Lali-ho, Adventurers! Whether you're a seasoned Warrior of Light and Darkness, or a potato sprout, this is the place to discuss all things FFXIV! Want to discuss the latest and greatest raid? We got you covered! Or you're looking for the perfect fish to bring your aquarium together? Ask away! Oh you want to be a master crafter, but you don't know your touches from your syntheses? Don't worry, we're here to help!

What is Final Fantasy XIV? It's an MMORPG in the long and storied Final Fantasy series!

Do I need to play any of the previous FFs? Nope! Aside from some references and homages, FFXIV is a standalone game and story in its own world called Eorzea!

What can I do in Eorzea? Lots of things! You can hunt monsters, mine ores and minerals, or harvest plants, you can fish, race chocobos, play card games, gamble your life away in the casino, raid, delve dungeons for loot and gold. The list goes on!

Sounds fun! What's the catch? Yes, it's true, FFXIV is a paid subscription game. $12.99 a month minimum.

I don't know... is there a free trial? Absolutely! https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/ You can play all 2.0 A Realm Reborn classes up to level 35, no time limit!

You said something about raiding and fighting monsters? FFXIV follows the "trinity" school of design for MMOs. There are broadly three roles, Tank, Damage(DPS) and Healer. And under these there are currently 17 Job classes to play as. There's something here for just about anyone! https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/jobguide/battle/ There's also over a hundred dungeons and raids in the game, it's teeming with content!

This game sounds pretty big. Are there resources? Sure, tons of them!
For general info on items and dungeons and quests try Gamer Escape https://ffxiv.gamerescape.com/wiki/Main_Page
Or perhaps you prefer the wiki format, try Console Gamers Wiki, it has much of the same info! https://ffxiv.consolegameswiki.com/wiki/FF14_Wiki
Or maybe you're looking to raid or optimize your performance. Try The Balance! https://thebalanceffxiv.com/
Or maybe fishing is more your thing? https://ff14angler.com/ has all the information you'd ever want, and more!
What's that, you'd rather craft or gather? http://garlandtools.org/
Oh you want game news and character data? https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/
You want to find out how you're doing in battle? Try FFLogs! https://www.fflogs.com/ (But don't tell squenix!)

And I got more where those came from, just ask!

I hear everything is locked behind the story? Yes, absolutely everything in this game requires you to follow the story, or MSQ. And over the years the MSQ has expanded and expanded and expanded. There are hundreds and hundreds of quests to get through at this point. And every 3-4 months they add even more. But if story isn't your thing, you can purchase level and story skips in the game's real money store, the mogstation. Though personally I like the story, especially later on in Heavensward and Shadowbringers and the journey is really something to experience, so I would not recommend doing so. There is talk though of the early parts of the game being reworked and shortened.

In fact, the next big patch, 5.2 Echoes of a Fallen Star is coming in about a month! With it more MSQ, a new dungeon, new trials, relic weapons and armor, crafting and gathering reworks and the next raid tier!

Really I'm just scratching the surface here. Feel free to talk about anything in the game you want!

Also, fee free to share your character profile!

This is me: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/9511421/
I play on Gilgamesh server in Aether data center. If you want to run some roulettes or whatever sometime, hit me up! I'm DRG main, but these days I'm playing tanks a lot to farm mounts. I'm on a bit of a mount collection binge atm. Currently sitting at 99, I hope to get my last Stormblood dog tonight and get over that 100 mount line!

So here is my main character:

and my leading alt:
https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/15294261/

Keep in mind that I've been back with the game for two and a half months since a forced break that had started a week before the current expansion's early access.

Sam and that half of Trust NPCs are 74 now. Mnk and Drg are a stone's throw from 74 as well (like Pixie Dailies for one and Alliance Raids for the other). Things might move a tiny bit faster if Urianger didn't have a nasty habit of stepping in AOEs and dying every once in a while, or even if FATEs gave more EXP than they do now before bonuses.
