What's the end game been like? Loved FFXI's pre-CoP, and to an extent, post-CoP end game content, but I haven't heard much about FFXIV's. Also, have they added/fixed the lack of chocobos/long travel times?
One thing I don't like too much about the game and I suspect won't be changed, are the area designs. They look so lifeless compared to FFXI's.
