elemental weakness isnt in this game becaise it was too complex/they wanted to keep it simple as to not have ppl accidentally do something like cast fire on Ifrit and heal him?
first off you can always make it so that casting fire on a fire mob doesnt heal them but instead does litte to no damage (i mean how many monsters in FFXI got healed when attacked with their element? very few) secondly too complex? Umm 6 year olds know water beats fire, lightning beats water etc etc I mean lost of kids play Pokemon and it has those very attributes .. soo elemental weaknesses is too complex for FFXIV but it exists in a kids game (pokemon) so theyre saying the ppl who play FFXIV have lesser minds than a kid playing Pokemon? really? Thats about as "insulting" as the US version of Super Mario 2 we were given because the JPs though the REAL mario 2 would be too hard for us lol.
