I’m a horrible quitter… ^-^
So last weekend brought a birthday party, and with the birthday party we had the chance to talk with some people we hadn’t for quite awhile. Ended up talking with the friend who got us in to FFXI in the first place. Nostalgia hit, and the hubby and I relented and decided to log back in and see what was going on in the world of Vanadiel. Our friend had apparently come back about a month or so after we quit the last time. Lots of talk of Field of Valor and level-sync’d fun, and with a little assistance of our friend, we found ourselves with a copy of Treasures of Aht Urghan that I had lost at some point, and installed FFXI on our new computer. Took a little bit of work, FFXI isn’t immediately Windows 7 friendly, but with a few internet searches, I found a version of POL that Windows 7 would accept.
Logged in, reinstated our content ID’s and had our characters back in working order. Before long Kauri and Katella were out doing Field of Valor regimes
Met up with Kinkykitty to get a new linkshell
A few days later found us in Yutunga Jungle with Kinkykitty and her friend doing Field of Valor there.
I really appreciate the fact that they give you gil with Field of Valor regimes because Katella awoke with only 640 gil to her name.. lol!
Yesterday logged in for a bit and spent some time in the Dunes with Blindrage on his Dragoon. He leveled from 12 to 19 there, the time periods that I was level sync’d with him, I myself gained over 4k in exp on my whm.. I laughed and made a comment that it would be comical If at some point I finally actually reached level 75 in the Dunes of all places. I have about 30k to go.. LOL! Not that it will matter much longer as the level cap is increasing. I’m just going to spend whatever time we end up playing not worrying about things, and just enjoying the world, and exploring. To be honest, once FFXIV comes out, I will be migrating to there, and since finances will demand a choice, it will probably be FFXIV. Not that I don’t love FFXI, because I obviously do since I can’t seem to not come back.. but I’m excited to start out on the same level and have the same amount of “game experience” as everyone else. I always contend that I started playing at the wrong time because almost everyone I knew already done so much.
but I digress…
Yesterday, I spent some time exploring in Lufaise Meadows. I had only really been there a few times, twice with Squeekers and once with my friend Eliktro…. very very long ago!
