On a certain other forum that shall not be mentioned (Scum and Villainy) there was recently a discussion on how high level players tend to behave as though the content they've already cleared once no longer exists. This was met with a response from one player of, essentially, "lol how many times a week do you run Sastasha, n00b?"
And I realized my answer would have been "a couple."
I like FFXIV's dungeons. I like almost all of them, in fact, with the exceptions of Toto-Rak (too many blind corners) and Aurum Vale (Pet user? /darthvadernoooooo.jpg). On my SMN and SCH, and especially my WAR I like to go back and whoop the **** out of the lower level dungeons during my offtime between LS activities. Brayflox is especially my favorite victim for my WAR.
I don't really get anything out of them but a paltry little bit of EXP, true. And a few tomes from Stone Vigil, CM, Prae, and Darkhold. But.... the dungeons themselves are fun. The bosses are fun to fight. Few things make me as happy as dragging Aiatar around the boss arena by his nose like a *****, smacking him in the face with Tomahawks as I'm running away to reposition him, and Brutal Swinging him in the nose when he tries to breathe on me.
Do people not do dungeons for fun? I'm an old-hat PSO player. I ran the same 4 dungeons back to back for years and enjoyed it. Is that not a thing in XIV?
