At this point, we've talked about the early-game mechanics of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and the trip to level 50. Now it's time to really put out a final verdict based on everything patch 2.2 has to offer, up to and including the Extreme Primal bosses and other pieces of endgame content.
After everything is said and done, I'm still loving it just as much as I did while leveling. There's so much on offer here for just about everyone, and incremental patches add such a monumental amount of content that it's hard to keep up.
As long as you're willing to brave through a few shortcomings, A Realm Reborn is one of the best MMOs in years.
