Ranking steadily top 3 on the list of Top 10 MMORPGs in Game Virtual Currency Market 2016, as a classic old MMO Final Fantasy XIV is no doubt a successful simple, owning over 5 million players and being played for over 96 billion total hours, what’s more FFXIV is still popular throughout the world today. Then, why is ffxiv so popular? Let’s find the answers together.
Developed and published by Square Enix in
2010, FFXIV is the fourteenth entry in the main Final Fantasy series and the
second MMORPG in the series after Final
Fantasy XI. Compared to Final Fantasy XI, where party-based gameplay is
forefront at all times, the gameplay in XIV is adjusted so that players can go
for longer periods without joining a party. Set in the fantasy realm of Eorzea,
there are five
playable races-Elenzen, Hyur, Lalafell, Miqo’te and Roegadyn Each race has two
tribes, and all but two allow for the selection of male or female characters.
Their chosen tribe, along with their chosen patron deity, affect their stats
and elemental attributes.
After Final Fantasy XIV Patch 3.15 update,
the hottest weapon-Anima
Weapon. Anima Weapons are the level 60 Relic
Weapons for Heavensward. Released in patch 3.15, players do not need to
complete the level 50 Relic Weapon or Zodiac Weapon quest chains to unlock the
Anima Weapon quest chain. Players who have obtained the Zodiac Zeta Weapons will
have an advantage with the first step of Anima Weapon quest chain. The
advantages are not job specific. For example, if you have obtained the WAR Zeta
weapon you will have an advantage with the DRK anima weapon.
FFXIV keeps its patch updates constantly. Patch 3.2
is the newest update, which still follows the main scenario quest line and adds
two new dungeonsThe Antitower and The Lost City of Amdapor (Hard), one of
which will be beyond your expectations, as well as the newest expansion of the
dungeonAlexander: Midas. An epic new raid
within Alexander and a fierce new primal threat that promises to delight
oldschool Final Fantasy fans, new beast tribe quests, and so much more.
Each class is capable of performing unique
actions acquired through experience. Usually all adventurers begin their
journey as a Disciple of War—a
master of arms who lives for the call of battle—or a Disciple of Magic—an erudite researcher of all things esoteric. Elite
adventurers can choose other martial classes to diversify their skills. In
order to find more peaceful pursuits, advanturers may consider becoming a Disciple of the Land—one who gathers
and harvests Eorzea’s natural resources—or a Disciple of the Hand—one who uses these resources to craft wares
and turn a profit.
There are still lots of other classes in
combat, like Gladiator, Pugilist, Lancer, Archer… as well as some crafting and
gathering classes, like Carpenter, Blacksmith, Armorer, Goldsmith…
Mounts allow players to travel around
Eorzea faster. So it is necessary for adventurers to own some mounts, let’s set
mount as an example, flying mount is one of the
important items added in Patch 3.0 Heavensward. When it came out, flying mount
was widely praised by FFXIV players.
Above all, based on many years’
thinks that all the contents on the top are main reasons for the popularity of
Final Fantasy XIV, do you agree?
