Who wants Barry back?...Follow

So.. yeah. I took a few years off computer games. Came back for Diablo 3.. but it kinda sucks. Then I got the sudden urge to check out FFXI again. So, a few questions, if you will.

Anyone I know still around? I was in theForgottenShadows, quit right before they merged with FA.

Is it plausible to start from scratch nowadays? I gave my account to a buddy before I quit, no idea what he did with it, no idea how to contact him. (If anyone knows where I can find Porksaladelite, let me know lol)

And I guess most importantly of all.. is it worth it? Think the game has much life left in it? Server populations still decent? I know they've done some merges, i'm sure that helps. (Or maybe it hurts.. I don't know really.)

Well.. if anyone recognizes the name, (yeah, the little Taru RDM/BRD/THF/BLU that was usually dependable for some fun times and awkward moments), let me know.

-Barryburton

To clarify, by "is it plausible to start from scratch," i mean with all the new content, level cap being 99, all that jazz. And the in-game economy, which was getting a lot better when I left, so hopefully it's pretty leveled off by now.

I didn't know you personally, but I saw you around back in the day.

Soloing is incredibly easy these days. EXP earned from defeating enemies was increased. I think it was doubled. They also added Fields of Valor and Grounds of Valor. When I returned this year, I used Grounds of Valor to level sub jobs to 49. I was averaging about 5k/hr through casual soloing.

At level 30, you can enter Abyssea, but you won't be able to contribute to an EXP party unless you are the designated box opener. If you know someone that can get you in a group, you could go from 30 to 99 in less than a week.

Come back~~

Maybe you can log onto to your old account and just take it back if he's not using it? Ok, so it's not nice, but better than having to spend the time doing all your missions... >.>;;

SUS!

I tried.. I remember my POL ID, but the password is changed. I'm trying to contact SE to see if they'll restore it, but I don't think they will. Support chat goes up in a few minutes, so we'll see. But either way, I bought the bundle off of the SE website, so i'm coming back one way or another. Only thing is they didn't send me a POL registration code.. so i'm kinda stuck haha.

What is your name going to be? If I catch you online, I'll friend you. :D
I'll have to warn you though, I'm super busy right now with work and real life (I have a cute niece that I'm addicted to) that I only come online to play when I'm on my exercise bike late at night. >.>;;

My new in-game name is..

Get ready for it, I really took it in a different direction than my old character..

Barryburtonn.

That extra "n" makes it edgy.

I don't think I'd be able to remember that extra letter. Why'd you have to make it so difficult?! :(

Ah I remember you, mainly because it was two days ago. :D

Thanks for unintentionally providing me with a healing skill level! Thought the name looked familiar, but I just wrote it off as reminding me of Jack Burton or something. Hope to cross paths with ya again sometime.

I'm downloading that 8 hour long update now as we speak. If you need any help Barry ol' boy, send me a tell. I could use something to do when I return to get back into the swing of things.
