To start off with, I was originally interested in FFXIV when it was announced a few years ago, I followed it for a year and even played in the open beta just before release. Unfortunately because of that experience I never actually got the game, and waited to see for any improvements and just played other games to pass the time. I played FFXI for a few years when it was released 2004-2006 to be exact and the game eventually became disappointing as well and was hoping that this game would change everything for me.
Well as you can tell by that little story it never happened and I just forgot this game existed for a little while, then randomly I see beta key for FFXIV A Realm Reborn on PS3 news and I was just curious that they made an expansion only to find its a remake of the game. I did keep up on news from time to time in the past to see how it was progressing, however I'm quite out of the loop now and couldn't find any real answers as its probably buried under a mountain of posts.
Now for my questions; Are they still going with the Auto attack sequence? I'm just confused on how the battle will take place.
Will there be active attack and blocking in the game? Can I dodge attacks that are clearly telegraphed? As a brand new player when I log in for the first time will I see max level people running around because they played the original? I noticed that they have a new job system similar to FFXI. Any word if there will be more than what has be introduced and will they included new weapons?
*edit* I just thought of another question, In regards to the UI for PS3 and PC versions, how will they differ? Are they the same or do you scroll through the hotkeys with the dpad and press x to fire them off? Just curious.
Well thats all I can think of for right now, if there is anything that you know of you'd like to add as I am still pretty confused and overwhelmed when looking at this different posts that would be great.
