Just wanted to ask FF XI fans a simple question;
FF XIV will soon be "reborn", however, while I did all the Final Fantasy games, I never experienced a Final Fantasy MMO yet (closest thing to it was...was FF12, haha ) so my question is: do you think I should wait for FF14 to relaunch, do you think it's a bad idea to buy FF11 now? Maybe I should use this time to discover FF11? It has a "scenario", main "campaign", right?
Thanks in advance for your honest answers
PS: I play solo a lot because of my work hours and current situation, is this the kind of game where you have to dedicate 5 hours in a group every evening?
It's solo friendly, but really boring without friends.
Pretty much this. You can solo now by using fields of valor and I think they raised the gained exp since I left. However, the strong and fun part of the game was always finding a party for good teamwork. Lastly, even if you solo you should either use guides for zones or get a mentor to show you around else you will be completely clueless of where to go.
You can't get higher than level 50 solo. At 50 your XP is capped until you do an annoying quest that will require the help of much much higher levels. A "level limit break" quest is needed to progress from 50-55, 60-65, 70-75 etc.
If you don't have high level friends, don't bother. The game is way too punishing for new players this late in it's life.
