Square Enix has uploaded the fifth video in their Final Fantasy XIV alpha series, this time focusing on quest completion.
The fifth installment features a player character partaking in a couple different quests, each involving low level enemies. The Duty List allows players to complete a quest from start to finish without needing to refer to the journal, as quest objectives and destinations can be easily confirmed through this new feature. Combat is also improved to be more intense and varied—weaponskills can be used to initiate battle, and spells can be cast from further away.
It’s important to note that level progression is mostly quest-based and the team is still tweaking various aspects of the battle system. What you see here might differ from the final product.
