From what I've heard the last major content update that FFXI will receive Rhapsodies of Vana'diel chapter 3 arrives in November. In 2 months it will be 10 years since I started there. How about everyone else?

I still have some old memes. Although the first is recent.






Edit: One of my favorites...

It wasn't just the learning curve but the patience curve as well.

I still remember some people who were willing to try synths during a exp pt only to get hit by the mob and instantly lose everything involved in the synth... leveling crafts was brutal.

The game was fun, its too bad they didn't keep some of the more interesting aspects of XI in XIV

I'm hoping to see the game to the end although the first addition of the last scenario did leave a couple of things to be desired.
I'm about to finish my Nirvana, which has been a long time project and dream of mine.

Other then that, keep your Gjallarhorn bard while I consult one of our Idris Geomancers.

As for typing spells? I actually do for a lot of spells on my mage jobs, the basics (cures, haste, pro/shell, erase and the more common -na spells) have macros, but the rest is typed or casted from the menu.

You have my respect for finishing a Mythic even if it's easier now then it was in the past. Those are still the hardest weapons to build.

that's odd, I heard that they make XIV because XI failed and didn't sell well wasn't XIV a remake?

FFXI never failed, in fact it square stated it drew in more revenue than any other FF game they've ever created. The game was only designed for a 5 year life span and It has lasted 13 years now. FFXIV has grown bigger than FFXI was in it's prime however.

Edit: I wish they could reskin FFXI or even upgrade it to a newer generation of graphics and bring back the original game and mechanics.

However they stated that because of the sheer size of FFXI that it would take numerous years to rebuild or re texture.
