I grew up on an RP server in WOW TBC Gold WoW which is why the city of WoW being a lively place was nothing new to me. Yet, FFXIV does it in the most unique way and it's definitely not a traditional role play. It's just people playing and having fun. This is what's unique.
However, a couple of weeks ago I was in this sub reading in the background and came across a few articles about limsa Afkers. I decided to drop by cheap Burning Crusade Classic Gold to take a look since when you get to level 61 the city states of og start showing up less and less in the story.
