Stated on my other, dead thread:
So thanks to encouragement from Pergatory and other posters, I am joining Asura
I don't know for sure what race/nation I'll be yet, but I plan on focusing on Blue Mage as my main. With it, I'll be raising THF WAR NIN SMN WHM BLM as well as dabbling in the other jobs and learning about Scholar and Dancer since they are new to me.
I have played before. Quite a long time. I got the game with pre-order back in 2003 (October) and played many characters, many nations, many ranks and servers and accounts even. I've put everything into my gameplay and my cocky self says "I do things right" and if I don't, I learn from it and improve. A lot of jobs I didn't take very far because I wasn't confident in being what I can be.
My gear is of course dependant on income, but when it comes to skillchaining, SATA, Refresh, Healing, Blood Pacts, etc.. I got that down. Like riding a bike, they say.
I hope I don't come off as arrogant, I just want to show that I can be of use to you and won't let you down. I pride myself on helping others in every aspect of my life. If you have a question I will try to find the answer. If you need a mission completed, let's get some people together.
I can't promise when I'll be on, I told myself I would only play when I had time. Homework, my job, and my Photography come first. I believe it's important to have a good social life and to stay active, but when I run out of money, you can only do so much til it effects your wallet, so no matter how I slice it, I have 2hrs a night at least to play, gauranteed.
Last but not least, I am bringing a friend with me who is new to the game. I will show her the ropes and be there to help her when she needs it, but sometimes she may be on when I'm not, and I want a good linkshell that we can call home and be comfortable with.
Basically we want to be involved. If I wanted to play by myself I'd be in WoW still which would be much easier, or I could just download a game and play that. FFXI is all about groups and relying on others.
If we sound like good candidates for your linkshell, let me know. I am open to a few linkshells but will want one general use one. I'm hoping for a good amount of pearl holders and though a central leader.. having folks to maintain the peace when they aren't on.
Handouts I'm not too worried about. Just need folks to talk with, party with, and enjoy the experience with as we grow together.
So how about it? anyone alive out there?
