New FFXIV details surface, no leveling system

Square Enix's forthcoming new MMO, Final Fantasy XIV, will not feature experience points or a leveling system, according to a video interview published by Famitsu.

Instead of a traditional MMO or RPG leveling process, players will progress more naturally based on their experiences in game, with an emphasis on character growth, explained FFXIV's director Nobuaki Komoto.

"Square Enix's forthcoming new MMO, Final Fantasy XIV, will not feature experience points or a leveling system, according to a video interview published by Famitsu."

But that's one of the reasons why I love playing these kind of games! ><

This could be interesting. Instead of saying i cant to to place A because i don't have the necessary lvl. It could be based more on i've been to place B and have this new armor, crystal, guide ets. and i can enter this area.

I think this is just gonna be really item based. People always said the wanted to have more interactive armor and weapons etc. I think this is where they are leading to.

Edit: more interactive weapons and armor in FFXI that is

Agreed SubZero it could be the same way Monster Hunter is, or could it could be the way Last Remnant is. Monster Hunter gaining new armor and weapons after defeating certain enemies (though don't think you will craft the weapons and armor from them, but I surely would not dismiss the possibility.)

Or Last Remnant way which is to gain enhances to Strength, HP, Will, and Intelligence as you progress throughout the game. Either way should be interesting to see what will happen.

After learning of the new Job system it all the more makes me want to get into the closed beta whenever they announce it.
