Looking for social linkshell full of new players to level with and do missions/quests. I am planning to start out by leveling warrior all the way up to the lvl required for advanced job, either Sam or DRK.

I will worry about subjob after.

I will probably not quest or do missions until i have gotten started as Sam or DRK, then i'll switch goals.

That's the second time I've run my new list, composed of


and not found a one of you. Quit? Changed names? Odd playtimes? Have any other established Asurans watching this thread scooped some people up so I should take them off the 'get in contact' list?

Hi all :)

I've come back to FFXI after a two year "break". I missed it so much and am already loving being back.

My toon is a mithra named Kaelianna from Windurst. I'm just looking for friends and people who wouldn't mind helping an old player get back into the swing of things :)

Please feel free to message me if you see me around!

Just transfered to server, persuaded my friend and his missus to return to ffxi as well and create new chars here.

Tarutaru in home town of Bastok by the name of "Hondahoorz" - lvl 69 WHM (not beat maat yet, Maat=2 Me=0, need to cap skills)

Play on Xbox360 (tag:-"Hondahoorz ver2"), use xbox voice chat as my friend is dyslexic, but i do the typing in chat etc. for him.

Left last serve as kept gettting frustrated with people there who were selfish and inconsiderate to low level players, heard this server was better and after running around with a low level noob to test it out, it is.

Looking for people who like being social, having a laugh etc.
not too fussed about doing missions/rank until my friend has his char higher.

Would like to finish my rank 9 mission in Bastok some time, never been able to get enough black mages together to kill the bloomin mob....and yes, i did try it solo first time, mega

Look forward to seeing some of you out there... will post friends char name here once he has re-installed the game on xbox360 (9 hour download)

I started the game back when it was first released for the PC. I played for a month and quit until the PS2 release. My laptop was <Too Weak>. I quit in 06( I was burnt out) With FFXIV coming out I really want to get a lot of goals I had completed. I have to start from scratch but things seem a bit smoother, I don't want to necessarily say easier. I'm currently working on getting my Mnk and War out of the dunes. Get Nin and level it to 37. And then level my Thf to 75! I'm in a LS focused on CoP but I would love to join a LS that wants to work on doing Rank Missions, Sky etc.

Hi, names Maulis and I'm returning to the game again. Looking for an LS that helps out new players, or just anyone who needs help. I'm a 58 WHM, rank 6 from Bastok. If you need a hand with something or have an LS that could use a few more mentors, look me up. I'm usually on in the evening, though with the holidays it will be a bit sporadic.

See you in Vana'diel!

Server: Asura

My lovely wife knew I was a fan of Final Fantasy, but really can't make a distinction between any of them (bless her heart, she thought I'd never played FFXI). As a birthday gift she grabbed me the Ultimate Collection for our newly acquired Xbox 360, so I had to nab the 30 days free just to check things out. After encountering the "Your disk is unreadable" error, returning the game to the store for a new one, reformatting my xbox HDD to clear the error, having a case of mistaken product registration codes (two different codes in the package, one is hidden) and deciphering the horrid account management interface on POL, I am now waiting the two hours to download and install patches. It's been almost 24 hours since I originally opened the package, and I'm honestly dumbfounded that this game has persisted as long as it has.

Can't say this is looking very good, but I'm willing to play with any of you, if I ever make it into the game. Although I'm going to say now if my xbox freezes, and starts to give me the disk read error, and I have to go through all of this again you may be reading about me through some form of national news outlet.

Rant over, looking forward to meeting some of you.

Hi I used to play FFXI way back during its initial release in NA, but never truly got into the game. Now with some free time I hope to give this game another shot. I'm currently trying out the free trial first(just started, literally),but if things are good I DO plan on getting my own copy.

I just started a Hume Monk with the name Khilkyll. I was going to be a magic based job, but I heard it may be difficult soloing in the early part of the game on my own, so I decided to follow a simpler route.

Feel free to msg me in game, I'd gladly accept any help or company =].

I am returning to FFXI, but on a totally different server for a change. Starting out as a White mage taru in Windurst, hoping to stay mage orientated and possibly move onto Scholar once I have it available. Send Narinene a /tell in game, I'm always interested in chatting and meeting new people! Currently level 8, and looking for companions to ease the boredom of leveling alone. :)

Hey everyone, just came back to FFXI after awhile to keep in touch with long distance friends. Also, my character got deleted so I had to make a new one; so sad. Anyway any server help/ a friendly LS would be great.

Also, I AM IN NEED OF SUBJOB ITEMS! All I need is the bloody robe for the Mhuara quest. Can anyone help? My friend and I both need them, so if you are kind enough to help me find two robes I will give many a /bow.

New to the server, don't know anyone here. returning vet after being gone for 3 years. Looking to meeting new people and making friend to level up with. Lost alot of friends due to World of Warcraft and i am the only survivor returning back =) would love to have company of others to enjoy the game once again.

