Hello new folks to FFXI.

I am Mageoholic and I need you to help me. I am looking for a way to spark my interest in actually logging into the game. I believe that one of my favorite parts of this game was helping others understand it, and become better through knowledge and practical experience. Across all facets and styles of game play. I do not believe myself a Guru on the game, or its mechanics, but I have a strong knowledge of it, and have done nothing but talk and dissect it for a decade.

I invite you to join me on Lakshmi, I will build a LS dedicated to us working together to better ourselves in knowledge and practical experience...while experiencing the games content and rewards. If you are interested hop over to the Lakshmi forums and post in our community thread. Introduce yourself and meet the ZAM players of Lakshmi.

My goal is to get as many new folks together as we can, so you can all share the experience of discovering Vana'Diel like I got to.

If any of the Lakshmi ZAM members would like join me in this endeavor I also invite you to post in the Lakshmi community thread.

However I do have one rule.

I will not give you Gil, Equipment, Spells. I will teach you how to earn money for this stuff, and will help you understand valuation and requirement, but I will not provide handouts.

What you can expect to see from me,
Groups being formed by myself regularly
EXP.
Unlocking Job Quests
Level Cap Break Quests
AF Quests
HNM/NM Fights (old and new for experience and progression.)
Spell farming (Blue Mage.)

In addition to,
Understanding game mechanics
Understanding Job fundamentals
Understanding routes to make Gil

and most importantly (I hope)
Many friends who are experiencing this game along with you.

Wow, talk about a hivemind.

That's part of the reason I reactivated. I am definitely interested in this Mageo.

There you go rdmcandie.

You said it yourself--trolls are what keep forums like these alive.

So just make sure that while youre writing up a candid, sarcastic, blunt, and/or angry response you manage to conjure up, you remember that CorncobWilly is only doing this for the greater good of the forum, and that this forum is a better place because of him :)

Hi, I'm Rdmcandie. Everyone who knows anything about this game realizes that I am a sub-par player who simply doesn't get it. I'm looking for a group of noobs to follow me around and say "ooo, ahhh, you're so cool and awesome! I'm super impressed with how bad-*** you are!" so that I can feel good about myself.

This strikes me as being very similar to that drunk girl who walks around the bar asking guys if they think she's hot. That whole "need for validation of self-worth" is really amusing.




this is

the best post

i have ever seen

I, for my part, came back to the game in november, Just to see all the ppl I knew were gone and thus, no LS. I was on ( R.I.P.) Garuda and now on Lakshmi. I got my PLD at 75 and since I'm flying solo, working on my Subs. I always did help others and really don't expect allot in return. I'm just happy to get someone further in the game, like me.

I'd like to help you rdmcandie! I'm a casual player and hope to see you soon in game!

Hey Bolime!

I will track you down. I should be on most of today, so Ill keep my eyes open.

@Lionheart.
He needs more practice but practice makes perfect.

@Corncob.
I probably could be considered subpar considering I have done 0 void watch, 0 NNI, 0 Legion, really have not progressed at all over the past 2 years. As for validation for myself? Maybe you are right, maybe it is some sort of validation I seek

Name's Sanoske, FYI - not Japanese, just used to really like the character from Kenshin.

I also just came back. Last night as a matter of fact. Played off and on from 2005. Was a member in a linkshell that went away years ago, then the rest of the ones I knew went to XIV. Since I play mostly on a XBOX 360 (please excuse slow chat typing ha ha) and some on my pc I wanted to stay in XI. I was on Garuda and now Laksmi and really never got too far along. I was jonesing for a good old fashioned D&D style RPG and so decided to return to FFXI.

I'm still fairly low level (highest is 49 WAR) but have several jobs leveled to 20's and 30's. Rank 5 (from SanDy), and of course looking for help/parties to move storyline along. Really would like to get into a LS that will re acclimate me to the game and get me growing again. My biggest obstacle was time to be involved, I have a little more time these days and especially through the winter. I can be on most weeknights (EST) but not usually a Fri-Sat, although through the winter may have more weekends (we'll see).

Mageoholic I might be on for a little bit tonight, but tomorrow night for sure. I'll see if you're around if you don't mind.

