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?
