Everytime I get to the point where I think.. ok, I’m too tired… I’m done.. I’ve gone as far as I can in FFXI. That is when they send in an update that sparks my interest. A little carrot on a string if you will… enticing me, and making me think I should hang out a bit longer to try out a few more things… lol.
I’m still very excited about FFXIV coming out, and can’t wait to explore Eorzea on even ground as everyone else. That said, I’ve got a bit of waiting for that, and I’m not in Alpha, so I might as well be enjoying FFXI a little longer right?
You can check out the updates on here
Whitemage main for most of my little taru life, I was surprisingly not actually excited about anything new they get towards level 80. Just another tier of Cure, Protect, Shell, and a added Bar-spell of Baramnesra, which, I guess I’d be more excited about if my schedule allowed me any time for actual real party play. Meh.. (I was doing a field of Valor the other night by myself, and died to a link casting Tornado on me. I had even Flashed it, and it didn’t interrupt it well enough, and Repose didn’t stick either. Logged off wishing I’d never of logged in that night, as I lost more than what I had gained, and would have gained off finishing it. (I still have two more left, but I’ll wait till I catch someone on.)
Surprisingly the update I’m the most excited about is that Dancer’s now get Dual Weild at level 20! Woot! I will never have to play Ninja ever again! EVER! I’m very excited by this prospect. Ninja, along with Warrior are two jobs that I never enjoyed. Now I have Dancer, (finally a front line job which I do like) and I get both a provoke, and now Dual Wield! Thats just awesome!
I may spend my remaining time in FFXI going back to leveling my PUP/DNC and DNC/PUP combination.. hehe!
