Hey guys. Rank 15 conj/19 phys here. I just wanted to share a positive review (generally).

Its obviously a paid beta. The combat system is pretty run of the mill, the graphics are neat etc. Theres absolutely nothing to do atm, but Im thinking that will change as the game goes from beta to live. Im liking the job system, and hope the partying combat is up to snuff.

How do you guys find groups? The only ppl on my server who use the search function are JP. And I can never get anyone to answer my shouts, tells, or /says. Are there dungeons we can do? Ive found one by camp bloodshore, cassiopoeia, but cannot ever get anyone to go in there with me. I played ffxi like 5 years ago to what, lvl 55. I remember shout not being used much, but i do recall it not being impossible to find a group. What am I doing wrong?

Also , I believe this lack of grouping and questing is the cause of most peoples complaints. Without these two aspects, the game lacks the "ten more minutes" aspect that makes mmo's so badass. Im sure during the next few months this will be fixed though. Weve all seen how polished ffxi is.

Any comments or answers are most welcome.

Maybe try using the universal translator when you are shouting will help. Press 'tab'

Or look for a linkshell that speaks your language and do leve's with them. That is what I do. If you don't have a linkshell, check the server forums here.

LS makes the game a lot more fun and things start to pick up - quest wise - when you start getting jobs to 20.

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.
