If you’ve finished the current story and are tired of the dungeon grind, waiting seems long. Luckily Victor’s got your back with a short wish list of things to come for future content.

    I'm behind as well as far as content goes and I like it that way.  I have hardly any waits for dungeons and I get to take my time and take all the lore in at my pace.  I have yet to get my current class to 50, but I'm close.

    Still on my way to lvl 60 with my warrior, but I got my culinarian to max level this week. Only blasted a few 100k gils on the way...but since crafting in FF14 is very neatly done, i really enjoyed that.

    Hodor!

    I still haven't got through the main quest! I am still somewhere around 2.3 - 2.4 so I can't even try Heavensward or one of the new classes (Dark Knight!!!!). 

    Sadly I have been splitting my limited play time (5 hours or so a week) on both levelling up a new toon in ESO and finishing off the FFXIV storyline so my progress is very slow :( Now I am trying skyforge so I probably won't get to heavensward soon :(

    I've unfortunately seen the reasons for LOLMCH first hand. It seems at level 30-50 most of the players leveling MCH seem to love spamming the knockback skill, leading to wipes and general annoyance for tanks and melee dps and healers. It hurts the class as a whole because it causes a stigma that everyone who plays the class is terrible. While that isn't true, it has become a generalization of all MCH in the game. :/

    I've been catching up with the story, finally. I'm a subscriber since launch, but I take it easy. In the last 2 weeks I've been doing the story from 2.1. I'm now at half of 2.4! It's fun, it's great. There's so much to do. I still have lots of stuff to unlock...

    Playing on Odin (EU), I'm a tank, usually don't have troubles with queues, but it depends on the hour of the day. In general, the game is quite healthy and active.

    I'm looking forward to new content in 3.1 since I'm not doing Savage raiding, so my playtime is spent between leveling other jobs and doing the other various daily/weekly things.

    It sounds like we might get access to the Vanu Vanu beast tribe quests in 3.1 since Yoshi-P said they were going to make their dance available to players then.  I also hope we get to see some more Hildibrand silliness.

    More than anything, I want to see how they continue to develop the main story, especially in the Azys Lla area.  I don't want to say much since there are comments here from folks still working on the story, but once you get there the scale and design of the place will blow you away.  It's a shame that right now there isn't much content to do there.

    I'm personally wanting crafting to be a bit more viable and in the 50-60 range before in high end 60 gear there to be a LOT less RNG aspect where to get anywhere one must take a LOT of serious risks and simply hope for the best. How would adventurers like it if they only had the energy to kill half a solo monster with their basic skills and the rest was needed to be done with skills with 40 and 50% success chance...Its also ridiculous that old lvl 50 1 star craft/gather accessories max melded are better then then HQ lvl 59ish stuff unless you spent a fortune max melding that also which doesn't make any real difference.

     

    However I'm not holding my breath. FF has a great craft system designed for the most part just lacking much use for most.

    I really wish they would think about the housing situation, there are no more plots left and anyone not in a Free Company or any newly formed FC's will not get the benefit of gardening or chocobo stables. For me this is a huge problem as a mostly solo/slow player. Not that gardening as it is is a huge lost, but still. 

    Chocobo stables and gardens need to be made public and I wished Inn rooms were personal rooms. :/
