Hey Briner! I just came back a few weeks ago myself. As far as I can tell, not much has changed other than the addition of 2 new jobs (which you actually don't see many of) and campaign battles, which are a popular way to solo free exp.

If you come back I can probably get you in my LS (social onry, but large membership.)

Get it for the PC. $20 for the whole thing minus Wings of the Goddess, but you'll not need that for a while, I would think.

I just came back last week, and really, in the span of a year, nothing has changed.

Welcome Back, homeboy.

Same old stuff happening here. I am still eeking through endgame stuff, crafting and whatnot.

WoTG is out now, but I have yet to explore it. My PS2 won't read disks anymore so I won't be able to install unless I get a new system. But I hear Campaign is pretty fun and an easy way to get some exp.

New jobs: Dancer and Scholar. Dancer seems to be pretty useful both as main and as a sub. I think the jury is still out on Scholar though.

In terms of current jobs, not much has changed. Jobs that equip 2-handed weapons got a nice buff (i.e. Sam, War, Drk, Drg, etc.) The damamge calculations were buffed (something like 2 strength = 1.5 Attack, 2 Dex = 1.5 Accuracy).

Unfortunately it remained the same for non 2-handed weapons (such as my lolMonk where 2 Str = 1 attack, and 2 Dex = 1 Accuracy, ...still).

SE balanced this out though: the critical hit calculation was changed as well (after the 2handed buff of course). The pDif cap went from 3.00 to 3.15. So, without having to explaing that: non-two-handers can hit harder than they did before. (Not entirely sure, but I think the max pDif for 2-handed weapons critical attacks stayed at 3.00.)

There has been MASS purging of RMT by SE. The economy has really balanced out in my opinion. Its not terribly difficult to make money, still just as time consuming, but not nearly as frustrating in my opinion.

Other than that, not a lot has changed. Make sure you send me a /tell when you get on.

If you want to see if past friends still play, you can look up their AH history now on www.ffxiah.com

(Although there is no guarantee that the people that are playing these characters are the same people you knew from before.)

The first time I check into my servers forum, and I see people I know! Lynchilles, you kicked the **** out of dark spark for my Drk AF way back. And hello Briner, didn't know if you were coming back, and honestly it's been so long I can hardly remember lol.


P.S. My name is Onslaught, and I'm a Galka DRK.
