I really wanted this game when it first came out but I was too young to deal with the p2p. (I had no source of income and parents were unwilling to pay for a game monthly that they believed I would be bored of in a couple weeks/months...) Now I have a source of income and can pay for the charges. Im a hardcore Final Fantasy fan but I wont let that make me waste money.
1.) Ive read some of the posts here and so far it's been good but I'm not really convinced. If im going to get the game im getting EVERYTHING. (All the expansions in other words.) How many expansion packs are there? I know they came out with a package that comes with the game and I believe it was 2 expansions for only 20 dollars but I dont know if there are more. The one thing I dislike is the fact that I have to pay extra per character after the first one. (Dont plan on making to many anyway but still.) But money isnt the only issue (in fact it's the smallest.)
2.) I've heard about the community and that kind of relieved me with that but I was wondering if teamwork is really emphasized or if it was one of those "I could work as a team or I could just go on my own and get more exp/items/gil without it being that much more difficult" kinda things.
3.) Another thing is will it WORK with windows XP media center edition. (Not is it supported because I asked a representative and apparently theyre different.) I ussually dont have problems with games that dont support the operating system anyway but I want to be sure.
4.) I hear there is a lot of grinding in this game but I wanted to know if it was bearable. (Unlike WoW which i've played and once you hit the 30s you grind for hours only to get an unrewarding lvl up that makes you wonder why your even playing the game, hence, why I stopped playing WoW.) Like does it take forever to lvl once you hit midgame?(By that I mean a good devoted day or so to lvl. That would be bad.)
5.)How high is the lvl cap?
6.) Will this game work if I use a router? (If it doesnt work normally, is there anything I can do to make it work?)
7.) One last thing that is unrelated to the game. Please dont post flames, trolls or biased answers because that kind of stuff I ignore right away.
Ok sorry for the big post but I wanted to be sure. I know I'm asking a lot but I cant ask a representative about these things because i'm pretty sure they'll tell me whatever to get me to spend my money... I also value what other gamers think WAY over the official opinion. Anyway thanks to everyone who helps me out here.
