Hey, I am new to FFXI I've never played it an picked it up out of curiosity a day or so ago.
I've been playing MMO's of all kinds for a couple of years now ranging from Guild wars, to WoW, to Cabal, and I've played Final Fantasy games for as long as I've had the cognitive function to press the buttons needed.
Beyond that this game is brand new to me.
I've started on Fenrir, Bastok, mostly on the advice of a retired friend for location so I won't be totally lost I hope.
Real info that might be useful is short and Sweet, my name is Mike, I have a full time job and am also a full time student. Which leaves my time online to some odd spaces of times usually but I doubt that will hinder too much of my game-play or social ability in the game.
