    Info about the Chinese Cash Shop "Level Jumping Potions"

    After reading this reddit thread:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comme...fxiv_isnt_wow/

    "Another thing we’re debating internally is whether or not to have something like World of Warcraft’s jumping potion that would work with both levels an story. The Chinese version actually has something similar to this already. I’m trying to decide if something like this should be timed with 4.0."



    I decided to go take a look at FFXIV China's cash shop and give examples on what kind of content you can buy from them to boost your level. This way you will have an idea on what what version Yoshi-P is referring to in the interview.

    So first off China FFXIV has pretty much the same things you would find in our cash shop, the only main differences are the China exlusive items (like the dress) and some of the exclusive holiday and Collectors edition items you can get from the NA/JPN version. for example, you can buy the 1.0 Gobuue mount in here (which is understandable since they never had a 1.0 version)



    They have a Progression tab in the cash shop where you can buy multiple packages.

    Quest Progression Packs.
    And Various Job Packs.



    Buying the Progression Pack will allow you to auto complete all mainstory quests below 3.0 giving you access to Heavensward content and ishgard instantly.

    You also obtain 10 Silver Chocobo Feathers and 300,000 gil.

    You can get a discount depending on how many main story quests you have completed before 3.0.



    The Job Packs include 10 Seperate packs for each jobs before 3.0 (ninja included) so there is no Dark Knight, Astro, or Machinist Job Packs.

    When you buy a Job Pack It will boost whatever job you picked to level 50.

    You also obtain the following items and gil
    200,000 gil
    Ninja Quest Record (used to get your quest skills)
    Item level 70 Weapon
    10 Silver Chocobo Feathers




    Note: This is a rough translation, I have provided links below if you want to get a more clear look at this and do your own translations.

    General Discussion would implode if our version of the proposed boost potion included gil in the package.

    because that is what the China's demographic demands and how Chinese play their games. If you don't compete, you're out of the market. Just thought I will remind you that Chinese version of WoW and Guild Wars 2 is also VERY different.

    I'm assuming the gil was added to help new players get a head start in the world. However, it can be abused since there doesn't seem to be a limit to how many you can buy for one account, just a requirement to be level 15 to qualify for their use.

    The chinese game is not linked to ours and their gaming mentality is completely different. It's much closer to the korean mindset where they have subscription/game cards per set of hours and spend their time at the internet cafes playing games. They also have restrictions we don't like the casino aspect was changed and they don't have any skeleton mobs either.

    The China Cash shop uses Coupons as its currency (like how the NA cash shop uses Crysta) I'm not sure how much it costs per Coupon however since I would need to make an account on Shanda Games site in order to find out.

    I read the Reddit post. I leveled all my DoW jobs to 50 in 1.0. When 2.0 came out nearly a year later... it was a totally different game. So I started out level 50... and learned to tank at level 50. Hence I see nothing wrong w/ a level jumping potion. You don't learn how to play your role fully until you reach the cap.

    The whole reason people are against this is that they think it's "unfair." They perceive that the game should only be played the way they played it. You know what's unfair? That there are people who play on systems that get 20 fps and those who get 200 fps. It's unfair because the game is noticeably easier with high frame rates. It's easier to dodge, perform actions, etc with a high fps. I could claim that not locking the fps at 30 creates imbalance. It's gives those who have the money to spend on better hardware an advantage. And yet people call fowl when they see a game offer a simple way of skipping content such as the MSQ or to a higher level.

    And just to clear any confusion, I am *not* implying they should cap the game at 30 fps. I am saying this thing doesn't hurt the game. The huge grind of the MSQ prevents new players from joining in on where the majority of the existing player base is. If players want to skip it, they should be able too. Game has been out for three years.

    Well let's hope the developers stop making story content for the future because i'll just potion it all complete, I know it says for content below 3.0 but cash shops never stop there.

    Don't really like it, the people who potion it all away will have no understanding of anything, the story, the game, their class, look what happened to wow, bunch of literal scrubs got max lvl and have no idea how to even play. Please SE I beg you, don't turn your game into wow, wow is a garbage can.
