    At least it seems Square is running an actual Beta for their game. Unlike certain other games in the past year and the future who run monthly 'Beta weekends' which are more preview days since 3 days a month isn't Beta testing. Also why said games are incredibly buggy at release since they only have a very small test group do the actual Beta testing (otherwise known as every high level zone in GW2 for months after release).

    Still curious about this. Did not play 1.0.  I get the whole quest-hub thing and fine with it.  But what ELSE will we be able to do?  Can we fish? Can we craft *useable* weapons/gear?

    Quest hubs only get boring when thats the only thing (system) in the game that progresses you.  We need options.

    Even though I have no intentions of buying this game and wouldnt play it unless its free, I really really REALLY hope it does well and that the rebirth is GOOD.

    Then I can point to this game every time I hear someone tell people to stop complaining about games in beta because its TOO LATE, or that the changes being asked for WONT come. Its time companies start to listen to beta testers again about game design flaws, and missing content like they used to...time to end the cycle of bad MMO releases, time for companies to get back in touch with the playerbase.

    Here is to wishing for a good rebirth!

    There's a lot of content planned.  Best thing to do is look at the PDFs on the Lodestone, even though some of it won't make it right at launch.

    http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/teaser/index.html - the content PDFs are listed here

    Crafting was never useless.  In fact, some of the best gear you could wear was crafted gear with multiple materia melded to it. Said gear outshined even most of the Job Specfic gear.

    Give this one another year and I think they may have something worthwhile.
