Check your downloads on the PlayStation store and download it to your console.

Yup, that’s the plan. Try it free for 30 days and then uninstall it if it’s not for you. Or you might consider subscribing for a few months - there’s a lot of great content and gameplay to be had for ~$15/month if it’s something you’re into.

Now with kid and job, there is no time to play any MMO with any kind of grinding, free or not.
I loved GW1! GW2 was nice too, but I think the one thing I always missed was how customizable your skill bar was in GW1. That definitely required some skill unless you were lazy and just took something off pvx.

The game is free up until you reach level 35 I believe. From then on you'll have to pay.

Mannnn GW!... I had burned in plam marks on my laptop from playing that game so much in college. Doing Droknar's Forge runs and power level folks with my monk. Seriously my favorite PC MMORPG experience ever. It will never be touched because like you kids and wife, ill never have that time again. It will live on in my memories lol.

The endless grind too and way too many thieves so raiding caravans was a pain to even find one.

I've always wanted to get into this game, but Monster Hunter World will probably take up a majority of my gaming time right now.

what's everyone's thoughts on this? I'm a huge FF fan, but never play MMORPG's. I spent about 3 hours on the weekend playing this. It's high quality, but I noticed there is just so much going on, so many people with quests, people and monsters EVERYWHERE, and the map system is brutal (to me anyway). Undecided if I want to hang in there

For new players, I recommend you to do main scenario quests (for story), blue colour quests (for unlocking various stuffs), and your class/job quests (for skills). You can ignore regular yellow colour quests. Those are just side quests. You do them whenever you feel like it.

Then started again in HW and quit a little after Stormblood came out (super tough to quit... looked so good), sold account again for nearly 1k. I quit because of real life obligations, but I still read up on updates, it’s a lot of fun.
did you say you sold for $1000?
