FFXI was my first MMO and it holds a special place in my gamer heart. Although I barely scratched the surface of what the game has to offer I have very fond memories of the game. Unfortunately, when I played it I just did not have the time to dedicate to level past my mid-30's, but I still had a blast. That was almost 7 years ago, I have even less time now =/
After being let down with FFXIV (although there might be hope after all according to some of their updates), I thought I would check in on FFXI.
I am very close to buying the ultimate collection and returning to my favorite virtual world, however, I have a few questions before I do.
I do not mind grouping, in fact, I prefer it. However, I don't have the time to sit around with the green ! above my head for hours on end hoping for an invite. Are there parties forming often? If I play something other than a War or Whm can I expect a group quickly?
I have read soloing is a little more viable now. Is this true? Can I pop in the game for an hour and just kill a few rarabs on my own? I guess I could do that in the past, but is it actually worth the effort now?
Hearing that groups stick to Quifim and Valkurm sort of makes me sad, does no one go to the higher places?
How is the economy? I will be starting a brand new character with 0 gil. Will I be able to survive?
Lastly, are quests for various things (subjobs, air passes, etc) still in? I would hate to think of them just being given out now.
Thanks for reading guys and thanks for any help.
