Allright, as alot of you know, I have lately become addicted to FF XI, due to it's wonderfully fun MMORPG-edness. For those wishing to get some MMO experience in before WoW comes out, I highly suggest getting this game, because the quests are good and chalenging, The classes are varried, and through the use of your equipment, your character look is very customizable. The penalty for death is not overly harsh (1/10 the experience needed to reach your next level) and the party system is fun. To form a truely effective party, atleast 1 member from each of the standard classes should be used. So if you are interested in getting it, and want to end up on a single server, then I cna get world passes to get everyone onto Ramuh. This will let us all for a group, and rule yet another world!!!

Ach, mein Spamly. I tried before to tell people about this, and they wouldn't listen

Anyways, I'll totally get the game after I scrape up the cash for my own comp, which, thanks to my good buddy, will only take 2 or so months. Now to find a job...

I thought of buying it, but I probably wont. I have alot of things that I should do, so I don't want to get more distracted than I already am. I'm currently considering if it's a good idea getting it at christmas. But currently I don't think I want to.

Me have no credit card .

And even if I did, the only reason why I really wanna play it is to ride a Chocobo .

Are the quests solo-friendly?

There are solo and grouped quests. Most every quest can infact eventually be done solo, but it is miuch much easier with a goup to do them at the same time you level

not a harsh penalty for dying? -_-
Do you know how many times I lvld down in one day once? I was lvl 15, hit 16 4 times, and managed to slip back to lvl 15 again all times, and ended up with a lvl 15 hal-way to lvl 16. Oh well I'm just bitter because those damn goblins start chasin you for no reason.



Anyways, what's better... exp chaining small mosnters or fighting the really big one for the motheload of exp? I keep on telling my party we should chain instead because we always end up dying, but they just tell me we should do skill chains on big monsters... then everyone fails at it misserably and we end up dying. I've NEVER seen a skill chain executed properly.

Things are looking up for me right now, so I'm close (a few months) to getting my own computer. Well, that is if my luck keeps up...

That's It, I'm addicted now. There's no going back. Not until WoW comes out anyway. I'm going for a samurai with a subjob of black mage.

Edit: Screw that, that sounds kinda dumb. I think i'll go for dragoon with a samurai subjob

Sorry to resurrect this semi-dead topic, but I just wanted to get a definite answer to: Should I buy this game?

Heh. If I don't get into WoW beta I'm highly considering buying it, but I don't wanna be disappointed again like with SWG. From what I've read, it looks awesome, and I think It'll definitely keep me occuipied for at least a few months until WoW comes out. So... would you people who have played it (please don't respond if you personally haven't played it) recommend it highly?

Well, i think i got majin and jov hooked. The freeness of the classes is what really makes me enjoy this. The classes can be pretty endlessly switched around, and sub classed to make a character how ever the hell you want him to be. I suggest it, but well, you all know i suggest it, so i am going to leave any more speaking abnout it up to majin and jov

I would. I find it to be pretty fun. There are so many things to do although it's not as quest-based as WoW will be but it is kinda close considering over half of the jobs you have to do a quest to do. For any questions you might have just head over to http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/

Alright.. I'll check out that site. I been gettin most my info from http://ffvault.ign.com/. As long as the game will keep me occupied for a few months then that's great. I just really need something to tide me over till WoW.

By the way, if you guys haven't seen this, it's really really well done and cool..

http://ffvault.ign.com/?dir=movies first movie there.
