Won't you please take care of our slug problem?

This week’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn alpha video is focused on quests and combat. The five-minute long clip sees a level 16 player go out and battle a few Hoglets, then another player dealing with a slug problem.

Watch the video below. View new screenshots at the gallery.

    I’m glad this one was a combat video. I love the new interface and the attack animations look/sound amazing. Man I can’t wait for A Realm Reborn!!

    It most certainly looks and seems to have a different feel.

    After watching that, as a veteran player of the game, I can’t help but want to play it myself. This was the most promising new video they have shown in my opinion, once again, this is coming from someone that played the original version for about a year.

    The UI layout is quite nice. I especially like the chat window, chat bubbles, and the new map is fantastic looking.

    I’d love to get some hands on time with the new battle system, the combat was what kept me playing the original, despite it being so broken at launch. They made some improvements, and up until some of the most recent stuff, I was enjoying them. This looks like they went back and improved some of the old before combos combat stuff, which excites me.

    I’m really hoping they vastly improved party play though, if it could at least match FFXI, I’d be ecstatic

    TL= It looks fantastic, but I really need to play it before I make a final decision.

    Edit – I almost forgot. That sprint ability is brand new, but I love it. I wonder if they will include more skills like that, perhaps even passive traits?
