Weather system in Final Fantasy XIV doesn’t really add much to the game
Why even implement it then?
There’s a weather system in Final Fantasy XIV and according to a latest piece of info given by producer Naoki Yoshida, it doesn’t really add much to the game.
“The weather right now is clear, but there will also be sunny, cloudy, rainy, and region-specific weather. For example, since it obviously doesn’t rain in the in desert regions like Ul’dah, there will be sand storms instead. Also, as you saw in the magitek intro, there are snowy regions which will have blizzards. There will be quite a lot of variation,” he said.
“Effect-wise, the biggest influence will more than likely be on fishing. During the previous Letter from the Producer Live I talked a bit about fishing, but you’ll essentially pick a fishing pole, pick your bait, and drop your line. Weather will have the biggest impact on fishing through its effects on water temperature. Other than that there won’t really be any other effects from weather.”
The biggest effect will only be on fishing according to Yoshida, and one has to wonder why it ha
s been nerfed to such an extent, maybe because of the PS3?
