My shell is purely social, but a good mix of different experienced players. Almost all the info for my shell is in the link above, but to mention here, my shell is usually busy around 4:00PM - 2:00AM (EST) time. I don't know where you live or what time you get on, but I'd hate to say "join my shell" only for you to find out the times you play no one is online.
My name is Angelusdemonus, and you can contact me personally, or contact any of the sackholders. Please reference your post here if you contact any of my sackholders.
Welcome back to FFXI and I hope you have tons of fun!
