Final Fantasy 14 Gameplay - 5 Things You'll Love

Bring it on.
Bring it on.

Leveling-up is just a bonus.

Eorzea is a vast land with a lot of things to offer. What drives an Adventurer to keep on exploring every nook and cranny of this virtual world?

Final Fantasy 14's gameplay has been renowned for its simplicity, and at the same time, its complexity. Gone are the days when the party was just a bunch of pixels, waiting for its turn to slash a monster from several pixels away without the sword even touching the enemy. Outside the usual level grinding in the fields which occupies most of your online time, there are more things to do in town rather than just shopping for potions. Here's what you'll love about FF 14's gameplay:

1. Teamwork

The more, the merrier.

No man is an island. There is strength in numbers. In Final Fantasy 14, gameplay focuses on teamwork.  Forging a lasting commitment with your party allows you to zoom through quests easily. Soloing quests might sound good in earlier levels when you want to monopolize the experience, but as you level up, Eorzea can be such a monster that sometimes, your valor won’t just cut it. In times like these, your comrades are your pillars of salvation.

Notorious Monster Odin

Meeting Odin is one of those instances that you don't wanna be alone.

Usually, team compositions involve a tank to soak up enemy hits and attract the target’s attention, a melee damage dealer, a ranged damager or nuke mage, and a dedicated healer; this is to ascertain that when something goes out of hand, the error would be less punishing. Team synergy is critical and a wrong move might spell ruin, especially in higher-tier quests like FATEs (Full Active Time Event) wherein you will be fending off a horde of Jackals, charging against a glittering Brounger at the Iron Lake of Outer La Noscea, or slaying the noble Odin for experience and Company Seals. Of course, no effort is left unpaid – accompanying your fellow Adventurers rewards you with Limit Breaks, a powerful move that can only be attained in a party of four or more.
