the problem with ffxi's customization is that you can very easily gimp yourself on the liscence board. also since the game imho foolishly doesnt use the job system it just feels like a watered down version of ffxi's battle system. i molded basch into a paladin theres just one problem! there no provoke! wich leads to other characters inexplicably getting hate for no reason. right now ashe for no appearent reason gets massive amounts of aggro with her ninja sword even if i strike the enemy first. in my opinion ffxii's battle system is inferior to ffxi's. oh AND.............
FFXII IS HOME TO ONE OF THE MOST BULLSHIT BOSSES IVE EVER ENCOUNTERED IN AN RPG!
FUCK YOU ELDER WYRM! i seriously went through close to 20 phoenix downs at that boss,and in order to have that many i had to farm!! IN AN OFFLINE RPG I HAD TO FARM WTF? mist knacks are incredibly broken too and not in a good way its beyonf me why they drain your mp to 0 and mp is your lifeblood in this game.
while i do think RG is better im sick of the characters yelling my name queing me to let them heal. while i'd like to complete both games i fear i might not be able due to various annoyances.
