That would help wouldent it? Well, I prefer Rabinastre, due to FFXII Being my favourite final fantasy so far. and my most liked starter city would have to be .....L summin.....meh yall know what im talkin about, the pirate one! :D And at the risk of sounding like a TOTAL noob.......whats a linkshell? *flinches*
Limsa is a good starting city.
And a linkshell, or LS for short, is what other games call "Guild", "Clan" etc.
Getting a Linkshell is the way to go (preferrably a good/active one :)
