So I played FFXIV right upon release, but like most, I was a little dissatisfied with a few things. The highest I ever got was rank 14 THM.. but leveling at that point was so slow(along with the battle system) I couldn't bear it. Also, I LOVED playing a WHM, so not having a true healer in the game really turned me off. I however, LOVED the crafting system. But truthfully, I never gave it a chance. All my friends left and my husband wouldn't even buy the game. I suppose I was lonely. It's NOT that I didn't have enough patience... I mean, I played FFXI for years, even before they had the Level Sync system in place. :)
But now I have checked out the updates, logged in a few times and already 'tested' some low level characters and am REALLY excited to come back.. Oh.. and the atmosphere... <3
My question is, do you think it's too late for me to come back if I really dedicate some time to this game? I don't need my hand held. I enjoy learning things through experience. I just want people to talk to.. or hang around with. I see a lot of the already players that are already at max level on some jobs, so would there even be players leveling in the lower level zones anymore? Do you think its really hard to get into an LS these days? Is everyone pretty welcoming to new players? I haven't chosen a server, nor even a Race, hah (I'm very indecisive here). I would really enjoy playing an Archer (and yes I know arrows can be expensive, but I do enjoy the crafting), or even trying a THM/CON again.
Anyhoo, let me know your thoughts.. :) Thanks in advance ^^;
