FF 14 has been very well received by those of us playing it, and I think it's time for a spin-off thread, since it mostly started in slack.

I think there are 8-9 of us playing right now. Crossplay between PS4/PC, and it's well-optimized so it shouldn't be hard to run on PC.

Fun game, way deeper than you'd expect, full of goofy mounts and pets to run around with and dress up and dungeons. We are saving to buy property and build a house.

We play on the Goblin server (NA/Aether cluster), which is a "preferred" server, meaning it has double xp to help convince people to move from congested servers, so the time commitment isn't a big deal and you can pretty much play as casually as you want w/ the way the mechanics work.

Our Free Company is here: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone ... 23/member/

we also have players across a few timezones.

This is the new FF 14 thread.

Expansions are not necessary, as you need to clear the main quest line from the original to get to that stuff and none of us have gotten that far yet.

At least on PS4 you can download the game as a free trial and the limit is a level (20 I think) not any amount of time. It could be 30

yeah keeping up isnt really necessary because of level syncing for dungeons and the quality of the community (ive done almost all my dungeons with 100% pub groups and have only had one where ppl bailed)

im always done to do whatever lower level stuff or go gathering together or w/e

That's the edition most of us bought btw

It has all the content of vanilla plus all of the patches up to the expansions, which make up almost as much content as the base game

So it's not some handicapped bullshit, and the game is 0% pay to win

2 things:

1) the game adjusts levels so you can play with lower level people. your experience is then adjusted for the level you actually are.

2) our server gives 2x xp, plus you get a ring when you get your first job to level 15 (which takes maybe 30-60 minutes) that further increases your xp gains when you're under level 30 by 30%

apart from bruce helping me with a dungeon run i've not really done much with hpn people. but like pootis said the pub people are very nice.


my best experience with the game was a couple of nights ago. i ran a level 35 dungeon and it seems like they ramp up the dungeon difficulty at this point. before all my groups easily finished the dungeon without anyone even close to dying. this time my group wiped lots of times and the only person who had any experience was the tank. he ended up being very polite and helpful and pointing out the boss mechanics and how we could better play our classes. at this point i'm a healer and doing a pretty shitty job but he pointed me in the right direction and recommended what spells i should be using. so we got to the final boss and wiped about 5 more times before finally beating him:) it was great.

yeah im pc but i played up until like level 40 with a controller

you can still set it up nice with a controller but i got like four actionbars i use so i switched to m/k

but obv that ps4 community is significant so the game does indeed play very well w/ one
