This really bothered me. So fucking stupid. Shadowbringer's story is... decent to good, not exceptional, mostly thanks to Emet-Selch*, which is a really great villain.building the giant Talos through the power of friendship
The ending of ARR is the best part of the whole game (at least until they fuck it up with the SHE'S NOT REALLY DEAD LOL which is crap writing that comes up way too much in this game*). The story in the expansions is... not shit like in most MMOs, but it isn't something as exceptional as people are depicting it. You're just used to shitty writing.ARR isn't even the best story of FFXIV. Heavensward and Shadowbringers are much better.
While it is true that most people exaggerate how "bad" ARR is, you haven't yet gotten to the point where it becomes a bit of a slog. Without spoiling anything: you're almost there...I started recently, my character is lvl 29 right now.
The game is alright in it's current form.
Yeah, I try to keep expectations in check for that reason. If all you hear is "omg it's the best Final Fantasy story in years", then your expectations are going to be unreasonably high for a story that isn't that great begin with.Shadowbringer's story is... decent to good, not exceptional
"Its".The game is alright in it's current form.
Keep your expectorations in check, but it's definitely the best since IX, though. Which isn't saying much anyway...If all you hear is "omg it's the best Final Fantasy story in years"
Anyway, you're not to that point yet. What people usually think about when talking about the slog problem, is the constant need to go back and fort to the Scion's base. Go to the other side of the world, talk to NPC1 then come back to the Waking Sands. Now tha you're back go talk to NPC2 and come back to the Waking Sands. And so on. It's infuriating at times.

fuck you, nomura
New Moonfire Faire:
Leveling should be pretty smooth going with the newest update (coming out tomorrow), so I don't think you have to stress yourself over that. Just don't forget that healers in XIV are supposed to DPS as well.I'm looking to get started in FFXIV given that wow is in such a terrible state. Have always played a healer so will probably be going white mage first. Any suggestions in getting through the leveling process efficiently, and is there a GAF community (FC I think?) or is everyone scattered doing their own thing?
ohh imagine they drop pvp mode for this with ability to customize our own G-Warrior. Player going crazy.Great ending for Shadowbringers. But Heavensward is still king.
Sapphire Weapon fight was super fun too, hope we get a PvP mode based on that or something else because it would be a waste to have that as a one-time-only occurance.
You can do both. Starting city depends on the job you chose at character creation. Dragoon is Gridania.
And yeah, other races suck ass.
Oh wow, you really are from ARR launch! Yeah, there are no more cross-class stuff like that anymore. You just play Lancer to eventually get to Dragoon. Once you hit lvl 15 I think, you can freely travel between city-states and choose what you like since you're not fond of Ul'dah.Is dragoon an entry class now? I thought I remember having to level up like a marauder and some other class in order to get the Dragoon? Sorry it's been a while
Same. I want to tackle the Beast Tribe quests, some emotes and mounts are locked behind it that I want. Going to be a pain since I never bother with crafting in RPG's, but at least it's nothing difficult.I don't really like crafting much, but I've been leveling mine since there's all these beast tribe quests and other crafting stuff now. I have two crafters at cap and the rest in the 50-80 range. Except armorer. For some reason I forgot about that one is it is level 3.
It actually is possible to solo most HW EX trials as a tank (Sephirot and Zurvan are the only ones I haven't been able to).. but they aren't easy (still have to respect mechanics) and not necessarily "farmable". Maybe by 5.5 they will all be solo farmable.True esp with Beast Tribes they just give the mats lol
EDIT: Question: As a LVL 80, it should be possible to solo the HW EX Trials to grind for Mounts, right? I know for Stormblood you'd obviously need a party even unsynced.
Well, I got it installed but I can't log in. I did a password reset as I couldn't remember it and that did seem to work. I can let g in online with that Square Enix Id but I can't on my PS4. This is the definition of frustrating. I did the password reset through the PS4 as well and it worked fine...
Wtf am I doing wrong?

Good morning and thank you for posting on the Final Fantasy XIV Technical Support Forums.
If the PSN tells you that you have already purchased the game, either you have already purchased it or you will have to contact Sony to clear up any licensing issues. The free trial will not affect this as the Playstation Network will treat it like a demo.
For this situation, we suggest contacting Playstation Support, as we do not have the resources to troubleshoot an error of this nature. Playstation support can be contacted here: https://support.us.playstation.com/
We hope we can be of assistance in helping you enjoy the exciting world of Final Fantasy XIV!
