08-22-2005, 05:39 PM
Hey whats up? I wanted to know if anyone here plays FFXI and if so, what server, character names, race, Jobs, Levels, Linkshells, etc.
As for me:
Caitsith ( Woooot, we the best :D )
Allegiance: Sandy (San D'Oria) Rank: 6
Main Job: White Mage - 75
Black Mage - 37
Paladin - 37
NIN - 27
Red Mage - 14
Deathbecomesus (social) Invision (DynamisLS)
BCNM / KSNM Experience:
"Operation: Desert Swarm" - KSNM30 Orb. Defeated it like 12 times now. So far, no luck on Venomus Claws :(
Faught every "God" - Genbu, Seiryu, Suzaku, Byakko.
Defeated Kirin twice.
Camped Ullikummi 4 times, claimed a total of 2.
I have been moving around alot lately and I have finally settled down. I like to help out if possible. I am looking for new people to meet and hang out with, do some quests, level, etc.
Well, Lemme know. If anything, send me a tell.

Ok I don't play, but what's the highest level you can get?
08-24-2005, 07:42 AM
75. But it is so hard hitting 75. You need to do alot of quests and it requires alot of help from other people as well.
08-24-2005, 09:33 AM
Is it turn-based like most of the other Final Fantasies?
08-24-2005, 02:48 PM
I quit a while back because my wireless connection that goes to my room where the playstation is doesnt work. It would boot me after playing for like 15 minutes.
Anyways I was:
19 MNK/3 WAR
I loved being a monk. The only downside to this game is the tedious leveling.
08-24-2005, 11:52 PM
Hollow Golem: No not turn based. It is Real-Time kind of and you control everything you do.
MasterJimmy: Well, nice to know. Wish you had more luck :(

its similiar to Kingdom Hearts' battle style, where its a freemoving RPG.
id play it, seeing as i have the game, but i gotta buy the external harddrive adapter, and i dont wanna pay more for FFXI.
(i have a slim ps2)
08-25-2005, 08:09 PM
Kinda like WoW?
Also, any PvP or crafting?
08-25-2005, 08:26 PM
its similiar to WoW, from what ive heard, yeah.
no PvP, i dont think. or crafting...
but you can be a Black Mage! :D
08-25-2005, 09:45 PM
hey guys i play ffxi and it is awesome i am:
war/30 mnk/20 sam/10 rdm/6 every other job is lvl 1
linkshell: The Order of The Shield (the best LS ever!)
I am currently taking a break from the game it has been 12 days and i am going to keep on not playing for 3 more days then it is on to crafting and lvling :D
08-25-2005, 09:48 PM
Kinda like WoW?

If PvP means player vs player then yes there is player vs player its called ballistia and yes there is crafting and if you get really good at it then you become really rich
08-26-2005, 01:32 AM
Yes there is Player vs. Player. It is called Ballista.
Also, Crafting is a major part of this game's economy. You can craft just about anything. It is one of the best money source's there is and can't be overlooked.
As for what jobs you can play, here is what we have so far:
These are the ones you can pick when you start off -
These are the ones you have to unlock -
Any more questions? Any more people play this game on this forum?

I use to play. I was a Taru BlackMage/Red Mage 36/18. It was kind of fun but extremely party oriented. Also, the exp penatly when you die is too harsh.
09-03-2005, 06:24 AM
Ya know, I kinda hate it when people pos and say that they used to play. Grrrr, quitters! Lol, jk.
Well, not bad. 36 was an ok level. Yes the game is very party oriented; but that is what makes this game unique: The fact that everyone has to rely on everyone else.
It's not like other RPG's that you can be the "Ultimate" person and do everything by yourself. That isnt realistic. You do need help and this game makes you become active with players from all over the world.
As for the EXP penalties from when you are killed - At level 36, you had it easy. You should see how it is at 46-75. But, you have to realize that by your level, you should have everything down packed and shouldn't be dying that often.

Bleh I used to play, until about 3 days ago.

