So I started playing XIV when it launched but dropped off in the early 20 levels because everything looked so similar. I've been looking up a lot of info of what they've been redoing and it's insane the amount of changes they're making - I'm looking forward to it. But I'm to understand that once the 7th Umbral Era (v2) goes live, which I read to be somewhere near the end of the year, the old story is going to be no longer accessible? I don't want to miss out on it but I don't want to trudge to 50 in the same environments if it's not worth it.
Is the current story worth playing the game?
