Hi everyone. Just would like to introduce myself. I started FFXI a few days ago on Remora. My character's name is Astarion, currently a LV11 Hume Red Mage from Bastok. Just wondering if there are any low level players in the same area that would like to play sometime. I'm only new to the game so you'll have to excuse me if I don't know a lot about the game hehe.. ;) I've been reading many stickies on the RDM forum so I know the basics.
Anyway, got some questions. I really enjoy playing as RDM, but I don't know if I want to take it as my main job. Are they still popular these days? Are RDMs still get decent invites for parties?
Also, do players still do the dunes from 10-20? Or they not as popular anymore? Would I have trouble finding a party as a RDM without a sub?
And how is Remora as a server, compared to the others? Also, I live in Sydney Australia. Do we have any Australian players, or players from a similar timezone here?
I've been trying to farm crystals to make some money... but quickly blew them on just updating gear. Are there any other ways to make some dough early on?
Anyway, I hope you'll come and say hi if you see me around. ;) Maybe we can play sometime. ;)
