most boring MMORPG I've played so far...
Im lvl 23, I have no motivation or anything to launch the game other that I paid for the sub.
Its bland and boring in every sense, combat, quest, maps, the way you travel and the story so far...

Playing mostly like a delviery man, bring a bottle of Oringe Juice to Swyrgeim Vesper Bay western coast of Thanalan from Ul'dah.
And there so many of quest like this, nothing but go from point a-b-a
Its just a dead brainer game, I need to switch off my brain for this game to play like a zombie or human bot.
Why this game is so stupidly boring?
Just found a video thats shares exact same feelings that I have

    New update
    Asmongold will try FF14 with NO content skip & boost, I believe he can make more than anyone else a fair opinion/criticism and an observation regarding his experience with FFXIV.

New Player: Game feels bland and boring? Help?
I'm a new player (Free trial) and currently only level 20 with my rogue.

As the title states, the game feels bland and boring.

I've heard a lot of good things about the game and know its one of the top 3 mmos currently out there alongside WoW and ESO but I don't know what it is...the game just feels that way.

Here is a few things I sort of noticed and feel:



1. The area / map in general is dull and lacks any sort of color

2. I'm just pressing 1 and 2 (combo skills) back to back

3. The moves / attacks don't really feel impactful

4. Going from 1 area to another feels like a running simulator

5. The map navigation is probably one of the worst I've seen in any MMOs I've played.

6. There is no guidance in terms of area level recommendation or anything.

One minute you're in a level 10 - 12 zone and then next you're in a 45 - 50+ zone but
there is no indication what so ever.

7. To view regional map you have to click through so many things and not even knowing if the area you are looking at is where you should be.

8. Quests are scattered where 1 area might only be level 2 - 3 then as you cross to next zone its like 15 / 16 but there is no indication which area within the map you should be in within your level.

This makes new players like myself really hard to get a grasp of where I should be
without turning the game into a running simulator just to find the next area of where I
should be killing /questing.

Those are just a few things I've gathered so far since being a new free trial player.

Does the game get any better?

I don't want to spend money to get the full game / subscription and then dump time and effort in to this game if it is just going to remain like that.

FF is the most boring thing I played

Vengz:

Play FF14 for PvE endgame and Wow for pvp end game. Easy concept and fun since you’re not getting burnt out only playing 1 game.

Nothing wrong with playing 2 games, in fact XIV is designed around the concept that you’d take breaks and come back to it when new content is released or whenever you’re ready to.

Unlike WoW, that wants you to play indefinitely until you burn yourself out, and tries to keep you playing with the power of FOMO.

Galassin:

That seems to reward you for max level stuff. I really like the tomestone thing they got going on

Yes, all roulettes (and the content contained therein, which is, 100% of all the game’s instanced content) rewards max-level stuff if you are max level.

Now, granted some of the quicker/easier content doesn’t reward as much but it still gives rewards nonetheless. 12 tomestones isn’t much, but you’re talking about a 5 minute boss fight. Still better than absolutely nothing, or heck, 35 anima, lol.

Thread: FFXIV the worst game I've tried in a while

    if the first 20 or 30 levels make you fell asleep on your keyboard, you won't care how much better it's at max level

    gaming should be a chose or boring
    and damn are those class sloooow as hell (yeah I know it's supposed to be better later... but sleeping on the keyboard doesn't make the class xp lol)
    main cause the BCG when you're used to wow

    I too tried FF14, several times : at 1st time release, at ARR, then years later when there was some limited free time trial
    couldn't get anything past 15.
    worse, I feel like the story was better told on the very 1st release, the last time I tried I started fresh, and all those "you're alone in a crystal zone talking to a VOICE!!!" killed any interest I had
    I wanted to like it because I like a lot of the FF solo games (not 9 strangely, I was not fan of any characters, design or story; didn't play 12 and +... but 7, 8 and 10 I loved to death haha)

    and yet each time I tried it was a big deception, in the end I had more fun trying to master the craft system the 1st release of the game than playing it's story or leveling "class"

Yet, despite being a raidlogger with on average 3-7ilvl less than my colleagues and a good 10 or so ilvl lower than dedicated mythic raiders I still have 90-95%+ kills on record in Mythic and 99% in Heroic (a few 100's by ilvl).

    Again, I know with corruption shit, RNG is a much bigger factor this tier than in tiers past, but despite the more condensed toolkit, there's still a surprising amount of optimization and depth in some class kits.



    Source? Because as another poster and my own research indicated - this is completely inaccurate based on CPM. How are you measuring APM exactly?



    To be fair, positioning is highly static in FF14. It's always be here at this exact GCD at this exact time. WoW is much more dynamic in managing uptime. Whether one is better or not is up to subjective discussion.

