From the depths of my imagination
"Ukiyo,,,...Ukiyo... Wake up!!"
.... You begin to stir.. feeling your upper body being shaken by a pair of hands... attached to.. ..[i]who is this person!!#*$#!
Your vision clears and you begin to take in your surroundings...An Elezen female repairing her armor. Hume male, tall.. bald.. but rather large.. Must be a highlander.. brandishing a sword which seems so unnatural in his hands. He shakes his head and stares at his weapon. You recognize him. He used to wield this so effortlessly.. but something.. has changed. A lalafell, male, covered in dust and soot. These are the hands gripping your shoulders. There a quite a few "Adventurers" nearby. All covered in debris--in fact.. the whole "city" (if you could still call it that) is in ruins. It's hot.. humid. and smells of sulfur.
"What happened here?" you think aloud.
And then you remember...
So.. My idea on a force reroll..
2.0 starts off and we are all... get ready for it.. LEVEL 0 on everything!!!!
Now, before we cry about this. Let me continue my "story"
You stand up and steady yourself by leaning against the wall beside you... and it happens.
Flashback. The city. Alive. Dragoons "Elusive Jumping", adventurers forming parties, crafters melding materia. You hear your name and turn.. releasing the wall from your grasp.. and it's gone.
Memories quickly flood in. You were once something... powerful. Picking up the discarded highlander's blade you feel another flash...
Ifrit. Moogles. Garuda. Ogres. Misers. Chimeras.
But the blade feels heavier now.. it doesn't move like it used to. Like it's been stripped of his power.. or is it you that has been stripped?
Ok.. sorry for the cheese... but here's the skinny:
Fast forward.. oh.. 50 levels or so..
Success!!! You sheathe your blade and examine your spoils. As you kneel you remember the day you had awaken from Dalamud. This blade.. this very blade that once felt so foreign and unsure of it's master now is an extension of your very being. You've felt this way before about very recently as you began to take up other professions. Curiosity demanded further explanation to this-- as other adventurers seem to recall a pre-Dalamud arms proficiencies that now are "defunk"...
You sigh.. and continue rummaging through your spoils.. Gil... Crappy gear for the Auction House.. and .. ... something shiny!!!! You grasp for it immediately and...
Flashback. Raiding. Job Changing. "Go White Mage, Uki." "Toto Run, go Monk, please Uki"..
This shiny.. something.. looks like materia.. but.. none like you've ever seen.. How did it invoke these memories?? What would happen if I placed it in these Claws i have laying around?
You attain Monk 50!
So.. My thought.. if you hadn't guessed it.. and maybe it's something that i prefer.. but as content pre 2.0 ages so quickly.. i wouldn't mind re rolling to level 0 and working my way up to it.. If you could use this singular reroll of a job to obtain some item you could meld to a piece MH or Off Hand gear to unlock something you leveled in 1.XX
Echo Materia? Non Class specific. Rare/Unique. Can be obtained by certain mobs.. NMs.. or by a repeatable quest.. But you need to experience 2.0 from "the beginning"
