Besides Final Fantasy XI, what other MMORPGs have you played and how do they compare to Final Fantasy XI?
FFXI is my first, and probably last MMO, unless Rapture turns out to be good.
How did you find out about Final Fantasy XI, and when did you begin playing?
My cousin constantly talked about it and eventually got me started playing(he made me a galka monk) back in December of '04(the week before my 13th birthday). My cousin has since quit.
Do you know anyone in real life who plays Final Fantasy XI?
Like I said, my cousin did, and his older step brother still does, though I've never met the guy irl.
How did you come up with your main character's name?
Before FFXI, I was really into Bionicles. Those lego action figure guys, and I made my own and named it Theytak. I also had one named Kayfe(my mule) and Jinte(my Alla account).
What is your favorite job and why?
That's really tough. I love playing Pup because of how versatile it can be, but Warrior fits my personality like a glove.
Which forum(s) do you frequent the most?
FFXI main, and The Monk, Warrior, and Puppetmaster forums. I also skim the FFXI feedback, Scholar, and Corsair forums( the jobs I'm leveling after Pup and Pld).
About how often do you play Final Fantasy XI and how long is a typical playing session for you?
Depends on the time of year. During the summer, I play all day almost every day. During the School year I usually only play on Friday/Saturday, occasionally Sunday.
How do you spend your time in game?
Either sitting in my MH not doing anything, soloing something, campaigning, or partying with my LS.
Do you craft? If so, what are your skill levels?
Theytak has cooking at 70 with a couple key items and cloth craft at 52. I also work on fishing from time to time, it's at 21. On Cheddarjack, I've got 21 alchemy that I'm leveling to make bullets with for Cor.
Approximately how much of Vana'diel have you experienced?
Hmmm, I'm not really into endgame, outside of Dynamis, and I've fought Dynamis Lord. I'm only on CoP 2-5, so there's a bunch of CoP zones I haven't seen. I doubt I've even seen half of what Vana'diel has to offer, really.
What is your favorite expansion?
Wings of the Goddess. The entire concept is just awesome, and Campaign is pretty epic. I'm also a Lilisette Fanboy ;;>_>
What is your least favorite expansion?
Treasures of Aht Urgan. I loved Bibiki bay, and I swear if I ever meet the people that thought imps and colibri were good ideas, there's gonna be a bloody mess for someone to clean up...
How far have you progressed in missions?
Sandy 7-1, RoZ: beat DM, CoP: mammets(2-5), ToAU: Shield of Diplomacy(22?), WotG: the CS in La Vaule.
What is your favorite zone?
The Sanctuary of Zi'Tah. The entire zone is just cool.
Who is your NPC hero and why?
Ghatsad. The fact that he invented the automatons and continues to invent things for them is just awesome.
If Shantotto was your mom, give a good excuse for coming home 6 hours after curfew.
I was... um... er... was... uh... PLEASE DON'T HURT ME!!!
I was out because you gave me a staff and I wanted to break it for a laugh So I went and found some Yagudos and proceeded to crush their taloned toes!
Describe your most memorable moment or proudest accomplishment in game.
Way to many. There was the time way back before I got my subjob, where I was getting PLd in the highlands by some dude, and all of the sudden Steelfleece pops and just lays waste ot everyone in the zone. Then there was the time when I duo'd bloodlapper down from 40% after the mages died, using a thf kiting and me chi blasting w/o any chiblasting gear. You know, after almost 4 years, I've had tons of adventures, and writing them all down would take ages, lol.
What is the largest amount of gil you have ever had at one time, and how did you go about accumulating it?
I had a mil at one point a while back, but I honestly don't remember how I got it.
What are some things you would change or implement in order to improve Final Fantasy XI?
The main problem with FFXI isn't the game, it's the players. However, I would lower Activate's recast time.
If you were stranded on Purgonorgo Isle what 5 items would you most want to have with you?
My linkshell, Tocadie, a knife of some sort, a fishing rod and fire crystals.
How do you describe Final Fantasy XI to your coworkers or computer-illiterate friends?
I don't, lol.
What is next for you in the world of Final Fantasy XI?
Getting pup to 75.
