FF is cool and all, but this new massively look is wicked!

Some of the emotes are a little bland compared to others, but overall the concept is wonderful and exemplifies the nice little touches SE puts into the game that other companies tend to ignore.

Now if they could just get XIV to a workable-enough state that they'd have the development time to add such things.

Amazing. How come they come up with such great ideas for FFXI. STILL, and yet FFXIV seems to be only about graphics?! Boggling!

Different teams, I'm guessing. FFXI was its own thing, and FFXIV is based on Crystal Tools (same engine as FFXIII).

Square Enix probably handed FFXI to a team that will treat it with love and creativity, since it's an old project.

FFXI is in the hands of the creatives. Whereas FFXIV is in the hands of the business execs (and probably the software engineers, who are working their asses off to fix the bad decisions during the original design process).

It's interesting that they have this "feature" rather than an 'Inspect' option, like most other MMO's.

@mxt4347564czjv00q9w9qb1tppfr46hb

There is an inspect option. You just "check" them just like when you are looking to go to someone's bazaar. That's been there since...day 1 I believe.

@elocke He was probably thinking this was FFXIV not FFXI.

@Scin

Which he'd still be wrong because FFXIV has had a check option for a while now.

@Mevan I know but I think was just trolling on that because people love to hate FFXIV.

@Scin. Actually people don't love to hate FFXIV, they are pissed that a game with such potential was turned into such garbage.

I still feel like beating someone mercilessly every time I remember just how stupid the people working on that game are.

@Monkey D Luffy

Yeah we know, you post about it every time the name comes up in anything. I think they may just have been talking about you. Move on dude, we get that you don't like it.

I think I'll be interested when you can jump.

@KDolo Of course you can jump... once you get Dragoon to level 10.

Oh wow, most of these are just awesome. The PUP one is hilarious.

Man, I wish FFXIV could have come out while I was still playing XI, so that I could have reaped the benefits of the "THE GAME MUST NEVER BE TOO FUN" devs moving onto the bigger project. >___>

P.S. I dare anyone who has an account on one of the bigger XI forums to make a post suggesting spamming job-specific emotes during Absolute Virtue's corresponding 2-hours. The reactions you'd get would probably be worth the flame barrage immediately following.

I love the healer and Summoner one so much.

And the Naruto Ninja Frog summoning one made me lol hard.

I can see every single Dancer macro in pompoms for waltzes now... sadly I might be one of them XD

Dragoon emote is a bit of a disappointment imo.

@Nenene same feeling. That new armor looks sweet too.

I'm disappointed with BST's emote, little rabbit ears? Come on... I would like to have seen something along the animation of Beast master spawning different pets as ride able for a few seconds then normal sized.

I would so put that as a macro. Like calling a chocobo size (depending on the race and body frame) bunny or crab for a few seconds then it turns back to pet size.
