Hey bud. If you are looking to come back might be better to do a server transfer to Phoenix and join Reformation. http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=10&mid=1303077877175158046
They seem very friendly towards returning players. Played FFXI since 2003. A friend at uni talked me into going back after the fail that was FFXIV. Need a distraction until Guild Wars 2/The Old Republic. My character was hacked and stolen so I will be starting over also (was always a taru at heart anyway).
I actually for some reason remember your character name from way back. Will be hard to say goodbye to Sylph, but then again most of my friends have moved on to other games anyway.
Unless Fiendishone still plays....then i might stay XDXDXD
