My First Day...

Public
So today marks my first day playing FFXIV. Never had a built-in blog for an MMO before, not sure how often I'll really use it but its delightful to have the option! :D

I was a long time fan of the Final Fantasy Series from way back, but never got into FFXI and I hated FFXIII(still do). But I will always love Final Fantasy 1 through 10 as well as FFXII(I know some people didn't like it, I did.)
After being stuck on *coughs* another MMO which will remain nameless for about 12 years... I wasn't eager to try another, but I had a friend who talked me into giving the free trial a go.
Honestly playing the trial gave me a feeling I hadn't had in a long time, one that could only be described as "coming home" so far FFXIV for me recaptures the feel and essence of the old school FF's and hits that fantasic golden zone between 'Fresh' and 'Familiar'
Once my Trial was up it was only a matter of time until I jumped into the game for real, and well here I am.
I'm looking forward to meeting the FFXIV community and digging into the game itself, should be very interesting.

thanks for the heads up on that Aelia, the game i left was wow. Left cause I loath wow-Legion the game dev's there seem to want to actively punish people for have multiple chars now. Having 30+ max level chars there I decided it was time to call it a day
Loving FFXIV so far, I'm replaying quests I did on the free trial now after remaking my main character. Normally its the kind of thing I'd find dull but necessary, but surprisingly even repeating ones I've done before I am still having a blast.

On XIV you can level all classes on one char (unlocked after you hit level 10 on starter class) and still have alts *hides her madness*

But yea it is a huge advantage that you do not need multiple characters to have different classes/roles but I myself cannot quite compare only tried one other MMO and that for like 30 min :P

yeah i was told about the whole all-in-one deal, still I'm an Alt'holic I'll likely end up running at least 20 characters if only for rp purposes lol

Welcome to Eorzea Rand!

I hope you enjoy the game and stay with us for a long time. ;P

Leveling alts here is a little painful since you need to redo MSQ, unlock basic cross class skills, flying, etc
But I guess we're going to get something similar to the WOW character boost in the next expansion. XD

Good luck and have fun!

thnx:D I'm weird, I am actually the kind of player who doesn't mind(enjoys really) doing story content over again. I used to play all the old FF's(1-10) over and over again. Even if they put in the 'boost' system I doubt I'd ever use it lol
