This shows you either know very little of the subject or have a biased opinion
Ah, sweet irony.
I was going to say, Pot... Kettle... Black.
I don't disagree completely Ostia, the 1.0 duty finder was not used. I certainly cannot refute that but I do think it was versatile. Once you understood how it worked you could group based on your current sidequest, storyline quest, if you just wanted to EXP, behests, guildleves, pretty much every activity available, etc... You basically entered the activity you wanted to do and if there were enough people it would group you.
I agree this new duty finder is good. Certainly it is easier to find and is in a format people are used to seeing. I still think it misses the mark as a one stop shop for grouping people to do content. There is more to the game than just dungeons and guildhests. Thank goodness they still have the player search feature. I wonder how many people will use it or realize it exists.
Edit: I almost forgot with the 1.0 duty finder you could set the recruiting requirements for your party. If you wanted all disciples of magic you could set the search up that way. I didn't see that feature either. Edited, Jul 7th 2013 5:42am by kainsilv
