Hello all, just began playing FFXI after my FFXI Ultimate Collection came in the mail. I am starting up on Diabolos after starting a few threads on the general forums and having a player from this server (SillyXSara) responding.

I am a fairly avid Final Fantasy Fan so if anyone wants to discuss FF lore in game or on here I would be more than happy to oblige :)

For the past week I have been reading the various FFXI forums and I figured I would introduce myself to the world I will be playing on as well as finally hopping on the saddle and starting my adventure.

I do hope to adventure with you guys in the near future, but for now Sandoria is the beginning.

Welcome!

FF fan?


You must answer the following question correctly in order to win a most fabulous prize:

Favorite FF? Least? There is one top prize answer, many 2nd prize, and one I REFUSE TO ASSIST OR TALK TO YOU IN XI.

BTW, if I didn't mention it, character name is Saraodomin.

Oh, and if you haven't started yet you should totally pick a different nation and I'll do the missions with you for sure lol.... I can help you with Sandy, but I've been looking for a reason to do the other 2 nations lol

welcome to Final fantasy XI,
you will learn that just becasue the wiki and forms say it can be done with this setup or that. its not always true. you will also hopefully learn that final fantasy while it is so easy to xp and gain levels now. getting mission and quest help can be hard. you can always xp, choose to do quests and missions over xping everytime u can.
respect your LS and friends and they will always cover your back. and the one thing so often forgotten until you descide to beat Maat a name u will learn to hate is. "are you skills Capped?" take the time to recap your skill every so often. you will thank me later for it.

while it is tempting to want to craft. at a low level dont do it. you need every gil you can get to keep yourself afloat. burning it on crafting only slows you down farther. wait till your about 40-50 depending on job. and learn were to farm the materials then start to craft. before then. if its not nailed down freaking sale it, sale sale sale sale sale. got it? good

and as a curtisy. t oyourself and others remember. when u ask for help know what u need help doing and everything u need to have it done. try to have al lthe pre work done so the helppers simply are in and out. ther time is just as valuable as yours. waiting 45 mins casue u dont got a bee chip and have to farm one. will only casue them notto wantot help you in the future.

remember dont over ask for help, space it out a little, thank those what do help. and always always always help those who need help. for someday tehy will help you when needed.

these are my words of wisdom to you newbie. i hope one or 2 stick. how ever misspelled they may be. if u need help and im avaliable i will help if i can.
enjoy your time and have fun.

p.s to anwser the question pur forth to you.
best FFVII
worse FFX2 (i took it back lol)

Well for favorite FF game (opinion- Don't burn down my mog house j/k) FF IV, I love the main character being a Dark Knight :)

Least favorite would be FF X, not a fan of the leveling system or the whole Sin idea.

I already began in Sandoria, and managed to get the first mission done.

I will keep all those tips in mind Mega, thank you. Oh and the only crafting I have done was with the introduction NPC.

Other than that I am having great fun leveling the Monk Job. Thanks for the tips and the help offers guys. At the same time I hope to assist you some day as well.

Happy New Year ^^

IV is one of my favorites as well, just wish you didn't have to turn pld -_-

(I actually like pld in XI, but I didn't like losing drk in IV lol)


Anyway make sure you get above level 10 so I can level sync to you lol

Well I managed to get level 15 with my Monk and am more than willing to party!

Also I have been hunting Leaping Lizzy with an LS friend, 0/4 so far :(

And SillyXSara the DRK into PLD switch caught me off guard, two big thumbs down for Cecil.

Mega, did you go from 1 to 50 on RNG?

Also, don't you guys realize that if Cecil didn't become a PLD, Zeromus would have won? It was the purity of KluYa's blessing granted to Cecil that allowed him to defeat the hatred of Zeromus. A DRK's power comes from hatred and evil emotions - Cecil, even pure hearted as he was, would eventually have been corrupted. Many people in the game hint at this.

