LS recruiting all new and returning players!Follow

I know it's been done before, and there have been many attempts to get an LS off the ground and running full throttle. Many new LS have come and failed as a result of people that don't stay interested in the game. Many people return to FFXI because there is a very nostalgic feeling when you long in for the first time in years, they have certain memories, then they quit a short time after when they realize nobody else wants to do those things. This game is not very fun by yourself.

Retrospect is a new LS that is recruiting ANYONE who is coming back, or starting FFXI new. You are not expected to "play the old school way", just expected to be positive, and look at building a fantastic team in the LS. You can level up any way you choose, it's your $12.95 a month. As an LS though, we will be doing all types of events from Nation missions, COP, ZM, TOAU, Assaults, and eventually would like to get into things like Dynamis, Limbus, HNMs and Gods. There will always be help available for any low level content that is needed as well such as SJ items, job quests and AF runs. We have 5 people that started the LS and have the same mindset, and want to build that great FFXI experience all over again.

I really enjoyed my time in FFXI when I played those years ago, I look forward to doing it all over again and trying out what I missed.

If you're interested, please PM me on here, or contact the following in game:

Zemekis
Sofiacrimson
Vanpersie

Hi guys,

I'm glad to see some interest in our LS! I'll be online today from say, right about meow, to 12 or 1 AM EST -/t me when you're in game and I'll arrange to meet you :)

Also, for anyone who peeked at this forum but hasn't formally responded, I'm typically online from 3PM EST - midnight during the week (with the except of this friday, the 22nd), and I'll be around almost all day saturday. Don't be shy, just send me a /tell!

I can't wait to chat with all your lovely new faces.

EDIT: Due to a loss of our leader, we have repearled the shell - we are now at DoubleBrew

Just a shameless Bump.

Also an update!

We've grown over the past week, and have a total of 14 members now. A mixture of players that have returned or started new again. We've also got interest on the server from people looking to go through alot of the FFXI events that they may have missed.

We also have a website that you can check out or apply to:

retrospect.guildwork.com

Thanks!

I just started a new account I used to have a 75 war but square can't find it and neither can I. I'm on trial version now but plan on buying the full version soon and somebody to talk to would be nice lol.

I as well am returning after three years and feel so far behind and lost. No friends. No linkshell. It's like starting all over from scratch. I am willing to change servers. I have a lvl 75 Smn and Blm and very willing to help and make friends. :)

I've been looking for an active and friendly LS since coming back after taking a seven year break. I'll have to look you guys when I'm on next. My characters name is Pellerian, sadly my highest job is a barely 20 whm, since Square Enix thought it necessary to ban my main account permanently for some reason. Anyway, I'll look for you guys in game. Thanks!

Retrospect sounds perfect for me. My char name is "Wales" and my jobs are 67pld, 37nin, 37war. I stopped playing back when pld tanks were in high demand and 75 was still the level cap. So much has changed. I enjoy helping others and doing events so please let me know soon ingame if this linkshell is still going strong. Feel free to send me a friend request too!

Hi all,

Apologies, I haven't been watching this forum very closely over the past month or so @.@

Just a heads up, due to a loss of leadership, we have repearled and are at DoubleBrew now. For the most part, our team of officers has remained them same; We still have open recruitment for new and returning players.

I think the biggest change is that many of our members have gotten a job + to 99, and we are getting more involved in raid-type activities - We have a weekly static dynamis run, There is a group doing Nyzul Isle runs (and I'd be interested in getting more of these statics up and running,) we are getting storyline missions done, and doing a lot of ABY NM fights during the week.

If you're interested, you can currently reach out to Glitterbug, myself (Sofiacrimson), Teyra, Miniowness, Torii, or Joegten for a pearl.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you server-side!

Found this LS through Reddit then through ZAM forum. I just came back to the game after several years of trying to remember my account info. I'll be looking for holders to be online. If someone gets on PST Khudzu

Hi everyone,

Long time no post. We've returned to a pearl under our original moniker, Retrospect II. Site is the same as before, retrospect.guildwork.com. Our linkshell leader is one of our "legacy" members that has stuck with us over the past 10 months; our team of officers are some of our most loyal members who have been with Retrospect despite a lull in our membership the past couple months. Things have been steadily picking up again over the past few weeks, and we are ready again to begin expanding our membership and making new friends.

We have a stable crew of people online throughout the day although we are mostly active after 5pm EST. We have mumble (voice chat) available through our site and encourage any of our members who'd like to chat to join us. We're a social bunch :) You can either visit our site for more info, or send a tell to the following people in game to get a pearl -

Ashbery
Etaine
Ice T
Pezkush
Velata
Sofiacrimson

Thanks, and see you in Vana'diel!

I'm an extremely old-school player who's very recently returned to the game with my wife, who is also an old-school player. We've returned after an extended hiatus due to the birth of our two children but are very interested in the game and would like to find an active, positive LS to join. :) Let me know if you're still accepting new members.

I have just started playing again after back to back deployments. I started a new character on a new server, so I will need help with the boring stuff until I get up to speed (choco riding, airship pass, extra job unlocks) Please send a linkpearl to " Rockhumper " in Asura.

we've had great response in the past couple weeks, and many of our member base are leveled for endgame, and are looking to focus on that aspect XI; for the time being, we are limiting recruitment to players level 75+ with an interest in Aby, VNMs, Reive etc etc and other endgame activities.

You can send a tell to the same list as above, plus some:

Ashbery
Etaine
Ice T
Pezkush
Velata
Sofiacrimson
