Final Fantasy XIV Online

If ever you get tired of heading out to distant lands and all the violence that is required to gather materials in the game, "Final Fantasy XIV" offers an ingenious way to continue one's earning via bartering or self-profiting. The massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) has more than what is initially perceived of it, not just the endless battles. 

Square Enix's 11-year-old game is still kicking ass in terms of gameplay and plot as it offers one of the most interactive among the franchise, being PlayStation 4's long-running FF game title from the franchise. Apart from battles, one can embark on a journey to a more peaceful way via crafting items and gathering loot to sell to others or keep for self-inventory.

According to Game Pur, upon early game, users can choose from the different starting cities and classes that players need to select as they start.

After that, players need to find their class starter NPC (non-playable character) and interact with them until they give the tools of the trade for the jobs. Each tool is offered to correspond to a specific task, and switching from one tool to another opens various jobs to accomplish. 

Job Quests in Different Guilds

There are two disciplines in the game, namely Discipline of the Hands (representing the crafters), and Discipline of the Land (representing the gatherers). Reach level 15 with the main scenarios of one's class to easily teleport across the three cities.
