I was excited to get back into the game last week and enjoyed it very much. Then 2.5 patched and has rendered the game nearly unplayable. The graphics rendering & audio lag are unbearable. I'm sure not everyone has this problem, but it did correspond to buy FFXIV Gil the patch for me. Not sure what to do since I've tried fiddling with settings every which way I can with no change. Probably need to reinstall and that should fix it.
Re-installed on an SSD drive. Much better. Great game. I defeated the three new dungeouns, eight armed Gilgamesh and enkidu, Odin, and the vile ascian man with side chops. Now is time to become a multi billionaire. I already made a million in the rush for new furniture. A great game. That u square amen. this game is awesome sadly the community is realy bad and antisocial is realy hard to find good people like in ff11.
Like all MMO's, it all depends on the server. I've been on the Leviathan server for over a year, and everyone there is completely nice and social.
