Hello, I'm returning to FF14 after a /long/ break. I just restarted and laughed to read that most of my hear is now "Dated". I assume that means there are better versions available now than previous. As a basis of reference I've not played since oh... 2 or 3 months after initial launch. Give or take a bit.
Since I've been away there have been loads of changes. Its hard to really get around just how much is different. So far I've read up on some Dungeons, Inn rooms, and faction leve's and the Grand Companies (a bit).
-I guess my main questions now are what city(ies) does(do) most people work out of/around?
-Is there a flow to where I should go to level? Like in XI there was the area out side the city, to the Dunes, etc. (Also dungeons as i understand that is where some of the gear is.)
-Is there a Gobbie Bag? I noticed an equipment slot for packs.
-At what level thresholds are the big quests that should be side tracted to do? Like Materia, factions, storyline, etc.
(i.e. XI's second job system at 18. I've read the loadstones info on 14's jobs so i know those are at 30.)
And lastly, I'm tired of soloing all the time with no one to talk to. Is there an English speaking or english friendly linkshell on Balmung?
Thanks in advance!
