    return to FFXI

    Anyone know if that "Return to Vana" thing is still going on? After a year of WoW (I know, I know), finally getting a new computer and a decent job...I am gonna come back to FFXI.

    I would really rather get my old character and stuff back than start over again, but from what I hear..Ramuh is kinda trash now anyways.

    Also, when I left the game tele's were like 500 and 1000, now I hear they are some obscene amounts?! Is this true for everything in game? Am I gonna have any hope of being able to afford anything without RMT?

    Sorry, I know this is an endgame site, but I have been with you guys since my old days of ffxi, so I thought this would be the best place to ask (refuse to waste the few braincells I have left on alla).

    I think there is a return to vana'diel part three coming up in the fall or something... Not sure though. They'll probably have them semi-regularly since it brings players back to the game which means more money for them.

    ok, your first thought is wrong honestly, yes teles have gone up in price, but so has the value of everything else
    your making more money so spending more is second nature, dont put thought into it, on bahamut teles are 2-5k, fast are 10k, but its not a problem really

    I don't think thats meriting banishing, it's a valid question. He's not saying "Am I gonna have to RMT my gear? ", but rather "Holy crap is everything so expensive only rmters can get it?" which would be more in line with the other things mentioned.

    you got it Kuno I wasnt planning on RMT (never did when i played before). Was honestly just wondering if the only way to return would be to have to do so. If it was the case then I certainly wouldn't be returning.

    Glad to here it is just an overall increase in gil per player and not RMT trash ruining servers.

    Anyways, got the new computer today and going to get everything reinstalled on monday (first day off from work in about 2 weeks).

    Honestly think that as insane as it is, I am gonna start all over from level 1,to kinda bring back the good old days. As much fun as sky and all the old end game stuff was...I think I enjoyed my time getting to end game a lot more then actual end game. I may live to regret these words though..lol

    sky and endgame really suck now due to overcrowding. I think you're doing yourself a favor starting over.

    It's really not too bad I have 3 friends now who started over rather than getting their toons back, and they don't really regret it. They had fun doing it.

    yeah... IMO, fuck starting over >.>

    I know people that have gotten rank 10 in more than one nation, but as soon as I got that 10 next to my name I knew I was done with that shit forever. And doing CoP again? No fucking way.

    I'd get my original toon back and just start a new job (new to you or new in Aht Urghan) at lvl 1 if you really want to feel like you're getting in at the ground floor.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Honestly, Nation Missions and all that other stuff doesn't bother me. I've contemplated making another toon to play on the side, but then I remember PMs, and say fuck it.

    Actually, I started a second character from scratch. All in all it has been fairly fun, all of the enjoyment of being a noob with a level 75 RDM to protect the character from monsters who want to eat him and to slaughter things that drop quest items.

    But yeah, I doubt that I will get him very far in the CoP missions. Just the thought of doing Prommies makes me a sad panda.

    yay!, new computer is running. Got FFXI and getting it all set-up now. One horrible flashback I am already having is the 14 hour update to FFXI when you first buy it

    I amso happy! WoW is just a horrible memory now. See ya'll in game in about 14 hours ^^.

    Guess I will dig around alla or something to get a world pass. I would at least like to start over on a server where I remember folks

    my sadness today comes in this phrase...