    I'd argue the "suprising" amount is overstated. And that corruptions obviously do most of the rng. Some of it is from essences with lethal strikes procs and so on, almost none of it is from azerite traits. So if you arent a Nyalotha raider you probably wont have felt this.

    The experience we had progressing through nyalotha was TERRIBLE. Someone got a 75 IS and they where top dps(at the start it was an even larger part of ppls damage then it is now). Other people got TD and smashed any bosses with trash. The rest could look on and barely actually matter for progression. THe people who came for progression where the people with the right corrruptions.

    THAT sucks

    Did you make a reddit thread about this too lol?

    I've played both games off and on for years. WoW since mid-WotLK and FFXIV since the tail end of ARR.

    Class design in both games have changed over the years, but I'd say current FFXIV is comparable in complexity to Wrath/Cata era.
    The last few xpac in WoW have crazy simplified classes though, so if that all you know, then I guess I can see why you find FFXIV "hard".

    That said, it's not that hard. They even simplified it at the start of the most recent expansion and removed some ability bloat. The main rotation for most classes happens in a static sequence where the buttons even light up for you. There's not much to memorize. Most classes are pretty simple and intuitive if you just... spend a few minutes learning them.

    I was actually upset at the start of Shadowbringers because they over-simplified my main (warrior).

    Going off experience.

    We had a ninja who, with GCD, and oGCDs would hit 60-70 every raid. But always bitch about how he needed to do more, and needed more SPS to do so.

    Looked up on a fight I know well, haven't done the new Savages. But this only counts skills that do dmg. So oGCDs need to be added to this.

    https://www.fflogs.com/reports/qDz8H...=23&type=casts

    Maybe I was a bit off with 80-90, more like 60-70.

    It with DRK, are the most active classes in the game, during the first tier of Savage when I was raiding. Maybe things have changed? But they typically don't change that much within an expansion.

    fflogs does not only count things that do damage. lmfao it shows oGCDs. it shows all buttons pressed. no one is hitting 70 every raid

    Acceleration
    Swift cast
    Addle
    Manafication
    etc

    also DRK is not even in the top 10 for APM, see below

    its actually NIN > MCH > BRD > SMN > SAM > GNB > DNC > DRG > AST > MNK > DRK > RDM > PLD > WAR > BLM > SCH > WHM per fflogs top 10 parses of each job.

    you're greatly exaggerating ff14 cpm. ninja is the top and is more like 50s. drk is more like 40 and probably not even in the top 5 of apm.

    Yeah. FF14 is hot garbage. I keep going back, trying to like it, but it's impossible. The quests are boring. The story is bad. There are so man unnecessarily unfriendly design flaws. Why do I have to dismount to talk to somebody? The UI is abysmal. The rotations are so fucking boring and it makes combat clunky as fuck. God, this game sucks.

    This isnt how parsing works. I dont know why i am discussing this with people who obviously dont have experience with it.

    Parsing high %'s usually comes from the group giving you freedom to solo aoe adds or something along the lines. THe highest parses generally arent an indication of anything other then people getting to cheese the boss completely while the others do the work.

    And even with your logic, then no. Gear matters, but luck have some extreme outliers. Like i said, you can visually see it from Bajheeras rank 1 on youtube. He got lucky starts proc and did 116k dps, 45% of it was from lucky stars proc. THat doesnt happen often, and it doesnt happen to anyone, but the fact is - its not because of bajheera it happened, its because of luck

    - - - Updated - - -



    But its just not true. Like i have literally 0 reason to discuss this with you because you are just wrong. I wont answer you anymore. I'm not compelled to look up stuff and educate you, i just dont care that your opinion keeps being wrong, its fine with me

    Enjoy being deluded.

    Aren't most of smn abilities other than ruin instant though?

    This is a good answer. If the game is only the rotation, then yes, I would argue it's bad. And it's only the worst game to me personally, plenty of people prolly love it. I just try to figure out whether there are more people who think the same as me.

    Many people(myself included) enjoy the game because of the rotations actually and they arent as stale as WoWs has become though

    1) This thread is one hell of a hot take

    2) When considering an MMO, it would be wise to look up game play at end game to see if it's something you'd be interested in. MMOs rarely play the same at end game as they do when you're first starting out.

    You would be in the minority of that opinion. If you personally do not like the game thats fine but none of what you just said was objective, even the OP said the story was good.

    WoW doesn't even have rotations at this point lol every class is pretty easy mode, the difficulty comes from planning out CD's well to maximize dmg. But you also have to do that in FF14 to an extent on top of the rotations being unforgiving in the sense that its possible to drop combos/positionals. Which is really only hard because of the inherent lag the game has(which sucks big time btw.)


