    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    I was doing my botanist class quest earlier, and I have to say I love the gathering change. It may hurt my wallet by making it easier to get certain items, but it is making my inventory so happy to not have tons of random crap I can't bear to npc.

    Yeah, it's really fucking nice. First game I've played that I don't absolutely hate gathering.

    I sat down to craft a few shit. Ended up spending four hours on it. How the fuck is something this trivial so fun?

    I'll agree, the way they have crafting is actually fairly fun compared to XI. I was expecting something more along WoW's lines, but this is pretty awesome! I could see myself getting cap crafts on one or two fairly readily since it's more involved than select Crystal, choose items, wait 10 seconds, confirm box, wait another 10-20 seconds, repeat.

    I was expecting the "quick synthesis" to require me to hit ok per synth (or something, not fully automated) but it looks like I was wrong. Though it still takes time to get it all done, being able to grind out 40 circle of leather while I go go make a sandwich is pretty nice.

    there's this game you might have heard of called WoW...

    game has worked pretty much perfect for me so far aside from taking like 45 minutes to get in at the start, and my schedule this weekend has pretty much had me not trying to play during the maintenances anyway, so that's worked out

    having not touched 1.0 or any betas or anything, and getting first impression, graphically it looks great, the ps3 interface is an absolute mess but what really matters is combat and it seems pretty solid so far

    I'm impressed that they had me working on figuring out an actual dps rotation by level 8, as an archer with a dot and 2 single target instants that both buff each other.

    Quotes a post complaining about queues.

    Proceeds to say game has worked perfectly, aside from waiting in a 45 min queue.

    Like, do you read your posts before you hit enter?

    Contributing to the thread:

    Having a specific stat to work towards and knowing exact %'s with regard to HQ rates in crafting/gathering is fantastic.

    in the interest of fairness: I can't believe how much better the Ifrit fight was lagwise. Got out of eruptions and the likes with nothing even resembling a problem compared to 1.x.

    And hundreds of people trying to do a simple story quest hate you for it.

    I'd be a happy clam if I could just finish the story quests to get out of Limsa and then go back to more fun shit.

    As a reminder, this is for people to freely praise the game without bitching/complaining (as is the random complaint thread is for freely bitching without whiteknights).

    Be warned you may end up with warnings/infractions, if you bring complaining or bitch at other people's praising in this thread.

    I had a unexpectedly really great time playing Alchemist last night! You couldn't make me craft in XI, but the way it is now, I definitely will be having fun leveling it. :D
