It was still sort of grindy in 1.0, but I think it was less obvious until Yoshida started taking over. Well, except for the sporadic EXP gain thing, which was sort of weird, but I only got to play a couple months back toward the end of the year it released, then picked it up again in 2.0 when it went ARR and began the long, fast decline into grinding the same dungeons and raids over and over while all the players tended to be hostile toward you while you were doing them.


It was sorta grindy, but for some reason, exp parties were still rather fun at launch 1.0. I even mained Archer the first time and I didn't mind the sporadic exp thing, though I found it really strange. Massive leve parties were a blast when they upped the bonus for leve sharing, and Coerthas raptor parties post 40 allowed me to meet many awesome people.

Heh, I even remember one time when a bunch of friends from the linkshell I lead formed a party when all of our names started with A, we added three people, and they started asking us if it was a linkshell for A people. I hardly ever got to have experiences like that in 2.0, prolly part of the reason why I dont think too highly of it, it basically took the frontiersman elements out of the game, even when it was still freshly launched, by making everything gear and exp worthy instanced, instead of a proper balance.


That's why I am sort of seething with rage at Yoshida and everyone saying he "saved" Final Fantasy XIV. Parties in ARR just weren't enjoyable overall. You had to run dungeons basically to do anything, including the crafting options, even with what field gathering there was. Both DoH and DoL players were kind of made to feel like they were doing it wrong, and that they just weren't worth as much as people playing the Real Game of combat and EXTREME dungeon grinding. Plus, Yoshida decided people just wouldn't understand, or would find too complex, things like an elemental wheel. It was basically four or eight people flailing about, mashing as many buttons as possible, while trying to avoid circles on the ground (which did not keep up with latency).

Sorry, I'm playing a pretty cool one piece browser game called Ultimate War. It's very interesting, too! You can have a try: http://op.gogames.me/

Nobody plays FF14. Especially people who play on the NA Lamia server. They don't exist at all.

I play AST/WHM on Behemoth, Primal DC.

Surprised to see most people here aren't on Balmung. Either way, I'm looking forward to Stormblood as everything has slowed down now that people are through with Creator and Diadem took days to get bored of (when not drunk).

I play in Chaos, Cerberus server. I recently started playing, late December last year. I main AST (I have my WHM to 60), planning to level my SCH to 60 after I get my AST to 60. I haven't been playing lately as I am playing NieR and Horizon. P5 is upcoming too. Waiting for Stormblood, I can't wait!!! I play PS4 btw but that doesn't matter anyways as it's cross-platform.

I'm called Iris Flora btw :3 drop me a message here if you want to be play with me. I only have few friends in game and we all have varied play times and timezones. I would be nice to play with someone of a similar timezone.

Yeah, I have a character on Gilgamesh. I got kind of bored of it though and let my sub expire. I'll probably re-sub once Stormblood comes out.

I've been a WHM main since I started playing years ago, on Midgardsormr. Currently not subbed. Beat Alexander too fast and my group is all on break now since there's nothing else to do.
