    Its not a Mirage --

    We've simplified a lot of the grind, as our idea of the main game should be the focus of the content / events / fights / missions / etc
    NOT the grind of EXPing for weeks on end, skilling up forever.. and so on.

    We've done a lot to keep the feel... but its a balancing act that we try to stay on top of.
    Its not game genie mode so its not drop dead easy like retail is mind you..
    You could die to something as silly as Leaping Lizzy

    But by the same token it wont take you 6 months to get to 75 and people are always looking for more people for events!

    On the actual site, there are links to discord or even the forum. You can live talk to us or anyone online at the time.
    as well as directly connect to the players themselves via their linkshells.

    The forum itself contains a lot of background information about the server.

    The link for the server should either be in my Signature or in the very first post.

    I'm interested !average population?

    Hi Spliffy,

    This time of year server population bounces around a bit - there are about 40 solid players but average on is around 25 at the moment.
    I'd say come check us out anyway, always welcome either way!

    We're constantly adding new content and updates!

    NEWS Shinra Private Server FFXI - Update

    I wanted to take a moment and update some of the old information on the server - as we have never stopped working on it.

    Some of the following information is new and some of the information has not changed!

    Current server level is still 75 with plans to release a second setup for 90 once we get further into WOTG content.

    Playable content in expansions are:
    1. ZM
    2. CoP
    3. ENMs
    4. BCNMs
    5. ZNMs up to a point with working Camera / Zeni Accumulation
    6. Avatars Favor Functioning For Die Hard Summoners!
    7. Bahamut V1, Bahamut V2, Apoc Nigh
    8. Last Verse, Rank 10 in nations are all Obtainable
    9. A Crystalline Prophecy Start to Finish
    10. A Kupo Moogle Detat (Started Work looking forward to finishing)
    11. TOAU storyline Start to finish
    12. Alexander Fight for Alexander Summon!
    13. A handful of Assaults have been coded and functioning!
    14. Nyzul Isle floors 1-100 are Completable!

    Items we have started working on for implementation and shooting for a soon update include:
    1. Salvage V1
    2. Salvage V2
    3. Einherjar
    4. Rune Fencer
    5. Geo
    6. Pup
    7. Besieged
    8. Conclusion of AKMD
    9. A Shantoto Ascension
    10. Campaign
    11. WotG Storyline Expansion
    12. Loads of missing NMs from WotG

    We have done our best to try and release the content as it was released originally so people can have a natural progression through the game and thus far the people that have done it have either enjoyed it, or got killed by our unforgiving mobs

    We have removed the grindy aspects of the game involving leveling / skilling up and such to where we could to assist in more content game play and less silly grueling game play.

    Movement speed is about 2x retail when NOT fighting enemies - Once you have any sort of enmity your movement speed defaults to retail speed so that mob fights didn't need super buffs to keep up with players.

    EXP is about 8x old retail on mobs and about 4x retail on books/pages

    Skilling up weapons/attributes can be done 2 ways, by either taking advantage of our logon campaigns and purchasing the books with points or by doing it the old school way actually fighting mobs.

    The forums have been completely redone
    Server completely rebuilt on brand new server hardware
    Discord Channel is Available

    A lot has changed as we are about to hit our 5 year marker on this project in November! We look forward to continuing out the different expansions packs of the game! If you've played on our server we would welcome you back to take a look at the changes if you haven't been recently.

    If your new we welcome you to come take a look at how far the setup has come from its original post!

    Things we have done away with
    1. Custom Shop - This became an issue with crafters losing out much like the moogles on retail and not able to make things people needed when they could just buy from an NPC
    2. Movement speed regardless of attack or stationary, as this required unnecessary buffs on mobs which lead to us fighting our own systems and players in super speeds that was unnecessary for battle.
    3. AH stocking - We shifted our economy to strictly Player base so all prices and rewards can be determined by the players without any sort of admin hindering.
    4. While Gil from mobs was slightly reduced we have increased the ability to make gil without relying on other players through out the game itself. Most of our users use gil for some items but we've come to realize in our community most people barter for the things they want. Gil is not the driving force for gains but the gear they want to acquire for each other is!

    Misc items that can be completed to show functionality but are not FULLY implemented thus far are:

    You can do the first 4 missions for SOA so that you can legitimately access the area without any special warps.

    You can the first part of AKMD while the rest is being finished.

    We invite you all to come take a peak at the system and challenge you to find your way through all the content! Should you have any questions please don't hesitate to stop in on our forums or check out our discord!
