Anyone still playing FFXI?

Post by Base » Sat Apr 21, 2012 11:40 am

So I totally caved and got a resub to FFXI, at least until GW2 comes out. Does anyone here still play at all? I'm on Carbuncle if so. I know there are a few other threads floating around but no ones posted in them for months so I figured I'd start a new thread rather than necroing shit.

Not really

Hell, you might wanna try the open beta of Terra or Phantasy Star Online 2 while you wait for GW2

Yep.

Hell, you're on Carby? So am I.

My LS seems to be somewhat inactive now (and it was active for 5+ years straight, so it's strange) so I'm not on always but I'm up for anything.

Zeno I'll be on tomorrow so hit me up in game. My characters name is Aseyu. I'm lvl 26 SAM/DNC right now, soloing and trying to find some people to help me level :P I know it can go super fast if you go to the right places...

I might be on a little bit tomorrow, but probably not much. I do need to ding my WHM up a bit, so we could hit up some Grounds of Valor for massive XP.

If you have IM, add me (details in my forum profile) if you're playing at the moment.

I'd like to also post this video I uploaded:

NECRO POST

So I resubbed again... and the game couldn't stay connected for more than a minute so I had to reinstall due to corrupt files, apparently. I've almost completed the uninstall and waiting for the file check to finish to see the fateful moment of "Will this shitty ancient game stay connected?"

Anyways, when I last left the game I had reached lvl 91 on my WAR and 22 on my RUN. They just added AF gear for RUN/GEO and also, they've added MONSTROSITY.

Monstrosity, if you don't know, is where you can take over a monsters body and control it, and level it up. You can work your way up to bosses and stuff, and there's a whole system between controlling it and fighting human players and stuff. It looks totally sweet. I might just stream it, if I can get it running stable enough.

Zeno, you still playing? Anyone interested in checking this out? I'll stream it if so.

I'm still subbed, but I'm about to switch to paying for FFXIV. The new features and expansion look great, but my LS mostly vanished and re-appeared in FFXIV so I'll burn myself out in FFXIV first.

Ah, okay. I'll probably play some FFXIV when the next beta starts but I just am not that excited for it. I dunno, I got screwed over by GW2's temporary content bullshit, so I can't feel like I can get hype for a new mmo until it has enough -permanent- content under it's belt to keep me interested. Depends on how it goes. I'm still up for showing off some FFXI stuff though, if anyone is interested in it. Do we still have the j2 tv livestream? I couldn't find a link to it anywhere...
