Final Fantasy 14 Beginner's Guide in 8 Minutes - 2020 FFXIV Tips and Tricks
Folks we're back with another no non-sense beginner's guide, this time for the hit MMO Final Fantasy 14. FF14 is easily one of the most stunning and visually appealing MMO's on the market.
But there's a major flaw with the game that causes it to be misunderstood. And it's that FF14's early game is pretty. darn. rough. MMORPG's are characteristically difficult to get into and will always have a high barrier of entry. You have a lot to learn which is both fun and exciting but can also be daunting.
However, FF14 in my opinion has one of the weakest new player experiences among the genre. It has pathing and navigation that's non-intuitive in some areas. The combat is slow and sluggish at low levels. Before you advance further into the game you don't have many spells or abilities to work with. And the MSQ is fantastic but it is a slog. If you have many friends who swear by the game but you just don't get it, you're not alone. Many people have checked out without getting past the early levels. But if you can make it past this the game. is. AWESOME. It's seriously one of the best MMO experiences on the market. So enough messing around let's get you started in the game!
Be mindful when picking a Server as they are grouped into Data Centers. There is no interaction between servers on different Data Centers so if you're looking to play with your friends make sure you're in the same grouping. The classes in FF14 are called Jobs and can be confusing at first, so let's break it down. These are your beginning jobs that you will pick from when you make a character. They each advance into their end-game form at level 30 and will get more abilities.
Here's what each job turns into once you get there. Marauder turns into Warrior. Gladiator to Paladin. Lancer to Dragoon. Pugilist to Monk. Rogue to Ninja. Archer to Bard (which is still an archer just with buffs). Thaumaturge to Black Mage. Arcanist is a dual job that splits into both Summoner and Scholar which share a level together. And Conjurer turns into White Mage. What's cool is one character can freely switch between all jobs in the game so you don't have to make any alt characters.
These jobs are unlocked later in the game and cannot be selected at character creation. Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist are unlocked at and start at level 30 so you can switch to these jobs without starting over at level 1. Red Mage and Samurai start at level 50. Gunbreaker and Dancer are the latest additions and start at level 60. Lastly your Patron and Sign mean nothing so don't fret over that. And if you have any questions ask in-game as FF14 has easily the most welcoming and friendly communities on the internet.
The early game combat is slow and sluggish. A nearly 2.5s global cooldown and a lack of ability variety means you'll have to muscle through. But remember it gets much better later on so SURVIVE.
Early leveling consists of completing hunting logs which are challenges that give you XP for completing. Any monster that completes a hunting log will have this icon next to them. FATEs are world events that give you XP based on your contribution and are a great source of XP as you travel from zone to zone.
I wish I learned this immediately upon starting the game so let me skip you ahead. You'll see lots of ground area of effect attacks in your PVE encounters. You only have to avoid the ground indicator, NOT the effects you see afterward. This means if the ground indicator is gone you are free to move back into that space without fear of taking damage, even if there are visual effects playing.
The biggest hurdle you need to overcome is completing the Main Story Quest for the game. Each expansion has one and you will be gated from content until you finish them all. Luckily you only need to do this once per character, and doing so will give you enough XP to reach max level on one job. I thoroughly enjoyed the Main Storyline for the Heavensward and Shadowbringers expansions in particular. They're a treat.

About this game: Final Fantasy XIV is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed and published by Square Enix. Directed and produced by Naoki Yoshida, it was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3 in August 2013, as a replacement for the failed 2010 version of the game, with support for PlayStation 4 and OS X releasing later. Final Fantasy XIV takes place in the fictional land of Eorzea, five years after the events of the original 2010 release. At the conclusion of the original game, the primal dragon Bahamut escapes from its lunar prison to initiate the Seventh Umbral Calamity, an apocalyptic event that destroys much of Eorzea. Through the gods' blessing, the player character escapes the devastation by time travelling five years into the future. As Eorzea recovers and rebuilds, the player must deal with the impending threat of invasion by the Garlean Empire from the north.
The original Final Fantasy XIV, released in September 2010, was a critical and commercial failure. In response, then-Square Enix President Yoichi Wada announced that a new team, led by Yoshida, would take over and attempt to fix the issues with it. This team was responsible for generating content for the original version as well as developing a brand new game that would address all of the previous release's criticisms. This new game, initially dubbed Version 2.0, features a new game engine, improved server infrastructure, and revamped gameplay, interface, and story. The original version shut down in November 2012 and was followed by an alpha test for Version 2.0.
The game released to a largely positive reception; critics praised the game for its solid mechanics and progression, and they commended Yoshida for turning the project around. After a poor 2013 fiscal year, Square Enix executives attributed the company's 2014 return to profitability in part to the game's strong sales and subscriber base, reaching a total of over 22 million registered players by April 2021.

10 Tips I Learnt In My First Year of FFXIV | New Player Tips
These are my top 10 tips that I have learnt during my first year of playing Final Fantasy 14! I found each of these tips to be very useful and wish that I had known about them when I started the game.
Welcome back to Tiny Blue Games! My name is Csaw or Chris, and today we are talking about some of the most important lessons I learnt during my first year of playing FFXIV. Some of these tips are meant more for new players, but some of them can be just as important to existing players as well. You can skip ahead to specific tips using the timestamps below:
0:58 Expanded Inventory View
1:32 Free Fantasia Potion
2:14 The Arcanist Class
3:27 Lalafells Are Potatoes?
3:59 Inronworks Gear
4:22 Aethernet Travel
5:16 Chocobo Companion
6:08 No Falling Damage
7:00 Eat Food!
7:46 Hunting Logs
As a relatively new FFXIV player, I have been enjoying giving my first impressions for the many different pieces of content this game has to offer. If you are interested in exploring the game yourself I suggest you check out the Final Fantasy 14 free trial. This trial lets you play the base game all the way to level 35, with no time restrictions. It was ultimately the free trial that convinced me to dive into the full game and the new Shadowbringers expansion!
