Soooo...after god-knows-how-long, I'm considering returning for a bit to FFXI out of nostalgia and the fact that I just graduated from college and feel as though I have nothing to do.
Not sure who out there still remembers me...or who out there I remember. Long story short, I'm feeling awfully disoriented. I haven't gotten the game to run yet, but I'm trying to catch myself up in all the new additions before I log in and sit, unmoving, for hours while I try to figure out what the hell is going on the in the game.
Could someone briefly give me a rundown on the major changes? I don't need explanations, as I can google them afterward, but just a list of things I should familiarize myself with before I log on. I believe the last thing I read, post-quitting, was about the level scaling for parties. I may have even logged in for a week while that was in effect, but never got much experience.
Any advice would be tremendously appreciated...just let me know what is important for me to read up on before I crash land back in Vanadiel and act like a noob. =)
