one of my biggest complaints about FFXIV was Eorzea.
It was a rather dull & boring setting in every aspect.
unlike Vanadiel where as a kid I would DREAM about existing within that universe... I don't think I would wanna live in Eorzea over the real world. even WITH the ability to use magic and fight monsters. Eorzea is just lame.
I got to level 50 in FFXIV and all I ever encountered was dirt paths and repetitive grasslands.
where are the Xarcabards? the Yuhtunga jungles? Kazham! the sky, the sea! a city which rests on the back of a giant monsters! a city beneath the ocean.
a city with out of place technology & science in a world of fantasy.
if you compare the immersiveness (Is that a word?) and 'magic' of Eorzea's starting cities (Uldah, Gridania, Limsalomimsa) to FFXI's (San d'oria, Windurst, Bastok)... it's a sad joke to say the least.
so my point of this thread is, do you think they can FIX Eorzea? do you think they can turn this rather generic/standard cookie cutter shire+dirty road world into a fantastical world?
and what areas do you want to see to make that happen?