Not really so much interrested in a super Dynamis or end game linkshell, but a family base linkshell. Where people party up together have fun and just enjoy the company of one another. I am a very friendly and helpful person which is why i made a white mage due to helping folks out. I love to be able to be in a linkshell thats not too big but a small tight knit circle of people who work well with one another.

With that said, please message me either on Scrapie or Bakuryo anytime you require help or just wanna team up. I be more then happy to lend a hand, looking foward to meeting new friends on this server and hope that i can find a nice circle of friends to enjoy the game with.

Pup is name. Pwn is the game :p

Anyway, after a year's hiatus I think it's high time I got back into the swing of things. Would love a social/leveling LS (since I still have all my level caps to do) that has some love for Pups.

I've been playing this game very casually over the last 4-5 years. I don't really play this game for the endgame/HNM aspect of it, but I always love to help out. I have been shell-less since my return about two months ago and it is actually pretty lonely. I would love to find a social ls that does quests/bcnms/missions and all that good stuff, but mostly looking for a good ls to crack jokes with as I'm getting beaten to a pulp by random mobs.

I'll be switching over to this server as well within the half hour. I just reactivated my account from about a half year ago. I believe I left off at around 66 WHM with SMN and BLM both in the early 30's.

I'm hoping to finally get to 75 this time around, and enjoy the endgame grind/gear/the whole experience.

Name: Zaphlyn(had to change the name)
Race: Windurst
Rank: forgot exactly, but i'm on the shadowlord fight.

I'm kinda looking for a LS that I can learn the endgame with as we go, but still has the knowledge how to take down bosses. I don't want to feel TOO left behind when i finally get up to par with everyone. Also a LS that is constantly doing something, even if it's helping someone grind for AF gear or an item they need.

Hello Friends :D

As many of you, I have been away from this game a long time. So long in fact that I think I qualify as both a 'new' and returning player at the same time.
I am starting from scratch and I am leveling up Mage classes atm. I am a Rank 2 Taru Fiend, 15whm/14blm/1rdm (soon to level that up as well) and then I plan on moving to the melee classes after this. I am fully enjoying this game but like any MMO, a big part of the fun is being able to team up with others, crack jokes, and help other people; soloing gets tiresome sometimes.
I would love to find a good linkshell to fill the other half of what online games are all about. I don't know if anyone wants to sponsor a noob but I would be glad for some company. In game name same as forum name 'Rukkh'

See you guys around!

Downloading game as I type this. (Seems like its going to be awhile)But I will be new coming in looking for a good linshell to kinda show me the ropes.

Dont know what my name will be yet but if someone wants to post their ingame name than ill message you when I finally get in. Look forward to playing with you all.

Status: 'new'

I'm looking for some friends or even a linkshell that would help me out as a 'new' player. I am not entirely new to the game. I used to play on Bahamut. I quite awhile back and am returning and starting anew. Though my bahamut characters still exist, I can't really afford to transfer them and I figured starting fresh would be my best bet anyways (I've forgotten anything I once knew).

I just started again today. I'll be on a lot, since I don't have much else to do at the moment. Please hit me up, I'd very much like to get into FFXI again and make some friends. I was playing Aion for awhile, but I got bored of it as soon as I reached end game and wasnt interested in rolling a new character just to go through that boring grindfest again; all my friends had quit too so I really had nothing keeping me there.

Edit: Oh and I am in the EST time zone. My awake hours during the day are usually 11am-4am (sometimes even up to 7am -- I don't sleep much and I tend to be online alot. Playing Aion on a PST server made me change my sleeping patterns to be able to play with my friends. I'd sometimes still be up when my fiance would be heading out to work at 8am @_@)

I look forward to playing with you soon!

My name is Mayumy. I like pink ponies, cotton candy and when I grow up, wanna be a Power Ranger.

I havent played for 2-3 years, and friends moved to Asura and harrassed me into moving here, so I came here. Might be looking soon for a HNM or Sky LS. I already have a lot of experience with mayor HNMs like Jormundgand, Vrtta, Adamantoise, King Behemoth, all of the gods in Sky, dynamis, etc etc

I like to have fun, so if you cant stand a squirel on sugar and steroids , go lick and groom a random mithras kitty furr.

Edit~Oh yeah, the important stuff: Im a hume female from Bastok, I like long walks in the beach, candlelight diners, and kicking random mandragora till they do that "Uh oh!" squeak, and Im a firm believer that chicken is the proof that God wanted men to be happy.

My character's name is damsonrhee. I have a high level alternate characterthat I have yet to rename . I'm looking for a good social/event/quest/mission LS that's relatively drama free.


Hit me up ingame I'll be on sporadically tonight tomorrow and next week as time allows. Definitely willing to help with most anything including farming stuff for
Gil. Seems I am running low on my funding.

Talk to you in game.
