Remora: The BasicsFollow

#1 Apr 16 2006 at 12:45 PM Rating: Excellent
An attempt to replace "Welcome to Remora!" which replaced "Remora 101: Everything You Need To Know About Everything!"

Welcome!
Welcome to the Remora forum! I won't waste a lot of time explaining what this is. Hopefully if you found this forum you understand the concept. This thread exists to collect some of the popular/important threads here into one place that will (hopefully) stay relatively up-to-date.

Remora-Specific Threads
Here are some threads on this board that are specifically about our server:

The Official "Official" Remora Worldpass Thread - Look here for your Worldpass needs. Don't trust any of those other Worldpass threads. They're no longer official enough. ^^

Remora Linkshells - A list of the Linkshells active on Remora. Crimsonkain keeps it nice and up-to-date.

Remora Achievements Thread - Just accomplished one of your goals? Go on, brag! You know you want to. Smiley: grin

Remora Classifieds - If you have something to buy or sell or give away, and don't want to shout in Jeuno for days on end, post here.

Exceptional Players List - Here's where you tell everybody about that awesome tank/healer/puller/etc., or the guys who helped you through that one really tough mission or quest, or saved your **** from fifty-two goblins.

Weekend Goals - What do you want to get done this weekend? What did you get done last weekend?

Remora: "Looking Back" - Learn our roots & get a little perspective on how the server started.

blacklist - If you feel the urge to vent or rant about a player, here's the place to do it. Don't take the title literally; it's not so much a list of people to blacklist as it is a place to let off steam.

Remora Couples - Who's with who here? Lots of players have significant others who play, so here's somewhere to talk about it on Remora.

General Threads on the Remora Forum
Here are some threads that aren't specific to Remora in content, but are on our forum.

Advice Column For The Masses - Lots of good general advice that doesn't always occur to folks. It's a little outdated now, but it's a good starter thread for self-improvement.

Notorious Monsters... And You! - Detailed information on some of the popular NMs to hunt. Also a little outdated, but the information is still mostly valid and helpful.

Top Ten Ways You Know You've Wandered Into The Dunes - Valkurm Dunes. Love it or hate it, everybody has stories about the place.

General Help
This section contains useful threads Allakhazam's forums, and links to other sites, that are about the game in general.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About FFXI v2.0 - A huge compilation of other useful threads. A good starting point when you can't find a specific thread.

The Big List of Status Ailments - You've just come across a mob that used some new-fangled attack on your tank and you have no idea what it does or what gets rid of it. Check here.

Things to Dispel/The Big Finale - Two threads that tell what mob buffs do and whether they can be removed with Dispel or Magic Finale.

Vana'diel Atlas - The in-game maps, online, complete with treasure, coffer, and NM spawn points and connection points between maps.

FFXIclopedia - A wiki of FFXI information, maintained by the users. It stays up-to-date pretty well, and contains a lot of information that's quick to search through.

ffxi.cannotlinkto - Another general information site, with good databases on zones, merchants, food, etc.

FFXI MysteryTour - One of the original information sites, translated from Japanese.

MithraPride Vana'diel Clock - Timers for some of the game's regular events (in-game days, RSE, Selbina/Mhaura ferry, guild hours)

Campsitarus - A list of leveling locations for all level ranges; for those times when the spots you know of are packed with other parties.

What We're Missing
There are a few threads I haven't listed here, because they're either out-of-date or just missing entirely. If anyone has any other suggestions, post below.

-Crafters List - The most current one was maintained by Erawyn (along with the sticky), but she's moved to another server now. Any takers on starting another one?

Let me know what you think. Any suggestions appreciated.

Because it's pouring down rain here, has been all day.

Now somebody go nominate this so I don't look like a raving egomaniac. >.>

Rate up, for the time spent re-making. I submitted the sticky request. If anyone would like to second the nomination...

ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=3;mid=1145242471293136061;num=0;page=1

And it's kinda sad, I rather enjoyed thinking you were an egomaniac.

As far as suggestions go... Space it out a little more, it's crowded. The headlines are fine, the yellow is fine, but the print after it, kinda runs together into a headache-inducing paragraph-like thing. Double-spaced, or even just an empty line between every link description would do great justice I'm sure. ^^

All in all, excellent job.

~EDIT~ Whatever happened to the lovely Advice Column for the Masses? O.o I've been away for far too long.

Someone with a paid account would have to do it, because of having to search, but I believe it was in the Remora forums, and I believe it would be a nice addition but... What about that thread that listed a ton of the potential leveling spots? Like the popular ones for each level, and the alternatives, and not so popular ones? If someone could find it, even if it's not on the Remora forums, I think it'd make a nice edition under "General" just a thought. ^^

Without knowing an approximation of the thread title, the premium search isn't that great (especially if it wasn't on the Remora forum). But there's http://campsitarus.blogspot.com which is pretty much that, so I'll add that to the external links for now.
