No.

Good thing it doesn't take a few weeks to get one class to the cap, let alone for the combat to start getting interesting :)

I mean, I think interesting is a stretch, while I admit I only got to 30 on my GLD and have nowhere near your experience, even if it sped up dramatically by a full second and you gained abilities that were very different and mostly all necessary, interesting would be hopeful. MP management can create some priority in your rotation but it won't detract from the waiting. Combat in ARR is passable and there isn't all that much going on right now, I think this is what a lot of non diehard FF fans are looking at.

Hey maybe I'm wrong, and it will be way more fluid and and varying at 50, which with the awesome bosses will be "interesting" to play.

 

and the combat can go through changes pretty easly if it has to look at 1.0

yeah! 50!! isnt that awesome!? people will only be having fun after 50!! If getting to 50 took 2weeks~ at least I know Ill be having fun after 2wks till I quit the game years later. At least its not like *cough* GW2 when fun starts at lvl 1 and took 2 weeks to get to max and its no fun no more and its quits already. Hmm.. a game that lasts years or a game that lasts 2weeks....

I would advise the OP to not play the game at lower levels if they are not having fun.Just move along to another game.

It improves at later levels, but it's still the most boring and uninspired system I've played in some time.  (42 PLD and 32 WHM here).

Combat is boring when you grind mobs for 14 hrs a day, four days straight.

 

Levels won't fix that.

Games should be interesting and engaging right off the bat. FFXIV is not.

If you expect everything engaging about a game to hinge on its combat, especially in the early experience, you're not stopping to smell the roses, so-to-speak. The fun part of starting a new MMO for me is the novelty and charm of setting out to explore a new game world, and the enthusiasm/friendliness of new players all around me. FFXIV provides all that plus a new variation on the classic FF charms. The fact that I was spamming the 1 key for much of the first couple hours didn't bug me in the slightest due to all this. If none of that matters to you, then I guess I'm not going to convince you - but I suspect you're going to be dissatisfied with most MMOs in the foreseeable future.

I couldn't force myself to log into the 3rd beta. The combat was that dull.

FFXI on the other hand was a game where I couldn't force myself to quit playing, it was that good. I remember partying for 5-6 hours only to realize it when the party stopped and I looked at the clock.

I really enjoyed FFXI too, but if we're being fair and comparing the 1-10 combat experience of both games, let's be honest, FFXI was less involved. Combat at that point was generally 'engage target>wait for auto attacks to kill it (maybe use the occasional weaponskill every 2-3 fights)>win'. You have nostalgia for the parties, probably because the setup encouraged socialization (most leveling parties involved repetitive actions, rarely any situations that required you to be on your toes); there's no reason you can't have the same social aspects in XIV.

SE completely missed out on the importance of party based gameplay and the need for skilled comrades in encouraging a healthy linkshell. FFXI was such a game where people remembered great players and looked out for them at their next party. With such a fast leveling curve FFXIV effectively castrates this mechanic.

Not sure what you're talking about here - group play, linkshells, etc., are going to be a large part of XIV as well; you're still going to be partying with people as you level, and you're certainly not going to stop doing so for endgame. There are still plenty of classes to level as well.

I don't see anything in FFXIV that can give me that same sense of accomplishment as FFXI when I played my Mithra War/Thf and the Whm cast benediction... I dbl attack Gax (2 crits),  then Provoke, then Keen edge(Crit), and another dbl attack(2 crits). Mob pulls off the Whm nearly killing me before the Pld gets agro back saving the party from a wipe.

There is NOTHING in FFXIV that can equal something like that. The combat mechanics are flat out dull compared to it. Hell they are even dull when compared to WoW. 

I'm not sure how you could know what would and wouldn't give you a sense of accomplishment if you haven't...well...accomplished anything in the game yet. It sounds like you've made up your mind long in advance that nothing is going to compete with XI in your eyes. Very well, but this has more do with you and less to do with the game; many will still find it plenty enjoyable. Moreover, not all enjoyment has to stem from a 'sense of accomplishment'.

The reason FFXI combat felt (to seems extend still feels) much more rewarding and involved is the death penalty. Even now since they have reduced the exp loss it still stings if you die in any end game event because most of the time it means the end for this run. Dying means something in FFXI still to this day.

The only other game that is remotely similar in terms of the death penalty is EvE online. One reason the game feels rewarding and hard.

That's simply not true - at least that's not the reason I found FFXI combat interesting; actually dying several times in a row made me want to quit playing more than it got me involved. I once stayed up all night leveling and realized that I had died enough times to end up with less xp than when I started. When I finally got that next level, I thought "thank God, now please don't let me die anymore", and constant nervousness about possibly dying, no rewarding feeling. I don't understand this viewpoint at all.

This is even truer for FFXI when you could die just because you pulled a mob solo and got unlucky with auto-attack hits, or miscalculated that you could solo something that cons as 'decent challenge', or - if grouping - when you get a bad pull, or people trained mobs to the zone and your party was nearby to pick up collateral aggro, or you ran from any of the above and the mob followed you all the way to the zone border, and the server couldn't load your zone transition fast enough, so the mob would still kill you anyway, etc. "Yay, now I get to spend a bunch of time getting all that xp back - I bet I'll feel like I accomplished something afterward, and not like I'm wasting my time." Yeah, no.

I suspect everyone taking this viewpoint felt they had an overall rewarding experience with FFXI or some other game, but they, in retrospect, just arbitrarily selected one incidental feature of such games and decided that that's where the fun came from...the harsh death penalty thing is a nice theory, but if it holds at all, it definitely doesn't hold for everyone.

The trouble with these well crafted discussions is, the answer isn't in what people are telling you, it's what people aren't telling you.

 

Saying "combat is boring".

Moving is boring. All I ever do is use my WASD keys and maybe my space bar.

 

What is it people are looking for in video game combat? Why is it "boring"?

 

The first time you kill Garuda, it will be exciting. The 300th time? Not so much.

We have been having 2 day CBT's. You got to level 35 in 2 days. Tells me you are playing the ever loving shit out of the game.

I'm glad that I enjoy the combat right out of the gate. I level so slow in these games that I could not imagine waiting until 50 for combat to get better.

Same here.

I suck at leveling. I have yet to break 15. I'm having fun though.

Log in to multiple characters, run around, dig some ore, take a few quests, explore, get an idea how to make something, just play. I level by accident.

Why is a 2.5 second global cooldown reasonable?? Actual question and serious inquiry.

One ten thousand

Two Ten thousand

Five.

 

2.5 seconds. It isn't really an issue. The trouble is, I think Auto Attack starts at 12 seconds or something. That's a bit foolish.

From someone that's never played the game, 2.5 seconds seems extremely long.  Is there some other mechanic in place that players are supposed to do in that 2.5 second time frame?  SWTOR's 1.5 second gcd felt like forever and a day.  Don't most MMOs have a 0.5 gcd?

Well on the bright side when you hit 20, you can shift the focus from grinding levels to farming grand company seals and ranks. Makes leveling seem to go quicker.

Combat wont change at higher levels. I have no idea what they were thinking when they made the combat system in this game.

"WoW: Hey, playa, wait 1.5 seconds."

Player: "Okay!"

FFXIV: "Would you mind waiting another second?"

Player: "WHAAAAT?!"

 

Now my serious response:

Why is it *not* reasonable?

I thought the graphics and the dialog were truly outstanding.They were in sharp to the fighting animation and graphics which IMO were surprisingly poor.Talk about immersion killing..who wants to see flashes and damage numbers coming off targets in combat....and their's no way to turn the damage numbers off.
