Hello all, new to the game but not to MMOs. Pinata Schroubles, THM.
#53 Oct 14 2010 at 9:43 PM Rating: Decent
Been playing since SE launch, and I'm enjoying it very much! Haters gonna hate.

I played FFXI for a while but never got my main job past 40 because of lack of playtime. Then I played WoW for a really long time, and came back to FFXI a few times because it was my first MMO and I love it. I had vain hopes of AF1. I'd been looking forward to FFXIV for a long time and it's finally here! Yay! I'm a slowbie but I'm having a great time.

HI ALL!!

Name: Leilani Wildfire
Server: Besaid
Race: Miqo'te

In real life based in UK (so GMT player).

Played FFXI 2006-2010 with RDM WHM BLM BRD SMN SCH at 75 and when level cap was increased I found there was no point to play the broken game anymore.

I'm really enjoying FFXIV (yes, I am one of the few) and I am looking forward to all the new updates etc.

Poke me when you see me! :)

Hello, I'm a Plainsfolk, Lalafelle named Howard Lovecraft. I played FFXI for about five years (mainly playing as BRD, BST and THF) on Fenrir and I plan to continue with FFXIV indefinitely.

I'm playing on Central Standard Time (in Chicago) and my play times range from evening to night on some weekdays and sporadically on the weekends.

I'm looking to take my time ranking up crafting, gathering and magic/melee jobs in parallel and I'm looking to join some light-weight linkshells for social aspects and rank advancement. I hope to see all of you on Besaid!

Greetings, everyone! I'm glad to call Besaid my home. I choose this server because RP servers tend to have good communities, and Besaid is no exception.

Lore and story are very important to me in MMOs and I enjoy being in an environment where others feel the same. I play a Wildwood Elezen named Rowyne Moonsong, a Conjurer from Gridania exploring the world to unlock the secrets of her past.

I actively played FFXI for four years on Siren, where I was one of the leaders of a linkshell named Kindred, a social/leveling/crafting linkshell. Kindred has now moved to FFXIV and to Besaid.

Anyway, hope to see everyone in game!

Hi guys I've started playing FFXIV for the first time, I'm currently following online guides to find my feet.

My IGN is KratosDiamon just like my username, and I'm very interested in RP'ing on this server.

P.S. I'm male, 20, and live in the UK.

If you're interested in Rping then you should really look into the RP Coalition, there's a link to in on the LS list thread, after the LSs themselves.

Hello all I'm Wapa Sanapa, character name is the same, and I have just joined the game after doing exhaustive research on how I should approach the leveling, I just decided I'll be taking all the dps classes sans mages around even levels...so yeah..and then I gotta try out the crafting...and I'll be playing regularly but restricting my schedule so I don't end up "losing" myself because I have a penchant for playing games for long hours and neglecting other important duties...whew! :)

I chose Besaid because of a lot of forum lurking and hearing about this being an "unofficial rp server" and I enjoy the kind of players who are attracted to that kind of environment although I don't rp much myself. Hope to meet you good people in game!

Welcome Wapa Sanapa, hope you enjoy the game and the server.

Your idea on how to skill up is valid and effective but I hope how much time consuming it will be once you get to 25+ on each class.

If crafting isn't something that you enjoy then leave if for last or not do it at all but if on the other hand is something you take plasure from then you might as well skill it up at the same time. DoH Guildleves don't count towards the max number of fighting ones, they give money and enable you to create some gear for your fighting classes. They also bring in Gil but that will come easilly enough.

Hello all I'm Elios Duo and I just started playing yesterday. I'll be playing in limited spurts throughout the week but more often during the weekends, I chose this server based on word of mouth.

I want to take Lancer all the way, but I'll probably be trying out a little bit of everything when I get a chance...I'm very new to all this including MMO's, it's been kind of quiet on this server but at least it helps me relax...looking for some similar laid back players to have fun, explore the world, kill some baddies etc...anyway see you around :)

I guess I should re-introduce myself... I don't play Miqo'te anymore, got tired of everyone being a cat so I figured I should make a new character now or never while the game is still new and I haven't achieved THAT much yet.
Grinding my THM to 28 again will be interesting but I am getting there slowly :)

So, my name's Black Mamba in the game and I currently have two retainers called Venom and Poison.

Give me a wave, poke, hug, cuddle, gil, items, shards (you choose) in the game - and I'll be your best friend.

My linkshell (Superheroes) is very small and actually only have 3 members so far, but hey one server can't have that many superheroes, right? ;)

Welcome back!

One thing that I didn't quite get is why have a LS of only 3 members but if you just want to be with a small number of RL friends or something I guess I can understand.

If that is not the case you might want to consider joining Vagrants Requiem, this past week we got a nice influx of new people just starting out so we now have a good mix between high and low rank players.

Last night the high rank ones even went back to some old classes to join some new ones on lower leves.

Im new to this server, had a character on Figaro and Saronia but found them to be seemingly dead in the community aspect. The NPCs talk more than the people XD I find the game to be extremely boring when there is no community in it. Looking to try again on this server so I am once again giving it a shot. Looking forward to meeting people on this server. If any linkshells out there take low lvl characters Im in :D My Name is Precis Newman in game

It seems quite a few people restarting anew character decide to come to Besaid, great!

In regards to LSs, you might want to look at the list on the top thread and see which better suits your style of play and such, my own LS is there as well!

