Welcome Back!!! (to my computer, FFXI)Follow

There's something to be said for removing one's self from tempation... Or not.

Hi, I'm Rayme, you may remember me from such years as 2004, 2005 and 2006! The last time I played FFXI was October of 2006. I thought about starting last year, but couldn't find my installation disks (I think my wife tossed 'em), so when I got new computer parts I didn't install it and thought "meh". Little did I know that the harmless FFXI Newsletter would be my downfall. Who needs disks when you can just download the game and all 4 expansions for $15?!?!

So anyway, I'm back. Dunno for how long, but I'm back. Funny thing is though, there are obviously a LOT of changes that have taken place, but I think the most stunning was the price of the scorpion harness. 50k?? When I left the V.Claw was 1,000,000+ and like most people in inflated economies, I was running around with pockets stuffed with Gil. Most of it worthless, but still there in quantity. Prices were actually part of the reason I left. It was so stressfull saving up for something and then a week later when you went to buy it, it had jumped by 50%.

Well now all that has passed and prices are much more managable, but the "trouble" is, when I came back, my pockets were still stuffed with Gil, only now it's worth a lot more! WooT!

This brings me to why I'm posting, since I've got some capital, I want to knuckle down and get a craft to 100. As weird as it sounds, leveling and crafting were the 2 things I missed th most. I had considered getting my Gold Smithing up to 100, but I'm just not sure how profitable it can/would be. So based on the current state of Cerberus's economy, enough capital to get a craft to 100, what would you do to make the most money once at 100?

Here are where my crafts currently are:

Woodworking: 62
Cooking: 60
Alchemy: 60
Clothcraft: 50
Bonecraft: 20
Leathercraft: 20
Smithing: 17
Goldsmithing: 13
Fishing: 37

Thanks for your help and I hope to see you online.

Personaly since you already have WW post 60 levels, I would continue with that. Arrows are a consumable and are always in demand. Plus WW is for Shihei for NIN and the /nin epidemic makes them valuable as well.
