The Daily Grind: Are Final Fantasy XIV’s classes too restrictive?

La la la.

One of my absolute favorite things about Final Fantasy XIV was the baked-in ability to switch out classes (jobs) on the same character. This saved so much time in rerolling alts while giving players a lot of flexibility. Bravo, I say. I wish more games would do this.

But I always did feel restricted no matter what job I picked. As far as I can tell, there’s precious little in the way of tailoring and building classes to differentiate yours from anyone else’s in the game. For someone who loves talent trees and build options in MMOs, I felt constrained every time I stepped into this game.

So my question today is for you legion of FFXIV players: Do you find these jobs too restrictive in how they’re build? Too regimented in how they function? If not, what makes you content about this system?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