Hullo Besaid!

I am totally new to the game. I count myself lucky to have found a nice LS to belong to so soon. I am currently doing that enjoyable learning curve thing, exploring and having much fun! And a few frustrations as well, as always with a new game.

When it comes to MMORPGs I've played too many for my own good, but some stand out as more enjoyable than others. I have fond memories from having played these: ClanLord, SWG, Shadowbane, EVE, WoW, EQ 1 and 2, Runes of Magic, FFXI, Warhammer, and LotRO (not to mention a bunch of MUDs, but that is too long ago!).

I am a man playing a female character, because I couldn't resist playing a miqo'te ^^. My timezone is GMT+1, and I hope to see you all in Eorzea!

Hi, been on besaid since december and been looking at zam since then too but only now decided to join the forums.
Hoping to make some friends and get a group to play with seeing as so far no one really likes to talk where ever i am in-game, they're to focused on mining,etc.
Btw where do i get those sweet character sigs?

Hi, nice to see another one in Besaid, Vagrants Requiem is a LS more concerned about creating a comunity of people that help each other than just leveling up or taking part of end game at the moemnt so if you're looking to have people to chat with it might be of your liking. You can find more informatioon on the LSs' post or on the general List on this forum.

In regards to then sigs you can get yours here.

Hello Besaid!
As you can tell from my Sig, I'm a complete newbie to this server, Siddeon Tergaru came into existence only two days ago.
I played on the Bodhum server as a Lalafell before Christmas, but my old PC wasn't really any good for playing this game back then, so I eventually dropped out due to frustration and schoolwork, I don't feel like playing there anymore.
So only recently did I manage to get a nice new desktop which can run the game like a charm, I figured I may as well start again!

I'm a UK resident, therefore a GMT player, 19 years old, and male. While I am mildly interested in RP, I would rather get into a casual LS as soon as possible (I am checking the LS list, by the way), and take part in RP once I feel ready. I also have the full version of FRAPS, so I'm hoping to make some nice vids later on, I also like to use Vent or TS.

I hope to see some of you in-game!

Long long time ZAM lurker, just started my char afew days ago and joined my misses on Besaid server!

Umm.. Played FFXI for about 4 years(75 PLD, RDM, BLM, WAR, SAM, NIN, 100 Bone&Leather Crafts), did pretty much everything that could be done in the game end-game wise(Sky/Sea/HNM/Ein/Salvage). Really enjoyed it but quit awhile ago.

I'm from UK, but live in France currently with my misses(another FFXIV player!). Currently just relaxing leveling crafts/jobs, looking forward to all the patches that are going to be released. Hope to see you all ingame! :)

Although Besaid is the most active server forum, the more the merrier.

PS: While updating the LS list thread it appears that BASF has little to no movement latelly, can you please confirm whether you guys still ingame?

Our website's been fairly slow the last couple months, but as far as I know, the shell is still around. I've been waiting for the PS3 version to play, but I know it's on hold. If they cancel it, I'll have to upgrade my video card before I can play on PC.

I'll try to get Gadhelyn to come in and confirm there's still people from BASF in-game.

Hey all,

This thread's been quiet for a while it seems, but it seemed like an appropriate place to introduce myself to the FFXIV community. My in game name is Taan Amaroq, a fresh and bewildered player on Besaid. I currently play FFXI too, though I've never been anywhere near the endgame!

I'm hoping to get straight in at the social end of the game in hopes that that will make the learning curve somewhat less extreme. I'd love to hear from anyone in game and if you're a linkshell holder with a place for me, I'd be grateful of that too!

See you online!

Hi everyone, my name is Cynde and I kinda sorta just started playing FFXIV. (Picked the Besaid server cause I love FFX). Anyways like I said I kinda just started. I made my character a long time ago, but stopped cause I couldn't get interested in the game, but I am trying to make an effort cause I loved FFXI. My character's name is Cynde Free and I'm a level 10 conjurer and nothing else (hahaha...) I'm going to try being a healer, but right now I'm just kinda lost in the world. Haven't really talked to anyone or joined anything, but I am really hoping that changes today cause I think this game would be a lot more fun if there were friends on there that I could talk too : ) So hope to see you all around!
____________________________
FFXI: Use to be on the Kujata server. I think it fused with another world now...but my name was Cynde, but it was taken and now it's Momophi.

FFXIV: Cynde Saith (lol forgot what I put as my last name for a while there...) and I am on the Besaid server : )

Welcome back to the game and server.

If you are looking to be a healer then the concensus is that Thaumaturge class would be the most appropriate to do but with the introduction of the jobs this summer this could easily change.

At rank at you probbaly would do best to join behests in Black Ruch, Bentbranch or Bearded Rock along with r10 guildleves, once you get to r13-15 you can also look into joining behests in r20 camps along with these leves.

Hello! Just started back on FFXIV, I played for a month or so after launch but my laptop couldn't handle the game very well where I was at the time so I took a break. I used to play FFXI since it released with sporadic breaks during the years. Thankfully now that I'm at a place with better wireless my laptop can handle the game (with plenty of lag though =/) But I'm willing to tough out the lag and lowered graphics to play until I work up enough money for a desktop. I just made a character on Besaid after not liking my old server as much. My in game name is Hachi Shibuya.

Looking forward to meeting new people, I'm on quite a lot so look me up =)
