Had to use the play on words. Let me set the mood first...I played endgame FFXI with a passion 3x jobs to 75 took down all the nasties and what not, but I also played WoW to the endgame runs and took down most of the nasties without the same passion as FFXI. To quote the great Enigo Montoya, "Let me splain, no let me sum up..." WoW was/is too freaking easy which led to less of a movement to find the best players on the server that were required to hunt the nasties. FFXI was difficult to say the least. Money issues, countercamping NMs HNMs, god pop items, CoP missions, you name it...I loved it. I was known for being good at my job in the FFXI, known for having the best gear, our LS was contacted by other LSs to help with strategy on things. You could stand out in FFXI but not in WoW. I never made the friends in WoW I made in FFXI and never was recognized for accomplishments in WoW. It felt good that people would ask me in FFXI seconds after I signed on to join their parties because I did a good job and was almost funny sometimes.
There is a point for discussion --- Will FFXIV have that easy "WoW factor" or still have an edge like FFXI that can make for real heroes and celebrities in game?
My desire is to keep it were only the most dedicated players will get the best stuff, but back off from the FFXI intensity just a little.