If it makes you feel better, in Dissidia, Cecil is shown to have retained his DRK powers and can switch between the 2 as needed.

It's true that he switched to save the world, but I am too much of a DRK fan boy and I felt betrayed when it happened :(

no i was already 37 . used ot for a sub for my sam for a time

SAM/RNG + soboro = Sidewinder Spamage
worked rather well, i have since been leveling it from time to time. i hit lvl 50 friday. and went and completed all my af saturday. since my axe, sword, dagger and archery are capped from other jobs. ive been level syncing with a friend here and there. then every 10 levels ill go recap marksmenship. so im not gimped later. ill pretty much be able to do that up until ooo 70 when my archry surpaces my SAM level so then ill spend a day or two capping it. then i get the job of doing not 1 but 3 WS quests. Archery, marksmenship , then Nyzul isle one at 75. happy happy joy joy but hey i got nothign elseto really do lol.

I'm more of a reader than a poster on these forums and just returned from a long break due to work related stuff.

Anyways just wanted to offer additional help if it's ever needed - My username here is my character name in-game. Always up for meeting new players after a break that leaves me with a broken pearl XD.




EDIT: Urgh and my character profile on here needs a BIG update... 74PLD 37WAR/NIN 30RDM/DNC and a smattering of other jobs around levels 10-20 and I'm thinking of BRD as a possible next job to 75 once DNC and RDM are 37

I love making silly giant sigs...i even have a big green banner!

And sara, you dont have to spend money leveling COR. Someone on this board did 1-75 using nothing but darts to pull and buffing. You could even skill up marksmanship on the cheap with **** bolts on DRK.

That was Fynlar, and he level synced the whole time. I think he either stayed in Qufim or E.Ron(S). His justification being that in those levels, Gun DOT is negligible.

and things like that are whats wrong with ffxi these days. people dont level ther weapons or use armor worth a crap. most of my comunity ls doesnt even go past the dunes. they just level sync there over and over and over. while yes it is there choice. and it somewhat only hurts themselfs. which is cool. but i sware.

i laugh my **** off when i hear /dnc is the best sub ever. yea then why are you dead? and i will say its good for soloing and in campaign for most part. its wtf are you thinking in a party. if i wanted you to cure yourself i would of got you to come as a mage not a DD. your swinging a 2 handed weapon. so if u hit your weapon delay means its hitting u 2-3 times before you swing again. so your fighting a losing battle unless your fighting lower level mobs. but then if your fighting a lower level monster your not getting but 45-75 xp per kill. unless your using a ring or foving or doing both at once. so in the time it takes you to get o lets say 2k xp. a real party would of netted you 5-9k+.

but hey it keeps them out of my hair. i almost wet my pants the other day when a guy i know went after maat as a MNK poor guy never had a chance. couldnt hit him, gimped h2h, and maat never missed him. super gimped evasion. but take my advice if your going to be a level sync junkie stand in wg a few hours wait for a besiged and recap your skills. it saves u from having to o lets say encress thos skil by 175-200 points ay 70 lololololol

ive become the bitter old man of ffxi!!!!
slow down u little bas*ards, get off my lawn u little *hits, Stop feeding my moogle *unt St*ins, back in the day i remember when there was no moogles in selbina or mhuara. i remember when before u hit a level all your skill were capped. i remeber when a gimped sub job was enough to get you kicked from a party and to become the laughing stock of a group. i remember when mages actually cured people instead of "but i can mellee i got a staff". get your a$$ to the back of the buss and stop feeding the mob tp you pansey /slap....
kids today i sware /em shakes fists... now were my copy of the vanideal times... litt t*rd heads. ther all gimmy gimmy gimmy never happy with nothin. one day mark my words youll finally get it..... but then it wil lbe to late.
/laugh
/laugh
/laugh
/cough /
em grabs chest...
/em looks to the heavens
/em eyes get wide
/em farts.

wooo close on thought that was the kicker......

lol peace out home fries
