    Yes. I started playing recently and it's so much fun.


    Currently playing: FFXIV (Elucifer Arclight, Brynhildr server), LoL (Zacewing, NA server), SMITE (Zacewing)

    the game got nice updates and well it can be played as casual or as hardcore ... the raids are really challenging and hard you wont be able to do any of them easily or without a good team ... takes months of practice and such

    I don't want to sound like a debby downer, but the raids aren't exceedingly challenging. They don't take months of practice. The only reason why coil one took months was because of not having parsers, group composition, and top tiered gear at the time it was available. The current coil two has already been fully cleared and it hasn't even been a month yet.

    For casual players, the grind is extremely vertical. Atma farming is brutal, it could take you a day or weeks to be able to finish your atma, after that it takes roughly 13,500 tomes of mythology farmed to turn the atma into an animus weapon. For hardcore players, assuming your raid group is above average, will clear the current coil in probably a month at the most.

    The biggest turn off of the game was definitely the ridiculous and tedious farming required to do anything. I remember farming up tomes for Darklight, running Wanderer's Palace and Ampdapor Keep over a million times. I wanted to shoot myself in the face many many many times.

    Raids aren't that challenging, just finding the people that will allow you to practice them, or allow people that doesn't have the highest ilevel available.

    That doesn't matter. You'd need a decent raiding LS that would let you practice if you're below ilvl90. I have ilvl86 on my bard and ilvl78 on my dragoon and they only allow me in turn 1 and 3 of the coil, while I'm experienced as hell in the first 4, including extreme mode iffy and garu...
