Not that I know of. At least those that visit the shell regularly say they wont be buying ffxiv at all.
Sidenote: Audeas moved to the United States two years ago to be with Cynth, in real life. Back in February, Audeas got another job a state away in Arizona, and Cynth did not go with. The plan was that Cynth was to move a month later, but before that happened, Audeas quit game, and announced his engagement to his former high school sweetheart, and gotten married without as much as informing Cynth. Cynth was basically stonewalled. She's not doing to well right now. She's had a cold now for several weeks, and it takes longer for her with her medical issues.
Anyway, Cynth runs Honour, which I am now a part of. VKLS ended in December of 2008 because of my move into a management position at pizza hut. Since then, early this year, I was axed from pizza hut and am now a security officer full time.
I got a new graphics card. Now just gotta wait until next paycheck to go buy ffxiv. Bought a GTS450 made by Sparkle. It's incredible compared to my old card.
I'll more than likely start on the Selbina server. Look for Mokatu Galaxius, which is my self-made name from FFXI.
