Gameplay of FF XIV
We are more than certain, that the thing that interests you the most is the gameplay of FF XIV. It a MMORPG game with strong jRPG elements. In other words you are going to do a lot of quests, explore the entire big world, make friends with other players, join guilds, participate in raids etc. In other words you are going to do everything you might know from typical MMORPG games. However, what about jRPG elements you might ask? We can assure you that authors of the game did not forget about the roots of the genre.
There are many elements you might know not only from the Final Fantasy series but also from other jRPG (like Chrono Trigger, Breath of Fire, Grandia or Legends of Mana). For example in Final Fantasy XIV you will be able to gain access to the airship (which is a mandatory element for most of jRPG games). Furthermore, in battles you can use powerful limit breaks. For those of you who are not familiar with jRPG’s, limit breaks are powerful abilities which can be used only, when a special gauge is filled. Each class and job has a different limit break.
After you gain 30th level you can start a quest in which you have to obtain a soul crystal. Different soul crystals unlocks various jobs. These jobs are as following: paladin, dragoon, monk, bard, warrior, white mage, black mage, summoner, scholar, ninja, machinist, dark knight, astrologian, samurai, and the red mage. Fans of the series should be familiar with most of these jobs. The rest of you are going to have so much fun, experimenting with different classes and jobs. If I might be honest with you, I am still waiting for the implementation of the Blue Mage.
Plot and Characters
Plot and characters are also quite developed in Final Fantasy XIV. Starting with the plot you are one of a few heroes, who were selected to save the continent known as Eorzea which is located in the fantasy world, Hydaelyn. The entire world is currently trying to rebuild itself after the catastrophe which happened when someone was reckless enough, to summon king of all primals (powerful, magical summons) the Dreadwyrm Bahamuth.Eorzea is still severely weakened by these events and there are many factions, which are going to try to use this for their own advantage and attack Eorzea. Mainly, the Garlean Empire. You need to protect Eorzea but soon you are going to realize, that Garlen Empire is not the biggest of your problems.
Powerful weapons like Omega Weapon and Ultima Weapon are going to attack your beloved Eorzea. Do you think that you stand a chance against such enemies? Alone maybe not, but luckily for you, there are many people who are going to help you in your quest. For example, Papalymo a powerful sage of Lalafell race. His abilities in thaumaturgy are going to help you immensely. Then, there is Y’Shtola a priest from the Miqo’te tribe. She is a really interesting character with animal ears and tail. As you can see, you are going to meet many, interesting people.
