By beta pics you mean a single image that was photoshopped?

Granted I didn't explore all that much, but having chosen the Bastok region at the time, all aspects of the city were open, Zeruhn Mines, Gustaberg, the Highlands, and Valkurm were up. Was also warped to Behemoth's Dominion for the end event to take on KB.

Nope. We had the vanilla FFXI (base version) areas at the start of XI beta, i.e. 3 nations + Jeuno and everything in between, though those above a certain level were given the option to test ROZ in addition to XI base later on.

And I think the player level cap at the time was 50.

Dude, it's Sage Sundi. He's FFXI's version of Chuck Norris.

LOL ..thats awesome keeper. Thanks. If Sage is the chuck of FFXI.. then what is Tanka? So he picked the bearded guy.. On the opening movie of XI , When all the people of the three nations was walking up.. one of those people looks like sage to me.. and I also remember thinking that i might be able to customize a character to look like me .

Everyone started out with new characters, and leveled normally. at first only the original zones and jobs were playable but like half way through the beta they opened up the zilart zones and jobs. The level 81 guys were ffxi staff like Sage Sundi in that pic, most of them kept there lvl hidden though, but you could see from the level of the gear. The only time they played was during the end of the beta event where everyone was teleported around to kill HNMs, although really the only people that could even touch them were the GMs, lol.

Hm. That pic of Sage Sundi reminds me of a very strange experience I had as a newbie in the Palborough mines (in 2005). I had a deadly fight with some bats, when suddenly three Paladins (all of them having the same face - the one in the Sagesundi Pic) appeared and started saving my **** with cures.

But the strangest thing was:

One of them was Blue (as in the Pic),
the second White,
and the third one PINK.

And no, I didn't take any drugs back then.

maybe they was deciding on which color to make the armor?

Well, possibly. But then again, those three guys were behaving like a bunch of Santa Clauses, waving here and there to passing players and curing + Shell/Protecting anyone who got too close. In hindsight, I think those were some developers on vacation, but I can't remember the names (I was busy fighting scaryscary BATS from ****!)

In the beta it was all races and classes from the base game were available. The game was already out in Japan and more or less done at the time of the NA beta. Then SE decided to add Zilart to the NA beta but you had to have a char level 40 or above I believe it was to activate Zilart. I got to level 47 war myself. The highest you could get in the beta was 70 at the time but nobody got past level 55 because the 2nd limit quest was too hard. Not enough people at 55s to do a successful run.

Heres some other pictures if your interested

At the last event it was kinda bugged and you could take chocobos in dungeons

Here was a GM, only time i seen them fight stuff or raise people.

Heres another picture from it, GM told us to get into a line he was giving out fireworks. lol

We took about 60+ people to try and take down regular behemoth with call for help on it so we could all attack.

Most likely they noticed how their level 50 HNM became quite pushovers at 75, and didn't want to see it again.
