OP  10/17/13 3:56:35 PM#1

The latest Letter from the Producer has been posted on the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn site. In the letter, plans for the first major patch are detailed including the incoming "salon", daily quests, solo-able content and much more.

Speaking of end game, I'd like to take a moment to address our players who have completed the main scenario, and are now working to complete relic quests and fight against the hard-mode primals. We realize how difficult it's been to acquire tomestones and have taken measures to alleviate this problem. Although we had a few setbacks necessitating an extension of the planned maintenance on October 15, as well as a subsequent emergency maintenance, we've added additional instance servers for Amdapor Keep as well as the Wanderer's Palace. We've also increased the number of tomestones obtainable in these dungeons, and made adjustments to gil received from within. Patch 2.1 will introduce even more ways to accumulate tomes, so please bear with us.

End game players have also encountered problems with the fifth turn of the Binding Coil of Bahamut. This issue was to be addressed with the patch on October 15, but unfortunately we've confirmed that the problem still persists. Please rest assured we are working diligently to resolve this issue so that players can resume play in this instance as soon as possible.

Read the rest on the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn forum.

Dailies? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I don't mind a few here & there (like the GC dailies for emblems), but please don't turn this into another daily quest grinder game like WoW!

Dang that is a fairly large patch. Like a mini expansion by today's standards.

Then it will turn into people complaining that there are too many dailies and still not enough content...vicious cycle

Quest are something that most newer MMOs, esp. Asian ones, seem to get wrong.

If you got just enough quests in your game to get you to max level, you need to double or triple that. Even more so for FF14 because of all the classes/jobs.

Even in vanilla WoW you could level 1-60 touching the other continent, made leveling alts (or jobs in FF14 case) way more tolerable.

Yes actually if you ever played their other final fantasy mmo the majority of content was thru content updates like this(patch) and of course a few major expansions....but alot of mmos are moving towards larger updates like this as the player base seems to eat thru it fairly quickly.

Well that's good news for me hehe. At the rate I'm going through content, I will never catch up. What a good feeling that is!

Sounds good, but I continue to wonder why there is so much focus on "solo" content in an MMO. I don't mind "soloable", meaning that it's content that *can be* solo'd if you want to, what I really don't like is content that *forces* you to enter solo. My wife and I play co-op every night and it's a constant source of frustration for us to have to split up, ungroupl and do "solo" instances by ourselves sitting next to each other. And it seems totally unnecessary.

Thank you Dev.’s for your continuing work.... 

Dailies are ok but hopefully will not be the staple of things to come.. I agree with more quests.. side quests…. This would certainly lessen the feel of the repeating madness you see in most of the end game content these days.. some love for the casual players would be greatly appreciated as well.. the hardcore player, rushing for top gear and end game raids to get to a point where all there is to do is repeat and repeat, do not support MMO’s in the long term as much as the casual player…  Making a balance between the two playing styles can be difficult for a developer… Hoping to see improvements is SQ’s balancing act…

And yet, their servers only poll for your character's location every 300ms, meaning after you acknowledge a boss maneuver, press the key to react, and the action being recognized by the server, it's too late and doesn't matter where you are on your screen. The game says you didn't dodge in time and your party wipes. Seriously, it's like a monkey architected their network engine.

This has been confirmed by Yoshi with no plans to resolve. These little design choices are sprinkled throughout the game and will frustrate you to no end. The launch debacle was only the tip of the iceberg.

They can easily avoid this, by allowing all side quests to be repeatable by each profession.

I never understood why this wasn't possible in the first Place.

Each profession you try to Level is in essence basically your ALT. Just that it's all tied to the same character. Like in TSW for example, but at least in that game all missions are pretty much repeatable With daily cooldowns.

It's also much better for the community as a Whole, as it would mean that players will continue to Level up other professions via quests in low Level zones and so New players will have always People to help them out and play With.

I did eventually decide to sub for another month. I'll give it another couple of months as I've done with other games.

The launch wasn't right. SE admitted they completely underestimated the user initial numbers. But it's gone now.

What hasn't gone as you say is this delayed action, and can it be frustrating at times!. Ok, you get used to it by trying to move out of the aoe as soon as you see it. Most of the time you get it right, but when you still get hit after your character has moved way out of the area, that' just bad.

And you are absolutely right - this needs fixing - asap.

This!

i've been saying this from the start.

They claim u can play all classes on 1 character, well they should've made every quest repeatable on a daily basis, lvling a new job/class atm is just... way to boring and grindy

The inverse of this is that I hate that you are forced to group for a dungeon just to advance your main storyline. Let me run through the dungeons when I want not be forced to ask guildies for help or be forced into a PUG. I guess the good thing about that is that those in a PUG might be in the same boat.

You guys catch the comment at the end of the letter, regarding his live podcasts? The key phrase I read was "In the MONTHS leading up to release"...

 

it'll be awhile, folks. Looks cool, though.

Hmm, so choose to do the dungeon when you want to and then continue with the story. I don't see the issue here....oh ya..."I want it now now now.../flails fists against the ground wildly.

The problem is that there are so many people who just sit there adn run through the content all day long instead of enjoying the adventure. Stopping to take in the scenery and make friends and socialize. They just sit there and power through the game and when they're done they just complain all day.

 

MMOs should put in more incentives for people to team up and talk to each other. Like maybe a social stat that benifits the player somehow. Like the more you team up, the happier your character is. The happier your character, the better it fights or something better thought out. All these typical mmo players care about is non-stop killing and getting items and exp. No one plays for the adventure and social aspects anymore. It used to only be a few people that just power through stuff, but now it's like 90% of all MMO players who for some reason think there's golden good times waiting for them once they get the max level or reach the end.

 

News flash. You just rushed through the good times and you reached the end of it. This happens to them yet they keep going to other MMOs doing the EXACT same thing and expecting different results. This is the very definition of insanity
