I haven't really been paying attention to the game until basically a week ago, haven't really heard of it and I never played the old FF MMO games. I looked at the preorder, and the game is only $30 for Windows? That got me interested, since I am used to $60 clients. Have to ask if that includes a sub? Also, why a $10 difference between the Windows and PS3 version? I do have a PS3 but I can as well get it cheaper, lol
But anyway, I am thinking I may want to grab it when it releases or perhaps a bit later, but considering that I probably won't get into the next beta and I probably don't want to, I don't really know much about the game so I would want to ask a few things, which may determine how eager I would be to get the game:
From what I understand, this is a fairly classic-style themepark game with Trinity, dungeon finder, raids, etc. How similar it is to Rift? I quite liked Rift before it went free-to-play and I wouldn't mind getting into another game like that early on. Are the dungeons/raids well designed? Is there any depth to the level progression system? How fast is the leveling and is there more to the world than mobs and quests? Does the game have any extra stuff/secrets/collectibles/rare mobs/invasions/etc.? How solo or group heavy is the game?
I've got the impression that classes have strict roles, i.e., any given class is only a healer or only a tank, and so on, I am not sure if this is correct. Also, there seem to be specialized roles for crafting-only characters? Can you craft on a combat character? How does this work? Can I freely make alts in this game?
