Is it just me are does grinding fates seem stupid? Like what did you buy the game for? Obviously not the content. Then they get to 50 and are like "Omgz this game is the suxors! NO game content, will be F2P in a week, and then servers will shutdown!!11!!!1!111!11" or "Well just another crap MMO WoW rip off where i get to endgame and have to grind dungeons" Like WTF are playing this game for then, go play hello kitty island or something ffs. Or, I dunno, maybe try actually playing the game as a whole and having some fun with it.
I am by no means a "hardcore" MMO player, nor am I a SE fanboi, I did not play FF11 although I have played a majority of the other FF games. I did play WoW for 7 years, GW 1 and 2, and Rift. I have 2 kids and a full time job, I get about 2 hours to play in the afternoon while the kids take a nap, and then after about 9pm I play till I start to fall asleep, usually sometime around 2am. That being said, I am only lvl 34 on my BLM and I am loving this game, the quests, fates, dungeons, hunting log, leves, its all fun to me and I never feel like I don't have something to do. I mean sure, I can't wait to get to endgame, but I also can't wait to start leveling some other jobs. IMO if your bored in this game that's your own damn fault. I honestly feel like I havent had this much fun in an MMO since Vanilla WoW/Burning Crusade.
And as far as the duty finder, either make a tank/healer (I played a death knight tank in Wrath for this particular reason), or find one on your server and make them your best friends. One of my close friends is a tank, and I have literally had zero bad experiences in the duty finder, minus the random elitists that show up every now and again and try to tell everyone what to do and tell everyone they are stupid and will fail at endgame, which i just tend to brush those aholes off.
Sorry for the tangent, but it gets annoying listening to people bash this game when really its still in its infancy.
I have to admit, I'm looking forward to Subscriptions going live just to clear out some of the nonsense.
This right here, I honestly hope this game stays sub based just to weed out the morons.
