The New and Improved Final Fantasy XIV and Its Impact on Current LotRo Players
- Published 08/01/2013
The game is 14th in a series of multi-player role playing. It is developed by Square Enix and is available in four languages including Japanese, English, French and German. Players create their own avatars that participate and prepare for the invasion of the Garlean Empire. As seen in ffxivarrguide.com, the produces emphasize that this is not an expansion but a complete rewrite of the game.
So far the competition between the other fantasy game Lord of the Rings and Final Fantasy XI has been won by the formers. The LOTRO players appeal to a more casual player. There is more focus on the story and not much magic. The game has an eventual ending and you can win titles from accomplishing certain tasks.
Final Fantasy XIV appeal to the more hardcore players. The story is extensive with apparently no ending. It can be played on a console and it is harder to play alone at higher levels. Given the differences will the LOTRO players be drawn to FFXIV? Many will come to see what changes were made. They will not be disappointed. For one thing the interface has been greatly improved. It sports a log window, menus and several game information elements. It can be filtered and manipulated far easier by the players.
There are three new story arcs. The ongoing story is the Mother Crystal of Hydaelyn will speak to the adventurers asking for their help and protection. Then the Garlean Empire is on the move to invade Eorzia. The three main cities have formed companies to prevent this from happening. The third story arc involves the primals. They are destroying the world by consuming ether which the Mother Crystal needs for her very existence. You will be asked to stop the primals and protect the Mother Crystal. Alliances will be formed; new friends and allies will be met and monsters to be defeated. What more could you ask from an online game? FFXIV has rebuilt it all that is needed is for the players to come. More information about the game could be seen in ffxivarrclasses.com
Will Auto-Attack Be Featured in Elder Scrolls Online?
- Published 04/29/2013
Initiating attack commands in ESO is as follows:
Left mouse click: Normal attack
Hold left mouse: A bigger attack
Right mouse: Block
Holding right and pressing left: Bash
This is the norm for most classes and characters in ESO. It's also worth keeping in mind auto-attacking is used mainly for melee classes which are needed to add that extra damage to enemies. For characters which specialize in casting spells, their main spell will be the one dealing out damage rather than their equipped weapons.
Auto-attacking removes the possibility of creating a strategic build that works better than constantly attacking the enemy until it's defeated. It takes out all the enjoyment of the game and replaces it with fancy graphics showcasing their plethora of skills. For Elder Scrolls games, the games are known for being in constant movement in battle avoiding enemy attacks while players unleash their skills. For ZeniMax to keep true to the Elder Scrolls tradition, auto-attack simply doesn't work in the game.
Excellent Lord of the Rings Online Guides released at Killer Guides
- Published 02/16/2013
Current highlight is probably the LotRO gold-making guide that includes some pretty impressive feats and tricks which I found goes much further than the usual newbie-centered strategies found elsewhere.
Their class guides pretty much cover all classes for LotRO - captains being the only class being out of luck. However, according to killerguides.com a guide for them is already in the works.
Aside from that they also offer a general LotRO guide, though I did not have a chance to review that one yet. According to one of their staff members though they are already working on more class-guides which are scheduled for release in the next few weeks. Let's hope for the best.
