MMORPG genre is one of the most popular genres in gaming till now with a lot of games in this genre. There are a lot of MMORPG games but the most popular are World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV. And here we ask ourselves: Which one of those MMORPG is better?
Let us compare these games in different aspects and their main features.
Quests and Story
WoW’s story and narrative have kept a lot of players coming back to this game. While playing WoW, you can find a lot of fantastic scenes, colorful characters, and more to enjoy. But when you compare it with FFXIV, the FFXIV takes the storytelling and narrative to another level.
The quest where you need to earn game currency or test your skills is better in Final Fantasy XIV. They make the player more interested and invested in the game through epic cutscenes. World of Warcraft has great quests too, but sometimes it does not make the player invested in the game or give much information about why you are doing this quest.
And one of the most important things in an MMORPG game is of course the combat system. Both games have a great combat system but with one big difference: cooldown. FFXIV offers a higher cooldown timer which offers players to be more strategic with their next move. WoW has a paced attack system where players can attack more often.
A lot of players have moved from World of Warcraft to Final Fantasy XIV because it is well developed and deep in this aspect. Boss fights, dungeons, raids feel better most of the time in FFXIV than WoW. But when it comes terms of difficulty, WoW offers easier ways compared to FFXIV.
Even why it has problems with balancing and more, WoW remains one of the best games in terms of PvP combat. WoW offer not very complex systems and lets you be creative during PvP. FFXIV has made a lot of changes recently but still is complex if you add the cooldown too.
There are a lot of arguments for both sides and each one of them is the best in different aspects. If you are looking for a game with beautiful stories and quests, then Final Fantasy is the best. If you are looking for a game with good systems and mechanics, then World of Warcraft is the best choice. Each one of them can give you the best MMO experience.
