Requiem of a Player's Habits...Follow

Hello Diabolos,

Some of you may know me, most of you probably don't. My current character is Lucina... But not anymore. I've had my high points in FFXI and I've had my low points, but the fact remains the same: I love playing FFXI and I love talking to the people who play it.

And that's why I'm trying to change my ways. I've had this game from the very first day it came to the US on PC; October 21, 2003. One would naturally assume that I'd at least have a character at level 50. Unfortunately for me, that's not the case. In my time on FFXI, I've had 20 characters at different times. They are: Elio, Lief (twice), Kilali (twice), Fyre (twice), Aea, Ladon (twice), Zypher (twice), Eli, Toba, Laruto, Zeza (twice), Surioan, Hobs and Lucina. Lucina is the farthest I've ever taken a character. She's currently a 40 BLM. Because of that, she's not going to be deleted. However, I did make a new character. This guy, Aaron, is going to be it...

This thread is about me getting rid of old habits, though. So I'd like to start on that. I'd like to first apologize to people that I've hurt in the past. There's really only two of them, but that doesn't make them any less important.
Magnus: I'm sorry about the "..." thing.
Yukaiyuki: I'm sorry about the static mix-up. Please understand that it was a mistake on my part.

Because of me being so picky about my character, most, if not all of you will say that this game isn't for me... I'd just like to say that you're all wrong. I can play this game, I've just had trouble getting a character I like and it's just taken a year and a half to get one. It's true though, I have thought about quitting this game many times in the past (please don't say "Just do it already then."), but there are some people who've kept me around.
Burli: Probably my best friend in this game. He absolutely rocks.
Masamin: Best Taru SAM in the land. Great to talk to when something's on my mind.
Raylin: You've kept me going strong. Thanks.
Xanthro: My newest friend, but still one of my best. He's the one who inspired this revelation.

Like I said, Aaron is going to be like a fresh start for me (excluding, of course, all the other characters I've had). I've looked at all the bad things and bad habits I've had in the past. Aaron is going to be my attempt at changing all of those things. It'll be my change to make new friends my level and to finally get somewhere in this game. My goal, for Aaron, is to level PLD to level 60. After that, things are just up in the air. I haven't decided.

Doing the leveling isn't going to be easy. I currently have no LS on Lucina or Aaron, so I only have my Friend's List to lean by. I'm not begging for a LS, though, so don't say that I am. With as hard as this is going to be for me, I'd just like to ask for some support from you guys. I don't mean handing me money or anything, I'd just like a friendly /tell here or there. Having all of Diabolos behind me on his would really help. =)

That's pretty much it. Currently, Aaron is a level 7 MNK, about @1000. I know that this hasn't really been the most exciting topic ever, but I just thought that I'd throw it out there. I hope that it hasn't been a huge waste of your time. See you all in the game. =)

Hope you stick at it Aaron! I think everyone has their stages in this game, I'm at the one where I want to level every job as much as the other...same principle, kinda, but maybe not quite as drastic. :P Anyways, I hope to see you around! It was a little strange when you said you knew Burli (who happens to be one of my best friends too...hey! Mr. Popular!) as a level 9 MNK main/no sub XP, but I hope that what you have experienced so far will help with your experience this time round! You already had macro's, thats a start.

I hope that you can settle now, and really start to play! It only gets better, y'know! :) If you any need any help with sub job quest, kazham keys, rank missions etc, just give me a holla! Take care bud.

And I'll drag you kicking and screaming to your goal if it kills me, or you Smiley: tongue

I'm very glad you've had this revelation, you know for a fact everytime you made a new character I was Smiley: banghead'ing quite profusively.

You can do eeet!

Yeah. You've always been there for me B! And yes, you can drag one leg and Raylin will drag the other! It'll work perfectly. You and her are two ... and I have two legs! Perfect I say. Anyone else, please feel free to join in with the dragging. I'm sure we can attached caribeaners to my body for you to drag me by. =)

Just going to give a little update on Aaron.

Currently: Level 10 MNK with good equipment for the level (Yay.)

I'm soloing until I can get a party. =)
Unfortunately, that party will be in the Dunes. =(
If I do get a party, I'll go ahead and drag them to the Maze. Muuuuuch better.

Phew. I haven't been on for awhile, I know, and I'm sorry!

I've had a little tuft with my parents and they aren't very happy, so no computer for me (AOL? KILL!).

I probably won't be playing for a LONG time now though. Another week or so...

Saturday, thankfully, I hit level 14 with the help of Xanthro. Thank you, Xanthro, you rock, so-on, so-forth, etc. =)

I will be able to drop in for a few minutes a day though, so see you all in game.. for a little anyways. =)
