Getting Started In Bastok? [27 Mar 2010|03:07am]

Hi! I just returned to FFXI after, well, several years. Bought the Ultimate Collection (all of the expansions) on Steam. I was actually in the original pc beta and then played off and on for a couple of years after that. Unfortunately, my old account isn't retrievable, but I'm ok with that. I actually want to start over.

I've found that as far as controls and such are concerned it's pretty much like riding a bike. A lot of it is coming back to me.

But a lot of it isn't. I'm kind of not sure where to start with my new hume RDM on Quetzacotl. I was given to understand that now you get some things early on that make leveling a bit easier? I am not sure how to go about obtaining them. I find myself worrying that I'm missing something crucial.

One thing I've definitely forgotten is reference sites and sources of information about the game.

I'd be really grateful for any tips on getting started and super appreciative for any links you guys could provide for online FFXI resources.

I hate my computers. [15 Dec 2005|07:53pm]

Yes thats right.
I hate my COMPUTERS.
First the back story of why I'm trying to reload FFXI
stupid computerCollapse )

All 3 of them in which I can rightfully play on.
CPU #1: Because it keeps telling me that something isn't there that needs to be. SO its not letting me finish downloading FFXI
CPU #2: Is as slow as fucking hell. Obviously thats the one with all my moms crap on it. And literally. Theres a ton of stupid not neccessary shit there.
MY LAPTOP: because its a big bitch and doesn't have the requirements needed to run FFXI. That makes me highly sad.

Now, I can't be lazy and sit on my ass all day playing FF. And that makes me angry. I hate computers. They don't agree with me.

I'm extremely bored obviously or I wouldn't be trying this hard.
But I'd still like to be able to play my game!!!! *shakes fist*
I've tried getting a hold of some people who know things about computers....
But none of them have answered my desperate nerdy cries.

That makes me sad in my pants

this is the file that its supposively missing::
C:\Program Files\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\sound\win\music\data\music162.bgw

ok...I can't hate CPU #2 all that much now...because the stupid missing file warning came up on my laptop too.

I don't know what to do. Someone help me. (I really do need advice.

Fairy World pass? [28 Sep 2005|11:00pm]

I just re-installed this game and would like to get back on Fairy, can anyone please give me a world pass?



[16 Sep 2005|09:51pm]

The last time I played FFXI, it was almost a year or so ago. Recently, I decided to take it up again, but I'm having some problems...

I uninstalled the game after I stopped playing it, and I reinstalled it today. Or rather, just the PlayOnline bits. It prompts me to put in my registration code, and it says that the code is wrong or something - basically, it doesn't work.

I have my old PlayOnline ID and password.

Can I use the same registration codes over again? If not, how can I get new ones? Do I have to buy the game again to get new codes?

Thanks for your help!

[ mood | anxious ]

so, i got WHM to lvl 9 today and im gonna start partying with it tomorrow after i get it to level 10. i bought all the spells and food id need until about level 15 so i dont have to go to town a lot, and i want to make a trip to sarutabaruta and fight the new Bird NM that drops the wand with MP recovered while healing+2 effect to macro in when i rest.

im leveling it in hopes that the person who runs this community and a couple other RL friends will come to my server and start playing again so i can level them quickly. and if not, i can always use sneak and invis. but i need to level BLM or SMN further to sub for it. i think im gonna sub SMN for more MP since im an elvaan and have low MP.

i want some LS members of mine to do a couple BCNM40 Worm's Turn with me so i can get enough gil to buy and astral ring or two. i say BCNM40 instead of the 20 tht they drop in because the 20 is ridiculously hard. id rather have someone else do them and i can buy the rings from them and perpetuate the flow or something, since the BCNM20 Wings of fury is so freakin hard.

i got RNG to 33 today, and tomorrow or monday ill be trying guns for the first time. maybe the sweet spot for guns will be closer to the mob so i can tp whore a little better. ill report back when i geet more info.


[20 Jul 2005|08:55pm]

what they did to the RNG job was fix it. and this is coming from an RNG. they changed the damage on ranged attacks for two reasons, so our damage wouldnt completely break the game, and two, so that we may have to actually quit TP whoring at close range and back off a bit and fire a couple shots that way. what does this mean?

1. it means it will weed out the bad RNGs who only rely on the gear they bought with the gil they bought.

2. well prolly die less in exp parties. since when a shadow is taken up it will be like when we are hit with no shadows in terms of emnity. people without shadows lose emnity when they are hit, shadows didnt do that before. the emnity just kept piling up as long as you kept your shadows up. this is why it was so hard to pull hate off a RNG/nin who used Barrage then a weaponskill immediately thereafter just a little too early.

they just finally fixed a totally broken job. and i can still do 90% of the damage i was doing before the patch? doesnt sound like too bad a thing to me.......this update will be good i promise. people will srtill invite RNG and you healers will still get fast easy exp with a good one of us in the party.

ive posted the above already on several FFXI communities ive been on and seen people being upset about the update. but what they're mostly upset about isnt the update messing up RNG, theyre mad about RNG's that are whining about the update(read as N00b RNGs). all the update means is that we as RNGs now have to move around a bit more in order to TP whore like we used to. run in, hit mob twice with hawker's, pull back to optimal range and fire an arrow, lather rinse repeat. i did this today and was fine. we just have to put in a little more work. which is a thing im excited about.

this is the results of my test with each weapon i tested with.

bow: way long range is the optimal damage. i used Great Bow +1. long range i did about 100 damage on a land worm, medium i was doing about 20% less. and close range did about 50-60% less.

Xbow: medium is the sweet spot for this weapon. i used Power Crossbow. Lon range did about 40 damage, medium was doing about 50 damage, and close was doing about 40 damage. as i got closer, i didnt seem to miss as much.

gun i didnt get to check because the gun i have is two levels above me. but i will do so soon enough.
