Who's as excited as I am for the release? We only have a week to go for the collector's edition and then another week for the standard edition. We're not far off. I am not even sure what server I am going to play on. A lot of my old friends from FFXI are spread out amongst different servers. I'm anxious to play with some new people though.
As I'm not playing the beta right now, I don't have a whole lot to discuss. I feel like I'm behind quite a bit though in comparison to all the people that have been playing the beta this whole time. Well, as far as knowledge of the game goes. Everything gets reset when the game is released. I guess it couldn't be too hard to learn though, especially since I play FFXI.
I did want to talk a little about the fatigue system that I linked in my last post. I like this idea as I'm not going to have a ton of time to play and it'll keep me from falling too far behind. Apparently this threshold is specific to each class, so if you switch to a different class your fatigue will be gone and you can level up that job. I think the hardcore players are probably going to end up leveling a ton of classes at once. According to the video, a person who plays 1 hour a day can level at the same pace as someone who plays 15 hours a day. That's crazy. A lot of people aren't going to like that, but it works in my favor.
