I’d like to thank Final Fantasy XI for having some of the most obnoxious areas in any MMO to navigate ever. Maps that are difficult to read? Holes that you can fall through into lower regions? Paths that only open in one direction? All of the above, and many of them were made almost impossible to navigate without larger groups willing to work with you. How deeply annoying to just grab one item from therein.
Not that Vana’diel is alone in having obnoxious areas; World of Warcraft has always had regions “designed for flying” insofar as they’re annoying as heck to navigate without flying mounts, and the less said about City of Heroes and the infamous cake cave, the better. So what MMO area do you find the most annoying to navigate? Perhaps not even the hardest to deal with on a whole, but the most annoying to just move through on your way to other objectives?
