OP  4/12/14 8:44:12 AM#1


 Heys guys,


   I am a fan of   FF games, but Hate FF XI    , so i didn´t a try on FFXIV: ARR yet . I was waiting for TESO but after a friend get bored in only two days i think that´s better use the money to finally try the ARR now.

   I would like to ask the vets if the game is bored like FFXI and has the same issues ( cannot play without party, hardest game to find party, die with one hit after lv14 if not in party , etc ) or is really a new game that can be played in party and solo well.


   Thanks in advance

To answer your question yes you can solo and its easy to party for dungeons via duty finder.

It's has all the "conveniences" of a Modern MMORPG. Duty Finder, quick solo leveling, nerfs to content shortly after release, grind easy dungeons for good gear, etc. 


Not a terrible game, just not very good either.

The game is very solo friendly there's parts in the story where you have to do a few dungeons to progress through the story. If  you like the standard themeparks then it's a good game, this game is very well done and looks great. The class system is like FFXI where one charachter can be all classes/jobs.

I am having trouble with the link ATM, which shouldn't be an issue since you found your way here, but if you go to, they have FF XIV for $15 digital download. :)

Look in Digital Games. :), or $20, plus $5 shipping,  and they will send you the CD.


Think I might give it a go myself.

Yes the progression up to level 50 is very easy and solo friendly(especially in the first class/playthrough).

So party is not required but if you like leveling up through dungeons, it's very easy to find a group through the duty finder(group finder) and the game has a lot of dungeons along the progression to endgame.

So yes, if those are the worries that are keeping you from trying the game, definitely give it a shot

It's the same as comparing Warcraft 3 to World of Warcraft.

FF:ARR FATE grinding: People not having fun by doing something not actually intended to get to a point that doesn't really matter as fast as possible. Just so they can do the same thing over and over again to gain a piece of virtual loot.
