    One the biggest features I enjoy is standing around simulator ;) Waiting for instances to work. In all seriousness did they fix all the server issues?

    Role Skills sounds like a great option to the old problems may have to jump back and and try out some of the new changes, when I played a while back there was also a housing shortage issue,did that get fixed or am I thinking of another game?

    "Weather it’s the way thunderstorms sweep into valleys...."

    When spellcheck tells you that you are good to go because you spelled the wrong word the right way. ;)

    Just teasing Bill! Happens to me all the time lol.

    Going to jump into this expansion as soon as I hear all the bugs are ironed out. Jump potions....here I come!

    New housing zone was added, plus apartments in each housing area if an actual house is too pricey for you, I opted for an apartment and I'm happy with it.

    A friend bought the base game and 2 days later has yet to be able to create a character on Cactuar. She is going to try the game out on a different server, but she keeps trying to create on Cactuar at different times and has not been able to get it done yet.

    Small group of us (6) are playing on the same server Bill. If you (or anyone else reading from Midgardsomr) are ever looking for some folks to play with let me know and I'll send you the details

    Basically More of the Same. Not a bad thing necessarily, but that's what it is.

    New classes are always a plus though so there's that.

    Less dungeons this expansion which I kind of blame the itemization of the game for them pretty much being DoA or seal fodder. I'll be honest, this "No player left behind" act that devs/publishers adopt to make games more accessible to all players just ultimately kills the game. People come back, get gear handed to them so they can join current events, do said events for 1-2 weeks, then get bored and stop playing again until next update. Same thing over and over. Personally, I can't even enjoy the leveling of this game anymore since I know PotD will come out in a patch or 2, which rewards you with end game weapons (which are the most annoying things to get in the game) for just leveling.

    "People might want more tanks and healers, but adding these two actually levels things across the game in terms of what’s available."


    Uh what?

    There is 9 dps jobs and 3 tank jobs and 3 healer jobs. There is nothing even close to even anywhere about that. DPS ques take upwards of 45 to 1 hour and tank ques pop instantly while healer ques pop in a minute or 2.

    None of that is even getting into the classes before jobs where there is only 2 tanks, 6 dps, and 1 healer.

    Must say Im lvl 68 atm and I like the dungeons and new trails. One boss is without fighting that was refreshing. Swimming underwater on mount is relaxing. Wiped on trail nobody knew what to do in df and we all were like.. Lets figure it out ourself 

    And the zones looks beautiful!
