Well, it's been a loooong time since we last had activity in this forum (10 years...I actually can't believe it's been that long). But damn it, I think it's about time to change that.

I've been in a real MMO mood lately, and was casting around to find something to play. For whatever reason I ended up thinking about FFXI and the story that I never completed there. Reading around the game, I was pretty surprised at just how much has changed. Most stuff is soloable now, with the help of Trust NPCs that you can recruit through quests, for example. And on a more personal note, Dark Knight is actually popular at endgame now - typical that as soon as I stop playing, no more flagging for party for 7 hours as a DRK... It sounded pretty appealing to me.

I'm still playing FFXIV for now, and likely will be for the next month or so at least, but I intend to pick FFXI back up once I'm done there. In the event that anyone else reads this and fancies a trip back too, some of the more interesting reading I've found can be found below:

This forum will likely get a bit more active again as and when I resub :)
"Perhaps this is what I have always wished for since that day. The loss and destruction of all. That's right, one must destroy before creating. In that case, if my conscience becomes a hindrance to me, then I will simply erase it. I have no other choice but to move forward....therefore!" - Lelouch vi Britannia/Zero, Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch

Forever an eXile and proud of it!

Well, this sounds interesting... I've been showing games from my high school and college years to my kids, and for some reason, FFXI didn't pop in my head ; I should give it a try, my 11 year old son has been enjoying LoZ Breath of the Wild lately, so he might be interested by other Japanese fantasy games...

I think my son would love to try it though!
