Since the NDA is lifted now, we can openly discuss our experiences with the game. It's my first beta weekend. I've as of yet only created a character and played through the intro.
- Production Values
- First Person Perspective
- Elder Scrolls Setting
- Class System
The one thing I've instantly disliked is how ambivalent the 4 classes are. What's a Dragon Knight for example? Every class reads like a more advanced class. Like a prestige class I've first got to earn to be.
When I start out a game, I want to select a clear archetype. A warrior. A ranger. A rogue. A priest. A mage. None of the four classes available really tell me what archetype are, respectively include. Counter intutitive. I mean what the fuck is a Dragon Knight? What does that even mean?
Opposed to the ongoing FFXIV Beta though, I've liked what I've played enough to delve deeper. At the very least it feels quite fresh at first glance. Also - the whole entry experience was like a million times better in comparison.
