    A Realm Reborn's skill tree. It should branch out!

    I was just playing FF1 as a first step in my play all FFs in order marathon, and I kind of liked how they made you choose 3 out of 4 spells from each level.

    I was wondering what would people feel if it was like that on XIV.

    Make the skill tree branch out and let players customize which skills they prefer for their character. I'm sure there will be OP skills, but also some equitative ones.

    Ragnarok Online did it and it worked perfectly. You had different builds based on different spell selections and they all were about equally good.

    This would really bring variety into the game. And if different skills are affected by different modifiers, players would wind up buying different equipment and we wouldn't be all wearing the same clothes at level cap. It would also prevent the prices on certain weapons/materia from skyrocketing and would prevent other materia from being useless.

    I think everyone would gravitate towards the "best" build, so everyone would still be wearing and using the same stuff and materia would still be just as expensive.

    The closest you're going to get for customization is the class system and even that is limited.

    Don't get me wrong, I would love more customization. I loved the idea of specialized elemental mages from launch, it just never seems to pan out. Individuality is thrown to the wayside because people don't want options.

    Well, in RO you have DEX based assassins, LUCK based assassins, pillar of fire mages, fighting priests, vs undead priests, etc

    It was designed in such way that all the builds were pretty much even

    Skill trees are nice in games designed around it, XI/XIV for example are more designed around that jobs are predefined roles (FF game after all), so while there's people who want to be a WHM with a pure focus on nuking and melee and saying fuck curing, that's not gonna happen most likely xD

    Side note, the only reason prices shot up on materia (certain ones) is due to Relics, otherwise there's more than enough supply to meet demand which drops prices, not raises them.

    They were not even in endgame scene, there were still be cookie cutter setup when it comes to endgame content or WoE/PVP content and this cookie cutter setup was always reinforced upon players if you are in top MvP guild or serious WoE guild to even participate.

    And WoW tried to counter that by allowing dual speccing (2 skill trees to switch between)

    I know what you're saying, I had an AGI knight. I just think we're in a different era and people these days probably wouldn't be as receptive to that kind of stuff.

    Of course, for WoE there are special builds. But most of the WoE builds sucks in PvE. There is always a pro and contra to every build. It is what you want to play with this char.
    And for MvP, all what you needed is an Asura monk.

    The last thing I want to see are shouts for Black Mages with a specific build that isolate half the the servers Black Mages by "elitists".
