I'm a returning player to the world of FFXI while I wait for FFXIV and even if this my first post even if I've been a long time lurker :)
I've quit playing FFXI for a long long time (around 2006) and when I came back I figured lot of things changed in the game as I could read around the net but there is something I don't think I've fully understood.
I've always been attracted by the Fishing system and in the past went all the way to artisan level fisherman, this is an hobby but also a way to "survive" and make some money... What I used to was to create one or two lv1 mule in windy/Sandy so that I could leave my main char around the world and fish for carps and such on my mules (slow but still good money and helped a lot against fishing fatigue and to get Lu shang quickly).
Now I've come back and tried to fish but I can't catch more than 10 fishes a day, I've read about the new (well old as it has been implemented in 2008...) antibot measure but which more or less says "...December 2008 Update, when you fish with a job level lower than 20, or it has been less than 2 weeks since your first log on with a new character, the maximum number of fish or items reeled in is lowered to 10 per real life day..." and I was wondering, do I need to level my mule to lv20 to have the restriction lifted? Or even if it is lv1 after 14 days the restriction will be lifted no matter the level?
Sorry if this sound a dumb question (and prolly is...) but even googling I could not find an answer to this question :( I would love to keep fishing with my mules as I always used to do, it's a great time saver for me and made it possible to fish @ the office during lunch break... I would gladly avoid to level another char to 20 if I can avoid it...
Thanks in advance to anyone answering this poor noob question.
