    XI Fenix Server - rising from the ashes!

    Fenix Guildwork
    Facebook
    Wiki


    Thanks for checking out our post! We're a 75 server with lots of bells, whistles, and sprinkles on top. Our staff consists of private and retail server veterans, whose goal is to provide a server where the population is happy and treated fairly. We strive to be the best private server we can be, and we'd love for you to stop by!

    We've been around for a while now, but we've recently changed hosts and upgraded our physical server. We're examining everything from the ground up to be sure it's in tip-top shape. As a result, we're rolling out in a beta-esque style, relaunching with new goals and new equipment that's ready to make Fenix a great place to play!

    Fenix NOW
    We're undertaking a huge "housekeeping" project to shine up the original FFXI content - our goal is to be free of bugs, missing content, and glitches that may still be present on other private servers. We have a powerhouse of coders working behind the scenes to make Fenix the best private server out there, and we've already made some huge headway!

    After that, we're putting our noses to the grindstones working on battlefields that will unlock a multitude of new content and equipment for you to pursue! This will include a brand new storyline, monsters strong enough to exp on, upgraded relic weapons, augmented gear, original 75+ gear, points, and more! We're very excited to bring this to the server, and hope you are too!

    If you log in and don't see much action going on, we implore you: Bring your friends, your forum members, your Discord chat-mates, your Facebook feed-readers, your complete strangers, your neighbor, your pets, everyone and anyone to Fenix. The best way to know we're having a quality relaunch is with your feedback and your presence! We've always valued the player's feelings over all else, and we will continue to do so. But to do that, we need you online and ready to fight!

    Please view The Fenix Wiki if interested, the front page has everything you need to know, including our How to Join guide. See below for the highlights.

    What Makes Us Unique
    • We support Character Data Transfers from other servers! You can even bring relics. Click here for more info.
    • Fenix sports a unique Points & Rewards System for coveted drops. Rewards are granted in the form of points for completing major story events and defeating top-tier monsters & bosses from each FFXI expansion present on Fenix. The points can then be used to obtain the gear dropped from some of the toughest foes in Vanadiel! NEW: Drops have been added back into their respective pools and custom drops have been added as well!
    • We're on Discord. If you haven't tried it, you'll love it! Hop on and chat with us! (Mic not necessary)
    • Fenix is now running all zones on their own instance! This means that if one zone goes down because of a crash, NO other zone goes down. And since it has to load less to launch it, this means the zone restart upon such a crash is only a few seconds. Thank you Lagian for making this possible!

    Server Information
    • Connect to us in Windower with the following address: login.fenix-xi.com
    • Level cap is 75.
    • Chains of Promathia content is NOT level-capped.
    • Starting gil is 10, but players get 10,000 when they register with us.
    • Outposts unlocked upon character creation.
    • Explorer Moogle teleports are always on.
    • Experience point gain is increased by 3.5x.
    • Crafting skill-up rate is increased by 4x.
    • Fame gain rate is increased by 5x.
    • Increased movement speed (about 2x, but feels like more).
    • FoV/GoV/Level Sync = on and ready for action!
    • Custom player commands for teleporting, open-anywhere shops, and more.
    • Stocked AH and shops at 2008 prices.
    • Custom crafting center (just type @fenix to instantly teleport!) with loaded NPCs, who pass out GP and synthesis support when traded certain items!
    • Functioning Help Desk and Ticket system to get any issues resolved quickly and efficiently. (Currently being upgraded to load more quickly!)
    • Recently upgraded host and physical server!
    • Fenix Supplies on Google Drive to store everything you need to get started.
    • And so much more! We've got our noses to the grindstone pushing out new and fixed content unique to Fenix! Click here for our wiki's Server Information page!

