My boner was knocked off balance by this. The WOW TBC Gold chase is everywhere for seemingly random reasons. Tele here, one line of textand then come back to where were. Repeat for 35 levels. It’s difficult for people to buy due to the bad combat. Take this slop and clean the fighting, and you have an absolute wow-factor.
The funniest thing is that they have tidied it up , they’ve removed a lot of the base game sludge. I personally don’t mind playing the game in any way and have played quite a bit, but I just don’t have time to go on raids with friends anymore.
Teleporting around the map was probably more time-consuming than combat between 1-50. While the story may not be all that bad but when all you’re doing is clicking the quest’s destination and then pressing teleport why bother. In older wow there were certainly some quests that took you around the map, but can you imagine the main story of wow sending players from strangle to the south shore on every quest for 50 levels? There are two buttons in the game that can begin a massive GCD once you are finally in combat.
Both have their flaws, I’m sure. FF14 is more story-driven, which means that the 1-50 grind could be difficult to grasp (although it is possible to purchase levels and other items, just like WoW). It was a tedious task to clean out the core games. The one factor that helped me get through it was that so many said it would improve. WoW didn’t really need to do this and was able to make their vanilla game more enjoyable since the groundwork for the story was already laid in the Warcraft series. And a missing vanilla story doesn’t really amount to anything when you consider the sequel.
It didn’t just used to be a couple of buttons that had lengthy GCDs. However, much as WoW did over time, FF14 was required to improve its fundamental gameplay in order to have something new to discover every couple of levels. Shit, my white mage holds about 5-6 bars outfitted with 90% of the shit on. Their level squashes don’t work like WoW’s earlier ones. This means they must use the same skills while leveling up. This isn’t a major issue. PVP is my one real major issue. It’s a mess that’s beyond my understanding.
It’s important for people to know that they’re two separate games that accomplish different things effectively. I’m a fan of FF14 in the long run because the community is safer, the story is much better, and it’s great fun once start to explore the expansions. JRPGs have always been a top choice for me and this one hits the mark so hard that I’m kicking myself for not getting into it sooner. WoW’s growth was remarkably rapid from its initial release in the last few years. It’s very easy to learn and play and will always strike all nostalgic buttons for me, however the story can be a bit snarky and I’m in need of a bit more than 10+ years old graphics. And that’s the obvious, boring, time-gating.
It’s a start instead of 10-minute flight paths. It’s true that cheap WOW Burning Crusade Classic Gold “Pray Come to the Waking Sands” can cause me to experience some gaming-related PTSD from a while ago.
