FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Description
In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, players explore the world of Hydaelyn in the region of Eorzea. The setting takes place five years after the original Final Fantasy XIV ended with the great dragon Bahamut destroying most of Eorzea, initiating the Seventh Umbral Era. Players in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn create their character avatars who will be adventuring in this recovering world to usher in the Seventh Astral Era, working to stop the invasion from the Garlean Empire looms, the Beastmen tribes and their misuse of ancient primals, and the machinations of the immortal Ascians.
During character creation, a player gets to choose one of the 8 races: the Hyur (traditional humans), Elezen (Elf-like people), Lalafell (small and child-like), Miqo'te (feline race with tails), Roegadyn (large and muscular), Au Ra (draconic with horns and scales), Viera (human-like but with bunny ears), and the Hrothgar (lion-like humanoids). Note that, currently, only female Viera and male Hrothgar are available. Aside from the race, players may also choose which region they hail from, which has an effect on the starting attributes. Players then get to choose their Combat Class: Disciple of War or Disciple of Magic, which is further expanded by the traditional roles of Tank, DPS, and Healing to the more Final Fantasy-specific jobs such as Paladin, Monk, Dragoon, Summoner, and many others.
Players may later also choose more mundane crafting and harvesting classes, the Disciple of Land or the Disciple of Hand. These classes are focused more on gathering resources and crafting finished products for personal use or for selling to other players. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn allows every player character to level up and progress every class and job in the game, given enough time.
Leveling up characters requires the accumulation of Experience (EXP). This can be accomplished in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn in various ways, such as slaying Monsters, accomplishing Leves or Guildleves (which are repeatable quests), fulfilling FATEs (Full Active Time Events), running through Deep Dungeons, and many quests that can be done solo or with a full party of friends.
