I want to experience the new content, but with my existing character...I don't have the time or the desire to repeat the grind. Why should I have to pay the price for them releasing a sub-par game two years ago?
This is where I stand, too. I didn't powerlevel my way to to lvl 50 like so many others did, so I really don't want to spend any additional time re-grinding on jobs I already have. I could make a mule for crafting or gathering, perhaps, and level that mule to get through the main story.
What I'm hoping though is that everyone will start the game at Square 1 on the main story quest, and the only thing you keep from Version 1 would be your gear, gil, levels, etc.
