Final Fantasy XIV is in the final push to launch now, with phase 4 right around the corner and early access shortly after that.

You're going to be exploring at least three dungeons in Final Fantasy XIV no matter what, possibly more.

The Daily Grind: Do you attend fan-created events in game?

Guild Wars has Wintersday, Lord of the Rings Online has the Spring Festival ... heck, many MMOs have at least one developer-created party per year, often more. Those aren't the only ones, though. Enthusiastic fans love to get involved and create events to celebrate milestones, support charitie...
