I started playing FFXIV from WoW. I switched towards the beginning of Mists so I'm not too familiar with WoW as of late. Yet the combat from what I remember is a bit slower (but speeds up late game) than WoW and a lot more proactive. You'll see where spells will land from enemies and have to react to that in a lot of different ways eventually. Also the story is a huge part of FFXIV, the story is required to unlock new zones, dungeons, raids and end game content. The story can be good and bad at times, but it gives a general purpose when leveling. But the graphics and music are my favorite parts of the game, with so many throwbacks to the previous Final Fantasy games, and some great original scores.Never played FF XIV. I've been a WoW player for a long time, but between burnout and the generally exceptional state of the player base, I think I may retire. What's FFXIV like?
