I am starting a LS for people new to the game. Anyone can join, if you are high level and
would like to pop on to help great, if you are new to the game and need help great. Open LS Anyone can join.

I looked at this forum and noticed that there are a lot of new players looking for help so I decided to do this because I know that that help is hard to find. It is hard to find partys so it will also help to be in an ls with lots of new people.

Anyways just send me (Mattis) a tell in game and I will get you a pearl.

Seriously?

I retired in April of 2010, almost a year ago now. The only reason I can remember that it was on the 5th was because my retirement post is still on the first page of this forum that loads up in my browser. I left in part, because of a decline in people (but the six hour invite waits for DDs had more to do with it). Now you're telling me, there are noobs again? Real honest to goodness noobs?!?!?! We're not talking "noob" in the sense of the guy who's just a moron, but actual, real, 100% bonified noobs?!?!?!

If this game got a second wind, and lowered the gamer fees, I'd be tempted to come back and level my BST again. Heck! If they can fix LFG waits for people, I may play other jobs again too!

...or is this a false alarm, and I shouldn't get my hopes up?

Abyssea really pumped some new life into FFXI and with this new update about to change non-abyssea xp accumulation, it's going to be even better. In the last 9 years I have been playing, now is really an exciting and more fun time in the game that in previous years.

Just the other night, I took my RDM from 60 to 72 in a couple of hours. No exaggeration there at all, literally two hours and I was there.

Give it a try, it's a blast compared to the old days!

It will still be hard to find a party, but thats why I started this.

I do suggest coming back though if you enjoyed the game, like the above poster stated it
is only getting better.

And yes there are real noobs i am helping two people get SJ in this ls now, would have happened already except they needed to get 18 first.

Hope to see you come back, if you do you have an open invite to my LS if you wish.

I've been toying with the idea of returning this spring. WoW is getting boring again and the community is terrible with some people providing a few exceptions. The overwhelming majority of people in WoW have these self-inflated egos that they're all the master of whatever job they're playing, and they may be that good when soloing, but when it comes to teamwork NOBODY IN THAT GAME HAS A DAMN CLUE! What makes WoW even more depressing is that (I play Druid so this is where I'm coming from) the developers seem to have a hard time grasping party mechanics too. In the last few patches they nerfed the healers and tanks, but tweaked damage? Seems like Blizzard needs to come down off the acid trip now.

My crying aside, I'm between coming back to FFXI and leveling some of my old 75 jobs, FFXIV, and DC Universe Online (As a kid I was an immense comic book nerd).

Alliam, you know why I have to ask you this (because you said you were on RDM), how long are you spending LFG on DD jobs? Is the exp better now for all jobs, but DDs spend the whole day in campaign still?

All I know is that yesterday I logged on and put my flag up as 72 RDM and in 2hrs I was 77 when I had to go. Abyssea has definitely taken over when it comes to lfg 70+ in my opinion. As usual though it all depends on who's online doing what but most of the time there is always alliances in abyssea and someone needs a replacement. Solo wise it's about to change with the next update so I am interested to see what they do to focus on below 70 because I have a few jobs I need to bring up to par...

Hey I just got back yesterday. Id like a pearl hit me up my Taru name is Stephane

Wlnthorp, from my experience since all I have is mnk as soon as I put my flag up I have gotten invites into abysea alliances. That is one good thing about abysea is it is usually alliances and not just parties of 6 so more people get a shot at getting in one. Also it seems that a few SDS members are coming back, I know Marti and Tmlee are back, Summons is on his way back, and Demonchilde seems to be coming back in the near future.

Yes, Marti and I came back to FFXI. I had enough of the idiots in wow to last me the rest of my life. And we found a way for them to accept our credit card. Regg came back last nite. Summon is back, manchu is back..again, lol I think mystief will be back soon.

Its been quite interesting to say the least. Alot of the old areas seem real dead but abyssea is where it all is now. Took my 34 thf to 90 in like week and a half. We have enough people on it is easy to put together an exp group.

Anyhow, hit martimo or me up in game if you come back wln!

This offer still standing? I'm looking for a social LS really. Starting back later tonight. Still haven't picked a server. As long as there are people on at all times and they're talkative, I'm game.

I'm an old player and returned Dec '10.

I'm not lvl 75+ on any job, I've not completed even 80% of missions, BUT i will help out anyone who asks! I'm currently helping out a noob new player who joined in Feb '11.

So please hit me up with a pearl and if not, anyone who needs help leveling/missions/quests etc etc I will lend a hand!

/tell Trella

I absolutely will, that is if the servers ever come back up, With the news coming out now I believe it will be a lot
longer then A week. If the have a complete meltdown the servers are going to be forever lost in abandoned uninhabitable land.

But regardless if the severs ever come back up I will defiantly send tell for pearl.

Hey, I'm making my return to XI in a week or so and this LS sounds perfect. I made it to lvl 40 or so on my SAM back in 08 but I never REALLY got into the game. With all this new stuff thats been added I can see I'm really going to need help getting on my feet but I have a couple questions.

Is Fenrir well populated?

Which nation is the most dominant?

Hello all, I am yet another FFXI player returning after a 4 year break. Before that I played from day 1. Lots to wrap my head around right now and figure out what I need to do to catch up. Character names are Gaignun and Kunkey. Hope to see you all around!

Another returning player here, however I'm going to be one of the immigrants from Unicorn when they open up character reactivation again (looks like it won't be till May 10th at the earliest D:)

Anyways, I have a few 75 jobs myself and will be bringing three friends with me. We will definitely be looking for an LS after the mergers finish, so if this offer is still standing I'll look you up.

Returning for the first time since 2006. New account as I can't remember my old account details from that far back - but nice to see some people coming back and pumping some life into what I think is one the better made MMO's out there.

I'll see you guys on there once steam is finished downloading the game/installing and then the patching process.

I'm coming back after several years and was really shocked by the empty the cities and auction houses were. A linkshell like this might be exactly what it takes to keep the game fun. My main is a 41 DRK but I'm really interested in raising a BLU. I also have a friend starting the game when the new edition comes out later this month so I'd definitely like a pearl. I'll send you a tell when I'm on tomorrow, name's Atmaragnarok.

I just came back from an 8 month hiatus and found out that my current LS is wiped out. I'd like to join another one if possible. Character name is Blaike, been playing off and on since just after NA release, but never made it to 75.

I know you all have missed me so much. I'm back after a 3+ year hiatus, so I'm sure most of you don't even know who I am. Anyway, I need an LS, so if someone could hit up Matera (75WHM), I'd be grateful. I'll probably be around trying to level my SCH subjob.

Hello, all. I'm not exactly a new NEW player, but I am most defiantly looking for a good, reliable LS to join. I took a little break from FFXI, and now that I'm back my former LS is gone. I'm looking forward to really picking FFXI again =)

Hey! I'd definitely be down. I played from release onward 'til a little after ToAU came out. I haven't played since then, but I'm extremely tempted to come back!

I used to have a 75WAR, 75PLD, 45MNK, 37SAM, 37THF, 37NIN. If I come back, I may start over, but we'll see. Hit me up!
