So things started to slow down at work after 2 months and I logged in to find my LS completely empty. Took a look around on ffxiah and found most if not all the LS members are no longer activeSmiley: frown It sucks because they were really helpful friendly people and before I left we had talked about doing some Delve again to help people that needed wins.

I've been mining in XIV, but only because one of the items I need for Leatherworker can only be found that way. Smiley: mad

My problem with the hunts is that, in spite of the numerous linkshells formed specifically for that purpose, there are still people with the "me first" mentality that ***** it up for everyone. At least SE had the good sense after the first week to adjust it so you can't solo the elite marks anymore.

On the bright side, the seals you receive for doing both daily and elite mark hunts have made it significantly easier to buy XIV's version of AF2 armor. I'll be getting one more piece today. Smiley: nod

Well, that helped to an extent, but there are plenty of jobs that are still easily able to solo B's if they want to (I know I can easily enough on Smn, just takes some time), and even with the adjustments to HP, B's and A's still melt when you get into the really busy time frames. Between them melting and the fact that there are plenty of people that do adhere to that "***** you, I'm not waiting" mentality, you'll have all but S's dying within a minute of them spawning, and then S's are just so hard to even see amidst the hundreds of people there that it's near impossible to do them if you're trying at bad hours of the day.

Just wanna say regarding the hunts, there are people who claim before "everyone" makes it there (whatever that means; there are ALWAYS going to be people who don't make it in time) because sometimes you will get screwed if too many show up. The thing won't be alive for long enough, or models may start disappearing off their screen and they aren't able to target the NM anymore.

I'm one of those people who will engage once I feel a reasonable enough quantity of people to fight the thing is actually there, because I'm one of those people that has gotten burned too many times by disappearing models and fights that end in 20 seconds and getting zero credit even when I was among the first to show up.

I'm right there with you as far as pulling a hunt mob if there are a reasonable number of people there. You simply can't wait for everyone to show up that's wanting to, otherwise you'll be there forever. However, I do have a problem with those that'll pull it the moment that all of their party is there, regardless of whether or not anyone else being there. I don't have an issue with that when it comes to B's, because hey, they're B ranks, but it's when it's an A, there ends up being a problem. I've come up to A's before where, outside of me, the only people at it was a single party, and the thing's already down 30% at least because:

1) They found it and only informed the other people in their party.

2) Engaged as soon as they all got there.

3) Didn't bother to let anyone else know once they started engaging because they don't care about anyone not in their party.

I know they don't "have" to wait, obviously, but it's just a lack of common courtesy, especially when other groups would patiently wait for members of that particular party to get there. Those people that often complain the most about others pulling early/demanding resets are the ones themselves that pull early the most from my experience.

I already explained my reasoning for why I don't bother waiting for more people to show if there's enough there to kill it, so I'll leave it at that.

Once they make the system such that people can't get screwed by mobs that disappear off screen and get killed in 10 seconds, I'll play it less cutthroat. But for the time being, if I'm not playing cutthroat, I get screwed.

And personally, I do care about B ranks, because that's usually all I get to fight. Almost all of my seals have come from them. As and Ss always go invisible for me before they're even engaged, assuming I even make it to one.

Hey guys! Hope everyone is well its been awhile.

So I have an itch to come back and play some FFXI it has been over a year, and I just played through some of my older FF collection as well as the new remastered 10/10-2 (10-2 has such a good job system, so sad the story and characters are ****...).

I am curious how is Lakshmi these days? Is there a community left at all or have most people migrated on to other things? Is it even worth resubbing at this point in time? I don't really feel like playing solo even though im sure lots can be accomplished alone. Have they added anything substantial in the last year or so? Ive kinda paid attention to updates, but most have seemed like quality of life and job tweaks not so much in the "stuff to do" department.

Should i just get FF14?

Population is very low 400-700 at times, I've seen quite a few people who left during abyssea/vw era coming back. I think my very random social shell would be good fit for you lol, besides that they're usually helpful and often do stuff.

Nope and I'm quite glad I quit, played for a day during free login and quickly remembered why I quit.

For what it's worth, I'm enjoying XIV, although I've lately been distracted by the Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo. Love playing as the Villager from Animal Crossing.

In case you guys haven't tried it yet, the demo characters are Mario, Link, Pikachu, Mega Man, and the Villager. The only stage you get is Battlefield, but there's an "Omega mode" which makes it more like Final Destination with no items. You can also only do solo or local wireless play in the demo, and the only other option outside of this is the Tips section in the Vault.

One bright spot: you can see the full starting roster, which made me happy, because it included Captain Falcon. Probably my second best character after (believe it or not) Jigglypuff. However, I'm strongly leaning towards either the Villager or one of the Mii Fighters as my new main.