    I think DPS are pretty well-rounded aside from a few outliers.


    Healers are def bloated though, need a giant trimming on the role.

    My thoughts on FF14 Endgame
    I’ll admit the game is pretty Boring. But once you start getting dungeons and as the world opens up a bit more, you’ll soon be saying “there’s Too much to do”. Thats how I feel right now, and I beat all expansions so far (Max lvl 80).

    (Edit- I’ve got Tombstones to collect, more dungeons to find, beast tribes, side quests, Eureka, crafting and gathering classes to lvl up, I’m training to be a Mentor, Roulettes etc etc.
    As far as battling goes you could arguably say it gets a bit faster once you lvl up and actually try out other classes in the future. Just tough it out and you may be surprised.

    I'm level 8 in the starting area and already i'm bored.

    The interface and menu's are painful, the combat is slow, and the quest givers talk endlessly about nothing and i cant click fast enough to get them to shut up.

    I heard the expansions are good but is the base game this bad?

    So... FFXIV is basically a JRPG made into an MMO. And like most JRPGs, there’s a ton of dialogue. Most of it is pointless. The story of FFXIV ARR has a few high spots but most of it is making a name for yourself and all of the tedious tasks involved in that. Imagine being Geralt of Rivia before he got his reputation as the White Wolf. That’s you right now. The Garleans are the most memorable adversaries, but only cepause they’re mostly trash tier anime villains with long winded unskippable monologues to match.

    Once you get into Heavensward it’ll pick up a little bit. It still has quite a lot of resting your chin in your palm, wondering when frosty Elezen is either going to stop talking, or at least stop being a churchy bellend. But I think the premise is at least more compelling than ARR.

    Stormblood is boring, predictable, and its main antagonist for the Warrior of Light (you) is a trash tier anime villain. Skip the cutscenes, you aren’t missing anything worth remembering if you’re level 8 and are already sick of the NPCs talking.

    Shadowbringers is where it’s at. It’s here where your story really starts to be told.

    The battle system feels slow at first. I think it’s like that for most games. I remember trying Blade and Soul and I even felt that was a little slow. But it does pick up as you get more abilities. And even more when you get abilities that are off the global cooldown to weave into your standard rotation.

    I think the real “game” is in the duties. There is a lot of sameyness in there, but there’s also some pretty special ones, too. I’d stick it out until level 30 if you can. When you can advance your starter class into a job. The game will probably get more interesting.

    Oh, and if FireMage has shown up in this thread - just ignore him. I’m pretty sure his brain starts to fizzle and smoke whenever someone criticizes FFXIV, so he’s probably just going to troll you and try to derail the thread. Don’t even respond.

    If the game isn't allowing you to be a murder-hobo fast enough for your personal tastes...

    ... then this isn't the game for you.

    FFXIV is a game about the story first and foremost, but it's a slow burn. Especially so in the earlier parts of the game. If that's a problem, it isn't going to change any time soon.

    I love good story telling. Games like FFX or Mass Effect 2 have amazing stories and are my fave games of all time.

    I just don't care about a bunch of midgets spouting endless dialogue while sending me on rodent kill quests.

    Then you'll like XIV. Good story telling requires build up

    FFX was also kind ofslow at first, though.

    But yeah, it's all about the world-building (at first).
    It starts slow, but then it (gradually) gets going/better as you go.

    In fact, you won't appreciate its expansions as much if you skip stuff. Like say, getting to know some characters and such.

    Sounds like WoW is more your style, a single paragraph of text for quests and you literally slam your keyboard in combat and everything is basic af

    Don't like it? Deal with it.

    Personally, for me, combat at the very beginning was ridiculously boring. It got less so as I went on and got more than like 3 useful abilities. But even then it didn't start to feel decent until 30ish. That's just basic combat and dungeon stuff, though.

    Story-wise, it picked up a lot around the end of the base game, then took a massive dip between base game and first expansion. After that it picked up again and was overall pretty solid the rest of the way through. There's definitely less threat to the storytelling because they (obviously) can't kill off your player character or anything, but they've got things that work in other ways.

    I didn't have a lot of issue with the UI, though. I think the main menu is significantly different between controller and MKB controls, though? I'm not positive, there.

    It didn't for me. This has arguably one of the worst stories I have ever sat though

    I finished the ARR and it was awful. I hit the soft cap for my level then tried to move onto the expansion only to meet the Astral Era quest line.

    A slog of 100 tedious fetch quests that you are forced to push through before you go to the expansion. People will try to convince you that he new update has made it easier for new players.

    Now you only need to slog through 80 crappy fetch quests instead of 100. No thanks.

    It's a shame because the later content looks cool and I love the lore of FF games and the dungeons. But I've never been so turned off by a story.
