Thinking of returning tooFollow

After about 5 years of WoW, I was bored to **** with it. I've quit a few months ago and I don't miss it. I do, however, miss FFXI, which I played like 6-7 years ago. After spending about 800-900 hours in a few months I quit then, because I got tired of spending my time waiting for groups.

At that time I had an awesome LS with members like Atileana, Edicius, Iglo. And some other friends like Biggss and Emperorcyrus. I wonder if any of them is still playing.

Like I said: atm I feel like returning to the game. The problem is I don't have that much time to play like I had 6-7 years ago. 10hours a week would be the maximum. My highest class (PLD) is like lvl44 and my others (DRG, SAM, NIN, MNK) are about 30-32 if I remember correctly. I only have the basic game+RotZ expansion (will get the rest ofc, when I'm fully back in the game), none of the newer versions. And I'm rusty like ****... I've been playing MMOs, but nothing like FFXI.

So... if I should return, are there LS's willing to adopt a player like me, get me back into the game and give me a nice social home? I'm a social mature player, have a LOT of experience with MMOs. I live in The Netherlands (+1GMT), so playing times might be a problem if you're in a completely different timezone.

Well.. I'm hoping for some nice replies and perhaps an LS to call home :)
Hope to see you'll soon!

While i agree with Day, that you got away, good for you, if you want to come back, i am sure there is a Ls or 2 who will be willing to help you out.

Back when you left, things were on "hard" mode if you will.

Now the game is Set on Easy mode. You can pretty much solo a job from 1-75 with little difficulty. They have added so many things to just make the game easier.

Nomad moogles in Mhaura, selbina, we used to have a max of what, 60 Invt, 80 Storage and 80 mog house? Well now we have 80 storage with Fusnishings having up to 20 storage a piece! ( i believe manniquins have 27 or 28 now also)
You have Mog locker which caps at 80 space, 80 invt space and with the New Security feature you get the add on of Mog Satchel witch is another 80 space.

You Can get this on EACH char you have if you so choose. But the satchel goes automatically on all chars you make/have and it caps at your Current Invt space.

They have made more quests, items, made Nms less popular by Rmt, overhauled several jobs.

Things may be Quite different from when you left.

If you do decide to come back, read over the Job threads for any changes, ask questions in the specific job sections, there are several sites where you can look info up. FFXIAH is great for crafting, gear, AH prices and just checking out gear.

FFXICLOPEDIA is good for finding out most things about jobs, including starter guides, gil making tips, etc.

And Yes, you can do well with only 10 hrs a week starting out. However if you want to get involved with "endgame" where you get most of the good gear and such, you'll need more time than that, considering things like Dynamis take a solid 3-4 hours a night, and typically are done 2 times a week.

Hope this helps a bit :D

Well the game does take less time to do things now, but idk if i call it easier. Most the changes where similar to the mmo world in general, like the level syching. Should come back and enjoy !
