    You seem to think simplifying the game makes it better, but that is not always the case. I will admit complexity doesn't make something good on its own, but simplicity has the same shortcoming. It...

    If we wanted the game to be simple, we wouldn't play an RPG. We'd play angry birds or tetris or stick and hoop. We chose FFXI because there's a certain level of complexity we want from the game we...

    I can see the argument of it perhaps being too hard to enter right now, and I would imagine that's partly by design because they don't want the game to be flooded with these ridiculous new weapons so...

    Grind, yes, you now understand the concept of grind. A necessary concept in any game. Even solitaire has grind. You still have not answered where the grind should come from, though you obviously...

    What's your long answer then, because it really sounds like what you want then is mission final battles. Something you only need to do once as long as you win, then you never have to do it again. ...

    Oh, so you want it to be more like NNI where everyone gets a chance to try every RL day, but if you're not up to snuff, then you'll never hit floor 100.

    The power-grind keeps us interested. The next step up might be too hard for you currently, but in time, it'll be just right. You're getting hung up on the fact that hardcore content just recently...

    You're going to rile up one of the guys who honestly believes that just because he's never succeeded in Nyzul, everyone who has succeeded cheated to do so.

    Ochain PLD can solo colonization reives by aeolian spamming in range of the roots. I've seen BST pets slowly chipping away at roots completely solo. One of the most baffling things I've seen was a...

    I chose to compare it to Abyssea because of how much I know you like Abyssea. My hope was that I could get you to see the similarities so maybe you'd begin to share my opinion on SoA.

    I'm sorry that I sound condescending, I assure you it's not my intention. I realize that we are all players of this game, and as such we are all cut of the same cloth. You don't see people talking...

    Roots, rocks, and nests are what you do for bayld so you can get access to other things. Just like how you don't actually want to kill Baba Yaga repeatedly, you just want to pop Carabosse so you can...
