    Re: Final Fantasy Online [XI] - Open Discussion

    Hope you all enjoyed the large update this week:

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...b1/detail.html

    Beseiged - NM's & lvl 7 [hopefully less but much harder monsters which would help the lag problem], New features, and a whole lot more.

    they've just introduced something in the latest update called level sync. means you can party with anyone of higher level but can then designate a party member and anyone higher gets level synced with them. and the 2nd best thing is they dont have to change equipment as that gets automatically made comparable to the levelsync and the best thing is they still get experience towards their unsync'ed level.

    i tried it last night. me 43 rdm with a 67sam and a 17 mnk. it's freakin awesome!

    its the fun and less seriousness of low level but getting xp towards lvl44 and 3 ppl trio'ing in the upper part of yughott grotto managed to get 200xp on a number of occasions.

    I actually imported this when it was US only, and loved it for 6 months.

    Found a £1 copy recently, and just couldn't play it. The graphics were beyond bad. I can take simplistic, but these were just... blurry? I'm currently replaying Planescape: Torment, so it's not like i'm a graphics junkie...

    The movement I also couldn't get back in touch with. Was it really not wasd, but mouse based?

    I ended up giving up before even venturing out to kill a rabbit.

    I guess i've been spoiled over the years. I couldn't live without wasd now, unless it's isometric point and click, in which case that's more natural.

    i dont know how anyone ever plays it on just a kb and mouse
    I've always used a dual analogue gamepad. makes it work exactly like a the older console FF games.

    it was announced the other week that the level cap is to be raised to 99, a whole new region called abyssea to be added for 75+ and some low pop servers are going to be merged.Mine is being added to Leviathan.
    It's kind of annoying just as Im putting effort into having 1 lvl75 job, they go and move the goalposts!

    Favourite job so far is COR, levelled from 1-75 in 8 days

    Anyone class you want of the 5, male or female, and you can start one of the basic jobs, than at level 28 unlock a few more and subjobs!

    Its very complicated:

    ffxiclopedia.org is a great resource

    in terms of content/gameplay there's enough to last for literally years! I've played on and off for like 6 yrs with the same character. Unlike WoW, one character can be all the different classes, and there's alot, and if that wasn't enough, you have to multi-class.

    I think you can get a 30 day trial
