I have discovered that unfollowing the post in the Facebook group where the dude literally has a hate boner for FFXIV has improved my overall quality of life. Personal taste isn't a thing, guys-- we should just all accept that we're fuckwits for liking this game and there is something wrong with us.

I resolved the issue. Alot of what was said was taken totally out of context and it was just bad timing that resulted in the spat. We're both game critics so sometimes our disagreements get pretty heated. He's actually one of my best friends, been playing with him for over a decade. Unfortunately it means we're really, really good at hitting each other's buttons. Either way, the discussion got back on topic. Sorry for the display of assitude ;p

Yay for polarizing games!

What makes you think that? I believe he's said on multiple occasions that he was a fan of the game, and even threw in some homages in ARR.

Finally finished all the dungeons in the beta. Not too shabby, makes me really interested in the higher level stuff. Really enjoyed the outdoor dungeon Brayflox's Longstop. You might remember this dude...

Out of curiosity, how long do the dungeons usually take?  How much story is interwoven inside the dungeons themselves?

Did everyone move to the legacy server, or are many of you still on Leviathan? May want to give some of that stuff a shot before the Beta closes.

It depends on the group. They give you a 90 minute timer and most are 30-45 min average, 60 if you're going for full clears. The Primal fights are interwoven with the main scenario. The dungeons themselves have storylines linked to their respective Nation's lore.

Most of my group is on Hyperion (Legacy) a bunch of RPGFan folks are on Ultros because of legacy servers being locked during early phase of beta/fresh start. I don't think anyone is left on Leviathan. Solaris Free Company will be on Hyperion for phase 4 and retail. I hope we see most of you guys there.

Sorry tenchi, I'm ultros on retail. Maybe I'll do a second character and pop him on hyperion for future endeavors.

TASTY!

Alright, thanks for that info. Definitely going to jump onto Ultros if that's how things will roll.
