FFXi already has the msot content of any mmorpg and is still adding more,it is jsut crazy to think so many talk of games that have so little content while FFXI has tons to do.
They have recently added TRUST NPC's,this allows you to basically make your own solo party.Yes i know it detracts fro mthe MMO player>player experience but there are a lot of people who like to solo and this allows them to get the group feeling even though alone.
You can summon up to 3 TRUST NPC's and your npc fellow giving you basically 5 players.
The reason it is such a valuable piece of content and why i support it is because at this juncture there are a lot less players about and getting the help you want when you want can be really tough.If this were a brand new game,then i would say no,keep it to real players but this content and the added ability to play as a creature just adds more fun stuff to do in FFXI.
