Hi, I decided to give FFXIV another go a few days ago. I built a PC for this game, played about a month, was frustrated with the game and quit. Knowing it is still "free", I got the urge to play again. I almost went back to XI, but then remembered the 10,000 things I was in the middle of and it just sounded like too much right now. That's off subject though.
Anyway, I got a few general questions as I know some changes have been made after I left.
* Is there a way to search for someone online, equivalent to FFXI's /sea all "playername"?
* Is there a way to see how many people are online on your server at the moment? (FFXI: /sea all)
* I understand they are making changes to make partying more applicable. Is there a way to actually search for a party or look for other people searching for a party?
* Are most players hanging out in a single location? I started a new character in Gridania and have seen very few other players, even at leve counters and camps.
I'll probably have more questions soon, but I'll start with those. Thanks for any help.
