Well, first off, thank you very much for readin this. I'm a huge FF fan, I work at EB Games, and I've been looking into a new MMORPG, because EverQuest quit working for me. In any case, I'd like to ask a few questions about the game and gameplay of FFXI.
Firstly, as a Bard in FF, it's mostly a support role, isn't it? I'm going to use a lot of references to EQ, so hopefully someone can help me out here. Do Bards get an increased run song? And what do Bard's want to go with for their second class? Damage? Healing? Help me out here.
Secondly, what about a Thief? I'm guessing this class is similiar to a Rogue in EQ. Do thieves get an ability to "backstab" a monster to cause extra damage? And can they hide/sneak and become invisible to enemies?
Thirdly, is there an ability to continually use one arrow as a ranger? This is something you are able to do in EQ, and was just wondering, and also, what is TP?
Lastly, as a Monk, do you have an ability to erase aggro? In EQ monks can feign death and the enemy will forget them. Anything like that in FFXI?
I appreciate anyones help who posts, so thank you. Hope you guys are having a wonderful Holiday season already. And thanks for the input.
P.S. How do groups work? How many peopel make up a group and what are some roles to play? And what would be the best combo for support? And also damage? Lol, sorryf or all the questions...
