I recently canceled my WoW subscription (usually do so in the months between expansions) and I'm considering a try at FFXIV. I love the environment and the graphic style but the one thing that has me worried are the quests. If I had to rate the various MMOs I have played based on their questing strength it would be (WoW:MoP>GW2>WoW:Vanilla>Rift).
And Rift is the reason I'm worried about new MMOs. The game looks great but when I start reading quest dialogue I can barely remember what they just said. All the quest text just starts to sound the same after awhile. I know that most MMOs will have this problem to some degree. WoW seems to have done better in it's quest variety with the last few expansions. Maybe it's the story within each zone that helps make quests more than just kill 10 of monster "X" and WoW's story has been more cohesive and engaging than most.
So, my question is, how are the quests/story arcs in FFXIV compared to other games?
Thanks (and this thread is not meant to bash on game over another)
