It does get better, though. You can skip most of the dialogue, and just read the quest log to summarize what happened. ARR was a hot mess and I paid (darn you, Square) for a story skip when I got to the stuff between ARR and HW. WoW has 1.5s GCD, FFXIV has 2.5s. I quit like 3-4 times because I was bored to death. I know. But for some reason, FFXIV isn’t really hitting me immediately. It's enough of an issue that they're streamlining it pretty soon. If the summary intrigues you, then slow down and read the next dialogue. If you go into it with that mindset as in "its a slong, I'm forcing myself, This is no fun" then this game probably isn't for you period.

The game starts at 50+, and if you want to then get in the swing of leveling with bonus exp from items and armory, you pick up a DRK, MCH, or AST which start at 30, or SAM or RDM, which start at 50, the latter two being the most fun and fleshed out classes according to general opinion in the community.

Sure you pick a spec at level 10, and you get a lot of abilities through that, but for the most part, nothing about your class really changes apart from picking up new talents every 15 levels and getting mastery at ~80. My advice is to reach 2.3 (level 50 post-game) ASAP. Ranged DPS like Archer/Bard and Machinist are also quite fun (but you need to get to Heavensward content to unlock Machinist). The beginning was a really nice introduction to eorzea that didn't feel info-dumped and allowed time for exploration.

I enjoy the game and I enjoyed other online games like Final Fantasy XI and WoW. 30 is when it gets better imo but like most are saying 50+ also depends on the job youre playing and what you like. That's why they are working to streamline it better. Once you hit a certain level (for Lancer, you progress to Dragoon at 30), you advance to a new class, which starts to bring with it its full array of abilities and mechanics. I wouldn’t even say ARR is bad per se, but it does have some serious pacing issues. Yes it gets faster once you get OCD abilities and the story picks up post ARR.
