An an anodyne to my rage post, the things I like about FFXIV (which I am totally hooked on):
- Awesome main story
- No need to loot mobs
- Lots of appearance options (allocate a lot of time to character creation) means that even the 9 million Miqo’te (of which I am one) don’t look exactly the same. Then you get dye options in game.
- Pretty! My hair is actually glossy and moves in the wind. Even the ugly creatures look cool.
- You can play all the classes on one toon, so you never lose all those achievements (if WoW has taught me anything …)
- Hunting Logs.
- You can learn all the professions.