White Mage 10
Black Mage 5
Dark Knight 20
Total Item Value + Gil: About 12 mil
Dodge Earring x2
Drone Earring x2
Darksteel Kukri +1
Fluorite Ring x2
Bleh. I've found better things to do.
02-16-2006, 07:30 PM
Yeah, I play. I got two characters:
Main Job: 43 WHM/BLM
Linkshell: Past - TitanLightWarriors (formally anyways, but they disbanded about a year ago I guess)
Present - TheForgottenLegion
Main Job: 30 DRK/WAR
I quit about a year ago but I have come back in the past month> I found that my old character was still there, even though it said it was only going to be held for 6 months or something like that XD. I decided to use my old character as a money maker and start off harder then last time to make the game more of a challange. (Played WAR first as a Taru ^^;;) I don't craft, seeing as how I use to farm when the economy had the highest price as like, 500k. So, to see the prices jump into the 100k+ range for just about everything kind of helped me. This was because everything that I had farmed before that had also increased in price, and after comparing then and now, I actually make more money then I did a year ago (I took the new scale and the old scale of the economy and did some math to figure it out). So I can easily make 200k per farming session (roughly 1.5 hours) on either character. So, I'm very happy with the so called "bad inflation" on the Titan Server. People have just forgotten about how difficult it was to get money back in the olden days.
Btw, who's looking forward to the new expansion? I finally get to play Blue Mage, since that was orginally the job I wanted to play as 1 year ago. Of course, they didn't have it then =/.
02-17-2006, 10:03 AM
WOW, I forgot about this thread I started, LOL. I am sooo much more experienced since then. Well, look at original post and you'll see.
As for the new expansion - Yea, I'm looking forward to Blue Mage and somewhat Corsair. Can't wait for new areas, monsters, jobs, quests. Gonna be awesome!!
02-17-2006, 11:18 AM
Hmmmm...ive been thinking about coming back, alot lately.....the guy that helped me train when i was a monk has like 700 million, i guess, so we're pals and if i go back, maybe he can pay for all my spells and stuff when i start as a black mage....
hes like level 60, so he can power level me for quite some time :)
02-17-2006, 03:46 PM
What server man? If you come to Caitsith, you'd have a blast :)
02-17-2006, 07:53 PM
But I see you have maxed out your mage leveling. Be honest--How is it? I loved being a black mage, but unfortunately it only last till 17 until i quit, so i didnt get to see the wonders of subjobbing, chocobos, or the spell warp :(
02-17-2006, 10:53 PM
All mage jobs are different. I'll break it down the best and in the most interesting way I can for you.
White Mage - Great for people who like to help others. I LOVE helping other people so, this job is a blast for me. We get to heal the best, we get the ability to teleport all over Vanadiel and we raise people to life, including ourselves!
Black Mage - Awesome for people who like to "blow stuff up" ;) They also get the ability to Warp themselves to their homepoint, as well as their teammates ( at level 40 ). Strongest mages in the game when it comes to damage dealing spells. For the record, I've seen a Black Mage do 1,200 damage, so beware lol.
Red Mage - A very tough job, but freakin awesome. They have Whte Mage spells, as well as Black Mage spells, giving them a good taste of both. But what is even better, they have their own unique spells as well. Spells that recover MP over time (on the person you cast it on), they can cast Gravity and make your enemy slower, giving you time to run away. Also Red Mages are the best enfeeblers so, they get to hurt the monsters over time better than anyone. This is going to be my next 75 mage job, ::smile::
Summoner - Ahhh summoner!! Whats better than summon Ifrit and having him whoop on a monster while your other party members whoop on it as well? Or summoning Diabolos and making your party members super resistant to damage for a while? SMN packs alot of strength and supportive abilities as well.
Bard - Kind of a mage as well so, might as well throw it in. Singing songs and giving everyone in your party special effects that wil lhelp them bring down the monsters in the fastest time ever, which makes for great experience for everyone! Another job for people who like to be around other people and have fun making more friends. Alot of fun with this job when you get the hang of it.
Blue Mage - Coming out in the next expansion, this mage type job will have the abilities to learn the abilities of your enemies! With so many monster abilities out there, this job is just an adventure waiting to happen!!!
What ever job interest you the most, pursue it. This game is awesome man, I hope you come back, especially to Caitsith :D
02-18-2006, 11:11 AM
Yeah man...Being a black mage was very very fun when i first started playing, but it was tedious.
how long did it take you getting your 75/37?
03-07-2006, 04:12 PM
this was my frist mmorpg mabye bit to harsh for me mabye now i would love it but back then i just didnt unstand it
03-09-2006, 09:13 AM
It takes time, hard work and dedication to reach level 75. I cant give you an exact measurement, but that shouldnt be the deciding fact on if someone should play. Its a great game, and I hope anyone who gives it a try has a great time.
03-13-2006, 12:31 AM
As an update, yes, I did get this game again and im loving every minute of it.
Im currently in Jeuno with my Taru 20 BLM/1 WHM. Working on my chocobo quest, then im going to start leveling up my subjob. Im having so much fun!!
08-19-2007, 08:45 PM
i know this thread is old but i couldn't find a newer one. im about to start playing and i was wondering if you could play this on a laptop. like how would you move and stuff? cuz the arrow keys are used for something else... it would be kind of awkward to move using the number keys...
