FF14 First Impressions.
I've played WoW for over 15 years but given the state of WoW right now and the lack of content, some of my friends have convinced me to try FF14. So I wanted to document my FF14 first impressions, document my journey through FF14 and give my feedback along the way.

Throughout I will be comparing FF14 to WoW and references the differences between the two. Obviously I do have some bias, but I will try and keep an open mind all the way.

I hope to make this series as I play through and discover more about the game, so please let me know in the comments if you're enjoying this and want to see more.

Also if you have any tips for new players in FF14 please let me as I'm probably making a lot of mistakes.

Day 2: brvid.net/video/video-u_ib5YgYmT4.html

1:45 Character Creation and customisation
4:10 Questing and UI
6:40 The Job System

There’s a lot of comments here, thanks so much for all the support! I’m sorry if I don’t get to reply to everyone, I’m trying to get through them when I get chance, if anyone wants to chat directory, I do have a discord linked on my BRvid too :)

One of the best parts is, you only need one character. I just started recently myself.

Pssst you can unlock the Rogue. If you go to Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks. It's in Limsa Lominsa, you can reach it after a MSQ at lvl 15 when you unlock the airships. You also need to have finished the lvl 10 class quest and to have unlocked the Armory System. Find Lonwoerd and take the quest My First Daggers. At lvl 30 you can train up into a Ninja. It's a very high skill DM dealer. I advise to look up the content unlock guide on the wiki. Whoever made it avoided unnecessary spoilers. It's basically a list of quests by lvl and what they unlock. It's good to have it tab-ed and look at it every few levels or so.

All the menu's can be overwhelming indeed in the beginning... but at the same time there is no way to blame the game for not explaining things. You don't have to dig deep into the menu's to find information but they give it to you right away.. allowing you to learn the (basics) of every new aspect of the game you encounter. Overwhelming on a new character yes, but in the long run it's highly benificial for new players.

Steel yourself for the gay stereotyping of your Miqote male species lol. :D Yep those were real people playing the instruments :) bard's get access to them at lvl 30 i think :) It's a fun little thing if you're a musical type of person I agree you with the sensory overload of the menu system. They need to do a rework/simplification of the entire thing IMO - but nothings perfect and like anything you get used to it and figure it out :) - imo make some friends in the game and ask questions - a lot of players do nothing all day but help newer players :) I just helped 3 sprouts through lvl 30ish dungeon for their first time. They listened to my advice and pointers and it went well :)

the basic beginners trap for people coming from other games. wanting to grab all the quests in an area and complete them. I always laugh alittle whenever I see people do this. watched a guy do that for like 3 videos. even he was getting tired of doing them, until someone gave him the heads up, you dont have to do them... ever. unless you are some completetionist who cant move on until all the "!" are no longer on your map. 1) MSQ 2) Job Quest 3) any Blue cross quest to unlock something you are interested in (like new job, dungeon or system) thats all you really need to focus on. the rest of them are completely optional.

Yeah I fell so hard for this trap, coming from wow you need every single quest to level enough - definitely takes some time to get used to haha

Honestly my friends rushing to get to endgame content kinda turns me off playing with them. I like to read and watch cutscenes. I do side stuff and level jobs/alt classes too. I don't like doing unsynced dungeon runs with them where I destroy everything for them in less than 5 minutes.

IIRC the devs have a desire to greatly improve the beginner experience. But because of how we are still tied to alot of the messy code from the original pre A Relm Reborn game there's some things that are not easy for them to do.

I feel about the same as you about the "style". I grew up playing pixel FF and loved those, when they went to 3D I didnt care for it (FF7 and beyond). I think most mounts in FF14 are aweful (to me), the chocobo and moogles I could live without. I can not deny that playing the game has been great though. Im in the 60s now on a few combat jobs and all crafting and gathering. Been taking my time for a few months. Oh a cool thing youll see when you get 50+ is how they do harder versions of a dungeon. It will not just be higher level mobs, it will be different mobs, different bosses and mechanics, basically completely different theme and story for it, think they all have quest or quests related to them as well. A huge breath of fresh air. Most of those are optional, but worth getting into.

Hahaha, your: " I did not think I would spend a whole day doing a gathering skill" Maybe soon many days. Unlike WoW that I played for 5 years, you can gather all the resources you decide to spend the time gathering no wasted effort. In WoW you compete with other for a resource and who grabs it first, or do they camp out so you can rarely get what you need. FF14 besides superior more realistic graphics and deeper gameplay it is a much more friendly community and place to hang out.. and I think the main reason for that is there is no WoW trade chat with nasty abusive trolls. So you always have a nicer time playing FF14. And there really are so *many* ways to play this game. I suspect you may have found a new home. :)

The reason I'm enjoying this game so much right now is because of how different it is from what I'm used to, which is mainly WoW. If I wanted something WoW-like, I'd have stayed with WoW. But I wanted something new and different. And this is it. And the Free Trial system is amazing. I can't imagine Blizzard giving new customers THAT much freedom without at least first collecting mode of payment information as insurance or something. I've know this game by name since 2010 but I never bothered to try it because WoW had covered most of my MMO needs up until a few years ago. Now I wish I had got into this game earlier.

