Whilst you received’t must pay for a subscription throughout the open beta, the ultimate launch (which we nonetheless don’t have a date for) on Xbox would require each a Closing Fantasy 14 and Recreation Move subscription.

Like every MMO, Closing Fantasy 14 is a giant sport with tons of of hours of predominant story content material plus seemingly countless quantities of aspect quests to take pleasure in and nooks and crannies to discover. It’s intimidating to say the least, particularly if you’re diving in for the primary time. So I come bearing a present for Xbox gamers: a starter’s information stuffed with suggestions and tips from somebody who has been enjoying the sport for years. Right here’s what it’s good to know.

Server alternative could make a giant distinction

Chances are you’ll not assume that selecting your server is that massive of a deal, nevertheless it issues. Servers have their very own distinctive identities; some deal with high-tier raiding whereas others have massive RP communities. Not each server can be stuffed with gamers tackling the sport the identical manner as you. That does imply there’s something for everybody right here, so earlier than beginning the sport, perform some research about what every server is greatest identified for and choose one that you simply assume will mesh with how you plan to play. You additionally ought to take into consideration server congestion, as a result of extra populated servers will seemingly have a extra complete market with gadgets continuously accessible, however with lengthy queue instances. This Reddit submit is an effective place to start out, regardless of being 4 years previous.

You’ll be able to check out a number of Jobs

Sometimes, the largest choice you make in an MMO is what class (known as Jobs in FF14) you can be. The three classes are Tanks, Healers, and DPS. Whilst you might know what you want, if you’re a newcomer to MMOs this may occasionally appear daunting. However it isn’t that severe in FF14 as a result of you possibly can really change Jobs at any time. There are eight base lessons to select from at the beginning of FF14 that flip into full Jobs, with six extra turning into accessible by the top of Stormblood. I recommend that you simply choose a Job you’re feeling comfy with at the beginning of the sport as a result of leveling new Jobs is usually a enormous time sink.

Prioritize the MSQ

There are lots of distractions in FF14, and you need to ignore them for some time. The easiest method to get accustomed to FF14’s mechanics and world is to deal with the Predominant State of affairs Quests (MSQ) and play by way of the overarching story. Not solely will this introduce you to all of the wonderful characters that Eorzea has to supply, however it would additionally act as a tutorial for the right way to play the sport. And the cherry on high is that this story is nice! Regardless of what you could have heard about A Realm Reborn or Stormblood, each enlargement in FF14 has one thing attention-grabbing happening that can maintain you transferring by way of the world and leveling up. Aside from the post-A Realm Reborn quests that come earlier than Heavensward, I’m sorry about these.

However don’t overlook these key aspect quests

Nonetheless, there are just a few particular aspect quests it would be best to go away the principle path to finish. While you see a blue quest marker with a plus signal on it, choose it up. These are Characteristic Quests, which implies that a sport function is locked behind finishing them. Although these options can typically be one thing you may not want (like a random emote), as a rule it’s a large piece of content material like trials, raids, or the power to alter your look. On an identical notice, take note of your class and Job quests. Class quests go as much as degree 30 and are wanted to unlock your full Job, whereas Job quests proceed so as to add necessary fight abilities to your arsenal. Search for a small exclamation level underneath the MSQ tracker in your UI, which indicators {that a} new class/Job quest is obtainable.

Ask for assist

MMOs might be very intimidating, however FF14 is by and enormous a super-friendly expertise. Gamers are type and useful and ninety p.c of the interactions I’ve had over tons of of hours have been nothing however good. In case you are ever caught or confused throughout your time in Eorzea, be happy to ask for assist. You are able to do this by shouting in chat or DMing a participant who appears like they know what they’re doing. Your sprout icon will sign you’re a new participant, so don’t fear about seeming such as you don’t know what’s taking place—you don’t, and that’s okay! Additionally look out for gamers with a crown icon subsequent to their identify, these are Mentors, or skilled gamers who’ve volunteered to assist newbies. A fantastic tip is to at all times say in chat that you’re new and that is your first time making an attempt a dungeon, trial, raid, and so forth. Most gamers will take the time to go at your tempo and train you about mechanics.

You’ll be able to play solo if you would like

That being mentioned, if you’re simply right here for the story or really feel intimidated by speaking to different gamers, you don’t should play with anybody. Due to the Obligation Help and Belief techniques, you’ll be able to tackle nearly all of the principle dungeons and trials with AI managed NPCs. You’ll be able to take dungeons and trials at your individual tempo by going this route, with the added bonus of getting some attention-grabbing taste textual content from NPCs. The most important drawback to this method is {that a} human social gathering can be dealing extra harm on common so your dungeon and trial runs will take longer than common.

Have enjoyable

The most important factor to recollect is that FF14 is meant to be one thing you play on your enjoyment. Go at your individual tempo, deal with the content material that excites you, and don’t fear an excessive amount of. If something isn’t sparking pleasure in Eorzea, simply transfer on. A lot of the sport’s content material is non-obligatory so that you by no means should do one thing you don’t like, aside from the MSQ which is necessary. However once more, even should you don’t like that then you possibly can simply cease enjoying or focus completely on turning into a botanist.
