A little info for anyone here who is unfamiliar with FFXI, the Bradys FFXI guide has become legendary amongst the FFXI community, mainly due to the misinformation, errors and poor advice it offered. So bad was some of the misinformation that it had a massive negative impact on the game for many years, even players who had never read it, have been affected in some way or another.
A good example would have been the misconception that a BST pets caused their entire party to take an XP penalty, which led to them being shunned by parties for years, and their are people 7 years on, who thanks to the guide still believe it. And I'm sure most of the older FFXI generation have at some time or another partied that DRK/BLM or back up healer WAR/WHM who were following the advice of the guide.
Whilst it still offered some decent info to the new beginner, in the form of quest walkthroughs and crafting recipes etc, the vast majority of owners considered it a big joke, so with that said what would be your thoughts if Brady were approached to write the next guide?
Would you like to see a Brady's FFXIV guide?
