Returning FFXI PlayerFollow

Hey there everyone. Just signed up for these forums. I have been playing FFXI on and off (mostly off!) since the PS2 version came out, and have recently gotten back into it. But the population has thinned considerably since I was really into it and running around goofing off solo sucks most of the time with no one to talk to. I want to meet some people and actually make my time in FFXI a social experience instead of a boring solo campaign. Feel free to message me in-game or here. Looking forward to meeting new people to adventure with!

Yeah, i took a little bit of a break and i was even surprised with the population thinning. I wish i could tell you of a social linkshell that is flourishing, but i am currently linkshell-less myself. Haha

Feel free to talk to me in game.

My shell is pretty barren these days too. I've thought of seeking another but I just don't feel up to it...

I'll be sure to look you guys up when I get on, which can be sporadic between 2 jobs and a wife and kids. Thanks!

Same thing with me. Haven't played in years and I'm soloing to 18 because no one is around. Feel free to contact me. Could use some help for the subjob quest.

Well I started over after 3+ year break. Sadly I miss my 92 goldsmithing >.<.

When I first started again I was lucky I had a friend that was in a big social shell so I got a pearl right when I started again. Sadly it was a little to big and just never felt connected. I also play with my girlfriend so I was never truly alone in the ffxi world. She was able to reactivate her account unlike me who started over. Now a few of my ingame friend from the past started playing again and we made our old ls from before we all quit. Going on 6 members strong lol.

All my rambling aside level sync is awesome but it does have a negative in that you don't party with the same people day in and out like you used to back in the days, I feel that that made strong bonds. On a positive lfg all hrs on end blew. I've made a few new friends since starting over but not like before.

So I'll add to the post as I'm always up to meeting new people. I've seen Lleh a handful of times on my mules. My game time is somewhat limited and I do get caught doing stuff with my small ls a lot but feel free to send a tell maybe we can do something.

Overall I think the game is better now just much harder to make new friends now which leave a deep feeling of empty inside. doesn't help that people don't check forums anymore on any of the ffxi site well with this server at least. Once you have friends to do stuff with this game becomes as addictive as it was before.

Hey, just returned to FFXI and starting from scratch on Ramuh with a brand new character. I haven't played in years and am looking for a new group of people to enjoy the game with. There looks to be some cool new content and it be cool to go through the game with folks who are starting out from the beginning as well.


If any social and leveling linkshells are recruiting, definitely send me a tell or message. Trying to really enjoy the content this go round instead of doing a mad leveling dash to 75.

My in-game name is Kansuke, Galka 15 War. I'm usually on in the evenings, like 4pm eastern time. Started about 2 days ago and this should be fun.

Welcome back. There are is tons of new stuff on top of that fixed many old issues that existed. I have little to complain about when it comes to this game overall if you have/make friends it's a fun game. Feel free to look me up in game always looking to meet new people however I do get caught up with my ls so at times I might not be all the talkative.

I miss the good old days of XI when there was a minimum if 5k people on and the most I've seen now is 2k. Well I've been playing off and on leveling my ninja up. And haven't really talked to a single soul. If anyone is still playing send me a message my char name is Soulfire

Seems a lot of people have win 7 problems with FFXI, mostly on desktops for whatever reason while others experience no issues at all. That being said I don't want to highjack the tread with my comp issues that I think I resolved.

I am a returning player as well. I have never been to a high level, never unlocked any of the other jobs than the basic 6 but I used to have a lot of fun with previous Linkshells.

Games seems empty without friends to have fun with while doing missions and level up...or just chilling in the chat.

Please add me to your friend's list.

In game = Mightycat

I speak french, english and spanish(functional)

Hello peoples, I started playing FFXi back when it first came out early this decade and i constantly think of returning to the game but Ramuh seemed desolate and uncaring. Id like to get into a linkshell as soon as i return. I have a DRK that is dangerously close to 60 and i have some AF gear and Vassagos scythe so im not quite the normal noob. Im just a pothead so ive smoked it all away in the past years. I have fishing up and alchemy up so id also be a helpful addition.

I hope i see some of you in game.

Check the link in the sig might interest you either way welcome back. It;s harder to meet players now but it's far from dead imo. The forums however are dead I end up talking to myself on the forums lol.

Hey guys, I too am a returning player and I face pretty much the same/similar issue - I've been away for a year and a half and in this time, my old LS has broken up, people either stopped playing or joined end game linkshells. Bad news for someone whose highest job is level 60 :)
As everyone knows, this game is not a whole lot of fun if you're only playing by yourself so I too am looking for a social linkshell. Are there any with people active in the EU time zone? This Galka could really use some friend and to be honest, help with missions, level limit breaks and so on ;)
In-game name is Denku, if you're bored, you know, just do /tell Denku wraghralgrrrghm

I will be returning in a month or two as well. I just hope I will be able to reactivate my account. It's only been about a year or so now. Unfortunately, it would seem that Pyohehgah
was right saying that I would be back LOL. I will look forward to meeting you all in game.

Just wanted to post something. If anyone is friends with, or knows, or has seen online Drunkenfool or Nymue, can you tell the that Trebaut will be coming back? I don't even know if they play anymore, and they don't use myspace anymore so I haven't been able to get ahold of them. Let me know if any of you find anything out.

I came back for a month because steam had the ultimate collection for $5. Not sure why but I'm on Ramuh :)

I agree that it's pretty dead. I'm up to 8 thf and 5 mnk, at least solo is much faster since I'll be soloing to 18 for SJ quest :)