Thanks!
Sano

Artemas, Sanoske, Aeliuskat

I will be on later tonight (around 11-12PM EST) I will search for you, If you happen to play earlier try taking a look for Tijet and he will also be able to provide you a pearl.

Sorry for to the delay to everyone I wasn't expecting such a quick response and still have 2 weeks remaining of 10-12 hour work days (come on christmas) I have your names and will do my best at getting you hooked up, however until the 19th my play time will be sporadic at best except for weekends, so I will hopefully get to you all before sunday.

Hi, name's Mailoc in game.

To start, I used to play extensively back in 2005-2007 so I'm not a complete newb but events happened that forced me to stop playing. the past few days I was thinking about this game and saw that it was $20 so I figured "why not?" However it seems this game has changed a LOT and I have to start from scratch again. I saw this and I think I will need something like this to help ease me back into the game.

Looking forward to meeting ya'll.

I, for my part, was lucky enough to have ran into tijet a few days ago and got a pearl! But I think they are in finals (school/college/university) so they r not on most of the time. Im usually alone in schooloflearning linkshell.

Id imagine we will see the leaders during holiday break hopefully

;-)

I am sorry my playtime is wonky right now due to work. We are poulling extra hours trying to finish a build out before christmas shutdown so It is really up in the air. I will usually be on once a day or so after I get it, which should be about 11PMEST most days but lately has been more like 1:30-2 EST.

But come the 17th or so I should be on for a couple weeks. I will be trying to get everyone a pearlsack as soon as I can so I you can invite your friends and such, and hopefully there will be more people available to also extend shells to everyone.

To be honest I didn't quite expect the number of people interested to be so high and admittedly did not prepare for the shell to take off as well as it has in the first week or so. So I am sorry that I have been slow to get everyone but I will be able to do more in the next week or so. Please be patient as I will get to you when I can.

Thanks!.

in the meantime I believe Tijet is doing school stuff so his playtime is also wonky, but you could seek out Landlubber he has a pearlsack and should be able to give you a pearl. (please understand Landlubber is a new returnee to the game and may not be able to meet you in certain areas, or in a speedy manner but he should be able to assist you.)

To add,
I will be on for a couple of hours this morning, I will search for people and promote sacks for those online, those with sacks I would greatly appreciate any assistance in recruiting interested people if you wouldn't mind.

It would seem that I am still only able to stay connected for 15-20 minutes at a time. I thought I solved the problem but apparently not. If anyone knows how to fix this I would be greatly appreciative. It seems to only affect FFXI, Whenever I am connected to it my computer drops connection, when I am not my computer holds connection fine. Is this a fire wall issue or a port issue? (do I need to reinstall FFXI.) I use steam is it something to do with that?

I thought It was just a network issue originally but I checked it out on saturday and I only lose connection when playing FFXI, It is up all the time otherwise. (also never had this problem before, only since a few weeks ago.)

Yeah. I'm in the middle of finals week. Most of my free time has been devoted to studying. I'm very sorry I haven't been online!

I had a similar issue a while back. It turned out to be a bad modem. I only noticed it on FFXI, but I think it had to do with when I was surfing the web, it would be idle a lot and go unnoticeable. I only noticed it when I needed a constant connection with something like a game. Not sure this is your problem but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Thats what I thought at first as well, heck my brother even did some test that showed it just dropped after 20 or so minutes however we only ever checked it with FFXI. I checked with EVE the other day just on a whim, and It was able to maintain a connection indefinitely, so it seems to be a problem with FFXI. So I tried playing some other online games, for my PS3, XBOX and PC, 2 of them had connectivity issues, 1 was DUST on the PS3 (could not connect at all to the server, so it could be down it is a Beta game) the other was TF3 on Steam.

So I am thinking that it could be my router (although it is fairly new, the modem is new as well.) something with steam, or that FFXI just has an archaic DC dimension that has very limited recovery period for dropped connections. However since I seem to be experiencing this problem mostly alone, Perhaps ill try just going to my modem without the router and see if the problem persists.

Thank you for you feedback!.
