Wow, that duty finder is fantastic. No time looking for/forming groups making PUGs much nicer than usual as everyone has had a chance to practice.
Took Maurader to 16 in P4 and it was just like when I first logged into 11, wowed me at every corner, especially after playing 1.0.
Yeah I really like the duty finder, nice an painless. I also like that I can switch to FSH while waiting on another job.
Agreed on all points. It was fantastic as a follow-up to 1.0 as well as set in the unique world I've come to love, but modernized to fit today's lifestyles (in reference to XI). They've done it right in my opinion.
There was a time in my younger years that I had the time to sit and wait LFG all night long. Now as a full-time worker and aspiring family man I just don't have that kind of time to dedicate to a game. I love that XIV let me feel the nastolgia without tying me up too harshly.
The gameplay to time ratio is balanced just so that I can enjoy the game as what I'd consider to be a hard core'ish player without segregating me for being an adult, and I can still feel the sense of accomplishment when I gain Rank 1 in my hunting journal, finish quests, etc. All without LFG for hours.
