I LOVE the fact that you used Final Fantasy as a comparison. I had the same preconception about WoW when I moved from console RPGs to MMO.

My Main from 3.5 years ago is Mage and my rather new 2nd 80 is a priest. Ive always been a fan of the magic user andI was just thinking of the parallels with Final Fantasy the other day. I've played every FF there is, and thus, loved the article and the comparisons. A good thinking piece. Great stuff, Fox!

It was the same for me! I am still a total FF addict, and in the old days, I was happy with my FF marathons and had absolutely no desire to get into MMO's, I didn't even know what it was. Then someone dragged me into WoW, and I even picked an RP server just based on 'well, FF is an RPG so it must be like that'. Which was completely wrong of course, but turned out I loved RP, so I got lucky. I also made a mage only based on the fact that in almost every FF, the mage was my favourite char. Huzzah for FF addicts, may they one day inherit the earth.

Ah sweet old FFII. The nostalgia that that game drums up... That was my favorite RPG for many years.
