I just rejoined the game after a bit of a break. I mostly rejoined because I heard that the game is not as time consuming as it used to be, which is great. I did try FFXIV when it came out and face-palmed miserably like all the other people who bought that steaming pile of.... well, let's keep it polite.
I used to play on Valefor, but it seems most of my friends are gone. I decided to start fresh on Phoenix, after hearing that the server seems to be pretty friendly. So far, I really like it here.
Today I was leveling outside Windurst, when I saw another character at my level(13) who also didn't have a subjob. It was an Elvaan warrior still wearing his level one RSE, and a sword. I chuckled a little and invited him to group. We chatted and had a good time leveling up in the Canyon. Once we hit 18, I knew we should focus on getting our subjob items.
After going back to Windurst and selling crystals, and getting new gear, I saw a high level Summoner with their flag for LFG. His name was Partie. My main used to be Summoner, and I plan to get it back as soon as I have my Red Mage high enough to solo all the painful fights I need to go through, (Carby Mitts, Avatar Primes, etc). So I politely told him that myself and my friend were looking for help with the subjob quest. Sure enough, he said alright.
Now, I could go on about how cool he was. How he not only got both of us our subjob items. Or that he killed a NM and gave me the drop, which was a really cool staff with a cure%+ on it. Or how he stayed after we got our subjobs and helped us level a little bit more, just to try and get us to an even 20. Or even how as he was just fooling around, he split the sky open and shot lazors out of it. They were all like, "pew pew pew," and the leech went, "O.O ****, just take it!" and dropped a Carbuncle's Ruby for me. :D
But what I wanted to point out was that he is a really cool guy that took time to help people who couldn't even offer him anything. He already has everything a summoner could want, just short of AF3+2. He even has that damned bath-robe.... (Slightly jealous about the YYR). So I'm very happy I chose Phoenix. Thank you, Partie, for helping a couple of noobs get their subjobs.
All of that said.... Are there any LS's out there that still do old missions? I'm looking for a LS that has a strong community with good-natured players that might help me get set up. (Kazham Keys, Rank 5, etc). I pull my own weight, and don't mind helping others. Just the problem is I need to get higher level before I can help anyone else.
I've heard about the Reformation ls, but I haven't seen anyone on.
If anyone wants a Rdm, (going to main Summoner once I get my RDM high enough to spruce it up), please give me a /tell.
Heartfire, reporting for duty. :D
