Dear fellow ffxi party enthusiasts,
I am starting a linkshell based entirely around old-school party play, if this is something you are interested in, please read on.
Ever since the introduction of grounds of valor and abyssea, the standard 6-man experience party has all but disappeared. While most welcome this as an improvement, for some of us running or being part of a well-organized party was one of the high points of the game. I am one of those people.
Therefor, I'd like to meet and join up with people who share this sentiment. People who liked being a designated role in a party, people who liked renkei and magic bursts, people who liked camping or roaming in one of Vana'diel's multitude of areas, people who liked being an indispensable part of a well-oiled machine. As I know some of you must still exist, I hope to contact you this way.
As such, I plan to start my own linkshell, dedicated entirely to the game-play of old, the focus on exploration and adventuring with an emphasis on teamwork and group-play. This linkshell will exist purely to relive the game as it, in my humble opinion, was meant to be played.
I am not looking for “members” for my linkshell, I am looking for like-minded individuals who are willing to take the scenic route to level 75. And thus, I have this offer to make you: anyone who joins this linkshell will always be helped if they are stuck, always be pointed in the right direction if they are lost and always be welcome no matter what job they choose to level.
Of-course the intent of the linkshell is not limited to just experience parties. Missions, quests and all content that is “lost” will be organized. This includes all content that the community at large considers “pointless” since there is no longer a need for the rewards that can be obtained in that content. After all, if you have read this far, it means you are more interested in the journey than the destination :)
This leaves me nothing but the invitation:
Please join us, either via our forum or directly on Bahamut (contact Azraelle). I look forward to meeting all of you.
