    I've played WOW, didn't like it too much, but I can get used to it. My friend also has a lot of good things to say about FFXI. Which one should I get?

    WoW


    FFXi is a solid game, but you cannot solo and will require a party to lvl past 10-11. you can and will wait for more than an hour just to get into a party. the game requires alot of grinding and less on quests/missions

    I don't know about waiting over an hour for a party, but there is waiting. Mostly the wait is for a WHM (White Mage). I guess it's preference, but I played EQ for a year and I've had more fun and leveled higher in FFXI then I ever did in EQ. I like the way you have to be social in the game. It makes sense. You can always solo it's just going to take you longer. Come on you'd never just run around with Cloud, Squall, or Tidus alone would you? It fits the FF genre.

    I've waited upwards of 2 days for a pt. Obviously it all depends on what job you pick, but why play a job you hate just for invites...


    Also not really possible to solo in ffxi unless your a beastmaster. Easy preys at 30+ are going to lay a beating on you.

    ask this again in six months when the luster has worn off of WoW a little bit. Otherwise, this is like comparing Halflife1 to Halo2

    Yes, there is a waiting over an hour for a PT. I played FFXI for a year. Good game, but just not for me.

    Well, ok...everyone seems to like WOW much better. I've heard good and bad of both. I just wanted OT's opinion. Looks like I'll be picking up WOW later. Thanks for the input.

    don't even try to argue that it's the best MMO just cause some critics gave their opinion about a game that was just released and is in the spotlight for the moment :hsugh:

    you can't argue it's not, you refuse to try it cuz ur too damn attached to ffxi. try it then argue, but you won't try it cuz of "the colors" :rolleyes:

    edit: he's played ffxi, I've played ffxi, rez has played ffxi and logain has played ffxi.

    Don't bother, he's spent so much time in FFXI it won't be easy for him to give it up. He'll just keep bashing WoW because, well that's what he does.

    Ive played both and I can say WoW is better. But I still play and cant let go of ffxi so easily because of the friends i made in it. If your into spending shit loads of time to do things go with FFXI if you want to jump straight into the action and get things done easily go with WoW.

    Oh and dont knock it until you tryed it.
