I really enjoyed dungeon crawling in xi, soloing or duoing nasties in castle oz or quicksand caves. I look forward to finding things like this in xiv as well :D

To seek out new life and new civilizations
To boldly go where no hyur has gone before.

Although I was never a huge Star Trek fan, that opening sequence always gave me the chills. It was so well written and Picard's voice was so perfect for it.

I plan to take my time and enjoy everything, not just endgame. Take in as much story as physically possible and still hopefully do content before they make it easier :/ I hope they give us adequate time.

Like most people are saying, I'm really excited to explore and have fun with buddies. My favorite thing in FFXI was when a quest or storyline would take me behind some door or area I would never go through otherwise.

I'm planning on doing some crafting, PvP, and ************ in general. The main thing I'll be doing is gearing up for raids though. Once you're geared, it's the perfect thing to do if you only have a few hours here and there. I can plan ahead and schedule some time for myself to head in once per week and make some progress.

Honestly like someone else said: just enjoy myself.

I would like to run some endgame dungeons and complete some gear sets. It seems that the DF would make that a bit easier.

I'd like to participate in GC and FC events when I can and maybe do a bit of PVP (though not that much).

Get a high level craft and DoH.

Nothing too crazy.

I picked crafting, as I'm into that aspect and might try to make a FC around it. But I suspect I'll race to 50, feel accomplished, finish the main story line and cut out.

I have three goals:

1. Create a successful casual free company with my friends.

2. Level up all classes/jobs/professions. I want to be Jack-of-all-Trades (master of none). I want to be able to fill any slot in a party. (This doesn't mean I won't hve my favorites ;) )

3. Have fun. :D

To lead groups through Endgame content. To master every class that interests me. To cap out nearly all of the professions. To possibly look into the PvP, for fun.

I want to do it all. Call me ambitious, I just call it motivated.

I can't really select anything. My goals are simple, though, and true with every MMO I play, especially this one and Guild Wars 2. Quite simply, my goals are to have fun, help people wherever and however I can, and to enjoy the experience and the story to the fullest extent possible. If it takes me awhile to reach endgame, then so be it. If it takes very little time, then so be it. I just want to have fun. Smiley: lol Smiley: smile

That...is my goal in this game. Smiley: smile

Well, like many others, my main goal is to just enjoy the game and have fun. I'd like to be able to level many classes/jobs, and explore every inch of Eorzea.

My personal/selfish goal...is to get the three Miqo'te dancers in Ul'Dah to follow me around wherever I go... Smiley: nod

None of the above. I'm playing because life long friends I've made from XI are playing XIV and hoping the same level fun that was had then with them can be had again.

Hey Patrick Stewart, will you please order my tea for me? (What kind of tea, anyone?)

Oh yeah, my goal is to level up. I just enjoy it when numbers get bigger.

Man, I know this is off-topic (sorry!), but reading that reminds me so much of a guy I grouped with in EQOA.

I was tanking, and this guy was playing a Wizard. I'd pull a mob, and he'd immediately cast his strongest spell. Then, he'd cast it again. After those two casts, he'd tell the group he was "out of mana", and he remained so for the next three fights. My friend 'n I finally stopped and asked him why he keeps using the strongest spell if it wipes out his mana so fast...his response? "Because I like to see big numbers!". Facepalming ensued.

More on-topic, I can agree with wanting to get further along in level, to see more 'n more of the game...

No Social/Companionship or RP option?

Literally nothing about immuring yourself in the world at all?
No mention of the storyline... or collectables, or chocobo raising or achievement hunting...

WTF options are these, man!?

Level ALL classes to max and learn them so that i can fill any void needed.
End Game
lots of my friends and family play so for communication among those i never get to physically see anymore.
my crafting will come at a much later day i do believe (i feel this is a bad decision but it is what it is)
and most of all to enjoy myself and have a good time meeting new gamers like myself!

You left out the part about sleeping with the green chicks.

And for myself I have to say crafting. I'd for once like to play havoc with server economy. Raise and lower things on a whim just to randomly throw everyone else off. Plus I just enjoy the crafting here.

I think people are still reeling over the fact that there is now more to do in the game than attack stuff, craft stuff, or gather stuff...

This game is so different from the first release that people are now complaining about the fact that there may be issues logging in because of the server volume... Could you imagine having login issues with 1.0 because there were too many people trying to play?

There are like quests, and real dungeons, and people talking, and hanging out. There are houses, and Companies, and NPCs that actually say stuff that is funny on purpose. There are ferries and airships. There is weather and unique terrian, and jumping and falling. There are moogles (ok the moogles that are trying to kill you are MIA again...). There are primals, and Artifacts, and Jobs, and F.A.T.E.s.

There are Couerl, Chcocbo, Goobbue, and Unicorn mounts (ok, two of those are restricted mounts...).

There is even an option to have your chocobo fight with you... And I have heard rumor that Fat Chocobo may even be around.

Lightning is coming, and other FF classicis *may* make an appearance.

And lets not forget the everloving race to Jueno style route from Ul'dah to Ishguard worthy of any level 1 challenge. Personally I wish they would have made that an achievement.

There is actually a learning curve, and my god are there minions... I never thought I would be a pet herder/hoarder... BUT I WANTS THEM!!!