12:08 Yessir, you are the main character. The game just does an excellent job with NPCs and story. You're never at the point where you are the most overpowered character in the story. There are always NPCs on par with you. You are just the only one with the ability to do what you do one the side of the good guys.

Everyone talks about how great the story is in this game. Maybe I am missing something. I have leveled pretty much every class to 30 and have yet to find a story bit that I actually remember. I have read everything. And I even tried to absorb it. But it's like reading the Simirilian, too many names that are hard to pronounce. Nothing memorable, yet, at all. For me the game boils down to : Open journal, select quest, click map. click nearest crystal to port, run to place, do thing, open journal, click map, port to turn in. Repeat till end of time. I don't even have a good sense of how all the areas are connected due to all of the porting around. I like the game. I will probably keep playing it. But only because I am using the free trial. But I am for sure missing out on "the point" I guess because none of it has really grabbed me and pulled me in.

​@Jonny Croxville I recommend just doing the MSQ + Job quests + content opening quests (blue exclamations) up until you reach max level.... also just stick with 1 class until max level too... don't play around with other class/jobs until you have reached level cap and know how to play your main class/job.... (unless you are going to be maining the expansion jobs) don't do any of the normal side quests... just skip them all together and save them for your alt jobs ... (they dont really give you too much reward or xp anyways) it does get more exciting from Heavensward but it may not be your cup of tea... i personally enjoyed the hell out of the story .....
Jonny Croxville
Jonny Croxville 2 dias atrás
@roksoulja84 Fair enough. And I plan to do just that. I'm pretty sure it has been a slog because I am leveling the different classes so I end up pretty much repeating the same stuff. I am totally looking forward to "getting to the good part" if you follow my meaning. :)

I was with you right up until you called the WoW style "gritty" and "dark". WoW is so cartoonish in its style, its the last game i'd think of if I was asked to think of a "gritty" or "dark" game
Medieval Marty
Medieval Marty 16 dias atrás
I suppose its more the asthetic than the art style, its all about a horde of orcs, trolls (evil) fighting humans and the alliance (good). Current expansions is crossing into the underworld and fighting the jailor of death - so it feels very dark and gritty. but I agree the actual art style, is super outdated and almost laughable at this point.

So, if I can do everything with one character, is there any incentive to make alts? I would like to try different races, but I don't know if it's worth the time investment.
Medieval Marty
Medieval Marty 16 dias atrás
Yeah there is 0 reason to make an alt, other than playing on a different server or a different race. But you do get and can buy phantasia, which lets you change your race if you want to try another one. Or you can make an alt if you want to play the story again.

As a RuneScape (3) player I see the job system took RS's revolutionary decision to abolish classes, and improved on it. I like it a lot. It still think my RS3 is better, though; but this game seems very immersive, and an work of art, made carefully, like most anime. Very laudable. YAY: At 11:10 you've mentioned RS. Don't talk of it as if it were in the past, though: it's a modern MMORPG and a strong competitor. Most focus is given on social media to the nostalgic but boring OSRS, but RS3 is actually much better.

it makes me so excited to see YOU excited to play ffxiv. I too came from WoW (but a while ago) and it made me sit back and remember things I took for granted. ARR (lvl 1-50) storyline is actually considered the most 'boring' of all the Main Story Quests (MSQ), but it really sets up the world. The next storyline, Heavensward, is amazing! As for tips: the simple yellow exclamation marks give little xp, so they're better saved for alt classes (though a few DO reward emotes!) Blue(or purple) exclamation marks are more important- they tend to unlock dungeons or other cool things. your MSQ will always be the dramatic exclamation on fire. ALSO!! That tab in the very top left of your screen? It will tell you the current MSQ quest you are on. You can click on it to instantly locate the questgiver for it! (it will also occasionally show you your next Job Quest if it becomes available)

Yo can someone please help me 🙏 I just started playing on console and have a question. Really enjoying the game but targeting is broken. You just randomly cycle through every enemy on screen and the one you want is always last to come up, if you can even see which one you’re targeting. Party targeting works great. I love that up and down on the d pad ONLY targets friendlies/party. But when I hit left or right on the d pad to target an enemy I often end up targeting some out of combat mob in the next zone before I target the combat mob right in front of me. THEN If I’m trying to heal, it will always target an enemy first, if I’m trying to attack it always targets a friend first. It’s so bad. Is it really that poorly designed or am I missing something? If up and down is friendly target only, left and right should be non friendly units only. Pls give me hope.

idk if you know but the spell effects can be disabled or minimized in the setting, and about the slow combat, it's only the gcd, but it won't feel slow later because you have to avoid and do lots of mechanics while having to do the correct rotation. people say it's like a "dance".

I'm glad you have taken an interest in non-combat disciplines because it will provide you the opportunity to do treasure hunts later on since it ties into your thief character. MIN/BTN (and yes FSH) can gather treasure maps once you do a small unlock quest in Limsa Lominsa. ARR peisteskin maps might sell for a lot on your world because completing 20 of them grants the title Treasure Hunter. You don't necessarily need to be a gatherer to do treasure hunts but being able to acquire your own every 18 hours is a nice source of gil.

