I'm asking this here instead of on their own boards for neutral unbiased opinions.

WoW is dying and has been going downhill since WotLK. FFXIV isn't Everquest or vanilla WoW good, but it's the best MMO to have come out in the past half decade.

Just get WoW. Other MMOs are useless.
Miami Heat not champions of 2014.

They're the same game. Get XIV. Newer game, newer community, and it looks better.

Ff14. Wow is mediocre on pretty much everything, and has been since launch. Ff14 is mediocre in some areas, but really shines in others. FF14 is just a much more polished and thoughtfully created product.

If you're goal of fun is just about diablo-style loot and PVP, and you care about basically nothing else, go WoW. If you don't care that much about diablo-style loot and PVP, and value other things over it, go FF14.

If you're really into PVP, I'd say Elder Scrolls Online is better.

FF14 wins in a lot of areas but the fighting mechanics are garbage. The long GCD is awful, and the severe lack of movement abilities or really variety in abilities as a whole makes the game incredibly tedious. With WoW you get much more complex and engaging mechanics but the same old boring content that's been around for years. It's a tough choice, combined they would be great.

This. FF14 is effing gorgeous but it's just a downgrade in every other aspect, I'm assuming in no small part due to the fact that it had to run on the PS3 and be playable with a controller.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
