It is a little weird haha. If you go to the markets there's always people using the general chats. The main hubs like gridania, thanalan, Limsa, Mor dona, idylshire there is always general, say and shout chat going. At least my server. There's no general chat in 14. And no one wants to just use the shout all the time either.Um actually there is a general chat. It is just localized. Dependant on what area you are in. Who wants a general chat anyways? Have you ever been added to the novice network? FFXIV Gil Holy crap! Who wants to listen to that many people talk at once??? I wish I could dl patch 3.55b before then. Two days and counting Is this game worth getting into? The subscription style payment has always stopped me. Looks interesting.
Franky Thomas A business does not juice every dollar out of it's people if it is a good business. Buying the game, monthly fees, cash shops (very few P2P games even have one), Buy FFXIV Gil monthly fees for additional storage (Something I have seen no other MMO do), and now blu ray audio discs that cost 3x the amount of most soundtracks (which is bad because then it ONLY works on a PC or PS3/4 or a blu ray reader, cant use it in the car, cd player, stereo, etc)
probably because people complain about shipping charges, or the risks involved with international shipping. in my 18 years of buying things online from all over the world, Ive only had 2 negative experiences ... so for me, thats a pretty good track record. :Palace of The Dead, people usually leveling in there. Palace of The Dead (free exp) and he did it with his AST (Astrologian = healer class) POTD - Palace of the Dead; it's basically a sort of dungeon where you go in as a level 1 and level up inside of the dungeon itself. When you leave, you get a bunch of experience so it's good for leveling.
