than the very limited amount which was in initially, I could barely write a sentence before reaching the character-cap in the chat box. Has this been remedied?
3) Regarding the armoury system: does spreading your character between multiple Disciplines limit your character in any way, or can you be both a master Armorsmith and a master Gladiator with enough time invested?
Thank you in advance!
