I have a great LS on Valefor. I'm the leader and I help new people who are just starting up. It only costs 10,000 gil to join and every week depending on your level you pay a certain amount of gil to remain in the LS.
I know what your thinking..."Paying gil to be in an LS?" Well in my LS we help you all the time. We provide power leveling and we have a forum that has guides on any questions you may have.
Currently I have 35 members who pay an average of 5,000 gil to 25,000 gil a week to be in our linkshell. The more gil you pay the more help you get.
Another great thing about this LS is we have a equipment mule you can use. Say your level 10, you can pay to rent the equipment really cheap. Instead of buying equipment and losing your money..you can rent it from our equipment mule for half the cost of the armor. Of course you must return it or we keep your deposit.
Anyways so far this LS has made me very happy and some of the sub leaders very happy.
Another good thing about this LS is, if you recruit 5 new members, you get a gil bonus and a weekly salary. The more people your recruit the more we pay you. Its great..you can make gil.
I hope you come to Valefor and join FFXI's most successful & happy linkshell.
