WoW has a set up where you solo for most of your leveling and then team up for harder content, and from what I can understand, so will FFXIV.
If you already don't like MMOs and WoW in particular (though many believe FFXIV will be more in the style of Monster Hunter, which is crazy popular in Japan), then I sincerely believe that a different graphical overlay will not change the basic satisfaction level of the game for you.
~arc how broken am i, in each beat of a hummingbird's wings?
If you are unemployed and hurting for money you really shouldn't be playing any pay monthly game reguardless of how much it costs.
Yep, maybe you should also be doing something like finding a job instead of living in a MMO.
Oh and I stand behind my if you don't like WoW you are going to be turned off by this too. MMO is MMO, and we all know that Square is going to mimic WoW in a way, in the same way they tried to mimic EQ in their own little way.
