    My question is, Is there a real notable difference in farming HMPs in sky during a campaign as not during a campaign? a friend told me they didnt think lights or cells really made much difference at all, like very low percentages. I was expecting AH prices to drop a bit but they seemed to go up for some reason on my server during the campaign, but just slightly up.
    There is a precise value of red lights required to have HMP become a possible drop according to devs. I think it's 150% but could easily be wrong. ^^;;; As long as it's 150 or lower, just using a red cell on every fight will be enough to compensate for no campaign. No cell + no campaign + no procs = No HMP tho.

    It wasn't anywhere near long enough since the last VW campaign, so not everyone likely to farm had stones refilled enough for HMP supplies to go up enough to drop prices.

    Just trying to talk myself out of not coming back to the game.... What's the current situation with monk, and with Smithing 100 would I be able to generate a decent Gil income? (I've got monk relic 95 and vereth 90 and I think I had those hth from the last expansions fire boss.

    Monk isn't good. Crafting requires the Relic shield.

    But the game allows you to catch up fast. Main jobs used are PLD,RUN,GEO,SMN,BRD,WHM,RDM

    Might want to replace the RDM with COR there. A good RDM is always nice to have, but it's rarely ever considered essential whereas a COR can fit into any group even with minimal investment (hence all the COR mules) so it's a decent option for a new/returning player

    Monk is fine, it just takes a good deal of investment. I wouldn't fault someone for being a MNK anymore than I would fault them for being a DRG.

    Crafting requires a Escutcheon to matter outside of personal uses.

    Gil has always been a joke for awhile now.

    I'm not a returning player but this is a problem new players would have to face so I figure that it's appropriate to ask this question here.
    I got a new laptop (windows 10) and the controller doesn't work properly with it. The D-pad doesn't work, the triggers for ctrl and alt are set as up/down on the dpad and two other buttons correspond to left/right for no discernible reason. I remember that I had this problem before at the very least.
    I already tried switching to controller setup E which is how i managed to get all of the other buttons to work.
    The gamepad works perfectly fine on POL.
    Is there a solution to this? I'd prefer one without installing new drivers but at this point I'm annoyed enough to say fuck it.

    I'm returning. Fucking lost as shit.
    While at the same time I seem to remember how to play the game. I'm astounded with the ease I am able to hop back in.

    Which type of controller is it?

    Yeah. it's a little wonky because I started/never finished a lot of things and I'm having to sort my mind on what I was doing when I quit.
    Mostly trying to do mission cleanup atm.

    Me and a friend just transferred to Asura from Sylph.
    I suppose one of the concierges would be a decent spot to find an LS right now?

    So I'm thinking of starting up FFXI again but I'm having trouble navigating the POL website to reactivate my old account (the interface has been changed). Any tips would be helpful.

    With Blizzard announcing a fully supported Classic server on the way and a few other titles that have followed suit. Would you guys be excited if SE announced a lvl75 server? Something fully supported. I know they're down to a skeleton team, so it's not going to happen. But with this trend of classic servers becoming a thing, I wonder if it's something they are thinking about it.
