    yeah housing is a bit absurd. I also don't like how they altered the system menu buttons. other then that though, a lot of nice improvements. really like how the teleport selection now has the location names on it and not just the random town names. winter event is fun too, though a little short. got all the items in about a 15 minute span hopping to all the fates in each town.

    our fc/guild just basically formed a month ago when myself and a few other longtime friends joined up. we're just now getting to the point where we're capped and doing wp runs for our darklight gear, but I've really enjoyed the ride with the game. subbed for another 3 months to get some of the perks too.

    on Lamia server if anyone is around there.

    If you think that the housing server is bad where you are, I'm on the Masamune legacy server. 40mil for the CHEAPEST plot of land. The reasoning is that they don't want like the super wealthy to grab up all the land and sell them for even more absurd prices.

    Still no excuse, since my FC busted their ass raising a million gil and still can't afford a house.

    Yoshida says that the personal housing will be more affordable when that rolls out though.

    And yes. The teleport names are great now. Tells me what REGION the aetherite is in now instead of the name of the town.

    I've been playing this for a few days now, gotta say I really like it. Everything is super pretty, the world feels lively, and simply hanging out is actually enjoyable. Some quests are tedious and repetitive but they don't seem to go on too long.

    It's a really great game. Unfortunately towards the end when you get to coil and such you'll start to realize quite a few artificial pay walls in place just to keep you subbing every month. When the daily grind became beast tribes, coil, ct rinse repeat for me, game got boring really fast. Myth caps and not being able to sell equipment and actually make money in the game is all artificial as well. I played since November, but I'm taking a break until 2.2 comes along now.

    Hopefully 2.2 will fix some of my issues with the game and add that content I'm looking for. The actual game itself is great, but I feel like endgame just isn't enough anymore, and what it does offer is restricted by artificial caps put in place to keep people subbing/grinding.

    How are getting those HUD less screenshots? I'm likely just being my blind old man self.

    scroll lock removes the hud. think home takes you to 1st person cam also so you can get screens of your friends and stuff.

    So, I only recently started playing (actually subbing) since that free month way back.
    How do you get to the point of traveling between the three 'main' towns? Trying to do the event quest, and that's where I'm hitting a wall.

    You have to progress though the main storyline for a while before you get a quest that takes you to the other 2 towns.

    Having hit 50 WHM and started leveling GLA, why do people not seem to want to let a tank actually tank? I turned the enemy's back to you for a reason. ..

    The good news is that all the relic quests are gonna be a lot easier.

    The bad news is that they're gonna be obsolete pretty soon.

    2am needs to hurry up.

    Yeah, I want to finish Nirvana either way, for the 'I did that ' factor.
    Plus I swear I've heard the new relics won't be for a few patches.
