IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY, FIND THE 20 THREADS BELOW THIS ONE AND POST YOUR COMMENTS THERE!


As the Title implies, what were some of the things you took from EA in a good way or something that you really enjoyed?

For me:
- The main story thus far has been very interesting, i for one read ALL the conversations and really get into the lore that makes up FFXIV.
- The Ifrit fight. Pure fun, and easy enough to where anyone of average skill could manage it.
- My first minion, it was the tiny airship. (which honestly i have no idea where i got it from, just found it in my inventory)
- The sound of my better-half's reaction when she got her snipper minion, she looooves snippers every since 11.
- The night sky in Thanalan.
- Chocobo porters, god send for those without our own yet.
- And finally, I got a decent understanding of the layout and maps of the major areas.

Ok, there's mine, lets hear some pros.

EDIT: So good i had to add this: Rested EXP! So much thanks to all the 'maintenance'

I'm just going to fix something for you...the tiny airship is a minion not a mount and you get more of those as you progress in the game. You got it from doing the airship quests I believe in main story.

I cleared the first 5 dungeons and came away with a few pieces of gear...tho I wish it was a pink weapon.
I got my chocobo and named her Hikari.
I got to 2nd rank for grand company....dont remember what the rank is called.
Our FC made it to rank 3 right before I got kicked off for the day by game crash.
I made it to level 28 on my conjurer and still have plenty of quests to do so getting to that magical 30 is within reach.

#9BoxOfPocky, Posted: Aug 25 2013 at 8:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Pros? Is this like a desperation act to try and keep hope alive? I did almost all of that during the previous beta tests. This EA is the chance for me to experience new aspects of the games, not to be held back from doing it.

I haven't been making a ton of progress due to the server congestion, but what I have done I've thoroughly enjoyed! I've just been having a blast in general.

I did make like 6 characters because I have a character addiction problem.

1. I second the story line (as far as i've gotten considering). The characters actually have, well, character and I find myself wondering what the next chapter will hold. 1.0 never gave me that feeling until close to the end of official service, like patch 1.23 forward.

2. I thoroughly enjoy the new DoH and DoL systems. I got sooo tired of playing the mini-game every single time I wanted to do anything in either of those disciplines.

3. Scenery in general, almost everywhere I visited in P4 and EA is great. I see very little of the copypasta we became accustomed to. In this case, the zoning concept worked out well for the artists and rendering.

4. The various systems and activities that you can do at any given time, and there's so much more to come in 2.1!

A silly little thing that made me go oooooohhh at the screen was logging out in an inn room.
My character actually jumped onto the bed and curled up to sleep.
After years of having a Noble's bed in my Mog House in XI and wishing my character could lie on it, that wish was finally fulfilled.

I managed to get to level 14 before calling it quits for the weekend.

Despite the frustration from trying to get logged in, I had a great time in game. Really loving the story and scenery so far. In Beta, I sort of breezed through most of the dialogue to keep "spoiling" at a minimum, but now that I took the time to soak it all in, I'm very impressed with it.

Combat with my 360 pad was a blast, despite a few targeting issues. Seems more fluid and refined compared to my time in phase 2 & 3.

I'm really excited to try out my first dungeon soon, and to seek out a Linkshell/Company for team efforts.

They've done a fantastic job remaking the game. I can't wait for more play time during the week :)

No, but you keep repeating that claim as if it's demonstrably true. I think every one is unhappy that the servers have had so many problems so far, but not everyone feels the need to **** all over any one and every one perpetually, as you do.

There are plenty of threads for venting, and you could even make a fresh one if you want, but instead you make off topic posts here. That's a lack of emotional maturity.

Forgetting I could jump, and running around things. Then it hit me, and I was jumping all over the place :p

Reading all the intro quest, come Tuesday if/when I reroll I know I can just skip over the speaker box and get on with it :D

Trolling? funny because i'm not running around looking for threads to ***** in when clearly this is not the thread for that, there are dozens of other threads for that. I'm not a fan boy of SE, i haven't been able to log in all day but guess what, from what little i was able to play, i enjoyed it, so guess what, i made a thread about it, as i'm sure you made ones to post your distaste for EA. Please please keep posting so we can continue to sub-default your sorry ***. I enjoyed the time in EA, all be it to short, and i thought i'd post a thread out of the norm giving the history of threads today.

Even worse were the ones that put you into a CS to open the door/gate/whatever

I enjoyed playing as gladiator since phase 3 only had me playing conjurer and thamaturge. Me and my girlfriend duo'd some level 18 mobs for our hunting logs at level 11 through me kiting them as gladiator and her nuking as thamaturge.

I enjoyed questing and more and more am liking the stories for each guild. So far Conjurers has the best story through their quest line which I won't spoil.

Also this is my first online game with a last name system--people come up with last names that are funny as ****, enjoyed laughing at some of those.

Also I was at very thrilled to log on and get to play, I think most peoples frustrations lied with the anticipation and build up of the game.
