I turned on my FFXI account this week, as it had been 3 months, and I didn’t want Katella to get deleted. I logged in and was able to try out the Level Sync system, which I absolutely love. I was able to play my whm (73) with Blindrage’s Paladin (Now 52). Only complaint about the Level sync so far is that they didn’t have it 2 years ago when I started, when there were always friends on to play with.
After Blindrage got sleepy, I ended up being able to skill-up my club with my friends from Dark Eden, who amazingly enough.. there were quite a few on! Audessa, Cozmos, Frohike, Bobbyk & Gorath. It was quite fun, and I got Hexa Strike also!! That was a goal I had been working on off and on for awhile, it was nice to login and have something sucessful happen.. 🙂 Audessa also got Hexa Strike right before I had to logout. I looked at the new weaponskills, and was drooling a bit, but I have to be realistic.
It would probably take far too much time than I am would be able to put in. I would have to first, do enough assault missions to get the appropriate rank of captian, (50 successful assaults if was perfect each time to get enough points, and more if not)
and then once I got the rank, I’d have to be lucky enough to be on a run where #2. the whm weapon dropped (Werebuster), and #3. I could have it. #4 Have the NPC hold it while I Complete three more time consuming quests for Naja, #5 get my club skill to 250, and #6 I think I might have to be level 75 to equip the weapon anyway…. /sigh.. It may not occur ever in Katella’s lifetime.
On the bright side, The exp increase is a nice change as well. I actually played Kauri’s character last night for a little over an hour, and easily leveled from 9 to 12. It was so nice!
I am hoping that I continue to get better (health wise), so hopefully will be able to play longer than a month this time, but only time will tell.
Decided to make some goals and keep them simple, and hopefully obtainable, since I’m destined to be a casual & random player.
Pick Four focus jobs & goal levels:
