UI navigation in FFXIV: ARR - PC build?

NeutronicsNeutronics SingaporePosts: 5Member

Like many, many others, I got the failed version of FFXIV in 2010.  Of the terrible experience I remembered from that thing, is the terrible UI, designed for console gameplay, instead of a true keyboard-mouse PC platform.  The navigation menu was simply atrocious for me.  I do not play platform games, btw.


So, since ARR is also gonna launch with PS3 crossplatform, can beta testers share their experience with playing on the PC, specifically if the UI feels unoptimised for keyboard and mouse?

    It's much better than before. Easy to use, and easy to rebind. I would definitely say it's optimized for the PC.

    I also played version 1.0 and the UI was horrible. I am pleased to say that the UI on both the controller and keyboard and mouse is top notch now.

    UI is amazing.  Menu's can be confusing at first and the map is different that what we're used to but it's all very usable once you wrap your head around it.

    The UI is also 100% customizable, plus the basic layout is nice, very well placed.

    My only complaint is the map.  The map still needs work.  However, after you use it for a little while and get used to it, it'll suffice.

    whith the map, there gona be adding some kind of quest symbol on the edges of the map if the quest isn't on your current map. That way we'll beable to see which way to head to get to the quest. They adding that for phase 4.


    edit: there also adding to beable to scale the UI, between 3 different sizes, small, medium, and large

    Keyboard and Mouse is great! but playing with controller just wasnt for me. Too much work trying to go into certain features. Probably have to set keybinds to make it better but didnt feel like it.
