I really liked FF XIV when playing as a tank...I love it as a DPS.  It's been a completely different experience with this new class, and I say with confidence that this is now my all-time favorite MMO.  I was just going to sub for 30 days and see what's new, but I re-upped for 90 days yesterday.  This is the first time I've ever looked forward to trying out end-game content on an MMO...they typically don't keep me interested that long.
I agree.  I've been enjoying playing a lancer.  It's unfortunate that so many mmo's rely on the group role trinity, and then make the tank role so stressful.  In FF14 there's no hiding the potential negative side of playing a tank since you have to do group content starting at level 15.  On a positive note, it seems like a lot of players recognize this and at least try to give the tank player commendations.  What's so interesting (to me) about this game is that you may be grouping with players that are doing a level 20 dungeon with you, but those players are already level 30+ in other classes...on the same character.   

I got my chocobo last night.  I felt like I earned it after 3 group dungeons, 1 group primal fight, and 2000 company seals.  It's pretty cool how the chocobos have your grand company logo on their barding.     

I love the fact that you can try out every class as the same character.  The only problem is that leveling a sub-class without any story quests (doing only leves, dungeons, and mob grinding) is downright painful.

Was a very productive FF XIV weekend.  I hit the level cap with my Bard (yay!), finished my class quest and got the first 4 pieces of blue gear and final Bard abilities, ran two new dungeons for the first time, got my first piece of Darklight gear (will have it this afternoon), finished the second to last tiers in both the Archer and a Maelstrom hunting logs, and made significant progress on the story quests.  I've got about a dozen left.

Looking forward to trying out some MMO endgame content for the first time ever.  I've got a rough plan together for getting iLevel up to 70 plus my Relic weapon, which should keep me busy for quite a while.

Gratz!

Now you gotta work on the beast faction mounts. They're good to work on while waiting for dungeons runs to launch.

Patch 2.3 was released this week, which brings a ton of new additions.  Wild Hunts (similar to FF XII), a new PvP mode, multiple new dungeons, a continuation of the main storyline, chocobo raising, on and on.  Most of the new content is intended for high level, so I'm very excited to get going on it.  Bard is now at iLvl 94 with an atma weapon, working on my animus books (got 2 of 9 complete).  All this new stuff should keep me busy until the expansion next year.  smile

Thought this was a cool sunset shot in Limsa Lominsa, standing right outside the Grand Company HQ.