    Updates For 2017:
    • Fenix Economy has been implemented! See our update page for details!
    • We have a website in beta that shows online members, auction house stock, and our custom modded item stats: status.fenix-xi.com
    • We are actively working on a completely new storyline dungeon. Here's some teaser videos. We hope to have a alpha test server opened up to the public for this by the end of the month!
    • Also in the works: the mythic quest! We're closer than ever to making this happen, and we're very excited to roll it out.
    • During our platform upgrade, we dealt with some pretty horrific lag issues. We have located the problem and corrected it! No more lag! It complements our almost non-existent crashes.
    • We have brought on two new Community Managers (CMs) - Wadski and Volkov! They're working tirelessly to report bugs and submit fixes, along with keeping the player base happy and events running!
    • Our head admin Lagian has submitted way too many fixes to list. We have things working on Fenix that not a lot of servers have fixed! Our server stability since relaunch has massively improved, and our help desk ticket system is almost bored! Most of our fixes are listed here. Game-breaking issues are a thing of the past!
    • We've done further tweaking to weapon skills that some players were unhappy with, and we've received some great feedback.
    • Claustrum got a couple more buffs. You can see them on our website.
    • Force spawned HNMs now function.
    • Dynamis has had a huge overhaul and is running as smooth as butter. We continue to work to make it even better.

    Feel free to ask me anything at all here or anywhere you can find us. See you in game!

    Last time I was on there was 15 people online

    Seems like this server and another parted ways and this one is fairly new.

    This server split from the old Exodus server, which I played on for about 5 months. There's a thread for that server in this section somewhere. The main reason I stopped playing was that the GM staff at the time was all over the place with their ideas about how the server should be run. Some rules would exist for awhile, then suddenly change because a different GM was on. Point values of fights would change drastically with no warning or attempt to discuss it first with the players. Basically, it was no fun being on a server with inconsistent rules.

    Fenix is being run by one group of the old GMs. I have personally continued to play on the other server which split off from Exodus. I don't want to hijack another server's thread, but if anyone is interested, they can PM me for log in details for the server that I'm on.

    Yep, thanks for replying. We've gained about 5-10 members just in this past week, as we've launched a heavy recruitment and ad campaign. There's tons of perks to joining a server in its recruitment stages, I'd recommend it! But I understand if you're looking for more people as well. Though we do still run events. Doesn't take much with our Server Transfer process, and you're not starting at level 1.

    I definitely agree with your history of Exodus. What you've detailed is precisely what I was working to stop behind the scenes, but was constantly vetoed and overridden. Fenix has a vastly different outlook with me at the helm. We'd love to see you again if you'd ever like to come swing by Viq. I think you'll like what you see!

    One awesome point to the server is that, as long as you have access to your ffxiah, you can link your char and import job levels and a handful of gear with it.

    Definitely beats starting over. Also, no crashes in over a week.

    My character is currently on Lakshmi and was wondering if I could use that character's screenshot + ffxiah's equip history from Garuda? Both are the same character.

    Aww, you must missed it. 5/23 was the last day of a 10-day one. D: Feel free to start up anyway, we can use an FFXIAH or sometimes just regular screenshots! You can always delay a transfer until later as well.

    Might consider popping in if I could guarantee character levels. However, with the LSC seemingly shut down for FFXIAH viewing, I don't have a way to verify them at the moment. Any possible alternatives?

    We can also use screenshots. Does your FFXIAH show nothing at all? It usually at least has something on there. If not, we will definitely work with you. We're not super strict about the proof. If you want to join us, we don't see any reason to hold you back!

    - We are actively working on a completely new storyline dungeon. Here's some teaser videos. We hope to have a alpha test server opened up to the public for this by the end of the month!
    - Also in the works: the mythic quest! We're closer than ever to making this happen, and we're very excited to roll it out.

    Gonna ask here for the quick and dirty. Haven't played XI in three years or so. Here is what I'm wondering:

    Can I get shit done by myself?
    Can I dual box?
    Windower+Spellcast supported?
    Can I be extremely casual but still get the good stuff?
    Does Beastmaster truly work?
