Hello everyone! I've had a love/hate relationship with FFXI ever since it first released way back in 2003 and now that the cap has been raised to 99, level sync and all the other updates have been implemented I'm considering returning to Vana'diel once more. Much of the problem I had with the older version was the sheer amount of time it took to progress through the game, luckily I hear that situation has been rectified though. I'm in college so most of my time is devoted to studying but I would still like something to do on the weekends and maybe for an hour or so a day while still being able to accomplish things online. One of my great regrets is that, despite all the years I played XI I was never able to get higher than level 50.
I haven't decided on a server yet, but I'm looking for a fun, friendly, well respected and most importantly helpful LS to join up with. I don't ask for hand outs and as such would only really need help with minor things ( Sub job quest perhaps, level break quests, getting advanced jobs ) just small stuff that can be done in a relatively short amount of time and would greatly help me progress towards endgame content. Rest assured I am also the helpful type and though at first I wouldn't be much assistance, once I have put in a bit of time and gotten to the higher levels I certainly would be an asset. One of my favorite things from FFXI was simply helping people ( raising people in the dunes, helping people get coffer keys, etc. )
One of my major goals ( aside from making friends and enjoying FFXI once more while I still can ) is to acquire a complete set of DRG AF. I know this is a bit silly but ever since the first time I saw someone wearing that gear I fell in love but was never able to acquire it myself.
If there are any linkshells still out there that value friendship, teamwork, courtesy and providing assistance to others please let me know. Thanks!
