So I just read something I find quite funny.
FFXIV basically lies and gives a false impression of the leveling system on your first playthrough. I doubt many players know this that haven't experienced it themsleves yet.
The first time you level a job, you get all these quests and stories right? Guess what though, they don't reset when you swap job. This means that to level another jobs you have to flat out grind without quests (or if you do have extra quests on the 2nd job, you sure own't have any on the 3rd or 4th or more). Grind fates, grind mobs, grind leves. Grind, grind, grind, welcome to the asian grind machine.
The single best thing about the game is undermined by quests not resetting, people will be making new chars for jobs due to not being able to quest after the first job. So much for the muilti job system.
