Crafting and gathering are two of the most important things in this game if you’re looking to make some gil. Many people choose to just buy their gear, even if it’s not off the Market Board. If you’re in a large free company, you probably have a go-to for every kind of armor, weapon or resource. They’re also needed (especially at higher levels) for melding materia to your gear. Rather than spending time shouting for someone to do it for you, you can hope to find someone in your FC to meld or, better yet, do it yourself.

If you haven’t already read the first compilation of dev tracker posts, be sure to check out some of the features planned for 2.1 and beyond. In addition to the list, we have some more in-detail information on housing and other implementations.

Though we still haven’t heard many details about instances other than primals and Crystal Tower, some searches through the dev tracker point to more details on upcoming features previously mentioned.  (It’s noted that some of these may be featured later than 2.1.)

all saints wake

Legend tells that, at the same time each year, the Twelve honor the saints by inviting them to the celestial realm for a feast of deific proportions. While this show of favor from the gods is no less than the saints deserve, in ascending to the heavens, they leave the mortal realm bereft of their divine protection. During this time, it is said that creatures of darkness come out from hiding to wreak havoc upon mortalkind, and with such gusto as if to make up for the rest of the year when their devilry is kept in check. Fearing for their safety, folk took to returning home before sunset and barricading themselves indoors with kith and kin until dawn arrived to banish the night.

ffxiv-review-leveling

There have been a lot of published reviews revolving around the leveling process and the launch period surrounding Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. This is all good and expected given the primary audience of video game reviews in general. It’s sometimes a little interesting, however, to take a look at reviews that are written and published after the launch rush of an MMORPG dies down and the community really begins to sink its teeth into endgame.

One of our writers on our sister site, Junkies Nation, took the time to write a critical review that takes a detailed look at the leveling process, endgame grind, replayability factor, community, aesthetics, and the depth of the overall game as far as its world and systems are concerned. The ‘niche factor’ of FFXIV: ARR is also examined closely, which seems an appropriate term for a game that has as wide of an audience as this one does:

“The community of a game is always going to depend on a bazillion factors as well as fluctuate rapidly throughout a game’s existence. For the moment, the community of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn can be split up into two categorizes– niche, and, well, niche. There are folks who are helpful, friendly, and welcoming to new friends and new adventuring buddies, and there are also folks out there who are only focused on advancing their characters as rapidly as possible and may come off as pretty rude about that fact. It’s probably safe to say that all MMORPGs house both types of folks these days, but with the case of this game, I’d say that before assessing the community in its totality, it’s vital to first find your own niche.”

Read the full review over on Junkies Nation.

Note: Keep in mind that this was published right before the latest hotfix, so the endgame currency information is not completely accurate.
