Played both for a period of time. Did endgame, pvp, etc.
FFXIV is fun and all but it feels pretty cosmetic. For the entire time I was playing it I was thinking to myself, I could just be playing wow. It is the same shit without as many restrictions. Bosses all have set attack patterns too, down to every individual melee swing, so there is little room for anything exciting to happen.
I liked the community though, compared to wow. I would say FFXIV is superior for anyone that prefers social gaming, but wow's gameplay is still too superior for FFXIV's to compare.
Just my opinion anyway.

Because FF14 is a bad WoW clone.

FFXIV is fun for a while. WoW is fun for much longer.

Besides, FFXI was/is better.

Played a bit of FF14 and then went back to WoW.
Playing a Monk in both games makes me wonder how SE allowed to let such an embarassing class out compared to its WoW counterpart.

Shit, that applies to most classes. There are no nice flavor spells in FF14.

the actual gameplay in wow is more developed with classes having more to actually do. well I mean dps is just as boring in both but being a disc priest in wow is pretty fun.

that said I'm about to boot up ff14 and start leveling up mining because something about the gathering and crafting/gathering classes in this game is just addicting and even if I want to play my white mage the game looks so good its plain eyecandy

Yep, tanking is so brain dead and easy...that's why it's the hardest role to find.
>>
>>273133438
WoW is older (so there is more to do) and people are more attached to it I guess.

Personaly it's been my MMO of choice (even in it's original form, by 1.23 it was a legitimately good game imo) for a long time, it just does so much right for me that I don't think i'll be moving on for quite a while.

>>273137206
Not in WoW. Melee DPS have a lot to worry about. Range don't. I say this as a hunter. Some of the WoD fights makes me feel bad for mdps
>>
>>273137592
I know this is supposed to be sarcasm but in ARR that is 100% accurate. I tank now because I was tired of long queues and now I understand why no one plays it.

>but wow's gameplay is still too superior for FFXIV's to compare.

As someone who's currently playing both, and has played both since their original versions, I find FFXIV's gameplay to be superior to WoW's.

WoW feels like a McMMO while FFXIV feels like the real deal.
>>
>>273139160
I bet you beat Coils after the nerf, pleb.
>>
>>273138061
>hunter
Hunters are nowhere close to other ranged DPS's, it's basically a different game. Hunters would be the single most braindead role, even before tanks
>>
FFXIV is a great MMO, better than WoW in every way but it doesn't have that addiction that Warcraft has had for 10+ years.

It's flatly the better game, but I can see why people still chase the WoW dragon.

ITT: We compare a game that recently had it's one year anniversary with a game that exists for over 10 years.

Playing a new MMO is always a gamble. You can jump on WoW to play it safe or you can take a risk and give something new a chance. It can turn out great or it can be shit. And by the time it's 10 years WoW will be 20 years and you still can't properly compare the two.

Hell it's real.

Just hit 25 and Rogue is surprisingly fun. It's a pity everyone else is playing it too because I'd consider making it my main Alt class.

No. Last time I tried to renew my subscription I got an error no matter how I tried to pay them, happened to a friend of mine as well. Kept contacting customer service but got the same copypasta reply everytime. Shit didn't work until after the 2.4 patch was out, so went two weeks without. Got kicked from my FC because of it, thanks SE.

Yo, healers!
What do you play? I have a mw monk and a holy priest (don't like disc) and both aren't doing it for me anymore. Druids don't appeal to me so much with the HoT healing so I was thinking a resto shaman or holy pally. What do you think?

See heres my gripe with this statement. 1.0 had a laggy UI sure but not only did you have more skills but they were a lot more impactful in general because animation locks, when moving then halting you had a stopping/turning animation based on momentum, and monsters were all around something not to mess with because pretty much everything could kill you.

I guess i just miss the picture of 1.0 where you were an adventurer like all the npcs with a mildly impactful ability (future sight).

Now in 2.0 youre the chosen one and a total juggernaut god slayer

Im on Novus. After 50 anything you do can be done at your own pace but pre 50 you are essentially in the tutorial and will be broken off from pretty much more than half the games content at this point

That's true, leveling 1-50 for the first time isn't too exhilarating, however, leveling the other classes afterwards is great.

>>273137206

Dude, the tank is the babysitter of the group. If you think we just stand there and get hit, you don't know shit. You have no ideas of the clutch plays I always have to do to save a situation that would have been a wipe
>>
>>273144298
This. Nobody else understands that if everyone does their job right then its an easy job, however that can be said about all the roles really but when people are doing all sorts of questionable things and accidents then you have to quickly balance it out.
>>
>>273144298
>tank babysitter
no thats definitely the healer. if the party is good the sitter can relax but half the time you have people failing to pull aggro or dps running around danger zones

honestly if you are a good tank or a good healer it must feel like this when the other one is shit

Better question is why you play this shit when warlords just came out.

Already better than cata and panda land.
>>
>>273144573

I have saved situations where the healer died and I just survived long enough to not make the fight wipe. tank is definitely more important than the healer. A healer alone can't make anyone survive when they can't take a hit.

If the tank dies, its the healer's fault. if the healer dies, it's the tank's fault for not doing their job. If DPS dies, it's their own damn fault.
>>
>>273144573

They did that once. It was called FFXI.
>>
>>273144880
>tank is more important
healer can burn cooldowns and loads of mana together healing a heavier dps like dragoon to finish an encounter and then revive the tank. healer is more important because you literally can not replace that role even makeshift. you just happened to be far enough into the encounter that you could survive that long. Now being a tank is certainly important, especially if you have damage mitigation and even health recovery moves to improve your survivability but none of that means shit if you have no healer.
>>
>>273144298

Jesus fuck this I got back into wow and I started to gear up doing heroics.

First off if the group has more than 1 blood elf female I know this group is going to be a disaster. 1/2 the time it is normally 3 blood elf female players.

So many shitty god damn healers right now. But if I get a good healer holy fuck everything goes so smooth. A shitty dps can be carried.

Because Warlords has nothing for the hardcore players?
>>
>>273145170
2 shitty dps can be carried if your healer and tank are good. hell the dungeon can be run on those two alone if its warrior and disc priest. warriors have such good survivability and disc priests are like super heroes

This, people make fun of huntards but a REALLY good hunter can fuck your shit in so bad.

The new changes in warlords took away all those many spells and buttons and situational spells that made them so unique.

What class has the highest skill ceiling if not hunters?

I know unholy dk's just got much more interesting.
