Well, it has taken me seven years and a lot of work… but, IM BACK!!!
Hey guys, my friend and I are prepping to play FFXI once again and I would like to ask some of you for a little assistance. First, just let me say that I have read all of your threads for returning players and I am so grateful to those of you who wrote those. However, I did have a few questions for anyone kind enough to answer them
When we left, my friend and I were fairly famous in the game; especially my friend. At the time of her departure she was a premium member of Nudawn Linkshell and had three lvl 75 jobs. I was planning to enter Nudawn very soon. Unfortunately, we had to quit FFXI for a while, but we are back. Some of you may know my friend by reputation, her name was:
She was a known friend of Thavock and has asked me to extend a greeting to a few of her friends:
These were just a few of her friends who she would like to contact when we start playing (should be this week) and we are both looking forward to playing again.
So there’s my friend’s message. Now for mine:
I read all the forums but I still have just a few questions:
1.) Someone mentioned something about a slight lack of low-to-mid level job characters with which to party (particularly in Valcrum and Quifim and other lower level areas.)
Could someone please elaborate upon the exact extent of this problem? How hard is it to find a low level party right now?
2.) Compared to 6 or 7 years ago, how many players does ffxi currently hold consistantly?
3.) Not a question, but I think I may know why not very many new players have been joining FFXI:
It was a freaking act of congress to get the game. We had to buy most of it online and it took us three weeks to finally round up everything we needed. For those of you who own game stores: FFXI would probably be a bit more crowded if game stores actually carried it. Lol
Anyways, thanks for all the help in advance guys!
