I am currently dabbling in the trial, and so far I like what I see, but I found mysef on diablos, and there isnt much there playerbase wise that Ive seen..
Now back in the day, I spent quite a few years on FFXI - Bahamut, then moved to WoW back in 2006 and been playing ever since.
But WoW has become quite repetative, and Im not holding my breath that "Legion" will be any different..
I am however tight on funds, and my first question is, is Heavensward absolutely inperative to the first timer? or can I get a good start without it? (no sense in spending the $50 if I dont have to yet)
Secondly, which server should I go to before I get too involved in my character on Diablos? Ive heard some good things about Cactaur, but other server opinions will be helpful too..
Thirdly, I know that you can get pretty much all the way to endgame without having to group, with the expection of the occasional group quest or dungeon, but I like to have some sort of interactivity with the masses, so is there a "Linkshell" on Cactaur I might be able to join up with? or whatever the "Guild" system if in FFXIV.
My ultimate goal will be to tank (Paladin) and also DPS (was a hell of a DRG back in my FFXI days) which classes should I level to make both of those a possibility?
An advice would be awesome, thank you in advance..
