Also, I'm sorry, I know everyone loves the FF14 races but it's a lot easier for new players to grasp "You can be a goblin or a dwarf or a werewolf" than "You can be a catboy or a bunnygirl or a big greenish person"
@witchfynder_finder will absolutely restate that the best way I’ve found to start ffxiv is streaming to a friend or something who’s already into it and can give advice and make all the jokes and stuff haha
@kat Oh yeah on the off-chance I do end up actually giving FF14 another try I will absolutely be in a VC with someone who knows what they're doing lmao
@witchfynder_finder oh yeah early game ffxiv was NOT fun for me (as someone who had never played an mmo before). i eventually got thru it on my second try but like the first times going through dungeons/trials and a lot about early ARR (and even later ARR and HW) were just flat out unenjoyable for me
i also dont find the setting terribly interesting even now except in the sense of "i have spent a lot of time here now so its familiar"
so its definitely not like, an unusual or spicy take i think
