I actually made myself stop with all the exploring, at leas for right now. I did tons of exploring r12 lancer exploring everywhere was quite exciting. Coerthas was really cool, I heckled the guards at Ishgard in hopes that they would let me in. Didn't work, so I then tried to figure if there was any other way to get there. Unfortunately, I don't have an airship or a flying gold chocobo. They keep me out of Ishgard, for now -_-;;
Mor Dhona was a place that had my nerves quite frayed, I grudgingly admit. Being an inexperienced lancer in place like that is quite an experience. I started at the south and then worked my way to the north, to get to Coerthas. I don't know how I never got attacked. Had to go through this some really narrow passages in a canyon like area. I had to sneak behind an Evil Eye or Smolenkos(can't remember which) I was so close to it that I was worried my tail might bump into it. Later, I went back to try to find a way to the place where that dead dragon was at. It looked dead from what I could see, that is. Wasn't able to get to it though >_>
I've explored a good bit of Thanalan, but not all yet. I've seen the least of Black Shroud, even though I am from there. It is rather difficult to get past the creatures that will one hit kill you in the narrow passages in Black Shroud.
Sometime soon I plan on doing more exploring. Just got kind of burnt out after finding a lot of places where I run into the invisible was saying I can't get to that area. Also with finding the question marks in Mor Dhona. Those always annoyed me in FFXI lol.
