PostSubject: Hello All!   Wed Jul 14, 2010 9:59 am

Hello.

I saw a link to your Linkshell on the MMORPG forums a few days ago while scouting for a new game to try.

I've never played FFXI before, but I am interested in trying FFIV when it comes out. I noticed that the game was available cheap on Steam and decided to give it a shot to tide me over for a couple of months. I finally got it updated and my account set up last night, created a new character, and got online for a while last night.

I'm interested in joining you guys in FFXI and FFIV when it releases. I have a newbie Red Mage on Fenrir :) I made it to level 5 before it was time to head to bed last night. I'm still learning the interface (it's ummm, different lol) but I have managed to get a feel for it after a couple of hours. I even created a macro!

At the moment, I'm reading through everything I can get my hands on trying to get up to speed. Information overload FTW!

I've been playing MMO's since EQ. Most of my time has been in EQ, Eve, and WoW. I'm finding FF pretty refreshing so far. I kinda like the slower pace of combat, and by the end of the evening, I was getting used to the movement, and actually enjoy not having to use the mouse to get around in the game.

Anyway, if you guys are willing to help show a true newbie to FFXI the ropes, I would love to join.

Thank you all for the kind welcome.

I've been ninja-browsing all the sites I can get my hands on while at work today to try to learn this game. I had no idea how big of a game this is! The FFXIclopedia site in particular is great.

Khalus, should I just send you a tell in game to be admitted into the linkshell? I'm currently in Bastok(sp?) I believe. It took a bit but I can actually navigate the city now without stopping to look at my map every 2 minutes hehe.

Also, a quick newbie question if you don't mind. I think I understand this but I want to make sure. Once I hit level 18, I can do a quest to open up my subjob. Then, I can pick say...White Mage or whatever. I then make it my main job and level it up? Then I can switch back to red mage and make my white mage my subjob, and it will be 1/2 of my main job's level. So if I level white mage to 8 and then switch back I would be an 18/8? But if I leveled it to 18, I would be 18/9? Then when I hit 20 as a red mage I would be 20/10 automatically? Is that how it works?

Thanks and I hope to see you in game tonight.

Welcome to the LS. Hope you enjoy XI as much as we all have.

"There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot."  -Mark Twain
