I logged into the game this morning to get a few screenshots for a few friends who are into Final Fantasy games but not the MMO’s and while I was taking the screenshots, someone else wanted to do a big group photo outside the Aetheryne (sp?) (It’s a massive blue crystal that is used for teleporting around the world.)
Also, please excuse the naked picture. The guy that was organising the group photo wanted everyone naked for some reason.

Took about 20-25mins to do after 1 wipe. And yes, it was a 4-man dungeon which is new. (Most other MMO’s have 5+ man dungeons).
This screenshot was taken after the 4 of us defeated the final boss in the dungeon.

You can see a lot of information here regarding your character. Such as your stats, weapons, gear and a bonus attribute point that I forgot to assign T_T. You can also have gear sets, so you can instantly switch jobs and change gear with a click of a button.

This is very similar to the Bestiary in the Clan Primer that featured in Final Fantasy XII. In XII, you would have to kill ‘x’ number of the same enemy to get additional information. In XIV, you will get XP and when you complete a category of enemies, you will get additional XP. There is a seperate hunting log for each job.
