    All I know is I want to be a healer in this game. Why are all the games I am really interested in so far away from being released? Maybe I will get into beta. Highly doubt it, I'm not lucky at all.

    FF has done nothing but go downhill in recent days, especially the single player games so I didn't even check FFIV out before this reborn stuff happened. It looks pretty lame, the global cooldown is like a year long, doing quests seems to be you just talk to a guy and teleport to location, kill monsters, collect reward. Where is the adventure in that?

    How instance based is the game? Any footage I've seen is really closed up, I don't like that. Is the combat the same as in those challenge missions or w/e they are? Just standing around in a tight area with a boss and people whacking away? Also can you even move around? I'm pretty picky after GW2 combat.

    If your expecting either FF online game to be anything like GW2 you will be sorely disappointed. FF11 and FF14 are FF online games, they have some of the single player game characteristics and the systems are completely different than that of games like WoW and GW2. So if your GW2 or bust then dont waste your time, you will not like the game even after ARR.

    The information in the footage from Alpha they have released does not do the game justice, it was mearly a teaser to the current players who didnt get alpha invites.
    GCDs will reduce alot as you level up, and yeah some attacks is position based. So moving is needed, you can move with any ability I have tried.
    The combo system for combat will also increase dmg on the next attack, and not to mention the Limit Break system while in Party and raids. Doing Fine Play will make the Limit Break Gauge fill up faster. Fine Play is healing at the right time, shield block properly etc.

    As for quests, you mount to the place. Or use Anima to teleport to a Camp that is in the nearby area. I have also played GW2 and it was not as fun for me personally.
    There will be many FATE events in game too. Full Active Time Event which are openworld events.

    Adding a link that has just a few bits of informations that is coming. There will be more when they reveal it to us

    I like the sound of the player housing.

    chocobo fighting by your side sound cool also looking forward to the Housing system.

  8. #468
    Really hoping to get into beta next month so i can give this game a proper go. A lot of the features sound very appealing, especialy housing, can't believe it isn't implemented into the big new MMOs more often.

    I played GW2 and i thought it sucked, FFXIV is going to be way better then GW2 in PVE

    I hate to ask, but I've been looking for the past 6 hours, and all the cpu benchmarks I see for FFXIV are all from 2010. Does anyone know if this game benefits greatly more from multithreading and 5+ cores? Or is it really just 4 cores and single threading; I know the game can delegate processes to multiple cores, but does it help at all?

    Well, without trying to spark heated fanboy discussion, what I'm basically asking is FX-8300 vs i5-3570k for FFXIV. Or are they both overkill? If yes, how is the FX-6300?

    You should be fine with a FX-6300. When it first launched I only had problems because my computer was old. With new hardware, even the 6970m in my laptop with an I5 handled it no problem.

    Thanks! I try not to buy overkill so I can save the money and upgrade in the future.

    Nothing major update, but I feel this will be pretty cool to have Day/Night cycles with different Moon phases

    I think they will. If you look at the pictures in that blog I linked, it says:

    Ah, but will facing north-by-northeast at 2:45 a.m. while the moon is a waning crescent result in a 27% increase in your chances to synthesize HQ mythril ingots!? That is real the question!

    Sounds too much to be just a tease. Moonphases in 1.0 did affect Synthesizes if I remember correctly

    It might also just be a throwback joke (it is a good one). Especially in regards to FFXI. IIRC the moonphases/direction/etc. thing for either XI or XIV has simply never been denied or confirmed by SE, so people just took it as truth (just in case) and ran with it...hard.

    I may be wrong, though; it's been a while since I read much about it.

    If this game turns out to be as good as the hype, this will be the only subscription based MMO I would be willing to pay for. I hate to buy into the hype, but my friends who have actually played it already tell me it's great.

    I got the chance to play a bit before they closed the servers. Just the patches leading up to that change were MILES beyond what it launched with. From the videos and notes I can personally tell that the game will be good, how good is still an unknow as we can't really compair an Alpha/beta version of something to a... more pollished game like wow/rift/aion (meh, needed a third to round out the options).
