I used to play this game from when it first came out in Canada until just after the release of ToAU, at the time i had unlocked every job and dabbled in almost all of them but never got any higher than level 32 (BLM). at the time it was my first MMO and i was struggling to get the hang of party mechanics as well as enter the whole community aspect of a Linkshell. eventually life got too busy and i stopped playing.
During the 4 years i was in hiatus i have since played WoW and FFXIV (currently waiting for them to fix that last one...) and gained a lot of useful experience in how to group and so on. While i was playing FFXIV i kept remembering how much there was to do in FFXI and how much i did enjoy it at the time and decided to reactivate my account and make use of how i have evolved as a gamer since then.
That being said i want to find a helpful Linkshell that wont mind answering some of my (sometimes stupid sounding) questions, and possibly giving me a hand to get to endgame content (no required but appreciated) as i dont know how difficult it will be for me to gain exp early in the game (1-50?). but most of all i would like some companionship while i muddle my way through the early stages of the game.
I am a fairly easy going guy, good sense of humor (my previous chr was a tarutaru from sandy, his back story was; both my parents were elvann: my dad thinks my mom was cheating on him.) i like long walks on the beach.... nm wrong promo... I learn quickly all i need is a nudge in the right direction (calling someone a noob has never in the history of the word ever made anyone play better)
My ingame chr on this server was started last night since i was unable to retrieve my old chr so i will need to start from scratch, her name is Tanika. with all i have forgotten about this game i figured it best to start from scratch anyway. even after FFXIV takes off (if it ever does) i will still be playing this game as long as i can find a good group of people to keep me wanting to come back, as if the game its self wont do that but i hope you understand what i mean. i live on the west coast (PST) and am mostly online in the evenings after 9pm PST when my kids go to bed and i can play unhindered. i have lots of time on the weekends to play as i have a steady 8am-4:30pm Monday to Friday job so i can be on at a consistent time. if you require any further information please send me a message on here or reply to this thread.
Thanks for taking the time to read my wordy, lengthy post and i hope to catch someones attention soonish. take care and happy gobbie hunting!
