I did a very tiny amount of beta testing for this game (I say very little because my pc couldn't handle it at the time) but I recently upgraded to a new pc. After playing WoW (cata was fail), SW:ToR(was okay), and am currently playing Rift.

Anyways, I have heard many negative things and many positive things since the game launched but in the last ~4 months I haven't heard anything.

What I'm getting at is, is the game worth picking up?
How is the community/classes/crafting/ anything else?

What I would advise is that you wait at least until June. Pick it up then to get all of the bonuses of the bonus content for paid customers. Starting around then will also give you plenty to do, and enough time to get some jobs leveled before 2.0.

Starting now is fine too, but you will have less to do in game and will be waiting like the rest of us for patches and content. You will also have to relearn content a few times as they revamp each system before 2.0.

If you do pick it up now, just pace yourself. Please don't rush to do everything. This game is going through some changes. Would hate to see you burn out.

Thanks for the advice. Just got home from some errands and managed to run across a FF14 Collector's Edition for $20, so I went ahead and picked it up. I'll try to take it slow, with all of the jobs, it seems like there is a lot of stuff to do starting out.

I picked it up a week ago and it appears that there is plenty of content especially with the new jobs coming out fairly soon. I have pugilist at 25 already and a couple others around 10. I feel really behind especially with new jobs that are coming but I am really enjoying the game. It is a nice pace away from SWTOR and other cookie-cutters out there.

The grand company intro quests are a pain though and i needs more Anima!
