Personally, I was a basic Final Fantasy XI player, so this was a big benchmark for me, in terms of synergy between companions and tasks to tackle tough enemies. »
They also want to remind you that the composition of the team is essential to achieve victory. The different character styles complement each other and it’s important to strike a good balance. They explain : ” Despite the difficulty of having six professions in one space, we felt it was important to let players enjoy the game and present the different professions in their own way. We also wanted to give players the freedom to fully consider their position composition and team synergy. »