Good video. I'm going thru the same process too. Took me 2 days creating characters with new "classes" to understand that I didn't need to do that at all. We are used to a system and sometimes we just don't read about the game before. I'm in love with the job system, specially since I NEVER liked having alts. If I knew about it before I'd probably have tried the game already. This will give me the freedom to NEVER have an alt again. It's so good.

totally agree with that. I love how FF14 handles the job system

Game looks terrible, movement clunky, and I really can't understand how can a game like this be played by so many..

Hey man, welcome! Enjoyed seeing your first steps into the world! 😉 Really reminded me of when I took those first steps all those years ago! I would say you should check some UI videos and learn a bit about all the features and setting customization such as targeting, filters etc. to make things more comfortable for you. You should probably dedicate a hot bar or two to your classes/jobs change buttons to make quickly switching between jobs easier. There’s also a special chat network called the “Novice Network” designed where noobs and mentors come together to answer questions and talk about a bunch of other things (acts kind of like a world chat), ask to get invited in the cities. You can also freely visit between servers and I believe data center hopping is on the horizon and a lot of content pools people from multiple worlds so you can play with friends on different servers in all kinds of content. There’s a noob training guild of npcs to teach you about combat roles etc called “Hall of the Novice”. When you get a chance, check out the Gold Saucer for a plethora of mini games (including Chobobo Racing, Triple Triad Cards, Platform Hopping, Rides, Mahjong, Lottery, Lord of Verminion (Pokémon style game), etc). Visit the Housing districts in various cities to see all the beautiful homes and Free Company Halls (Guilds) and neighborhoods people have created (my favorite spot is Mist in Limsa) but there’s so many more (such as Lavender Beds which belongs to Gridania where you started). Just wait til you get your first Chocobo and start flying as well as the other wonderful mounts (you’ll definitely discover your favorites). There’s side quests galore (each one telling you some small and wonderful thing about the lore of the world with characters that you may encounter elsewhere in the story at times who remember you!) Try treasure hunting with a group when you get higher level (one of my favorite things to do!) as well as the Hunt. And when you get high enough level try those side content such as Palace of the Dead and Heaven on High (deep dungeon style group activity where you descend/ascend a series of randomly generated floors with enemies, encountering traps and buffs/debuffs and where the whole team dying forces you to start over). Lots of fun dungeons, ex trials, ultimate trials, raids, etc with VERY interesting lore. And oh the music, this game’s music is amazing to me. Truly. Try various PVP modes, get awesome glamours to complete that Catboy edgelord you crave haha 😉, and when you want to relax try some fishing (that’s an ENTIRE game in itself, equally deep and rich) 🐠

@Medieval Marty haha I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself man! I know I wrote a book here lol (I also realized rather recently that your vid was posted like two weeks ago so I’m all late 😂) Definitely glad you decided to take the chance and try. Be well brother :)

Awesome video! I just started as well recently. How do you get your buttons to switch jobs on the hotbar? I've been having to find the weapon in my bags and equip manually lol.

It does have voice acting. Not everything is voice acted, obviously, and as you progress through the expansions there's more voice acting.

I am level 19 Thaumaturge and uninstalled when I couldn't find my next MSQ objective using the map.. I am reinstalling it now to give this game another try lol... I played allll the ps1 jrpgs even ff tactics so i'm definitely open to learning new systems... but this map makes things more confusing instead of less until you fully understand it. T_T

The map is awful - I'm about 2 weeks in and I only got the hang of it recently. First you need to understand how the zones work, then just teleport manually with the teleport spell, I found that so much easy and don't have any problems now

Welcome. In terms of anime I'd say its only 50% there. To me its jpn inspired but very lacking in the anime style department, I wish it was more. The help ui can be disabled if you want, I you wouldn't say I got annoyed by them it's just more my style just ignore them in general in any game lol. The UI is fully customizable but still has this restrictions. I played both wow and final fantasy, just imagine most of the add-ons that you would have to download in wow is built in the final fantasy. Not the most advanced but good enough. Yeah final fantasy is very story driven, while in WoW I stopped after paying the panda but other than the faction fighting I'm not sure story wise why I played the game. While I like both games in their own ways it seems like story driven stuff could have a big turn off for people who like playing arcade style basically to just play. I'm surprised the past few days I've been hearing more while players saying they don't like the art style, because for 10 years I've been hearing it the other way around people don't like wow because it feels like a cartoon very kiddy. I never had a problem with either art style like I said before I feel like final fantasies art style is very non-anime to me I wish it was more anime style but it's just Japanese influenced. No matter what I hope you enjoy it for what it is I got real excited my first time in westfall, and it's just very exciting for me to play something new and fresh for a while. I call myself a true gamer but that's just a made-up name basically I'm a gamer whore. While everybody's arguing which game is better or being a fanboy I've been enjoying them all for what they have to offer. They all have their up and downs. For me the beginning was kind of slow story-wise but by the expansions and really opens up and I became more invested with the characters in story. Sorry for my terrible writing format I use voice to text I'm lazy.
