Ultros - Balick Degare
We have a TINFS linkshell going, if anyone feels like rolling an alt or something on Ultros. You can pst anyone in it - they're all set as leaders and can send invites.
Also note that FFXIV implemented two guild types. Linkshells are essentially chat groups, with Free Companies being the more traditional guilds. But you can be in up to 8 LSs at a time, which is really nice. It essentially means you don't need to lose contact with other players, just because you want to change guilds.
And crafting/gathering are really, really well done. Since they actually turned them into classes (Goldsmith, Miner, etc.), you get abilities that you can use to affect the item. It mostly revolves around this minigame where you buff your quality as high as you can in order to get higher chances for an HQ yield (and you get better experience the higher the quality gauge goes).
It's actually interesting to craft now. It's not just a game of finding out how many of <insert mats> you need to get the maximum possible skill-ups from <insert item> and then hitting the craft button while you go make a sandwich. The fact that the crafts can make practical items helps.
It'll be close, but Romney has the momentum.
