The story isn't really that deep.  It's mostly bad guys being bad guys, with them throwing in random moments of "oh we aren't bad guys, we just oppose all life as you know it and enjoy exploiting stupid people." If we had the power to, I'd go blow up the chosen crystal or do something else interesting.  Anything to get off the railroad that is the end game loot grind or possibly generate some kind of interesting event to get involved in.

Well I did say in my opinion. Also you can simplify any story by saying its the same old good vs evil thing.

Yeah I am probably over simplifying it.  I think the reason I went that route in the discussion is because the story is fairly generic, so it comes off as being simple.  Right now I'm at my limit on playing the game since it feels like patch 2.2 was a complete bomb of incompetence from the development team.  If they want to keep people playing the game, they really can't afford to do lockouts on wings of content like they are with Bahamuts coil and the other fights.  Not to mention the grinder they've turned end game into with Atma and somehow, even the easter event.  I've never wanted to skip a seasonal event before until I got to see how they implemented this one.

I had hopes for this game as much as anyone else who played the Beta 3 and 4, but unless the developers actually provide something interesting beyond the main story stuff and the Hildabrande quests this is going to start turning into another Tortanic. 

Well for me its the way and how well the story is written. I can understand your frustration with the road blocks to content and the grind for atma. However I like what its done for the open world content, it's made it worth playing again that and challenge logs. Its also given me a long term goal and with all the new gil I'm making I have hope for housing now. Two words "Seals" and "Potash". :)

Yeah, among the good that came with the patch was the new dungeons and the random distribution of the level 70 item materials.   Also if someone isn't tired of them yet, their are new beastman dailies to grind out.  I just wish they would put something worthwhile at the end of the month long journey to max reputation.  120k for a new mount just isn't worth it.
