WoW Players Guide for Final Fantasy XIV

Wikipedia claims that Moogle is a hybrid of the Japanese words mogura (mole) and kōmori (bat).

The site Massively recently posted tips for players who are making the transition from Western-style MMORPGs to Final Fantasy XIV. Although the article focuses primarily on WoW, it should also be helpful for players who are used to Everquest II.

“There’s a lot of stuff in FF XIV that plays very differently from WoW,” says Massively, “and at times it can be a bit daunting. Unlike the vast number of games drawing clear inspiration from Blizzard’s goliath, the environment of Eorzea can feel very strange and alien. But it also offers a rewarding experience for players who stick it out despite the unfamiliarity.”
“If there’s one thing that the game does well, it’s reward players for taking the time to stop and smell the roses. Don’t worry if you’re not totally sure how to play from the word go. Get out into the world and start playing, go with trial and error, and remember that nearly everything in FF XIV can be reversed if needed. It’s a wide-open world, one best taken as a new experience.”
