I just grabbed a copy. A buddy of mine wanted to give it a try, so i figured what the hell. I'm told I don't need to upgrade my PS membership to PS+ to play it. My membership lapsed, so the money i was going to spend just to get back online I can put towards this game.
Nothing else PS4 related is holding my interest until maybe BLOPS3, Uncharted 4 (or 5 or whatever it is), and that Clancy Recon game.
You get Heavensward or vanilla? HW has both and each takes about 30 days to plow through for one character to do all the story. Were on Goblin in a good free company (guild) if your interested.
Yeah, I'm in a fairly hardcore progression group for raiding, so I tend to play a lot. I am starting to feel the burnout though with how overtuned the last two fights of the raid are. Feels like they were built simply to stall the world first groups, which means those without 100 hours a week to raid are feeling the strain.
Started playing again the other day after I snagged the base game on PS4 for around $7. Haven't played in about a year and a half. Not sure I can get used to the controller for anything other than casual low level play. But I hear my Logitech G600 MMO mouse will work out of the box on FFXIV. Just need to go find it. I split my time between PC and PS4 depending on which character I'm playing. My main is on Hyperion and my alt is on Midgardsormr. Trying to get through all the content up to 2.55 so I can do the Heavensward stuff. got something like 85 quests left to do.
I am, may or may not be leaving Goblin soon though. Raid scene on this server is dead.
I'm not even at that point yet, still working through the ARR story quests. The FC I just joined on Hyperion seems pretty active though. The leader saw me wandering around Ul'dah in my AF gear on my paladin and made me literally an entire gear set, every slot, of HQ Mythrite. Super nice dude and really friendly FC.
I've been playing a lot lately. Finished off the ARR story to get into Heavensward. Soon as I did I went straight over and unlocked Machinist. Hit almost 51 today with it, having a blast (pun intended) Just had to go through and unlock almost all the level 50 dungeons. Now I have to do them all so I can jump into the roulette for them and start the slog to 60
